White appears on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about the upcoming fight. Kimmel asks if he thinks Conor has a chance at all to beat Floyd Mayweather.
I do…Floyd Mayweather is going to be 41 years old this year. If there’s a kink in that armour, it has been with southpaws. Conor McGregor is a southpaw, and he hits like a truck. He’s got 12 rounds to land that punch…When he hits people they go, and if he hits Floyd, I think he will hurt him, and when he hurts people he puts them away.
Is this like a cricket team trying to win the World Series?
No, normally, when boxers fight boxers, there’s a system to it. McGregor will be completely unorthodox. It’s what makes this fight so intriguing.
On Watch What Happens Live!, Cohen asks Kim K about her relationship with celebrity stylist Monica Rose:
The entire Kardashian/Jenner clan used a stylist named Monica rose. You all recently unfollowed her on social media and are no longer associated with her. Can you give us the real reason that she is no longer in your universe?
Shit. I will say…Y’know what. I haven’t worked with her in maybe four years, so my reason is not connected with this. But I will say that I read that it was said that she was the reason for my makeover when I met Kanye. And I will say that Kanye got me a new team and that was documented….And for me that I wanted a new vibe, and Kanye wanted to give me a makeover…I just wanted a change, but I recently heard that…[As for the family], you’d have to ask Khloe, Kendall and Kylie, and the girls.
During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Efron says he is a huge UFC fan, and of McGregor. He found himself sitting next to Madonna at the McGregor-Alvarez fight.

In an interview with O’Brien on Conan, Rousey talks about how she became friends with Diesel over online gaming.
I’ve been playing Pokemon for 18 years, and that’s actually how me and Vin Diesel became friends…every night after filming we’d set up computers and like the other side of the room, and like, ‘Ok we’re going to go to this dungeon!’…I like talking to people online who have no idea who I am.
On the The Ellen Show Rousey says that she is getting ready to retire after her fight with Amanda nunes.
I am wrapping it up. This is definitely one of my last fights,’ she said of UFC 207. Everyone better watch because the show isn’t going to be around forever…I have been training twice a day since the beginning of August, so I finally feel like I am super ninja good…It’s the weeks and weeks of buildup before hand and you know you are fighting this one person. It’s like your showdown, the most important thing in your whole life and then millions of people are watching. It’s that buildup for weeks on end. If it just happened right now I wouldn’t be nervous at all,’ Ronda added. ‘It’s the waiting.
Judge Inaba is interrupted by protesters while she is giving feedback at the end of Lochte and Burke’s dance routine. Inaba:
Hey back off!
I wanted to do something I’m completely not comfortable with, and I did.
During Diaz’s appearance on Conan, O’Brien shows him comments by McGregor.
I just hope he’s not up on that stage wearing that stupid black t-shirt he’s never out of. The boy’s been wearing that same damn t-shirt for the last 20 years or something. I’m taking this contest very, very seriously. I’ve flown in specific body types to replicate Nate’s skinny, tall frame. The boy won the lotto the last time. He knows it, I know it. Well, August 20 I get my revenge and I look forward to it.
The truth came out, and the truth will come out on the 20th, when it will come out again.
White introduces the fighters for UFC 200. McGregor is not present. Diaz:
I didn’t ask for that fight, but he asked for it. And if that ain’t gonna happen, I’m going on Vacation…He’s got a lot of catching up to do, so there ain’t no time for this [media] shit. I’ve dodging all this for years, so it’s all good. Let him do his thing, get his training on, and let him fight.
Listen, I just don’t see how that’s fair. These people have come from all over the world. The fights still three months away, that’s why we do it so early so we try not to interfere with their lives. People want Conor to fight, so do the fans, so do the media, everybody..You think I don’t want Conor to fight? Of course I do. It’s not right, you can’t not show up for this stuff. [Reporter: So you’re ruling him out at this point?]. Yeah!
Hamilton presents his car’s 2016 steering wheel. He says that he helped design the wheel, cutting 250 grams by slicing off the base of the handgrips where they meet the centre puck, unnecessary due to the way he holds the wheel while racing. There’s a large central display as in previous years, buttons for brake bias, DRS, pit lane speed limiting, three manettinos for engine/fuel strategy, engine mapping, and a central multifunction dial that influences everything from tyre swaps in the pits to cruise control.
I’m really proud of it actually, because when I joined this team, I took a lot of pride in trying to work with the engineers to lose a lot of weight in the wheel.. When I joined we actually had a big steering wheel…there was no need to continue connecting the bottom of the grip to the central part of the wheel…My favorite buttons are the marker button, for any issues I have, to remind me when I come back to analyse the data; the DRS and the pit buttons, and those to adjust the braking.

These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty … these types of guys … they come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, they go back home. Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young, white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we have to deal with down the road.Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young, white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we have to deal with down the road.

He is joined by his 30 Rock co-stars. Fey:
We’re so happy that you’re OK, but we’re even happier that you’re ready to make people laugh again.

Boko Haram releases a video of a uniformed man – believed to be a police officer – being handcuffed, held at gunpoint and beheaded. The footage – released by terrorist operating in the north of Nigeria – also shows militants attacking an army barracks. The eight-minute video clip, shared on social media, is recorded in a similar style to videos released by ISIS. The video shows intense firefights in the day and night time on army barracks in Borno and Yobe. The extremists are filmed carrying AK-47s and are backed up by tanks and heavy weaponry. The footage cuts to a scene with a man dressed in uniform – believed to be a policeman – who is then held down and beheaded by three jihadis. An unidentified fighter, shown in the video with looted army weapons and ammunition, and an ISIS flag, says the footage shows Nigeria’s military has not forced Boko Haram from its positions and got them hemmed into the Sambisa Forest, as the military has claimed.
The Center for Medical Progress releases a fifth video, reportedly filmed in April at a Planned Parenthood facility in Texas. The video shows a woman identified as Melissa Farrell, director of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, discusses changing abortion procedures based on the requirements of the fetal tissue buyers.
And we’ve had studies in which the company, or in the case of the investigator, has a specific need for a certain portion of the products of conception and we bake that into our contract, and our protocol, that we follow this. So we deviate from our standard in order to do that. If we alter our process and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, then we can make it part of the budget, that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this. I mean, it’s all just a matter of line items.
The video also shows the “buyers” sifting through fetal tissue and pulling out lungs and intestines.
The footage released today doesn’t show Planned Parenthood staff engaged in any wrongdoing or agreeing to violate any legal or medical standards,” Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens said in a six-paragraph statement. Instead, the latest tape shows an extremely offensive intrusion and lack of respect for women, with footage of medical tissue in a lab. These extremists show a total lack of compassion and dignity for women’s most personal medical decisions.

Kimmel demands his guests Kaitlyn and Shawn make a solemn pledge, guaranteeing that their relationship was for real, and won’t end in another broken engagement.
We, Katilyn and Shawn B, do solemnly swear, that we are in love, that we will get married, or we will at least be together one year from today, because if we’re not, this was a huge waste of everyone’s time. If we are not still in a committed relationship on July 27, 2016, we will pay Jimmy Kimmel $1,000 which he may collect in a lump sum or over the next 30 years in monthly installments of $2.77! Amen.

Duffy appears on BBC News to talk about Entrepreneurial Spark.
We de-risk startups. We have three Hatcheries in Scotland, and we are about to open ten with NatWest and KPMG in the UK. We bring them into a space. There’s no cost for the space, so the entrepreneur keeps all that equity. We look at the mindsets and behaviours. We look at how they build teams. Their emotional intelligence and leadership. And through that 18-month program we make them investable, and it doesn’t cost them a thing…[We don’t provide funding] They have to have [their own] money to get started. But every entrepreneur thinks they need money, but what they actually need is customers, and a better validated idea.
Stewart speaks about the Charleston Church Shootings in a non-comedic opening monologue:
I didn’t do my job today. And maybe if I wasn’t nearing the end of the run or this wasn’t such a common occurrence maybe I could’ve pulled out of the spiral, but I didn’t.
If America had considered this Islamic terrorism we’ll torture people…We’ve got to do whatever we can to keep Americans safe. Nine people shot in a church, what about that? ‘Hey, what are you gonna do, crazy is as crazy is, right?’ That’s the part that I cannot for the life of me wrap my head around…The Confederate flag flies over South Carolina, and the roads are named for Confederate generals, and the white guy is the one who feels like his country is being taken away from him.

On the Today Show, Dolezal tells Lauer that she identifies as black — something she started doing at the age of five.
I was drawing self-portraits with the brown crayon instead of the peach crayon, and black curly hair. I do take exception to that because it’s a little more complex than me identifying as black or answering a question of, are you black or white?

Chafee appears on Real Time with Bill Maher: Overtime, where Maher prods him about when he’s going to announce his run for president. When Maher asks what distinguishes him from the other candidates, Chafee responds:
Certainly my record, and that is one, first of all, of high ethical standards over 30 years, as a mayor, as a governor, and as a United States senator.
Maher presses Chafee on the Clintons. Chafee cites Whitewater, “travelgate” and The Clinton Foundation.
Alexander re-records George Costanza’s ‘Greatest American Hero’ Voicemail for Dennings on The Late Late Show.
On the day of Hillary Clinton‘s presidential announcement, Chafee states that Clinton had “precious few” accomplishments as secretary of state. On Clinton’s vote for the Iraq war:
That was just a moment in time where the premise for going to Iraq was so false that there were weapons of mass destruction — she didn’t do her homework, and we live with the ramifications today…And so you may say, oh, that’s 12 years ago, but we live with it today, and it’s a big motivator for why I’m running. If you show lack of judgment, lack of doing homework then, what can we expect in the future?
Chafee says that as secretary of state:
[Clinton] was kind of a muscular, top-down, unilateral, too close to neo-cons, too Bush-like.

My name is Maisie Williams. I turn 18 on the 15th April. That means I can vote in the next months election. So can 3.3 million of you. But you know what? I’m not going to tell you what to do. People have been telling you what to do all your lives. They think that you’re self obsessed, selfie-taking generation. They’ve counted on that. They’ve kicked your future in the teeth and hoped you didn’t notice. I can smell which way the wind is blowing. I don’t need to tell any of you what to do. I just have one question – Who’s next?

Freeman appears in an election broadcast for Labour party.
We are in the run-up to a general election and you are going to hear loads of claims from people from the left, on the right, all over the place. It’s going to drive you mad. It will probably drive me mad. It boils down to a choice between a Labour government and a Conservative one…But it isn’t just a choice between two different plans, two different ways of getting the deficit down. It’s a choice between two completely different sets of values – a choice about what kind of country we want to live in.

I’ve had a heart warming time working with the kids from Idol. It’s always great to be able to share you’re experiences with such talented artists starting out on their journey.

Fey co-writes Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt with Carlock. The show, about a woman who comes to New York after spending 15 years in a cult, stars Ellie Kemper and Jane Krakowski from Fey and Carlock’s previous show 30 Rock. Fey:
My producing partner, Robert Carlock [who coproduced 30 Rock], and I wanted to write something for Ellie; she’s adorable but also has strength. We live in a strange world in which people, literally and metaphorically, like to lock up women. And we liked the idea of Ellie playing a survivor and starting over.
