For weeks Discovery Channel teased that a man would be eaten alive by an Anaconda on television, but the attempt was a bit of a failure Sunday night, leaving a bad taste in everyone's mouth - including the snake.

Researcher Paul Rosolie had constructed a special suit that would allow both him the snake to survive inside the belly of the beast, and protect him from the force of constriction. A number of videos were posted online hyping the event and showing off the science behind the suit.

But at mealtime, instead of a engulfing the host whole, the snake had only started wrapping around his body and biting his helmet before rescuers came to his aid.

The internet was naturally expecting something a bit more extreme, and they took to Twitter to express their distaste - many comparing it to Geraldo's infamous special "The Mystery of Al Capone's Vaults."

In an earlier interview with EW, Rosolie is careful not actually reveal how much he was eaten.

"Well, the story of this is an attempt. When you say Nik Wallenda is going to cross the Chicago skyline, they didn't promise he was going to make it; they promised he would attempt it," he said.

Animal rights groups initially protested the show, and Rosolie says he was attempting the stunt to raise awareness about the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest.

"The Soup" host and "Community" star Joel McHale is about to take on the trolls!

E! has greenlit his pilot for "Comments Section," which will star Michael Kosta and "focus on deconstructing the often snarky comments on popular websites."

Not sure if this will shame them, or encourage them…

Things are about to get a whole lot nastier down there.

One word: "Groovy."

Starz has announced that it is bringing the Evil Dead series back to life, reuniting director Sam Raimi with producer Rob Tapert and the original star of the series, Bruce Campbell.

The show is titled "Ash vs. Evil Dead" and will run 10 episodes in the first season, which is scheduled to air in 2015.

But it's been a while since the last film - the original "Evil Dead" aired in 1981, and Bruce Campbell is now 56 years old. So what will the plot involve?

Bruce Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its "Evil" grip.
"I'm really excited to bring this series to the Evil Dead fans worldwide - it's going to be everything they have been clamoring for: serious deadite ass-kicking and plenty of outrageous humor," said Bruce Campbell.

Attention Netflix subscribers: Now that you've already binged away your life on "House of Cards" and "Orange is the New Black," there's some good news.

A new show is in the works!

Netflix has bought the rights to produce an original TV series based on the dark children's books, "A Series of Unfortunate Events."

And here's what Lemony Snicket (i.e. author Daniel Handler) himself has to say about it:

"I can't believe it," Mr. Snicket said, from an undisclosed location. "After years of providing top-quality entertainment on demand, Netflix is risking its reputation and its success by associating itself with my dismaying and upsetting books."

A film version based on the first book starring Jim Carrey was released back in 2004.

Omaha based news station KETV decided to take advantage of the incredibly unfortunate similaries between the real-life situation of Mayasia Airlines flight MH370 and the fictional series "Lost" and make a promotion out of it.

Lost is a fictional television show with polar bears, smoke monsters, and mysterious deities on a tropical island, while the 239 people on MH370 are still missing or likely dead. Their families and loved ones are distraught with grief, and authorities are no closer to finding the plane or any remains in the Indian Ocean almost two weeks after it disappeared.

Even comedian Paul Scheer, who hosted the Lost 10-year reunion panel at the Paley Center Sunday night, asked the audience to refrain from asking the show's creators and actors about MH370.

KETV has since deleted the inconsiderate tweet.
