Here’s What’s New to Netflix in June: Marvel, Scorsese, and More

23 May 2015 7:54 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

School’s out for summer, and the monthly changeover at Netflix is about to ensure that you’ll have plenty of different content to watch next month. A number of films will become available to stream in June, including the magnificent Nightcrawler, Martin Scorsese’s somewhat underrated The Aviator, Jon Stewart’s directorial debut Rosewater, and one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s final films, A Most Wanted Man. Additionally, last year’s critically hailed but way underseen Beyond the Lights will be available to stream, as will Transformers: Age of Extinction if you enjoy having your senses assaulted. On the TV side, Season 2 of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Scandal Season 4 will become available, as will the third season of the Netflix Original Series Orange Is the New Black and the first season of Sense8, from creators Lana and Andy Wachowski. Check out the full list of new to Netflix titles below. »

Review: a stoic but touching send-off for the Late Show

Thank you and goodnight -David Letterman #ThanksDave pic.twitter.com/KV9F3CiLZd

As James Corden and Sting sing and “rap”, America needs to get used to a late-night landscape without Letterman.

Oh, a segment dedicated to the times he’s blown stuff up: ok

12.51am Et

Is there something else? …

I’ve got to admit: he’s been clever here. The jokes weren’t the sharpest at the start but he’s really let the show do the talking all night, dropping in clips that really communicate how much a part of Us »

David Letterman’s ‘Late Night’ Opening Sequence Gets Recreated by Seth Meyers (Video)

20 May 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Seth Meyers paid tribute to retiring late-night host David Letterman on Tuesday night by kicking off NBC’s “Late Night” with a shot-for-shot recreation of the opening sequence the show used in 1982 when Letterman launched it. “And now a man who knows that it’s Letterman’s show, and he’s just borrowing it,” the announcer says at the end of the sequence before introducing Meyers. Meyers’ nod to Letterman was one of many from other late-night comedians, including Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Jon Stewart.

How David Letterman Broke Latenight TV

18 May 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With his off-kilter sensibility (Stupid Pet Tricks?) and his penchant for the oddball (what other host runs across the stage in silhouette before starting a show, or strikes up a telephone relationship with a woman who works in an office across the street?), David Letterman has left everyone who enjoys latenight television in stitches. Now, he’s about to leave them in splinters.

When Letterman signs off CBS’ “Late Show”for the last time early Thursday morning, he will deprive TV of its last direct link to Johnny Carson and an era when just one, then two, hosts could dominate the period. The arrivals of Jimmy Kimmel at ABC, then Jimmy Fallon at NBC, and, soon, Stephen Colbert at CBS have given rise to talk of a third generation of late-night talent (if Carson, not Jack Paar or Steve Allen, is to be seen as the root of this particular »

Jon Stewart On David Letterman: “The Man Put A Camera On A Monkey!”

15 May 2015 6:29 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Jon Stewart became the first late-night host to deliver his David Letterman send-off, last night: “We're off all next week and so we will miss on Wednesday night a young man named David Letterman signing off from his program,” Stewart began. “He was for me, and I  think for many comics of my generation, an incredible epiphany of how a talk show or entertainment, or how television – for god sake! The man put a camera on a monkey! It seems so simple now, but back then, it… »

Watch: Samantha Bee is "Female as F-ck" and Crashing the Sausage Party That is Late-Night TV

14 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Samantha Bee, the longest-serving correspondent ever on "The Daily Show," took herself out of consideration for the role of Jon Stewart's replacement to front her own show on TBS. Alongside E!'s Grace Helbig, Bee is one of 2015's two female late-night hosts. Late night, of course, is dominated by (white) men, a point crudely and hilariously illustrated in a new spot for Bee's politically themed talk show.  "You know, when I take a look at each piece individually, I like it. Then when I take a step back, I feel like something's missing," Bee observes, standing in front of a gallery of late-night hosts -- all white men, of course. A server comes by, offering her some meat treats. "I'm kinda done with sausages," Bee then announces, proudly identifying herself as "female as fuck." So it certainly seems that Bee isn't going to shy away from criticizing the »

Sean Hannity Slams ‘Sanctimonious Jackass’ Jon Stewart for Spring Break Coverage Criticism (Video)

14 May 2015 6:33 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Sean Hannity continued his coverage of the dangers of out of control spring break partying Wednesday night, and sent a message to Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart in the process. “Of course, he’s a sanctimonious jackass — he hasn’t commented since the seven people were shot, the two gang rapes in broad daylight,” Hannity said about the “Daily Show” host. Stewart had mocked “America’s oldest hall monitor” Sean Hannity for dedicating five different shows to risky spring break behavior.

Is 'Green Lantern' Coming in 'The Flash' Season 2?

13 May 2015 6:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many have wondered if The CW plans on bringing the DC Comics character Green Lantern into either Arrow or The Flash, since the company Ferris Air has been mentioned by name several times in both shows. There has never been any more significant hints about Green Lantern's arrival though...But that all changed in last night's episode of The Flash, "Rogue Air". In the episode, Barry (Grant Gustin) teams up with his nemesis Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), as they both meet with several other members of Team Flash at the abandoned Ferris Air facility. When Captain Cold mentions that he thought this place got shot down, Barry said that one of their test pilots disappeared, which is of course very similar to Hal Jordan's origin as Green Lantern.

There have been rumors in the past that both Arrow or The Flash will form their own small screen version of the Justice League, »

John Legend on Why Racism Needs to Be Discussed: "It's Killing Our Kids"

13 May 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

John Legend stopped by The Daily Show to talk to Jon Stewart about his upcoming documentary, Southern Rites, on Monday, and the singer got candid about how racism continues to affect society. He's an executive producer for the HBO documentary, which covers segregated proms in Georgia. During the interview, John talked about the nature of racism, saying, "Some racism is easy to identify, the Donald Sterlings of the world, the people who use the N-word in a malicious way. . . . But a lot of racism is structural." He referenced the criminal justice system and "things that end up discounting the value of black lives." At one point, Jon mentioned how some people get frustrated by the race conversation, and John said, "We don't want to talk about racism all of the time. If it weren't here, if we didn't have to deal with it every day, we would love for it »

Jon Stewart Rips Jeb Bush: Mentioning George W. Bush ‘Is Like Wearing an ‘I F–k Dogs’ T-Shirt’ (Video)

13 May 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jon Stewart ripped into some of the newest Republican candidates Tuesday, saving special scorn for Jeb Bush, who hasn’t even formally announced yet. “The Daily Show” host played a clip of Bush telling Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly he would have still invaded Iraq knowing what we know now. “When an Iraq War question starts with ‘knowing what we know now,’ ‘Hell yes I’d still do it’ is not an unacceptable response,” Stewart said. “Sure, I’d get on the Titanic again — at the time it had a terrific buffet.” Also Read: Jon Stewart Takes 'Balloon' Dick Cheney on Journey Back Through. »

When former R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe watched the documentary R.E.M. by MTV, which is coming to movie theaters next week, one thing stood out to him about himself. "I realized [that] part of who I am now is that I came from a place of being paralyzingly shy," the singer said in a video interview taken after a New York screening last year. "I've already subtitled this piece 'Watch Michael Learn How to Talk.'"

The doc chronicles the history of the band by using footage from the vast archives of MTV, »

Jon Stewart on Tom Brady's Suspension: 'He Wins Again!'

13 May 2015 5:57 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The NFL came down hard on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for his role in Deflategate, suspending him without pay for four games and fining his team $1 million and a first round draft pick. After the Wells Report on Deflategate was unveiled, The Daily Show took aim at Brady. "The other night, we mentioned Tom Brady. I believe I called him 'cheating fuck,'" Jon Stewart said Tuesday night. "Well, now it's payback."

While there was no hard evidence Brady cheated, Stewart feels Brady got what he deserved, even »

Try as he might, Jon Stewart just can't hurt Tom Brady.  Following Stewart's tirade last week against the New England Patriots quarterback, the Daily Show host addressed the four-game suspension that the NFL has leveraged against Brady for playing with deflated footballs in the Afc title game.  On Tuesday's episode, Stewart expressed his shock that the punishment wasn't harsher and pointed out that Brady could theoretically be spending the four weeks of his suspension on the beach with his loving family and photogenic wife Gisele.  Read More Jon Stewart Rips Tom Brady Over Alleged Role in DeflateGate: "You Cheating F—er!"

Comedy Central will no longer air The Daily Show in the UK

12 May 2015 5:34 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jon Stewart isn't the only one parting company with The Daily Show, as Comedy Central will no longer air the series in the UK.

The talk show has aired on Comedy Central Extra since 2012, but the channel plans to focus on "other genres of comedy" in the future.

A spokesperson said: "Comedy Central Extra will no longer broadcast The Daily Show.

"This is because Comedy Central Extra is currently moving away from talk shows and focusing on other genres of comedy."

Later this year, Trevor Noah will replace Stewart as host of the long-running talk show.

It was recently confirmed that Stewart will make his final Daily Show appearance on August 6.

Watch Jon Stewart Rip 'Cheating F--k' Tom Brady Over Deflategate

8 May 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Before Tom Brady doubled down on his Deflategate naiveté during a Q&A session Thursday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart let it be known where he stands on football's latest controversy. In a segment cleverly titled "The Fresh Prince of Ball Air," Stewart sacked Brady and poked fun at Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who previously spouted in a self-shot video that the only thing deflating were "deez nuts." "[Brady] fucking knew! He knew that the balls were being deflated," Stewart said of the quarterback.

Jon Stewart Goes Off On Tom Brady, Internet Forgets Everything Else He’s Ever Said

8 May 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Jon Stewart went off on deflategate following the release of the report on the investigation into who knew or did what. During the clip, Stewart goes off on Tom Brady, and shows a video by Gronk, which isn’t really related to anything, beyond the fact that Gronk is a really smart guy.

In truly curious fashion, the internet absolutely lost its mind as a result.

The clip quickly turned up everywhere, and everyone is talking about it, but it’s as though no one has ever seen the show before.

Forget about the intro to the segment, which has Stewart clearly mocking the media in general for their coverage, going so far as to show the cover of a magazine completely devoted to deflated balls with Iran Nukes on the cover. Forget that Stewart picks out – “more probable than not,” and, “was at least generally aware,’ as the findings he wants to mention. »

Rosewater review: Jon Stewart's debut is full of invention and tension

8 May 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jon Stewart; Screenwriter: Jon Stewart; Starring: Gael García Bernal, Kim Bodnia, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Jason Jones; Running time: 103 mins; Certificate: 15

Based on Newsweek journalist Maziar Bahari's memoir Then They Came for Me: A Family's Story of Love, Captivity, and Survival, Jon Stewart's directorial debut Rosewater is a fascinating and unflinching look at how the truth is treated as hostile by oppressive political regimes. It also highlights the courage of those who sacrifice their liberty by not surrendering their morality.

Rosewater charts the mistaken arrest, incarceration and interrogation of Bahari (Gael Garcia Bernal) after he is accused of being a spy by the Iranian authorities while covering their elections in 2009. His 'crime' was to record footage depicting the nation's internal turmoil and send it to broadcasters on the outside world. An interview with satirical American programme The Daily Show - then presented by this movie's writer-director Jon Stewart - only compounded matters. »

Jon Stewart Obliterates Tom Brady Over Deflategate: ‘Tommy, You Cheating F-cker!’ (Video)

8 May 2015 5:49 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jon Stewart has seen it all in 16 years, but the deflated balls scandal surrounding Tom Brady and the Patriots is unprecedented, the Daily Show host said Thursday. “He f-cking knew,” Stewart said, recounting the evidence revealed in the Wells report that shows damning text messages that seem to show Tom Brady knew his game footballs were deflated before the Patriots-Colts Afc Championship game in January. “One of the guys in the locker room, at the behest of Tom Brady, called himself the deflater–what was the other guy’s nickname? ‘Joey cheats at football?'”Stewart railed.
