Why Dave Chappelle Got Netflix to Remove Chappelle’s Show

Why Dave Chappelle Got Netflix to Remove Chappelle’s Show

Earlier this month, during an incendiary monologue on Saturday Night Live, Dave Chappelle about his great-grandfather, who was a slave until he was 10 years old. “I wish I could see him now and I wish he could see me. I wonder what he would say. This week I flew to New York on a private jet to host Saturday Night Live. Netflix started streaming a show that bears his name, Chappelle’s Show, and HBO Max is streaming it. And I didn’t get paid for any of it,” Chappelle said. “If he could see me now, he’d probably be like, ‘This n---a got bought and sold more than I have.’”The joke drew some...

John Oliver Literally Blows Up 2020 in Final Show of the Year: “Get F--ked”

Back in 2016, shortly after Donald Trump won the presidential election, John Oliver invited random New Yorkers and a handful of celebrities (including Larry David, Billy Eichner, and Kathy Griffin) to bid farewell to what had been a calamitous year with some basic profanity. “Fuck you, 2016,” Oliver during the season finale for Last Week Tonight before detonating a giant “2016” sign. How much worse could things get anyway?Four years later, Oliver received an answer. “This year has been an absolute parade of misery,” the host said toward the end of Sunday’s Last Week Tonight season finale....

While the official election results remain inconclusive, Jimmy Kimmel sounded relieved on Wednesday about the possibility that President Donald Trump may have lost.“I have to say, I am very happy and relieved that it looks like we’re finally sending this monster back to Mar-A-Lago,” Kimmel said. “But I’m also shocked that it was this close.”Turnout for Tuesday’s election was the highest in the United States in more than 100 years, leading to record vote totals for both Democratic nominee Joe Biden and Trump.

John Oliver Implores Viewers to Vote Trump Out in Final Show Before Election

John Oliver Implores Viewers to Vote Trump Out in Final Show Before Election

In December of 2019, John Oliver became an American citizen. “Everyone in that room is making a commitment that long outlasts the current president,” he in an interview earlier this year, before the coronavirus pandemic upended life around the world. “You’re vehemently endorsing the idea of America, because the idea is still perfect. That’s what was so moving about the ceremony.”Oliver’s duty to America came full circle this weekend, when he voted for the first time.“Look, I don’t need to tell you just how important Tuesday is. If you haven’t voted already, please do so. I did. I voted in...

Borat Defends Rudy Giuliani From “Fake News Media” as Sequel Debuts

Borat Defends Rudy Giuliani From “Fake News Media” as Sequel Debuts

Sacha Baron Cohen does not want to let Rudy Giuliani have the last word on the former New York City mayor’s embarrassing scene in the new sequel to Borat. On Thursday night, in character as the offensive journalist from Khazakstan, Cohen mock-defended “America’s mayor” against a rash of about Giuliani’s appearance in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.“What was an innocent sexytime encounter between a consenting man and my 15-year-old daughter have been turned into something disgusting by fake news media,” Cohen-as-Borat joked, before making an exaggerated and anti-Semitic hand gesture to give...

Totally Under Control Unearths the Root of Trump’s Coronavirus Failures

Totally Under Control Unearths the Root of Trump’s Coronavirus Failures

During his first inaugural address, on January 20, 1981, President Ronald Reagan launched 40 years of Republican strategy. “Government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem,” Reagan in his remarks. That conservative ideology has gotten even more, let’s say, aggressive in the decades since. For instance: Republican strategist Grover Norquist infamously that he’d like to shrink government down to a size so small, he’d be able to drown it in a bathtub. But the dogma perhaps reached its final form on April 3 of this year, in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic—the...

At Least 73 Million People Watched “Shit Show” Trump-Biden Debate

(Preliminary numbers released by the research company suggested at least 64.7 million people had watched.)That number combined the viewership totals across 16 networks and streaming platforms. Despite the huge viewership total, however, the 2020 debate still lagged well behind ratings for...

One day after President Donald Trump refused to endorse a peaceful transition of power were he to lose the presidential election in November—an incendiary comment Trump repeated on Thursday—Seth Meyers was left feeling fearful about the future of American democracy.“We’re as close as we’ve ever been to losing our democracy and watching our government transform into an autocratic regime,” Meyers said on Thursday’s episode of Late Night. “It’s happening right in front of our eyes, right now.

40 Years Ago, a Pundit Mused That Joe Biden Could Save Us From Reaganism

40 Years Ago, a Pundit Mused That Joe Biden Could Save Us From Reaganism

Sunday night’s episode of The Reagans, Showtime’s , ends with the idle chatter of journalists surveying the landscape after Ronald Reagan’s resounding 1980 defeat of President Jimmy Carter.“Who leads the social counterrevolution? Teddy Kennedy?” CBS anchor Walter Cronkite asks in the clip.“How about Senator [Joe] Biden from Delaware for openers?” commentator Jeff Greenfield suggests in response. “Very impressive young guy, in his second term, revisionist Democrat.”“Okay, all right,” Cronkite says in response, laughing. “All right.”The clip is one of the most impressive archival finds that...
