If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/19/18

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Phoebe’s Choice

When Samantha Bee was not hired to take over The Daily Show, I boycotted that show for a whole year. Fortunately in the interim time, they gave her her own weekly comedy news show, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. Now in its hilarious third season, I am excited for tonight’s Christmas on I.C.E. Special.

Last week she started with a segment on Trump’s No Call No Show at the White House last week, a new habit he is developing. As she pointed out, it takes a special kind of lazy to not get to work when you work from the home. The second third of the show was devoted to a new streaming phone app called Fox Nation that is launching soon. It looks predictably insane and nowhere near as fun as DCU. She harped on Judge Jeanie’s “10 Minutes of Justice” show that is only seven-and-a-half minutes on average.

She then appeared as “Sam Bee from 2068,” and she was back from the future to warn us that democracy died in 2018. She was referring to the autocratic power grab that the soundly defeated GOP in Michigan, Florida, Ohio, & Wisconsin are making. The politicians that are voted out made last-minute changes to the law that stole from the people the will in government that their vote is supposed to give them. Before zapping back through time, she warned that Ted Cruz’s beard would create Skynet and cause the Apocalypse.

Lastly, Ashley Nicole Black did a podcast on a TV show, which was weird, but she interviewed Stacy Abrams in the process, so that was cool. Together they covered the voter suppression that cost Abrams the governorship in Georgia. It was funny and cute as this show usually is.

On tonight’s episode, “Christmas on I.C.E.,” join Samantha Bee for a less-godless-than-the-usual-liberal Christmas variety spectacular with all the traditional trimmings: music, laughter, joy, deep rage that the administration is separating migrant families, and gingerbread. And did we mention that the whole thing is on ice? Your move, John Legend! But also, good tidings to you.

To see all the fun, tune in to TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching the new Vikings!
