Kid Rock Shows Donald Trump How to Condemn Nazis With Style (Video)
Donald Trump, take note; this is how to condemn bigotry. Kid Rock — who signaled a possible run for U.S. Senate in his home state of Michigan earlier this year — kicked off his concert in Grand Rapids on Wednesday with a fiery speech, taking aim at Nazis, the Kkk and the Black Lives Matter movement with salty-tongued gusto. Taking the stage to the strains of “Hail to the Chief” and riling up the crowd from behind an eagle seal-bedecked podium, the “Devil Without a Cause” musician declared, “Call me a racist because I’m not PC, as if you have to.

The 15 Greatest TV Presidents of All Time, Ranked

The 15 Greatest TV Presidents of All Time, Ranked
On-screen presidents are an unusual collection because they don’t always reflect what we want from a leader. (Though these days, it seems that consensus is fracturing more than ever.)

Some are abrasive, some are diabolical. Others are worse at their job than you would expect. So when picking the “best” TV versions of U.S. presidents, it’s just as important to consider what these individuals brought to the position that previous inhabitants did not, for good or ill.

Despite the occasional missteps of these fictional Commanders-in-Chief, many of them do represent the theoretical ideals that a national leader should uphold: a clear grasp of the office’s privilege, an understanding of the ramifications of key policy decisions, and the power that words can have to send a message to the entire nation.

‘Scandal’ Finale: New President Dishes on Cliffhangers and ‘Heartbreaking’ Final Season (Spoilers)
Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watched the two-hour season finale episode of “Scandal,” which aired on Thursday, May 18.

Hail to the Chief: Madam President Mellie Grant has officially been sworn into office on “Scandal.” Though that historic moment was inevitable, there were plenty of shocking developments in Thursday night’s Season 6 finale, which will have a major impact on what happens in the seventh-and-final season of the Shonda Rhimes drama.

What are those new developments? Well, for starters, Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Olivia (Kerry Washington) will head up a new — and improved? — B613.

And Cyrus (Jeff Perry) might not have made the actual call to hire Frankie’s killer, but he’s the one who planted the

‘The Leftovers’: The 9 Happiest Moments You Might Have Forgotten in All the Darkness
No one who has watched even 30 seconds of “The Leftovers” would tell you it’s a cheery show. HBO’s ambitious, poignant, and periodically gut-wrenching drama often chases one devastating moment with another, occasionally pausing to give the viewer a brief, teary respite — if we’re lucky.

Enter Season 3. In any given episode of “The Leftovers,” tears are a sure thing, but there are scenes that spark tears of joy. From Nora’s awkwardly endearing comebacks (“Fuck your daughter!”) to Kevin’s attempts at family bonding to a giant blow-up doll of Gary Busey, the laughs are there, if you can smile through the pain.

David Crow Apr 3, 2017

Carrie's gameplan takes an unexpected shift in a Homeland episode that continues to keep us on uneven footing...

This review contains spoilers.

6.10 The Flag House

There was a moment midway through the latest episode of Homeland where the president-elect, the soon-to-be most powerful person on the planet, paid an unannounced visit to Carrie Mathison’s brownstone. With all the subtlety of “Hail to the Chief,” Elizabeth Keane acts like a concerned, mentoring figure to Carrie while having her secret service agents turn the screws of pressure simply by turning an about-face towards the door. “Privacy” means the bodyguards pretend they’re studying the interior decoration and glasswork of a door, and friendly concern means “why can’t you throw your former bosses under the bus, again?”

Stephen Colbert’s ‘Late Show’ Swaps Presidential Portraits After Inauguration (Video)
Donald Trump is now the President of the United States, so it’s time for government locations to remove their portraits of Barack Obama from their walls. But “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” put a little spin on what images might go up in their place. In a short skit played to a melancholy piano rendition of “Hail to the Chief,” “The Late Show” showed people replacing Obama portraits with some very interesting images of Trump. Like, a picture a judge put up on his bookshelf showed Trump advertising his failed Trump Steaks, while another photo put up by an.

Inside the Offices of the ‘Late Late Show’ Executive Producers
It’s been just over a year since the launch of “The Late Late Show,” and executive producers Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe have settled comfortably into their adjoining offices in CBS’ Television City — well, with the help of their wives, who helped them decorate. While they bought their personal touches to it, they also wanted to pay tribute to the previous occupant. “I’m very aware this was Peter Lasally’s office, who is for us like the Godfather of late-night,” says Winston who inherited the office of the legendary producer. “He left this office on December the 23rd and we came in on the 1st of January, which is why I’ve got a picture of him above my desk.”
