HOW THE E NETWORK IS HANDLING THE RYAN SEACREST MAYHEM

The RYAN SEACREST sexual harassment scandal isn't going away. In fact, it seems to be picking up steam. And with the "Oscars" happening on Sunday, that's not a good thing for the E! network. So far they're not backing down from having Ryan host their red carpet coverage as usual. But there have been reports that some Hollywood publicists plan on steering their clients AWAY from him.

Sources say E! has been in crisis mode, trying to figure out how to navigate this mess. One of their solutions is to prearrange Ryan's interviews with stars he's friendly with . . . so there are no surprises. Meanwhile, another former co-worker says he WITNESSED Ryan being sexually inappropriate with his accuser, Suzie Hardy. He says that more than once, as Suzie was tying Ryan's shoes, he saw Ryan push her head toward his crotch. More details HERE

 

DID A DELETED TWEET, REVEAL TAYLOR SWIFTS STADIUM TOUR OPENER

Maybe we know what Camila Cabello is doing this summer! Opening up for Taylor Swift on her Stadium Tour?! A radio station made a big oops by putting out a tweet that said “win a trip to London to see Taylor and Camila in concert at Wembley Stadium June 22!” They even had a fancy graphic made and everything! While both Taylor and Camila aren't confirming anything just yet,I think it’s a smart move! In fact, Camila recently announced a tour for her solo album titled Camila—she has a stop June 21 in London. And when comparing those dates to Taylor's upcoming round of concerts, there aren't any overlaps. Combine that with the fact that both artists are dear friends and we've got ourselves a solid rumor. More info HERE

 

NBC IS PULLING A TRICK, TO GET YOU TO WATCH MORE

NBC Universal will cut the number of commercials in primetime by 20% on all their networks beginning this fall. They say this will reduce the overall ad time by about 10%. In addition to NBC, their stations include Telemundo, USA, MSNBC, E! and Bravo. Obviously, this is a direct reaction to streaming services like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu, which give people the option of watching without any commercials at all. NBC is trying out some new things to compensate for the loss . . . including introducing special 60-second ads that are specifically tailored for shows and audiences. Also, the change is only for first-run episodes. The ad-time for REPEATS will not change. More details HERE

A TV SHOW THAT HAS BEEN HEAVILY PROMOTED, IS NOW GETTING YANKED OFF THE SCHEDULE

The new "Heathers" TV show was supposed to premiere on March 7th, but the Paramount Network has decided to postpone it indefinitely. And it's because of the school massacre in Florida two weeks ago. They didn't give any specifics, but they said that the show addresses gun violence. And if you've seen the movie, then you know it's about high school kids killing each other. And rumor has it that the fifth episode is shot in its entirety from a first-person perspective, with a character "playing a first-person school shooting video game." Paramount says the show will debut sometime this year, but there's no date yet. More details HERE
