NBC Pushes ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ Live Musical to 2018
The tuner had been set to air as NBC’s holiday musical event this year. The decision to push it a year was driven by Lopez’s overflowing schedule, which includes two series for NBC, “World of Dance” and the drama “Shades of Blue.”
The postponement of “Birdie” means NBC will not stage a musical event this holiday season. Earlier this month, NBC unveiled plans for a “Jesus Christ Superstar Live” event to air on Easter Sunday next year. That project will be shepherded by Craig Zedon and Neil Meron, the pair behind all of NBC’s live musical events to date. Given the high cost of the one-night-only live events, it was unlikely that NBC could field “Superstar” just a few months after staging “Birdie,” had the show stayed on its original date, and »

Ratings: ‘Dirty Dancing’ Remake Draws 6.6 Million Viewers for ABC
The “Dirty Dancing” remake delivered ABC’s most-watched Wednesday in nearly 7 months, but that doesn’t mean the Disney-owned broadcaster topped primetime.
Neither did the network airing “Empire’s” season finale, though: Fox finished second in the key 18-49 demographic, but was fourth among total viewers.
That leaves CBS and NBC, and last night belong to the “Survivor” net.
CBS was first in ratings with a 1.7 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 7.8 million, »

‘Fargo’ Review: A Battle Between Ewan McGregors Has Never Felt So Wretched — And Season 3 Never More Exciting
[Editor’s Note: The review below contains spoilers for “Fargo” Season 3, Episode 6, “The Lord of No Mercy.”]
Gloria Burgle to the rescue!
After an episode of incredible tension and unexpected tragedy, we didn’t realize how badly we needed to hear Carrie Coon say, “Screw it,” whip the cruiser around, and high-tail it back to “the P.O.’s domicile.” While the simultaneously ominous and uplifting strings certainly served to get our hearts beating, “Fargo” may as well have played Bonnie Tyler’s famous “Footloose” jam “Holding Out for a Hero” — because one is on the way!
It’s just we had to hold out a little too long. Just enough road blocks were thrown in front of Burgle to keep her from cracking the case earlier, and all that time led to an inevitable tragedy. Ray (Ewan McGregor) is the first major victim of Season 3 (unless you count the annual pilot sacrifice of Scoot McNairy’s Maurice Lafay), in a particularly well-orchestrated offing. First »

Watch Ufc Fighter Matt Serra Teach Neil deGrasse Tyson Jiu Jitsu
Guess who that guy in the photo above is. That’s right. World renowned scientist and one of the smartest guys in the world, Neil deGrasse Tyson was once a collegiate wrestler and from the looks of it quite ripped back in his day. So while it may come as no surprise to know that he is able to hold his own with Ufc fighter Matt Serra, it’s still pretty captivating to watch this coverage of Serra teaching a scientist some Jiu Jitsu moves. The talk of leverage and technique is very simple, and any Mma fan, even a casual one,

Netflix, Amazon Pull Out of TCA Summer Press Tour
Streaming services Netflix and Amazon will not participate in the 2017 Television Critics Association summer press tour.
Ctam, the cable- and broadband-television trade organization, released its schedule for summer press tour Wednesday. That schedule, which for the first time includes streaming services alongside pay-cable channels such as HBO, Discovery, and TNT, did not include dates for Netflix or Amazon.
“I cannot answer to what Netflix’s reasons are for not presenting at the Summer TCA Tour,” said Ctam spokesperson Mary Shaw in a statement Thursday. “However, I can say that there are a lot of variables that go into a content provider being able to present at any given tour. There are many factors that go into a successful presentation e.g., executive availability, talent availability, production schedules, marketing materials, etc. As for the Ctam cable and streaming portion of the tour, we have a robust five days of programming lined up for the critics.

Jimmy Kimmel is Fascinated by Zac Efron and Madonna’s Possible Fling
Slowly but surely Zac Efron is turning into the kind of superstar that everyone assumed he would be. It was looking a little lost for him for a while after his initial fame from High School Musical but ever since Efron announced that he had gotten control over his drinking, he’s been a new man. I feel like he’s one good performance away from being an A-lister. I would say that technically he’s an A-lister right now but it’s more in a Dwayne Johnson kind of a way, which is certainly no bad thing. Efron gets all the “hot guy

One such burgeoning star is Allison Tolman, one of the stars of the highly acclaimed Fargo. This role catapulted Tolman into

Fox News Wants to Keep Sean Hannity Despite Conspiracy-Theory Controversy
Sean Hannity has been one of Fox News Channel’s most popular personalities, throwing red meat daily to the cable network’s core red-state viewers by talking up issues of interest to conservatives. If he were to leave, the network would likely get the blues.
Hannity is no stranger to controversy – he has sparred with former colleague Megyn Kelly and CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, to name a few – but he is at the center of a new one that has sparked a few defections from his show by a handful of advertisers as well as speculation over whether he might return from a Memorial Day weekend vacation that began after his broadcast last night.
“Like the rest of the country, Sean Hannity is taking a vacation for Memorial Day weekend and will be back on Tuesday,” the 21st Century Fox-owned network said in a statement Friday. “Those who suggest otherwise are going to look foolish.” Hannity »
