ITV(NEW YORK) -- While the final season of Downton Abbey won't premiere in the U.S. until January, there's a new promo online that will whet your appetite.
It was released over the weekend by British broadcaster ITV, which will debut the sixth and final season of the period drama in the U.K. on September 20.
In the one-minute clip, Robert Crawley, played by Hugh Bonneville, tells Jim Carter's Mr. Carson, “If I could stop history in its tracks, maybe I would. But I can’t, Carson, for neither you nor I can hold back time.”
The new season debuts in the U.S. on PBS on January 3, 2016.
Shelby County Sheriff's Office(MEMPHIS, Tenn.) -- Former TV judge Joe Brown turned himself in to authorities Thursday night and is serving a five-day stint for being found in contempt of court dating back to an incident from last year, Shelby County Sheriff's Office confirmed to ABC News.
Brown, 68, surrendered himself to Memphis police, then was transferred to Shelby Corrections, police add.
The contempt of court charge comes from a March 2014 incident after Brown attempted to help a woman in her child support case. He ignored the judge's warning to quiet down after getting loud with court employees, Shelby County Juvenile Court told ABC News at the time.
Last year, Brown himself spoke to ABC News about the arrest and the incident.
"When I insisted that the woman's charges be dismissed. He started talking about, I'm not an attorney so-and-so....I said, 'You know, it's wrong....You're better than this,'" Brown explained, adding he should only have been fined.
Dan Michael, chief magistrate of the Shelby County Juvenile Court that Brown interrupted, told ABC News, "This is not Hollywood. This is the real thing and as an officer of the court he should have known better."
Brown was in jail for a few hours right after the incident, then had a hearing a month later to set the five-day jail stint he is now serving.
Brown's lawyer did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment.
Brown's show, Judge Joe Brown, ran from 1998 to 2013.
Frank Ockenfels 3/AMC(NEW YORK) -- SPOILERS AHEAD:The second episode of Fear the Walking Dead shows the outbreak swiftly starting to spread, though it's the survivors -- not the walkers -- who kick-start the end of the world.
The episode kicks off with the high school's Principal Costa (Scott Lawrence) walking through his eerily empty school.
Meanwhile, after he didn't answer her texts towards the end of the pilot, Alicia walks over to her boyfriend Matt's house, to find the door open, place apparently ransacked. She comes upon something gasping and says, "Oh my God."
After Calvin was shot dead -- then rendered undead -- at the end of last week's episode, Madison, Nick, and Travis are panicked, driving through increasingly chaotic streets when they get a call from Alicia, who's hovering over a fever-wracked Matt.
They all meet at Matt's house and Travis discovers Matt's been bit.
While addict Nick raids the family medicine cabinets, Matt tells Alicia she has to leave him to be with her family. Hesitantly, she complies.
Back in the city, Travis' son Chris is on a bus, its windows on the world showing the unfolding emergency in the streets. The bus stops after word spreads that cops shot an unarmed man nearby. Chris and some of the other outraged riders pile out to join a growing protest.
Travis and the family return to their suburban home to find neighbors blissfully unaware; one family across the street is even readying a bouncy house for a birthday party that has a lot of cancellations, "from that bug that's going around."
As Nick starts going through withdrawal at home, things are worse in the city; cops are battling unfolding chaos.
Knowing what Nick is about to go through, Madison heads to her empty workplace to raid the school nurse's office for medicine, only to be discovered by Tobias, the troubled student she helped in the first episode. Appropriately, given the situation at hand, she gives him his confiscated knife back.
In the city, Travis sets off to find Chris, who is filming the growing protest of the cops' killing what we know was a walker.
At home, Alicia is supposed to babysit a withdrawing Nick, but stubbornly wants to visit Matt; a seizure from Nick turns her back.
Travis heads to the home of his ex, Liza, in an effort to find Chris, who they later discover in a phone call is part of the a growing apparent Walker Lives Matter demonstration in the city.
The couple puts aside their bickering and decide to meet their son there.
Back at the school, Maddie's student Tobias shows her the value of stocking up on food; together, the pair run through the halls and run into the principal, who's by now has been zombified. Maddie doesn't understand his condition at first and tries to tend to him, only to find out the hard way: he attacks her.
Tobias jumps into help, handy pen knife in hand, only to have the walker turn on him. They tussle and Maddie learns an apocalyptic survival tip; she brains the walker principal with a fire extinguisher.
Meanwhile, the Walker Lives Matter protest is, on cue, turning into a riot.
Looting and chaos lead Travis, Chris, and his mom Eliza into a barbershop owned by Daniel (Ruben Blades), who only takes them in because his wife (Patricia Reyes Spíndola) insists. They all set about trying to ride it out behind the store's shuttered gates.
Madison returns home to find Nick recovering and Alicia by his side. Madison gets a call from Travis, who fills her in on the riot and insists she takes the kids and go to the desert without him and his group.
By nightfall, however, hell reaches the burbs. The bouncy house is down across the street and Maddie blocks the door to prevent Alicia from helping as their neighbor is attacked; the episode ends with the pair reacting to the neighbor's screams.
Fear the Walking Dead returns next Sunday night, September 13, at 9 p.m. Eastern time on AMC.
ABC News(NEW YORK) -- With his signature leg drop, horseshoe moustache and undeniable strength, 12-time world wrestling champion Hulk Hogan single-handedly transformed wrestling into a global phenomenon, but he's now he’s fighting to maintain his legacy after fallout over his admitted use of the N-word.
In an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Amy Robach that aired Monday on Good Morning America, a contrite and emotional Hogan talked about the circumstances surrounding his use of the N-word. He steadfastly denied being a racist and begged his fans for forgiveness.
In addition to the scandal involving his use of the N-word in the past, the 62-year-old is embroiled in a legal battle with Gawker Media following the gossip website's publication of a tape showing Hogan having sex. The National Enquirer reported on the audio from a different part of that tape, in which Hogan can be heard using the racial slur, according to the Enquirer.
The tape is believed to have been recorded between 2006 and 2007.
Hogan is suing Gawker Media for $100 million. Heather Dietrick, Gawker's president and general counsel, has argued that publishing the tape was an issue of newsworthiness.
Born Terry Bollea, the man behind the once-indestructible “Hulkster” was wiped from the WWE's Hall of Fame last month after his use of the racial slur was revealed.
Hogan told Robach that he had been "upset over a situation that happened" between his daughter, Brooke Bollea, and her boyfriend. That's when he referred to his daughter's then-boyfriend using the N-word.
Hogan said he had "no idea" that he was being taped, explaining: "I was to the point where I wanted to kill myself, you know?"
He described how he sat in his bathroom by himself, his estranged wife and children gone.
"I was completely broken and destroyed and said, ‘What's the easiest way out of this?' I mean, I was lost," he said.
Asked whether he was suicidal, Hogan replied, "Yes, I was."
Then Robach asked: "Are you a racist?"
"I'm not a racist but I never should have said what I said. It was wrong. I'm embarrassed by it," he said, but added: "People need to realize that you inherit things from your environment. And where I grew up was south Tampa, Port Tampa, and it was a really rough neighborhood, very low income. And all my friends, we greeted each other saying that word."
He added that the word was "just thrown around like it was nothing."
Asked whether it was fair to say that he inherited a racial bias, Hogan agreed that he did.
"I would say that is very fair. The ... the environment I grew up in in south Tampa and all my white friends, all my black friends, to hear the word on a daily basis when they'd greet me in the morning, that's what they'd say to me, 'Good morning,' so-and-so," he said. "I think that was part of the culture and the environment I grew up in and I think that's fair to say."
As for his fans who may feel let down by his actions, Hogan asked for forgiveness.
“Oh, my gosh. Please forgive me. Please forgive me," he said. "I think if you look at the whole picture of who Hulk Hogan is, you can see over all the years that there's not a racist bone in my body."
He said he has forgiven himself, telling Robach that it wasn't hard for him to do because he's not a racist.
"I'm a nice guy. It's not, you know, not the Hulk Hogan that rips a shirt off and bang, bang, bang, slams giants, you know? I'm Terry Bollea," he said.
But WWE – formerly the WWF – took drastic action. It fired the wrestling legend and removed his image and name from its website's Hall of Fame.
Hogan was shocked.
"I've worked for the WWE for almost 30 years off and on ... and then all of a sudden, everything I've done my whole career and my whole life was like it never happened," he said.
He described the WWE's actions as "devastating."
"I mean, I love this business. I mean, it's been my life. I've given my life to this business," he said. "I've destroyed my body because I love doing this so much ... And I knew great things were still coming. And -- it just destroyed me."
Many high-profile figures are now coming to his defense, including Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, George Foreman and Dennis Rodman.
His daughter has also come to her father's defense, writing in a poem on Facebook: "Human isn't perfect and perfect is not he but I can tell you one thing, it's just not what it seems. Cause if you knew the dad I knew, you'd know he raised me well. He taught me folks are so much more than shades could ever tell."
Hogan said if anyone should have disowned him, it should have been his daughter.
"She knows me. She's seen me -- kids of every color, nationality... She's seen me interact with these kids through Make A Wish, through just all these different organizations," he said, getting emotional as he added: "For me to vent and be so angry at her, she should have been the one -- she should have been the one to throw me out like the trash. But instead, she showed me more love than anybody."
His daughter has never wavered, he said.
"She's been so supportive ... she instantly said 'I don't even need to forgive you 'cause I'm not mad at you. I love you. You're my dad,'" he said.
Hogan is trying to turn the experience into a positive.
"You know, just because a person makes a mistake, just don't throw them away. You don't throw good people away ... I refuse to believe that one thing that I did, which is not who I am, is the beginning of my demise," he said. "I think it's going to open up a lot of eyes and I'm accountable. I did it. I if I did something, I'll tell you, I did it."
Even on what he calls the "worst day of his life," Hogan said: "I thought, ‘You know what? This is going to be the greatest day of my life,' as crazy as that sounds."
"Why would it be the greatest day of your life?" Robach asked.
"So this can become the greatest day in my life if people understand there can't be double standards," he said. "And you just can't use the word. Let's take it out of the dictionary. Let's not use it in rap songs or movies. I mean, if it's unacceptable, it's unacceptable."
Hogan added: "If everybody at their lowest point was judged on one thing they said and let's just say in high school, you may have said one bad thing and all of a sudden, your whole career was wiped out today because of something you said 10 or 20 years ago, it'd be a sad world. People get better every day. People get better.”
ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) -- Joe Bailey's time in paradise came to a sudden end on Sunday night.
He was eliminated during the latest episode of Bachelor in Paradise -- all thanks to Samantha Steffen, the woman who motivated him to join the show in the first place.
In a dramatic rose ceremony, Samantha held the final rose and was forced to choose between Joe and Dan Cox. To the surprise of the other cast members, she picked Dan.
Afterward, Joe confronted Samantha, who complained about the drama that had surrounded their relationship. He responded by threatening to reveal text messages, allegedly from Samantha, that would prove that she'd schemed with him prior to the season. Allegedly, she'd urged him to do whatever it takes to get a rose so that he would be waiting for her when she arrived in Mexico.
Samantha's decision left a bitter taste in the mouths of her co-stars, who now view her as a villain who turned her back on Joe.
Earlier in the episode, it appeared as though Samantha had given Joe a second chance, after cancelling a date with Justin Reich. Before the rose ceremony, Dan tried to convince Samantha that Joe was no good for her. Apparently, the talk worked.
After Justin was cut loose by Samantha, he went with his backup plan: Amber James, who accepted his invitation for a date. They learned salsa dancing, but Amber was hung up on Dan. Unfortunately for her, he didn't feel a strong connection with her, and told her as much.
Recurring Bachelor franchise star Chris Bukowski arrived to paradise and was awarded a date card, though he initially seemed more preoccupied with the alcohol that was available. Eventually, he asked out Tenley Mohlzan, but she rejected him.
Seeing an opportunity, Joshua Albers asked Chris if he could have the date card. Chris agreed, and his ego took a blow when Joshua promptly used the card to woo Tenley. Joshua and Tenley traveled to Guadalajara, where they enjoyed dinner prepared by renowned chef Francisco Ruano.
In the lead-up to the rose ceremony, Ashley Iaconneti handed her crush, Jared Haibon, a lengthy letter detailing her feelings for him. On the rebound from Dan, Amber took an interest in Jared, too. Ashley presented Jared with a rose at the rose ceremony.
Toward the end of the episode, another Bachelor franchise alum joined the cast: Chelsie Webster fromJuan Pablo Galavis' season of The Bachelor.
Bachelor in Paradise continues Monday night at 8 p.m. Eastern time on ABC.
MTV(LOS ANGELES) -- Nicki Minaj kicked off the MTV VMAs by performing with Taylor Swift, apparently patching things up with the pop icon after the two had a beef earlier this year via Twitter over the award show's nominations list.
But after Minaj won a Moon Man for Best Hip-Hop Video, Minaj gave her speech then said, "Now back to the b---- who had a lot to say about me earlier in the week, Miley Cyrus what's good?"
Minaj pointed at Cyrus, apparently mad at what VMAs host said in a New York Timesinterview published Thursday.
When Cyrus was asked about what she thought about what Minaj said when she didn't get nominated for the big award of the night, saying skinny blonde girls got the nod instead, Cyrus said, "I don’t respect your statement because of the anger that came with it. And it's not anger like, 'Guys, I'm frustrated about some things that are a bigger issue.' You made it about you. Not to sound like a b-----, but that’s like, 'Eh, I didn’t get my V.M.A.'"
She continued, "If you want to make it about race, there's a way you could do that. But don't make it just about yourself."
When the camera flashed back to Cyrus on Sunday night during the show, Minaj was still pointing at Cyrus, calling her out for talking trash.
Minaj also tweeted after the incident with "Lmfaooooooooooooo."
Cyrus, however, just congratulated Minaj and then said across the room, "It's no big deal, it's just an award," referring to her original comments in the Times.
Warner Bros.(LOS ANGELES) -- Zac Efron could have used more support from his friends this weekend.
His new music drama We Are Your Friends, in which he plays an aspiring DJ, was a major flop over the weekend. It earned an estimated 1.8 million dollars on more than 23 hundred screens, ranking as one of the weakest debuts ever for a film with such a wide release.
The number-one movie, for the third weekend in a row, was the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, which raised 13.2 million dollars.
The religious drama War Room opened in second place, collecting 11 million dollars in 11-hundred-plus locations. In other words, it had a much better debut than We Are Your Friends.
The Owen Wilson thriller No Escape took fourth place, with 8.3 million. The film has made 10.3 million since it arrived in theaters last Wednesday.
Here are the top 10 movies from Friday through Sunday, with estimated ticket sales, according to Rentrak:
1. Straight Outta Compton, $13.2 million 2. War Room, $11 million 3. Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation, $8.3 million 4. No Escape, $8.3 million 5. Sinister 2, $4.7 million 6. The Man From U.N.C.L.E., $4.4 million 7. Hitman: Agent 47, $3.9 million 8. The Gift, $3.1 million 9. Jurassic World, $3.1 million 10. Ant-Man, $3.1 million
MTV(LOS ANGELES) -- Last night's MTV Video Music Awards were unforgettable -- and not just because of host Miley Cyrus’ crazy antics and Kanye West’s bizarre presidential announcement. The evening packed some major musical performances, too.
Here's who sang what:
Nicki Minaj opened the show and was joined by a surprise appearance by her former Twitter sparring partner Taylor Swift. The two sang a bit of Nicki’s “The Night Is Still Young” together before launching into Taylor’s “Bad Blood” and ending the performance with a hug.
Right after Nicki and Taylor’s lovefest, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis took it to the streets of downtown Los Angeles for their debut live performance of their new single, “Downtown.”
The Weeknd appeared on a red-lit stage to sing his current hit “Can’t Feel My Face,” and ended the performance by dancing amidst some dangerous-looking pyrotechnics. Even Kanye was on his feet for this one.
In her first ever VMA performance, Demi Lovato sang “Cool for the Summer” on an outdoor stage and was joined by her pal Iggy Azalea. She ended the performance by crowd-surfing on a giant inflatable pool.
Justin Bieber made an emotional VMA comeback. He busted out some killer dance moves for hisSkrillex/Diplo hit “Where Are U Now,” and flew in the air for his new single “What Do You Mean?” When his performance was over, the Biebs broke down in tears.
With guitar in hand, Tori Kelly took the stage to sing “Should’ve Been Us,” and hit every note.
Pharrell Williams hit the outdoor stage to sing “Freedom,” in a show seemingly inspired by Elvis Presley’s performance of “Jailhouse Rock” in the 1957 movie of the same name.
In perhaps the most unexpected pairing of the night, A$AP Rocky was joined on stage by Twenty One Pilots. They did a medley of Twenty One Pilots’ “HeavyDirtySoul” and “Lane Boy,” and A$AP’s “M" and “L$D.”
And to cap off the night, Miley sang a brand new song called “Dooo It!” backed by drag queens and The Flaming Lips. Right after the performance, she announced that her new album, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, is now available online for free.
The horror legend had been battling brain cancer, according to a statement from his family. He was 76.
"It is with deep sadness we inform you that Wes Craven passed away at 1 p.m. on Sunday, August 30th," the statement began. "Craven was surrounded by love, in the presence of his family at his Los Angeles home."
Born in Cleveland, Craven directed his first feature film, The Last House on the Left, which he also wrote and edited, in 1972. In the years that followed, he is credited for revamping the horror genre, writing and directing such films as A Nightmare on Elm Street, which ultimately spawned a franchise, The Hills Have Eyes and its sequels, and Scream.
Still, the director also worked on non-horror films, including Paris Je T'Aime and Music of the Heart. Being a horror-only director, he said, was never his intention.
"Once you get a name for doing something really scary, people assume that you’re crazy and live in a cave and all those things. Somebody asked me this morning, ‘What did your friends think when you made a romantic comedy?' I said, 'My friends all know who I really am. I'm not somebody scary in real life,'" he told Collider in 2007. "It's just one of those things that you have to get into this very special environment."
Off set, Craven was a passionate bird conservationist and served as a longtime member of the Audubon California Board of Directors.
He is survived by his wife, producer and former Disney Studios vice president Iya Labunka, his two children from a previous marriage, Jonathan and Jessica, a stepdaughter, Nina Tarnawsky, and three grandchildren.
"Our hearts," they said in their statement, "are broken."
ABC/Mitchell Haaseth(LOS ANGELES) -- Grey's Anatomy is moving on after killing off Patrick Dempsey's character Dr. Derek Shepherd, better known as "McDreamy," last season. Jason George, who plays Dr. Ben Warren on the long-running ABC series, said fans are in for a treat next season.
"The writers have made this extra effort to breathe new air and refresh everything," he told Peoplemagazine. "They've hit reboot almost. There's a lot of things that make it feel brand-new, but it has that lightness and sense of humor that people fell in love with in the first place."
"And the sexy sexy is back on," George noted. "There are a lot of people who are not in couples now and are falling into bed. Everyone's getting a little bit of loving."
George admitted, however, that the set has changed since Dempsey left. "It's different. Every time someone leaves a show, it changes," George explained. "The show has been on 12 years, but it has to change. People think they want everything to stay the same and everyone to be happy, but happy people make for boring television, ultimately."
Grey's Anatomy returns on ABC September 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
ABC(LOS ANGELES) -- Rob Kardashian hasn't been in the public eye for quite some time. On Keeping Up with the Kardashians, cameras documented how the reality star struggled with depression and later weight gain, reportedly packing on over 100 pounds.
But now Kardashian's back in the gym, and recently joked about his reported ongoing efforts to shed a few extra pounds. "Started right here with these milkshakes hahaha," he wrote on Instagram, next to a throwback Thursday photo of him enjoying desert.
Rob's sister, Kim, also bragged about his workout efforts. Earlier this week, she tweeted, "Rise & Grind! Workout time!!!!! With @robkardashian." Earlier in the month, the siblings went on what Kim called "the hardest hike ever" together.
Kardashian's trainer, Gunnar Peterson, told People magazine earlier in the week that Rob's been hitting the gym hard. "Rob is always in! He's slammed schedule-wise and still makes this work," Gunnar said. "Never worry about Rob."
ABC(NEW YORK) -- Attention is turning to Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, after her husband was accused of possibly having an Ashley Madison account. Observers have noticed that she hasn't been wearing her wedding rings. But the outspoken reality star made sure to clear things up right away.
"FYI I don't wear my wedding rings because they're too big and I need to resize them so I won't lose them," she tweeted. "I'm still happily married."
Us Weeklyreported earlier this week that Snooki's husband, Jionni LaValle may have had an account on the website that helps people cheat on their spouses. An email address for LaValle reportedly matches one that belonged to a member.
Of that report, Snooki tweeted, "There's no proof because it's false. The other couple on the other hand..."
Who knows if Snooki was referring to Josh Taekman, the husband of Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman, who admitted to using the site or Josh Duggar, who revealed he had an addiction to porn and entered a treatment facility after his name was linked to the site.
While she was at it, Snooki also cleared up an In Touch Weekly report that claimed the reason why the reality star would never leave her husband is because "they never signed a pre-nup."
"But we have a pre nup. Can we try to at least print one factual article about my husband and I? Where do u get ur info," she wrote.
Snooki and LaValle were married last year and have two young children, Lorenzo and Giovanna.
Ray Mickshaw/FOX(LOS ANGELES) -- It's been four months since Jessica Biel gave birth to Silas, her son with husband, Justin Timberlake. So what's her favorite part about caring for her newborn?
"Probably the moment he wakes up from a nap," Biel tells E! News. "He's sort of looking around and you sort of creep up and look over the crib and he looks up and he goes [sigh]. Just a gummy mouth, no teeth, just a big smile, happy that you're alive and you're just looking at him. That's probably the most magical."
"But you quickly move on from it because there is a dirty diaper in your palm," she adds.
Biel and Timberlake were married in 2012 and welcomed Silas last April.
ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) -- Ed Sheeran is the one who introduced actress Courteney Cox to her fiance, Johnny McDaid of the band Snow Patrol. So it's no wonder that the Friends star fully expects Ed to entertain guests at their upcoming wedding.
Speaking to the British tabloid The Sun, Courtney says, "We are certainly grateful to Ed for introducing us. I can’t imagine him not playing something at the wedding. It’ll be a musical night.”
So how did Ed hook Courtney up with Johnny? Well, he lived in Courteney's pool house while he was making his album, X, and Johnny was one of his collaborators on the project, co-writing several tracks, including the hit "Photograph."
Johnny's band Snow Patrol is best known for their 2006 hit "Chasing Cars," which blew up after it was featured on Grey's Anatomy.
