Star Power Invades "Price Is Right"
It's Celebrity Week All Week!
From AV Club

Game shows are more dangerous than you think they are.

At least, that's what Jack Black is probably thinking after he appeared on The Price is Right on Monday. The actor, fresh off a successful Sundance trip, joined the show for its Celebrity Charity Week (playing for the Society of Women Engineers) and seemed super stoked to be there. But he was not nearly as excited as one over-enthusiastic contestant.

During the Showcase Showdown Black waved a contestant named Andrew over for a celebratory high five after a big moment, but it seems Andrew does not know his own strength, and his hand ricocheted off Black's and straight into his head. Don't worry, Black himself said he was "OK," and Andrew apologized profusely. Host Drew Carey, meanwhile, can be heard cackling the entire time.

Celebrity Week continues with Wilmer Valderrama ("NCIS"), Jane Lynch ("Hollywood Game Night"), Julie Bowen ("Modern Family"), and Chris O'Donnell ("NCIS Los Angeles")

MTV, An Island, a Group of Contestants, and $1 Million
"Stranded with a Million Dollars" Premieres Tonight
From Monsters & Critics

MTV’s new reality gameshow series Stranded With a Million Dollars (premiering tonight at 10p) sees 10 contestants who are total strangers left on an island with, yup, you guessed it $1million.

Those cast members that manage to survive for 40 days get to keep the cash, but there’s a twist. During their stay they have to buy supplies to keep alive and give themselves shelter.

And these items are seriously expensive, like $10,000 for a machete, $30,000 for a tent, and $1,000 for a bottle of water. So during their time on the island they have to decide between them how best to spend — or save — their cash, so they have as much left over as possible for whoever manages to survive.

What makes it even more difficult is that every purchase needs be made by vote, with a majority needed to go through with it.

There are also ‘Temptations’, where individuals get the chance to use the group’s cash to buy personal things. This is obviously a massive recipe for conflict.

ABC
Rachel Lindsay Named the New "Bachelorette"
Woman Makes History as First African-American to Take the Role
From the Independent

After 33 seasons and years of mounting criticism, ABC has finally cast a black lead for it’s hit television show The Bachelorette.

Rachel Lindsay, a 31-year-old attorney from Texas and current contestant on The Bachelor, will be announced as the next Bachelorette on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday night, the Reality Steve website first reported. The news follows years of criticism over its lack of diversity.

Channing Dungey, the network’s entertainment president and first black woman to run a broadcast entertainment division, said that producers needed to start with booking more diverse candidates from the beginning of the series.

"It’s worked very well for us because the audiences feel really engaged [in choosing] that candidate" she said at the 2016 Television Critics Association's summer press tour. "What we’d like to do is broaden that. We need to increase the pool of diverse candidates in the beginning. That is something we really want to put some effort and energy toward."

An industry insider close to the show told Vulture that ABC didn’t mind spoiling Lindsey’s current run on The Bachelor as long as they got ahead of websites who work to spoil the show.

"We named her the Bachelorette early because weird TV calendar stuff is that The Bachelor runs right up to when we start taping The Bachelorette," Harrison continued. "Like, we're talking days [and] we're done. And [Rachel] goes further in the show and we're like, 'Well we need to let everybody know that Rachel's our Bachelorette. We would like to cast the show for her.'"

In other words, the earlier ABC reveals the next Bachelorette, the more time they have to cast the right men -- a solid group of suitors who are truly invested in finding love, particularly with Lindsay this season.

"We cast all year long, but like we did with Nick, it's easier with The Bachelor because the calendar is different leading into it," Harrison explained to Ripa. "But we wanted everyone to know it's Nick so we can find people that really want to be with Nick. And so we want to cast the show for Rachel, but we can't do that in two days."

And the plan makes sense because a source recently told Us Weekly, "The response has been amazing about Rachel. There's been a huge spike in casting. Rachel is open to different types of guys. So it'll be a mix of different types and races of guys for her season."

Harrison apologized to fans about "the timing" of the announcement several days ago on Instagram, saying he'd hate to ruin anything for Bachelor Nation, but he's so excited about casting Lindsay.

"I'm wondering why she's doing [the show]," Harrison said, as if she's too good for it. "She's beautiful, smart -- love her!"

Syfy Tries Cosplay Again
Yvette Nicole Brown Hosts "Cosplay Melee" March 21
From the Futon Critic

The world's most innovative cosplayers go head to head each week in Syfy's new transformation competition series COSPLAY MELEE - an epic showdown of creativity, eye popping costumes and one of a kind characters. Premiering on Tuesday, March 21 at 10/9c, the hour-long battle is hosted by actress and self-described "super fan girl" Yvette Nicole Brown ("The New Edition Story," "Community") and executive produced by Jay Peterson and Todd Lubin of Matador Content ("Lip Sync Battle").

Each week, four world class cosplayers compete to create not only intricate full-body costumes - but fully-formed characters that they must bring to life through their own realistic performance. Guiding and critiquing them are a panel of judges including world class cosplayer LeeAnna Vamp, and A-list costume creator, Christian Beckman ("The Hunger Games," "TRON: Legacy"). At the end of every episode, the winner will walk away with $10,000 ... and the right to claim cosplay supremacy.

"Cosplay is passion, artistry, engineering and theater all rolled into one," said Heather Olander, Senior Vice President, Alternative Development and Production at USA/Syfy. "At the intersection of the maker world and fandom, the incredible artists of COSPLAY MELEE will blow your minds with their transformational creations."

"As a huge fan of the creativity cosplayers bring to their craft, nothing makes me happier than having a front row seat for the amazing creations set to hit the COSPLAY MELEE runway," said host Brown. "These talented artists are going to shine!"

Best known for her roles on NBC's "Community" and having recently starred in "The New Edition Story," Brown began her television career on "Girlfriends" and currently stars as Dani on the reboot of "The Odd Couple." Previous film credits include "Little Black Book," "Tropic Thunder," "Meet Dave," "Dreamgirls" and more. Brown can also be seen peeking through prosthetic makeup as one of the Three Fates in the Percy Jackson sequel "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" and has lent her voice for several characters on the big and small screens, including roles on "Family Guy," "Pound Puppies" and, most recently, "Yellowbird."

FremantleMedia North America
Nick Cannon Quits "America's Got Talent"
Joke at Center of Row Between Host, NBC
From the Huffington Post

America might still have talent, but Nick Cannon will no longer be overseeing it.

The “Drumline” actor, who has hosted NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” for the past eight seasons, announced in a lengthy Facebook post Monday that he would not be returning to the reality competition series.

Cannon made the decision to exit the franchise amid controversy over a racially charged joke he told in his recent Showtime stand-up special “Stand Up, Don’t Shoot.” According to Cannon, executives at NBC believed he “disparaged the brand” and later threatened to terminate his contract.

“After days of deliberating over some extremely disappointing news that I was being threatened with termination by Executives because of a comedy special that was only intended to bring communities closer together, I was to be punished for a joke,” he wrote on Instagram and Facebook. “This has weighed heavy on my spirit. It was brought to my attention by my ‘team’ that NBC believed that I was in breach of contract because I had disparaged their brand. In my defense, I would ask how so? Or is this just another way to silence and control an outspoken voice who often battles the establishment.”

In his stand-up special, which premiered on Showtime Friday, Cannon reportedly riffs on his experience hosting “America’s Got Talent” and how the series has changed his core fanbase.

“I find myself in a dark place having to make a decision that I wish I didn’t have to, but as a man, an artist, and a voice for my community, I will not be silenced, controlled or treated like a piece of property,” he continued in the post. “There is no amount of money worth my dignity or my integrity. I have loved hosting AMERICAS GOT TALENT for the last 8 seasons, watching talented, brave, and courageous Americans accomplish their dreams in front of millions has been nothing but a joy, and everyone has been a pleasure to work with but my soul won’t allow me to be in business with corporations that attempt to frown on freedom of speech, censor artists, and question cultural choices.”

Barely a day after the host appeared to quit the competition show, NBC executives are keeping their fingers crossed that he’ll be back, according to TMZ.

While Cannon’s rant certainly doesn’t look promising for the chance he’ll return when production for the show starts next month, the execs are holding off on looking for a replacement host.
