How @midnight made America fall in love with the panel show

13 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Comedy Central show took a British-style format, added comedians telling topical jokes, applied it to social media – and ended up with a runaway hit

The New York Comedy Festival had plenty to talk about this year, from a controversial Bill Cosby show to a topless set by Tig Notaro. But its most prominent inclusion wasn’t a standup show at all. Its big coup was in drawing Comedy Central’s hit late night show @midnight away from its comfy Los Angeles confines for a week of shows in the Big Apple.

The road trip gave the show a chance to feature New York-based comics like Judah Friedlander and Jim Norton, and welcome a slew of celebrity guests – Jon Hamm, Ben Stiller, Gilbert Gottfried, Stephen Colbert, and Broad City’s Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson all appeared during the week. The show even included a few of the more aggressive »

Poster for Sylvester Stallone and Ian McKellen's Animated Film Animal Crackers

7 November 2014 11:53 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Yep, there's a CG animated movie coming out called Animal Crackers, which is based on the classic kids snack food. I think it hilarious that Hollywood is now moving in the direction of adapting food into movies. I think the Peeps feature was the last one to be announced.

Animal Crackers will feature the voices of Sylvester Stallone, Ian McKellenDanny DeVitoPatrick WarburtonGilbert Gottfried, Raven-Symoné, and Harvey Fierstein. This is the synopsis that was released:

Animal Crackers follows a family whose life is turned upside down when they inherit a rundown circus and a mysterious box of Animal Crackers, which magically change the person who eats them into the animal they have eaten — including monkeys, giraffes, lions, tigers and bears.

I guess that's the way to go for a movie like this. I guess there's a chance it could be a fun flick to watch. The project is »

Sylvester Stallone, Danny DeVito And Ian McKellen Join Cast Of Snack-To-Screen Adaptation Animal Crackers

6 November 2014 3:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you believe that snacks on the whole don’t encompass more of the creative human experience, then fear not, because Blue Dream Studios and Storyoscopic Films are producing an animated version of Animal Crackers! Directing the children’s flick are Scott Christian Sava and Tony Bancroft, based on a script co-written by Sava and Dean Lorey.

Deep in production, the film “follows a family whose life is turned upside down when they inherit a rundown circus and a mysterious box of Animal Crackers, which magically change the person who eats them into the animal they have eaten — including monkeys, giraffes, lions, tigers and bears.”

It’s a cute idea that’d be even cuter if it wasn’t such a blatant merchandising tie-in. However, cynicism aside, with a very impressive list of actors providing the vocal stylings for that array of beasties – it could be quite good fun. Already »

The Celebrity Apprentice Season 14 Contestants Revealed

6 November 2014 10:06 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Celebrity Apprentice is back on January 4th, and it looks like another unbelievable season pitting celebrities of varying (and questionable) “List” rankings against each other in a series of “events” that mean nothing beyond who can sucker in the most other celebrities to donate money.

That may sound negative, but overall the show is one of my favorites, and one that I can’t support enough. Now, it isn’t that I enjoy watching the bizarre clashes between people you forgot existed, people who have to be identified to justify their celebrity status, and people dumb enough to show up because they were only invited for their hate-watch draw. The show occasionally has something interesting going on in the weekly contest, but the general “celebrities are just as nuts as the regular people we con into signing up for this,” appeal doesn’t really work for me. No, it »

4 November 2014 7:08 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Get ready to return to the boardroom.  This morning on "Today," Donald Trump announced the premiere date for a new season of "The Celebrity Apprentice." This seventh celebrity edition, and 14th overall, is set to begin on Sunday January 4th with a two hour installment from 9 to 11.  It will then switch over to Monday nights where it will air from 8 to 10. The show features teams of celebrities doing different tasks in order to raise money for charities they have selected.  Over the course of the season, the celebs are whittled down until only one, the Celebrity Apprentice, remains.
