‘Drunk History’: Derek Waters Previews Season 5 and Acknowledges the Insanity of Getting Oscar-Winning Guest Stars

‘Drunk History’: Derek Waters Previews Season 5 and Acknowledges the Insanity of Getting Oscar-Winning Guest Stars
Ten years after the invention of the “Drunk History” format, comedian Derek Waters is reconsidering how to describe the performers who get wasted, then narrate their take on a pivotal moment in history. “I want to start calling them ‘storytellers,'” he said. “It sounds more important. I think ‘narrator’ sounds like a voiceover actor.”

Indeed, the term “narrator” doesn’t quite do justice to what intoxicated celebrities bring to the series, which returned to television Tuesday night after nearly 13 months off the air.

Tuesday’s “Drunk History Christmas Special” will be followed by the show’s full return on January 23. It’s been a long time since new “Drunk History” episodes premiered, something Waters (who co-created the show with Jeremy Konner) acknowledged. “If I was a fan, I’m thinking the show’s over,” he said. “‘I thought you were dead.’ But that’s better like that than people going,

TV Families To Be Thankful For This Holiday Season

TV Families To Be Thankful For This Holiday Season
In this digital age of infinite screens and streams is an opportunity for liberation: Specifically, liberation from the families that we did not have the luxury of choosing. In 2017, Netflix and other platforms have been kind when it comes to giving us a glimpse at perhaps preferable family lives. So this Thanksgiving, it’s time we give thanks to the TV families who’ve been there for us no matter what — because, you know, they’re fictional.

The Byers (“Stranger Things”)

Despite the bloodthirsty monsters and suffocating slime, “Stranger Things” is all about the power of family. The writers kept their focus on the relationships between friends and family, and the extent that people endure in order to protect the ones they love. The Byers may not have the best luck in the world, but through every strange twist and turn they never once turned their backs on each other.

Review: Let’s Sing 2018 vs. We Sing Pop (PS4)

Seemingly revitalised by the likes of Now That’s What I Call Sing and the current-gen debut(s) of Rockband and Guitar Hero, the karoke game genre has, sadly, not found the success it once had.

However things picked up at the beginning of this year when not one, but Three new karaoke games were available in UK stores. So what did we do? Reviewed the three in a head-to-head of course! Yes, back in January we reviewed Ravens Court’s Now… Sing sequel alongside Ubisoft’s Just Sing and Nordic Games’ (under their new Thq Nordic banner) We Sing, the franchise that was – in my opinion – the King of the karaoke games during the Nintendo Wii era.

I still maintain – all these years later – that Nordic Games’ We Sing Pop, released in 2012, was the epitomy of the genre, capturing the mix of songs, controls and gameplay perfectly… Well now We Sing Pop is back,

It’s Official: ‘The View’ Adds Meghan McCain as Conservative Co-Host (Exclusive)

It’s Official: ‘The View’ Adds Meghan McCain as Conservative Co-Host (Exclusive)
Meghan McCain has officially signed onto “The View” as a regular co-host, Variety has learned exclusively.

McCain’s hire comes just days after she left Fox News, and shortly after the ABC daytime show parted ways with Jedidiah Bila.

McCain is expected to start in early October, joining the panel of Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sara Haines, Paula Faris, and Sunny Hostin.

ABC declined to comment on McCain.

Insiders say “The View” nabbed McCain because the show needs a stronger conservative voice, which it has been lacking since Elisabeth Hasselbeck left in 2013 when the series was buzzier, frequently making headlines for in-show sparring between the co-hosts with different political views.

McCain — the daughter of U.S. Senator and 2008 presidential nominee John McCain — has described herself as a Republican with liberal views on several social issues.

Since creator Barbara Walters retired in May 2014, “The View” has been playing a game of musical chairs, enduring

Here’s Some of the Negative Feedback for Season One of “Raven’s Home”

Raven’s Home” is in its first season on the Disney Channel.

'Game of Thrones' Actor Calls Bran Stark, Night King Theory 'Far-Fetched'

'Game of Thrones' Actor Calls Bran Stark, Night King Theory 'Far-Fetched'
There have been many fan theories that have popped up over the course of Game of Thrones' seven seasons, from thoughts that either Cersei will become the Mad Queen or Daenerys will follow the path of her crazed father and earn that title to Tyrion being a Targaryen. One theory that has been making the rounds among fans in recent months is the belief that Brandon Stark is the Night King. Isaac Hempstead Wright, the actor who plays Bran on the show, was a bit ambiguous with his thoughts on that premise.

Game of Thrones Season 8: What’s In Store for House Stark?

Tony Black on what might be in store for the surviving members of House Stark in Game of Thrones season 8…

The cyclical nature of Game of Thrones is none more apparent than with the nature and fortunes of House Stark. At the beginning, they were amongst the most solid, respected and noble houses of all Westeros, led by Lord Eddard, Warden of the North, with a burgeoning dynasty of children who would carry one of the most ancient bloodlines through into the next generation.

Powers, thrones and dominions ended up challenging that long-held fortitude. Ned was executed once his old friend King Robert Baratheon died and his (secretly illegitimate) cruel son Joffrey became King. His wife Catelyn was betrayed in the same ambush where their son Robb lost his life, the ‘Red Wedding’ of the Twins courtesy of Walder Frey. Their other children we tracked; Bran followed a vision quest
