Sarah Silverman has a new weekly talkshow on Hulu. It's pretty interesting. So far, the first two episodes both included segments where Sarah hangs out with a Trump-supporting family in the South. Those are kind of fascinating, and against all odds, it appeared that common ground was found. Obviously not on everything, but enough to make you hopeful. The third episode—just aired—is a lot more scripted. Except the Tig Nataro segment where Tig tries to learn how to chant like an auctioneer. Comedy gold. The rest gets kind of Fernwood Tonight, and by that I mean brilliant. [more inside]
