Our host for tonight is Elizabeth Banks, aka not Donald Trump Thank God. In addition to not being a racist overgrown oompa loompa, Banks’s other credits include being the director, producer, and co-star of last summer’s Pitch Perfect 2, a key supporting actress in The Hunger Games franchise, a beloved guest star on shows from Scrubs to 30 Rock, and a generally very funny actress/director/producer. And now she can add first-time SNL host to the list! Cold Open: Cecily Strong delivers a heartfelt message on behalf of New York City to the people of Paris. This was a really classy move on SNL’s part, reminiscent of the warm way they handled their first episodes post-9/11. All in all a well-handled and somber start to the night. Monologue: Elizabeth Banks uses the skills she picked up from Pitch Perfect 2 to direct her own musical monologue performance of What a Feeling. »

Ready to feel old? Jonathan Taylor Thomas, the object of every teen and tween's affection in the 1990s, is celebrating his 34th birthday today, Sept. 8. The heartthrob — known to the Tiger Beat crowd as Jtt — walked onto the scene (and into our hearts) way back in 1991, when he was just 10 years old. That means almost two and a half decades have passed since his debut on ABC's Home Improvement. (Go ahead, take a moment and let that sink in.) Thomas starred on the Tim [...] »
Oh, the 90s. A decade we love so much, we refuse to let it die. But who can blame us when the heartthrobs of the time were so swoon-worthy?
We had so many posters and we may or may not have convinced ourselves that we would one day be Mrs. Jonathan Taylor Thomas. But, that's a story for another time.
Here are what our biggest crushes from the 90s look like then versus now.

Jonathan Taylor Thomas first hit the Hollywood scene in the early '90s, and he quickly became the king of magazine pinups as one of the most popular teen heartthrobs. He famously voiced young Simba in The Lion King, and in Disney movies like Man of the House and Tom and Huck, Jtt showed off his sweet charm. Along with his popular role on Home Improvement, he later had fans swooning with appearances on TV shows like Smallville and 8 Simple Rules. To celebrate Jtt fandom in all its '90s glory, take a look at reasons the 33-year-old actor was - and always will be - one of the best teen heartthrobs. »
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Mindy Kaling has a lot of feelings about weddings. Basically, as a bridesmaid you're a maid in actual uniform, while groomsmen just sit around drinking beer and playing with dogs. True that, to be honest. Here are her thoughts on "Late Night with Seth Meyers:"
Speaking of weddings, Adam Scott and Paul Rudd managed to get themselves kicked out of one because they flashed their man-parts during a video that was shown to the entire reception. We're traumatized just hearing this story.

In the wake of the shocking season five finale of Pretty Little Liars, we finally found out that "A"'s name is Charles Dilaurentis, giving us one answer and so many more questions. As we anxiously await the new season, we're looking for any distraction, and Shay Mitchell's new project seems like just the ticket. Mitchell is the host and "cupid" in SweeTARTS Candy's new YouTube dating show, called Get Roped In. We recently spoke to her about her experience on the show, plus her own trials and tribulations with life, love, and of course, the world of Pretty Little Liars. Keep reading to get the juiciest tidbits. Popsugar: What have you learned about love that you don't think Emily Fields has learned yet? Shay Mitchell: I would say what I have learned about love is that everything happens for a reason. Each person is another stepping stone. »
By the 1990s, studios were waking up to movie marketing, and the era of the blockbuster. Tim Burton's Batman, released in summer 1989, had introduced the idea of a big opening weekend, and modern movies now target their promotional work to get just that. As such, it's harder and harder for smaller films to snare the top slot at the Us box office, even for one weekend.
In the 1990s, particularly the first half of the 1990s, that wasn't so much the case though. In fact, many films that have long since fallen from the public conscious topped the chart. And in this piece, I've tried to capture some of them.
Inevitably, you're going to have heard of some of them, and what a UK dweller sees as a »
Suddenly, it's 1995 and we want to put this wannabe Tiger Beat poster of Liam Hemsworth on our wall. The hunky Hollywood celeb debuted an interesting new haircut yesterday while at the 2015 Kids' Choice Awards, where he accepted the award for Favorite Male Action Star for his role as Gale Hawthorne in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1, and it was just the most beautiful yet kinda awkward throwback we could have ever not asked for. In fact, his middle-part, semi-bowl cut is very reminiscent of one particular teenage heartthrob from the '90s—Hi, Jonathan Taylor Thomas! Yep, we're totally getting an old-school Jtt vibe from Liam's new 'do (maybe even a Leonardo DiCaprio »

The '90s brought us new boy bands, Friends, and celebrity-filled "Got Milk?" ads that we used to collage our notebooks and bulletin boards. It's been over 20 years since the iconic ad campaign first launched, but feeling nostalgic for those early "Got Milk" moments, we're looking back on some of the most memorable ads from the '90s and early 2000s. Then-teen heartthrob Jonathan Taylor Thomas smoldered in his ad, while Britney Spears struck a silly pose alongside her childhood self. Meanwhile, Kate Moss and David Beckham both stripped down to model their milk mustaches, and the Backstreet Boys bundled up in leather to drink milk in an alley. Take a trip down memory lane with these vintage "Got Milk?" ads, then check out signs you know you were a teen in the 2000s. »
The Taylors are back together again ... three of 'em, at least.On Friday's episode of "Last Man Standing," Tim Allen will reunite with two members of his "Home Improvement" family, Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Patricia Richardson. The actor's former TV wife plays Helen Potts, a divorced neighbor of Allen's character, Mike, who loves working with power tools very early in the morning.

The Taylors are getting back together! In tonight's episode of Last Man Standing that stars Tim Allen, Jonathan Taylor Thomas will make a "surprise" cameo - along with the previously announced Patricia Richardson - to help round out the impromptu Home Improvement reunion. Richardson plays Helen Potts, a divorced neighbor of Allen's character, Mike. So how did the former Randy Taylor, aka the 33-year-old Thomas, end up in the episode, as well? Thomas came to the set to help promote the mini-reunion and the producers asked if he would step in to make a cameo. Lucky for Home Improvement fans, »

ABC’s dream team will be reuniting for at least a 1 time sting together on Last Man Standing. Tim Allen‘s former TV wife Patricia Richardson, will be guest starring on an upcoming episode. She will play Helen Potts, who lives next door to Tim’s family and will bother them with an annoying home repairs. This role will be a clear ode to the classic TV comedy that they made a staple in most homes. ABC had to convince her for a one time role, as she hasn’t been on TV since the old show ended. It is slated to air on January 9th.
I am hoping that this will lead to much more of her. We already have seen Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Richard Karn. The show as a whole has always hinted back at the classic Home Improvement, but they never outright copied it. It turns »
