Seth Meyers took on the author of the anti-Hillary Clinton book, Peter Schweizer, Thursday night. “There are only three kinds of books that still sell — books about wizards, books about bondage, and books about Clintons…which is why the next book I’m writing is “50 Shades of Bill: Prisoner of Azkaban.” Meyers’ noted the author of “Clinton Cash” is biased against Clinton, having previously worked as a consultant for the Bush administration, foreign policy advisor to Sarah Palin, and author of several books negative about liberals.

On the heels of Louis C.K.'s recent tweet-centric Sarah Palin apology, the comedian shed some light on why he's since left the microblogging platform. Visiting the Opie & Jim Norton Show, C.K. said that tweeting didn't make him feel good, and he didn't like the amount of people who had access to his self-described subpar material. C.K. also talked about his pot use and how it almost led to a very weird, very not-funny season five of Louie. All this to say, it doesn't seem like C.K.'s going to return to Twitter or frequent pot use anytime soon. Cue bagpipes.Here's what he told Opie. About Twitter: It didn't make me feel good, it made me feel bad instead, so I stopped doing it. I just thought, This thing doesn't make me feel good. Every time I say anything on here, I wish I hadn't said it. »

Is Louis C.K. turning into a big softie? The Louie star revealed today on The Howard Stern Show that he recently apologized to Sarah Palin in person for some profane tweets he wrote about her after knocking a few back on a flight he took in 2010—and he admits that was totally out of character for him! The apology, that is, not the rough tweets. "Something came over me emotionally, and I said, 'Well, I owe you an apology,'" C.K. recalled running into the politician turned author and TV pundit at the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special taping. "I've never in a million years apologized for anything I've said." And apparently this was a one-time »
Louis C.K. apologized to Sarah Palin for that Twitter rant he went on back in 2010. "I wrote some really horrible tweets about her," he told Howard Stern Wednesday. "I was writing what I felt was comedic poetry." Some of the worst of those tweets included, "I want to rub my father's cock all over Sarah Palin's fat tits," and another said she had a "family of chinese poor people living in her cunt hole." Well, his bad! Apparently Palin came up to him at the SNL 40 after-party and told him, "Hey, I think you're terrific." Faced with an awkward, haunting sense of guilt, C.K. apologized:Something came over me emotionally and I said, Well I owe you an apology. I've never in a million years apologized for anything I've said ... Fuck anybody else who's offended, but here's the person right in front of me. I'm not an insult »

Nearly five years after going on a Twitter tirade against Sarah Palin, Louis C.K. did something rare: apologize. Backstage at February's Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special, the comedian apologized to the former Alaska governor for a 2010 Twitter rant in which he tweeted a number of nasty things about her. Among the offending tweets: "I want to rub my father's cock all over Sarah Palin's fat tits." In an interview with Howard Stern, C.K. said the flurry of tweets came as he was drinking on a plane, and back when he didn't quite understand how Twitter worked.

David Letterman looked fidgety, as he often does, listening to Al Franken compliment him. Although the comedy writer/performer-turned-u.S. senator from Minnesota doesn’t do many talkshows, Franken told the CBS host he wanted to pay homage to Letterman “before you become an eccentric recluse” after he retires from “The Late Show” on May 20.
“I have enormous respect for you, not just as a comedian,” Franken said, lauding Letterman as a great broadcaster, a caretaker of the timeslot, and someone who changed comedy.
Franken is right on most counts. Letterman offered a new look and feel to what could happen on latenight talkshows — in a way that has greatly influenced the generation that followed — and it also seems likely that he’ll emulate his idol, Johnny Carson, by riding into the sunset after a staggeringly long run (33 years in Letterman’s case, between NBC and CBS, vs. 30 for Carson »

Hillary Clinton is much more than even a 2016 presidential candidate. She's a pop culture touchstone and the "Saturday Night Live" legacy of Hillary impersonations proves it: Clinton has been imitated by nine different performers going all the way back to Jan Hooks. To celebrate this indelible sketch character, let's rank all nine portrayals of the former New York senator and pick the ultimate "SNL" Hillary. Honorable mentions: Drew Barrymore and Rachel Dratch Both Drew Barrymore and Rachel Dratch played Clinton in very brief moments on "SNL." Barrymore played a young Clinton during a 2004 hosting stint and Dratch chimed in with a space-age Hillary in a "State of the Galaxy" sketch from 2006. While they are fun anomalous versions of the former Secretary of State, they aren't representative enough to factor in on this list. 7. Janeane Garofalo During the infamous '94-'95 season of "SNL," Michael McKean and Janeane Garofalo took turns as Bill and Hillary. »

Pre-credit sequence. When we left things, Rodney had just been blindsided by Joaquin's eviction. This won't go well. Escameca returns and Rodney is simmering. "It's the game," Joe says, philosophically and still in the game. Tyler is the first to express his disappointment and to praise the Blue Collar tribe for its Rodney-excluding unity. It falls to Mike to attempt to coddle Rodney. "Hopefully he doesn't take it too personal," Mike tells us, suggesting he's never actually met Rodney. Mike takes a walk with Rodney and explains that their perception was that Joaquin was reeling him in. "I was working on a fugazi fake alliance," Rodney protests, adding that he thought he was Michael Jordan and now he's feeling like Luc Longley. "I'm acting, bro. I'm putting on my De Niro," Rodney insists. [He may have referred to his "dinero," but we all know who or what he meant.] "Now, all of a suddenly, I've gotta be Mike's bitch till we get to the Merge, »

Republican ratchetness is a serious ailment that affects dozens of politicians each year. It’s currently hitting Gov. Mike Pence (Indiana) hard, given his state’s controversial religious freedom law that basically means business owners can turn away Lgbt customers because the Bible tells them so. It’s also taking a toll on embattled Rep. Aaron Schock (Illinois) who resigned from his House seat over an ethics scandal. Texas Senator Ted Cruz recently announced his presidential bid, which means his ratchetness is just beginning — he did call climate change activists “flat-Earthers” after all. However, this stuff is just child’s play compared to what other right-winged suits have done in the past. (We’re looking at you, Mark Sanford.)
From sex scandals to homophobic comments, these politicians represent the essence of Republican ratchetry: ignorance, stupidity, and just a bad moral compass. Isn’t it ironic these conservatives are engaging in some very un-conservative behavior? »

Now that Veep: The Complete Third Season is being released on DVD and Blu-ray we get to see Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and her team of misfits at their truly scariest, campaigning to become the next president of the United States of America. Stupidity, ignorance and underhand tactics are about to reach critical mass. While Meyer may not have been based on Sarah Palin in previous episodes, it is noticeable that at times during this third season she has moments of going full Palin. If there was ever a season where she was to show how unconnected to the “real” people she is, this is the one. The scary thing is the worse she becomes the most successful her political career seems to be. Inevitably this leads to typical disasters that continue to make her a funny character, »

Duck Dynasty: The Musical is officially theater-bound! Considering Broadway is pretty gay -- or at least, gay-friendly -- and considering what duck patriarch Phil Robertson has said in the past about homosexuality leading to bestiality, it may seem like an odd fit.
Until you find out it’s actually a Vegas musical. That makes more sense.
The Duck Commander Musical is a “modern-day Beverly Hillbillies story” about a “backwoods family” that strikes it rich. Don’t expect a satire or tell-all either, the Roberston family had script and casting approval.
Producer Michael David, whose credits include Jersey Boys, told The New York Times, “The show will end up challenging the views and assumptions of people across the political spectrum, more than most theater does.”
Now that Bristol Palin's got a man ... she has no need for a house -- at least not the one she's been living in because she's unloading her half a million dollar home near Sarah Palin. Real estate sources tell TMZ ... Bristol is rarely home now that she's all hooked up with her new fiance, Medal of Honor winner Sgt. Dakota Meyer -- so she doesn't need the 3-bed, 3.5-bath 3,200 sq. ft. pad anymore. »

The closing night of PaleyFest 2015 was an occasion to get freaky, as the cast of “American Horror Story: Freak Show” gathered with fans to celebrate the success of the past season and to look ahead to “Ahs: Hotel.”
Prior to the panel, Ryan Murphy’s band of merry players walked the red carpet to the tune of hundreds of screaming fans. Some of the stars even revealed which possible season themes would most terrify them.
“I was thinking they should do ‘American Horror Story: Space,’” said Finn Wittrock, who played the twisted rich boy Dandy on “Freak Show.” Why? “Because that’s terrifying. No oxygen, no sound, dead in a second. It would be a short one.”
Sarah Paulson, who has starred on all four seasons of the anthology show, had also given some thought to how she’d live out her nightmare onscreen. She envisioned a »
