Kate Gosselin 'Shocked' by Apprentice Firing: 'It Should Have Been Kenya'

3 minutes ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

For the record, Kate Gosselin was just as blindsided by the results of Monday’s Celebrity Apprentice as you were.

“I couldn’t believe it,” Gosselin tells TVLine of her firing. “I’m not a sore loser, so I had a great experience, but I was genuinely shocked. I did not see that coming.”

Read on for our full Q&A with Gosselin, including her “no regrets” attitude and her thoughts on the villainous Kenya Moore.

Grimm Casts 'Prince William' to Play (Wait For It) a Royal

3 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The man who was one half of Lifetime’s Wills and Kate will sit the throne once more, this time on NBC’s Grimm, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Nico Evers-Swindell, best known as Prince William in last year’s William & Kate TV movie, will play Prince Kenneth in at least two upcoming episodes.

Kenneth is described as handsome, ruthless and commanding. He’s sent to Portland by the King with the express intent of recovering Adalind’s daughter — which means that Viktor, who so far has fallen down on the job, should probably start making contingency plans, and quickly.

Best of Late Night TV: Louis Ck Defends Patriots Cheating, Channing Tatum Loves Daughter's 'Poop Face' (Video)

13 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

The Northeast was covered in snow Monday night, and Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers were on repeats (not because of the storm, but still). David Letterman pressed on, talking to Louis Ck about the Super Bowl. Louis is from Boston and he's a Patriots fan. He has no problem with the deflated footballs, or with bending the rules to win. He thinks the whole thing is hilarious. In the second video, he talks about how he disappoints his fans. At every live show, he can always spot the fans in the crowd who are disappointed. Channing Tatum was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," and he and Jimmy talked about their baby daughters. »

Celebrity Apprentice Recap: Sea Sick

18 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Monday’s Celebrity Apprentice offered up a new recipe for disaster: Take nine ferocious celebs (at various points in their careers) and just add water.

The first hour tasked Teams Infinity and Vortex with planning duel boat tours of New York City, and as even the most casual Apprentice viewers could have predicted, there was some serious drama on the high seas.

Despite Team Infinity’s initial setback — its original theme was Mardi Gras, an experience unique to New Orleans — a quick course correction by project manager Brandi Glanville saved the day. (No comment on Kenya Moore’s performance. It was a thing that happened, »

According to American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (Ascap) public records, both Petty and his writing partner Jeff Lynne are listed as writers, along with Smith and collaborators William Edward Phillips and James John Napier.

Writers Slam ITV Over Neil Patrick Harris Show

26 January 2015 8:29 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

More than 175 comedy/variety writers have signed a petition urging ITV to enter a collective bargaining agreement covering its nonfiction writer-producers — including its upcoming variety show hosted by Neil Patrick Harris.

The Writers Guild of America East, which has been in a protracted battle with ITV over unionizing the company, has warned that it will not allow its members to work on the show.

“We are one guild,” the petition states. “By refusing to agree to a guild contract protecting its nonfiction writers and producers, ITV is also showing the back of its hand to us, the men and women who would write comedy/variety shows for ITV — in particular, the men and women ITV apparently expects to write a major new series for NBC starring Neil Patrick Harris.”

In response, ITV disputed the guild’s claims.

“The ITV Studios America affiliate producing ‘Saturday Night Takeaway’ has a binding agreement »

Oscar-snubbed “Life Itself” and “The Lego Movie” win documentary and animation awards

Birdman” was named the best-produced feature of 2014 at the Producers Guild Awards on Saturday night, giving the daring Alejandro Iñárritu film new life in the Oscar race for Best Picture.

“Boyhood” was considered the most likely PGA winner and the Oscar leader, but the critical favorite now finds itself in the same spot “The Social Network” was in four years ago. That film swept the critics’ awards and the Golden Globes, but then lost the PGA to “The King’s Speech,” which rode a string of guild wins to victory at the Oscars. »

The Winners Of The 26th Annual Producers Guild Of America Awards

24 January 2015 5:49 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The 26th Annual Producers Guild of America Awards have just concluded, ending with a gigantic surprise. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s brilliant Birdman has taken down the juggernaut Boyhood to claim the PGA’s top award as Best Picture of the Year, meaning we now have a new leader for the Best Picture Oscar (I may have previously spoken too soon when I said that Birdman‘s lack of a Film Editing nomination would hold it back). As previously mentioned, the PGA and the Academy have agreed on Best Picture 18 out of 25 times, including the last seven years in a row.

It’s worth noting that we saw the exact same situation occur four years ago, when The King’s Speech managed to defeat the seemingly-unbeatable The Social Network (which dominated throughout the critics awards). Birdman already has a great chance of taking home Best Actor and Best Cast tomorrow night »
