Celebrity Big Brother Recap: Was That the 'Classiest' Eviction of the Season?
With Ross Mathews and Brandi Glanville sitting pretty on the chopping block, Monday’s Celebrity Big Brother found Omarosa proceeding to the second phase of her plan to De-stroy All Hu-mans.

For example, remember that not-so-subtle wink she shot at Marissa Jaret Winokur after nominating Ross and Brandi? It turns out its sole purpose was to plant seeds of doubt in Marissa’s teammates — which worked immediately. Heading into this week’s veto challenge, Marissa noted that it was basically every houseguest for themselves.

Will last year’s Best Picture snafu drive up viewership for 2018 Oscars?

Will last year’s Best Picture snafu drive up viewership for 2018 Oscars?
With all due respect to the winners and nominees, 2017’s Oscar telecast will be best remembered for the mind-boggling series of mistakes that led up to the wrong picture being announced as the winner. What made the moment even more shocking was that it followed closely after the 2015 “Miss Universe” contest where a wrong winner was also announced. These live telecasts had gone off pretty smoothly since their inception decades ago when they started airing on TV. That made it even more shocking to see two winners being announced, receiving their awards, basking in their moment of glory and then having them ripped from their hands seconds later all the more astonishing. It makes you wonder how many viewers will tune in to the telecast this year just to see if everything goes well. Don’t forget, last year’s telecast was the least-watched Oscars since 2008.

Expanding aggressively into content production and ownership has been a top priority of Endeavor, the holding company for Wme, Img, and Endeavor Content.
