Hollywood News Banter

Hosted by

Matt Belloni, executive editor of the Hollywood Reporter joins Kim Masters to discuss top entertainment news stories of the week.

  • Warner Brothers is counting on a huge opening for Suicide Squad, but will it do well enough over time to turn things around for the beleaguered studio? The bad reviews certainly aren't helping.
  • Outgoing Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson's allegations of sexual harassment led to an investigation that resulted in the ousting of news chief Roger Ailes. Now, an ever-expanding investigation at the network shows troubling signs of a culture rife with sexual misconduct and cover-ups.
  • The Olympics are underway in Rio, and despite threats of disease and violence, NBC is going all-in, selling $1.2 billion in ads and creating 6,700 hours of programming around the events.
