'Saturday Night Live' tackles Ebola with satirical cold open

26 October 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Live from New York, it's... Ebola? Saturday Night Live started off Saturday's show with a timely cold open about Ebola hitting New York. Some background: Around the same time a New York doctor tested positive for the disease this past Thursday, President Obama appointed Ron Klain as the country's Ebola czar, putting him in charge of the country's response to the disease. However, Klain doesn't have experience with disease control -- something the SNL sketch poked fun at. "I'm not a doctor," Klain (Taran Killam) says in the sketch. "But to be fair, I did serve as chief of staff to vice president Joe Biden, »

'Palin Family Brawl' Update: Police Audio Leaked, Bristol Palin Claims Media Is Biased Against Conservative Women

22 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin, describes the alleged assault that kick started the ‘Palin family brawl’ that made headlines in September, claiming that a man pushed her on the ground and stole some of her effects.

Bristol Palin Police Audio

“I have a five year old in the car!” Bristol is heard screaming in the audio recording from Sept. 6. Clearly upset, Bristol can be heard telling the police that she was pushed down on the grass by a man, who then dragged her across the lawn, perhaps stealing her $300 sunglasses and shoes in the process.

“They took my $300 sunglasses, they took my f—king shoes, and I’m just f—king left here?” Bristol said before calming down a bit and describing the assault in detail.

“I’m gonna defend my sister, she’s 20 years old. A guy comes out of nowhere, pushes me on the ground, takes me by my feet, »

Let's revisit Larry King's 2 a.m. Twitter rampage

20 October 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

We all have those moments late at night when the Netflix queue is just "meh," everything in the freezer has been microwaved and eaten, and all there's left to do in this world is to tweet. It seems that Larry King had that kind of night as he tweeted with the stamina of a thousand youths late last night (or more like early this morning). It all began with a critical appraisal of Dane Cook's Showtime special (as it usually does) and devolved into an appreciation of Derek Jeter, Oreo cookies with milk, and a hatred of people with perfect teeth. »

Final: ‘Fury’ Wins Box Office War With $23.7M; ‘Book Of Life’ At $17M; ‘Gone Girl’ $100M+; ‘Best Of Me’ $10M – B.O. Final

20 October 2014 1:32 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Final Update, 1:32 Pm: Fury ended the weekend at $23.7M for Sony and Qed, so it underperformed all the tracking (gee what a surprise), social media metrics, and expectations just a little. But it will likely still make money all in after its domestic, international and home entertainment run. I understand that there were significant profit participations on this one. Fox and Reel FX’s The Book Of Life closed the weekend on the high end of our estimate with $17M and will have some playtime again over the next two weekends as no new offerings are in the family zone until Big Hero 6 bows from Disney on November 7. The other newbie, Relativity’s The Best Of Me, was soft with $10M. Gone Girl is now sitting pretty at $106.7M after three weeks in release for Fox and New Regency.

Feminism Flashback: Remember When the World Freaked Out About Murphy Brown?

20 October 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

-Aly Semigran

November 14 will mark 26 years since the CBS sitcom Murphy Brown hit the airwaves. The series, which ran for 10 seasons and won 18 Emmy Awards (including a record-breaking five Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series wins for star Candice Bergen), also happened to be at the forefront of a political firestorm in its heyday. A show about a 40-something single mother and career woman (!) touched such a nerve that the Vice President of the United States singled out the show as an example of the decay of family values in America.

During a campaign speech on May 19, 1992, then-vp Dan Quayle stated, “Failing to support children one has fathered is wrong. We must be unequivocal about this. It doesn’t help matters when primetime TV has Murphy Brown, a character who supposedly epitomizes today’s intelligent, highly paid professional woman, mocking the importance of fathers by bearing a child alone »

‘Fury’ Box Office Opens To Strong $1.2M; ‘Book Of Life’ To $300K – Late Nights; Friday Matinees Tumble In

17 October 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update, Friday, 2:03 Pm: With matinee grosses tumbling in, it appears at the moment that The Book Of Life is headed to a $4M-$5.2M Friday night with most of its audiences sure to come in on family moviegoing Saturday and Sunday for Fox. Currently, that puts it in the $11.5M-$15M range for the three-day week. Likewise, the Brad Pitt war movie Fury — which is expected to win the weekend — will see its R-rated audience come in later this evening and tonight for Sony and Qed. Right now, it’ss tracking for a $8M-$9M+ Friday or a three-day debut in the $21M-$25M range. Word of mouth on this mostly positively-reviewed movie should help. The Best Of Me from Relativity, as previously noted below, is not expected to do much business and that is certainly the case in matinees. It may make around $3M-$4.5M today on track »

17 October 2014 6:23 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden has been kicked out of the navy after he reportedly tested positive for cocaine. Hunter, who is a former lobbyist and managing partner at investment firm Rosemont Seneca Partners, had applied for a part-time position as a public affairs officer in the Navy Reserve in 2012. The navy confirmed that Hunter had been discharged in February but declined to confirm why he had been fired. Hunter addressed the issue in a statement but failed to confirm why he was fired. He said, "It was the honor of my life to serve in the Us Navy. I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge." This isn't the first time that 42-year-old Hunter has caused controversy. Earlier this year, Hunter was criticized for joining the board of a private Ukrainian gas company just as the Obama administration was working »

17 October 2014 6:09 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden was kicked kicked out of the Navy in February, it was revealed Thursday. The reason? Per NBC News, the 44-year-old former public-affairs ensign tested positive for cocaine in a 2013 drug test. According to a U.S. official, Hunter's dismissal from the Naval Reserves wasn't made public "because he was treated like any other sailor who fails a drug test and is thrown out of the Navy." The official noted cases of this nature are not reported routinely due to the Privacy Act. Hunter, who joined the Navy Reserves back in 2012, issued a statement Thursday, saying, "It was the honor of my life to serve in the Us Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed »

Colin Powell on ‘Fury': ‘This is Really How It is’

16 October 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A gaggle of D.C. VIPs including Vice President Joe Biden turned out for the world preem of Sony’s “Fury” at Washington, D.C.’s Newseum Wednesday night (15).

Wisely avoiding the red carpet scrum outside, Biden and Second Lady Jill slipped quietly into the reception for pre-screening chats with other attendees including cast member Brad Pitt and Gen. Colin Powell. The affair drew an eclectic mix of Washington officialdom including Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, MPAA topper Chris Dodd, Gen. George Casey, White House Social Secretary Jeremy Bernard and hockey superstar Alex Ovechkin.

The pic’s director/writer David Ayer, a U.S. Navy veteran, was clearly savoring the experience. “This is a film that I wanted to get out of Los Angeles,” he explained. “I made it for the military, for the people who serve.” The fictional account of a beleaguered World War II tank crew, “Fury »
