Rachel Maddow: Gop ‘on trial’ as health care threat looms

16 hours ago | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Republican Senators and Representatives are back in their home districts while Congress is in recess. But it’s hardly a time for them to hit the links or kiss babies — instead, they’re facing the wrath of constituents who are furious over potential cuts to health care. During Wednesday night’s Trump: The First Month special on MSNBC, hosted by Rachel Maddow and Brian Williams, the TV hosts marveled over packed town halls in so-called red states where Republican incumbents are, in Maddow’s words, “on trial”. “There is no clear leadership in the Democratic party, but that doesn’t mean there’s no leadership,” more »

‘Today’ Chief Noah Oppenheim Named NBC News President

14 February 2017 10:48 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Noah Oppenheim is moving from overseeing the biggest program at NBC News to running much of the overall franchise.

NBC News Group chairman Andrew Lack has named Oppenheim the new president of NBC News. Deborah Turness, who has run NBC News since mid 2013, will become president of NBC News International, a new European-focused operation created as the result of an NBC News investment in Euronews, a European news service headquartered in France. NBC News will take a 25 percent ownership stake in the company.

“We plan to marry the power of the NBC News brand and the talent of our people with a formidable news asset in Europe in order to create an international offering that will strengthen our news organization and change the landscape of international news,” Lack said in a memo to staffers issued Tuesday. “By joining forces with Euronews and their nearly 500 journalists, our audience on the broadcast network, on »

‘Girls’ Cast Celebrates Final Season and Legacy of Empowering Women

3 February 2017 8:18 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The cast and producers of “Girls” celebrated the legacy of the HBO series Thursday night at the New York premiere of the sixth and final season.

Not surprisingly, the party at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall also turned into a conversation of the impact “Girls” has had on women.

“I think this show introduced the television audience to a new kind of heroine who doesn’t look like the way that people aspired to look,” said Allison Williams, who stars as Marnie Michaels. “It’s been such a privilege to be a part of something that people had opinions about. Even if they were bad, they were from people consuming media that was made by women. This is such a girl party tonight.”

Girls” garnered attention from the start thanks to auteur Lena Dunham’s feminist, outspoken and unapologetic approach to showing the good, the bad and the ugly of being a modern twenty-something woman. It »

Trump Inauguration: TV Readies Hours of Coverage From ‘New Day’ to ‘Nightline’

17 January 2017 1:36 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

How newsworthy is Donald Trump’s inauguration? The nation’s TV-news outlets are throwing two episodes of “20/20,” a CBS primetime special, two live episodes of “Hannity,” a four-hour broadcast of “Morning Joe” and an early start to “New Day” at 5 a.m. CNN at it. And these efforts still won’t be enough.

TV news will go wall to wall to cover Trump’s ascension to the presidency, a feat that many pundits and prognosticators believed was nearly impossible a year ago at this time. Now, news outlets ranging from ABC to MSNBC will devote hours and hours to the start of his term in office.

Most of the activity will center around inauguration proceedings around the nation’s capital. On ABC, George Stephanopoulos will co-anchor “Good Morning American, and then lead overall coverage, joined by David MuirRobin Roberts, Martha Raddatz,  Byron Pitts, Jonathan Karl,  Matthew Dowd,  Cecilia Vega, and »

NBC’s Big Bet on Megyn Kelly Comes With Big Risks

3 January 2017 12:34 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBCUniversal will spend millions of dollars each year for the next few in the hopes that Megyn Kelly can succeed in areas in which she’s never been tested: daytime talk and Sunday newsmagazines.

The Comcast-owned company said Tuesday it intended to launch a new daytime program as well as a Sunday newsmagazine to showcase the famous Fox News anchor, whose profile has risen steadily since she launched a primetime program after Bill O’Reilly’s on the well-watched 21st Century Fox cable-news outlet. There’s no question that Kelly’s presence is now outsize, thanks to powerful on-air performances on Fox News’ “Kelly File”; the release of a best-selling memoir, “Settle for More,” in 2016; clashing famously last year with now-President Elect Donald Trump; and also playing a role in the ouster of Fox News chief Roger Ailes. Kelly is expected to join NBC News later this year, after finishing her tenure at Fox News, where »
