The television station that will air the reality TV program featuring a family with 19 children has been honored by a conservative entertainment watchdog group.
UP TV, which will carry the program "Bringing Up Bates" next month, has a history of being honored by the Parents Television Council for its station's content.
Roma Downey was named one of the 100 Women in Entertainment Power by The Hollywood Reporter this year, commemorating her hard work on the "Bible" series, "Son of God" and the upcoming "A.D."
The list of influential women, which also includes Oprah Winfrey, Angelina Jolie, and Lena Dunham, recognizes recipients' achievements in the entertainment industry. Downey lands at number 91, on the list which comes as no surprise since the "Touched By An Angel" star and her husband, Mark Burnett, produced the most-watched series ever featured on the History Channel last year ... the "Bible" series.
Furthermore, Downey and Burnett were also behind this year's film "Son of God," which soared at the box office and earned almost $60 million. The power couple's work does not end there. In 2015, the pair will release their latest production, "A.D.," which picks up where the "Bible" series left off. more >>

Christian television program "Hour of Power," featuring Shepherd's Grove Church pastor Bobby Schuller, has reportedly undergone "significant changes" in order to lead non-religious people "into a deeper understanding of scripture," and has been added to the NRB Network lineup for the upcoming year.
"We're pleased to add the new Hour of Power to our lineup," said NRB Network President & CEO Troy A. Miller. "We are highly selective in the programming we choose to air and I believe our viewers will find Pastor Bobby to be committed to the authority of Scripture with teachings in step with historic Christianity."
Schuller relaunched the popular program, which had originally been hosted by his grandfather, Robert H. Schuller, after he was named new lead pastor at Shepherd's Grove in California earlier this year. more >>
