It's really happening: Colbert will take over as host of The Late Show when David Lettterman retires next year. While this means he'll be abandoning his role as the ultraconservative "Stephen Colbert" in favor of his true self (also conveniently named Stephen Colbert), will he also ditch all the singing? Likely not, as Colbert is known for being a triple threat (not to mention his soon-to-be-competitor Jimmy Fallon's penchant for a musical numbers). Just so we know what's in store for Late Show, let's take a look back at Colbert's best musical moments.Colbert joins his Steve counterpart, Carrell, in a tribute ... to Carrell. And during Comedy Central's Night of Too Many Stars, they come together again to sing a song about Captain Sully. He's also really good at subbing in for people on duets. Here, he takes over for Dolly Parton alongside Kenny Rogers on "Islands in the Stream. »

American Idol’s top eight returned again this week after judges Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban used the season’s one and only save on Sam Woolf. This week, the finalists were required to pick a song from the 80s.
Jena Irene made a bold choice in reimagining Joan Jett’s “I Love Rock N Roll.” Irene started off the classic song sitting down at the piano, allowing the song to build up as she belted out the second half. The judges reactions were mixed, with Connick critiquing the arrangement and Lopez praising the young singer for another original performance.
Country boy Dexter Roberts chose to sing Georgia Satellites’ “Keep Your Hands to Yourself.” Mentor David Cook was on Roberts to enunciate better – and not to let the other guitarist on the stage steal the spotlight from him. Overall, the judges felt like Roberts' performance was passable, »
[This is a review of The Americans season 2, episode 5. There will be Spoilers.]
Once all the various spy-related activities of Philip and Elizabeth Jennings are taken into consideration, when the duties they have performed in the name of the Soviet Union are successfully tallied up, it will be no surprise that, on the surface at least, the protagonists of The Americans will come away looking like monsters. And that’s not simply due to the innocent people they’ve killed – like the security guard from season 1, or the young restaurant worker in the season 2 premiere – it also has to do with those ...

A review of tonight's "The Americans" coming up just as soon as I'm the Kenny Rogers of Haifa... "You're a monster! You're not a man! Whatever you once were, whoever you were, they trained it out of you! No feeling, no humanity, you may as well be dead!" -Anton "The Deal" is an installment of "The Americans" where the whole isn't as strong as the sum of the individual parts, because even though the parts are mostly terrific, there are too many of them. FX has given this show, like many of its dramas, the freedom to come in long when the creative team needs the extra time, but in this case I would say being forced to hit a rigid time would have been useful. So much of what's strong about the episode comes from the tension of the ticking clock on Philip's situation, where there's only so long »

Don.t share your copyright with development partners. Consult a lawyer early in any negotiation. Be brutally honest with him/her. And don.t be cheap.
That.s among the advice to producers and other content creators from veteran media and entertainment lawyer Lyndon Sayer-Jones.
The attorney has just published a tome entitled Media Law for Non-Lawyers, updating a book which first came out more than 20 years ago.
.My motivation to release this 2014 edition was the realisation that since my first edition in 1992, no other such publications have come forward . not one,. he tells If.
.This is despite major changes made since my first edition such as the merger of Afc and Ffc into Screen Australia, the introduction of the producer offset tax scheme and, most important of all, the emergence of the Internet and social media.
.I don.t know why, I honestly don.t, but there are no »

Over 90 exhibitors and between 1,500 and 2,500 participants – including producers, directors, line producers, and DPs – are expected to attend the 4th Ile de France Location Expo.
This year, the location show is incorporated within the 1st edition of the three-week umbrella event, Paris Images Trade Show.
Location Expo began as a showcase exclusively for the Ile de France region but has progressively expanded over the last four years to include locations from throughout France.
“The first edition of Location Expo focused on the prime locations in the region, such as Versailles, the Louvre, the Musee d’Orsay – the jewels of the crown,” explains Olivier-Rene Veillon, exec director of the Ile de France Film Commission.
“After the first edition, we were contacted by other film commissions who said it would be very useful to show their locations, and it’s progressively expanded from there.”
The event now constitutes one of Europe’s premier location shows. »

'The Big Lipinski'
Filmed in New York City’s Rockefeller Center, Lipinski’s version of the video to Kenny Rogers’ “I Just Dropped In (to See What Condition My Condition Was In)” dazzled host Jimmy Fallon. Clad in a bathrobe, white v-neck shirt and sunglasses, Lipinski twirled around the ice while holding onto a White Russian cocktail.
In the music video for the 1998 movie, Bridges as “The Dude” dances about a psychedelic bowling alley, which features long-legged women in bowling pin headdresses. For his final act, he floats between their legs down a bowling lane and earns a strike with his curly-haired head.
Lipinski, who remains the youngest individual medalist to take home the gold at the Winter Games, filmed the performance as part »
Tara Lipinski—who remains the youngest individual gold medalist in the history of the Olympic Winter Games, winning at just 15 years old—just proved she can still work the ice. This time in a bathrobe with a White Russian cocktail in her hand! Doing an impression of the "The Dude" like only she can, the retired figure skater rocked and literally rolled in a solo performance at the Rockefeller Center rink celebrating Jimmy Fallon's last week on Late Night, as he moves up a slot to The Tonight Show. The entertaining skit, titled The Big Lipinski, is a play on the cult-film classic The Big Lebowski, complete with music from the flick, Kenny Rogers' "Just Dropped In (to See What »
To simultaneously mark NBC’s coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi beginning this weekend as well as Jimmy Fallon’s upcoming transition to The Tonight Show, Olympic gold medalist Tara Lipinski took to the ice once again on Late Night for a glorious routine inspired by The Big Lebowski. Appropriately titled “The Big Lipinski,” the skit sees the figure skater execute more than a few impressive moves while donning The Dude’s iconic robe and raising a White Russian (get it?) like the Holy Grail itself, backed by the Kenny Rogers & The First Edition song “Just Dropped In (To See »
