"SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE" AIRS TONIGHT

NEW YORK (AP) -- If Ian Ziering (EYE'-uhn ZEER'-ing) didn't need health insurance he might not have made "Sharknado." He worried that the movie would turn out to be really bad. But an actor has to make a certain amount of money each year to be eligible for health insurance, so he took the job, and it turned out to be one of the biggest hits of his career. Ziering now stars in the sequel "Sharknado 2: The Second One," which airs tonight on Syfy.

SOUND:

<<CUT ..001 (07/30/14)>> 00:32 ""

Michael Weinfeld

Ian Ziering has his wife to thank for starring in the "Sharknado" movies. AP Entertainment Editor Michael Weinfeld explains why.

<<CUT ..002 (07/30/14)>> 00:15 "actually bury me"

Ian Ziering (EYE'-uhn ZEER'-ing)

Ian Ziering says he didn't want to do the first "Sharknado" because the special effects could've been really cheezy. ((longer version of cut in wrap))

<<CUT ..003 (07/30/14)>> 00:15 "for the team"

Ian Ziering (EYE'-uhn ZEER'-ing)

Ian Ziering says his pregnant wife insisted on him taking the role so they could qualify for insurance.

<<CUT ..004 (07/30/14)>> 00:10 "for doing it"

Ian Ziering (EYE'-uhn ZEER'-ing)

Ian Ziering says he owes his wife for one of the biggest hits of his career.

WILL "SHARKNADO 2" EAT TWITTER AGAIN?

UNDATED (AP) -- The first "Sharknado" blew up Twitter. People were posting about 5,000 tweets per minute. We'll see if people are as interested in the sequel, which airs tonight on Syfy. If not, they'll have another chance. "Sharknado 3" is in the works.

"GET ON UP" - CHADWICK BOSEMAN

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Chadwick Boseman was terrified of playing James Brown in "Get On Up." How terrified? Here are the percentages. Boseman says 60 percent of his fear came from learning to dance like Brown and 30 percent was from the pressure of trying to dispel the myths about Brown. The other 10 percent was just a general fear of playing an icon. "Get On Up" opens Friday.

SOUND:

<<CUT ..005 (07/30/14)>> 00:14 "any easy part"

Chadwick Boseman

Chadwick Boseman says all aspects of playing James Brown made him nervous about doing the role.

<<CUT ..006 (07/30/14)>> 00:15 "have that playing"

Chadwick Boseman

Chadwick Boseman says the song "Lost Someone" from James Brown's "Live at the Apollo" album helped him get into the role.

"EXTANT" BEING MOVED BACK AN HOUR TO TRY TO BOOST RATINGS

NEW YORK (AP) -- "Extant" is being moved back an hour to see if it can get better ratings. Starting tonight, it'll air at 10, Eastern daylight time, right after "Criminal Minds." CBS hopes Criminal Minds will be a better lead-in than "Big Brother." Extant was watched by about six and a-half million people last week. That's good enough for 10th place in the ratings, but not as good as CBS was hoping for its highest-profile new drama of the summer. Both episodes of "America's Got Talent" rank one and two in the ratings. They were each watched by more than 10 million people. "The Bachelorette" is in sixth place, followed by "Under the Dome" and "Big Brother."
