    .....During their appearance, Jimmy also asked Bono to comment on President Donald Trump. "Everything's different now. It really is, the game has changed," Bono expressed. "I have so much respect for a lot of the people who voted President Trump into office. I really understand, I understand the anger, I have some of that anger myself coming from where we came from. I understand people being disillusioned in the political process. I don't think he's the cure for this problem and I think he might even make it worse. I don't think that there's any evidence in his life that...
  • Cyril Hanouna: French host humiliates gay men on live TV

    A record number of people have complained after a French TV presenter posted a spoof ad on a gay dating website and made fun of people who responded live on air. Cyril Hanouna used a feminine tone of voice and tricked those he spoke to into revealing their sexual fantasies. One of the victims was left in a "state of appalling distress", LGBT campaigners said. They accused the presenter of homophobia. Nearly 20,000 complaints about the segment on Mr Hanouna's nightly show Touche pas à mon poste (TPMP - "Don't touch my TV" in English) had been made to the...
  • 3 best TV episodes of all time?

    05/19/2017 6:42:04 PM PDT · by MNDude · 237 replies
    There are probably tens of thousands of TV episodes from the different decades. Most of them are probably pretty lousy looking back, but of course a few were rather stellar. The episode on Little House on the Prairie where Mary goes blind, nightmare at 20000 feet on the Twilight Zone, the episode with a huge battle on Game of Thrones, or the Pilot of The Wonder Years are examples of some great episodes. In your opinion, what are the three greatest TV episodes of all time?

    More than a quarter-million people have put their names to a petition demanding ABC bring back the highly-rated conservative sitcom Last Man Standing. The fan-created petition titled “Save Tim Allen’s Show ‘Last Man Standing” has garnered more than 275,000 signatures in less than a week’s time. “Last Man Standing stands out in the sea of network television sitcoms. It is a show that appeals to a broad swath of Americans who find very few shows that extol the virtues with which they can identify; namely conservative values,” petition creator “Deputy Matt” wrote. “Last Man Standing is one of the...

    Last Man Standing has finally fallen. Tim Allen’s sitcom has been canceled by ABC after six seasons. The long-running comedy has been something of an anomaly. Due to modest ratings, Last Man Standing has been considered “on the bubble” for a renewal every season since it launched in 2011. Yet the Friday night show always managed to squeak into another year — until now. The show’s final season averaged 8.1 million viewers and a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49. No word yet on Last Man Standing‘s time slot companion on Friday nights, Dr. Ken, which is also on the bubble...

    There is very dangerous legislation making its way through both the House of Representatives and Senate that will finish the United States. The sharia bill calls for Islamic blasphemy laws — the criminalization of speech that offends or insults — who, exactly? Well, that is up to the enforcer, is it not? On Wednesday, Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) introduced “The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014″ (S.2219), which seeks “to examine the prevalence of hate crime and hate speech on the Internet, television, and radio to better address such crimes.” Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) introduced a companion bill in the...

    Last week this show took a hard left going anti-gun. This week it went even further left quoting the bogus statistics on percentage of people who support Universal Background Checks. It's like this show is the fantasy of every leftist who wishes they could have won the vote they lost under obummer and thank God they did.

    Chuck Barris, who hosted “The Gong Show” and created “The Dating Game” and “The Newlywed Game,” died Tuesday of natural causes in Palisades, N.Y., his publicist confirmed. He was 87. His autobiography, “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” was made into a film directed by George Clooney and starred Sam Rockwell as Barris. In the book (subtitled “An Unauthorized Autobiography”), he claimed to have worked for the CIA as an assassin during the 1960s and ’70s, a claim which the CIA denied.

    There’s a reason why it usually doesn’t end well when a kid goes straight from a life of party and privilege to the bright lights of a professional sports career. They have no clue how to handle the responsibility of fame and fortune. Just look at the fall of Johnny Manziel. There’s a reason why it usually doesn’t end well when someone mired in unemployed poverty wins the lottery and lands in the lap of luxury. They are oblivious about how to maneuver the challenges of money and power. Just look at the depressing case of David Lee Edwards. And...
  • TV Networks Fret as Midseason Shows Fail to Connect With Viewers

    The year 2017 hasn't been forgiving to the broadcast networks. With a whopping 17 scripted launches since Jan. 1, nearly all new series are languishing with low ratings, even by today's modest standards. But that may not be entirely the new shows' fault: The root of midseason's problem, some say, is the middling fall that preceded it. "In the past, midseason success was typically built on the foundation established in the fall," says Sam Armando, lead investment director at MediaVest-Spark, noting all but NBC (and sports-lifted Fox) are down this year. "Since only This Is Us popped in the fall,...

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    There appears to be a persistent popularity among those that strive to avoid the machinations of the MSM of George Orwell’s novel 1984. It fits in well with those that distrust the “Big State” and who prize personal freedom above all else. And although it is studied in many schools across the world, the lessons and warnings that we can take from it are being largely ignored. Supposed freethinkers and “Liberals” are actively engaged in practices that have almost exact parallels with Orwell’s dystopian classic. This is essentially a list of parallels that those familiar with the book will likely...

    Sadly, these network executives are more committed to their liberalism than drawing viewers or making money It has been many years since late night television comedy was enjoyable. Its heyday was during the Johnny Carson era when Americans were entertained by a host with tremendous skill. Carson was a true talent who combined great humor with impeccable timing. The Tonight Show featured the best guests and a host who knew how to hold an audience. Carson did not have to stoop to crude humor and he did not alienate Republicans or Democrats, for he made fun of politicians from both...

    “USA [Network’s] gay-murder mystery Eyewitness was canceled, and CBS’s Doubt—the first network television show to feature a trans actress (Laverne Cox) as a trans in a lead role—was dropped after just two shows. But the far more visible failure is ABC’s over-hyped gay agenda mini-series When We Rise, which crashed like a cheap Pride Parade float last week.
  • The number of US homes without a TV doubled in just 6 years

    The amount of homes that don't own a TV has at least doubled since 2009. According to the USEI survey, 2.6% of American homes didn't have a TV in 2015. That's a huge increase from the 1.3% of American homes that didn't have a television in 2009. In fact, from 1997 to 2009, the percentage remained stable at 1.3%, except for 2001, when the percentage was 1.2%. The huge surge in homes without TVs proves that companies making TV content can't ignore that viewers are turning to other screens, such as computers and mobile devices, ... The survey also shows...
