Ben & Jen to live together: Affleck Garner Live Together

Published: July 1, 2015

Ben & Jen to live together: Affleck Garner Live Together, Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa’s docuseries “Day Today” debuts tonight at 10:30 on REVOLT, the network announced Tuesday.

The TV debut of the highly successful Internet series follows the Grammy-nominated rapper during his Boys of Zummer tour, which hits First Niagara Pavilion on Thursday, giving the audience an exclusive in-depth look into his career, music and personal life on the road with co-headliner Fall Out Boy.

The five-week series delivers each of the 15-minute episodes just hours after shooting, giving fans a close to real-time look inside Wiz’s daily life.

“I’m excited to partner with REVOLT and Puff [Daddy],” Wiz said. “Not only are they a fan of my music, but I know how important REVOLT is for the youth. I stay connected to the youth, and this is groundbreaking.”

“Wiz Khalifa is one of the most compelling artists in the game right now,” added Val Boreland, REVOLT executive vice president and head of programming and production. “We are thankful that he trusted REVOLT as the platform to share this exclusive behind-the-scenes look at his life.”

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are splitting after 10 years of marriage, the Associated Press reports.

The Oscar winner and his wife sent out a joint statement on Tuesday after weeks of public speculation on the status of their marriage.

“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time,” the couple said.

Affleck will continue to live on the couple’s property in a separate house, and the two will continue to co-parent their three children: Violet Affleck, Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck and Samuel Garner Affleck, according to a person who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The couple also plan to go to a mediator to settle their divorce, the person said.

Affleck and Garner married in 2005. They began dating in 2004 after they worked together on “Pearl Harbor” (2001) and “Daredevil” (2003). They became engaged in April 2005 and were married two months later in June during a private ceremony in Turks and Caicos.

Lester Holt got off to a strong start in his first week as permanent anchor of “NBC Nightly News,” the AP reports.

Holt’s broadcast averaged 8 million viewers for the week of June 22-26, topping “ABC World News Tonight With David Muir” (7.7 million) and “CBS Evening News With Scott Pelley” (6.6 million), according to Nielsen data.

It was the best ratings performance for “Nightly” since the week of April 20, and the widest margin of victory over ABC’s program in three months.

“Nightly” also edged “World News” by 37,000 viewers in the 25-to-54 age group that advertisers covet when they buy commercials on news programs. It was NBC’s first win in the category since the week of May 18.

Holt had been filling in for NBC’s longtime evening news anchor Brian Williams, who was suspended in February. On June 18, NBC named Holt as the replacement for Williams, who is moving into a new role at NBC’s cable news channel MSNBC in August.

Holt clearly benefited from the national media coverage he received for his ascension to the chair. NBC’s decision on Williams also freed the network to run promotional spots for the newscast, something it hasn’t done since Williams’ suspension began.

ABC pointed out that despite the weekly win for “Nightly,” “World News” ranked first in viewers over the entire second quarter of 2015, its first quarterly win in eight years. It was also first in the 25-to-54 age group.

Plans for Kim Kardashian to appear at one of San Francisco’s most august institutions have set off a typical “love her/hate her” stir, the AP reports.

The reality TV star was scheduled to speak and sign copies of her new coffee table book, “Selfish,” during a Tuesday night event hosted by the Commonwealth Club of California, which bills itself as the nation’s oldest and largest public affairs forum.

During the club’s 112-year history, world leaders and intellectuals such as President Ronald Reagan, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, Martin Luther King Jr. and Cornel West have addressed its members. Franklin D. Roosevelt outlined the principles that would form the basis for the New Deal during a Commonwealth Club speech in 1932.

Kardashian’s 45-minute conversation with LaDoris Cordell, a retired state judge, is being presented by a division of the club called INFORUM, launched in 2002 to appeal to younger and hipper audiences.

Topics are expected to include the pregnant 34-year-old’s famous family, “the business of millennial culture” and “the objectification of women in media,” according to INFORUM’s description of the event. It also is scheduled to include 15 minutes of audience questions.

INFORUM director Caroline Moriarty Sacks said Kardashian was deemed a worthy guest based on “what she is doing in terms of business and social media and the way she makes us question our understanding of modern feminism, for better or for worse.”

“We all need to think a little more deeply about her when she is booked by the Commonwealth Club, and that means we are doing our job,” Sacks said.

Since the event was announced earlier this month, the program’s Facebook page has lit up with comments opposing and supporting her selection, with some posters saying they would go so far as to cancel their club memberships.

The flap is reminiscent of the flak National Public Radio received earlier this month after Kardashian appeared on its “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!” quiz show. NPR received hundreds of complaints and some listeners threatened to stop donating to the nonprofit broadcaster.
