Controversies[edit]

In the section of this article, "Controversies and bias", an author states that "E! is often accused of dispensing 'shallow' and 'irrelevant' news and of supporting a liberal bias. It is strongly critical of the Republican Party in general, and George W. Bush in particular, especially of his judgment in beginning the Iraq War."

I think this section should be deleted if examples of such liberal bias are not listed. It is definitely unfair to deem the network biased without evidence for our readers to decide for themselves. This section seems to be more of an opinion than a fact and belongs in a blog and not Wikipedia.

I agree. Searching for 'liberal bias' online is less than productive, though. :p Ipsenaut 07:30, 22 August 2005 (UTC)
I don't see anything on here disputing neutrality, so I'm removing the disputed template. Cooleyez229 18:02, 24 September 2005 (UTC)

Incorrect[edit]

Diseny does not own any part of E! anymore Comast bought it's part for 1.23 billion dollars in November 2006 Maybe you should check all of your facts because I doudt this is all that's wrong--KELLY CLARKSON NUMBER 1 SINGER! 20:43, 14 October 2007 (UTC)


Nilesat[edit]

It also shows on Nilesat

The early days[edit]

There used to be a bumper segment with a man (wearing a helmet?) carrying the E! logo around on his back while music played and some deep voices said "E!" I think there was a part where papparazzi camera bulbs flashed at you. The tune and segment ended with the E! logo on screen and the same deep-voiced "E!" Does anyone remember this?

Howard Stern[edit]

Why is Howard Stern no longer mentioned as once having a show on E!? 71.101.84.191 (talk) 00:27, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

International versions[edit]

For some reason only Canada is mentioned, there's a lot of missing information there about other International versions, such as the UK one which broadcasts on Sky 151. Digifiend (talk) 23:40, 26 August 2012 (UTC) I agree. This should be added. For reference E! started broadcasting 02 December 2002 (according to BARB2002 documentation from AGB Nielsen).

E! Presents[edit]

Comcast's "Video On Demand" is presented by something called "E! Presents - Video On Demand" featuring a rotation of various well-known E! hosts. This cannot be listed in the stub article on E! programming because it does not air on E!, but it IS an example of an E! production. I don't know where it should go in this article, but it is significant in that it is seen by many people and showcases E!'s store of hosting talent. jg (talk) 06:33, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

Reelz[edit]

Currently, the only entry in the "See Only" section is "Reelz." Apparently it is listed due to its similarity of content to E!'s early incarnation as Movietime. I don't see any other connection - certainly no direct connection. Its slight similarity to what E! once was is dubious enough, but there is even less reason to "See Also" it now. If the goal was to present a list of similar channels, others could be found that share some elements in common with E!. I'm not sure why we would want such a list, but if similar content is an interest to a reader of this article; then, it should be better than this one, random-seeming, entry. Thoughts? jg (talk) 06:45, 18 February 2014 (UTC)
