17 minutes ago

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly tore into Stephen Colbert on Monday's episode of “The O'Reilly Factor,” using his Tip of the Day segment to call out the Comedy Central host for a recent Isis-related bit. “Mr. Colbert and others of his ilk have no bleeping clue how to fight the jihad,” O'Reilly said. “They don't know anything. And when somebody gets beheaded, their reaction is, ‘Oh, that's bad!’ But by being completely vacant, it doesn't stop these people from mocking ideas that might have some value.” All this comes on the heels of one of last week's episodes of “The Colbert. »

Just lost a ton of respect for you, and I've been a fan for years, both of your work in Rage and your work for workers rights since,” 5 Point Cafe & Bar owner David Meinert wrote over the weekend on the establishment's. »

FCC Spikes NFL Broadcasts Blackout Rule

1 hour ago

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) repealed its sports blackout rules in a ruling Monday. The action eliminates the Commision's protection of the NFL's 39-year-old blackout policy, which prohibited local stations to broadcast a game that had not sold a certain percentage of tickets at least 72 hours prior to kickoff. The Commision's decision, however, does not guarantee that the league will put an end to blackouts as the NFL will still be allowed to continue its private policy. If it decides to continue with blackouts, the NFL will have no FCC backed protection and will have to explore other options »

‘Selfie’ Review: Despite Its Awful Name, This Romantic Comedy Shows Surprising Promise

4 hours ago

ABC definitely nailed its modern take on “My Fair Lady” by creating a social media-obsessed version of Eliza Doolittle — assuming the goal was to make her immediately unlikable both to her fellow actors and to the audience at large. Saddling “Selfie” with an equally terrible name ensures it will have an uphill battle to even get people to tune in, much less stick around. Add it to the growing list of ABC's other offensive-to-women show titles like “Cougar Town” and “Trophy Wife.” Both of those shows struggled to overcome their monikers, with the former eking out a small but »
