Two stars of Silicon Valley were harassed by Trump supporters and called “cucks” which is an
alt-right fascist-right term that is short for “cuckservative,” derived from “cuckold,” suggesting a weak, emasculated man. This was by no means the worst thing that Trump supporters did since the election — not by far — but as Nanjinai points out, “This happened at a bar in LA surrounded by ppl. I can’t imagine what it must be like to be someone who looks like me in other parts.” SO THAT’S FUN.
Also fun: Sean Hannity is calling for the Trump administration to pull White House credentials for CNN and the New York Times because they “picked a side” in the election. This is not OK, you guys. This is flat-out dangerous.
Did last night’s 60 Minutes interview with Trump normalize him and his hate-filled campaign? (Yes. It did.) And Time’s TV critic attacked SNL for its take on the election, only to have Alec Baldwin tweet back that NBC squelches any notions SNL might have had about telling people who to vote for. It’s interesting.
Michael Moore went on Morning Joe on Friday to discuss how he predicted Trump was going to win, turning what was supposed to be a 7-minute segment into an uninterrupted 45-minute one.
The Simpsons also predicted President Trump. They aren’t happy about being prescient:
Mr. Robot has something to say about President Trump:
Corey Lewandowski is out at CNN, surprise, surprise.
Oh my God, Breitbart News is trying to recruit Billy Bush. WHAT IS THIS NIGHTMARE UPSIDE DOWN PLACE WE ARE LIVING IN NOW.
If you didn’t watch Last Week Tonight last night, you should.
But if you only have a few minutes, watch this, his goodbye and fuck you to 2016:
Saturday Night Live reminded us all just how much we missed Dave Chappelle. You can stream all of Chappelle’s Show over on comedycentral.com right now even without a cable login. And here is a list of the best political sketches the show aired. I, for one, was disappointed he didn’t explore Black Trump on SNL this weekend.
One North Carolina affiliate bleeped Chappelle’s opening monologue. They have since apologized. If you want to watch the monologue and the rest of the sketches in their unedited glory, North Carolina, we’ve got you covered.
And here’s Dave Chappelle leading a crowd in a rendition of “Creep” at the SNL afterparty, just because.
Game of Thrones spoilers right here. And here’s a look at some of the interior design changes Cersei has made to her throne room, and — spoiler — another throne room that we’ve never seen before.
Just can’t wait until next Sunday for the premiere of The Affair? Here you go:
Oh, and here’s Search Party:
The Passage, a vampire trilogy written by Houstonian and Rice professor Justin Cronin, has been picked up by FOX to be turned into a series.
In other development news:
- Donnie Walhberg and Nick Lachey are teaming up with an Entourage producer for Encore, a CBS comedy about, fittingly enough, a boy band who reunites after 20 years.
- Leonardo DiCaprio is producing Frontiersmen, a documentary for the History Channel.
- After five seasons, Steve Harvey is ending The Steve Harvey Show — but don’t worry! He’s starting a new Steve Harvey talk show for NBC.
- The CW bought Criminal Magic, a magical crime drama from Rob Thomas and some others who work on iZombie with him.
- CBS bought another legal drama, something about a disgraced senator who returns to the law practice.
- The BBC has given Mary Berry another new series, Mary Berry Everyday where she will do things like bee keeping and “pursue the history of the great British pie.”
- That First Wives Club series is not going ahead at TV Land after all.
- And the Nicki Minaj comedy over at Freeform is being reimagined, apparently.
Tig Notaro’s One Mississippi has been renewed for a second season on Amazon.
- 90 Day Fiance not only has been renewed by TLC, but it has been given a second (!) spinoff. Who knew it had one spinoff?
- The Science Channel ordered another season of What on Earth?
- CBS has ordered more Man with a Plan, Code Black and Great Indoors, so you can continue not watching any of them.
But say goodbye to Not Safe with Nikki Glaser, because that show was terrible.
