‘South Park’ Season Of Serialization Ends With Donald Trump Surrogate Still In White House

south-park-donald-trump_edited-1

South Park‘s season of serialization came to an end; sadly Mr. Garrison/Donald Trump stand-in’s presidency did not appear to join it. On the bright side, the good folk of South Park did learn how easy it is to prompt Garrison/Trump to action by mocking him, though they could have learned that much quicker had they spoken to Lorne Michaels or Alec Baldwin. In the season finale – oh, yeah, spoiler alerts – Cartman decided not to escape to Mars after discovering men do not… Read

Much voguing, much scenery chewing, and what James Corden insists is Carpool Karaoke’s first in-car twerk when Madonna’s iteration of the hit video franchise dropped tonight on Corden’s Late Late Show. Material Girl seemed deadly earnest through, announcing she doesn’t really like riding around in a car unless there's music, wondering why Corden did not remove any of his items of clothing, discussed her home life at some length and then pronounced it a “boring… Read

“We have lot fun here at Late Show every night talking about the news of the day, but I hope you don't get your news from me because – newsflash – this isn't news, this is entertainment,” Stephen Colbert said on his CBS late-night show. “If you want news go to CBS's John Dickerson, or maybe the Wall Street Journal. But don't go to some anonymous guy on social media, because a lot of the news on social media is a lie. The craziest fake news these days is called Pizzagate.… Read

Conan logo

Updated with video: Conan O'Brien is a rare late-night host who seems to eschew politics yet inserts himself into some significant political stories. The TBS star made headlines in February 2015 when he and a small crew became the first American late-night show to film in Cuba since the U.S. embargo on that country began in 1962. Conan has since followed that road trip with a visit to South (and, very briefly, North) Korea, to Qatar with First Lady Michelle Obama, and… Read
