Freeform’s The Bold Type, which centers around three young women who work at fictional Scarlet magazine (based on real-life Cosmopolitan magazine), is one of the most left-leaning, not to mention inappropriate shows, on television right now. (Freeform was formerly ABC Family and The Bold Type has been dubbed a teen drama, despite its extremely adult content.)
TBS’s People of Earth, a comedy that centers around a support group of people who have been abducted by aliens, hilariously took a shot at feminist, interpretative dance art on the Monday, August 28 episode, “Aftermath.”
In the current troubled climate of race relations in our country, you would think that Hollywood would be careful to avoid anything that would be construed as racist, but instead, they often seem to join the mainstream media in stirring up racial divisions. Oprah’s show Greenleaf demonstrated just that on its Wednesday, August 23, episode, “Changing Season.”
Perhaps the writers at The Bold Type have been reading the many stories posted here on Newsbusters about their extreme leftist slant and inappropriate material for teens and are feeling guilty for their typical, liberal Hollywood ways. Because Tuesday, August 22’s episode, “The End of the Beginning” took a shocking turn for the better by introducing a likeable, black, male conservative character. Well, the likeable part lasted for about five seconds.
Season 16 of Lifetime’s fashion hit Project Runway premiered Thursday, August 17, with a focus on designing for all body types, ranging “in size from two to 22,” according to designer and the show’s judge Tim Gunn. Oh, and a "dude in a dress." Because, of course.
Oprah’s OWN Network premiered the latest season of its mega-church drama Greenleaf, which centers around Calvary World Ministries and the Greenleaf family who runs it, on Tuesday, August 15. The show picked back up where it left off…with a newly-divorced Christian father struggling with his gay desires.
The July 25 episode of The Bold Type “If You Can’t Do It with Feeling,” ran with the idea of the Trump era creating a culture of fear and hate, and used that false fear to excuse violence by the left.
Freeform’s The Bold Type, which is dubbed a teen drama and centers around three young women who work at Scarlet magazine (which is based on Cosmopolitan magazine) has pretty much covered anything and everything related to sex and beaten us over the head with it in every episode so far. So, what’s left on the leftist Hollywood agenda? Abortion, of course.
TBS’s Wrecked is comical parody of the show Lost, known for its outlandish storylines and it’s one of my favorite shows on television right now. But Tuesday, July 11’s episode, “Tony Pepperoni,” went too far by making light of a very serious topic - abortion.
Every now and then, there comes a show that is so full of offensive material that you don’t even know where to start. Enter Freeform’s The Bold Type.
Netflix premiered its new original show GLOW on Friday, June 23. GLOW stands for “Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling,” and though the show is inspired by the real-life GLOW from the 80’s, the fictionalized version differs greatly from the original.
I used to be a brand ambassador for The View. It was beyond frustrating to see the way Elizabeth Hasselbeck was treated on the show and in the press. She didn’t stand a chance with 4-5 staunchly liberal women there to bully her whenever she presented a conservative opinion. Enter Heather Flynn-Kellogg (Fiona Gubbelman) on VH1’s Daytime Divas.
The Disney-owned Freeform channel premiered the pilot episode of it’s brand new show The Bold Type Tuesday, June 20, and though Variety magazine dubbed it a “teen drama” (Freeform was formerly ABC Family and is geared towards family programming), the show is very adult-oriented, from rampant sex scenes to sex toy demonstrations. All very not teen friendly!
VH1 premiered its new scripted series Daytime Divas on Monday, June 6, with lots of drama, catfighting, and controversy. The show is based on the book Satan’s Sisters by Star Jones, former co-host of The View, and follows the lives of female daytime talk TV hosts of The Lunch Hour and their behind-the-scenes interactions.
Showtime’s new comedy I’m Dying Up Here premiered on Sunday, June 4. The show, produced by Jim Carrey, centers around a group of up and coming comics trying to become successful in the 1970s. Right off the bat, the show dove into the controversial topic of abortion, with the comic applauding the legalization of abortion. He encourages all the men to cheer, saying, "That's a big win for us, too."
When you set out to watch a show with a name like I Love Dick, Amazon Prime’s newest streaming series which debuted Friday, May 12, you should already be prepared for the shock value that’s inevitable with such a title. But nothing can truly prepare you for the vile filth that this show assaults you with.
In a show that has already stunned and offended many, Monday night’s season finale of Lucifer on Fox ended with more of the same insulting anti-Christian agenda and Biblically inaccurate storyline that it’s been pushing on viewers from the start.
The first of two Family Guy episodes that aired on Sunday night, “Dearly Deported,” played both sides of the immigration debate and threw in a random swipe at President Trump and his daughter Ivanka for good measure.
The series finale of Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders on May 18 ended with an emotional, heart-tugging scene and a beautiful prayer acknowledging our Creator and honoring our country and those who fight for it in the Armed Forces.
