FX Pulling Out Of Late-Night For Now; John Landgraf On Strategy & Chelsea Handler

18 hours ago | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

At FX‘s upfront presentation last spring, Totally Biased With W. Kamau Bell was a central piece as the late-night show was envisioned as a potential cornerstone for the new comedy-centric network Fxx. But, facing stiff competition from broadcast and cable, the Chris Rock-produced show didn’t transition well to the new network after its solid original run on FX, leading to its cancellation. That followed the demise of FX’s other late-night effort, Brand X With Russell Brand. At FX’s upfront presentation last week, there was no mention of late-night. Instead, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf said announced that FX and Fxx will be doubling their primetime original output from 11 to 20 series during the next year. That involves the relocation of resources to primetime as the network is retreating from late-night, at least for the foreseeable future. “There is less interest in late-night, and that is in »

11 April 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Katy Perry debuted her slime green hair earlier this week, she was doing more than sporting a new look - she was displaying a new attitude. "She finally decided, 'f--- it.

10 Smart Decisions WWE Made At WrestleMania 30 & Raw

10 April 2014 1:16 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It’s fair to say that both WrestleMania 30 and the Raw that followed were excellent wrestling shows. While the tragedy of The Ultimate Warrior passing away is still fresh in our minds, it’s important to try to move on and look to the future. In WWE’s case, as they wipe their tears away, it’s about their bright future.

WrestleMania was a success largely because most of the younger talent went over the older talent.  With the exception of John Cena beating Bray Wyatt (a very questionable move in my opinion), a younger talent got the win. Since it’s WrestleMania, most of them are babyfaces like Daniel Bryan, Cesaro and The Shield. That bodes well for their future.

Raw was a very entertaining show even though they didn’t have a lot of in-ring action at all. It was a promo heavy broadcast in front of one »

It seems Russell Brand may be more than just the quintessential funny man. The actor and comedian, 38, has been involved with British socialite Jemima Khan, and she is apparently quite happy with other, um, areas of their relationship. With Brand, Khan is "having a sexual awakening," a source tells People of the 40-year-old mother of two, whose ex is cricket champ-turned-politician Imran Khan. "She's having a lot of fun and she's loving their relationship." Brand, whose divorce from pop star Katy Perry was settled in February 2012, also seems smitten with his new love. "They're really into each other," the source adds. »

Herzog fans, rejoice. Fandor has attained exclusive streaming rights for no less than 16 (!) of the German auteur's films. "Aguirre the Wrath of God" has its bow on April 10, with one new title launching each week through July 2014. Fandor's recent CEO and Toh! contributor Ted Hope helped to negotiate the deal for the site. So, which Herzog films are part of this new collection? The titles span three decades, incorporating both narrative and documentary, and include all the director's work with his stormy muse Klaus Kinski (as well as the documentary on their insanely tempestuous relationship, "My Best Fiend"). Meanwhile, the 71-year-old Herzog is still as active and marvelously unpredictable as ever: He's finishing up filming in Morocco on Gertrude Bell/T.E. Lawrence biopic "Queen of the Desert," starring Nicole Kidman and Robert Pattinson, and has school shooting dark comedy "Vernon God Little" up next, with the unlikely names of Pamela Anderson, »

Let's take a moment to appreciate the lawyers whose job it is to clear rights in films and TV shows. It's not as easy as one might assume. Case in point: here's a scene from the 2011 film, Hop, an Easter-themed movie directed by Tim Hill that blends animation and live action and stars James Marsden, Kaley Cuoco, Gary Cole and a rabbit character voiced by Russell Brand. Take a bit of an Easter egg hunt to look for the alleged copyright infringement. If you identified the small surfboards painting just behind the bunny's head, you got it. According to a
