Exclusive: Lifetime Gives More Holiday Cheer to The Hoff's Christmas Consultant

David Hasselhoff

It had all the makings of a holiday camp classic. Lifetime's seasonal TV movie The Christmas Consultant stars David Hasselhoff as a green bow tie-wearing, bespectacled holiday hero who helps an overworked and overstressed family get through December.

But after bad reviews and a low-rated Nov. 10 premiere (just 1.5 million viewers), Lifetime quietly began scrubbing additional airings of the TV movie. Pre-emptions included a big Sunday primetime screening on Dec. 2. As a result, The Christmas Consultant wasn't set to air again until Dec. 25 at 6/5c — Christmas night, when presumably fewer viewers are watching TV or too juiced up on nog to appreciate it.

Then a funny thing happened: read more

Exclusive Promo: Barbara Walters Touts Jimmy Kimmel's Timeslot Change

Jimmy Kimmel

ABC has started promoting Jimmy Kimmel Live's big move to 11:35/10:35c, and tonight will lean on a network titan to help sell that message. Barbara Walters has taped a spot highlighting Kimmel's time slot promotion, which takes place next month.

Walters' promo will air during the 90-minute special Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2012, airing Tuesday night at 9:30/8:30c.

Man of the Year: Jimmy Kimmel on the Emmys, Oprah and Going Head-to-Head With Leno and Letterman

The Walters promo is also notable because her special is produced by ABC News. Kimmel's move back a half hour (starting January 8) is displacing ABC News' Nightline, which shifts to 12:35/11:35c. Perhaps a sign of no hard feelings?

Here's the short Walters promo — featuring a cameo by Jimmy Kimmel Live's Guillermo Rodriguez — that will air tonight... read more

Showrunner Matt Warburton tells us why we should book an appointment with The Mindy Project... read more
