Jason Jones On Life and Work With Samantha Bee After ‘The Daily Show’

25 April 2017 5:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The Daily Show” may have entered a new era with host Trevor Noah, but it’s not like the old cast went into retirement. Husband-and-wife contributors Jason Jones and Samantha Bee are among the most productive former members of the Jon Stewart “Daily Show” years — which is particularly notable once you discover they came close to taking over the program themselves.

Instead, the pair found a welcome home at TBS, where Bee hosts the weekly satiric news program “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” (which will air the special “Not the White House Correspondents Dinner” this weekend) and Jones serves as an executive producer. Meanwhile, the couple is also behind the TBS comedy “The Detour,” a subversive family comedy that they co-wrote and in which Jones stars.

Now wrapping its second season, “The Detour” began as an over-the-top road trip comedy with Jones as a corporate whistleblower moving his family across the country. »

John Oliver Delivers Epic Trump Takedown by Analyzing ‘Stupid Watergate’ Wiretap Claim — Watch

6 March 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

On Sunday night’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” host John Oliver slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who is accused of lying under oath about his meetings with the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, while he was an advisor to Donald Trump’s campaign.

“Yes, Jeff Sessions, Trump’s attorney general, the unfortunate result of Dobby the House Elf’s one-night stand with a Confederate flag, got in trouble this week for undisclosed meetings with Russia’s ambassador,” Oliver jabbed.

Last week,  The Washington Post reported that during his confirmation hearings, Sessions failed to reveal that he met with Kislyak twice between July and September, while he was still a senator and an advisor to Trump’s campaign. When asked by Senator Al Franken what he would do as Ag if there was any evidence that anyone involved in the campaign had any type of communications with Russia during the campaign, »

Critic's Notebook: With Alec Baldwin as Host, 'SNL' Takes Trolling Trump to Next Level

11 February 2017 10:57 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

We're throwing out pages of the rulebook every day, but as a rule we don't usually know what TV shows presidential administrations hate. After all, TV critics have the ability to waste their time watching shows they hate, but presidents are supposed to have better things to do.

Right?

Even when the first Bush administration picked fights with the boob tube, there was never the impression that George and Barbara were sitting around watching The Simpsons each week or that Dan Quayle was hate-watching Murphy Brown back before hate-watching was a thing.

TV shows have been perceived as part of »

How Mary Tyler Moore Changed the Female TV Hero

26 January 2017 7:55 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The top three rated American shows of the 1969-1970 television season were, in order, Laugh-In, a ribald comedy show in which women were basically bikini-wearing furniture, and Gunsmoke and Bonanza, two cowboy shows in which tumbleweeds outnumbered female characters. Into this less-than-encouraging landscape, The Mary Tyler Moore Show was dropped into the CBS Saturday night line-up in September 1970 as if from a great height. Here was an utterly new character, defined in the pilot episode by her spunkiness. She was neither wife nor mother, sister nor daughter – she was the »

Candice Bergen Credits Mary Tyler Moore for Inspiring Murphy Brown: ‘She Opened the Door’

26 January 2017 6:44 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Candice Bergen became a feminist icon playing the title character in the acclaimed 1988 sitcom Murphy Brown. For ten seasons as the progressive, unwed female newscaster, the 70-year-old actress tackled groundbreaking issues like abortion, single motherhood, breast cancer, and medical marijuana — inspiring national conversations (and in the case of Dan Quayle, conservative outrage).

But Murphy Brown would have never existed if it weren’t for another fictional independent female working in the newsroom: Mary Richards.

The character brought to life on The Mary Tyler Moore Show by the late Mary Tyler Moore revolutionized how the world saw women. Richards was a career-oriented, »
