Republicans vs. Democrats TV: Lefties want comedy, right wingers like work -- Exclusive

6 December 2011 8:40 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Republicans don’t watch MTV’s Jersey Shore. But they dig ABC’s Castle.

Democrats don’t like Discovery’s Deadliest Catch. But they swoon for NBC’s Parks and Recreation.

Those are a few of the findings from an annual research survey by Experian-Simmons that measures the consumer preferences of various political ideologies. In a report prepared exclusively for EW, the company calculated some of the favorite — and least favorite — TV shows of political partisans. (Specifically: the report measures which shows among the survey group were watched by the highest concentration of self-identified “Liberal Democrats” and “Conservative Republicans.”)

Discovery Renews Licensing Deal With Netflix For Two Years

21 September 2011 4:35 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The joint-venture channels — Own with Oprah Winfrey, and The Hub with Hasbro — aren’t included. What’s more, “there is not any specific content that Netflix is entitled to,” Discovery Communications CEO David Zaslav told investors this morning at Goldman Sachs’ Communacopia Conference. He wouldn’t talk about the economics of the deal but says that they will “become apparent” the next time the company reports its quarterly earnings. He adds that while “we don’t know what’s going to happen with Netflix” — which is grappling with consumer fury after it raised prices 60% for those who want to stream video and rent DVDs –”right now we think that will not create an issue for us.” Here’s the release about Discovery’s new Netflix agreement: Los Gatos, Calif. and Silver Spring, Md. — Netflix, Inc. and Discovery Communications today announced a two-year non-exclusive licensing agreement that allows Netflix members to »

Grylls' Young Son Rescues Friend

5 August 2011 9:06 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Survival expert Bear Grylls' son proved he's following in the TV adventurer's footsteps after rescuing a friend who fell into a river.

The Man Vs. Wild star's seven-year-old son Jesse managed to pull the little girl out of the water and drag her to safety.

Grylls explains, "They (the children) were in a little base in a stream and she fell in. And - I wasn't there, you know, and the story grows and grows every time he tells me - but he did rescue her and he was proud as punch to have dragged her out."

But Grylls, who is also dad to sons Marmaduke, five, and four-year-old Huckleberry, admits he has tried to hide his career as an adventurer from his boys.

He adds, "For a long time, I never wanted them to be too aware of what I do. I relaxed that when all their friends were talking about me in the playground, and they were the only ones not to have seen the programme. But getting the balance right is hard.

"Do I want them to grow up to be me? No, actually. I'm unemployable in the real world. I don't want that for them...

"Their headmaster took me aside and said, 'It's great that they might know how to take the door off a helicopter and deal with a snake bite, but it would be really great if they focused a little more on the mathematics.'" »

Jake Returns Home Following His Dad's Romantic Hawaiian Wedding

27 July 2011 11:04 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jake Gyllenhaal dropped by a friend's house outside La yesterday in a perfectly fitted tee. He's back on the West Coast following a quick trip to Hawaii over the weekend. Jake and his sister, Maggie, joined their father, Stephen Gyllenhaal, and Kathleen Man at their Oahu wedding. Jake's brother-in-law, Peter Sarsgaard, missed out on the beach nuptials due to work obligations, since he was around the globe at a Green Lantern premiere with Ryan Reynolds in Germany. Jake's now back to keeping up his strict fitness regime for End of Watch. We got a peek at Jake's ripped muscles recently, when he joined Man vs. Wild host Bear Grylls on a glacier and volcano hiking tour through Iceland. View Slideshow › »

Bear Grylls "shaken" by fake storm created using wind machines

19 July 2011 6:45 AM, PDT | Reality Blurred | See recent Reality Blurred news »

Man vs. Wild's has already been revealed to be frequently staged. And while there is some real danger, Bear Grylls' complaint about the intensity of a recent situation is pretty hilarious considering it was faked. The L.A. Times reports that "Grylls, attempting to re-create a storm in northern Norway, had the show's producers amp up the drama by using massive wind machines -- and the result was almost more than Grylls could take."

Jake Gyllenhaal Opens Wide for Worm on Man vs. Wild

12 July 2011 12:45 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jake Gyllenhaal may be a major player in Tinseltown, but to the deadly tundra of Iceland, he's just another candidate for a painful, lonely death in the middle of nowhere. Yet for some reason, brave Jake tempted fate and tagged along with Bear Grylls in the season kickoff of Man vs. Wild in an episode ripe with danger, thrills and countless Brokeback Mountain joke set-ups. See for yourself ...         At the very least, humiliating a major Hollywood star by force-feeding him a worm will take my mind off of the fact that I'm on a basic cable show, crossing freezing rivers for a living. »

Jake Gyllenhaal vs. Man vs. Wild

12 July 2011 10:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The season debut of Man Vs. Wild once again finds Bear Grylls bro-ing down with Hollywood talent (two years ago Will Ferrell yukked his way across the Arctic Circle), bringing Jake Gyllenhaal to Iceland. Brave Jake engages in so much questionable behavior it's amazing the show isn't called Man vs. Insurance Liability. But at least Bear has plenty of sage safety advice. Whether Jake needs it or not. Like this gem... And as a Hollywood star, he's also used to protecting his nuts. »

Grylls N’ Gylls: Jake Gyllenhaal Almost Falls To His Death On Man Vs. Wild

12 July 2011 9:35 AM, PDT | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

Here’s a video of Jake Gyllenhaal guest starring on Man vs. Wild, traversing the brutal, bankrupt mountains of Iceland with a helpful (but sadistically gleeful) Bear Grylls. You’d expect a MvW guest star to go through some regular motions, like eating something gross (which he does) and doing something daring, but I didn’t totally expect Jake Gyllenhaal to literally risk his life by scaling a rope over a massive ravine, and the resulting video is legitimately impressive. He’s not as close to death as my obviously attention-grabbing headline implies, but he’s way closer to death than I’ve ever seen him before. Except maybe in Half Nelson. Actually, he kinda had that sh*t under control too. But he was not teaching those kids regular school. After the jump, the Grylls n’ Gylls comedy team goes to work: Pretty impressive, right? Slightly more difficult cameo than, »

Jake Gyllenhaal Eats a Worm on 'Man vs. Wild' (Video)

12 July 2011 8:45 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

"This is one of those moments to face your fear," said Jake Gyllenhaal on the season premiere of "Man vs. Wild" on Monday. The "Source Code" actor joined host Bear Grylls in a remote area of Iceland to test his mettle in the great outdoors, even though he was woefully clueless about what might happen. "I have done nothing to prepare for the show," said Gyllenhaal. Over the course of the hour, he shimmied across a rope high above the earth, hiked through a blizzard, rappelled into a volcanic hot spot, forded an »

Jake Gyllenhaal had no safety line pulling himself across a rope on Man vs. Wild

12 July 2011 7:16 AM, PDT | Reality Blurred | See recent Reality Blurred news »

Actor Jake Gyllenhaal joined Bear Grylls in Iceland on Man vs. Wild last night, and besides gutting a rotten sheep with his bare hands, peeing on national TV, and falling into a hole, he slid across a rope that was high above an icy valley. And he did so without a safety line. Although the elements are very real, the show is still set up: Discovery added disclaimers after it was revealed that a lot »

Jake Gyllenhaal Strips Down in Freezing Cold on 'Man vs. Wild'

12 July 2011 5:50 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Jake Gyllenhaal is used to showing off his body for Hollywood films and magazine photo shoots ... but not in the sub-zero temperatures of Iceland ! The actor appeared on the season premiere of " Man vs. Wild " last night, where he ventured to a remote area of the very very cold country with host Bear Grylls . The two ate worms, slept together in a small cave (which Bear said reminded him of " Brokeback Mountain ") and, at one point, had to strip off their clothes to keep them dry as they crossed a freezing cold river. Check out the chilly river crossing above! Read more »

Jake Gyllenhaal proved he is not afraid of a meaty challenge on survival expert Bear Grylls' upcoming TV special by eating a worm on camera.

Gyllenhaal refused to let the bad weather get in the way of the activities, and joined in with all the challenges Grylls offered up, even eating a creepy crawly as he adapted to the survival lifestyle - proudly declaring: "First worm!"

‘Man vs. Wild’ Season 6 Promos: Jake Gyllenhaal Takes on Iceland

7 July 2011 7:59 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Just how impressive is Bear Grylls’ resume? Let’s see: served in the British Special Air Services, has climbed Mount Everest, is a television star and Internet meme, and now he’ll be Jake Gyllenhaal’s newest co-star (or is that the other way around?).

The host of The Discovery Channel’s Man vs. Wild will be joined by the actor while facing the wilds of Iceland, in the adventure series’ upcoming slew of new episodes.

Apparently, Grylls and Gyllenhaal share more than just hard-to-spell surnames – as evidenced by two clips from Gyllenhaal’s upcoming episode of Man vs. Wild, they also have a passion for the outdoors and adventure.

For his part in the hit Discovery Channel series, Gyllenhaal spent two days with Grylls in Iceland – traversing some of the country’s most rugged terrain. From promos recently ...
