To no one's surprise, 'Carpool Karaoke' officially gets picked up to series

27 July 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Finally, Carpool Karaoke is becoming an official series. We all knew that this would happen eventually, especially after the success of Spike's Lip Sync Karaoke (based on a segment that originated on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon) and the recently announced Caraoke Showdown (that very well may be a ripoff of James Corden's idea). The only surprise is the network: Apple Music.  Carpool Karaoke, based on The Late Late Show with James Corden segment in which Corden sings the hits with various celebrities who are riding shotgun, will consist of 16 episodes. According to the press release, "In each episode, celebrities will ride along and sing along with the host (to be announced) as they visit places meaningful to the celebrity, sing tunes from their personal playlists and surprise fans who don’t expect to see big stars belting out tunes one lane over." A new episode will become available »

16 July 2016 1:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The new Ghostbusters isn't for everyone but it will be everything to someone. Paul Feig explains why he feels it's important for young girls to see themselves on screen and a blast from Kate McKinnon's Halloween past will show you why. I'm sure most of you have seen this by now but if not, please gaze upon the adorableness. This Is Why Female Led Films Are Important pic.twitter.com/DsCj0NlHvg — trudie (@hoItzmanns) July 10, 2016 Speaking with Vulture about the immense pressure of making a $150 million movie, Feig spoke on why he personally feels it was important to take the risk: “I wanted for little girls to be able to see themselves up on the screen,” Feig says. “The original one exists, so you can see boys doing it, but how fun for girls to have this experience!” That’s why he pushed so hard for new Ghostbusters action figures. »

‘Lip Sync Battle’ Goes From Late-Night Segment to Popular Worldwide Format

31 March 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Who could have predicted that the world’s next great TV format would be tossed off in a late-night talk show segment?

In a May 2013 airing of “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” the host stepped to the mic to face off against guest John Krasinski, fresh off his stint on “The Office.” The competition: lip syncing. Fallon opened with Melissa Manchester’s “Don’t Cry Out Loud”; Krasinski responded with Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream.” And a format (eventually) was born.

Now, with new hit entertainment shows thin on the ground at TV markets, Viacom’s “Lip Sync Battle” is proving that simplicity can pay dividends.

“Over the last 20 years, I’ve been involved in selling a lot of formats, but shows that skyrocket like ‘Lip Sync Battle’ don’t come along that often,” says Caroline Beaton, Viacom’s VP of international programming sales.

Beaton launched the show at Mip last year, »
