Hollywood News Banter

Hosted by and

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

  • Emmy nominations are out, and yes there were some snubs (sorry, The Americans and Jane the Virgin), but the TV Academy has made more diverse selections than in years past. For the first time, two African American women are nominated for best actress in a dramatic series -- Taraji P. Henson for Empire and Viola Davis for How to Get Away with Murder. Plus, Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany finally gets the nomination many say she deserved for years.
  • Donald Trump says he's made almost $214 million from the NBC show The Apprentice. That number may seem outrageous, but considering Trump is part owner of the show and is a producer as well as the talent, it's possible to see how the income could add up over time. As of recording time, NBC had not confirmed that number.
  • TLC has finally cancelled '19 Kids and Counting' almost two months after the molestation scandal involving Josh Duggar broke. The show had been one of TLC's most popular. The network is now planning to run a one-hour documentary on sexual abuse.
