    Bill Maher has offered Mitt Romney $1M to take over the United States. The HBO late night star reminded viewers that, when the former Massachusetts governor ran for POTUS in 2012, “I was so scared Romney was going to be president I gave Obama a million bucks.” Explaining what a difference a few years, and one Donald Trump presidency, can make, Maher announced, “I would gladly give Romney $1M tomorrow if he would take over America. Swear to god!” “I will become a Mormon, how about that?” the well-known atheist said, upping the offer on Bill Maher: Live From Oklahoma,...

    Bill Maher began by asking Moore about the “Hail Mary” plan he supposedly had to prevent the replacement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. “Listen, the Senate right now is 50-49. Sadly, McCain will not be able to vote, so it’s a 50-49 vote,” Moore declared. “C’mon! We’ve got to push it off til after November.” “And I don’t trust every Democrat,” Maher told Moore. “I’ll join a million other people surrounding the United States Capitol,” Moore responded. “I will stand there. I will put my- Bill, let me tell you something. If this judge goes through, for at least the rest...

    HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher admitted that he hopes the American economy will crash so that President Donald Trump will be voted out of office. Maher, along with his panel, discussed the success of the Trump administration’s growing economy, but remained skeptical about how long the prosperity will last. “I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point, and by the way, I’m hoping for it because I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy,” Maher said during the June 8 show. “So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that...

    ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’ director Teddy Kunhardt talks us through the documentary and reveals what the former Presidential candidate thought of it John McCain: For Whom The Bell Tolls is an honest and compelling portrait of the life and career of one of the United States’ most renowned politicians. But arguably the most remarkable aspect of the HBO documentary is that it even exists at all. It was shot in just 7 months when films of this ilk usually take a year and a half, plus there was the added complication that the 81-year-old McCain had just been diagnosed...

    On HBO’s “Real Time,” comedian Bill Maher argued that in order to think things in America are going well, “you have to not care about democracy, Russia, corruption, the environment.” Maher said, “[A]lmost 60 percent of the people [in] the latest poll in America say things are going well. Now, you have to not care about democracy, Russia, corruption, the environment. I–.” Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich cut in to say that 90 percent of Americans would say things were going well if there wasn’t a “jerk” as president. Maher then stated, “I know it’s always the economy, stupid. But...
  • HBO's John Oliver: Trump Has More 'Sexual Chemistry' With Ivanka Than Jared Kushner

    It’s probably appropriate that "comedian" John Oliver’s late-night HBO show is called Last Week Tonight -- his material is about as old and tired as his sense of humor. Case in point: Sunday night, when Oliver openly joked about incest in the White House, saying that Donald Trump has more “electrifying sexual chemistry” with his daughter than does her husband. “What’s crazy is, Kushner has reportedly been on interim security clearance ever since he joined the White House, and that is for pretty good reason,” Oliver said Sunday, referring to allegations that Kushner omitted millions of dollars in assets in...

    ....David Hogg appeared on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” to stress that the gun control agenda he’s been pushing is not about politics. He then bragged that he hung up on the White House… before his classmate dropped an “F-bomb” on national television, directed at “all generations before us.” ...“I actually hung up on the White House the other day,” Hogg boasted, explaining that they had called him the day before Trump’s listening session to invite him to attend.

    Two survivors from the Florida high school shooting said they will not be giving up on their push for gun control anytime soon, with one saying that "President Trump needs to listen to the screams of the children." “We are millennials and we love complaining more than any other generation," David Hogg said on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" when asked how long he and fellow student Cameron Kasky would push for gun control. Hogg said during the interview that the White House called him the day before Trump's listening session last month with students and family members impacted...

    Schadenfreude, schadenfreude, oh beautiful, beautiful schadenfreude! You will soon be able to enjoy some great Election Night 2016 schadenfreude again in the form of HBO's documentary, The Final Year, which will soon be broadcast on that network. As you can see from the trailer below it appears to be mostly a big borefest of Obama administration hype about how wonderful and wise they were. However, its saving grace is that the HBO film crew was at a Hillary "victory" party hosted by former UN Ambassador Samantha Power to celebrate Hillary Clinton winning the election. When it did not turn out...

We've seen some images from the movie, and now HBO has graced us with the first footage.

    “Girls” creator Lena Dunham, who earlier this year admitted she fictionalized details in a memoir about her alleged rapist and allowed an innocent man to remain under suspicion, has fled from Twitter claiming “It really, truly wasn’t a safe space for me.” Time reports that the one-percenter will have “someone else post Tweets for her.” Dunham also announced that her embarrassingly low-rated HBO show “Girls” will most likely end with season six. Season five is currently in production. Dunham running from Twitter is an extraordinary act of cowardice on her part. From the beginning, the rape hoaxer’s claim to fame...

    Hollywood projects famously come in pairs, from movies about asteroids to movies about Hercules, and that rule apparently holds true even when it comes to the highly specific subgenre of TV series envisioning an alternate end to the American Civil War. For the last two weeks, HBO and Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have been dealing with the backlash over the announcement of Confederate, a TV series set in a United States where the South successfully seceded and slavery remains legal below the Mason-Dixon Line. And now Amazon has revealed that it’s planning Black America, a...

    Only certain people get to make the potential big money productions in Hollywood and they have ways to get around anything potentially uncomfortable. HBO-Game of Thrones' David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are going to make a TV movie surrounding the Confederacy and slavery. These things have to be handled delicately and in this case, all it took was a cheap meal to get the ball rolling.

    The guys behind HBO's Game of Thrones, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, have a new project in the works called Confederate. The Civil War project is set up at HBO and they will start work on it as soon as they are done with Game of Thrones. Here's the description of the series: Confederate chronicles the events leading to the Third American Civil War. The series takes place in an alternate timeline, where the southern states have successfully seceded from the Union, giving rise to a nation in which slavery remains legal and has evolved into a modern institution.

  • TimeWarner May Have to Shut Down CNN Before the Merger of TimeWarner and ATT Takes Place

    There is an interesting deep story to the internet war on CNN. TimeWarner is the parent of CNN. But TimeWarner is much, much more than CNN. The corporate giant also owns HBO, TNT, the film studio Warner Bros, DC Comics, (10% of Hulu), Time Inc., AOL, Time Warner Cable, Warner Books and Warner Music Group--among various other media entities. The theme that ties them all together is that they are all businesses oriented toward the consumer. That is, the types of businesses that are vulnerable from many directions to the type of internet attack that has been launched against CNN....

    Coal company Murray Energy has sued HBO and its Sunday-night host, John Oliver, for what it says was a “false and malicious broadcast” last Sunday evening. It's seeking financial damages and a court order barring rebroadcasts of the segment's “defamatory statements.” Oliver's “Last Week Tonight” coal segment criticized the Trump administration's effort to revive the industry, saying coal jobs have dropped for decades and other energy alternatives are driving the industry's decline. He ribbed Murray Energy's CEO Robert Murray, who blames regulatory efforts by the Obama administration for damaging the coal industry. He said the 77-year-old looked like a “geriatric...

    “Girls” comes to an end on April 16 after six seasons, and it’s time to bid bye-bye to the best show about the worst of my generation. The HBO dramedy, created by then-24-year-old writer/actress Lena Dunham, brilliantly tackled difficult issues from abortion to sexual assault . . . while also making an entire pack of millennials look like loathsome narcissists. The cast of characters on “Girls” were remarkably, unbelievably awful. If you met a single character from the show in real life, you would be talking about how self-destructive they were . . . forever. That’s true whether it’s Jessa, who deals with her...
