    U.S.-led coalition jets strike Kobani, Islamic State shells hit Turkey

    By Humeyra Pamuk and Oliver Holmes MURSITPINAR Turkey/BEIRUT (Reuters) - U.S.-led coalition jets pounded suspected Islamic State targets at least six times in the besieged Syrian town of Kobani on Saturday after the fiercest shelling in days by the insurgents shook the town's center and hit border areas within Turkey. Shelling continued after the strikes hit the center of Kobani. Several mortars fell inside Turkey near the border gate, called Mursitpinar, according to witnesses. ...

  • Fox Says "Please, No More Mulaney"
    Fox Says "Please, No More Mulaney"

    Look, no one's saying "canceled." Buuuuuuuuut everyone's thinking it. Fox has decided it doesn't need any more of Mulaney, and I certainly won't argue with it. The network has halted production of the multi-camera sitcom following the completion of its thirteenth episode, says Deadline. Mulaney initially received a six-episode, straight-to-series order last fall; in May, Fox added another 10 episodes, raising the show's Season 1 tally to 16 (which is a totally weird number). So far, only two of those episodes have aired, but in the wake of negative reviews and low ratings—the series premiere notched a 1.0 rating with the 18-to-49 crowd; Episode 2 actually bested it with a 1.1—the network has trimmed Mulaney's episode order from 16 episode to 13. Although it must be noted that Fox didn't necessarily "trim" so much as it said, "Let's just stop it right there," as Mulaney just finished filming Episode 13. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will continue to air in its current Sunday-night timeslot in an attempt to grow its audience. I'd guess that there's a good chance that all 13 of the series' completed episodes will air, but zero chance that it'll return for a second season. So what's the deal? Was Mulaney hampered by too-good talent being stuck in a weird environment? Was it doomed by studio notes? Was it weighed down by terrible scheduling on a night full of cartoons? Or was it just a lame show? TELL ME!

  • Sweden says credible reports of foreign submarine in its waters

    By Niklas Pollard and Alistair Scrutton STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden released on Sunday a grainy photo of a mysterious vessel in Stockholm's archipelago, as the military hunted for a foreign submarine or divers in the country's biggest such mobilization since the Cold War. The search in the Baltic Sea less than 30 miles (50 km) from Stockholm began on Friday and reawakened memories of the final years of the Cold War when Sweden repeatedly sought out suspected Soviet submarines along its coast with depth charges. ...
