Samantha Bee argues the importance of down ballot races this November, while Naomi Ekperigin gets a lesson in effective social media activism that deserves to go viral. Plus, Black Pumas perform!

A Night of (One) Stars
Just because awards season has gone virtual this year doesn’t mean Sam’s gonna miss out on her favorite part: the red carpet!

The Importance of Down Ballot Races Pt. 1
It’s easy to blame Trump for the current hellish state we find ourselves in. But much like his business “success”, when it comes to enacting harmful legislation, Trump couldn’t have done it alone. November is the perfect time to hold his accomplices accountable. #ExpectTheWorst

The Importance of Down Ballot Races Pt. 2
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from horror movies, it’s to always expect the worst. So when it comes to the 2020 election, voting Trump out of office won’t be enough to save our country. We have to also get rid of the monsters that lurk down the ballot! #ExpectTheWorst

From Memes To Movement: Is Instagram Activism Getting Us Anywhere?
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, many of us have become accustomed to conducting most of our lives online–including our activism! But Naomi Ekperigin wants to know how effective social media really is in creating change. According to Feminsta Jones and Talesha Wilson, we need to start thinking outside the black square!

Black Pumas Perform “Colors”!
It’s a good day to groove along to the colorful performance that Black Pumas was kind enough to give us!

John Cena and Nicole Byer Set to Host TBS’ Revival of Wipeout





John Cena and Nicole Byer Set to Host TBS’ Revival of the Renowned Extreme Obstacle Course Series WIPEOUT

Hosts Will Take the Reigns and Serve Up Comedic Commentary in the Re-Imagined Competition Series

Camille Kostek Joins Dynamic Duo as Host in the Field

CHECKOUT OUR HOST TRAINING VIDEOS HERE: JOHN CENA AND NICOLE BYER
LOS ANGELES – September 10, 2020 – Multifaceted megastar John Cena (Fast & Furious 9, The Suicide Squad) and Emmy-nominated comedian and actress Nicole Byer (Nailed It!, Girl Code) have signed on to host TBS’ revival of the adrenalizing and outrageous physical competition series Wipeout. Cena and Byer will command the hysteria of the fan-favorite series by serving up commentary tailored to the all-around hilarity and thrill of the heart-pumping competition, with Camille Kostek (I Feel Pretty) complementing their presence by serving as the entrenched Host in the Field, covering the contestants’ progress throughout each intense round.

The re-imagined series will feature new twists and elements that will push contestants’ athleticism, approach, and determination to even greater extremes, all while delivering some wildly epic fails! Each game is three rounds with each round featuring a jaw-dropping, multi-stage obstacle course with numerous strategy and decision points designed to further challenge the stamina of the competitors and deliver even more hilarious and surprising wipeouts! And of course, the iconic staple of the show – the big balls! – are returning with a vengeance.

“I couldn’t be more excited for what’s in store for this radically absurd show that has its own fair share of legendary faceplants.” said John Cena. “The power of Wipeout is its ability to gather people of all backgrounds for fast paced, physical FUN! I look forward to seeing fan responses both new and existing. This’ll be a hosting experience unlike anything I’ve ever done! I can’t wait to get started in rooting for our contestants!”

“Now more than ever we need a ton of fun and laughs,” said Nicole Byer, “and there’s nothing funnier than people falling over giant red balls. Wipeout is truly insane, and I’m tickled to be a part of this beloved show’s comeback.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to have John, Nicole and Camille take charge of this outrageously unpredictable, family-friendly competition series, said Matt Kunitz, Creator/Showrunner/Executive Producer of Wipeout. “Having a sports titan and movie star next to an Emmy-nominated comedy star, alongside a seasoned co-host, they’ll complement one another with their own fantastic qualities and humor while livening the already extreme setting of Wipeout.”

“Wipeout has always delivered a great deal of light and laughter in dark times – whether that was in 2008 when it first premiered in the midst of a massive recession or now again, in 2020,” said Corie Henson, EVP, Head of Unscripted for TNT, TBS and truTV. “This is one show that brings people together – regardless of age, race or politics. With megastar John Cena and hilarious Emmy nominee Nicole Byer, and with the help of rising star, Camille Kostek, as our host in the field, Wipeout is going to be bigger, badder and ballsier than ever before.”

Best known as the face of the WWE for more than a decade, John Cena is an actor, producer, entrepreneur, author, and philanthropist. After a hilarious turn in the film
Trainwreck, a leading role in the outrageous comedy Blockers, as well as upcoming appearances in Fast & Furious 9 and The Suicide Squad franchise, he has quickly become one of Hollywood’s funniest actors.

Actress, comedian, writer and podcaster Nicole Byer is one of the most versatile voices in comedy. She hosts the Emmy-nominated reality competition baking series Nailed It!, recently making history by becoming the first black woman ever to be nominated in the category of “Outstanding Host for A Reality or Competition Program.”

Actress, model and host Camille Kostek has been featured in a number of high-profile modeling campaigns, including the sought-after cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue from 2019. Kostek has performed the duties of host/co-anchor on a number of network programs and radio stations, and most recently made her film debut in the comedy I Feel Pretty. She can be seen in the upcoming film Free Guy.

LOS ANGELES – September 9, 2020 – TBS has ordered a full season of Go-Big Show, an hour-long extreme talent competition starring celebrity judges Snoop Dogg, Rosario Dawson, Jennifer Nettles and “The American Nightmare” Cody, and hosted by popular comedian Bert Kreischer. The show’s pick-up was announced by the host and judges this evening from the set in Macon, GA and broadcast simultaneously across TBS, TNT and truTV, marking the three networks’ inaugural roadblock announcement.

Go-Big Show showcases supersized talents on a scale never before seen on television. Featuring monster trucks, alligator trainers, stunt archery and other radical feats, the program celebrates daring acts alongside personal, behind-the-scenes stories from the challengers as they battle head-to-head to impress the judges and advance toward the finale’s ultimate $100,000 prize.

Go-Big Show has begun production on 10 episodes at the Macon Coliseum, where contenders and staff are operating under strict Covid-19 safety protocols and isolating together for the duration of production. TBS is producing this series in consultation with local authorities, the unions and medical experts. The network’s first priority is the health and safety of employees, production partners, cast and crew.
While the 7,000 seats within the arena will remain empty during tapings, the show’s lively indoor festivities will extend outdoors to TV’s first-ever, interactive drive-in audience. Spectators will cheer for their favorite competitors in real time during a socially-distanced tailgate party just outside the venue which follows Macon-Bibb County Commission’s Covid-safety mandates.

“Go-Big Show celebrates unique, untraditional and unforgettable American talent,” said Corie Henson, EVP and head of unscripted programming for TBS, TNT and truTV. “Each contestant brings tremendous heart and swagger, which also perfectly describes Bert and our judges, a dream team of larger-than-life talent.”

“We are going bigger and bolder with our unscripted line-up at TBS to provide more of the content that viewers love from our platform,” said Brett Weitz, General Manager, TNT, TBS and truTV. “Go-Big Show not only delivers on this promise with a thrilling new take on talent competition, but it’s also another example of our innovative spirit as we continue to create brand-defining, must-watch television.”

Debuting on TBS in 2021, Go-Big Show is produced by Propagate and Matador Content, a Boatrocker Company. The series is executive produced by Todd Lubin and Jay Peterson of Matador Content; Howard T. Owens, Ben Silverman, and Greg Lipstone of Propagate Content; showrunner Conrad Green; Bert Kreischer, Snoop Dogg and Ted Chung for Snoopadelic Films.

Saturday, September 26 at 10:30am ET/PT
Jackie Chan, Chris Tucker. As the FBI scrambles to save the life of the kidnapped daughter of the Chinese Consul, the diplomat hires trusted Hong Kong police detective Lee to find the girl. Unwilling to have their investigation invaded by a meddling outsider, the FBI assigns a rogue LAPD detective to keep Detective Lee away from the case at any cost. Carter, the detective, covertly embarks on a one-man crusade to solve the case, having first distracted Lee. Within hours, Carter realises he has greatly underestimated his Hong Kong counterpart, who has seen through his ruse, given Carter the slip, and landed in the middle of the FBI’s investigation. Both excluded by the FBI, these two cops from very different worlds must join forces to save the young girl.

RUSH HOUR 2
Saturday, September 26 at 12:30pm ET/PT
Jackie Chan, Chris Tucker. Chief Inspector Lee of the Hong Kong Police and LAPD detective James Carter go to Hong Kong on a much needed vacation. Carter is looking forward to discovering the city for the first time. But when they arrive, they discover a bomb has exploded in the American Embassy, killing two U.S. customs agents who had been investigating a counterfeiting ring. The Hong Kong police suspect that Triad crime lord Ricky Tan is behind the blast. Inspector Lee is assigned to crack the case, much to the chagrin of Carter who is annoyed as he feels his vacation slipping away. But for Lee the case is personal — Tan was once his father’s police partner and played a direct role in his death. The two cops set off in pursuit of Tan, but this time around it is Detective Carter who is a fish out of water and Lee now has the chance to teach him some lessons. But of course, as the pair chase Tan from Hong Kong to Los Angeles and beyond, Carter has a few things to teach the locals as well.

Jackie Chan, Chris Tucker. In the heart of Paris lies a deadly secret. Half a world away in Los Angeles, Ambassador Han is about to disclose it. In his possession is explosive new evidence about the inner workings of the Triads–the most powerful and notorious crime syndicate in the world. The Ambassador has discovered the identity of Shy Shen, the very crux of the wide-ranging crime ring, and he’s about to reveal it to the World Criminal Court–until he is silenced by an assassin’s bullet. The Triads will go to any lengths to make sure their secrets stay buried, and there’s only one hope for stopping them. LAPD Detective Carter and Chinese Inspector Lee are back–back where they don’t belong. The unlikely duo is headed to the City of Lights to stop a global criminal conspiracy and save the life of an old friend, Ambassador Han’s now-grown daughter, Soo Yung. They don’t know the city, the language or even exactly what they’re looking for, but their race will take them across the city, from the depths of the Paris underground to the breathtaking heights of the Eiffel Tower, as they fight to outrun the world’s most deadly criminals and save the day.
