TUESDAY, AUG. 23

TV-FALL SEASON GOLD RUSH — The fall TV season marks a reset of sorts, signaling an influx of new shows and a respite from reruns, as it did in autumns past when only three networks ruled. But despite this time-honored ritual of rebirth, the comings and goings of series has evolved into a seamless affair that goes on year-round, boosted by the escalating number of video outlets.

FOX NEWS-SEXUAL HARASSMENT — Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros says in a lawsuit she was sexually harassed by former network chief Roger Ailes and other top executives. SENT: 370 words.

MUSIC-SO GONE CHALLENGE — R&B singer Monica says she’s happy to see 13-year-old hit “So Gone” trend heavily online social media and find a new audience with younger kids. Her 2003 song, produced by Missy Elliott, has enjoyed a rebirth since the #SoGoneChallenge was introduced, where rappers — or anyone — spit rhymes over the track’s slick beat. It reached new heights when Chance the Rapper posted a video of his version earlier this month followed by one by Monica, which spiked the song’s sales and streaming numbers. By Music Writer Mesfin Fekadu. UPCOMING: 500 words, photos by 2 p.m.

MUSIC-BARBRA STREISAND — Sometimes even Barbra Streisand needs a little help from her friends. The 74-year-old decided early on that her new album would feature Broadway duets so she called on Anne Hathaway, Daisy Ridley, Hugh Jackman, Jamie Foxx and Bradley Cooper to bring her vision to life. The result: “Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway,” a quirky mix of surprising and entertaining collaborations. By Nicole Evatt. SENT: 740 words, photos.

TV-HENRY WINKLER — Not three minutes into an interview about his new reality show, “Better Late Than Never,” Henry Winkler says he’s grateful — a sentiment he repeats again and again as he discusses his 40 years in Hollywood. By Entertainment Writer Sandy Cohen. SENT: 690 words, photos.

THEATER-MISS SAIGON — American audiences will get the rare chance to catch a sneak peek of the new “Miss Saigon” before it opens on Broadway next spring. They just have to go to a movie theater. By Drama Writer Mark Kennedy. SENT: 540 words, photos.

HANDS OF STONE — “Hands of Stone,” a film about Panama’s boxing legend Roberto Duran starring Venezuelan Edgar Ramirez, is the classic story of a rags-to-riches boxer, but it also delves into the psychological drama of the sport. By Eric Nunez. SENT: 700 words, photos.

FORBES-HIGHEST-PAID ACTRESSES — Jennifer Lawrence is a girl on fire — at least monetarily speaking. The actress topped Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s highest-paid actress for the second straight year, banking $46 million thanks to her paycheck for the final “Hunger Games” installment. SENT: 125 words, photos.

ARTWORK DISPUTE-VERDICT — A federal judge in Chicago is set to issue a verdict in a civil trial over a Scottish-born artist’s insistence that he did not paint a landscape work once valued at more than $10 million. By Michael Tarm. SENT: 420 words, photos. Will be updated.
