The 5 Strangest Moments From This Week’s ‘Bachelor’

3 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If you’ve been keeping up with this season of “The Bachelor” — and really, how could you not be? — you know that out of an original pool of 30 women vying for the heart of farmer Chris, we’re down to two: Becca and Whitney. (Listed alphabetically, of course, so as to not disclose personal preference.)

The remaining two ladies are probably two of the blandest, least-volatile girls out of the original 30, so it seems Chris has actually done a pretty good job… at least at finding someone who won’t mind spending the rest of their adult life living on a corn farm.

In just one week, our Bachelor will announce which of the remaining two bores has won his heart. But in the meantime, we got the pleasure of remembering why we love watching the show by bringing back some of the 28 eliminated ladies, sticking them in a room »

Tribune Chief Peter Liguori Talks 2016 Political Ad Bonanza, CW Relationship

8 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tribune Media CEO Peter Liguori can’t wait for the 2016 presidential race to begin in earnest.

Tribune’s local TV stations raked in about $150 million-$155 million in political advertising dollars during the 2012 presidential election cycle. “We’re going to crush that number in 2016,” Liguori told the crowd Monday at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom investor conference in San Francisco.

Part of the reason for Liguori’s confidence is that Tribune’s station group has nearly doubled in size since 2012, thanks to its 2013 acquisition of Local TV LLC. The group of 42 stations now includes multiple outlets in 13 key swing states such as Ohio, Illinois and Pennsylvania.

“We’re going to have two rounds of robust advertising” during the campaign cycle, Liguori said. “In some of those markets we have three stations. (Spending) in California could approach $1 billion. We’re going to take advantage of that.”

Liguori also talked up »

Well, not ringing off the hook, but he did have several messages waiting for him on his answering machine.

Ok, sure, a straightforward just-the-facts edit might rob producers of the ability to create narrative ebb and flow over the course of two-hour episodes, but there’d be undeniable advantages, too.

The Following Season Premiere Recap: Wait, Who Was Driving That Car?

9 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Kevin Bacon spends most of the first eight minutes of The Following‘s Season 3 premiere smiling. This is notable, because it’s the longest stretch we’ve seen the eternally tortured Ryan Hardy happy in the series to date.

And given what happens in rest of the hour, it’s likely the last time we’ll see him this way for quite a while.

What new ways have the depraved minds of the world found to torment Bacon’s beat-down alter ego? What threat lurks now that Joe Carroll is — for the moment, at least — locked away in a federal prison? »
