The Daily Dish Podcast – Wednesday, July 15

ABC named Tyra Banks as the new host of Dancing with the Stars.
She replaces Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews, who were fired only one day ago. ABC plans a “creative refresh” of Dancing with the Stars for season 29 while “honoring the show America loves.”
Tyra Banks once hosted America’s Got Talent for two summers. She created and judged America’s Next Top Model. She said Tuesday, (quote) “I’ve been a fan of DWTS since its beginning. I’m excited to continue the legacy and put on my executive producer and hosting hats.”
Two weeks ago, victims of Harvey Weinstein settled on a $19 million payment to be shared. But the judge rejected that deal negotiated by New York Attorney General’s Office.
Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein said in court on Tuesday, (quote) “I will not give preliminary approval to the settlement.”
Six accusers complained about the $19 million agreement, which they called “one of the most one-sided and unfair class settlements in history.” They claimed the lion’s share would go to attorneys leaving them “only $10,000 to $20,000” each.
Judge Hellerstein told the lawyers to seek a better agreement.
ViacomCBS severed ties with Nick Cannon, who expressed anti-Semitic conspiracies on his podcast.
Nick currently was hosting a rebirth of his MTV show Wild’n Out, which now airs on VH1. No word on whether the show will survive without him in it.
The company on Tuesday released a statement,  (quote) “ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism. We have spoken with Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast Cannon’s Class on YouTube, which promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.”
Two weeks ago, Nick Cannon invited Professor Griff to his podcast. He was once a member of Public Enemy. He departed 30 years ago in the wake of making anti-Semitic remarks.
Naya Rivera’s four-year-old son need not worry about college tuition. The three creators of the TV show Glee promised to establish a scholarship fund for Josey.
Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan released a lengthy statement on Tuesday that said in part, (quote) “We are heartbroken over the loss of our friend Naya Rivera. She was warm and caring and fiercely protective of the rest of the Glee cast. She was tough and demanding. She was fun. She was kind. She was generous. Our hearts go out to her family. The three of us are currently in the process of creating a college fund for the beautiful son Naya loved most of all.”
The results of the autopsy were released on Tuesday. The official cause of Naya’s death is drowning. The coroner did not detect traces of alcohol or drugs.
