Best and Worst Moments from the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards

1 hour ago

Rihanna doesn't break the fourth wall. Last night at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles, the Unapologetic singer debuted her new single, "Bitch Better Have My Money," and did it in true Rihanna fashion — with knee-high boots, a giant green fur coat and a full-scale replica helicopter looming behind her. There were no giggles, winks or nods at the camera, making the performance a welcome piece of method acting in a night hampered by production snafus and anticlimaxes. The Company Formerly Known as Clear Channel hit a couple... Read the rest of IHeartRadio Music Awards 2015's 10 Best and Worst Moments at RollingStone.com »

Watch Trevor Noah, your new 'Daily Show' host, in action

2 hours ago

Trevor Noah, a 31-year-old comic originally from South Africa, has been named Jon Stewart's official successor as host of "The Daily Show." We'd stop to congratulate him, but we have to catch up on his standup past first. Here he is in his "Daily Show" debut last December lamenting America's Ebola panic. Here's Noah showing off, among other things, his horrifying German-speaking voice.  Turns out "napkin" means other things in other parts of the world. His message to New Yorkers: "Even your crazy people don't want to be bothered." And finally, here he is lamenting censorship on hip-hop radio stations. He'll have plenty of time to get used to the "Daily Show" desk before election season. So far, we're thrilled.   »

Listen: Firewall & Iceberg Podcast No. 274 - 'Younger,' 'American Odyssey'

2 hours ago

Happy Monday, Boys & Girls.  It's time for another installment of The Firewall & Iceberg Podcast. Because I'm traveling today, we recorded this on Friday, but we're posting it today to keep on our regular schedule.  That means that we didn't talk at all about "The Walking Dead" and its finale, just as we haven't talked at all about the show this half-season. If you have any questions about "Walking Dead" and that second half, email us at FirewallIceberg@HitFix.com and we can get to that next podcast? Even without "Walking Dead," we had plenty to talk about, including reviews for "Weird Loners," "Younger" and "American Odyssey," some spoiler-free pre-season "Mad Men" talk and  some chatter about the finale for "The Mindy Project." We also touched on the return of "Outlander" and NBC's bizarre resurrection of "Coach." Next week's podcast? Insanity! But that's off in the future... Today's breakdown: "Coach" Returns »

March Mayhem Heroes Vs. Villains: The Top 8- Xena Fights for Her Crown

2 hours ago

And now it’s gets serious.  Round 4 of Hitfix’s March Mayhem, the Second Annual Tournament of Heroes versus Villains kicks off this morning and the field is reeling from some stupendous upsets in Round 3, as some seemingly unstoppable titans continue their march towards destiny. The defending champion, Xena, Warrior Princess advances to the next round after easily besting poor little Arya Stark. The defeat marks the end of Game of Thrones’ dream of dominance in this tournament.  Across the board, Arya’s tormenter Cersei Lannister also fell to the might of Tony Soprano. Xena will go on to face Oliver Queen for the title of the TV Heroes division.  Queen scored a stunning upset, having defeated Walking Dead’s Rick Grimes.  Grimes had been the top vote getter in an earlier round, but Walking Dead fans stopped to rest just a moment too long. Up in the Movie Heroes division, »

Arya Stark hops aboard the Tardis this fall on ‘Doctor Who’

2 hours ago

Sometime between boarding a ship in Westeros and entering the Free City of Baavos, Arya Stark made a pit stop on a blue phone box flying through space and time. BBC America just announced “Game of Thrones” and “Cyberbully” star Maisie Williams will have a yet unrevealed role on “Doctor Who.” During the announcement, showrunner Steven Moffat was as cryptic as ever: “We’re thrilled to have Maisie Williams joining us on Doctor Who. It’s not possible to say too much about who or what she’s playing, but she is going to challenge the Doctor in very unexpected ways. This time he might just be out of his depth, and we know Maisie is going to give him exactly the right sort of hell.” “Doctor Who” is currently filming two period adventures, “The Girl Who Died” and “The Woman Who Lived” Whether Williams is set to play either »

Trevor Noah to succeed Jon Stewart as 'Daily Show' host

5 hours ago

"The Daily Show" has found a successor to Jon Stewart, and it's... South African comic Trevor Noah. “It’s an honor to follow Jon Stewart," Noah said in Comedy Central's announcement of the move. "He and the team at ‘The Daily Show’ have created an incredible show whose impact is felt all over the world. In my brief time with the show they’ve made me feel so welcome. I’m excited to get started and work with such a fantastic group of people.” “I’m thrilled for the show and for Trevor," Stewart himself added. "He’s a tremendous comic and talent that we’ve loved working with…In fact, I may rejoin as a correspondent just to be a part of it!!!” Since December, Noah has appeared a handful of times as a "Daily Show" correspondent, so this isn't exactly as sharp a departure as Craig Kilborn was replaced by Stewart, »

Season finale review: 'The Walking Dead' - 'Conquer': Wolves at the door?

14 hours ago

A review of tonight's "The Walking Dead" finale coming up just as soon as I want my dish back clean when you're done... No matter what happens in the middle of a season, good or bad, "The Walking Dead" tends to do premieres and finales very well. This is the first time, though, that the series has ended a season with a 90-minute episode, and while the extra-long "Conquer" had some excellent things in it, it also had a number of stupid things, even if the latter occasionally got overtaken by the former. Case in point: the open gate. There is giving Rick an opportunity to prove to the Alexandrians how naive and defenseless they are, and there is having Deanna's other idiot son asking Father Gabriel to close the gate for him, then bolting for no particular reason (maybe he had to do some upper body work before the town meeting? »

Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson at iHeartRadio: Prison Party?

14 hours ago

Here are Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson getting down at the iHeartRadio Music Awards (just before Nick Jonas took over with his own performance). Sure, there may be some lip-syncing here. And some of the dance moves may be bizarre. And the focus on toilets is strange. But I'll say it: This song is addictive. Still not convinced Iggy Azalea isn't just a Fanta girl.   »

Watch: Taylor Swift backed up Madonna at the iHeartRadio Music Awards

15 hours ago

Taylor Swift knows that pop royalty deserves serious respect, and she offered it up in a major way: For Madonna's performance of "Ghosttown" at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Swift served as Madge's guitarist and didn't contribute a single vocal. The duo gave "Ghosttown" a stripped-down acoustic treatment and looked pretty fantastic as they did it. I'd be down for a Swift cover of "Don't Tell Me" soon.    »

First 'Fear the Walking Dead' teaser begins with an outbreak in Los Angeles

15 hours ago

When AMC gave its "Walking Dead" companion series the imperative title "Fear the Walking Dead," there was some discussion of whether the series was a "Walking Dead" prequel or just a parallel story. We appear to have our answer.  AMC debuted the first "Fear the Walking Dead" trailer during Sunday (March 29) night's season finale for "The Walking Dead" and it looks like the companion series will be starting from the beginning. While the first trailer doesn't feature any footage of stars including Cliff Curtis or Kim Dickens, it showcases East Los Angeles (or Silverlake, I suppose), as well as talk about an encroaching virus in five states.  Flu shots won't help! Here's the first 15 second teaser: "Fear the Walking Dead" premieres in summer 2015. »
