Jon Stewart’s Take On Brian Williams’ “Misremembering” Is Perfect

When TV news networks cover Brian Williams' "misremembering" of an Iraq War incident and the subsequent scrutiny over his reporting credibility, it's hard not to roll my eyes.

Jon Hamm Is Obsessed With Cats And That’s The Best News I’ve Heard All Day

Nothing fills me with happiness quite like seeing Jon Hamm act like the total opposite of his extremely unlikable TV counterpart, Don Draper. Luckily for me, that happens pretty much every time Jon opens his mouth. Today in Jon Acting Affable, he displays his deep love for cats on the Comedy Central show "@midnight." Nothing…

Don’t #CancelColbert: Stephen Colbert Blasted Over Satirical Tweet About Racism That He Didn’t Even Send

I Could Watch James Franco Getting Punched In The Face All Day

In my old age, I've gone a bit soft on Mr. James Franco, the writer/actor/director/churlish bon vivant responsible for things like this and this. Maybe it was his spot on impression of himself in "This Is The End" that made me warm to him, but his stupid face doesn't make me nearly as angry a…
