Martha Thomases’ It’s a Wonderful Life

29 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This is quite the week for women. Powerful women.

At the San Diego Comic Con, the United States Post Office announced that, in honor of her 75th anniversary, it was issuing a series of Wonder Woman stamps. This makes me very happy, since I just ran out of Batman stamps.

Also at Sdcc, Warner Bros. released the first trailer for the Wonder Woman movie, due out in February. There were other trailers from Warners and other studios, but Wonder Woman is what everybody was talking about, at least on my feed.

While Supergirl was the first super heroine I loved, I also always adored Wonder Woman. When I first read her stories, they were as silly as many other comics with guest stars who included mermen and bird men. I didn’t know about her kinky origin, but I did notice that every story involved someone getting tied up. That »

28 July 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Democrats at their national convention want to tell Americans that whatever they think of Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump is worse. They’re doing it with a barrage of sick burns. Here are some of the best. Elizabeth Banks “Some of you know me from The Hunger Games, in which I play Effie Trinket — a cruel, out-of-touch reality TV star who wears insane wigs while delivering long-winded speeches to a violent dystopia. So when I tuned into Cleveland last week, I was like, ‘Hey, that’s my act.'” Sarah Silverman “This Democratic primary was exemplary.

Sarah Silverman made 'Howard Stern Show' history at the DNC

26 July 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sarah Silverman made big news on Monday night when she called the "Bernie or Bust" crowd "ridiculous" from the DNC stage in primetime, but for Howard Stern fans her speech was notable for another reason: it was the first time "Baba Booey" was invoked, at least to my knowledge, at a major political convention. For those not in the know: "Baba Booey" is the nickname of longtime Howard Stern Show producer Gary Dell'Abate, who has (mostly) come to embrace the moniker since he was first anointed with it on July 26, 1990 (backstory here). More broadly, though, it's become a way for Stern Show fans to make their presence known at high-profile events, from professional golf tournaments to network news broadcasts. In short: when you hear "Baba Booey" shouted out, you can be pretty sure there's a Stern fanatic in the general vicinity. Silverman -- who was an ardent Bernie Sanders supporter »

Ratings: ‘Bachelorette’ Boosts ABC’s Democratic Convention Coverage

26 July 2016 9:16 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

ABC and NBC tied in the key 18-49 demographic ratings with their respective Democratic National Convention coverage at 10 p.m. Et on Monday. In total viewers, the Disney-owned broadcaster owned the time slot alone. Of course, it didn’t hurt that lead-in “The Bachelorette” was the top show of Monday primetime, which ABC won outright on an average basis. Those two aforementioned networks tied across all of primetime on the first night of the Republican National Convention, exactly one week ago. NBC bested its competition in the 10 o’clock hour back then, however. Also Read: Sarah Silverman Tells Bernie-or-Bust Camp at Democratic Convention: 'You're Being. »

On a Night With Real Stakes for Democrats, Michelle Obama Won Crowd and News Cycle

26 July 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The New York Daily News decided, during Michelle Obama’s speech around 10 p.m. Est, to switch their cover from “Ass Warfare!,” featuring protestors at the Democratic National Convention, to “The Lady Is Her Champ,” with a big photo of the First Lady and a Hillary 2016 logo emblazoned on it. If anything was an indicator of victory for the DNC, it was that course correction in narrative — from a party rife with dissent to a party united behind a charismatic leader. Of course, that leader wasn’t exactly the leader this DNC is about. But settle in: We’re just at the end of act one.

All day Monday, the start to the DNC was plagued with controversy, most of which boggle the limits of plausibility. A cache of hacked emails that revealed former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s inept efforts to derail Bernie Sanders from winning the primary led to a kerfuffle where the “showrunner »

Sarah Silverman Mocks Republican Presidential Candidates, 'Bernie or Bust' Dems in DNC Speech

25 July 2016 7:09 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Comedian Sarah Silverman admitted to “feeling the Bern” at the start of her 2016 Democratic National Convention speech, but dang, she doled out some burns to members of both parties by the time she’d finished.

The Masters of Sex star started with a zinger that very likely crossed party lines: “Citizens United — isn’t that such a beautiful name for something that means ‘Billionaires Buying Politicians’? ”

Eventually, though, Silverman eviscerated the jabs about penis size, sweat glands and other superficial concerns that plagued the Republican primary race eventually won by Donald Trump: “That stuff is for third graders. Come on! »
