The opening monologue of the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, airing September 17 on NBC, included a little of the usual political slams worked into Hollywood entertainment award shows. The ceremony hosts, Saturday Night Live’s "Weekend Update" hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che, took swipes at Christian conservatives and Roseanne fans.
Only two episodes into its return and Sarah Silverman’s I Love You America is already probably the most obnoxious show of 2018. After a lousy hate-fest last week, the Hulu series continues to promote its hatred for all things right-wing. This week is no different, except with more profane jabs at President Trump.
Contrary to popular Hollywood belief, our country’s not going down the tubes because our president is Donald Trump. Our country’s going down the tubes thanks to shows like HBO’s The Deuce being renewed. The David Simon-produced, James Franco-led series continues to exploit its MA-rating under the guise of being edgy television. Even more shocking, they seem to be getting away with it!
Fans of Chelsea Handler and Michelle Wolf should rejoice. While Netflix had the good sense to cancel those shows, Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman has somehow returned despite a horrible, terrible, no-good, very bad first season. For a show that claims to “love” America, it sure hates a good part of it.
FX’s new show Mayans MC is a spinoff of the biker drama Sons of Anarchy, which finished its seven-season run almost four years ago. That connection seems fitting as the new series covers many of the same issues, such as gruesome violence and a love for gun deaths. However, this time around, they manage to insert a new political edge. These days, what show doesn’t?
The Washington Post knows a thing or two about being partisan as a business strategy. So the paper brought a rare level of expertise to a Friday article about how super-charging late night comedy shows with anti-Trump shtick is good for business and gaining a more loyal fanbase. According to The Post, being woke doesn’t work for all entertainers, but for many willing to commit to the political routine, Trump is the gift that keeps on giving.
It’s just like AMC’s Preacher to want to go out on a low note. We’ve had our share of gruesome violence and general blasphemy this season, so now it’s time to go political. The August 26 finale “The Light Above” seems keen to remind us that if you want to “Make America Great Again,” you’re in line with Hitler…somehow.
Famous race-baiter Al Sharpton has been reflecting on Aretha Franklin since her passing yesterday. Apparently he found that the best way to honor her legacy was using it against his political opponents like President Donald Trump. As Sharpton took a daytime stroll through the streets of Manhattan, TMZ reporters approached the pastor and asked him about how he felt regarding the death of the “Queen of Soul.”
TVLand’s Teachers is about to wrap up its third season. What better way to celebrate that than through another leftist push? In this penultimate episode, we get one bizarre salute to the religion of climate change. The August 7 episode “Step By Stepsister” features a talent show at Fillmore Elementary School, and art teacher Ms. Cannon (Caitlin Barlow) tries to get some non-conventional students to participate.
CW strikes again to defeat the bigots and the homophobes. After just recently casting transgender activist Nicole Maines as a transgender superhero, the broadcasting company has made another statement by casting openly lesbian Ruby Rose as Batwoman.
If PC can make 100-year-old statues disappear, it certainly can erase rock n’ roll songs. This summer’s deluxe re-issue of rock band Guns N’ Roses’ 1987 album, Appetite for Destruction, was packaged without an original song due to homophobic and racist content.
