Cord cutting triumph: Pay TV industry hit with record subscriber losses

The traditional pay TV bundle is slowly dying. New data released by research firm SNL Kagan this week showed that pay TV services lost a total of 625,000 subscribers last quarter, which is the largest quarterly loss in the industry’s history. While the pay TV industry typically loses subscribers in the second calendar quarter ever year, this year’s losses absolutely dwarfed the 352,000 net customer loss that pay TV services posted in Q2 2014.

Amazon deal: Get multi-room HDTV without paying bogus fees for another cable box

We recently told you how to fight back against your ISP by purchasing your own modem instead of paying ridiculous fees each month to rent one. Well, the same applies with your cable or satellite box, but they’re typically much more expensive and more difficult to come by. For a limited time, however, Amazon is offering a solid deal on an alternative solution that won’t be a good fit for everyone, but it’ll definitely get the job done for many users. More →

Look, you can argue all you want, but the fact of the matter is that Samsung makes the best HDTVs in the world. Sure, Sony’s HDTVs have great picture quality. Yes, LG’s HDTVs feature wonderful designs. But pound for pound, there’s just nothing on the market that can compete with Samsung’s top televisions… and now there’s a great deal on Amazon for one of them. More →

Stephen Colbert’s fear: That Trump will drop out of the race too soon

Stephen Colbert’s fear: That Trump will drop out of the race too soon

Everyone thought that Donald Trump’s presidential campaign would be snuffed out before the race could begin in earnest. Everyone thought that his past, mired in bankruptcies and indefensible statements, would sink him before he could even climb aboard.

Everyone was wrong.

Donald Trump is, to this day, performing incredibly well in the polls, stomping Jeb Bush, Scott Walker and Marco Rubio from sea to shining sea, but Stephen Colbert just hopes he can last at least a few more weeks. More →

In fact, the schedule is looking pretty thin until the fall premieres start landing next month, but on Monday, three upcoming pilots leaked on to torrent sites weeks in advance of their scheduled debuts.

True Detective Season 2 Review

Review: ‘True Detective’ season 2 caved under the pressure of topping season 1

Review: ‘True Detective’ season 2 caved under the pressure of topping season 1

By on August 10, 2015 at 12:11 PM.

Somewhere, deep within season 2 of True Detective, there was a show worth watching.

There was a coherent plot, there was a consistent tone, there were characters whom we cared about — but none of those elements made it to the screen. What we got instead was an overwritten script, an unnecessary number of secondary and tertiary characters and another mystery with a vapid, unsatisfying conclusion.

Watch Jon Stewart tear up at Stephen Colbert’s heartfelt tribute

Last night marked the end of an era as Jon Stewart said goodbye as host of The Daily Show after 17 years.

For Stewart’s final appearance, Colbert returned to the show and paid an impromptu tribute to the man who gave him his start in the fake TV news business. More →

Marvel fans rejoice: A live-action X-Men series may soon become a reality on Fox

Earlier this year, Fox announced that it was interested in bringing the X-Men franchise to television. Fox entertainment chairman Gary Newman said at the time that he was “cautiously optimistic” about the deal with Marvel, but that it would still be a while before the studio turned its focus to the creative side of things.

On Thursday, our interest was reignited when Fox Television Group chairman and CEO Dana Walden told The Hollywood Reporter that an agreement might be right around the corner. More →
