Yas Girl of the Week: Amanda Seales

7 November 2014 10:30 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Former Best Week Ever star Amanda Seales made waves this week when a video of her giving the business about catcalling on CNN went viral. The video has gained traction largely in part to Amanda’s witty come-backs and mystified faces of disgust towards her misogynistic male counterpart on the show.

This comedian should win an award for remaining so cool and collected during the segment, especially when her male counterpart suggests she “buy a gun” if she wants to be safe against street harassers. Our hats off to Amanda for keeping it real and putting him in his place! Yas girl!

Yas to @AmandaSeales for standing up for women’s rights! Here’s to you being our #YASGirl of the week!

Dirty Jobs' Mike Rowe Promises No Scripts, Passionate People and 'Oyster Orgies' in New CNN Series

7 October 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

After seven years of rolling around in the muck, Dirty JobsMike Rowe is cleaning up his act.

His new gig, CNN’s Somebody’s Gotta Do It, is decidedly less messy than his popular Discovery Channel series, which was cancelled in 2012. But the spirit is the same: The first episode — which airs Wednesday at 9/8c — manages to squeeze Rowe into a wetsuit and dangle him 30 feet from a Vegas theater’s ceiling to illustrate a former stagehand’s passion for production.

The hour-long premiere also includes a visit to a Missouri hair museum; the second episode introduces a man »

'Dating Naked' premiere reveals small ratings

18 July 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

VH1′s Dating Naked premiere ratings are here. And while the show isn’t a total bust, the debut numbers fall short of the hype.

The premiere episode of headline-making reality series had a modest 826,000 viewers. By comparison, most of the network’s original series averaged at least a million viewers, with the top six all averaging more than 2 million (the network’s most-watched series this year, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, averaged 3.5 million viewers, while the network’s least-watched, the short-live revival of Best Week Ever, averaged 226,000 viewers).

VH1 points out this performance is better than the show’s time period average. »

Joan Rivers Bolts From CNN Interview: 'You Are Not the One to Interview a Person Who Does Humor!'

5 July 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

What beats a CNN interview in terms of scoring publicity for your new book? How about a moment of raging indignation followed by a dramatic early exit from a CNN interview?

That seemed to be the prevailing wisdom today when a cantankerous Joan Rivers lost her patience with flighty interviewer Fredricka Whitfield’s line of questioning about whether the 81-year-old comic’s brand of humor ever crosses a line into cruelty.

“You really think Nicki Minaj cares I didn’t like her dress?” Rivers huffed when Whitfield noted that her guest’s work on E!’s Fashion Police is “very mean in some ways. »

“Community” Campaigns for Sixth Season, HBO Adapting J.K. Rowling’s “Casual Vacancy” and “Big Bang Theory” Aims For Ten

24 April 2014 4:42 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

In a surprising development for streaming video, Amazon Prime has obtained the rights to HBO shows. Don’t cancel your cable subscription just yet, the deal only covers older HBO shows, plus Girls and Veep episodes that are more than three years old. Still, the news is a pretty big deal. Netflix has long had older episodes of Showtime’s series (and now Hulu has a few shows), but HBO has resisted letting its shows appear anywhere but HBO Go. Game of Thrones and True Detective as well as Sex and the City (which airs in syndication) aren’t included.

Recently, CBS renewed The Big Bang Theory for three seasons, which would take it to season ten. Showrunner Steve Molaro tells The Hollywood Reporter that, for now at least, he’s approaching that tenth season as the final one, which would give the show a Friends-sized run.
