Jimmy Fallon Imagines a (Terrifying) World With a Donald Trump-Owned News Network

23 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Are you sick of the dishonest liberal media constantly spreading fake news? Do you cringe at the thought of any fact that isn't an "alternative" one that suits your beliefs? Would you prefer to hear about imaginary terror attacks in Sweden rather than the current refugee crisis? Then Trump News Network is probably for you! Like Alec Baldwin on SNL, Jimmy Fallon is choosing to deal with the everyday absurdity of our nation's president with humor (a welcome change from humanizing a man who brags about sexual assault). His skit on The Tonight Show on Tuesday, though funny, feels all too real as he imagines a world with a Trump-owned news network. "It's the only news network that's 100 percent fair and 112 percent factual," he jokes, before warning everyone that a Godzilla attack on Finland is imminent.

Tree Crashes Through Ireland Baldwin’s Driveway As Storm Rages Through California

17 February 2017 8:49 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A tree smashed through Ireland Baldwin’s driveway as a storm coursed through California on Friday.

Baldwin, 21, posted a picture of the damage, writing, “so this is my drive way…. anyone expecting me to get anywhere this weekend it’s not happening! thanks for understanding xo.”

The model — who is the only daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger — later posted a video, showing the extent of the damage done to her driveway.

“Completely stuck in my house until this figured out!” she wrote in the caption. “guys can’t come out until it stops raining! we are stuck in »

Hillary Clinton and Kate McKinnon Reportedly Spotted Having Dinner in NYC

17 February 2017 2:44 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

After laying low since November's presidential election, Hillary Clinton might be back -- in a big way.

The 69-year-old politician was seen having dinner with Saturday Night Live actress Kate McKinnon in New York City on Wednesday, Page Six reports.

According to the outlet, Clinton and McKinnon, accompanied by SNL writer Sarah Schneider, "seemed very nice and friendly and had a quiet dinner" at Orso.

We can't help but hope that the dinner means Clinton is returning for another SNL cameo when the show returns on March 4. McKinnon famously impersonated the former presidential candidate during the recent campaign season, and in 2015, the Hillarys came face to face for a hilarious "Bar Talk" sketch.

Trump Lashes Out at Media in ‘Unhinged’ Press Conference: Alec Baldwin and More Stars React

16 February 2017 12:47 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Celebrities including J.K. Rowling, Alec Baldwin and Josh Gad are up in arms on Twitter after President Donald Trump held a combative, marathon White House press conference on Thursday in which he accused America’s news media of being “out of control.”

The president called the press conference to announce his new pick for labor secretary, Alexander Acosta, after his first pick, embattled fast-food executive Andrew Puzder, withdrew on Wednesday.

But the presser quickly went off the rails as Trump switched gears to vehemently defend his presidency and lash out at the “dishonest” press for publishing “fake news,” including about his Russia scandal. »

Ryan Murphy Reveals 'American Horror Story' Season 7 Will Be About 2016 Election

16 February 2017 12:50 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The 2016 presidential election is literally going to be a Horror Story. Ryan Murphy, creator of FX's popular show American Horror Story, dished that Season 7 will center around the politics of the past year.

“I don’t have a title, but the season that we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election that we just went through,” Murphy said on Wednesday’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. “I think that will be interesting for a lot of people.”

Host Andy Cohen asked if there will be a Donald Trump character, to which Murphy replied, “Maybe.”

The TV mogul didn’t mention any actor’s names when it came to playing the president, but Saturday Night Live regular Alec Baldwin recently alluded to playing Trump outside of the hit NBC sketch comedy show.

Magic Johnson Somehow Loses to Luke Wilson in ‘Tonight Show’ Beer Pong (Video)

14 February 2017 7:55 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Maybe you should have tried the baby hook, Magic. Luke Wilson, who didn’t even know which set of cups to shoot at, somehow beat an all-time NBA great in beer pong on Monday’s “Tonight Show.” Of course, the game had a bit of a twist, with the red plastic Solo cups sitting on constantly moving Roomba vacuums. Still, this was a shooting contest and Earvin “Magic” Johnson averaged almost 20 points per game across his illustrious pro hoops career. Perhaps the assist specialist should have just no-look passed ping-pong balls to his partner, Jimmy Fallon. Also Read: Alec Baldwin, »

A new satire must emerge – one that breaks out of the liberal bubble | Viv Groskop

We need a rebirth of political comedy: preaching to the converted about Trump and Brexit isn’t going to be enough

Melissa McCarthy’s Saturday Night Live impersonation of Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, has gone viral. And Alec Baldwin’s rendering of Donald Trump on the same Us show is so good that the president despises it, which was surely the goal. As Michael Moore noted: “Trump’s skin is so thin we can discombobulate him with satire.” So is the political comedy boom spreading to Britain? Private Eye’s sales are at their highest ever, and the comedian Bridget Christie is on a 35-date tour of Because You Demanded It, a show devoted to Brexit.

Dominican Newspaper Apologizes After Identifying Photo of Alec Baldwin In Costume as President Trump

13 February 2017 8:49 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Alec Baldwin‘s President Donald Trump impersonation has reached new heights.

A Dominican Republic newspaper has apologized after misidentifying the actor – who has portrayed the president on Saturday Night Live since fall of last year – as Trump in a recent edition.

El Nacional noted their mistake over the weekend, issuing an apology online on Saturday and in print on Sunday. “The situation went unnoticed by those who revised page 19,” the statement said.

The original article showed a photo of Baldwin next to an image of Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel. Underneath Baldwin’s photo, the caption read, “Donald Trump, »

Season 5 Finale Review: Renewed Dreams and Trashed Apartments

Love Her or Hate Her?

Love, love love. When we last left Hannah she was finally beginning to take responsibility for her own life rather than waiting for life to happen to her. The sixth season premiere continued that thread with Hannah’s Modern Love column making print. This is a character who spends a lot of time feeling sorry for herself, so it was positive to see her turn a terrible situation (her best friend dating her ex) into something positive. It was exactly the kind of momentum she needed to start figuring out her own life and stop lamenting all of the things she might eventually do. Of course this is Hannah we’re talking about, so she hit a snag in her new plan right away when she landed at surf camp on a new assignment, and let »

‘The Walking Dead’ Review: Rick Goes Recruiting in ‘Rock In The Road’

Mid-season Finale Review: ‘Hearts Still Beating’ Promises Excitement In 2017

Whose Episode Is It?

It’s a Ricketeer road trip! Rick’s inner circle (plus Jesus) head from community to community, trying to get everyone on board with their war against the Saviors, with mixed results. The good news is that “Rock In The Road” moves pretty briskly by “Walking Dead” standards (mercifully, the runtime is less than 90 minutes), there’s some fresh zombie action, and no Negan to be found (save for a brief radio message). It’s a welcome respite from the repetitive misery of the first half of the season. Plus, King Ezekiel is back! And the tiger!

Viva La Revolución

We open with Gregory roundly refusing to join Rick’s rebellion, and also refusing to honor the terms of Hilltop’s initial agreement with Alexandria, since Alexandria didn’t manage to wipe out the Saviors as promised. »

‘Homeland’ Review: After Priming the Political Powder Keg, The Switch (Finally) Flipped on Season 6

12 February 2017 6:50 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review of “Homeland” Season 6, Episode 4, “A Flash of Light,” contains spoilers.]

Immediate Reaction

“No one gets out.” That’s what Sekou’s friend said after the Muslim-American protester was set free without explanation by the FBI. Sekou took offense at the time, knowing his own innocence, but his friend’s words turned out to be tragically prophetic, as the video-making self-righteous objector was (likely) killed in an explosion at the end of Episode 4, “A Flash of Light.”

Though we saw it coming as soon as he climbed into one of the vans Quinn photographed the night before, said knowledge did nothing to lessen the impact. The symbolism alone is enough to tear you up inside, as the implied murder of a Muslim-American by the U.S. government hits a little too close to home while foreign relations remain strained (to say the least) in our current political climate.

But the episode as a whole felt focused, lean, and emotionally honest. From »

Watch all the best clips as comedic war against Putin and Trump continues on SNL

12 February 2017 10:31 AM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Last night’s Saturday Night Live saw Beck Bennett roll out his shirtless macho Vladimir Putin impression — referring to Alec Baldwin’s President Donald Trump as his “little American Happy Meal”. The People’s Court segment also featured Ninth Circuit Court judges played by Kyle Mooney, Vanessa Bayer, and Pete Davidson. This marked the 17th appearance of Baldwin serving as host, and as his impression of  Trump is so ratings worthy we will likely see him on every SNL until the Donald is put to pasture. Another brilliant segment was the cold open with Sean Spicer (Melissa McCarthy) and a hilariously creepy...read more »
