Leno Changed Late-Night TV

Longtime producer of The Tonight Show Dave Berg praises Jay Leno for changing the politics of late-night television. Berg, in his new book, Behind the Curtain, tells Reason TV’s Alexis Garcia that, “Johnny (Carson) emphasized entertainers on his show.

All is Ducky at A&E

The ducks will be quacking again and the A&E Network has egg on its face … as expected. After a week-long, politically correct drama where A&E climbed on its high horse and suspended “Duck Dynasty” megastar Phil Robertson for what it claimed were insensitive remarks toward gays, the network made an about-face and reinstated the hugely popular reality show’s patriarch over the weekend. As reported on Fox News’ “The Five,” A&E released a statement chock-full of more PC rhetoric, pointing out that it had consulted with numerous advocacy groups before making its decision. “The Five’s” Andrea Tantaros took exception to the press release, saying, “It’s a bunch of baloney. If you take a look at this, it’s about profit, profit, profit. But even more than that, it’s not about money. The fact that A&E tried to silence them, even before the scandal, shows that they have different political beliefs. It’s bigger than money. They don’t want them praying, they don’t want them talking about Jesus. They don’t get that talking about Jesus is actually profitable and what made them profitable.”

Is That a Stake in Your Pocket?

We’ve all seen them — the trailers that are 10 times better than the movies they market. Here’s one such delicious and duplicitous trailer, from 1989, released by the late and lamented Vidmark.

How to Get Revenge

This instructional video, starring Linda Blair from THE EXORCIST, starts out with a jokey premise, but the revenge tips that Blair and company offer are far too well-thought-out and far too illegal to be anything but real.
