CBS’s Blue Bloods is usually known for being friendly to our police heroes. But in Friday’s episode, “Legacy,” the show suddenly took a PC turn as Police Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) went completely out of character by sympathizing with an illegal immigrant over one of his officers to the point of firing her even though she did everything “by the book.”
ABC's Modern Family had fun getting a little dig in at “crazy” leftist extremist Jane Fonda on Wednesday night’s episode, “Written in the Stars.”
Of all the television shows for the husband of Sarah Palin to make an appearance on, Todd Palin strangely chose TBS’s extremely liberal comedy The Detour. Produced by leftist commentator Samantha Bee and husband Jason Jones, the show was originally based on the real-life family road trips of Bee, Jones and their children, but has now devolved into vile material that Palin should have thought twice about associating himself with.
In the immortal words of the late, great Ronald Reagan, there you go again, Superior Donuts. This time, the extremely liberal show that seeks to teach leftist lessons to its audience every week, claimed that Obama is the first and last black president because white people “gave us one just to shut us up,” then got “so mad at having a black president that they elected an orange one.”
Just when you thought Hollywood couldn’t sink any lower in their depravity and twisted attempts at humor, especially when it comes to child actors, along comes Tuesday’s episode of TBS’s The Detour, “The Stop.” Which were my thoughts exactly as I watched. “Please, for the literal love of God, make it stop.”
In case you haven’t seen the overused, far-left, anti-Trump hashtag, #Resist enough, the extremely liberal CBS “comedy” Superior Donuts made sure to repeat it in an outrageously biased and inaccurate portrayal of the debunked gender wage gap myth on Monday’s episode, “Sofia’s Choice.” And they threw in a bit of male-bashing for good measure, too.
CBS’s cop drama Blue Bloods once again did a masterful job of defending the honor and sacrifice of hardworking police officers while addressing the controversial topic of race relations and the hostile, thankless environment today’s officers must work in.
If you’ve ever watched The Big Bang Theory or its new spin-off Young Sheldon, you already know that both shows love to remind viewers how much main character Sheldon doesn’t believe in God and likes to bash Christianity. But just in case you missed the 5,924,835 references that came before, Thursday night’s episode of Young Sheldon, “Demons, Sunday School, and Prime Numbers,” made sure to remind everyone once again.
It may only have one season, but CBS’s drama Wisdom of the Crowd has made every effort to put itself in the running as the top leftist agenda show on TV. The show seems to have a particular bent for feminist lectures, which is interesting considering it was canceled over sexual assault allegations against star Jeremy Piven. Sunday’s episode, “Alpha Test” was no exception.
ABC’s American Housewife revisited their touching storyline where main character Katie's (Katy Mixon) friend Doris (Ali Wong) was angry over being pregnant with her fourth “creature,” whom she compared to parasitic lice. In Wednesday's episode, "Blue Christmas," Doris is in the hospital ready to give birth on Christmas Day - which also makes her angry and causes her to use new terms of endearment for her baby such as, “this thing” and “son-of-a-bitch.” Can't you just feel the Christmas spirit already?
CBS’s Superior Donuts tried to get into the Christmas spirit with their Monday, December 11, episode “Homeless for the Holidays,” but their outright disdain for capitalism and businesses quickly put a damper on things. Of course, the show known for its extremist liberal views can’t go one episode without being a Scrooge to its conservative viewers (if there are any left).
CBS’s comedy Man With a Plan gave viewers a liberal lecture on sexism while featuring women as woke and men as ignorant dolts. The show centers around husband and father Adam (Matt LeBlanc) who starts spending more time with his kids when his wife Andi (Liza Snyder) goes back to work.
CBS’s comedy Superior Donuts is known for its liberal lectures on a variety of topics. But the Monday, December 4 episode, “Error of Admission” had its white characters “whitesplain” affirmative action to a black character, encouraging him to use the color of his skin as an advantage when applying to schools.
As with most streaming shows of late, at least the ones that try to be edgy (which means pretty much all of them), it takes a minute to process what you’ve watched sometimes. Such is the case with Netflix’s Lady Dynamite which so far tops the list of confusing and bizarre streaming shows.
CBS’s Monday, November 27 episode of Superior Donuts, “Flour Power,” was filled with liberal lectures on political correctness, with particular attention paid to racism, “homophobia,” and sexism. Of course, hate is wrong in any form, but as we know, the leftist PC police tend to go overboard with what they deem unacceptable behavior, and this episode was no exception.
Fox’s The Last Man on Earth spent most of its Sunday, November 19 episode touting feminism and a lesbian relationship, then strangely made the argument towards the end of the show that genders no longer exist, and therefore, neither does “gay.”
CBS’s Wisdom of the Crowd is at it again, this time trying to teach us about feminism and sexism while its main star faces down accusations of sexual assault. The show centers around a crowd-sourced crime-fighting platform called “Sophe,” created by Silicon Valley tech innovator Jeffrey Tanner (Jeremy Piven) in an attempt to find out who murdered his daughter. In the process, he ends up helping to solve other crimes with the public’s help, via their input on Sophe.
TNT’s Major Crimes continued its all-out assault on the Catholic Church and priests in its Tuesday, November 24 episode, “Sanctuary City: Part 3.” They also kept up with their caricature of deranged, gun-toting, right-wing white males who oppose illegal immigration to the point of wanting illegals dead, and, for good measure, took a quick jab at homeschooling, too.
CBS’s Wisdom of the Crowd has already built up an anti-conservative reputation despite only being five episodes in, so it should come as no surprise that the sixth episode, “Trade Secrets,” that aired Sunday, November 12, took more shots at the right.
When the horrific shooting in Vegas occurred last month, Hollywood rightly cancelled two movie premieres out of respect for the victims of the tragedy. But CBS’s Young Sheldon felt it was okay to air an episode, immediately after the shooting at a small-town Texas church, that depicted a small-town Texas church service with main character Sheldon (Iain Armitage) stating that he wanted to “destroy” the pastor to prove that God does not exist.
