Watch Fox Nation’s First National Ad to Air During the Super Bowl (Exclusive)

  • The Wrap
If you’ve seen coverage of Fox Nation and wondered how it differs from Fox News, executives have heard you. A new 20-second ad outlining the differences between Fox News and its subscription streaming service will air during the Super Bowl on Feb. 2.

The spot, titled “Celebrating America,” sees a producer running from a Fox News control room to find talent who can cover breaking news. When he runs into the green room, he finds Fox Nation talent, Marilyn Monroe, a firefighter and a bald eagle.

“This is actually the Fox Nation green room,” says Abby Hornacek, who hosts the travel-themed Fox Nation show “Park’d,” along with the streaming service’s “American Arenas” — which goes inside sports venues — and “The Ride to Work.”

Listen: Julia Louis-Dreyfus on Playing ‘Lovable Assholes,’ and Tony Hale on That ‘Veep’ Finale Gut Punch
Julia Louis-Dreyfus knew the bar was high when it came time to end “Veep.”

“It was very important for us to stick this f—ing landing and then some,” she told Variety‘s My Favorite Episode podcast. “Because I really feel this has been the job of a lifetime for me thus far. I feel and felt very protective of it from the beginning. I was fiercly determined to get this sucker right on the way out.”

In the end, President Selina Meyer’s legacy “is a dismal one and to be forgotten, and it’s appropriate,” Louis-Dreyfus noted. And then, of course, there is the heartbreaking moment where Selina sells out her one true loyalist, sycophant bag boy Gary Walsh (Tony Hale), who is sent to jail to clear the path for her election.

“That moment where she sent him to jail, that was a gift to Gary because

Donna Brazile is Ready to Talk Left-Leaning Politics – on Fox News

  • Variety
A stalwart Democrat plus Fox News Channel? That’s a recipe for making sparks fly. But Donna Brazile says she’s not looking for a fight when she appears on the cable-news outlet.

Brazile, the former campaign manager for Al Gore in 2000 and a one-time interim chair of the Democratic National Committee, was named a Fox News contributor in March, and since that time has made appearances on everything from “Fox & Friends” to “The Five.” She says she’s ready to hold forth in any timeslot the network wants to put her – even if it’s during Fox News’ opinion-led primetime block, where the hosts are often supportive of President Trump.

“I’m not saying I don’t have strong views. I have strong views,” says Brazile during a recent wide-ranging phone interview. “I think it’s important to be civil.”

Since being named to the new role, she has

'MacGyver' Spinoff Sparks Profits Suit

'MacGyver' Spinoff Sparks Profits Suit
In the era of reboots and revivals, a lawsuit over the new MacGyver series is exploring the definition of "spinoff."

Hanzer Holdings, the successor in interest to Major Talent Agency, and Arlita, another successor to Mta, are suing CBS for breach of contract. They claim Mta's work as a packaging agent in connection with the original MacGyver entitled it to a cut of the new series.

According to the complaint, Paramount in 1984 entered into an agreement with the loan-out companies of Henry Winkler and John Rich, and CBS is the successor in interest to the studio's rights ...

How Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean Theme Bars Are Remaking Nashville’s Broadway

How Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean Theme Bars Are Remaking Nashville’s Broadway
Our night in downtown Nashville begins in a bank-turned-tattoo-parlor-turned-Luke Bryan-themed restaurant with a pickup truck dangling over the stage where a band is covering Maren Morris’s “My Church.” The space has six levels, eight bars, numerous light-up “Luke Bryan” signs and more flat screens than a Best Buy. But we are on the roof drinking Coors Light and eating fried sushi.

“Same kitchen, different bars,” a hostess says, referring to Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar located next door, as if she has explained it a thousand times.

John Rich Dishes on His Celebrity Apprentice Boss Donald Trump: 'You Never Know What He's Going to Say to You'

John Rich Dishes on His Celebrity Apprentice Boss Donald Trump: 'You Never Know What He's Going to Say to You'
Though President Donald Trump announced he wanted to run for the nation’s highest office in June 2015, Big & Rich’s John Rich first heard about Trump’s bid four years earlier when the country star won the Celebrity Apprentice.

“So I win Celebrity Apprentice, all of the confetti falls out of the ceiling, I’m standing there next to Mr. Trump,” Rich — who won season 11 of the reality show, raising a record $1.4 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital — tells People Now.

Rivera explained that he had been fighting an uphill battle the whole way.

The Celebrity Apprentice Season 14 Contestants Revealed

The Celebrity Apprentice is back on January 4th, and it looks like another unbelievable season pitting celebrities of varying (and questionable) “List” rankings against each other in a series of “events” that mean nothing beyond who can sucker in the most other celebrities to donate money.

That may sound negative, but overall the show is one of my favorites, and one that I can’t support enough. Now, it isn’t that I enjoy watching the bizarre clashes between people you forgot existed, people who have to be identified to justify their celebrity status, and people dumb enough to show up because they were only invited for their hate-watch draw. The show occasionally has something interesting going on in the weekly contest, but the general “celebrities are just as nuts as the regular people we con into signing up for this,” appeal doesn’t really work for me. No, it

Florida Georgia Line will overtake previous winners for Vocal Duo at CMAs

Florida Georgia Line will overtake previous winners for Vocal Duo at CMAs
First-time Cma nominees Florida Georgia Line will also be first-time winners according to our predictors, who give them field-leading 3/10 odds to win Vocal Duo of the Year. But to do so they'll have to get past a pair of previous victors. Sugarland won this category for five consecutive years (2007-2011) before finally losing to Thompson Square in 2012. But this year Thompson Square ranks third with 12/1 odds, while Sugarland trails in fourth with 25/1 odds. -Break- If anyone beats Florida Georgia Line it will more likely be The Civil Wars, whom our predictors place second with 10/1 odds. But a win for them might very well be their last; the duo announced an indefinite hiatus late in 2012 due to "irreconcilable differences." Despite the discord, their self-titled second album was released to critical acclaim and strong record sales this past August. The two remaining nominees are unlikely to threaten: Love and Theft and Big and Rich
