Jake Tapper Teases How He'll Handle ‘Fangate’ at Florida Debate (Exclusive)

1 hour ago

Things might get heated Tuesday night during the CNN-moderated Florida governor's debate, so will moderator Jake Tapper cool things off with a fan? “I plan to discuss fans, air-conditioning units, heaters and other climate appliances as little as possible,” Tapper joked to TheWrap about the “fangate” controversy over Democrat Charlie Crist bringing a blower to last week's debate with Gov. Rick Scott. Scott didn't come out to participate for several minutes because he took issue with Crist's little fan behind the podium.

‘Eternity: The Movie’ Review: Musical 80s Sendup Falls Prey to the Earnestness It Parodies

2 hours ago

Eternity: The Movie” is a satire in search of a target, the cinematic manifestation of a sarcastic teenager's yearning to make fun of something, anything, whatever's lying around. The various bullseyes of director Ian Thorpe's dramatic eye-rolling end up being aspiring musicians, male friendships, and a vague concept of “the 80s” that encompasses sax solos, blue eye shadow, Tab soda, and AIDS panic. Too earnest to be satisfyingly arch and too scattered to succeed as parody, Thorpe's goofy musical comedy only manages a sporadic charm through the occasional bon mot or a madcap flight of fancy. More often, the film. »

Ratings: CBS's ‘The Millers’ Return Loses Half of ‘Big Bang Theory’ Lead-In

3 hours ago

CBS's “The Millers” got a decent demo number in its sophomore season return on Monday, but dropped 33 percent from the series debut last fall.

NBC topped Monday's primetime in ratings, while ABC had the most viewers. The latter network was preempted by NFL coverage in Pittsburgh, however, which makes its early numbers subject to change. The CW is in the same boat, as it was preempted by the NFL game in Houston. NBC was first. »
