Everyone seems excited about the Hyperloop, Paypal and Tesla founder Elon Musk’s idea for a train connecting Los Angeles and San Francisco that would travel at speeds eclipsing 800mph through a tube. Could it revolutionize train travel — and travel in general, for that matter — in the U.S.? Lots of people think so!
God, when the Daily Show is good, it is so, so good. Case in point: a federal judge recently ruled that NYC’s “stop and frisk” program — which basically gave NYPD officers the green light to, well, stop and frisk anyone they cared to — was unconstitutional and violated the rights of thousands of black and latino New Yorkers.
If you’ve attempted to visit the New York Times website in the past hour or so, you’ve likely been greeted by a screen that looks something like this… The reason for this? A hacker attack, according to Fox Business. The corporate and media sites of The New York Times (NYT) were experiencing a cyber attack on Wednesday afternoon, according to a source close to the matter.
Last night’s Daily Show featured another “Can’t you at least wait until Jon Stewart gets back” segment that saw fill-in host John Oliver lose a little slice of his sanity over ridiculously early media hype about the 2016 presidential election. Show More Summary
A judge threw out the racial discrimination claims against Paula Deen laid out by former employee Lisa Jackson. The judge said Jackson’s claims of racism were a little far-fetched. Deen isn’t out of the woods yet as the claims of sexual harassment and violence still stand. However, the good news is Deen isn’t a racist anymore!
In case you haven’t heard, notorious Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger — the man who inspired Jack Nicholson’s character in The Departed — was convicted today of a number of crimes, meaning he’ll be spending his life in prison. So...Show More Summary
There was a nude scene featuring Lake Bell in How to Make It In America that rates as one of my favorite nude scenes of all time, mainly because it featured Lake Bell nude. I recall her breasts being particularly glorious, and I’m not...Show More Summary
Stephen Colbert’s “Daft Punk’d” spectacular took the internet by storm yesterday thanks to a glorious montage of celebrities dancing to “Get Lucky” and his ballsy takedown of The Colbert Report’s MTV/Viacom overlords after they unceremoniously pulled the plug on his original Song of Summer event. It was truly the evening embodiment of why Colbert is the greatest.
In an effort to give broadcast television and their new relaxed standards the basic cable business, Stephen Colbert invited “Award-winning British person and recovering network star” Sir Hugh Laurie on set to read from a list of Viacom-approved terms he can say on his show and broadcast television cannot. Take that Mark Harmon. You never get to talk about fingers in butts.
Well this was unexpected: Amazon.com founder and CEO Jeff Bezos — who’s worth something like 25 billion bucks — is buying the Washington Post for $250-million. (That’s a quarter of what Tumblr sold to Yahoo! for, btw.) Reports the very meta Washington Post: The Washington Post Co. has agreed to sell its flagship newspaper to Amazon.com founder and chief executive Jeffrey P.
At home I have a coffee mug. That mug has the image above emblazoned on it. If you’re fiercely anti-Luke, I suggest you get one for yourself and then fill it with some form of brown liquor before you read any further, because this is...Show More Summary
Admittedly, the premise is better than the end product, but it’s still Simon Pegg donning a giant wig of red hair and Gryffindor cloak, chugging a pint and drunkenly wishing Harry a happy 33rd birthday before devolving into the hot mess we’d all expect from a highly inebriated Ron Weasley in his thirties. The GIF set on the next page is really all you need.
I do not have “Britney Spears,” “Katy Perry,” or “Smurfs 2” Google alerts. Swear. I just happened to scroll past a few photos of the two pop stars looking really uncomfortable at the premiere of a sequel to a movie about CGI’d blue creatures from our childhood interacting with real live people and my randomness radar hit max alert.
Yeah, Louis C.K. was on the Daily Show last night, but let’s not forget that the show currently has a British host and the Royal Baby was born yesterday and someone on CNN said something incredibly dumb about it. So, naturally, JohnShow More Summary
Creepy-grinning former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer was on the Colbert Report last night to promote his new book and talk about his run for comptroller, and I have to wonder if he regrets his decision to go on the show. It was a cringe-worthy...Show More Summary
Much has been made about the new Rolling Stone cover featuring Dzhokhar Tsarnaev looking like a badass rock star. Some people think it’s just a cheap ploy to sell copies and others think there’s some real journalistic merit to putting him on the cover. Well, Fox News is definitely in the former category.

In case you haven’t heard, folksy Fox & Friends garden gnome Gretchen Carlson is leaving walking human dildos Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade behind for greener pastures, namely Megyn Kelly’s afternoon time slot, because Megyn Kelly is headed to primetime to replace Greta Van Whatshername.

Shocking news that will shock you: The Late Late Show welcomed the most likable man in all of entertainment on the show last night to have a half-improv’d chat with our man Craig Ferguson and all the video evidence CBS has made available to the internet thus far is a ninety second context-less clip and nothing on YouTube.
As part of my ongoing duties as Charlie Day’s internet publicist I was planning to cover his visit to Conan last night even if he didn’t unveil an all-new Season 9 clip from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia that features Roddy Piper’s...Show More Summary
Charlie Day dropped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night to promote Pacific Rim and the filming of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’s 100th episode plus the show’s move over to the new FXX network. In the midst of all this heShow More Summary
