23 December 2014 10:29 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Youssef and his company ordered to pay $13m to CBC, which suspended al-Bernameg after show lampooned military leaders

A prominent Egyptian satirist and his production company have been fined $13m (£8.4m) over a dispute with a television channel which suspended his show after it lampooned military leaders, officials in Cairo has said.

Bassem Youssef, who is often compared to Us satirist Jon Stewart, moved al-Bernameg (The Programme) to Saudi-owned channel Mbc last year after it was pulled by the private Egyptian broadcaster CBC.

Al Jazeera America Marks Anniversary of Egypt Arrests with ‘Journalism Is Not a Crime’ Special

22 December 2014 11:35 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Al Jazeera America will mark the one-year anniversary of the arrest of three Al Jazeera journalists in Egypt with an hourlong special, “Journalism Is Not a Crime,” set to air Dec. 29.

Australian correspondent Peter Greste, Canadian-Egyptian bureau chief Mohamed Fahmy and Egyptian producer Baher Mohamed were detained in Egypt on Dec. 29, 2013, charged with spreading false news deemed damaging to the Egyptian state. Greste and Fahmy have since been sentenced to seven years in prison, with Mohamed sentenced to 10. The three will appear in court on Jan. 1 to appeal their sentences.

The special, to be hosted by primetime anchor John Seigenthaler, will address the dangers faced by journalists reporting from abroad, including the recent rise in reporter deaths and imprisonment. The victims’ stories will be discussed in depth, along with the stories of other journalists who have undergone similar hardships. The special will also feature commentary by Jon Stewart, Bob Simon, »

From the Ashes of Sony Hack, Momentum Grows for ‘Interview’ Release

22 December 2014 8:29 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

On the heels of a devastating blow to American pride and Hollywood’s status, momentum is growing to release the cancelled movie “The Interview” somehow.

An interesting thing has happened since the White House pronounced late last week that Sony had made a mistake in cancelling the controversial Seth Rogen-James Franco comedy, and Sony pronouncing that it had no choice but to cancel. Voices from across the political spectrum, from Hollywood and beyond – and now including the studio itself – have been calling for a method to release the movie.

Pundits and celebrities have led a steady drumbeat on »

The Colbert Report

19 December 2014 7:19 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Network: Comedy Central

Episodes: 1,447 (half-hour)

Seasons: Nine

TV show dates: October 17, 2005 -- December 18, 2014

Series status: Ended

Performers include: Stephen Colbert (host)

TV show description:

The popularity and success of Stephen Colbert's segments on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart inspired this spin-off and counterpart of the hit satirical news program. On this parody of conservative news shows like The O'Reilly Factor, Colbert portrays a right-wing caricature of current political pundits and critiques both politics and the media.

The program opens with teasers for the episode and then Colbert runs through the daily headlines. Each show focuses on a topic which is discussed in the segment called "The WØRD." As Colbert delivers his commentary, a bullet-point summary appears alongside on screen but the text usually ironically undermines the »

‘Colbert Report’ Finale Scores Series High in Viewers

19 December 2014 2:56 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Stephen Colbert officially got a proper send-off — at least per the Nielsen sheets.

Also Read: Emmy Winners: Bryan Cranston, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Aaron Paul, Allison Janney (Photos)

The finale of “The Colbert Report” set a series record high with 2.5 million total viewers on Thursday. The goodbye show, which was heavily star-studded, appeared to have nearly as many people singing along on stage as it apparently did watching along at home.

The half-hour series closer topped Colbert’s previous high from Oct. 29, 2008, when he pulled in 2.4 million total viewers. That show was boosted by lead-in “The Daily Show,” which welcomed President Barack Obama as guest. »

Five Burning Business Questions for the New Stephen Colbert

19 December 2014 2:17 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stephen Colbert looked like he enjoyed his Comedy Central curtain call last night, which is good — because he’s got a hell of an encore in the wings.

Colbert, known for his spoofish portrayal of a bloviating political commentator on his “Colbert Report” for the past nine years, now must tackle an even more demanding performance. He will take the chair on CBS’ “The Late Show,” one of three be-all-to-everyone latenight programs set on the nation’s most-watched broadcast networks.

That move raises some questions. Sure, Colbert has been on other series, like “The Daily Show,” “The Dana Carvey Show,” “Strangers With Candy” and the early Comedy Central sketch-comedy effort “Exit 57,” but these were all in the satirical-comedy vein. “The Late Show” is a broad-skewing production that CBS is counting on to bring in more revenue — it will take ownership of the program, which has been the property of »

19 December 2014 1:55 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Written by Aireka Muse and directed by Dax Brooks, "Tap Shoes & Violins" is a romantic comedy that sounds like it could be pulled directly from Craigslist's Missed Connections, about "what happens when two people feel like they have met someone special but realize a moment too late." The upcoming short film stars Jessica Williams of "The Daily Show" fame along with Michael McCusker, Shannon Kane and "Dear White People's" Brandon Bell.  From the film's website:  Both Charlie and Scott often feel out of place but during a brief encounter at their favorite coffee shop they feel as if they might have just met someone special.

Stephen Colbert's 5 Best Moments on The Colbert Report (Videos)

19 December 2014 11:15 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After nearly 10 years on the air, The Colbert Report ended its run Thursday with a star-studded farewell for its host, Stephen Colbert. (Or "Stephen Colbert," as it were.) Colbert didn't break character for a moment on the series finale. For those hoping for a heartwarming farewell speech, you were out of luck. However, his send-off was still plenty emotional. As his former boss Jon Stewart joined him onstage, the two began a rousing rendition of "We'll Meet Again," joined by James Franco, George Lucas, Bryan Cranston, Elijah Wood, Patrick Stewart, Big Bird and many, many more.

Last Night’s Colbert Report Finale Was the Perfect Sendoff to the Wacky, Beloved Show

19 December 2014 10:45 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Last night was the series finale of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, and as was to be expected, it was a can’t-miss event filled with celebrity cameos from the likes of Jon Stewart, James Franco, and even Santa Claus himself. Although Colbert began the final episode of his show discussing Syria, the “news” segment of the finale episode didn’t last very long and was quickly followed by one last edition of Cheating Death with Stephen Colbert in which the host actually killed Death himself, the Grim Reaper. It was weird, wacky, and totally insane; put simply, it was everything I loved about The Colbert Report during its run. Like The Daily Show, which airs a half-an-hour before it at 11 p.m., The Colbert Report used humor to comment on the political issues facing our country at the moment and the, most of the time, idiotic ways that cable news covers these topics. »

Jon Stewart Has the Best Time Interviewing Chris Rock

19 December 2014 7:55 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Last night must've been tough for Jon Stewart, what with his old friend Stephen Colbert leaving him. Good thing he got to spend The Daily Show with another old friend, Chris Rock. Rock continues the trend of Stewart's former stand-up buddies making the best guests. Rock also does God's work of finally being the one to call out Stewart for his incessant placement in the ads for Book of Mormon.  »

‘Stephen Colbert’ Has Always Been Immortal. We Only Just Realized It Last Night

19 December 2014 7:45 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

And now we ride the circus wheel With your dark brother wrapped in white Says it was good to be alive But now he rides a comet's flame And won't be coming back again The Earth looks better from a star That's right above from where you are He didn't mean to make you cry —Neutral Milk Hotel, "Holland, 1945" After The Colbert Report ended, after those joyously weird 30 minutes of television came to a close, I thought about what viewers expected and wanted from the show's finale. What was the fundamental question people needed answered? And the answer was immediately obvious: Who is Stephen Colbert, and who is "Stephen Colbert"? Colbert must have been aware of this, as he ended the show with a revealing 2010 outtake. Jon Stewart, having just finished The Daily Show, tosses to Colbert, who is talking through a tiny gorilla head. It's silly »

After nine years on his own show, and even longer as a correspondent on “The Daily Show,” Stephen Colbert finally bid farewell to his conservative pundit alter ego in the final episode of “The Colbert Report” Thursday night on Comedy Central.

“If this is your first time tuning in to ‘The Colbert Report,’ I have some terrible news,” he said. “This is in fact your last time tuning in to ‘The Colbert Report.'”

It was a star-studded farewell for the long-time host when Colbert broke into a goodbye song. He was joined on-stage by many of his favorite past guests including Jon Stewart, »

18 December 2014 12:40 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If you call Jay Z a "former crack dealer" when you introduce a political story about him, there's a good chance you'll get the Jon Stewart treatment. On Wednesday's episode of The Daily Show, the host slammed Fox NewsSean Hannity over the way he teased a video segment about New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Dec. 10 meeting with the hip-hop star, producer, founder of entertainment company Roc Nation and husband of Beyoncé.
