  • Shrill Abortion Plots, Streaming Live

    03/22/2019 4:45:25 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 15 replies ^ | March 22, 2019 | Brent Bozell and Tim Graham
    Liberals are that strange species that supports abortion on demand. And yet in their strongholds, like the District of Columbia, they hire inspectors to fine restaurants hundreds of dollars for offering their customers plastic straws. It's not surprising that television shows don't base entire plots on the "Straw Cops." But they do insert plots that promote the feminist "empowerment" of abortion. The latest example is the aptly titled show "Shrill," with six episodes streaming on Hulu -- now owned 60 percent by Disney, 30 percent by Comcast and 10 percent by Time Warner. "Shrill" is mostly a show about "fat...
  • Roseanne Barr Tore Apart ‘Low-Rated’ ABC In Her Return To Stand-Up

    Roseanne Barr didn’t go down quietly. As you may recall, over the summer, the comedian, actress, and TV legend found the revival of her classic show Roseanne cancelled after a tweet she made in which she compared a black woman to an ape. During the fall-out, she was quick to go on the likes of Hannity, and to slam ABC for what they did next: taking the remaining cast and crew and launching the spin-off The Connors. Its maiden episode found them killing off “Granny Rose.” You wouldn’t expect someone as volatile as Barr to calm down in the ensuing...
  • David Simon Rips Hollywood Agencies Over Packaging: ‘It Is Theft. It Is Fraud’

    David Simon is urging the Writers Guild of America to file a lawsuit against the four biggest Hollywood talent agencies and the Association of Talent Agents over the practice of packaging. “I’m for filing a civil suit against the ATA and the Big Four for an overt and organized breach of fiduciary duty in which they have effectively pretended to represent clients while taking bribes from studios to keep those clients’ salaries and benefits lowered across the board,” he said in a lengthy blog post. “Looking not merely at civil law, but at the federal statutes against extortion and bribery,...
  • Leno Exposes Late Night’s 'Serious' Problem

    I’ve never seen such a nasty reaction to something so simple, honest, and sincere. Jay Leno appeared on the "Today Show" last week to discuss the importance of monitoring cholesterol. During the interview, Al Roker pivoted to ask if he missed hosting the “Tonight Show.” Leno’s answer detailed the reasons it’s no longer a forum he recognizes or misses. “Now everyone HAS to know your politics…When people see you as one-sided, it just makes it tough,” Leno said. “And look, I did it when Clinton was horny and Bush was dumb. It was just a little easier. You know, now...

    I gotta rant and if its bad enough I throw it out on FR. Please bear with. As I said a million times I record and then watch TV. I do because it is still entertaining for the most part. But L&O:SVU has gone off the rails and finally over the cliff. I started the latest episode last night. A little girl was abducted and then rescued in the first 10 minutes. Hmmmm that was a bit different/strange. So the next scene was with the little girl and her father in the hospital room. After a minute or so in...

    Party on, old dudes! It looks like Wyld Stallyns will make a most bodacious return next year, everybody. On Wednesday, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter revealed that the long-rumored third Bill & Ted movie will actually, finally, officially start shooting this summer—and the thing already has a release date. In an Extremely Pure announcement video, Reeves and Winter joined up in front of the Hollywood Bowl in LA to say that Bill & Ted 3, called Bill & Ted Face the Music, is going into production soon and is slated to hit theaters in August 2020.

    Sarah Silverman has a bone to pick with how certain household items are labeled — and she’s calling for more diversity. The comedian took to Twitter to point out that products like pantyhose and bandages come in shades marked as “nude,” though the peachy-beige tone really only applies to some white people. “I can’t [expletive] believe that there are still ‘nude’ bras and nylons and Band Aids,” she wrote. “If you are a company still using nude to describe an exclusively Caucasian shade in 20[expletive]19 you need to change now or go tha way of zee dinosaur.”

    The production chief for Marvel Studios has added fuel to rumors that its next on-screen leading man will be same-sex attracted. On March 1, the “That Hashtag Show” website published a rumor that an “openly gay” man will be cast as the lead of Marvel Studios’ 2020 superhero movie "The Eternals." “As Marvel Studios begins its search for the cast of the 2020 feature film, 'The Eternals,' we at 'That Hashtag Show' have learned that they are looking to cast an openly gay actor for a lead role in the film,” Charles Murphy wrote. According to Murphy, Marvel Studios president...

    The legal cloud of Jussie Smollett's indictment hangs over "Empire" as the series returns with new episodes Wednesday, raising questions as to whether that uncertainty and off-screen drama will derail the Fox primetime soap -- or perversely, temporarily spur interest in it. . . . The network has already announced that the actor will be left out of the last two episodes to "avoid further disruption on set," although it's unclear how his absence will be explained. That means the seventh hour in this latest run could wind up being his character's last on the series. The program has yet...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, a presidential candidate and a former school teacher, expressed outrage over the scandal in an interview Tuesday with ABC News.

    Actresses and chief executives are among 50 people arrested in a nationwide college admissions cheating scam, authorities announced Tuesday. According to charging documents, actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are among those involved facing charges. The suspects allegedly paid bribes of up to $6 million to get their kids into elite colleges, including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and USC. In most cases, the students did not know their admission was contingent on a bribe. University athletic coaches and administrators of college entrance exams were also among those arrested. The alleged scam centered around a man in California who ran a business...
  • Obama Off Script Angers Black Feminist

    It is a man-bites-dog story when I support or applaud something that former President Barack Obama says or does. You may recall President Obama started a mentoring organization called My Brother’s Keeper. This initiative attempts to provide a responsible, positive message for young African-American men, a demographic plagued by poor lifestyle choices like dropping out of school, having multiple kids out of wedlock with different women, drug and alcohol abuse, gang involvement, and criminal and obnoxious behavior. These urban pathologies have been triggered by what I believe is our most urgent social crisis in the black community—absent fathers.Recent empirical data shows...

    Captain Marvel is going higher, further, faster at the box office. The Marvel film easily soared past its competition for the biggest opening weekend of 2019 and the first title of the year to open to more than $100 million. It won the box office with an estimated opening total of $153 million in ticket sales at 4,310 theaters in the U.S. and Canada from Friday through Sunday. It marks the seventh biggest opening for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the second-biggest debut of a new Marvel character on the big-screen, behind only last year’s record-breaking Black Panther.

    It is both harrowing and infinitely sad to see "Leaving Neverland" and "Surviving R. Kelly,"  two cable television documentaries about the crime of child sexual abuse, its perpetrators and victims. R. Kelly currently sits in a Chicago jail cell for failure to pay child support, while at the same time, years of allegations about his sexual abuse of underage girls, have finally caught up with him. The R&B star says he is unfairly accused and that his career has been ruined by the allegations. "Leaving Neverland" aired last week, profiling two men who say Michael Jackson sexually abused them when...

    Sorry Hollywood, it’s Going to Take a Lot More to Destroy an Asteroid It’s become something of an action movie cliche: an asteroid is hurling towards Earth, its impact will cause a mass extinction, and the only hope for humanity is a ragtag group of astronauts and average Joes who will fly to the asteroid and blow it to pieces using nukes. The idea has been explored so many times by Hollywood that it seems like this is actually something space agencies have planned. And in truth, they are, though the execution may be a little more sophisticated. For decades,...

    NEW YORK (AP) — A lawsuit accused a Russia-born businessman and convicted felon with ties to President Donald Trump of hacking into a Hollywood friend's electronics and accessing confidential information about her celebrity contacts and Hollywood projects. Felix Sater denied those allegations Monday, telling The Associated Press they had absolutely no truth to them. Stella Bulochnikov Stolper, a former manager for the singer Mariah Carey, sued Sater and his personal assistant in New York on Friday, alleging they created an electronic backdoor to tap into her computers, smart phones and other devices.
