    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...

    Friendly Atheist (Patheos) ^ | December 11, 2018 | Hemant Mehta
    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...
  • Seth Meyers Hammers Trump’s Self-Congratulation: ‘You Passed One Bill'

    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...
  • Media Darling Jimmy Kimmel Says [bleep] You’ to Critics, Fundraises for Left-Wing Everytown

    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...

    This time targeting the increasingly-insufferable Jimmy Kimmel, a conservative street artist known for edgy, spontaneous work is at it again. Appearing on Los Angeles benches and telephone poles this morning were the latest pieces by “Sabo”, an otherwise-anonymous provocateur with a knack for generating headlines. With the ABC late night host increasingly moving toward political sermons and seemingly away from comedy, he presents a rich target for critics. Since the massacre in Las Vegas Sunday night, Kimmel has become particularly strident, lecturing the audience about gun control and other issues.

    Trump hatred drives ratings. But journalists, having stooped so low as to be indistinguishable from third-rate, hostile, buffoonish comedians like Maher and Colbert The anti-Trump venom from the mainstream media has become so virulent that broadcasters and reporters alike risk becoming little more than extensions of the late-night “comedic” lineup, bashing the President without regard for truth or factual accuracy. And above all, most of these journalists realize, and sometimes admit, that they want to help the Democrats win the next election. The comparison between late night show hosts and the news media becomes stark when one compares Joy Reid’s...

    In about 90 minutes, Donald Trump will be devastating SeeBS idiot Stephen Colbert. Normally the little weasel's "Late Show" is must-not-watch-teevee but tonight's offering ought to be great as Mr. Trump plays 3-dimensional chess against a leftist peanut brain. Colbert is still mewing and puking from Ted Cruz's jujitsu moves on him last night. Senator Cruz brought a gun to a knife fight but all Colbert had was a spork. This thread ought to be as good of a place as any for FReepers to comment on the unraveling of an unfunny, unintelligent, unhinged leftist by a true zen master,...

    Stephen Colbert won his first outing as CBS’s new late-night host, as 6.6 million viewers tuned in late Tuesday night to watch “The Late Show.” Mr. Colbert’s debut had about 3.6 million more viewers than Jimmy Fallon’s “The Tonight Show” and about 4.8 million more viewers than ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Mr. Colbert also led in the 18-to-49-year-old demographic key to advertisers, drawing 1.4 million viewers compared with Mr. Fallon’s 900,000 and Mr. Kimmel’s 400,000. CBS hopes that he can retain many of the younger viewers who watched his Comedy Central political satire show, “The Colbert Report.” Still, Mr. Colbert’s...
  • Must-See Late Night Clip: Jimmy Fallon Explains How He Almost Lost His Finger

    When Jimmy Fallon abruptly canceled his last new Tonight Show episode before a two-week break last month due to an unexplained injury to his hand, details were sketchy at first. Well, last night, he returned to the show with his left hand in a cast and spent several minutes telling his audience exactly how close he came to losing his finger after he tripped and fell on a rug in his home and caught his wedding ring on the counter as he went down. Whatever you do, don’t Google “ring avulsion.” Watch video below, via NBC:
  • NBC's Seth Meyers Defends Hillary From 'Clinton Cash' Allegations

    On the Thursday edition of NBC’s Late Night, host Seth Meyers jumped aboard the Clinton campaign’s push to discredit the upcoming book Clinton Cash by Peter Schweizer by mocking Schweizer’s background, previous book titles, and chalking the book up to be nothing more than the latest work from “the cottage industry of anti-Clinton books that come out every year.” Dubbed the topic of the latest “A Closer Look” segment, Meyers introducted the book and that it’s been mentioned in the news before making a Game of Thrones reference to go after the GOP: “Now, when a new anti-Clinton book comes...

    The February announcement that Arsenio Hall’s syndicated late-night show would return for a second season turned out to be both premature and mistaken. CBS Television Distribution, which owns the show with Tribune Media, has announced a cancellation because of a ratings decline among the viewers most advertisers pay for in late night, people between the ages of 18 and 49.
