The 71st Emmy Awards–honoring the best television in comedy, drama, variety, and movies–are taking place tonight on FOX, airing live 8-11 PM ET/5-8 PM PT. The Emmy’s are following in Oscar’s footsteps this year by going without a host. I’m hope this doesn’t become the future as it will put many comedians out of a job. There’s a shocker right out of the gate! An animated Homer Simpson is hosting the show…or so we thought. …"71st Emmy Awards Winners: Live Updates"

Where’s My Roy Cohn? is a documentary on the guy who served as chief aide to Joseph McCarthy as well as being a mentor to Donald Trump. Listen, I think Matt Tyrnauer is a fine filmmaker. He does a solid job at digging up interviews out of the archives and grabbing interviews for the film. But when push comes to shove, is Roy Cohn somebody that’s really worthy of a documentary let alone a biopic? …"Where’s My Roy Cohn? Lays Roots For Trump"

If there’s one thing to say about season four, it’s that the season also personifies what it means to represent truth, justice, and the American Way. This season certainly wasn’t afraid to get down and dirty by offering political commentary. Ben Lockwood’s Agent Liberty and his Children of Liberty are no…"Supergirl: Season 4 Hits Blu-ray, DVD"
