Hollywood News Banter

Hosted by

TV Guide magazine chief content officer Michael Schneider joins Kim Masters to discuss top entertainment news stories of the week.

  • With Telluride over and Toronto kicking off, awards season is officially under way. After Telluride, the movie to watch seems to be Black Mass, featuring a strong performance from an almost unrecognizable Johnny Depp.
  • Colbert is back! Stephen Colbert made his debut as the host of The Late Show on CBS. Ratings were strong the first night, but dipped on night two. The first couple of weeks will likely involve Colbert finding his legs as the new host.
  • Remember Zero Dark Thirty? Vice News did an extensive investigation and found that director Kathryn Bigelow and writer and producer Mark Boal gave gifts to members of the CIA. Hoping to get information for their film, they reportedly gave expensive jewelry, dinners and even a bottle of tequila to CIA agents.
