The era of the Saturday morning cartoon is officially over. This morning, The CW’s Vortexx programming block is airing episodes of Cubix, Sonic X, Dragon Ball Z and Kai, Digimon Fusion, Yu-Gi-Oh! and more for the very last time. Next week, The CW is parting with its animated block, signing on for One Magnificent Morning, a live-action block filled with educational shows for kids. This made today the last day to catch cartoons on a network station with your kids.
Over the years, The CW has changed up its Saturday morning programming block more than once. Two years ago, Toonzai became Vortexx. On October 4, Vortexx will become One Magnificent Morning. A changing of the guard signifies different programming, but this time around, there will be no cartoons. One Magnificent Morning and Vortexx are, in fact, quite dissimilar. While Vortexx was mainly for kids, One Magnificent Morning is being billed as family-friendly programming. The new block will feature five hours of live action, educational programming like Dr. Pol, a new show that will follow a farm veterinarian taking care of animals, and The Brady Barr Show, which will follow Barr as he gets up close to wild and dangerous creatures. The move toward educational (and assumedly cheaper) programming has been coming for a long time. The programming is put together by Litton, an entertainment group that also runs Saturday mornings on several of the other big networks.
In 2008, Fox cut cartoons from Saturday mornings. In 2011, ABC signed over its former “One Saturday Morning” block to Litton. Then in 2013, Vortexx became the only non-educational, non-live action programming block geared towards kids on Saturday mornings after This TV shut down its early morning cartoons. Now, Vortexx is gone, too.
For years, from the 1960s into the 90s, Saturday mornings were made for cartoons. Several generations of kids wearing footie pajamas and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle print pjs would clamor in front of the television on early Saturday mornings, savoring hours of programming geared just toward them. Unfortunately, like the prize at the bottom of the cereal box, network cartoon blocks have disappeared.

ONTD, what were your favorite Saturday morning cartoons?
Comedians Key and Peele are negotiating to make a full-length movie based on their Substitute Teacher skit.
Key and Peele are also working on the upcoming Police Academy reboot with Paramount.
Peele also wants to make a horror movie debut. "I want to be, essentially, a thriller director," he said. "I’m a big fan of horror movies. Rosemary’s Baby, Stepford Wives—I’m sort of taking a lead from that genre of film. It’ll be, just, very cool."

Speaking to a reporter after a recent performance in Berlin, she said: "Funnily, enough I don't actually drink milkshakes."
Now, if you're anything like us, this earth-shattering news puts into doubt everything you previously took as a certainty.
In a topsy-turvy world, the one thing we thought we could be 100% sure on was that Kelis liked a good 'shake.
This staggering news has pretty much shattered our very concept of reality, and we're a little bit scared.
The last time I saw Iwan Rheon, he was flaying a whimpering Alfie Allen in a particularly sadistic manner, his azure eyes flashing menacingly under a thick helmet of ebony hair.
The 29-year-old Welsh actor seems to have a particular talent for on-screen violence, making Ramsay Snow one of the most scary characters in Game of Thrones - HBO’s hit TV series.
The pork sausage scene was particularly disturbing - but we won’t go into that in a family newspaper.
Iwan, originally from Carmarthen, has come a long way since appearing in the popular S4C soap Pobl-Y-Cwm. Now hailed one of the country’s most glittering young stars, the Olivier winning performer is back on the small screen playing a British soldier in the BBC drama Our Girl.
The success of last year’s one off production about an ambitious medic trying to prove herself in the male dominated British Army has now been expanded to a five part series, in which Iwan has a leading role.
“Smurf is from Wales and he’s the golden boy of the section but he’s very conflicted as he joined because of his twin brother’s death in Afghanistan,” explains Iwan, a Welsh speaker. “The Captain of the platoon had dragged his body away so that the Taliban couldn’t keep it as a trophy. It’s a massive thing for him already that he’s trying to live in his footsteps.”
The actor seems excited about his latest part, even going so far as to be trained in some disciplines of war before filming the series.
“We did two weeks – one week in the UK and one week in South Africa,” he says. “It was more to get our heads around being soldiers and not civilians anymore. It’s a completely different way of thinking and it was a great thing to do as it put us all on the same level. Everyone chipped in and got involved. We did a lot of drills at first like we were new recruits and learnt about Afghanistan, such as what’s required of a solider out there and how difficult it is.”
It made him look at the role of real soldiers in a completely new light.

Michelle Phan, YouTube beauty maven and entrepreneur, now wants to get her manicured hands into the music biz as well.
Phan, whose beauty and makeup tips channel on YouTube has 7 million followers, is forming music label Shift Music Group in partnership with Cutting Edge Group (CEG), a music financing and services provider that specializes in music for films, TV shows and advertising.
Shift Music, according to Phan and CEG, will be geared toward using the power of social media to spread awareness for new and existing artists.
“I am passionate about finding undiscovered and talented artists,” Phan, 27, said in announcing the pact. “I want to help those artists get to the next level, and provide existing artists with a new way to reach fans. I wanted to partner with the Cutting Edge Group because they share my vision, and have a proven track record in innovation in the music business.”

For those of you who don’t remember, DashCon will likely go down as the worst managed convention of 2014. Even with all of its issues though, DashCon 2015 was almost immediately announced for June of 2015, set to be held in Indianapolis instead of the Chicago suburbs.
And yes, I was kind of surprised by this.
What I’m not surprised by though is DashCon’s attempt to rebrand itself. You see, the organizers have smartly decided to disregard the DashCon name… and have rechristened the convention “EmotiCon.”
That’s going to be really difficult to find in Google.
The DashCon website is gone, but the EmotiCon/Emoti-Con site (the URL makes it hard to figure out which spelling is supposed to be official) sits proudly on the internet, ready to take your money. The casual observer might not even realize DashCon II and EmotiCon are the same event, as the EmotiCon site goes out of its way to avoid mentioning the former (although much of the text remains unchanged from the DashCon site and there is a self referential bit about the Ball Pit). But if a person pulls up the Indianapolis Convention Center website, you find the following:
I mean, the fact that the location and dates matched the previously announced information for DashCon 2015 were probably a tip off too, but it’s always nice to have a little bit of confirmation. Of course, if you were to ask EmotiCon’s organizers if it’s a rebranded DashCon, you’ll get a very different story:
I know they want to pretend it’s a different con, but it isn’t. It just really, really isn’t.
And that’s actually okay. I totally get wanting to distance themselves from a disastrous first outing – but something else has been bothering me. You see, there has already been an event called “Emoti-Con” for quite some time in New York. It’s not a fandom convention, but it is an actual thing. The golden rule of convention naming is that you never take someone else’s name, period. Sure, it used to happen back in the day before we all used the internet (hence the two unaffiliated cons named “MarsCon”), but in these days? It’s just… not done. And the EmotiCon staff know about Emoti-Con, as they’ve added a disclaimer to their website about it already. Of course, that’s because someone told the other Emoti-Con about it.
It’s enough to make your ears start bleeding.
So if you thought that DashCon’s staff had learned their lessons from their “TumblCon USA” name fiasco when renaming to EmotiCon, you would be… really, really wrong.
But hey, it’s going to be held less than an hour from where I live.
So I’ll probably be there.
The daughter of the BTK serial killer has criticized Stephen King for writing a screenplay partly inspired by the Wichita case in the first public comments from a member of Dennis Rader’s family since his 2005 conviction.
“He’s exploiting my father’s 10 victims and their families,” Kerri Rawson told the Wichita Eagle for a story published Friday.
Rawson said that King’s upcoming movie, “A Good Marriage,” prompted her to break a self-imposed nine-year silence. She sent letters to King and local media outlets, saying that her family also feels exploited and that King should not profit from the grief her father caused.
King has said in media interviews that the movie – adapted from one of his short stories about a wife who suddenly discovers her husband is a serial killer – was inspired by Rader and his family. “A Good Marriage” is a story in the collection “Full Dark, No Stars,” which was published in 2010.
King said Friday in an emailed statement to The Associated Press that he doesn’t think Rader’s daughter has to worry about her father being flattered by his portrayal in the film as a “banal little man.” He said that none of the murders are shown and that the independently financed film is not expected to bring huge returns.
The story isn’t really about the killer husband, he added, but about the man’s brave and determined wife.
“I maintain that the theme of both the novella and the movie – how some men are able to keep secrets from even their closest loved ones – is valid and deserves exploration,” he said.

While I can't pretend to know what she's going through, I see no reason why King can't do a story that is loosely inspired by a real-life serial killer when you consider how many others have made films that are actually about the killers in question.
Tom Daley officially put your very best date night to shame yesterday by surprising his boyfriend, Dustin Lance Black, with a romantic sunset dinner on the top of a mountain.
The 20-year-old Olympic babe apparently organized the date himself and managed to keep it a secret until the two boarded their ride — a helicopter — yesterday afternoon.
Both posted photos of their #MountainTopPicnic on social media yesterday, leaving out all the cutesy make out selfies they probably also took. Ugh!
“Thank you @tomdaley1994 for the most magical date night ever.” DLB said on Facebook.
And thank you, boys, for officially being the cutest gay couple ever.
Relationship goals tbh
Benedict Cumberbatch insists it's too early to speculate whether or not he will take home an Oscar for his role in The Imitation Game.
The 38-year-old actor, who plays mathematician Alan Turing in the British-American historical thriller movie, claims it's far too early to be talking about the Academy Awards.
Speaking to HELLO! magazine, the Sherlock star, said: ''It would be amazing, but to be honest it's so premature that it would almost be futile to talk about it.
''I understand why it always happens at festivals, but I just got my suit back from the dry cleaners from this year's Oscars... There's lots of films to see before we start going, 'Oooh, blah, blah.''
Cumberbatch continued to say that he's not really that bothered about winning an award, adding: ''The most important thing is that any kind of buzz creates an interest in the film, which means people will see it hopefully and that means the Alan Turning story will get to a broader audience.
''And that, as a storyteller, is all I am concerned about. And if I have done a good job as him as well, that's great.''
Earlier that same day, the girls — Dinah Hansen, Normani Kordei, Ally Brooke, Lauren Jauregui, and Camila Cabello — revealed that they were giving away an outfit from all five of their collections.

“YOU HARMONIZERS = THE BEST. Thanks for sharing your style with us! Congrats @KristiOrdiales for winning our @Wetseal collections! xoxo,” Fifth Harmony tweeted from their group Twitter.
Amy's Baking Company founder Samy Bouzaglo -- who appeared on "Kitchen Nightmares" -- attacked someone with a knife outside his restaurant Saturday ... and the footage is CRAZY!
The person who shot the video says a drunk guy was eating at the Scottsdale restaurant when Samy's wife Amy Bouzaglo became enraged and ordered him to leave -- and he did.
But Samy wasn't done with him. The video shows him outside -- waving a knife -- going after the guy. You hear him scream to his wife, "Let me!"
Samy eventually backed off, the guy left.
We called the Bouzaglo's ... so far, no word back.
And you thought Gordon Ramsay was intense.

Booty" by Jennifer Lopez featuring Iggy Azalea or Pitbull is the top new entry on the Billboard Hot 100 at #18. The song is from Lopez’s album, A.K.A., which was widely seen as a flop when it came out in June. (For good reason: It sold just 56K copies in its first six weeks.)
"Booty" has several things going for it.
1. The steamy video has become a viral smash. Billboard reports that 92% of the song’s Hot 100 points came from streaming (and that 96% of its streaming points are from Vevo on YouTube clicks.) (The Hot 100 combines sales, airplay and streaming data.)
2. Female singers are red-hot right now. (yaas) Females have a lock on the top five for the third consecutive week. That’s the longest period in which men have been completely shut out from the top five since women held down the top five spots for four straight weeks in February/March 1999.
3. Azalea is especially hot. She has had three top five hits so far this year, two of them as a lead artist. One of those, “Black Widow” (featuring Rita Ora), dips from #4 to #5 in its 12th week.
4. Songs about posteriors are having their pop moment. Meghan Trainor's “All About That Bass” holds at #1 for the third week. (It also tops the 2 million mark in digital sales.) Nicki Minaj's “Anaconda,” which borrows heavily from Sir-Mix-A-Lot's 1992 classic “Baby Got Back,” dips from #3 to #4, after peaking at #2.
This Boriqua Queen worked her booty off so GET IT!

According to The Wrap, funny man Jim Carrey is coming back to host “SNL” for the third time.
The former “In Living Color” star will hit the Studio 8H stage with the rest of the cast early this season to promote his upcoming movie, “Dumb and Dumber To,” , the sequel to 1994’s cult classic “Dumb and Dumber” will hit theaters on November 14.
Carrey, who starred in “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” and “Kick-Ass 2,” hosted the late-night sketch comedy show back in 1996 and most recently in 2011.
