Donald Trump Is 'Master Brander,' Says Bill Clinton on 'Colbert'
6 hours ago
Bill Clinton, once dubbed by President Obama as "Secretary of Explaining Stuff," dropped some knowledge on Tuesday's episode of The Late Show, telling Stephen Colbert why Donald Trump is holding strong in the polls. "Because he's a master brander," Clinton said, flatly. "And he's the most interesting character out there.
"And because he says something that overrides the ideological differences," he continued. "If you look at the first debate, a lot of those guys were competing for who could be the most politically correct on the answers. Trump says, 'Ok, »
Watch Jay Leno Return to 'Tonight Show' to Deliver Monologue
6 hours ago
Jimmy Fallon pulled a hamstring midway through The Tonight Show monologue Tuesday, but thankfully there was someone in the building who could serve as emergency substitute. Jay Leno returned to the show where he spent over 20 years as host to deliver a five-minute monologue of political humor.
"The election is getting nasty. Ralph Nader called Hillary a corporatist and a militarist. Isn't that incredible … Ralph Nader still alive," Leno joked. Leno also called a presidential showdown between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump the battle "between the Tortoise and the Bad Hair, »
Inside 'Red Oaks': An Eighties TV Show That's Not Ironic
6 October 2015 11:26 AM, PDT
"The Eighties were good to me," says Jennifer Grey, and considering she's best known for having the time of her life with Patrick Swayze in 1987's Dirty Dancing, that would make sense. "You know those people who rock that hairdo from the moment they got laid the most in their life? The Eighties are a bit like that for me."
'The Walking Dead': What to Know for Season 6
6 October 2015 9:42 AM, PDT
Sure, the West Coast prequel Fear the Walking Dead was a fine summer diversion (and may one day develop into a must-see show), but let's be honest: Zombie-lovers have mostly been drumming their rotting fingers since March, waiting for the original to come back.
This Sunday night, Rick and Carol and Glenn and the rest of Twd's ragtag band of survivors finally return, for the first of 16 Season Six episodes (to be split, as always, into two eight-episode batches). And while the fifth season ended with most of the characters »
'WWE Raw': New Day Rising
6 October 2015 8:22 AM, PDT
The easy pops for the Patriots and the cheap shots toward the Red Sox meant only one thing: WWE was back in Boston on Monday night.
In addition to the requisite hometown heat, the Massachusetts masses also got an eyeful of a returning Brock Lesnar, in addition to robust appearances from Boston's Sasha Banks and New England's most divisive son, John Cena. Mostly though, there was a lot of drama surrounding Kane's split personality, in addition to a big night for the New Day that suggested the company finally »
See 'Jackass' Gang Relive 15 Years of Wild Pranks, Scary Injuries
6 October 2015 7:30 AM, PDT
This month marks 15 years since Jackass introduced a feral group of fun-loving and foolhardy hooligans, hell-bent on destroying themselves (and some of their parents) for the pleasure of MTV viewers around the world. To celebrate, Rolling Stone invaded the homes of Johnny Knoxville, Steve-o, Bam Margera and, yes, Bam's folks to find out how it all started, what they think of its legacy now, and why Steve-o didn't close his mouth in the flying Porta Potty. Other Jackasses who participated in the video include Jason "Wee Man" Acuña, Ehren McGhehey, »
Julianne Moore, John Stamos Act in Taylor Swift Soap Opera on 'Corden'
6 October 2015 6:37 AM, PDT
James Corden took Taylor Swift's delightfully melodramatic lyrics to their logical conclusion on The Late Late Show Monday, using them as lines in a fake soap opera, The Bold and the Lyrical, co-starring Julianne Moore and John Stamos.
The sketch found Corden and Moore playing "James Cordone" and "Juliette Moore," two young, reckless lovers who take things way too far. The scene opens when Corden, donning a ridiculous black pompadour wig, saunters home one night with a weak explanation for his whereabouts: "I've been cruising. Can't stop, won't stop moving. »
Watch 'Broad City' Stars Have a Painful Spa Day
6 October 2015 6:14 AM, PDT
Broad City's Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer's day of relaxation goes a little awry with a waxing mishap. In the latest clip from their online series Hack Into Broad City, the pair struggle with their at-home, Diy spas.
Chatting with each other via web cam and wearing only towels, face masks and body wax, Abbi and Ilana kick off the clip by discussing the former's love for a certain American Horror Story star. "Does Jessica Lange just happen to be super sexy or do I love her because she's so sexy? »
Will Smith, DJ Jazzy Jeff Planning Summer 2016 World Tour
5 October 2015 1:11 PM, PDT
Will Smith's return to the music world will be much more than a cameo, as the actor revealed on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show that the Fresh Prince will stage a full-blown musical comeback in 2016. Smith dropped his first verse in over a decade when he appeared on Bomba Estereo's "Fiesta" remix, and the actor announced that he has more than 30 newly recorded songs – "six or seven that I really, really like, that I'm trying to get the ideas to come out right," Smith said – in the works. »
Danny Boyle: 'There May Be a Third '28 Days Later' Movie'
5 October 2015 11:37 AM, PDT
Talk to most any expert on pop-zombie culture and he or she will mention 28 Days Later..., Danny Boyle's 2002 contribution to the horror subgenre that helped renew interest in the idea of society crumbling under the threat of shambling (or this case, infected and sprinting) corpses. The missing link between the Romero-era Dead films and The Walking Dead — compare Cillian Murphy's awakening into a chaotic world to the beginning of the latter's pilot episode — it's a seminal zombie-apocalypse work. And as the director told Rolling Stone during an extensive »
Watch Scorsese, Jagger's 'Vinyl' Trailer: Sex, Drugs, Punk, Mafia
5 October 2015 8:21 AM, PDT
Sex, drugs, rock and roll – and violence – reign in HBO's new trailer for Vinyl, the upcoming drama series from Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter. The clip, soundtracked by the Stooges' proto-punk anthem "I Wanna Be Your Dog," previews the insanity behind the music business in late Seventies New York City, where punk and disco were evolving the industry.
"Think back to the first time you heard a song that made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up – made you want to dance or go out and kick somebody's ass, »
Watch John Oliver Explain Broken U.S. Mental Health System
5 October 2015 7:01 AM, PDT
"It seems there is nothing like a mass shooting to suddenly spark political interest in mental health," John Oliver says in his latest Last Week Tonight report, referencing the endless arguments about gun control/mental illness circulating after the Oregon tragedy, the 264th mass shooting of the year. Given that politicians like Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson and Donald Trump have pegged this shooting epidemic to a broken mental health system, Oliver obliges and examines the issue in depth.
But there's a catch: "The aftermath of a mass shooting might actually »
Top 5 TV: Trevor Noah's 'Daily Show,' Miley's 'SNL' Song of the Summer
5 October 2015 6:15 AM, PDT
We'd waited months, debated Twitter fouls and argued over the too-much-too-soon of it all — finally, last week, we got a taste of what a Trevor Noah-led Daily Show would actually be like. The South African comedian had the tall task of replacing Jon Stewart, who over a decade ago turned the politically savvy late-night show into a nightly ritual for many Americans (and more recently, a reliable source for "so-and-so destroys such-and-such" articles on the Internet). The first few nights mostly inspired a lot "he seems unflappable" comments — and »
