Crashing premieres Sunday at 10:30 p.m. Crashing is happy to wear its heart on its sleeve — or, more accurately, on the big goofy face of its leading man. Holmes plays “Pete,” a much less experienced and successful version of his real self who, after splitting up with his wife (Lauren Lapkus), begins crashing at the abodes of more successful stand-ups like the playing-themselves Artie Lange and T.J. That jarring disjunction fuels this New York-based show, a Judd Apatow-executive-produced, Holmes-created   meta-sitcom in the tradition of Louie and Maron, which mines the personal history of the former Pete Holmes Show host with highly enjoyable results.

Donald Trump slams Don Lemon during contentious exchange with CNN reporter

I’ll tell you what else I see. I see tone. It’s the most honest. “I mean, I watch CNN, it’s so much anger and hatred and just the hatred,” Trump said. When I go to rallies, they turned around they start screaming at CNN, they want to throw their placards at CNN. I do get good ratings, you have to admit that. Of Lemon’s CNN Tonight, Trump added, “You look at your show that goes on at 10 o’clock in the evening. If a guest comes out and says something positive about me, it’s brutal.”
The comments directly contradicted a previous statement made by the president, who seem to claim earlier in the press conference that he didn’t watch CNN. I think it should be — I think it would be frankly more interesting. … But I think it should be straight. Not because they’re good — because they hit me also when I do something wrong — but they have the most honest morning show. “I don’t watch it any more because it’s [not] very good. But the tone is such hatred. The panel is almost always exclusive anti-Trump. I have to say, Fox &   Friends in the morning, they’re very honorable people. “I’m really not a bad person by the way. “I honestly do. The good news is he doesn’t have good ratings. I think you’d do much better by being different. You just take a look at that show. That’s all I can say. But the panel is almost exclusive anti-Trump, and the hatred and venom coming from his mouth. The public gets it, you know. I watch it, I see it, I’m amazed by it, and I just think you’d be a lot better off,” Trump said of CNN. I know how good everybody’s ratings are right now but I think that actually — I think that’d actually be better.”
Despite Trump’s claims, CNN President Jeff Zucker said during a state-of-the-company luncheon on Thursday that “there has been no diminution whatsoever in the CNN brand.” Referring to the network’s brand survey, which gauged the viewer impact of   CNN’s coverage of Trump and the president’s accusations   of “fake news,” Zucker added, “[CNN’s] as strong as it’s ever been. Take a look at some of your shows in the morning or the evening. That is a constant hit. “I just see many, many untruthful things. The tone is such hatred,” Trump said in response to CNN reporter Jim Acosta about the news network. The hatred coming from other people on your network.” Trump did not mention Lemon by name. President Donald Trump used much of his Thursday press conference to slam CNN and anchor Don Lemon, while also offering his enthusiastic praise for Fox News’ morning show,   Fox & Friends. It’s incredibly trusted and we see no impact whatsoever in all of those attacks on the CNN brand.”

‘Hell or High Water’ writer explains the film’s ambiguous ending

They’re playing a chess match, both of them. Getty Images
I love the fact that we find ourselves in a situation where what should be a shootout is a series of monologues, really examining purpose and motivation and understand and to be understood. How much Alberto’s death affected his children and their children? Getty Images
Marcus deserves to know why. Getty Images
When violence takes place in my films, I want there to be real consequences for it. I love a movie that when I sees it makes me come up with a story beyond the film. When Taylor Sheridan set out to write a modern-day Western, he knew that it would end in a shootout — white hat versus black hat — but that’s not necessarily what he wanted. They all know. When Marcus talks about his partner having a family, it’s the consequences of actions reverberating through generations. The nominated writers will break down select pages that were essential to the stories they were telling. In my mind, that’s exactly how a modern-day Western ends — the kids come home from school and you don’t get the stand off. I want to watch the suffering beyond the act. We’re robbed of that moment, and the audience is left to guess what the heck Toby and Marcus are talking about at the very end. The consequences to his actions are that another family will suffer now, even though it wasn’t his intention. I love imagining what might have happened. I don’t think it’s my right to tell you what I think, because it could alter what you think. They’re boxers circling each other in the ring, and the punches they throw are with honesty. It made sense that they would say this and that this would be the way the character would react. That had been done before, and he wasn’t eager to see the cliché play out again. Marcus is suffering a tremendous amount of guilt as well. Show Full Article This was a way to tell him without confessing, yet it’s still a confession of a sense. They will, so that his doesn’t. In the lead-up to this year’s Academy Awards on Feb. That’s a long way of saying that I ain’t answering that. 26, EW is taking a closer look at some of the screenplays honored in the original and adapted categories. It’s just how it unfolded as I wrote. Here the Oscar-nominated writer shares his thought process for   Hell or High Water‘s uncertain end. That doesn’t make it any less selfish in its own strange way, but he literally did none of this for himself. Skipping ahead to very end…

I just thought that for either one of them to die was letting them off easy. I knew the characters so well by this point that I just wrote. Obviously, Marcus has a tremendous responsibility for having failed his partner and also for the way he treated his partner. He never got an opportunity to apologize for that and to tell him that he was his only friend. Toby’s actions were foolish, but they were also selfless as well. That cheapens the process a bit…. Getty Images
The line that probably saved Toby’s life in the moment is when Marcus says, “You don’t live here anymore,” and he says, “No, it’s theirs.” The family does the math on their faces. He says, “The things you do for your kids, huh?” He recognizes that Toby did none of this for himself. As Sheridan wrote, the showdown between the bank-robbing Toby (Chris Pine) and the retired marshall chasing him, Marcus (Jeff Bridges), began to change into something more surprising and emotional.

What would have happened if his family had not come home? Getty Images
I’m a real stream-of-consciousness writer. There was a certain amount of suffering that they both deserved to endure.

The best Korra and Asami moments from ‘The Legend of Korra’

However, Asami disagrees and begins highlighting all the good the Avatar has accomplished over the years. Their First Meeting
Korra and Asami didn’t start off on the best of terms. Earlier this week, EW previewed the first issue of the much-anticipated comic book sequel to the show, in which Korra and Asami finally get to enjoy a lovely vacation in the Spirit World. EPISODE: Season 3, Episode 1

Battle Couple
Korra and Asami are just as good at fighting together as talking. The episode sees Korra greet Asami with a long hug and the non-bender compliments the blushing Avatar’s new hairdo. Asami had started dating Korra’s friend Mako after crashing into him on the street, and since Korra still harbored her own crush on Mako, they were bound to clash a little. It’s worth noting that even Mako, who dated both Korra and Asami, later noticed the tension between both characters over dinner. The Legend of Korra, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko’s much-acclaimed follow-up to their popular Nickelodeon animated series   Avatar: The Last Airbender, ended in 2014 by finally pairing up its female leads: The powerful, headstrong Avatar Korra and the beautiful industrialist Asami Sato. Check those out below. This inspires Korra to suggest that the two of them do exactly that. EPISODE: Season 4, Episode 8  

Heart-to-Heart and Hug
It’s no surprise that the TV series finale had some major moments that signified Korra and Asami’s growing feelings for one another—especially in the final minutes. She then got so distracted looking at Asami that she crashed straight into one of Republic City’s new Spirit World vines. Though their earthbender escort fled in terror, the two women teamed up to make short work of their foes – thanks to a combination of earthbending, electric shock gloves, and even some high-flying acrobatics. Going off of Asami’s desire to visit the Spirit World, the pair heads to the newly formed Spirit Portal, holding hands as they step into it, and gazing into each other’s eyes in the final seconds. “Whatever happened with Mako, I’m glad it hasn’t come between us,” Korra admitted. EPISODE: Season 3, Episode 3

Big Reunion
After a long three years — during which Korra chopped her hair short, renounced   her title, and start fights in bending cage matches — the young Avatar finally returns to Republic City, where she’s once again reunited with her friends. In honor of the release, EW went back and compiled the very best Korra-Asami moments from over the course of   The Legend of Korra. While collecting a tax shipment for the Earth Queen, Korra and Asami ran straight into a crew of punk bikers straight out of Mad Max: Fury Road. Korra then tells her that she doesn’t think she can help the world, especially since her actions have caused it trouble in the past. EPISODE: Season 4, Episode 13

Officially Hand-in-Hand
In the last few minutes of the animated TV series, Asami mentions that she could really use a vacation after the events of the last couple of months. EPISODE: Season 1, Episode 4

Going for a Spin
Asami may not have bending   powers like the rest of Team Avatar, but she’s not useless. She first proved this to Korra (who initially saw her as no more than a prissy rival for Mako’s love) by taking the Avatar   for a spin in her own “Sato-mobile.” After a thrilling race, Korra admitted that “I had you pegged wrong.” Both of them, it turned out, preferred racing and fighting to stuff like “makeovers.”

Clearing the Air
After two seasons of the Korra-Asami-Mako love triangle, the two women finally put it behind them in the opening to season 3. EPISODE: Season 4, Episode 13

Tea Break
While this moment may not seem significant, the tea break does highlight the couple’s growing closeness as Asami seeks out Korra on Air Temple Island and bring her a hot cup of tea. Taking a drive through Republic City, Korra and Asami joked about their past entanglements with Mako and relished in their own friendship. Competition over Mako’s affection would color the first season or two of Korra and Asami’s relationship, though they also grew to appreciate each other as friends in their own right—and more importantly, as teammates in Team Avatar’s fight for justice and balance. Asami told Korra that losing her would have been just as big a loss for her as the death of her father, to which Korra offers   her condolences and hugs her grieving friend.

Chelsea Handler making Netflix talk show changes

Changes are coming to the second season of Chelsea Handler’s talk show. Netflix’s internal research discovered that most fans   caught up on the show on Friday nights. The next edition of Netflix’s Chelsea is ditching its three-day-per-week format from its debut season. So the show will still air across the same number of weeks but will consist of 30 episodes instead of 90 as first announced. Show Full Article Handler posted a video weighing in on the switch:

Chelsea is available on Netflix. By doing fewer shows but having an hour-long edition, the idea is that Handler will be able to do “dig deeper   into the subjects that matter to Chelsea most.” According to Netflix, the new season will have “more in-depth interviews, more robust field pieces, more dinner parties” with Handler traveling to   India, Europe,   Washington, DC, Montana and other places. Instead   of airing half-hour shows on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, the second season will air a single hour-long episode on Friday only.
