Trump supporter Tim Allen beats TDS-infected Candice Bergen in TV show ratings

Suck it, Murphy Brown.

From USA Today: After the first week of the television season, Tim Allen has bragging rights over Candice Bergen.

The return of Allen’s sitcom Last Man Standingreached 8.1 million viewers on Fox last Friday night. That was more than the 7.5 million people who tuned into the revival of Bergen’s “Murphy Brown on CBS the night before.

CBS heavily promoted the return of “Murphy Brown” after two decades, and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had a cameo in the first episode.

Last Man Standing” had been gone just a year, canceled by ABC in a decision that Allen said left him “stunned and blindsided.” But Fox brought it back, and on its first week it was the network’s most popular entertainment show, particularly impressive considering Friday is one of the least-watched nights on television.

ABC said its decision was strictly business after it decided against airing comedies on Friday, but there were political overtones. Allen supports President Donald Trump and his lead character, Mike Baxter, has been described as Archie Bunker with a college education. Some conservatives said the cancellation was proof that they weren’t valued as customers in liberal Hollywood.

The victory over “Murphy Brown” was “a very big upset,” said Marc Berman, a veteran television analyst who runs the Programming Insider.

Murphy Brown” had the misfortune of competing against real-life politics, since the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh aired the day of its premiere, giving big boosts that evening to Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who together reached nearly 10 million viewers, Nielsen said.

Seth MacFarlane has butt hurt over Tucker Carlson telling his audience to believe the opposite of what the MSM reports

seth mcfarlane
Well, Tucker has a valid point. See various examples here, here, here, here, here, here, here, herehere, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
From Daily Mail: Seth MacFarlane, creator of several Fox shows, said he is embarrassed to work for the network after remarks made by anchor Tucker Carlson, telling viewers to believe the opposite of what ‘big news’ reports.
‘If you’re looking to understand what’s actually happening in this country, always assume the opposite of whatever they’re telling you on the big news stations,’ Carlson told his viewers on Friday night.
MacFarlane derided Carlson’s message. ‘In other words, don’t think critically, don’t consult multiple news sources, and in general, don’t use your brain,’ MacFarlane tweeted.
‘This is fringe sh**, and its business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company,’ the creator of Family Guy and The Orville added.
MacFarlane made his comments on a retweet of CNN’s Brian Stetler, whose show Reliable Sources is a look at how the media covers the news.
The CNN host hit out at Carlson saying he is sending a dangerous message to viewers. ‘Isn’t this sad? Tonight Tucker Carlson told his viewers not to believe ANYTHING they learn from his rivals.’
Fox News has been at the top of cable rated shows for years.
Meanwhile other news sources such as CNN, the New York Times, and Washington Post in recent months have called on viewers to look to several news outlets to gain a fuller understanding of what is happening in the world.

The libtard butt hurt is still strong: Hollyweird “power players” whine about Trump

crybaby
These people take themselves way too seriously, as if they are relevant or something.
From Hollywood Reporter: It’s no secret that Hollywood’s not a fan of Donald Trump.
From outspoken condemnations such as Meryl Streep’s infamous Golden Globes speech — in which she criticized Trump’s remarks about a disabled reporter during the 2016 campaign — to director Judd Apatow’s consistent lambasting tweets, criticisms of the president are widespread among the leaders of the entertainment industry.
When asked how his presidency has affected their work and life, those who made the cut for the THR 100 — The Hollywood Reporter’s second annual ranking of the most powerful people in entertainment — had a variety of responses.
Some stayed mum, including Disney CEO Bob Iger (No. 1 on the THR 100), though he notably resigned from Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum June 1 in the wake of Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord signed by nearly every other country. Fox TV Group chairman and co-CEO Dana Walden (No. 16) also skirted the subject of Trump. “I’m not talking about him right now,” she said. “Too depressing.”
Others were much more forthcoming, such as Feud and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy (No. 28). “At least the first hour of every day is dedicated to talking about the writers’ and staffers’ anxieties about the world, vis a vis the Trump administration, and then how are we going to put those anxieties into art,” said the four-time Emmy winner of the atmosphere in his writers room. “That’s new.”
FX Networks CEO John Landgraf (No. 24) didn’t pull any punches as he noted the stress of the last several months. “Trump has made me way more anxious, almost every day. It’s not about politics,” Landgraf said. “It’s about integrity. Judging by his behavior, he is completely amoral, does not believe in the democratic separation of powers enshrined in our Constitution, and recognizes no truth beyond himself — beyond what he needs to be the truth for his own emotional comfort in any given moment. It is scary to me that I have fellow citizens who still think he should be our president.
Some acknowledged the president’s role in revitalizing their work — and deepening its meaning. “Trump is good for the business of escapism,” said Get Out director Jordan Peele (No. 93), while Wonder Woman helmer Patty Jenkins (No. 94) shared a similar, yet slightly more earnest, sentiment: “I think he has put the messages and discussions that I want to have more in focus and pertinent than ever.”
Actor/producer Tyler Perry (No. 67) says Trump “reinvigorated my resolve to bring light and laughter and healing to this world,” while Selma and 13th director Ava DuVernay (No. 70) admitted the president has “devastated me in many ways, but each of those ways has made me more determined than before.” Oscar-winning producer Brian Grazer (No. 95) has been similarly influenced. “I make a lot of Horatio Alger underdog stories,” said the Imagine Entertainment partner. “So his presence in the White House affects how I do that.”
Nancy Dubuc (No. 44), president and CEO of A+E Networks, took a more measured view: “Our allegiance is to our audience,” she said, adding, “We’re careful to listen and represent diverse points of view and bring forward tough issues through the power of storytelling, when warranted.”
For recently appointed Sony Pictures and Entertainment CEO and chairman Tony Vinciquerra (No. 26), the controversy around Trump has had a positive impact. “Political discourse is at an all-time high everywhere I look,” he said. “Given voter apathy, as evidenced by L.A.’s recent 11 percent mayoral voter turnout, hopefully this political discourse will increase citizen engagement.”
Kevin Beggs (No. 91), chairman of Lionsgate TV Group, echoed Vinciquerra’s respect for open political discourse and public engagement. “What is unfolding in the White House is a powerful reminder that politics matter,” Beggs said. “Complacency is the enemy of democracy and it feels like, after decades of relative disinterest or disgust with the political process, people across the socioeconomic spectrum are paying attention. The surge in news readership and viewership is truly inspiring.”
A few THR 100 honorees had a lighter take on Trump, including NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt (No. 27). “We have one less reality show on our schedule,” the studio exec said, referencing the president’s not-so-distant past as Apprentice host. And Greenblatt wasn’t the only one to bring up the president’s history as a star of the small screen. “I finally watch reality TV full-time when I get home: the news,” said Supergirl and Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti (No. 52).
UTA CEO and managing director Jeremy Zimmer (No. 33) admits that Trump has bolstered his reputation at home. Quipped the top agent, “He has made my kids think that I am highly moral and incredibly smart.”

Obama's FCC turns blind eye to network TV porn of fisting, anal sex & penis jokes

There is no end to the depths to which American popular culture sinks.
Now it’s network TV, in a bid for ratings, resorting to smut in prime time — all aided and abetted by the Obama administration’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that’s supposed to regulate the air waves.
Leslie Goldberg reports for The Hollywood Reporter (THR), Oct. 5, 2014, that nearly two months into TV’s fall season, the Big 5 networks are pushing new boundaries with jokes about anal sex, “fisting,” penises, never-heard-of sex positions, and teen masturbation, which Parents Television Council president Tim Winter says are “absolutely inappropriate for primetime broadcast television. The networks are able to do that with few, if any, fines from the FCC.
[Note: For the blessedly innocent who don’t know, “fisting” is the unbelievably perverse homosexual sex act of thrusting a fist into a man’s anus.]
As examples:
Fox’s New Girl: The season premiere featured Zooey Deschanel repeatedly muttering “sex fist!” as an expression for the roommates’ quest to hook up at a wedding. Multiple fisting jokes followed. There were also episodes where the gang got stoned and Deschanel dated a guy with a micropenis (defined as an adult penis that’s less than 2.8 inches in length). “We got away with murder,” exec producer Brett Baer proudly told THR after the premiere. “We’ve given broadcast standards a run for their money.”

Fox’s The Mindy Project: Nearly an entire episode focused on Mindy Kaling and Chris Messina debating whether he “slipped” and attempted to “go in the back door” (anal sex). That led to discussions of sexual positions, including the “necktie,” “ascot” and “bagpipe.” [I have no idea what those positions are, nor will I find out. ~Eowyn]
Disney-owned ABC’s Scandal: The season opening had Kerry Washington and Scott Foley in an explicit entanglement on the beach. Weeks later, showrunner Shonda Rhimes, who defiantly said “I look forward to being censored,” brought “Eiffel Towering” to primetime when the president’s teenage daughter was caught on tape performing the lewd sex act that many had to Google.
[I had to google “Eiffel Towering” as well. It is downright disgusting. Urban Dictionary‘s definition: “Eiffel Tower” is when a woman is on her knees performing fellatio to a man standing, and another man is railing her from behind, thus the two men join hands above the woman to form what looks the Eiffel Tower.]
On Oct. 30, ABC aired a Scandal sex scene minutes after a Charlie Brown Halloween special aimed at children.

ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder, another Shonda Rhimes show, featured a character saying, “He did things to my ass that made my eyes water” [more anal sex] and ended an episode with Viola Davis asking, “Why is your penis on a dead girl’s phone?”
Tim Winter says, “We have to start asking if some of these gray area instances really do cross the line. Hopefully, the FCC will levy a fine or two and let broadcasters know that the law is still in place and they have to respect it.”

TV Reporters Attacked by Mob in California

It’s open season on news reporters.
U.S. media people, most notably CBS reporter Lara Logan, were attacked by Egyptian mobs in Cairo. Now the violence is here.
A news crew from Sacramento, California’s Fox station KTXL was attacked and beaten on Sunday. The crew included a male reporter and a female videographer. Both were repeatedly struck, with the woman being pulled to the ground by her hair and kicked in the face. They were trying to cover reaction to a recent murder.
Go HERE to see two videos taken by TV stations. Here’s a video I found on YouTube apparently taken by a bystander:
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfYoJnlVxMM]
Fox 40 and the reporter explain:

“This is one of the hazards of the business but we didn’t expect what we encountered here today,” said reporter John Lobertini.
Early this morning, a man who friends identify as 27-year-old Chester Jackson was shot and killed in a parking lot outside an IHOP in the 2900 block of Advantage Way. Sacramento Police say it started as a fight inside the restaurant.
Friends and family gathered at the scene Sunday and set up a memorial with candles and balloons.
When FOX40 reporter John Lobertini and photojournalist Rebecca Little approached around 4 p.m.  to see if anyone wanted to talk about what happened, they were attacked.
Several people pulled Little to the ground by her hair and kicked her in the face. “When I fell on the ground I was protecting myself, and then she kicked me and I was still kinda paralyzed, and I hear my reporter John say, ‘get up, get up,’” said Little.
Lobertini was also attacked. “I was punched on the side of my face,” said Lobertini, “but it was a situation where I was trying to fight off 6 or 7 or 8 people, I can’t even count them.”
