The Awful Truth (1999–2000)
TNT has ordered the series “Michael Moore Live from the Apocalypse” (that’s a working title), a new non-fiction series from Moore set to premiere in late fall.
“Live from the Apocalypse” is Moore’s first regular TV show since “The Awful Truth” went off the air in 2000. Before that, he earned a Primetime Emmy – the first ever for a non-fiction series – for his short-lived but fondly remembered “TV Nation.”

“‘Live from the Apocalypse’ will be a raucous gathering place for millions of our fellow citizens in desperate need of a break from the screaming pundits and the purveyors of ‘alternative facts,'” Moore said in a statement. “Our show will be dangerous and relentless. And it will be the destination for those who want to know what
Earlier this week, veteran documentarian Michael Moore delivered his own October Surprise. The Oscar-winning filmmaker and legendary muckraker suddenly unveiled the release of a previously unannounced project: Michael Moore in TrumpLand, a new film culled from two one-man shows the director performed earlier this month in the predominantly Republican town of Wilmington, Ohio. Shot, edited and released in less than two weeks,

Hate Michael Moore? Hate Michael Moore movies? Although Moore-o-phobes will think the title sounds like another Moore snark-fest about America's penchant for warfare, his newest picture Where to Invade Next is fundamentally unlike any of his earlier hits. It's also as (gasp) politically neutral as a sane movie can be. It's charming and uplifting, qualifiers I don't normally associate with Moore.

“Out of the Crossfire, beyond Hardball, this is Crossballs!”
A parody of political debate shows, Crossballs has comedians pose as experts in their field to discuss the issue of the day and pits them against real life experts who are not aware of the farce debate they are participating in. The comedians argue both sides of an issue, be it ridiculous or not, and mine comedy from taking the issue to absurd lengths and goading reactions from the real experts.
Each episode is moderated by Chris Tallman (as a Chris Matthews type), who introduces
I don't know about you, but I had a really, really terrible Monday. One thing that improved it was these pictures of Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively having a backyard party with a dunk tank. Frankly, I'm amazed at the voodoo that keeps Ryan's trunks from falling down as low as they ride.
I didn't really think anything of it when I watched True Blood, but so soon after the controversy with George W. Bush's severed head on Game of Thrones, was it wise to put vigilantes in Obama masks?

Alex Pillai's urban melodrama Victim has a bizarre and overwrought ending and a few EastEnders-ish moments. But there's some energy there. Ashley Madekwe plays innocent Tia, who comes to London to study, staying with her tough cousin; this is Charmaine (Shanika Warren-Markland) who seems to be living the high life, partying and hanging out with male friends including Tyson (Ashley Chin). The awful truth is that Charmaine and her mates are running a honey-trap scam: they seduce drunken City types in clubs, go back with them to their expensive flats, then Tyson and his crew move in, beat them up and steal everything. Inevitably, a romance develops between Tia and Tyson. It doesn't quite come together, yet there's some rough'n'ready force.

He has been tapped as executive producer/showrunner on Comedy Central's breakout hit "Important Things With Demetri Martin" and has signed as an executive producer on Showtime's upcoming series starring British comedian Marc Wootton.
On "Important Things," which mixes stand-up comedy, sketches, animation and studio bits, Siskel will executive produce alongside Demetri Martin and Jon Stewart.
He replaces Beth McCarthy-Miller, who ran the show during its first season. The change stems from the production's move from New York to Los Angeles after the Big Apple-based Martin recently relocated to California.
An average of 2.8 million viewers tuned in Feb. 11 for the "Important Things" premiere, making it Comedy Central's most-watched debut since "Chappelle's Show" in 2003.
At Showtime, Siskel will executive produce alongside Wootton on the comedian's untitled series. The half-hour project, which has a six-episode order, will feature Wootton's character-driven
Overture Films and Paramount Vantage have announced that Oscar-winner Michael Moore’s new documentary feature will be released domestically on October 2, 2009. The as-yet-untitled film will explore the root causes of the global economic meltdown and take a comical look at the corporate and political shenanigans that culminated in what Moore has described as “the biggest robbery in the history of this country” – the massive transfer of U.S. taxpayer money to private financial institutions.
