Jon Stewart’s HBO Show Could Be Here Just In Time For The November Election

It’s been one hell of an election season so far, but one thing we’ve been missing from this massive political circus is Jon Stewart’s cynical voice of reason.

Since the comedian left “The Daily Show” in 2015, we’ve been forced to face the current state of American politics (mostly) without him. But his return to the political landscape via HBO ― he signed a four-year-contract with the network last year ― may come sooner than we thought.

Casey Bloys, HBO’s programming chief, told The Hollywood Reporter Stewart will produce an animated parody show that will (hopefully) air this fall. Bloys wouldn’t provide an official premiere date but was hopeful about September or October. If the hint is actually the truth, that would mean Stewart would be back in full force just in time for the election in November. 

“I talked to Jon before this,” Bloys told THR. “He is establishing an animation studio. He wants to get material out on a daily basis. The idea is that it’s an animated parody of a cable news network in an Onion-like portal. It will be his voice, in his actual voice, and his tone.”

To clarify his comment, Bloys explained that “Onion-like” meant that there would be a written element and eventually a half-hour show on the network.

It’ll be good to have him back, because tbh, we don’t think we can get through the rest of this election without him.

Miranda Lambert Gets Teary-Eyed Singing Song She Wrote With Ex Blake Shelton

Miranda Lambert was brought to tears Friday while performing a song she co-wrote with her ex-husband, Blake Shelton.

The country star was performing in Tinley Park, Illinois, for her Keeper of the Flame tour, and when it came time to sing her 2012 single “Over You,” she was overcome with emotion. The track seemed to bring up old memories (and maybe some old feelings, too), leading Lambert to cry onstage. Instead of finishing the track herself, she let the audience sing the words back at her. 

“I told you I was a mess,” Lambert told the crowd, according to People. 

The 32-year-old singer, who’s now dating Anderson East, got candid about her emotional state and reportedly told the crowd she was having a rough night thanks to hormones and cramps

Lambert broke down a second time while singing “The House That Built Me,” according to Us Weekly. One fan in the crowd told the celebrity news magazine, “She was amazing. But emotionally unstable. Crying the whole show.”

Most fans didn’t seem to mind, though, with plenty of people taking to Twitter to praise the country star. 

If the tears prove anything, it’s that Lambert is a human who has feelings, just like the rest of us.

Lena Dunham Teases New Season Of ‘Girls’ While Rocking A Sporty Bikini

Fresh off her appearance at the Democratic National Convention, where she spoke in support of nominee Hillary Clinton, Lena Dunham seems to be getting back to work on “Girls.” 

Over the weekend, the writer and director shared a couple photos on Instagram of herself wearing a sporty bikini and an oh-so-millennial bucket hat while cruising on the water in Florida. At the same time, she teased some plot points for the new season of the HBO show. 

“#girlsdoesflorida,” she captioned one pic, while the other read, “I’m a lifestyle blogger now. People love it!!! They love the sporty lifestyle! #girlsdoesflorida.”

We have so many questions! Why do the girls go to Florida? Does this mean Hannah goes through another career change ? Will she get an Instagram husband to help her new career flourish? Or is Dunham just poking fun at the world of glamorous lifestyle bloggers on her personal account? 

If only so we can watch the self-absorbed protagonist figure out her best angles in the mirror while Hailee Steinfeld’s “I Love Myself” (or perhaps Bif Naked’s “I Love Myself Today”) plays in the background, we hope it’s the former.
