Donald Trump’s Inaugural Poem Is About Defeating a ‘Tyrant’ and Slavery

52 minutes ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Donald Trump may not have A-list performers at his inauguration this Friday, but at least he has a poem –one that many people already hate. According to the Independent, the poem was written by American Joseph Charles McKenzie and pays homage to the president-elect’s Scottish roots, from his mother’s side. It refers to a great hero who comes down from his tower (Trump Tower?) to snatch power from a “tyrant” and save the people from “slavery’s chains.” Does that make President Obama the tyrant in this situation? The poem, of course, is open to interpretation. Also Read: »

Chelsea Handler Blames the Kardashians for Donald Trump Election Win: 'We've Turned Into a Reality Show'

3 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Chelsea Handler believes the line between reality TV and politics has completely been blurred.

The Chelsea host, who has been vocal about her dissatisfaction with President-elect Donald Trump, continues to air her grievances in a new interview with Variety, where she makes the argument that celebrity culture may have contributed to the election results.

"They were treating him as an entertainer first," the 41-year-old TV host says. "It was a reality show. We’ve turned into a reality show."

"I blame the Kardashians, personally," Handler continues. "The beginning of the end was the Kardashians. The way these people have blown up and don’t go away — it’s surreal. Everyone is for sale."

Handler, a longtime Hillary Clinton advocate who felt the Democratic nominee was "absolutely" treated unfairly during the election, notes that we probably won't be seeing Trump on Handler's »

Celebrate Betty White’s Birthday With Her ‘SNL’ Death Metal Sketch (Video)

4 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It’s Betty White’s 95th birthday today, so let’s celebrate by jumping into the pit with her. Back in 2010, White hosted “Saturday Night Live” on Mothers’ Day weekend to rave reviews. One of the many highlights was a digital short in which the show’s cast sang “Thank You For Being A Friend” from her show, “The Golden Girls,” to show their appreciation for the elderly actress. White thanked Andy Samberg and company for their sweet rendition…but noted that she preferred her version. With that, White slipped on a ski mask and ripped into a death-metal cover »

Scott Baio to Liberals Scared of Trump’s Presidency: ‘Grow Up’

5 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scott Baio doesn’t have much sympathy for Hollywood liberals horrified by the prospect of a Donald Trump presidency.

“Grow up,” he says.

“I was nervous for eight years with Obama. I had to suck it up and deal with it. Do the same, and maybe your country will be a better place than it was.”

Jake Chessum for Variety

The “Charles in Charge” and “Happy Days” star is part of a small but vocal band of entertainment-industry conservatives. While most actors threw their support behind Hillary Clinton, Baio was an enthusiastic Trump surrogate, tweeting about the candidate and speaking on his behalf at the Republican National Convention.

“He’s a fighter, and he won’t let anything slide,” says Baio. “So many Republican nominees always feel like they want to stay above the fray, and they get maligned and crushed with negative publicity, and they don’t do anything about it. »

Lrm's 10 Most Anticipated Sundance Film Festival Premieres

5 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Later this week, Lrm will be attending this year’s Sundance Film Festival. While the festival tends to be a mixed bag of indie films, some will be picked up for distribution by studios and turned into mainstream hits, others will flounder and be lucky to get a VOD release. Even so, there’s no denying that Sundance is the real beginning of the year for most movie lovers as we’ll be talking about the movies below for the next 12 months.

Last year alone, Sundance held the premieres for The Birth of a Nation, Manchester by the Sea, Captain Fantastic, Love and Friendship, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Sing Street and many more films, some that appeared on The Weekend Warrior’s year-end Top 25. One or two of those might even receive Oscar nominations when they’re announced next week on January 24.

Bill Maher Previews How ‘Real Time’ Will Handle President Trump: ‘We’re Entering Uncharted Waters’

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

After doing 14 seasons of his scathing “Real Time” for HBO, Bill Maher had planned some tweaks. But in the wake of the presidential election, the outspoken comedian decided instead to delay some of his plans (though he’s sticking with a new set).

“Let’s not go too far with the changes, because what people are going to want right now is comfort food,” Maher tells Variety. “We already had the big changes — the big change is how fascism has come into power. That’s enough for people to absorb for awhile.”

Maher has never been afraid to blast politicians, pundits, and presidents. He spurred controversy when he hosted ABC’s late-night “Politically Incorrect” that largely led to the demise of that program, and continues to do so today. And he has tangled with Trump before. The real-estate mogul sued him in 2013 after Maher vowed on NBC’s “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” that he would »

Rob Schneider Ripped for Lecturing John Lewis About Mlk

16 January 2017 12:48 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Rob Schneider had a dream about spreading a message of unity. Unfortunately it turned into a nightmare once that message hit social media. “Saturday Night Live” alum Schneider was eviscerated on Twitter on Monday after he used Martin Luther King Jr. Day as an opportunity to lecture Georgia Rep. John Lewis. “Rep. Lewis. You are a great person. But Dr. King didn’t give in to his anger or his hurt. That is how he accomplished & won Civil Rights,” Schneider tweeted on Monday, in an apparent reference to Lewis boycotting president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration and calling the legitimacy of Trump’s election. »

Scottish Newspaper Compares Donald Trump’s Inauguration to a ‘Twilight Zone’ Episode

16 January 2017 9:45 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If the last few months have taken on an air of unreality for you, you’re far from alone. Scotland’s Sunday Herald newspaper has leaned into this with an item in its TV listings about this Friday’s presidential inauguration comparing the event to an episode of “The Twilight Zone” — not that such blockbuster talents as 3 Doors Down were ever featured on the classic anthology series. Here’s the full blurb, which comes from Damien Love:

TV Ratings: Packers-Cowboys, Steelers-Chiefs Draw Huge Audiences

16 January 2017 9:36 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Updated: The regular season may have been a nadir for NFL ratings, but the NFL playoffs are shaping up to be big, with Fox’s afternoon Nfc divisional game once again leading the way.

Fox’s Sunday telecast of the Green Bay Packers-Dallas Cowboys brawl, which dashed hopes of a hate-watchers’-dream Cowboys-Patriots Super Bowl when the Packers edged the Cowboys out 34-31, drew a massive average audience of 48.5 million, the most-watched divisional round game in history; and above last year’s Nfc Championship (45.7) and just a hair below 2015’s (49.8 million).

The game pulled in a 28.2 overnight household rating. For perspective, the record-shattering Game 7 of this year’s World Series, which ended up drawing 40 million viewers, had an overnight household rating of 25.2.

NBC’s nighttime Afc match-up between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Kansas City Chiefs was also a big winner, drawing an average audience of 37.1 million. It had pulled in a 21.9 overnight household rating, a »

Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda now is turning his attention to fictional presidents.

Incoming press secretary Sean Spicer appeared on NBC’s “Today” show on Monday and bashed the network’s “Saturday Night Live” during the interview as “disappointing.” “It was not funny; it was mean-spirited,” Spicer told NBC’s Tamron Hall. “And it’s gone from being a show you could sit back and get a good laugh out of to being something that’s frankly mean and bad television.” On Saturday night, “SNL” attacked Trump’s first press conference since winning the election and nothing was off limits — not even golden showers.

‘Sherlock’ Review: ‘The Final Problem’ Proves to Be A Problematic Season Finale

15 January 2017 6:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Week’S Review: “The Lying Detective’ Gives Us Sherlock’s Most Terrifying Villain Yet

[Spoilers follow for Season 4, Episode 3, “The Final Problem.”]

Season 4 of Sherlock has galloped by — which is easy enough, when the seasons are only three episodes long — but it ends on an oddly final note. Although cast and crew insist that this isn’t necessarily the end, Steven Moffatt and Mark Gatiss wrap up their 13th episode on an elegiac note, musing on the legend that is Sherlock and Watson.

It’s just a shame the rest of the episode was such a mess, really.

Don’t Look Now, Mycroft

The opening of the episode is pure Gatiss — in what seems like it must be a dream sequence but isn’t, Mycroft is haunted by the voice of his sister (represented by what we assume is a little girl but is actually a small man in a wig), a clown, and portraits that weep blood. »

Donald Trump Again Attacks ‘Saturday Night Live’: ‘Always a Complete Hit Job’

15 January 2017 4:33 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In a practice that’s almost become routine, President-elect Donald Trump has fired back at NBC and “Saturday Night Live” after this weekend’s episode that parodied his Wednesday press conference.

“.@NBCNews is bad but Saturday Night Live is the worst of NBC. Not funny, cast is terrible, always a complete hit job. Really bad television!,” Trump tweeted on Sunday afternoon.

.@NBCNews is bad but Saturday Night Live is the worst of NBC. Not funny, cast is terrible, always a complete hit job. Really bad television!

His tweet comes just a day after Alec Baldwin reprised his popular Trump impression, taking on such subjects as Obamacare and his conflicts of interest. The cold open also poked fun at the “golden showers” claim in the unverified Russian dossier that was released this week, letting loose a stream of not-so-subtle urination puns.
