It's gonna be a huge fall for Hailee Steinfeld. The Academy Award-nominated actress and recording artist will host and perform at the 2018 MTV EMAs airing live globally from Bilbao Exhibition Centre, Spain on Sunday, November 4 at 7:00pm ET/PT. The new gig comes ahead of her lead role in Paramount Pictures' new Transformers spin-off, Bumblebee, and her voice role as Gwen Stacy/Spider-Gwen in Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. MTV revealed Steinfeld as this year's EMAs host this morning through a Facebook Live sketch that was broadcast across its international platforms.

I do enjoy when WWE Superstar Mike “The Miz” Mizanin does his "Miz TV" shtick in the ring, and it's always been kind of a nice throwback to his days on MTV.  Having been a cast member and competitor in numerous Challenges over the years, The Miz returned to MTV's The Challenge as host last fall and will once again be leading the charge this spring during an epic ten-week special event The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars. This new season will feature ten celebrities and all-star athletes along with ten highly skilled, fan-favorite champions from past Challenge seasons. For the first time ever, teams will be mixed with both celebrities and Champs where they will face off in weekly eliminations, until one team will prove they are the ultimate “Challenge MVP.” Winners will compete for a chance to take a share of the $150,000 cash prize to donate to their beloved charities. The Challenge: Champs vs. Stars premieres April 17, 2018 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. Check out the trailer below...

The 1990s were a glorious time for music, especially rock music. It was a time when it wasn't uncommon to see quality bands rockin' the stage on television, with the heavier, and sometimes more unlikely acts entering the spotlight - often in unique venues. Back in 1995, MTV Invades Your Space served-up a chance for one lucky winner to play host - at their home - for shows like Singled Out, The Grind, and a performance by White Zombie. What's particularly interesting about the latter is that in a pre-show interview with Kennedy, Rob Zombie seemingly makes reference to a show I was at. "I like the Midwest," he says, "People know what it's all about out here. Breaking the seats and causing as much trouble and damage to every venue as possible so we can never come back again." Could this have been the infamous show at the Adler Theater in Davenport, Iowa from January of 1994? The one I wrote about here? Check out the 1995 MTV Invades Your Space performance, straight from a backyard in Indiana...

On November 24, Rhino will release REMTV, a six-disc DVD collection culled from the vaults of MTV - an outlet that unintentionally became a major partner for R.E.M. throughout their career. As part of the set, Alexander Young has crafted a feature-length documentary, R.E.M. by MTV, the trailer for which was just released today. In addition to appearing on the box set, the doc will also debut simultaneously on Palladia and VH1 Classic on November 22. Check it out below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

"I don't want to hear another word about Ninja Turtles," declared my wife tonight shortly after I returned from the gym and started messing around with a couple of "baby" (they're actually "Ninjas in Training") figures that Addie picked up at Toys "R" Us today. I told her that she wouldn't have liked me much back in 1990, as I was all about the first big-screen TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES film, and my wife is so anti-turtle. In fact, earlier tonight she was going on about how our girls should be learning about famous artists from other sources instead of painter-named reptiles or something... but it is #TMNTweek here on THE ROCK FATHER, so the exploits of our sewer-dwelling friends can be a little overwhelming - and... odd. Prime example? The new music video from acapella act PENTATONIX, "We Are Ninjas."

As we rock into the New Year, the landscape around Rock Father HQ looks an awful lot like HOTH, and that means a lot more time is being spent inside. Cold nights are often spent catching up on TV, and sometimes, DVD box sets are the way to go. That said, my friends at 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment have partnered with The Rock Father to get one lucky reader hooked up with an Ultimate TV Bundle pack featuring three of their recent DVD releases. These shows fall into that sorta PG+ realm, so they're not for the younger kids, but I'm sure that plenty of you have fans of FAMILY GUY, FUTURAMA, or TEEN WOLF that would be happy to have these for spending some time catching up on TV during these winter months ahead...
