Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain will begin hosting a new show next year on – of all places – the news network CNN.
The weekend show on food and travel represents a departure for CNN in both content and procedure. CNN usually does its programming in-house, but in this case an outside production company tied to Bourdain will make the series.
It will air on Sunday nights in prime time and be repeated on Saturday nights.
The show will feature cultures around the world through the prism of dining traditions.
Country music star George Jones has been released from the hospital.
In a statement from Jones’ publicist on Saturday, Jones says he is improving, and “I look forward to seeing everyone soon.”
Jones was hospitalized for the second time this year on May 21 in Nashville, Tenn., with an upper respiratory infection. The 80-year-old spent a week in the hospital in March as well.
The “White Lightning” singer has canceled his live performances through the month of June and will reschedule shows where possible.
A judge on Friday granted Jeff Goldblum a temporary restraining order against a woman who has been repeatedly ordered to stay away from the actor in recent years.
Goldblum’s attorneys obtained the order against Linda Ransom, 49, after she repeatedly went to the actor’s home three times this month. A previous stay-away order against Ransom from 2007 has expired and police claim she has told them that she will not stop trying to meet Goldblum unless a restraining order is in place.
