Leonardo DiCaprio won Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama at the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards, but you knew the lefty global warming extremist wouldn't just stick to thanking his family and friends. Watch him rail against "corporate interests" exploiting Native Americans' "indigenous land," and "protect[ing] this planet for future generations."
NBC (“the only network with zero nominations") had to know things would be bad when they asked Ricky Gervais to host the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards for the fourth time, but did they know it would be THAT awful? Gervais literally started the show with the words, “Shut up, you disgusting, pill-popping, sexual-deviant scum” – and it only went downhill from there.
It is the 15th and final season of Fox's reality singing competition show American Idol and they saved the best audition moment of the night for last. You will definitely want to watch this - and have the tissues handy!
Everyone’s talking about how the wrong person was crowned Miss Universe but did you hear what Miss USA said about gun control or Miss France about terrorism?
While Steve Harvey majorly screwed up last night when he announced the wrong 2015 Miss Universe winner, some of the contestants really stepped in it themselves during the question and answer portion of the competition.
Last night’s winter finale of the new ABC drama Quantico and was chockfull of unrealistic politics – and unintentional comedy! The present day storyline of the episode “Inside” had the Democratic National Convention starting in New York City the day after Grand Central Station was bombed and over 100 people were killed. Right, the DNC would TOTALLY take place as scheduled the day after a terrorist bombing in the same city!
Your Friday night funny: Tim Allen, as Mike Baxter in the ABC comedy Last Man Standing, gets in hits at the Nanny State and King Obama in this scene from the episode "Gift of the Wise Man."
Liberals must be so disappointed with the much-hyped “gun control” episode of South Park. There was a big build up that the show’s season 19 finale, “PC Principal Final Justice,” would see every South Park citizen arm themselves and lead to an explosive conclusion, but that never happened, much to their chagrin.
Tonight's Fresh Off the Boat episode, "The Real Santa," featured a hilarious scene mocking political correctness run amok in our schools at Christmas time.
When Evan and his parents go to the third grade school play, they are told that a new law bans "any religious, spiritual, or gender-y connotations." Instead of Santa, this year will feature a "pan-cultural seasonal entity!"
BOOM! Hollywood just dropped some truth about Hamas’ tactic of trying to get as many Palestinian civilians killed as they can for propaganda purposes in its war against Israel! On the 10th episode of ABC’s Quantico, Nimah Anwar, a Lebanese Muslim, attempts to impugn the integrity of Simon Asher, an American Jew, by revealing the truth about his relationship with Israel - and fails miserably.
The episode "Truth and Advertising" takes big shots at topics liberals consider to be sacrosanct. South Park is the only show that can get away with portraying Bruce "Caitlyn" Jenner as anything other than "stunning and brave." Suffice it to say, South Park is NOT a "safe space" for "Caitlyn."
ABC's FBI drama Quantico continued it's anti-Israel plotline last night in the episode "Guilty." Simon Asher has already been revealed to be an IDF soldier who did things in Gaza "that haunt me every single day of my life." Last week we saw him talking to an Israeli bomb maker about continuing violence in the West Bank. And now, based upon a new flashback scene, it is looking increasingly likely that Simon will turn out to be the terrorist mastermind.
CBS just aired an episode of The Good Wife that brought the undercover videos exposing how Planned Parenthood sells baby parts to a whole new audience of millions – but whether the audience even knew the storyline was based on real videos is unknown. There has been a near media blackout on showing the videos, although CBS has aired the most coverage of the big three networks.
ABC’s Scandal just aired what was in effect a one hour long commercial for Planned Parenthood and boy are they grateful for the lies that were just spread on their behalf to millions of viewers! Here are the top 5 most ridiculously over-the-top pro-Planned Parenthood propaganda scenes, in chronological order.
ABC's Scandal just crossed a sickening line in the episode "Baby It's Cold Outside." The entire hour was an advertisement for Planned Parenthood, but the absolute worst scene was a montage set to the Christmas hymn "Silent Night," a song that celebrates the birth of Christ, while main character Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) has an abortion, killing her and the president's baby.
On the South Park episode "Sponsored Content," PC culture is upended when a student with a disability uses un-PC language. PC Principal is on the warpath to find out who printed a headline with the non-PC word "retarded." The culprit? Jimmy, the principled Editor-in-Chief of Super School News, who has cerebral palsy.
In the Fresh Off the Boat episode "Huangsgiving," recurring gay character Oscar Chow brings his new boyfriend Michael to the Huang's Thanksgiving dinner. He excitedly introduces him to Jessica, saying, "Michael listens to NPR!" - and he proudly displays the tote to prove it.
In the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks, many shows have postponed or replaced episodes this week that have terrorism storylines. But the main plot of ABC’s Quantico is a terrorist bombing at Grand Central Station in New York City and the flashback of the events leading up to that day. To acknowledge the terror attacks (kind of) without having to completely cancel their show, this message appeared at the beginning of last night’s episode, “Over.”
In the episode “The Big Sleepover” of Last Man Standing, Eve’s friend has overstayed her welcome at the Baxter household and interfered with Mike’s (Tim Allen) relationship with his daughter. Eve finally finds a way to get her friend to find another place to stay because she doesn’t want her dad “moping around like Obama got a third term.”
Social Justice Warriors just had their moment in the sun on the Grey’s Anatomy episode "Something Against You." Dr. Maggie Pierce had a big speech on racial micro-aggressions that concluded with her telling Dr. Amelia Shepherd to “check your white privilege.”
When Officer Barbrady accidentally shoots an unarmed 6-year-old Latino boy, the town of South Park rises up to get rid of the police, in the episode "Naughty Ninjas." (“We've only had a Whole Foods for a month, and already, we don't need cops. So cool.”)
