Future of Nick Cannon’s ‘Caught on Camera’ Up in the Air at NBC
Nick Cannon swears he’s not returning to “America’s Got Talent,” contract be damned, but what about his other NBC show? The future of “Caught on Camera With Nick Cannon” is still undecided at the network level, TheWrap has learned. And even if the multi-hyphenate isn’t currently burning his bridge with NBC executives, the economics of more episodes may not work out. That’s not necessarily because of how much third-year series “Caught on Camera” costs — any first-year Accounting major knows strong revenue can offset some bills. Unfortunately, the plug-and-play series has managed just a 0.7 Nielsen rating among adults 18-49 thus. »

David Attenborough to Narrate BBC’s ‘Blue Planet II’
David Attenborough has come on board to narrate “Blue Planet II,” a seven-part series from the BBC that explores the world’s oceans.
He said: “I am truly thrilled to be joining this new exploration of the underwater worlds that cover most of our planet, yet are still its least known.”
The series, previously known as “Ocean,” will be launched to international TV buyers at BBC Worldwide Showcase in Liverpool, England, which runs Feb. 19-22. The event attracts around 700 delegates.
The series is a BBC Studios Natural History Unit production, co-produced with BBC America, Wdr and France Televisions, in partnership with the Open University. The first “The Blue Planet” series was broadcast in 2001.
“’Blue Planet II’ explores the latest frontiers of scientific discovery, from icy-white polar seas to vibrant blues of the coral atolls, from the storm-tossed green Atlantic coastline to the black depths of the alien deep,” according to a statement.

Tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw, Braun Strowman gets the competition he craves in a matchup with the 7-foot Big Show in Los Angeles. In honor of this match up I decided to take a bit of a further look at Braun Strowman’s social media accounts. Did you know he has a Twitter account that started in 2013 with 76.1K followers but he has a total of 16 tweets? Hopefully the WWE has told him to get more active on Twitter because of those 16 tweets, 5 have been this month. While Strowman doesn’t say a whole bunch, his tweets

A Daily Show White House Administration That Would 100% Work
Every single member of the Donald Trump administration is being ripped to shreds by the media and by politicians themselves. There hasn’t been one appointment that wasn’t questionable nor has there been one day without mention of a scandal or some kind of offense that people deem pretty awful. At this point it’s almost impossible to think that this administration is going to last, let alone do anything to serve our country in a positive way. So I have an idea. One of the White House’s biggest opponents is The Daily Show. The Daily Show has always made it a

PopPolitics: Why Late Night Is Thriving in the Trump Era (Listen)
In the first two weeks of Donald Trump’s administration, four late-night talk shows told 195 jokes about the new president, exceeding even the level of humor about him during the campaign.
Robert Lichter, the director of the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University, tells Variety‘s “PopPolitics” on SiriusXM that “it doesn’t seem to hurt anybody’s ratings to be at war with Trump, and I suspect that in the entertainment industry now and in the L.A. area in general it is kind of a badge of honor if you are on the Trump enemy list.”
In short, he says, “They have nothing to gain from going soft on Trump.”
Colbert’s ratings in particular have gotten a boost in »

How I Completely Gave up on The Mindy Project Even Though it’s Still Good
A weird thing happens when a show you like appears on another network. It’s almost like when a friend of yours moves out of town. You’re 100% bound to talk to that person less and when all is said and done you might not be great friends with them anymore. It’s not The Mindy Project’s fault but for some reason ever since it moved to Hulu I haven’t watched it once. It’s the same show. It has the same actors. It has the same writing. Mindy Kaling is as funny as she’s ever been. But I just don’t watch it
