Stephen Colbert defends Sean Spicer Emmys bit, says CBS gave no pushback on his Les Moonves comments
The Late Show host's visit to Watch What Happens Live went surreal last night when Andy Cohen had an animated talking "Shady Col-Bear!" ask him about the much-criticized Spicer bit. Asked if he regretted it, Colbert said: "Not at all. I had no fear that it would redeem him. I knew that there would be some people that wouldn’t like it, and the funny thing was is that right before I brought him out, I looked around the room and I thought to myself, ‘There’s not one joke that I’ve told tonight to this room full of liberals that was a risk other than the one I’m about to do,’ and it was the joke I most wanted to do.” As for Colbert's remarks on Moonves' sexual harassment scandal, The Late Show host said he spent days preparing his comments, and that his show notified CBS about what he was going to say 30 minutes before taping.

Dirty John boss: Our show is relevant in the #MeToo era
Executive producer Alexandra Cunningham says of the Connie Britton-starring Bravo true-crime anthology based on conman "Dirty" John Meehan: "Obviously in the #MeToo movement, to tell a story about why women don't listen to their intuition and why they can't throw off their conditioning is very relevant. A story about people meeting people on the internet and being conned when we're obviously living in a moment where even internet trolling is showing us that everybody wants to matter — and so somebody who goes on the internet specifically to find people who are trying to feel seen and be special and prey on that, that's not going to stop happening. It's going to keep happening as it's happening now." ALSO: The Walking Dead plays a key role in real-life Dirty John story, but the show won't factor in the Bravo series.
