Norman Weiss

Every day Norman Weiss combs through countless websites, blogs, Tweets and photos to curate the most comprehensive roundup of breaking TV news found anywhere for his daily column, TV Tattle--once named by Entertainment Weekly as one of "our 25 favorite online entertainment sites." From show orders and cancellations to big castings and primetime controversies, he keeps tabs of it all. Despite growing up without cable, Norman became addicted to television at the age of 10 when his parents put their old TV set in his room. He was born and raised in Hollywood and spent his teenhood being pointlessly annoyed whenever Melrose Place shot on location on his beloved Melrose Avenue. His mom was one of Jimmy Kimmel’s first TV prank victims on the pilot of The Man Show, but she didn’t learn about it until six years later... when her son stumbled upon it on cable syndication.
