  • Late-Night, Scripted Shows Go Dark After Hollywood Writers Strike

    Rolling Stone ^ | 5/2/23 | Larisha Paul
    It’s never been funny to tell the same joke twice. If the material on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live! wasn’t already stale by the time it left the host’s mouths, it certainly will be when those same episodes are looped back into rotation as production on the late-night circuit is halted following the initiation of a strike among movie and television writers. Late-night TV took the first hit when the strike was announced on Monday evening. The Writers Guild of America West unveiled plans to go forward with the strike after the threat of doing...

  • John Oliver is way too focused on 'hope and joy' for trans kids to care about the scientific and medical reality

    For some ungodly reason, John Oliver has an audience. As a comedian, that’s not really all that surprising. But his biggest audience these days seems to be people who are looking to him for news and information about how the world works, and that’s pretty mind-blowing. It’s actually disturbing, if you really stop and think about it, because he’s actively misinforming/disinforming his audience. Whether it’s because he himself is misinformed, or it’s because he’s comfortable just lying to people’s faces, it’s not something that should be celebrated. But it is being celebrated, much like radical trans activism. Which, incidentally, Oliver...
  • ‘Last Week Tonight’: John Oliver Shares Frustration Over ‘Key Mistakes’ In Managing Monkeypox Outbreak

    Deadline ^ | 8/7/22 | Armando Tinoco
    However, Oliver then questioned if the delays in fixing the problems had anything to do with “who’s been getting hit the hardest.” “You have to believe that if monkeypox was spreading largely through heterosexual sex things would be drastically different,” Oliver said. “It is not homophobic to acknowledge who is currently most affected, which is gay and bisexual men, sex workers, and people who participate in sex with multiple partners. What is homophobic is when you blame or shame the people who are suffering or when you decide you don’t need to care about this because you don’t see their...

    John Oliver on Sunday pointed out that housing is now “the thing a 16-year-old TikTok millionaire can afford and you can’t.” (Watch the video below.) On “Last Week Tonight” the host took aim at skyrocketing rents and some of the greedy attitudes behind them.

    Left-wing HBO host John Oliver has dismissed calls for sending more police into schools following the deadly school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, saying that the solution is more gun control. In Sunday’s episode of HBO’s Last Week Tonight, John Oliver launched an anti-police rant and cited a study claiming that a police presence in schools could even motivate shooters to come more heavily armed.

    During Sunday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” host John Oliver took a shot at Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R), who signed legislation into law earlier this year prohibiting doctors from performing gender-reassignment surgeries and prescribing puberty blockers and hormones to minors. Oliver lashed out at Ivey, asserting that Alabamians deserved “a lot better” than Ivey as governor. "Y’all — am I saying that right? Y’all? I don’t think I can carry that off. You are important. I can’t imagine trying to build self-esteem in childhood as your own government attempts to undermine your very existence. But you should know...

    HBO’s host John Oliver launched a vitriolic and profanity-laced attack on Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) over the state’s recently passed Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act, which makes it a felony to conduct surgery or provide puberty blockers and other hormone treatments to children under the age of 19.
  • John Oliver: Disney Should Pay More Taxes but Not Because of ‘*******’ DeSantis

    Breitbart ^ | 05/02/2022 | David NG
    HBO’s Last Week Tonight host John Oliver said he’s pleased at the prospect of Disney paying more taxes in Florida but doesn’t like the fact that it was Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) who successfully brought down the hammer on the company. Oliver called DeSantis a “right-wing *******” and falsely accused the governor of being “scared” of gay people, presumably because of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law, which prohibits the teaching of sexuality and gender ideology to children in kindergarten through third grade.

    Jimmy Kimmel says the “show must not go on” after testing positive for the coronavirus in a breakthrough case. “Our daughter brought us COVID (even though we specifically asked her not to),” the ABC late-night TV host wrote to his nearly 12 million Twitter followers on Monday. Kimmel, 54, said that his family was “feeling fine” and that he was “double vaxxed and boosted.”

    GREG Gutfeld has accidently leaked the return of his late-night Fox News talk show after being caught out by news anchor Bret Baier. The TV host appeared on Fox News on Thursday as he revealed that the show would return to screens on Monday, March 14. In a clip, which has since been shared on Twitter, Greg was asked when Gutfeld was returning. “Monday,” he replied swiftly, before adding, “I'm not supposed to say that!" On Friday, Greg followed the announcement with an Instagram post of two canoes situated by a boating lake. He wrote: “My next 3 days before...

    Breitbart ^ | 06/25/2021 | John Nolte
    The far-left, late-night talk shows are suffering some serious ratings losses, which probably has more than a little to do with President Trump leaving office. As you read through the numbers below, keep this number in mind: 6.3 million. During the 1986-87 television season, with nearly 100 million fewer people in the country, that was the number of viewers Johnny Carson averaged throughout the entire 1986-87 television season.
  • Babylon Bee editor says late-night hosts have become 'self-righteous zealots' in thrall to a woke cancel culture he dubs a 'leftist religion' and only want to 'lecture the crowd on their moral values'

    The editor-in-chief of the Babylon Bee had some harsh words for late-night comedians who he says have become unfunny 'self-righteous zealots' in thrall to a 'leftist religion'. 'Over the last decade, late-night hosts across the board began to lay aside their relatable, everyman's brand of comedy and pivot toward lecturing the crowd on their moral values,' wrote editor Kyle Mann in a scathing column for the National Review. 'They went from chasing laughter — no matter who the butt of the joke may have been — to chasing applause. The result has been anything but funny,' he added.

    Look, everyone in the country knows that Joe Biden has some form of “dementia.” They know, we know, and they know that we know, and we know that they know. Everyone knows. So, sitting around pretending like it’s not actually happening is pretty silly at this point. For heaven’s sake, other countries are calling it out, and they must think our media and celebrities are mindless zombies to just sit back and ignore it or call this madness a “childhood stutter.” Besides, Jimmy probably sees the comedy gold in covering Joe. However, the truth is, while some stuff is funny,...

    Virtually all of the late night ‘entertainment’ shows are now voices for the radical left. These shows used to exist for the enjoyment of all Americans, but now they parrot DNC talking points, demean traditional American beliefs, and mock anything to the right of Bernie Sanders.They really enjoyed bashing Trump nightly, but now that he is gone they’re making up for it with other topics.A recent episode of ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ targeted the nation’s founders.Brian Flood reports at FOX News:Stephen Colbert’s writer calls for reparations, calls Founding Fathers slave-owning ‘douche nozzles’“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” writer...

    Jenny Hagel, a writer for Late Night with Seth Meyers who is both gay and Catholic, issued a strong denunciation of Pope Francis‘ homophobia last night. In response to the pope reiterating Catholic doctrine that says gay priests must be celibate (or be kicked out of the priesthood), an idea that suggests there’s something intrinsically wrong with gay people, Hagel called out anyone who still sees the pope as a good guy. "The press dubbed him “Cool Pope.” But here’s the thing: This guy’s not cool. This guy’s homophobic… We should all care about this because the pope is a...
  • Trump-era politics creates turmoil, firings and, sometimes, great ratings for entertainers

    Washington Post ^ | August 31, 2013 | Steven Zeitchik
    [snip] A year and a half into the Trump presidency, entertainment companies are grappling with a fan base that is splintering into political factions as never before. Whether in regard to explicitly political entertainment or the rapidly multiplying number of entertainers who talk about politics, Americans appear to be increasingly figuring ideology into their Hollywood ­choices. Some fans, to be sure, have long been drawn to or repelled by the occasional outspoken celebrity — Jane Fonda for her antiwar views, for example. But fans are now judging a much wider range of entertainment and entertainers for the way those people...

    For the last time in 2017, Seth Meyers used a monologue on the Thursday, December 21, edition of his NBC Late Night program to slam President Donald Trump regarding the tax-cut bill that Republicans in Congress passed earlier this week. Not surprisingly, the liberal comedian began his “A Closer Look” segment by claiming: “Republicans spent yesterday gleefully celebrating their tax plan and lavishing praise on President Trump, with Trump even going so far as to claim that he also repealed ObamaCare.” The Late Night host first mocked Trump’s assertion that he might have coined the term “tax cuts” instead of...

    ABC’s newest entertainer turned activist isn’t backing down, after intense criticism for his recent turns at blaming the right for people dying in a shooting massacre and overturning ObamaCare. Jimmy Kimmel is now actively seeking out media coverage of his left-wing activism, outside of what he does on his late night comedy show. In a response to an artist-critic in Hollywood, (of all places,) Kimmel took a photo of himself giving the finger to the artist, with a message calling for support for the left-wing gun grabbing group Everytown for Gun Safety. Kimmel sent the provocative photo to entertainment media...
