VIDEO: SNL’s Take on the State of the Untion

Last week’s opened with Fred Armisen, who has enjoyed the honor many times this season. He reprised his role as President Barack Obama to deliver his own version of the State of the Union address.

Complete with real footage, the skit was hilarious, though Armisen’s impression is by no means definitive (or even very good). What makes this clip stellar is as Joe Biden. Just watch it to see.

Obama Addresses the Nation: The State of Our Union

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Specials, ABC, Cable, CBS, FOX, NBC, PBS, Video,

President Obama took over TV on Wednesday night to deliver his first State of the Union address, wisely scheduling his speech to occur after American Idol (which has a higher approval rating). As Vice President Joe Biden and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi arranged themselves in their special seats, First Lady stood poised with a large contingent of service professionals who were on hand to hear the speech. It was business as usual, but there was no hiding the charged atmosphere. Barack Obama’s first State of the Union has been a long-anticipated event…as is the change the country had hoped to see.

The President entered the room to a smattering of applause, smiling as he shook hands on his way up the aisle. Once he was finally in position, he handed copies of the speech to the other two highest-ranking political figures in our land - a speech which is also obtainable as a matter of public record. Keep reading to get all the highlights.

President Obama Spreads Hope in the Holiday Season

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Specials, ABC,

Description“I think we’ve got the best possible plan for Afghanistan,” told Oprah Winfrey - and all the rest of us - during his holiday special.

He admitted that “job growth has not happened” during his term, saying this was “the biggest burden” he’s currently facing. “We are on our way out of Iraq,” he told the talk show host.

Overall, the President gave himself a B-plus grade for his first year in office. Do you agree, or think he’s grading on a curve?

Tuesday Ratings: ABC was the Forgotten

Last night’s presidential address did little for ABC but a lot for NBC. Yesterday’s episode of The Biggest Loser gave its network a win in the demos. (An absent Jay Leno also helped in that matter.) Meanwhile, a post-DWTS ABC placed fourth in both the viewers and the demos.

The Forgotten's Christian Slater8pm

  • The presidential address (1.9/6 in 18-49) pulled in 10.2 million for CBS.
  • NBC’s political coverage (2.1/6) raised 8.1 million.
  • Approximately 7.5 million watched President Obama on ABC (1.7/5).
  • FOX (1.8/5) catered to 4.6 million.
  • (1.1/3) settled for 2.2 million.

VIDEO: President Obama Visits David Letterman

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Late Night, Talk Shows, CBS, Video,

Although he had already appeared on five different talk shows over the weekend, disclosed new information during his first Late Show visit as a sitting POTUS.

“First of all, I think it’s important to realize that I was actually black before the election,” the President clarified to America last night. The humorous comment - a response to the supposed presence of racism in the health care debate - was followed by shock. “Really!... How long have you been a black man?” David Letterman joked.

And while it was clear Obama had an agenda behind his appearance (he said he wanted to see the heart-shaped potato an audience member brought), the host presented his own “Top Ten Reasons President Obama Agreed To Appear On The Late Show.” You can read those after the jump.

FOX News Channel Commentators Completely Out of Control

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

Barack Obama has long been tainted with overtones of right-wing political agendas, often offering up their own slightly skewed viewpoint of political officials. Their commentators are often good for a laugh, but in recent months the channel has done everything possible to discredit President Barack Obama. It seems FOX News still can’t get over the fact that he won the election - despite their repeated “mistakes” of calling him “Osama” and all their attempts to deny that he was even born in the U.S.

made an appearance on Tuesday’s Fox & Friends to give his opinion: that the President is a racist. To be more clear, he stated that Obama has “a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.”

“The guy is, I believe, a racist,” said Beck.

This Week on TV (6/22-6/28)


(You can view TV Envy’s Programming Schedule here.)


MONDAY (6/22)
  • Jon & Kate Plus Eight (TLC, 9pm):  Jon & Kate make some life-changing decisions. Well, Kate technically made the decision; Jon just didn’t want to argue.
  • Charm School (VH1, 9pm):  Season premiere. “Former contestants from VH1 reality shows work for charity (and a chance to win $100,000).” No good deed comes without incentives.
  • Make It or Break It (ABC Family, 9pm):  Series premiere. “In this drama focusing on the lives of teen gymnasts who strive to make it to the Olympics, new girl Emily Kmetko begins training alongside veterans who are both impressed with and threatened by her.” This could bring a whole new definition to the term “punch front.”
  • Run’s House (MTV, 10pm):  “The family rallies around JoJo after he’s charged with marijuana possession.” This whole time they had a connection within the home.

Wednesday Ratings: Country Experiencing Obama Fatigue

Looks like President Obama wasn’t what viewers had in mind for sweeps. Last night’s umpteenth press conference was seen by 29% less people than the March 24th version. Although FOX was able to beat the other networks for its airing of Lie to Me, the strategic move was probably a moot point. American Idol would have given the network a win anyway.

Barack Obama8pm

  • (7.9 million, 2.4/7 in 18-49) did the same as last week.
  • NBC’s coverage of the presser (1.6/5) drew in 6.7 million.
  • ABC’s political hour (1.6/5) attracted 6.1 million.
  • Approximately 6 million watched the president on CBS (1.5/5).
  • (4 million, 1.8/6) remained steady.

FOX: No Room for Barack Obama on Schedule

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Specials, FOX, Gossip,

Barack Obama , President of the United States of America, is scheduled to address the nation on Wednesday. But don’t worry, FOX isn’t going to go changing their programming just on his account. If you’d rather watch Tim Roth, you can still catch Lie to Me in its regular time slot.

It’s a bold move, and it might be a bad one. Obama’s Wednesday news conference will celebrate his first one hundred days as President. It’s the third press conference he’s held while in office, and it will be aired by ABC, CBS and NBC, along with several cable networks.
