Jimmy Kimmel Unleashes His Troompa Loompas On ‘Bully’ Donald Trump

12 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Donald Trump’s boorish behavior during this election season isn’t exactly a surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention to the news. He frequently insults his opponents with childish nicknames to his crowd of supporters, and though he’s largely moved away from that now that he has sewed up the Gop nomination, Jimmy Kimmel has no problem reminding his viewers of Trump’s bullying tactics.

On last night’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” Kimmel played a supercut of Trump’s nicknames for other candidates — Little Marco, Crazy Bernie, Crooked Hillary, etc. Then, he brought out his crew of Troompa Loompas again to sing a Wonka-esque number about Trump’s behavior, complete with breakdancing and a reference to Trump’s old reality show “The Apprentice.” Watch the video below.

Margot Robbie's Intense Determination to Look Like Harry Potter as a Teenager Would Make Hogwarts Proud

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

Margot Robbie stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday night, but she really should have been on the Hogwarts Express. What started out as a regular interview quickly turned into a hilarious and embarrassing moment for the Legend of Tarzan actress when the host revealed a throwback photo of her that one of her best friends sent in. In the snap, a 13-year-old Margot is drinking a cup of tea while reading a Harry Potter book in bed. But while that could have been enough to make Margot blush, she took things a step further and actually revealed that the glasses she's wearing in the photo are completely unnecessary. "I'm wearing glasses, which I didn't actually need," she explained. "I have 20/20 vision, and I lied to get glasses so I could look like Harry Potter. They're not even cool ones. They're, like, ugly glasses. I went to the optometrist and I was like, »

Jimmy Kimmel Invites Mamrie Hart, Lohanthony And Other Creators To Read ‘Mean Tweets’

25 June 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Jimmy Kimmel has had a somewhat contentious relationship with certain members of the YouTube community in the past. But this week, ahead of VidCon, the late night host paid tribute to digital stars by inviting a handful to participate in his much-beloved Mean Tweets series, where celebrities read insults lobbed at them by angry commentators via Twitter.

Dubbed the Creator Edition, the clip features Smosh, Lilly Singh, Markiplier, and more, and several of the participants -- likely more schooled in the art of trolling than traditional celebrities -- are armed with quick-witted comebacks. When an angry tweeter tells Singh, aka Superwoman, that “ur videos was worst,” she deadpans, “Well, your English was worster.”

The Bachelorette's Chad Johnson Comes Clean: That Behavior, Those Instagram Pics...and Becoming the Next Bachelor?!

21 June 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Bad Chad is finally breaking his silence.  Following his dramatic exit from The Bachelorette, Chad Johnson, one of the franchise's most polarizing contestants ever, made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night, where he sounded off on his controversial behavior. The luxury real estate agent Skyped in from Tulsa, along with his adorable dog Pumpkin (who seems over the entire thing while lounging on the couch in the background), and while he didn't have time to watch last night's episode, Jimmy Kimmel showed him the clip of the guys celebrating, cupcakes, confetti and all, after he was eliminated. "It's pretty hilarious," Chad says with a laugh.

He might have earned himself the nickname "Bad Chad" for his behavior on The Bachelorette this season, but according to Chad Johnson himself, he's not exactly the guy he was portrayed to be on TV. Skyping into Jimmy Kimmel Live! following Monday's episode of the hit reality dating show, where we finally saw the last of Johnson for once and for all, the Oklahoma-based realtor did his best to defend himself for his antics this season - which included physical altercations with the other contestants and threats of violence.

Late-Night Shows Eye First-Time Nominations

15 June 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s a promising time to be a late-night talk-show host in contention for an Emmy: Old-timers David Letterman and Jon Stewart, who combined have won a record-breaking 22 Emmys, have retired their proverbial jersey numbers and there’s finally room for fresh talent to prove its mettle.

In addition to returning contenders Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, John Oliver and Stephen Colbert (in a different show), this year’s competition features a bevy of fresh options, with such comics as Samantha Bee, implementing her crackling political wit on her eponymous talk show, and James Corden, whose infectiously appealing carpool karaoke segments have gone viral.

The circus-like chaos pervading the presidential campaign has provided invaluable fodder for shows such as “Real Time With Bill Maher” and Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight.” His “Donald Drumpf” segment, which revealed the Republican candidate’s ancestral surname, broke HBO viewing records and had social-media feeds atwitter.

Ever-sarcastic Chelsea Handler entertained fans on her new Netflix show, and Jerry Seinfeld satisfied his love of witty banter and classic automobiles in season 7 of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” Larry Wilmore put a humorous spin on current events on his eponymous show.

Late-Night Shake-Up Plays Big Factor in Awards Race

15 June 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With former Emmy winner David Letterman and record-breaker Jon Stewart off the air, this year’s race for the Emmy in late night has become an open field for newcomers. Meanwhile veterans Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel continue to seek that elusive Emmy win.

The only other person to break that juggernaut was Stephen Colbert, who jumped ship from Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” to mainstreaming with CBS’ “Late Show.” For a whopping 13 consecutive years either “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” or its offshoot “The Colbert Report” has won the variety category. Prior to that, “Late Show With David Letterman” took the category from 1998-2002. In the hotly contested battle of the bye-byes, Stewart beat out Letterman and took home the 2015 Emmy. Last year, although Craig Ferguson was also bidding adieu to his show, there were essentially only two frontrunners destined to take home yet another golden statuette.

The one thing we can predict for 2016: Someone new will be taking home the Emmy.

This year’s hosts have all achieved varying degrees of success. Some have racked up impressive ratings, others have been blowing up the internet with their sketches and monologues.

“It’s a hard year to stand out, but that’s what makes it so satisfying,” says CBS’ “The Late Late Show With James Corden” executive producer Ben Winston. “There are essentially at least five new shows, all competing for eyeballs.”

“Corden” executive producer Rob Crabbe says having so many newcomers to the game has helped make this a particularly good time for late night.

“It raises everybody’s game when you have to work harder to get noticed,” Crabbe says. “It’s good for us and for late night in general.”

Many of the potential candidates for this year’s race trace their roots to “Saturday Night Live,” including Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers, and “The Daily Show” (Stephen Colbert, John Oliver, Larry Wilmore and Samantha Bee). Some have exceeded expectations while others, including Stewart’s replacement Trevor Noah, have not yet gained their footing. Ratings for “The Daily Show” have sunk more than 30% since Noah replaced Stewart, and the buzz has been almost nonexistent for a show that has always thrived in big election years. And this has been a year when political satire has had access to a lot of easy pickings. Critics have been, at best, lukewarm to Noah’s charms. Stepping up have been “Daily Show” alums Wilmore on Comedy Central’s “The Nightly Show” and Oliver and Bee who, admittedly, have only had to shine once a week rather than four or five.

“While ‘The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore’ hasn’t achieved the heights of its predecessor, ‘The Colbert Report,’ it has a host whose deadpan delivery and improvisational chops make for a dependably funny half-hour,” writes Variety chief TV Critic Maureen Ryan.

“It’s a hard year to stand out, but that’s what makes it so satisfying. There are essentially at least five new shows, all competing for eyeballs.” Ben Winston

“In an election year in which race is part of the conversation as it rarely has been in the past, Wilmore has found a multitude of serious and sarcastic ways to come at that crucial topic, and his riffs on the news of the day are often dryly amusing as well.”

HBO’s “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver” and TBS’ “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” each have offered up sharp looks on the political scene with a biting edge.

“Oliver seems almost a guarantee to win a [repeat] nom, because his show is truly doing something new: investigative comedy,” says Bill Carter, author of three books on late-night television, including the seminal “Late Shift.” “I’m sure a range of his extended examinations on topics will make excellent submissions.”

As for Bee, Carter says no one has brought more passion to the pursuit of political satire. With Stewart out of the picture, she seems to have jumped into that niche both with fervor and creative excellence.

“On weeks when we are away from the office, we should be enjoying time off but instead we are texting each other,” says “Frontal” showrunner Jo Miller, formerly of “The Daily Show.” “When you talk about Congress not passing a non-partisan [military] sexual assault bill, it’s hard not to get passionate about that.”

Bee is also the only woman in the game who appears to have outstanding reviews and widespread support to help her break through the male-dominated field. When the Academy split the variety category last year, Amy Schumer took home the Emmy for the newly created variety sketch category. Prior to that, the last woman to win in the category was Tracey Ullman’s HBO series “Tracey Takes On…” in 1997.

“We do visceral rage that is wonky and nerdy,” Miller says. “But beyond that, John Oliver was the first one who took what we did on ‘The Daily Show’ format and take those strengths to go deeper.”

Miller says most of the late-night shows have developed through the strengths of the hosts’ backgrounds.

“Kimmel’s man on the street is so much fun to watch, [as is] Conan going abroad. Fallon would be bored to death if he had to just sit at a desk,” Miller says.

NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers” has become more political this sophomore year, which may bode well for the show. He still bests newcomer Corden in the ratings. But most eyes are on the 11:35 p.m. broadcast contenders.

The traditional network talk shows have gotten a good shake-up in the past few years with the departures of Jay Leno and Letterman, once the powerhouses of network late-night talk.

“You have to think Jimmy Fallon is the shoo-in to win an Emmy nomination both by his consistent edge in popularity and the fact that he basically re-invented the format — or at least put his own spin on it,” Carter says. “What used to be a talk show with comedy is now a comedy performance show with talk.”

And while Colbert’s appearance on a broadcast network as Letterman’s replacement came with much excitement last fall, he hasn’t seemed to be able to maintain that initial thrust. His show still bests the now veteran Jimmy Kimmel on ABC, but not by much. Unlike Kimmel, Fallon and his late-night CBS teammate Corden, he hasn’t made a huge impact online.

On the flip side, newcomer Corden, who took over Ferguson’s spot, appears to be settling in much better than expected. He may be last in the timeslot ratings by a slender margin, but he’s become a YouTube sensation. All his clips do well, with his most successful being Carpool Karaoke, where he takes celebrated recording artists such as Jennifer Hudson and Adele out of the studio and into a car for a seemingly spontaneous chat and sing-along with the aid of a dash camera.

Crabbe, who previously worked on the Fallon show, says the late-night talk-show format has been restructured to serve the strengths of the new hosts.

Jimmy [Fallon] came to it after years on ‘SNL’ and a sketch comedy background. [Corden] came as a Tony Award winner, Disney film actor and successful [British] sitcom star. What he hadn’t done was monologues or standup, so the tropes of late night were new to him,” Crabbe says. “I think the skill set is different than those that used to host late night.”

When Emmy voters stamp their ballots, they’ll need to look at a lot of fresh faces, and also perhaps take a second glance at the ones who might have been overlooked in the past.

“I still think Jimmy Kimmel gets better every year, and he can trot out a host of signature comedy bits. Corden really has defied the odds [from an unknown] to become the most talked about and massively streamed of the new hosts,” Carter says. “Corden has provided a jolt to the format and I really expect him to get some sort of recognition, even with all the competition. The ever-increasing number of late-night stars makes selecting just [six] of them or fewer tougher than ever.”

Netflix continues to double down on original content, and the streaming service’s upcoming horror thriller “Stranger Things” blew up on social thanks to a creepy new trailer.

The trailer generated more than one million engagements across digital platforms,  1.5 million views on YouTube and 1.8 million views on Facebook this week, drawing comparisons to Spielberg and classic ‘80s science fiction thrillers.

HBO had a strong showing as well, with “Game of Thrones” generating 11.6 million engagements, thanks in part to one clip of a plot-twisting reveal earning a higher than average 1.8 million views on Facebook alone. Look for “Game of Thrones” to increase in the rankings as the season finale approaches on June 26.

Jason Klein is the Co-Founder and Co-ceo of ListenFirst Media, a data and analytics company providing insights for brands. ListenFirst aggregates data streams from a wide range of digital, social, and traditional marketing sources to help brands optimize business performance.

Methodology:

ListenFirst Digital Audience Ratings (Dar) for Television are a raw aggregate of daily engagements based on owned, earned and organic consumer behavior on Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, Wikipedia and YouTube. These engagements encompass metrics pertaining to audience growth, page/profile views, page-level and post-level interactions, hashtag volume and Wikipedia page views for all television program pages (which provides a proxy for organic search volume).

Organic conversation volume is calculated based on the use of official hashtags, as well as those hashtags submitted directly from programmers and distributors. Only hashtags where conversation can be isolated to a specific television program are included in the rating.

The Variety weekly leaderboards for television represent the 7-day (Monday – Sunday) sum total of Dar – TV for all episodic programming, in and out of season, from the most popular programmers (Broadcast, Cable, & Streaming Services). Sports, live events, short-form content and other non-episodic programming are excluded from this ranking cohort but available to be rated directly by ListenFirst Media.

The Broadcast and Cable/Streaming Originals leaderboards each surface the respective top ten primetime programs. The Late Night leaderboard surfaces the top five late night / variety genre programs, from across the programming universe. Streaming Originals are considered primetime cable programming.

The Trending Leaderboard surfaces the three programs that tracked the largest relative growth in Dar – TV (from the previous 7-day measurement period), and are also in the top 25% based on absolute Dar – TV, from across the programming universe.

ListenFirst monitors the official digital account owned by the program on each aforementioned platform (except for Wikipedia, where the title-specific profile is considered official). Only the U.S. version of a program’s digital presence is monitored; for platforms that support regional profiles like Facebook, the “Global” profile is considered the U.S. profile. Only profiles that can be attributed to the specific program contribute to the rating (i.e. engagements that happen on the profile facebook.com/LouieFX are tracked, while engagements that happen on facebook.com/FX are not). For YouTube, in addition to any program-specific presence, content related to the program in question that originated on the parent company’s official YouTube channel is considered.

Note: Twitter data has been removed from Digital Audience Ratings (Dar) for Television as of 10/7/2014.
