    Over 80 percent of prime-time network family comedy television shows have scenes in which adult characters use sexually explicit dialogue in front of children, a conservative media watchdog has warned. In a new report released Monday, the Parents Television Council has documented the widespread use of sexually charged language in television shows across multiple networks that the networks themselves are deeming to be family-friendly. "What we are seeing is the frog in the boiling water, where as the temperature goes up, the frog doesn't realize how hot it has gotten," Winter told The Christian Post in an interview. "We have...

    Jemele Hill, the ESPN commentator who has made controversial comments about President Trump, is leaving the sports network, according to reports. A buyout of her reported $2.5 million-per-year contract has been completed and her last day will be Friday, sources told the New York Post. The separation was due to Hill's desire to be involved in politics, while ESPN wants to be apolitical, the Post reported.

    By now it has become predictable old news to hear that Fox News Channel defeated their cable news rivals CNN and MSNBC in the weekly ratings, as they have finished number one out of the big three in total average viewers per day for 31 consecutive weeks, according to Adweek. Nor is it a surprise to hear that Fox beat their rivals in prime time viewership either, as they have done so for 11 consecutive weeks now. What is somewhat surprising, and incredibly laughable, is that CNN — the formerly vaunted crown jewel of the establishment media — has sunk...
  • How the Kardashians became more powerful than the royals

    Like it or not, the Kardashians have risen from reality-TV stars — famed for sex tapes, plastic surgery and shotgun weddings — to America’s royal family. Critics have discounted the clan as an unfortunate blip on our cultural radar. But the ladies have taken their 15 minutes of fame and created a dynasty that might just be the most powerful in the world. In May, Kim successfully lobbied President Trump to commute the prison sentence of a 63-year-old grandmother, Alice Marie Johnson, who had served more than 20 years on drug charges. Kylie, meanwhile, single-handedly tanked Snapchat’s stock in February...
  • Feminists Plot Murder of Pro-Life Congressman on AMC's Lefty Drama

    Season one of AMC’s Dietland finally draws to a close, and what a journey it’s been. Starting from a feminist group murdering for the #MeToo movement, to playing the oppression Olympics, the show is truly the pinnacle of third-wave feminism. To prove that, we leave off on the personal targeting of pro-life members of Congress. The July 30 season finale “Bedwomb” has our lead Plum (Joy Nash) actually working inside the feminist murder group called "Jennifer" as they continue their goal of terrorizing the male population. After their mindless male-killing, ridiculous manifesto, and the open degradation of the president as...
  • ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Literally Chains Woman Barefoot and Pregnant

    Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale prides itself on painting a dark image for women in Trump’s America, even though the show has absolutely nothing in common with Trump’s actual America. Still, that doesn’t stop the series from bringing its #Resistance narrative to life in the most ridiculous ways. The next stop is taking the phrase “barefoot and pregnant” a little too seriously. The May 9 episode “Other Women” comes after June/Offred (Elizabeth Moss) is found and recaptured trying to escape Gilead. Being pregnant, she remains invaluable to the society despite how anti-women they clearly are. To really drive that point forward,...

    Hillary Clinton is setting her sights on a new office: executive producer. The former secretary of state is teaming with Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television to bring Elaine Weiss' critically acclaimed book The Woman's Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote to the small screen. The drama will mark Clinton's debut as an exec producer. The book, published in March, follows the activists who led the decades-long fight to grant women the right to vote and sheds light on how close the battle to ratify the 19th Amendment really was. The book celebrates those who changed history and laid the...

    On Saturday, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough accused President Donald Trump of forcing the summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un for the headlines. “Proving once again that only fools rush in, Trump forced a summit for cheap headlines,” Scarborough wrote. He added: “In the process, he gave legitimacy to the most oppressive communist regime on the planet, further damaged the United States and made himself look like a fool.” He also included a link to a Washington Post article that read, in part: “In a sharp signal that denuclearization negotiations with North Korea will be drawn out and difficult,...

    The CW's Supergirl is casting a transgender character who will play a significant role in the DC Comics-based show's upcoming fourth season, ComicBook.com has learned from multiple sources. This news originates in a casting notice for a character called “Nia Nal,” described as a transgender woman in her early 20s. The character is being cast with open ethnicity, meaning that they do not have a specific ethnic background in mind. She may be positioned to take over the newsroom, as she comes in with a strong journalism background a la Snapper Carr and is described as a “young Cat Grant...

    While Fox News continues to dominate in the world of cable, CNN’s audience continues to shrink, reports TV Newser. In all of cable last week (not just cable news), Fox News was number one in primetime, averaging an incredible 2.513 million viewers. Fox News even humiliated second place MSNBC, which averaged just 1.78 million primetime viewers. But way, way, way down in 13th place, below even the Food Network, sits far-left CNN at number 13 and an average of just 914,000 viewers — which is about a third of Fox’s numbers. In total day viewers, Fox News is again number...

    Her name is Monroe Christine. She is twenty months old. She was born on television. You see, Monroe belongs to a reality television star and his partner—Jeff Lewis and Gage Edwards of Bravo’s Flipping Out. Her conception, gestation, and birth were part of the drama of the show, and now her parties and wardrobe and babbling continue to be part of the show. The men will not do business with the woman who gave birth to Monroe ever again. Her name is Alexandra Trent, and she’s suing the men and Bravo. As part of the transaction, Alexandra agreed to have...

    A new report shows Samantha Bee's late night show "Full Frontal" hasn't been able to regain its advertisers after the host attacked Ivanka Trump in May. The liberal comedian came under fire when she used an extreme vulgarity to slam Ivanka Trump in her monologue on May 30 over a photograph the first daughter shared on social media. "You know, Ivanka, that's a beautiful photo of you and your child...But let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad's immigration practices, you feckless c---. He listens to you," Bee said. Bee apologized on a June 6...

    TBS is expected to increase network oversight on Samantha Bee’s show after the comedian drew scrutiny last week for making a vulgar comment about Ivanka Trump. A source told The Hollywood Reporter that network management will work with Bee and the crew on her show “Full Frontal” to prevent future incidents that could alienate advertisers or spark backlash. The comedian sparked a firestorm last week when she called Trump a "feckless c---" during a segment on her show about the Trump administration enforcing a policy that separates migrant children from their families. Bee reportedly had full creative license on the...

Meanwhile, the company’s positive impression rating with Democrats has risen by 15 percent in the same period. While Netflix maintains strong overall approval ratings from the American public, data shows that on a...

    There is bad news and there is good news for Chris Hayes, host of MSNBC's All In with Chris Hayes. The bad news is that his audience size is much smaller than that of Fox News star Tucker Carlson in the same time period. The good news is that Chris Hayes is #1 in "Social Media Ranking." Huh? The Hollywood Reporter explains about Social Media Ranking which apparently did not exist until very recently.

    Hollywood’s left-leaning politics has made the industry a bęte noire among conservatives for decades. But Netflix has made some recent moves that have especially rankled Republicans. In March, the streamer named Susan Rice — former national security adviser to President Obama, and a conservative target in the Bengazi scandal — to its board of directors. Last month, Netflix officially announced an exclusive multiyear deal with the Obamas’ Higher Ground Productions for original programming. And last week, it premiered “The Break with Michelle Wolf” — a late-night-style show from the comedian who delivered a blistering takedown of the Trump administration and...
