Former FBI director James Comey was no match for country music on Sunday evening — ABC saw strong ratings with the airing of Comey’s revelatory interview but didn’t win the night, according to data from Nielsen.
Comey’s interview on a special edition of “20/20” scored 9.8 million viewers, finishing behind the second hour (10 p.m.) of the Academy of Country Music Awards on CBS. The ceremony drew 11.5 million viewers.
John Oliver is the superfan who placed the now-notorious high bid on Russell Crowe’s “Cinderella Man” jockstrap.
He also bought a bunch of other “pointless Russell Crowe memorabilia” from the actor’s bizarre “Art of Divorce” auction a few weeks ago — and he’s offering it to a Blockbuster Video store.
In the final segment of Sunday’s “Last Week Tonight,” after talking about President Trump, corporate taxes and MSNBC host Ari Melber’s penchant for hip-hop lyrics, Oliver turned his attention to that store, one of Alaska’s most endangered resources.
The lawsuit alleges that Olivarez — a former business associate of Lee’s daughter Joan “J.C.” Lee — manipulated Lee into ousting his “banker of 26 years” and his longtime lawyer, signing power of attorney over to Olivarez, loaning $300,000 to a fake nonprofit and buying an $850,000 West Hollywood condo. Olivarez is also accused in the lawsuit of taking nearly $1.4 million from Lee’s accounts “through a series of complicated wire-transfers all initiated” by him and orchestrating a scheme to steal Lee’s blood for use as a “merchandising item.”
Executives are insane in this business, and actors are insane, because we are all held responsible for things we really have no power over. Once you step back from it, then you can kind of enjoy the craziness.
As long as you keep singing, your voice gets better as you get older. But if you quit, you won't be able to sing. I've heard people walk on stage as they've gotten older and they couldn't sing their way out of a paper bag. I don't want to be one of them.
Huey Lewis & the News has canceled its shows for the rest of 2018 so Lewis can deal with a hearing problem.
“The doctors believe I have Meniere's disease and have agreed that I can't perform until I improve,” the 67-year-old singer said in a note tweeted out Friday. “Therefore the only prudent thing to do is cancel all future shows.”
The nearly full hearing loss happened 2 1/2 months ago, “The Power of Love” singer said, before a show in Dallas. He said he’s since been to a number of hospitals seeking care.
“The National Enquirer paid $30,000 to a former doorman to suppress his story about a possible illegitimate child President Trump may have fathered. Even crazier, this is the doorman,” Seth Meyers quipped on “Late Night,” showing a picture of a heavily pregnant doorman.
