Jesse Watters is keeping the misogyny torch alive at Fox News with a blowjob joke at Ivanka Trump’s expense.

Just in case you thought the culture at Fox News was going to change in any significant way with the ouster of Bill O’Reilly, I present to you Jesse Watters “defending” Ivanka Trump against liberal criticism:

The Atlantic‘s David Frum summarized it best:

Let us not forget what an asshole Jesse Watters is. I have literally been sitting on this link for days. Today seems like the perfect moment to post it.

Speaking of Fox News, their legal troubles are just heating up. The company was hit with two more racial discrimination suits and Andrea Tantaros has doubled down on her lawsuit.

Fox News is asking its staff to complete their sensitivity-training program. LOL, WHY?

This is a very long piece about the Murdoch family and their desperate attempts to contain the ongoing meltdown over at Fox News. May I suggest you guys begin by firing Jesse Watters?

And here is your reminder that tonight’s Law & Order: SVU will be all about Roger Ailes:

Late Night Roundup

I learned last week that my husband and I happen to be friends with the lawyer representing Alex Jones in his custody case. I KNOW. Look, I have a lot of feelings about this and EVEN MORE QUESTIONS. But until I can get all those questions answered, I’m going to continue distracting myself with more Tuck Buckford.

In Other TV News

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, Powerless lived up to its name and had the plug pulled over at NBC. Here are my updated best guesses as to which other shows are not going to live to see the 2017-2018 season.

Ratings, While We’re on the Subject

The story here is that they’ve created something called “The NBA Awards” which will air on TNT this summer and Drake is going to host it. But I have many questions: Even if you like sportsball, who cares about some made-up awards ceremony? Isn’t who wins the Finals and MVP award enough? Aren’t there actual stats that determine who is the best in any particular position? Why do you want to watch your favorite NBA players wear bad suits and sit in an auditorium for three hours? WHY DO PEOPLE WATCH AWARDS SHOWS FOR ATHLETIC ACHIEVEMENT? AREN’T THEIR ATHLETIC ACHIEVEMENTS ACHIEVEMENT ENOUGH?

Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau are reportedly going to earn roughly $2.5 million per episode through season 8, which suggests that at the very least, Tyrion, Jon, Cersei, Daenerys and Jaime will survive season 7. It also means that they negotiated the highest per episode rate for TV actors which is impressive, until you remember that there are only 13 more episodes and shows like The Big Bang Theory whose actors earn $1 million per episode 1. have roughly 22, 23 episodes a season and 2. haven’t been cancelled yet.

Here is a very good interview with Damon Lindelof talking about how Lost impacts The Leftovers and a great deal about naked Justin Theroux.

It’s going to be a dark day at ESPN.

OH HELL NO. YOU STAY AWAY FROM ME WITH THAT BLACK MIRROR SHIT.
