NBC Dumps $25 Million Jimmy
Fallon NYC ´Tonight Show´ Studio

Hollywood Reporter, by Paul Bond

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/7/2013 11:15:11 PM

Despite months of planning, Jimmy Fallon won´t be getting a big, new $25 million studio at 30 Rock after all when he takes over The Tonight Show and moves it to New York in 2014. Insiders tell THR that NBC spent seven months working on plans that called for the combining of Studios 6B and 8G and turning them into a megastudio for Fallon as well as a showy theater for NBCUniversal to screen movies. Including a balcony, the facility would have fit an audience of 400. The project, though, recently was scrapped, says an insider,

NBC misreads Fallon´s earnestness for talent. Fallon is a measure of the paucity of talent rising to the top of the network TV world these days. There are a few exceptions but Jimmy ain´t one of them. Second time they´ll try and replace Leno.

Third time´s charm, NBC!

Jimmy Fallon is just Wayne´s World come to life, all he really needs is an iPhone and a basement.

Right you are, #6! That stunt Fallon´s band pulled on Michele Bachmann was an outrage and without anyone getting fired. And yea, Leno´s been taking off the monologue gloves a bit lately with Obama jokes, now that he knows Fallon will replace him. When Fallon gets in there, the Obama jokes will revert to gentle, respectful ribbing in the style of Lefty Letterman.

President Obama will deliver UC Irvine’s commencement address on June 14 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, the White House announced Thursday. Obama’s address will come as the campus celebrates its 50th anniversary, marking the year when President Johnson spoke at the dedication ceremony for the campus in 1964. "We are thrilled that the president has accepted our invitation to deliver the keynote address at our commencement exercises this June,” said UCI Chancellor Michael V. Drake in a statement. “We are proud of the progress we have made during our first half century, and are looking forward to even greater achievements

A test of the Republican old order
Washington Times (D.C), by Wesley Pruden    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/20/2014 9:17:39 PM     Post Reply
The old order changeth, and he who does not get out of the way risks getting runneth over. This applies to senators, baseball players, preachers, poachers, Volkswagen mechanics and anyone else who isn’t paying attention. The rule threatens Thad Cochran, the senior senator from Mississippi, where the old order is much appreciated, though no longer revered as it once was. Mr. Cochran is polished and courtly, and when Hollywood casts a gentleman of the Old South it could model the character on him. But he’s in a race for survival, a classic struggle between the established Republican order and grassroots

Democratic activist Newton Minow, who served in the Kennedy administration, appeared on Thursday with about a dozen other Illinois Democrats and independents to announce their support of Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner. Minow, 88, an attorney and President John F. Kennedy´s chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, said Rauner would be a bipartisan leader in a centrist Midwestern state. "President Kennedy once said, ´Sometimes party loyalty asks too much,´" said Minow. "I think this is one of those times. I´m a strong Democrat, but I´m taking a leave of absence from my party because Illinois is in desperate shape." Minow,

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney denied on Thursday a television news reporter´s day-old claim that reporters often ´provide the questions to him in advance,´ before his daily briefings, and that he sometimes provides answers on paper before taking the podium. WIthin hours, the Phoenix reporter at the center of a quick-drying controversy admitted she got the whole thing wrong.

WARRENTON, Va. — Rachel "Bunny" Mellon left a small island to the Massachusetts Audubon Society, a library to an unspecified charity, jewelry to a former first daughter, and $20 million in cash along with artwork and real estate to Stacy B. Lloyd III, her son by her first marriage. But the widow of philanthropist Paul Mellon who died Monday at age 103 left nothing to Pittsburgh institutions. That´s presumably because Mr. Mellon, her second husband, bequeathed millions to his hometown when he died at 91 in 1999.Instead, Mrs. Mellon directed her fortune to descendants and to East Coast charities including

Basketball star Kobe Bryant says President Barack Obama’s hoops game is good enough to get him on the Lakers’ roster. “Yes, he could actually,” Bryant told Dan Patrick, a radio DJ. “I’m not dissing the current roster that we have,” Bryan said March 19. “It is more a sign of respect for the skill that the president possesses,” he explained. Bryant’s sincerity or his professional judgement, however, may be incomplete. Last April, Obama played a picked game, but only made 2 of 22 shots, much to the embarrassment of everyone involved. That’s only 9 percent of the videotaped shots. “Miss. Miss.

Twelve days after the flight disappeared en route to Beijing, Sara Bajc told ABC News she is "cautiously pessimistic" as she waits to find out whether debris found in the southern part of the Indian Ocean may be from the missing Boeing 777. "I am prepared to find him," Bajc said. "And I am prepared to find he is not with us anymore. I am a little less prepared to not know. The risk of not knowing is

Take a trip back in time for a tour of bustling Chicago at the peak of the 1940s. This rare colour footage showing the Windy City some 70 years ago, was discovered by chance at an estate sale in the Auburn Gresham district by professional film and video colorist Jeff Altman.

WASHINGTON— Lawrence E. Walsh, the special prosecutor who spent six years investigating misconduct by President Ronald Reagan administration officials in the Iran-Contra affair, has died. He was 102. He died Wednesday at his home in Oklahoma City following a brief illness, according to his family. In a distinguished legal career, Walsh was a highly successful Wall Street lawyer who served as a federal judge, president of the American Bar Association and as the No. 2 official at the Justice Department in the Eisenhower administration.

The words came out of my mouth before I could stop them. “I feel sorry for Obama,” I said. As my wife looked at me in disbelief, I quickly added a correction. “Well, almost.” Beset by failures at home and abroad, the president cuts a lonely and sad figure these days. His aura of grief reflects his profound loss. His worldview crashed headlong into reality, and reality won. Obamaism is dead, may it rest in peace. That’s sad for him, but hold the tears — his loss is mankind’s hope. If Obama wakes from his utopian visions and faces the

Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

Secretary of State John Kerry called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday morning to protest insults the Israeli defense minister directed at the Obama administration this week, the State Department said. In a speech at Tel Aviv University on Monday, Moshe Ya’alon criticized President Obama for having a weak foreign policy, and said Israel could no longer rely on the United States to lead nuclear negotiations with Iran. “Secretary Kerry spoke with Prime Minister Netanyahu this morning.

Has President Obama´s impunity come to an end? After five years of his flouting the letter and spirit of the law in an increasingly brazen fashion, congressional Republicans have been starting to ramp up their rhetoric about Obama´s lawlessness, their most concerted effort on the issue to date. Several new reports from top Republicans underscore the breadth of Obama´s executive overreach. Viewed comprehensively, it involves laws ranging from healthcare to immigration to privacy to technology to social issues to national security matters and more. Scandals like Benghazi, Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, NSA spying, CIA

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015. The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but

Government officials now admit the data system and transponder quit communicating after the pilots said things were OK. That means they didn’t lie. The official Malaysian account of the last contacts made to and received by Flight MH370 is unraveling. As it does, the sinister interpretations of what happened in the cockpit of the Boeing 777 become less persuasive. We return to the all-important timeline. Originally, the Malaysians said that the last words from the cockpit—from the copilot, “All right, good night”—were spoken to air traffic controllers as the airplane left Malaysian air space at 1:30am. This week, that timing was significantly changed

Ellen DeGeneres was a completely slavish toady to President Obama as he appeared on her show to sell Obamacare -- not to young people, but to mothers. The president made his pitch to "especially all the moms out there who may have young people – 26, 27, do not have health insurance, but they think they’re invincible and nothing’s ever going to happen to ‘em – what we’ve said is you never know what life is going to throw at ya."
