Seven hosts dedicated their Wednesday shows to raising awareness about the urgent need to slow global warming.
The rapper’s tweets about her cousin’s friend, who she said had swollen testicles after taking the Covid vaccine, set off a flood of commentary.
Seven of TV’s most popular late-night programs and hosts, including Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Samantha Bee, plan to address the subject on the night of Sept. 22.
A nomination for a lightweight Netflix comedy and the omission of Ethan Hawke’s John Brown were among the few shockers.
“I’m confused — I thought these guys hated cancel culture,” Kimmel said after the Republicans ousted Cheney from her leadership position in the House on Wednesday.
“It has been five months since Trump was indefinitely suspended from Facebook for the minor infraction of trying to overthrow the government. I mean, who hasn’t done that?” Trevor Noah said.
Federal agents “made sure to show up in daylight, when Rudy was still asleep in his coffin,” Jimmy Kimmel said on Wednesday.
“As we’ve explained on this show many times before, the culture and system of policing in this country must be dismantled and reformed,” Meyers said on Wednesday.
Colbert pointed out that the conflict “has been going on so long, the first ‘Iron Man’ movie opens with Tony Stark in Afghanistan.”
“Your murder speaks louder than your words,” Trevor Noah said of the man accused of killing eight people, most of them women of Asian descent.
“There you go, baby. You’re rich! Buy yourself something nice, like rent or medicine,” Colbert said on Wednesday’s “Late Show.”
“Because only by facing this truth will we have any hope of stopping it from happening again,” Colbert said. “Also, I’m pretty convinced it wasn’t antifa now.”
The “Daily Show” host said the threat of a defamation lawsuit forced anchors at the right-wing news site into “behaving like actual journalists.”
“Yesterday, President Biden announced a dramatic change to America’s Covid plan: There is one,” Colbert said on Wednesday.
Residents of Palm Beach, Fla., objected to President Trump’s post-White House plan to live at his Mar-a-Lago resort. “In other words, God exists and has a very good sense of humor about all of this,” Kimmel said.
The Trump years created a bumper crop of liberal comedy shows — almost all of which have been canceled. Why is the president so impervious to satire?
“Do not tell Trump that he can say anything he wants about race,” Bee said — one reason being that “Mark Burnett will have to spend hours erasing the tapes.”
“I assume the night started with each of them being roused from a coma,” Colbert said of the uncommitted audience at President Trump’s Philadelphia town hall.
The host of “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” also puts Carol Burnett and octopus videos on her list of essentials.
Not only is the president continuing to forgo masks, Noah said, but Trump also did something “he is usually too afraid to do — an interview with someone who doesn’t work at Fox News.”
The vice president said he wanted to look Mayo Clinic workers in the eye. More than one host noted that surgical masks cover the mouth.
