The war of words between late-night host Jimmy Kimmel and Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy escalated Wednesday morning, as the latter defended himself against accusations of lying about his position on healthcare reform.
"I’m sorry he does not understand," Cassidy said on CNN's "New Day" about Kimmel's Tuesday night screed that the senator had lied to his face about his healthcare priorities.
Cassidy claimed that under the Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson proposal, more people will have coverage and individuals with pre-existing conditions will remain protected.
Sabrina Spellman is headed back to TV. After months of teasing and speculating, the CW and WBTV have finally announced they're officially developing a horror-centric show based off the Archie Comics character Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
But similar to the hyper stylized, neo-noir reboot of the original "Archie" comics "Riverdale," this Sabrina reboot will be based on her new (and much darker) comic series "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina," which will also serve as the new TV show's name.
According to the news release, "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" show reimagines Sabrina's origins as a dark, coming-of-age story steeped in the occult and witchcraft. Viewers will follow the struggles of the half-witch, half-mortal Sabrina as she attempts to pacify her dual nature. Plus she'll have to protect her human friends from the atrocities of dark magic and the like while balancing prom.
For former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the question of "what happened" began at midnight on election night. Or as she called it, "The dark time of the soul, midnight."
"I'm waiting for it to not be midnight soon," Stephen Colbert responded on Tuesday night's "Late Show."
It was Clinton's first late-night appearance since her November defeat by Donald Trump. She sat down with Colbert to explore what happened, how to prevent it from happening again and what exactly Colbert had in mind for his alt-universe election night special.
Jimmy Kimmel had some thoughts about the latest healthcare bill, and none of them were good.
ABC's late-night host opened Tuesday night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" by taking aim at the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal Obamacare, as well as his experiences talking previously with the bill's cosponsor, Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy.
The original Sarah Connor is back. Fans are going crazy at director James Cameron’s announcement that Linda Hamilton, the first actor to portray fan-favorite Connor in the “Terminator” franchise, will be returning to the world of killer robots — a reveal that he championed due to what he said was Hollywood’s lack of roles for female action heroes over the age of 50. Which leads us to ask, has James Cameron actually seen “Wonder Woman?”
New “Terminator” franchise director Tim Miller (formally from “Deadpool”) and Cameron hosted a filmmaker discussion on the Paramount Studios lot to give an update on all things Skynet.
According to the Hollywood Reporter — other media outlets were not allowed inside the THR-hosted conversation — Cameron was particularly excited about the inclusion of Hamilton because “there are 50-year-old, 60-year-old guys out there killing bad guys … but there isn’t an example of that for women.”
At the Hollywood Bowl on Monday, New Order closed out its set with a trio of Joy Division covers — “Decades,” “Atmosphere” and, of course, “Love Will Tear Us Apart.” They all but kicked off the set with yet another one — “Disorder” — that singer Bernard Sumner said the act had never played in Los Angeles before.
New Order was formed out of Joy Division after Ian Curtis’ suicide. The band has since enjoyed decades of influence as a pioneer of emotional, future-thinking electronic pop. But was it an accident, given the global anxieties of 2017, that the act looked back mournfully on its youth and played a batch of songs written from the edge of despair?
It’s easy to imagine the echoes of early New Order’s late 1970s and early '80s Britain in our current political mood: a disposed industrial working class, a newly elected conservative administration promising major changes and even talk of nuclear war. It’s a fool’s argument to say that music gets better in bad times, but I bet it’s no coincidence that when New Order assembled its set, the bleak, gray feelings of the old Joy Division era were more resonant than they’d been in a long time.
