What did I just watch? I mean, I know I just watched the November 2 episode of Grey's Anatomy, "Come on Down to My Boat, Baby" but, in the larger sense, what did I just watch? It is truly amazing to me that this show is still on the air and, after this episode, I'm convinced that the only ratings it has are the people who watch it out of pure schadenfreude, those who watch it just to see what kind of insanity show creator Shonda Rhimes has in store for us this week. Certainly it's not because anyone needed to be taught this week's lesson- don't carry a loaded gun in your vagina.
This is war. Hollywood is arming themselves with the written word and preparing to do battle in politics. With the fall television season, Hollywood writers and actors bring a barrage of material aimed at portraying President Trump and his policies in the worst light possible. As of September, there are 16 scripted television shows either already airing or scheduled to air that focus on attacking Trump in their plots.
Earlier this year, this space spotlighted the embarrassing predicament that ABC and its cable operations (including Disney Channel and ESPN) have gotten The Walt Disney Company in: “Most television executives would have stopped the corruption going on at both networks a long time ago, but [Ben] Sherwood might be looking for a way to profit from the liberal bleed infecting both broadcasters.”
On Thursday, ABC cancelled the Tim Allen sitcom Last Man Standing, which had been running on the network for six seasons. During the 2012 election, ABC censored a joke on the show calling then-president Barack Obama a communist. And now ABC has cancelled Last Man Standing allegedly because of a dispute by the show’s distributor 20th Century Fox.
As most readers may know by now, one of the biggest Trump-haters in Hollywood is television producer Shonda Rhimes, a fanatical progressive who has created the highly successful prime time soap operas Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal for ABC. Rhimes is now admitting she is in a “trauma” as a result of her candidate in Hillary Clinton, losing the 2016 presidential election.
It’s no secret that writer and show creator Shonda Rhimes, who is responsible for hits such as Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder (by becoming an abortionist?) and The Catch, is a strong pro-abortion advocate. Not only does she make zero effort to hide her view on the controversial topic or try to appear bias-free, she now has gone so far as to join the board of abortion-giant Planned Parenthood.
Thursday night’s episode of The Catch was partially preempted by breaking news, but unfortunately, not long enough to cut off more than one brazen display of sexual depravity.
Showrunner Shonda Rhimes has promised to help America’s largest abortion provider “in any way.” According to Planned Parenthood, that means more “creative energy" and “storytelling” – a specialty of Rhimes’ when it comes to abortion. On Thursday, Elle magazine broke the news with the headline, “Shonda Rhimes Has Never Been Afraid to Tell Abortion Stories. Now She's Joining the Board of Planned Parenthood.” In celebration, writer Mattie Kahn gave a very friendly interview to both Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards and Shonda Rhimes, creator of TV series like Grey's Anatomy, How to Get Away With Murder and Scandal.
On Thursday's episode of ABC's Scandal, “Fates Worse Than Death,” we learn the background of Cyrus Beene’s (Jeff Perry) involvement in the assassination of President-elect Frankie Vargas (Ricardo Chavira). What starts as the show's typical dubious behavior dissolves into every questionable act in the book, but nothing quite as in-your-face as the ongoing gay agenda push.
After a long delay, ABC's Scandal returned for its sixth season premiere on Thursday night, fast-forwarding to election night after ending season five in the middle of a presidential campaign between "Republican" First Lady Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young) and Democrat Francisco "Frankie" Vargas (Ricardo Chavira).
Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes took a really lame swipe at Republicans tonight. I realize I could say that every week, but tonight's episode "That's My Girl" was especially pathetic. She had former RNC head and campaign manager Elizabeth North ramble to Attorney General David Rosen that because she's a Republican, she doesn't believe in college and that education is worthless.
If you ever want to know what liberal Hollywood really thinks, just watch a Shonda Rhimes show. In about every other episode she has characters going off on thinly veiled self-righteous liberal monologues. Tonight, ABC’s Scandal had two separate characters rant about "white men" and "country people."
