Watch Stephen Colbert out-Alex-Jones Alex Jones

Since Stephen Colbert is not allowed to do “Stephen Colbert” who is just basically Bill O’Reilly, he’s now created “Tuck Buckford” who is just basically Alex Jones.

The Daily Show takes on the Easter celebration at the White House:

Just the other day, my family was watching the “Subway Hero” episode of 30 Rock (also known as the best episode of 30 Rock), and speculating as to whether Tracy Morgan even knew he was a character on a show. This pretty much answers that question:

Not to brag (well, maybe to brag a little), but I got my hands on the first few episodes of American Gods, and I agree with everything in this review. It’s weird, it’s beautiful, it’s exciting, it is very true to the book, and I intend to recap it here on Foolish, so stay tuned.

Few things make me happier than the fact that Billy on the Street inspired The Leftovers. “If Billy Eichner can afford a Mila Kunis balloon, and it’s not a visual effect, we gotta get Busey.” (Also, what the hell, Anthony Bourdain? Who wouldn’t want a giant Thanksgiving balloon made of themselves?)

Netflix recently announced that they are closing in on 100 million subscribers, which OK, great. Less reported is the fact that those nearly 100 million subscribers have watched half a billion hours of Adam Sandler movies since December. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? 500 MILLION HOURS? STOP IT.

In more reassuring news, Dave Chappelle’s comedy specials are Netflix’s most-watched, so I guess you people aren’t completely worthless.

BREAKING NEWS: Girls wasn’t very diverse.

“Sonic screwdriver” is being added to the Oxford English Dictionary:

Here is just a very good list of people who should be the new Doctor (who aren’t Kris Marshall).

The Writers’ Strike is inching ever closer. Here is the Writers’ Guild’s list of demands.

Genius Jeopardy answer is genius:

Oh my goodness, get well soon, Richard Simmons! We’re rooting for you!

In this interview, Terry Crews talks about Idiocracy being ahead of its time and it’s great, he’s great. However, I was going to embed a Funny or Die clip that the piece includes in which President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho travels back in time to address a 2016 presidential convention. Except! In the clip, Camacho advocates that the politicians spend less time talking about taxes and instead work to get more violence — real violence — on TV. They then cut to a clip of a man being viciously shot to death by two different groups of men. In the wake of the horrific news from Cleveland, the “joke” here is way too real. STOP PREDICTING THE FUTURE, PRESIDENT CAMACHO, IT’S NOT FUNNY ANYMORE. (You can watch the clip for yourself at the link, but eeesh.
