Tom Green, Criss Angel and Norm MacDonald talked about the importance of monetizing their web exploits at the “Broadcasts Minds” panel at the Nab Show in Las Vegas on Wednesday morning. The panelists also plugged the NewTek's TriCaster product during the session, which happened to be presented by NewTek. Each panelist has built their own TV studios around different versions of the NewTek product.

The world of New York City ballet may have be completely lost on those who live outside the community, but director Jody Lipes feels he's figured out the perfect way to communicate the trials and tribulations of an exclusive ballet company to a wider audience than it has gotten before in his documentary "Ballet 422." Tell us about yourself. I live on the Upper West Side of New York City with my wife Ellen Bar, but I grew up in rural Pennsylvania. I really love movies, filmmaking, Charlie Rose, Norm MacDonald, clothes, and food. What was the biggest challenge in completing this project? Figuring out how to communicate the rules and language of a ballet company to an audience who has little or no knowledge of that world. What do you have in the works? Putting together my first scripted feature as a director, and gearing up to Dp a romantic comedy scheduled for a 2015 release. »

It’s amazing how money changes things. Norm McDonald once did a bit about buying a friend a lottery ticket for a Christmas gift – “You don’t actually want it to win…”
Oculus Rift, the latest uber-cool project amongst video game mavens, just hit the jackpot, and a lot of people are annoyed about it. The Vr-goggle system, designed primarily for videogame use, but bursting with potential other uses, got its initial funding via crowdfunding site Kickstarter, much to everyone’s joy. But this week, the company made news when it was sold for a staggering two billion dollars.
Sounds like good news, right? A rags to riches, Local Boy Makes Good story, yeah?
It was bought by Facebook.
You can actually hear the Internet’s face fall.
Kickstarter backers are positively livid. There are demands for refunds, great cries of foul, and a general sense that George Bailey sold »

This weekend's "Saturday Night Live" wasn't special just because it was the third time Melissa McCarthy hosted, it was also the last time Seth Meyers will ever "officially" anchor the Weekend Update desk. Meyers had an impressive eight-year run that stands alongside the classic runs of Chevy Chase and Jane Curtin, Dennis Miller, Norm Macdonald, Jimmy Fallon and Tina Fey and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Meyers will be taking over "Late Night" from Jimmy Fallon (who moves on to host "The Tonight Show") and on his final show some of the more memorable characters during Meyers run stopped by.

The timing was coincidental, but it made a lot of sense for Howard Stern to throw his massive 60th birthday concert at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom right around the same time as the Golden Globes, the State of the Union, the Super Bowl and the Grammys. In many ways, the evening felt like a combination of all those events: It had the all-star musical collaborations of the Grammys, the random grouping of A-list celebrities eating and drinking together that you usually only see at the Golden Globes, the chants, crazily-coveted »
"It's hard to believe I would have a better send-off than Stefon's wedding last year," he says of Hader's "city correspondent" character running off to marry Anderson Cooper.
As Meyers switches gears from being a head writer and the longest tenured "Weekly Update" anchor to hosting his own show, "Late Night with Seth Meyers," he reflects on the only job he had on TV -- except for appearing once on "Spin City."
"There's no white whale sketch I never got to," he says. "I have no regrets."
It was the quiet before the final crush when Meyers »
