Among the many opportunities afforded by the confluence of Peak Comedy and Peak TV is the fast track offered to young and hungry talents. The space between Broad City’s earliest incarnation as a web series and a five-season Comedy Central show was a matter of a few years, not the dozen it might have taken with traditional gatekeepers. Rachel Bloom went from singing about dick pics on YouTube to winning a Golden Globe in less than half a decade.
The audacious experiment that is Star Trek: Discovery wrapped up its first, short batch of nine episodes Sunday in suitably climactic fashion: Villains were defeated; cliff-hangers established; coercive sex with a Klingon awkwardly and obliquely portrayed. CBS All Access viewers will have to wait until January to have their plot questions answered, of which the finale leaves plenty: Did the Discovery just jump to an alternate dimension?
Tiffany Haddish didn’t need to host Saturday Night Live to validate her stratospheric year, but the comic clearly enjoyed having the show as a platform for her victory lap. Of the season’s five hosts to date, Haddish seemed the most overjoyed to be in Studio 8H — even though, as she admitted in her monologue, Haddish wasn’t in SNL’s target demographic growing up.
@zinoman@soniasaraiya@MarkHarrisNYC I'd put it like this: you could argue the fundamental thesis of BT is "this family is nontraditional but beautiful in its own way" (except not that hacky, bc Adlon); that's not the equivalent core of LOUIE
@soniasaraiya@zinoman@MarkHarrisNYC Also, I wouldn't describe parenting on BETTER THINGS as a burden to the same degree it is on LOUIE. I think Adlon's vision of single parenthood is much more celebratory, if realistic about the frustrations.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
