Stephen Colbert will host the Kennedy Center Honors one last time. Let’s all try to imagine what next year will look like.

Stephen Colbert will be the host of the Kennedy Center Honors for one last time this year. Honorees include Martha Argerich, the Eagles, Al Pacino, Mavis Staples, and James Taylor.. I can only suppose next year it will be hosted by Gary Busey, and honorees will include Ted Nugent, Chachi, the entire cast of Duck Dynasty, and Omarosa.

For his Election Night special, Stephen Colbert didn’t want to write material for the possibility of a Donald Trump win: “No! There is nothing you can write. You don’t understand. I have 400 people in my theater. If we know Donald Trump is going to win, it’s going to be like doing stand-up comedy for one of those Chilean soccer stadiums where the villagers watch you execute one of the natives. There will be no laughter!” Also: “‘We hired a series of very fit naked men, with high, tight butts. We were going to bring them out if Hillary won,’ Colbert explained. ‘And painted on their asses was going to be [one letter on each behind] “I’m with her.” And then very early on the evening, we were like, “You can let those guys go.”‘”

Hey, remember that casting call for a new network that sounded an awful lot like a potential Trump TV? Yeah, actually Triumph the Insult Comic Dog placed that ad, and it was brilliant.

Donald Trump met with the man who inspired Ari on Entourage to chat about his administration. YEP. SOUNDS ABOUT RIGHT.

Gigi Hadid did a very good Melania impersonation on the AMAs last night:

Also at the AMAs: Green Day changed the lyrics to their new song “Bang, Bang” to sing, “No Trump, No KKK, No fascist USA.” @realDonaldTrump meltdown to begin in 3…2…

Need more Walking Dead in your life? Well, good news: AMC is adding more extended episodes, and a movie is all but “inevitable” according to showrunner Scott Gimple.

The Science Channel has canceled the Pumpkin Chunkin after a producer was horribly injured during the competition. Get well soon, Producer!

Dr. Phil exploited mentally ill Shelley Duvall for a November sweeps episode last week which I chose not to mention until now because I didn’t want to inadvertently promote it. It generated a great deal of outrage, and Stanley Kubrick’s daughter responded by raising money to help treat her. I’ve always had a soft spot for Duvall who grew up here in Houston and went to elementary school with one of my aunts. Let’s hope she receives the treatment she needs and is protected from television quacks in the future.

Brett Gelman is a Hey, It’s That Guy that you definitely know: he was the naked guy in the last couple of episodes of Mad Men; he was on that Matthew Perry series Go On; you know him. ANYWAY, he’s joining the cast of Stranger Things as a conspiracy theorist who is probably TOTALLY RIGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING.

Bruno Mars will be in your Carpool Karaoke.

This Netflix ad is the most anti-Netflix ad. I has a confused.
