TV Junkie: More Advertisers Dump Beck; Groundling to 'SNL'; Dern Scores Series

Laura Dern as Katherine Harris in HBO's "Recount"
Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We're happy to see more advertisers pull themselves from FOX's Glenn Beck show. Hate speech isn't free speech.
We're also happy to see two new female cast members for "Saturday Night Live": best of luck to you Jenny Slate and Nasim Pedrad (of Groundlings fame!).
HBO is giving the green light to yet another comedy, this one starring Laura Dern as a woman whose spiritual awakening wreaks havoc on her home and work life. We've loved Laura Dern since we first saw her in Blue Velvet and her hilarious portrayal of Floridian harpy Katherine Harris in HBO's "Recount" last year contributed to landing this series.The TV Junkie Plan: The Magnificent Seven, "Big Brother", Conan, Fallon.
