Tim Allen says his Last Man Standing character is "probably pro-Trump," but the show planned for a Hillary Clinton presidency
Allen addressed his character's politics hours after Fox said that Last Man Standing wouldn't immediately reveal whether he is a Trump supporter. “This guy’s a practical guy… if it’s helping his business, I think he’s probably pro-Trump. (But) he probably doesn't defend him," Allen said at the TV press tour while promoting his sitcom's Fox revival. Allen also admitted that he and the writers were disappointed that Hillary Clinton lost. “We had a bank of stuff” already written for a Clinton presidency, he said, adding jokingly: "pantsuit stuff." Allen emphasized that Last Man Standing isn't necessarily a conservative sitcom. “We want both sides to think it’s funny," he said.
- Allen weighed in on Roseanne Barr's firing from Roseanne: "They had to do what they had to do and it’s their decision," but: "It’s a very icy time. I’ve been a comedian for 38 years and I’ve never seen it, like Lenny Bruce said at the Purple Onion, ‘We’ve gone backwards.’ There are things you can’t say. There are things you shouldn’t say. Who makes up these rules? And as a stand-up comic, it’s a dangerous position to be in because I like pushing buttons. It’s unfortunate.”"

Margaret Atwood says The Handmaid's Tale would've still worked if Hillary Clinton was president
"It would have worked as a show, but it wouldn’t have worked the same way," says the author, who says she's too old to be surprised by Donald Trump's victory. "Of course not. You always view these things through the lens of events that have taken place. Charles Lindbergh seemed like a possibility for president of the United States in the 1930s. But in 1942, he wasn’t anymore. Why? Because the United States was in World War II and he was a fascist." ALSO: Atwood offers the controversial opinion that the 9/11 hijackers "got the idea from Star Wars."

Grammys panned for sloppy camerawork and awkward transitions from safe to riskier material
The 2018 Grammys struggled being back at Madison Square Garden after 15 years away, and the entire broadcast was so off that the person who got the most screentime other than host James Corden was Sting, “who kept turning up over and over again, any time the show needed to stuff the ‘this is getting a little too dangerous’ genie back into the bottle,” according to Vox’s Caroline Framke and Todd VanDerWerff. They add: “In particular, the show’s choice to essentially silo all political messaging into one 20-minute section in the middle of the production felt like a network note, as if CBS itself had descended to say, ‘Let’s not scare off Trump voters with a bunch of business about immigration and men’s sexual misconduct.’ Indeed, the awkward, whiplash-inducing transitions from relatively safe material to riskier material felt very CBS — since the network is, after all, America’s most staid broadcaster.”
