Families everywhere gathered around the television last night to check out The Wiz Live!
The highly anticipated show gave NBC its best Thursday metered-market numbers in two years, since The Sound of Music Live. Although there was some backlash about the cast, the program itself got great reviews from social media viewers. According to Variety, the live musical drew in 11.5 million viewers.
The Late Late Show with James Corden is known for its unorthodox games and segments, but their most recent has to be the most badass.
During a game of Tattoo Roulette with One Direction, each bandmate stood behind a box that read ‘safe’ or not safe. Harry Styles‘ unlucky box was not safe, which meant that he had to get a tattoo on live television.
True to his bad boy fashion, Styles took it in stride, admitting, “I’m actually fine.” Check out the epic moment above.
Ronda Rousey is getting a second chance at success. According to UFC president Dana White, Ronda will get a rematch against defending bantamweight title holder Holly Holm, who defeated her at UFC 193 last month.
Rousey suffered an unprecedented and embarrassing loss against Holm last month; so much so that even Laila Ali advised her not to fight Holm again. But White revealed, “I think that if we didn’t make the rematch, me and Lorenzo (UFC CEO) should probably lose our promoters’ license. Yeah, that fight’s going to happen. I don’t know when, but that’s the fight that will happen.”
He also admitted that Rousey indeed deserves a rematch. Will you be watching?
Tyra Banks has apparently gotten her acting chops back. Variety confirmed the supermodel will reprise her role as ‘Eve’ in the 2000 hit Disney Channel film, Life Size. She told Variety, “There is no one else that can play Eve but me, thank you very much! I’m just joking with you, but yes, I am going to be Eve.”
No word yet on if Lindsay Lohan, the original film’s star, will be in the upcoming sequel. “We have not talked about casting at all so I have no idea who is going to be the young person that will be the owner of Eve. We haven’t gotten to that,” Tyra, who’s executive producing the film, revealed.
Disney Channel is hoping for a 2016 premiere for Life-Size 2.
