Well @realDonaldTrump, from one Republican to another, this is a disaster. You made a promise to protect the Lgbtq community. Call me. pic.twitter.com/XwYe0LNUOq - Caitlyn Jenner (@Caitlyn_Jenner) February 24, 2017 In the months leading up to America's decision to elect the host of NBC's The Apprentice (seasons one-14) as President of the United States of America, one of his most outspoken supporters was reality star and staunch Republican Caitlyn Jenner. As a transgender woman, her support for the conservative party - which openly seeks to abolish the rights of the Lgbtq community - was a shock, but she insisted her support for the Gop was due to her economic beliefs. Although she once called Hillary Clinton "a f*cking liar" and happily attended the presidential inauguration in January, it seems her opinion might be starting to change. In a video she shared to Twitter on Thursday, the »

Nobody would know better than NBC that former The Apprentice star-turned-President Donald Trump is happiest when he's told his ratings are huge, his show is No. 1, and he's the fairest of them all. The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon says that practice continues at the White House, where Trump’s staff is going to great lengths to show him good news from the media. This, however, is becoming increasingly difficult, Fallon acknowledged. They did, however, come up with… »
If you’ve ever heard the term “Hollywood elite” used as an insult, it likely came from a Republican politician. George Clooney takes issue with that characterization in a new Canal+ interview, noting that Donald Trump and his advisor Steve Bannon fit the term as well as anyone. “Donald Trump has 22 acting credits,” the actor says. “He collects $120,000 a year in his Screen Actors Guild pension fund. He is a Hollywood elitist.”

Trump has made a number of cameos in movies and television shows dating back decades, increasing his profile further with “The Apprentice” and “The Celebrity Apprentice.” Bannon, meanwhile, has produced a number of films of his own — and unsuccessfully tried to make several more. “Steve Bannon is a failed film writer,” Clooney says of former Breitbart editor, whose unrealized projects include a Shakespearean rap movie about the L. »

George Clooney has a counter-argument for those who believe celebrities shouldn’t speak out about politics — that President Donald Trump and chief strategist Steve Bannon are also members of the so-called Hollywood elite.
In a recent interview with French news network Canal+ ahead of the Caesar Awards — France’s equivalent of the Oscars, where he’s set to receive an honorary award — Clooney pointed out the hypocrisy of Trump denouncing Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech earlier this year, in which she called out the president for mocking a reporter »

“This Is Us” is killing it over on NBC, but not all first-season series can make such a claim. As a matter of fact, a number of them are performing very, very poorly. TheWrap has mapped out the 10 lowest-rated freshman Big 4 broadcast television shows, ranking them by their lackluster Nielsen numbers. All ratings in this story come from the key 18-49 demographic, and include a week of delayed viewing where available.

Were you thrilled or disappointed in the films this year? In an effort to sum up the themes of the last 12 months of cinema, we posed three questions to a panel of Variety critics and pundits.
1. How do you rate the 2016 slate against those of previous years?
2. What was the biggest scandal or most-talked-about issue of the year?
3. What aspect of film this year made you stand up and cheer?
Not surprising, there was wild variation among their answers. There were highs (“Moonlight”) and lows (the Nate Parker fiasco). Also not surprising: Politics were a big part of the conversation. Here’s how our panel weighed in.

1. On the whole, 2016 had more than its share of disappointments: unusually soul-crushing sequels, middling attempted Oscar-bait, and some head-scratching misfires from typically reliable directors.
But any year in which moviegoers are treated to a genuine masterpiece from artists »

George Clooney has a response to people who think celebrities shouldn’t talk politics, citing Donald Trump’s hypocrisy in denouncing Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech earlier this year. “When Meryl spoke, everyone on that one side was, ‘Well that’s elitist Hollywood speaking,'” Clooney said in an interview with the French news network Canal+. “Donald Trump has 22 acting credits in television… He collects $120,000 a year in his Screen Actors Guild pension fund. He is a Hollywood elitist.” Previous to his run for president, Trump was the host of NBC’s “The Apprentice” and “The Celebrity Apprentice.” He »

Less than four months after taking a sledgehammer to then-candidate Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Jamie Otis was sentenced today – and justice was not as rough on the admitted vandal as he was on the ex-Celebrity Apprentice host's five-tipped honor. Facing a maximum of three years in jail and $10,000 in fines, Otis pleaded no contest in L.A. Superior Court on Tuesday and got no time behind bars at all. Instead, the 53-year-old self-described activist… »
ABC’s “The Bachelor” brought in the biggest numbers by far in every measure Monday night. The stalwart reality series drew a 2.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and an average audience of 7.88 million viewers over its two hours, cleaning everyone’s clocks. “Quantico” followed with a 0.7 and 2.57 million viewers.
On CBS, “Kevin Can Wait” brought in a 1.4 in the demo and 7.29 million viewers. “Man With a Plan” came in with a 1.3 and 6.69 million viewers. “Superior Donuts” ticked down to a 1.2 and 6.68 million viewers. “2 Broke Girls” held at a 1.2 and 5.78 million viewers. “Scorpion” brought in a 1.2 and 7.14 million viewers.
NBC’s “Timeless” finished out its first season with a 0.9 in the demo and 3.34 million viewers, up from last week’s nadir of a 0.7. A special “American Ninja Warrior: All Stars” filled the void between “The New Celebrity Apprentice” and “The Voice” with a 1.4 in the demo and 5.19 million viewers.

Who says you can’t go home? Not “The Bachelor.” The ABC reality dating show scored season highs with its hometown dates round on Monday. NBC enjoyed a nice boost from an “American Ninja Warrior: All-Stars” special, which fared far better than last week’s soft “Celebrity Apprentice” season finale. The broadcaster tied CBS for second place in the key 18-49 demo. The Leslie Moonves-led network finished first in total viewers throughout primetime. ABC was first in ratings with a 1.9 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 6.1 million, according to preliminary numbers. »

What a difference a week makes.
After saying goodbye to the low-rated new season of The Celebrity Apprentice, NBC got a boost from its (temporary) time slot replacement. A two-hour American Ninja Warrior: All Stars special drew a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49 — besting Celebrity Apprentice's entire run with new host Arnold Schwarzenegger, which wrapped the most recent season with a 0.9 rating.
With the help of a stronger lead-in, Timeless rose two-tenths for its first-season finale (0.9 adults).
ABC was once again victorious thanks to The Bachelor (2.5 adults), which was followed by an even showing of Quantico (0.7 adults).

Making a special occasion of an everyday occurrence, the Twitterverse took extra care to let President Donald Trump know that it is not pleased with him on Monday, Presidents Day. “Throughout our 100 years of existence we have held every president accountable,” the Aclu tweeted. “Happy Presidents’ Day.” While many others are taking to Twitter to simply tweet Trump’s “The Apprentice” signature phrase — “You’re fired” — at him.

President Trump’s steady stream of attacks on CNN’s credibility has not hurt the news organization’s reputation in the minds of consumers, nor has it scared away any advertisers. That was the word from CNN president Jeff Zucker and top Turner execs Thursday at a state-of-the-company luncheon presentation in Manhattan.
Zucker said CNN conducted its largest-ever brand survey last month out of a desire to gauge whether Trump’s broadsides about CNN serving up “fake news” were having a lasting impact on prospective viewers.
“There has been no diminution whatsoever in the CNN brand,” Zucker said. “It’s as strong as it’s ever been. It’s incredibly trusted and we see no impact whatsoever in all of those attacks on the CNN brand.”
Turner president David Levy said there have been no advertiser pullouts, either. CNN has seen its ad revenue spike along with ratings as the public continues to remain heavily engaged in »

“This Is Us” may have slipped a bit from last week with some of its audience out celebrating Valentine’s Day, but the freshman hit drama still carried NBC to its seventh straight Tuesday win among adults 18-49. CBS won in total viewers once more, something it’s accomplished on the weeknight pretty much all season long. ABC and Fox fell in line behind those two broadcast nets.

It’s been nearly a month since the National Day of Patriotic Devotion, and the nation still can’t believe that the host of “The Apprentice” is the President of the country. Even while many worry about the current state of the affairs with Donald Trump behind the desk at the Oval Office, many are also looking back across the past year or so and wondering where the hell it all went wrong.

According to the Washington Post, Manigault, a former contestant on Donald Trump’s “The Apprentice” and current White House communications official, got into an argument with Ryan that included the threat of a “dossier” of potentially damaging information that the administration was keeping on journalists.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first run as host of the “New Celebrity Apprentice” is likely to be his last — and whoever famously said “the show must go on” almost certainly wasn’t talking about this one. The post-Donald Trump era of NBC’s job interview competition was pretty much a dog from Day 1 in terms of Nielsen numbers versus expectations. By Day 8 — a.k.a. Week 2 — it was a dog with fleas, to steal a phrase from Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) in “Wall Street.” The revived version’s TV ratings would continue to get worse from there, a trend that lasted all the. »
