Comedy Central Stands Behind Trevor Noah, New ‘Daily Show’ Host, Amid Scrutiny -

Within hours of the announcement that he had been named the new host of “The Daily Show,” the comedian Trevor Noah was subjected to the full scrutiny of the Internet. As potential audience members scoured his past work and social media presence for more clues to Mr. Noah, a South African comedian, they uncovered many posts on his Twitter account that they deemed offensive to women or Jews.

Comedy Central announced on Monday that Mr. Noah, 31, would succeed Jon Stewart as anchor of “The Daily Show,” its satirical late-night news program, when Mr. Stewart steps down this year. Though Mr. Noah has performed stand-up comedy around the world, he is not widely known in the United States, and he had appeared as an on-air contributor to “The Daily Show” only three times before being named as host.


Mom accused of killing toddler in NYC fast food bathroom

Thirty-five-year-old Latisha Fisher, mother to young Gavriel Ortiz-Fisher, took her son into the 5 Boro Burger bathroom at around 2:25 p.m. on Monday, according to police. After Fisher had been inside the bathroom for an "unusual amount of time," and as lines to the bathroom grew longer, an employee went in to check and was horrified by what they found.

Fisher was caught holding her hand over her son's mouth. Foam was coming out of the toddler's nose and mouth. Fisher said, "I put my hand over his mouth to put him to sleep." Fisher also spoke of "hearing the devil's voice."


Cable News Ratings: MSNBC Tumbles, While Fox, CNN and HLN All Rise

MSNBC took in on the chin during the first quarter of 2015, shedding big chunks of its audience while Fox News, CNN and Headline News all took advantage and gained ground.

Fox News remained the dominant news network, especially in primetime, while CNN solidified its standing as the No. 2 newsie and made some demo gains on a total-day basis.

According to Nielsen “most current” estimates for the Dec. 29, 2014-March 29, 2015 quarter, Fox News cruised to a primetime victory in the key news demo of adults 25-54. It averaged 328,000 viewers nightly (up 9% vs. a year ago) and was followed by CNN (192,000, up 11%), MSNBC (136,000, down 40%) and HLN (130,000, up 11%).

Watch Van Halen Rock 'Panama,' 'Runnin' With the Devil' With David Lee Roth - Yahoo News

Hollywood Boulevard was transformed into the 1980s Sunset Strip on Monday when Van Halen shut down the street in front of the El Capitan Theatre for a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

It marked their first television performance since frontman David Lee Roth rejoined the band in 2007.

They started out the three-song set with the classic track "Panama," from their 1984 album. Diamond Dave wore an open jean jacket with no shirt underneath, showing off a full chest tattoo. He also sported a bandage across the bridge of his nose — hopefully not a sign of backstage drama from the always-tumultuous band. (Actually, according to this YouTube video, Roth hurt his nose with a microphone, bandaged it up, and then started "Panama" from the top with his new look.)

Next up was "Runnin' With the Devil," from their 1978 self-titled debut album. Eddie Van Halen showed off his still-solid guitar skills throughout, trading licks with son Wolfgang Van Halen onstage.

They wrapped up the show with "Dance the Night Away" off 1979's Van Halen II. Roth was up to his old tricks after the song, declaring to a woman in the front row: "I got a hottie right here who's been dancing all night.... Get her up here!" After she was pulled up onstage, the show abruptly came to a close.


Megan Fox Addresses Critics Who Think That She's Not Very Smart, Narcissistic and Chasing Attention | E! Online

Megan Fox knows she's not America's Sweetheart—and she's OK with that.

Rather than feign ignorance, Fox says she's keenly aware of what critics have said. "I would say most people assume that I'm not very smart or educated or earnest, because I have this image that I'm sort of narcissistic, chasing attention, and wanting people to like me. It makes me laugh because I've done plenty of interviews and when you read the article from beginning to end you can see that I'm not your typical music video model," she tells Harper's Bazaar Arabia.

Study: Tougher rules could reduce Iowa teen driving deaths

Iowa could reduce by more than half its rate of motor vehicle accidents that kill teenagers if state lawmakers adopted a stronger graduated driver license law, according to a new national study.

However, two key lawmakers and the state's chief highway safety expert all said Monday it would be difficult to adopt tougher teen driver rules in a state where many young people in rural communities rely on cars and pickup trucks to drive to school, work and other activities.
