SNL Alum Victoria Jackson Lashes Out at Glee

Glee- Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) kiss Victoria Jackson

Victoria Jackson, best-known for her 6-year stint on SNL, summed Glee’s “Original Song” episode up with one word: “Sickening!” She accused the producers of the show of “shoving the gay thing down our throats” and making a “mockery of Christians.”

“Everyone knows that two men on a wedding cake is a comedy skit, not an ‘alternate lifestyle’! There I said it!” Jackson’s comments appear in her column at WorldNetDaily.

Jackson was best-known on Saturday Night Live for her ditzy, blonde characters and high-pitched voice. In recent years, she has been politically active and strongly outspoken against liberal candidates and leftist media coverage. Perhaps ironically, she is a strong supporter of Fox News (which is owned by Fox Entertainment Group, which owns 20th Century Fox Television... which distributes and produces Glee).

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Cable, News,

VIDEO: Jon Stewart’s Message to FOX News

The ongoing war between Bernie Goldberg, FOX News contributor and frequent guest on O’Reilly Factor, and Jon Stewart, late-night Comedy Central variety show host, just got hilarious…though there’s probably zero chance that FOX News will find it so. It all started, according to Stewart, when he told FOX News to “go [expletive deleted] themselves” on his April 19 installment of .

Goldberg fired back during one of his visits to O’Reilly (Papa Bear to Stephen Colbert fans), calling a “funnyman” who only wants to crack jokes before an audience. “But if, clearly, you want to be a social commentator…you better find some guts,” Goldberg addressed his comments directly to Stewart.

On his April 20 show, Stewart had plenty to say in response to Bernie Goldberg - and by extension, everyone at FOX News.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, FOX, Family Guy, Video,

Apparently didn’t realize things done at “FOX” can be upsetting to some.

During Sunday night’s episode, Chris Griffin went on a date with someone Stewie referred to as “Down syndrome girl.” While that comment alone would have been enough to get Palin’s family talking, it’s a reveal Chris’ crush made during dinner that put the controversy over the top: “My dad’s an accountant and my mom is the former governor of Alaska.”

Not pleased with the obvious connection to her special needs son, Sarah - a FOX News contributor - felt compelled to respond on both her Facebook page and on The O’Reilly Factor.

Sarah Palin and Sean Hannity on FOX News

Could this be Sarah Palin’s way of prepping to replace Oprah?

VIDEO: Crazy Like a FOX? Ed Begley, Jr. Rants and Raves

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, Talk Shows, Cable, FOX, Video,

Living with Ed star (he’s been in the biz for years, obtaining guest spots on many different prime time dramas) lashed out at FOX News anchor Stu Varney recently, completely losing his cool on a very hot topic - global warming.

Telling the viewing audience “don’t get your news from me, people,” he demanded to know where Varney obtained his own information (yeah, FOX News, time to answer that question!) and shouted for a full two minutes before he managed to get Stu to yell back. Great stuff, this. At the end of the interview, Begley cries, “You’re a proper Brit - I actually like you!” It’s one of the craziest damn things you’ve ever seen - if you don’t often watch .

Fox News Guest Faints on Air

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Cable, Video,

Note to all the live talent out there: If someone tells you “I’m passing out,” that means they’re about to…pass out.

Earlier today on , a guest gave Glenn Beck a new topic to talk abut during his segment. Watch at approximately the 1:20 mark as David Buckner, a professor at Columbia University, announces his fate. (Then watch how long it takes the floor director to step in.)

Beck later told an apologetic Buckner: “I’m like ‘are you kidding me, the ratings will be through the roof!’”

Keeping Up With the Presidential Hopefuls

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Specials, Cable, News,

Presidential DebateGet your DVR ready, set up the Tivo, or pop a tape into that antiquated VCR – because if you don’t, you’re probably going to miss the next round of . The writers’ strike has changed everything about TV, and the democratic process is no exception. The Democratic debate scheduled for December 10 was canceled because the three front runners in that party (Clinton, Obama, Edwards) would not cross picket lines. But never fear, there’s one scheduled for December 13 that will go on as planned. On the Republican side, the debate takes place on December 12. But odd time slots mean you’re probably going to miss every bit of these two-hour arguments.

The December 12 debate (Republicans) and the December 13 debate (Democrats) will both air on the Fox News Channel (a partisan cable channel if ever there was one) at 2 pm. 2 pm? Yes, in the middle of the day (hence, the need for recording devices). The Democratic debates scheduled for December 17 and January 6 have been canceled, but these Presidential hopefuls will bump heads again on January 5, 21 and 31 (New Year’s Eve – what a great addition to any party). Meanwhile, the Republican hopefuls (including ) will argue their sides on January 5,6, 10 and 30.
