What It Takes to Write ‘The Tonight Show’ (And The Writers’ 5 Favorite Sketches)

24 June 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

To appreciate how much work goes into writing a show like “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” ask a writer how many jokes they must write on any given day for any given segment. The answer is easily dozens, and that doesn’t include comedy pitches for celebrity guests and big sketch ideas like the show’s famed TV show parodies.

Gerard Bradford, a supervising writer for “Tonight Show,” broke down for IndieWire just how intense the production process can be. He also revealed some of his favorite sketches from the past year, and their more unusual inspirations.

What does having a regular schedule for specific desk bits like “Thank You Notes” mean for the rhythm of writing the show? 

It definitely helps – especially on a show like ours where we’re doing five hour-long shows a week, and each show can be very different content-wise on any given day. »

Donald Trump a Movie Mogul? The Little-Known Story of His Failed Attempt to Build a Studio

13 June 2016 11:41 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The spring of 2012, Donald Trump was at a crossroads. The Apprentice, his once hugely successful NBC reality show, had been off the air for two years, while its spinoff, Celebrity Apprentice, was slumping in the ratings. He still had Miss Universe, but Trump University had folded, as had his gambling, vodka and steak businesses. Not for the first time, Trump contemplated a run for the presidency but instead ended up endorsing Mitt Romney. Then, out of the blue, a prospect presented itself that the real estate baron couldn't resist, a chance to wield the sort of raw, fearsome power

David French Won’t Run Against Donald Trump in Presidential Election

6 June 2016 7:48 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

National Review columnist David French is not running for president as a third-party candidate, despite Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol hinting that he would have a good chance at stealing conservative votes from Donald Trump. “Here is a sentence I never thought I’d type: After days of prayer, reflection, and serious study of the possibilities, I am not going to run as an independent candidate for president of the United States,” French wrote on Sunday night. French says he gave it “serious thought,” but ultimately decided that he’s not the right candidate. “I’m on record saying that Mitt Romney could win, »

Stacey Dash Sounds Off on Hollywood's "Antagonistic" Treatment of Conservatives

5 June 2016 4:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Actor Stacey Dash had her first role at age 18, but her breakout performance came a decade later in Clueless. Her career took a sudden political turn when she tweeted support for Republican Mitt Romney over Democrat Barack Obama in 2012, with some fans and colleagues treating her endorsement as an act of heresy. The way Dash stood up to the backlash impressed Roger Ailes, and the CEO of Fox News Channel has since hired her as a pundit. Her book, There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative, comes out from Regnery on Monday. The Hollywood Reporter chatted

Hidden Messages Exposed: Are You Savvy to the Subliminal Messages in These Popular Kid Movies?

30 May 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Just because a movie is made to be appreciated by kids doesn't mean that it can't have a deeper, more subtle meaning too. That's one of the reasons that recent family movies like "Frozen," "Inside Out," and "Big Hero 6" appeal strongly to adult fans too. Many animated and live-action children's movies share the same surface-level themes, like the value of kindness, bravery, and believing in yourself. (Also that your Fairy Godmother is on her way -- maybe she's stuck in traffic.)

But if you dig a little deeper, some of those same movies also take a sly stance on social and political issues. A few have even been criticized for promoting a specific "agenda." Did you catch the subliminal messaging in these seven children's movies?

PBS Chief Paula Kerger Celebrates a Hectic Anniversary

27 May 2016 2:37 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paula Kerger’s 10th year as the CEO of PBS hasn’t been a quiet one. Already the public broadcaster said goodbye to one flagship series, “Downton Abbey,” and entered into shared custody of another, “Sesame Street.” It announced plans for a new channel devoted to children’s programming, and rolled out a new streaming-video platform to incentivize viewer donations. All this in a presidential-election year — a time when, recent history suggests, PBS is especially likely to be turned into a political football.

Against that backdrop, Kerger is tasked with guiding the public broadcaster through the same shifting media landscape that commercial television companies must navigate. But because of PBS’ unique business model and the challenges baked into it, Kerger, who joined PBS in 2006 and is the longest serving chief executive in its history, must innovate in unique ways — as she has had to do throughout her anniversary year.

After Trump's Latest Insults (Romney 'Walks Like a Penguin'), Obama at G-7 Summit Says World Leaders Are 'Rattled' by Gop Candidate

26 May 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

President Obama spoke out against Donald Trump at the G-7 summit in Japan on Thursday, saying that world leaders are shaken by the presumptive Gop nominee's campaign. "They're rattled by him and for good reason," Obama said. "Because a lot of the proposals that he's made display either ignorance of world affairs or a cavalier attitude or an interest in getting tweets and headlines instead of actually thinking through what is required to keep America safe." "They are surprised by him, not sure how to take some of his pronouncements," the president continued, adding that the world is watching the U. »

Donald Trump Makes Good on Pledge of $1M to Vets - Four Months Later

25 May 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After skipping a Gop debate in January and promising to raise money for veterans at a campaign rally instead, Donald Trump has finally come through on his pledge. At the rally in Des Moines, Iowa, on Jan. 28, Trump announced that he'd raised $6 million for the cause, including $1 million of his own money. However, Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, told The Washington Post last week that the total amount raised was actually around $4.5 million, blaming the disparity on unnamed big donors who allegedly backed out. As for the $1 million Trump promised to personally donate, The Washington Post reported that after a »

Mitt Romney Caves on Finding Anti-Trump Candidate

18 May 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Mitt Romney is giving up on the idea of finding someone — anyone — who could challenge Donald Trump’s presidential bid from the right. According to Yahoo News, the 2012 Gop nominee who lead the “Never Trump” effort doesn’t plan to run himself and is throwing in the towel on drafting a right-leaning alternative. “He thinks someone should run. That’s his role. That’s the beginning and end of it,” a Romney adviser told Yahoo. Another Romney ally told Yahoo that the former Massachusetts governor “is not now engaged in an effort to recruit a third-party candidate.” Also Read: Mitt Romney Slams Donald Trump. »

Donald Trump Says There's 'Nothing to Learn' from His Tax Returns: Here's Why Experts Disagree

16 May 2016 3:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Donald Trump has come under fire for his ongoing refusal to release his tax returns, with a blunt "It's none of your business." And even though he maintains that there's "nothing to learn" from the returns, experts say they contain plenty of information voters should know about the billionaire businessman.

O'Brien viewed Trump's federal tax returns approximately 10 years ago, after the real estate mogul sued O'Brien for libel.

Former Facebook employees who curated the site’s trending news feed claim the company has had a political bias against stories that might appeal to conservatives. In a report in Gizmodo, the former Facebook workers said colleagues would prevent stories about right-wing issues such as Cpac, Mitt Romney and Rand Paul from appearing in the influential section, despite the fact that such stories would organically trend among site users. “Depending on who was on shift, things would be blacklisted or trending,” the former employee told Gizmodo. “I’d come on shift and I’d discover that Cpac or Mitt Romney or Glenn Beck or. »
