Republican front-runner Donald Trump has come under fire for comments he made about requiring Muslims in the United States to register in a national database, telling a reporter, “I would certainly like to implement it. Absolutely.”

Trump tried to back away from those comments on Friday, suggesting on Twitter that “I didn’t suggest a database - a reporter did.” But that didn’t stop Bill Maher from blasting the outspoken presidential nominee on his HBO show.

“He floated the idea of closing down mosques, but he’s going to do it his way: he’s going to buy them, turn them into casinos, and then slide them into bankruptcy,” Maher said during Friday night's "Real Time." “He’s kind of walking this back, but he was talking about this yesterday—setting up different places across the country for every Muslim to register so they can be tracked. This is going to take a lot of manpower. It sounds like we’re going to have to hire Mexicans!”

December is looking pretty hot for NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

They announced their hosts and musical guests on Twitter Tuesday afternoon and they might have saved the best for last.

Bill Maher talks about the deadly terrorist attacks on Paris during a live broadcast of "Real Time with Bill Maher" on (HBO)

Friday night, ISIS terrorists launched a coordinated attack in Paris that massacred at least 127 people, and injured more than 200 more.

During a live broadcast, “Real Time with Bill Maher” host Bill Maher asked a panel, consisting of Dylan Ratigan, Michael Steele and Jay Leno, “I’m going to ask you this question that people asked after 9/11, because I don’t think we still know the answer: Why do they hate us?”

Ratigan, the only panelist to speak up, brought up the United States’ ties with Saudi Arabia as one reason Islamic Terrorists are angry with western countries.

Another crime show is coming to a living room near you. This time Wilmington, Delaware will be the set for “Murder Town,” reports

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time the small city has been pinned with that term. In December 2014, Newsweek published an article titled, “Murder Town USA (aka Wilmington Delaware)” which extensively detailed the crime and violence in the city.

ABC has only ordered a pilot, which Jada Pinkett Smith will star as a district attorney in the drama.

Michael Keaton appeared on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Monday, Nov. 9.

Maybe Michael Keaton was a bit perturbed that the gentleman waiting on him at the cellphone store would rather watch “Spider-Man” than notice that he was standing in front of Batman for heaven’s sake!

Whatever the reason, that cellphone cashier may have sparked the next great battle of the superheroes.

While on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Keaton recalled that rather than helping fix his shattered screen, the worker looking at Keaton’s phone was more enthralled with the movie on the screen across the store, an installment of “Spider-Man,” than waiting on his equally super customer.

Kevin Hart was Trevor Noah’s first guest as the new host of “The Daily Show.” To commemorate the honor, Hart brought Noah a gift: a box of ties.

“I’m a classy guy!” the pint-sized Philadelphian comedian said. Hart visited the show to promote his international tour and the release of his new action-comedy, “Ride Along 2,” both debuting in January 2016.

The two comedians bonded over Hart’s accomplishments — Noah called him a comedic rockstar — and Hart divulged how to tell jokes to a crowd of over 50,000, like he did when he sold out Lincoln Financial Field in August.

Kate McKinnon plays Hillary Clinton in a "Saturday Night Live" skit. (NBC Screenshot)

In anticipation of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign announcement, expected literally any minute now, “Saturday Night Live” opened with comedian Kate McKinnon as Clinton, charged with making a campaign announcement video via social media.

The predictable Clinton jokes abound—Clinton comes off as hilariously overbearing, power hungry and hard, when her aid asks her to delete something, Clinton responds “I know a thing or two about that, right?” alluding to the recent email ordeal. And, of course, hubby Bill, played by Daryl Hammond, drops by for a Monica Lewinsky joke or two.

Satiate your craving for Clinton’s soon-to-come presidential bid announcement with this parody video.
