Man or cyborg? ‘Jeopardy!’ champ passes $1 million mark

NEW YORK (AP) — There’s no truth to the rumor that James Holzhauer is a cyborg created to be the perfect “Jeopardy!” contestant. It sometimes seems that way, given how he’s made a level of excellence rarely seen on the television quiz show appear almost mundane. On his 14th appearance Tuesday, Hozhauer eclipsed the $1 […]

HBO to Air ‘McMillions’, a Documentary Series About the McDonald’s Monopoly Fraud

When The Daily Beast published an article last summer titled “How an Ex-Cop Rigged McDonald’s Monopoly Game and Stole Millions,” it captured Hollywood’s attention in a big way. We later learned that was by design: the article, which details extreme (and wildly entertaining) levels of fraud surrounding the nationwide Monopoly game that McDonald’s previously participated in, was written with the express purpose of being adapted into a movie. A film adaptation is still on the table, but now a docu...

‘What/If’ Trailer: Love is a Game for Renée Zellweger in Netflix Anthology Series

What if Renée Zellweger was in charge of your destiny? It’s not as enticing as it sounds in What/If, the new Netflix social thriller anthology drama series starring the Bridget Jones’ Baby actress as some sort of omniscient chess master who loves nothing more than to play with people’s lives. But what is enticing is the Oscar winner’s comeback to a high-profile project after she’s been all but absent from the big screen. Could this be the beginning of the Renée-ssance?

The ‘Gotham’ Series Finale Trailer is Absolutely Batsh*t

After five long, wacky years, Gotham is ending. And with its bombastic upcoming series finale, we will see the beginning of Batman and the end of the weird, wild madness that is the Jim Gordon-centric Fox series. A show that was meant to be a serious, crime procedural take on the Caped Crusader, Gotham ended up becoming the most ludicrous of all the Batman screen adaptations, and that’s saying something when you have Adam West fighting sharks with…bat shark repellant. But there’s something admi...

The novelty of the landmark late night sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live is that it’s performed live on Saturday night in Studio 8H in 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

‘Cloak and Dagger’ Takes a Rare Dip in Quality With “Rabbit Hold”

Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like this week’s Cloak & Dagger episode, “Rabbit Hold,” was missing something. The problem is I that I don’t know what it could be missing, since it hit all of the same beats a usual Cloak & Dagger episode. But somehow, the heart of the episode was lost. It was as if the episode was going through the motions. Maybe this is what a Cloak & Dagger filler episode feels like. “Rabbit Hold” did have a purpose, though—it set up a future plotpoint as well as...

‘The Dark Tower’ TV Series Cast Adds ‘Game of Thrones’ Actor Jerome Flynn as a ‘Cowboy’

Having failed to work on the big screen, Stephen King‘s fantasy epic The Dark Tower is headed to smaller pastures with Amazon’s new Dark Tower TV series. Rather than follow the path of King’s books exactly, the series is said to be more of a prequel – which means it will likely use elements from the forth book in the series, Wizard and Glass. We already learned who would be playing the leads of the show, and now a new Dark Tower TV series cast member has been added. Jerome Flynn, who plays Bron...

William Zabka on Giving John Kreese a Second Chance in ‘Cobra Kai’ Season 2 [Interview]

Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) was the villain of The Karate Kid . Sure, he had a bad influence in John Kreese (Martin Kove), but Johnny was the one Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) had to defeat at the All Valley Karate Tournament. Cobra Kai reinvented the movie series with Johnny as the hero, or at least a co-protagonist with a middle-aged Daniel. The final scene of season one showed the return of John Kreese, so fans have spent all year wondering how Johnny is going to deal with hi...

‘Game of Thrones’ Delivers One of Its All-Time-Best Episodes With “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms”

In “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms,” Game of Thrones does something unusual. It goes small. And intimate. And never strays from a single castle.

Martin Kove Explains How John Kreese’s Vietnam Backstory Led to ‘Cobra Kai’ [Interview]

The one returning Karate Kid cast member we didn’t get to interview during the lead-up to season one of Cobra Kai was Martin Kove. That’s because he was a surprise in the very last scene of the season finale. Now that he’s a regular for season two, Kove was available to talk about Cobra Kai and the Karate Kid legacy. The return of John Kreese was just as surprising to Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), who believed that Kreese was dead. Now season two can explore how Johnny can tur...

Kevin Hunter Reportedly Paid $10 Million to Leave “The Wendy Williams Show” For Good

“Hit the road, Jack!
