Jim Carrey, Aidy Bryant Introduce Hollywood Power Couple #Jaidy in ‘SNL’ Promo (Video)

22 October 2014 10:22 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

World, meet new celebrity power couple #Jaidy. Oh, you hate them? Sorry. Jim Carrey and “SNL” star Aidy Bryant are the type of comic actors that will do anything for attention, even if that means using this week's “Saturday Night Live” promos to create a fake Hollywood relationship, complete with an obnoxious nickname and hashtag — which in their case, is #Jaidy. So maybe the results weren't well-received and the hashtag didn't trend, but it made for a pretty funny (if awkward) commercial for the upcoming episode.

Popular actor sought for big budget comic book movie

19 October 2014 3:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on the casting speculation for big budget comic book movies…

“Popular actor sought for big budget comic book movie.”

It reads like a headline from The Onion. A satirical oversimplification of a news trend that has been plaguing entertainment websites of late. Since Marvel Studios has become a dominant pop culture staple, casting speculation has infected the entertainment media in the same way that fantasy football turned an already fun sport into a narcissistic nightmare of entitlement.

Casting speculation has always been a staple of online film sites. When the rumor mill begins to churn around a major project like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the excitement is understandable. Readers seem to have an insatiable appetite for even the most random possibilities being bandied about by websites with absolutely zero credibility (cough… Latino Review… cough).

The concept of casting speculation has taken a ridiculous turn. It’s »

Update: The list has been amended to include the three segments from "Treehouse of Horror Xxv." That's right: In honor of The Simpsons' 25th (!) annual Halloween special, EW didn't just rank the top 25 "Treehouse of Horror" segments. We took things a step further by ranking every single "Treehouse" segment ever seen on the show—and you'll find entries 72 through 26 in the list below.

Bill O'Reilly on Jon Stewart Debate: He's ‘a Big White Privilege Guy’

It looks like Jon Stewart hasn't completely changed Bill O'Reilly‘s mind. Also read: Bill O'Reilly Thinks He's Ratings Gold and Jon Stewart Is ‘Culturally Important’ (Video) On Thursday night, O'Reilly recounted his debate with Stewart the night before. “Stewart's a big white privilege guy believing that black Americans have a huge disadvantage in life because whites dominate America,” O'Reilly said. “I say it is indeed harder for African Americans to succeed, but pushing the white privilege theory creates victimization. It gives people an excuse to fail or do bad things.” Also read: Jon Stewart Accuses Bill O'Reilly, Other Media »

Jon Stewart Takes Florida to Task for Most Ridiculous Campaign Debate Ever (Video)

17 October 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Voter Fraud. Hanging chads… they've got nothing on Florida's latest gubernatorial race scandal. In a segment “The Daily Show” has dubbed “The Last Perspiration of Crist,” host Jon Stewart tears apart the great “Crist Ball Fan” scandal of 2014, in which current Republican Florida Governor Rick Scott at first refused to appear on stage to debate Democratic challenger (and former Governor) Charlie Crist, because Crist had a small fan under his podium pointing upward towards his nether regions. “We have been told that Gov. Rick Scott will not be participating in this debate,” the moderator begins. Also see Stephen Colbert‘s take on. »

16 October 2014 12:43 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Does white privilege still exist in America? How about we tackle the question by watching a shouting match between two middle-aged white dudes!  That's exactly what Bill O'Reilly and Jon Stewart did when the O'Reilly Show Factor star stopped by The Daily Show last night to promote his latest book Killing Patton. However, the conversation quickly took a turn in subject matter after the Comedy Central star shamelessly admitted he hadn't even read O'Reilly's tome before pressing the conservative commentator to agree with his point of view: "I want you to admit that there is such a thing as white privilege" (O'Reilly has previously stated that the notion is a »

The media's odd couple got together again Wednesday night to debate the issue of white privilege.
