After the coffee. Before seeing if "Arrested Development" is still great.
The Skinny: Like most journalists, I can be a little jaded at times. But in reality my job is not so bad. Tonight I'll get to go watch new episodes of "Arrested Development." Pretty Cool. Monday's headlines include a box office recap and a preview of the upcoming legal battle between members of Michael Jackson's family and entertainment giant AEG. Finally, if you are interested in receiving an email alert when the Morning Fix is live drop us a line and we'll try to make it happen.
Daily dose: Endemol, the production company behind "Big Brother" and "Wipe Out," has struck a deal to acquire the majority share of Israeli production company Kuperman, which will be renamed Endemol Israel. Kuperman produces scripted and non-scripted shows, some of which have been exported to the U.S.
Pain & more pain. It wasn't a great weekend at the box office. "Pain & Gain," the Michael Bay-directed dark comedy starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, finished first but only took in $20 million. "The Big Wedding" was an even bigger flop as it sold only $7.5 million in tickets. Overall, the U.S. box office was down almost 20% compared with the same weekend a year ago. The good news is that next week "Iron Man 3" will be in theaters and that should provide a big lift. The movie has already made almost $200 million overseas. Box office recaps from the Los Angeles Times and Movie City News.
