Selena Gomez Responds to Critics of Her Netflix Series ’13 Reasons Why’: ‘It’s Not an Easy Subject’
13 Reasons Why may be Selena Gomez’s passion project, but not everyone is pleased with the new Netflix teen drama. The series, which is based off of Jay Asher’s 2007 novel by the same name, follows the story of Hannah, a teen who committed suicide and the people she blames for her death.
Many have criticized the show as glorifying suicide at a time when mental health awareness is so prominent in society. In addition to fan reactions, star Paris Jackson called the series an “extremely triggering thing to watch,” and urged her followers not to watch it.
Gomez responded to those criticisms while speaking with the Associated Press this week. As an executive producer to the show, Gomez said that their goal was to reflect the dark, serious tone set by the book.

Will Ferrell's Dubya, West Wing's C.J. Roast Press During Samantha Bee's Alt-Correspondents' Dinner
When TBS’ Full Frontal announced its Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner event, the world did not yet know that President Donald Trump would be skipping the actual Correspondents’ Dinner. Nonetheless, the show went on as planned on Saturday, with Samantha Bee and surprise guests coming together to lampoon the Commander-in-Chief and to raise money for the Committee to Protect Journalists.
The broadcast began with a pre-taped cold open featuring Emmy winner Allison Janney, who reprised her role West Wing press secretary C.J. Cregg »
Samantha Bee Tackles Trump, CNN, in ‘Not the White House Correspondents Dinner’
Washington, D.C. – Samantha Bee was ready to make one thing clear: She appreciated journalists trying to find the truth and has little time for those trying to obscure it.
In a taped segment before the no-holds-barred comedienne launched her “Not The White House Correspondents Dinner” Saturday after at Dar Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C., an audience of about 2500 watched a sharp parody of a White House press conference – with Allison Janney, who played the press secretary C.J. Cregg on the drama “The West Wing,” reprising her role. When one reporter asked if Bee was a witch, Janney annihilated him with laser vision.
After she took the stage, Bee promised to treat reporters well. “At a later date, I will get Mexico to pay for your drinks,” she promised a crowd of reporters from organizations including the Committee to Protect Journalists, The New York Times and CNN. She praised reporters “for continuing ‘to fact check »

Strike Watch: How Hollywood Labor Strife Would Affect Your Favorite TV Shows
The WGA’s master contract with Hollywood’s major studios is set to expire at midnight on Monday. If no new agreement is in place, striking writers could be marching with picket signs the next morning — instead of writing TV shows.
A writers strike would not mean that all television would suddenly be thrust into reruns. But some effects would be immediate, and a lengthy walkout could have a huge impact across the dial.
Late-night, where writers’ rooms are open year-round, would be the first television sector affected. “The Tonight Show,” “The Late Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Conan,” and “The Daily Show” would go dark immediately — though they might not stay dark for long. David Letterman, whose Worldwide Pants production company owned “Late Show” and “Late Late Show” a decade ago — cut a separate deal with the WGA that allowed him and Craig Ferguson to return to the air during the 2007-08 strike with their writing »

Hasan Minhaj Doesn’t Hold Back on Trump Administration at Correspondents’ Dinner
Hosting the White House correspondents’ dinner has proven to be a pretty big deal in the careers of many comedians. It can be argue had Stephen Colbert failed when he did his that he wouldn’t be the host of the Late Show today. So when Hasan Minhaj was selected to do the 2017 White House Correspondents’ dinner, the pressure was on. How did he handle said pressure? By going right after Trump and his administration. Despite President Trump’s absence, White House Correspondents’ Dinner headliner, Hasan Minhaj, didn’t lay off the “liar-in-chief.” The correspondent for The Daily Show had the audience rolling

Morning After: Samantha Bee Shrugs Off Jake Tapper’s “Smug Liberal” Question
The morning after the first of what seems likely to be an annual comic event, Samantha Bee has no regrets. Dropping by CNN’s State of the Union for a chat with Jake Tapper, a happy Bee pretty much rolled her eyes at any notion of being a smug liberal. “How does it feel to be the face of the problem?” asked Tapper, who had appeared in a very funny taped bit on Bee’s Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner special last night. (Watch today’s video above). Tapper… »

In the last 2 days, 2 new trailers have come out for the movie. And now we have this really cool video called “Wonder Woman – A Symbol of Progress” that we’re sharing with you below. While I would love to say that a movie like Wonder Woman can market itself, it has nothing to do with the fact that it’s other superhero counterpart movies

That Time Snoop Bought a Nail Gun on The Wire
If you’ve never seen The Wire then you’re in for a real treat. It’s like discovering a brand new show that’s on television and you become completely addicted to it as you would any other show. I was like that with Breaking Bad. I never saw the show live, not once. Then I just binged watched the hell out of it a year after the show had completed and I was blown away. I highly recommend you do the same thing with The Wire. Many people who have watched it consider it to be one of their favorite shows of

Match Game Secrets Spilled: Pre-Game Drinking, Forbidden Doodles and More
It’s so cold on the set of Match Game (“How cold was it?”), my ____ had goosebumps.
The frighteningly frigid temperature of the show’s New York studio (almost balmy compared to how Letterman famously kept his Late Show digs) was but one of the discoveries made during TVLine’s (long-ago, pre-election) visit to the taping of what would be tonight’s episode, airing at 9/8c on ABC.
Having watched Match Game‘s many incarnations over the decades, I arrived with some non-fill-in-the-blank questions of my own, especially with regards to the modern, »

Guy Explains How Every Single Nickelback Song is Written
Have you ever noticed how some bands seem to play the same song over and over again? There might be a few chord changes and the lyrics are certainly altered but when you listen to it you’re thinking to yourself “haven’t these guys done this exact same song before?” For example, remember when Bon Jovi did “Blaze of Glory?” I couldn’t figure out if that or “Wanted Dead or Alive” was the same song or one was the extension of the other. It happens all the time in music. Sometimes you take a hit, tweak it a little and just
