Kevin Kline Hosts Stephen Colbert's Billionaire 'The Donating Game' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 30th 2011 4:45AM
Kevin Kline, 'The Colbert Report'Stephen Colbert was already raking in unlimited funds via his Super PAC, but he had to disclose his donors, which was limiting the potential for corporate contributions. So his lawyer found another loophole on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central).

He can set up a shell company which can take anonymous donations from anyone, including corporations or billionaires, and then the shell company can donate to his Super PAC so it's untraceable.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 5

by Erin Martell, posted Oct 23rd 2007 12:23AM

Marie Osmond(S05E10) Tom opened the show with the promise that this week's performances would be the sexiest of the season. In what had to have been a shout-out to Edyta, he said "Let's not waste time or fabric." He was certainly right about showing skin. Several of the celebrities and the pros were scantily clad--lots of open shirts from the men and gravity-defying cleavage from the ladies. I caught a glimpse of Tori Spelling in the audience. Those West Beverly alumni are a tight-knit group, aren't they? We're at a good point in the show--very little dead weight, and a lot of the celebrities are showing considerable progress.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 4 results

Cameron & Edyta - Dancing With The Stars(S05E09)Tom opened the show talking about a night where controversy rocked the ballroom. I wouldn't call it so much rocking, as I would annoying, but that's just me. It does appear that some of that will be put to rest now. Len made a point of praising the pros for their excellent work, but warned them that he didn't want to see any more lifts. From here on out, they will incur a penalty from the judges.

They went right to the recap after that. Mark was really happy to be called the little engine that could. Floyd talked about his new experience, calling ballroom dancing better than hip-hop. Mel took the truck driver comment in good stride, asking for the truck driver vote. Jane was left trying to defend the lift again. Jenny ignored that lift nonsense and said she looks forward to continuing to improve. Cameron was excited about his three nines. As you would expect, Sabrina was thrilled to have the first perfect score of the competition.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 4

Jennie Garth and Derek Hough - Dancing With The Stars(S05E08) I have to say, considering that we are only to week four, I'm really impressed with the level of the dancing this season. As the show kicked off, Tom announced that last week was the highest scored week three in the history of the show, and week four kept the ball rolling. We even saw our first perfect 30 of the season. If that wasn't enough, Samantha Harris is back from maternity leave, and didn't miss a beat.

Things weren't all rosy though. Carrie Ann made it her personal crusade to annoy the crap out of everyone in her new role as the lift police. If you have watched the show over the last couple seasons, it's something that has come up before. And every time, it leaves me wondering just why they have that rule. It's not a competition sanctioned by anyone other than ABC, so that can't be it. To protect the dancers? They let Monique jump 12 feet, backwards, off of the stage. It makes debating whether or not a heel was half an inch off of the stage seem a little silly. I'm actually all for doing away with the rule and getting on with the dancing. Anyway, a rundown of all the performances after the jump.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 3

by Erin Martell, posted Oct 9th 2007 9:05AM

Jennie Garth(S05E06) This week's episode was quite the emotional roller coaster, wasn't it? Tears, comebacks, fake hair, a bare-chested Maks--all in 90 minutes! Tom opened the show by noting that this season's cast has logged more hours of training in the show's entire history, which is encouraging. Drew Lachey was back again for more awkward small talk and poorly articulated jokes. He did this really dorky dance next to Tom which proved that you can forget months of dance training like that.

A few things caught my eye during the introductions. Maksim brought back his trademark vest-only look; Jane Seymour was wearing a wig; Mark Cuban was, thankfully, wearing sleeves; and, Wayne had fake hair on both his head and face.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 2 results

Helio Castroneves and Julianne Hough - Dancing WIth The Stars(S05E05) Tom opened the show by referring to performance night as the ultimate face off, as all eleven couples took the stage together for the first time. That's a bit of hyperbole, to be sure, but he moved on quickly to the more important point. That being the fact that two of the stars have separated themselves from the pack and taken the lead.

As we sit now, Helio and Sabrina are way out in front, but it's way too early to call the competition. That pesky little detail called the fan base has a way of wreaking havoc on the best laid plans. Would it rear it's head in week two? So early in the competition? Quite possibly, but we can't be spoiling all of that before the jump. Click the link for all the details from the week two results show.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 2

jennie garth and derek hough dancing with the stars

(S05E04) The stars are back for week two, and it's what I usually find to be one of my favorite weeks. The nerves and the pressure of the unknown are so hard to overcome in that first appearance, that week two is where much ground can be gained based on nothing more than a little confidence. As we would see tonight, that, as much as anything, is what is still holding a few of our stars back. Tom opened the show with a quick recap of last week, reminding everyone that Josie is no longer in the competition. But with eleven couples to dance, there was no time to dawdle, so on with the show.

Dan Rather's new show starts November 14

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 26th 2006 2:45PM

Dan RatherAfter newsman Dan Rather left was fired from was forced out of departed CBS after four decades plus, a lot of people had no idea what the hell he was going to do. But then came news that he had signed on to Mark Cuban's HDNet, and now comes word that Rather's show will start on November 14 at 8pm.

It will be a news show called Dan Rather Reports, with Rather as the anchor, and will feature three segments: the war, a focus on the middle class, and politics. In other words, it sounds a lot like other news shows, but I guess the secret is in how they'll do it.

And to answer the next question you have, no, he really hasn't seen what Katie Couric is doing in his new seat. He's been too busy.

Mark Cuban talks about YouTube - VIDEO

by Brett Love, posted Sep 30th 2006 4:33PM
Mark Cuban was speaking to a group of advertisers in New York on Thursday, and the subject of YouTube came up. In typical blog maverick style, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and co-founder of HDNET told everyone exactly what he thinks of the online video sharing site. In this article from C|net, Cuban asserts that the people behind YouTube are "just breaking the law." He goes on to say that "anyone who buys that (YouTube) is a moron."

That is the tasty sound bite bit of the story, but if you click around a bit, there is more to it. Much of this latest Mark Cuban vs. YouTube story started with a post on his personal blog titled, "The Coming Dramatic Decline of YouTube." In that entry he goes into his thoughts as to why YouTube became so popular, and what it is that he thinks is going to be the downfall of the site. Cuban boils it down to the fact that if you take away all of the copyrighted material on the site, you take away the lion's share of the YouTube traffic.
