The White House Correspondents’ Dinner, a.k.a. “Nerd Prom,” was held this weekend with the President in attendance for the first time in six years and President Biden joked, “which is understandable: we had a horrible plague and then two years of COVID.” Biden made plenty of jokes about Former President No Sense of Humor, the coup attempt and Fox News, and, most importantly and refreshingly after the previous administration, HIMSELF. He joked about himself!
James Corden and Billy Eichner recorded sketches:

‘I’m a British talk show host who lives in Los Angeles. So, who better than I to come down here to the White House and see if I can get a job’ — Watch ‘The Late Late Show’ host James Corden’s full sketch at the start of the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner pic.twitter.com/ahpLsYvPqI

I’m just mad I didn’t win the “Telling Us What is Happening on the Bachelor” award.
Trevor Noah hosted the evening, and made some sharp jokes about CBS, Fox News, President Biden and, got in this zinger: “I’ve actually been a little worried about tonight. What if I make a really mean joke about Kellyanne Conway, and then her husband rushes up on the stage and thanks me?”
Noah ended his remarks with a somber reminder to the journalists in attendance that they have a job to do protecting democracy from the threat of autocracy. I can only hope everyone there really heard him and took these words to heart:

Uh oh: the book that HBO Max’s Tokyo Vice is based on is just packed with lies. Allegedly.
Sam Raimi, director of the upcoming Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, notes that WandaVision did influence the upcoming movie, but admits that he didn’t watch the entire series, just a few important moments. SAM! GO BACK AND WATCH THE WHOLE THING! IT’S GENUINELY WORTH YOUR TIME! Signed, someone who doesn’t bother with the Marvel movies.
Christina Ricci is out here commenting on all those Yellowjackets fan theories. Spoilers afoot for those who have not watched the series.
This is a very long essay arguing that Supernatural was better when it was a monster-of-the-week show instead of the fantasy epic it became, and I’m not disagreeing.
Angela Kang is no longer the showrunner of The Walking Dead Daryl spinoff in yet even more drama surrounding this series.
MTV’s Cribs was just chock-full of lies. Except Redman. He told the damn truth.
Here’s a real headline: Megan Fox and MGK Blood Drinking Ritual Draws Warning From Vampires.
Greta Van Susteren is in talks to join Newsmax, so yeah, that checks out.
In news that surprises exactly no one who has been paying attention, The New York Times has determined that Tucker Carlson has created maybe “the most racist show in the history of cable news.”
Laura Ingraham is maybe the most tone-deaf person of the week:
wait so someone else paid for your college is what you are saying

You graduated Dartmouth in 1985. Your mother died in 1999. From 1985 to 1999 you worked as a presidential speechwriter, an editor, and, after law school in 1991, clerked for US circuit judge and was an associate for one of the largest law firms in the country. 1/2

I swear to God that after her mother died, @IngrahamAngle boasted to me that her last words were "Laura, why are you so bossy?"

Laura Ingraham graduated from Darmouth in 1985.
In 1985 the cost of tuition there was roughly $14,000 per year. Adjusted for inflation that's around $39,000.
Today, the cost of tuition at Dartmouth is $60,000 per year. https://t.co/5dWu5Dekgf

These developments are interesting because for many years The CW was a pretty safe network to be on, with a very low cancellation rate even for shows that had low ratings. Here’s what to note: The CW is owned jointly by Paramount and Warner Bros. — which, of course, is now Warner Bros. Discovery, having been bought by Discovery. And it’s becoming clear that the Discovery folks are taking a more brutal approach to projects now that they are in charge. Between this and the announcement that they were killing all of the scripted projects on TBS and TNT, I’m concerned that Warner Bros. Discovery has made tightening the belt a priority. It’s worth keeping an eye on as The CW is pretty consistently a money loser. And I wonder if The CW as a whole might be in danger in the near future. Bottom line: I’d be worried if I were on The CW right about now.
