    ABC’s legal analyst Sunny Hostin said Tuesday on ABC’s “The View” that comedian Dave Chappelle getting attacked on stage during the “Netflix Is A Joke Fest” was in part due to former President Donald Trump unleashing “incivility.” Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “What do you think is happening? It’s happening on airplanes. It’s happening on street corners. People are just running up. I mean, the Hollywood Bowl. He just ran up on there.” Co-host Joy Behar said, “Things that can contribute to what’s going on. The pandemic, the opioid crisis, the fact that Trump was out there saying things like, ‘just...
  • Russian ‘Illegals’ Sleeper Agent Dies Aged 79 (Inspired 'Te Americans' TV Show)

    04/21/2022 9:45:18 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 8 replies
    Former Russian spy and sleeper agent Mikhail Vasenkov has died at the age of 79, Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) announced Wednesday. Vasenkov was one of 10 undercover agents arrested in the United States in 2010, after being accused of working for an underground network of spies dubbed the “illegals” — a story that became the basis for hit U.S. television series “The Americans.” Vasenkov and his fellow agents posed as ordinary Americans for more than a decade, building contacts with academics, industrialists and policymakers to gain intelligence. The network, which included self-styled New York socialite Anna Chapman, was eventually...

    Astute businesswoman Suzanne Somers revealed in a new interview that her ThighMaster has earned her a massive chunk of change over the years. “Well, I grew up poor, and I live a good life,” the “Three’s Company” alum, 75, coyly told hosts Dax Holt and Adam Glyn on the “Hollywood Raw” podcast Wednesday. Somers then provided more exact figures, sharing, “It’s $19.95 x 10 million [products sold], so you kind of do the math, and we’re probably at 15 million now.”
  • Russia TV Channel Says 'No to War' as Staff Walk Out of Studio Live On-Air

    Russian staff at independent television channel TV Rain (Dozhd) ended their final broadcast by walking out of the studio in a silent protest live on-air after being ordered to close by authorities due to the broadcaster's coverage of Moscow's invasion of Ukraine. The leading independent broadcaster was blocked by Russia's telecommunications regulator earlier this week following pressure over its coverage of the Ukraine crisis. Russian authorities have prohibited media from calling President Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine a "war"—state-run media outlets adopt the term "special military operation." The Russian parliament passed a law on Friday that criminalizes the distribution of...

    TV Rain, a youth-focused Russian TV station often critical of the Kremlin, was shut down by state authorities on Thursday, but its staff got in one last full newscast that ended in a symbolic protest. At the end of the night’s report, the staff gathered around the news desk. The anchors were overhead saying “no war” as everyone walked off together. The broadcast image of the empty studio was replaced by the TV station’s logo and a message asking for donations before the telecast cut to old footage from a performance of Tchaikovsky’s ballet Swan Lake. The Swan Lake bit...

    A spectator at the Daytona 500 race in Florida said "f*** Joe Biden" live on air while being interviewed by a television news crew. During a live broadcast of the NASCAR Cup Series motor race in Daytona Beach on Sunday, a Fox 35 Orlando reporter approached a man in the stand by the track and asked him what he was going to say on the finish line. "What do you think I'm gonna say, I'm gonna say f**k Joe Biden," the unidentified man replied. The shocked reporter said "oh no no no, we're not doing that" before walking away to...

    The 78-year-old comedian finally addressed claims that he was very difficult to work with on the sets of “Saturday Night Live” and the TV series “Community.” In an interview with “CBS Sunday Morning,” Chase explained how it didn’t bother him when he heard that his former co-stars had bad experiences working with him. “I guess you’d have to ask them. I don’t give a crap!” he laughed. “I am who I am. And I like where — who I am. I don’t care,” he continued. “And it’s part of me that I don’t care. And I’ve thought about that a...

    A woman who jumped to her death from a skyscraper in New York City on Sunday morning has been identified as former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst. Kryst, 30, was a lawyer and also worked as a correspondent for the entertainment show Extra. She won the Miss USA pageant in 2019. Kryst, who had an apartment on the ninth floor of the building, leaped from the Midtown high-rise around 7:15am and was found dead on the sidewalk beneath the 60-story hi-rise. She had last been seen on one of the building's terrace, up on the 29th-floor.
  • 5 People that are Probably Time Lords

    Even though the Time Lords have been destroyed (twice now), there’s always a chance more Time Lords exist elsewhere in the universe still. We know about the Doctor and the Master, it’s also possible the Hermit, the Curator, the Monk, and Jenny are still about, as they’ve been known to be off-world. But even though the population of a whole species is likely down to single digits, that won’t stop fans from creating head-canons about other potential Time Lords. Mary Poppins I’ve written about this before, but Disney’s beloved Mary Poppins is remarkably similar to the Eleventh Doctor in many...

    A homeless man is charged with burglary for trying to steal a massive flat-screen television from the downtown Seattle Target. Staff say it was the 22nd time he stole from the store in the past 3 months. The entire alleged incident was caught on surveillance footage obtained by the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH. And thanks to a lenient judge, the man was released on his own personal recognizance. John Ray Lomack is a prolific offender who, according to the King County Prosecutor’s Office, has an extensive criminal history. A King County prosecutor argued that Lomack should be held on...

    Yes, it’s Throwback Thursday. When you are as old as I am 2004 doesn’t sound like much of a throwback at first…until you consider it was nearly 18 years ago. That’s the year Boston Legal debuted. I had already sworn off network TV at that point so I missed it, although friends kept telling me it was really good. I stumbled across a few episodes somewhere a couple years back and mentally put it on my watch list and finally got around to it last summer when it popped up on Prime. Disappointingly it included commercials that can’t be skipped...

    I admit I’m a Carrie Bradshaw fan. I was in my twenties in 1998 and living in Chicago when Sex and the City debuted on HBO. It captured, pretty accurately, what life was like in a big city when you’re young and beautiful. What was never accurate was the amount of money Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda had to play with; that was always a fantasy. But the weird encounters with guys who would do stupid things like break up with you on a post-it-note or ask you to do sexually bizarre things you would never ever consider, frienemies who...
  • ‘Doctor Who’ Is Dead, But Perhaps Not For Long

    The Federalist ^ | December 10, 2021 | Peter Pischke
    The BBC and wokeness killed the much-loved sci-fi TV series. The writer who last revived ‘Doctor Who’ is likely the only one who can save it now. “Doctor Who” is dead. Ratings haven’t been this low since the moribund 1980s. Fan interest is zilch, with little engagement on social media. The show just finished its 13th series, and the few who watched could only yawn. The doctor is on life support thanks to the BBC’s incessant diversity mandates, executive producer Chris Chibnall retcons, and the lazy pomposity of the first female doctor, Jodie Whittaker. But there is hope. A familiar...
