19 August 2017 9:28 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

"I wanted to change as a performer," Stephen Colbert says as we sit down in the offices of CBS' The Late Show, high above the Ed Sullivan Theater in Midtown Manhattan, on a "Pizza Tuesday" — a Tuesday when Colbert's staff is treated to pizza because The Late Show topped the previous week's ratings — and begin discussing why he agreed to say goodbye to "Stephen Colbert," a character he perfected over 20 years on Comedy Central's The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, in order to succeed David Letterman as the host of the Tiffany Network's late-night centerpiece.

Stephen Colbert Updates Steve Bannon’s Résumé: Skills Include “Dissolving Enemies In Bathtub”

18 August 2017 12:39 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show has spared some time and effort for the newly unemployed Steve Bannon. In a new Late Show video, Bannon’s résumé gets a thorough update, with his skills amended to include Microsoft Excel and “Dissolving enemies in bathtub” (watch the video below). Employment history? Seems Bannon was Satan’s intern while working at the 9th Circle of Hell, where his duties were “Tormenting sinners by forcing them to listen to my political ramblings.” And… »

Jon Stewart Takes Aim at Donald Trump and White Supremacists During Surprise Stand-Up Appearance With Dave Chappelle

18 August 2017 9:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jon Stewart picked a hell of a time to end his tenure as host of “The Daily Show.” Several others have stepped up to fill the void left by his absence — that two of them, Stephen Colbert and Samantha Bee, first came to attention on his show is no coincidence — but no one does it quite like Stewart did.

He reminded everyone in attendance at Dave Chappelle’s show at Radio City Music Hall of that just last night, chiming in on Charlottesville and Donald Trump.

Like just about everyone besides Trump himself, Stewart was aghast at the notion that “many sides” were to blame for last weekend’s violence. “To the presence of two sides? Motherfucker? There are two sides? Motherfucker? Two sides? Two sides!” he exclaimed. “And I believe they are called the Allied powers and the Axis powers. »

Late-night hosts on Trump: 'He feels regret as often as he feels Melania’s touch'

Comics, including Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers, addressed the terror attack in Barcelona, and the continued fallout from Trump’s comments on Charlottesville

Late-night hosts on Thursday addressed the terror attack in Barcelona, president Trump’s response to it, and his aides’ mounting frustrations at his response to last weekend’s events in Charlottesville.

“I want to take a moment to send our thoughts to the people of Barcelona, Spain, who suffered a horrific attack today,” Stephen Colbert began. “A vehicle drove into a crowd in that city, killing at least 12 people and injuring dozens more. This is a heartbreaking reminder that evil is real and the United States is not alone in fighting it.”

Donald Trump’s Presidency Yields Boom in Satirical Comedy TV Series, Apps

17 August 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Donald Trump’s accidental jobs-creation program? Generating a huuuuge windfall for comedy writers, producers and digital entrepreneurs.

To be sure, it’s hard to find humor in the current crisis Trump has brought on himself — after defending the white nationalists who fomented a violent rally in Charlottesville, Va., and saying it’s “foolish” to remove “beautiful statues and monuments” of Confederate generals.

But overall, his epically turbulent presidency and egomaniacal personality have produced a flood of TV and digital satire, including a wave of apps whose entire point is to make fun of him.

American politics has always been good for the comedy business, dating back to George Washington and continuing on through the rise of political cartoons in the 19th century to Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.” However, experts say Trump is unique among modern presidents in yielding a bounty of satirical content, while the internet has made it possible for wags to boot up »

Ellie Kemper and Michael Koman Decide to Raise Their Son Catholic, Not Jewish

17 August 2017 8:49 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Ellie Kemper and Michael Koman had a big decision to make when it came to raising their 1-year-old son, James. You see, Kemper was raised Catholic, while Koman was raised Jewish, and therefore, they had to meet on common grounds when it came to their first child together. Well, the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star joined The Late Show Wednesday night and dished to Stephen Colbert that they decided to go the Catholic route...though she's not sure if she received a sign from the "higher ups" that perhaps she made the wrong choice. Here's what happened... "He got baptized sort of late, like in May, he was 10 months old," Kemper began. "I was actually very nervous when the »

Colbert to Trump: 'You Showed Us Who You Were' After Press Conference

17 August 2017 6:41 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Stephen Colbert shredded President Trump on The Late Show on Wednesday after the President offered tacit support for white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and Ku Klux Klan members during what Colbert described as a "Kamikaze press conference" in New York City earlier this week. 

"There is only one thing I no longer have any doubt about," Colbert said, directly addressing the President. "You showed us who you were. Everywhere in this country, people were horrified. North, South, Republican, Democrat, top, bottom, sweet, sour."

The Late Show host repeatedly compared President Trump to Hitler. »

More Ben Affleck done with Batman talk, Daniel Craig back as Bond, Infinity War “biggest movie” ever made and more – Daily News Roundup

Affleck Speak

Prior to San Diego Comic Con, there was a rumour that Ben Affleck would be stepping down as The Dark Knight, promoting the star himself to respond and say he’s staying on with DC as Batman. Well, his brother Casey Affleck has had a few words about the subject – albeit in a joking manner. ““I thought he was an Ok Batman,” he said jokingly. “No, I thought he was great. He was great. He’s a hero, so he had something to channel and work with there. But he’s not going to do that movie, I don’t think. Sorry to say. Is that breaking news? Because I was just kind of making that up, I don’t know.” Read more here.

Late Night TV vs. Donald Trump: 8 Hosts Ranked, From Most to Least Critical

16 August 2017 1:34 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When a sitting President of the United States sides with Nazis, jokes just don’t cut it anymore.

After the pro-Nazi rallies in Charlottesville – which led to three deaths last weekend – and President Donald Trump’s horrifying statements in response to the rise of white nationalist groups in America, late night talk shows are trying out a new tone.

Hosts are jumping in and taking on a sitting U.S. president like they’ve never done before. There’s still room for jokes as the hosts convey their views – but as things turn serious, they’re taking a stand and using their voice to the fight against tyranny.

FCC Censorship Rules Vary for Broadcast, Cable, and Streaming

16 August 2017 10:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s about halfway through the fifth season of “Orange Is the New Black” when Elizabeth Rodriguez’s recently un-incarcerated, always opinionated Aleida sums up the plight of female-forward broadcast television writers everywhere with one simple, well-crafted exchange.

“Can I say ‘bitches?’” she asks a local newscaster and then, when she gets the green light, immediately and involuntarily exclaims, “s—.” The journalist, played by Thea McCartan, responds she can’t say that, to which Aleida replies, “What kind of f—ing bulls— rule is that?”

Although the writers may have simply been trying to show that Aleida was not as media savvy as she was street smart in this episode, which was written by co-exec producer Lauren Morelli, “in a lot of ways, we’re all like Aleida,” says writer-producer Carolina Paiz.

After years of working on broadcast TV, Paiz understands Aleida’s frustrations. On network shows, she notes, “We’re constantly censoring or told to self-censor »

LeBron James Says Trump ‘Made Hate Fashionable Again’ as Stars React to President’s Latest Charlottesville Remarks

16 August 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The immediate backlash President Trump faced on Tuesday only intensified overnight after he doubled down on his assertion that “both sides” were to blame for deadly violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“There are two sides to a story,” Trump insisted on Tuesday, echoing the widely denounced comments he made Saturday, as the violence was unfolding in Virginia.

There were “a lot of bad people in the other group too,” he added in reference to the anti-racist protesters demonstrating against the rally, one of whom, 32-year-old Heather Heyer, was killed when a driver rammed his car into a group of the counter-protesters. »

Comics including Colbert and Kimmel addressed Trump’s repeated claim that white nationalists and counter-protesters were to blame in Charlottesville

Late-night hosts addressed Donald Trump’s erratic press conference at Trump Tower on Tuesday, where he equivocated again when it came to condemning the white supremacists and neo-Nazis who gathered in Charlottesville, while doubling down on his initial statement, made Saturday, that the counter-protesters were also to blame.

“You might remember it took Donald Trump two days to condemn the white nationalists and the neo-Nazis who held that rally down in Charlottesville,” Stephen Colbert began. “But even though many criticized how long it took, the president knew the right thing was to make a statement on Monday to be clear about who was to blame, and then move on to the people’s business.
