Kevin Kline to return to Broadway this spring in a comedy

Kevin Kline is returning to Broadway in a delightfully frantic comedy about a narcissistic actor and the chaos that inevitably erupts in his posh London household.

The Oscar and Tony Award winner will star in Noel Coward's "Present Laughter." Opening night is set for April 5 at the St. James Theatre.

The play will be directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel, who recently directed Robert Askins' "Hand to God."

Klein's recent Broadway credits include "Cyrano de Bergerac," ''Henry IV" and "Ivanov." He won Tony Awards for "The Pirates of Penzance" and "On the Twentieth Century." His movies include "Sophie's Choice," ''The Big Chill," ''A Fish Called Wanda," ''In & Out" and "Dave."

Tony Awards show sets key dates for '17, but still no home

The Tony Awards will be held on June 11 next year, but where the ceremony will be held is still up in the air.

The Broadway League on Tuesday set the date for the ceremony and put the official eligibility cut-off date as April 27. Nominations will be announced live on May 2.

But the location of the big show is still up in the air. Last year, organizers went back to the Beacon Theatre on Manhattan's Upper West Side.

The 6,000-seat Radio City Music Hall has for years been the preferred home for the awards because of its size and proximity to Broadway. But MSG Entertainment used Radio City for its "The New York Spectacular" and hopes to keep it an annual event.

CBS will again televise the event.

Debate reaches 84 million viewers, toppling record

The showdown between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump was the most-watched presidential debate ever, with 84 million viewers.

The Nielsen company said the viewership, over 13 different networks, toppled a record that had stood for 36 years. The previous record for presidential debate viewership was the 80.6 million people who saw the only debate in 1980 between incumbent Democrat Jimmy Carter and his Republican challenger Ronald Reagan.

At the time of the Carter-Reagan debate, the U.S. population was 226 million. Now, it is 324 million, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

No debate since then had exceeded 70 million viewers.

Social media was humming, too, with Nielsen saying there were some 17.1 million Twitter interactions involving 2.7 million people on Monday. Tivo said that the moment during the debate that caused more people to pause their television and play back what was said came near the end, when Trump said that he will "absolutely support" Clinton if she is elected president.

Clinton has some bragging rights at home. When final results are in, the audience for her first presidential debate will more than double what her husband, former President Bill Clinton, received for his last presidential debate in 1996 (36.3 million viewers).

Only the Super Bowl annually commands a television audience of that size. The biggest audience in U.S. television history was the 114.4 million people who watched the 2015 Super Bowl between New England and Seattle.

The news was particularly good for NBC. Not only did it have more viewers than any other network showing the debate, but "Nightly News" anchor Lester Holt's reviews as moderator were more positive than Matt Lauer received for his interviews with the candidates at a national security forum earlier this month, or CNBC anchors when they did a GOP debate last fall.

Watching the debate was nerve-wracking for NBC Universal chief executive Steve Burke because of the pressure on Holt. Burke said at an appearance in London on Tuesday that Holt "ended up doing a very good job."

Holt was not available for an interview on Tuesday.

Some Republicans were unhappy with Holt, suggesting that he was unfair because he asked tougher questions of Trump, and challenged his facts on issues like Trump's support for the war in Iraq and a court case involving the "stop-and-frisk" method of policing.

That may account for an overnight change of thinking by the candidate. Interviewed by reporters immediately after the debate, Trump said that "I thought Lester did a really good job" and that he thought Holt brought up the topics he wanted.

Several hours later, on Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends," Trump said he thought Holt earned a C or a C-plus for his debate performance, and that he asked unfair questions.

The second of three scheduled debates will be Oct. 9. The "town hall"-style forum will be moderated by CNN's Anderson Cooper and ABC News' Martha Raddatz.

Selena Gomez's Instagram account hits 100M followers

Selena Gomez isn't keeping her Instagram account to herself. The pop star has become the most followed celebrity on the popular photo sharing site.

Gomez's Instagram account became the first to hit the 100-million follower mark this week.

The "Hands to Myself" and "Same Old Love" singer now tops such fellow celebrity Instagramers as Taylor Swift (91.4 million), Beyonce (85.3 million), Ariana Grande (85 million) and Kim Kardashian West (83.6 million).

The last photo she posted was an image of herself on stage six weeks ago.

Gomez said in a statement last month that she's taking a break from the spotlight to deal with anxiety, panic attacks and depression stemming from her battle with lupus.

The singer said in a statement to People magazine that she wanted "to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off."
