ITV and Studio Ramsay have teamed up to produce “Gordon on Cocaine,” a new two-part series from celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. Britain is Europe’s largest user of cocaine, which is rampant in the restaurant industry. The show will follow Ramsay as he travels the world to uncover the secrets of the drug and the damage it has done. Ramsay, who lost a friend to the drug in 2003, said, “I’ve wanted to understand the world of cocaine ever since I lost one of my chefs…and I wanted to learn why it’s becoming such an epidemic not just globally but specifically in the culinary world….The documentary is gritty and shocking, but importantly an eye opener and hopefully a real education to all those in our industry and beyond

E! Orders Two More Episodes of ‘Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry’
E! has ordered two additional episodes of “Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry,” bringing the first season to a total of 10 episodes, Variety has learned exclusively.

The extra order comes after ratings success for the reality series, which features Tyler Henry, the go-to medium to the stars, giving readings to celebrities. Snooki, Monica Potter and Tom Arnold have appeared on the show.

The second episode, which aired Jan. 31, brought in 1.8 million total viewers, delivering a 10% increase among viewers 18-49 from the Jan. 24 premiere, which marked E!’s largest non-spinoff unscripted launch in the past three years. Three airings of “Hollywood Medium” drew 3.2 million unique viewers on its Sunday night series debut.

Originally titled “Hollywood Teen Medium,” the show — which perhaps changed its title, now that Henry is 20 years old — was greenlit last July with an initial straight-to-series, eight-episode order. The series hails from 44 Blue Productions and Corbett-Stern Productions in association with Mortar Media.

PopPolitics: Aaron Sorkin on ‘The Newsroom,’ CNN and the Boston Bombings (Listen)
The Newsroom” returns to HBO for its third and final season on Sunday, and creator Aaron Sorkin is once again deploying plot twists using events of the recent past, this time the Boston Marathon bombings.

But in an interview with Variety’s “PopPolitics,” airing on SiriusXM’s Potus Channel, Sorkin says that he’s not trying to turn “hindsight into heroism” by blending fact with fiction as a way to say “here’s how you should have done it.” Rather, he draws on recent events “so I don’t have to make up fake news which would make the world seem fake.”

As Will McAvoy and the Acn news team scramble to cover the bombings with a degree of journalistic caution, they watch as CNN’s John King makes the real-life gaffe of reporting that Boston police had made an arrest. CNN was forced to retract the story.

Daytime Emmy Awards: ‘Young and the Restless,’ ‘Ellen DeGeneres,’ Steve Harvey Among Top Winners at Raucous Ceremony (Full List)

Daytime Emmy Awards: ‘Young and the Restless,’ ‘Ellen DeGeneres,’ Steve Harvey Among Top Winners at Raucous Ceremony (Full List)
“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “Steve Harvey” grabbed the top talkshow wins while “The Young and the Restless” was named best drama series Sunday at the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards, which proved to be a raucous affair as the kudocast grappled with the transition to a streaming-only format.

A high volume of no-shows among top winners and bumpy moments underscored the unusual nature of this year’s ceremony, which was unable to land a TV deal. At times, presenters struggled with their stage instructions and the camera work was jumpy. Without the timetable and content constraints of airing live on advertiser-supported TV, winners and presenters let the salty language fly, and some winners took their sweet time with acceptance remarks on the Beverly Hilton stage.

Host Kathy Griffin (pictured) and others made light of the situation. Griffin ended the nearly two-hour ceremony by walking on stage yelling “say goodnight!
