Emmys mystery: Was last year's win by 'Colbert Report' over 'Daily Show' a fluke?'

17 hours ago

At last year's Emmys, after "The Colbert Report" finally defeated "The Daily Show" for Best Variety Series, journalists grilled Stephen Colbert in the press room about how he was able to finally take down the decade-long champ.

Which past 'Big Brother' winners do you want to see shake up the Season 16 house?

18 hours ago

(Pictured left to right: Mike 'Boogie' Malin, Will Kirby, Rachel Reilly, Jordan Lloyd) The reviews are in, and "Big Brother" Season 16 ranks as one of the most predictable seasons ever. Thanks to the Bomb Squad taking control of the house week after week, we can tell who's going home from a mile away. And since predictability can lead to boredom (and low ratings), we have an idea for how CBS can make this season more exciting for viewers at home: Bring back former winners! Many of these previous champs know how to make good TV and can show this group of houseguests how to keep things interesting. CBS should let them take control for a week or two -- maybe as coaches, maybe as challenge hosts, or heck, maybe even as full-fledged players in the running again for the $500,000 prize. The question is, which "Big Brother" winners do you want »

27 July 2014 5:58 PM, PDT

When it comes to predicting Emmys, we might have a thing or two to learn from our Top 24 Users who reaped the best scores among all of our site readers last year. Out of those two dozen pundits, 19 scored better than any of our vaunted Experts and Editors, while the other five tied our very best Experts. And we all remember how many surprises there were in 2013. (Click here for our Top 24's current Emmy predictions.) -Break- Consider Philip T. In 2013, he tied two other users as Gold Derby's best Emmy predictor with 57% accuracy.
