Adam Levine, James Corden Pulled Over by Cops During Carpool Karaoke

Adam Levine, James Corden Pulled Over by Cops During Carpool Karaoke
James Corden was finding it, ahem, a little harder to breathe when the police pulled him over during Carpool Karaoke with Adam Levine.

The Late Late Show host was joined by the Voice coach on Thursday, where they made their way through much of the Maroon 5 songbook… sans members two through five. (It’s five of ’em, right? There’s the guitarist with the long hair and then, umm… those other guys.) Among the setlist was “This Love,” “Moves Like Jagger,” “Sugar” and “She Will Be Loved,” the last of which was interrupted when the cops stopped them for creating a traffic hazzard.

Jim Jefferies Reveals the Secret Behind Brad Pitt’s Weatherman Appearances

Jim Jefferies Reveals the Secret Behind Brad Pitt’s Weatherman Appearances
Jim Jefferies has a secret to tell about Brad Pitt. The movie actor has shown up several times on Comedy Central’s “The Jim Jefferies Show” as its unofficial weatherman, casually sharing the horrors of climate change. But here’s the truth: Pitt hasn’t dropped by in a year.

“This is the one that went viral, even though it was recorded a year ago,” Jefferies said of a recent Brad Pitt segment. The show had leftover footage of Brad doing a LeBron James joke, which felt timely because of the NBA playoffs. Slayer guitarist Kerry King happened to be on set, so they put him in front of a green screen, and it looked like the musician was a fan trying to talk to him.

“And then Gayle King is on the news going, ‘Wow, Brad Pitt must really love Jim Jefferies, he’s back on the show!’ I

Which NCIS La Cast Members Will Have the Most Success When the Show Ends?

No one could’ve predicted that the spinoff to one of America’s most beloved show, NCIS, would make a name for its own. When it was first announced that Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J were to star together in this show, people were doubtful that they’d even have the chemistry to pull it off. After one season, they’ve convinced us all as if they’d been doing it forever. With 10 seasons under it’s belt and still going strong, NCIS L.A. has become a favorite all on its own.

The Evolution of Scott Caan from Varsity Blues to Today

Remember when Scott Caan played Tweeder in Varsity Blues? He was a pill-popping, womanizing, football-playing animal that had no problem just letting everything hang out, sometimes literally, and was perhaps the most fun character in the movie. Tweeder was the guy that just didn’t care, he was going to get messed up and do some crazy stuff whether people wanted him to or not. And he, like every guy on the football team, was protected by the unseen shield that was his athletic involvement. In other words he couldn’t be touched unless he did something so unforgivable that Coach Kilmer

These Are the 100 Most-Watched TV Shows of the 2017-18 Season: Winners and Losers

If there was a recurring theme during the recent broadcast network upfronts, it was this: Ratings must die. “We are in a new era of media and it’s time to retire the Nielsen television metric,” Turner president David Levy said. “While it undoubtedly served its purpose, it no longer fully captures how to successfully measure an audience in today’s landscape.”

Of course, complaining about Nielsen and traditional ratings is nothing new. And these days, virtually every outlet has embraced its own version of multi-platform program measurement — including TV, DVR, VOD and streaming viewership. Levy pointed to audience targeting and other methods as better ways of selling their wares. At the NBCUniversal upfront, ad sales chairman Linda Yaccarino pushed the company’s new “CFlight” metric.

“I still cannot believe I have to get up this stage and talk about legacy measurement,” Yaccarino said, dismissing the current “C3” standard (which

If You Miss “Unsolved Mysteries” Here are Five Shows Worth Watching

It’s easy to believe that a lot of people can remember settling in for a new episode of Unsolved Mysteries featuring Robert Stack as the host. The show ran from 1987 to 2002 after being billed as a series of specials that were hosted by Raymond Burr, Karl Malden, and Stack. It wasn’t until 1988 that it became a fully-fledged TV series though, with Stack as the only host. It ran for nine seasons on NBC until the show moved to CBS for the 10th season. They tried to add Virginia Madsen as a co-host but that went nowhere quickly

What is the Cast of “Dukes of Hazzard” up to Today?

Now anyone that tells me they don’t know who the Dukes of Hazzard are is obviously too young to remember or just hasn’t been brought up right since this ensemble cast was something of a legend back in the day. You might say that they were a benchmark of a lot of people’s youth that seems almost sinful to forget since they were constantly there whether it be new and upcoming shows or reruns that people could sit and enjoy. The Duke boys were always good for an adventure, a laugh, or just some good old mayhem when it came
