Colbert Agrees With Ted Nugent, Millennials are 'Stoned on Apathy' (VIDEO)

Ted Nugent, 'The Colbert Report'Ted Nugent describes the Millennial Generation (or Generation Y) as apathetic "while their future crumbles" and "government steals their fortune and lives." Strong words, which Nugent put in the title of his recent editorial for 'The Washington Times,' as detailed on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central).

"Nugent knows the thing that's gonna jolt our youth awake is the newspaper industry," Stephen Colbert said. Later in the show, he even brought out a member of this generation to get their reaction, but the young lady didn't seem to know who Ted Nugent was ...

Colbert took particular delight in a phrase Nugent used in his article. He described today's youth as "terminally stoned on apathy."

Ted Nugent 'Loves' Sarah Palin, But Wouldn't Vote for Her for President (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 6th 2011 3:40PM
Appearing on 'Anderson Cooper 360' (weekdays, 10 PM ET on CNN) rocker, hunter and outspoken Tea Party supporter Ted Nugent heaped praise upon Sarah Palin, but also said she hasn't yet convinced him she has what it takes to be president.

"(Palin's) coming from the street, she's coming from the we-the-people rank-and-file, she makes sense when she talks, she says all the right things, she's sincere, she's knowledgeable , she's articulate, she's damn good-looking, plus she kills moose, how can you go wrong?" Nugent gushed.

However, when Cooper pressed Nugent on whether Palin would make a good president, Nugent balked.

"It's too early to tell. Right know, if we had a vote, I couldn't vote for Sarah Palin. And I love her. I love her madly, and I respect her."

When somebody as naturally sympathetic to Palin as The Nuge doesn't believe he can vote for her, maybe it's time we stop talking about the former half-governor of Alaska as a viable presidential candidate.

Keith Olbermann Makes a Mess of Ted Nugent 'World's Worst' Segment (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 23rd 2010 11:09AM
On Friday's 'Countdown With Keith Olbermann' (weeknights, 8 PM ET on MSNBC) Keith declared rocker Ted Nugent the "worst person in the world" for making some inflammatory racial comments at a concert in Dubuque, Iowa.

Olbermann also speculated on why it took the national media two weeks to pick up on what Nugent had said -- which he chalked up to the Nug's irrelevance -- before suggesting he only finds Nugent's words relevant because the guitar hero will be speaking at a rally Glenn Beck is putting on August 28 in Washington, DC.

Nugent's allegedly racist statement? "There's a lot of white people in this crowd! I like that! This a white town."

While Olbermann was quoting the local paper, a photojournalist who was at the show has come forward to question the accuracy of the quote, and to suggest Nugent -- who does have a history of controversial statements -- was making a sarcastic observation rather than stating a preference for a white crowd.

So that's sort of murky, but Nugent is speaking at the Glenn Beck rally, right?

Actually, no. While there were initially discussions for him to appear, instead he will by putting on a show in Boise, Idaho on August 28th.

So, if you are in Boise, and happened to be watching Olbermann on Friday, the Motor City Madman will still be playing your town on the 28th. And it may even be OK for non-white folks to attend.

Singer Ted Nugent Doesn't Do Drugs; He's Just Crazy (VIDEO)

Singer Ted Nugent Doesn't Do Drugs; He's Just CrazyRocker, hunter, and conservative political activist Ted Nugent appeared on the new 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 11PM ET on TBS). While he was on the show, "The Nuge" took some time out to advocate for his strong anti-drug stance. Nugent said that he never did drugs and that he doesn't want to ever do them.*

Cool. But luckily, or unluckily, the singer managed to sound plenty insane without taking any controlled substances.

During his interview with George Lopez, Nugent screamed, cursed, repeated the same phrases over and over, and gave the camera the finger. Neat! " ... You sound like you're on drugs!" host Lopez said.

Ted Nugent gets to hunt people

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 2nd 2009 1:08PM
Ted NugentI knew that television executives were insane, but I didn't know they would go this far. They're letting right-wing gun advocate rocker Ted Nugent host his own reality television show. In that show, he will train a group of volunteers on how to survive in the wild and then he, along with his 18-year-old son, will hunt them down like dogs.

Wow. Just...wow. Is this legal? I expect that there will be no actual firearms used in the hunting of people, but with Ted Nugent it's hard to be sure. Two of the people behind this show are the same who brought us the two recent Scott Baio reality programs. They are Eric Bischoff, who used to run World Championship Wrestling, and Jason Hervey, who played Fred Savage's older brother on The Wonder Years. They seem appropriate for a show about twisted sport as shared amongst family members.

The show will air in August. I would watch it just to see if Nugent kills someone.

The Simpsons: I Don't Wanna Know Why The Caged Bird Sings

The Simpson Family(S19E04) If I don't make it, feel free to re-marry from anyone on the list on the bulletin board in the closet. -- Marge, during her hostage scare

We had two good things happen this week on The Simpsons. First, we finally had an episode that didn't focus on Homer. Second, we had a guest voice that was actually utilized. Actually, there were two guest voices used well; I just didn't know about one of them until the credits were rolling. More as we progress.

VH1's SuperGroup coming in May

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 28th 2006 11:59AM
ted nugentAre the bands Anthrax, Skid Row and Biohazard really classic rock? I guess they're close enough because artists from each of those bands (Scott Ian, Sebastian Bach and Evan Seinfield, respectively) will be teaming up with Ted Nugent and Jason Bonham (son of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham) for a new VH1 reality series called SuperGroup. The show will chronicle the five rockers as they prepare for a concert in Los Angeles. The show is currently in production, and an airdate has been set for May 18. In the meantime, I'll be trying to find a wormhole in the space-time continuum so I can help these rockers travel back to 1989 when people might have actually been excited about seeing them play together.

The Nuge is gonna clean up Michigan

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 10th 2006 11:01AM
ted nugentTed Nugent --the conservative rocker whose mantra is that you should not only kill everything you eat, but also punch it in the face a few times and tell it that it runs like a girl-- says he may run for governor of Michigan in 2010. Apparently Nugent, whose new reality show Wanted: Ted or Alive kicked off a second season recently on OLN, has a problem with "welfare brats" and doesn't want them getting their hands on his money. Also, he posed this Zen riddle to the public: "A topless grandmother in a sofa surrounded by dog feces? If you're poor, you can't have a dog! You start by eating the (expletive) pets! Am I out of my mind?" Once you've answered that question, young grasshopper, a whole new world will be open to you. As for me, I have no idea what he's talking about.
