World Series Posts Least-Watched Starter Ever

2 hours ago

Rough news for Fox: the all-time low overnight ratings for Tuesday's game one of the World Series translated to the Mlb championship's least-watched starter in modern TV metrics.

That falls below the previous low set in 2012 when just a shade more viewers (50,000) tuned into see the Giants beat the Detroit Tigers.

3 hours ago

When director Peter Sellars and composer John AdamsThe Death of Klinghoffer had its initial runs in Brussels and New York in 1991, it caused a sensation and a furor.

Considering, for instance, that the aftermath of the public uproar left talented librettist Alice Goodman virtually unable to work, the piece languished for two decades, with major opera houses

Stakes Are High in 'The Gambler' Trailer

5 hours ago

The first trailer for Rupert Wyatt’s The Gambler shows a different side of Mark Wahlberg — one that’s leaner and more desperate than the one on display in his last film, Transformers: Age of Extinction.

In this remake of the 1974 original, which starred James Caan, Wahlberg plays Jim Bennett, a college professor with a gambling addiction that leads him to lay his own life on the line as collateral against a loan from a gangster played by The Wire’s Michael Kenneth Williams — a move that brings
