Jon Stewart mocks Fox News outrage over American Sniper 'snub'

Comments +

Jon Stewart joked on Wednesday night that 16 years of hate-watching Fox News had aged him dramatically, making him look much older than his 52 years. But he’s still got his fastball when Fox says something to raise his ire.

'Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number' gets a release date

The Fast & Furious franchise races its way into Forza Horizon 2

Comments +

As successful as the Fast & Furious film franchise has been over the past several years, it has yet to stage a similar renaissance in the video game world.

Johnson replied by reverting to her teenage self and scoffing at her mother: “All right, you don’t have to see it,” she said, petulantly.
