LOS ANGELES (AP) -- 

Norman Lloyd, whose role as kindly Dr. Daniel Auschlander on TV's "St. Elsewhere" was a single chapter in a distinguished stage and screen career that put him in the company of Orson Welles, Alfred Hitchcock, Charlie Chaplin and other greats, has died. He was 106.

Lloyd manager, Marion Rosenberg, said the actor died Tuesday at his home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.

His credits stretch from the earliest known U.S. TV drama, 1939's "On the Streets of New York" on the nascent NBC network, to 21st-century projects including "Modern Family" and "The Practice."

"If modern film history has a voice, it is Norman Lloyd's," reviewer Kenneth Turan wrote in the Los Angeles Times in 2012 after Lloyd regaled a Cannes Film Festival crowd with anecdotes about rarified friends and colleagues including Charlie Chaplin and Jean Renoir.

The wiry, 5-foot-5 Lloyd, whose energy was boundless off-screen as well, continued to play More

NEW YORK -- 

Searchlight Shorts has licensed the Park Pictures documentary short film The Heart Still Hums for its online platform. The short provides a raw and honest glimpse into the struggles of modern-day mothers in need and the charity organizations eager to help. Mothers and mother-figures of all stripes struggle through motherhood and its many hardships, but facing additional challenges like being unhoused, not having financial support or stability, and the real possibility of needing to seek adoptive services for your child is a heartbreaking reality many face today. The film highlights two organizations in particular, Black Mothers United/HerHealthFirst and Chickes in Crisis, Inc, and is sure to strike a chord with both mothers and children of mothers who have struggled with such trials as viewers approach Mother’s Day, May 9.

Co-directed by both Grammy-nominated director Savanah Leaf and Indie Spirit Award-nominated actor and filmmaker More

NEW YORK (AP) -- 

ViacomCBS's first-quarter net income beat expectations on strong streaming revenue during a quarter when the company aired the Super Bowl and introduced its rebranded streaming service.

ViacomCBS rebranded its streaming service formerly called CBS All Access to Paramount+ in March.

ViacomCBS added 6 million global streaming subscribers in the quarter, for a total of 36 million across all of its streaming services, Paramount+, Showtime and BET+. ViacomCBS has projected that those services will reach 65 million subscribers by 2024, with most of the growth coming from Paramount+.

Paramount+ costs $6 a month with ads and $10 a month without. It joins an increasingly crowded fray of services from Netflix, Hulu, Disney, AT&T and NBCUniversal, among others.

ViacomCBS said sign-ups for its streaming services were driven by live sports and specials, including the Super Bowl (which aired on CBS All Access before it was rebranded), More

NEW YORK (AP) -- 

Two sporting events last week — the Kentucky Derby and first round of the NFL draft — pulled in more television viewers than the Oscars, something inconceivable only a couple of years ago.

The Nielsen company said 14.5 million people watched Medina Spirit win the Derby on Saturday, and all the surrounding hoopla of the event, on NBC. The draft's opening, televised on ABC, ESPN and the NFL Network, reached 12.6 million people combined.

Less than two weeks earlier the Academy Awards, once one of the most-watched events of the year, barely topped 10 million viewers.

NBC Sports couldn't resist tweeting out over the weekend that the Derby was watched by more people than any entertainment awards show this cycle. The event also added to the legend of NBC statistics maven Steve Kornacki, the only one on the network to correctly predict the winner.

The Derby's audience beat last year's event, seen by only 9.4 million people because it More
