News Outlets Prep for Surprises at This Year’s Unpredictable Political Conventions

13 July 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On the penultimate night of the Republican National Convention in 2012, TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” drew an audience greater than any individual network’s coverage of the Gop gathering.

This embarrassing testament to voter apathy was hardly a surprise: Political conventions have long been carefully stage-managed coronations — choreographed infomercials at which crowd reaction is about as spontaneous as a sitcom’s in-studio audience.

But this year’s gatherings promise a twist: There’s sure to be news, particularly at the Republican National Convention, July 18-21 in Cleveland, and likely at the Democratic gathering the following week, July 25-28 in Philadelphia.

As they always have, the cable news networks will air nonstop coverage of the proceedings, this year hoping to replicate the record interest drummed up by some of the current cycle’s debates and forums.

ABC, CBS and NBC each will spend an hour of primetime on each night of both parties’ conventions — an hour »

11 July 2016 6:55 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Conservative news aggregator Matt Drudge upset some prominent members of his fan base last week when his website featured a “Black Lives Kill” headline following the attack on police officers in Dallas. The attack left five police officers killed and Business Insider‘s Oliver Darcy called Drudge’s word a “race-baiting headline,” while calling Drudge a “once reliable ally who has become more and more divisive” to conservatives. “I just deleted my Drudge app,” National Review writer David French declared on Twitter after seeing the controversial headline.

Radio Host Joe Walsh Says He Got 17,000 Death Threats After ‘Cop Hater’ Obama Tweets

8 July 2016 1:35 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Former congressman Joe Walsh claims he has received 17,000 threats to his life since posting a now-deleted tweet that called President Obama a ‘cop hater’ who should ‘watch out’ because “this is now war” following Thursday’s deadly attack on police in Dallas. The conservative radio host announced that today’s show would be “very different” after the massacre and the resultant drama from his tweets cost him a night’s sleep. “I lay in bed wide awake with my gun by my side,” Walsh said to open Friday’s broadcast. “I lay in bed getting threat after threat after threat »

Former Congressman Joe Walsh Warns ‘Cop Hater’ Obama to ‘Watch Out': ‘This Is Now War’

7 July 2016 10:54 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Former Illinois Congressman turned conservative radio host Joe Walsh went on a twitter rant following the deadly sniper attack on Dallas police officers Thursday, including a now-deleted message that read: “This is now war. Watch out Obama.” Walsh, a Republican who represented Illinois’ 8th district from 2011 to 2013 before becoming a syndicated radio host, delivered a series of tweets that criticized President Barack Obama and suggested that the president was a “cop hater” no different from “the thugs on the street.” In another tweet, Walsh suggested that the president’s rhetoric about recent police shootings of unarmed African American men might. »

Joe Walsh's Best Serious Songs

19 June 2016 5:07 PM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

I recently posted a Joe Walsh song on my Facebook wall and the reaction was mixed. One commenter wrote, "Walsh always struck me as the real-life Spicoli, and that was about as seriously as I could take him." This is a common misconception about Walsh.

Walsh has had a music career of over five decades.  There are many, many people who know of him mostly as a member of the Eagles (since 1975) who had a hit in 1978 with a funny song, "Life's Been Good." Yet Walsh was a music biz veteran of eleven years’ standing when Hotel California was released in 1976; he would not have been recruited into the Eagles if he had not already established himself as such a distinctive guitarist that he could instantly give them the rock cred they so desired. Already on his resume were the killer riffs of "Rocky Mountain Way," "Turn to Stone," "Walk Away, »

Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “The Voice” Season 10 finale, which aired May 24 on NBC.

NBC’s “The Voice” unveiled its Season 10 winner on Tuesday night, crowning Alisan Porter the latest champion of the popular singing competition.

Blake Shelton has previously coached four winners, Adam Levine has won with three, and Pharrell Williams and Usher have both coached one winning contestant each. Coaches Shakira, Gwen Stefani and CeeLo Green have yet to win with any of their contestants. In Season 11, Levine and Shelton will be joined by two new coaches, Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys.

Country singer Adam Wakefield was runner up, with Hannah Huston coming in third and Laith Al-Saadi rounding out the final four.

New, Unimproved! Why Grammys Underwhelmed as Usual This Year

16 February 2016 10:45 AM, PST | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

With only a handful of actual awards handed out on television, The Grammys did their utmost best to convince us there’s nothing wrong with the music business. Again, it’s kind of like the orchestra on the Titanic–if the Titanic took 20 years to sink. As much as I loved The Eagles and the late Glenn Frey, they looked sorely out of place on last night’s telecast. Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, Timothy Schmit, Joe Walsh and Jackson Brown looked like your grandfather’s band jamming in the middle of your bar mitzvah. ...Read More »

Sundance Film Review: ’31’

25 January 2016 2:07 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rob Zombie truly loves horror movies. But he still hasn’t made a good one, and “31” is a perfect encapsulation of the reasons why: It’s a fanboy’s highlight reel of homages, without any of the credibility or context that made most of the films he’s inspired by so fine. Those who liked his first narrative features, “House of 1000 Corpses” and “The Devil’s Rejects,” will probably enjoy his latest, which feels like a mash-up of the two (as well as numerous older films). But for others, this energetic exercise in forced badassery will be too silly and self-conscious to feel genuinely edgy, despite all the blood spilt and familiar taboos violated. (You know something’s wrong when your reaction to one character’s entrance is “Oh. A Nazi killer dwarf. That figures.”) As with Zombie’s prior efforts outside the “Halloween” reboots, this looks destined for »

‘Compton,’ ‘Carol,’ ‘Furious 7’ Win at Music Supervisors Awards

21 January 2016 10:09 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Guild of Music Supervisors proved not too white with such fare as “Straight Outta Compton,” “Empire” and “Bessie” — all chronicling the African-American experience through music — claiming top honors Thursday night at the Theater at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

The sixth annual affair, each more widely attended than the last — the Ace’s reconstituted ’20s-era gothic movie palace being its most lavish venue yet — represented another display of camaraderie between this coterie of gatekeepers, curators and rights procurers, and the studio and network music heads, publishers, composers and lyricists and their handlers who court their favors.

As one presenter said, “a meaningful synch can break a band,” hinting at stakes involved for emerging artists.

A swinging jazz trio in the lobby prior to the ceremony gave an analog charm to the proceedings while performers during included Andra Day (song nominee for “Meru”).
