The disgraced former Access Hollywood and Today co-host "is close to locking down a deal that will bring him back to television after a two-year absence following his ousting from NBC," according to The Blast. Bush is said to be in talks to join Extra when it makes the jump from NBC to Fox stations this fall, reports The Blast, adding that he's one of several new hosts considered for the re-launch of the syndicated entertainment show. Mario Lopez currently hosts Extra with Renee Bargh and Tanika Ray. Bush previously worked on Extra early in his career. Bush famously lost his NBC gigs after the Donald Trump Access Hollywood tape surfaced one month before the 2016 presidential election. He made a brief "apology tour" in December 2017, appearing on Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Janeane Garofalo defends her friend Louis CK in a heated podcast interview: "Leave Louis CK alone"
"Enough with that," Garofalo said on the Poptarts podcast. "And again, there are so many issues we gotta be motivated on. He’s been my friend — and I stand by that — he’s been my friend since 1985, and I think he has suffered. And when he performs at the Comedy Cellar and people get all irate, if nothing else, care about his daughters. If nothing else — if you can find no compassion for him, which I think you should — think about how his daughters, who hear all of this stuff, feel. Why don’t you leave him alone for them if you’re so women-empowering?” The interview became intense after she brought up CK's daughters. When podcast hosts Emily Rems and Callie Watts challenged Garofalo, she responded that they didn't know the full story and that their their pointing out that Louis CK took out his penis was wrong. "I do think there is a point where somebody stops kicking people when they’re down," she said. "It doesn’t matter what the gender is. It doesn’t. This isn’t about male or female."

“I feel that what happened to me, a large part of it is anti-Semitism,” the former Roseanne star told The Jerusalem Post. “I think it played a part — the fact that I was never allowed to explain what I meant — and what I meant was a commentary on Iran — so they purposely mischaracterized what I said and wouldn’t let me explain. And in haste they did something unprecedented that they’ve never done to any other artist." Barr said she thinks being the most pro-Israel person led to her ouster.
