The post Tim Tebow To Become An Inspirational Stories Correspondent On ‘Good Morning America’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Now that Tim Tebow has been claimed as property of ABC/ESPN as a correspondent on ESPN‘s SEC Network (sorry for all the acronyms), the conglomerate has realized that Mr. Tebow can’t be contained by a college football conference. He needs to be mass-marketed.

So now he’s gonna be on ABC’s Good Morning America, bringing us what Deadline calls, “a wide-range of reports that motivate and inspire.”

Have we lost you yet? If so, we can’t blame you. Have a nice day. If you’re still with us, this should do the trick:

The Sentinel in Carlisle Pennsylvania  reports Tebow’s first report will be about 10-year-old Deven Jackson of Perry County, who recently played in a midget football game, three years after losing both legs to a rare illness. Tebow spent the day with Jackson and his family, and spoke to Jackson’s midget football team and the league that’s trying to raise $10K to purchase equipment for Jackson.

Go take a shower.

‘Jeopardy!’ Will Air A Sports Spinoff Online http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/jeopardy-will-air-a-sports-spinoff-online/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/jeopardy-will-air-a-sports-spinoff-online/#comments Wed, 30 Apr 2014 15:34:35 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=261342 It will be hosted by Dan Patrick. WOO-HOO!!!!

If you think people who are way too into sports are annoying…prepare to be annoyed. Jeopardy!, the seminal trivia game, will be airing a sports version, produced by Sony, and available only online. The online outlet is a rather curious one – Crackle. The free “network” that seems to skew very male with comedies and action films.

The show will be called Sports Jeopardy! and will keep the signature exclamation point, if only to remind us what a thrill answering in the form of a question is.

They’ve recruited ESPN talking head Dan Patrick to host the show, who lacks the smugness of a Alex Trebek-type, but is likable enough, so…fine.

This is the latest in a series of spinoffs for the game show, including the defunct Rock n’ Roll Jeopardy (punk as f*ck, by the way) hosted by Mark McGrath, and Jep, which was for kids on the Game Show Network.

Hehe. “Jep.” Just like all the kids say with their skateboards, malteds, and Twitters.

Wacky Box Office Study Says Movies Do Better With Women In Them http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/wacky-box-office-study-says-movies-do-better-with-women-in-them/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/wacky-box-office-study-says-movies-do-better-with-women-in-them/#comments Wed, 02 Apr 2014 16:37:34 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=260770 No way!

The post Wacky Box Office Study Says Movies Do Better With Women In Them appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Despite what we’ve seen from the box office takes of big-budget action fare, a new study has come out from Nate Silver’s blog 538 that tries to take a quantitative look at gender bias in film. The results are predicated on a film either passing or failing something called the Bechdel Test. In order to pass the Bechdel test, a film must have two women have a conversation with each other about something other than a man.

The test was circulated by cartoonist Alison Bechdel, who wanted to create a lens to view the portrayal of women in film.

The study found that films that pass the Bechdel test, and ostensibly have better-written female parts, earn more money than films that don’t. Though it doesn’t seem to make sense with recent box-office juggernauts, you can’t argue with statistics. Well, I can’t. People smarter than me can.

Tim Tebow To Remain In Our Lives As An ESPN Analyst http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/tim-tebow-to-remain-in-our-lives-as-an-espn-analyst/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/tim-tebow-to-remain-in-our-lives-as-an-espn-analyst/#comments Tue, 31 Dec 2013 22:04:33 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=258542 Pay attention, Jeremy Lin.

Tim Tebow, the Hesiman winning QB who had extremely low expectation in the NFL, then wildly exceed those expectations for a season with the Broncos, then reverted to meeting those expectations, will be leaving the field for ESPN‘s studios. This move comes as no surprise, as his pro prospects fizzled, but buzz around the sensation remained.

The 26 year-old renowned Christian will be an analyst, not for ESPN’s NFL coverage, but rather for their dedicated channel to the SEC. It doesn’t exactly sound like a golden ticket. He’ll also be making appearances on SportsCenter, because SportsCenter LOVES Tim Tebow.

It’s being reported that his contract with ESPN won’t preclude him from pursuing playing opportunities in the NFL, but his talent very well may.

If You’re Mad About Your Cable Bill, You Can Blame ESPN http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/if-youre-mad-about-your-cable-bill-you-can-blame-espn/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/if-youre-mad-about-your-cable-bill-you-can-blame-espn/#comments Tue, 06 Dec 2011 21:32:04 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=238957 ESPN knows that most men would rather slide comfortably into a cocktail dress than drop it from their cable lineup.

Bad news for non-sports fans.

According to a recent estimate, $4.69 of your monthly cable bill represents the fee subscribers pay for the rights to ESPN, which is currently the most expensive channel in basic bundles. According to the Wall Street Journal, the cost has risen a staggering 42% since 2006. The station and experts cite the rising expenses in covering sports as the reason, but it could just be because ESPN can do what they want.

While many channels are cannibalizing each other as redundant, and with many consuming their offerings online or on DVD, ESPN has a viewership that requires their programming in real time, making it perhaps the most indispensable channel on the dial.

Those who can do without sports can probably do without ESPN, so as the network‘s fees begin to rise, expect to see people clamor for a tiered service that allows them to forego the station. While this would behoove that subset of cable subscribers, it would put the additional cost burdens on sports fans who want their ESPN, probably to the tune of twice what they’re currently paying.

My solution? Stop liking sports and starting getting into scrapbooking and crafts. It’s estimated that HGTV only costs something like $.26 per month.

9 Entertainers Who Were Fired For ‘Offensive’ Statements http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-entertainers-who-were-fired-for-offensive-statements/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-entertainers-who-were-fired-for-offensive-statements/#comments Tue, 04 Oct 2011 19:53:17 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=231089 "People have to watch what they say and what they do."

Hank Williams Jr. learned the hard way that he should stick to yelling about the preparedness to watch football and not veer into politics. ESPN fired him over offensive comments comparing Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler, although the comments were actually not a direct comparison, rather a joke gone awry. But, whatever, call it karma catching up to him for wearing a hat indoors all those years. Just so help me God if he’s replaced by Kid Rock.

However, he isn’t the first to lose a plum gig after sharing controversial viewpoints. Here are nine other entertainers who were fired after speaking their mind. Sadly, none of them are Kid Rock.

Gilbert Gottfried – Aflac

Gilbert Gottfried enjoyed a pretty cake stint as the voice of the Aflac duck. That ended in March of 2011 when he tweeted jokes about the Japanese tsunami disaster. He later apologized and erased the tweets, but Aflac (who does 75% of their business in Japan) weren’t laughing. He was dismissed quickly and the search for a new duck voice began.

Madonna – Pepsi

You know what Pepsi doesn’t like associated with their brand? Burning crosses. Go figure. After pressure from religious groups, Pepsi stopped airing its commercial starring Madonna and featuring her song “Like a Prayer.” However, they probably shouldn’t have likened their product to a religious experience in the first place.

Megan Fox – Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Although she proved herself quite adept at raising her ass in the air while lying across automobiles, Megan Fox found out how replaceable she is when she compared director Michael Bay to Hitler. Seems that didn’t sit too well with executive producer Steven Spielberg and Fox was not invited back for the third film in the series. It’s a shame too because that’s the only film that kinda almost made some sense.

The NFL is back, and not a moment too soon. I’ve been running out of excuses for spending my Sundays piss drunk at a bar shoving fried food down my throat. But from now until February, NFL football will enable me to act like the pig I truly am. The problem is this: when you’re near blacked out by halftime of the early game, it can be hard to remember what channel is covering the late game. Well, we’ve got you covered. Below you’ll find a guide containing all the info you’ll need.

Here’s where you can find the games this season:

NBC

The season kicked off last night when the last two Superbowl champs, the Packers and the Saints, met at Lambeau Field, and the whole affair was broadcast on NBC. Going forward, the network will also broadcast the Sunday night games, beginning with the Dallas Cowboys facing the New York Jets on September 11th. Al Michaels hosts the play-by-play while Cris Collinsworth fills in the color commentary. Bob Costas, Dan Patrick, Tony Dungy, Rodney Harrison, and Peter King report live from the game and handle pregame hosting duties.

ESPN

Monday nights belong to ESPN once again. This year, get ready for some football when the New England Patriots head to South Florida to square off against the Miami Dolphins on September 12th. Mike Tirico is on play-by-play and Jon Gruden and Ron Jaworski provide color commentary. Additional reporting comes from Suzy Kolber.

FOX

FOX is the station that you’ll do a good majority of your screaming at on Sundays this fall. Joe Buck and Troy Aikman will host the broadcasts of the NFC regional regular season games as well as the NFC playoffs. Curt Menefee hosts the pregame with in-studio analysts Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Jimmy Johnson, and Michael Strahan. Pregame and sideline reporting duties  will be covered by Pam Oliver.

 CBS

And you can catch the AFC regular season games as well as the AFC playoffs on Sunday afternoons on CBS. James Brown hosts with play-by-play from Jim Nantz, Marv Albert, Craig Bolerjack, Don Criqui, Spero Dedes, Ian Eagle, Greg Gumbel, Kevin Harlan, Bill Macatee. Studio analysts are Phil Simms, Charley Casserly, Bill Cowher, Boomer Esiason, Dan Marino, and Shannon Sharpe.

NFL Network

You’d better get yourself a satellite dish if you want to catch the Thursday night games. Rich Eisen, Steve Mariucci, Deion Sanders, and Marshall Faulk report live with contributions from  Kara Henderson and Michelle Beisner. Brad Nessler is on play-by-play and Mike Mayock is analyst starting this season. Beginning in Week 10, NFL Network will begin showing Thursday games with Oakland making the long trek to San Diego. Just hope that you don’t get heavy rain or sunspots in your area.

Norm MacDonald Developing Sports Show for Comedy Central http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/norm-macdonald-developing-sports-show-for-comedy-central/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/norm-macdonald-developing-sports-show-for-comedy-central/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Does the crappy screen shot above look familiar? It should. It's Norm MacDonald hosting the 1998 ESPY awards for ESPN. His performance insulted so many athletes that he was never asked to return, but it's still one of the funniest, bravest performances you'll ever see. Now, over ten years later, Norm is returning to the world of sports with his own sports-talk show on Comedy Central. The show would be a satirical look at the sports world. On board with MacDonald is Daniel Kellison, a veteran TV producer whose credits include ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “The Man Show,” according to person familiar with the project… I know some people (like our friends at Warming Glow) are afraid Norm isn't a good fit as a talk show host. And I see their point. But if he can manage to create a show that's half as funny as the following clip, it will still be hilarious. (Show Tracker) Watch norm insult everyone at the 1998 ESPY Awards after the jump...

Does the crappy screen shot above look familiar? It should. It’s Norm MacDonald hosting the 1998 ESPY awards for ESPN. His performance insulted so many athletes that he was never asked to return, but it’s still one of the funniest, bravest performances you’ll ever see.

Now, over ten years later, Norm is returning to the world of sports with his own sports-talk show on Comedy Central.

The show would be a satirical look at the sports world. On board with MacDonald is Daniel Kellison, a veteran TV producer whose credits include ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “The Man Show,” according to person familiar with the project…

I know some people (like our friends at Warming Glow) are afraid Norm isn’t a good fit as a talk show host. And I see their point. But if he can manage to create a show that’s half as funny as the following clip, it will still be hilarious. (Show Tracker)

Watch norm insult everyone at the 1998 ESPY Awards after the jump…

‘The Hangover’ Funded Mike Tyson’s Drug Habit http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-hangover-funded-mike-tysons-drug-habit/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-hangover-funded-mike-tysons-drug-habit/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 The Playlist has alerted us to an interview with Mike Tyson that is as candid as you'd expect from the man who once threatened to "f*ck you until you love him." It all came about when Mike wandered into a Las Vegas radio station unexpectedly after a trip to the dentist. If you're familiar with David After The Dentist, you know that you're in for a treat. Here are some of my favorite parts. On The Hangover: “I was doing that to supply my drug habit. I’m sorry I’m coming at you guys like this… I said, ‘Wow, This is going to be really good. We’re going to sell this stuff on 42nd street on bootleg and make a lot of money.’ This is my best thinking on drugs… It wasn’t that way. It was an international success." On becoming a Vegan: “I became a Vegan. Vegan is where no animal products. No livestock products. Nothing." On his slow-transformation to vampirism: "My personal life is so isolated right now. I don’t go anywhere unless I’m invited." (except for when he wanders into radio stations of course. - Ed.) And on the arduous task of wiping one's butt when weighing 350 lbs: “It was hard to wipe my butt… I was sweating like some kind of guy from a moon project or something." Awesome. MTV needs to find a way to get him into the "Jersey Shore" house. (ESPN Radio)

De Niro to Grimace and Squint as ‘Lombardi’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/de-niro-to-grimace-and-squint-as-lombardi/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/de-niro-to-grimace-and-squint-as-lombardi/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Following in the footsteps of Brian Dennehy and Craig T. Nelson, Robert De Niro has signed on to play an iconic coach in the ESPN Films biopic Lombardi. Arguably the greatest coach in NFL history, Vince Lombardi led the Green Bay Packers to two Superbowl and five league championship wins. I should also mention dude could burp the entire alphabet... backwards. Doesn't sound too impressive to you, but in Wisconsin that is a godlike ability.The film, to be written by Eric Roth (Forrest Gump), will focus on the 8 years that Lombardi spent with the Packers, molding them into NFL champs. Very little time will be spent on his epic belching. (THR)
