  • NBC Execs Regret Paying Jimmy Fallon $80 Million Contract Extension As Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld Beats 'Tonight Show' In Ratings: Sources

    01/06/2023 10:23:19 PM PST · by DeathBeforeDishonor1 · 66 replies
    Hapless host Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show is losing the ratings war to FOX News rival Greg Gutfeld — and the TV flop’s sinking number has left NBC brass with buyer’s remorse, has learned. Nearly 19 months after the Peacock Network handed Fallon a whopping $80 million five-year contract extension, The Tonight Show is drawing under 1.3 million eyeballs — less than half the audience of upstart Gutfeld! But that number is even more shocking when compared to Fallon’s celebrated debut! The Saturday Night Live alum, 48, chalked up an impressive 11 million viewers when he first took over for...
  • Don Lemon Claims CNN Was Never Liberal, Insists New-Look Network Will ‘Hold People to Account’

    CNN anchor Don Lemon boldly asserted the network has never had a liberal stance — despite an ongoing push from top boss Chris Licht for more centrist coverage. The left-leaning Lemon, best known for his vocal criticism of prominent Republicans, made the dubious claim during an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Monday after the comedian nudged him to address CNN’s recent move toward nonpartisan coverage. “Word on the street is that you guys aren’t allowed to be liberal anymore. Is that the case?” Colbert asked. “I don’t think we ever were liberal,” Lemon replied. Lemon’s answer...

    On his “Late Show,” the funnyman accused Republican Michigan gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon of inventing a story about a Democratic voter who changed his party affiliation to the GOP due to his frustration about “pornographic” materials in libraries. But it turns out the supposedly fictitious man is very real. Khalil Othman, 41, a former Dearborn City Council candidate, came forward as the man Dixon had referred to at a debate against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Oct. 25, the Detroit Free Press reported. "To claim that I’m not here, I don’t exist, I’m not human, that’s absolute ignorance,” Othman told the...

    CBS The Late Show host Stephen Colbert was in full activist mode for his Wednesday show as he attacked Mehmet Oz on abortion and Tudor Dixon on sexually explicit material in school libraries. For good measure, he also opened the floor to The 1619 Project’s Nikole Hannah-Jones to attack conservatives generally. Oz was first Colbert’s first target, “Dr. Oz has had his problems running for Senate in Pennsylvania. For one thing, he lives in New Jersey. Also, he came out super anti-choice in the primary, and when asked about that last night, he accidentally said what he meant.” Colbert then...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) reacted to Elon Musk owning Twitter by saying that “one billionaire in a very dark room” could be making decisions about what people are seeing on the social media platform, “based on whatever is running around in the middle of his head.” Warren didn’t seem to share this concern about the leftists running Facebook and Google, who make decisions about what people see on the internet through extensive censorship operations. After being asked by The Late Show host Stephen Colbert to weigh in on Musk’s recent takeover of Twitter, Warren said, “I look at it this...

    Stephen Colbert returned to “The Late Show” Monday night after a bout of COVID-19 and jumped right back into the fray, suggesting Fox News host Tucker Carlson should probably be concerned that his “browser history matches that of a mass murderer.” First, the comedian expressed his sadness over the mass shooting in Buffalo, New York on Saturday that left 10 people dead, most of them Black. A white, 18-year-old male named Payton Gendron is accused of targeting the predominantly Black neighborhood in what authorities said was a hate crime. In online writings purportedly written by Gendron, he embraced the racist...

    A U.S. Attorney has dropped all charges against nine staffers of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert who were arrested last month for unlawful entry into the U.S. Capitol. Some are calling the move a double standard of justice. “After a comprehensive review of all of the evidence and the relevant legal authority, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia has determined that it cannot move forward with misdemeanor charges of unlawful entry against the nine individuals who were arrested on June 16, 2022 at the Longworth Office Building,” the U.S. Attorney’s office said in a statement. “The...

    The two-tiered ‘justice’ system strikes again.

    House Republicans have named the congressional aide to Rep. Jake Auchincloss, Massachusetts Democrat, who allowed TV’s Stephen Colbert’s comedy crew into one of the House office buildings after hours. Republicans said Tuesday that Auchincloss Chief of Staff Tim Hysom was responsible for letting seven producers and staffers of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” back into the House Longworth Building last week after U.S. Capitol Police directed the TV crew to leave the complex earlier in the day. Rep. Rodney Davis, Illinois Republican and ranking member of the House Administration Committee, said he is 100% sure Mr. Hysom is the...

    Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson accused CBS host Stephen Colbert’s production crew of committing “insurrection.” “Last night, producers from Stephen Colbert’s show on CBS committed insurrection at the United States Capitol,” Carlson said, referring to the producers’ unescorted entrance into a House office building authorized by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.). The comments were made in the midst of a series of public hearings by the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol. Thus far, the hearings have highlighted the injuries inflicted on police officers by the rioters who broke into the Capitol demanding that Congress stop...

    At least seven staffers who work for CBS News' "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" were arrested after allegedly entering a U.S. House of Representatives building, specifically the Longworth House Building, where they were not legally permitted to be, according to Fox News. They had been escorted out from January 6 select committee hearing because they did not have the proper press credentials, which is investigating the actions of people who were also not where they were legally allowed to be. Despite being escorted out, the seven people re-appeared that night after the Capitol complex was closed to the public....

    Given the chance to ask Philadelphia Health Commissioner Cheryl Bettigole anything about COVID-19 on Wednesday, one City Council member brought up late-night comedian Stephen Colbert. “They were like, making fun of us on his show,” said Councilmember Allan Domb, “which hurts my pride and everyone’s pride in this city.” Coronavirus Coverage Philadelphia was the butt of Colbert’s joke because it is alone among big American cities in bringing back an indoor masking requirement in response to rising COVID rates. Still, his ribbing was actually pretty mild. “Because it’s Philly, people can choose between surgical masks, KN95s, or full Gritty heads,”...

    An out-of-touch academic, writing a column for Bloomberg Opinion, demonstrated just how out of touch the country's elites are as inflation hits every sector of the country. Instead of hiding the mess, or better yet, just not printing it, Bloomberg Opinion tweeted its existence out with a handy tip sheet: (tweets at link) Inflation stings most if you earn less than $300K. Here's how to deal: ➡️ Take the bus ➡️ Don’t buy in bulk ➡️ Try lentils instead of meat ➡️ Nobody said this would be fun Which was about as amateur-hour as it gets on the age-old topic...

    An economics professor has a solution for the little people dealing with the country’s inflationary woes: Use mass transportation, eat more veggies instead of meat, and cut back on unnecessary care for your pets.In a op-ed, the New School’s Teresa Ghilarducci says these tips are a good idea for anyone making less than … $280,000 per year. “To deal with gas prices, it’s worth reconsidering public transportation if it’s an option where you live,” Ghilarducci says. After all, mass transport fares are up only 8 percent compared to 38 percent for gasoline. And don’t think about getting a new...

    A BLOOMBERG Opinion piece is getting backlash after a 'tone-deaf' tweet saying that inflation 'stings most' for those making under $300K a year. "Nobody said this would be fun," the controversial tweet by Bloomberg Opinion reads, sparking thousands of people to react to the March 13 article by Teresa Ghilarducci. Ghilarducci makes suggestions in the piece like pivoting to vegetables in order to avoid inflated meat prices, and taking the bus to avoid inflated gas prices. "I expect those most affected will adjust to inflation in the classic way by shifting away from relatively expensive items toward close substitutes." The...
