10 Iconic Pop Songs Hilariously Covered By Metal Bands

22 April 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

vimeo

Heavy metal and pop music could not be further apart if there was ever a scale to describe musical genres.

One; a mainly corporately-created genre filled with beautiful people that don’t have to have as much talent as they must have the skills to oversell themselves to the masses. The other; an overly loud sub-species of hard rock driven by a cacophony of sounds and the ability to play hard with a tendency to be a little more than melodramatic. It is the literal definition of chalk and cheese.

So when people hear of metal bands – especially those of the more extreme variety doing covers of iconic pop songs – the masses (with special regards to the older generation) may tend to respond with a roll of the eyes and a huge sigh, as they ponder the days when heavy metal meant something.

But the funny thing that shocks »

Warren United comes to ITV4: Why is adult animation absent from UK TV?

22 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Tonight (Tuesday, April 22) sees that rarest of beasts get an outing on ITV4 - a British animated series aimed exclusively at adults.

Warren United - co-created by Men Behaving Badly's Simon Nye and featuring the voice of BAFTA winner Darren Boyd - is a new animated sitcom about family, football and the passion of being a fan.

"While Warren United focuses on a bloke who's crazy about football, it's really about passion," said co-executive producer Henry Normal. "Football's about human stories - we've tried to capture that."

The first of six Warren United episodes airs tonight at 9pm, but could the series be at the forefront of an animation revolution in the UK?

On April 1, a new tax break for the UK animation industry went into effect, with many predicting a boost for UK-based production - but will that be enough to reverse the long-floundering fortunes of adult animation in Great Britain? »

CBS Wins Sunday as Hallmark Hall of Fame Movie Soft for ABC

21 April 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Hallmark Hall of Fame franchise remains a shadow of its former self, with Sunday’s premiere of “In My Dreams” drawing tiny numbers for ABC while providing an opening for NBC’s “Believe” to show some gains. CBS won the night with its regular lineup, led in demos by “The Amazing Race” and in total viewers by “The Good Wife.”

On an Easter Sunday when ABC preempted “Resurrection” for the Hallmark movie, NBC’s “Believe” averaged a 1.2 rating/3 share in adults 18-49 and 4.7 million viewers overall — winning head to head over “In My Dreams,” which averaged a 1.0/3 in 18-49 and 4.6 million viewers overall for its two hours. While still not good numbers for “Believe,” last night’s demo rating was up 20% (0.2) from the previous week when it faced “Resurrection” on ABC and at a four-week high; “Resurrection” and “Believe” are not that dissimilar in theme, so it makes sense »

TV Ratings: 'Amazing Race,' 'Good Wife' lead Sunday while 'Believe' and 'Cosmos' rise

21 April 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Sunday, April 20, 2014. On a sluggish Easter Sunday, "The Amazing Race" helped CBS claim victory among young viewers, while "Good Wife" led the network to its usual overall victory. Even though it was down week-to-week, ABC's "Once Upon a Time" was actually Sunday's top show in the key demographic, but Hallmark continued not to be a successful brand for ABC, as "In My Dreams" was the network's latest Hall of Fame flop. "In My Dreams" took the place of spring success "Resurrection" and the lack of 9 p.m. hour competition helped both Fox's "Cosmos" and NBC's "Believe" post week-to-week gains. Note that this was the rare Sunday without any sports overrun for CBS, which gives the rare opportunity to look at the semi-actual numbers for the network's Sunday shows. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 1.4 rating for Sunday night, beating ABC's 1.1 rating in the key demographic. »

A Haunted House 2 review

21 April 2014 12:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Ron Hogan 21 Apr 2014 - 16:05

Marlon Wayans is back with another spoof of the horror genre, but it's one that's really, really not worth your time...

Just when you thought it was safe to go back onto movie theaters, Marlon Wayans is back and taking aim at the horror genre yet again with yet another spoof movie. Malcolm Johnson (Marlon Wayans) survived the events of A Haunted House, and a year after the possession of Kisha (Essence Adkins), he's found a new girlfriend named Megan (Jaime Pressly) and he's moved into a fancy new house in the suburbs with Megan's children Becky (Ashley Rickards) and Wyatt (Steele Stebbins).

As it turns out, you can't kill your problems in a car wreck, even if your problem is a possessed woman. Malcolm moves into his new house and the problems immediately start. There's a creepy doll, a box that drives Becky insane, »

Fox dumping Animation Domination from Saturday nights

17 April 2014 2:14 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Animation is ending its domination of Fox’s Saturday nights.

The broadcaster is dumping its experimental animated block. Fox first told its affiliates a couple weeks ago that Animation Domination HD will have its last airing on June 28, according to Broadcasting & Cable and confirmed to EW by Fox.

B&C also reported that affiliates are not sorry to hear the block is going away. In addition to under-performing in the ratings, some stations have apparently received complaints about the risque content of the programming, which targeted young male viewers with Adult Swim-like content.

Fox's 'X rated' Easter Bunny online video draws protest: Want to see it?

16 April 2014 10:56 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Fox’s Nsfw Easter cartoon is drawing some holiday heat. The animated short on the network’s Animation Domination High-Def (Adhd) online channel is a raunchy (and quite catchy) music video titled “The Easter Bunny’s Coming” (video below).

The Parents Television Council, an independent watchdog group that monitors network programming and frequently protests content, called the video “X rated” and crowned it “the most explicit material we’ve ever seen produced by a broadcast television network.”

“We thought we had seen the worst of ‘Adhd’ when Fox aired a segment several months ago with high school characters gleefully taking »

Watch: New TV Spots For '22 Jump Street' & 'A Million Ways To Die In The West' Plus New Pics

14 April 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So in case you were living under a rock this weekend or better yet, you were consuming a lot of great HBO, you might have realized the MTV Movie Awards took place (“The Hunger Games” won a bunch of shit, just like the “Twilight” movies before it). That means every studio and their mother released some kind of new clip or TV Spot and we have a few more stragglers today. What do you do if your first writer/directorial effort is a smash hit? Well, if you’re comedian and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, you use the success of “Ted” and parlay it into the cachet of doing a western. And a western comedy, no less. I can just see the execs at Universal trying to agonizingly squeeze amused looks in their faces during the pitch. A western comedy? It sounds like a recipe for box-office poison, but »

14 April 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

TV ratings for Sunday, April 13th are in, though CBS’ early numbers aren’t helpful since the programming suffered a delay due to The Masters tournament.  Here’s a brief rundown: Fox’s Family Guy scored the night’s highest ratings in the 18-49 demo with a 2.1 rating and 4.28 million viewers, though it was down 9% from last week’s episode.  Elsewhere on the network, Bob’s Burgers fell 11% to a 0.8 rating and 1.89 million viewers, American Dad dropped 8% to a 1.1 rating and 2.33 million viewers, The Simpsons dipped 16% to a 1.6 rating and 3.59 million viewers, and the excellent Cosmos notched a 1.2 rating and 3.5 million viewers for a drop of 20%.

Ratings Rat Race: ‘Cosmos’, ‘Once Upon A Time’ & ‘Dateline’ Fall, ‘Crisis’ Up, ‘Resurrection’ Dips

14 April 2014 9:23 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

There was a lot of competition from cable last night with the return of AMC‘s Mad Men, Showtime’s Californication and Nurse Jackie and Week 2 of the latest season of Game Of Thrones, plus Silicon Valley and Veep on HBO. However the networks weren’t letting down their game with a slate of originals from everyone. Still, lmost everyone was down in adults 18-49 from last week. Fox started the night with its usual animation block of Bob’s Burgers (0.8/3) and American Dad (1.1/4). The two ‘toons were down 11% and 8%, respectively, from their April 6 airings. They were followed by The Simpsons (1.6/5) and Family Guy (2.1/6), which fell 16% and 9% respectively. However, the latter was the highest-rated show on primetime last night. The biggest blow of the night for Fox was for Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey (1.2/3). Up against GoT and more, the sixth episode of the Neil deGrasse Tyson-hosted series took »

‘Family Guy,’ ‘Resurrection’ Earn Top Demo Scores But CBS Wins Sunday

14 April 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS, led by “60 Minutes” and “The Amazing Race” but also getting a boost from the end of The Masters golf tournament, has captured another Sunday in key demos. Fox’s “Family Guy” and ABC’s “Resurrection” were the top broadcasts in young adults, though both were down from the previous week on a night that saw most broadcast programs on the decline.

The Eye’s program averages are subject to revision due to a 12-minute golf overrun, but in preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “60 Minutes” opened the night for CBS with a timeslot-leading 1.8 rating/6 share in adults 18-49 while drawing more total viewers than any other program on the night (11.1 million). It was followed by “The Amazing Race” (1.7/5 in 18-49, 9.0 million viewers overall), which led its hour in 25-54 (x.x/), “The Good Wife” (1.5/4 in 18-49, 9.7 million viewers overall) and “The Mentalist” (1.5/4 in 18-49, 9.1 million viewers overall).

TV Ratings: Masters overrun, '60 Minutes' lead CBS Sunday while 'Once' and 'Cosmos' dip

14 April 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Sunday, April 13, 2014. With 11 minutes of Masters coverage overrun and a Pope Francis-centric installment of "60 Minutes," CBS' Sunday primetime got off to a strong start and then the network cruised to an easy overall win and a tight victory in the key demographic.  A down week for "Once Upon a Time" pushed ABC to second in the key demo, leaving the network to take some solace in the smallest "Resurrection" drops to date.  Speaking of declines, Fox's full lineup from "Bob's Burgers" through to "Cosmos" was down.  NBC had slightly better news with week-to-week bumps for both "American Dream Builders" and "Crisis" and stability for "Believe," not that any of those numbers were actually especially good. [As usual, ratings for cable offerings including the MTV Movie Awards and the "Mad Men" premiere will be available later in the day.] On to Sunday's ratings... Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 1.7 rating for Sunday primetime, edging out ABC's 1.6 rating in the key demographic. Fox was third with a 1.3 key demo rating, followed by NBC's 0.9 key demo rating. »
