The 69th Emmy Awards were well underway at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday evening where 27 awards recognizing excellence in primetime programming and individual achievement were presented by the likes of Anthony Anderson, Alec Baldwin, Carol Burnett, James Corden, Viola Davis, Edie Falco, Anna Faris, Jane Fonda, Allison Janney, Nicole Kidman, Melissa McCarthy, Seth Meyers, Jim Parsons, Lily Tomlin, and Reese Witherspoon.

Veep, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Big Little Lies were some of the night’s biggest winners during the ceremony, which was hosted by late-night host Stephen Colbert and featured plenty of Donald Trump jokes and a surprise appearance from former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer; a gag that promptly received plenty of backlash on social media.

‘Star Wars’ animated series ‘The Clone Wars’ to return via Disney’s upcoming streaming service

Published

The Clone Wars
LUCASFILM LTD.

During a San Diego Comic-Con panel celebrating the 10th anniversary of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which ran for five seasons on Cartoon Network, Lucasfilm animation chief Dave Filoni announced that the beloved animated series will be returning for a seventh season.

“It’s an anniversary. It’s 10 years. And you guys deserve something for being so great. A present, if you will,” Filoni told the crowd, who gave a standing ovation after the big reveal. “We got together and we thought, ‘If there is one thing we could give you, what would it be?’ So here you go.”

The Clone Wars will return with 12 all-new episodes on Disney’s upcoming streaming service, which we know will also feature several Star Wars series, according to Disney CEO Bob Iger, including a live-action series from writer and executive producer Jon Favreau.

Created by George Lucas, The Clone Wars first aired in 2008 and featured existing characters such as Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Padmé Amidala, while also introducing original fan-favorites like Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex. The series abruptly came to a halt in 2013.

Although Filoni did not announce an official release date for the show’s seventh season, it will likely debut sometime in 2019, which is when Disney’s streaming service is expected to launch. You can check out the newly released trailer and poster for Star Wars: The Clone Wars below.

Colbert, Fallon, O’Brien respond to criticism from Donald Trump in hilarious cold open sketch

Published

on

After Donald Trump took a jab at them at a South Carolina rally on Monday, three of late night television’s biggest hosts teamed up for a cold open sketch like no other that kicked off both The Late Show and The Tonight Show on Tuesday evening.

Stephen Colbert,  Jimmy Fallon, and Conan O’Brien united for the unique response to the president’s criticism, in which he referred to Colbert as a “lowlife,” Fallon as a “lost soul,” and Jimmy Kimmel as “terrible,” while adding that they are “not like talented people.”

We’re told Kimmel was invited to appear on the sketch, which features the late night hosts in a mock Skype conference call, but is on vacation this week and was unable to participate. O’Brien’s show likely would’ve aired the sketch as well, but is on hiatus for the entire week.

“I heard he said some pretty bad stuff about us,” Fallon says in the sketch. “I heard he said we’re all no-talent, lowlife lost souls.”

“That doesn’t sound like him,” Colbert replied. “That’s not right. That’s Conan.” Colbert then conferences O’Brien onto the call, who is in the middle of shaving his face and is facetiously unaware that Donald Trump, “the real estate guy who sells steaks,” is the president of the United States.

The sketch ends after Fallon and Colbert agree to go out to lunch at the Red Hen, the Lexington, Virginia restaurant which made headlines last week after they asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave. “Red Hen?” Fallon suggests. “Red Hen!” Colbert responds enthusiastically.
