18 October 2016 10:27 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Tyra Banks just opened up old wounds.  As a supermodel, mogul and mom, the 42-year-old is a long ways away from her earliest years as an aspiring model in Paris. As she quickly took the international industry by storm on the catwalks of the early '90s, the young Banks was immediately compared to and pitted against Naomi Campbell, one of the most iconic figures in the fashion world to this day and one of the few African American supermodels at the time. According to Banks, Campbell caused some of the "lowest times" of her life during their following 14-year rivalry, as she described during an interview on the Norwegian-Swedish talk show Skavlan.  "I got to Paris and it was »

Is NBC looking for “The Voice” round two?

The network has greenlit “The Stream,” a reality singing competition series that focuses on digital, streaming musicians, Variety has learned.

“The Stream” gives aspiring musicians the chance to be discovered through the internet and social media, like many of today’s stars such as Justin Bieber and Adele first found fame.

The talent show takes a twist on the tradition singing competition show, as contestants auditions will take place in the comfort of their own home — everyday people can upload their video to “The Stream” online platform where it will immediately become available to the public so that users can spread, share and stream all of their favorite acts and music. The 100 most-streamed musicians will then head to a showcase where they will perform in front of yet-to-be-announced industry titans who will then select 30 artists to work with for one week, and at the end of the week, each »

‘The Voice’ Premiere Recap: Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys Make Debut as Coaches

19 September 2016 7:43 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When one hears that Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys are joining “The Voice” as coaches in Season 11, it’s difficult to not have flashbacks to when “American Idol” welcomed Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey for its twelfth season — a chemistry experiment that, without getting into too many details, exploded.

Showdowns between Tyra Banks and Janice DickinsonBritney Spears and Demi Lovato; even “The Voice” has made headlines and become tabloid fodder for conflict between two female judges who haven’t even appeared on the same season.

But during the first night of the two-night premiere, Cyrus and Keys brought class, professionalism, insight and personality. The two women joined the show’s “winningest coaches” — which really means the only two judges who have stayed on the show since the first season »

ABC Daytime Head Lisa Hackner Out in Department Reorganization

1 September 2016 1:09 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Daytime head Lisa Hackner is out at ABC, Variety has learned. Hackner served as the network’s exec VP of daytime and syndicated programming, joining in October 2013.

The department is being reorganized affecting about 5 to 10 people on the West Coast, source tells Variety, as a result of “FabLife’s” cancellation. Some staffers were offered other opportunities within the company. Hackner has elected to leave the company and stay on during a transition period, the source said.

During her time of roughly three years at ABC, Hackner did not develop or bring about any successful new programs, which sources say led to her departure. She oversaw last season’s short-lived Tyra Banks panel show “FabLife,” which was cancelled after one season, following Banks preemptively quitting her own series. “The View” also shifted from the daytime purview to ABC’s news division in 2014.

Hackner had a close relationship with Banks, having developed her successful daytime talker “The Tyra Banks Show” at »
