By Hiring Baratunde Thurston, Trevor Noah’s ‘Daily Show’ Hones In On Digital Content

18 hours ago | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

On September 28th, South African comedian Trevor Noah will officially begin the difficult task of replacing Jon Stewart as host of The Daily Show. Noah will have to deliver his own unique spin on fake news in order to distinguish himself from his predecessor, and this week, his Daily Show regime announced a hire that gives us a glimpse at how he will accomplish that goal. Baratunde Thurston, political humorist and former director of digital at The Onion, will be The Daily Show’s head of digital content.

In his new role, Thurston will be tasked with the creation of Daily Show-related content on platforms like Snapchat and Instagram. This strategy will be a marked departure from The Daily Show’s approach to digital platforms under Stewart; while episodes were made available on the Comedy Central website, The Daily Show did not have much digital presence beyond that.

Watch: Malala Yousafzai Tells Her Story in ‘He Named Me Malala’ Trailer

27 August 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The trailer for Davis Guggenheim’s documentary “He Named Me Malala” depicting Nobel Peace Prize recipient Malala Yousafzai’s battle for equal rights has just debuted online.

“I tell my story not because it is unique,” Yousafzai says in the trailer. “It is the story of many girls.”

Yousafzai, named after the Afghan warrior who died in battle, was shot in the head for championing girls’ education in Pakistan.

The trailer shows Yousafzai delivering speeches and recounting her experience with the Taliban and meeting celebrities such as Jon Stewart and Bono and dignitaries like Queen Elizabeth. It also reveals what her family life is like.

“I’m still 17,” Yousafzai says as the trailer shows her playing cards and teaching her father to tweet. “I’m still a teenager.”

Guggenheim’s “He Named Me Malala” opens in theaters on Oct. 2, with National Geographic set to air the film next year in 171 countries and 45 languages. »

Here's what she had to say about working with Amy Schumer.

From Amy Schumer to John Oliver, a new golden age of TV comedy

26 August 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

There's more television programming than there ever has been before, and while a glut of prestige shows like "Breaking Bad," "Mad Men" and "Game of Thrones" have prompted many to call this a golden age of TV drama, isn't it also the golden age for comedy? Consider singular creative visions like Lena Dunham's "Girls" and Louis C.K.'s "Louie," or the wide variety of comedians showcasing their work on Comedy Central like Amy Schumer and "Key and Peele." Let's not forget the way John Oliver has taken Jon Stewart's model of satire to the next level on "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver."

The Big Bang Theory Guys Rule the Forbes List of Highest-Paid TV Actors of 2015

25 August 2015 9:07 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Forbes has released its list of best-paid TV actors for 2015, and this year comedy reigns supreme. Eleven of the top 15 earners play in sitcoms, most notably The Big Bang Theory, which boasts four of the top six slots. The show's Jim Parsons leads with $29 million, overtaking last year's king, Ashton Kutcher ($26 million, from 2014), who fell to third. The other dominant show turned out to be Modern Family, which has its four main men all making the cut. Notably, the ghost of McDreamy haunts the list, as well as a couple other dramatic heavyweights (Kevin Spacey and Mark Harmon). Forbes points out that there is a different list for comedians and TV personalities (i.e., Jon Stewart), and that cult figures (i.e., Terrence Howard) don't necessarily have immediate monetary figures that match their light-speed popularity — so keep that in mind when yelling at the list for excluding »

Seriously, How Often Do You Get to See Jon Stewart Body Slammed on WWE?

25 August 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

After spending 16 years sitting behind a desk grilling politicians and changing politics, was Jon Stewart pining for another job?  Could it be that Stewart’s life long dream was to be a pro wrestler? The former host of “The Daily Show” appeared on “Monday Night Raw,” a day after hosting WWE’s SummerSlam.   Oddly enough at SummerSlam he smashed 15-time WWE Champion John Cena with a metal chair to the stomach.   But Daly, the gentleman, returns to speak with Cena. Actually, he decided to immerse himself fully into a story line that involved not only Cena, but wrestling legend Rick Flair as well.  Oh and by the way, he got body slammed too.  Stewart addressed a rowdy crowd in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and their “children who wanted to know who the little old mean man was” that was sharply divided over his part in the outcome of the previous night’s winner-takes-all… »

Grand Old Partiality: Variety Series Emmys Hew to the Left

25 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Twenty-four million people tuned in earlier this month and saw one of the political punchlines of the year.

Donald Trump, answering a question from Fox NewsMegyn Kelly at the first Republican presidential debate, was asked about calling women “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, disgusting animals.”

Trump’s response: “Only Rosie O’Donnell.”

It may have been misogynistic, but it drew audience laughs, as do so many of Trump’s lines.

As candidates spear Democrats, it’ll at least make up for the lack of rightward laughs in latenight, a landscape that has been dominated, for the past decade, by humor that tilts to the left. That is reflected in this year’s Emmy nominees for variety series. The recently ended “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” — the host’s skewering of Fox News led to plenty of headlines — won the award for 10 years straight, a record. That was broken only by its companion show, »

How Jon Stewart and Stephen Amell Might Teach You To Love Professional Wrestling

25 August 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last night, Jon Stewart — beloved liberal media icon — appeared for the first time on cable television since leaving behind the desk of "The Daily Show" three weeks ago. But he wasn't on a major news outlet, discussing issues of the day. Instead, he was on "Monday Night Raw," being confronted by professional wrestler/"Trainwreck" scene-stealer John Cena about the fact that the day before, during the WWE PPV event "SummerSlam," Stewart had run out in the middle of Cena's wrestling match and hit John Cena with a chair, thus sabotaging Cena's match and allowing the other guy to win.  Read More: Review: 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' Made Jon Stewart Acknowledge Our Thanks Cena felt Stewart (who was officially at SummerSlam to serve as host) had transgressed, and so Cena sought justice in the form of what Cena refers to as an "attitude adjustment" — known to the »

8 Reasons Nxt Takeover Was Better Than WWE SummerSlam

25 August 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

With SummerSlam and Nxt TakeOver: Brooklyn in the books, which of the two shows came out on top? SummerSlam definitely had its moments with The New Day winning the tag title, Cesaro/Owens, Jon Stewart costing John Cena his title and the controversial ending to Undertaker/Lesnar, but the show as a whole was fairly average. WWE has trouble filling a 3-hour Raw with intriguing entertainment, so how could they do any better with a 4 hour show?

Well, they couldn’t.

Nxt TakeOver: Brooklyn was a compact ball of energy that rarely let up. From Jushin Liger cracking jokes at Tyler Breeze’s expense to The Vaudevillians capturing the tag team titles for the first time, the entire undercard thoroughly entertained.

Even the arena was more interesting to look at; slight changes to the lighting and use of video boards helped make the product “feel” different.

'WWE Raw': Sting in a Box, Jon Stewart in Pain

What a SummerSlam! Oh, wait, that was on Sunday. Well, last night sure felt like the real prestige affair, as there were debuts, returns and celebrity cameos galore.

Not necessarily a ton in the way of wrestling, of course, unless you were among those who enjoyed the broadcast's sidebar into house-show territory with that inconsequential eight-man tag toward the end. But I digress. In fact, I'll go one better, skip the formalities and segue straight into the five key things (in addition to the usual Twitter-friendly sidebar observations) that I »

10 Big Questions From WWE SummerSlam 2015

24 August 2015 1:44 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The biggest WWE event of the summer is over and SummerSlam should be considered a success although it was also a very controversial show due to the endings of the two biggest matches.

It’s not easy to put on a four hour show, nor is it easy to come up with ten different finishes to matches that are going to satisfy all WWE fans. Just because a major match takes place at a big event like SummerSlam doesn’t mean it has to have a clean finish. WWE is all about looking ahead the next show.

Jon Stewart did a good job as the host of the show, but seeing him do a promo with Mick Foley to start it made it feel like an episode of Raw. What wasn’t expected later on was Stewart becoming the deciding factor in the WWE Title match.

Speaking to The Daily Beast, Haggis denounced the media for ignoring issues related to Scientology during Cruise's "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" press tour, especially in the wake of Gibney's "Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison System of Belief," which painted Cruise as one of the religion's most important cultural figures.
