Salon talks to writers from “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” “The Daily Show” and “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee”
The breathtaking BBC series enjoyed by stoners and 8-year-olds alike is finally back, and it’s called … Planet Earth II. After ten years, you’d think they would’ve come up with a better name. Let’s just say if the BBC asked me for a suggestion, I would’ve said Our Planet Still
After much hype over Bill Maher’s invitation to host Breitbart provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos on his show “Real Time” on Friday, the two got along famously, bonding over their shared love of free speech and the unifying power of humor in a one-on-one conversation. It seemed that Yiannopoulos had found a warm embrace on Maher’s set — but […]
There’s a new ‘alternative history’ drama hitting TV this week, and it’s set to give The Man in the High Castle a run for its money. SS-GB screens on BBC1 in the UK this Sunday (there’s no word on an American air-date yet) and like its Amazon counterpart, is set in a world where Germany […]

Information has slowly been trickling out about what fans can expect from the future of Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” but at least we know when they will finally get to enjoy Season 2: Halloween.
The release date for the next set of nine episodes came when Netflix dropped a short teaser trailer during Super Bowl 51. It gave fans just enough information to confirm a few things we’ve been waiting to hear. For instance, we know definitively that Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) will be back in Season 2. And we know the Upside Down is going to play a major role in the story. The tagline for the trailer, “The World is Turning Upside Down” is a big hint for what we can expect out of “Stranger Things 2.”
Clips from the trailer suggest that, unlike the man-sized Demogorgon creature from Season 1, “Stranger Things” Season 2 will play host to a much and scarier Upside Down-esque creature. Fan theories suggest that it’s another pseudo-“Dungeons & Dragons” monster called the Thessalhydra.
We also have heard a few other key tidbits. There are several new characters coming to “Stranger Things” in Season 2, and some famous casting to go with them. Paul Reiser (“Mad About You”) is joining the cast as a new government heavy named Dr. Owens, and his character is inspired, at least in some ways, by Reiser’s character Carter Burke in the 1986 movie “Aliens.”
Sean Astin (“The Lord of the Rings”) is joining up as another adult around town named Bob Newby. Bob went to high school with Sheriff Hopper (David Harbour) and Joyce Byers (Winona Ryder). He’s also Joyce’s new boyfriend, much to Hopper’s chagrin, it seems.
We also know there are a few new kids joining the group. Max (Sadie Sink) is a tomboy who will be hanging out with Mike (Finn Wolfhard), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin), Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and Will (Noah Schnapp). Dacre Montgomery plays her older step-brother, Billy.
We’re still thin on “Stranger Things” Season 2 details as far as plot, but for now, at least we have a countdown clock for new episodes.
Spoiler alert: Do not read unless you’re caught up on the first season of Netflix’s “Stranger Things.”
The first season of Netflix’s horror series “Stranger Things” has had fans buzzing since its premiere in 2016 , and now that information about the future of the series is starting to come out, theories are emerging about things to come in Season 2.
The season finale, titled “Chapter Eight: The Upside Down,” tied up the season’s overarching search for Will Byers (Noah Schnapp), with his mom Joyce (Winona Ryder) and Sheriff Hopper (David Harbour) discovering the boy in a dark alternate universe. To the relief of his friends and family, Will returns home safely following a short hospital stay.
But cryptic — and even downright confusing — cliffhangers suggest all is not well in Hawkins, Indiana. That’s bad for the characters fans have come to love, but good for us who can’t wait to see what happens next.
And now we’ve gotten a few more choice tidbits. Netflix released a teaser trailer for Season 2 during Super Bowl 51 that showed a few details and confirmed a few theories. But those details have kicked up a whole new set of questions, and fans have dug deep into the info to formulate all new ideas about Season 2.
Here are nine of the most interesting fan theories, circulating on Reddit, predicting where Season 2 of the critically acclaimed Duffer brothers’ series is heading.
1. Eleven is alive, but she’s in serious trouble
The Super Bowl 51 trailer confirmed what everyone suspected: Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) survived her encounter with the Demogorgon creature in Season 1, and she’ll be coming back in Season 2. Show creators Matt and Ross Duffer have said we’ll see more of Elle’s background and origins. And given the way Mike (Finn Wolfhard) seemed distressed about Eleven in first season, it seems very likely that finding and saving Eleven will be another element that looms large in Season 2.
2. Eleven is inextricably tied to the Upside Down
She said it herself in an early episode — that she’s the monster. We discover more toward the end of Season 1 during a flashback, when Elle touches the faceless creature for the first time after entering an alternate world through a sensory tank at the local government lab. It’s that contact with the demogorgon that has fans thinking that’s when she was infiltrated by its darkness. With more Upside Down creeping into Hawkins and Eleven back for sure, the idea that there’s more to her relationship with the monsters is gaining some traction.
3. The Thessalhydra from ‘D&D’ is Season 2’s monster
Fans paid very close attention to the final “Dungeons & Dragons” game of Season 1, in which Will defeated a creature called the “Thessalhydra.” Like the hydra of Greek myth, the Thessalhydra has several heads (eight, in fact), and regenerates them after they get cut off. The giant creature shown in the Super Bowl teaser looks an awful lot like it could be a multi-headed hydra monster. And according to fan theories, that last “D&D” game was foreshadowing the monster in Season 2. That part refers to how Will managed to take out seven of the Thessalhydra’s head in the game, accidentally leaving one behind to allow the creature to regenerate.
4. Nancy Wheeler may ultimately wind up with Jonathan Byers
Sure, the show ends with Nancy (Natalia Dyer) in Steve Harrington’s arms, but one observant fan noted her distant stare as he held her in his arms. Just seconds prior, she had given a special gift to Jonathan (Charlie Heaton) — a still camera to replace the one that Steve (Joe Keery) cruelly broke in an earlier episode. The fact remains, Jonathan and Nancy were the ones to team up against the monster and Steve only barged in on their plot unwittingly at the last minute. The two have a strong connection.
5. Barb’s disappearance will be a major problem
The small amount of information trickling out about Season 2 has confirmed one thing: Barb’s dead. Bummer. Fans have been demanding #JusticeForBarb and the Duffer Brothers have said Barb will get it in Season 2. But from what we’ve heard so far, there might be more than justice. Barb’s disappearance sounds like it looms large over Hawkins, Indiana, affecting the town in Season 2. It also sounds like Sheriff Hopper (David Harbour) has been covering up the circumstances of Barb’s death and Will’s disappearance to protect the Byers. Or at least, that’s how it seems.
6. Will Byers is part monster now
We see Will cough up one of those slimy things from the Upside Down world in which he resided for nearly the entire season. Then the bathroom in which he’s standing flickers, bringing the world’s creepy darkness into view momentarily. Will looks concerned, then he returns to his mom and brother acting completely normal. If the above fan theory No. 2 is true, it stands to reason that since Will was in contact with the faceless monster, that he too has a touch of its evil magic inside of him. Clips from the teaser suggest to fans that Will has some connection with the giant Season 2 monster shown there, too, as does the “Thessalhydra” theory.
7. Hopper works for the government now
He’s spotted stepping into a car with a couple of the bad guys from the lab. Earlier on Hopper cut a deal with them to keep their nefarious secrets under wraps in exchange for Will, so this isn’t a huge leap. Still, it could play out several different ways. Some fans think he’s infiltrating the organization in attempts of taking it down while others think he’s rejoining the team after a long absence as a federal agent. The Duffers have suggested Hopper is helping cover up the events of Season 1, and that seems to add more credence to this theory.
8. The Upside Down is Hawkins’ future.
The Upside Down seems to be a parallel universe version of Hawkins, but fans are still trying to figure out what it actually is. One suggestion: the Upside Down isn’t another dimensions, its Hawkins future. The supposition is that, somehow, Eleven tore a hole in the space-time continuum, allowing bits of a potential future to flow into Hawkins to create a time loop. The future she’s seeing? It’s Hawkins after the site has been nuked by the U.S. government to stop the giant creature from the teaser, and the Upside Down. That would explain why the Upside Down a mirror of Hawkins, but ruined, and constantly beset by falling ash. And the monsters are mutated creatures (or people) from the future they’re helping to create. This one has some holes, though.
9. The Upside Down isn’t an evil dimension, it was attacked
Possibly an even better theory to explain the Upside Down is that it’s an alternate dimension, but not a necessarily malignant one. The idea here is that the place looks like Hawkins because it’s just an alternate version of the town where people would otherwise live. The gross tentacles, the creatures, the slugs, and the toxic atmosphere are symptoms of an invasion from a third dimension. This invader destroys life, or even sucks the life out of dimensions. Its ability to cut through and attack other dimensions is why the Demogorgon finds its way into Hawkins. Eleven helped attract the invasion, but it’s still in the early stages of taking over Earth — until Season 2.
During a contentious “Overtime” segment of Bill Maher’s “Real Time” on Friday, Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos contended that transgender people are “vastly disproportionately involved in sex crime.”
He’s right, they are: Because transgender are disproportionately the victims of those types of crimes.
For details on this, you can click here or here or here . (And bear in mind that whatever numbers you hear about attacks on trans people might be too low: There are widespread complaints that crimes against transgender people are undercounted.)
The point Yiannopoulos was trying to make — that we should be worried that trans women will commit sexual assaults if they’re allowed to use women’s bathrooms — has been shot down here and here and here.
Yiannopoulos’s own publication, Breitbart, recently listed cases it cites as proof that there’s a danger of men assaulting women in women’s bathrooms. We agree, that’s a real concern.
But nearly every example cited by Breitbart involves men, not transgender women — women who were identified as male at birth, but who now identify themselves as female.
In fact, of the more than 20 cases cited by Breitbart – you can read the article here — there is only one case in which one of the suspects purportedly claimed to be transgender.
As Larry Wilmore noted in the “Overtime” segment, it’s easy to pull one person from a large group to stereotype the larger group.
“You can always find an extreme person that becomes the object of your attack to assign that to everybody,” he said. “So if you say, well that person is weird, or they want to commit sexual assault, then everybody thinks all transgender people want to do is commit sexual assault.”
That’s when Yiannopoulos said transgender people are disproportionately involved in sexual assault, and that that was “not a controversial statistic.”
He’s right — it’s not controversial at all to say trans people are “disproportionately involved” in sex crimes.
Except that they’re only “involved” in the same way people who are robbed are “involved” in robberies.
Milo Yiannapoulos’ appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher” might have been somewhat tepid. But on “Overtime,” the YouTube exclusive “Real Time” aftershow, the sparks flew furiously when panelist Larry Wilmore tore into Yiannopoulos when the Breitbart editor went off on a transphobic rant.
At the start of the 13-minute edition of “Overtime,” Maher asked Yiannopoulos why he singled out a transgender woman during a recent university appearance. Yiannopoulos justified his behavior with a rant aimed at the transgender community generally. (You can read more about that here.)
Yiannopoulos then defended efforts to force transgender people to use bathrooms assigned to their birth gender, a position Maher called “not unreasonable.” Wilmore spoke up, comparing the struggle of transgender people to the struggles of gays. He said it was easy to scapegoat an entire group based on extreme examples.
Things heated up from there as Wilmore and fellow panelist Malcolm Nance pushed back, until Yiannapoulos resorted to ad hominem attack.
“We were having such a nice time, but you [Bill Maher] always have such awful people on your show,” Yiannopoulos said. “They’re so stupid.”
After a flustered Maher began to talk back, Yiannopoulos continued: “You need to start inviting higher IQ guests.”
That’s when Wilmore had had enough. “Hold on Bill,” he said, turning to Yiannapoulos, to calmly add, “You can go f— yourself.”
Moments later, he objected to Yiannopoulos’ insults at actress Leslie Jones: “Leslie Jones is not barely literate, you can go f— yourself for that as well.”
At that, Maher weighed in, castigating Yiannopoulos for the personal attack, adding about Wilmore, “this guy has done things that allowed you to f—ing live.”
Watch the whole exchange below.
After a week-long lead up rife with controversy, viewers probably expected fireworks — if not fire and brimstone — from Breitbart News Editor and professional troll Milo Yiannopoulos tonight on “Real Time with Bill Maher.” After all, the announcement of the right wing provocateur’s appearance led journalist Jeremy Scahill to cancel his scheduled appearance on the HBO show
Alas, his appearance at the top of the show felt less like a debate, and more like an indulgent parent had impatiently tried find common ground with a teenager shouting the f-word in church.
More to come…
CNN got back at Donald Trump on Thursday after the cable news network was the target of repeated attacks during a bizarre press conference by creatively trolling the president on Twitter.
— CNN (@CNN) February 17, 2017
The bold move by CNN’s social media team includes various hand gestures from the wild, 77-minute press conference during which Trump dubbed the network “very fake news.”
“The press has become so dishonest, that if we don’t talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people,” Trump said on Thursday. “The press, honestly, is out of control. The level of dishonesty is out of control.”
After a 24-minute opening statement that included statements such as, “Drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars,” Trump took questions from reporters, who he accused to their faces of pushing “fake news.”
Trump then said he doesn’t watch CNN anymore and took credit for a recent spike in cable news ratings, but then said he watches CNN and doesn’t like the tone.
“I don’t mind bad stories. I can handle a bad story better than anybody, as long as it’s true,” Trump said. “I’m not OK when it is fake. I watch CNN and it’s so much anger and hatred.”
On Wednesday, CNN’s Jim Acosta said “the fix is in” after Trump only called on conservative news organizations during a news conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
During Thursday’s press conference, Trump repeatedly pointed at Acosta and promised to eventually call on him. Once he did, the CNN reporter said, “Just for the record, we don’t hate you.”
“Ask Jeff Zucker how he got his job,” Trump said, referring to the CNN Worldwide president who used to oversee Trump’s “Apprentice” reality show.
It will be interesting to see what Trump thinks of CNN’s video.
Hillary Clinton is out of the woods and in New York City to catch a Broadway show. So, why not invite her “Saturday Night Live” likeness to dinner?
Clinton was spotted dining out with “SNL” star Kate McKinnon on Wednesday night before she headed out to see Glenn Close in the musical, “Sunset Boulevard,” according to a Page Six report Thursday night. The column even ran a fuzzy snap of the two Hillarys. (Yeah, we’re pretty sure that’s them. See it below.)
— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) February 17, 2017
“Lots of laughter emanated from their table,” said an unnamed source.
According to Page Six, one diner chanted “Lock him up!” in a somewhat tacky show of solidarity, riffing off of Trump’s famed anti-Clinton cheer.
Clinton has been emerging from her post-election fortress of solitude in recent days, tweeting jabs at her former Pizzagate foe Michael Flynn and trolling Trump on his widely reviled (and likely unconstitutional ) travel ban.
She also shared a video message earlier in the month for a women’s conference, saying she “remains convinced that the future is female.” The former secretary of state is also writing a book about her painful loss to Trump in what’s being billed as a collection of personal essays.
If Clinton keeps at it, McKinnon may have an excuse to put on that pantsuit once again.
(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Thursday’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy”)
Tensions have been high ever since Dr. Minnick stepped foot into Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital and effectively took over Dr. Richard Webber’s position, Director of the Residency Program, courtesy of Dr. Miranda Bailey. And on Thursday night’s episode, things just got a lot worse.
Dr. Minnick implemented Phase 2 of her teaching program, literally kicking the surgeons who have banded against her in support of Webber out of their operating rooms, and placed residents in charge, which made no one happy (well, except for the residents).
There’s the camp — which is mostly made up of attending physicians — who are completely loyal to Dr. Webber and have basically started a war with Dr. Bailey in protest of Dr. Minnick being hired and attempting to run things. Then there’s the other camp — which is mostly made up of residents — who love Dr. Minnick because she’s getting them the surgical practice they need. These two factions are constantly clashing — with each other and with the Chief of Surgery, Dr. Bailey.
In short, it’s just a whole big mess. Other than one of the residents killing a patient (not intentionally, of course), loyalties are being questioned and friends are being called traitors. Yeah, it’s ugly.
But because this is Shondaland, we’re not surprised. We couldn’t expect anything less than drama, drama and drama with a little side of drama and a hint of an ugly-cry. And this isn’t even the worst we’ve seen from Shonda Rhimes.
But that only means things are about to get even worse.
So will Dr. Minnick break apart Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital and run some surgeons out of the regular cast of “Grey’s Anatomy?” We actually think so.
Not because we want it to happen, but because this is “Grey’s Anatomy” and after Shonda took McDreamy away from us, anything is possible. So, just be prepared for someone — perhaps even your favorite remaining character — to disappear in the next couple of episodes.
Celebrities, journalists, and late-night hosts have already shared their confusion over President Donald Trump’s press conference on Thursday. For Seth Meyers, the “bats— crazy” event led him to shred his original Late Night script.
In a clip from Thursday’s episode, Meyers explained that for the episode’s Closer Look segment, his team already had a topic and draft they felt good about — until Trump’s comments forced them to pivot.”
“Then, Donald Trump held what can only be described as a bats— crazy press conference that rendered this script completely meaningless,” he said as he brought out a shredder to destroy the script. “Bye, dead jokes.”
Meyers touched on many of the most cringeworthy moments of the press conference, ranging from Trump’s “ranting and raving” to his defense of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
He also pointed out Trump’s response to reporter April Ryan, who asked the president will meet with the Congressional Black Caucus. Trump fired back at her, “Do you want to set up the meeting? Are they friends of yours?”
Meyers said, “It’s racist to assume all black people know each other. You don’t know all orange people. ‘Hey Donald, can you set up a meeting with Snooki and the Lorax?’”
Late Night airs on NBC at 12:35 a.m. ET. See the clip above.
“It is very unfair what’s been done to him,” Turx stated. “So I understand why he’s so defensive. “I’m with him when it comes to being outraged about him being charged with this anti-Semitism.”
This evening, the network put together a clip of Trump’s most outlandish hand gestures at today’s mammoth news conference — all set to classical music, as if POTUS were a conductor.
President Trump held a wide-ranging press conference Thursday, during which he covered everything from his alleged connection with Russia to his relationship with the media. Earlier in the day, CNN’s Jake Tapper called it “unhinged.” On The Late Show, Stephen Colbert struggled to find a way to describe it.
“It’s kind of hard to characterize the press conference,” the host admitted in a clip from Thursday’s episode. “Words fail me.”
He wasn’t the only one; the show then jumped to a clip of a Fox News anchor saying, “Well, alrighty then,” when Trump finished speaking.
Colbert went on, “He started off by defending the rough start his administration has had by immediately attacking America’s true enemy — anybody but him.”
During his press conference, Trump said that he “inherited a mess.” To which Colbert responded, “No, you inherited a fortune, we elected a mess.”

The Late Show airs on CBS at 11:35 p.m. ET.
“This was a president saying, ‘I’m in charge — I know what I’m doing. I’m not going to bend to Washington. Washington’s going to have to get used to me,'” the Fox News anchor noted.
The WSJ story also stated that Kushner has been “pushing the issue” with other Time Warner execs, including CNN president Jeff Zucker.
“So is there anything Donald Trump could do that you would ever criticize?” Cooper asked. After asking him again, Lord replied by saying he just said that Trump made a mistake on his Electoral College win.
“You couldn’t turn away,” Kurtz told host Bret Baier. “That was the harshest and most sustained attack on the media by a president of the United States in history. Not even close.”
Scott Pelley opened tonight’s CBS Evening News by actually saying, “Today we learned the length of the president’s fuse––28 days.”

“Scandal” actor Scott Foley is catching some flack on Twitter after tweeting that “we” are responsible for President Donald Trump.
“This. Is. our. President. We chose him. Yes, we,” Foley tweeted, and Twitter descended.
Foley, it should be noted, tweeted the message after several others wherein he criticized Trump, saying, “Ranting and raving. Also, a bully…. Uranium. Nuclear weapons. And lots of other bad stuff… Not good.” But Twitter was laser-focused on what it took to be some kind of support for the President, flooding Foley’s timeline with outrage.
Apparently playing along, Foley has retweeted many of the best responses.
“Shut the fuck up Jake Ballard,” said one irate user, referencing Foley’s “Scandal” character. “You ugly ass cracker. No wonder Olivia wants nothing to do with ur stupid ass.”
“Thank God Fitz was always my n—-,” said another. “F— Jake.”
“YOU, my friend, are cancelled,” added one more. “i never liked your ass on scandal anyway. choke.”
Actress Aisha Tyler came to Foley’s defense, saying to some detractors,” I think you didn’t understand what he intended to say. I think you are very, very confused.”
Of course, that just caused more drama, with one user saying, “Don’t come to his rescue. We all understand what he said and he’s wrong. 94% didn’t choose him. So there’s no we.”
Later, Foley tried to clarify things, saying in two messages, “Feel as if maybe that tweet needed a *smh at the end…Or an *i can’t believe that* at the beginning. Although the tweets that immediately preceded it should’ve spoken volumes.”
See below for a sampling of tweets in response to Foley’s tweet.

Actress Bijou Phillips was hospitalized with a blood infection and is awaiting a kidney transplant.
According to TMZ, the 36-year-old actress was rushed to a hospital in Santa Barbara, California, on Wednesday night due to a complication of her ongoing kidney disease.
Phillips’ representatives revealed on Thursday that the actress has been battling the disease for the last five years, recently undergoing dialysis treatments.
“Bijou was born with small kidneys and has been quietly dealing with kidney disease for the last five years, including being on the transplant list,” Phillips’ representatives said in a statement to People.
“In an effort to heal her body she has led a stress-free life with a vegan diet, which eventually wasn’t enough and she’s been privately having dialysis,” the statement continued. “She recently found out one of her friends is a match and is optimistic that she will have a transplant soon.”
Phillips is the daughter of Mamas & the Papas singer John Phillips and is married to “That ’70s Show” star Danny Masterson.
She is a model, singer and actress who most recently appeared in a recurring role on the Fox comedy “Raising Hope.”
