‘Will & Grace’ Cast and Creators Rip Reports That NBC Sitcom Uses a Laugh Track

2 hours ago

Ok, Ok, Ok, you don’t use a laugh track, “Will & Grace.” The cast and creators of the revived NBC sitcom participated in a Tribeca TV Festival panel discussion early Saturday evening, when writer/executive producer Max Mutchnick and the gang reacted pretty strongly to the idea that they use a laugh track. Here’s where it gets weird: nobody brought it up. “That’s a live audience,” Mutchnick started off after a strange non-sequitur segue from star Megan Mullally. “A lot of people are now writing about this, the ‘canned laughter.'” “We try to pull back the laughs as much as we can. »

Colin Kaepernick has scores of athletes, fans and even the NFL chief supporting his right to take a knee during the national anthem in protest of police brutality, but no one has expressed their approval of his actions quite like his own mom, Teresa. When the mother of the former San Francisco 49er quarterback learned that President Trump said at an Alabama rally that NFL owners should “get that son of a bitch off the field” when players protested by sitting out the anthem, Teresa tweeted, “Guess that makes me a proud b—h!” Guess that makes me a proud bitch! »

Jk Rowling Slaps Trump on Privilege: ‘Some People Don’t Get Given Millions by Daddy, Donnie’

4 hours ago

There certainly is no love lost between President Donald Trump and J.K. Rowling, as was once again proven by the “Harry Potter” author’s Saturday tweet over the debate about NFL players kneeling during the national anthem in protest over police brutality. Rowling’s button was pushed when the Potus tweeted that football players who have the “privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL” should not be allowed to sit out the anthem. Rowling tossed Trump’s words right back in his face. “‘Privilege.’ Some people don’t get given millions by Daddy, Donnie. They actually earn it, »

‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Sneaks Past ‘It,’ Heads for $38 Million Opening

13 hours ago

Fox’s R-Rated sequel “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is off to a solid start at the box office, on track to dethrone the two-week No. 1 run of “It” with a $15.3 million Friday total and a projected $38.7 million opening from 4,003 screens, according to industry estimates. That gives the $104 million film a 6.5 percent higher opening than its 2015 predecessor, “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” which opened to $36.2 million on Valentine’s Day Weekend in 2015. If Saturday totals can push the opening tally up to Fox’ pre-weekend projection of $40 million, “Kingsman” would become only the third live-action September »
