Craig Ferguson says History’s “Join or Die” features “unhinged, dangerous, rollicking” conversation

It’s always nice to see when a network gets back to its original mission — and its name — and History has been doing a fine job of that of late. For history buffs, miniseries like Texas Rising have helped complement other series like Pawn Stars, and the new series Join or Die With Craig Ferguson should also be a welcome addition for those who like to discuss, and debate, history. The series is the brainchild of former late-night host Craig Ferguson, and will feature a roundtable of people talking about six historical events or figures, whittling them down to […]

Donning a black leather jacket, black tee and black pants, Glaser sat comfortably on stage at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena and talked to TV critics about sex, which is the focus of Not Safe With Nikki Glaser. A self-described […]

“What the hell have you guys been doing for 30 years?” Marty McFly and Doc Brown visit 2015 and Jimmy Kimmel

In a nice coda to yesterday’s Back to the Future Day, Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd showed up in character as Marty McFly and Doc Brown on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The duo burst onto stage during Kimmel’s monologue in their famed DeLorean time machine, arriving from the year 1985, and exited the car to a standing ovation from the crowd, Marty in his trademark vest and Doc in his hazmat suit. When Kimmel greeted them, Marty asked, “Who are you?” When informed they were in a middle of a talk show, Doc asked in astonishment, “What happened to Johnny Carson?” […]

The Daily Show With Trevor Noah: Late night favorite gets a new voice

  When Comedy Central announced that Jon Stewart’s successor on The Daily Show would be Trevor Noah, much of America responded with, “Who?” Noah, a 31-year-old standup comedian from South Africa and Daily Show contributor since 2014, has an incisive wit and an uncanny ability to expose deep-seated hypocrisy. At a standup performance in late July, Noah riffed on being a black guy being pulled over by police (“I don’t know how not to die.”), being an African on a U.S.-bound airliner during the Ebola outbreak, and the “charming racism” he encountered in the South. It will be a vastly […]
