    WASHINGTON, D.C.—Joe Biden made a novel suggestion for cops and people who want to defend themselves against violent criminals: making them slip on a banana peel. "Look, Jack, if a criminal is running toward you, you don't have to shoot them," Biden said at last night's town hall on ABC. "All you have to do is pull out your trusty banana peel, throw it on the ground, and they'll slip. It's safe, humane, and hilarious." "Back in my day, cops didn't even have guns. They just dropped anvils on bad guys, littered rakes around them so they'd get smacked in...

    HAMILTON, Ohio (KAKE) - An Ohio sheriff is drawing national attention for a video in which he offered to help pay transportation cost for celebrities who said they'd leave the country if Donald Trump is re-elected president. Sheriff Richard K. Jones, starting Monday with a pair of social media posts, went viral again. A release posted to Facebook said Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones "would like to extend an invitation to put money towards a one-way ticket for any celebrity that would like to leave the country this time around if President Trump is re-elected.” Among the recent celebrities...

    Joe Buck’s necessities for the next two weeks: one giant suitcase, two garment bags, plenty of room service and at least nine novel coronavirus tests. That’s the price of entry for the unusual stretch he is in, calling what could be 13 baseball games and four football games in 18 days. As the sports schedule has been scrambled this fall by the pandemic, Buck, the lead play-by-play announcer for Fox Sports’s baseball and football coverage, has seen his itinerary warped, too. Image without a caption “The silver lining in all of this, at least in my life, is baseball is...

    In the latest TV ratings, Fox’s coverage of the World Series opener between the Dodgers and Rays averaged 7.2 million total viewers and a Tuesday-topping 1.8 demo rating — though down sharply from the preliminary numbers (11.6 mil/2.9) for last year’s Nationals/Astros Game 1. Check back later for the final tally! NBC | The Voice (7.5 mil/1.0) was down a tick from Monday’s premiere, but teed up Transplant for Stateside highs of 4.3 mil/0.6. ABC | The Bachelorette (4.1 mil.1.1) slipped about 20 percent from last week. Leading out of that, a Supermarket Sweeeeeeep! encore did 1.8 mil and a...
  • ‘My Brother’: Robert Downey Jr. And Others Rally To Defend Chris Pratt

    Actor Robert Downey Jr. joined several colleagues from the Marvel Comics Universe in defending fellow cast member Chris Pratt after he was attacked on social media. Pratt, who plays Peter Quill (Star Lord) in the “Guardians of the Galaxy” films, was voted “the worst Chris in Hollywood” after his name was noticeably absent from a political fundraiser that included several of his “Avengers” costars. (RELATED: ‘It Could Be Dangerous’: Dean Cain Weighs In On Attacks Against Chris Pratt’s Gadsden Flag Shirt) Jezebel even published an article “outing” Pratt as a Republican — despite acknowledging that he has never officially declared...

    Fans of the blockbuster movie series “The Avengers” can virtually hang out with six of the stars Tuesday if they contribute to Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. But it’s an actor who’s not attending who’s getting most of the attention on Twitter — and much of it is hate. Chris Pratt, known for his roles in “Guardians of the Galaxy” as well as “Parks and Rec,” was blasted on the social media platform by people who said his conspicuous absence was evidence of his secret support of President Donald Trump. From there, the conversation devolved into criticism of Pratt’s Christian faith...

    Disney has attacked California Governor Newsom for his 'arbitrary' COVID guidelines that will keep Disneyland 'shuttered for the foreseeable future', after the state announced further delays to reopening large theme parks Tuesday. Disneyland Resort's President Ken Potrock blasted state officials in a statement Tuesday saying the reopening guidelines are 'unworkable' and will force 'thousands more people out of work'. The outrage came after the state released protocols for reopening California theme parks Tuesday, revealing it will still be several weeks before Disneyland in Anaheim, California, can start welcoming guests back to the so-called 'Happiest Place on Earth'. Tensions have been...
  • For the first time since 1965, the Peanuts holiday specials are not scheduled to air on broadcast TV

    The first time It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown aired on television, it preempted My Three Sons. As in, an original episode of My Three Sons. The date was October 27, 1966, and Douglas family fans had just seen Yvonne Craig play a meter maid the previous week. Instead, CBS viewers got the Peanuts crew. The idea of a Peanuts holiday special, and a Peanuts cartoon in general, was still relatively novel. Great Pumpkin was just the third animated special from the mind of Charles Schulz. A Charlie Brown Christmas has premiered one year earlier. The Christmas special was so...

    I just finished watching the Vice News documentary on Trump and his relationship with the press and it was wonderful, probably not for any of the reasons the film makers hoped for. Watching the press pointing fingers of blame at each other and whining about Trump's ability to play them like a fiddle was very satisfying. It's out there on the Internet and worth a look if you can find it.

Should President Trump be worried? The answer is no. Biden's campaign event was on ABC "News". Trump's hour-long town hall was aired on NBC, MSNBC and CNBC. Who mainly watches ABC, NBC, MSNBC and CNBC? Democrats and people who don't realize these "news" outlets are mainly broadcast channels for the Democratic...
