'Reunion' starts strong for Fox

12 September 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Fox got its new Thursday lineup off to a credible start last week with the return of The O.C. and the debut of its 9 p.m. drama Reunion, but ABC ran away with the night with its NFL kickoff game between the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots. Friday's primetime landscape was dominated by the hourlong Shelter from the Storm: A Concert for the Gulf Coast, which aired commercial-free in roadblock fashion at 8 p.m. on more than two dozen broadcast and cable outlets. Viewership estimates for the telethon special are expected to be released today by Nielsen Media Research. NBC followed the Shelter telecast with a two-hour Dateline NBC, which averaged 6.7 million viewers and a 2.1 rating/7 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. That was strong enough to overshadow the season opener of ABC's 10 p.m. newsmagazine 20/20 (6.1 million, 1.7/5). »

Blake Weeps in Court

16 February 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Robert Blake was escorted from his murder trial at Van Nuys, California court on Monday, after breaking down in tears at the sound of his own voice. The prosecution wrapped up their case against the former Baretta star by playing jurors a jailhouse interview the actor recorded with TV interviewer Barbara Walters which aired on US news show 20/20 in February 2003, and audio recordings of Blake talking with an unnamed visitor while he was in jail. Blake broke down after he heard himself saying, "What the f**k are they going to do to me? God's been on my shoulder since I was born. God's been on my shoulder since Rosie (his daughter) was born. When this s**t is over, no matter what happens, they're going to be all right financially. Rosie is safe. Those monsters will never get her." Deputy District Attorney Shellie Samuels argued "monsters" was a direct reference to Blake's late wife Bonny Lee Bakley's family. Blake was removed from the courtroom by his concerned legal team, but his distress could be heard down the hallway. He later returned looking calm and composed. The 71-year-old is charged with shooting Bakley on May 4, 2001 as she sat in a car near their favorite restaurant. »

Feldman: "Jackson Threatened My Life"

14 February 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Child actor Corey Feldman has revealed his former pal Michael Jackson once threatened his life because he thought The Goonies star was planning to reveal all about their friendship. Feldman taped an interview with British investigative reporter Martin Bashir just before he was called as a prosecution witness in Jackson's child molestation trial and told the journalist his friendship with the King of Pop ended badly on the eve of the terrorist attacks on New York in 2001. The actor was among the celebrities attending Jackson's star-studded anniversary concert in New York and was shocked by a brief chat he had with his friend backstage. In the Bashir interview, which was featured on US news show 20/20 on Friday night, Feldman recalled, "Michael had some paranoid delusion that I had some ill-fated intentions to write some sort of book about him, which was categorically untrue. What happened next was basically, the way I perceived it, is that he threatened my life." Jackson refused to transport Feldman out of New York on his tour bus the following day, after terrorist planes had hit the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Feldman is scheduled to testify against his former friend on March 15. »

Feldman To Be Prosecution Witness in Jackson Trial

11 February 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former child star Corey Feldman will be called as a prosecution witness in Michael Jackson's child molestation trial - after he expressed concerns about his own childhood friendship with the Thriller star in a TV interview. The 33-year-old, who has been unwavering in his support of Jackson until recently, says in an upcoming interview with American TV show 20/20, that he's come to a "sickening realization" about his friendship with the 46-year-old singer. Feldman became friends with Jackson after finding fame in movies including Stand By Me and The Lost Boys, but they reportedly fell out in the aftermath of September 11, when Jackson refused to let Feldman onto his bus leaving New York. In 1993, when Jackson stood accused of molesting another young boy, 22-year-old Feldman told police, "Nothing ever happened with Michael and me." But his perception of events has since changed, and he will take the stand to give evidence against his former friend later this year. »

News Show Uncovers Corey Feldman's 1993 Jackson Interview

10 February 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

American news show Celebrity Justice has scooped British journalist Martin Bashir by uncovering a 1993 interview actor Corey Feldman gave cops about his friendship with Michael Jackson. Feldman agreed to reveal all about his relationship with Jackson in an interview with Bashir for American news magazine show 20/20 but two days before that airs, Celebrity Justice reporters have tracked down a police interview he gave over a decade ago. Sources for 20/20 claim Feldman suggests he has had a "sickening realization" that his friendship with the King of Pop wasn't as harmless as he first thought in his interview, which will air tomorrow night. But in the 1993 interview, the former child star, then 22, only wanted to defend his friend as Jackson faced child molestation charges. In the 1993 police interview Feldman reveals, "Nothing ever happened with Michael and me. Believe me, if there was something that I'd been hiding for all these years, then I would want nothing more than to bring it out right now, to make sure that Michael got the help that he needed... Nothing happened. He never did anything out of line. I mean, the closest he ever came to touching me was maybe slapping me on the leg once to talk about that I had lost weight." The Stand By Me star also reveals he and Jackson once checked into a hotel room together but the pop star insisted on sleeping on a "cot" while his young friend, then a teenager, took the bed. The most revealing part of the interview comes as Feldman reveals he once took a Jacuzzi with Jackson, but he insists, "We talked, nothing happened." When investigators ask, "What were you guys wearing? Bathing suits?" Feldman replies, "Yeah, he had an extra pair of trunks that he threw me and he was wearing his bathing suit." The actor ends the interview by telling unimpressed investigators that he was molested as a child - but not by Jackson. He says, "I myself was molested so I know what it's like to go through those feelings." »

Feldman Questions His Friendship with Jackson

9 February 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Corey Feldman has expressed concern about his own childhood friendship with troubled pop superstar Michael Jackson. Feldman, who has been supportive of Jackson until recently, says in an upcoming interview with American TV show 20/20, that he's come to a "sickening realization" about his friendship with the 46-year-old Bad singer. The former child star, now 33, says, "I started looking at each piece of information, and with that came this sickening realization that there may have been many occurrences in my life and in my relationship to Michael that have created a question of doubt." The interview was conducted by British journalist Martin Bashir, whose television documentary on Jackson helped give rise to the current abuse case against the star. Feldman says Jackson's sex-abuse trial, in which the singer is charged with molesting a 13-year-old boy, led him to reexamine his past relationship with Jackson. »
