Welcome to Outrage Watch, HitFix's semi-regular rundown of entertainment-related kerfuffles. Not anxious enough already? Get your fix of righteous indignation below, and stay posted for outrage updates throughout the week. "Sesame Street" became the big newsmaker on Thursday morning when it was announced that Sesame Workshop, the non-profit organization behind the series, had struck a deal with HBO that will see the next five seasons of the iconic children's TV program airing exclusively on the premium cabler (including its "multiplex channels" HBO Go, HBO On Demand and the new internet-only Svod service HBO Now) for a nine-month window before airing in reruns on public-access PBS stations, where it has made its first-run home since 1969. The upside? PBS stations will now be able to air the show for free, and -- according to HBO and Sesame Workshop -- the deal will additionally allow the latter to "produce almost twice as much »

Stephen Colbert is baaack! CBS just dropped some new promos for Colbert's latest gig, taking over "The Late Show" for David Letterman.

Stephen Colbert recruited Mitt Romney for a new “Late Show” promo that aired Sunday during CBS’ “60 Minutes,” along with two other short TV spots for the network’s revamped version of “The Late Show.” “I’ll talk about the news, tell jokes and have fascinating conversations with celebrities, athletes, musicians and, of course, politicians,” he said before stumbling upon the former presidential candidate who is hungry for pancakes. Colbert previously hosted Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report,” on which he played a die-hard conservative. Romney secured the Republican party’s presidential nomination before losing to democrat Barack Obama in the 2012 general election. »

Stephen Colbert, we have missed you so. The premiere of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is just over a month away, and now we finally have some promos! The spots are short and sweet, but so very Colbert-ish that they feel just right. One even includes an appearance from former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, because that was something that had apparently been missing from our lives. Colbert also pulls out a card trick or two, a backpack, and the trapper keeper that all the kids will be clamoring for this back-to-school season. Watch the promos above and below! These promos aren't the first bits of promotion the show has released so »
Stephen Colbert takes over as The Late Show host on September 8th, and he's released a trio of promo clips to hype the new CBS era. "I'll talk about the news, tell jokes and have fascinating conversations with celebrities, athletes, musicians and, of course, politicians," he says in the first video, which pans to reveal a man who looks exactly like Mitt Romney. Colbert tells the former presidential hopeful that he does a "great Mitt Romney" – that's because it's actually him. "Where are my pancakes?" the politician demands. "I was told there'd be pancakes. »
David Letterman is irreplaceable, but Stephen Colbert is filling his shoes, and desk, as host of "The Late Show" starting September 8. CBS just started airing new "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" promos, with three brief spots appearing over the weekend.
Here are the new promos, including one with the real Mitt Romney and his pancake promise disappointment:
That was not the card we were thinking of, but totally agree that that's a sweet Trapper Keeper.
It'll be interesting to see how the late night world looks after this latest shift. There have already been a lot of changes this year. Craig Ferguson left "The Late Late Show" and James Corden stepped in, with his very Jimmy Fallon-like games and viral videos. David Letterman retired and now Stephen Colbert is ready to debut. And Jon Stewart is getting ready to leave on August 6, with Trevor Noah poised to take his »

As the premiere of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” fast approaches, CBS has offered another glimpse at Colbert’s new hosting gig with three new promos, released Sunday.
In one, Colbert begins giving a preview of the new “Late Show,” promising “fascinating conversations” with celebrities, athletes, musicians and politicians. In fact, someone who looks eerily like former presidential candidate Mitt Romney (because he is Mitt Romney) appears.
“Wow, you do a great Mitt Romney,” Colbert compliments.
After Romney informs him that he is, in fact, Romney, Colbert replies: “That’s it. Stay in character.”
In another, Colbert has fun with both magic and math, and show off his Charlie Rose trapper keeper in another.

In the first promo, Colbert astounds and amazes (2 percent of, me included) us with a card trick. In another, he shows how he is ready to go “back to school,” complete with a Trapper Keeper plastered with the face of his newsman “dreamboat.”
And in the last spot, Mitt Romney puts in a cameo — whether Colbert believes it or not. »
Can you imagine hanging out with funny ladies Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer? Well, that's a reality for the women who spent time with the two stars at the beach this week. On Thursday, Amy took to social media to share a couple pictures of the pair's day out. In one, she and Jennifer are riding on a WaveRunner, and she called J Law a "#maniac." (Flashback to the time Amy got so excited when Jennifer said her name, nominating her for The Bachelorette!) In another photo, they're all smiles alongside some friends, and Amy jokingly made a Mitt Romney reference with her caption: "Binders of women." Keep reading to see more pictures of the pair hanging out together, then check out why we love Amy Schumer, plus hilarious pictures of Jennifer Lawrence being a fangirl. »
Just one day after South Carolina governor Nikki Haley signed a bill into law banning the Confederate flag from Capitol grounds, the flag was removed from the State House on Friday morning. The contentious Civil War symbol was taken down by a group of honor guards from the South Carolina highway patrol in front of hundreds of citizens, both for and against the movement. They folded it and delivered it into the hands of a museum director. The flag was carried by Confederate troops from 1861 to 1865 and has flown at the state capitol for 54 years. It has been at the center of an emotional debate since the massacre of nine people at a Charleston church in June; many Charleston residents lobbied for the flag to be taken down from the Capitol building - it is widely considered a symbol of slavery and racism, while others praise it as a representation of Southern heritage and pride. »
Mmmm … golden waves of hair! The Simpsons has never shied away from making political jokes, whether it was Mr. Burns endorsing Mitt Romney or vote fixing in Springfield. The latest target is none other than presidential hopeful Donald Trump and his famous head of hair. In a new teaser for the long-running comedy’s 27th season, Homer gets paid to stump for the business mogul, and before he knows it, is drawn into The Donald’s flowing tresses. “Oh, it’s so wispy! It’s a gravity-defying combover,” the Simpson [...] »
Megyn Kelly is bucking the conventional wisdom of what it means to be a Fox News anchor. The take-no-prisoners newswoman isn’t afraid to throw hardballs at Republicans. She recently lectured Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul over his penchant for arguing with female reporters. She poked Jeb Bush about whether he would have invaded Iraq in 2003. She cornered Mike Huckabee for saying it was trashy for women to swear in public. Last year, she told Dick Cheney, “History has proven that you got it wrong” on Iraq. On Election Night 2012, she dared to question Karl Rove for claiming that Barack Obama hadn’t won Ohio, and it went viral.
Just as surprisingly, she says she wouldn’t brawl with a certain Democratic presidential candidate if she landed an exclusive with her. “I think Hillary Clinton could handle me — easily,” Kelly says on a recent afternoon in her Manhattan office. “That would be epic television, »

“The Republican 2012 primary debates” – if you’re in need of a quick, cheap laugh at the expense of our nation’s plutocrats, you could always type those words into YouTube. Who could forget such classic moments as Mitt Romney trying to make a $10,000 wager with Rick Perry? Now, though, with Donald “You’re Fired” Trump being the […]

In 2012, many liberal media hosts gleefully referred to the Republican primary field as the “clown car,” as everyone from a pizza chain CEO to a previously disgraced congressman took turns atop the polls before Mitt Romney ultimately won the nomination. Three years later, the media has seemingly chosen its ringleader for 2016’s version of the Gop circus: Donald Trump, a.k.a. the self-proclaimed “greatest jobs president God ever created.” Trump’s already shown a knack for bashing his Republican opponents as career politicians who are all talk, no action, but a more interesting dynamic will be whether he can turn widespread media mockery into. »

Updated with video: Remember Jeb Bush — the guys whose Gop Potus run announcement we all forgot about 20 hours later, when Donald Trump announced the American Dream is dead so he’s making a play for the White House because he’s really rich and America needs a leader who wrote The Art Of the Deal? Jeb slow-jammed the news on NBC’s Tonight Show, tonight. He’s no Brian Williams. He’s no Barack Obama either, slow-jam wise, though he’s definitely on par with Mitt Romney, who’s… »
Over the weekend, in advance of her first rally of the year, hosted on Roosevelt Island, presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton released an official campaign playlist. It does not include “Supermodel,” as previously recommended, but there are some good choices, including Katy Perry’s “Roar” and John Legend’s “Wake Everybody Up.” As CNN points out, all tracks on the 14-song playlist were released post-1999. Wise move. When Mitt Romney released his campaign playlist in 2012, it was riddled with music for old people, and we all know how that turned out. Listen to the full #Hillary2016 playlist below. »

Jeb Bush is hitting the late-night circuit in his bid to move into the White House. The former Florida governor will make an appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” on June 16.

The Performer | Sam Heughan
The Show | Outlander
The Episode | “To Ransom a Man’s Soul” (May 30)
The Performance | You can just imagine the thoughts that must’ve crossed the mind of Outlander‘s Sam Heughan upon hearing his character’s trajectory at the end of the season: “I’m going to do what? And they’re going to show every minute of it?” Indeed, Jamie’s rape by Black Jack Randall in the finale was a nasty, graphic, terrifying violation rendered heartbreakingly honest by Heughan’s performance. The fearless actor shifted Jamie from defiant to resigned to seemingly removed from the proceedings, »
It's official, folks, America has another presidential hopeful joining the 2016 race: enter Rick Santorum. "Today I announce my candidacy for President of the United States!" the former Republican senator from Pennsylvania, who lost the Gop nomination to Mitt Romney in 2012, tweeted on Wednesday. "Join me at http://www.ricksantorum.com and let's take back America!" The conservative politician, who, on his campaign website says he is "committed to restoring the American dream for hardworking Americans," was the runner up during the Republican primary race four years ago. At the time, before the Josh Duggar molestation »
