    So I was just talking with someone today about the Emmys coming up this Sunday, and was told that she won’t be watching along with some of her friends because they just don’t like how Stephen Colbert spends the beginning of his show every night bashing Donald Trump.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    I personally don’t care because if Hillary Clinton had been elected (as she should of), we wouldn’t even be having this discussion. I’ll still be watching the Emmys this Sunday night, and I’m very excited to see Stephen Colbert host. And if he brings up some political humor, I say bring it on.

    If your reasoning for watching or not watching an awards show lies with the host I think you need to get your priorities checked. When you are watching an awards show, you are not supporting the host as much as you are supporting the artists that make up the academy, the artists that are nominated and the work that they’ve done over the past year.

    Yeah if it’s the host that annoys you mute it when he comes on. Don’t just switch off altogether.

    Although I feel like the railing against Trump is a little bit too far and I can acknowledge that the media and Hollywood is dominated by liberals, I am glad that there is political comedy out there that is doing well because in my opinion, the late night TV personalities are doing a lot better job of covering Trump than MSNBC and CNN who devote 24 hour news cycles to screaming matches about a claim that Trump made without evidence on whether its true or not. How about call bullshit and move on? How about covering news that matters instead of analyzing every single one of Trump’s tweets on to what he meant? There is no way to win that argument. Comedians like Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel resort to low blows but Stephen Colbert, John Oliver and especially Samantha Bee consistently provided Trump-era comedy and commentary that we desperately need to keep our sanity and I am glad for that.

    Interesting enough, I just found this article where Stephen Colbert talks about how much he’s aware that even his own humor won’t stop Donald Trump…

    I completely disagree about Kimmel and Fallon. The latter has no balls to really go after Trump and his Neo-Nazi minions and Kimmel has given us some of the most sly and entertaining comedy of the year. Sam Bee is the worst by far and if she was hosting any awards show I would boycott watching it (I’d still predict it though) without thinking twice on a basis of personal morals and decency. Seriously, f**k her and her “StillWithHer” Hillary stanning destroying the credibility and sanity of a large portion of American Democrats. I understand why your friend is boycotting, though I would just tell this person to mute it while he is on. I did that in 2010 when Mel Gibson presented an Award at the Golden Globe. Didn’t turn off the ceremony though, because even at that young age I was aware enough to recognize that just because I didn’t like one small part, I still could enjoy the big picture. Also, F**k Trump, and while we all can have our opinions, him and his cabinet of deplorables are killing this nation’s economy and reputation throughout the world, with his inexcusable shit like withdrawing us from the Paris Climate Accords, to him personally hitting on his own daughter, to his shady dealings with Putin and Russia, to his being an orange sociopath who straight up has no idea what the hell he is doing as our Commander-In-Chief.

    Sorry I showed up late to the party on this thread. Thought I’d try to liven things up with my commentary. 🙂

    The Good Place and The Expanse, the best comedy and drama series of 2016-17, respectively, aren’t there, and it will be yet another season of asterisk city for those who win but whom never had to face them in any categories.

    They faced them on the nominating ballots.

    Why would anyone think that Colbert’s jokes would “stop” Trump?

    @riley Maybe some people actually think Trump’s ego is so fragile that if Colbert hurts his feelings TOO MUCH he will resign. But that would require Trump to have the self-awareness to know that he is in disgrace, and he is far too narcissistic and flat-out insane to ever have such a realization.
