Ashlee Simpson-Ross and Evan Ross Debut Their New Song "Paris" on ASHLEE+EVAN. They say marriage is all about compromise! And on this week's all-new ASHLEE+EVAN, Ashlee Simpson-Ross and Evan Ross worked hard to get to one after butting heads over releasing their new track "Paris." "You hear that new mix?" Evan asked Ashlee. "It sounds crazy." "The Paris one?" "Yeah, it sounds good," Ashlee agreed. "You maybe wanna just put that one out? Get a vibe?" Evan prodded. "No!" Ashlee insisted. "That's not how I want to put our first song out after like, this many years." After Ashlee's SNL experience, the mom of two was not going to put anything out unless it was perfect. "You've never done this before. I have," Ashlee reminded her husband. "And if you make a mistake or whatever...I've had albums out and you make a stupid mistake or you do something like that and you can never f--king take that back." Thanks to some advice from Ashlee's dad Joe Simpson, Evan was able to get the clarity he needed to meet his wife halfway. "When me and Ashlee start moving, it's exciting 'cause things are actually happening," Evan confided in Joe. "All of a sudden there's a stop and I could tell it's become a little too real and she's pulling back." "When you're young, you're fearless, right? You haven't had failure yet," the former manager explained. "And then as you grow and you go through failures and you go through mistakes, then all of a sudden these voices get in your head." "That's part of maturity, you have to manage the voices," Joe added. And manage he did. After giving his wife the room she needed to release her music comfortably, Ashlee was on board to give "Paris" a preview. "I'm not ready to like, perform tomorrow and those steps are maybe too far for me, but maybe we like, play our music or something," Ashlee suggested to Evan. "I feel like we need a night out. I don't know, maybe play a song somewhere." After kissing and making up, the couple agreed to debut the track at Evan's club Warwick in Hollywood. "I hope that I didn't push Ashlee too much and that she's actually doing it 'cause she wants to do it, not because she's doing it for me," Evan confessed to the camera. Surrounded by their friends, the DJ hit play on the sultry track. "Every time you let people hear your music, I feel like it's kinda like you're sharing a piece of you with them," Ashlee explained. "I feel like we're just taking our clothes off and putting our music on." After baring their souls to the intimate crowd, the couple danced the night away as "Paris" played in the background. Brand new episode of ASHLEE+EVAN Sunday at 10 p.m., on E! (Eonline)
TV Ratings: 'Sunday Night Football' Up Year to Year in Early Numbers. NBC's primetime NFL game dominates Sunday's ratings, and '60 Minutes' also gets a sizable boost from a football lead-in. NBC coasted to a ratings win Sunday on the back of its NFL coverage -- which is either up some or on par with the same week a year ago, depending on which set of numbers you look at. Sunday Night Football delivered a 13.8 household rating/24 share in metered markets, off a modest 4 percent vs. last week but up 10 percent vs. week two in 2017 (12.5/21). In the fast nationals, the Dallas Cowboys' 20-13 win over the New York Giants averaged 18.17 million viewers and a 6.2 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic. That's ever-so-slightly behind the preliminary 18.46 million and 6.4 for the same night last year (which adjusted up to 20.24 million and 7.1). CBS' ratings are also subject to change thanks to a late-afternoon NFL game bleeding into primetime. But starting at 7:37 p.m. ET, 60 Minutes averaged a 2.6 in the demo and 11.91 million viewers, its best outing in several months. Big Brother is currently at 1.65 among adults 18-49, which would be on the high side of the show's Sunday average if it holds. ABC got a 0.9 from Celebrity Family Feud (-0.2 vs. its last episode) and a 0.7 from The $100,000 Pyramid (-0.1). NBC easily led the night's network standings with a 5.1 rating in the 18-49 demo, pending updates. CBS is second at 2.0, also pending updates, and ABC and Fox (which aired a full night of repeats) tied for third at 0.7. (Hollywood Reporter)
