Tim Allen on Hollywood’s Anti-Trump Thought Police: It’s ‘Like ’30s Germany’

Tim Allen opened up briefly about what it means to be a conservative in Hollywood in 2017 during an interview with late-night host Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night, explaining that one must be “real careful” in talking about President Donald Trump or else risk being beaten up.

“You’ve gotta be real careful around here. You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes,” the 63-year-old Last Man Standing star told Kimmel when asked about his attendance at Trump’s inauguration in January.

“This is like ’30s Germany. I don’t know what happened,” he added. “If you’re not part of the group, ‘you know what we believe is right,’ I go, ‘Well, I might have a problem with that.’”

Mike Connors, ‘Mannix’ Star, Dies at 91

LOS ANGELES — Mike Connors, who starred as a hard-hitting private eye on the long-running television series “Mannix,” has died. He was 91.

The actor died surrounded by family Thursday afternoon at a Los Angeles hospital from complications of leukemia that had been diagnosed a week earlier, said his son-in-law, Mike Condon.

“Mannix” ran for eight years on CBS beginning in 1967. Viewers were intrigued by the tall, smartly dressed, well-spoken detective who could mix it up with the burliest of thugs and leap on the hood of a racing car to prevent an escape. Episodes normally climaxed with a brawl that left the culprits bruised and beaten.

‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 7 Release Date: July 16th 2017

Game of Thrones season 7 will premiere in the summer, and the cold weather in the show will set the tone for what’s likely to be a darker and more violent season than is typical[/caption]

The hard days of winter are nearly upon us now in the real world, and Game of Thrones season 7 filming is well underway. Because this season is the first one to take place primarily during the winter, with filming adjusted accordingly, the Game of Thrones season 7 release date is going to be later than ever. What’s more, we have a shorter season to look forward to as the show slowly winds down to its conclusion. The long wait for the short reward continues.

Florence Henderson Passes

Florence Henderson Passes at the age of 82

Florence Henderson who began her career as an ingénue soprano in stage musicals in the 1950s but made a more lasting impression on television, as the perky 1970s sitcom mom on “The Brady Bunch,” died on Thursday in Los Angeles. She was 82.

Her death was confirmed by David Brokaw, her publicist. He said that she died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and that her family said the cause was heart failure.

“She was quite active until she started not feeling well several days ago,” Mr. Brokaw said. “It was felt that she would just bounce back from it.”

Ms. Henderson was making a film in Norway in 1969 when she was asked to appear in the pilot episode of “The Brady Bunch,” an unapologetically upbeat comedy about a widow with three daughters who meets, marries and makes a sunny suburban California home with a widower who has three sons.
