The Good Wife doesn't return until Sunday, Oct. 4 (rude!), but we've got the first pictures from the season seven premiere! The episode, currently titled "Grunts," sees the introduction of series regular Cush Jumbo as the new attorney character Lucca Quinn and Margo Martindale as Ruth Eastman. No Jeffrey Dean Morgan—yet! Saturday Night Live veteran Jane Curtin guest stars as Judge Farley and we're already not-so-secretly hoping she becomes a recurring player. You can never have too much Jane Curtin. Meanwhile, Mo Rocca returns as journalist Ted Willoughby. Familiar recurring faces Chris Noth (Peter Florrick on the series), Jerry Adler (Howard Lyman) and Michael J. Fox (Louis Canning) are also set to »
Chicago – Love, hate or maintain indifference to it, the TV dinosaur “Saturday Night Live” has and will continue to influence American culture as long as it may reign. To celebrate its 40th Anniversary, filmmaker Bao Nguyen takes a fresh look at the iconic television show in “Live From New York!”
To put the era in perspective, when I saw the first very first episode (October of 1975) I didn’t understand parts of it – it was unlike anything this teenager (at the time) from small-town Indiana had ever seen. A joke about two men doing a parody of the Geritol ads at the time – “my wife, I think I’ll keep her” – was light years ahead of that situation being a reality. And that is how Bao Nguyen approaches this documentary, with an eye towards how SNL broke barriers, and how it maintains a jaundiced view of the cultures, news and the world. »

With 40 years’ worth of material to cram in, this authorised SNL documentary leaves out the drugs and dodgy sketches in favour of a breezy, celebratory tone
On the one hand, an 80-minute documentary cramming in 40 years of Saturday Night Live (SNL) is bound to be a disappointment. There’s no way you can highlight everything. On the other, having 40 years’ worth of material and only 80 minutes to fill ensures the gag-writers and sketch comedians from Studio 8H will seem like the greatest heroes ever to walk the Earth. Director Bao Nguyen’s breezy, authorised hagiography shows how producer Lorne Michaels and his revolving staff kept their show fresh and reflective of the times. Appraising this programme in full is, in many ways, simply looking at smart people looking at the world around them. As such, Live From New York! is a nice macro view of our culture from a wash of specificity. »

Unforgettable is undergoing another casting change as it prepares to return, now on A&E, for its fourth season later this year.
Skeet Ulrich (Jericho) will play Eddie Martin, the husband of Poppy Montgomery’s Carrie, TVGuide.com is reporting. The role, first introduced in the Season 3 finale, was originally played by Michael Dempsey (Guiding Light).
The addition of Ulrich is merely the latest in a long line of casting shake-ups for the former CBS drama. Not only are Jane Curtin, Tawny Cypress and Dallas Roberts not returning as series regulars, »

Bonilla will play Denny Padilla, a new team member at the Major Cases division and a fast-rising star within the NYPD. He’s a bit rough-around-the-edges, but with a quiet side with a gentle wit. He’s also a fanboy of Poppy Montgomery’s Carrie.

Every time Amy Schumer comes out with a new sketch, it's impossible not to think about how necessary it is that a female standup comic has the platform on Comedy Central to be as irreverent, truthful, and damning as she wants. It wasn't so long ago that females in sketch comedy were reduced to one-note roles. (Check out "Laugh-In" sometime and note how many times the point of a bit is "Oh, Goldie. Such a space cadet.") We picked ten examples of feminism in sketch comedy dating all the way back to the heyday of Carol Burnett. Comb the hair on your Asian-American doll and enjoy. 1. Carol Burnett is "movie star crazy" One of the enduring treats of "The Carol Burnett Show" is the feminist undertones in many of her sketches. The fact that she's so outlandish and having so much fun is a triumph in itself, but in this sketch, »

The Tribeca Film Festival opened on Wednesday night at the Beacon Theatre with an odd pairing: the premiere of the 40th anniversary “Saturday Night Live” documentary “Live From New York!” followed by a short concert from Ludacris, who had nothing to do with the movie.
The film features interviews from four decades of “SNL” cast members and hosts, including Chevy Chase, Jane Curtin, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Alec Baldwin, Jimmy Fallon, Andy Samberg, Seth Meyers, Will Ferrell, Julia Louis-Dreyfus (who called “SNL” a “sexist institution” onscreen) and Molly Shannon, all of whom were suspiciously absent from the festivities. Former vice-president Al Gore is also interviewed in the doc, talking about how he found Darrell Hammond’s impersonation of him funny during the 2000 election.

Unforgettable is officially saying goodbye to three cast members as it inches closer to its Season 4 reboot on A&E.
A Sony insider confirms that Jane Curtin, Tawny Cypress and Dallas Roberts will not return as series regulars, although Roberts is slated to make two guest appearances early in Season 4. (Fyi: When CBS axed the series, many of the actors’ deals lapsed, and some have moved on to other gigs.)

Ever since the start, "Saturday Night Live" has given us bold, weird character actresses who seesawed between deadly one-liners and powerful impersonations. Gilda Radner charmed you with insanity. Jane Curtin jarred you with sarcasm. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Nora Dunn, and Jan Hooks balanced goofy caricatures with serious thespian chops. But when Molly Shannon joined "SNL" 20 years ago in February of 1995, a new wave of female characterizations began on Lorne Michaels' revue: Suddenly women could be the zaniest, ballsiest performers in the entire telecast -- and with the biggest grins on their face, to boot. Shannon was joined in the cast by Groundlings loon Cheri Oteri later in 1995; Northwestern alum and onetime violin prodigy Ana Gasteyer came in '96. The trio found inventive ways to mock new distaff phenomena in pop culture like "The View" and Lilith Fair while injecting carnality, cool intelligence, and even scariness into familiar "SNL" roles for women. »

What is it about "Clue"? Thirty years after the kooky non-hit murder mystery left theaters (along with its three original endings), it's become as much of a cult phenomenon as "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," Tim Curry's other mansion romp with a delirious lineup of characters. Don't believe me? Until Paramount stepped in to protest, La's NuArt Theatre conducted "shadow cast" screenings of "Clue" featuring costumed cast imitators who mimed the movie in front of the projection. That's a next-level tribute. Based on the Parker Brothers board game, "Clue" is a whodunit in a very traditional sense. It is literally a dark and stormy night, there is literally a butler who might've done it, and there are Agatha Christie-type explanations for the homicides at the end of the movie. So why is it beloved? That answer, unlike the culprit of the movie's seven murders, reveals itself quickly: "Clue »

My fellow Americans, we received some devastating news this week, courtesy of Fox’s Empire: We are all just Boo-Boo Kitties, chasing our tails and kidding ourselves that we’ll ever keep it as real — or as tight — as Cookie Lyon.
I mean, try this one on for size: Ex-con Cookie walks into a celebrity soirée, spies her barely-legal rapper son with the fortysomething girlfriend he refers to as “Mama,” and begins throwing shade like a bamboo umbrella.

After Monday’s time-warp of a Sleepy Hollow season finale, star Tom Mison has a somewhat startling idea for the direction in which he’d like to take Ichabod, should the bubble series return for a third season.
