Oh, no. Not Common. I'm so sick of seeing his face everywhere.  Oh, well. Guess I'll skip that interview.

I believe Obama's interview with Samantha has already been done, so he'd have time to spare with Trevor if he so chooses.

Obama used to do tons of pop culture interviews--on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, on late night TV, on The View, etc. I know he's busy, but I hope he isn't thinking that he has no f***s left for TV interviews.

He was on Kimmel's show this week and he seemed to be still enthusiastic for interviews. When Jimmy said good-bye, Obama said he and Michelle would still be around even after he leaves office, and he hoped he'd be invited back even after he was no longer president. I am very hopeful that he will be a guest on TDS at some point, hopefully both sooner and later.

Every week there's been a TBA I've made some mention of hoping it's Hillary and I have been disappointed every time, so I've given up hoping!

It's interesting that Hillary has not appeared on any late night shows in the election run-up. She was on "Ellen" recently, and did "Kimmel" back in August and "Tonight Show" in September. But that seems like ages ago in this fast-moving election cycle. President Obama appeared on "The Daily Show" just a couple weeks before the 2012 election.

Jeff Ross was on last month!!! Sept. 6. I wonder if they were trying to score a big guest and it fell through? It seems very odd. It's not like there aren't a lot of potential last minute guests around in NYC.

As little as I wanted to see him, I think he did fit on the show pretty well, what with his gig being an insult writer for President Trump.

Is it Toni or Tomi?  I wonder if TN will be able to get any sort of coherent, cogent answer from her, or if it'll all be blather and bluster.

I'm trying to figure out what's the point of having Lahren on.  Its not like those that watch her are ever going to change their mind by some witty or insightful question/response by Trevor (and I'm not convinced he's good enough to come up with something).  She's not going to change her mind either, nor is anyone who's a regular TDS viewer.  She's essentially an internet troll that got TV time.  Why give her  and her ilk more?  This is all part of the "normalizing" of that attitude and viewpoint.

So Trevor is interviewing Obama in the White House. Will TN be in the White House and that be the whole show or will it be a skype thing? Any guesses?

I wonder if TN could've dreamed during his childhood that he would one day interview POTUS.

If Thursday is not Jon Stewart or Trump...

JS hasn't made an appearance since Trump won that I can remember and I feel like we are owed one. And I'll just like to see Trump and TN spar.

So it's announced. The guests 1/5 will be Key and Peele doing Obama and his anger interpreter Luther. Should be good.

David Fahrenthold has been doing fantastic work trying to track Trump's alleged charity donations.

Well, he didn't because he didn't find any and we all know Trump is the biggest donor ever and a great guy, fantastic guy. Bad journalism. Fake News. Sad!

The guests for this week weren't announced until today, so maybe they're trying to book more newsworthy guests who can respond to breaking news? 

Fulton & Martin were also scheduled to appear on "The View" today.

With how Teen Vogue has been outpacing much of the corporate media in providing actual journalism since the election, I'm looking forward to that one.
