As the lead anchor for Univision's Spanish-language nightly newscast and their Sunday morning talk show Al Punto, plus the new host of Fusion's prime time English-language show America, Jorge Ramos is easily one of the busiest men in media. On Thursday night, he sat down with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show to talk about the shifting demographics in this country and their political implications. »

Never accuse Fox Business Channel’s Stuart Varney of backing down from a disagreement. As Jon Stewart noted on “The Daily Show” Thursday, the British journalist is presently at odds with none other than the Pope. So is CNBC’s Lawrence Kudlow. Both business commentators disagree with Pope Francis’ call for an end to unchecked capitalism. Also read: Jon Stewart: Fox News Lives ‘In a World of Pure Fear and Despair’ “Money must serve, not rule,” the pope said recently. “I exhort you to generous solidarity and to the return of economics and finance to an ethical approach which favors human beings. »

Jared Leto has earned rave reviews and Oscar buzz for his role as a transgendered woman, Rayon, in ‘Dallas Buyers Club.’ But all of those accolades didn’t come easy — HollywoodLife met up with Jared at a luncheon honoring the film, and he gave us exclusive details on the labor of love that was becoming Rayon.
Jared Leto, 41, took a hiatus from his six-year acting hiatus to appear in the spectacular film Dallas Buyers Club, which stars Jared and Matthew McConaughey as AIDS patients in 1985 Dallas. Find out what Jared told HollywoodLife.com about his spectacular performance (and walking in heels) below!
Every woman knows that painting that perfect pretty face isn’t always easy, so we sympathize with Jared for having to transform into Rayon every day — even if the artist formerly known as Jordan Catalano »

Netflix's critical hit "Orange Is the New Black" picked up four nominations for the 2014 Writers Guild Awards -- where it's entered as a comedy series.
The show (and its cast) is entered in the drama field for some other upcoming awards shows, including the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards. It's a bit of a tweener show, mixing both comedy and drama, but as there are no "dramedy" awards anywhere, it's a comedy for writing purposes.
The full list of series nominees is below. You can go here to see all the WGA TV and radio nominees, including those for news and children's programming. The awards are scheduled for Feb. 1.

Remember when Zack Snyder officially announced his intention to put a Batman movie inside a Superman movie? On Wednesday, he got even more ambitious: Warner Bros. officially announced that Gal Gadot was playing Wonder Woman. We’ve all had a day to work through our complicated feelings about that news. But now it’s time to move on to more important things. Snyder’s incipient Superman saga »

How do you get people to care about a news story that has major consequences but can't be summed up in 10 seconds? The Daily Show gave itself that challenge last night went it sent Samantha Bee into the field to find out why every major financial news network, and even The New York Times, has ignored the suprisingly-not-illegal Wall Street scandal involving New York equity firm Blackstone and Spanish gambling company Codere. »

Netflix is releasing Jehane Noujaim's taut, smart, timely film The Square in January, but as she told Jon Stewart on The Daily Show last night, the film still cannot be shown in Egypt.With great immediacy, the documentary (one of 15 on the Oscar short-list) takes viewers inside the revolution in Tahrir Square, from the anti-Mubarak demonstrations to the disappointing realization that his elected successor, Mohamed Morsi, was assuming dictatorial powers of his own. (You can read my full review here.) In Part 1 of the interview, Noujaim talks about the history of her film. But don't miss Part 2, the extended web-only segment, in which she talks about censorship, brings the story up to date, and discusses why, as she says, "it's a really dark time now" in Egypt.

Jon Stewart obliterated the corporation loophole on Wednesday night’s “Daily Show,” where huge institutions pay severe sums of settlement money, but avoid admitting wrongdoing, and no decision makers go to jail. In the most recent egregious example, healthcare manufacturer Johnson & Johnson has agreed to pay $2 billion to settle civil and criminal allegations against its wrongdoing. To which Stewart quipped, “I expect this from you, Johnson. But not you, Johnson.” See video: Stephen Colbert: Pope Francis Is Batman — Check Out the Nipples on His Suit The “Daily Show” host added, “To be honest with you, I have not trusted Johnson & Johnson. »

The War on Christmas™ is a great racket for Bill O'Reilly, who gets to do the same Defender-of-Christmas schtick every holiday season, and where there is an O'Reilly crusade, Jon Stewart always right behind him, laughing all the way. Not being one to let things go, O'Reilly lobbed a Kringle grenade at the Daily Show host (or, as O'Reilly called him, a "grinch"). »

30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto is currently making the rounds on all the big talk shows to promote his new film, "Dallas Buyers Club." Watching him go toe-to-toe with all the hosts reminded us that Leto is Hollywood's most difficult talk show guest.
Don't believe us? We've rounded up Leto's most recent talk show appearances as evidence.
Watch the singer/actor dodge questions, answer only what he wants to, and even refuse to watch his own clips, all while the hosts like Jon Stewart, Conan O'Brien, and Ellen DeGeneres try and pretend like Leto's a great guest:

Jon Stewart wondered on the “Daily Show” Tuesday what it’s like for Fox News to inhabit a “world of pure fear and despair” — especially around the holidays. Stewart noted several recent Fox News stories, including one about a Ymca hosting a special swim class for Muslim girls, and another about people being robbed on the street.

Stephen Colbert, our nation’s self-proclaimed “most famous Catholic,” knew there was something funny about the newish holy leader — but what he didn’t realize until now is that Pope Francis is Batman. Rumors have emerged that Pope Francis sneaks out of the Vatican at night in regular priest clothes and ministers to the homeless. See video: Jon Stewart on Black Friday: Nothing Says Christmas Like Stabbings (Video) “Holy Holy Father, Nation!” Colbert exclaimed on Tuesday’s “Colbert Report.” He then ran down the similarities between the high priest and Bruce Wayne, which are staggering: Both are wealthy bachelors who live alone in giant mansions, »

Jon Stewart is clearly convinced that Jennifer Lawrence resembles a young Helen Mirren. Of course, whether he can convince others is another story entirely. If you recall, when the Hunger Games: Catching Fire star stopped by The Daily Show recently, Stewart showed a picture of Mirren back in the day and remarked on the similarities between the two ladies. As Lawrence gave a perplexed look, Stewart said he brought it up because, "I don't prepare for these [interviews] very well." Cut to Monday, Dec. 2, when Sir Ian McKellen dropped by the program. The conversation started normally enough, with both men talking about The Hobbit movies. And then it happened. Out of »

This week's comedy news
The gloves are off in Brand versus the Sun. On Saturday, the never-knowingly-underexposed comedian wrote a piece for this paper accusing the Sun on Sunday of printing lies about his personal life, and comparing Rupert Murdoch to Hitler. Brand had previously tweeted his intention to sue the tabloid. This week, the red-top struck back, with an article entitled 20 reasons why Russell Brand is the Biggest Hypocrite in Britain – a piece it was so keen to broadcast, it suspended its online paywall. Its accusations? That Brand's anti-capitalist arguments don't square with his £9m fortune. That he has written extensively for the Sun and frequently publicly praised the paper. That his book and TV series were published and broadcast by Harper Collins and Fox respectively – both owned by Rupert Murdoch, »

Another Black Friday has come and gone. With all the savings and Yuletide deals, there were also violent outbreaks. On Monday’s edition of “The Daily Show,” Jon Stewart took viewers through the carnage that ensued at America’s big box stores. Stabbings, taser firings and fist fights over toys formed a bloody tableau that perfectly illustrated the Christmas Spirit. “There’s something about the holidays,” Stewart noted. “Reminds us how we like to gather with our loved ones around the crackle of a stun gun.” Also read: Shirtless Zac Efron, Seth Rogen Tease ‘Bound 4′ Parody (Video) Fisticuffs and sharp »

It used to be the go-to show for forensic news satire. But thanks to Twitter and co, it's up against far faster – and often just as sharp – competition. Is it time for the final edition?
To paraphrase Jimmy Nail: if you love something, set it free. I'm starting to suspect this might be the case with Have I Got News For You. The show used to be fresh and vital, razor sharp and gleeful in its dismantling of the news. But it's a shadow of its former self now. It lumbers along, as best it can, taking easily telegraphed potshots at targets that are already dead. It wrings out titters where there should be guffaws. It used to be Lenny Bruce, now it's Bruce Forsyth. I say this with a heavy heart, but I think it might be time for a dignified retirement.
It's not hard to see where the show went wrong. »

Nearly two months ago Batman #24 was released and readers were treated to the first crescendo of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Zero Year arc. This astounding bumper double issue must have left many readers wondering where do we go from here? Also, could anything top not only that issue but also all that has lead up to that issue’s events? This past month saw the release of Batman #25 and the continuation of this epic saga. Though I admit a certain sense of subjectivity, the narrative looks like it still finds fresh new ways to perpetuate itself, building upon and definitely upping the odds of what has gone before.
A prior article of mine spoke of Snyder’s writing in comparison to his predecessor; Grant Morrison. Zero Year may quite possibly exemplify the maturation of and therefore stand as a defining moment in Snyder’s work as a Batman writer. »

What’s the point of the holiday season if you can’t enjoy it with the one you love? So as Thanksgiving rolls around, check out the sexy couples who we think need to reunite under the mistletoe and over a turkey dinner. See if you agree!
The only thing better than ice skating, drinking hot cocoa, and wearing cute Christmas sweaters is doing all of it with a boyfriend or a girlfriend. And who is supposed to give Robert Pattinson romantic gifts if he doesn’t have Kristen Stewart around!? The holidays are for coming together, so let’s see who we can match up (for the second or third time).
Actually, two of our holiday wishes may already be coming true. First of all, a source told HollywoodLife.com »
