Selena Gomez Talks About the Pressures of Being Young and Famous (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jun 17th 2011 1:20PM
Selena Gomez on 'Good Morning America'Selena Gomez already had a high profile of her own, starring in Disney's 'The Wizards of Waverly Place,' working on a burgeoning film career, and touring as a singer. Add the fact that she's dating young superstar Just Bieber, and life can get a bit frantic, as she explained Friday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). Gomez, who turns 19 in July, said she has already wasted too much time worrying about it.

Gomez was asked how she handles all of the scrutiny. "I'm young," she said, "and I spent the first three years hiding and terrified of things like that. So I'm just sort of enjoying being young and just having fun and focusing on my fans and my music."

New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 14th 2009 6:01PM
Star TrekHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I think I might have asked this question before, but I'll ask it again: just how many Star Trek (original series) sets are there? There seems to be a new one released every few months. I know there are Blu-ray sets being released now, but at what point does even the most die-hard Trek fan say enough is enough and they're not going to buy any more? A friend of mine loves Star Trek and seems to buy every new version of the show that comes out.

'Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie' Draws 11.4 Million Viewers

by Andrew Scott, posted Aug 31st 2009 11:00AM
Wizards of Waverly Place The Movie 11.4 million viewersDisney Channel's next princess has officially been crowned.

The network's Friday night premiere of 'Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie,' starring Selena Gomez, averaged 11.4 million viewers, with 4.5 million in the kids 6-11 demo and 4.0 million in tweens 9-14. That makes it the most-watched cable program of 2009, topping 'Jon & Kate Plus 8''s separation episode in June (10.6 million viewers).

Even better news for Disney: The 'Wizards' movie is now the second-highest-rated entertainment telecast over the past two years, according to Variety. 'High School Musical 2' is first with 17.2 million. An August 2007 episode of 'Hannah Montana' (10.7 million) and 'Wizards on Deck With Hannah Montana' (9.3 million) rank third and fourth, respectively.

The Wizards of Waverly Place movie casts the biggest ratings spell of the year

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 30th 2009 5:03PM
Wizards of Waverly PlaceIf Disney was still not sure what their next super-series was going to be once Hannah Montana goes to bed after next season, they know now. The Wizards of Waverly Place movie just nailed down the highest cable ratings of the year. This in a summer full of ratings records on cable. Only High School Musical 2 has bested it on Disney, and we know what a phenomenon that franchise became.

Even more outstanding, the movie stands a decent chance of being the highest rated show on television this past week, including the broadcast networks. Tuesday's America's Got Talent, the summer leader, had 11.2 million viewers per the overnight ratings. Wizards of Waverly Place got 11.4 million.

Maybe it's time to combine the viewership numbers for cable shows and the broadcast networks. I think the cable channels have proven they can compete with select shows, so why not show it? While there are comprehensive, albeit flawed, ratings numbers from Nielsen for the broadcast networks, the consumer gets far less information about cable ratings. It's all television, right?
