11 hours ago

While there is still time, someone might want to give Tucker Carlson's booking team a call. Based on how 20/20 (0.8/3) stumbled last night with a sit-down and catch-up interview with Caitlyn Jenner, the Fox News Channel host may find his April 24 debut in Bill O'Reilly's old time slot proving less than golden with the former Olympian as a guest. Two years after Diane Sawyer's ratings multi-year record breaking chat with the transitioning 1976 decathlete and reality TV… »

11 hours ago

Counter-programming? President Donald Trump will stage a Big rally in Pennsylvania next Saturday night, which just so happens to be the evening of the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner that he’s already rebuffed.

Pilots 2017: More Very Early Buzz

21 April 2017 6:46 PM, PDT

In just three weeks, the networks will be done with the bulk of their new series pickups and will be in the thick of finalizing fall schedules — unless there is a writers strike, in which case that will be top of mind for everyone with upfronts taking a back seat. Like with the first Pilot Buzz, my information is still very sketchy because pilots are just starting to come in at the networks as the majority are in post-production or studio testings.
