As previously pointed out here, March 24's Kids’ Choice Awards on Nickelodeon saw a disastrously pitiful rating that was among the lowest ever. This drop was thanks to, in part, due to many of those nominated in music, movies, and TV show categories not being appropriate for children and overt endorsements of the anti-gun March for Our Lives protests.
After seven seasons, ABC’s Scandal has finally aired its last episode. Over the course of 124 episodes, the Shonda Rhimes-produced series has pretty much covered every aspect of the liberal agenda. However, as the finale proves, there’s always time to squeeze in a little more, especially when it comes to knocking white male privilege and promoting gun control. I guess it’s better to go out with an insufferable bang than with an annoying whimper.
Celebrity promotion of liberal views are predictable as death and taxes. But these days the media also take these opinions seriously, trying to turn absurdities into news. The latest example was the media frenzy over a Tweet from Sen. Bernie Sanders promoting 25 year old rapper Cardi B’s economic opinions. The rapper was already a fan of Sanders, having encouraged people to “Vote for Daddy Bernie” during the last Democratic primary.
Yes, it's happening again for the third time this week: ABC’s Designated Survivor joined the growing number of shows focusing on ousting a president from office. Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have a trend. The April 18 episode “Kirkman Agonistes” follows the public leak of audio notes from President Tom Kirkman’s (Kiefer Sutherland) private therapy sessions after the death of his wife. Because of the leaks, the press and even D.C. bureaucrats begin questioning Kirkman’s fitness to lead the nation.
CW’s Black Lightning finally comes to the close of a mostly uneventful yet still obnoxiously SJW first season. The latest comic-book series decides to end on a low note with a "Make America Great Again" reference from the bad guy. I guess the only real supervillain in media nowadays is Trump.
After a lengthy hiatus, CW’s Supergirl has finally returned to fight for truth, justice, and the social justice way. Sure enough, the most recent episode does not disappoint with a reminder on how hard black men have it in America. At least we’re back on schedule.
Showtime’s Homeland has already shown how they're relating the show to the Trump administration this season. Now they've show their true colors by finally reaching the end goal: invoking the 25th Amendment. Yes, I’m sure that forcibly removing the first female president will definitely show President Trump a thing or two.
NBC’s new comedy Champions already had a swing and a miss regarding feminism. Now it’s back trying to deal with the topic of diversity. And by talking about diversity, I am of course referring to the shaming of white people. Unfortunately to some liberals, that’s the same thing.
NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit has been particularly biased for this season, and the latest episode is no exception. Not only do we experience some full-on propaganda for transgenders in the military but a Twitter jab at the president as well. It’s about time I suppose.
Last week’s episode of FX’s The Americans, set in 1987, imagined a U.S. arms control official telling an undercover Soviet KGB operative that he’d heard from a White House insider that President Ronald Reagan has “been forgetful, not focused, almost a different person lately. The man I talked to said he thinks that the President might be going senile.” In the next scene, the agent’s KGB handler worried: “Weinberger and his cronies are even more hard-line than Reagan.”
April 10 is recognized as Equal Pay Day by online feminists, despite the fact that equal pay was achieved in the United States more than five decades ago. No matter, since logic and reason hasn’t stopped feminism yet. The season 7 premiere of Fox’s New Girl emphasizes that perfectly by throwing a empowering women-themed birthday party…for a three-year-old.
The New York Times takes cartoons very seriously, criticizing the long-running Fox comedy The Simpsons for its humorous stereotyping of Indian convenience-store owner Apu. Sopan Deb has the latest on the gripping saga of a humorless comedian who made a documentary, “The Problem With Apu,” attacking The Simpsons for its purportedly racist stereotyping. Never mind that the Simpsons is full of stereotypes of all kinds -- and is a cartoon.
