Can't make it outside to watch solar eclipse? Try TV

- For the first time in 99 years, a total eclipse of the sun will span the entire United States crossing from the West Coast to the East Coast on Monday. The event will be turning day into night for just a little more than two minutes. The phenomenon is basically the moon's orbit taking it in front of the sun to create the blackout

Apple is bringing a billion-dollar checkbook to Hollywood, and wants to buy 10 TV shows

- Apple is officially open for business in Hollywood. The company is telling content makers it wants to spend $1 billion on its own stuff over the next year. That's music to studios' ears, and a tune they have been expecting for some time — especially after Apple hired two top Sony TV executives in June. We still don't know what Apple wants to do with that content: The Wall Street Journal says Apple wants to make up to 10 "Game of Thrones" or "House of Cards"-scale shows, but that's not enough to launch a full-scale subscription service

On late-night TV, Trump's no laughing matter anymore

- Presidents are inevitably targets for late-night comedy; Donald Trump has become something more. He has inspired a new form of late-night performance: comedy-outrage. For six months, late-night hosts have pilloried the President for a long litany of incidents ripe for satire, from shoving a prime minister out of the way to attacking his own attorney general. The past weekend's events in Charlottesville sparked an unmistakable outpouring of comedic rage, because the President was so late and, to many observers (including most of the roster of late-night hosts) so wishy-washy in expressing his disapproval of groups promoting things as egregiously and indisputably wrong as racism, anti-Semitism, and neo-Nazism

Tribeca Film Festival to Start Standalone TV Gathering

Acquittal in ‘Top Chef’ trial may boost Walsh, analyst says

- The federal jury verdict that acquitted four Teamsters union members of attempting to extort the “Top Chef’’ television show also served as political relief for Mayor Martin J. Walsh – given City Hall’s connections to the case, according to legal and political analysts. The original September 2015 indictment of the Teamsters members — for crashing filming of the television show while demanding jobs — had become an early headache for Walsh, a longtime labor leader who was elected with heavy union support in 2013

Game of Thrones: What you don't know could get you killed

- WASHINGTON — Samwell Tarly knows more than the maesters of the Citadel. Littlefinger knows more than Arya. And Bran knows more than anyone in "Game of Thrones." The imbalance in knowledge is what economists call "asymmetric information" — when one party in a transaction knows more than the other and can exploit the advantage. It can be bad for economies. And it's certainly bad for the people of Westeros as the threat of Whitewalkers drew closer in the seventh season's fifth episode, Eastwatch

Netflix renews 'Ozark'

- Netflix has ordered a second season of "Ozark," the crime drama set at Lake of the Ozarks. St. Louisan Bill Dubuque created "Ozark," inspired in part by frequent family visits there. He worked at a resort at the lake as a teenager. The story, though, is as dark as Lake of the Ozarks is sunny. Jason Bateman stars as Marty Byrde, a Chicago wealth manager who runs afoul of a Mexican drug boss and moves his family (including wife Laura Linney) to Lake of the Ozarks in hopes of setting up a new money-laundering hub there

Better invent a time machine so you can get back into the magic 25-54 demographics coveted by advertisers. If you remember the days when the sport was such an integral of Seattle that kids would cut toy hydroplanes from plywood and drag them behind their bicycles, well … Argue all you want that you still buy brand-new cars, that you still shop for appliances, that you have more money in savings than some millennials
