    The Super Bowl is *not* a WORLD championship. All the teams are US teams. And not because they're the best (they likely are because hardly anyone else in the world gives a shit about American Football) but because no other countries compete. Same goes for the World Series. Nothing "world" about that either.

    I am an emancipated man whom served in two-branches of military service an only have the privileges of the rights of the constitution. America has went around the world fighting wars for freedom, justice and equal rights if the “GOP” doesn’t convict Mr. Trump and his followers for their open acts of treason upon the constitution, the HOUSE of GOVERNMENT and the Flag what good is the constitution. It would mean everything was a LIE THAT AMERICA STOOD for against EVIL. MB•2021®️©️™️

    Ms. Latifah is a wonderful, beautiful, talented American gem. She always makes people smile. Happy for her. And happy she got to enjoy Mother Nature in LA! Hopefully most Americans appreciated the quiet and all the nature able to "be" again.

    Denzel is the best Equalizer hands down🙌🏾! I still can’t tell what happened in all of the scenes in the first one a few because I had to turn away A LOT, and then it got to the point where I had to mute the movie because he had me shooketh! Needless to say I didn’t watch the second because because the first one was too intense! CBS need to re-air the first episode of Latifah’s show because I didn’t see it, they should not do a premiere the night of the Super Bowl. People just watched a game that lasted more than three hours!

    I used to watch the original "The Equalizer" with the late, great Edward Woodward, back in the mid-1980s. It was a TV series that ran for 4 seasons in the UK. It was made by Universal and ran on CBS in the US. I like the way Washington did the movies, and now the great Queen Latifah is rebooting it for TV! I must find out whether I can watch it in the UK.

    I'm not understanding her "you gotta fix everything, cook everything, clean everything...." thread about how COVID changes people's lives. Many people have been cooking, cleaning, fixing, and the other stuff she mentioned before COVID and most of their lives. It's called living responsibly and within one's means. Not everyone can afford take out, handymen, house cleaners, and the like. Wish she wouldn't have gone all celebrity with those comments. She is a talented performer, though and seems to be a sincerely nice person.

      Everyone doesn't have to work 16 hours a days, 6 days a week. 11 months out the year to make a living. So try not to hate on someone else success

    Actually you do it basically just play for the domestic viewers. The rest of the world still amazed of something such as “ Super Bowl, because doesn’t happen anywhere but here, playing a “sport” that is popular only here.

    Unbelievable-not a single mention of the wonderful original series or the great Edward Woodward! Very tacky, Colbert. I didn't even know there was a movie with Denzel Washington in it. Sounds like it sucks, too.

    I think promoting a narrative where someone leaves the CIA, and by extension the government, for answering to a wealthy elite rather than some internal CIA conflict is the exact thing feeding the distrust of our government that is rocking this country to it core.

    Who’s the first first person that comes to mind when you think of the Equalizer? Denzel Washington, Idris Elba, maybe Mark Wahlberg, or a number of tough people? It sure as hell isn’t Queen Latifah. Whoever thought this was a good idea should be fired.

  • tarmaque

    When _The Queen_ says "You're doing a good job, keep it up" you don't say "Thank You." You say "Yes Ma'am" and get down to business,
