Hulu original content

Network and cable TV has been the primary source for new sitcoms and shows, historically. Now, with the adaptation of the internet, that is slowly changing. What started as a mere hub used to catch up on television shows, Hulu is now expanding into producing original, first-run shows on its own.

For those that use Hulu, you may have already known that Hulu had original programing like Battleground, Up to Speed, and A Day in the Life. Hulu’s programing is now expanding to include new shows, titled We Got Next, The Awesomes, Don’t Quit Your Daydream, and Flow.

Paul McCartney Plays Tribute to John Lennon on SNL

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Performances, Videos, Rock,

Sir Paul McCartney helped to create one of SNL’s most memorable episodes over the weekend.

In-between appearing in skits, McCartney took to the stage no less than four times to perform several hits -- but the most poignant was definitely when he honored former bandmate and collaborator John Lennon. This year marks the 30th since the rocker’s death, and McCartney played tribute by playing “A Day in the Life” and Lennon’s own “Give Peace a Chance.”

Watch (and listen!) in the video above.

Mix Tape: NYC Says No to Jay-Z, Blige Says Yes to Nina Simone

Jay-Z-A surprise Jay-Z performance outside David Letterman’s studio will not happen on Monday. A permit was not granted for the concert by New York City officials.

-A future reunion for Jay-Z’s wife (Beyonce) and the other Destiny’s Child ladies will also not happen. Ex-manager Matthew Knowles squashed all rumors about a performance or an album.

-According to one person “A Day in the Life” was worth $1.2 million. That’s how much handwritten lyrics to the John Lennon-penned song were sold for this week.

-Please don’t let me be misunderstood. Mary J. Blige will be playing Nina Simone in a movie about the singer’s life. Shooting on Nina will start this fall.

-Sophie B. Hawkins (remember her?) is donating all proceeds from her song “The Land, the Sea and the Sky” to help clean-up efforts in the Gulf area. The song is available on iTunes.
