Japan self-censors images, words linked to hostage crisis

Images or mentions of knives, ransom or blood — or anything else that can be seen alluding to the hostage crisis involving two Japanese in Syria — have been omitted. Some anime and other entertainment programs are altering, canceling or postponing episodes violating those sensitivities — typical of the kind of self-restraint shown here to avoid controversy.

Rob Owen: 'Blacklist' on the move

PASADENA, Calif. - NBC's James Spader drama "The Blacklist" airs an episode Sunday after "Super Bowl XLIX" - listings show an approximate 10:15 p.m. start time but because the actual start time will depend on how long the game runs, that's likely to change; set your DVR to record earlier and later - and then moves to a new night and time: 9 p.m. Thursday starting next week.
