It wasn’t all politics on TV’s late night shows.

“Try as they might, late night show hosts this year just couldn’t avoid politics entirely.

And though the likes of Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, and others graced our screens this year by taking on the Trump administration, it wasn’t just government talk that dominated the airwaves.

Fortunately, there were plenty of hilarious moments with celebrities, plenty of bizarre segments, and enough to distract us from the garbage fire that has been 2018 that meant we didn’t have to talk Trump the entire year.

Here are some of our favorite moments:

1. Nickelback’s awesome Mean Tweets appearance

Perennial musical punching bag Nickelback got their vengeance earlier this year in Mean Tweets, Jimmy Kimmel’s excellent segment where music stars get to read awful things about themselves.

You have to hand it to the Canadian rock band, they’re pretty good sports about it all.

2. Ariana Grande making light work of the Musical Genre Challenge

We would very happily pay $1.29 on iTunes for Ariana Grande’s ’90s Diva cover of Drake’s “God’s Plan,” because it is that excellent.

 3. Jimmy Kimmel gives the welcome America’s newest citizens deserve

In a year where immigrants have been under constant attack by the Trump administration, it was heartwarming to see Jimmy Kimmel give America’s newest citizens the welcome they deserve.

Can this be a weekly segment already?

4. Nicki Minaj’s incredible X-rated rap for Stephen Colbert

Nicki Minaj rapping about sleeping with Stephen Colbert is something that actually happened this year. And it is awesome.

5. Sir Paul McCartney surprises fans in an elevator

Sir Paul McCartney dropped into The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and as you’d expect, left random people riding the elevator aghast with his appearance. Same, TBH………………………………………………….”

More than 30m people have watched Netflix’s Murder Mystery; why?

Published

The critics might have hated it, but this Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler-starring Agatha Christie pastiche broke the record for Netflix’s biggest opening weekend

Despite the critics (mostly) hating it, we now know that 30.9m Netflix account-holders watched Murder Mystery in its first three days of release. To put that in context: if two people watched the movie on each account, and you imagine them all paying the average $9 price of a cinema ticket, it would give the film an opening weekend of $556m, the third-largest ever. That is by no means a perfect formula, but nevertheless highlights a staggering performance for an Agatha Christie parody that stars Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. How did that happen?

‘Claws’ is the juiciest summer drama you aren’t watching

Published

on

“Claws is one of three excellent shows returning in the next week, in which the leading women are on a quest to empower themselves. Unlike HBO’s award-winning Big Little Lies or FX’s acclaimed Pose, however, this one will air relatively inconspicuously.

It’s a shame, because TNT’s boisterous crime drama retains the kooky vibe it’s hoisted itself on for the past two years.

Everything about Claws is unapologetically loud, from the storylines to the costumes to the dialogue to, obviously, the on-brand nails. It doesn’t hold back from its unconventional premise: Five manicurists run a salon in the trashy city of Palmetto, Florida, that’s actually a front to launder money for the local drug lord………………….”
