Fox News's revamped nightly lineup will do little to stabilize its wobbling, increasingly directionless schedule, says Ken Tucker.
Tim Allen's comedy 'Last Man Standing,' now canceled, could be said to be a victim of its conservative-in-every-sense image.
While savaging Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey and Trump’s health care bill, Colbert and his guests — Jon Stewart, John Oliver, Samantha Bee, Rob Corddry, and Ed Helms — sat around swapping war stories.
One of the more inexplicable stars of the Fox News channel is Eric Bolling, once one-fifth of “The Five” and now one-fifth of “The Fox News Specialists,” the show that has replaced “The Five” at 5 p.m. Confused? Not as much as Bolling is, routinely. A beefy former commodities trader who always looks as though he’s shaking off a brain-rattling tackle on the football field, Bolling somehow gained the confidence of Fox News executives a few years ago.
Bill O'Reilly announces that he's taking a vacation. With no return date mentioned, many are speculating whether the embattled host will ever return.
If ever there was a time for “Saturday Night Live” to have a go at Bill O’Reilly, this was the week to start snarking. With 60-plus advertisers yanking their ads from “The O’Reilly Factor” after the New York Times piece on charges of sexual harassment by O’Reilly — and with O’Reilly topping the bestseller lists with a brand-new book, “Old School” — the topic could not be more timely. The show presented two awful sketches that featured Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump.
The first thing you notice about Louis C.K. as he takes the stage for his new Netflix stand-up comedy special, '2017,' is that he’s wearing a suit and tie.
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly went on Fox & Friends to talk about his new book, “Old School: Life in the Sane Lane,” but it was his remarks about Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., that are getting him the most attention, and not the good kind. After the hosts played footage of Waters giving an impassioned speech on the House floor, O’Reilly said, “I didn’t hear a word she said. Many people, including celebrities like Sophia Bush, took to Twitter to share their outrage over what a lot of people felt were racist and misogynistic comments by O’Reilly.
Juliet Huddy is probably a name that Bill O’Reilly wishes he had never heard right about now. The newspaper also spoke with current and former Fox News employees, who confirmed that Huddy was “paid in the high six figures” to stay silent and not file a lawsuit when she left the company in September. Huddy began working at Fox News in 1998 as a reporter and was later a weekend host at Fox & Friends as well as a regular guest on O’Reilly’s popular show.
Bill O’Reilly did his final O’Reilly Factor for 2016 on Tuesday night, and it was a doozy. It led off with a patented “Talking Points Memo” about those who want to abolish the Electoral College. Fox News viewers long ago got used to Bill using the phrase “Talking Points” as a substitute for the first-person singular.
It may seem odd to call the atmosphere of a TV movie about the attempted assassination of a President “civilized.” But one of the timely contrasts made by "Killing Reagan," premiering Sunday on the National Geographic Channel, is that the political context surrounding the shooting of Ronald Reagan in 1981 seems downright dignified compare with our present, wild, nearly out-of-control election. Framing the shooting of the president by John Hinckley Jr. are scenes of a Reagan, played by Tim Matheson, appearing in debates, tussling with his advisers over how to deal with Russia, and other duties of the office. Directed by Rod Lurie ("The Contender") and based on the Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard book of the same name, "Killing Reagan" features fine performances by Matheson and Cynthia Nixon as Nancy Reagan.
