  1. The deal will see the short-form digital content showcased on HBO Now, HBO Go and other platforms. Also included in the pact is a first-look option for other film and TV ventures. The first HBO project will see the Daily Show alum work with cloud-graphics company OTOY, Inc. to develop new technology to allow Stewart to produce timely short-form digital content, which will be refreshed on HBO Now multiple times throughout the day. Additional projects will be announced as they are confirmed. "Jon Stewart led a revolution that changed the face of TV comedy on the Daily Show," said HBO programming president Michael Lombardo in a release announcing the news Tuesday. “He graced our network nearly 20 years ago, so we’re thrilled to welcome back his immense talents in this next chapter of his career.” Added Stewart: “Appearing on television 22 minutes a night clearly broke me. I’m pretty sure I can produce a few minutes of content every now and again.” The gig marks Stewart's first pact since stepping down from The Daily Show earlier this year after a 16-year run. The Comedy Central series recently won three Emmys, including variety series talk. During his run, the show received 23 Emmys and two Peabody Awards. Stewart is a two-time Oscar host, and he wrote the best-selling book Naked Pictures of Famous People and co-authored the best-selling books America (The Book): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction and Earth (The Book): A Visitor’s Guide to the Human Race. He wrote and directed the 2014 feature film Rosewater. The deal brings Stewart back to HBO, where he previously had a stand-up special, Jon Stewart: Unleavened, and hosted George Carlin: 40 Years of Comedy and Mr. Show With Bob and David and had a recurring role on The Larry Sanders Show. For HBO, the Stewart deal comes as the premium cabler recently signed pacts with Bill Simmons, a Vice daily show and Sesame Street. Stewart joins John Oliver, who had filled in for him while he was filming Rosewater, at HBO. Source TL;DR: He basically signed a deal with HBO to produce short form content, once in a while. Most likely he will do special reports and things of that nature.
  2. It's just a matter of time now....
  3. NBC is closing the book on Hannibal. The network has canceled Bryan Fuller's Silence of the Lambs prequel series after three seasons. The full 13-episode third season will run its course on Thursdays at 10 p.m., concluding Sept. 3. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that there may have been a rights issue at the center of the decision to end the series as Fuller had wanted to introduce Clarice Starling in season four, with the rights to the character previously portrayed by Jodie Foster said to be unavailable. Producers Gaumont TV are currently exploring options to find another home for the series. “NBC has allowed us to craft a television series that no other broadcast network would have dared, and kept us on the air for three seasons despite Cancelation Bear Chow ratings and images that would have shredded the eyeballs of lesser Standards & Practices enforcers," Fuller said in a statement. "[NBC Entertainment exec] Jen Salke and her team have been fantastic partners and creatively supportive beyond measure. Hannibal is finishing his last course at NBC’s table this summer, but a hungry cannibal can always dine again. And personally, I look forward to my next meal with NBC.” Added NBC in a statement: “We have been tremendously proud of Hannibal over its three seasons. Bryan and his team of writers and producers, as well as our incredible actors, have brought a visual palette of storytelling that has been second to none in all of television — broadcast or cable. We thank [producers] Gaumont and everyone involved in the show for their tireless efforts that have made Hannibal an incredible experience for audiences around the world.”
  4. Trevor Noah will take over the Daily Show Trevor Noah, 31, the South African comedian who is an on-air contributor on the show, will take the seat of Stewart, the longtime host who is signing off later this year. "It's an honor to follow Jon Stewart," Noah said in a statement. "In my brief time with the show they've made me feel so welcome. I'm excited to get started and work with such a fantastic group of people." Latest reports had Noah as the frontrunner for the position, and on Monday the comedy network confirmed those rumors. "Trevor Noah is an enormous talent," said Comedy Central president Michele Ganeless in a statement. "For the next host of 'The Daily Show,' we set out to find a fresh voice who can speak to our audience with a keen take on the events of the day, and we found that in Trevor." Read More:
  5. Gillian Anderson is currently doing 3 TV series and David Duchovny is doing 1 plus a book tour. I think they don't have the time to do a 20+ season. Plus I think the writting quality would be better with fewer episodes.
  6. X-Files returns to TV after 13 years off the air David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will reprise their roles as agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully in a just-confirmed reboot of The X-Files, Fox Broadcasting Company says. The popular sci-fi series went off the air 13 years ago, taking with it its strange stories of unexplained paranormal drama. But the cult classic will return to Fox with a limited series of six new episodes, the show's creator Chris Carter revealed in a statement on Tuesday. The Vancouver-shot show, which centred on Mulder and Scully's investigations into mysterious FBI cases, or "X-Files," won multiple Emmy awards in its nine seasons and inspired two spinoff films. It also proved to be a major breakout hit for Fox. "The X-Files was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture," said Dana Walden and Gary Newman, chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. "I think of it as a 13-year commercial break," said Carter. "The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories." "Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as The X-Files, and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they've been waiting for.” Production on the new X-Files series is slated to begin this summer. It's not clear if the production will return to Vancouver, or if other popular characters, like William B. Davis's Smoking Man will return in the revived show.
  7. Sad day in satirical news. He probably wants to go direct more movies but I'd rather see him behind the Daily Show desk. At least John Oliver is kicking ass and will be there to fill the void. The rumor of Amy Poehler taking over sounds like a great idea even though it's just a rumor. John Hodgman would be good too. Who do you guys want to see take over?
  8. He's a smart, crude buisness man. His demenure is very marketable and he plays up to it. Look at Simon Cowel, Donald Trump, Bill O'Reilly.... controversial tv personality arn't liked and are assholes, but they are entertaining and they make loads of money.

  14. I havn't read any of the books and I started watching this show last week and just saw the last two episodes tonight. Wow my mind is blown, did not expect that. They better win all the emmy awards.
