The coronavirus pandemic has claimed another victim: the Lights Out With David Spade weeknight program on Comedy Central. Spade's show was a rarity: A late night comedy show not fixated on bashing Donald Trump and Republicans. The show featured host Spade and a revolving panel of guests discussing pop culture news. It stopped production on March 12, joining hundreds of other shows in shutting down due to the COVID-9 illness.
Comedy Central’s Sam Bee’s got to get her digs in on Trump’s legal team, but is she really that stupid that she’s going to slime them all as sexual predators when she herself is such a big fan of predator-enabler Hillary Clinton?
Dear Hollywood writers, to quote Festivus founder Seinfeld's Frank Costanza, "I've got a lot of problems with you people, and now you're going to hear about it!" Since its December 23, it is time for Newsbusters to air its many grievances with television in a proper Festivus spirit. So I’ve grabbed my aluminum Festivus pole to give you all a piece of my mind.
I know it’s South Park and nothing’s sacred, but come on! Did they really have to have Santa AND Jesus snorting cocaine in their season finale Christmas episode? On Wednesday’s “Christmas Snow” episode, South Park had too many drunk driving crashes so Santa got a county ordinance to stop all liquor sales until January 2.
Television can be something of a wasteland without much for us to celebrate, so it makes us even more thankful for the shows that portray a conservative message. It's nice to see our values represented, and we are grateful to these shows for making that happen, even if they're not always all that friendly. As Thanksgiving approaches, here are 4 shows that conservatives can be thankful for from this fall season.
Last week, South Park aired a classic episode that skewered the trans athlete phenomenon. But IndieWire author Jude Dry, whose pronouns are listed on Twitter as “they/them/theirs,” was not amused. Dry's IndieWire article this Wednesday hilariously claimed the episode “provoked an immediate and universal backlash,” (only if backlash means laughter).
On Wednesday, South Park illustrated the absurdity of allowing men who identify as women into female athletic competitions, in a way only South Park can, in the episode titled "Strong Woman."
South Park's "Season Finale" episode, which is not actually the season finale, really went off on President Trump and Rudy Giuliani Wednesday night.
On Tuesday, The Daily Show host Trevor Noah sat down with actor/director Edward Norton to talk about his new movie “Motherless Brooklyn.” While most of the conversation focused on the movie that Norton starred in, directed, wrote, and produced, Noah and Norton could not resist taking shots at President Trump; comparing him to a “racist landlord from New York who’s destroying the world” and referring to him as “our insane clown President.”
The Daily Show loves to hold politicians to account, speak truth to power, right? Well, maybe if you’re a Republican. On Thursday, host Trevor Noah gushed over Hillary Clinton, wondering if the Democrat ever gets tired of all the “cheering” wherever she goes. Instead of hard-hitting satire, he offered this: “Does this ever get, like, tired, just walking around and people cheering for you when you walk into rooms?”
South Park's newest episode, "Let Them Eat Goo" which aired Wednesday mocks LeBron James and his lack of defense of free speech in the current crisis of Hong Kong against China. The episode concentrates on diets and plant-based foods, and on the students at South Park's public school who are protesting the unhealthy food they are being fed, especially meat from animals.
On Wednesday’s edition of The Daily Show, correspondent Roy Wood Jr. interviewed President Trump’s primary challenger, Bill Weld, and convened “a focus group of Trump voters to see if there really are Republicans thirsty for something new.” While the panel definitely had some misgivings about the President, all of them indicated that they would support him again in 2020; much to Wood’s horror.
