Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith is the movie your annoying friend points to when you mention how much you didn’t like the prequels. They say this despite this scene:

But finally, someone actually fixed Episode III, so that it’s watchable. You may remember about ten years ago, when the movie hit DVD, people were sharing a clip of the movie overdubbed in Mandarin with the English subtitles on, resulting in this in the Do Not Want meme.

Well, a YouTuber has decided to go back and overdub the whole movie with those subtitles, resulting in the official way we all have to watch Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, or how it will forever be known Star War The Third Gathers: Backstroke of the West.

So now Anakin’s classic line “From my point of view the Jedi are evil” is now

From “the Closet Summit” to “Birdie Sanders,” the 2016 election was the never-ending nightmare that seems like it never ended. But it’s still worth a closer look, especially when Marco Rubio made allegations about not being able to trust people with small hands (among other things about small hands — man, 2016 really was awful).

Anyway, Seth Meyers recapped it all in his “Closer Look” segment. 12 months of horror in eight minutes of comedy. There are all those great things you forgot about, especially this:

Maybe it wasn’t all bad. Wait, yes, it was.

There’s no business like show business, and because of that, you don’t have to care about other people.

When Jerry Lewis, the Hollywood icon behind The Nutty Professor, agreed to sit down with The Hollywood Reporter, that didn’t necessarily mean he would be answering any questions. In fact, it means he'll be the one asking the questions, thank you very much.

Watch in horror as he wastes everyone’s time for seven minutes, parroting back whatever the last thing the interviewer asks him.

If nothing else, this should prepare you for your next job interview. If you find yourself in a rough patch, just start screaming "Why?" at the interviewer. It works.

If there’s one thing Star Wars fans do, it’s argue. Who could win in a fight, Darth Vader or Darth Maul? Who’s stronger, Boba Fett or IG-88? Who wore it better, Princess Leia or R2-D2?

They could go on and on across the galaxy — and by galaxy, we mean internet.

via GIPHY

But there’s one argument that needs to be put to rest: Are Daisy Ridley from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Felicity Jones from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story the same person?


Appearing MTV After Hours, Felicity Jones shot a quick PSA as to why these two brown-haired, British women are not the same person, despite what you may have heard. She also throws out a pretty solid spoiler for any annoying fan conspiracy theorists out there.

It’s already been a big day for President-elect Donald Trump, the billionaire reality TV game show host who won the presidency last month. Earlier today, he called to cancel Boeing’s Air Force One contract and a New York City Councilman asked Trump to leave New York. This is coming off of a long week (a loooooooong week) of diplomatic blunders and concern.

Seth Meyers took a Closer Look at Trump’s long week, which is inching ever closer to a longer four years, on last night’s Late Night. Seth dove into the last week of Trump and found that after the calls of voter fraud and calls with Taiwan, maybe it’s time for a new pledge of a allegiance. Instead of placing our hands over our hearts, we would place the palm of our hands over our forehead.

Check it out in the video above.

Tomi Lahren, the hyper-conservative host of Tomi on The Blaze, who you might recognize from the Facebook posts of that dude you went to high school with, visited Trevor Noah on The Daily Show last night, and it went pretty much as expected. Lahren, in her typical hot-headed way, clinged tightly to her platform as she wrestled with a relaxed Trevor Noah over such issues as Black Lives Matter, Colin Kaepernick, immigration, and, of course, that billionaire reality-TV game show host that won the presidency last month.

These segments are basically set up to be viral eviscerations, and this one is no different. Tomi generally feels like she’s on the defense, especially when she says things like “I don’t see color” and “Donald Trump is reasonable.” Final thoughts: This is an awkward half hour that will likely dominate your social media feeds for the next 24 hours.

So prepare to tug your collar because here’s Tomi Lahren on The Daily Show looking for a leg to stand on.

President-elect Donald Trump, the billionaire reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency in November, is a busy guy. Between tweeting that citizens should be jailed for exercising free speech and trying on new hats, he’s also a wheelin’ and dealin’ business man.

Over the past few weeks, you might have heard something about a few of Trump’s “conflicts of interest,” i.e. he’s not supposed to be doing Trump business stuff while he’s doing Trump president stuff because the constitution. When it comes to things like this, it can be hard to follow due to the fact that business is boring. Thankfully, we have The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, who put together this awesome segment explaining Trump’s conflicts of interest.

Check it out and enjoy the next four years, America!

The 1980s were a dangerous time for many of us, but it was especially dangerous if you were from a specific demographic: A sitcom mother.

Go ahead, think about it. Have you ever noticed that while you were watching reruns of Diff’rent Strokes or Full House that there was never a mom around? To paraphrase a 90s sitcom, what’s the deal with that?

This was no accident. There was a reason why so many sitcoms were about single fathers dealing with multiple children, and the After Hours team at Cracked took a quick look at why “audiences tuned in week after week to laugh at grieving families and abandoned children?”

via GIPHY

In this video, Cracked uncovers the reason that the 80s were such a bad time to be a sitcom mom, or a sit-mom, as I’ll refer to them. Some reasons include: the success of the first example, Diff’rent Strokes led to copycats; the removal of a show’s moral center (the mother) would result in “dad’s burning dinners and uncomfortably buying bras,” as well as unaccompanied minors playing in a dump and getting stuck in a fridge. But ultimately, they discover that these shows were a response to rising divorce rates and the breakdown of the American nuclear family.

Check out the video and learn a little something about how the 80s were a golden age of abandoned kids and idiot fathers.

donald trump impersonator hires bodyguards

What do you do when the reality TV gameshow host you impersonate wins the presidency? The same thing that happens when you win the presidency, you hire the Secret Service… sort of.

John Di Domenico, who spent the last 12 years impersonating Donald Trump, says that now that the president-elect has inspired so much rage and ire from some American citizens, he fears for his safety. So Di Domenico did what any other sane, rational Trump impersonator would do: He hired bodyguards.

Remember kids: Impersonating Donald Trump can have some unintended consequences, like being mistaken for Donald Trump.

However, even though he’s booked through the end of the year, Di Domenico’s appearances, which range from $3,500 to $10,000, have started to drop off. Apparently, now that Trump’s in the White House, people aren’t so eager to see him.

“It was really off the charts on the run up but now that he’s elected it’s like, okay, he’s not going anywhere,” Di Domenico told the New York Post. “There was this frenzy to book me, especially these last few months. A lot people thought he wasn’t going to become president.”

Will Trump promise to bring those jobs back, too? Only time will tell.

Metallica’s done a lot of brilliant things in their career. They have made or been involved with at least four perfect works of art. Their first three albums and the documentary Some Kind of Monster are cultural touchstones that will be looked to and enjoyed for generations.

They’ve also done some things that have not been so great. In 1999, they led the charge against mp3-sharing platform Napster, which alienated some fans — and got some us kicked off the site, not that we’re holding any grudges. They also released St. Anger, which come on.

Jimmy Fallon loves to play games and have fun. He likes to make politicians wear funny pants and give noogies to a reality gameshow host turned most powerful person on the planet. It’s his thing.

And now there’s this, a video of Metallica performing “Enter Sandman” with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on classroom instruments. Only time will tell if this falls into their works of cultural touchstones or cultural blunders. But honestly, it’ll probably just be a cute thing that makes a lot of people smile for three minutes. Enjoy!

There are so many hot takes on the 2016 Presidential election. Take your pick. You can read about polling data, demographics, and/or a million other excuses for why every expert got this thing wrong. But if you want a little sugar with your medicine, you can turn to late night TV hosts.

Here's a rundown of how TV after 11 is reacting:

Following a delightful song and dance number between Late Show-host Stephen Colbert and an innocent ragamuffin, the Mayor of Candytown himself, Jon Stewart, dropped in to offer the audience some “toffee from an old man’s pants.” But upon learning that Donald Trump is running for president, Stewart, who’s a little out of the loop these days, gave his patented spit-take salute in surprise. Time to get back to work… after a little Yentil, for which there is always time.

Hamilton's Javier Muñoz, an astronaut, a crossing guard, and, of course, an adorable orphan joined other classic symbols of Americana, Colbert, and Stewart on stage to remind the audience to get out and vote. Make this old man’s wish come true, America. 

And now, what we’ve all been waiting for, gifs of people doing spit takes!

Quincy Jones was on the Ellen show previously talking about the Kickstarter to fund his comedy special. At the time she presented him with a $10,000 check and simply mentioned that some distributor should pick it up when his special has been recorded. 



Clearly, Ellen has done more than that. Jones plans to tape the special at Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles April 4 and it looks like fans can watch it on HBO when it gets released.
