'The X-Files' Reaches More Than 16 Million on Return - ABC News

Mulder and Scully received a big assist from the NFL in attracting more than 16 million television viewers to the premiere of their return in Fox's "The X-Files."

Fox's iconic series starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson is back for a limited run, and Fox schedulers smiled on them by booking the show directly after the NFC championship game between Arizona and Carolina. That game was seen by 45.7 million people on Sunday, the Nielsen company said.

While more people watched "NCIS" last week, "The X-Files" had more than twice as many viewers as any other scripted series among viewers aged 18-to-49, Nielsen said. That's the audience Fox cares the most about.

SNL Spoofs Oscars Diversity Controversy With Award Show Parody | E! Online

Live, from New York, the white guys are all winners.

SNL dedicated a special sketch Saturday to address a recent controversy plaguing the upcoming 2016 Oscars. Many people, including celebrities, have criticized the lack of diversity among this year's nominees and some stars, such as Spike Lee, Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith, even plan to boycott this year's event.

All the nominated actors, which include Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale and Kate Winslet, are white. The 2016 Oscars host, Chris Rock, jokingly referred to the ceremony as the "White BET Awards."

SNL's sketch depicted a fictional event called the Screen Guild Awards, which showcased all-white acting nominees who had supporting and even minuscule roles in movies with leading black actors, who did not receive nods themselves.

Golden Globes 2016 review: Was that the worst Golden Globes in ages? | EW.com

Midway through the Golden Globes, Ricky Gervais slumped toward the beer that was perched by his microphone and grumbled, “Kill me.” He might as well have been speaking for the rest of us. When was the last time the Globes were this painful to watch? The jokes weren’t funny. The winners were far more senseless than usual, even for an awards show that prides itself on erratic choices. The acceptance speeches weren’t nearly tipsy enough. Worst of all, it was boring. If ever there was a moment when we desperately needed Jacqueline Bisset to rush the stage, smacking her lips and slurring, “Go to hell and don’t come baaack!” this was it.

Wayne Rogers, Trapper John on 'M.A.S.H.,' dies at 82

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Wayne Rogers, whose Trapper John McIntyre alongside Alan Alda's Hawkeye Pierce brought mischief, martinis and meatball surgery to the masses in the 1970s every week on "M.A.S.H.," has died.

The actor was surrounded by family when he died Thursday in Los Angeles of complications from pneumonia at age 82, his publicist and longtime friend Rona Menashe told The Associated Press.

Rogers' army surgeon Trapper John was one of the most beloved characters — and half of one of the most beloved duos — in TV history, despite the actor's appearing in only the first three of the show's 11 seasons on CBS.

Trump gloats over Miss Universe mishap – POLITICO

After the wrong contestant was initially crowned Miss Universe at the annual event on Sunday night in Las Vegas, former owner Donald Trump retweeted messages calling to attention his good fortune in selling off the pageant earlier this year.

Steve Harvey, the show’s host, mistakenly read the name of Miss Colombia as the winner, when Miss Philippines had been the actual winner. It was not until Miss Colombia was already crowned and wearing the Miss Universe sash that Harvey came on stage and apologized for the mistake.

Amy Poehler, Tina Fey Return to 'Saturday Night Live' as Clinton, Palin - NBC News

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned to their old stomping grounds on Saturday to team up as co-hosts of the final 'Saturday Night Live' of 2015.

The dynamic duo — whose new movie "Sisters" opened in theaters this week — donned familiar costumes to reprise two of their most notable impressions from their time in the show's cast: Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin.

As the real Hillary Clinton was fresh off the stage at the third Democratic debate, resident 'SNL' Clinton impersonator Kate McKinnon was portraying her in a sketch. McKinnon's 2015 Clinton was joined by Poehler's 2008 version of the then-senator and presidential candidate Clinton.
