TC & RED: LIVE is the world’s only annual podcast, where our hosts get together once at the end of each year to unwind and discuss the most memorable pieces of music, entertainment, and culture from the year that was.
Late night TV has undergone a transformation in recent years as viewers seek catharsis after each new day of unending horror from the White House. But as most shows evolved to speak to the moment, one got left behind.
At this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, comedian Michelle Wolf pulled no punches, setting fire to the president who didn’t show up, his lackeys, and the press. If it turns out she destroyed this poisonous event: good.
I spent the entire week watching all the seasons of AMC’s ‘Halt And Catch Fire’, leading up to its series finale. Inspired by the fact its killer soundtrack “almost entirely comes from The 120 Minutes Archive”, as a friend put it, I’ve compiled the official Spotify playlists from the show here—it’s time for a trip.
Late night is probably my favourite form of television, and what began that love was watching the Late Show for the very first time in the late ’90s. So, to say that the end of David Letterman’s tenure as host affected me is an understatement.
The new series ‘Marvel’s Jessica Jones’ hit Netflix last week to universal critical acclaim. In this review, I’ll tell you why I love this groundbreaking show and what it manages to do that nothing else in the genre has done before.
I was afraid that the Bruce Jenner interview on 20/20 would be a publicity stunt, but it’s not. This is for real, and it’s so important — I’m serious. In this quick take, my response to the groundbreaking special while watching it on ABC.
After 9 years of The Colbert Report, or 17 years including his time at The Daily Show, the time has come to say farewell to “Stephen Colbert”, an unprecedented character the likes of which we’ve never seen anywhere else in pop culture.
The great Lou Reed has died at 71, so let’s remember him the best way I know how, by looking back at his stint hosting an early episode of MTV’s 120 Minutes in 1986. Join in by watching these video clips from the show.
I was browsing my own website and I ran across this short spoken word piece by Maggie Estep that aired on MTV back in 1993 as part of a series called “Free Your Mind”, presumably named after the En Vogue song of the same name. It inspired me to write out some thoughts I had about it and the era it came from.
