One of the worlds largest fast food chains has announced it is launching their own digital network of exclusive original content targeted at dine-in customers.

The McDonald's Network will offer a variety of local school sports, movie previews and heartwarming human interest stories produced by reality juggernaut Mark Burnett!

Will we see Survivor: McDonald's? We're crossing our fingers.

BBC America and KABC-TV Eyewitness News are also planning to provide content for the channel, which will soon be up in 800 restaurants in Southern and Central California.

ChannelPort Communications LLC, a Los Angeles-based company specializing in entertainment content, is in charge of leading the initiative and has said:

"The intention is to catch and engage the customer, and then enhance their experience. The McDonald's customer is everyone, and we want not to be passive viewers but to be active and participatory with this network."

On top of redesigning their franchise locations to look more like cafe's and offering free Wi-Fi, McD's TV is another effort to make the company more "relevant and contemporary", according to a spokesperson.

Filed under: TV NewsDonald Trump

Can't say we agree with giving him this much money! This season of Celebrity Apprentice wasn't THAT good!

NBC has inked a new contract with Donald Trump that will keep him on board to host his reality series for another two years. The network agreed to pay Trump and co-producer Mark Burnett an estimated - wait for it - $160 million for their trouble.

Can you stand it? Even if they split that, that's like $79 million more dollars than he deserves for this gig. He's almost a billionaire! What kind of sense is this supposed to make???

Oh, and did we mention that with this new deal, Trump becomes

Its official!

FOX made the official announcement this afternoon that Jane Lynch will be hosting the 63rd Primetime Emmys this year in September!

The Glee star, in her statement, raves that she was "tickled pink" to be asked to host and reveals she is "looking forward to singing, dancing and sporting my finest tracksuit.” HA!

Mark Burnett, executive producer of the awards show, shared in her excitement with his statement, saying:

“Jane was my first – and only – choice as the host for this year’s Primetime Emmys, and I am glad she said ‘yes,’. She has incredible comedic timing, and is a charismatic, talented actress whose energy leaps off the screen and stage. I am thrilled and excited to have her as our host.”

As are we! As is everyone!!! Jimmy Fallon did an exceptional job with his opening last year - but we think Jane might be able to top it! We have faith in you, Jane! Let's see what you've got!

Survivor Producer Mark Burnett To Take On The Bible!

Filed under: TV NewsSarah PalinReality TV

survivor producer takes on the bible

Quite an ambitious project for the reality producer!

Survivor/The Apprentice/Sarah Palin's Alaska producer Mark Burnett is putting together a 5-part, 10-hour religious docu-drama based on The Bible, which will air on The History Channel in 2013.

Here's what History Channel president/general manager Nancy Dubuc had to say about the project:

"This is probably the most important book in mankind, regardless of your beliefs or religious affiliation. This series will bring the historical stories of the Bible to life for a new generation."

"We spend a lot of time talking about this book, and probably not enough time knowing what's in it. One of the most important things about history is knowing the stories of history."

We agree that The Bible is a very important book…but are we 100% sure that a producer from Sarah Palin's reality show is the right guy to tell the story of the holy book?

Will U watch The Bible when it premieres in 2013? Do U think Mark Burnett is the right guy for this major project?
