Stephen Colbert Compares Trump’s Nuclear Plan to the Cold War

25 February 2017 3:19 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Our last President won the Nobel Prize for carefully decommissioning our nukes, while our new President wants ‘everybody-nobody’ to have them.  That’s essentially the main subject of Stephen Colbert’s monologue last night on The Late Show.   Colbert begins by joking about the 35th day that Trump has been in office, but really calling it the 35th year because that’s essentially what it’s felt like for many of us. But the main topic was Trump’s desire to expand the United States nuclear arsenal.  Trump was quoted as saying he wants to make it “top of the pack.”   Exactly what Trump meant

Two new categories have been added to the 2017 Emmy Awards race: Music supervision and casting in a reality series.

The decision was made Thursday night during a meeting of the Television Academy’s board of governors.

Among the other changes approved was the split of cinematography for a single-camera series into two sub-categories, for hourlong and half-hour series.

Several award changes were made in the interactive realm: Outstanding Interactive Program (Existing category award) Outstanding Original Interactive Program (New category award) Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media Within A Scripted Program (New category award) Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media Within An Unscripted Program (New category award) Outstanding Innovation In Interactive Programming (New juried award)

 

More expansive changes were announced last year, including the addition of several categories recognizing short-form series, as well as the expansion of the Creative Arts Emmys into two awards shows.

A full list of the rules changes will be available at the Emmys »

John Waters Wants You to Wreck Things From the Inside in ‘Make Trouble’ Book Trailer — Watch

23 February 2017 11:01 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

John Waters, the director of “Hairspray” and “Pink Flamingos,” gave an invigorating commencement speech to the graduates at the Rhode Island School of Design two years ago. The essence of the speech was to “make trouble.” He goes on to define what type of people you have to make trouble for: the spiritually poor. Encouraging then and encouraging now, Waters’ speech, which has been transcribed into a book titled “Make Trouble,” will find its way into bookstores on April 11.

Kelly Ripa Accidentally Let Her 13-Year-Old Son Bring a Book About a Stripper Pole to School

23 February 2017 7:33 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Kelly Ripa had a major bone to pick with Stephen Colbert when she stopped by The Late Show on Wednesday. During the show, the mother of three explained to the host that his book, I Am A Pole (And So Can You!), actually ended up getting her 13-year-old son, Joaquin, in trouble when he brought it to school to be read aloud by his teacher. The book, which is about a pole trying to find its purpose, actually features a scene at a strip club. Not only did the teacher quickly send it back with her son, but Kelly even got a personal note about how inappropriate it was. Watch her recount the hilarious moment above.

Stephen Colbert forecasts a Kid Rock vs. Ted Nugent battle for Mi Senate seat

23 February 2017 7:28 AM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

The Devil Without a Cause vs. The Nuge? Until now, Kid Rock and Ted Nugent appeared to be peas in a right-wing pod, with the former making no secret of his support for President Donald Trump and the latter famously telling former President Barack Obama to “suck on my machine gun”. But the two could be headed for a possible collision, as Stephen Colbert opined on Wednesday night’s The Late Show, amid murmurs of both musicians potentially considering a run at one of Michigan’s seats for the U.S. Senate in 2018.

Watch Stephen Colbert on Kid Rock Versus Ted Nugent Michigan Senate Race

23 February 2017 6:42 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Stephen Colbert considered the ridiculousness of a possible 2018 Michigan Senate race that included candidates Kid Rock and Ted Nugent on The Late Show Wednesday.

So far, Kid Rock's name has been floated by a Tea Party activist, according to the Detroit Free Press. While Nugent told The Daily Caller he wouldn't rule out running for the state office. Colbert noted that such a race – wholly possible in Trump's America – could be close considering it would "really split the Uncle-who-sells-you-fireworks vote." 

Colbert then introduced another Michigan hard rocker considering a Senate run: Shrieking Joe, »

Stephen Colbert is bringing precious school memories to families one stripper pole book at a time.  During an appearance on The Late Show, Kelly Ripa recalled one particular instance when the comedian wreaked a touch of havoc on her son's school life thanks to his 2012 book, I Am A Pole (And So Can You!).  "I have a bone to pick with you about a book you sold on our show," she told him Wednesday night. As the mother of three explained, Colbert appeared on her morning show once to promote his children's book.

George Clooney Admits He "Chased" Amal For "Many Months" After They First Met

22 February 2017 10:33 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

George Clooney was once one of Hollywood's hottest bachelors, who swore he would never get married again (he was married to actress Talia Balsam from 1989 to 1993). That is, until Amal Alamuddin (now Amal Clooney) came along. George first laid eyes on the human rights attorney at his home in Lake Como, Italy, in 2013. During a previous appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, the 55-year-old actor revealed, "We met in Lake Como. She was a friend of a friend who came to visit and then I chased her for many months, calling and writing, those kinds of things." George also admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that "from the minute we met, we just sort of felt like we were going to be together." He ended up proposing six months later, and even though he had it all planned out, it ended up being "one of those horrible moments," he told Ellen. »

22 February 2017 10:26 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Donald Trump's first 100 days in office continue to be good for Stephen Colbert's ratings.

‘Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ in Ratings Rebound Thanks to Political Climate

22 February 2017 10:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

August was not the hottest month for Stephen Colbert. Ratings for CBS’ “The Late Show” — which had been on a steady slide since shortly after Colbert’s debut as host in 2015 — hit a new low, with the monthly total-viewer average slipping below 2 million for the first time. If its trajectory continued, Colbert’s “Late Show,” already far behind Jimmy Fallon and NBC’s “The Tonight Show,” was in danger of falling into third place in the ratings wars below ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Fallon appeared primed for a long reign as king of late night.

Six months later, Colbert has the industry watching the throne.

The former host of Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” is on a streak that just recently seemed unthinkable — three straight weeks of topping Fallon. After airing reruns the week of Jan. 23, “The Late Show” returned Jan. 30 and averaged slightly more than 2.77 million total viewers for the week, edging »

Stephen Colbert Pokes Fun at Trump's Nonexistent Sweden Incident: "Never Fjorget"

20 February 2017 6:05 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

The Late Show's Stephen Colbert was sure to honor the imaginary victims of the "Bowling Green Massacre," and he's back to do the same with the faux terror incident in Sweden.

After President Donald Trump spoke last week at a rally about "what's happening last night in Sweden," when, in fact, nothing happened, Colbert responded.

Mocking the fact that Trump seemed to have misheard or misunderstood news reported on Fox News, Colbert said, "I guess Trump only accepts intelligence reports with the logo, 'As Seen on TV.'"

"In fact, Sweden's crime rate has fallen since 2005," he »

Ben Affleck's Kid Thinks His Dad Really Is Batman!

20 February 2017 1:41 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

With all the negative press that Ben Affleck has received lately regarding his role in the Dceu, if this story doesn't put a smile on your face, I don't know what will.

Matt Damon appeared alongside Will Arnett (Lego Batman) on “The Late Show with James Corden" Thursday. Damon was asked who his favorite Batman ever was, and his reply which included the opinion of Affleck as well was, "Lego Batman." And, why not? Arnett has taken all the "darkness" of Batman and turned him into a highly funny, yet sympathetic character. Damon had this to say:

"Well, look, I actually have it on good authority that Will is actually Ben’s favorite Batman, Absolutely, absolutely. Yeah, yeah, we’re all fans of Lego Batman. I went this last weekend with my kids, and it’s just awesome."

There is however one kid that thanks his daddy is the Batman of the real world. »

Stephen Colbert Sets Live ‘Late Show’ After Trump’s Address to Congress

17 February 2017 2:50 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stephen Colbert will host a live edition of “The Late Show” on Feb. 28, the night of President Trump’s address to Congress.

Colbert has done 14 live telecasts since taking over the “Late Show” in September 2015. The move to go live after Trump’s first address to a joint session of Congress is a bid to capitalize on the public’s interest in the unpredictable political climate and to build on “Late Show’s” ratings momentum.

“Late Show” has in the past two weeks overtaken NBC’s “The Tonight Show” for the lead in total viewership, and it has closed much of the gap in the adult 18-49 demo race. Colbert has been laser-focused on biting political humor and the daily doings of the Trump administration, which to date has been a ripe source of material.

Colbert’s guests on Feb. 28 will include actress Lisa Kudrow and former Obama White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

Jimmy Fallon parodied President Trump's bizarre solo press conference with the cold-open of Thursday's Tonight Show. The comedian, decked out in his traditional orange make-up, hosted his own event, poking fun at the president's rambling statements and confrontations with reporters.

"First of all, you're all fake news," Fallon said to open the bit. "I hate you very much. And thank you for being here. Next." Later, he vowed to make Beyoncé Secretary of Labor because of her pregnancy expertise, used a tiny hand prop to drink a glass of water »
