21 minutes ago

Try as he might, that is. “I certainly disagree with what he said,” Brady said. “I thought it was just divisive.” Also Read: 'Fox & Friends' Host Brian Kilmeade Slams Trump's NFL Attacks: 'Made Things So Much Worse' “I just want to support my teammates,” he continued an expert navigation of the multiple follow-up questions. »

58 minutes ago

“Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver took on (and took down) corporate consolidation on Sunday and no one was spared — not even the company that signs his checks. “Full disclosure here: Even our own parent company Time Warner is currently trying to merge with At&T, which makes this story a little dangerous for us to do,” Oliver said at the start of his lead segment. “Although, you know, that is presuming that At&T executives manage to get their sh—y service working long enough to see it.” Also Read: John Oliver Shreds Megyn Kelly Ahead of Her 'Today' »

John Oliver Shreds Megyn Kelly Ahead of Her ‘Today’ Show Debut (Video)

1 hour ago

John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight” just killed the concept that new “Today” host Megyn Kelly is a “unifying force,” a prominent phrase in NBC’s promotional campaign for her new show. The HBO late-night series aired a highlight reel (of sorts) on Sunday, illustrating some of Kelly’s less illustrious moments from her years at Fox News Channel. A lot of her laughable — to Oliver’s audience, at least — moments had to do with religion and the Black Lives Matter movement.

9 hours ago

Although “What Happened,” the title of Hillary Clinton’s book that chronicles her 2016 run for president and her shocking loss to Donald Trump, is not in question form, George Clooney answered it as if it was. “I never saw her elevate her game. I never saw it,” Clooney told The Daily Beast, referring to, yes, “what happened” to Clinton’s candidacy from his perspective. The “Suburbicon” director was one of the many politically outspoken Hollywood Democrats who were avid Clinton supporters and major donors during her campaign. In retrospect, he says that being “incredibly qualified” for the job wasn’t enough. »

Could Trump’s New Travel Ban Affect the Oscar Race Again?

13 hours ago

President Trump’s original travel ban arguably helped Asghar Farhadi’s “The Salesman” win the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film in February, but don’t expect his newly announced ban to have much effect on the current awards race. That’s because most of the countries on the new list don’t have significant film industries and rarely, if ever, participate in the awards contest. The two that do participate and have announced Oscar entries this year, Iran and Venezuela, are not considered among the top contenders at the moment. Last year, Iran submitted “The Salesman,” which had »

Major spoilers for “Star Trek: Discovery’s” first two episodes. “Star Trek: Discovery” always had a lot to live up to.

‘Teen Wolf’ Showrunner Jeff Davis Reflects on Series Finale, Shares Revival Idea

14 hours ago

Back in 2011, Jeff Davis’ TV adaptation of “Teen Wolf” premiered and quickly became MTV’s first scripted hit. Now, more than six years later, the series has aired its 100th and final episode, and Davis is ready for some time off. The original “Teen Wolf” was a campy ’80s comedy best remembered for a scene where Michael J. Fox surfs on top of a van in goofy creature makeup.
