For the new year, a new cable channel dedicated to young black women will hit the airwaves. And it promises to be more than just reruns, rehashed specials, depressing docuseries and R&B music videos viewers have seen elsewhere. The channel, CLEO TV—a nod to the Egyptian queen of two centuries past mostly known in pop culture for her legendary love affairs—is calling itself “a new aspirational lifestyle and entertainment cable network targeting millennial and Gen X women of color.” With a launch via Comcast Xfinity on Jan. 19, 2019, the channel will include a healthy soul-food cooking show, a home-improvement show hosted by a brother-and-sister duo and scripted a series about thirtysomething single black women. “No other network is singularly focused on young Gen X and millennial women of color,” network chief Michelle Rice told The Root. “The programming that targets this demographic is extremely fragmented. We want to be a destination … [Read more...] about Television for Colored Girls: CLEO TV Cozies Up to Black Millennial Women

Best Deals of the Day The best deals from around the web, updated daily. Black Friday is in the rearview mirror, and Cyber Monday looms. As usual, the middle Saturday is a good mix of new deals, plus a surprising number of Black Friday deals that are still available. We expect a lot of Cyber Monday deals to go live tomorrow, but until then, there’s plenty to tide you over. Bookmark Kinja Deals and follow us on Twitter and Facebook to never miss a deal. BEST TECH DEALS The release of the new Apple Watch Series 4 coincided with a price drop for the still-excellent Series 3. But this is deals week, which means prices have dropped even lower.

While it can’t handle the highest end games of the Oculus Rift, the portable Oculus Go doesn’t require a $1500+ gaming … [Read more...] about Saturday’s Best Deals: Not (Just) Black Friday Leftovers
When it comes to TV deals, there are few brands that can compete with Vizio. Sure, Samsung, Sony and LG might be able to drop their premium screens a few hundred bucks during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but you'll be hard-pressed to find something extraordinary from them for under $1,000.But that's not the case with Vizio.Not only are most Vizio TVs just as good as the competition, but thanks to some exceptional deals that happen right around the holidays, they're often available for around half the cost of the competition (see: the Vizio P-Series Quantum). The only problem with Vizio - and it's a good one to have - is that there are simply too many TVs on the market. With four series from 2018, and a dozen more from years prior, it can be hard to know which TVs are worth the cash - especially when the deals start flying fast and furious.To help you find the perfect screen at the perfect price, we've taken the liberty of creating a Vizio TV guide specifically for Black Friday. … [Read more...] about Vizio Black Friday TV deals 2018: which Vizio TVs should you buy this year?
