Inside Sinclair: CEO Nixes Fox News Rival Rumors, Talks Tribune & Big Ambition for Broadcast Biz

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Of the many challenges Fox News Channel is facing amid a turbulent year, there’s one threat Rupert Murdoch can cross off the list: Sinclair Broadcast Group has no plans to launch a rival conservative-friendly TV network. Chris Ripley, CEO of the Hunt Valley, Md.-based TV-station giant, is ready to end months of speculation that his company was preparing to mount a competitive threat in the wake of its $3.9 billion deal to acquire Tribune Media in May.

“After we acquired Allbritton [Communications] in 2014, we looked hard at launching a national cable news channel, but we decided the world didn’t need another cable news platform,” says Ripley, who makes clear that the rise of Donald Trump and the upheaval at Fox News haven’t changed his calculus. “Our strength is local news,” he maintains. “The market for national cable news is very well served.”

It’s hardly surprising that Sinclair would face speculation over its plans for »

14 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Saturday Night Live” has some big shoes to fill now that Melissa McCarthy won’t be needed to play Sean Spicer, who resigned last week as White House press secretary.

Over the weekend, after Donald Trump’s new communications director Anthony Scaramucci made the rounds on the Sunday talk shows, Twitter users speculated about what actor could parody him on the long-running NBC sketch show.

When reached by Variety, Cantone said that he’d seen the online chatter about him taking on the role. “Of course I’d do it,” Cantone said. “It would be a very big deal for me and a lot of fun. I know this guy. I have cousins.”

It will be up to “SNL” creator and executive Lorne Michaels to make the decision when the show comes back »

Fox News, New York Times Tussle Over Isis Raid Report

16 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox News and the New York Times are in a war of words over Fox News reports that a Times story from 2015 compromised U.S. military efforts to capture a key Isis leader.

The New York Times asked Fox News for an apology and correction for a July 22 report on “Fox & Friends” that cited recent comments from U.S. Gen. Tony Thomas asserting that a June 8, 2015, report in the Times about a raid in Syria  cost military intelligence a lead that could have led to the capture of the Isis leader known as Abu Sayyaf.

The Times in a letter to the executive producer of “Fox & Friends” protested the lack of opportunity to respond to Thomas’ claims, and it noted that Fox News reported on the same raid three weeks before the Times report was published. President Donald Trump comments on the “Fox & Friends” segment in a tweet on Saturday.

After President Trump’s latest Twitter missive on Monday, “Real Housewives” executive producer Andy Cohen weighed in to opine that the chief executive and former “Apprentice” host was taking his cue from the Bravo franchise. “Housewives Playbook: keep repeating the same lines over and over and over til someone listens (See: Aviva, bookgate; Kim D, strippergate),” Cohen wrote.

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” namesake Joe Scarborough may run for U.S. president in the future, as he hasn’t ruled it out.

The Comic-Con panel for “Doctor Who” was always going to be a bit bittersweet since this was the last one for Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. Sadly, Pearl Mackie, who plays new companion Bill Potts, also confirmed that she will be leaving the series after the Christmas special.

Mackie has become an instant fan-favorite from her very first episode. Bill Potts had the honor of being the first openly gay companion in the series. While her sexuality wasn’t the main focus for her character, it wasn’t ignored either. In scenes throughout the season, various characters were seen accepting the fact that she is gay with no real issues. In the season finale, she was seen joining her love interest from the first episode to explore space aboard an alien ship.

The stars of Comedy Central’s cult comedy dropped by TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite over the weekend and were positively euphoric when discussing the series’ Aug. 23 premiere, a long-delayed, Sliding Doors-esque half-hour that turns back the clock six years to reveal how their fictional character’s met. “We wrote it as the finale of the first season, but [exec producer] Amy Poehler said, ‘Don’t do it. It’s too early,'” Glazer revealed to me. »
