As the old saying goes: Youâ€™re only allowed one massively popular Big Three Network sitcom in your lifetime. In a new interview with USA Today, Matt LeBlanc â€” you know, that guy from that Friends show â€” revealed he was being wooed by ABC many years back to play the role of Phil Dunphy on Modern Family, with the pilot script coming â€œacross his deskâ€? for the goofy patriarch. In fact, the network even offered him the leading role.
Because Tina Fey isnâ€™t going to hog all of the special guest star fun, Veepâ€™s Reid Scott will be joining the upcoming second season of NBCâ€™s Great News in a very Veepian way, minus the frequently-colorful expletives aimed at a man named Jonah. Heâ€™ll be portraying a dashing and â€œhighly intelligentÂ New York TimesÂ reporterâ€? named Jeremy who works with Katie (Briga Heelan) on a â€œdangerousâ€?
Back in 2004, Jay-Z and Linkin Park collaborated on the well-received EP Collision Course, which blended the respective artistâ€™s songs together in six unique tracks. (Example: â€œDirt off Your Shoulder/Lying from You.â€?) Now, a month after Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington died by suicide at the age of 41, Jay-Z honored his late collaborator and friend by performing the albumâ€™s most popular song, â€œNumb/Encore,â€? during his V Festival set this weekend.
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".
