Mitt Romney Helped ‘Veep’ Showrunner Convey Selina Meyer’s Presidential Loss

26 May 2017 11:33 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The band may have been broken up in Season 6 of HBO’s “Veep,” but the actors chatted and laughed as though nothing was different at the Saban Media Center in North Hollywood Thursday evening.

The Fyc event took place on the heels of the news that the political satire had been renewed for a Season 7, and featured a screening of the seventh episode of the current season. Afterwards, People magazine editor-in-chief Jess Cagle hosted a panel of the ensemble cast, including Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky, Reid Scott, Matt Walsh, Kevin Dunn, Gary Cole, and Sam Richardson, and showrunner Dave Mandel.

Mandel took over writing for “Veep” after the end of Season 4, and is responsible for both the storyline of Season 5, which saw President Selina Meyer lose her presidency and the Season 6 plotline in which many of the main cast — no longer employed by Selina — have gone their separate ways.

Jerry Perenchio, Billionaire Media Mogul Behind Univision, Dies at 86

24 May 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Media mogul A. Jerrold “Jerry” Perenchio, who amassed a fortune by building a powerhouse TV production company and later the Spanish-language network Univision, and was among California’s most prolific philanthropists and political donors, has died. He was 86.

Perenchio died of lung cancer at his Bel Air home on Monday, a family spokesperson told the Los Angeles Times.

His personal wealth, along with an early career managing high-profile stars and promoting major sporting events, belied a fierce determination to stay out of the limelight, in which he granted few interviews and rarely allowed his associates to do the same.

A partner with Norman Lear in the production of such shows as “The Jeffersons” and “One Day at a Time,” Perenchio made a fortune on megahits of the 1970s, particularly from the sale of the shows into syndication.

No media investment, however, was as lucrative for Perenchio as the one in Univision, which »

Clint Eastwood Says He Wants To Return To Acting

22 May 2017 5:56 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Eastwood may give acting another shot.

 

By Lee Pfeiffer

At a packed symposium in Cannes where he received a three-minute standing ovation, Clint Eastwood discussed his philosophies of filmmaking along with the personal experience of growing up in the Depression. Eastwood said that he views movie-making as an emotional experience not an intellectual one and warns that when an emphasis on intellectual aspects of a film overrides trying to move the audience emotionally directors can find themselves in trouble. Eastwood addressed his long-standing complaints about what he perceives as political correctness in the film industry and warns that "We've lost our sense of humor."  Ironically it was Eastwood's sense of humor that earned him rare bad press concerning his personal life.  Traditionally Eastwood stayed out of commenting on national politics but in 2012 he appeared at the Republican convention to endorse Mitt Romney with a bit of improvised comedy that earned »

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Reveals the Line 'Veep' Took From Mitt Romney

20 April 2017 9:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Mitt Romney knows a thing or two about losing a presidential election, which is why the minds behind Veep approached him ahead of their new season.

The sixth cycle of the HBO political satire, which premiered Sunday, heads into uncharted territory as it follows former President Selina Meyer's (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) life after the White House. After losing the presidency on last season's finale, Selina and her staff were scattered beyond the confines of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. for the first time on the series.

"We've talked to people on both sides of the aisle," Louis-Dreyfus told Jimmy »

Bill O’Reilly’s Worst Quotes: The Hoodie, Aclu Terrorists and Victim-Blaming

19 April 2017 3:23 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bill O’Reilly was ousted from Fox News Wednesday after increased attention on sexual harassment allegations leveled at the television show host caused a nationwide outcry and resulted in dozens of advertisers pulling their ads from O’Reilly’s primetime slot.

The longtime host was known for his outspoken and incendiary comments. Here are some of his statements that came under fire for being in insensitive, racist, sexist, homophobic, or disrespectful.

Aclu Terrorists: In 2005, O’Reilly stated on an edition of his talk show “The Radio Factor,” that the Aclu was “the most dangerous organization in the United States of America right now,” second only to Al Qaeda.  O’Reilly had also referred to the Aclu as a “terrorist group” and “fascist organization” in the past and on a separate occasion said that Hitler, Stalin, Fidel Castro, and Mao Zedong would likely be members of the Aclu.

Stephen Curry and His Shoe Designs Get Roasted on Twitter…Again

10 April 2017 7:36 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Steph Curry and the shoes he designs for Under Armour cannot catch a break. The NBA star is probably experiencing some serious déja vu today as his sneakers are once again getting ruthlessly mocked on social media. Last summer, the basketball player received an equally frosty reception from the internet after he debuted his Curry 2 Low “Chef” sneakers, which were quickly hailed as the Kirkland Signatures, Mitt Romney Lows, and the Early Bird Discount Buffet 9s. And now, the hazing is happening all over again with the launch of his new Curry 3 Lux sneaker in ‘Oxblood Leather.’

John Oliver Slams Trump’s Budget Proposal Which Eliminates Public Broadcasting and Nea Funding — Watch

20 March 2017 7:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

On Sunday nigh’s episode of “Last Week Tonight,” hot John Oliver slammed Donald Trump’s proposed budget cuts, which, among other programs, would eliminate funding for the Corporation of Public Broadcasting — which provides funding to NPR and PBS — and the National Endowments for the Arts.

“Look, there is nothing wrong with cuts in principle, but with budgets, as with haircuts, it’s where and how you cut that matters,” Oliver said. “It is important to note, non-defense discretionary spending is already at its lowest level relative to Gdp [gross domestic product] in over 50 years, lower than any year in [Ronald] Reagan’s presidency.”

Public TV Advocates Prepare for Funding Battle Ahead

16 March 2017 4:40 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

President Donald Trump is not the first occupant of the White House to propose the elimination of funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting — and yet it still survives. That fact is what is giving advocates some confidence that they will win the new battle over federal support.

Patrick Butler, the president of America’s Public Television Stations, was on Capitol Hill on Thursday and said that lawmakers think that Trump’s budget outline is merely the first step in a long process, and that “now we have to do our job.”

In recent weeks, Butler has been lobbying in anticipation that Trump’s budget would call for eliminating funding for the Cpb, which has in recent years received an appropriation of about $445 million, 2/3 of which goes to local TV and radio stations.

Many of the stations, he said, “are battle hardened, and they believe in this cause and are prepared to do whatever they need to »

PBS Will Likely Survive, But Trump’s Proposal Hits Stations Servicing His Own Rural Supporters the Hardest

16 March 2017 10:34 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Back when Vice President Mike Pence was the governor of Indiana, the D.C.-based lobbying group America’s Public Television Stations named him a “Champion of Public Broadcasting.”

Now they’d probably like their trophy back.

Public broadcasters are preparing for the fight of their lives. Donald Trump’s proposed budget, as feared, completely eliminates funding for public broadcasting, the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for Humanities. It’s a part of an unusually cruel proposal that, beyond the arts, also cuts social services like Meals on Wheels.

It’s no surprise that Trump and Republicans are gunning for public broadcasting. Conservatives have targeted the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for decades, even though its annual appropriation is around just $445 million. Its elimination would have virtually no impact on the nation’s deficit, particularly if Donald Trump succeeds in his proposal to increase military spending by $54 billion. »

NCIS: Los Angeles Season 8 Episode 17 Review: Queen Pin

12 March 2017 8:27 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

One question got answered this episode.

The next extended storyline was unveiled on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 8 Episode 17, and it springs from earlier this season.

At the center of it is Asakeem, who the team snatched out of Syria on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 8 Episode 2. It was on that mission that Kensi got seriously injured and started her long road to recovery. 

Everyone seemed concerned about Kensi's state of mind, confronting the man who caused her injuries. But she was fortunately very Zen about it.

Deeks: I'm thinking about Asakeem and the thousand ways I would crush him for what he did to you. Honestly, I can't even imagine how you feel.

Kensi: To be honest with you, I don't feel anything. It's not Asakeem, It's not Sullivan, it's not hundreds of others. I trust this job, and I've got to be Ok with it.

Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, May Run for President in 2020

1 March 2017 1:32 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

According to the Hollywood Reporter, at least one potential presidential candidate isn’t actually a politician yet: Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, is considering a run for office in 2020. Iger told THR last summer that “a lot of people — a lot — have urged me to seek political office” but wouldn’t confirm whether he was would throw his hat in the ring for either the California governor’s mansion or the senate. Now, it appears he’s turning his attention to the White House.

Bill Maher praised the media for getting tougher with Donald Trump but called on them to work toward reclaiming the public's trust on Real Time.

During the segment, Maher pointed out a Fox News poll where the majority of people believed that media was "less trustworthy than Donald Trump."

"Can you imagine how this must make a reporter feel, to be losing a truthfulness contest to Donald Trump? It's like losing a rap battle to Mitt Romney," Maher said. "For the press to be effective, these numbers have to change. »

15 February 2017 9:40 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

For the first time in 15 years and 33 seasons, Bachelor Nation will finally get to cheer on an African-American contestant as they attempt to find love on national TV.

During Monday night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, ABC announced that Rachel Lindsay, a 31-year-old lawyer from Dallas, Texas, has been cast as The Bachelorette for season 13.

Et has learned that production for Rachel's season of The Bachelorette will begin shortly after Nick's finale episode airs on March 13.

Bill Maher Vows To Embrace Mormonism If Mitt Romney Takes Over White House In ‘The Messy Truth’

Maher said today that he would convert from atheism to Mormonism if Mitt Romney would seize the White House from Donald Trump. Quite a remark given that Maher famously donated $1M to President Obama’s campaign to defeat Romney in his 2012 re-election bid. "I would happily give that million dollars right now to Mitt Romney if he would take over the country," Maher said during his sit-down with Van Jones on CNN’s The Messy Truth.

PBS Chief: ‘Too Early to Tell’ Donald Trump’s Impact on Public Broadcasting

15 January 2017 10:35 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

PBS is bracing for the changing of the guard in Washington, D.C.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association winter press tour Sunday, PBS president and CEO Paula Kerger said that it was “too early to tell” what President-elect Donald Trump’s impact on federal funding for public broadcasting might be.

“We have periodically gone through periods where our funding has been at risk,” Kerger said. Funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting did not become a topic in the 2016 election — as it did in 2012, when Republican nominee Mitt Romney openly discussed eliminating Cpb funding in a debate with President Obama. But House Speaker Paul Ryan has long been an advocate of eliminating such funding.

In 2016, the federal government provided $445 million to the Cpb. The bulk of that money goes to operational costs at local stations.

“We work very hard talking to legislators about the importance of federal funding,” Kerger said. “It »
