Hallelujah! Trevor Noah criticized Republicans who claim to be pro-life yet are impartial to gun laws on last night’s The Daily Show. I don’t know about you, but I’m still mourning the loss of Jon Stewart. However, Trevor sure is filling in those shoes pretty well. During the show, Trevor pointed out how radical the party’s pro-lifers are when it comes to talk about abortion. Trevor used a clip where Carly Fiorina trashed Planned Parenthood by using ridiculous “facts” to prove her point. The segment also showed clips from Jeb Bush defending his pro-life stance with a contrast clip of him being unconcerned with the Oregon shooting because you know, “stuff happens”. In the bit, Noah said “They just need to have a superhero’s total dedication to life. Right now they’re more like comic book collectors. Human life only holds value until you take it out of the package, and then it’s worth nothing.” Touche, Trevor. I look forward to more mockery of the wacky circus that is politics.
Remember earlier when we told you you’d probably cry over The Good Dinosaur trailer? Sorry, but we’re about to make you cry once again with Bindi Irwin‘s super gorgeous performance from Dancing With The Stars last night. This week DWTS theme was “Most Memorable Year,” and Bindi decided to dedicate a contemporary dance performance to her father, Steve Irwin, in this case played by Derek Hough. I’m just thinking about the dance and I’m starting to tear up. I suggest grabbing a tissue before you watch it. More »
“The Bold and the Lyrical”
On Monday’s episode of The Late Late Show, James Corden had Julianne Moore and Fuller House‘s John Stamos act out a scene from a soap opera using nothing but Taylor Swift lyrics. The “Bold and the Lyrical” tells the story of Juliette Moore and James Cordone including lines from the Taylor’s hits like “Shake it Off,” “Blank Space” and “I Knew You Were Trouble. At one point, Julianne quotes “Someone Like You,” with the host calling her out on the mistake, saying: “I think that’s Adele. Good song though!” More »
First off, we can all agree that Last Week Tonight With John Oliver is one of the greatest shows on television right now, yes? Good. So now prepare yourself to be awed by him once again as he breaks down America’s mental health system and how it has less to do with gun control than many think. As John points out, people–especially politicians, and in this case those running for president–always lean on discussions of mental health after a mass shooting instead of actually doing anything about gun control, and that’s not what should be happening. “The aftermath of a mass shooting might actually be the worst time to talk about mental health,” John states, “because for the record, the vast majority of mentally ill people are nonviolent, and the vast majority of gun violence is committed by non-mentally ill people.” He also blasts the current mental health system, which often puts those with the most severe problems in jails rather than trying to treat their real issues. “Finding out jails are our largest provider of mentally health treatment is like finding out Lil’ Wayne lyrics are our greatest source of sexual education.” Do yourself a favor and watch the entire clip. John Oliver, you are the best.
He brought his '1989' covers to TDS
Ryan Adams gave his Taylor Swift‘s 1989 covers their late-night debut last night on The Daily Show. Trevor Noah picked Adams for his first musical guest since taking over for Jon Stewart early this week. The singer/songwriter performed “Bad Blood,” “Style, and “Blank Space” (which he dedicated to Sandra Bullock‘s character in the movie The Net), and it was just as great as the album. More »
The subject of Jake Gyllenhaal‘s height has been a very highly debated topic. Things got so crazy in fact that in June, Jake called into the podcast Mystery Show–where host Starlee Kine was trying to figure out his height–to settle it once and for all. As he had told her then, “I am actually five foot eleven and one half of an inch.” So you’d think people would accept that from Jake, right? Except no. People were still fighting! So when Starlee popped by Conan last night, Jakey showed up to be measured on national television and try to FINALLY settle this debate. Jake is pretty much the cutest. Although we might still not have a correct answer to how tall he is. Can we measure him in love instead? Cause we’ve got plenty of that for him.
There's a new squad in town
Care for something to make you smile after that last post? How about this. Just when we were getting over our jealousy for Taylor Swift‘s group of friends, and Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence‘s newfound friendship, North West and Ellen DeGeneres go and redefine #SquadGoals. That’s right, these two have their own exclusive girl group now. While Kim Kardashian was busying preparing her her appearance on Ellen, little North had her own fun. The pregnant reality star posted an adorable snap of her two-year-old playing My Little Pony with Ellen, and we can barely deal. More »

"The President is about to get Poped"
In tonight’s episode of Scandal, the Pope and Associates team need to solve their most important case to date. It didn’t take long for the show to crush our Olivia-and-Fitz-are-finally-together dreams. After photos of them are leaked for all of America to see, Fitz is determined to find out who did it, while Olivia leaves D.C. So who’s responsible? We want to say it’s Mellie, but who knows! It could also be Fitz who doesn’t care who knows about the two of them. Or maybe it’s Jake, who just wants Olivia back. There are so many possibilities! But if you’re itching for more details before tonight’s episode, People just released an exclusive sneak peek at episode two called “Yes”, and you need to see it. More »

These guys know what they're talking about...
Everyone has questions about the universe, but Stephen Colbert likes to contemplate the mysteries of the universe with Tom Hanks. On yesterday’s episode of The Late Show, Colbert (minus his sexy beard) and the Hanks lay down on some fake grass in another segment of “Big Questions with even Bigger Stars.” So you can imagine what went down. “What would you do with a time machine?” Stephen asked, with Tom hilariously responding, “What would anyone do with a time machine? Go back in time and hold myself as a baby.” Of course that’s what we would do too. Duh. Watch the hilarious clip above for more important questions answered.
