CBS Seeks Extra Revenue, Nielsen Boost by Expanding TV Ads to Older Episodes Online

11 hours ago

In one initiative with Comcast launched three weeks ago, CBS quietly began running the same ads from the new network airing of “Madam Secretary” on every episode of the show viewed online for the next three days. A first for TV networks and so far occurring only on Comcast systems, the move could open the door for viewership of older episodes — not just that for the latest episode — to be counted in some Nielsen ratings. »

‘Star Wars’ Sets in Tunisia Are Safe From Terrorists, Say Tourism Officials

12 hours ago

Reports that historical “Star Wars” locations in the country are under threat from terrorists and Isis are “without foundation,” Mohammed Sayem of Tozeur’s tourism commission told The Associated Press on Thursday. The city of Tataouine, on the fringes of the Sahara, was made famous in 1976 when George Lucas transformed it in Luke Skywalker’s home planet, “Tatooine,” and since then the town has become a mecca for “Star Wars” fans.

‘While We’re Young’ Review: Ben Stiller Navigates the Gen X-Millennial Gap

15 hours ago

The phrase “generation gap” was popularized in the late 1960s to illustrate the wide divide between the men and women who grew up with the Depression and World War II and their counter-cultural progeny, but as with many ideas the baby boomers think they invented, it’s been around for a long time. Writer-director Noah Baumbach‘s latest, “While We’re Young,” pointedly opens with a quotation from Ibsen’s 1892 play “The Master Builder,” in which a character reveals his horror over the ravenous nature of the next generation. It’s a smart opening salvo, one which allows Baumbach to tell a the-youth-will-devour-us story. »
