This Christmas, The Simpsons aims for heartwarming, lands on forgettable This Christmas, The Simpsons aims for heartwarming, lands on forgettable

“At any other time of the year, that man’s life would be worth more than a TV.”

Saturday Night Live and Jason Momoa resurrect Khal Drogo for the talk show of the dead Saturday Night Live and Jason Momoa resurrect Khal Drogo for the talk show of the dead

While last night’s shaky Saturday Night Live didn’t make the overwhelming case for Aquaman star Jason Momoa to pursue a Dwayne Johnson-style comedy career sideline or anything, the big lug gave it his all in the face of some pretty disappointing sketches. (Seriously, how do you not nail a “Momoa as Ogre in a Revenge…

Jason Momoa rides out the storm of another rocky Saturday Night Live Jason Momoa rides out the storm of another rocky Saturday Night Live

“We gotta find this guy if we wanna see what he looks like!”

On The Late Show, Kathy Griffin details the massive fallout from that bloody Trump photo On The Late Show, Kathy Griffin details the massive fallout from that bloody Trump photo

Whether humorist Kathy Griffin is your cup of comedic tea or not, the vindictive overreaction of the U.S. government to that perhaps ill-advised picture she posted in May 2017 is pretty chilling to anyone invested in the concept of free speech. The longtime standup and reality show staple told The Late Show’s Stephen…

American Vandal's Jimmy Tatro tells Jimmy Kimmel about drawing dicks, and being one to Tyler Perry American Vandal's Jimmy Tatro tells Jimmy Kimmel about drawing dicks, and being one to Tyler Perry

“Former YouTube star” is pretty much 2018 shorthand for “insufferable douchebag,” so Jimmy Tatro didn’t do his rep any favors by starting out by telling Jimmy Kimmel that having his parents at Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! taping was in danger of “killing his swag.” At least, the YouTuber-turned-actor managed to walk…

Sam Bee returns, just in time for "Mueller Christmas" Sam Bee returns, just in time for "Mueller Christmas"

While it’s tempting to demand that all late-night comedians stay at their posts until this whole national nightmare of an administration crashes and burns, it’s probably for the best that folks like Full Frontal’s Samantha Bee take a breather now and again. After all, she nearly burned down her set with telekinetic…

Seth Meyers asks Jake Tapper about how low the bar really is for Trump at this point Seth Meyers asks Jake Tapper about how low the bar really is for Trump at this point

“It was a fairly successful summit for President Trump,” was CNN Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper’s assessment of how last week’s Argentina G20 meeting went. Sort of surprising, that, except that Tapper then completed his thought to Late Night host Seth Meyers by noting that, for this president, “fairly…

Stephen Colbert checks Lucas Hedges’ ID, pours him a drink, makes him sing Cats Stephen Colbert checks Lucas Hedges’ ID, pours him a drink, makes him sing Cats

Stephen Colbert’s not-so-secret studio bar has been the source of some serious fun on The Late Show over the years. Like at the Golden Globes every year, the addition of alcohol to a professional obligation reliably punctures some of the air of stuffiness in the average show biz interview, so, for Lucas Hedges, the…

Homer is Lisa's Atticus Finch in a sweet but unsatisfying Simpsons Homer is Lisa's Atticus Finch in a sweet but unsatisfying Simpsons

It must be terrible to write for The Simpsons. I mean, it’s obviously great to be associated with what is still unquestionably one of the greatest television shows in history. And writing a good latter-day Simpsons episode is the sort of cap-feather that a TV writer (who, let’s face it, probably grew up dreaming of…

Nick Kroll brings Big Mouth's Hormone Monster to The Tonight Show Nick Kroll brings Big Mouth's Hormone Monster to The Tonight Show

From the Douche, to The League’s Ruxin, to basically every single character he’s ever played on Kroll Show, Comedy Bang! Bang!, and every talk show appearance ever, Nick Kroll traffics in aggressively comedic jerks. (Actually, he’s reportedly really good in a serious role as a real-life Nazi hunter in this year’s …

Lindy West tells Trevor Noah #ShoutYourAbortion takes back the issue from a "tiny fringe" Lindy West tells Trevor Noah #ShoutYourAbortion takes back the issue from a "tiny fringe"

Author, activist, and person perennially taking no shit Lindy West appeared on Thursday’s Daily Show to explain the title of her new book, Shout Your Abortion. Started as a hashtag online in 2015 (because, 2015), the phrase was originally appended to a friend’s strikingly honest story of how her own decision to…

Stephen Colbert accuses Donald Trump of stealing his material Stephen Colbert accuses Donald Trump of stealing his material

Stephen Colbert returned from his extended Thanksgiving break (nice work if you can get it) to a whole raft of stored up Trump news from his time away. Let’s see, Trump minion Paul Manafort (“Ray Liotta in the role of a lifetime”) violated his plea deal with Robert Mueller by repeatedly lying to the FBI, other Trump…

“I don’t want to leave my country and my home. I am tired of fighting, and yet, let’s do it. Let’s go to England.”

Jon Stewart takes over The Late Show, renews his feud with Fuckface Von Clownstick Jon Stewart takes over The Late Show, renews his feud with Fuckface Von Clownstick

With Stephen Colbert still on his extended Thanksgiving break, Late Show viewers yet got an unexpected gift on Tuesday. In a pre-recorded introduction to an episode made up of flip-flopped interviews with Late Show guests like Neil deGrasse Tyson, Kerry Washington, and others doing the interviewing, Colbert explained…

Trevor Noah mocks the rising tide of climate change deniers on cable news Trevor Noah mocks the rising tide of climate change deniers on cable news

Hey, the world’s on fire. No, not in a metaphorical, a Russian asset reality show clown has the nuclear codes sort of way, but actually on fire. At least that’s the conclusion reached by hundreds of scientists from 13 government agencies in a four-year study that outlines, in truly terrifying detail, just how on fire…
