Prep-Entertainment-Report for Wednesday, Oct. 24 —DIERKS BENTLEY WILL PRODUCE COMEDY ABOUT NASHVILLELOS ANGELES (AP) — Dierks (DURKS) Bentley will be the executive producer of a comedy for Fox. Variety reports Bentley’s series will be set in a bar in Nashville where singers and songwriters hang out. The series does not yet have a title or air date. Bentley just happens to own a bar in Nashville called Whiskey Row.—MARIAH CAREY WILL BE GUEST MENTOR ON “THE VOICE”LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mariah Carey has a new title: “Knockout Adviser.” That’s what she’ll be for the top 32 contestants on “The Voice” next Monday. She’ll mentor them as they go into the Knockout rounds. The contestants who make it will be part of the live performance shows. Carey previously was an “American Idol” judge in the 2013 season.—MEGAN MARKLE – FIJISUVA, Fiji (AP) — It’s unclear why it happened. But Meghan Markle ended up cutting short a visit to an indoor market in the capital of Fuji today. The Duchess of Sussex is in Fiji as part of a tour of the South Pacific with her husband, Prince Harry. She was to spend about 15 minutes visiting with female vendors — when she was whisked out about halfway through the planned stop. It appeared there was a possible security concern. But there was no official explanation. Markle is four months pregnant.—TV RATINGSNEW YORK (AP) — When it comes to the latest TV ratings, the “eye” has it. Nielsen reports CBS was the most popular network last week. But the network’s continued dominance shows signs of fading. So far this TV season, CBS has scored two weekly victories. But rival NBC also has two — and NBC holds bragging rights because it has more viewers among the coveted 18-to-49 audience — where most network TV ad dollars are targeted. Usually, NBC makes hay in the fall because it airs Sunday night football. But successful scripted shows, like “This Is Us” and “Manifest,” have helped NBC be more competitive in the midweek ratings, too.—?u??? by The Associated Press Posted Oct 24, 2018 2:57 am PDT Last Updated Oct 24, 2018 at 4:00 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email

Swift’s gay pride anthem “You Need to Calm Down” and Grande’s breezy hit about her breakups “thank u, next” are nominated for the top prize alongside Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy,” Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Old Town Road,” 21 Savage and J. Cole’s “A Lot,” and Jonas Brothers’ “Sucker.”Eilish, 17, came in second with nine nominations, including artist of the year. Other nominees are Grande, Cardi B, Shawn Mendes, Halsey and Jonas Brothers.Lil Nas X, whose “Old Town Road” tied the record for most weeks at No. 1 with 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week, earned eight nominations.The 2019 VMAs will take place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on Aug. 26. Post Malone and Khalid were surprisingly snubbed: They both received zero nominations despite dominating on streaming services, radio and the Billboard charts with multiple hit songs in the last year.Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s Oscar- and Grammy-winning hit “Shallow” picked up two nominations: song of the year and best collaboration. Boy band BTS earned four nominations, including a bid in the new best K-pop category.And late rapper Nipsey Hussle, who posthumously won best male hip-hop artist and the Humanitarian Award at last month’s BET Awards, picked up a nomination for best hip hop for “Higher,” his song and video with DJ Khaled and John Legend.Swift will drop her album, “Lover,” three days before the VMAs on Aug. 23, making it likely that she will attend and possibly perform at the show. Scooter Braun, who now owns Swift’s music catalogue, will likely be in attendance, too: He manages top nominee Grande as well as Justin Bieber, who earned a nomination for best collaboration with Ed Sheeran for “I Don’t Care.”Comedian and actor Sebastian Maniscalco will host the 2019 VMAs.
