Default Stream-Me News

A Hollywood Insider Exclusive:
Gen-TV Renews Stream-Me Series

Gen-TV Studios went to work today announcing renewals for several programs airing on the Stream-Me internet streaming service. A multiple season renewal was given to sitcom "Single Again" which completed its sixth season on the service after moving their from TV One in May 2019. The studio has renewed "Single Again" for a seventh and eighth seasons. The seventh season will debut this summer on Stream-ME. When announcing the renewal, Gen-TV Vice President Amy Fung-Wilson said "Single Again has been a complete success for Gen-TV and has struck a real cord with viewers who relate to the universal struggles of looking for love and acceptance." "We are proud to continue this series for two more seasons."

Also being renewed is "Outdoor Renovation" which moved to Stream-ME for a fourth season after being off-air for over two years when it was cancelled by YTN (it is produced by Gen-TV Studios). The fourth season did well with viewers and the series will return later this year.

Gen-TV is also issuing a surprise renewal to "Faded Beauties" a Gen-TV Studios program that aired on Bravo for three seasons before getting cancelled. A fourth season aired on Stream-ME this past fall and averaged a 4.5 in demos. It has been renewed for a fifth season, which will once again feature Pamela Anderson in a starring role. The fifth season will debut later in 2020.

Gen-TV has also decided to renew freshmen drama "Hunted" which stars Melina Kanakaredes and Jack Cutmore-Scott. Focused on bounty hunters, the series did only moderately well when it debuted in September; but apparently Gen-TV has faith in the program and is giving it a second season to debut this summer on Stream-ME.

Now for the bad news, Gen-TV has decided against a second season of "The Strangler", a limited run series that aired to little fanfare or press during December of 2019. Though it had a star studded cast including Colin Farrell, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kevin Costner, Ben Affleck, Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Kerry Washington and Nick Jonas; it fared poorly with viewers and is among the least-streamed series online in 2019.

Gen-TV has several new series ready to launch on Stream-ME later this year; they include an original comedy called "Burger Palace", a coming of age story set in a fast food restaurant in the late 1990's. They also have two drama series set to launch "US Intelligence", a spy drama and "CPS: Los Angeles" a procedural focused on the LA branch of Child Protective Services.

Now for the biggest news, Gen-TV has renewed original drama "Finding Home" for a fourth season. The third season of the drama moved from Showtime to Stream-ME and was seen by nearly four million viewers. A fourth season will debut later in 2020; with Carrie Preston and Susan Sarandon returning. Sources close to Gen-TV tell us that "the fourth season is likely to be a supersized season consisting of 28-30 episodes, enough to get the series to 100 episodes for syndication." "Gen-TV sees great potential in this drama to hit big in syndication." "The belief is that the more viewers who see this show, the more popular it will become."

Best of TV Awards:
--2020 Winners Announced

Winners were announced on Sunday, January 26th for the "Best of TV Awards." It aired on both Gen-TV and Starz and was hosted by ten iconic television performers who each presented various themed categories.

Gen-TV was the big winner of the evening with 47 wins. YTN took home 15 trophies while the remaining categories were evenly split between HBO and NBC with 4 wins each, FX and Netflix with 3 each, 2 wins for CBs and 1 each for Showtime, Pop TV, Amazon, and The CW. Among streaming networks, Hulu went home empty handed despite having three nominations.


Here is the full list of winners in each category, presented with commentary from the editors of Hollywood Now:


Drama Categories:


Best Drama Series:
Revolution, YTN


--other nominees:
Game of Thrones, HBO
The Border Police, Gen-TV
Taken, YTN
Killing Eve, BBC America
This Is Us, NBC
Prodigal Son, FOX
Fugitive Recovery, Gen-TV
Newsflash, YTN


YTN’s “Revolution” came virtually out of nowhere to take home the top prize in the drama series category. Hollywood Now editors were predicting this category could be home to an upset, but most were expecting “Prodigal Son” or “Killing Eve” to be that spoiler. We are actually thrilled that “Revolution” is the victor. This show has intelligent writing, produced thoughtfully and has a relevance in today’s political climate that is exciting in a way that other shows are not. “Other shows like The Border Police for example feel forced in a way the Revolution does not.”


Best Lead Actor, Drama Series:
Jeffery Nordling, The Border Police, Gen-TV
Sterling K Brown, This Is Us, NBC


Other Nominees:
James Van Der Beek, Boston Blues, Gen-TV
Kit Harrington, Game of Thrones, HBO
Ryan Eggold, New Amsterdam, NBC
Tom Payne, Prodigal Son, FOX
Eion Bailey, The Border Police, Gen-TV
Milo Ventimiglia, This Is Us, NBC
Enrico Colantoni, Virus, YTN
Alan Arkin, Taken, YTN
Benjamin Bratt, Bloodlines, YTN
Mark Harmon, NCIS, CBS

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: Sterling K Brown (“This Is Us”, NBC) and Jeffery Nordling (“The Border Police”, Gen-TV) were the winners in the “Best Lead Actor-Drama” category. Both men are worthy choices, and were among the favorites of Hollywood Now staff members. However, it would have been nice to see Alan Arkin (“Taken”, YTN) or Kit Harrington (“Game of Thrones”, HBO) win something. Nordling took home his award for his work as a US Border Control Agent who is slowly coming to resent his job and question his loyalty to both his job and his country as he has a crisis of faith over the laws he must enforce. Brown won for his work as Randall Pearson on NBC’s sentimental family drama.


Best Lead Actress, Drama Series:
Marianne-Jean Baptiste, Taken, YTN

Other Nominees:
Jodi Comer, Killing Eve, BBC America
Mandy Moore, This Is Us, NBC
Regina Hall, Having Faith, Gen-TV
Simone Missick, All Rise, CBS
Viola Davis, How To Get Away with Murder, ABC
Sela Ward, Bloodlines, YTN
Connie Nielsen, Taken, YTN
Shohre Agdashloo, The Border Police, Gen-TV

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: YTN picks up another big victory in the “Lead Actress-Drama” category with “Taken’s” Marianne-Jean Baptiste. She garnered votes from 87% of the voting body and is an inspired choice. Hollywood Now Staffers had her in our top three choices, but were predicting a win for Regina Hall of Gen-TV’s “Having Faith.”


Supporting Actor, Drama Series:
Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones, HBO

Other Nominees:
Justin Hartley, This Is Us, NBC
Sterling K Brown, This Is Us, NBC
Matthew Settle, Deadly Visions, Gen-TV
Dallas Roberts, Medical Center, Gen-TV

Hollywood Now’s Commenatry: HBO scores its only win of the evening for Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”). The majority of pundits had predicted this win; including Hollywood Now editors who were the first to call this one.

Supporting Actress, Drama Series:
Kimberly Elise, Trauma Center, Gen-TV

Other Nominees:
Vivica A Fox, Having Faith, Gen-TV
Jada Pinkett-Smith, Having Faith, Gen-TV
Vanessa Angel, Boston Blues, Gen-TV
Susie Kelechi Watson, This Is Us, NBC
Meryl Streep, Big Little Lies, HBO

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: This category proved to be the biggest headscratcher for pundits; nearly all of whom were predicting Meryl Streep would claim the title for “Big Little Lies”. In a very distant second among predictions was Vivica A. Fox for “Having Faith.” The other component that is puzzling is that Kimberly Elise’s character on “Trauma Center” was universally despised; both by critics and viewers. The introduction of her character actually saw an 80% decrease in viewership and got the show cancelled. Elise however, Is a wonderful actress who was saddled with a difficult role to play.


Writing, Drama Series:
The Border Police, Gen-TV
Taken, YTN

Other Nominees:
Game of Thrones, HBO
The Good Fight, CBS All Access
Boston Blues, Gen-TV
All Rise, CBS
Prodigal Son, FOX
This Is Us, NBC
Grey’s Anatomy, ABC
Revolution, YTN
Virus, YTN
Big Little Lies, HBO

Both YTN and Gen-TV scored victories in the “Best Writing-Drama Series”. YTN for “Taken” and Gen-TV for “The Border Police.” Both series are better than average crime procedurals centered by compelling performances from stars of high wattage.

Directing, Drama Series:
Bloodlines, YTN

Other Nominees:
Boston Blues, Gen-TV
Game of Thrones, HBO
The Good Fight, CBS All Access
Killing Eve, BBC America
Virus, YTN
Big Little Lies, HBO

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: YTN’s “Bloodlines” won the “Directing-Drama Series” award for the first time. Gen-TV had to sit this one out.


Comedy Categories:

Kate & Ali, Gen-TV
Blended, YTN Network
Grandparents, YTN

Mother & Daughter, YTN
Ready To Wear, Gen-TV
Will & Grace, NBC
The Good Place, NBC
Baker’s Dozen, Gen-TV
Schitt’s Creek, Pop TV


Hollywood Now’s Commentary: Unlike other award shows like for example “The Emmy Awards”, The “Best of TV Awards” does not limit the number of winners in a given category and the winners are determined by a percentage of the votes given.” So a given category can have any number of winners so long as they’ve received votes from “at least 60% of the voting body.” In this case, Gen-TV’s Kate & Ali” won the award for the second year in a row. YTN also scored two victories with “Blended” and “Grandparents.”
The victory of “Kate & Ali” is well deserved as the series continues to showcase the daily struggles of being a minority and a single parent trying to raise children in a world that doesn’t always want you to succeed.” The brilliant writing from Keegan-Michael Key is some of the smartest social commentary on TV because he grounds the commentary in humanity and heart. “Blended” also tackles issues of identity and focuses on a mixed-race family trying to survive. Lastly, the broad comedy of “Grandparents” boasts an impressive team of brilliant writers and some of the most sophisticated storylines on TV.


Best Lead Actor, Comedy:
Keegan-Michael Key, Kate & Ali, Gen-TV
Drake Bell, College, YTN
Rider Strong, Baker’s Dozen, Gen-TV


Other Nominees:

Mark Paul Gosslear, Mixed-Ish, ABC
Michael Douglas, The Kominsky Method, Netflix
Josh Cooke, Bless Your Heart, Gen-TV
Eugene Levy, Schitt’s Creek, Pop TV
Hank Azaria, Blended, YTN
Patton Oswalt, The Hughes Family, YTN

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: Like their female counterparts, the men of “Lead Actor-Comedy” all represent vastly different styles of comedy, prestige and popularity. Keegan-Michael Key (“Kate & Ali”, Gen-TV) infuses his series with political and social commentary, heart and humanity. Drake Bell (“College”, YTN) steals scenes with broad physical comedy and Rider Strong (“Baker’s Dozen”, Gen-TV) gave a tour de force performance as his character burst out of the closet and shed the pain of hiding his true self as he entered his first relationship with a man.


Best Lead Actress, Comedy:
Catherine O’Hara, Schitt’s Creek, Pop TV
Kaley Cuoco, The Big Bang Theory, CBS

Octavia Spencer, Selling Out, Gen-TV
Kristen Bell, The Good Place, NBC
Regina King, Blended, YTN
Rachel Dratch, The Hughes Family, YTN
Aubrey Plaza, The High Times of Denver, YTN

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: The three winners for “Lead Actress-Comedy Series” represent a diverse and incredibly talented group of characters. Catherine O’Hara (“Schitt’s Creek”, Pop TV) is an eccentric former millionaire forced to move to the one asset her family has left, a middle of nowhere town called “Schitt’s Creek.” Also picking up a win is Kaley Cuoco for the final season of CBS juggernaut “The Big Bang Theory.” Lastly, Gen-TV scored a victory with Kristen Wiig for “The Boss Lady.”
Hollywood Now Staffers were very wrong about this category, predicting Zooey Deschanel would win for “Ready To Wear” and also predicting Kristen Bell as a spoiler for “The Good Place.”

Best Supporting Actor, Comedy:
Mikey Day, Saturday Night Live, NBC
Jake Lacey, Bless Your Heart, Gen-TV


Other Nominees:
Sean Hayes, Will & Grace, NBC
Henry Winkler, Barry, HBO

Ted Danson, The Good Place, NBC
Alex Moffat, Saturday Night Live, NBC
Chris Colfer, Baker’s Dozen, Gen-TV
Colin Jost, Saturday Night Live, NBC
Gary Cole, Mixed-Is, ABC

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: There were two actors chosen as “Supporting Actor-Comedy” Jake Lacey (“Bless Your Heart”, Gen-TV) and Mikey Day (“Saturday Night Live”, NBC). One is a exceptional sketch performer and the other a gifted actor with many layers of depth. Lacey does fine work opposite Cardi B and elevates her every performance.

Best Supporting Actress, Comedy:
Whoopi Goldberg, Café Oddity, Gen-TV
Chloe Grace Moretz, Full Time Mom, YTN

Hollywood Now’s Commenatry: This category was packed with talent and deserving choices; but only two were selected as winners this year. Chloe Grace Moretz (“Full Time Mom”, YTN) and Whoopi Goldberg (“Café Oddity”, Gen-TV.) Goldberg won here due to her sheer star power. She essentially took over the show with her presence and added a much needed layer of depth to this show. Chloe Grace Mortez is the youthful energy of this group and represents some of the finest acting of her generation.



Best Writing, Comedy Series:
Ready To Wear, Gen-TV

Other Nominees:
Veep, HBO
Fleabag, Amazon
Saturday Night Live, NBC
Will & Grace, NBC
Black-Ish, ABC
The Hughes Family, YTN
Grandparents, YTN

Kate & Ali, Gen-TV

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: “Ready To Wear” won the award for “Best Writing-Comedy Series” and beat out the likes of “Veep” (HBO) for its final season, “Kate & Ali” (YTN) which won the Comedy Series category this year; and “Fleabag” (Amazon) which has won nearly every comedy award this season. If a Gen-TV show was going to win our money was on “Kate & Ali” but “Ready To Wear” is a popular show too and it had to win somewhere.

Other Nominees:

The Loudest Voice, Showtime
Fosse/Verdon, FX

The Hardest Goodbye, Gen-TV
Maria’s Quinceañera, Gen-TV

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: We are truly stunned that Gen-TV’s “Love Affair” is the winner of the inaugural “Best TV Movie, Limited Series or Anthology Series” Award. Our money was on “American Citizen” to grab this one up. “Fosse/Verdon” was also one of our top picks. However, Gen-TV’s anthology series about tragic romances had a fantastic season and wisely submitted a thrilling arch of episodes featuring Jodie Foster’s brilliant direction focused on a tragic romance between two nuns in the 1960’s. This is actually a very bold choice for the voters to make.

Emily Watson, Chernobyl
Jodie Foster, Love Affair, Gen-TV

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: Diane Lane won the “Lead Actress-TV Movie, Limited Series or Anthology Series” award for her work in “If Hillary Had Won” and defeated Jodie Foster for “Love Affair” and Michelle Williams for “Fosse/Verdon.” Hollywood Now’s top choice was Naomi Watts. Diane is an inspired choice for her role as Hillary Clinton who in this series had won the Presidency in 2016 and is fighting for reelection while fighting a major political scandal


Best Lead Actor, TV Movie, Limited Series or Anthology Series:

Jeremy Renner, Love Affair, Gen-TV
Russell Crowe, The Loudest Voice, Showtime



Other Nominees:
Sam Rockwell, The Hardest Goodbye, Gen-TV
Joshua Jackson, The Hardest Goodbye, Gen-TV
Jamie Foxx, Love Affair, Gen-TV
Josh Hartnett, The Hardest Goodbye, Gen-TV
Sam Rockwell, Fosse/Verdon

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: The two winners of the “Lead Actor-TV Movie, Limited Series, Anthology Series” category are as different as can be. Russell Crowe for his portrayal of disgraced media executive Roger Ailes in “The Loudest Voice” and Jeremy Renner as a tragic politician involved in a politically difficult romance with his arch enemies wife. Renner’s win is another victory for Gen-TV.


Best Supporting Actress, TV Movie, Limited Series or Anthology Series:
Sigourney Weaver, The Hardest Goodbye, Gen-TV

Other Nominees:
Zoey Deutch, Love Affair, Gen-TV
Patricia Arquette, The Act, Hulu
Chloe Sevigny, The Act, Hulu
Niecy Nash, When They See Us, Netflix
Holly Hunter, The Hardest Goodbye, Gen-TV
Courtney Thorne-Smith, The Hardest Goodbye, Gen-TV

Best Supporting Actor, TV Movie, Limited Series or Anthology Series:

Ben Whishaw, A Very English Scandal, Amazon

Other Nominees:
Paul Dano, Escape at Dannomera, Showtime
John Leguizamo, When They See Us, Netflix
Asante Black, When They See Us, Netflix

Love Affair, Gen-TV

Other Nominees:
If Hillary Had Won, Gen-TV
American Citizen, Gen-TV
Chernobyl, HBO
When They See Us, Netflix
The Act, Hulu
Fosse/Verdon, FX

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: Jodie Foster wins a “Best of TV Award” for writing the submitted episodes of “Love Affair” that earned Gen-TV’s anthology series the win here tonight for “Best Writing, TV Movie (etc).” It is a win that is more than well deserved.


Best Directing, Movie, Limited Series or Anthology Series:
When They See Us, Netflix
Love Affair, Gen-TV


Other Nominees:
The Hardest Goodbye, Gen-TV
If Hillary Had Won, Gen-TV
Fosse/Verdon, FX
A Very English Scandal, Amazon
Chernobyl, HBO

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: The only two nominees to score enough votes for a win were Netflix’s “When They See Us” and Gen-TV’s “Love Affair” which has dominated the Limited Series/Movie categories this year. The recipients of this award are comprised of any director who was credited on-screen on any episode submitted for consideration in this category. For “Love Affair” that was Jodie Foster, Ava DuVernay and Laura Innes. For “When They See Us” it was Ava DuVernay.

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: “Climb the Pyramid: Family Edition” is the sole winner of the “Best Reality or Unscripted Show” category. This victory is a huge surprise as most pundits were predicting a win for “Family Court” or a rejuvenated “Project Runway.” However, the success of this family friendly program over the summer makes it a deserving choice. Aside from delivering strong ratings it was a critical success as well.

Morning Talk, Gen-TV

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: Gen-TV’s rowdy, raunchy and ridiculously funny talk show “Hot Flashes” was a winner in the “News, Documentary or Talk Show” category and is a darn deserving choice. Featuring a cast of panelists all over the age of 50 and sponsored by the AARP, this show does something no other show on TV does; embrace the reality of being old in America. It is the only talk show on TV starring women over 50 that deliberately embraces their age as a positive thing.

Gen-TV’s new talk show “Hot Flashes” also scored wins for both Wanda Sykes and Morgan Fairchild.

Wendy Diaz, Survivor, CBS

Other Nominees:
Eric Girardi, Nailed It, Netflix
Fredrik Eklund, Million Dollar Listing: NYC, Bravo
Rhylee Gerber, Below Deck, Bravo

Hollywoood Now’s Commentary: Neither Gen-TV or YTN were nominated in this category; and the winner went to Wendy Diaz from CBS’s “Suvrivor.” There were no strong predictions from pundits who were split evenly amongst the nominees in what is considered a weak category.

Gen-TV’s “Having Faith” is also a deserving winner. Lastly, but not least YTN’s “Newsflash” picks up a trophy for “Best New Program” with its topical and engaging look at a daily lives of a newspaper editor and her team of journalists.

Default Production has completed on three

A Hollywood Now Report
--- Two Series Finish Filming

Two classic Gen-TV sitcoms have completed filming their final episodes, marking the end of an era. "Making It Work" has finished filming its series finale and ending its historic seven season run on Gen-TV. It ranks among Gen-TV's longest-running series ever (third among comedies) and is among the most critically respected comedies the network has ever seen.

"Every Other Weekend" has also finished its production run, ending after four seasons and over 100 episodes. It debuted as a mid-season replacement in January 2017 and after a rocky first start was just barely renewed due to critical support. The performances of its lead cast, in particular Christina Applegate, Sarah Chalke and Peter Facinelli were praised by critics and earned nominations at the 2017 Emmy's, Golden Globes, SAG Awards and Critics Choice Awards. Applegate was cited by TV Guide in 2017 as "The breakout star of the show" and her performance cited as "reminding us of what we already knew---that Applegate is a gifted performer who can mine comedy out of the smallest of details." "She expertly transitions from icy cold evil yuppie stepmother one minute and into vulnerable and fearful wife who is worried about losing her status in life the next."

Both series will continue to air until May and the series finales of both will be a huge part of Gen-TV's May Sweeps period.

HOLLYWOOD INSIDER

YTN CANCELS "BETTER DAYS", RESHUFFLES SCHEDULE
YTN has cancelled Better Days after five episodes. The network confirmed the move is immediate, and the remaining episodes will air at a later date.

In its place, YTN will air the second season of drama Newsflash. After airing all of season one on Sunday nights, the series will move to the coveted post-CIA Files timeslot.

To accommodate the premiere, YTN has also pulled tomorrow nights episode of CIA Files. The series was expected to take a two week hiatus after tomorrow nights episode. YTN is moving that brief hiatus up, and will bring back the veteran drama the same night as the premiere of Newsflash - Monday, February 24th.

Newsflash has a 13 episode second season order.

The move means veteran drama High Times of Denver will air two episodes for the first two weeks by itself. It has its season premiere tomorrow night.

Winners were announced on Sunday, January 26th for the "Best of TV Awards." It aired on both Gen-TV and Starz and was hosted by ten iconic television performers who each presented various themed categories.

Gen-TV was the big winner of the evening with 47 wins. YTN took home 15 trophies while the remaining categories were evenly split between HBO and NBC with 4 wins each, FX and Netflix with 3 each, 2 wins for CBs and 1 each for Showtime, Pop TV, Amazon, and The CW. Among streaming networks, Hulu went home empty handed despite having three nominations.


Here is the full list of winners in each category, presented with commentary from the editors of Hollywood Now:


Drama Categories:


Best Drama Series:
Revolution, YTN


--other nominees:
Game of Thrones, HBO
The Border Police, Gen-TV
Taken, YTN
Killing Eve, BBC America
This Is Us, NBC
Prodigal Son, FOX
Fugitive Recovery, Gen-TV
Newsflash, YTN


YTN’s “Revolution” came virtually out of nowhere to take home the top prize in the drama series category. Hollywood Now editors were predicting this category could be home to an upset, but most were expecting “Prodigal Son” or “Killing Eve” to be that spoiler. We are actually thrilled that “Revolution” is the victor. This show has intelligent writing, produced thoughtfully and has a relevance in today’s political climate that is exciting in a way that other shows are not. “Other shows like The Border Police for example feel forced in a way the Revolution does not.”


Best Lead Actor, Drama Series:
Jeffery Nordling, The Border Police, Gen-TV
Sterling K Brown, This Is Us, NBC


Other Nominees:
James Van Der Beek, Boston Blues, Gen-TV
Kit Harrington, Game of Thrones, HBO
Ryan Eggold, New Amsterdam, NBC
Tom Payne, Prodigal Son, FOX
Eion Bailey, The Border Police, Gen-TV
Milo Ventimiglia, This Is Us, NBC
Enrico Colantoni, Virus, YTN
Alan Arkin, Taken, YTN
Benjamin Bratt, Bloodlines, YTN
Mark Harmon, NCIS, CBS

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: Sterling K Brown (“This Is Us”, NBC) and Jeffery Nordling (“The Border Police”, Gen-TV) were the winners in the “Best Lead Actor-Drama” category. Both men are worthy choices, and were among the favorites of Hollywood Now staff members. However, it would have been nice to see Alan Arkin (“Taken”, YTN) or Kit Harrington (“Game of Thrones”, HBO) win something. Nordling took home his award for his work as a US Border Control Agent who is slowly coming to resent his job and question his loyalty to both his job and his country as he has a crisis of faith over the laws he must enforce. Brown won for his work as Randall Pearson on NBC’s sentimental family drama.

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: YTN picks up another big victory in the “Lead Actress-Drama” category with “Taken’s” Marianne-Jean Baptiste.

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: This category proved to be the biggest headscratcher for pundits; nearly all of whom were predicting Meryl Streep would claim the title for “Big Little Lies”. In a very distant second among predictions was Vivica A. Fox for “Having Faith.” The other component that is puzzling is that Kimberly Elise’s character on “Trauma Center” was universally despised; both by critics and viewers. The introduction of her character actually saw an 80% decrease in viewership and got the show cancelled. Elise however, Is a wonderful actress who was saddled with a difficult role to play.

The Good Place, NBC
Baker’s Dozen, Gen-TV
Schitt’s Creek, Pop TV


Hollywood Now’s Commentary: Unlike other award shows like for example “The Emmy Awards”, The “Best of TV Awards” does not limit the number of winners in a given category and the winners are determined by a percentage of the votes given.” So a given category can have any number of winners so long as they’ve received votes from “at least 60% of the voting body.” In this case, Gen-TV’s Kate & Ali” won the award for the second year in a row. YTN also scored two victories with “Blended” and “Grandparents.”
The victory of “Kate & Ali” is well deserved as the series continues to showcase the daily struggles of being a minority and a single parent trying to raise children in a world that doesn’t always want you to succeed.” The brilliant writing from Keegan-Michael Key is some of the smartest social commentary on TV because he grounds the commentary in humanity and heart. “Blended” also tackles issues of identity and focuses on a mixed-race family trying to survive. Lastly, the broad comedy of “Grandparents” boasts an impressive team of brilliant writers and some of the most sophisticated storylines on TV.

Eugene Levy, Schitt’s Creek, Pop TV
Hank Azaria, Blended, YTN
Patton Oswalt, The Hughes Family, YTN

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: Like their female counterparts, the men of “Lead Actor-Comedy” all represent vastly different styles of comedy, prestige and popularity. Keegan-Michael Key (“Kate & Ali”, Gen-TV) infuses his series with political and social commentary, heart and humanity. Drake Bell (“College”, YTN) steals scenes with broad physical comedy and Rider Strong (“Baker’s Dozen”, Gen-TV) gave a tour de force performance as his character burst out of the closet and shed the pain of hiding his true self as he entered his first relationship with a man.

Hollywood Now Staffers were very wrong about this category, predicting Zooey Deschanel would win for “Ready To Wear” and also predicting Kristen Bell as a spoiler for “The Good Place.”

She essentially took over the show with her presence and added a much needed layer of depth to this show.

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: We are truly stunned that Gen-TV’s “Love Affair” is the winner of the inaugural “Best TV Movie, Limited Series or Anthology Series” Award. Our money was on “American Citizen” to grab this one up. “Fosse/Verdon” was also one of our top picks. However, Gen-TV’s anthology series about tragic romances had a fantastic season and wisely submitted a thrilling arch of episodes featuring Jodie Foster’s brilliant direction focused on a tragic romance between two nuns in the 1960’s. This is actually a very bold choice for the voters to make.

Russell Crowe, The Loudest Voice, Showtime

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: “Climb the Pyramid: Family Edition” is the sole winner of the “Best Reality or Unscripted Show” category. This victory is a huge surprise as most pundits were predicting a win for “Family Court” or a rejuvenated “Project Runway.” However, the success of this family friendly program over the summer makes it a deserving choice.

Hollywood Now’s Commentary: Gen-TV’s rowdy, raunchy and ridiculously funny talk show “Hot Flashes” was a winner in the “News, Documentary or Talk Show” category and is a darn deserving choice. Featuring a cast of panelists all over the age of 50 and sponsored by the AARP, this show does something no other show on TV does; embrace the reality of being old in America.

Hollywoood Now’s Commentary: Neither Gen-TV or YTN were nominated in this category; and the winner went to Wendy Diaz from CBS’s “Suvrivor.” There were no strong predictions from pundits who were split evenly amongst the nominees in what is considered a weak category.

Default Board of Directors Election

With just over a month until Gen-TV votes in its new Board of Directors; the election cycle is in full swing and there have been some big developments.

The biggest news was Eva Vargas entering the race and she was viewed at the onset as a disrupter in this race. However, her candidacy has proven to be a non-starter and it seems that sentiments and votes are swinging away from her and in the favor of a different candidate; Benny Portman who has been leading all the recent polls by nearly a 30% margin over second-place choice Ross Chin.

Polls have been conducted by Hollywood Insider and Hollywood Now where we asked members of the Gen-TV Board to select which candidate they intend to vote for and Portman has the lead with 60% of the respondents indicating they would vote for him. Ross Chin is in second place with 22% saying they intended to vote for him. Eva is actually in fourth place with only 11% of the respondents claiming her as their top choice. Of course these polls are hardly scientific and voting members could go any number of different directions.

This years election is proving to be far more low-key than the 2016 election which ended up having two candidates charged on felony voter tampering charges and had the FBI called in to investigate threats levied against one candidate from another.
Gen-TV Elects New President
--Gen-TV's Board of Directors Election

Gen-TV's Board of Directors held its 2020 election on Thursday, February 6th and have elected a new board President. In a very decisive victory, Ross Chin was voted in as the President of the Board of Directors. Chin won by a wide margin with votes from nearly 87% of the boards voting membership.

The results were stunning as Benny Portman had been polling ahead of both Chin and Vargas by wide margins all year long. Dylan Garretson was in fourth place.

Here is the approximate breakdown of votes:

Ross Chin (Winner)--- 87%
Eva Vargas (Runner-Up)--9%
Benny Portman--3%
Dylan Garretson---1%

According to interviews conducted with voting members after the election; the decision to pick Ross Chin was an easy one with "trustworthiness", "experience" and "respectability" being the key factors in why he was their choice.

When asked about Eva Vargas many member stated she "wasn't trustworthy enough" and "had a stigma attached to her." Others said "she tarnishes our companies reputation" and "is out for her own fame and doesn't care about anybody else's needs."

According to new membership rules the President Elect now chooses their Vice President and shortly after being elected Ross Chin named Benny Portman as his Vice President. Additional board roles include Executive Secretary, Executive Treasurer, Executive Assistant to Board President and a newly created role being introduced this year called Executive Liaison-General Membership. This new role is designed to serve as the primary day to day contact for the general membership of the board (in other words, for all non-executive level members).

Here is the newly formed Executive Leadership of Gen-TV's Board of Directors:

President: Ross Chin
Vice President: Benny Portman
Executive Secretary: Dylan Garretson (chosen by Benny Portman)
Executive Treasurer: Travis Malwell Irons (chosen by Ross Chin)
Executive Assistant to President: Naomi Lakelia Lahoni (chosen by Benny Portman)
Executive Assistant to Vice President: Marjorie Adderson-Harper (chosen by Ross Chin)
Executive Liaison-General Membership: Tyrell Karter "T.K." Washington (elected by members in a 97% victory over opponent Lydia Kelsey-Campbell)

Voting took place at Gen-TV Studios massive Los Angeles compound, which houses its production studios and soundstages, executive offices and the incredible board of directors suites that include a large-scale auditorium allegedly modeled after the United States Senate. Voting began by secret ballot at 2:15pm and was completed by 3:25pm. After secret ballots were all submitted and counted it was time for members to verbally confirm their votes with a simple "yay" or "nay" to confirm their vote was correctly tallied. This process was completed at 5:35pm.

It was clear by 4:26pm that Ross Chin had a clear victory over the other candidates and the outgoing President asked all affected parties to consider conceding. Eva Vargas was the first to call her concession followed by Dylan Garrettson. Benny Portman waited until all votes were confirmed to give his concession speech.

Ross Chin walked to the podium to accept the Presidency and gave a brief speech thanking the candidates for running a clean and ethical campaign and promising to assure that Gen-TV is run in a moral and ethical manner. It was then that he named Benny Portman as his Vice President and Portman rose to thank him and announced Dylan Garretson as his choice for Executive Secretary. The other roles were confirmed later in the week in a company memo that was sent on on Friday.

In addition to running all board meetings; the President of Gen-TV's Board of Directors is the primary figure of authority regarding all of Gen-TV's financial matters and has in recent years become a secondary CEO to the company. For compensation the board President receives an annual salary of just over 526,000 a year plus numerous bonuses, commissions and incentives.

The Vice President receives an annual salary of 410,000 a year; while the other Executive Members all receive salaries ranging from 300,000 at the high end to 110,000 at the low end.

Due to board rules, the Executive Leadership are elected to four-year terms, but must be reconfirmed by a majority of the membership (at least 75%) in two-years or they will not be permitted to finish their four-year term and a new election will be held to fill the role.
