‘Today,’ ‘Good Morning America’ Slug it Out in New Battle

Broadcast TV’s battle for morning viewers is reaching a new extreme.

Since mid-2012, ABC’s “Good Morning America” has largely held the distinction of being TV’s most-watched morning-news program. It’s not the most important credit in the business, where NBC’s “Today” has long dominated the sunrise shows among the audience Madison Avenue wants the most, people between 25 and 54. But the networks use the most-viewed measure to brag about whose show matters more in the A.M. And it can help woo audiences as well as in the effort to book newsmakers and celebrities.

In recent weeks, the dynamic has appeared to be on the cusp of change.

For seven consecutive weeks, “Today” has been TV’s most-viewed morning program (“Gma” won the most recent week due to some ratings technicalities). And season to date, it is leading its ABC rival in total viewers by the slimmest of margins – just 16,000 viewers. While “[link

Jason Momoa, aka Aquaman, Gets Very Competitive and Very Wet During Water War
Jason Momoa may be good with water, but he's not the best when it comes to playing cards. During an appearance on The Tonight Show, the Aquaman actor got very competitive (and very wet) when he joined host Jimmy Fallon in a game of "Water War." While he wasn't too happy about losing a few rounds, he got really pumped when he was able to hurl water in Jimmy's face. Seriously, he did Not hold back. Let's just say, we wouldn't want to be his partner in a game of cards. Catch the video above, then relive the glory of Chris Hemsworth (aka Thor)'s iconic "Water War."

‘SNL’: Jessica Chastain Breaks Character to Ask What Even Matters Anymore — Watch
Jessica Chastain was excited to host “Saturday Night Live” for the first time last night, but you’d never know it from the show’s most overtly political skit. Playing the host of a game show called “What Even Matters Anymore,” the “Molly’s Game” star eventually broke character as she pondered the current state of affairs under Donald Trump — and why none of the terrible things he does seem to have any consequences. Watch below.

Camila Cabello Performs A Fun Classroom Version Of “Havana” With Jimmy Fallon And The Roots

I kind of think I like this version of Havana from Camilla Cabello with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots just a little better than the radio version. There are times when the music just gets in the way of the lyrics and becomes so much noise that it drowns it out. Sometimes just hearing the basic elements of music along with the lyrics is best simply because it’s easier to get into and doesn’t overwhelm the listener on any particular level. Music is very subjective and doesn’t sound the same to any two people all the time, so it’s all

Jessica Chastain Shows Jimmy Fallon What It’s Like to Be a Woman in Hollywood — Watch
Jessica Chastain has never been shy about advocating for better roles for women in Hollywood, she never misses an opportunity to express her dismay with the status quo, but she tried something a little different last night. In an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Chastain roped Fallon into the cause by letting him do what men do best: Play dumb. Fallon is the perfect male stand-in for average Joes everywhere, and his particular brand of boy-next-door naiveté works well in this context.

Ana Gasteyer on Moving From the Groundlings Troupe to ‘Saturday Night Live’

After getting her start training with the Los Angeles improv-sketch group the Groundlings in the ’90s, Ana Gasteyer booked guest roles on quintessential sitcoms of the decade, including “Seinfeld” (in the infamous 1995 episode “The Soup Nazi”), “Mad About You” and “Just Shoot Me!” In 1996, she joined the cast of “Saturday Night Live,” creating iconic characters that included low-key NPR host Margaret Jo McCullen and impressions of personalities like Martha Stewart and Joan Rivers.

Jessica Chastain Shows Jimmy Fallon What It's Like to Have a Female Role
"I barely got to speak there." That's right, Jimmy Fallon. When it comes to men and women in film, there's clearly an imbalance—one his Thursday night guest Jessica Chastain is trying to prevent. "Female roles have been so underwritten, especially compared to male roles," the Molly's Game star told the late-night host and his audience. So, to demonstrate the need for better female representation specifically in film and television, the two decided to read some scenes, except Fallon would play the female role and the Golden Globe winner would play the male role.
