  • 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...

    HBO has become pretty good at adapting successful books into successful TV programs. The cable network has another promising project on the way with an adaptation of Fahrenheit 451. Based on the classic sci-fi novel by Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451 is an upcoming TV movie starring Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon. We've seen some images from the movie, and now HBO has graced us with the first footage.

    "Game of Thrones" fans will be disappointed to hear that the show won't be coming back in 2018. Instead, the final season of "Game of Thrones" will air in 2019, with veterans of the series returning to play key roles behind the scenes.

    “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...

The commenter, with the username RaUL_AMDERLAINE, floated New England Patriots quarterback and friend of President Trump, Tom Brady. Martin's reply was Trump's predecessor, the 44th president. "Well, Barack Obama would be pretty exciting," Martin said

    It is the final season of one of the most talked about shows in recent years. And Lena Dunham certainly didn't disappoint fans as she returned to the screen as body-confident Hannah Horvath as Girls' sixth season debuted on Sunday night. The show's creator and leading lady was at her unashamed best in the episode as her character enjoyed success in her professional and private lives.

    Ignoring the politics of it for the moment, check out this video of Sam Harris debating Ben Affleck on Bill Maher’s Real Time show. I’ll teach you how to spot cognitive dissonance in the clip. Watch for the moment Ben has to hallucinate Sam’s opinion from the reasonable position that many Muslims worldwide have non-liberal views to an hallucination about “All Muslims are bad.” Sam and Bill both clarify their viewpoints, with data, but Ben is struck deaf to it. All he can hear is the absurd absolute “all.” He is literally hallucinating. I mean that literally. If you asked...

    Maher said, “The people of Idaho, Wyoming, Arkansas, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Kentucky, I know they’re Republican, mostly, but they’re human, right? These are human beings? What the f*ck does it take, in this country, to have being a human being supersede being a Republican?” After former Senator Bob Kerrey (D-NE) stated that there are good people who are supporting Trump, Maher asked, “Can you at this point?” After Kerrey argued that you could, Maher stated, “I don’t get that.” He added, “If the basket fits. Well, if you’re deplorable — I mean, if you have deplorable beliefs, you’re deplorable.”

    HBO's Last Week Tonight host John Oliver pitches a new idea to Donald Trump: Avoid losing to Hillary Clinton by dropping out of the race for president now. "I know you're watching," he said. "Because you watch everything that is said about you." “You’re either going to win or you’re going to lose, and I think both those scenarios end pretty badly for you,” Oliver told the GOP presidential nominee on his HBO series Sunday. “I would like to propose to you a third option and that is, drop out. Simply drop out and tell America this entire candidacy was...
