No return date has been set. “The Talk” canceled upcoming live shows on March 14, amid CBS’s internal review, launched late last week, of comments made by co-host Sharon Osbourne that led to an on-air heated debate about racism. The hiatus was originally planned to last just for this week. The review started after Osbourne defended her longtime friend Piers Morgan’s comments about Meghan Markle. Osbourne’s defense led to an emotional on-air conversation with co-host Sheryl Underwood, who called Morgan’s comments racist and sexist. Osbourne, in turn, expressed concern that she was being labeled a racist for defending Morgan. Also Read: 'The Talk' Ratings Down 27% From Last Season - Could Sharon Osbourne Flap Give It a Lift? Osbourne has since apologized for the episode, writing in a lengthy statement on Twitter, “I panicked, felt blindsided, got defensive & allowed my fear & horror of being accused of being racist take over.” “Please hear me when I say I do not condone racism, misogyny or bullying,” she wrote. “I should have been more specific about that in my tweet. I will always support freedom of speech, but now I see how I unintentionally didn’t make that clear distinction.” On Tuesday, Osbourne was accused by former “The Talk” co-host Leah Remini of using racist and homophobic slurs against her former co-hosts Julie Chen and Sara Gilbert. Osbourne has denied the accusations. Journalist Yashar Ali first reported the extension of the hiatus.

6 hours agoThe WrapMaher Pokes Fun at Old Film Content Warnings With Surprisingly Accurate Warnings of His Own (Video)For the mid-show gag on this week’s “Real Time,” Bill Maher drew inspiration from TCM’s decision to add new introductory segments to several classic films that address problematic elements like racism or sexism, and attempt to put those elements in historical context. (The films aren’t themselves being altered, and they’ll continue to air on TCM.) Maher thinks adding those content warnings is a bit silly, and to make that point he introduced content warnings of his own for several other classic films. And while the jokes were pretty amusing, we have to say the warnings Maher came up with are also extremely accurate. “So last week I was talking about Turner Classic Movies; I like Turner Classics, ok? I’d like Turner Classics… But of course in this new era, they had to reframe the classics. So they have to have a guy come on at the beginning,” Maher began, “and give a little speech about why movies that you used to just enjoy because you understood, you understood the times change, people change and mores change it’s called evolution, but now it’s called problematic… anyway.” Also Read: Bill Maher Delightfully Mocks Tucker Carlson's Fox News Rants About Race “And ‘Gone with the Wind’ is on the list. ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s,’ ‘My Fair Lady’… ‘My Fair Lady’ is too rough for them?” Maher continued, joking that the latter film “was too corny for me when I was ten. My father wanted me to go see it. I wouldn’t.” Maher added that these weren’t the only movies getting warnings, and then introduced several of his own. We’ll list them below for your convenience: “‘Sleeping Beauty': A prince kisses an unconscious woman without consent.” “‘The Wizard of Oz': A powerful woman of color is murdered by a rural white girl.” “‘Psycho': Inaccurately portrays the lives of the vast majority of transgender motel owners.” “‘Rosemary’s Baby': Fails to present Planned Parenthood as a viable option.” “‘Jaws': portrays white people as victims.” “‘The Graduate': Depicts a problematic age discrepancy that you can’t blame on the man.” “‘The Greatest Story Ever Told': Yes warning, portrays in a positive light of power imbalance between Mary, a Palestinian teenager and God, a more powerful man.” “And of course, ‘Braveheart': Warning, stars Mel Gibson.” Like we said, jokes aside, those are pretty accurate. Anyway, watch the clip above. Read original story Maher Pokes Fun at Old Film Content Warnings With Surprisingly Accurate Warnings of His Own (Video) At TheWrap
6 hours agoBill Maher Delightfully Mocks Tucker Carlson’s Fox News Rants About RaceDuring “New Rules” at the end of Friday’s “Real Time,” Bill Maher took a brief break from the segment’s usual rants to slip in a pretty hilarious insult against Fox News Host Tucker Carlson — by pretty much just accurately summing up Carlson’s whole schtick. The joke was that one of the “New Rules” topics was a matter of absolutely pointless trivia, but Maher acted as though it was an issue of epic importance. Here’s how it went down. “New rule: Stop using the phrase plain vanilla. Vanilla is a flavor just like any other, it comes from the vanilla bean,” Maher said, while a caption called “Critical Taste Theory” appeared onscreen. “You know what other flavor comes from a bean? Chocolate. But you don’t hear the mainstream media using the term plain chocolate — but plain vanilla that’s somehow okay, but what is isn’t okay?” Then Maher ended the gag by suddenly saying “I’m Tucker Carlson Good night,” as a photo of Carlson appeared on screen. Also Read: 'Daily Show' Introduces New Streaming Service Tucker+, Featuring Tucker Carlson's Reactions to Everything (Video) Of course, the whole thing was a parody of how Carlson tends to talk about race — vaguely and broadly, but in terms that critics, even within Fox News, argue convey racist sentiments, for example how he has continually spread falsehoods about the murder of George Floyd. Critics also note that Carlson has had multiple employees with ties to white nationalists, including the former head writer on his Fox News show, and several people at his old website, The Daily Caller. And John Oliver noted on a recent episode of “Last Week Tonight” that Carlson frequently says things that echo white supremacist talking points. Carlson has consistently denied he is racist. In any case, the hinge of Maher’s joke is that “Critical Taste Theory” is an obvious pun on the racial justice concept known as “Critical Race Theory,” something Carlson has frequently complained about. You can probably figure out what the vanilla/chocolate part of the joke referred to for yourself.
