ESPN Teases New Morning Show With Jalen Rose, Michelle Beadle & Mike Greenberg (Series Trailer)

Think it’s about time Jalen gets truly spotlighted for what he brings to small screens. If you’ve seen him on something, you know he’ll shine. But this looks like he gets direct spotlight. Good look. Probably a good bet for a good show.

Get ready to “Get Up” with Jalen Rose, Michelle Beadle and Mike Greenberg. The morning show premieres April 2 at 7 a.m. ET.

A Touching Documentary On Public Television’s Mr. Rogers (Trailer)

As it should be. This “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” trailer teases a film that might pull a few tears (happy, sentimental) from you. So when you catch it in theaters June 8th, tuck a pack of those mini-tissues somewhere on you… for the guy next to you (of course).

Jermaine Dupri Speaks On Why Men Ghost On Women (Video)

Saw several commenters crying foul and calling b.s. on Mr. SoSo Def’s take on the matter. If you end up being one of them in that camp, there is more commentary to see. Buuuut, I reserve comment on JD’s callout. I have seen truth in it. Might not be something universal, but there is something to it.

What misconceptions do women have about men? Why do men ghost on women? 🤔 Jermaine Dupri and our BETs Mancave hosts break down common beliefs that women have gotten wrong about men. Do you agree? Let us know in the comments. #MancaveBET

Conan Tells Terry Crews How Serious Kevin Hart Is About Fitness… Like Crews Ain’t A Beast (Video)

Okay, this ‘What The Fit’ looks hilarious! Or could it be Terry Crews? But see, I bet Conan O’Brien is funny on his episode, too. Know what? Just count that series as another win for Kevin Hart’s LOL Network. Okay, back to the interview…

CONAN Highlight: On Kevin Hart’s new show “What The Fit,” Kevin tried to convince Terry Crews that his smaller size made him a superior athlete.

President Trump Wants To Create A U.S. “Space Force” (Video)

Nope. Not a joke. Yep. The President of the United States said this. Now, I am not one to clown far-out ideas. And this idea the President kind of ‘stumbled upon’ is not really all that far out. Of course, he might have a wee bit more credibility if he still had the mega-billionaire futurist Elon Musk at his side. You know, the guy who is actually putting his own money and rep on deep space travel (e.g. the SpaceX mission to Mars).

But um… they part ways a good while ago (more here).

Comedy: Live From New York… It’s ‘The Grabbies’ (Video)

Bwaaaaahahaaa! So they finally got an award for all the real weenies winners out there; the ones with a firm grip on the Hollywood scene… only it seems the dudes are not as happy as one might think to be ‘recognized’ for what they’ve done in Tinsel Town. Go figure. And don’t worry, “The Grabbies” is an equal opportunity award event. Got women getting props “peeping peepees and squeezing sausages,” too.

But hold up: Is that Charles Barkley in there? Guy looks just like him. Turribul. Just turribul (as in terribly funny)!

Grabbie nominees Tom Sturgeson (Alex Moffat), Lenny Martin (Pete Davidson), Ronald Kellogg (Kenan Thompson), Tim Franklin (Charles Barkley) and Catherine LeBourge (Aidy Bryant) are interviewed on the red carpet.

SNL scored with this skit. Shots at ABC and the ‘Film City’… feel the burn!

Comedy: Sterling K. Brown Hosts ‘Saturday Night Live’ (Video)

Got a little ’emotional’ here, but there will be tears anyway… from all the laughing!

Sterling K. Brown has gotten critical acclaim and fame from his recent work in NBC’s “This Is Us” and was even in Marvel’s box office smash “Black Panther.” Serious stuff, to be certain. But this ‘work’ on SNL shows him really having fun with it all… and gives us more chunks of entertainment from the hilarity that ensues.

Funny stuff, to be certain! Start with the opening monologue above, and be sure to hit the jump to keep chuckling.

“Freestylin’ With The Roots” With Bruce Willis (Video)

Haaa! Now THAT’S how you show up to promote a movie (“Death Wish”)! Of course, Jimmy got him to the couch to talk about it later. But check out the ‘surprise’ audience participation by Bruce and the resulting song The Roots created on the spot with Willis’ input before that happens.

Denzel Washington Paid For Chadwick Boseman To Study At Oxford (Video)

Hey yo, King T’Challa, some dude named Denzel is outside and he says you know him… and owe him… for that tuition, sire. Haa!

Very awesome story. If paying it forward is in your nature, you end up blessing others in ways you cannot imagine. Denzel Washington has always blessed us with proper representation and performances that make us proud. Looks like he played a part in leveling up Chadwick Boseman to do that. It follows that the blessings will continue.

Chadwick Boseman reveals how he wound up studying acting at the University of Oxford thanks to Denzel Washington’s generosity and discusses the importance of the political conversations inspired by the Black Panther film.

They say that time heals all wounds. It does not.

Paramount Network has teamed up with executive producer Shawn Carter for a landmark television event, “Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story,” based on the life and legacy of Trayvon Martin.

LeBron James’ On-Court Moves Still Mystify (Video)

Unbelievable… until you see it… then we are forced to believe in the impossible! Sorry… nearly impossible! And the commentary on the moment was epic:

It goes through Thompson’s legs. It goes through THOMPSON’S legs!!

Even seasoned vets were amazed at the move King James made.

Chadwick Boseman Surprises “Black Panther” Fans (Video)

That sly Jimmy Fallon. He’s done this before: Put unsuspecting admirers in a room and have them speak to the person they admire as if that person were there… then all of a sudden, the celebrity appears…

But this clip of that setup feels different. Chadwick Boseman is still probably getting his head around how important the part he plays is; as well as how it was portrayed. By now, though, his heart ought to ‘get it.’

Nipsey Hussle Stays True To Himself, Even If It Means Being ‘Uncomfortable’ (Video)

You get the furthest being authentic…

And that’s that if you ask Nip Hussle. While he kinda went with the temp of the room (e.g. the rest of the guys declaring that your ‘approach’ should fit the circumstances), Nipsey did hold to the ‘no code-switching’ mode. Gotta believe that being Hussle made him a boss. Why would he change his persona for anyone, in any situation? Respect.

The rapper chats with the men of “BET’s Mancave” about being uncomfortable.

Tracy Morgan Stars In “The Last OG” (Series Trailer)

This new TBS series seems to be a really good look for Tracy Morgan’s return to television, esp. with Tiffany Haddish (making it even a ‘gooder’ look, sexy) who still has a hot iron to strike with.

Tray (Tracy Morgan) is an ex-con who is shocked to see just how much the world has changed when he is released from prison for good behavior after a 15-year stint. Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, he discovers that his former girlfriend, Shay (Tiffany Haddish), has married an affable, successful white man (Ryan Gaul) who is helping raise the twins (Taylor Mosby and Dante Hoagland) Tray never knew existed. Wanting nothing more than to connect with his kids, but having neither the money to support them nor himself, Tray falls back on the skills he learned in prison to make ends meet while treading unfamiliar territory.

DJ Envy Gives ‘The Real’ On His Extra-Marital Affair (Video)

Can a marriage recover from cheating? Cheating involving a public figure that becomes a public thing??? Well, DJ Envy and his wifey will tell you, “Yes.” Buuuut, if Tyrese Gibson (yeah, the singer/actor) is going to come to a private dining room and put a mini-concert for the couple… AND call and counsel and support you on the daily going forward… Well, that has to help your chances, too.

SYFY Set To Tell The Story Of ‘The House Of El’ On “Krypton” (Trailer)

Okay, I’ll be there for this. Not an avid fan of SYFY series, but the channel has put out a couple of gems. Hope this one is good.

The legacy of the House of El is no longer safe. Brainiac is coming. Rao help us all.
Krypton premieres 3.21 on SYFY.

In particular, I want to see how the ‘House Of El’ will play out. Jor-El – father of Kal-El (aka Superman) – and most of the El ancestry is not known to us; which is good because that means there is a greatly-reduced chance of making fanboys and purists upset.

And there has been talk of the Kryptonian deity Rao on The CW series “Supergirl.” I’m interested in that story angle, too. Seeing as how Superman is pretty much a ‘god’ on Earth… what does a god’s god and religion ‘look like’ in this canon?

Of course, there is Brainiac. If they f**k that story arc up there will be consequences and repercussions!

How To Get Gun Control Legislation Passed NOW (Video)

Okay, so you see Trevor Noah with Neal Brennan at The Daily Show desk on COMEDY Central. So, it is okay – even expected – for you to laugh. But dude’s idea is brilliant, and it actually worked… back in the ’60s. Score one for #BlackPanther for real #AmericanSymbolsMatter
