Four popular megachurch pastors are promising to bring an interesting combination of hope, comedy and honesty in a new faith-based talk show to be tested on FOX this summer called "The Preachers."
"The Preachers" will be hosted by John Gray, an associate pastor at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas; E. Dewey Smith Jr., senior pastor at The House of Hope Atlanta and The House of Hope Macon; Orrick Quick, pastor and founder of God Seekers Church in High Point, North Carolina, and Jamal Bryant, pastor and founder of Empowerment Temple AME Church in Baltimore, Maryland.
Candace Cameron Bure recently wore her heart on her sleeve — literally.
The outspoken Christian actress sported a "Jesus" sweatshirt during an episode of "The View" last week. Bure donned a gray, long-sleeved top printed with the words "Jesus Saves, Bro." But did the shirt push the talk show host's religious beliefs on viewers?
The "Fuller House" star snapped a photo wearing the shirt, which she complemented with a pair of ripped jeans, on the set of the show and posted it to Facebook on Friday, as well as to Instagram and Twitter. The image garnered nearly 90,000 Facebook likes and more than 1,200 shares (as of the publication of this article) as many of Bure's friends and followers showed their support, and even joined in with photos wearing their own versions of the shirt. more >>
ESPN has scrubbed out one of the most defining moments of the Boston Red Sox's 2004 World Series playoff run that involved controversial pitcher and recently fired ESPN analyst Curt Schilling and his famous bloody sock from a documentary that aired over the weekend.
On Sunday night, ESPN broadcast the 2010 "30 for 30" documentary titled "Four Days in October." The documentary focuses on the 2004 Red Sox, who became the first MLB team to battle back from a three-game deficit in a seven-game playoff series when they beat the rival New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series to advance to the World Series.
When the documentary played on ESPN 2 this time around, the sports network left out a very integral part of the documentary that highlights Schilling's performance in the sixth game of the series. more >>
Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) just proved himself to be possibly the cruelest character ever to appear on HBO's "Game of Thrones."
In a series of shocking scenes that rivalled many of the popular fantasy drama's most gruesome to date (e.g. the Red Wedding and the Purple Wedding), Ramsay learned that Walda Frey, his father's wife, had given birth to a son. Because the birth of a legitimate heir threatened his own position in House Bolton, Ramsay murdered his father, stabbing him in the heart. He then called for Walda and her newborn son and led them to the dog kennel. There, he unleashed the hounds on them, leaving fans with the bloodcurdling sounds of Walda's screams before they were drowned out by the dogs' growls.
Showtime's British-American horror drama "Penny Dreadful" debuted its third season on Sunday, May 1, with the episode "The Day Tennyson Died."
In it, viewers found Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett), Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), and Sir Malcolm Murray (Timothy Dalton) scattered across the globe and facing their own demons as a downcast Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) sought help from Dr. Seward (Patti LuPone), an alienist/therapist.
The chemistry between the tortured characters Ethan and Vanessa is one of the reasons viewers have stay tuned to "Penny Dreadful" and is also why many are looking forward to the pair's reunion in upcoming episodes. more >>
The introduction of the iconic Marvel antihero Frank Castle/The Punisher, played by "The Walking Dead" alum Jon Bernthal, was considered by many to be one of the best things about the second season of Netflix's "Daredevil."
Now, after months of speculation, Marvel has finally confirmed that it has ordered a spinoff about the vengeful military vet, with Bernthal reprising his role as the titular mercenary.
