CNN’s Jake Tapper Joins Seth Meyers, NJ Gov. Chris Christie Sits Down with Jimmy Fallon

Looking for a laugh? Look no further than tonight’s comedy lineup where CNN host of “The Lead” Jake Tapper will sit down with Seth Meyers for his “Late Night” program. No clue yet as to what the topic of conversation will be but expect some jabs at the news anchor’s media career and March coverage of the missing plane.

Also running the circuit – Chris Christie will join Jimmy Fallon as a guest on “Tonight.” The New Jersey Governor has been a joke line for Fallon, most recently surrounding criticism of Bridgegate. On past programs, Fallon quipped ”Christie was furious when they blocked the bridge because he thought they said they were blocking the fridge” and “Christie apologized and promised the bridge will stay open for cars, trucks, and the buses he’s throwing his staff under.”

“Late Night with Seth Meyers” airs on NBC at 12:35am. “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” precedes Meyers at 11:35pm, also on NBC.

As grows Americans’ dislike of Congress, so does the resemblance between one CNN correspondent and another top Hollywood actress.

Erin McPike, meet Jennifer Aniston. Jennifer, meet Erin (As if you don’t know each other already…It’s obvious you’re sisters.).

The notion came to us one afternoon when we were flipping through the channels, watching “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” covering an important and timely current event, and a rerun of “Friends” we’ve seen at least five times.

Help us cast the DC version of “Friends!” We’re looking for Separated at Birth suggestions for Monica Geller (Courteney Cox), Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow), Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc), Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), and Dr. Ross Geller (David Schwimmer). Send yours to fishbowlnick@gmail.com.

Tapper Takes Morgan’s Time Slot for a Test Drive

With “Piers Morgan Live” now but a distant memory, the competition for Morgan’s old slot has begun in earnest. Tonight,  Jake Tapper starts a week of double shift duty -he will host both a 4:00 pm and a 9:00 pm version of “The Lead” -in an effort to show that he can be the prime-time star Jeff Zucker is looking for.

While we hear that Tapper is the favorite for the gig, Zucker will also reportedly try out Michael SmerconishBill Weir, and Don Lemon in the hour.

After each potential host has auditioned, Zucker will then subject them all to endurance trials and a gross-out eating contest before forcing them to live together in a house for one month. Only then will Americans have the chance to vote for their favorite.

At least, we’re pretty sure that’s how it works.

Dan Savage on his HUMP! Tour, Sex in DC, and the GOP

Screen Shot 2014-03-20 at 13.24.15Earlier today, FishbowlDC had the opportunity to speak with love and sex advice columnist Dan Savage, in advance of the DC stop of his amateur adult film festival, HUMP!. The show premiers tonight and runs through Saturday at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company.

HUMP! films take a nuanced approach to amateur adult films by using parody, documentary themes, animation, and more to give viewers an artistic look at the genre. The festival was created in 2005 by the “Savage Love” author as a sex-positive and creative outlet for amateur pornographers.

Eight screenings are planned for its visit to DC, including Thursday, March 20 and Friday, March 21 at 8 and 10 pm and at 4, 6, 8, and 10 pm Saturday, March 22. Tickets may be purchased at http://humptour.strangertickets.com. The festival’s DC stop is presented by the Washington City Paper, which runs “Savage Love” weekly and online.

Read on for our Q&A with Savage on the origins of the tour, what we can expect, and naturally, his answers to Push/F@#k/Marry with Fox News’ Bret Baier, CNN’s Jake Tapper, and MSNBC’s Chris Matthews.

Jake Tapper, A Better Human Than You, Adopts a Soldier

Jake Tapper and the crew at “The Lead” have adopted a soldier and are sending him a care package. Makes ya feel warm and fuzzy because there is still some good left in the world / terrible because you will not do this, probably.

The adoptee is an 18 year old (soon to be 19 year old) from Pennsylvania whose tour will be up in November. Tapper says the group Homefront Hugs asked him to adopt the soldier and they “seemed like a cool and heartfelt program” so he agreed.

 

Jake Tapper Can’t Figure Out Why Women Would Disagree With Other Women

Jake Tapper interviewed Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) on CNN’s “The Lead” today about her legislation to put sexual assault cases in the military under civilian control. What struck us about the interview, is how Tapper seemed to get stuck on the whole “women disagreeing with women” concept.

Of the 4 questions Tapper asked  the Senator, three were along the lines of, “But if you’re right, then why do other women disagree with you?’

Question 1) “But there is this independent panel, as you know, chaired by a woman with a mostly female composition that did not find evidence it would increase reporting. So is there evidence you have that taking it out of the chain of command will protect the victim, increase reporting or increase punishments?”

Question 2) “As you know, your chief rival, probably, I think that’s fair to say, in this is fellow Democratic woman, Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri.  She disagrees with you.  She has competing legislation. Why is she wrong?”

Question 3) “I believe you have 55 public supporters in the Senate for your legislation. But is it complicated at all for your cause, the fact that your chief rival in this is a — is a fellow Democratic woman senator?”
