In ‘Adam Ruins Everything’ Season 2, Adam Learns Some New Things

23 minutes ago

Adam Conover’s character in “Adam Ruins Everything” is all about ruining everything, obviously. He tells the truth about things such as fad diets and global warming based on evidence that works against what people might commonly think. In the original College Humor shorts, Conover was the almost omniscient and pestering purveyor of knowledge — running into the middle of personal dinners or intimate events to drop facts. In the TruTV show, however, he takes a step back.

Where’s the James Cameron of Virtual Reality to Take Medium Mainstream?

1 hour ago

Numerous A-list movie directors have been out on a date with virtual reality, but no Hollywood filmmaker has stepped up to put a ring it. Not the way James Cameron did with modern digital 3-D thanks to his $2 billion-grossing 2009 fantasy blockbuster “Avatar.” It was a watershed filmmaking moment that enhanced his brand so significantly, we still associate him with the technology despite almost a decade of delays on four planned “Avatar” sequels.

2 hours ago

Kendrick Lamar, Katy Perry and The Weeknd lead nominations for the 2017 Video Music Awards (VMAs), MTV announced Tuesday. Rather than release the full list all at once, MTV opted to unfold each category one-by-one and via Instagram Live.

(Some) Nielsen Ratings Now Include Hulu and YouTube TV

2 hours ago

Nielsen TV ratings now include Hulu and YouTube TV viewing — sort of.
