Former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo to host primetime show on NewsNation

Former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is returning to primetime TV to host a new show for NewsNation, the cable news channel owned by local TV giant Nexstar. NewsNation is led by Michael Corn, a former executive producer of ABC’s Good Morning America (Cuomo also used to work at ABC News). The news channel was launched as a programming block in 2020, with the whole channel rebranding last year. Before shifting to cable news, it operated as a cable channel known as WGN America.

Cuomo’s show will debut in the fall.  He said: “I want to find a way to help people, I am going to come to newsNation and I want to build something special here. I’ve decided that I can’t go back to what people see as ‘the big game,’ I think we need insurgent media, I think we need outlets that aren’t fringe and just trying to fill their pockets.”

Cuomo was fired by CNN in December after new details emerged about the lengths he went to help his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, respond to allegations of sexual harassment. Earlier this month, Cuomo launched a podcast called The Chris Cuomo Project. The debut episode, which included an interview with actor Sean Penn, also featured Cuomo’s first comments about CNN since his departure from the cable news channel.

Bush return with their new single from the upcoming album ‘The Art of Survival’

Bush has returned with the new single “More Than Machines” taken off their ninth studio album The Art of Survival, the band’s first release since The Kingdom in 2020.  The Art of Survival is due out on October 7th; to pre-order/pre-save the album, head here,

Frontman Gavin Rossdale says of the track ‘More Than Machines‘: “This is an action-packed song with three really big topics. Off the bat, I don’t understand how anyone has the audacity to get involved or assume responsibility for women’s bodies. I wanted to reference that because it’s important to discuss. As much as the song is about the destruction of women’s rights, it’s about the destruction of the planet and the move for A.I. and a world of robots to replace us. It’s a topic we’ve heard since the ’50s. I’m not here to teach anything though; my job is medieval like a town crier. I come into town with my elixirs and sing about it, so it hopefully goes out into the universe.” 

You can take a listen to the new single More Than Machines  – here.

Tony Dow, who portrayed Wally Cleaver on ‘Leave It to Beaver,’ dies at age 77

Actor Tony Dow, who played Wally Cleaver on the long-running 1950s sitcom “Leave It to Beaver,” died Wednesday morning at the age of 77 due to complications from liver cancer. Dow’s death was officially announced on the actor’s official Facebook page, and confirmed by his son and Dow’s agent, Frank Bilotta. On Tuesday, Dow’s management team had erroneously announced the actor’s death in a Facebook post that has since been deleted. Later on Tuesday, Dow’s manager and his wife, Lauren Shulkind, both said that Dow was still alive and in hospice care.

Dow portrayed Beaver’s older brother, Wally on “Leave It to Beaver” from 1957 to 1963. After “Leave It to Beaver” ended, Dow continued to act, but also served in the National Guard between 1965 and 1968, according to TMZ.   Dow later reprised the beloved role for another six years on The New Leave It to Beaver, which aired from 1983 to 1989, as well as in the Still the Beaver TV movie in the early ‘80s.  The California native continued to act on TV throughout the next several decades, including a starring role in 153 episodes of Never Too Young in the mid-‘60s. In the ‘70s and ‘80s, Dow made appearances on Lassie, My Three Sons, Mr. Novak, Murder, She Wrote and Charles in Charge.

Dow directed five episodes of Still the Beaver and wrote one for that show, later branching out into directing other series, including “Harry and the Hendersons,” “Coach,” “Babylon 5,” “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.”

Dow is survived by his wife Lauren, son Christopher, brother Dion and one grandchild.

Metallica release animated lyric video for “Master Of Puppets”

36 years after its release, Metallica have finally shared the music video for the title track to their 1986 Master of Puppets album. The animated lyric video was created by UK design agency ILOVEDUST, which helped in creating Ozzy Osbourne’s Patient Number 9 artwork and worked with the Foo Fighters for their Studio 666 movie.

Master of Puppets has received major attention lately, thanks to its inclusion in the Season 4 finale of the Netflix mega-hit series Stranger Things.  Metallica had previously released live performances of Master of Puppets, but this is the first official video released from their first three albums spanning 1983-1986. The group’s first-ever video was issued in 1988 for “One” which appears on …And Justice For All.

The signature song from the band jumped from 47-23 in its first appearance in the UK Top 40 more than three decades after its initial release. The song also climbed up the Billboard charts dated July 16, making its first appearance on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 at No. 40 and marking the bands’ first time on the chart since “The Day That Never Comes” wrapped its run in November 2008, after reaching No. 31 that September.

Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings named permanent Jeopardy! hosts

Two years after the death of Alex Trebeck, Jeopardy! has a new set of hosts — interim hosts Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings will stay on as the game show’s co-hosts permanently.

Bialik and Jennings have been splitting hosting duties on Jeopardy! since last September, and the quiz show’s two-host format will help the program develop spinoffs. Bialik is expected to host primetime editions of the show, as well as the new Celebrity Jeopardy! in the works at ABC. Executive producer Michael Davies told Variety in June: “With all of our plans for Jeopardy! — which is more Jeopardy!, not less, more versions — we’re going to need multiple hosts to represent the entire audience, to represent the entire country, in order to take this franchise forward.”

A number of stars took turns guest-hosting Jeopardy! over the past two years. Last August, the series named executive producer Mike Richards as its official permanent host, but after offensive comments he made on a 2013 podcast were discovered, he was let go from hosting duties.
