Tina Fey's Likely To Do Sarah Palin On 'SNL' Again

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 18th 2010 6:36PM
tina_fey_sarah_palin_flute_NBCJust in time for the release of her new movie 'Date Night,' watch for Emmy-winner and '30 Rock' star Tina Fey to return to 'Saturday Night Live' to reprise her Sarah Palin impersonation. Tina told the AP that she expects to be back on 'Saturday Night Live,' but hedged her betchas about doing former Governor Sarah Palin again, saying, "It's inevitable that we'll try it, at least. We'll see if it makes it to air."

Actually, this is the perfect time to bring out the Palin material again, only now Sarah has given Tina Fey and the writers a lot more with which to work. Since the last time Fey did Palin on 'SNL,' Sarah resigned from her elected office as Alaska's governor (for the good of the people since she felt she was a lame duck), prompting a lot of speculation about her future in politics.

Keith Olbermann Denies that 'Countdown' is Going Down

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 5th 2010 8:35PM
Fox and MSNBC have been attacking each other with more frequency (but probably less violently) than the Black Spy and the White Spy, and one of their main forms of ammunition have been their respective ratings.

So naturally 'Countdown', hosted by the rather large (both in stature and physical size) talking head Keith Olbermann, had to respond to a report that appeared in the New York Post's "Page Six" column claiming that his show is one baboon hair away from cancellation hell.

Jon Stewart Talks Sarah Palin, Iran on 'The O'Reilly Factor' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 5th 2010 1:58AM
Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly on 'The O'Reilly Factor'Another Jon Stewart segment aired on 'The O'Reilly Factor' (weeknights, 8PM ET on FNC) (check out last night's), and the talk turned to Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton, Iran, and the possibility of Bill O'Reilly running for President with Stewart as his Vice-Presidential running mate.

That's hard to wrap your head around, and no doubt some folks would rather have Stewart as President. Either way, both of these guys can be somewhat annoying. There, we've said it. How about a smackdown in the squared circle? A little 'Wrestlemania' action between these two would be awesome!

Why Does Bill O'Reilly Keep Trying to Out-Funny Jon Stewart?

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 4th 2010 4:01PM
Bill O'Reilly has been on top of the cable news heap for fourteen years now, and for a good reason: whether you agree or not with his politics or his interview style, the man does a great job of putting his interview subjects on the spot and making them squirm. And, let's face it: squirmy interviews make for compelling TV.

One thing O'Reilly doesn't have is a sense of humor. At all. He's just too intense of a personality who takes himself too seriously to be funny. But, for some reason, whenever he gets in Jon Stewart's presence either on 'The Daily Show' or his own 'The O'Reilly Factor,' he spends half the interview belittling 'TDS' and its audience and trying to keep up with Stewart joke-for-joke instead of interviewing him on substance. And it never, ever works.

Here's the first half of the first part of his interview with Stewart, which aired on the 'Factor' last night. The second half is after the jump.

Bill O'Reilly Points Finger at Jon Stewart on 'The O'Reilly Factor' (VIDEO)

The O'Reilly Factor, Jon StewartJon Stewart appeared on 'The O'Reilly Factor' (weeknights, 8PM and 11PM ET on FNC) last night, and was given a little what-for on how he presents Fox News on 'The Daily Show.' After some frightening finger-pointing by Bill O'Reilly, Stewart finally conceded a few things.

"Fox News is the most passionate and sells the clearest narrative of any news organization, if that's how ... are you still referring to it in that manner?" said Stewart.

O'Reilly answered, "Right, that's how the poll referred to it. Nobody had any problem with it. Only you."

Jon Stewart Goes on 'The O'Reilly Factor' Tonight

by Brad Trechak, posted Feb 3rd 2010 10:00AM
Jon Stewart on FoxIt isn't the first time that these two opposing television forces of Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly have collided. Their last match-up was in 2004. However, tonight on the Fox News Channel you can see the first of two parts of the big O'Reilly/Stewart smackdown during 'The O'Reilly Factor.' Two out of three falls! For the Championship of the World!

Well, maybe not any of that stuff, but it will likely be entertaining. Considering that I've watched O'Reilly on 'The Colbert Report' (Papa Bear came home) and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog on 'The O'Reilly Factor' (it was edited for content), I can't see this particular meeting of the minds as anything major.

Of the two, Stewart seems the more savvy but it's likely that O'Reilly will be the winner of any political debate that occurs. After all, he controls the editing room.

Oh please leave political rants in the comments! I beg you! Please, please, please!

Jon Stewart compares Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin to Hannibal Lecter and Clarice StarlingJon Stewart is having soooo much fun with Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin. In this clip from 'The Daily Show,' Stewart mocks Beck for his journal entries on Palin, and compares the two to 'The Silence of the Lambs.'

"She's Clarice Starling trying not to agitate Dr. Lecter!" exclaims Stewart. "Agent Palin, get out of there before he eats your face with a side of Freedom Fries!"

Sarah PalinAfter months of speculation, is Sarah Palin finally headed to television?

You betcha.

The LA Times is reporting that the former vice presidential candidate has joined Fox News under a multi-year deal, a report that has since been confirmed by the network.

"I am thrilled to be joining the great talent and management team at Fox News. It's wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news," Palin said.

TV Moment of 2009: The Rise of Glenn Beck

by Gary Susman, posted Dec 17th 2009 2:30PM
At the dawn of 2009, Glenn Beck was a popular talk radio host with a failed primetime TV show on Headline News. By the end of the year, he was the leader of a political movement. Somewhere in between, he became the biggest star on Fox News, a thorn in the side of the Obama administration, the de facto news agenda-setter for the New York Times and the Washington Post, and a media personality who -- whether you loved or hated him (and there was no middle ground) -- would not, could not be ignored.

First "Spill" O'Reilly, then ... who?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 30th 2009 9:30PM
Spill O'ReillyThere are a few definitive signs that you have become an icon in television news: getting a blog dedicated solely to your ties, winning an "Auto-Tune the News" award, and bringing the world the hilarious tale of an exploding whale.

Last week, Fox News' "No Spin" pundit Bill O'Reilly was cemented into fame when Sesame Street unveiled their "Spill O'Reilly," the newest talking head on the "Grouch News Network" that includes such greats as Walter Cranky, Dan Rather-not and Sally Messy Yuckayel.

This got me thinking...

Who will be the next pundit Grouch on "Sesame Street"?
Glenn Bleeccchhh113 (40.6%)
Keith Moldermann57 (20.5%)
Rachel Madandhow33 (11.9%)
Mucker Carlson3 (1.1%)
Sean Crankity35 (12.6%)

Sesame Street unveils new Bill O'Reilly character

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 26th 2009 2:36PM
Remember the brouhaha with Sesame Street over their alleged swipe at Fox News? Sesame Street has officially extended an olive branch.

Sherrie Westin, executive vice president of the Sesame Workshop, appeared on The O'Reilly Factor to explain the "Pox News" joke and unveil a new character that pays homage to "Papa Bear" as part of the show's long-standing Grouch journalism homages. Just so there's no confusion, the new Sesame Street character is the guy in the suit on the left, not the right, I think.

What Danny is thankful for

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 26th 2009 11:02AM
Danny Gallagher, TV SquadWho doesn't love Thanksgiving? I'll be enjoying mine with all the usual staples: turkey, cranberries, cornbread stuffing, some weird brown thing my father attempted to make and my Mom's mind-numbingly good meliton dressing. I'm literally chomping at the bit to take that first of 227 bites of homemade turkey. I've gone through three remotes in the last hour.

But I have to come up with something to do after all the food has been ravenously devoured by that wolf pack I call my family. And rather than list 100 reasons for regretting life (because 99 of them would be "Why did I eat that?"), here some things I have to be thankful for instead.

MSNBC also apologizes for using wrong Palin footage

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 20th 2009 7:12PM
If you're playing a TV news drinking game wherein you and your dumb little buddies have to do a shot every time someone posts fake footage or film for a story, you might want to think about switching to Tang.

Now MSNBC's Morning Meeting has been caught dipping their hand in the Photoshopping jar when they aired rather obvious fake photos of Sarah Palin while doing a diss-session on the former VP candidate and her never ending book tour. Seriously, why is there this much coverage over one book? Even The Never Ending Story has an ending.



Dylan Ratigan issued an official apology to the viewers, Palin and her family for "mistakenly" using the doctored images. He also said he and the network took the weekend to ensure this would not happen again. I guess that means there's one less email forwarding fratboy on MSNBC's research payroll now.

Cheech and Chong and ... Ann Coulter?!?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 20th 2009 2:29PM
First there was the Lincoln-Douglas debate. Then came the Nixon-Kennedy debate. Now Fox News' Geraldo Rivera continues that great American tradition of the public debate with the Cheech and Chong-Coulter debate.

It might sound like the world's most lopsided episode of Celebrity Deathmatch, but the world's most famous pot comedy duo squared off against the famed conservative pundit on Rivera's "Geraldo at Large" show recently to discuss the opening of the country's first cannibus club in Portland, Oregon and the legalization of marijuana. Despite the craziness of the casting, they actually have a very frank, civilized and enlightening discussion on the subject.

Is It Time to Stop Picking on Glenn Beck?

by Gary Susman, posted Nov 17th 2009 1:00PM
It's easy to make fun of Glenn Beck. We've done it here, and Beck even does it himself (as on the November cover of his Fusion magazine).

But over the last couple of weeks, as Beck lay recuperating from appendicitis, he's been the target of numerous satirical skewerings, from such parodists as 'Saturday Night Live,' 'The Daily Show,' and 'South Park.' Some of these barbs have gone beyond mocking his on-air antics and have gotten viciously personal. Not that we want to be the Beck-lash police, but to paraphrase a well-known Britney Spears fan, is it time to leave Glenn Beck aloooone?
