Trevor Noah tweets draw fire

A day after Trevor Noah was declared the new host of "The Daily Show," complete with the blessing of the exiting Jon Stewart, graphic tweets targeting women, Jews and Middle America are causing a social media backlash.

By Tuesday, Trevor Noah was a trending topic on Twitter as he drew fire for jokes described as tasteless, hateful — and unfunny. Roseanne Barr was among those calling out the 31-year-old South African comic, who has an international following and two million Twitter followers.

"U should cease sexist & anti semitic 'humor' about jewish women & Israel," she tweeted late Monday.

Noah's controversial tweets were posted between 2009 and 2014.

In 2009 he wrote, "Almost bumped a Jewish kid crossing the road. He didn't look b4 crossing but I still would hav felt so bad in my german car!"

A 2012 post derides "jewish chicks." Another one from 2011 jokes about "a hot white woman."

In a post from 2011, he writes, "Oh yeah the weekend. People are gonna get drunk & think that I'm sexy...

'The Walking Dead' recap: Rick wins, but who loses?

For the fifth season finale of "The Walking Dead," Rick finally won his power struggle with Deanna for the hearts and minds of Alexandria. On the one hand, yay, Rick won't be cast out into the wilderness. But judging by his very first act as leader -- shooting Pete the accidentally killing abuser -- doesn't bode well for the path of civilization and peace.

Of anyone in the crew, it seems Michonne understood most deeply the dangers and sad reality of Rick's way, when we saw her stoically take her katana blade down from the mantel where she had previously hoped it would stay. She saw there was a chance for them to survive without their weapons, but that window seems to have closed. At least for awhile.

Most symbolically, the other active voice for peace and forgiveness, Deanna's husband, Reg, was the victim of Pete's accidental slaying, getting his throat sliced open during a confrontation at Rick's trial. With Reg gone and Deanna without any sort of grounding, it looks like she'll be...

'Once Upon a Time': Maleficent, the author and 'Best Laid Plans' arrive

"Once Upon a Time" started with a boy, Henry, figuring out that the characters in a book he was given, fairy tale characters, were actually real and living in his town. It's that book now, and the author of it, that's driving the character motivations -- and now the author has been found.

But, we'll get to that. First a journey to the past. After a premonition by an evil queen, Snow White and Prince Charming are determined to make sure that their child is good, and will not be an instrument of evil.  So, of course, you hunt for a famed unicorn to get some clarity. Touching the horn of a unicorn allows them to get a glimpse of their child's future. Charming got a good glimpse -- a cute baby, nothing out of the ordinary. Snow did not get that glimpse. Instead, Snow met the teenage Emma Swan -- and teen Emma reaches into Snow's chest and pulls out her heart, then turns it into dust. But she's her mother! "I don't care," Emma says.

The heroes are trying to figure out what it means to have...

Trevor Noah set to replace Jon Stewart on 'The Daily Show'

Trevor Noah, a 31-year-old comedian from South Africa who has contributed to "The Daily Show" a handful of times in recent months, will become Jon Stewart's replacement as host, Comedy Central announced Monday.

Noah was chosen a little more than a month after Stewart unexpectedly announced he was leaving "The Daily Show" following 16 years as the show's principal voice.

New Jersey native Stewart is being replaced by the son of a black South African mother and white European father. Noah has an international presence, and hosted a late-night talk show in South Africa, "Tonight With Trevor Noah."

Noah, who has appeared on Jay Leno and David Letterman, was the subject of a 2011 documentary film by David Paul Meyer, "You Laugh but It's True," which followed his career in post-apartheid South Africa.

He will join Larry Wilmore, a writer-comedian who replaced Stephen Colbert in January in the half-hour slot following "The Daily Show." When Noah takes over, Comedy Central will have completely...

'Scandal' recap, 'Put a Ring On It'

So, remember that time that Cyrus fell for the spy/male escort Elizabeth North hired to dig up dirt on him and then found out he was a spy and was forced to get engaged to him in order to avoid a major political sex scandal? Well, "Scandal" finally did, too.

Olivia is woken from an intense nightmare (more on that later) by the news that Michael, the man to whom Cyrus is reluctantly betrothed, just got caught fooling around with another man in a club called Gentleman John's. There are some pretty incriminating Instagram photos. This could ruin Cyrus, who has pushed the wedding back four times. His disdain for Michael is still fresh as the day it was born and this recent drama is not helping matters.

Olivia's plan of attack? To have a beautiful, heart-wrenching wedding at the White House. They can't ask Fitz to sign off on it because he's trying to pass some important bill and needs the Tea Party's support. So Olivia thinks of another solution: Mellie. Due to the fact that Olivia is...
