Claire Danes says Homeland will end with Season 8, but Showtime hasn't made it official
In an interview with Howard Stern this morning, the actress was asked if Season 8 will be the end of the Showtime series, as has long been expected. She responded, "yeah, that's it." Showtime has yet to confirm that Homeland is in fact ending. Danes said she's conflicted about ending the series. "She’s a lot, this Carrie-freakin’ Mathison character," she said. Showrunner Alex Gansa has said he expects Season 8 to be his last year, which would coincide with the expiration of the casts' contracts. According to a story in The Hollywood Reporter, Showtime hasn't made a decision on the show's future, adding that "there's been talk with keeping the show going with a new showrunner and new cast." Danes also revealed to Stern that she's pregnant with her second child, but Homeland won't be impacted because the show isn't expected to go into production on Season 8 before the end of year.

Jennifer Lawrence detailed her problems with E! when Howard Stern brought up Ryan Seacrest
Lawrence seemed unaware of the sexual harassment allegations against Seacrest when Stern brought them up in an interview Wednesday morning, asking if she would shun him on the Oscars red carpet. “I can’t imagine him being sexual,” she said. When pressed, she added: "I don’t know. I mean there is a lot to think about with E!, you know?” Lawrence has supported Catt Sadler in the former E! News host's pay dispute with the entertainment network, and the two have reportedly teamed up for a #MeToo and Time's Up-themed TV docuseries. Speaking of Sadler, Lawrence said, "I have noticed that they keep cycling these women and I am going — that is just so you, is that so you don’t have to pay another women equally to Jason (Kennedy)? Is this just a way to still maintaining that you are not paying women equally?" Additionally, Lawrence said, "I have always had a problem with the Fashion Police. I don’t have a problem with talking about what women are wearing. There was a time there where, they were just mean, about people’s bodies, things you shouldn’t say.” Going back to the Seacrest allegations, Lawrence said, “I think it is scary, you know. He has not been to trial for anything. I am not a judge. I am not a jury, you know. I don’t know, that that, that is where this stuff gets tricky.”

Jon Stewart on Louis CK’s sexual misconduct: “I didn’t know. What if I did? That’s the thing that bothers me. What if I did?”
“What if I had known one of the women who is making the accusations — and I don't...and one of them came to me and said...Louis did this,” Stewart told Howard Stern on Wednesday, reports Mashable. “Would I still have worked with him?...I can't honestly answer it, and that makes me feel sh*tty." Stewart acknowledged to Stern that Jezebel was right and he was wrong when it called out The Daily Show’s “Woman Problem” back in 2010. Yet when Jezebel’s sister publication Gawker reported rumors hinting of Louis CK’s masturbatory behavior in 2012, his first instinct was to mistrust it, and the internet’s “information-laundering system.” "Now their reaction makes sense to me," Stewart said. "They're furious and they've been dealing with this for years and years. And so for me to express even my obliviousness...is an indictment."

Jon Stewart: “I think I would have phoned it in” if I stayed on The Daily Show through the Trump era
Stewart said half-jokingly to Howard Stern this morning that he got “lazy” near the end of his Daily Show run. “I think I got to a point where I kind of didn’t think I could do anything else with it,” Stewart said. “And thank God I did, because before Trump came, you need somebody who’s 32, 33, still has that type of energy — that type of stamina. That fire to go at it. I think I would have phoned it in.” Stewart adds: “I felt like it was absolutely the right time.” ALSO: Listen to Stern's full interview with Stewart.

George Takei apologizes for joking to Howard Stern about “touching men,” says he was playing a “naughty gay grandpa”
The Star Trek icon, who has been sitting in on the Stern show for a few days a year since 2006, is sorry that his Oct. 16 comments about touching men without permission were misconstrued following last week's groping allegation. Takei explains on Facebook that he was actually joking. “For decades,” Takei writes, “I have played the part of a ‘naughty gay grandpa’ when I visit Howard’s show, a caricature I now regret. But I want to be clear: I have never forced myself upon someone during a date. Sometimes my dates were the initiators, and sometimes I was. It was always by mutual consent. I see now that that it has come across poorly in the awkward sketch, and I apologize for playing along with Howard’s insinuation.”

Carnie Wilson recalled how Howard Stern fat-shamed her when he secretly weighed her for his TV show
The singer recalled on today's The Talk visiting Stern’s radio show in 1999, when it was broadcast on E! and CBS affiliates.

"He loves to fat-shame," Wilson said of the shock jock. "It's a joke to him, but it wasn't to me. It was one of the worst experiences I've ever had."

Kelly Clarkson tells Howard Stern that Avril Lavigne apologized for elbowing her in the face at the VMAs
In a thorough interview this morning with Howard Stern, Clarkson recalled that other musicians didn’t really think she paid her dues because she rose to fame on American Idol. ”I got elbowed in the face by someone I was giving an award to at the VMAs," she recalled, without revealing Lavigne’s name. But the 2002 incident is shown in a YouTube video. And Stern got Clarkson to admit it was Lavigne, who would later pen Clarkson's hit "Breakaway." Clarkson added: “But I will say this: Years later I saw her and she said, 'Oh my gosh, people keep saying I elbowed you in the face and I’m so sorry!' And I don't know... she did it... but I don't know if she felt bad about it, or she didn't mean to do it, or what... but it felt purposeful!" ALSO: Stern got Clarkson to sing “A Moment Like This.”

Ellen adds her voice to the #MeToo movement: "It is a human thing"
“I will say it out loud right now — me too,” Ellen DeGeneres said at the top of today's show. “This is not a male thing or a female thing, this is not a Hollywood thing or a political thing — it is a human thing, and it happens in the workplace, it happens in families, it happens all over the world. And we are all the same — we all want the same thing. We want respect, love and kindness. And if I could have those three things and an iPhone X, I would be complete.”
