When was the last time you thought to yourself, “gee, I can’t wait for a Spike TV documentary?” It’s not that Spike isn’t good at… erm, what they do for their audience—cable channel programming for male adults—but let’s face it, their reality TV and sports programming (shows by Adam Carolla, Dave Navarro’s tattoo show and “Lip Sync Battle”), doesn’t actually scream captivating documentaries that make their debut at reasonably prestigious festivals like the Tribeca Film Festival.

For the first time since stepping out of the public eye in 2014, fitness guru Richard Simmons released a statement to his fans to reassure them that he is “not missing.” “Aren’t you sick of hearing and reading about me?!” Simmons quipped in a statement sent to People Magazine. “Well by now you know that I’m not ‘missing,’ just a little under the weather. I’m sure I will be feeling good and back home in a couple of days.” Also Read: 'Adam Carolla Show' Tribute Lifts Late Singer Lisa Donnelly's Spotify Streams by 8200 Percent (Exclusive) Simmons had checked himself into the. »

Singer-songwriter Lisa Donnelly died on April 7, 2017 in San Francisco, Calif. — a week later, her Spotify streams soared 8200 percent, per a Nielsen Artist Report received by TheWrap. Between those dates, the 37-year-old songwriter was remembered by friend and former roommate Gina Grad on “The Adam Carolla Show.” An emotional Grad — the podcast’s “News Girl” — gave a touching tribute and played a catchy Donnelly song, “Laugh,” for the audience. Appreciations for Grad’s sharing immediately poured in on Twitter. In the interest of transparency, the baseline for weekly Donnelly streams was pretty consistent but fairly immaterial, aiding in the »

We’ve known for a good while that Sylvester Stallone is set for a mystery role in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and now director James Gunn has revealed that Sly is playing a “very important” character from the Marvel universe, as is former Smallville star Michael Rosenbaum.
“We do have a couple of characters who are very important to the Marvel Universe who are going to make their debut in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which people don’t know about,” said Gunn on The Adam Carolla Show. “Sylvester Stallone plays one of these characters…my friend Michael Rosenbaum also has a pretty decent movie in the role as well and it sort of works in tandem with Sly’s character.”
Stallone has previously been rumoured as a member of the Ravagers (albeit by Heroic Hollywood, meaning it was likely pure speculation), although the footage »

With just a month and a half left until Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters, there are many mysteries about this superhero sequel that fans are still trying to solve. One of these mysteries revolves around Sylvester Stallone's character, who fans have been wondering about since he was first spotted leaving an Atlanta hotel while the movie was shooting in that city. While we'll likely have to wait until the movie opens on May 5 to find out exactly who he is, director James Gunn made it clear in a recent interview that Sylvester Stallone is in fact playing a major character, while also announcing the casting of Michael Rosenbaum.
James Gunn recently appeared on The Adam Carolla Show to promote his new thriller The Belko Experiment, which hit theaters today, where he dropped some interesting news about Guardians 2. While Sylvester Stallone's casting has long been confirmed, »
Throughout Marvel’s marketing campaign for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – which has been rather impressive so far, we must say – the spotlight has been placed mostly on Baby Groot, and it’s not hard to see why. The adorable little guy has worked his way into the hearts of fans around the world and is set to move boatloads of merchandise for the studio. He’s without a doubt going to be one of the biggest highlights of the upcoming sequel and as we inch closer and closer to its release, he continues to take center stage.
The latest piece of promotional material comes in the form of a new cover for Empire’s latest issue (seen below) which is sure to put a smile on your face, as it sees little Groot playing around with the Vol. 2 mixtape and seemingly enjoying himself while doing so. There isn »

Adam Carolla’s new live Spike TV show debuts Tuesday, so the podcasting king’s already busy days just became jam-packed with final rehearsals. But how does one even run through a live television episode anyway — especially the premiere? In the case of “Adam Carolla & Friends Build Stuff Live,” there’s at least one aspect the guys can nail down. (Yes, that pun was intended.) “We’re doing a build show, so we get to rehearse the build — a lot,” Carolla told TheWrap. “You can’t really rehearse that much else in the show.” Also Read: Adam Carolla Lauds 'News Girl' Gina Grad, »

Sylvester Stallone has an extraordinary body of film work that has to be respected. His Rocky and Rambo franchises alone make him a legend in the film industry. However, Stallone did so much more than that. From serious roles like Copland to his amazing 90s run of action films like Demolition Man, The Specialist, Cliffhanger, The Assassins (need I go on?), the man just kept working and kept pumping out solid films. Even today movies like The Expendables are box office hits. But to know Sylvester Stallone is to marvel at all he did in the 80s. That was his

Adam Carolla is one of the busiest men in Hollywood, though he’d probably hate the mere suggestion that he co-exists with the town. The host of six — yes, six — regular podcasts has also recently penned a number of best-selling books; written, produced and starred in some independent films, and is currently all-in on the documentary genre. He’s also a father of twins, a race car driver, and just helped Jimmy Kimmel write one of the best Academy Awards shows in history. Oh, one other thing: “The Man Show” alum has a new Spike TV show starting next week, »

Bill Paxton died Saturday at age 61. A day later, he was briefly memorialized by Jennifer Aniston when she introduced the 89th Academy Awards’ In Memoriam segment — but the late star didn’t make the actual montage. While Paxton was not included in the show’s footage, which was accompanied by a live rendition of “Both Sides Now” by Sara Bareilles, Oscars writer Adam Carolla said the “Titanic” star was supposed to have been added. Or at least, the podcasting king was told by a fellow show scribe that producers tried to add the prolific actor, but ultimately scrapped the last-minute inclusion for timing reasons. »

Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel got by with a little help from his friends last night. One of them, former “Man Show” partner Adam Carolla, has now shared some of the jokes he personally wrote for Sunday’s ceremony that didn’t make it to air. On Monday’s “Adam Carolla Show” podcast, the so-called “Podfather” read aloud a few options he scribed for the ABC awards show and Kimmel. Like all joke-writing ventures, the vast majority of his quips didn’t last the final cut. Also Read: Oscars: Stars' Reactions to 'Moonlight' Best Picture Win Are The Best (Photos) Below »

Breitbart editor and alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has been officially announced as the top-of-show interview guest on this week’s episode of HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher.” The appearance comes just two weeks after his speaking appearance at Uc Berkeley was shut down by riots triggered by anti-fascist groups. Maher has been reportedly trying to book Yiannopoulos for “Real Time” for weeks, and last week, Yiannopoulos said during an interview on Adam Carolla’s podcast that he was hoping to appear on the show by the end of the month. It should come as no surprise to those familiar with Maher that. »
