Mike Huckabee Campaign Pays $25K to Settle With ‘Eye of the Tiger’ Songwriters

27 June 2016 8:04 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Mike Huckabee is still paying for his failed presidential campaign. The former candidate has been ordered to pay $25,000 for using the Survivor hit song “Eye of the Tiger” at a political event last year without the band’s permission, CNNMoney reported. Huckabee played the triumphant song — best known as the theme for “Rocky III” — at a rally he held for Kim Davis, the controversial Kentucky county clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

7 May 2016 1:06 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It’s time to start thinking about Donald Trump’s choices for a vice president nominee Chris Christie has endorsed Trump could form a tough-talking ticket. Condoleezza Rice would be a clear frontrunner, but her ties to the Bush family might make her think twice. Ben Carson can say, “it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to know that was a bad idea,” if Trump slips up. Mike Huckabee is a true conservative who seems like respect Trump. Joe Scarborough is a politician-turned-broadcaster who is friendly with Trump. Marco Rubio and Trump exchanged harsh words during the election cycle, but crazier things have happened. »

Megyn Kelly to Host Primetime Special on Fox Broadcasting

15 March 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Megyn Kelly will, for at least an hour, jump from Fox News Channel to Fox prime time.

The Fox News anchor, whose stature has grown during the most recent election cycle as she has tangled with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, will host a one-hour prime-time special on Fox Broadcasting.

Bill Geddie, who helped lead ABC’s “The View” for 17 years alongside creator Barbara Walters, will serve as executive producer. The program will be produced by his company May Avenue Productions.

During the one-hour special Kelly will interview celebrities from the worlds of politics, entertainment and other areas of human interest. She will also discuss the year she has had covering the 2016 presidential campaign.

Viacom Reboots MTV News in First Step Toward Reviving Network

11 February 2016 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

MTV may be about to invoke memories of Kurt Loder and Tabitha Soren.

At MTV, those two correspondents interviewed rock stars and U.S. presidential candidates, making MTV as reliable a news source for a certain generation as Dan Rather or Tom Brokaw. In a different era,  MTV News would break into programming upon learning of seminal events like the suicide of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, and spur interest in causes (“Rock the Vote,” anyone?) dear to the hearts of its youthful viewers.

MTV News never quite went away entirely – there’s a website, a Twitter feed, a YouTube channel and a Facebook page that offer information about MTV programming as well as some pop-culture aggregation  – but executives at the Viacom-owned outlet are attempting to breathe new life into the property. And they hope their efforts will make MTV more relevant to a new generation of viewers trying to »

'Triumph's Election Special' is the best campaign coverage you'll find

11 February 2016 6:49 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We have somehow arrived in the era of the surprise release. Two weeks ago, with no advance warning, Louis C.K. dropped the first episode of a series of filmed plays featuring an all-star cast. The day before the Super Bowl, Beyoncé (who has some prior experience with surprise releases) put out a new single that she was going to perform during the halftime show. Yesterday, Funny or Die premiered a 50-minute Donald Trump parody biopic starring Johnny Depp, that no one knew was in the works. And Hulu this week, with virtually no promotion, gave us the 85-minute comedy gift that is Triumph's Election Special 2016, in which Triumph the Insult Comic Dog (and his handler, Robert Smigel) travels to Iowa and New Hampshire to harass the presidential candidates and their constituents. The special's a collection of sketches, some putting Triumph front and center with the candidates — though Mike Huckabee, »

Trevor Noah Mocks Santorum’s Endorsement of Rubio: ‘Worst Hype Man in History!’

5 February 2016 5:21 AM, PST | Mediaite - TV | See recent Mediaite - TV news »

In this chock-full political week, it'easy to lose track of what's important, and so with campaigning in New Hampshire in full swing, many of us have not had time to properly mourn the losses of three giants in the Gop field, as measured by proximity to the margin of error. On Thursday night's The Daily Show, host Trevor Noah took a moment to reflect on fallen candidates Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, and especially Rick Santorum. »

Watch: Stephen Colbert Explains Iowa Caucus in ‘Hunger Games’ Terms

4 February 2016 12:47 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In a reprisal of his “Hungry for Power Games” spoof segment, Stephen Colbert provided commentary on post-Iowa caucus election changes Wednesday night on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”

“Being a candidate can’t be a picnic,” said Colbert. “It’s so cutthroat and heartless. It’s like the ‘Hunger Games.’ No, it’s more than that. It’s the ‘Hungry for Power Games.'”

Dressed as “Hunger Games'” host Caesar Flickerman (played in the films by Stanley Tucci) with champagne in hand, Colbert paid tribute to Rand Paul, Martin O’Malley and Mike Huckabee —  all three of whom announced the end of their presidential campaigns following the results of the Iowa caucus.

“There has been a bloodbath in Iowa’s cornucopia, an unprecedented harvest of brave tributes,” Colbert announced before acknowledging each “fallen” candidate. “Let us now bid farewell to those who have fallen, for the rest your time »

Stephen Colbert Casts Off Campaign Tributes Rand Paul, Martin O'Malley

4 February 2016 8:12 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Stephen Colbert bid farewell to several 2016 presidential tributes felled by the Iowa caucuses on the latest installment of The Late Show's riotous Hunger Games send-up, "Hungry for Power Games."

First up, Republican candidate Rand Paul, whose early campaign gimmicks included a series of viral videos in which he burned and shredded the United States tax code. Taking a page from Paul's "book of heavy-handed metaphors," Colbert dropped a portrait of the Kentucky senator in a toaster and cackled, "Goodbye Rand, you're toast!" But when the picture popped back up unscathed, »

Stephen Colbert bids farewell to three tributes in 'Hungry for Power Games'

4 February 2016 7:44 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the best parts of the 2016 presidential campaign has been Stephen Colbert's take on the hopeful candidates we've lost along the way.  As "Julius Flickerman," brother of Hunger Games' Caesar Flickerman, Colbert dons a fantastic wig and jacket and raises a glass of various alcoholic drinks to toast those who have dropped out of the race in the "Hungry for Power Games."  After the "Iowa Cornucopia Bloodbath" saw the departure of three wannabe presidents (well, four, but Rick Santorum announced he was leaving after Late Show was taped ... which means maybe we'll get another "Hungry for Power Games" segment tonight!), Colbert had an embarrassment of riches: Rand Paul, from District 12; Martin O'Malley, from District Abs; and Mike Huckabee, from Huckadistrict. »

Stephen Colbert Honors the Fallen Presidential Candidates in The Hungry for Power Games on The Late Show

4 February 2016 6:20 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

After each new presidential candidate has left the race, Stephen Colbert has taken the time to honor him or her in The Hungry for Power Games on The Late Show, and since the Iowa Caucuses caused quite a few more candidates to suspend their campaigns, the late night host was quite busy when he channeled Caesar Flickerman again last night. Colbert filmed The Late Show before Rick Santorum had officially left the race, but even without Santorum, he still had three other former candidates to discuss: Rand Paul, Martin O’Malley, and Mike Huckabee. In the video below, Colbert, decked out with his purple-ish

Ted Cruz Wins Iowa's Republican Caucuses

1 February 2016 8:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

With all of the state's 1,681 precincts reporting, Cruz won 28 percent of the vote, Donald Trump took 24 percent, and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio came in third with 23 percent.

Ted Cruz Wins Iowa's Republican Caucuses

1 February 2016 8:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ted Cruz won the Iowa Republican caucuses Monday night. Cruz won 28 percent of the vote, Donald Trump took 24 percent, and Marco Rubio came in third with 23 percent. As the votes from around Iowa rolled in and Trump's tally fell behind, the normally hyper-active Twitter account of @RealDonaldTrump fell uncharacteristically silent for more than five hours. The other candidates - Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, Jim Gilmore, Mike Huckabee, John Kasich, Rand Paul, Jeb Bush and Rick Santorum - received a collective 25 percent of the vote. Even before Cruz's victory speech, the Iowa vote was already thinning the crowded Republican herd. »

Mike Huckabee Suspends His Presidential Campaign

1 February 2016 7:44 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Mike Huckabee has become the second victim of the Iowa caucuses. The Republican candidate announced late Monday that he is ending his run for president. The former Arkansas governor — who won the Iowa caucuses in 2008 — barely registered this time around, in a competition won by Ted Cruz. Huckabee took to Twitter to officially step aside, writing, “I am officially suspending my campaign. Thank you for all your loyal support.” Also Read: Ted Cruz Upsets Donald Trump In Iowa Caucuses Earlier in the evening, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley dropped out of the Democratic race.

Adele Denies Donald Trump Permission to Use Her Music on Campaign Trail

1 February 2016 11:36 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Donald Trump "could've had it all," but now he'll have nothing, as Adele has denied him permission from using any of her music on the campaign trail. The real estate magnate has used "Rolling in the Deep" and "Skyfall" at various events to rev up the crowd, but that will soon come to an end as a rep for the famous singer tells E! News, "Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning." An Adele fan, Trump attended her Radio City Music Hall concert at the end of 2015. Trump isn't the first politician to appropriate the British singer's music for campaign use. Mike Huckabee also shared a cover of Adele's "Hello" »

Adele to Donald Trump: Don’t Use My Songs

Donald Trump and his supporters should not be “Rolling in the Deep” at his campaign events. An Adele spokesperson told the U.K.’s Independent that the singer “has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning.” The statement comes after some Adele fans were upset to learn that the leading Gop presidential candidate — who has made no shortage of controversial statements on the campaign trail — was regularly playing Adele’s 2010 hit single from her album “21.” Also Read: Mike Huckabee's Adele 'Hello' Parody Makes Him the Cringe Candidate (Video) According to the media covering Trump’s rallies, »

Fox News Gop Undercard Debate: Live Blog

28 January 2016 3:55 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Welcome to the TheWrap’s live blog for tonight’s Fox News Gop debate’s undercard event. The early debate, often nicknamed the “Happy Hour” debate, will feature Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, Carly Fiorina and Jim Gilmore. Did you forget there’s a Republican candidate named Jim Gilmore? We understand. This is probably the last “Happy Hour” debate of this presidential campaign, since some candidates are expected to drop out if they underperform in the Iowa caucuses. Tonight’s participants received a minimum of 1 percent support in at least one recent national poll without qualifying for the primetime debate. If early debates are your thing, »

Adele’s Lawyers to Huckabee: Hello, It’s We, We Were Wondering if You’d Stop Using Our Song

28 January 2016 2:39 PM, PST | Mediaite - TV | See recent Mediaite - TV news »

Yesterday, I delivered the good news that presidential candidate Mike Huckabee parodied Adele's wildly popular single, "Hello," in an attempt to woo voters ahead of the Iowa caucus. Today, I'm bringing even more good news: Adele knows about the misguided ad, or at the very least, her team does, and they're not as excited about the whole thing as I am. »
