Stephen Colbert’s Insults Against Donald Trump Spark #FireColbert Movement

Stephen Colbert’s Insults Against Donald Trump Spark #FireColbert Movement
Stephen Colbert is in hot water after unleashing a series of insults against Donald Trump during Monday night’s episode of “The Late Show.”

During his opening monologue, the late night host defended CBS’s John Dickerson, who had interviewed the president for his show, “Face the Nation.” The president abruptly ended the interview when Dickerson pressed him on his unsubstantiated claims that President Obama had wiretapped his office. During his monologue, Colbert called Dickerson “a fair-minded journalist and one of the most competent people who will ever walk into your office.” The host then went on “to trade insults with the President of the United States to his face.”

“Mr. Trump, your presidency? I love your presidency. I call it ‘Disgrace the Nation,'” Colbert began. “You’re not the Potus, you’re the Blotus.

2015 Summer Movies Heading To Your Local Cinemas

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.

From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.

Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below!

Why Survivor's all-time best season rankings are wrong

Why Survivor's all-time best season rankings are wrong
The results of a CBS.com poll of "Survivor" fans are now on newsstands, as part of a special commemorative issue of CBS Watch! magazine. The 100-page, full-color magazine is a pretty great overview of the series, except for the absolute wrongness of its polls. That's especially true for its "all time best seasons" poll. Yes, ranking "Survivor" seasons is about as difficult as stacking cooked spaghetti noodles, and about as useful. It's mostly good for creating disagreement. What one viewer values, another dismisses--but that's one of the many reasons why the series has survived for 30 seasons. There's a lot to argue about. Even looking at objective data about Survivor winners and cast members can prompt discussion. So, here are the results of CBS' poll, and one fan's thoughts and arguments about why the other fans' collective wisdom often seems screwed up. #1: Survivor Heroes vs. Villains, season 20, 2010 Why this

The Best (and Worst) of “Survivor”

There is something eternally entertaining about watching the decision-making processes of human beings. That’s why 27 seasons on, years and years after the shiny new glow of the reality concept has worn off, Survivor still exists. The simple format of systematically eliminating members of a group can play out in an infinite number of ways, all dependent on how people view themselves, view others in the group, and evaluate their own best interests. It’s a fascinating game, not complicated (be in the majority, stay there) but more complex than anyone could have envisioned it becoming.

I have not managed to watch every season, but each time I think I might finally give it up, I’m immediately re-engaged by the strategy as the contestants deftly and not-so-deftly maneuver around a gaggle of competing agendas and try to trick other people into letting them win. It’s the art of dirty,

'Survivor: Blood vs. Water': Vytas against the women in a tribal shakeup

Based on the commercials running all week, it's tribe shakeup time on "Survivor: Blood vs. Water." And just when Tadhana finally won one, too.

Galang

Laura Boneham is happy to be still here, while Tina is murdering some kind of metaphor about an octopus. Octopi don't have legs, Tina. The next morning, Tyson and Gervase think perhaps the next vote is the time to cut Aras, before he can reunite with his brother at the merge. Gervase wants to be the chess master and not the chess piece this time, you see. Hmmm. We aren't sure these two can really be some kind of braintrust, but you never know. We also thought no one would Ever give up Immunity at Tribal Council and Erik totally did, so.

Ciera is sad to see her mom voted out and Laura assures her, "We're still in this." It's interesting to see

'Survivor:' Jeff Probst talks Brenda vs. Dawn, the final challenge advantage, and controversial new reunion show format

'Survivor:' Jeff Probst talks Brenda vs. Dawn, the final challenge advantage, and controversial new reunion show format
Each week, host Jeff Probst answers a few questions about the most recent episode of ‘Survivor: Caramoan — Fans vs. Favorites’. Here, he talks about Sunday’s finale and reunion show.

Entertainment Weekly: So Cochran wins in a landslide. This is a guy that almost talked himself into getting voted off at the very first Tribal Council in South Pacific. Is this the biggest maturation of a player we’ve seen from a first season to a second?

Jeff Probst: I can’t think of a bigger transformation than Cochran. It was on all levels. His emotional intelligence is

Interview: Erik Reichenbach and Eddie Fox talk 'Survivor: Caramoan'
"Survivor: Caramoan" ended its season on Sunday (May 12) night with a satisfying winner, a loopy Final Tribal Council and surprises that started within seconds of the start of the episode.   Viewers didn't make it through the first commercial break before Favorite Erik Reichenbach collapsed on the path leaving Tribal Council and had to be pulled from the game. It was a move that was simultaneously shocking, but not wholly surprising, given that Erik had suffered an existential crisis in the previous episode and practically wished for an injury to free him from his "Survivor" shackles and the mocking coconuts....

Survivor 26.14, “Last Push”: A messy season ends with a clean winner

Survivor Review, Season 26, Episode 14

“Last Push”

Airs Wednesdays at 8pm (Et) on CBS

Despite the unpredictable second half of Survivor: Caramoan, a sense of inevitability dominates the finale. Cochran has avoided the vote throughout the game, and his victory feels secure after he wins the final immunity challenge. The only question is whether Dawn or Sherri will receive any votes, and the bitter jury makes it clear neither has much chance to crack the scoreboard. While Jeff Probst makes a huge deal about Cochran being unconventional, it’s not a surprise to see him win the million. Along with playing a strategic game, he has the likability factor that’s eluded powerful contestants like Russell Hantz at their Final Tribal Council. The jury needs to feel good about giving the million dollars to the winner, and only one possibility fits that requirement. Dawn received unfair nastiness from fans after Brenda’s exit,

Medically Evacuated 'Survivor' Contestant Slams Show

Erik Reichenbach is not happy. It doesn't have so much to do with the fact that he had to be medically evacuated from last night's "Survivor: Caramoan" finale, but rather that there was no proper explanation as to the injury that led to him being pulled from the game. And he could not give one at the reunion show because he was not even allowed to speak. At least Erik got to sit on the stage. In a "Survivor" first, anybody voted out before the jury was forced to sit and watch from the audience. EW spoke with Erik today and he cleared up everything regarding his evacuation and pulled no bunches with his take on the reunion, describing it as a "farce," "disrespectful," "ridiculous," and "insane."

'Survivor: Caramoan's' Dawn Meehan: We had 'the most bitter jury I've ever seen'

Dawn Meehan went from being one of "Survivor's" most likable players to a villain in the eyes of the jury by season's end. She tells Zap2it she was not prepared for the animosity of the jury.

Are you glad you went back to "Survivor"?

"Oh yeah. I absolutely love the game. I auditioned for Season 2, it's a miracle that I even played [eventually]. I watched it forever and somehow casting dug through old tapes and started a conversation with me. It's remarkable that I'm here. I was cast for Season 21 and cut two weeks before we left, then I made it to Season 23, so basically for the last three summers I've had nothing but 'Survivor' experiences and preparation. I'm very grateful for it. Not that it's not painful, but it's definitely been positive, so I'm grateful."

'Survivor: Caramoan': Dawn responds to Brenda's shocking Tribal Council moment and talks about their 'awkward' reunion show interaction
Dawn Meehan is not usually the type of person to end up in a controversy. But the bread-baking Mormon mother of six adopted children created a firestorm when she voted off buddy Brenda Lowe on Survivor: Caramoan after Brenda had found her missing fake teeth and tried to bring Dawn with her on a loved ones reward challenge. A revenge-seeking Brenda fired back at last night’s final Tribal Council, as she sought to humiliate her former friend by making her remove her teeth in front of the entire jury (and country watching at home.)

The kid who used to wear buffs to school and write papers about his favorite reality show is a kid no longer. John Cochran went from almost being voted out in his very first Tribal Council in Survivor: South Pacific to being named champion of Survivor: Caramoan — Fans vs. Favorites.

'Survivor: Caramoan' Finale: Who Won The Unanimous Vote?

'Survivor: Caramoan' Finale: Who Won The Unanimous Vote?
"Survivor: Caramoan" has crowned its 26th winner in its usual two-hour finale extravaganza. But there was one more medical evacuation to get out of the way, opening the door for an unexpected reward challenge for the final four. The reward this time, though, was an advantage in the final challenge. An advantage that ultimately didn't really pay off, but it all worked out anyway.

All that whining Erik did in Wednesday's show about starving turned out to be exactly what was happening. Collapsing immediately after Tribal Council, Erik was forced out of the game, leaving a stunned final four. Eddie was hoping this was the opening he needed to make it into the final Tribal Council, but it wasn't.

Cochran took the reward challenge that saw them building houses of cards on a platform they were balancing with one arm. A brutal challenge that could have gone to anyone. The

'Survivor: Caramoan' finale: John Cochran, Dawn Meehan or Sherri Biethman, who won the prize?

Here we are, gang. The finale of "Survivor: Caramoan" -- who do you think will win it all? We'll say right now that if Cochran makes the Final 3, we think he's got it in the bag.

Madeline

After the last Tribal, Erik starts not feeling well. He says his head is killing him and everything's spinning -- do you suppose it's lack of food? Probably shouldn't have gone climbing that coconut tree yesterday.

The EMTs take his blood pressure and it's low (though not super low), but the doctors tell him he's not going back to camp. That's a bummer.

Everybody gives Erik platitudes and praise like he's dying of an Immunity Challenge-sustained injury or something. Not that we aren't sympathetic to how hard "Survivor" is -- but this is like the lamest medical evac ever.

Who Won 'Survivor: Caramoan': Fan or Favorite?

Who Won 'Survivor: Caramoan': Fan or Favorite?
Weeks of intense competition, alliances, betrayal, and elaborate mind games on Survivor all boiled down to one night, as the twenty-sixth Sole Survivor and $1 million prize winner was announced on Sunday.

After over a month in the Philippines' scenic Caramoan Islands, the competition, which began with ten fans and ten returning players, was reduced to five players: Sherri Biethman, John Cochran, Eddie Fox, Dawn Meehan, and Erik Reichenbach.

Pics: Exclusive: 'Survivor' Challenge

The returning players outnumbered the newcomers by one heading into the series finale, but that margin was soon evened when Erik, who originally appeared on Survivor: Micronesia, was forced to withdraw from the competition for medical reasons.

That left two males and two females remaining in the game. After reacting to the shocking news of Erik's late-competition departure, the final four reflected on the remainder of their sixteen departed fellow contestants.

Who Won Survivor: Caramoan? And Who Was Pulled From the Game?

Sunday's finale of Survivor: Caramoan — Fans vs. Favorites opened with a shocking twist (and no, we're not talking about Brenda's ouster last week). Erik, leaving Tribal Council, tells his fellow castaways that he's feeling dizzy and disoriented, enough so that host Jeff Probst calls the show's doctor over to take a look. And apparently Erik's complaints of hunger last week weren't just whining. The physician immediately diagnoses Erik as being in a starvation state, hooks him up to an IV and pulls him from the game. That leaves four competitors with three days remaining: Dawn, Cochran, Eddie and Sherri. Who won? Keep reading to find out. (And side note: Who would have thought that, of all the contestants, Sherri and Eddie would be among the final four? Wild!)
