“My wife, foreseeing all of this, tried to tell the network. She said, ‘I don’t think this is going to work, I’m afraid. She agreed to do the show for the “American Idol” brand, she’s been a longtime fan of the series, but she did not want the feud to become “a thing.” “‘This is going to turn into one of those reality shows, I didn’t sign up to be on “Love And Hip Hop.”

I don’t watch much tv, so when I stumble upon a program that I like I am all in. This is exactly how I feel about Starz “Magic City”. From the first episode I was hooked, and now we have a look at the second season dropping this summer. And if you look close you will probably catch a glimpse of Rick Ross.
As many of you know The Game will be back for its 6th season on BET this winter. The cast along with Creators Mara Brok Akil & Salim Akil took a picture to celebrate the taping of its 100th episode. Most notably missing his Tia Mowery who decided to leave the show to pursue other interests. This is one show we like to check out here at UML.

Utah NBC affiliate doesn’t want to air the new show ‘The New Normal’.
According to EW, a Utah NBC affiliate, the same station that refused to air The Playboy Club last year, will not air Ryan Murphy’s new sitcom, The New Normal. The New Normal is about a happy gay couple who hire a midwestern waitress to act as their baby surrogate. KSL-TV believes that the content and dialogue is “excessively rude.”
Now, I’m not sure what KSL-TV believes is excessively rude about The New Normal, unless it’s the very existence of gays and their damned insistence on RUDELY talking about being gay. I’ve seen the pilot, and there’s little objectionable about it, unless they’re referring to the mild swipe at Republicans, the frequent sappiness, the attempt to duplicate the gay couple from Modern Family, or the sassy black woman stereotype. THAT’S IT. THE MORMONS HATE SASSY BLACK WOMAN STEREOTYPES.
“For our brand, this program feels inappropriate on several dimensions, especially during family viewing time,” said Jeff Simpson of Bonneville International.
Bonneville International, which owns KSL-TV is owned itself by the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. GLAAD also weighed in.
“Same-sex families are a beloved part of American television thanks to shows like Modern Family,Glee and Grey’s Anatomy,” said President Herndon Graddick in a statement. “While audiences, critics and advertisers have all supported lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender stories, KSL is demonstrating how deeply out of touch it is with the rest of the country.”
The Alliance for Sassy Black Women (ASBW) also weighed into the controversy, taking the station to task for their opposition to hilarious stereotypes.
“Oh No You Di’nt. Listen, Mormon man, I don’t care if you know all the lyrics to ‘Who Let the Dogs Out.’ You better R-E-S-P-E-C-T me. The Sassy Black Woman stereotype has been around for decades, and we ain’t about to let some billionaire with magic underwear and a $5 haircut destroy what we’ve worked so hard to build. OH HELL NO.”
Cam and Mitchell from the ABC sitcom Modern Family also had this to say on the matter:
“We find it offensive that a Mormon-owned television station would refuse to carry a program that features a happy, loving gay couple trying to have a child. However, we find it even more objectionable that Ryan Murphy would try to hone in on territory. We made gay marriage palatable to middle Americans, and how dare Ryan Murphy exploit the market we’ve created.”
Twitter looks to be expanding their social network empire to include online reality shows.
The San Francisco, Calif.-based company, along with multiple Hollywood producers and network execs, are in serious talks about the possibility of launching several original video series via Twitter, according to sources. One project in particular could debut this year, potentially as early as the fall, said sources with knowledge of the discussions. Twitter, they said, has been actively pitching a select group of advertisers on a video series that would live on Twitter and enable users to participate in real time in some fashion.
Twitter declined to comment.
The original series has been described by sources as similar to MTV reality shows The Real World and The Hills; in fact, one of the producers behind The Hills is said to be behind the project. Per sources, the show could live on a standalone Twitter page similar to the events page that Twitter launched in partnership with Nascar in June, although the series’ page would more closely resemble a microsite in order to feature an expanded video player. Another possibility is that the series would be distributed within tweets—promoted, organic or pinned to a brand’s Twitter page—with users clicking to expand the tweet into a full-fledged video player.
Jennifer Lopez told Ryan Seacrest that the time has come for her to leave American Idol after 2 years.
“It just started feeling like it’s a lot. Something had to give. You’re going to make me cry. I honestly feel the time has come to get back to do what I do. I have put it on hold because I love Idol so much. You have a lot of other responsibilities and other things you want to do.”
Not surprised at all. Seems like she may have just used AI to jump-start her career. In about 5 minutes she will hold a conference saying she is returning.
