*There’s a new gospel sheriff in town!
Taraji P. Henson is taking over as host of BET’s “Celebration of Gospel.”
Steve Harvey‘s 13-year run as host has come to an end.
*The first trailer has surfaced for “Think Like A Man Too,” the sequel to the 2012 Screen Gems film based on Steve Harvey’s best-selling relationships book “Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man.”
Taraji P. Henson, Michael Ealy, Kevin Hart, Terrence Jenkins, Jerry Ferrara, Romany Malco, Gary Owen, Gabrielle Union, Meagan Good, Regina Hall, Jenifer Lewis, and Wendy Williams are all back in their original roles.
New cast members include Dennis Haysbert, Adam Brody, Wendi McLendon-Covey and David Walton.
*“Family Feud” has become a weapon of mass destruction in syndication.
Up a colossal 336 percent in total households since Steve Harvey took over as host in 2010, the game show is only outranked by “Judge Judy” among adults 25-54 for the last full week of January, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“Feud” scored a record 6.1 household rating for the week ending Jan. 26. That marks its best performance since the advent of Nielsen People Meter technology in 1988. In total viewers, “Feud” nabbed more than 9.2 million for the week, up 9% from the previous week and 18% from a year ago.

*Just like the headline says, this page/board is where you can discuss the stuff that we didn’t cover in today’s issue. (It’s sort of like feedback with a twist) Remember, NO name calling, racial taunting, graphic sex talk and vulgarity in general, PLEASE.
