Former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo to host primetime show on NewsNation

Former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is returning to primetime TV to host a new show for NewsNation, the cable news channel owned by local TV giant Nexstar. NewsNation is led by Michael Corn, a former executive producer of ABC’s Good Morning America (Cuomo also used to work at ABC News). The news channel was launched as a programming block in 2020, with the whole channel rebranding last year. Before shifting to cable news, it operated as a cable channel known as WGN America.

Cuomo’s show will debut in the fall.  He said: “I want to find a way to help people, I am going to come to newsNation and I want to build something special here. I’ve decided that I can’t go back to what people see as ‘the big game,’ I think we need insurgent media, I think we need outlets that aren’t fringe and just trying to fill their pockets.”

Cuomo was fired by CNN in December after new details emerged about the lengths he went to help his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, respond to allegations of sexual harassment. Earlier this month, Cuomo launched a podcast called The Chris Cuomo Project. The debut episode, which included an interview with actor Sean Penn, also featured Cuomo’s first comments about CNN since his departure from the cable news channel.

Tony Dow, who portrayed Wally Cleaver on ‘Leave It to Beaver,’ dies at age 77

Actor Tony Dow, who played Wally Cleaver on the long-running 1950s sitcom “Leave It to Beaver,” died Wednesday morning at the age of 77 due to complications from liver cancer. Dow’s death was officially announced on the actor’s official Facebook page, and confirmed by his son and Dow’s agent, Frank Bilotta. On Tuesday, Dow’s management team had erroneously announced the actor’s death in a Facebook post that has since been deleted. Later on Tuesday, Dow’s manager and his wife, Lauren Shulkind, both said that Dow was still alive and in hospice care.

Dow portrayed Beaver’s older brother, Wally on “Leave It to Beaver” from 1957 to 1963. After “Leave It to Beaver” ended, Dow continued to act, but also served in the National Guard between 1965 and 1968, according to TMZ.   Dow later reprised the beloved role for another six years on The New Leave It to Beaver, which aired from 1983 to 1989, as well as in the Still the Beaver TV movie in the early ‘80s.  The California native continued to act on TV throughout the next several decades, including a starring role in 153 episodes of Never Too Young in the mid-‘60s. In the ‘70s and ‘80s, Dow made appearances on Lassie, My Three Sons, Mr. Novak, Murder, She Wrote and Charles in Charge.

Dow directed five episodes of Still the Beaver and wrote one for that show, later branching out into directing other series, including “Harry and the Hendersons,” “Coach,” “Babylon 5,” “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.”

Dow is survived by his wife Lauren, son Christopher, brother Dion and one grandchild.

Shawn Mendes cancels remainder of 2022 tour amid mental health struggles

Shawn Mendes has canceled the remaining dates on his ‘Wonder’ world tour to prioritize his mental health, after postponing the show for three weeks earlier this month.

The 23-year-old singer wrote on social media“As you guys know, I had to postpone the past few weeks of shows since I wasn’t totally prepared for the toll that being back on the road would take on me. I started this tour excited to finally get back to playing live after a long break due to the pandemic, but the reality is I was not at all ready for how difficult touring would be after this time away. After speaking more with my team and working with an incredible group of health professionals, it has become more clear that I need to take the time I’ve never taken personally, to ground myself and come back stronger. “

Mendes kicked off the Wonder tour in June and was scheduled to perform across North America, Europe and the United Kingdom through August 2023.  Mendes said in his statement: “We were hopeful that I might be able to pick up with the rest of the dates after some much needed time off, but at this time I have to put my health first as my first priority. This doesn’t mean I won’t be making new music, and I can’t wait to see you on tour in the future.  I know you all have been waiting so long to see these shows, and it breaks my heart to tell you this but I promise I will be back as soon as I’ve taken the right time to heal. I love you all and thank you all so much for supporting me and sticking by me on this journey.”

Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings named permanent Jeopardy! hosts

Two years after the death of Alex Trebeck, Jeopardy! has a new set of hosts — interim hosts Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings will stay on as the game show’s co-hosts permanently.

Bialik and Jennings have been splitting hosting duties on Jeopardy! since last September, and the quiz show’s two-host format will help the program develop spinoffs. Bialik is expected to host primetime editions of the show, as well as the new Celebrity Jeopardy! in the works at ABC. Executive producer Michael Davies told Variety in June: “With all of our plans for Jeopardy! — which is more Jeopardy!, not less, more versions — we’re going to need multiple hosts to represent the entire audience, to represent the entire country, in order to take this franchise forward.”

A number of stars took turns guest-hosting Jeopardy! over the past two years. Last August, the series named executive producer Mike Richards as its official permanent host, but after offensive comments he made on a 2013 podcast were discovered, he was let go from hosting duties.
