See Samantha Bee Visit Unsung Leaders of Mexico City Earthquake Recovery
50 minutes ago
On Full Frontal, Samantha Bee traveled to Mexico City to speak with an unsung group of women who led clean-up and rescue efforts after a devastating earthquake – and in return, received threats and harassment.
The four members of La Brigada Feminista joined volunteer efforts in a long-neglected area where many migrant workers lived. At the site of a collapsed textile factory filled with mostly female laborers, the government spent just two days doing rescue missions before trying to flatten the site, reportedly in an attempt to hide the fact that »

55 minutes ago
Stephen Colbert and Bryan Cranston – filling in for James Corden on The Late Late Show – gleefully slammed Roy Moore on Wednesday. Moore, who was accused of dating multiple underaged girls, lost to Doug Jones in the race for Senator of Alabama on Tuesday.
Colbert poked fun at Moore with a short, satirical Western ditty titled "The Legend of Roy Moore." "Gather round, folks, you'll hear a song, the song of a candidate man/ A man who rode across the land touching teens with his hands," he sang. Later Colbert added, »

1 hour ago
This year, we've asked 10 writers to pick some of their favorite TV episodes from 2017 and weigh in on why they were great stand-alone eps and the highlights of our viewing year. Today: Sam Adams on Bojack Horseman's "Time's Arrow."
Four seasons in, Bojack Horseman fans are used to being knocked for an emotional look. Raphael Bob-Waksberg's animated Netflix series started out unprepossessingly enough as the story of a misanthropic former sitcom star wallowing in residuals payments and self-pity in the Hollywood hills. But it soon became clear that the title character, »

"The range of his persuasion tactics went from sweet-talking me to that one time when, in an attack of fury, he said the terrifying words, 'I will kill you, don't think I can't,'" Hayek wrote. "In his eyes, I was not an artist. I wasn't even a person. I was a thing: not a nobody, but a body."
Hayek wrote that she declined Weinstein's sexual »

Daisy Ridley: 'The Last Jedi' Interview
13 December 2017 6:41 AM, PST
When Daisy Ridley sat down at a crowded Montreal wine bar in late October to do her interview for Rolling Stone's Last Jedi cover story, she had been in Canada for three long months, on a "chaotic" shoot for the Doug Liman sci-fi movie Chaos Walking. She hadn't seen the new Star Wars movie yet, but she spoke about many things – including, memorably, how the franchise combines social relevance with "fucking lasers and shit," as well as her reluctance, at least in that exhausted moment, to play Rey after Episode »
In Praise of 'American Vandal': TV's Sleeper Hit of the Year
12 December 2017 10:45 AM, PST
Streaming services like Netflix often tend to work on a model which favors hype following instead of leading – for every Marvel property or proven commodity like Black Mirror that's preceded by a blitz of hype, there are dozens of series that get released with little fanfare, banking on big leaps of faith that the right folks will find it. (Remember how little advance buzz accompanied Stranger Things before that first weekend turned it into a phenomenon?) Still, on paper, a true-crime satire that harnessed the appeal of both 13 Reasons Why »

12 December 2017 10:41 AM, PST
Jessica Chastain says in a new interview that she was shocked by her Golden Globes nomination yesterday – due in large part to how outspoken she has been about Hollywood's many allegations of sexual misconduct.
"To be honest, I'm mainly surprised about my nomination," she told the New York Times of her nod for Best Actress in a Drama for her new film, Molly's Game. "As an actor, I have a lot of fear, thinking that if I speak my mind, or something that feels like it deviates from the norm as a woman, »

Jimmy Kimmel reentered the national healthcare debate on Monday, ripping congress for failing to fund the Children's Health Insurance Program (Chip), which "covers around nine million American kids whose parents make too much money to qualify for Medicaid but don't have access to affordable coverage through their jobs."
Kimmel told his viewers how important it was to support Chip while holding his infant son Billy, who underwent open-heart surgery last week. "Daddy cries on TV but Billy doesn't," Kimmel joked, smiling through tears.
He reminded viewers that other children who »

Golden Globes 2018: 10 Biggest Wtf Snubs and Surprises
11 December 2017 7:58 AM, PST
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association dropped their nominations for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards this morning, shouting out some brand new TV shows and adding some momentum to some of the biggest awards season campaigns – The Shape of Water! Three Billboards! Dunkirk! A few other major players, of course, got left off the lineup in a big way – the Globes have a history of some headslapping choices (remember The Tourist for Best Movie?

'The Last Jedi's New Hope: Meet 'Star Wars' Breakout Kelly Marie Tran
11 December 2017 6:34 AM, PST
Kelly Marie Tran grew up dreaming of Hogwarts, not Dagobah. In fact, when she got the script for Star Wars: The Last Jedi back in 2015, she had never seen a Star Wars movie - not even The Force Awakens, which hadn't yet come out. She still landed the most prominent new role in the latest entry to the galaxy-far-far-away franchise, playing maintenance-worked-turned-Resistance-hero Rose Tico. Along the way, she caught up on the saga. "I like A New Hope the best," she says, referring to the original 1977 movie. A San Diego »
'The Walking Dead' Midseason Finale Recap: The Son Also Rises
10 December 2017 8:59 PM, PST
Back in the fall of 2015, The Walking Dead showrunner Scott M. Gimple attempted a noble, not-all-that-successful experiment with narrative structure. To wit: The show would be spending an entire half-season – eight full episodes – tracking just a couple of days in the life of Rick Grimes, as he and his associates tried and failed to secure the Alexandria Safe-Zone from a nearby walker horde. This season, Gimple gave this concept another go. The fall premiere began with the good guys leading a multi-front assault on Negan, the Saviors and all their scattered compounds. »
