She talks about her plans to campaign for Hilary Clinton, why many female comics seem to end up alone, how Chris Rock helped her, and why she’s anticipating the inevitable backlash. “I truly feel I’m getting a lot of attention right now and it’s just a ticking time bomb.

-As if I wasn’t already going to be glued to my TV, The X-Files reboot just cast Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose as new agents.

His PR team has come out swinging, making sure there are lots of stories out there about how the divorce is not his fault.

-The VMA nominations came out today and Nicki Minaj was totally snubbed for “Feeling Myself” — according to Nicki Minaj.
-I don’t have time to watch all of this Orphan Black Comic-Con panel because of work, life, stuff, but I think Parks and Recreations’ Retta should moderate every single future TV panel based on her intros alone. Donnie IS “Captain Twerk of the Star Hips Enterprise.”
