Emmy race for Variety Talk Series too close to call between John Oliver, Samantha Bee, Stephen Colbert

20 July 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” is the defending champion in the Emmy race for Best Variety Talk Series following a long reign by “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” (2003-2012, 2015). That was interrupted by a couple of wins for “The Colbert Report” (2013-2014), which might have continued if “Colbert Report” hadn’t ended at […] »

Peter Farrelly on Learning to Love TV, Plus His Big Move Into Feature Drama — With Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen

12 June 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

There’s something about Peter Farrelly. The filmmaker, mostly known for feature comedies, is trying out a few new things this year.

Those shifts including separate moves into both television – where Farrelly and his brother Bob have rarely played – and dramatic film. At At&T’s Audience Network, Farrelly is behind the upcoming comedy “Loudermilk,” starring Ron Livingston as a cranky recovering alcoholic.

But Farrelly’s move into TV doesn’t mean he’s turning his back on the big screen. “I’m actually doing a film in the fall with Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali,” Farrelly told an audience at the Atx Television Festival, where “Loudermilk” was screening. “Green Book,” with Oscar winner Ali and Mortensen  in the lead roles, is currently being prepped.

“It’s based on a thing that used to be called the ‘Negro Motorist’s Green Book,’ published from 1936 to 1966,” he said. “It was a »

Emmy Preview: Stephen Colbert Will Bring Political Heat to Hosting Gig

31 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At the Primetime Emmy Awards last year, host Jimmy Kimmel put as fine a point on the Donald Trump phenomenon as he could. “Many have asked who is to blame for Donald Trump, and I’ll tell you who,” Kimmel said. “He’s sitting right there: Mark Burnett, the man who brought us ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’ Thanks to Mark, we don’t have to watch reality shows anymore because we’re living in one.”

It was mostly in good fun because at the time, no one thought Trump was on his way to becoming the 45th president of the United States. And in the midst of a highly combative election cycle, of course politics were going to find their way into the show.

Flash forward nearly a year and here we are. Late-night talk-show hosts have moved from stride to gallop in dressing down the current administration. Such series as “Black-ish” have tackled the zeitgeist head-on while others »

Donald Trump Shakes Up the Emmy Talk Show Race, As Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, and Trevor Noah Get In The Game

23 May 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As host of “The Apprentice,” one thing eluded Donald Trump: an Emmy. The fact that the Television Academy never awarded him one drove Trump — whom you might know is now the President of the United States of America — completely bonkers.

Trump wanted an Emmy bad enough that he went on the Hollywood campaign trail in 2008, taking trade newspaper reporters (including, um, this one) to lunch in an attempt to curry attention and grab a win for “The Apprentice.” But that was in the middle of “The Amazing Race’s” hot streak. Ultimately the closest Trump came to Emmy glory was singing the “Green Acres” theme with Megan Mullally on stage at the 2006 ceremony.

It’s a bit ironic, then, that Trump may play a hand in which shows are nominated — and ultimately win — this year’s Emmy for Outstanding Variety Talk Series.

How Stephen Colbert Got Angry, Remade the Late Show and Finally Got to Be Himself

12 May 2017 1:18 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

When The Late Show With Stephen Colbert premiered in 2015, it wasn't easy to watch Stephen Colbert not be "Stephen Colbert," the blissfully oblivious fauxservative host whose real politics were hiding in plain view but remained cleverly cloaked in the character's arrogant bluster. The man himself was still watchable, but it was one less voice going above and beyond to stick it to the media, politicians and whoever or whatever needed a dose of comeuppance. It seemed that the passing of the torch at The Daily Show and the end of The Colbert Report couldn't have come at a worse time for those who still wanted to consume their political content with a heaping side of »

Stephen Colbert’s ‘Late Show’ Bloopers Are the Funniest Recurring Segment on TV

11 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There’s a recurring segment on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” that’s just as good as anything else on TV.

It’s not the Big Furry Hat proclamations, stacked with one-liners about bizarre human behavior and dumb phrases people insist on using. It’s not Midnight Confessions, where Stephen Colbert “admits” to activities and thoughts that aren’t actually sins. And it’s not his nightly monologue, which, misguided phrasing aside, has angled closer and closer to the tightly constructed jabs of Colbert’s Comedy Central days.

All of those are solid, but the best “The Late Show” segment doesn’t have a name and it doesn’t happen on a regular basis.

It happens whenever Colbert stumbles over a joke.

Jeffrey Tambor Throws Shade at Mike Mignola Over ‘Hellboy’ Reboot Announcement

10 May 2017 7:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

On Monday, “Hellboy” creator Mike Mignola took to social media to announce that the film was getting an R-rated reboot, but original director and star Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman aren’t along for the ride. Instead, “The Descent” director Neil Marshall will helm the reboot of the dark fantasy superhero film, and “Stranger Things” actor David Harbour is being tapped to star in the title role.

Actor Jeffrey Tambor, who played Tom Manning, the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense director, in the the first two installments, is not too happy with Mignola’s decision to leave Del Toro and Perlman out of the project. “Mike: I may be [unavailable]… nice on the loyalty to Ron and Guillermo, btw,” the actor wrote in response to Mignola’s tweet making the announcement.

Stephen Colbert Defends Controversial Trump Jokes: ‘I Don’t Regret That’

3 May 2017 6:23 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stephen Colbert has addressed the controversial jokes about President Donald Trump that sparked a #FireColbert campaign over the past two days… but stopped short of an apology.

“Welcome to ‘The Late Show.’ I’m your host, Stephen Colbert,” he says at the top of Wednesday night’s show, according to a transcript obtained from CBS. “Still? I am still the host? I’m still the host!!”

“Now, if you saw my monologue Monday, you know that I was a little upset at Donald Trump for insulting a friend of mine,” he continues. “So at the end of that monologue I had a few choice insults for the president in return. I don’t regret that. He, I believe, can take care of himself. I have jokes; he has the launch codes. So, it’s a fair fight.”

The rant in question was sparked by Trump’s treatment of CBS NewsJohn Dickerson during an interview, when »

Stephen Colbert in Hot Water Over ‘Homophobic’ Donald Trump Joke

2 May 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert is facing backlash for a joke he made about President Donald Trump on Monday night that many are calling “homophobic.”

During his opening monologue, Colbert went off on Trump over the President’s treatment of CBS NewsJohn Dickerson, who saw an interview with Trump abruptly ended when he asked about the President’s unproven claims that then-President Obama had wiretapped Trump and members of his campaign. As Dickerson and Colbert are both CBS employees, Colbert felt it his duty to say the things Dickerson himself could not.

“Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine,” Colbert said near the end of the insult-laden rant. “You have more people marching against you than cancer. You talk like a sign language gorilla that got hit in the head. In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c–k holster.” The »
