From Back to the Future's Biff to Donald Trump: how pop culture can make a president

1 hour ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Who are the on-screen precedents for the presidential class of 2016? For Hillary Clinton, it’s 24’s President Taylor, for Bernie Sanders, it’s Larry David and for Jeb Bush, it’s Gob in Arrested Development

Around the time of the 2008 presidential elections, a popular theory took hold that movies and TV shows had paved the way for a black president: Dennis Haysbert in 24, Chris Rock in Head of State, Morgan Freeman … well, just Morgan Freeman. Barack Obama would never have swept to victory if the nation hadn’t been conditioned by these groundbreaking portrayals, it was implied. But has pop culture been laying the ground for the next occupant of the White House? In this most unexpected of election years, the next president is likely to be different in some form: the first woman/Latino/billionaire/religious maniac – and whoever it turns out to be, you can bet the entertainment industry will take the credit. »

Early Ratings: Gop Debate on CBS Matches Last Week’s as Highest of 2016

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Early numbers are in, and Saturday’s contentious Gop debate from South Carolina has drawn another impressive audience, perhaps the largest of the seven debates so far this year.

In Nielsen’s metered-markets, the Republican presidential primary debate averaged a 9.3 overnight household rating — matching last week’s score for a Gop debate on ABC.

In preliminary affiliate-based national estimates, last night’s debate averaged a 1.9 rating/7 share in adults 18-49 and 11.62 million total viewers from 9 to 11 p.m., nearly identical to last week’s 1.9/7 and 11.63 million for the lengthier three-hour coverage on ABC.

The previous Republican primary debates this year averaged a 7.4 overnight on Fox Business Network and an 8.4 on Fox News Channel. On the Democratic side, the highest for three debates was a 7.2 on NBC; Thursday’s Democratic gathering did a combined 6.3 rating on CNN and PBS. »

The sands will continue to flow through the hourglass: NBC has renewed Days of Our Lives for another year, the soap’s 51st.

Jimmy Fallon or Larry David: Whose Bernie Sanders Impression Wins?

11 February 2016 7:55 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon has gotten a lot of mileage out of his spot-on Donald Trump impression, but he just broke out his best Sen. Bernie Sanders for a fake New Hampshire victory speech -- complete with references to Red Lobster, and Hillary Clinton as "She Who Must Not Be Named": Of course, Larry David has already put his stamp on Bernie Sanders for "Saturday Night Live," and Sanders even showed up on SNL last weekend alongside his impersonator. (Hillary Clinton did something similar earlier this SNL season, for a sketch with Kate McKinnon. And SNL's two past and present Hillary impersonators, Amy Poehler and McKinnon, did a sketch together. SNL is still trying to get a handle on Ted Cruz, with Taran Killam going for a pretty brutal impression this past weekend in the Cold Open.)

Find Out if Jimmy Fallon’s Bernie Sanders Impression Can Compete With Larry David’s (Video)

11 February 2016 7:54 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jimmy Fallon is good at impressions, but when it comes to impersonating Bernie Sanders, the “Tonight Show” host’s got nothing on Larry David. Still, Fallon did his thing on Wednesday in a two-and-a-half minute sketch set after Sanders’ big New Hampshire primary win. Let us know in the comments section below if you think he keeps up with the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star or not. Either way, the jokes were good — or at least topical. Fallon even works in a Beyonce “Formation” quip at the end, a musical moment which will either have you dancing or thinking about Sanders and his wife. »

Jimmy Fallon Brings Bernie Sanders’ Message To ‘Tonight Show’

While Bernie Sanders was getting two full segments – and a show opening – in which to deliver his message on Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show, over on the country’s most watched late-night program The Tonight Show, his campaign’s site was billboarded for a full 2 minutes and 44 seconds on a podium while Jimmy Fallon competed for the title of Best Bernie Sanders Doppelganger, giving Larry David a run for his money.

SNL Outtake: Larry David Has a B---- of a Time With Kevin Roberts

Kevin Roberts has a very important question, and if Larry David can stop laughing perhaps we’ll get to it.

In this newly released footage from Saturday Night Live rehearsals, David is captured as he struggles to get through Roberts’ “Can a b-tch get a donut?!” catchphrase as he prepares for the February 6 broadcast.

Bernie Sanders’ doppelgänger can barely contain his enthusiasm for the outlandish sketch, which pretty much makes him the “coolest b-tch in town.”

The Top Ten HBO Dramas of All-Time

9 February 2016 6:02 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

There was once a time when I said goodbye to HBO and more importantly HBO Go as I moved to a new place where I didn’t want a $160 cable bill, but before I did that, I wanted to take one last look back at some of my favorite series from the channel. HBO has had so many good shows over the years, I had to restrict this list to dramas alone. No Larry David, Kenny Powers or Bret and Jemaine. Rather, these are the shows and characters that have become legends over the years from Tony Soprano to Al

Watch: Larry David Returns as Bernie Sanders on ‘SNL’

8 February 2016 11:30 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Larry David let viewers “feel the Bern” while playing Bernie Sanders on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. The “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star reprised his impeccable impression of the Democratic presidential candidate in an off-shoot of his popular HBO comedy. “Bern Your Enthusiasm” shows David as Sen. Bernie Sanders hot on the campaign trail, and encountering his fair share of awkward and cringe-worthy situations, much like David in the actual series. Leslie Jones plays a constituent who coughs into her hand prior to shaking Sanders’ hand, and the Dem candidate upsets her when he refuses to shake it. Back at campaign headquarters, he faces friends and co-workers who cannot seem to please him. Cecily Strong is pitch perfect as a variation of the Susie Essman character from the original show, delivering brash obscenities in a thick New York accent. Sanders disappoints yet another voter (Aidy Bryant) when he watches her car crash into a pole, »

SNL's 'Bern Your Enthusiasm' Is Pretty, Pretty, Pretty, Perfect

8 February 2016 9:41 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The only thing wrong with Larry David's "Saturday Night Live" episode is that it makes us miss "Curb Your Enthusiasm" even more. David has already been a major star of this SNL season, thanks to his spot-on impression of Sen. Bernie Sanders. For the February 6 show, held just three days before the 2016 New Hampshire Primary, David didn't do another debate performance, but he did play a very Larry David version of Bernie Sanders in the brilliant "Bern Your Enthusiasm" sketch.

It's classic "Curb," with Jay Pharoah knocking out another perfect impression as J.B. Smoove's Leon, and Cecily Strong earning guffaws with a dead-on Susie Greene. That it blends the actual Iowa caucus result with the usual Larry David "Curb" behavior -- including milk choice! -- is award-worthy:

Perfection.

Sen. Sanders showed up himself to mock the 1 percent, as embodied by Larry David, in a Titanic-like sketch called "Steam Ship":

Watch: The Best Super Bowl Moment Was Will Ferrell Not Talking About 'Zoolander 2'

8 February 2016 8:04 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Read More: 'Saturday Night Live' Review: Host Larry David Kicks Off First Stop on New (And Necessary) Political Tour All publicity is good publicity, but can no publicity be great publicity? That's the question that came to mind after Will Ferrell stopped by "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," following the Super Bowl Sunday night. Dressed in the duds of a true outdoorsman, Ferrell was technically there to promote "Zoolander 2," in which he co-stars as the evil clothing designer Mugatu. But he didn't want to talk about "Zoolander 2." In fact, he made a point not to talk about it despite Colbert prodding him a number of times to do just that. Instead, Ferrell wanted to audition for "The Late Show's" new "Exotic Animal Expert," a tradition dating back to "The Tonight Show," Letterman's "Late Show" and beyond, but has since been largely retired on the late night talk circuit. »

ABC Republican Debate Draws Big Saturday Audience: 13.2 Million Viewers

7 February 2016 1:06 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The return of Donald Trump to the stage helped lift ratings for last night’s Republican presidential primary debate on ABC, which has drawn the largest audience for a political gathering of either party in 2016 — and the network’s largest non-sports audience on a Saturday in more than 14 years.

Nielsen estimates that 13.2 million watched the Gop New Hampshire debate from 8:15-10:45 p.m. Et — up from the 11.09 million who watched the Fox Business Network debate on Jan. 14 and the 12.47 million tuning in for the Trump-less Fox News Channel debate on Jan. 28. It also was much higher-rated than the two Democratic debates of the year on NBC (10.16 million on Jan. 17) and MSNBC (4.47 million last Thursday).

The ABC Republican debate special delivered the network’s largest audience on a Saturday since September 2001. In January 2012, a Gop debate on the Alphabet drew 6.27 million viewers.

While the viewership for the Gop New Hampshire debate was very impressive, »

Zoolander and Hansel's Appearance on SNL Will Totally Make You Lol

7 February 2016 12:27 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson dropped by Saturday Night Live this week as their Zoolander characters, Derek Zoolander and Hansel, "to talk about the one thing everyone wants to hear male models talk about: politics." However, during "Weekend Update," the men reverted to their old ways and went on to assess Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Donald Trump's style. Hansel weighed in on Hillary's fashion sense, saying, "Hillary's from the '90s, which is really hot right now," while Zoolander stated that her style reminded him of his icon, Kim Jong-un. The men also confused Ted Cruz for Tom Cruise before going in on Donald. Watch the clip above now, and then check out Larry David's triumphant return to SNL. »

Larry David Makes a Triumphant Return to SNL and Reprises His Role as Bernie Sanders

7 February 2016 11:50 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Larry David reprised his role as Bernie Sanders when he returned to host Saturday Night Live this week, and we have to say, it was the best thing since Curb Your Enthusiasm. In an effort to spoof the comedy, David played out Bernie's campaign in Iowa as if it was an episode of the HBO series, refusing to shake hands with a woman (Leslie Jones) because she coughed, and saying, "I am running for president. I do not shake disgusting hands," and then not offering to help a lady (Aidy Bryant) who dislocated her shoulder. In true Curb Your Enthusiasm fashion, Bernie ends up losing the Iowa caucus by five votes, which is the same number of people he offended prior to the polls closing. Check out the hilarious spoof above now! »
