Cory Monteith, Paul Walker & More: 2013 In Memoriam

31 December 2013 3:00 PM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

From Cory to Paul to Nelson Mandela, we lost many great, talented people in the year 2013. They may be gone, but they will not be forgotten.

The world lost a fair share of legends in 2013, in the entertainment industry and outside of it. But with every star, like Nelson Mandela and Paul Walker, the amazing outpouring of support and love that followed their deaths proved how much they meant to the world. As we turn the page on 2013, let’s remember the stars we lost this year.

2013 celebrity deaths: Paul Walker, Cory Monteith, James Gandolfini

31 December 2013 11:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The year now ending marks another 12-month period of losing talents who have given television viewers entertainment or information ... and some of those passings, even more sadly, came as major and untimely shocks. Zap2it remembers:

Paul Walker: The actor best-known for the "Fast & Furious" movies had career roots in such TV shows as "Who's the Boss?" "Highway to Heaven" and "Touched by an Angel."

James Gandolfini: He projected so much older as mobster Tony Soprano, many were surprised to learn the three-time Emmy winner only was in his 30s and 40s when he played the part.

Cory Monteith: As Finn Hudson on "Glee," the Canadian-born performer touched fans of all ages both in life and afterward.

Jean Stapleton: Forever TV's top "dingbat," the "All in the Family" actress earned three Emmys as lovably daffy Edith Bunker.

Jonathan Winters: The improvisation genius who inspired his »

“Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”

David Lowery’s Sundance hit is a 2013 film that I can guarantee you will grow in esteem as time goes by. Future generations will be surprised that it didn’t get enough attention on its initial release. I’ve been stunned at its complete absence in the year-end conversation. It’s not a perfect film but there’s a lot to like here from Bradford Young’s gorgeous cinematography to great performances by Casey Affleck, »

21 December 2013 | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

He then gets the bright idea to open his own backyard movie theater, which doesn't sit well with Marge. She tries to pay Hollywood back for the stolen films, but ends up getting an FBI agent (Will Arnett) involved, causing the Simpsons family to go running from the law.

Other celebrities appearing in the episode are Seth Rogen, Judd Apatow, Leslie Mann and Judas Priest lead singer Rob Halford. "The Simpsons" airs Sundays at 8 p.m. Et on Fox. »

The Simpsons in its 25th season: showrunner Al Jean on why it endures

20 December 2013 4:08 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

More than a quarter of a century on from its TV debut, The Simpsons shows no sign of coming to an end. Showrunner Al Jean offers a rare glimpse behind the scenes

When The Simpsons debuted on television in 1987, it was as a series of fleeting animated sketches intended to bridge commercial breaks in The Tracey Ullman Show. There was little reason to think Bart, Homer, Marge and Lisa would endure. They were a peculiar yellow, crudely drawn and conceived as ephemeral. A likelier bet for pop cultural dominance would have been Rick Astley, then storming the charts with Never Gonna Give You Up, or maybe Timothy Dalton as James Bond.

The Ullman show's live audience giggled at the animated snippets, however, so the Fox network adapted the cartoon into a half-hour series in December 1989. Almost a quarter of a century later, The Simpsons is the Us's longest-running sitcom, with a stamina that makes Cheers, »

The Illuminati: the secret society pulling the strings of every major organisation in the world

18 December 2013 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

You only have to look at that hand thing Jay Z does, or Lindsay Lohan's tattoos, or the Guardian's articles on quinoa to know that everyone is part of the great conspiracy

Name: The Illuminati.

Age: 237.

Appearance: A pyramid with an eye on it, a hand signal, a tattoo on a rapper's back, a giant lizard dressed as the Queen. Take your pick.

Really? Are we still pretending that the Illuminati is a thing? Of course it's a thing. Haven't you seen the signs? Haven't you read Dan Brown? Haven't you heard We Do, the Stonecutters' Song, from that episode of The Simpsons?

You're referencing works of fiction here. It's fact. He might look like a simpering, polo-necked millionaire, but Brown exposed the real truth about the Illuminati.

Which is? It's a shadowy conspiracy that has existed since the dawn of time, secretly pulling the strings of every major organisation in the world. »

Espn, NFL Network Hit Fall Highs in Big Week for Football

18 December 2013 6:42 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC kept the momentum going last week, winning the primetime ratings race among young adults despite a season low for “Sunday Night Football.”

The Peacock’s music contest “The Voice” won its hours in adults 18-49 on Monday and Tuesday while football still ruled in primetime to pace the net to its 11th victory in 12 weeks this season (including ties). CBS, behind “The Big Bang Theory” and a strong Tuesday, tied NBC in adults 25-54 while winning for the 10th time this fall in total viewers.

It was a big week overall for football as three games ranked among the top 10 programs in 18-49, according to Nielsen, led for the first time this season by Espn’s “Monday Night Football.” The cable net’s matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears (pictured) delivered the franchise’s best numbers of the season (5.7/15 in 18-49, 16.19m), ranking No. 1 in 18-49 for the week and No. »

'Simpsons': See the touching stealth Marcia Wallace tribute

17 December 2013 12:18 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The Simpsons gave a touching, albeit super-quick, tribute to late co-star Marcia Wallace in Sunday’s episode. An opening credits sequence showing Springfield-as-winter-wonderland featured a brief flash of Wallace’s beloved character, Bart’s teacher Edna Krabappel, with angel wings. She’s joined in the shot by a likeness of Simpsons writer Don Payne, who also died recently. “e wanted to do a tribute to two terrific people, Marcia and Don,” Simpsons executive producer Al Jean told E! News. “The episode was sadly, Don’s last.”

The Heartwarming Simpsons Tribute You Missed

16 December 2013 11:19 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Chances are you missed a heartwarming Simpsons tribute from the Sunday, Dec. 15 episode of the hit Fox animated comedy. In the opening couch gag titled "White Christmas Blues," The Simpsons not only paid tribute to Seinfeld and the grand tradition of Festivus, but it also had a nice little moment for Mrs. Krabappel, Bart's teacher played by the late Marcia Wallace. In the blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene, Mrs. Krabappel is featured as angel with her signature no nonsense arm-crossed stance next to late Simpsons writer Don Payne.

The Simpsons Review: “White Christmas Blues” (Season 25, Episode 8)

16 December 2013 10:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Simpsons has a long, proud history of Christmas specials, from “Grift of the Magi” (the one with Funzo), “Skinner’s Sense of Snow” (the one where the kids are trapped at school), and “‘Tis the Fifteenth Season” (the one where Homer realizes his holiday selfishness). Heck, even the first ever episode of The Simpsons was a Christmas special, “The Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire.” Of course, this opens up an interesting paradox since the Simpsons themselves never age and they’ve had about 14 different Christmases. So with the exception of that first one, in which the Simpsons added Santa’s Little Helper to their family, I guess each new holiday episode usurps the previous one.

So this Christmas, the Simpsons celebrated with a few extra friends as a combination of radioactive steam and particulate from the tire fire meant that Springfield was the only city in the country to have a white Christmas. »

Fox’s ‘Family Guy,’ ‘Simpsons,’ Others Hit Season Highs Sunday

16 December 2013 9:34 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox’s animated comedies, boosted by a big NFL lead-in and benefiting from facing a lackluster football contest in primetime, drew their best ratings in nearly a year Sunday, a night that also saw a solid-enough season finale for CBS vet “Survivor.”

NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” matchup of the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers averaged a 4.9 rating/13 share in adults 18-49 and 14.6 million viewers overall on the net’s stations from 8:30 to 11 p.m., with these numbers expected to rise by about 10% in the nationals. The game, which saw the home team Steelers open up a 20-point halftime lead en route to a 30-20 victory, looks likely to stand as the season’s lowest-rated “Snf” game.

In Nielsen’s metered markets, the game did a 39.4 household rating/54 share in Pittsburgh and a 33.2/48 in Cincinnati.

Fox’s night opened with the conclusion of the Green Bay Packers-Dallas Cowboys game, »
