Netflix has been signing deals with comedians, like Dave Chappelle and Amy Schumer, left and right, leaving no one behind, even Ellen DeGeneres.

\n

DeGeneres hasn't done a stand-up special since \"Here and Now\" for HBO in 2003, also the same year that she started doing her daily talk show.

But she has now agreed to appear in a new stand-up special for Netflix.

There is no word yet when the new special will air, and no financial terms have been released.

\"Twin Peaks\" returned to television Sunday night after a 26-year absence and broke Showtime subscription records.

\n

\"In the world that we live in now, offering original programming that attracts new subscribers is our primary business objective,\u201d Showtime Networks President and CEO David Nevins said. \u201cBy that standard, the 'Twin Peaks' premiere is the biggest single-night driver we\u2019ve ever had.\u201d

The network first released episodes 1 and 2 for everyone and later made the 3rd and 4th available to streaming subscribers only, which generated a lot of interest.

NEW YORK \u2014 Ryan Seacrest was named co-host of the morning chat show \"Live\" with Kelly Ripa on Monday, ending a yearlong search for a marquee name as Michael Strahan's successor.

\n

\"Nice to see you, partner,\" Seacrest said as he walked onto the New York set of the show made famous by Regis Philbin.

Seacrest, 42, is a busy show-biz presence, hosting ABC's New Year's Eve show, red carpet coverage on E! Entertainment and a daily Los Angeles-based radio show. He has his own production company. But the ending of \"American Idol\" gave that show's host less of a regular television presence.

He'll move to New York for the new job, although he will continue his radio show.

The announcement came a year after Strahan exited the show for \"Good Morning America.\" The way that departure was handled so annoyed Ripa that she skipped the show for two days in protest.

Since then, she's worked with a series of guest co-hosts like Jerry O'Connell, Fred Savage and Andy Cohen. The uncertainty stretched on for so long it led some to wonder whether Ripa really wanted to go it alone.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Bill O'Reilly has lost his job at Fox News Channel following reports that five women had been paid millions of dollars to keep quiet about harassment allegations.

21st Century Fox issued a statement Wednesday that \"after a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the company and Bill O'Reilly have agreed that Bill O'Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel.\"

He had been scheduled to return from a vacation next Monday. O'Reilly was photographed in Rome shaking Pope Francis' hand on Wednesday.

\n\n

It marks a stunning end to a near-perfect marriage between a pugnacious personality and network. For two decades, O'Reilly has ruled the \"no spin zone\" with cable news' most popular show, and his ratings had never been higher.

In a memo to Fox staff on Wednesday, the Murdochs said the decision followed an extensive review done in collaboration with an outside counsel.

Fox said that Tucker Carlson's show would move to 8 p.m. to replace O'Reilly and that the panel talk show \"The Five\" would take Carlson's time slot at 9 p.m.

The fast-moving story took shape with an April 2 report in The New York Times that five women had been paid a total of $13 million to keep quiet about unpleasant encounters with O'Reilly, who has denied any wrongdoing. Dozens of his show's advertisers fled, even though O'Reilly's viewership increased. O'Reilly has denied wrongdoing.

Even though at least one of the harassment cases against O'Reilly dated back more than a decade and was widely reported then, the accumulation of cases outlined in the Times damaged him much more extensively. It wasn't clear when those stories would end, with a group of women demonstrating in front of Fox's headquarters Tuesday and another woman, a former clerical worker at Fox, calling a harassment hotline and accusing the host of boorish behavior.

\"I'm not going away,\" said Lisa Bloom, attorney for the latest accuser and another woman who alleges her career stalled because she spurned O'Reilly's advances. \"My phone is ringing off the hook.\"

O'Reilly's attorney, Marc Kasowitz, charged that his client was being subjected to a \"brutal campaign of character assassination\" and that there is a smear campaign orchestrated by far-left organizations bent on destroying O'Reilly for political and financial reasons.

Conservative personality Glenn Beck \u2014 who once lost a job at Fox News Channel because a similar campaign choked his program of paying advertisers \u2014 came to O'Reilly's defense of Wednesday, but it was too late.

\"You need to write and call Fox News Channel today and tell them, you can lose your advertisers or you can lose your viewers,\" Beck said on his radio show. \"But you have to put some spine back into the Murdoch family and the Fox News Channel board because you are about to lose Bill O'Reilly.\"

O'Reilly's fans aren't likely to be happy about him losing his job, particularly on a controversy set in motion by the Times. His show's viewership increased the week after the story appeared \u2014 O'Reilly didn't address it on the air \u2014 and has sunk since he left for vacation. Potential successors like Dana Perino, Eric Bolling and Greg Gutfeld have substituted for O'Reilly since he left for vacation.

Vatican spokesman Greg Burke confirmed O'Reilly was in the VIP section for the pope's Wednesday appearance. Burke, a former Fox News correspondent in Rome, denied having facilitated the tickets. Such tickets can be obtained via special request to the papal household from embassies, high-ranking churchmen or Vatican officials.

Francis always swings by the VIP seats at the end of his audience for a quick round of handshakes. A photographer from the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano snapped a photo of Francis reaching out to shake his hand.

Did you miss the first-ever \"Saturday Night Live\" broadcast that was live in all time zones? Here's a recap.

\n

1) Host Jimmy Fallon and Alec Baldwin were both featured in the cold open. Appearing as Donald Trump, Baldwin reflected on his first 100 days in office only to learn that the presidency does not end after 100 days.

2) Jimmy Fallon killed it hosting. No surprise there. His monologue turned into an epic dance party as the host sang David Bowie's \"Let's Dance\" through the studio.

3) Funniest sketch of the night was \"Easter message from Sean Spicer,\" played by the hilarious Melissa McCarthy. Did we mention she was wearing a full bunny suit as she explained the story of Passover with puppets?

NEW YORK \u2014 Chuck Barris, whose game show empire included \"The Dating Game,\" ''The Newlywed Game\" and that infamous factory of cheese, \"The Gong Show,\" has died. He was 87.

Barris died of natural causes Tuesday afternoon at his home in Palisades, New York, according to publicist Paul Shefrin, who announced the death on behalf of Barris' family.

\n

Barris made game show history right off the bat, in 1966, with \"The Dating Game,\" hosted by Jim Lange. The gimmick: A young female questions three males, hidden from her view, to determine which would be the best date. Sometimes the process was switched, with a male questioning three females. But in all cases, the questions were designed by the show's writers to elicit sexy answers.

After the show became a hit on both daytime and nighttime TV, the Barris machine accelerated. New products included \"The Newlywed Game,\" ''The Parent Game,\" ''The Family Game\" and even \"The Game Game.\"

At one point Barris was supplying the television networks with 27 hours of entertainment a week, mostly in five-days-a-week daytime game shows.

The grinning, curly-haired Barris became a familiar face as creator and host of \"The Gong Show,\" which aired from 1976 to 1980.

Patterned after the Major Bowes Amateur Hour show that was a radio hit in the 1930s, the program featured performers who had peculiar talents and, often, no talent at all. When the latter appeared on the show, Barris would strike an oversize gong, the show's equivalent of vaudeville's hook. The victims would then be mercilessly berated by the manic Barris, with a hat often yanked down over his eyes and ears, and a crew of second-tier celebrities.

Occasionally, someone would actually launch a successful career through the show. One example was the late country musician BoxCar Willie, who was a 1977 \"Gong Show\" winner.

He called himself \"The King of Daytime Television,\" but to critics he was \"The King of Schlock\" or \"The Baron of Bad Taste.\"

As \"The Gong Show\" and Barris' other series were slipping, he sold his company for a reported $100 million in 1980 and decided to go into films.

He directed and starred in \"The Gong Show Movie,\" a thundering failure that stayed in theaters only a week.

Seeking escape from the Hollywood rat race, he moved to a villa in the south of France in the 1980s with his girlfriend and future second wife, Robin Altman, and made only infrequent returns to his old haunts over the next two decades.
