Abbi and Ilana are out voting, what about you? The Broad City queens just released a new video, “Russian,” aimed to remind you all to the jump out of bed and run – yes, RUN – to the polls. Of course, the skit isn’t quite that straightforward. It opens with Abbi quizzing Ilana on Russian phrases, which quickly escalate from “yes” to “would you like me to urinate on you strong man". Don’t worry, it’s all part of Ilana’s master plan to infiltrate Russia. Watch the video...
Megyn Kelly, following her latest display of racism, might be leaving NBC for good. The Megyn Kelly Today host didn’t appear on the network this morning, with an NBC News spokesperson saying that her show will be airing reruns this week. Sources close to NBC told CNN that it’s likely she won’t return back, but information about her departure and its timing are still getting figured out. Kelly got a lot of well-deserved backlash after she discussed—with an all-white panel—whether blackface was ever okay for Halloween. “What is racist?” she asked. “Because...
  Megyn Kelly is at it again: being racist, that is. During a Tuesday taping of her show “Megyn Kelly Today,” Kelly and a panel of three other white people, Melissa Rivers, Jenna Bush Hager, and Jacob Soboroff, discussed racial sensitivity with regard to Halloween costumes. It didn’t go well. “But what is racist?” asked Kelly before continuing, “because truly you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface at Halloween or a black person who puts on white face for...
Dinette, a webseries that premiered earlier this month on BRIC TV, is a perfect way to spend an hour of your time. The series revolves around a group of quirky women and nonbinary friends all trying to make it through the world in their own way—the only cis male characters are peripheral and appear briefly. The pace matches its primary setting well (relaxed and cozy, as if your best friends are sitting beside you at your favorite diner counter). One of the first lines is...

For Indigenous People’s Day last week, director Casey Gates, who runs the YouTube channel Lady Brain Films, collaborated with writer Kyla Garcia to clap back with the premiere of a new mini-series, Herstory 101. The first episode went public on October 8th and was appropriately titled “John Smith Was A F*ckboy." It delves into the famous "love" story of John Smith and Pocahontas, which Disney got very wrong. The series features Dagmar Rodriguez, who wanted to write rhymes depicting history from the female perspective. Rodriguez gives us...
Dracmorda (left) and Swanthula, aka the Boulet Brothers, are the evil masterminds behind Dragula: Search for the World’s Next Drag Supermonster. The competition show, now entering its third season, is based on three principles: filth, horror, and glamour, and it’s inspired by the pair’s long-running drag nights that have been thrilling audiences in L.A. and San Francisco for years. Available on YouTube, the show challenges contestants to combine their drag skills with gruesome special effects, and punishments for losing a challenge range from being buried...
Amy Sherman-Palladino won both the comedy writing and directing awards at this year’s Emmy Awards for the pilot episode of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, reports Variety. She is the first woman to win both awards in the 70-year history of the Emmys, as well as the first person to ever win both awards in the same year. As a long-time super-fan of her beloved show Gilmore Girls, I believe she deeply deserved those awards. In my humble and unbiased opinion, Gilmore Girls is one of the smartest,...

Growing up, I was afraid of everything. And to this day, there are still fears that permeate my skin like needles with ink. The fear of driving on the highway, the fear of moving out of state, the fear of failing are all still there. As I look back on the exhausting 27 years of my life, I am thoroughly disappointed in myself. I have allowed all my fears to rule over me, and I have become someone I don’t believe I was meant to...

Here are the highlights we're still talking: Image via NBC 1. Black Actors Make History Tiffany Haddish, Ron Cephas Jones, Samira Wiley, and Katt Williams snag the creative Emmys for their respective roles–and make history. This...
