'In the Flow with Affion Crockett' Puts Rush Limbaugh and Chris Rock Together (VIDEO)

'Rush Limbaugh' and 'Chris Rock,' 'In the Flow with Affion Crockett''In the Flow with Affion Crockett' (Sun., 9:30PM ET on FOX) has been a real mixed bag, and it hasn't found much audience support. That said, though, Crockett does have some pretty spot-on impressions, and there are funny bits to be found on the show. We were particularly impressed with his take on Chris Rock.

Crockett matched both his unique voice and cadence, as well as his body tics perfectly. It made for an awkward sketch with the show's impression of Rush Limbaugh, because it just wasn't nearly as good.

Stephen Colbert Thinks the Heat Index is a Hoax (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Aug 10th 2011 6:50AM
'The Colbert Report'On 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights., 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central) host Stephen Colbert announced that he's in agreement with "pundit, and part-time weather balloon, Rush Limbaugh" on at least one issue.

Discussing the heat index, which is included in most weather forecasts in the US nowadays, Colbert said he and Limbaugh are "not buying the heat-steria."

He then played a clip from Limbaugh's radio show in which the pundit made the heat index seem rather sinister.

Limbaugh said it's "manufactured by the government" to tell us what the temperature feels like (when humidity and other elements are factored-in to the actual air temperature).

Limbaugh joins actress Vivica Fox, former Olympian Shawn Johnson, 2002 Miss America Katie Harman, jazz musician Dave Koz and American Idol season 7 finalist Brooke White on the panel.<

Bill O'Reilly gets in snipefest with Law & Order

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 11th 2009 6:43PM
As part of his never-ending quest to make himself the news, the "Culture Warrior" has lobbed another fireball on the world of popular culture. This time it's Law & Order SVU creator Dick Wolf, because the show mentioned him.

This week's episode, titled "Anchor," featured a character who kills children birthed by illegal immigrants in America. His attorney, played by John Laroquette, fashions a defense that the TV and radio talking heads who rail against illegal immigrants are responsible for his actions. He even puts one on the stand, played by Bruce McGill, who seems to be channeling a Warner Bros. cartoon version of Lou Dobbs.

The attorney mentions O'Reilly by name, along with Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, as a "cancer spreading ignorance and hate." O'Reilly not only ripped Wolf a new one for working him into his show, but also brought in fellow pundit Laura Ingraham who frankly seemed more upset that she wasn't one of the name smeared in the episode like a jilted prom queen who only scores "Miss Congeniality". Well, darling, there's always Criminal Minds.

Shatner takes on Limbaugh on upcoming Raw Nerve

William Shatner takes on Rush Limbaugh on Raw Nerve.It'll be a feast for the eyes for anyone who loves to watch doughy, puffed up, bombastic old men when Rush Limbaugh sits down with William Shatner on the Biography Channel series, Raw Nerve.

Airing this Sunday after taping last summer, the Shatner Vs. Limbaugh clash touches on everything from family background to health care. But the exchange looks like a couple aging members of a country club debating stock tips at the 19th hole.

I have no interest in the inevitable political jibber-jabber headed our way Sunday. But, I'd love to see these two square off over who gets the last piece of lasagna. The fatty grunts alone would blow out your TV speakers.

The Jay Leno Show: Rush Limbaugh

Rush Limbaugh on the Jay Leno Show
Putting a controversial egomaniac like Rush Limbaugh on Jay Leno's late night dais might seem like a squeeze play for a show that's reaching the bottom of the ninth of its opening day. And, well, it is, or at least it smells like it. Jay is no stranger to controversial guests, from his infamous interview with Hugh Grant just days after he got caught nibbling on a hooker's tea and crumpets to his recent sit-down smack-down with Kanye West.

So "El Rushbo" sounds like a natural punching bag for Leno's friendly jabs and right crosses, right? Not really. Leno bled into confrontational the way two guys in a bar argue a round of "F*$&, Marry or Kill," but for the most part, let the big-headed one (both emotionally and physically) speak as long as he wanted.

And when Rush is on your show, that's exactly what you let him do. Let him speak until the blood stops rushing to his brain. Whether you love him, hate him, or constantly think about the level of hell that's been specifically designed for him, he makes for an entertaining interview.

The Jay Leno Show: Jennifer Garner, Rep. Barney Frank

Jay Leno interviews Barney Frank in Ten@Ten
The Jay Leno Show
has only been on for a week, but it's already starting to fall into a familiar pattern, and that's a good thing for late night. Familiarity creates a steady audience by making it more comforting, and helps weed out what doesn't work and focus on what does.

Unfortunately, the thing that makes the late night format work is breaking Jay's show.

Just about the only thing that works with Jay's show is his monologue. The rest make him feel more out of his element than Donnie from The Big Lebowski.

Rush to guest on The Colbert Report

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 15th 2008 5:25PM
Thumbs up with ColbertLeave it to Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert to tackle the tough issues, to tame the tiger, to take on all comers, to invite the biggest, loudest, richest mouth in radi... Oh? You mean, it's not that Rush?

That's right. The Colbert Report has booked Rush to appear Wednesday night (11:30 PM/EST). That's Rush the band, not Rush Limbaugh, the radio yapper. Limbaugh would no doubt have been the butt of countless jibes -- assuming he would even submit to the possibility of being kidded -- but he's not coming on the show.

Rush, the Canadian band, will not have to worry about Colbert's rapier wit. They're coming on the show to sing.

This is a real feather in the cap for The Colbert Report. Rush has not appeared on American TV in over 30 years, and they're going to perform "Tom Sawyer," their most-famous song.

Stephen C. has been embracing the music this summer. In addition to Rush, Nas is going to perform on July 23, Toby Keith on July 28, and Crosby, Stills and Nash (no Young -- although he has appeared in the past on the show) on July 30.

Is this a trend away from comedy for The Colbert Report or just injecting some variety into the format? I think it's the latter, and as long as I like the musical act, I'm okay with it.

Family Guy: Blue Harvest (season premiere)

Family Guy: Blue Harvest(S06E01) A long time ago, but somehow in the future . . .

Who would've thunk it? When Family Guy premiered back in 1999(!) many people tossed it away as a pale imitation of The Simpsons and kind of ignored it. Who knew that eight years later, at the start of the show's 6th season, Seth MacFarlane and his crew would be able to get the approval of George Lucas himself to air a spoof of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. It shows how far Family Guy has come since it returned to the prime-time airwaves.

Things I Hate About TV: Workaholics in Christmas specials

by Jay Black, posted Dec 22nd 2006 7:05PM
Thanks, Mr. Dickens for spawning 9 million hacks of your Christmas creation.I had trouble sleeping the other night (there were sugar plums dancing through my head – angry, murderous sugar plums), so I turned to the best TV option I had available to me: TNT HD's replay of A Perfect Day starring Rob Lowe.

Here's the plot: lower middle class guy writes a book that becomes a best seller. As he climbs the economic ladder, he becomes a workaholic and is thus estranged from his family. A mysterious stranger then appears and helps him to realize that true happiness doesn't come from work and success, but rather from spending time with his wife and his improbably named daughter, Carson.

I watched the whole thing for the same reason I play with hangnails and follow Philadelphia sports teams – I secretly hate myself.
