‘Law & Order: SVU’ is doing a Trump episode and the only question is what took them so long.

Of course Law & Order: SVU is doing a Donald Trump episode. Of course they are! How could they possibly resist? And it’s going to air on October 26th, one week after the final debate, two weeks before the election.


I had read bits and pieces about the Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump, including the fact that the only jokes that were off-limit were about him not having as much money as he claims to have, but this history of the roast is really worth reading:

“Now I know what you’re thinking,” Trump had told the crowd, “Mr. Trump, Sir, why would you ever do this roast? Honestly, it was worth it, because it’s all going to charity.”

But when he said the word, “charity,” he pointed at himself.

“I noticed it the minute he did it,” James said.

“You can really tell there is something going on with this guy, something behind the mask,” said Kevin Schini, who was on the writing staff.

Trump has claimed Comedy Central paid him $1 million for the roast. The network declined to comment on the terms, saying they were confidential. Others associated with the event said the number was closer to $400,000. The year of the roast, Comedy Central gave that amount to the Donald J. Trump Foundation,which spent money on things like a $10,000 portrait of Trump. The foundation lacks the certification to solicit money from the public.

And while we’re on the subject, BECAUSE WHEN ARE WE NEVER ON THE SUBJECT THESE DAYS, some former Miss Teen USA contestants are accusing Trump of walking in on them while they were changing, which is super disturbing and creepy, especially taken with the comments he made on Howard Stern’s show about doing just that:

“I’ll tell you the funniest is that I’ll go backstage before a show and everyone’s getting dressed,” Trump told Howard Stern in recordings released Saturday by CNN. “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it. … ‘Is everyone OK?’ You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

Gloria Allred tried to demand that MGM release The Apprentice footage, but MGM was like, “NOPE.”

Billy Bush is still not officially out at The Today Show, it’s just a matter of time, and he may sue over it.

Showtime’s political docuseries The Circus was supposed to take a break for a few weeks, but have decided to return early because UH DUH.

Finally, the last word on television and politics (for today), here are a bunch of RuPaul’s Drag Race queens lip-syncing Donald Trump for their lives:

AMC has put together the biggest FearFest in its 20 year history, including an 88 hour-long marathon of The Walking Dead ahead of its premiere on the 23rd.

Hey, guys, looks like The Simpsons predicted the future again. Can someone check with them on who is going to win this election? Oh. Wait. Nevermind.

Looks like you’re going to have to put together your own tasteless Kim Kardashian robbery victim costume this Halloween.

This is the most adorable version of Doctor Who yet, although the fact that these are from the “Mr. Man” line of books does emphasize how nice it would be to have a “Little Miss” Doctor Who. Wait, these lines of books are known as “Mr. Man,” and “Little Miss”? Well, that’s telling in itself, isn’t it.

Gabrielle Union is fighting BET over her contract for Being Mary Jane.

Who here watched The Grinder?

Bad Girls Club is going nowhere anytime soon.

Murder in the First has been cancelled over at TNT. I didn’t know it was still on, but OK.

NBC greenlit Common Sense, an alternative comedy where real people comment on current events, and, I don’t know you guys, but I’m not sure I need to hear any more from “real people” on current events after this election. I feel like I’ve heard perfectly enough from “real people,” thanks.
