ABC’s reboot of “Battle of the Network Stars” premieres on June 29. The original show ran as a series of specials from 1976 to 1988 and featured teams made up of stars from each of the three networks competing against each other in a variety of athletic competitions. Here are five things to know about the show:1. Howard Cosell hosted or co-hosted all but one of the specials (he did not host the 1985 edition due to a falling-out with ABC, but he returned for the final edition in 1988). 2.
The nostalgia-TV channel MeTV (Optimum Ch. 33, FiOS Chs.3/503, Dish Ch.3) will pay tribute to the late Adam West with a marathon of his TV appearances from 10 a.m. Saturday to 2 a.m. Sunday. Of course, “Batman” is included in the mix — specifically the show’s first two episodes, “Hi Diddle Riddle” and “Smack in the Middle” (midnight and 12:30 a.m. Sunday).
Lindsay Lohan has a new TV gig — in the United Kingdom. Lohan, who has been living in London, has joined the cast of the Sky 1 comedy “Sick Note,” for its second season. The show concerns Daniel Glass (“Harry Potter” star Rupert Grint), a compulsive liar stuck in a lousy relationship and dead-end insurance job working for a rotten boss (“Miami Vice’s” Don Johnson). Lohan will play the daughter of Johnson’s character.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
