On this week’s edition of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, the host discusses the systems in place to investigate and hold police officers accountable for misconduct. And yeah, justice isn’t being served. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver airs Sundays at 11pm Eastern/Pacific on HBO.
Saturday Night Live returned for its latest season with a brand new Donald Trump (Alec Baldwin) and and not-so-dead Hillary Clinton (Kate McKinnon), who faced off in the first presidential debate this week. Unlike the real deal, who stank up the show last year, Baldwin’s Trump is kind of fun, in a gross, Jabba the Hut sort of way. Later in the episode, Larry David and Darrell Hammond joined host Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad) for Celebrity Family Feud as TeamRead More →
Last year, Lane Moore brought us her homage to John Waters’ Cry Baby. For the latest single from her band, It Was Romance, Moore presents ‘Hooking Up with Girls’ as a queer-friendly version of Fiona Apple’s ‘Criminal’. So, if you’re feeling nostalgic for the late 1990s but want a 2016 twist it, this one is for you. Good stuff!

In this week’s edition of Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver was going to take on the Democratic National Convention in the same way he took on the Republican National Convention.

Well, I, Mo Fathelbab, borough native and expert on all things off the L train, am here to share my fun dating tips: 1.)

My boyfriend and I have been together awhile now and when you realize that the sound of your significant other chewing pistachios doesn’t send you into a blind rage (sorry to my ex Phil, whose love of nuts broke us), you begin to discuss the future. All sorts of questions about where things are going, what it all means, if your values and life goals match up, or at least assimilate. But, in the course of these life altering conversations,Read More →
Wow. If you’re not on Louis C.K.’s mailing list then you missed this plea to stop Donald J. Trump at the bottom of today’s email promoting the latest episode of Horace and Pete: “P.S. Please stop it with voting for Trump. It was funny for a little while. But the guy is Hitler. And by that I mean that we are being Germany in the 30s. Do you think they saw the shit coming? Hitler was just some hilariousRead More →
“Do you support ISIS?” There wasn’t malice when that question was asked. It was my Tinder date’s genuine curiosity that prompted it.
