Cable-News Hopes for ‘Nightline’ Moment for Election-Cycle Shows

21 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

MSNBC’s “11th Hour” wasn’t supposed to be on the air more than a few weeks.  “We’ll be here at this hour from now until Election Day,” noted the show’s host, Brian Williams, during its 11 p.m. debut in early September, “when we will cancel ourselves.”

With nearly a month passed since that demarcation point, Williams’ show is still on the air.

Over at CNN, meanwhile, Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper continue to host two-hour long versions of their primetime shows, which were expanded months ago as interest in the coming election boomed.

Cable-news appears to be hoping for a new “Nightline” moment. That venerable ABC program had its origins in a news tsunami that gripped the nation in 1979, the Iran hostage crisis. Ted Koppel convened an audience on most weekdays after the late local news to give them the latest details on the situation, and in doing so became so entrenched in the »

See 'SNL' Tease Donald Trump Over Twitter Habit in 'Totally Biased' Sketch

4 December 2016 5:49 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Alec Baldwin returned to Saturday Night Live to mock President-elect Donald Trump and his Twitter habit, which this week included retweeting a 16-year-old high school student.

"There is a reason actually that Donald tweets so much, he does it to distract the media from his business conflicts and all the very scary people in his cabinet," Kate McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway says, before Baldwin chimes in, "Also, my brain is bad."

The sketch stuffed a week's worth of Trump controversies into five minutes, from the President-elect reportedly dodging security meetings »

Emma Stone Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches

4 December 2016 4:42 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Emma Stone hasn’t hosted Saturday Night Live in five years — a fact that was used as the basis for one of the worst opening monologues of this season’s fall run.

Be that as it may, the episode promptly turned itself around some, ending up a more memorable outing than Kristen Wiig’s mediocre affair just two weeks ago. Unfortunately, little of what made it good was due to Stone who, despite being an excellent host, largely blended into the background (or was completely »

Alec Baldwin Explains Donald Trump's Tweeting Habit on 'Saturday Night Live': 'My Brain is Bad'

4 December 2016 12:55 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Saturday Night Live went after Donald Trump yet again over the weekend, with Alec Baldwin reprising his impression of the president-elect to lampoon Trump's penchant for retweeting random teenagers.

In Saturday's cold open, Pete Davidson played high schooler Seth Morton, whom Trump recently found the time to retweet while in the midst of learning what a president does.

"I just retweeted the best tweet. I mean, wow, what a great, smart tweet," Baldwin's Trump explained to Kate McKinnon's Kellyanne Conway.

"I really did retweet him, seriously," he reiterated, looking directly into the camera to break the fourth wall.

"He really did do this," Conway added to the camera.

"It was from a young man named Seth. He's 16 and he's in high school, and I really did retweet him," the president-elect »

‘Network’ Turns 40: Here Are 3 Ways It Changed How We Understand News Media

2 December 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Because 2016 cares not for subtlety, this month marks the 40th anniversary of “Network.” Since its release in November 1976 to wide praise and an eventual heap of Oscars, director Sidney Lumet and writer Paddy Chayefsky’s excoriation of the exponentially money-driven, bottom-feeding tendencies of television news has only grown in renown, as each angry pundit updates the film’s library of prophecies about The State of Television Today.

With the ascent of an actual reality TV star to the U.S. Presidency following a broadcast news cycle that worked for everything but a dedication to public interest, it would seem that this depressing political season has reached the logical end of the film’s apocalyptic forecast, landing on a reality too absurd for even “Network” to dramatize: Howard Beale as President. However, as we reflect on what’s gone wrong with contemporary news media and political culture, it’s important to »

Watch Stephen Colbert Mock Donald Trump, Mitt Romney Dinner Photo

1 December 2016 12:26 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Stephen Colbert mocked Donald Trump's devilish glee during dinner with former foe, and potential Secretary of State nominee, Mitt Romney during his Late Show monologue Wednesday.

Colbert first noted Trump's lavish dinner order – young garlic soup with thyme and sautéed frogs legs – cracking, "I thought he was going to drain the swamp, not eat its contents." But the Late Show host quickly turned to Trump and Romney's contentious past and a widely circulated photo from the dinner that showed the president-elect grinning wildly while Romney sported a grim look. »

Late night comics Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah feasted on Donald Trump’s dinner with Gop critic Mitt Romney. The menu at the pricey New York City restaurant included frog legs and a rich serving of irony topped by a mound of hypocrisy.

Stephen Colbert Reacts to Donald Trump and Mitt Romney’s Dinner on The Late Show

After taking a week off for the Thanksgiving holiday, Stephen Colbert returned to The Late Show last night, and it didn’t take him too long to switch over from reflecting on all the turkey and pie he had eaten during his Thanksgiving dinner with his family to discussing another, much stranger meal. I’m talking, of course, about Mitt Romney’s dinner with President-Elect Donald Trump, as the two men were photographed together this week at a French restaurant in New York. Many people believe that Trump is considering Romney for the position of Secretary of State, but nothing has been made official

Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah and James Corden all teased Mitt Romney for having dinner with President-elect Donald Trump, a man he had criticized regularly.

Colbert started his Late Show monologue by pointing out that Trump hasn't had a news conference since July 27, leading into the Romney dinner by talking about how reporters covered it by getting a tip and then making a reservation.

"It's all about reservations, and I have a lot of them," joked Colbert. He commented on the menu options, saying that "billionaire of the people" Donald Trump ordered young garlic soup with thyme and sauteed frogs' legs.

Donald Trump had dinner with Mitt Romney on Tuesday night and the Internet had a field day.

The president-elect met with his potential pick for secretary of state at Jean Georges, the three-Michelin-star New York City restaurant inside the Upper West Side's Trump International Hotel and Tower. Reince Priebus, Trump's incoming White House chief of staff, also attended the four-course meal — which consisted of garlic soup with sauteed frog legs as appetizers, prime sirloin and lamb chops for the main course and chocolate cake for dessert.

Media Laps Up Donald Trump’s “Private” Mitt Romney Dinner

A flock of press infiltrated that “private dinner” between President-elect Donald Trump and former Dump-Trump spokesman/maybe next SoS Mitt Romney, resulting in the kind of breathless coverage usually reserved for fangirls’ One Direction sightings. Among them, CNN’s Jim Acosta got a “tip” as to when and where the dinner would take place, and made a reservation, then live-tweeted the get-together, announcing “Exclusive: Trump, Romney and Priebus arrive for dinner at Jean… »

After keeping a low profile for the past three weeks, Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance at Unicef’s 12th annual Snowflake Ball on Tuesday night — and no one was happier to see her than honoree Katy Perry. While President-elect Donald Trump was dining with Reince Priebus and Mitt Romney at Jean Georges, a three-Michelin star New York City restaurant inside his Trump International Hotel, Clinton was across town at the fundraising gala. Even “Roar” singer and outspoken Clinton suporter Perry (pictured above with Pamela Fiori and Caryl Stern) was surprised when Hillary took the stage to present her with the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian. »

Morning Joe” continued its feud with Donald Trump’s senior aide, Kellyanne Conway, on Monday morning by reporting that the president-elect is “furious” over comments she made regarding Mitt Romney — and Conway quickly called the report “sexist,” via text message. “Two sources at the top of the Trump transition team confirm to MSNBC that they spoke to the president-elect today and that Donald Trump was ‘furious’ at Kellyanne Conway’s comments on Sunday suggesting Trump betrayed his supporters by even considering Mitt Romney for a position in his cabinet,” co-host Mika Brzezinski said on Monday.

Last Week’S Review: ‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Love Is Not A Victory March, But Dave Chappelle’s Comeback Is

Last week, IndieWire wrote that Dave Chappelle’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” was so transcendently good, it felt like an outlier. It hit all of the right notes, politically and otherwise, at precisely the time audiences wanted to hear it the most. This week’s episode, anchored by beloved former “SNL” cast member Kristen Wiig, went a little differently.

The Thanksgiving episode was mostly fluff, and while it threw some political punches, it often felt as if the cast members were having an infinitely better time than the audience. So, what did work? Let’s take a closer look.

Host: Kristen Wiig

Kristen Wiig is a joy. That’s never a question; nearly everything she touches turns to gold. Her enthusiasm and appreciation for the 8H stage shone through in her performances all night, »

Donald Trump Complains About Post-Election 'SNL,' Alec Baldwin Responds: "Election Is Over"

20 November 2016 7:51 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Donald Trump was not a fan of Saturday Night Live's most recent episode, in which Alec Baldwin made his first post-election appearance.

"Google, what is Isis?" Baldwin's Trump character asked his computer to start the skit. "Siri, how do I kill Isis?"

The episode continued with Baldwin's Trump going back on most of his promises, saying "just leave it" to multiple policies in place that the real Trump campaigned on overturning. He also agreed with Jason Sudeikis' Mitt Romney that working together would never pan out (though the actual Romney is reportedly in the running for a cabinet »

Alec Baldwin, as Donald Trump, returned to Saturday Night Live for a cold open where the overwhelmed President-elect is now left with having to make good on his huge campaign promises.

As his remorseful campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, played by Kate McKinnon, brings military leaders and Gop backers to the Trump-owned Bedminster golf club in New Jersey, "Trump" is now faced with revealing his "secret plan" for defeating Isis – "Google, what is Isis?" he types into his laptop – and ensuring "all" the coal workers go back to the mines.

During her seven seasons on Saturday Night Live, Kristen Wiig crafted a series of unforgettable characters you either loved or hated. And depending on how you felt about the likes of, say, Lawrence Welk Show performer Dooneese or the #SorryNotSorry Gilly, there was cause for concern that her second stint as host would play out like a “greatest hits” compilation.
