Will Stephen Colbert ask Bill Clinton about Monica Lewinsky and the #MeToo movement?
The former president, in promoting his The President is Missing novel he co-authored with James Patterson, has already made headlines when asked about his 1998 scandal by CBS Sunday Morning and NBC's Today. As Buzzfeed points out, there will likely be more #MeToo questions. Clinton is scheduled to appear on Colbert's Late Show on Tuesday, where the question about Lewinsky and the #MeToo movement might be broached.

Alec Baldwin says SNL should get somebody else to do Trump full-time
During an appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan this morning, Baldwin had a "no comment" response to speculation that SNL's Sopranos-themed season finale cold open could be the last we see of his President Trump. But when the Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest pressed him, Baldwin seemed to hint he might be done with the character, according to The Daily Beast. “It does crash every weekend you have with your kids,” Baldwin said. “I enjoy doing it, but what’s going to happen in the future? I don't know where I’m going to working, where I’m going to be.” He said The Sopranos series finale ending "could be" foreshadowing, “but who knows what’s going to happen, if I do it again or don’t do it again.” But then he added in a telling statement: “They should get somebody who can do it all the time.”

"People are gonna say, ‘Oh, you’re a talk show host, shut up,'" the Live! co-host said this morning in reaction to the mass high school shooting in Parkland, Florida. "In this moment, I am a mom of three kids that go to school and I had to talk my kids off a ledge this morning because they were afraid to go to school." Ripa added: "The fact that our country has such unparalleled mass shooter violence is staggering to me...So somebody needs to have a conversation that is larger than in this moment, and again, I just say it as a concerned citizen and parent and human being that something needs to change, there needs to be a bigger, better dialogue because we are failing in this area."

E! concludes Ryan Seacrest investigation, finding “insufficient evidence” of misconduct
Seacrest first revealed the misconduct investigation in a statement released last November, saying that a wardrobe stylist had filed a complaint saying he “behaved inappropriately” a decade ago. No details of the alleged misconduct came out, though Seacrest said he'd fully cooperate with the investigation. "E! has now concluded the investigation into allegations regarding Ryan Seacrest,” an E! spokesperson said today. “The investigation, conducted by outside counsel, found insufficient evidence to support the claims against Seacrest and therefore could not be substantiated. E! is committed to providing a safe working environment where everyone is treated with respect and dignity.”
