What was "The Big Bang Theory's" Sheldon Cooper like as a child? The prequel series "Young Sheldon" sets out to answer that question. Debuting Monday, Sept. 25 -- right after the 11th-season premiere of the parent show, and before it starts its regular Thursday run in November -- the CBS comedy introduces Iain Armitage as the younger incarnation of the brainy, fussy Sheldon, who's way wiser than his years.
Q: Do you know if “Major Crimes” was canceled? — Leslie D’Alessandro, Boynton Beach, Fla. A: It wasn’t, and the sixth season of the Mary McDonnell-starring “Closer” spinoff begins Oct. 31 on TNT. Speaking of “The Closer,” if you’re waiting for Kyra Sedgwick to turn up on “Major Crimes” at some point, don’t. She recently told us that is very unlikely, especially now that she’s back in the series-starring game with “Ten Days in the Valley,” which premieres Oct. 1 on ABC.
It’s been more than a decade since the last “Star Trek” television series, so fans of the franchise likely are ready to make a new discovery. CBS recognizes that; a major reason its subscription-based All Access streaming service will be the regular home of the new “Star Trek: Discovery” once the sci-fi show premieres tonight at 8:30, on both CBS All Access and the CBS broadcast network.
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".
