Super Bowl 51 Is Being Turned Into a Movie

The last year in Tom Brady's life is being turned into a book AND a movie. 

Everything from his 'DeflateGate' suspension to racking up his fifth championship with a historic comeback in Super Bowl 51.

There aren't any other details yet, other than that it's being written by a guy named Paul Tamasy.  He’s the guy who wrote "Air Bud", the 1997 classic about a basketball-playing dog that's spawned no less than 10 SEQUELS.

 

Regis Says Kelly Hasn't Invited Him Back to "Live!" Since He Left 

REGIS PHILBIN hosted "Live!" for 28 years. 

For the last 10, he sat side-by-side with KELLY RIPA.  So how's their relationship now?  Try NONEXISTENT.  In an interview with LARRY KING, Regis said they don't keep in touch, and he hasn't been asked back since he left in 2011. 

Apparently, it's down to a misunderstanding.  Regis said, quote, "She got very offended when I left.  She thought I was leaving because of her.  I was leaving because I was getting older and it wasn't right for me anymore."

Stephen Colbert Is Now Beating Jimmy Fallon In The Late-Night TV Ratings Battle

The late-night TV ratings battle has always been brutal – remember Leno vs. Letterman?

Well, things aren’t any different today when it comes to Jimmy Fallon vs. Stephen Colbert --and their fight for ratings just heated up.

For the past 2 weeks, “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on CBS beat “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on NBC.

This is the first time that Stephen Colbert has beaten Fallon in the ratings since he took-over the “Late Show” in 2015 following David Letterman’s retirement.

Programming experts believe the shift in ratings may be because viewers actually prefer Colbert's politically-edged humor over Fallon's goofier and less political presentation.
