It looks like late-night television is in for another shake-up as Jon Stewart, host of "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central, has announced he will leave the show after 16 years. Stewart took a hiatus from the show in 2013 to direct the movie "Rosewater" released in 2014. Perhaps Stewart now prefers moviemaking rather than the daily grind of television.
For many young viewers, Stewart's show is their source for "news" and opinions. Stewart is expected to make an announcement regarding his departure on tonight's show. Stay tuned!
"On The Shoulders of Giants" is a great film to see in light of recent developments in the NBA. The film was written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (also the executive producer) and Anna Waterhouse. The film was released on February 11, 2011.
Wow. Michelle Wolf's remarks at the White House Correspondents' Dinner , which aired on CSPAN was pretty funny for much of her routine. While there was rarely rip roaring laughter, most of her jokes hit the mark. Some of the shout outs: Reince Priebus (great porn start name), Jake Tapper ( what his orgasm might look like), Rachel Maddow (well, we didn't agree with Wolf's assessment) and Morning Joe (Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough's engagement - "it's like a #MeeToo working out"). All in all it may not make you cry, but it did make you think.
