    When ABC’s reboot of “Roseanne” premiered last month, the show decimated others competing in similar time slots. “Roseanne” had been off the air for nearly 20 years but returned as a rousing success. It even managed to beat out CBS’s exclusive interview with former porn star and Trump accuser Stormy Daniels. The March 27 premiere reported early ratings of 18.5 million million viewers with a 5.1 rating among adults aged 18-49.

    The ABC "Comey" interview was not the blockbuster advertised. Out of 330,000,000 million American a scrawny, 9,800,000 viewers tuned in. That adds up to about five percent of the American population Shucks, the old, has-been porno star "Stormy Daniels" boring as she was, garnered 21,000,000 viewers on CBS, Sixty Minutes. And, of course the Country Music Awards wiped James Comey off the face of the earth, last evening. But, folks, do not despair......the Obamabot low life have begun to attack each other with Comey, McCabe and Lynch, ripping each other apart as to who told lies or did not tell...

  • Vanity - Jimmy Kimmel mocks Melania Trump "foreign" accent & rips 12 year old Barron Trump.

    Jimmy Kimmel mocks Melania & Barron Trump on his late night show. I can't stand this guy, for he is the lowest form of living humanity, just simply human scum & vermin, in total. No words are needed or required to address his sick and hateful verbal actions...they speak very clearly for themselves. At first, I was going to scream out for a public petition to "ABC" TV to dump his sorry butt, but, in thinking that over, he should remain right where he is, destroying the Democrat Party politically and himself with them. My Mom spoke with a heavy...

    With the reboot craze in full swing, it was probably always just a matter of time before Roseanne returned to our screens. In its heyday, the series was the #1 program on TV, and it remained within the top 20 for eight seasons. Acclaimed for its realistic portrayal of blue-collar families as well as progressive takes on everything from race to sexuality, Roseanne opened the door for countless sitcoms that came after it. One thing that was also notorious about the series during its initial run was the backstage turmoil and constant presence in the press; star Roseanne Barr famously...

    Nearly a week since U.S. President Donald Trump fired national security adviser Michael Flynn, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul advised against appointing former U.N. Ambassador and White House Chief of Staff John Bolton. Trump’s first choice, retired Navy special forces officer Robert Harward, who served under Defense Secretary John Mattis, turned down the position last week and reports say the White House has ruled out former CIA Director David Petraeus, who was ousted as the nation’s top spy amid a scandal over his sharing confidential documents with his mistress. Flynn resigned last week amid questions on whether he discussed sanctions with...

    Karl Schmid, an on-camera reporter for ABC’s Los Angeles affiliate, came out as HIV positive on Friday night in a powerful Facebook post about stigma and acceptance. The 37-year-old Australian import covers human interest stories and Hollywood on ABC7, reporting from events like the Academy Awards and the annual Vanity Fair Oscar party. After a decade living with HIV, Schmid said he came forward despite numerous industry peers urging him to stay quiet. “For 10 years I’ve struggled with ‘do I or don’t I?’ For ten years the stigma and industry professionals have said, ‘don’t! It’ll ruin you,”’ wrote Schmid....

    In what really could only be described as a completely bonkers conspiracy theory, The Nation magazine editor Katrina vanden Heuvel suggested Sunday that Rex Tillerson was fired from the secretary of state position because his replacement was funded by the Koch brothers and because the administration wanted a war with Iran. If youÂ’re confused, donÂ’t worry, the rest of the liberal panel on ABCÂ’s This Week didnÂ’t seem to be able to follow her convoluted mess either. The ridiculousness began when a conversation about the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was derailed by vanden Heuvel, who decided...

    Aerial footage shows the aftermath of the FIU pedestrian bridge collapsing on Southwest Eighth Street in Miami on March 15, 2018. Pedro Portal Miami Herald In the hours after a 950-ton pedestrian bridge over Tamiami Trail collapsed Thursday afternoon, killing at least four people, civil engineers began to speculate about potential causes. Was it a design error? Did something go wrong during construction? The answer may be buried deep in the calculations made by workers who were conducting a stress test on the unfinished and vulnerable bridge. Any such test, experts told the Miami Herald, requires extreme care and precision...

    Far-left late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, who is currently one of the most polarizing and divisive personalities in the country, admitted he has seen polls that show that his partisanship “has cost me commercially.” “According to polls I’ve seen, it has cost me commercially,” he told Oprah Winfrey in an interview for her O Magazine. “That’s not ideal, but I wouldn’t change anything I said.” “I know my job is, for the most part, to entertain people and make them laugh. That said, if I can be selfish every once in a while and talk about something serious that’s important to...

    Monday was marked by the rolling train wreck that was former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg’s seemingly non-stop appearances on cable news shows taunting Special Counsel Robert Mueller for subpoenaing him. During his wild interviews (which lasted from mid-afternoon into the night), Nunberg made numerous suggestions that federal investigators may have some kind of case against President Trump. And that was all the liberal network news outlets needed to run with it. Both CBS Evening News and ABC’s World News Tonight kicked off their programs with the jaw-dropping spectacle. On CBS, anchor Jeff Glor even announced that they were pushing back...

    FULL TITLE:‘Keep your damn mouth shut …’ ABC tries to get Dolly Parton to trash Trump and her answer is brilliant Reaching all the way back to the iconic 1980 movie “9 to 5,” which featured Dolly Parton, ABC News tried in vain to get country music legend to denounce President Donald Trump by likening him to the sexist boss in the film. “The sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical portrayed so effectively in that movie by actor Dabney Coleman hasn’t exactly disappeared from the culture,” said Nightline correspondent David Wright. “We have a president of the United States who said the...

    FULL TITLE: ABC Refuses to Apologize for Joy Behar Saying Mike Pence Has a “Mental Illness” Because He’s a Christian It looks like ABC isn’t going to apologize for “The View” co-host Joy Behar’s on-air mocking of Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith. Many Christian viewers were offended by Behar’s remarks, and the TV network early on received 25,363 phone calls after the liberal comedian and commentator equated Pence’s faith with “mental illness,” Fox News reported. “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you,” Behar said during the Feb. 13 episode of “The...

    The folks behind the Academy Awards are starting to figure out that most Americans don’t want to hear left wing political lectures from movie stars. Ratings for other recent awards shows have been disastrous and they don’t want a repeat of that. The New York Times reported: In This #MeToo Moment, Academy Awards Want to Spotlight the Films “We want to make it as entertaining as possible — reverential and respectful but also fun and emotional,” said Jennifer Todd, one of the lead producers of the Academy Awards, which will be hosted for the second year in a row by...

    On ABC’s February 22 show, The View hosts addressed the White House listening session and CNN town hall that occurred the day before about the Parkland school shooting, but spread some misinformation along the way, as usual. Host Sunny Hostin began by complaining that President Trump’s response to the shooting was “more guns” not “less:” I was surprised that the president even after this listening session seemed to suggest that teachers should -- that the answer is having more guns rather than less. And he mentioned the teachers should carry weapons. And I just -- teachers are there to teach our...

    The women of ABC News' “The View” took a shot a Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith on Tuesday, mocking the former governor of Indiana for talking to Jesus and even calling it a “mental illness.” It all started when they played a clip from “Celebrity Big Brother,” in which former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman discussed the vice president. “As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence… everyone that is wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life,” she said in the clip. “I am Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks...
