Filed under: TV NewsAwardzEmmys

Kevin Costner Lead Actor MiniSeries 2012 Emmys

Woo! Congrats Kevin Costner!

The oh-so-handsome actor just took home the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Miniseries Or Movie for his role as Devil in Hatfields & McCoys!!!

The mini-series, which premiered just this past May, drew in millions of viewers week after week… and we can only assume Kevin’s one of the reasons why!

The multi-talented distinguished actor also produces the show, so this is a bit of a double-win for him!

This award makes Kevin’s very FIRST Emmy and we think he’s more than deserving of the honor!

Way to go, Kev!

Filed under: TV NewsFootball

swamp people ratings

Move over Jersey Shore, Swamp People is the new king of reality television — all thanks to one $3.5 million gamble during this year's Super Bowl!

Since a pricey 30-second Super Bowl spot aired in February, the History Channel's series about Louisiana families who hunt alligators for a living has increased its viewership by over 1.2 million!

Episodes were already attracting 4 million people, but as of last week, the series had more viewers than NCAA basketball games AND the MTV hit with 5.2 million!

Have U watched Swamp People since the Giants beat the Patriots? If so, did the Super Bowl ad help get your attention?

ABC To Air Never-Before-Heard Tapes Of Jackie Kennedy

Filed under: TV NewsPolitik

The Kennedy tapes

Just in time for the 50th year anniversary of John F. Kennedy's inauguration into the White House.

ABC has announced it will premiere a primetime special this September featuring never-before-heard tapes of Jacqueline Kennedy talking about the JFK assassination and her years in the White House.

The tapes, recorded in 1964, surfaced when the History Channel announced the $25 million miniseries about the Kennedy family.

Mrs. Kennedy stipulated that the tapes can not be made public until after her passing. They consist of a long conversation she had with historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. shortly after her husbands assassination.

Although at first hesitant, the couples only surviving child Caroline Kennedy is said to be participating in the special.

There should definitely be something interesting insight and secrets revealed during the special, so we can't wait to hear these tapes!

Will U watch ABC's Jackie Kennedy special?

Survivor Winner Hosting His Own Reality Show

Filed under: TV NewsReality TV

Boston Rob new show

It looks like a double congrats is in order for Rob Mariano, better known to Survivor fans as "Boston Rob", who is the million dollar winner of the most recent season, Survivor: Redemption Island.

After FINALLY winning the reality competition on his 4th try, Mariano has also landed himself a hosting gig on History Channel's new show Around The World In 80 Ways.

He explained the show's premise by saying:

"The basic premise of the show is me and a co-host are going to travel around the world, from point A to point B, but you can never repeat any of the forms of transportation. If you use a commercial airline once, you can't use it again. You need to take a fighter jet or a blimp or a hot air balloon. Within that context, we're going to try to use transportation that is indigenous to the area. If we're in the desert, we'll ride camels."

Sounds inneresting!

We doubt it will grab the attention of as many viewers as Survivor, but we're sure regular History Channel surfers will tune in.

Congrats on the new show and that hard earned million bucks! You're truly an exception to the expression "third time's the charm". Ha!

Will U watch Boston Rob's new show Around The World In 80 Ways?
