Apparently, audiences can’t get enough of the teen rape, masturbation, drug abuse, and dozens of penises that are showcased on HBO’s Euphoria. The popularity of the show has convinced the network to renew the grotesque drama for a second season. If audiences are lucky, maybe the on-screen penis count will hit over a hundred before the new season premiere.
Unfunny lefties have taken over the world of comedy and left it for dead, but all hope is not lost.

On June 19, The Hollywood Reporter fashioned a list of the top 40 “most powerful people in comedy” for 2019. It’s a predictable gaggle of reliable lefties and reads more like a Wanted poster for the gang that murdered comedy. The first big-name entry was Sacha Baron Cohen of Borat fame. Though since the 2006 blockbuster hit, the liberal Cohen has struggled to reclaim his “glory” days.
CBS This Morning co-hosts on Wednesday read aloud the glowing praise for fellow liberal co-host Gayle King. Tony Dokoupil held up the style section of the Washington Post and quoted the gushing praise about the “soothing voice of reason.” King listened along as Dokoupil cheered, “I thought I might talk about a little article I found today.” Not exactly showcasing his colleague’s modesty, he told viewers: “Not only does she have a Washington Post cover but a Hollywood Reporter cover. You’re our cover girl this morning. And a choice quote from the Washington Post article which I think sums you up well here.”
From Flavor of Love to Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?, there have been some pretty crazy dating shows during the reality TV era. Some of them have included LGBTQ contestants but never before has the entire cast been “sexually fluid." MTV to the rescue!
Disney CEO Bob Iger has weighed in on Georgia’s “Heartbeat Bill,” threatening to pull the company’s film productions from the state if Governor Kemp’s Bill goes into law. It just goes to show that no matter how many theme parks Disney creates or beloved childhood franchises it churns out, its true calling is maximizing stock price, innocent babies be damned.

A pro-Trump play set to take the stage in June in the nation’s capital is homeless, following the theater’s decision to back out. The Hollywood Reporter said on May 29, that the Mead Theater (part of Studio Theater) cancelled journalist and conservative filmmaker Phelim McAleer’s production FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers.

How dark are things in Trump’s America? So bad that left-wing comedian Sacha Baron Cohen told Variety, “[W]e are past that point” where politics is no longer funny and “there is a danger” to not taking things seriously. “I think you need people to remain repulsed,” he said, urging them to keep up “their passion, and bring it to the voting booth.”
Hollywood’s hot new trend is to boycott the entire state of Georgia because Governor Brian Kemp signed a bill making it harder to kill unborn babies. Following her threatened boycott in March, one-time actress and full-time shrew Alyssa Milano had already convinced David Simon, creator of The Wire, to join the fad. Now there are few other big celebs getting in on the action.

Taking a play out of Kathy Griffin’s playbook, the latest Cannes Film Festival entry is all about insane feminism; feminism for whom true power lies only in decapitating President Donald Trump and holding his bloody head aloft. Geez, we get it. They hate Trump. But even the Hollyweirdos need to admit that this trope is a little tired.
