21 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Star Trek: Discovery is now set to premiere later this year on CBS All Access.

Leslie Moonves, CEO of CBS, on Monday told the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference that the reboot of the sci-fi franchise will debut "in late summer, early fall we're looking at probably, right now."

Originally slated to debut last month as CBS All Access' first original scripted series, the project has been delayed several times, most notably due to the departure of Bryan Fuller as showrunner.

But Moonves said the drama, currently in production in Toronto, will not be hurried into the »

Oscars: A Closer Look at the Results That Were Overshadowed By the Best Picture Confusion

27 February 2017 1:46 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

It's early Monday morning, and I'm finally back at my desk and starting to process what I witnessed only a few hours ago, but one thing's for sure: Bonnie and Clyde ended better for Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway than the 89th Oscars did.

When the two Hollywood legends took the stage to present best picture — something that I reported was going to take place — and Dunaway shouted the name "La La Land," the storyline for the evening seemed like it couldn't be more positive for the Academy. Jimmy Kimmel, who ABC had persuaded the »

Academy President Says She Was Horrified by Best Picture Disaster

3 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs was just as confused as everyone else when La La Land was mistakenly named Best Picture at the Oscars and chaos — all being televised on live TV — broke out on stage.

“Horror,” she told The New Yorker of her reaction in the immediate aftermath of the blunder. “I just thought, What? What? I looked out and I saw a member of Pricewaterhouse coming on the stage, and I was, like, Oh, no, what—what’s happening? What what What? What could possibly . . . ? And then I just thought, Oh, my God, how does this happen? How. »

TV Ratings: Jimmy Kimmel’s Oscar Explanation Tops Colbert and Stewart, ‘The Voice’ Returns Slightly Down

19 minutes ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jimmy Kimmel Live!” generally lags behind its late night competition on CBS and NBC. Not so Monday night: Riding the wave of the biggest snafu in Oscars history, Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel became the momentary King of Late Night. In Nielsen’s metered market overnight ratings, which measure the top 56 markets in the country, Kimmel pulled in a 2.6 household rating. That easily topped Fallon’s “Tonight Show,” which drew a 2.2 household rating, but perhaps more interesting is that he also edged out Colbert’s “Late Show,” which, despite featuring a widely publicized appearance by Jon Stewart, drew a 2.5 household rating, right around its performance for the last few weeks. Kimmel was also tops in the 25 markets with local people meters that measure the 18-49 demographic, notching a 0.8 to Fallon’s 0.7 and Colbert’s 0.6.

It’s unlikely Monday’s order of finish is indicative of a real sea change — as we see with shows that premiere after the »

21 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

NBC’s “Taken” adaptation grabbed the most total viewers of any new drama debut on the Big 4 broadcast networks since early October. Of course, the small-screen version of the Liam Neeson film premiered immediately after a new season of TV ratings monster “The Voice” kicked off, which would prove a boon to even the lamest of shows. With the combination, NBC easily won Monday in both the key 18-49 demographic and among total viewers.

Seth Meyers Previews President Trump’s Address to Congress (Video)

“Late Night” host Seth Meyers dug into how President Trump’s upcoming address to Congress could go, saying it will be difficult for Potus to discuss his agenda when his agenda is mostly attacking the media. “This claim Trump keeps making that the media makes up sources and publishes fake news doesn’t make sense according to Trump’s own logic, because while he claims the press is making up fake sources, he also claims there are real leakers in the Federal government and the leakers should be caught and punished,” Meyers said. “He has the chance to sell Americans »

20th Century Fox has released a new poster for “Alien: Covenant” ahead of unveiling the latest trailer for the horror pic on Wednesday. In the poster, the word “Hide” is visible above an egg that looks very similar to the one used in the poster for Ridley Scott’s 1979 classic.

One night after the Oscars, “Late Late Show” host James Corden tried to make sense of the flub that occurred when “La La Land” was erroneously named Best Picture instead of “Moonlight.” “When this happened, I bet Hillary Clinton was like, ‘Yeah, welcome to my world,'” Corden said on Monday night’s episode of the show. He went on to explain that presenters Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty were given the wrong envelope and “were expected to make it work.” “Basically, they were the Sean Spicer of the Oscars!” said Corden. “Warren Beatty looked so confused… and then he opened the envelope. »

Watch James Corden in Emma Stone Drag For 'La La Land' Parody

James Corden relived the Oscars' Best Picture blunder by portraying Emma Stone's "Audition" sequence in La La Land on The Late Late Show Monday.

Donning a periwinkle sweater and red wig à la Stone's character, Corden stood before two casting directors and began to "paint [them] a picture" of the moment when La La Land was Best Picture. Slowly, Corden broke into song as the truth came out that Moonlight was the real winner, belting, "Here's to the ones that lose/ God I need so much booze!" Corden also honored »

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Monday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” may have been all about the Oscars flub heard round the world, but it also made time for a segment that keeps on giving.

After being featured in the Oscars edition of “Mean Tweets,” Robert De Niro got a version of the segment all to himself — an honor that has only been bestowed to former President Barack Obama. The “Taxi Driver” star didn’t just brush off the insults though, but bit back.

Robert De Niro is not a Good Fella. He is a Pos,'” one tweet reads. “Piece of s—? You know what you can do? You can suck my c—, you f—in’ little scumbag. Happy?”

His other Nsfw reactions ranged from a simple “F— you,” to “Who are you? Are you some little f—in’ 15-year-old with nothing better to do in your life?”

‘I Don’t Feel at Home’ Review: Melanie Lynskey and Elijah Wood Kick Butt

1 hour ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

At this point, bloody black crime comedies in which escalating gore turns to slapstick are pretty much an indie genre all their own, descended from Quentin Tarantino and Guy Ritchie and populated with sketchy losers whose misadventures land them in increasing trouble until most of them are dead and nobody — including the audience — survives unscathed or unpunished. Those films can be messy and sick and ridiculous — and also, if they’re done right, a lot of fun. And on opening night at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, Macon Blair did it right with “I Don’t Feel at Home »

Watch Ed Sheeran Perform 'Shape of You' With Toy Instruments on 'Fallon'

1 hour ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Ed Sheeran teamed up with Jimmy Fallon and the Roots for a ramshackle version of his hit "Shape of You" played with toy instruments on The Tonight Show Monday.

Sheeran pumped a banana-shaped shaker for extra percussion and sang over a mix of xylophone, kazoo and ukulele. The busy arrangement was a far cry from the sparse pop of the studio version of "Shape of You," but the performance still captured the song's playfulness, especially as the Roots hummed the song's rumbling backing vocals.

"Shape of You" will appear on »
