Why You'll Love James Corden, From a British Person

7 August 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

James Corden may not be a familiar face in the Us yet, but over at Popsugar UK, we've been watching the guy for years. From TV dramas to self-penned comedies, stage appearances, and sci-fi cameos, not to mention hosting gigs and charity skits, you can't go far in the UK without stumbling across this man. The good news is that despite us reaching peak Corden capacity and deciding to send him over to the Us to be the (rumored) new host of The Late Late Show, he's a little more loved than other recent British exports (I'm so sorry about Piers Morgan, but please do feel free to keep him). From his memorable role as Smithy to his well-documented obsession with a particular British boy band (no, not that one), there's a lot to love about Corden. So sit back and allow me to introduce you to the English lad »

Four Years After ‘America’s Got Talent’ Exit, Lindsey Stirling Returns

6 August 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

In 2010, dubstep violinist Lindsey Stirling was a quarter-finalist on America's Got Talent, but was booted off the show after failing to impress its judges. Four years later, Stirling's YouTube channel has made her an international sensation, and her success has given her the chance to return to America's Got Talent, this time as a featured performer. When she appeared on America's Got Talent, Piers Morgan called her "not good enough." This defeat led Stirling to YouTube, where she has racked up millions of subscribers. Her popularity has led her to release two albums; her latest effort, Shatter Me, reached #2 on the Billboard album charts. Meanwhile, as her star has grown, a video of her America's Got Talent performance has gone viral, receiving more than four million views to date. Stirling's America's Got Talent failure has become an integral part of her personal story and has made her a poster child for the power of YouTube. »

What we learned about sex in the 1990s from Sliver

29 July 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Every generation thinks they invented sex, right? Well, whoever invented it in the 90s was doing it very strangely...

Off the back of the international success of Basic Instinct, Sharon Stone was catapulted to movie stardom. Writer Joe Ezterhas enjoyed the fruits of that too, and the pair decided to see if lightning could strike twice. Thus, Ezterhas, under the guidance of producer Robert Evans, put Sliver together, an adaptation of the novel by Ira Levin.

In truth, Sliver should have opened with the song from Muppets Most Wanted. "We're doing a sequel", they joyously sing. "It's more of the same!". And whilst Sliver wasn't Basic Instinct 2 - that cinematic joy would be over a decade away, and at that stage merely a glint in Stan Collymore's eye - there's little doubting that the plan was to recapture what had turned Basic Instinct into a huge hit several years before. »

The Weinstein Company To Release One Chance On Yahoo Screen Before It Hits Theaters

21 July 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

On the night of June 9th 2007, a new television reality show called ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ went on air in the UK. On its first ever broadcast, a shy, unassuming man opened his mouth to sing the famous operatic aria ‘Nessun Dorma’, delivering a beautiful, stirring rendition that would change his life from that moment forward.

Swept up in the contagious emotion of Giacomo Puccini’s stunning aria, and the unlikely figure with crooked teeth and diluted confidence who had crooned it for them, the show’s three judges – Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan – stared in awe at what they had just witnessed, while the audience of 2,000 at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff erupted in a standing ovation.

Britain was instantly won over by Paul Potts, who was then working as a manager at the Port Talbot branch of The Carphone Warehouse, and followed him on his »

BBC Newsnight is history, claims David Starkey | Media Monkey

10 July 2014 1:24 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Historian who sparked nearly 700 complaints to BBC about his comments on show says it is 'tired' and 'should be allowed to die'

David Starkey has said the BBC's Newsnight is "tired" and "should be allowed to die". The historian often described as "the rudest man in Britain" told the Telegraph that the show was at the end of its natural lifespan. The format of the show is tired and thats obviously why Paxman gave up, he said. "The BBC is in many ways wonderful, but it is not good at recognising when a programme has come to the end of its natural life. Programmes are like weeds they spring up, grow quickly, and then should be allowed to die quickly. I think the BBC needs to be much more adventurous. I am horrified by this appetite they have for relaunches and remakes. They should be thinking about doing something new. »

Andrew Strauss apologises for calling Kevin Pietersen a "c**t" on TV

5 July 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Ex-England cricket team captain Andrew Strauss has apologised after being overheard referring to former teammate Kevin Pietersen as being "an absolute c**t" during a televised cricket match on Saturday (July 5).

The offending remark was heard in Australia during a break in Sky Sports' coverage of McC's match against the Rest of the World at Lord's, but was not broadcast in the UK.

Strauss issued a prompt apology to viewers, saying: "I apologise unreservedly, particularly to Kevin Pietersen. I am mortified and profusely sorry."

Sky Sports Cricket also apologised on Twitter: "Earlier comments were made during a break of play which were heard overseas. We apologise for the language used."

The two famously had a falling out in 2012 after Pietersen was caught allegedly sending derogatory text messages about Strauss and other teammates to the South African team.

Piers Morgan also used social media to call for Strauss's firing from Sky Sports. »

Recap: 'True Blood' - 'I Found You'

29 June 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Despite all evidence to the contrary, “True Blood” would like to give you what you want from it. This is not a Brechtian experiment in raising awareness of the audience’s desire to have its feelings manipulated in the name of “entertainment” by frustrating and disappointing us at every turn; at its best, it’s a robust sexy horror comedy made by HBO pros. But it’s been having trouble being scary and funny—intentionally, anyway—because of creative exhaustion, or the contempt that’s bred by familiarity, or because Alan Ball has left the building. Or maybe its priorities are just screwed up. “I Found You” opens with a languorously paced scene in which Jason Stackhouse tracks down Eric, standing in front of a window with his shirt open, as if practicing his moodiness. “Why’d you come here, Jason?” asks Eric “I came because I knew you’d ask that f***ing question, »

Simon Cowell: 'I may shake up Britain's Got Talent judges'

7 June 2014 5:07 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Simon Cowell has suggested that he may shake-up the judging panel on Britain's Got Talent.

The panel has consisted of Cowell, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams since 2012. Previous judges include Michael McIntyre, David Hasselhoff and Piers Morgan.

Speaking to Bang Showbiz, the 54-year-old said: "I'm possibly looking at a shake-up for next year. It's about having a conversation to see how much they want to be on the show.

"Are they still into the idea of finding a star? I never want a judge for hire. I want someone committed."

Speaking about his relationship with David Walliams, Cowell said that the comedy actor had overstepped the mark on a few occasions with some of his comments.

"He gets really over-excited on the live shows and says and does things he wasn't planning, then sometimes regrets it," Cowell explained.

"But he kind of makes it interesting.I knew what »

Jeff Zucker Congratulates Staff on 'Evolving' CNN, 'Sixties' Ratings, V.A. Coverage

CNN's 9 p.m. hour, in a sort of limbo post-Piers Morgan, got a shot in the arm on Thursday night. The premiere episode of Playtone (Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman) and Mark Herzog's The Sixties won the news demo, besting Fox News Channel and MSNBC, nearly tripling its average showing in the time slot over the past month. A 10 p.m. encore lost little steam -- the two showings averaged a respective 284,000 and 243,000 viewers -- again topping its two most relevant rivals among adults 25-54.
