TV Ratings: ‘America’s Got Talent’ Finale Draws 10 Million Viewers

  • Variety
Spoiler Alert: Do not read on if you have not seen the season 14 finale of “America’s Got Talent.”

The finale of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” which saw blind, autistic singer Kodi Lee crowned the winner, drew almost exactly 10 million viewers for the Peacock on Wednesday night.

Bolstered by a robust, velvety Cher performance, the show comfortably won the night with a 1.5 rating in the key 18-49 demographic, a season high in the Wednesday time slot. However, it also represents a 29% decrease on the 2018 finale, which came in at a 2.10 rating, and the lowest rating for an “Agt” finale in the show’s history.

The 10 million viewership figure is the third largest the show has produced in its 14th season, but it is also significantly down on the 13 million sets of eyeballs who tuned in to see last year’s final results.

Elsewhere, “Big Brother” was the only

‘America’s Got Talent’ Season 14 Finale: And the Winner Is… (Video)

  • The Wrap
America’s certainly got talent — this summer, mostly in the form of Kodi Lee. The singer-songwriter beat the other nine finalists (and a whole bunch more before that) to be crowned the 2019 “America’s Got Talent” champion.

The second part of NBC’s two-hour Season 14 finale aired Wednesday night, when Lee was named the winner. The Detroit Youth Choir was the runner-up.

Lee, who is blind and autistic, wowed the judges all season long. During the finale, he teamed up with pop star Leona Lewis, who won “The X Factor U.K.” in 2006.

Other guests performers during the finale included Macklemore, reggaeton star Ozuna, pianist Lang Lang, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Cher.

Magician Shin Lim won the million-dollar prize and a Las Vegas residency last summer.

America's Got Talent Season 14 Crowns a Winner

Well this feels right.  Kodi Lee has been named the winner of America's Got Talent season 14, which felt inevitable all season long. The 22 year-old singer and pianist is blind and autistic, but neither of those things stopped him from putting on incredible performances all season long, ever since he won Gabrielle Union's golden buzzer in the first audition episode of the season.  Now, he's got a million dollars and a show in Vegas.  "I feel so amazing," he told Terry Crews after winning. "Unbelievable!"  After a series of star-studded performances from the likes of Cher, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Leona Lewis, Terry Crews narrowed down the top five, which...

Sarah Paulson Totally Fangirled After Cher Touched Her Hand at the Met Gala

Sarah Paulson Totally Fangirled After Cher Touched Her Hand at the Met Gala
Even celebrities get starstruck—just ask Sarah Paulson. The 44-year-old actress appeared on Tuesday's episode of The Tonight Show and recalled how she totally freaked out after Cher touched her hand at the 2019 Met Gala. As fans will recall, the 73-year-old singer gave a surprise performance at this year's soirée. "I'm like hand up in the air, waving around and she sees me, walks right to me and grabs me hand," the American Crime Story star said. "I mean, like, it was a personal—cause we're friends, you guys." But after Jimmy Fallon questioned their Bff status, Paulson set the record straight. "Well, I had her light switch plate...

Video Game Review – Groundhog Day: Like Father, Like Son

Shaun Munro reviews Groundhog Day: Like Father, Like Son…

Video games based on movies historically have a wonky rep, and rightly so. When you throw the challenges of Vr gaming into the mix too, along with the complexity of timey-wimey source material, it has so much potential for disrespectful disaster.

But thankfully with Tequila Works at the helm – the team behind Vr murder-mystery romp The Invisible Hours – the classic 1993 Bill Murray-starring time loop comedy Groundhog Day gets a winningly reverent and oft-ambitious Vr follow-up.

Groundhog Day: Like Father, Like Son takes place following the death of Murray’s movie protagonist Phil Connors, focused instead on his son, also named Phil. Phil Jr., a vlogger, finds himself back in his sleepy, podunk hometown of Punxsutawney to cover the annual Groundhog Day festivities, only to himself end up trapped in the very same time loop that huaranged his father decades prior.

Warren Zevon deserves 2020 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame [Poll Results]

Warren Zevon deserves 2020 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame [Poll Results]
It’s been a long while since a male solo artist has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And according to results from our recent poll, the one you most want for induction in 2020 is the late Warren Zevon. He narrowly defeated such rock heavyweights as George Michael, Phil Collins and Todd Rundgren in our poll.

Shockingly, no male solo artists were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame the past two years. This astounding fact follows several years of voters catching up on such artists as Neil Diamond (2011), Donovan (2012), Peter Gabriel (2014), Randy Newman (2013), Lou Reed (2015), Steve Miller (2016), Cat Stevens (2014) and Bill Withers (2015).

We also recently offered very popular polls about which rock group you wanted next (won by The Doobie Brothers) and which female artist you would choose.

Here are the final poll results for the dozen men in our poll:

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame poll: Which snubbed male artist should finally be inducted in 2020?
Shockingly, no male solo artists were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame the past two years. This astounding fact follows several years of voters catching up on such artists as Neil Diamond (2011), Donovan (2012), Peter Gabriel (2014), Randy Newman (2013), Lou Reed (2015), Steve Miller (2016), Cat Stevens (2014) and Bill Withers (2015).

It’s not for a lack of choices, however. Our new poll below offers 12 male artists who have been snubbed for years despite being eligible for induction. Vote for the one man you feel most deserves to be selected for the 2020 ceremony.

We also recently offered very popular polls about which rock group you wanted next (won by The Doobie Brothers) and which female artist you would choose.

Here are descriptions of the dozen men in our poll:

Bryan Adams

Eligible since 2004. Top songs include “Cuts Like a Knife,” “Heaven,” “Run to You,” “Summer of ’69.”Nominated for 15 Grammy Awards with one win.

Cher, Tina Turner should be inducted in 2020 for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame [Poll Results]

Cher, Tina Turner should be inducted in 2020 for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame [Poll Results]
Cher and Tina Turner are your top choices for induction into the 2020 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Those results from over 1,000 people worldwide are from our recent poll offering you 12 female artists that have been overlooked by voters in recent years. See the full results below.

Lady rockers have had a hard time getting inducted many years, but the 2019 ceremony had both Janet Jackson and Stevie Nicks finally getting in. In fact, Nicks became the first woman to be inducted twice (along with her band Fleetwood Mac) even though many men have had multiple inductions. If Turner gets the call for induction, it would be her second time as well after a selection with ex-husband Ike Turner in 1991.

And here are the results for our recent poll about overlooked bands, which was won by The Doobie Brothers. Look for a male artist poll in the near future.

The Eternal Sunshine of Harry Styles

The Eternal Sunshine of Harry Styles
Harry Styles isn’t exactly dressed down for lunch. He’s got a white floppy hat that Diana Ross might have won from Elton in a poker game at Cher’s mansion circa 1974, plus Gucci shades, a cashmere sweater, and blue denim bell-bottoms. His nail polish is pink and mint green. He’s also carrying his purse — no other word for it — a yellow patent-canvas bag with the logo “Chateau Marmont.” The tough old ladies who work at this Beverly Hills deli know him well.

You May Only Know Her as Zendaya, but Her Full Name Actually Has Tons of History Behind It

You May Only Know Her as Zendaya, but Her Full Name Actually Has Tons of History Behind It
With a name as badass as Zendaya, who needs a surname? But believe it or not, the 22-year-old former Disney Channel star does actually have one. Her full name is Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman, having been born the only child of Claire Marie Stoermer and Kazembe Ajamu (who reclaimed his African name after he was born Samuel David Coleman). Her stage name, however, has only ever been just Zendaya.

When asked about the choice to drop her last name, the actress told Allure back in December 2016 that she simply liked the sound of the one-word stage name better. "I [dropped my last name because I] just thought it was cool, like Cher or Prince," she explained. Makes sense to us (and we think Rihanna and Beyoncé would also agree). By the way: it's pronounced zen-day-uh, not zen-die-uh. "I think a lot of people see my name and think it's more fancy than it is," she said to Teen Vogue.

Emmys 2019: Why Cultural Conversations Around Projects and Performers Boost Awards Chances

  • Variety
Visibility matters.

This is a refrain most often — and most importantly — sung about the representation of women, people of color, Lgbtq, those with disabilities and other marginalized groups within the entertainment industry. But in many ways, it is crucial for Emmy nominees, too.

After all, with more than 500 scripted series alone, the odds that the 25,000 members of the Television Academy have actually seen any part of a show, let alone all of it, get slimmer every year. Series or individuals with larger footprints have seemingly pushed forward this year. The ones that did land nominations scored accolades across the ballot.

Now that the time left on final round voting is ticking down quickly, visibility — both from a campaign perspective and a larger cultural conversation — will likely push one nominee to the front of the pack.

“It’s challenging to look back to see if there was any correlation to getting

Does the Royal Family Have a Last Name?

  • Popsugar
Does the Royal Family Have a Last Name?
Believe it or not, Madonna has one (Ciccone). Cher does too (Sarkisian). And even though he was born into that regal moniker, Prince himself had a mundane last name as well (Nelson).

But what about the actual royals - have you ever wondered what's printed on their British birth certificates? Sure, you know the major players - Elizabeth, Charles, William, Kate, and Harry - by their fairly common first names, but do the members of the royal family have last names just like us commoners?

Yes and no. Before 1917, members of the British Royal Family went by the name of the house or dynasty they belonged to, and just as kids might take their dad's last name, royal kids normally took the name of the "House" from their royal fathers. But then George V came along and changed all that. He took on "Windsor" as the name of both his

Broadway Box Office Steady At $34M; ‘Sea Wall/A Life’, ‘The Prom’, ‘Be More Chill’ Fill Seats

Broadway’s Be More Chill, The Prom and Sea Wall/A Life were at near-capacity last week, as the first two headed out and the latter had its official welcome. Together they helped Broadway maintain a steady total box office of $34M for the week of summer dog days ending Aug. 11.

Total attendance for Broadway’s 29 productions was 270,326, even with the previous week. Exact box office was $33,808,016.

Broadway’s most recent arrival, the Jake Gyllenhaal/Tom Sturridge double bill of solo one-acts, Sea Wall/A Life, opened at the Hudson Theatre Aug. 8 to rave reviews and 99% full houses. Box office receipts of $624,838 were down from the previous week, what with press and opening night comps.

Both Be More Chill and The Prom closed Aug. 11 after failing to grab any Tony Award love or box office boon. Both musicals saw last-chance upticks though, with Be More Chill, at the Lyceum, grossing
