Why the Night King won’t be at the Battle of Winterfell on ‘Game of Thrones’

TwitterFacebook

The battle plans are drawn, dragonglass weapons forged, and the dead’s arrival at last signaled by three horn blasts in the dark night.

But something is missing. Or rather someone — horned, blue-eyed, and winged.

Ever since fans first got wind of a massive Battle in Winterfell, they’ve been questioning the seeming inevitability of an epic fight with the Night King. Now what began as pure speculation has crystallized into the most popular and logical twist for next week’s Episode 3 of Season 8.

The Night King won’t be at the Battle of Winterfell. Instead of doing what everyone expects of him, his army will take down Winterfell as a distraction as he focuses on the other target, King’s Landing. Read more…

Fantastic Voyage 2019 Day 6: 70’s Night Was A Blast From The Past

If you made it to the 6 a.m. session of Afro Aqua Aerobics, you are an amazing soul. For most of the rest of us, the day started much later when we finally peeled our eyes open. The rest of the morning’s activities included Socanomics CaribbeanDance Fitness, a seminar on the ins and outs of Medicare, an entrepreneurship panel, an empowerment panel on managing procrastination and a basketball tournament.

And all of that happened before 11 a.m. Interested in what music therapy could for you? There was a panel for that. Did you want to attend the Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival? The festival organizers held a panel.

If you didn’t get a chance to mingle with your favorite artists, some of whom were just casually hanging out before and after their shows, you could find them at the Autograph Signing Session. Myra J., SOS Band, Chrisette Michele and more were there, meeting and greeting fans.

If that wasn’t enough to do before noon, the Greek Day Party kicked off at noon on the ever-popular Lido pool deck. If you were one of the Divine 9 or one of any of the historically black fraternities and sororities, you represented with ALL of your best gear and some impromptu stepping took place as well. Although we know this ship is a grown folks’ party, some frats and sorors still have the dynamic moves held over from their college days.

This was the first of two days at sea motoring back from St. Thomas to Miami and it was a glorious day moving through the Caribbean. This was a great time to spend some time on the deck, preferably with your adult beverage of choice. Heading around the ship, you had multiple options for fun, relaxation or information. The popular African head wrap class was going on, as was a panel on how to prepare for retirement…even if you’re way behind. And the plant-based diet class was among the most popular as people sought more information on how to improve their health via a more holistic diet.

Celebrity charades? Line dancing? It was all happening on the cruise, but one of the most popular of the day’s events was the Old School Games Happy Hour. If you remember Operation or love a good round of Connect Four, you’d have felt right at home. There were also, as you can figure whenever Black folks to be found, some spirited games of bid whist and spades.

If you were lucky enough, artist Frank Frazier was silk-screening T-shirts with a copy of one of his pieces and if you were in the line early, you got one to take home with you at no charge. That’s if you didn’t make it to the pool party on the Aft deck, which had the advantage of going on during a beautiful day along with some great music and good vibes. Imagine hosting a huge pool party where everyone brings nothing but good vibes and you have just some idea of how it went down.

As the evening went on, you had several chances to enjoy yourself before the big concerts and the night’s most highly anticipated event – 70’s Night. The Practice Team, an affinity group of cruisers who link up on each year’s cruise, some of whom who have been coming since the very first one in 1999, hosted a meet and greet while Chris Paul and Huggy Lowdown hosted a “Never Have I Ever” Happy Hour.

The Celebrity Chef Takeover continued so diners headed to the restaurant to enjoy a specially curated menu from a stellar group of celebrity chefs including TV One and The Food Network’s Chef Jernard. You were going to need to get your nutrition before you headed out, because as it was the night before the last night, what was the point of going to bed? (Unless you had a cruise boo – who was hopefully, also who you got on the ship with).

Which show to see? Well, if you had the night’s tickets for Fantasia and Chrisette Michele, that’s where you were heading. It was the second night for the sangin’ duo but you would have never known. Chrisette, who was on the ship with her parents, acknowledged the love she felt from the crowd and even as she made her way around the ship. Fantasia never makes it through a show with her shoes on (she may as well come out barefoot at this point, like Sheila E., does) so those were kicked off early. She told the crowd it was the last night on the shop so we was ‘fin to get rowdy and they better be ready to get rowdy with her.

Not your choice in music? No problem. Maxi Priest was on the Lido pool deck performing his own big hit “Close to You” as well as selections from a variety of genres including songs by The Temptations, Michael Jackson and the Black-Eyed Peas. If you wanted to relive your club days, whether you hung at New York’s Paradise Garage or any dance music club in the 80’s, you were able to do so.  Strafe of  “Set It Off,” James “D Train” Williams, who you know from “Keep On” and dance music stalwarts took the entire room back to all the good times  and good music in the nation’s hottest clubs of the day.

Natural Change and the Ernest Walker Band kept their audiences vibing with their mix of soul, funk R&B and jazz. Our hats off to them for playing and holding it down every night of the cruise.

And if you think the “Gotta Have House” artists threw it back to the 80’s you ain’t seen nothing yet. It was 70’s Night on The Fantastic Voyage and let me tell you, people showed the hell out. Where do y’all find platforms with goldfish in the heels in 2019? We need to know. It was a true Playa’s Ball as several pimps were in all their finery but the realm of creativity was unsurpassed. How about Shaggy, Velma and Daphne from Scooby Do?

What about the Pink Ladies from “Grease?” But we have to give our greatest respect to the TJMS Crew starring Tom Joyner as Sir Nose from Parliament/Funkadelic, Sybil Wilkes as Minnie Riperton, Guy Torry as James Brown, Damon Williams as several eras of Prince, judging from the outfit, and Kym Whitley as Dolly Parton. Kudos to all for the commitment. Josie and the Pussycats, two different version of Ike and Tina Turner and Hugh Hefner and his Playboy Bunnies. Yes, people, you went there.

If you had energy to party in those platform heels, we once again have to salute you. And if you made it to the War show at 2 a.m. well, you have our admiration. We hear it was groovy, a stone cold blast from the past. But we had to put our heads on our pillow so we could recharge for the last (tears!) night of the Fantastic Voyage.

ENTERTAINMENT UPDATE:

Warner Bros’ File Copyright Claim Against Trump Tweet, Has ‘Dark Night’ Music Removed

Late on Tuesday night, Warner Bros.’ Pictures were forced to file a copyright infringement complaint against President Donald Trump and The White House due to their most recent controversial tweet. The two-minute 2020 re-election campaign video, which has since been taken down by Twitter after the complaint was filed, used music from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises without the film studios consent.

 

The very strange video, which used the composer Hans Zimmer’s “Why Do We Fall” from the 2012 film, also used the same font from the movie, but portrayed a very different message. The text, which appears to be have been altered from another quote, said: “First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they call you a racist. Donald J. Trump. Your vote. Proved them all wrong. Trump: The Great Victory. 2020.”

The trailer-like video showed footage of Donald Trump from various rallies and events around the country, along with people who Trump would consider villains in his own superhero story, such as former President Barack Obama, his previous Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton, and comedians Rosie O’Donnell and Amy Schumer.

The video also highlighted Trump’s meetings with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and Brazil’s recently elected President Jair Bolsonaro.

After BuzzFeed News first reported that the music was used without approval, Warner Bros. took action and quickly filled a copyright claim. Last night a spokesperson from Warner Bros. said in a statement: “The use of Warner Bros.’ score from ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in the campaign video was unauthorized. We are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed.”

The quick action by Warner. Bros led to Twitter removing the video after only a couple of hours, as it was deemed to have breached the social networks own copyright policies. However, this didn’t stop the video being viewed almost 1.8 million times.

This isn’t the first time that Trump has gotten into trouble for using cultural material without approval. Last year, Trump tweeted a meme based on the Game of Thrones tagline “Winter is Coming”, which said “Sanctions are Coming”, much to HBO’s displeasure.

Previously, Twitter also took steps to remove another one of Donald Trump’s tweets due to copyright infringement. Earlier this year his official Twitter account used the band R.E.M.’s most famous tracks “Everybody Hurts” in a promotional, which was taken down after the band complained to Twitter.

As the 2020 presidential race already begins to hot up, we’re sure this won’t be the last of Trump’s tweets that causes some level of controversy.

‘Game of Thrones’ Cast Members Hound Kit Harington for Season 8 Spoilers on ‘Saturday Night Live’

It’s been the better part of a decade, and everyone really, really wants to know how Game of Thrones ends.

That was the sentiment expressed in last night’s Saturday Night Live opening monologue, when host Kit Harington, known for playing Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, was flooded with questions about how the long-running fantasy show will end.

HBO’s Game of Thrones launches into its final season on Sunday, April 14, and series’ ending has been subject to nearly endless debate by fans.

Harington’s SNL monologue started out like any other, with the 32-year-old actor delivering jokes about the New York Yankees and his own spotty acting career. Then he was forced to fend off a series of questions about the popular show’s ending — many from his own fellow cast members.

“Could you just give us a general sense… of how it ends?” asked Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones.

“Emilia, you’re in the show,” Harington responded. “You know already.”

“Well yeah, but, you know, I forgot,” she said. “It’s been so damn long since the last season. Plus a lot of my scenes are talking to a dragon, which is just a tennis ball on a green pole.”

Watch the full opening monologue here:

Ben Stiller and Bill Hader Help Spoof the Michael Cohen Hearing on Saturday Night Live

Ben Stiller and Bill Hader returned to Saturday Night Live this weekend to make fun of Michael Cohen’s Feb. 27 sworn testimony before Congress about President Donald Trump’s conduct.

Actor and comedian Stiller reprised the part of Cohen, the President’s former personal lawyer who is slated to be sent to prison for lying to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

“Thank you for inviting me here today to correct the record under oath. Of course, the first time I testified was also under oath,” said Stiller-as-Cohen. “This time, I like really mean it.”

Stiller went on to take questions from SNL cast members playing various members of Congress.

Among these was former-cast member Hader as Rep. Jim Jordan, the ranking GOP member on the House Oversight Committee.

“Mr. Chairman, you’re right that I’m angry,” Hader said. “I’m angry that I have to sit here through this two-bit dirtbag flea circus! I’m so angry that I couldn’t even wear a jacket today!”

Kenan Thompson, playing House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, offered Cohen one last chance to speak.

“Yes, your honor,” Stiller said. “Maybe I’m not a good person. Maybe I’m a liar. Maybe I’m a fool. Maybe I’ve ruined hundreds of people’s lives.”

“I’m sorry, is there a ‘but’ coming?” Thompson interjected.

“No there isn’t, thank you,” Stiller said.

The best places to see the night sky

ADVERTISEMENT


Thanks to light pollution that’s evident in most residential areas, it has become nearly impossible to get a good view of the night sky. Man-made lights have made dark skies a thing of the past. Stars and other celestial features can only be observed in a dark sky. This is why finding spots with completely dark skies has become vital to enthusiastic stargazers and those interested in astronomy.
Luckily, there are still plenty of places that experience totally dark skies that are clear enough to display the wonders of the heavens. The list below will look at some of the places that offer the best views of the night sky.

1. Tuscany, Italy

Let’s start with Tuscany, which features prominently in the history of astronomical advancements in the world. Back in the 17th century, this is where famous astronomer Galileo Galilei developed his first telescope and conducted studies of the skies. To date, it remains a site for great views of the night sky and is a favorite among stargazers. Many astronomers also find the Tuscany hills very useful as there are observatories and equipment there. Exquisite sights to see in the Tuscany night sky include the Milky Way, the moon’s craters, and Jupiter’s moons.

2. Atacama Desert, Chile

The extremely dry conditions of the Atacama desert in Chile, coupled with its nearly non-existent cloud cover and isolation from cities and towns which keeps any kind of light pollution at bay, add up to make it a great place to see the night sky. It presents a clear and dark night sky that gives clarity that is rarely found anywhere else. The desert itself is a plateau with an elevation of 16,400 ft above sea level. This brings about the best vantage point of the night sky found in the southern hemisphere. There’s a high tech observatory situated here for space study, allowing scientists to make detailed observations of the cosmos. The fact that scientists find it very useful is an indication that it’s an ideal place to see an extraordinary night sky.

3. Mauna Kea, Hawaii

Hawaii’s many volcanoes offer great vantage points of the night sky. Mauna Kea is the best of them as is evident by the many astronomical observation sites set up on its peaks. Visitors here even enjoy the privilege of being provided with telescopes to get a better, closer look at the night sky. Many discoveries in astronomy have been made from observations made on Mauna Kea, so there’s definitely a lot to see here.

4. Death Valley, California

Death Valley National Park in California is one of the best and most popular night sky viewing places found in the US. Sights to see here include meteor showers, the expansive Milky Way, and even the rare lunar eclipse. It’s a popular destination for night-sky tourists, having been designated as the largest dark sky reserve in the United States by the International Dark Sky Association. The Las Vegas Astronomical Society also throws a Star Party at the site yearly, attracting a lot of night sky enthusiasts.

In the great Chris wars of our time, as Hemsworth, Evans, Pratt, and Pine watch in politely-stifled alarm as the internet relitigates which of them is the “best” every other month in perpetuity, one false move can send a man tumbling down the ranks. One minute, a chiseled blond blockbuster god is riding the high of playing a Parks and Rec goofball, a guardian of the galaxy, and the Lego Movie’s Emmet Brickowski, for instance, and the next he’s responsible for luring us toward disaster with a Passengers or—I’m sorry—a Jurassic World.

It’s a fickle game. And Pine has been playing it well. In the last two-and-a-half years, the only Chris who can sing can also boast (if he were so inclined to boast, which he probably isn’t, since he also seems like the nicest Chris next to Chris Evans) a near-sterling record of roles in recommendable hits. Hot bank robber. Superhero boyfriend. Science dad. Spider-Man. He could do no wrong.

Patty Jenkins and Chris Pine’s I Am the Night Is a Retro Noir Thriller With Nothing New to Say

Notorious cold cases tend to splinter into competing narratives, each containing fragments of an elusive truth—and few have elicited theories as odd as those that surround the lurid 1947 murder of 22-year-old Elizabeth Short, a.k.a. the Black Dahlia, in Los Angeles. Orson Welles, Woody Guthrie, mob boss Bugsy Siegel and LA Times publisher Norman Chandler were all floated as suspects at some point. New books still appear every few years, offering novel takes on the picked-over evidence.

One of the saddest and strangest of these tales, Fauna Hodel’s memoir One Day She’ll Darken, is the inspiration for TNT’s six-episode miniseries I Am the Night, which premieres on Jan. 28. Raised outside Reno, Nev. as Patricia Ann Greenway—a poor, light-skinned biracial girl with a black single mom—Hodel learned as a teen in the mid-1960s that her birth mother was really Tamar Hodel, a young woman from a prominent white Los Angeles family. Writer Sam Sheridan introduces 16-year-old Fauna (India Eisley from The Secret Life of the American Teenager) just before this discovery, when she’s simply trying survive the Civil Rights era as a racial outcast with a strict, alcoholic parent (Girlfriends’ Golden Brooks). We know she’s desperate to fit in because the show’s unsubtle script contrives to let her say so in the opening scene: “I just wanna be normal!”

After stumbling upon her birth certificate and tracking down her grandfather, gynecologist George Hodel (an appropriately creepy Jefferson Mays), Fauna’s search for an identity brings her to L.A. That’s where, following a few episodes’ worth of unnecessary suspense, her quest collides with that of Chris Pine’s hardboiled hero Jay Singletary, a dissipated tabloid crime journalist who got PTSD in Korea after bungling a prestigious LA Times gig in the late ’40s. (“Some stories you can’t tell,” his editor informs a cub reporter, by way of explaining Jay’s downfall. “Some stories will eat you alive.”) That debacle put him on the trail of George, an art connoisseur with friends in high places and possible ties to the Black Dahlia. Like Fauna, Jay is chasing a buried truth that only Tamar can help him unearth. Too bad Tamar is nowhere to be found.

Though it takes place half a century ago, I Am the Night—with its true-crime hook, interest in racial identity and fixation on violence against women—is a story made for the present. And it’s gratifying to see Wonder Woman filmmaker Patty Jenkins, who directed three episodes, reunite with Pine for a TV project that leaves superheroes behind. Every scene looks gorgeous: Jenkins’ neo-noir LA comes alive in neon-lit nightscapes, while the muted hues of Fauna’s hometown recall Norman Rockwell’s less idyllic works. A proto-psychedelic art happening, with bodies writhing behind screens, makes a beguiling set piece. Pine and Brooks have hammy moments, but for the most part, their big performances feel appropriate to the retro context.

If only the writing played to these strengths. True story or not, I Am the Night too often resembles an oversimplified version of the 1974 classic Chinatown, another California noir about abuse of power that parallels family dysfunction with its institutional equivalent. I’ve never been great at predicting plot twists, but I saw many of Sheridan’s coming a few episodes away. And despite dialogue that can be transparent enough to make you suspect someone spiked their coffee with truth serum, the characters are inconsistent. Fauna is steely in one scene and timid in the next. Jay alternates between acts of death-defying heroism and moments of utter helplessness—fluctuations that seem governed more by plot needs than by his past trauma.

The pacing is off, too. Early episodes get bogged down in exposition and digressions. (A lingering flashback to one of George’s bacchanals, paired with a reading from Edgar Allen Poe’s poem “A Dream Within a Dream,” had me groaning out loud.) Later installments move too quickly to devote adequate time to the ideas about race, gender, art and personal morality raised at the beginning. By the finale, the show isn’t depicting George’s fixation on women’s suffering so much as recreating it in gratuitous detail. This shift doesn’t just rob the story of thematic depth; it renders it impossible to draw a line between the exploitation I Am the Night depicts and the exploitation it practices.

Would You Give Up Your Job for a Night With Michelle Obama? This Mayor Did

It’s understandable to want to see former first lady Michelle Obama in the flesh because she is just that fantastic. But you might not want to go about doing so they way this former Texas mayor and her associate did.

Lyndia Thomas, the mayor of Forest Hills, Texas, and her pro-tem mayor (defined by Chron as “deputy mayor pro tem, assumes mayoral duties in the event of a mayor’s absence due to death, physical incapacity, impeachment or resignation”), Beckie Duncan Hayes quit their posts after accusations of misusing city funds to pay for tickets to see Michelle Obama.

According to The Daily Mail, the duo expensed two $ 545 tickets to see Mrs. Obama on her Becoming book tour—and were reimbursed with money from the city’s public relations fund.

Rather than being ousted from their positions by that city’s council, the two resigned. Hayes later paid back the money.

The Daily Mail reported: “I will not leave my fate in the hands of other individuals,’ Hayes told WWFA following her resignation. I am a woman of integrity, and the allegations, they have no substance. They are false.”

“We don’t get a salary, but we are entitled to be reimbursed for our expenses,” said Thomas according to the report. “We are not trying to hide anything,” she continued.

ABC News reports that the two women say “they’re being targeted for political reasons, and they both said they will plan to run for city council again. The next election is in May.”

The Forest Hills city website now shows Clara Faulkner as the Deputy Mayor Pro Tem.

M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Glass’ Is No. 1 With $40.6m Debut

(Universal Pictures via AP)

NEW YORK (AP) — M. Night Shyamalan scored his fifth No. 1 movie as the director’s “Glass,” while not quite the blockbuster some expected, nevertheless dominated Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend at the box office with $ 40.6 million in ticket sales according to studio estimates Sunday.

Universal Pictures predicted that “Glass” will make about $ 47 million over the four-day holiday weekend. Some industry forecasts had gone as high as $ 75 million over four days. But poor reviews took some of the momentum away from “Glass,” Shyamalan’s final entry in a trilogy begun with 2000’s “Unbreakable” and followed up with 2017’s “Split.”

Shyamalan’s film registered a 35 percent “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Audiences also gave it a mediocre B Cinema Score.

Yet the result still proved the renewed draw of Shyamalan, the “Sixth Sense” filmmaker synonymous with supernatural thrillers and unpredictable plot twists. “Split,” which greatly overshot expectations with a $ 40 million opening and $ 278.5 million worldwide, signaled Shyamalan’s return as a box-office force, now teamed up with horror factory Blumhouse Productions. Shyamalan, himself, put up the film’s approximately $ 20 million budget.

Jim Orr, president of domestic distribution for Universal, said any forecasts beyond how “Glass” performed were out of whack with the studio’s own expectations. Orr granted that better reviews might have meant a larger return and that the winter storm across the Midwest and Northeast may have dampened results.

But he said Universal was thrilled with the results. The four-day total ranks “Glass” as the third best MLK weekend openings ever, behind only “American Sniper” ($ 107.2 million) and “Ride Along” ($ 48.6 million). “Glass” also picked up $ 48.5 million overseas, where Disney had distribution rights.

“This came in at or above any reasonable industry expectations,” said Orr.

Last week’s top film, Kevin Hart’s “The Upside,” held especially well in its second weekend, sliding only 23 percent with $ 15.7 million. STX Entertainment estimated it will take $ 19.5 million over the four-day period, offering further proof that Hart’s fallout as Oscar host over past homophobic tweets hasn’t hurt his box office appeal.

But the weekend’s biggest surprise was the Japanese anime film “Dragon Ball Super: Broly,” which earned an estimated $ 8.7 million on the weekend from just 1,250 North American theaters, according to Comscore, and $ 19.5 million since opening Wednesday. (It grossed more than $ 7 million just on opening day.) The Funimation Films release, an animated martial arts fantasy, is the 20th film in the “Dragon Ball” franchise.

The result for “Dragon Ball Super: Broly” caught Hollywood off guard, prompting many to wonder: Just what is Dragon Ball? And who is Broly? (A nutty anime series created by Akira Toriyama, and the film’s warrior antagonist, respectively.)

“The enthusiasm for this movie was certainly reflected in these much bigger than expected numbers for a title that I don’t think anyone was that aware of, other than the true fans,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for Comscore. “If you ask the average moviegoer if they’ve ever heard of ‘Dragon Ball Super: Broly,’ they’d have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about.”

Shyamalan and Broly could do only so much for the overall marketplace. Other studios held back new wide releases to avoid going head-to-head with “Glass.” The box office was down 18.4 percent from the same weekend last year when “Jumanji: Welcome the Jungle” was still packing theaters, according to Comscore.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Comscore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

1. “Glass,” $ 40.6 million ($ 48.5 million international).

2. “The Upside,” $ 15.7 million.

3. “Aquaman,” $ 10.3 million ($ 14.3 million international).

4. “Dragon Ball Super: Broly,” $ 8.7 million ($ 5.3 million international).

5. “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” $ 7.3 million.

6. “A Dog’s Way Home,” $ 7.1 million ($ 2.8 million international).

7. “Escape Room,” $ 5.3 million ($ 9.5 million international).

8. “Mary Poppins,” $ 5.2 million ($ 6 million international).

9. “Bumblebee,” $ 4.7 million ($ 20.9 million international).

10. “On the Basis of Sex,” $ 4 million.

UFC Fight Night Broklyn undercard recap

BROOKLYN — A multitude of undercard fights with major implications are taking place before UFC Fight Night Brooklyn’s main event between Henry Cejudo and TJ Dillashaw on Saturday at the Barclays Center. We recap all the action here as it goes down.

M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Glass’ Is a Big Middle Finger to His Superhero Fans

Jessica Kourkounis/Universal Pictures

I stumbled out of Glass, the third film in the M. Night Shyamalan superhero trilogy that began with Unbreakable, suspicious that I’d just been punked. The movie’s final act, a spectacular implosion of incoherent twists and turns that hijack a functional thriller and drive it off a cliff—playing off the wreckage like a triumph, no less—felt like it had to be a prank. A morbid extension, maybe, of the movie’s meta attempts to deconstruct the superhero-movie machine that has consumed pop culture in the 19 years since Unbreakable. (“Comic books are an obsession!” a character shrieks at one point, while another narrates superhero clichés aloud as they happen, with all the grandeur and insight of lines like, “The collection of main characters!”) A fake-out for sure, pointless but preferable to the confused mess I’d seen, to be unveiled as the ultimate “twist” before the real movie hit theaters today.

But denial is just the first stage of grief and I’ve since cycled through to acceptance. This whole movie, including its catastrophic ending, is real, and they’re charging real money to see it. People who loved Shyamalan’s sterling 2000 film Unbreakable, tantalized by the surprise revelation at the end of 2017’s Split that both films take place in the same universe, will show up to see reluctant hero David Dunn (Bruce Willis), his mastermind arch-nemesis Elijah Price aka Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), and the amalgam of two-dozen split personalities known as the Horde (James McAvoy) together onscreen for the first (and last) time. Many will leave disgruntled, others bamboozled, eye-twitching and stupefied like the institution-bound title character. I left a conspiracy theorist.

Glass only muddles the ideas Unbreakable and Split surfaced about modern myth-making, trauma, and our minds’ capacities to manifest miracles. It takes its characters nowhere new. (It actively regresses one or two, in fact, insulting them before bowing out.) Shyamalan’s wicked humor, his knack for conjuring wonder and dread from the mundane, his stubborn commitment to zigging where you want him to zag—it’s all here. None of it saves Glass. It can’t seem to decide whether it’s a “fuck you” or a love letter to superhero movies and their audiences. It gestures vaguely at both, satisfying as neither. It does pull off a shock that might have been admirable as a stone-cold statement about IP-driven movie-making, except it’s executed with the lethargy of a deflating balloon, and just as devoid of meaning.

How to Watch the Saints vs. Panthers ‘Monday Night Football’ Game Online for Free Tonight

NFL fans who want to watch the Saints vs. Panthers game on “Monday Night Football” for free tonight have several options for tuning in to this critical NFC South showdown.

While the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers TV broadcast is on ESPN, fans can still live stream “Monday Night Football” for free. All of the ways to watch the Saints vs. Panthers game online for free tonight are explained below.

But first, what about the Saints vs. Panthers matchup itself? Who is the favorite on “Monday Night Football” tonight?

Even though the 6-7 Carolina Panthers are playing at home at Bank of America Stadium, they are the underdogs. The New Orleans Saints, who are 11-2 and have already won the NFC South Division title, are 6.5-point favorites to beat their division rival Panthers. In fact, lately sports books say that the New Orleans Saints have the best odds of winning the Super Bowl in 2019.

But anything can happen in the NFL. Three other strong 2019 Super Bowl contenders — the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, and New England Patriots — lost their most recent games despite being favored to win.

Here’s all the info you need to watch the Saints vs. Panthers game — online or on TV — on “Monday Night Football” tonight.

What Time Does the Saints vs. Panthers Game Start Tonight?

“Monday Night Football” TV broadcasts, including the Panthers and Saints game tonight, are handled by ESPN. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET.

ESPN is a pay channel included in most satellite and cable TV bundles. If you have such a pay TV package, all you need to do to watch the Saints vs. Panthers on “Monday Night Football” is find ESPN on your TV.

If you don’t have cable, you can still live stream the Saints vs. Panthers for free — at least on your phone, if not another device like a laptop or smart TV.

How to Live Stream the Saints vs. Panthers Game for Free

To live stream “Monday Night Football” and other NFL games for free on your phone, download the newest version of either the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL app. These apps provide free live streams of many NFL games, including tonight’s Saints vs. Panthers game on “Monday Night Football.”

Exactly what NFL games can you live stream free with the NFL App or Yahoo Sports app? Fans get free live streams of national game broadcasts such as “Monday Night Football” (broadcasted on ESPN), “Thursday Night Football” (Fox and NFL Network), and “Sunday Night Football (NBC), in addition to whatever NFL games are being broadcasted on their local CBS and Fox stations every Sunday afternoon.

Unfortunately, fans who are using these apps are limited to free live streaming on a tiny screen. The apps only stream NFL games on smartphones — so you can’t use them to watch “Monday Night Football” online for free on a laptop, smart TV, or any other larger screen.

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” for Free Online on a Smart TV or Laptop

Consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service with ESPN if you want to watch the Saints vs. Panthers “Monday Night Football” game online for free tonight.

The streaming TV services Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include ESPN in certain packages. Prices for these streaming TV packages start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month, but new subscribers can check them out for free for about a week during free-trial periods.

Streaming TV services, for those who are unfamiliar, are similar to cable in that they bundle together dozens of pay channels for subscribers. The main difference with live streaming TV is that subscribers stream content on connected devices, rather than watching channels via TV. Streaming TV packages are generally cheaper, with fewer fees, than cable as well.

Which streaming TV service is best? Well, the amenities and included channels vary from provider to provider. Sling TV is the cheapest streaming TV service with ESPN. But Sling also has the fewest channels included in its basic package. Many other streaming TV services include broadcasts of local network TV — like ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox — in many parts of the country as well, which is something that is not yet available on Sling TV.

So it’s worth checking out all the fine print, and what channels are included (and not) with each streaming TV service before registering for a subscription. And if you sign up for a free trial and ultimately decide you do not want to become a paying subscriber, remember to cancel in time. If you don’t cancel before the free trial ends, you’ll be charged in full for the first month.

How to Watch NFL Games Online for Free Today, Including Rams vs. Bears on ‘Sunday Night Football’

The NFL games on TV today in week 14 of the 2018 season include exciting matchups like Patriots vs. Dolphins, Eagles vs. Cowboys, and Ravens vs. Chiefs, finishing up with a top-notch “Sunday Night Football” game: Rams vs. Bears.

The Los Angeles Rams and Chicago Bears are both leading their divisions — NFC West and NFC North, respectively — and either team could go far in the playoffs. In fact, the Rams, who are 11-1 and have the best record in the NFL, are now being given the best odds of winning the 2019 Super Bowl, scheduled for February 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

But there is plenty more football to be played before then, including a full roster of games on the NFL schedule today. Here’s a guide for how to watch today’s NFL games for free — online or on TV — around the country.

What Is the NFL Game Schedule Today for Sunday, December 9?

First off, football fans do not get to watch every NFL game for free today. NFL games are broadcast on the major networks, which are free, but fans are typically limited by which Sunday games are being aired locally in their region.

Everyone gets to watch the Rams vs. Bears “Sunday Night Football” game for free tonight, because it’s being broadcast nationally by NBC stations all over the country. Otherwise, fans will get to see a few (but not all) of the Sunday afternoon games for free that are airing on CBS and Fox.

Here’s the full NFL game schedule for Sunday, December 9, and what channels are broadcasting the games:

• New York Jets vs. Buffalo Bills, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• New York Giants vs. Washington Redskins, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Baltimore Ravens vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Atlanta Falcons vs. Green Bay Packers, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Carolina Panthers vs. Cleveland Browns, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Denver Broncos vs. San Francisco 49ers, 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS
• Cincinnati Bengals vs. Los Angeles Chargers, 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS
• Detroit Lions vs. Arizona Cardinals, 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox
• Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Oakland Raiders, 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox
• Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys, 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox
• Los Angeles Rams vs. Chicago Bears, 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC

Unless you have a special NFL subscription package (see below) that includes broadcasts of out-of-market games, you’ll be limited to watching only the games airing on your local CBS and Fox stations. In general, that means you’ll receive broadcasts of your local team’s games, in addition to a couple of other NFL games that the networks believe will interest fans.

You don’t need cable TV or another pay TV subscription to watch these NFL games. All you need is a TV connected to a digital antenna. You can buy a decent HDTV antenna for around $ 25. Once it’s connected to your TV, you’ll be able to watch free, unlimited broadcast of over-the-air networks like CBS, Fox, NBC, ABC, and PBS.

Note, however, that the exact list of channels you can watch for free with a digital antenna varies based on where you live and the strength and position of the antenna you have.

How to Live Stream NFL Games for Free on Your Phone

What if you want to watch NFL games online today — on a phone or other device? There are a few possibilities.

To live stream NFL games for free on your phone, simply download the latest version of the Yahoo Sports app or NFL App. Both of these mobile phone apps have free live streams of all the NFL games that are airing on your local CBS, Fox, and NBC stations. (They also have free live streams of “Monday Night Football,” which is broadcast on the pay channel ESPN.)

The Yahoo Sports and NFL apps are totally free. They are free to download, and the NFL game live streams are free as well. However, the live streams are available only on phones. You cannot use these apps to watch NFL games on a larger screen, such as a tablet, laptop, or smart TV.

How to Watch NFL Games Online for Free on a Big Screen

To watch NFL games online today on any screen you want, considering registering for a free trial of a streaming TV service such as Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, or YouTube TV. These live streaming TV services bundle together dozens of channels into subscriber packages, and in most of the country they include local broadcasts of major networks like CBS, Fox, and NBC.

Packages for these streaming TV services start at about $ 40 per month, but all are available free to new subscribers during trial periods that last about a week. To watch NFL games online for free today, then, you could register as a new subscriber to one of these streaming services — and afterward still have nearly a full week to check them out.

Just remember, that if you don’t want to become a paying subscriber, you must cancel before the free trial ends.

How to Watch Every NFL Game Today

All of the options above work if you’re trying to watch NFL games broadcast on your local channels on Sunday. But what if you want to watch out-of-market NFL games — i.e., games that aren’t airing on your local CBS or Fox stations?

If that’s the case, you’ll need access to a subscription package that includes out-of-market NFL game broadcasts. NFL Game Pass package is the cheapest option ($ 99.99 for the season), and new subscribers can sign up for a seven-day free trial. NFL Game Pass subscribers can watch (or stream) out-of-market NFL games, but games are available only after they have ended. In other words, you can’t watch games live with NFL Game Pass.

The upside of NFL Game Pass is that the service allows subscribers to watch condensed, commercial-free versions of the games, which can be a huge time saver.

The other main option for fans who hope to watch out-of-market NFL games is DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket. Packages start at $ 300 per season (on top of a pay TV subscription), and viewers get to watch all out-of-market NFL games every Sunday. Unfortunately, there is no free trial for NFL Sunday Ticket.

The “Monday Night Football” game tonight is being played at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, and the Vikings vs. Seahawks betting odds indicate that the home team Seahawks are 3-point favorites to win. The Seahawks are scoring an average of 26.6 points per game this season, compared to just under 23 points for the Vikings. The over-under in tonight’s game is 45.5 points.

“Monday Night Football” TV broadcasts, including the Vikings vs. Seahawks tonight, are handled by ESPN. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET.

If you have satellite or cable TV, you probably have ESPN included in your bundle of pay TV channels. All you have to do is find ESPN if you want to watch “Monday Night Football” on TV.

If you don’t have cable, there are still ways to watch the Seahawks vs. Vikings game online for free. Check out the options to live stream “Monday Night Football” for free below.

How to Live Stream the Vikings vs. Seahawks Game for Free

To live stream NFL games for free on your phone, use either the Yahoo Sports app and the NFL app. Either app provides free live streams of many NFL games, including “Monday Night Football,” even though the TV broadcast is on the pay channel ESPN.

In addition to matchups like tonight’s Vikings vs. Seahawks game, these apps let you live stream “Thursday Night Football” games (broadcast on Fox), “Sunday Night Football” (NBC), and all the NFL games normally broadcast on your local CBS and Fox stations on Sunday afternoons. While the apps are free to download and use, the live streams are available only on phones. So you can’t use them to watch NFL games on a larger screen, such as a laptop or smart TV.

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” for Free Online on a Smart TV

If you want to live stream the Vikings vs. Seahawks “Monday Night Football” game on a screen that’s larger than your phone, consider registering for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes ESPN in its packages.

The streaming TV services Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include ESPN in their basic packages. The costs of these packages start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month, but they’re available to new subscribers for free for about seven days.

So, to watch tonight’s Seahawks vs. Vikings game online for free, you could register for a new subscription and live stream the game during the free-trial period. Afterwards, you would have most of a week to check out the service. Each is a little different, with different bundles of pay channels, but they are all basically the online equivalent of the traditional cable TV package — only they tend to cost less per month, and have fewer surprise fees.

Sling TV is the cheapest streaming TV service that includes ESPN in packages. But Sling TV also has fewer channels than the other services. It’s worth taking a close look at all the fine print, and what’s included with each live streaming TV service, before registering for a subscription.

Also, remember: If you ultimately decide you don’t want to become a paying subscriber, be sure to cancel your streaming TV service before the free-trial period ends.

Like most “Thursday Night Football” games this season, the main TV broadcast for the Jaguars vs. Titans tonight is being handled by Fox, and the kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET. To watch “Thursday Night Football” on TV, simply find your local Fox station.

If you have cable TV or another pay TV service, it probably includes Fox and other broadcast networks in the package. If you don’t have cable and want to watch network TV, it’s well worth purchasing a digital antenna.

You can buy a decent digital antenna for about $ 25. Once it’s connected to your TV, you’ll be able to watch unlimited, over-the-air network TV for free in most of the country. Which channels you can watch with an antenna depend on where you live, but most people in the U.S. can tune in the local channels from all the major networks, including Fox.

How to Live Stream the Jaguars vs. Titans Game for Free

As we have reported earlier this season, fans can watch “Thursday Night Football” online for free — in addition to many other NFL games — on their phones. Here are the details on how to live stream NFL games, and what football games you can watch online for free, on your phone:

After downloading the latest versions of either the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL App, you’ll be able to live stream a host of games on your phone. Specifically, the Yahoo Sports app and NFL App let fans live stream games that are being broadcast locally in their region by networks like CBS and Fox, as well as all nationally broadcast primetime games. That includes “Sunday Night Football” on NBC, “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, and “Thursday Night Football” on the NFL Network and Fox.

What if you want to live stream the Jaguars vs. Titans “Thursday Night Football” game for free on a screen that’s larger than a phone?

Amazon Prime has a live stream of most “Thursday Night Football” games, including Jaguars vs. Titans tonight, on Prime Video. Amazon Prime members can simply log in to their accounts and go to Prime Video to watch the game on any device.

Amazon Prime membership, which includes free two-day shipping on most Amazon purchases in addition to free streaming video and music content, generally costs $ 119 per year or $ 12.99 per month. New subscribers can sign up for a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime, and it might not be a bad time to try out the service — considering that it’s the holiday shopping season and you may be making some online shopping purchases.

It is also possible to live stream “Thursday Night Football” for free by registering for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes local broadcast of Fox and other networks in its bundle of channels. The streaming TV services Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV include such broadcasts in most of the country, but coverage varies and you should inquire if Fox is part of the package before subscribing.

All of these live streaming TV services can be tested via free trials that last about a week. After that, the basic cost of a package starts at about $ 40 per month. If you don’t want to become a paying subscriber, remember to cancel before the free-trial period ends.

What channels are included with streaming TV services varies by provider. The streaming TV providers Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include ESPN in their basic packages.

Prices for these services start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month — Sling TV is the cheapest of the bunch — and all offer free trials that last about a week for new subscribers. Assuming you’re a new subscriber, you could register today with one of these live streaming TV services and watch “Monday Night Football” online for free on any device you like. You’d then have the rest of the week to try out the service and determine whether you want to become a paying subscriber.

If you don’t want to pay, you must remember to cancel before the free-trial period ends.

How to Watch Today’s NFL Games Online for Free, Including Vikings vs. Bears on ‘Sunday Night Football’

Cowboys vs. Falcons, Steelers vs. Jaguars, and Eagles vs. Saints are on the NFL game schedule today, which ends with a Vikings vs. Bears game on “Sunday Night Football” tonight.

What NFL games are on TV today? Well, the answer depends partly on where you live. All fans get to watch the Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears on “Sunday Night Football,” which is broadcast nationally on NBC. Other NFL games today are broadcast on CBS and Fox stations, though local channels choose to air the games that are likely to interest the regional fan base.

Here’s how to watch NFL games for free — online or on TV — on Sunday, November 18, including options for live streaming games on your phone and watching NFL games that aren’t being broadcast on your local stations.

What’s the NFL Game Schedule Today?

What NFL games are on TV today? Here’s the full NFL game schedule for Sunday, November 18:

• Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Dallas Cowboys vs. Atlanta Falcons, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New York Giants, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Houston Texans vs. Washington Redskins, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Tennessee Titans vs. Indianapolis Colts, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Carolina Panthers vs. Detroit Lions, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Denver Broncos vs. Los Angeles Chargers, 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS
• Oakland Raiders vs. Arizona Cardinals, 4:05 p.m. ET on Fox
• Philadelphia Eagles vs. New Orleans Saints, 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox
• Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears, 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC

Even if you don’t have cable, you should be able to watch the NFL games being broadcast locally in your area. All you need is a digital antenna, which costs about $ 25. Hook it up to your TV and in most of the country you’ll be able to tune in unlimited free broadcasts of major networks like CBS, Fox, NBC, ABC, and PBS — in hi-def no less.

How to Live Stream NFL Games Today for Free on Your Phone

If you are on the go on Sunday, or simply want to live stream NFL games on your phone for whatever reason, download the latest version of the Yahoo Sports app or NFL App. With either app, you get free live streams of many NFL games on your phone. Specially, the apps let you live stream all of the games broadcast locally in your area — your local team’s games will be among them — in addition to all nationally televised games like “Sunday Night Football” on NBC, “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, and “Thursday Night Football” on Fox.

The NFL live streams on these apps are available only on phones. They cannot be used for live streaming on a larger screen, like a laptop or connected TV. That’s a bummer, but there are other options if you want to watch NFL games online on a larger screen.

How to Watch NFL Games Online for Free on Any Screen

To watch NFL games online on a laptop, tablet, or any screen larger than a phone, consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service such as Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, or YouTube TV. Each of these services comes with dozens of pay channels, and in most of the country subscribers also get live streams of local broadcast channels, including CBS, Fox, and NBC.

These streaming TV package prices generally start at $ 40 per month, and all are available for free to new subscribers during trial periods that last about a week. So sports fans could sign up and stream NFL games today for free, and then still have the rest of the week to test out the service. Just remember to cancel before the free trial is over if you do not want to become a paying subscriber.

How to Watch Any NFL Game Today You Want

All of the options above let you watch only the games being broadcast on your local broadcast stations. If you want to watch NFL games airing only in other parts of the country — a.k.a. “out-of-market” games — then a digital antenna or basic cable or streaming package won’t cut it.

To watch out-of-market NFL games, you must get a special package like DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket. Prices start at $ 300 per season, and subscribers get to watch NFL games broadcast all over the country.

The cheaper way to watch out-of-market NFL games is NFL Game Pass. This package lets you watch (or stream) all NFL games after they’re over. The tradeoff to watching after everyone else knows the end result is that NFL Game Pass gives you the option to watch condensed, commercial-free versions of the games. As mentioned, the cost is cheaper than NFL Sunday Ticket: NFL Game Pass costs $ 99.99 for the 2018 NFL season, and new subscribers get a seven-day free trial.

How to Watch the Packers vs. Seahawks ‘Thursday Night Football’ Game Online for Free Tonight

The “Thursday Night Football” game tonight should be a great matchup: Packers vs. Seahawks.

The Green Bay Packers, led by one the NFL’s greatest-ever quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers, are 4-4-1 thus far in the 2018 season. The Seattle Seahawks, led by another Super Bowl-winning quarterback in Russell Wilson, have a similar record at 4-5. Both teams are very alive in the hunt to make the playoffs, so tonight’s “Thursday Night Football” game absolutely matters.

Who is the favorite in the Packers vs. Seahawks game tonight? Well, the official betting odds indicate that the Seahawks, playing their home stadium, CenturyLink Field, have a slight edge: Seattle is a 2.5-point favorite to beat Green Bay.

If you want to know how to watch the Packers vs. Seahawks “Thursday Night Football” game — online, or on regular TV — for free, we’ve got you covered. Here are all the options.

What Channel Is the Packers vs. Seahawks Game On?

Tonight’s Packers vs. Seahawks TV broadcast is being handled by Fox, like most “Thursday Night Football” games this season. To watch, simply find your local Fox station on TV.

Most satellite or cable TV subscriptions come with Fox, as well as other major broadcast networks like CBS, ABC, and NBC. If you don’t have cable, you can still watch “Thursday Night Football” in most of the country by connecting your TV to a digital antenna.

A basic digital antenna costs about $ 25 or less, and with it you can watch Fox and other over-the-air networks for free — assuming you live close enough to receive the local signal. What’s more, modern digital antennas offer viewing in hi-def. They’re well worth the minimal investment if you don’t want to pay a monthly cable bill.

How to Live Stream the Packers vs. Seahawks Game for Free

You’ve got several options to watch the Packers vs. Seahawks game online — and yes, you can live stream it for free.

First off, as we have reported earlier this season, you can live stream NFL games for free on your phone with two apps. Not every NFL game is available for a free live stream, but you can indeed use one of the apps to watch the Packers vs. Seahawks game online on Thursday night.

Here are the details on how to live stream NFL games on your phone:

After downloading the latest versions of either the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL App, you’ll be able to live stream a host of games on your phone. Specifically, the Yahoo Sports app and NFL App let fans live stream games that are being broadcast locally in their region by networks like CBS and Fox, as well as all nationally broadcast primetime games. That includes “Sunday Night Football” on NBC, “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, and “Thursday Night Football” on the NFL Network and Fox.

Unfortunately, these apps can only be used to live stream NFL games on a phone. You can’t watch games online on a larger screen, like a laptop, tablet, or connected TV, with these apps.

However, Amazon Prime members can live stream the Packers vs. Seahawks game tonight for free on any screen they want. Log in to your Prime account, and you’ll be able to watch “Thursday Night Football” on Amazon Video.

If you are not a Prime member, you could still watch the game and test out the service during a 30-day free trial if you’re a new subscriber. It’s probably not a bad time to sign up for a free Amazon Prime subscription: Members get free two-day shipping on most Amazon purchases, a perk that could come in handy during the winter holiday shopping season. After the free trial, Amazon Prime membership generally costs $ 119 per year or $ 12.99 per month.

Yet another option to live stream “Thursday Night Football” for free is available by way of a free trial of a streaming TV service such as Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, or YouTube TV. These services work similarly to cable, in that they bundle dozens of channels together for one monthly fee, and they include live streams of local channels like Fox, NBC, and ABC in most of the country.

These live streaming TV packages generally start at $ 40 to $ 45 per month, but free trials are available for new subscribers. So you could register and watch the Packers vs. Seahawks game for free tonight, and still have the rest of the week to try out the service before deciding if you want to pay. If you don’t, remember to cancel before the free trial period is over.

‘Saturday Night Live’: Pete Davidson Apologizes to Lt. Com. Dan Crenshaw — And Gets Roasted

In a rare conciliatory moment from the usually-irreverent Saturday Night Live, Pete Davidson apologized to Lt. Com. Dan Crenshaw on Weekend Update on Saturday.

Sitting next to Crenshaw, Davidson expressed regret for a widely-criticized joke he made last week about the former Navy SEAL and newly elected Republican House Representative.

“I mean this from the bottom of my heart,” Davidson said. “It was a poor choice of words. The man is a war hero and he deserves all the respect in the world.”

Last week on SNL’s Weekend Update, Davidson had mocked Crenshaw’s eyepatch, which he wears due to an injury he sustained in an I.E.D. explosion while serving in Afghanistan.

“You may be surprised to hear he’s a congressional candidate from Texas, and not a hitman in a porno movie,” Davidson said of Crenshaw.

He then added, “I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war or whatever. Whatever.”

Earlier in the week, Crenshaw did not seem too interested in an apology from Davidson or Saturday Night Live.

“They certainly crossed the line, but their apology won’t mean anything to me,” Crenshaw said on Fox & Friends Monday. “I think what they should do is maybe pull their money together and donate to some veterans charities out there who could really use some help.”

As well as appearing on the show last night, Crenshaw delivered a serious note on respect for veterans and national unity.

“We can remember what brings us together as a country and still see the good in each other,” Crenshaw said. “This is Veterans’ Day weekend, which means that it’s a good time for every American to connect with a veteran.”

He also got to offer a few barbs of his own against Davidson.

“He looks like a troll doll with a tapeworm,” Crenshaw said.

How to Watch the Titans vs. Cowboys ‘Monday Night Football’ Game Online for Free Tonight

The Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys play in the “Monday Night Football” game on November 5, with a kickoff scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET.

Who is the favorite to win in tonight’s Titans vs. Cowboys game? Both teams are currently 3-4, and the outcome of tonight’s matchup will give the winner a .500 record and increase their chances of making the playoffs, while the loser will stand at a sad 3-5. The Titans vs. Cowboys betting odds indicate that the Cowboys — playing at home at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, where they are undefeated thus far in the 2018 NFL season — are 6-point favorites to win.

All “Monday Night Football” games are broadcast on ESPN. It’s a pay channel, of course, included with most satellite and cable TV packages. If you have cable or another pay TV package, all you have to do to watch the Titans vs. Cowboys game is find ESPN.

If you don’t have cable, you can still watch “Monday Night Football” for free — online or on TV — and we’ve laid out the options below.

How to Live Stream the Titans vs. Cowboys for Free

If you are content to watch “Monday Night Football” on the screen on your phone, that’s simple enough to accomplish. Just download the newest version of the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL app and you’ll be able to live stream many NFL games for free this season. Specifically, fans can use the apps to live stream all of the Sunday NFL games broadcast locally on CBS and Fox where they live, plus the nationally televised matchups on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” and Fox’s “Thursday Night Football.

If you don’t have cable and still want to watch the Titans vs. Cowboys tonight for free, these apps provide the easiest way to tune in outside of heading over to your neighbor’s house or a local bar to catch the game. The one hiccup is that the apps only provide live streams to phones — and cannot be used for watching online on a tablet, laptop, or connected TV.

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” for Free Online

If you want to live stream the Cowboys vs. Titans game for free on a screen that’s larger than your smartphone, consider registering for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes ESPN in its bundle of channels.

Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include ESPN with their basic packages, and they all offer new subscribers free trials that last about a week. So, if you just wanted to live stream “Monday Night Football” tonight without paying for cable, you could register as a new subscriber and check out one of these services.

Basic streaming packages start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month, after the free trial period is over. If you don’t want to become a paying subscriber, be sure to remember to cancel before the free trial ends.

Which streaming TV service is best for cord-cutters? And which streaming TV service is best for NFL fans, and sports fans in general? Each service has a different roster of channels, so the answer depends on what you like to watch in your household. Fubo TV is a streaming TV service that’s marketed most heavily to sports fans, but it does not include ESPN in packages — so you can’t use it for live streaming “Monday Night Football.”

Our advice is to check out what channels and perks are included with each service, and then look closely at the price points. As mentioned, each service comes with a free trial, so you could certainly try out more than one and see which option works best for you and your budget.

Sunday Riley’s Good Genes vs. Drunk Elephant’s Sukari Babyfacial and Glycolic Night Serum

good genes vs drunk elephant glycolic night serum and babyfacialI haven’t tried every AHA/BHA/exfoliating acid product out there, but I’ve used some of the good ones that readers often talk about, and since the big beauty sales (and holiday gift sets!) are all coming up I thought it might be a good time to discuss the pros and cons of a few different products so that you can make an informed decision if you’re looking for a new exfoliating acid to add to your skincare regimen. Readers, have you used Sunday Riley’s Good Genes, or either of Drunk Elephant’s popular products? What other exfoliating acids or physical exfoliants are you a fan of?

Sunday Riley’s Good Genes

I got this one after I heard readers talking about the shocking effect that just a single use of the product can have. While I think that’s true, for me this is not an “everyday” product because it makes my skin a little too shiny, and I feel oily rather than youthful — it’s something I’d use one or two times a week. Pros to Good Genes: The time involved is very minimal (spread it on before you go to bed, wash your face in the morning), and the payout is pretty great — my skin looks more radiant and just generally has a healthy glow. I just ran out of the 0.5 oz bottle after using it solidly for almost 10 months (not sold separately, but you can usually find it as part of a gift set like this one), and for me, getting a smaller gift set (rather than a bigger product) is worth it because a) I feel like when you’re working with acids you want to pay attention to shelf life (I can’t find the info for Good Genes but for Drunk Elephant products they note the shelf life is one year after opening) and b) you get to try other products as well. Cons to Good Genes: Price — and, for some people, the smell. It doesn’t smell BAD to me, but it does have a distinct, maybe medicinal kind of smell. Another minor con for me: I typically alternate using my retinol product with a product like Good Genes. I’ve seen some things saying it’s OK if you wait 30 minutes between applications, but I never remember after 30 minutes have passed.

Cost: $ 105-$ 158 if purchased by itself (Sephora, Nordstrom, Anthropologie) — actually, this set (pictured at top) looks like it’s fabulous because you get the full size (1 fl oz) AND a bunch of other Sunday Riley products for $ 105; this value set at Nordstrom also looks great

Purpose: From Sephora’s website: “Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment is formulated with high potency, purified grade lactic acid that immediately exfoliates dull, pore-clogging dead skin cells, revealing smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin. Fine lines appear visually plumped while the skin looks more radiant. With continued use, the appearance of stubborn hyperpigmentation and the visible signs of aging are reduced for a healthier-looking complexion. Perfect for all skin types and all ages, this treatment is enhanced with licorice for brightening, Good Genes clarifies, smooths, and retexturizes for instant radiance.”

Kat’s Suggested Usage: 1-2x a week

Time: 30 seconds before bed — note that I’ve also seen that you can wear this during the day if you want to, but only with lots of sunscreen — I already wear lots of sunscreen and wouldn’t wear this product during the day, but that’s just me. I’ve also read that you can use Good Genes as a 20-minute mask if it’s too intense as an overnight treatment for your skin.

Drunk Elephant’s T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial

Sukari babyfacial reviewI heard readers singing the praises of this one, and was thrilled last year to find a Drunk Elephant value set at Sephora last year that had their T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial, T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, their vitamin C product and their Virgin Marula Facial Oil. (Just a minor note on facial oils like these — I have pretty dry skin, and I’m not a fan of facial oils like this one or Sunday Riley’s Luna Sleeping Oil — maybe in the dead of a cold winter I would want them, but right now they just feel way too heavy for my skin.) Babyfacial is a bit different than Good Genes in that it is DEFINITELY not a daily product — it’s a mask that stays on for 20 minutes before you rinse it off. I like both Baby Facial and Good Genes, and use both — but for me, the fact that this is a mask means I use it less, maybe two times a month. The payout is good (it’s stronger, so it’s going to be a bit more extreme than Good Genes), and I prefer the smell of Baby Facial to Good Genes, but I just don’t do it as often. For what it’s worth, on me the mask blends into my skin, although there’s a slight pink sheen to it — my kids have never noticed if I had it on. (Unlike the Hanacure mask!) Another pro: as we noted in our post on cruelty-free beauty products, Drunk Elephant products aren’t tested on animals.

Cost: $ 28-$ 80 (Sephora) — they actually offer a $ 28 mini version that comes with the Marula facial oil and for $ 28 I think it’s a great deal just for the Babyfacial product. My .5 fl oz size isn’t empty yet after 10 months of using it once ever 1-3 weeks.

Purpose: From the Sephora website: “A pro-quality AHA/BHA “facial” that resurfaces to reveal greater clarity, improved skin texture and tone and a more youthful radiance—think of it as an extra nudge for stubborn, dull skin.”

Kat’s Suggested Usage: 1x a week maybe, at most (I use it more like once every 1-3 weeks)

Time Required: 20 minutes

Drunk Elephant’s T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

glycolic night serum review vs good genes

Finally, Drunk Elephant’s T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum is worth discussing in this post also — whereas Babyfacial has 25% AHA and 2% BHA, the Glycolic Night Serum has 12% AHA and notes that it’s a  “BHA Blend.” This is noticeably a much gentler product than either Babyfacial or Good Genes — but while it’s acceptable for daily use, you don’t get the same instantaneous results that you do with Good Genes and Babyfacial. Pros: time involved is minimal, and you can apply it quickly before bed and sleep in it. But cons: Again, if you’ve got other products in your nighttime routine that you don’t like mixing (like retinols) or that you want to give a wide berth to, and not apply until each product has fully dried — then this one gets used less.

Cost: $ 90 for 1 oz (Sephora exclusive) (FWIW I still have lots left in my .5 fl oz mini after about 11 months of use)

Purpose: From Sephora: “A 12 percent AHA/BHA night serum that refines and resurfaces skin to reveal a smoother and more radiant complexion.”

Kat’s Suggested Usage: You can use this one daily — I tend to layer it into my nighttime routine if I want something gentler than Good Genes or Babyfacial.

Time Required: 20 seconds before bed (wash your face in the morning)

One more little note: I got a Lancer set that included The Method: Polish during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and like it as a physical exfoliant — I use it a ton more than I ever did my Clarisonic, which is languishing at the back of a drawer somewhere (I guess?) and it’s quick and easy. While I’m a big fan of the Lancer Radiance Awakening Mask I’m not sure I’d buy the Polish again, at least at these prices. (As part of the set I got the Caviar Lime Acid Peel which I keep forgetting about, and haven’t tried yet!)

Readers, how do you deal with dull skin — what products do you like? What are your favorites, and how often do you work them into your routine? If you’ve tried these products, what are your thoughts on Good Genes vs. Drunk Elephant?

The main problem is live streaming “Thursday Night Football” on one of these apps is that you can only watch the game on a phone. The apps do not allow you to live stream NFL games on a larger screen, such as a laptop, tablet, or connected TV.

How to Watch ‘Thursday Night Football’ Online for Free

Amazon Video, available strictly to Amazon Prime subscribers, also has a live stream of tonight’s Dolphins vs. Texans game. Amazon Prime members can simply log in to their account and head to Amazon Prime Video to watch the game online on any device they want.

Once the free trial is over, Amazon Prime members generally pay $ 119 per year or $ 12.99 per month for the service, which comes with perks like free two-day shipping on most Amazon purchases and unlimited streaming of certain music and video content.

Finally, you could also live stream the Dolphins vs. Texans game tonight for free by way of a free trial from a streaming TV service that includes Fox in its packages. In many parts of the country, the streaming TV services Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV include local broadcasts of channels like Fox, ABC, and PBS in their basic packages, alongside dozens of other channels. And they all offer free trials lasting about a week for new subscribers.

So, you could register and watch “Thursday Night Football” online for free tonight while testing out one of these services. Basic packages for these streaming services cost $ 40 to $ 45 per month, after the free trial period is over.

If you don’t want to become a paying subscriber for whatever reason, remember to cancel before the trial period ends.

How to Watch Tonight’s ‘Monday Night Football’ Giants vs. Falcons Game Online for Free

Tonight’s “Monday Night Football” game is the New York Giants vs. Atlanta Falcons. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET, and the NFL game is being broadcast on ESPN, although football fans have other options to view the match-up.

The Giants have one of the NFL’s most exciting players in rookie running back Saquon Barkley, but overall the team has struggled under head coach Pat Shurmur and veteran quarterback Eli Manning. The Giants are 1-5 so far in the 2018 NFL season, and are considered underdogs while on the road during “Monday Night Football.” The Giants vs. Falcons betting odds say that the 2-3 Falcons are 5.5-point favorites to win.

ESPN is a pay channel, of course, but NFL fans can watch the Giants vs. Falcons game tonight for free even if they don’t have cable. Here are the ways to watch “Monday Night Football” for free — online or on TV.

How to Live Stream the Giants vs. Falcons Game for Free

The arrival of the 2018 football season brought good news: a new option making it easy — and free — for fans to live stream NFL games on their phones.

Download the newest version of the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL app and you can live stream all of the Sunday NFL games being broadcast in your region on CBS, Fox, and NBC (including “Sunday Night Football”), as well as ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” and Fox and the NFL Network’s “Thursday Night Football.”

These apps are free to download, and it’s also free to live stream the games. The only catch is that the streams are solely available online on phones. You cannot use the apps to live stream games on a larger screen, such as a tablet, laptop, or connected TV.

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” for Free Online

If you don’t have ESPN and were hoping to watch “Monday Night Football” for free on a larger screen, consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes ESPN in its bundle of channels.

Streaming TV packages which feature ESPN start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month, depending on the service and the channels included. But each package comes with free trial periods for new subscribers that last about a week. New subscribers could register today and watch the ESPN broadcast of Giants vs. Falcons on “Monday Night Football” for free, and still have a few days afterwards to continue to test out the service.

Just remember to cancel before the trial period ends if you do not want to become a paying subscriber.

As for which streaming TV service is best, that’s a personal decision based mostly on your budget and the kind of channels your household watches most. The streaming TV services Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include ESPN with their basic packages, alongside dozens of other channels.

How to Watch Tonight’s ‘Monday Night Football’ 49ers vs. Packers Game Online for Free

Tonight’s “Monday Night Football” matchup of the San Francisco 49ers vs. Green Bay Packers is being broadcast on ESPN, with a kickoff scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET.

NFL fans can watch “Monday Night Football” even if they don’t have a cable TV package with ESPN. There are a few different strategies to watch tonight’s 49ers vs. Packers game for free — online or on TV. Here’s what you need to know.

How to Live Stream “Monday Night Football” for Free

You’re in luck if you were hoping to be able to live stream NFL games including “Monday Night Football” on your phone.

Download either the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL app, and you’ll be able to live stream many NFL games for free during the 2018 season. Both apps give you free live streams of the Sunday NFL games that are broadcast on Fox and CBS in your area, as well as nationally televised primetime games such as ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” and Fox and the NFL Network’s “Thursday Night Football.”

Be warned, though, that the apps only allow free NFL game live streams on your phone. The apps cannot be used for streaming games on a larger screen, such as a tablet, laptop, or connected TV.

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” for Free Online

Streaming a football game on your phone is hardly the optimal viewing experience. If you’d rather watch the Packers vs. 49ers game tonight online for free and don’t have cable, consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes ESPN in packages.

Streaming TV services operate similarly to satellite or cable TV packages in that they bundle a group of pay channels together for subscribers. But streaming TV customers generally pay lower monthly bills compared to cable subscribers. And streaming TV customers can watch online channels on any device they want, including tablets and smart TVs.

The streaming TV services Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all offer free trials that last about a week for new subscribers, and they all include ESPN with basic packages. New subscribers can register today and watch the 49ers vs. Packers “Monday Night Football” game online for free tonight — and then still have a few more days to try out the service.

Streaming TV package prices start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month, after the free trial ends. If you don’t want to become a paying subscriber, remember to cancel before the trial period is over. If you miss the deadline, you’ll be charged in full for the first month.

Packers vs. 49ers Betting Odds

As for the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers matchup tonight, the Packers are 9.5-point favorites to win. At 2-2-1, the Packers have not asserted themselves as one of the NFL’s best teams this year. Their two-time NFL MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers has struggled with injuries, and the Packers have looked inconsistent this season, with a shutout 22-0 win over the Buffalo Bills one week and a 23-31 loss to the Detroit Lions the next.

Yet tonight’s “Monday Night Football” game is being played in Green Bay at Lambeau Field, and the Packers are undefeated at home so far in 2018. Factor in also that the 49ers are a lowly 1-4 this year, and they have lost their starting quarterback Jimmy Garappolo to a season-ending knee injury, and it’s easy to see how the Packers are big favorites to pull off the victory tonight.

Saturday Night Live Shows the Dark Side of the New Presidential Alert System

Last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live mocked the new Presidential cell phone alert system, which was used across the country for the first time on Wednesday.

Though last Wednesday’s alert was only a test, the SNL sketch portrayed some of the worst fears about the way that President Trump could use the system, and offered some alternative alerts that could come to American phones.

“Failing New York Times says I cheated on taxes. Duh! It’s called being smart,” read one alert in the sketch.

The sketch played on many Americans’ skepticism that President Trump will only use the alert system in emergency situations, despite the fact that there is a law forbidding it.

“Warning: White men are under attack,” read one fake alert.

Late Night Has Way Too Many Men. It Showed During the Brett Kavanaugh Hearings

Like so many women in America, Samantha Bee had a rough time getting through last week. She took the stage to host the most recent episode of her Wednesday-night talk show, Full Frontal, dressed in a funereal black suit, her tense posture like a full-body cringe. “I’ve been doing a lot of Carrie-ing to get through it,” Bee said, referring to (what else?) the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. The Carrie in question wasn’t Sex and the City’s Bradshaw, who might have typed a pithy question about the judge into her laptop, but Stephen King’s Carrie. The studio lights turned red, and as Bee stared at a placard that read “this week,” it burst into flames.

She didn’t seem merely disappointed or bemused—she looked angry. Bee may well have been consciously playing up that ire, but such scathing humor could only have come from a genuine place. “I’m having a little trouble controlling my rage this week,” she admitted after calling out Lindsey Graham for hypocrisy and wishing diarrhea upon Mitch McConnell. Bee closed by addressing Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee directly: “Every assault survivor in the country has seen you spewing garbage all week,” she said. “And they are not going to forget—not even after 35 years, which is as long as you think a woman’s memory is reliable.”

The episode aired the night before Thursday’s endless testimony from Kavanaugh and his accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. But it was Bee’s righteous anger, more than anything on late night Thursday, that captured Friday’s mood. As many Americans were still nursing news hangovers, Ana Maria Archilla and Maria Gallagher shamed GOP swing voter Jeff Flake in an elevator, in a confrontation that seemed to catalyze his subsequent demand for an FBI investigation into Kavanaugh’s past. Their earnestness aside, the activists were speaking the same language as Bee. All three women fixed their attention on the pain of survivors.

This has been a frustratingly rare perspective to encounter in the late-night comedy sphere since Thursday’s hearings. Because Bee’s show only airs once a week, we won’t get another (perhaps literal) full-length fire sermon from her until Wednesday. Meanwhile, male-dominated nighttime talk and sketch shows have taken on Kavanaugh with varying degrees of success, but also from a certain emotional remove. “It was like a sad Super Bowl,” Trevor Noah said of the proceedings on Thursday’s Daily Show, in a half-baked comparison that wildly overstated their voyeuristic appeal.

That’s not to say that the comedians weren’t genuinely affected by the hearings. Some plainly said as much, transitioning from dark jokes about Kavanaugh to somber statements—a common move for late-night hosts in the Trump era, and one Michelle Wolf smartly skewered on her recently canceled Netflix show. James Corden took time Thursday to mention how “inspired and humbled” he was by Ford’s testimony, as well as by the #MeToo movement. “If this is something you’ve been through or are going through, just remember you’re not alone,” he said. “There are so many people who are standing alongside you right now, all over the world.” It was a kind statement but also a weirdly vague one, sidestepping questions of gender while implicitly drawing a line between people who’ve been through sexual assault and people like Corden.

Other hosts led with a conspicuously masculine, father-of-daughters brand of fury. Stephen Colbert closed his extended Thursday-night monologue with a serious word to Kavanaugh, informing the judge that the pushback against abusers in government began not with some nefarious Democratic plot, but with the allegations of sexual assault against Trump: “Your Republican buddies up on that committee said, ‘Yeah, but we want our guy on the Supreme Court,’” Colbert seethed. “And that’s you, Brett.” Jimmy Kimmel recounted that “people were crying in front of their televisions” during Ford’s testimony without acknowledging how many of those people must have been women who’d been through similar ordeals. Then he attacked Donald Trump Jr.’s virility for a tweet critical of Ford, branding him “a dull-witted human canker sore who shoots baby hippos out of Daddy’s helicopter because it’s the only way you can get an erection.”

The least convincing takes came from unsurprising corners: Jimmy Fallon, he of the hair-tousle felt round the world, barely addressed Kavanaugh on Thursday—and when he did, it was mostly to poke fun at the press conference in which Trump floated the idea that George Washington faced accusations of his own. Bill Maher, who once compared #MeToo to McCarthyism, expressed his support for Ford by opining that, “If that was a divorce hearing, she would’ve got the kids.” Faced with the spectacle of Lindsey Graham fulminating against Democrats whom he blamed for the delay in Kavanaugh’s confirmation, Maher pulled out a few gay jokes, referring to John McCain as Graham’s “dead boyfriend” and cracking that Graham is “familiar with the back door.”

Maher wasn’t the only comedian who went to that arguably homophobic well. In the cold open of its season premiere, Saturday Night Live restaged Thursday’s hearing, casting Kate McKinnon as Graham, with lines like, “I’m a single white male, 5’10’’, uncut.” The skit turned out to be a total bust, enlisting Matt Damon to play Kavanaugh in an only slightly embellished highlight reel of the judge’s testimony, from beer to boofing. Later, the show found time for an ’80s frat party sketch implying that everyone present—guys and girls—had done things in college that could destroy their careers. For whatever reason, SNL’s three male head writers, Colin Jost, Michael Che and Kent Sublette effectively omitted Ford’s experience from the episode.

But not every man in late night chose to erase Ford in favor of mocking or lecturing Kavanaugh and his allies. “Her testimony today was a towering act of courage, given the trauma she’s survived,” Seth Meyers declared on Thursday, before enumerating the ways Ford had exceeded expectations and making jokes at the expense of those who tried to poke holes at her story. (Was that so hard?) John Oliver dedicated all of Sunday’s episode to Kavanaugh, closing with the withering analysis that Republicans who claimed to find both Ford and Kavanaugh credible were simply giving women the finger. “Their response was: ‘We believe you. We just don’t care,’” Oliver concluded.

For the most part, late-night didn’t do a terrible job with Kavanaugh, balancing the humor we so badly needed by midnight on Thursday with the gravity Ford’s testimony deserved. And maybe that makes it easy to argue that demands for more women in late night are about bean-counting more than they are about a real need for those shows to represent a wider range of perspectives. But we turn to late-night comedy, even before we turn to the next morning’s op-eds, to help us process the events of the day. In the two decades since Jon Stewart transformed The Daily Show into a loud, mad, politically charged therapy session—and especially in recent years, as sexual misconduct has come to the forefront of the cultural conversation—that nightly reckoning has included no small amount of righteous anger.

The shortage of similarly cathartic female voices (particularly Wolf’s caustic one) has been felt. As a woman, I feel it—that gulf between people like me and famous men expressing sympathy for people like me. “I know today blows,” Bee said, lying supine on a couch in a short video Full Frontal posted on YouTube Friday. “Every time you think you understand how awful rape culture is, a rancid puff of Drakkar Noir steers his way to the Supreme Court, and you realize that you had no idea.” It’s the only joke I’ve heard since Wednesday that sounds like a (much) funnier version of the exchanges I’ve had with female friends over the last few days. Amid all this hurting, for ourselves and for our gender, the bitter laughter Bee’s video inspires really does feel like the best medicine.
