Daily Shot With Ali Wentworth
Have you complained about millennials lately? Twenty-to-35-year-olds have been called "the laziest generation." Alicia Menendez, a millennial and host of "Alicia Menendez Tonight" on Fusion, stopped by "Daily Shot" to talk about the top five misconceptions about her generation. 1. Millennials are lazy. "We all got out of college and there weren't jobs," Alicia says about the poor state of the market, specifically for entry-level positions. "The fact that we're unemployed and underemployed is not our fault." 2. They're needy. "We grew up with these parents that were sort of helicopter parents," she says about overly involved families who provide too much validation to their kids. "My mother thought I was the prettiest, smartest, greatest always, and she would tell me constantly. When she wasn't around to do that, I needed to get it from other people." 3. Millennials are slutty. While the media may make it seem like people in their 20s are obsessed with casual hookups, Alicia says, "The truth of the matter is, the majority of college students are virgins. Only 1 in 4 is really participating in hookup culture." 4. They're all liberals. "We do tend to be a rather progressive group, but we're not all liberals," Alicia says. People in their 20s and 30s grew up in more diverse environments — religiously, ethnically, racially, and sexually. "It's a generation that's going to approach politics differently because those social issues are going to be what divides us." 5. Millennials just won't grow up. "We're not buying homes, because we saw how burnt out everyone got from the housing crash," Alicia says. "We're much more transient then we've ever been. We go where the jobs are, so why are you going to lock yourselves into a financial commitment?"
A look back at the greatest moments from this season of "Daily Shot," and a final scene you won't believe.
In this "lost episode" of "Daily Shot," Ali interviews her husband. Things get uncomfortable. Many months ago George Stephanopoulos came into the "Daily Shot" studio for an interview. So why hasn't it aired? While George is famous for asking hard-hitting questions on "Good Morning America," we discovered he doesn't like being on the other side of the interview table, especially when Ali is the one asking the questions. The "GMA" host did his best to be a good sport, but it's clear he wasn't altogether comfortable with his wife's "less formal" interview style or "loose interpretation of facts." That said, if you want to find out how often Ali embarrasses George or see how George rates himself against fellow handsome Greek John Stamos, check out this ... the penultimate episode of "Daily Shot"!

On the new season of "Inside Amy Schumer" on Comedy Central, viewers can look forward to celebrity guests like Paul Giamatti of "Sideways" and "The Hangover Part II," Zach Braff of "Scrubs," Rachel Dratch of "30 Rock," and Parker Posey, among others. But the show's success doesn't mean it's easier the second time around for host and star Amy Schumer. "They gave us less money, so I'm also playing the extras," Amy jokes. Did she hook up with any of the famous guest stars who appear in Season 2? Nope. "I've never hooked up with anyone who could help my career," she says. "I've been sleeping my way down." Amy was quick to dismiss Ali's jealously over her TV success and upcoming movie, "Train Wreck," directed by Judd Apatow. "I'm lonely, and I don't have any time to enjoy my life," she said. To watch Amy play a hilarious round of "Which Is Worse?" with Ali, check out this episode of "Daily Shot."
