ABC Republican Debate Draws Big Saturday Audience: 13.2 Million Viewers
The return of Donald Trump to the stage helped lift ratings for last night’s Republican presidential primary debate on ABC, which has drawn the largest audience for a political gathering of either party in 2016 — and the network’s largest non-sports audience on a Saturday in more than 14 years.
Nielsen estimates that 13.2 million watched the Gop New Hampshire debate from 8:15-10:45 p.m. Et — up from the 11.09 million who watched the Fox Business Network debate on Jan. 14 and the 12.47 million tuning in for the Trump-less Fox News Channel debate on Jan. 28. It also was much higher-rated than the two Democratic debates of the year on NBC (10.16 million on Jan. 17) and MSNBC (4.47 million last Thursday).
The ABC Republican debate special delivered the network’s largest audience on a Saturday since September 2001. In January 2012, a Gop debate on the Alphabet drew 6.27 million viewers.
While the viewership for the Gop New Hampshire debate was very impressive, »

Seven Live Performances By U2 That Absolutely Rocked
As everyone gears up for halftime at the Super Bowl I couldn’t help but to think about bands that really rock live in concert. And if there’s one thing I’d love to be in this world (other than a writer for this website) it would be a rock star. Movie stars, I guess, sure. They have a sweet life but nothing’s like connecting with a crowd in a live setting. And of all the bands that really connect in concert, I think U2 is at the top if not the very top of the list (Bruce Springsteen, Rolling Stones, and

Dark Net Season 1 Episode 3 Review: “Exploit”
As great as I expected Showtime’s new docu-series Dark Net to be (and it’s still managed to exceed my expectations), I knew that, eventually, the series was going to have to tackle one of the more troubling aspects of the real-life dark web, pedophilia, and this finally happened in this week’s new episode, titled “Exploit.” As with the previous episodes of Dark Net, “Exploit” focuses on a couple of different aspects or stories. The first, as I mentioned, is the incredibly disturbing and overwhelmingly sad access to child pornography on the dark web (or deep web). I’m not going to go into

‘Gilmore Girls’ Revival: Liza Weil Confirms She’s Returning
Don’t worry, “Gilmore Girls” fans — Paris Geller will be returning to Stars Hollow, too.
Liza Weil is the latest original cast member to be confirmed to return for the upcoming Netflix revival. The “How to Get Away With Murder” star told E! News this weekend that she’ll be reprising her role as Paris.
“I start on Tuesday, which I really feel like bodes well that I get to start on a Tuesday being that we used to be on a Tuesday,” she said at the aTVfest in Atlanta. “Tuesday is my first day and I’m nervous!”
Weil said she’ll be in two episodes of the four-part revival, which takes place over the course of a year with each episode focusing on a different season, and has only read the scripts of the two episodes she’s in.
“It’s very emotional to read them,” she said. »

Coach Bobby Finstock from Teen Wolf Gives the Best Advice Ever
As I watched Teen Wolf for the 30th time last night I couldn’t help yet again realize how amazing coach Finstock was. I don’t know what’s up with Jay Tarses these days, but man do we need more characters like him in the cinematic universe. Unfortunately the last time we saw Tarses on television was in 1993. Personally I think that’s just way too long. Coach Finstock will go down as easily one of my top five sports coaches in movie history. The man ate hard boiled eggs during games. You really can’t beat that. Anyway, here’s the advice he

Watch: Zoolander and Hansel Talk Political Fashion on ‘SNL’
There’s only one thing hotter than fashion right now, and that’s politics — at least, according to male models Derek Zoolander and Hansel.
Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson stopped by “Saturday Night Live’s” “Weekend Update” segment as the ridiculously good looking men, giving their opinions on not fashion, but the current political environment, with the “Iowa couscous” having just wrapped up. Unsurprisingly, this confused co-host Colin Jost.
“We’re not here to talk about fashion,” Wilson told him. “We’re here to talk about the one thing everyone wants to hear male models talk about: politics.”
Of course, the conversation inevitably turned to fashion, with the models commenting on the candidates’ styles. Clinton’s rocking a ’90s look, “which is really hot right now,” Hansel explained. Meanwhile, her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, who made his own elongated appearance on the show that night, dons a style best described as “99 percent off at JCPenny. »

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Noah’s Desire to Confess
Next week is going to start off with a bang on the Young and the Restless, and not in a good way for the residents of Genoa City. We’ve seen so much go on over the course of the past few weeks.

Billy was supposed to die when he was hit by that car and in a coma after his brother had the machines turned off. While that would have been difficult

Seven Celebrities With Strange Physical Flaws
Most of us movie, music and television fans are made to believe that our favorite celebrities are perfect in just about every way possible. At least that’s what the perception is. By no means do I mean socially perfect. God knows that celebrities don’t lead the most usual personal lives. However, appearance wise there’s a ton of pressure for them to look a certain way. What I’m getting at is that flaws are generally not the norm when it comes to celebrities. In general we see them as physically superior to most people. However, this is not always the case.

‘Saturday Night Live’ Ratings Solid With Host Larry David
With the Presidential primary campaign in full swing, Saturday Night Live delivered another solid ratings showing last night, with the show hosted by Larry David and featuring appearances by Democratic candidate (and David doppelgänger) Bernie Sanders drawing a 5.1 household rating in the metered markets and a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating in the 25 markets with local people meters. That was on par in households with the Tina Fey-Amy Poehler-hosted holiday SNL edition (5.1… »
Three Best Gop Debate Moments – From Ben Carson’s Kickoff Fumble To Candidate Contretemps
Best Debate Kickoff Ever: ABC News sure knows how to start a political debate with a bang! Ben Carson, apparently still waking up from his Florida rest stop after the Iowa caucuses, did not hear, or did not understand, when ABC News moderators Martha Raddatz and David Muir introduced him, so he continued to wait in the wings while a camera recorded his early debate fumble. A staffer peeking out from behind the curtain to tell him to make his entrance did not impress… »
TV News Teams Swarm New Hampshire in Preparation For Tuesday’s Influential Vote
Manchester, New Hampshire — The TV production tents are on ice — literally — outside the Radisson Hotel in downtown Manchester today as news crews prepare for action in the first-in-the-nation primary on Tuesday.
The snowfall last week made for chilly temperatures in the tents housing equipment and some personnel for NBC News, ABC News and other outlets. Inside the hotel, news orgs have overrun the lobby and restaurant area.
A Bloomberg News suite is carefully marked “invitation-only.” MSNBC has taken over Jd’s Tavern with plans to produce its daytime shows from the bar attached to the Radisson’s restaurant starting on Monday. Today’s edition of NBC’s “Meet the Press” originated from the hotel’s Armory Ballroom.
In the Radisson restaurant this morning, virtually every patron had a news credential hanging around his or her neck. Production staffers have been in the hotel long enough that server Jackie can guess what they want for breakfast. »

The 10 Most Disappointing Television Finales of All Time
I have some bad news to share with you. It is inevitable that your favorite TV shows will come to an end. Unless your favorite show is The Simpsons, and if that is the case you could be watching that forever.

Here is a list of the most disappointing television finales of all time.
