This California debut novelist just got longlisted for Britain’s Booker Prize

“How Much of These Hills Is Gold,” the debut novel from C Pam Zhang, received rave reviews, was named the first selection in Goop’s book club and landed the author an appearance on “Late Night with Seth Myers.” And just this week, the book was named one of the 13 contenders on the Booker Prize longlist, the prestigious British award that only began allowing Americans to compete in 2014. But in some ways, the reality of the book’s release hadn’t quite hit Zhang yet. “It came out while the area wa...

RuPaul says the “drag fun ended” when he got famous

“When I got famous, that’s when the drag fun ended for me, honestly. I couldn’t terrorize y’all’s neighborhoods anymore because I became the face of drag! I’ve always been ambitious and I’ve always liked to look under the hood to see how things actually worked. So I knew that if I was was going to do drag and make it above 14th Street so to speak, I had to calculate the image. What I did was I had one part Dolly Parton to two parts Cher, one part David Bowie and a big heaping spoonful of Dian...

Comedian Maria Bamford tried to get a restraining order against Donald Trump

In this clip from Late Night with Seth Myers, comedian Maria Bamford talks about how she tried to take out a restraining order against "the unregistered sex offender in the White House." She said she felt unsafe having such a person in the Oval Office. She says she "went down to the local courthouse. Saw a judge within a half hour. He denied me. Ultimately a useless gesture that didn't further the conversation in any way and wasted the time of caring professionals." There are some other funny...

Ever since Lin-Manuel Miranda banded together with Mark Hamill, Guillermo del Toro, Sean Astin, and Seth Myers to form the most unlikely super group to save Brooklyn Nine-Nine from cancellation, fans wondered if the Mary Poppins Returns star would make an appearance on the beloved NBC comedy series.

Scarlett Johansson Is Interested In Running For Public Office

Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow training might come in handy pretty soon. The actor, who is promoting the new live-action adaptation of the anime classic Ghost in the Shell, told CBS News that she might dabble in politics after this whole action hero thing settles down. While backflips and international espionage may be impressive additions to her résumé, we think that voters are probably more interested in what she has to say than how many bad guys she can mow down.Johansson expressed her int...

Keri Russell Has Some Thoughts On Matthew Rhys' Prosthetic Penis On Girls

One of the most memorable and talked-about moments on HBO's Girls, ever — and that's saying a lot — involved one Matthew Rhys and one prosthetic penis.

Friday Talking Points [418] -- President-Shaming Might Just Work

OK, that’s a rather unusual title, but you’ll have to wait until the talking points part of the program for us to address it.

First, though, we’ve got to get through the news of the week and handing out our weekly awards.
