'The Weird Al Show': The Complete Oral History

'The Weird Al Show': The Complete Oral History
Al Yankovic can be described in a lot of ways besides "Weird." Most people know that he's a chart-topping singer-songwriter, a director-producer, a top-notch parodist, an author and a die-hard polka enthusiast. Even those who have followed his career closely, however, may have forgotten he was, for a brief moment, the host of a short-lived children's television show.

The Weird Al Show debuted on CBS on September 13, 1997 as part of their Saturday morning lineup. Each episode began with the all important "today's lesson" before viewers were invited into Yankovic's underground

‘The Uncondemned’ Exclusive Clip: Courtroom Documentary Tackles First Prosecution of Rape As War Crime

‘The Uncondemned’ Exclusive Clip: Courtroom Documentary Tackles First Prosecution of Rape As War Crime
In 1997, a group of young international lawyers and activists prosecuted rape as an international war crime in the first case of genocide in history. The International Criminal Trial for Rwanda (the Ictr) was established by the United Nations in 1994 in order to judge the people responsible for the Rwandan Genocide where an estimated 1,000,000 Tutsi people were slaughtered at the hands of the Hutu majority. The new documentary “The Uncondemned” tracks the trial of Jean-Paul Akayesu, and how a group of underdog lawyers and three brave women helped establish the precedent that genocidal rape falls under genocide. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

Why Hln’s Robin Meade Isn’t Celebrating Her Work Anniversary

  • The Wrap
Most people would go all out to celebrate their 15th anniversary at a high-profile job, but Hln’s Robin Meade isn’t most people — her start date was Sept. 11, 2001. “It’s painful to really sit and think about your emotions from that day,” the network’s weekday-morning anchor told TheWrap. Meade spent her first day at CNN’s Atlanta headquarters, where she was set to make her Hln (then Headline News) debut at 9 a.m. Et — minutes after the first plane hit the World Trade Center’s north tower.

Mr. Robot Recap: Freedom Isn't Free
Elliot may be walking the streets again in this week’s Mr. Robot… but that doesn’t mean he’s smiling underneath that hoodie.

Ok, fine, Elliot never smiles. But he’s got a lot on his mind just the same. The episode kicked off by flashing back to the end of Season 1, when Elliot heard that knock on his apartment door. Turns out it was the cops, arresting him for hacking his therapist’s sleazy boyfriend and stealing his dog — a dog that cost $1,200, by the way, making the canine theft a felony. So when Elliot pled guilty to

CNN Anchor Lynne Russell and Husband Shot During Attempted Robbery That Left Intruder Dead

Sometimes the truth is simply wilder than fiction. Lynne Russell, author and former host of CNN Headline News, and her husband, Chuck de Caro, were both shot on Tuesday in an armed robbery attempt at their New Mexico motel where they were staying while on a road trip together, a terrifying encounter that ended in the suspect being shot to death.

New TV Shows From Hln Include Two With Ties To Online Video

Hln is trying to change its image, and it's getting some help from a pair of crafty online video execs. The cable channel formerly known as Headline News has unveiled its upcoming slate, and it includes a series from My Damn Channel's Rob Barnett as well as another from Frederator Studios' Fred Seibert. Barnett will produce Videocracy, in which a host and a panel will discuss the most exciting social media stories of the day. From that blurb, it sounds just like @midnight, the Comedy Central program in which host Chris Hardwick and a panel of comedians riff on social media. Seibert's contribution will take the form of I Can Haz NewsToons, which will feature an assortment of socially relevant animated shorts. Some of these shorts will come from web cartoonists, while others will come from print satirists. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the eclectic slate is part

Harvey Weinstein acquires The Imitation Game, Juan Pablo nude pic set to leak, Nevada drops defense of marriage ban

Harvey Weinstein has purchased the U.S. rights to The Imitation Game, the Alan Turing biopic staring Benedict Cumberbatch, and it sounds like he’s got big plans for it. “Teddy Schwarzman and Morten Tyldum took a script that Bob [Weinstein] and I loved but were worried about its tone, because if you got it wrong one inch to the left or one inch to the right, you would have major problems. These guys got it so perfect. They did a better job than I ever could have. Benedict is unbelievable, and this is going to be a big year for Keira. We look at this as a major release, and we’re thrilled to have it.”

Miley Cyrus Inspires New Words for the Dictionary, Morgan Freeman Narrates

Her name has become a buzz word of late, and now, one of Miley Cyrus' famous dance moves has made its way in to the Oxford Dictionary.

On Wednesday (August 28), the popular word resource announced it will be adding twerk, selfie and pixie cut, all Miley inspired, to its online edition.

The dictionary defines twerk as: dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.

Effects of the addition have been far reaching, in a report on the story, actor Morgan Freeman, who was visiting Headline News “Morning Express,” was asked to read the definition of twerking with some hilarious results! Check it out in the player below!

Nancy Grace's parking lot split-screen with Ashleigh Banfield ... in the same parking lot

In what may signal that cable news has finally become the snake that is eating its own tail, CNN staged a rather bizarre split-screen interview Wednesday (May 8) during its coverage of the Cleveland kidnapping story.

Nancy Grace of Headline News and Ashleigh Banfield of CNN were talking about the latest in the Cleveland case, when an on-screen graphic informs viewers that both the anchors are in Phoenix.

Well, that's a little weird, but then you realize they're in Phoenix to cover the Jodi Arias murder trial verdict. Ok.

However, and hat-tip to the Atlantic Wire for their great GIFs of the broadcast, it quickly becomes clear the two women are in the same parking lot as they conduct their on-air analysis with each other.

As the Atlantic Wire says, judging by the same cars whizzing by in the background of both shots, the two cannot be more than 30 feet away from one another.
