Jordan Peele’s Second Act: How the ‘Key & Peele’ Comedy Star Became a Bonafide Horror Director With ‘Get Out’

21 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jordan Peele’s latest career incarnation could have been fodder for “Key & Peele,” the hit Comedy Central sketch show in which he and Keegan-Michael Key skewered modern racial issues. But Peele wrote had written a horror movie about race, and it needed a director. That created a challenge: After William Crain (“Blacula”), Bill Gunn (“Ganja & Hesse”), and Ernest Dickerson (“Bones,” “The Walking Dead”), how many black horror directors can you name? (The savviest genre fans out there might also remember James Bond III, very much a real person, who directed “Def By Temptation” 27 years ago.)

Needless to say, it was slim pickings. “I first pitched this as a movie no one would make,” Peele said. “About halfway through writing the script, I realized I was the only person who could direct it.”

However, Peele’s feature directing debut, “Get Out,” also brings him into the rarified class of horror directors »

Samantha Bee and Jason Jones: The Queen and King of TBS

21 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

While Samantha Bee and Jason Jones might not necessarily consider themselves the queen and king of TBS, the home of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee and The Detour, the fact that TV’s newest power couple has helped usher in a new era for the network is nothing to treat lightly.

Now in its second season, Full Frontal’s ratings have skyrocketed, with the audience doubling in size from the first season’s premiere to the second. Paired with Conan, the satirical news program has made TBS a formidable player in the late-night arena. Meanwhile, The Detour, the ribald -- Jones’ preferred adjective over “raunchy” -- family comedy which returns for season two on Tuesday, Feb. 21, led a 2016 slate of critically acclaimed comedies, including Angie Tribeca (which premiered ahead of The Detour), People of Earth, Wrecked and Search Party. All of the shows were renewed for a second season, while Angie Tribeca was renewed for a third »

A Daily Show White House Administration That Would 100% Work

20 February 2017 5:00 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

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 ShowThe Daily Show has always made it a

PopPolitics: Why Late Night Is Thriving in the Trump Era (Listen)

20 February 2017 4:58 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

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.”

The Center for Media and Public Affairs’ figures are of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” and “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah.”

Colbert’s ratings in particular have gotten a boost in »

Why Hollywood Awards Are Failing Independent TV

19 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Aymar Jean Christian is part of the inaugural class of Peabody Fellows, distinguished media scholars who provide fresh perspectives and commentary on behalf of the Peabody Media Center, the outreach and media production arm of the prestigious awards program based at the University of Georgia. He is an assistant professor of communication studies at Northwestern University.

You know you’re a TV nerd when your most anticipated awards announcements are the Writers Guild Awards. TV is a writer’s medium. Every TV fan awaits the Emmys, and some even bother to care about the Golden Globes, but most don’t know the major Guilds give out statues to television producers.

Nerdier still, I’m most interested in the nominees almost nobody writes about: web original short form comedies and dramas.

So while you probably could not imagine my disappointment when the WGA released their nominees for original short-form new media this year, »

‘Full Frontal With Samantha Bee’ Ratings Are Skyrocketing in the Trump Era

17 February 2017 12:23 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

While the effect of Donald Trump’s presidency on some late-night shows is still somewhat debatable, TBS’ “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” is most definitely seeing a big bump in its numbers in the new year.

Full Frontal” had been enjoying a slow but steady climb before the election in the 18-34 and 18-49 demographics, as well in total viewership: The series premiered on Feb. 8, 2016, to a total average audience of 914,000, an 18-49 audience of 453,000, and an 18-34 audience of 208,000 in Nielsen’s Live+7 ratings.

IFC Greenlights Scripted Comedy ‘Living With Yourself’ From ‘The Daily Show’ Producer

16 February 2017 2:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

IFC has ordered new scripted comedy “Living With Yourself” to series, Variety has learned.

The series comes from “The Daily Show” exec producer Tim Greenberg, who will write and executive produce. Jeff Blitz (“The Office,” “Parks and Recreation”) is attached to direct and executive produce alongside Greenberg and Anthony Bregman and Jeff Stern of Likely Story.

The story centers George Elliot, a man who is burned out and facing an impasse in both his personal and professional life. When George undergoes a novel treatment to become a better person, he finds he’s been replaced by a new and improved George — revealing that his own worst enemy is himself and raising the question, do we really want to be better?

“’Living With Yourself’ is a wonderfully unique, funny show that is both improbable and completely relatable at the same time, and it complements IFC’s slate of slightly off comedies that are created by and feature some »

Comedy Central Chief Kent Alterman on Trevor Noah, Viacom and Making Movies With Paramount

14 February 2017 5:14 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One day after CEO Bob Bakish announced his new strategic plan for Viacom, Comedy Central’s Kent Alterman — one of Bakish’s highest ranking employees — announced a new structure for the talent and development teams at the cable channel he oversees as president. Alterman obviously timed his announcement to pivot off of his boss’s, right?

“I’d like to say that I’m that thoughtful that I could plan things,” Alterman said. “It just kind of came together this way.”

Alterman is closing in on his one-year mark as president of Comedy Central. It’s been quite a year. Viacom has been roiled by turmoil, with longtime chairman Sumner Redstone’s daughter Shari Redstone seizing control of the company, forcing out CEO Philippe Dauman, flirting with merging the company with CBS, then backing off from that prospect and appointing longtime Viacom international TV executive Bakish CEO. Alterman’s boss Doug Herzog, who »

John Oliver Says White House Correspondents' Dinner is Frivolous (Video)

[[tmz:video id="0_u5rcaid3"]] John Oliver thinks the reporters are missing the boat in a big way by boycotting the White House Correspondents' Dinner for 2 reasons ... it's unproductive, and the dinner itself is ridiculous. We got Oliver outside of 30 Rock in NYC where hours earlier, his old boss, Jon Stewart, told our camera guy journos should attend since the dinner provides several scholarships.

Jon Stewart Jabs Donald Trump at Screening for Oscar-Nominated Documentary Short About Holocaust Survivor

13 February 2017 8:24 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Jon Stewart took the stage after a screening of the Oscar-nominated short film “Joe’s Violin” in New York on Monday, but Stewart quickly had the crowd in stitches — all at President Donald Trump’s expense.

“Joe’s Violin” tells the story of a 91-year-old Holocaust survivor who donates his violin to an instrument drive and later connects with the 12-year-old schoolgirl from the Bronx who receives it.

The improbable friendship between the Polish refugee Joe Feingold and Brianna Perez, whose family is from the Dominican Republic, feels especially timely in light of the Trump administration’s continued efforts to turn away refugees and crack down on immigrants entering the U.S.
