Jimmy Kimmel reminds Sam Bee about interviewing "thirsty" Kellyanne Conway on The Daily Show

It was a mini-summit of people who professionally do not like Donald Trump on Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, as Kimmel welcomed Full Frontal host Samantha Bee. While Kimmel took the traditional nightly late-night host shots at Bee’s but once-a-week round of Trump-bashing, they both commiserated over how the current…

The Daily Show and The Opposition will air live after Trump's first State Of The Union

There are any number of reasons that a person might have for looking forward to Donald Trump’s first State Of The Union address on January 30—including the likelihood that it’ll be a disaster or that it’ll give them a good excuse to completely disengage from TV and the internet for a night—but Comedy Central is now…

Let's cringe our way through this 2012 video of Matt Lauer joking about sexual harassment on Today

Ah, 2012: A lighter, simpler time. Barack Obama was in the White House, Twitter was a platform for stupid internet jokes and annoying memes (instead of hate speech and presidential proclamations), and the sexual culture was such that a genial morning news show like NBC’s Today could run a long segment openly mocking…

John Hodgman on the craggy coasts of Maine and our inevitable march toward death

John Hodgman has lived a few places in his life. First, in Massachusetts, where he spent much of his young life. Then, New York—namely Brooklyn, where he grew into adulthood. Now, by virtue of a persuasive wife and the subtle appeal that an unyieldingly rocky coastline provides, he’s somewhere in Maine. All of those…

The Opposition With Jordan Klepper debuts with a brisk, ambitious tour of “alt-news” stereotypes

B

While his three-year tenure as a Daily Show correspondent seems like solid preparation for his own satirical late-night series, Jordan Klepper has a couple of major obstacles to overcome as he launches The Opposition With Jordan Klepper. Taking over the plum, post-Daily Show spot held down so ably by Larry Wilmore…

Roy Wood Jr. and Trevor Noah brainstorm about those Confederate monuments on The Daily Show

If there’s one thing that Donald Trump has truly accomplished (and the coming grand jury is still way out on that one), it’s that his incessant coddling of white supremacists has taken the hazy, eyes-averted embarrassment that many people carry about the existence of Confederate monuments in America and focused it…

Trevor Noah and the Equal Justice Initiative explain how current talk of "Southern heritage" ignores all the dead black people

With all the controversy about Confederate monuments and the chorus of shrilly racist dog whistles about “Southern heritage” emerging from the Trump administration and its supporters, the fact that a different sort of American history continues to be erased from the national discourse is too often drowned out. That’s…

The Daily Show asks transgender vets about the Draft-Dodger-In-Chief’s tweets

Like a lot of people—and all people with human souls—Daily Show host Trevor Noah spent the day trying to come up with the right way to say, “Even for Donald Trump, this is some bullshit,” concerning Ol’ Bone Spurs’ excreted tweets this morning announcing that the brave transgender servicepeople would no longer be…

The Daily Show demonstrates that The Mooch is a quick learner

Almost immediately after joining Donald Trump’s administration, new communications director Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci began deleting old tweets that didn’t reflect his new boss’ destructive, hateful agenda. Adopting Trump’s worldview wasn’t the only thing Scaramucci quickly picked up, though, as a fun clip put…

Trump’s Twitter becomes hilarious, horrifying art at The Daily Show’s Presidential Library

While opening the faux “Presidential Library” dedicated to all the terrible shit Donald Trump has said on Twitter, Trevor Noah obliquely referenced that time he was excoriated for saying terrible shit on Twitter. “I like the Donald J. Trump tweets because he is the first millennial president, and as a millennial I…

The Daily Show’s Trump Twitter library will be around the corner from Trump Tower

Last night, Trevor Noah revealed that this weekend will mark the debut of The Daily Show’s previously announced Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library. The museum dedicated to the absurd and often nonsensical statements Trump has tapped out will be housed in a locale perfect for trolling the man behind “covfefe.”

Stephen Colbert to bring some of his Daily Show friends to The Late Show

Stephen Colbert’s Late Show has spent the last 13 weeks beating Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show in terms of total viewers, and to guarantee at least another week of free pizza for his crew (assuming he doesn’t get fired), he’s lined up some special guests for his May 9 show. According to The Hollywood Reporter, that…
