DONALD TRUMP. He has finally nicknamed himself. “It’s still too early to tell what people will make of Trump’s self-chosen name, but if this is the type of material we can expect out of the Stephen K. Bannon era of the campaign… it leaves much to be desired.”

AMY SCHUMER. There is no more Inside Amy Schumer, according to Amy Schumer. “What’s unclear, if Schumer’s news is taken in earnest, is whether we actually won’t be getting any more new episodes of Inside Amy Schumer. While Schumer’s skyrocketing profile would make the show’s end unsurprising, Comedy Central already renewed the series for a fifth season back in January. That makes the question one of whether season five simply isn’t happening, or if Schumer has somehow already completed production on what will be the show’s final season (an unlikely possibility).”
