TV Down:

latest news at page 1:
    By Jacqueline Boyd, The Conversation On the face of it, a recently launched TV channel dedicated to dogs seems, well, barking mad. But our pets often spend long periods of time home alone, and providing some form of enrichment and stimulation can be very beneficial to dogs and their owners alike. During the pandemic, many dogs enjoyed having their owners around more often than normal due to the public health restrictions. But the gradual return to the workplace, along with increasingly busy social calendars, has meant that our dogs are once again spending more time in their own company. Some of our canine friends—particularly those dogs who have only known life with their owners since the pandemic began—are now experiencing some difficulties adapting to this new lifestyle. So, any tool which can provide stimulation and entertainment can be helpful to minimize their distress and keep them happy and healthy. Some dogs relish their time alone. It gives them a chance to grab some valuable resting and relaxation time—indeed, dogs can benefit from up to 16 hours of sleep per day....
    Former co-host Jedediah Bila was shut down Tuesday on ABC’s “The View” after saying she was not vaccinated. Co-host Joy Behar said, “Let’s address the elephant in the room because you were supposed to join us in the studio weeks ago, but you couldn’t because ABC has a very strict policy. You can’t get into this building unless you’re fully vaccinated. Everybody in this room knows that and is vaccinated, but you made a conscious decision not to get the vaccine. Now the CDC says a person is ten times less likely to be hospitalized from COVID and 11 times less likely to die if they’ve gotten the vaccine, okay? So why didn’t you get it?” Bila said, “I want to let people know why I’m not there. I have a medical exemption to the vaccine that’s been written by my vaccinated specialist in New York City that’s been co-signed by three other doctors. I’m not a candidate for this vaccine. I also have sky-high multi-tear, multifaceted natural immunity, very, very high that has also been proven. It has been shown,...

    NEW YORK (AP) — World Series television ratings rebounded following the record low set last year. The Atlanta Braves’ six-game victory over the Houston Astros averaged 11,750,000 viewers on Fox, the network said Wednesday. That was up 20% from the 9,785,000 for the Los Angeles Dodgers’ six-game victory last year over the Tampa Bay Rays, which was played at the neutral site of Arlington, Texas, following a pandemic-shortened regular season. This year’s Series averaged a 6.5 rating and 16 share, up from a 5.2 rating and 12 share last year. Viewership for the Braves-Astros matchup was below the level for Washington’s seven-game victory over Houston in 2019, which averaged an 8.1 rating, 16 share and 14,067,000 viewers. A record average of 227,164 streamed this year’s Series on Fox digital outlets, an increase of 49%. Atlanta’s 7-0 win in Game 6, which finished the Braves’ first title since 1995, drew a 7.88 rating, 18 share and average of 13,968,000 viewers on Fox. That was up from the 6.8 rating, 15 share and an average of 12,627,000 viewers for the Dodgers’...
    Nicky Hilton Is Sleek for Fall in a Quilted Jacket and Slingback Stilettos Week 9 single-game DFS picks: Mike White revolution to stun Colts? The Atlanta Braves The World Series ended Tuesday with its biggest audience of the six-game contest and posted substantial games over last year’s pandemic-altered series. But aside from last year, the series goes down as the least watched since total-viewer tallies became available in the early 1970s. Elsewhere Tuesday, CBS’ FBI trio held up reasonably well, NBC’s La Brea slipped without a new Voice as a lead-in and Fox News dominated coverage of off-year elections. Atlanta’s 7-0 victory over Houston in game six of the World Series averaged 13.97 million viewers on Fox, up 11 percent over last year’s clinching game six (12.63 million). The series as a whole averaged about 11.74 million viewers, a 20 percent bump from last year’s all-time low but well behind every pre-pandemic World Series for which there are viewer records. The prior low was 12.64 million viewers for a four-game series in 2012. FBI was the most watched show...
    TRACY Morgan broke down crying on live TV as he told Today show host Hoda Kotb that it was eight-year-old daughter Maven who helped him fight his way out of a coma following a horrific car crash in 2014 that nearly killed him. The Last OG actor called his daughter his "greatest costar ever," telling Hoda, 57: "She's very close to me. We're very close. She's my baby." 5Tracy Morgan says daughter Maven helped get him out of his 2014 comaCredit: Instagram 5Following a horrific car crash, the actor was unconscious for two weeksCredit: Today When the crash occurred, Maven was a baby.

    Over the course of five seasons, Narcos and Narcos: Mexico have been as bleak—and consistently great—as anything on television, and that holds true for the latter’s closing run, which solidifies the series’ standing as the definitive drama about the 1970s-1990s drug trade. Set in the lush jungles, arid deserts, and sweltering metropolises of South America and Mexico, Netflix’s trafficking saga (returning Nov. 5) is a jet-black neo-noir driven by a despondency that knows no bounds. As always, there’s scant uplift here—just an overarching recognition that there’s no hope for justice, for peace, for answers, for absolution, or for the monstrous horrors of the world to ever truly be vanquished. For all of its thrills and intrigue, Narcos: Mexico’s third go-round is a fatalistic nightmare marked by a pervasive sense of disconnection. In the early 1990s, with kingpin Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) now behind bars after failing to unite the country’s rival cartels, pilot-turned-Juarez boss Amado Carrillo Fuentes (the magnetic José María Yazpik) concocts a revolutionary way to evolve the business: separate each facet of his trafficking operation, so...

    A local Nevada television station will no longer run an attack ad targeting Republican Senate candidate Adam Laxalt following the threat of a lawsuit from the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC). The Democrat-affiliated Senate Majority PAC (SMP) paid for the ad, titled “Standing in the Way,” to run on multiple Nevada TV stations, including Reno’s CBS affiliate, KTVN 2 News. It claims that Laxalt “oppos[es] relief for Nevada’s economy, says ‘no’ to lower prescription drug costs for seniors on Medicare, [and] opposes the expanded child tax credit.” Attorneys for the NRSC called those claims “misleading and false” in a letter requesting that KTVN 2 News no longer run the ad. The request was first reported on by Politico. In the letter, the attorneys note that the articles cited in the ad do not include Laxalt’s position on the issues mentioned, and in one case, does not even mentioned Laxalt’s name. Interesting item in @playbookdc this morning about the NRSC getting a Reno TV station to stop running a Senate Democratic PAC ad over allegations of inaccuracy. pic.twitter.com/3ql6rTPHae — Humberto Sanchez...
    Democratic candidate for Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe is denying a local news station's claim that he abruptly stormed out of an interview halfway through. McAuliffe spokesman Renzo Olivari on Wednesday shared screenshots of his text messages with WJLA-TV reporter Nick Minock, which purport to show the interview was scheduled for 10 minutes, not 20 as the station claimed.  Olivari accused the ABC affiliate station of 'mislead[ing] viewers by saying Terry "abruptly" left an interview that was ALWAYS scheduled to be 10 mins long.' McAuliffe's campaign went on the defensive as a poll shows GOP rival Glenn Youngkin has closed their once substantial polling gap, crediting chaos at two of the state's woke school boards with helping drive voters to his side.   On Tuesday, the station published the full interviews and transcripts of Minock's sit-downs with McAuliffe and Youngkin, with an anchor claiming that 20 minutes had been allotted for both candidates, but that McAuliffe left early. The controversy is the latest twist in the closely-watched November 2 election, which is now neck-and-neck, and has major implications for President Joe Biden's agenda...
    Appearing Wednesday on the Fox News Channel, Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin mocked his Democrat opponent, former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, for walking out of a television interview this week. A transcript is as follows:  LAWRENCE JONES: You had the former governor, who is your opponent, that walked off an interview yesterday. The interview was about public safety and education. Why is it going this direction for him right now? GLENN YOUNGKIN: Well, he doesn’t have anything to say about it. He failed when he was governor. He brought standards down and left us with a failing school system. By the way, we’re at a 20-year murder rate and when he was governor the murder rate went up 43 percent. So, not only did he not do a good job when he was governor, but he has nothing good to say about it now. And as I travel around Virginia, I get the same questions asked of me, And as I listen to voters, they want the cost of living to come down. JONES: But what about walking out of the interview?...
    TODAY host Hoda Kotb got teary-eyed on live TV during an interview with Oliva Newton-John as the two discussed their breast cancer battles. In March 2007, Hoda underwent a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery for breast cancer and has since become an advocate for breast cancer awareness. 5Hoda teared up while sharing her cancer battle with Olivia in an interviewCredit: Today 5Olivia has been battling breast cancer for nearly 30 yearsCredit: Today The talk show host got emotional during a sit-down with the Grease star while reflecting on her cancer battle.

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, IATSE, is inching closer to a possible strike on Monday.The union represents more than 60,000 so-called below the line workers, such as production coordinators, grips and technicians. It has been negotiating with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, AMPTP, for five months, but with little success.IATSE is seeking pay increases for its lowest paid members, new protections for meal breaks and rest periods, and pay scale increases on streaming productions which currently offer lower wages.And with a 12:01 am Monday deadline, an industry shutdown is looming."I think there will be a strike," said Steven Ross, a professor of history at USC who specializes in Hollywood labor issues.Ross not only says a union strike would shut down most productions across the country, but that other unions are expected to stage sympathy strikes, with effects felt globally."This is an international union," Ross told Eyewitness News.

    Former The View Host Meghan McCain criticized Vice President Kamala Harris for laying flowers at the site where McCain's father was shot down during the Vietnam War, saying that Harris should be focused on evacuating people from Afghanistan.  Harris tweeted a photo of herself Wednesday laying flowers at a monument on Trúc Bạch Lake in Hanoi, where John McCain almost drowned in 1967 after being shot down while flying a US Navy bombing mission. He was then captured by the North Vietnamese and held as a prisoner of war for five-and-a-half years. Her tweet said: 'Today, on the three-year anniversary of his passing, I paid my respects to an American hero, Senator John McCain' 'At this site in 1967, then-Lieutenant Commander McCain was shot down. We honor his sacrifice in Vietnam, and the sacrifice of all our men and women in uniform.' But Meghan was quick to take offense, and responded: 'If you want to honor my dads legacy on this anniversary of his death - you would spend every second making sure every single American and Afghan ally is out of harms way.' ...
    The head of Dominion Voting Systems, John Poulos, revealed he broke down in tears as he watched Rudy Giuliani's infamous 'sweaty' press conference, where the former mayor of New York accused the company of rigging the 2020 election.  As a bead of sweat mixed with hair dye dripped down his face, Giuliani, working as a personal attorney for former President Trump, said in the November 2020 news conference that Dominion 'specializes in voter fraud.'  Giuliani handed the microphone to Trump attorney Sidney Powell, who talked about the 'the massive influence of communist money through Venezuela, Cuba and likely China' on Dominion's operations.  'Oh, my God!' Poulos screamed as he heard the accusations, according to an interview he gave to the New York Times Magazine. 'I can't believe what's going on!' Poulos said he screamed so loudly his wife and children ran to his home office, where they found him in hysterics, tears streaming down his face.  The CEO compared how he felt watching the press conference to how many felt watching the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

    A distressing new ad designed to scare Sydneysiders into staying home to prevent the spread of Covid-19 shows a young woman fighting for life on a ventilator. New South Wales has recorded 77 new local Covid-19 cases and one death overnight on Sunday, with a warning that cases of the highly-infectious Delta variant are likely to be above 100 over the coming days. The severity of the outbreak has prompted the federal government to launch a Covid-19 safety advertisement that will air on Sydney TV screens from Sunday evening.  Chief medical officer Paul Kelly described it as 'graphic' and said it would contain three important messages: 'Stay-at-home, get tested and booked in for a vaccination.'     'There will be a new advertisement running from the Australian government tonight. It is quite graphic. We are only doing this because of the situation in Sydney and it will be running in Sydney,' he said.

    Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who gained fame by representing porn star Stormy Daniels against President Donald Trump, has been sentenced to 30 months in prison over a $25 million Nike extortion scheme.   The brash California lawyer, 50, was sentenced in a Manhattan federal court on Thursday after issuing a tearful and groveling apology to the judge as he decried his fame, saying 'TV and Twitter mean nothing'.   Avenatti was convicted by a jury a year ago of trying to extort Nike by threatening to use his media access to hurt the brand's reputation and stock price when he represented a Los Angeles youth basketball league organizer upset the company had ended its league sponsorship. He was accused of threatening to expose allegations Nike was funneling payments to college basketball players unless the company paid him millions of dollars to conduct an internal investigation. Prior to his sentencing, Avenatti told the court he had 'betrayed' his profession and was 'deeply sorry' for the pain he had caused.  'I betrayed my profession.

    At least two television news stations had their operations disrupted Thursday by what appeared to be a targeted ransomware attack, according to media reports.  The outlets WFTV in Orlando, Fla., and WPXI in Pittsburgh, both owned by Cox Media Group, which owns TV and radio stations in multiple media markets, were offline Thursday, NBC News reported.  "This morning we were told to shut down everything and log out our emails to ensure nothing spread. According to my friends at affiliate stations, we shut things down in time to be safe and should be back up and running soon," a Cox employee said, according to The Record, a company security website.  Employees were also told to delete any tweets about the outages, FTV Live reported.  Managers at the Orlando station asked employees not to come to the station on Thursday and again Friday, according to the NBC report. In Pittsburgh, IT staffers were shutting down computers Thursday morning, it said.  Cox Media did not respond to a Fox News inquiry.  Several industries have been targeted by cyberattacks in recent weeks.

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during their interview with Oprah Winfrey. CBS Rob Lowe believes Meghan Markle and Prince Harry filmed their tell-all interview at Oprah Winfrey's house.  Lowe, who also lives in Montecito, said people thought the chat was filmed at his home.  Winfrey has only said that the interview was filmed at a "friend's" house.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry spilled plenty of secrets during their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey back in March, but the location of their sit-down chat was kept under wraps.  But Rob Lowe believes it was shot at Winfrey's house all along.  Lowe recently discussed how life in his neighborhood of Montecito has changed since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved in, revealing that many people thought Markle and Harry met with Winfrey at his home.  "It's so funny, everybody thinks the interview was shot at my house, and then my friend Ted Sarandos, who runs Netflix, everybody thought they shot it at his house," Lowe told the hosts of E!

    The NBA continues to suffer ratings disasters, with ABC falling 45 percent since the 2011-12 season, TNT down 40 percent, and ESPN off 20 percent. It was reported that in May the NBA lost 13 percent over the “bubble” coronavirus season, and when headed into the final week of the 2020/2021 season, the ratings for ESPN, ABC, and TNT’s broadcasts were all down roughly 13 percent over the 2019/2020 season — the latter of which included the games in the NBA “bubble.” But a loss of only 13 percent year-over-year does not really tell the whole tale. To see how badly the NBA is really doing in its TV ratings, one must go back a decade. Since 2011, the league has lost nearly half its audience. Per Outkick: Compared to 2019, TNT’s 2021 slate dropped 19%, from 1.5 million to 1.2 million. ESPN fell even further, down 26%, from 1.6 million down to under 1.2 million. NBA commissioner Adam Silver once blamed cable packages for collapsing ratings. Has he seen what his sport is doing on ABC, the NBA’s sole broadcast...

    Nigel Farage, the former leader of the U.K. Independence and Brexit parties, tells Newsmax TV that conservatives in America have been going through a period of "virtual mourning" since the November elections, but despite valid reasons to be upset, he wants to encourage them there is reason to hope. There might be questions about election integrity, division in major American cities, and "horrible proposals from the Biden administration," Farage told Mondays "Greg Kelly Reports," but he is currently on a multiweek tour of the of the nation to encourage Americans. "We got Brexit in 2016, and you know, three years later, Brexit hadnt been delivered," he said. "And we had some of the left-wing media boasting the Brexit was never going to happen, and you know what we did? We launched a massive grassroots fight back. I led that fight back. We smashed the establishment in the European elections." Then Prime Minister Theresa May was ousted. "It was a treacherous prime minister," Farage said. The fall of Brexit, he said, was "the biggest geopolitical shift since the fall of the...
    There won’t be pigs, tractors, butter princesses or a Midway. At “Kickoff to Summer at the Fair,” there will be food, brews, live music, shopping, kids’ activities, board games and a chance to ride the Giant Slide. With almost a year’s worth of operating revenue lost to COVID-19, the Minnesota State Fair is doing a soft open walk-around over Memorial Day weekend for the main event in late summer, which is looking more and more like it will happen. Last week, Gov. Tim Walz said the fair should be “pretty close” to normal this year, depending on COVID and vaccination rates. Mark your calendar for Aug. 26-Sept. 6. From Thursday, May 27, through Memorial Day on Monday, May 31, the fairgrounds will open for 7 five-hour time slots (4-9 p.m. Thursday through Sunday, plus 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday through Monday).

    Gold is molded in the fire and greatness is molded in the furnace of adversity. That is the philosophical theme that summarizes the incredible boxing film called “Lola.” Lola is a cinematic achievement. The movie is currently streaming on Tubi TV and it was written and directed by the award-winning filmmaker Antoine Allen. As a fan of boxing movies, I was excited to view “Lola.” The punches, both physical and emotional, in and out of the ring took me completely by surprise. The Redemptive drama is character driven. It’s also directed in a down-to-earth style, with a nice even pace. “Lola” is an ode to everyone who has beaten the odds and prevailed. The script is elevated by great direction and fantastic performances. Actress Taja V. Simpson delivers a knockout performance as the lead character Lola. Ms. Simpson is best known for her current role on Tyler Perry’s hit TV show “The Oval.” The film is about a determined young lady who is a free spirit, but who encounters much hardship stemming from her troubled relationship with her dad...
    Even the mighty Oscars could not avoid the ratings curse that has afflicted every TV awards show in the era of Covid-19. According to early Nielsen data, ABC’s telecast of the host-less Academy Awards on Sunday night averaged 9.9 million total viewers and a 1.9 rating in the coveted 18-49 demographic  — both record lows. Those numbers represent sharp declines — 58 and 64 percent — from last year’s Oscar ceremony (23.6 million/5.3 rating), which at the time were low marks. To add insult to injury, many critics and viewers are slamming ABC’s telecast, which was held at Union Station in Los Angeles. A poll of viewers on tvline.com, gave the show a grade of “F.” Of course, the Oscars are not at all alone in 2021 ratings wreckage. This year’s Grammy Awards on CBS attracted just 8.8 million viewers across multiple platforms, down by a full 10 million from a year ago. And the Golden Globes on NBC experienced a 63 percent decline in total viewers from 2020, plunging from 18.4 million to a mere 6.9 million. The Academy...
    Charles Barkley ruffled some feathers on Thursday night’s “Inside the NBA,” after he took aim at the appearance of women in Georgia. While recapping the Mavericks’ 115-110 win over the Lakers on Thursday, co-host Ernie Johnson praised Lakers guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope for recording 29 points in the game. When KCP’s college career at the University of Georgia was brought up in the conversation, Barkley offered an eyebrow-raising reply. “Georgia the only school in the world they named their mascot after the women down there,” Barkley said. Johnson immediately fired back at Barkley, who starred at SEC rival Auburn during his college days, over the comment. “So totally uncalled for,” said Johnson, later adding, “Not even gonna dignify that with a response.” This isn’t the first time Barkley has come under fire for on-air comments about women. During a 2014 episode of “Inside the NBA,” Barkley made offensive statements about women in San Antonio. “Some big ol’ women down there [in San Antonio] … that’s a gold mine for Weight Watchers,” he said at the time, while...
