76ers' Jerry Colangelo worried about 'the people around' Lonzo Ball

  76ers' Jerry Colangelo worried about 'the people around' Lonzo Ball We have real evidence that there is at least some concern from a team near the top of the draft about Lonzo Ball’s entourage. Jerry Colangelo, Philadelphia 76ers special advisor and father of general manager Bryan Colangelo, voiced his concerns about “the people around” Ball — almost certainly a reference to the guard’s controversial father, LaVar.

Zero Hour, one of the many here-and-gone shows of the TV season . This show was ridiculous. We are currently witnessing endtimes for the ad-supported television networks. 7. Losers : The X Factor/American Idol.

Neither Winner Nor Loser (But It Would Be Strange to Leave It Out): CBS. But more broadly, in its seventh season , Big Bang finally got its due, gracing the cover of New York magazine's annual TV issue in May as one clear example of recognition.

The 2016-17 TV season ended last week, and it was not an especially pretty one.  As online streaming climbed, traditional TV ratings fell on much of broadcast and cable, even with delayed and on-demand viewing counted.

This is Us. The season's breakout drama averaged nearly 15 million viewers, and was by far the biggest new series among young adults. Its emotional, heavily serialized storylines, about three siblings who share a birthday and (in flashbacks), their 1980s-era parents, was unlike most network TV. Fans caught on, and caught up: Comcast, which owns NBC, says the series smashed video-on-demand records in homes it serves with 38 million views, eclipsing the 23 million that Fox's Empire had for its first season. (Us aired 18 episodes, however, to Empire's 12). Sterling K.

Why Trump is right about terrorists being 'losers'

  Why Trump is right about terrorists being 'losers' Literally and most plainly, it is simply someone who doesn't win some specific contest or challenge: the loser of a race, boxing match, business deal, etc. Economists routinely talk about how this or that policy-- on trade, taxes, whatever-- creates "winners and losers." A big part of Donald Trump's winning appealLoad Error

A lot of shows were canceled after this season , so why pick on Fox's The Following? Because two years ago in my first annual Winners and Losers of the TV Season post, I picked it as a winner : It was one of the biggest dramas of the 2012-13 season .

Bull. Despite competing against Us, CBS drama Bull, led by former NCIS star Michael Weatherly, narrowly eclipsed it as the season's most-watched newcomer with 15.5 million viewers, and the network's Kevin Can Wait was the top new comedy.

Stephen Colbert. Donald Trump (and a new producer) gave Late Show With Stephen Colbert a boost from those looking for laughs at the president's expense. In his second season, Colbert jumped 11%, adding about 300,000 viewers, and narrowly took the total-viewer crown from NBC's perennial leader, Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show, which lost about 600,000.  ABC's third-place Jimmy Kimmel Live also lost ground.

Timeless. NBC's freshman drama traveled through time and, helped by fan support (it was the top pick in USA TODAY's Save Our Shows poll) and a more financially attractive deal, led NBC to renew it for next year only days after canceling the series.

Trump files for extension on his 2016 taxes

  Trump files for extension on his 2016 taxes President Trump filed for an extension on his 2016 taxes, CBS News has confirmed . It's a rare piece of information about Mr. Trump's tax returns, which he and his administration have repeatedly declined to release to the public. In April, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said the president has "no intention" of releasing his returns, although Mnuchin later said he hadn't spoken with the president about the topic. Protesters led events across the country in April urging the president to release his returns, to the extent that Mr. Trump's motorcade took a different route in Florida to avoid them.

Maybe it’s the influence of the WB, but TV programming is starting to resemble high school in one important way: It takes only about a month to get branded as either a winner or a loser . That said, here’s EW Online’s take on the new shows that are emerging as cool kids (with full- season

Bright spots. Most shows shed viewers the longer they stay on the air. But a few scripted series actually won more: CBS stalwarts NCIS: Los Angeles (up 12% on a new night), Hawaii Five-0 (+9%) and Blue Bloods (+8%). Among young-adult viewers, ABC's The Bachelor managed to grow 3%.

Depleted survivors. Plenty of returning shows took ratings tumbles this season; many were canceled as a result. But some with troubling declines were spared the ax, anyway. Among them: NBC's Blindspot (down 35%), thanks to a pricetag cut; ABC's Quantico, which plunged 42% and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (-27%), both owned by the network; and Fox's no-longer-red-hot Empire, off a steep 36%. On cable, AMC's The Walking Dead lost 20% of its young-adult audience this spring but remains (by far) TV's top series among that crowd.

Football punts. The NFL's Sunday, Monday and Thursday games all declined, though alarming early-fall drops moderated later in the season. Networks blamed blowout games and weaker matchups, but perhaps there were just too many games fighting for attention. And yet NBC's Sunday Night Football remains prime time's top-rated program.

Tale of two CW shows. The smaller network, which gets a disproportionate share of its viewers online, had good news on TV anyway with Jane the Virgin, which got a 17% boost in young-adult viewers (and 6% overall) thanks to new Monday lead-in Supergirl. But its former companion, similarly praised Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, dropped 25% and  27%, respectively, after it was shunted to Fridays.

Unbeaten Warriors living up to NBA 'Superteam' label .
Two wins from completing the first unbeaten playoff championship run in NBA history, the Golden State Warriors are realizing the "Superteam" expectations they shouldered since signing Kevin Durant last July. The Warriors ripped defending champion Cleveland 132-113 Sunday to seize a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven NBA Finals, which now shift to Cleveland for games Wednesday and Friday.Golden State became the first club in NBA history to win 14 consecutive playoff games and the Warriors could be in the early years of a dynasty run to match legendary Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers teams.
