Tonight, The Roast of Justin Bieber will air on Comedy Central and the masses will get what they’ve long been waiting for: a public shaming of Justin Bieber. Of course, some of the special’s most notable put-downs of the pop star have been publicized, including insults from the likes of Roast master Kevin Hart (“Justin’s Canadian. He’s actually considered American, because no Canadian has ever been this much of an asshole”), Shaquille O’Neal (“Last year you were ranked the fifth most hated person of all time. Kim Jong-un didn’t even score that low, and he uses your music to fuckin’ torture people”), and Jeffrey Ross (“You’ve become a cocky little shit. You are the King Joffrey of pop”).
While Bieber’s burns are definitely scorching, he’s hardly the only Roastee to get royally humiliated during their special. As we count down to The Roast of Justin Bieber, »

Hulu has more stories to tell about an apathetic New York City dude who sees ghosts. The streaming video platform announced its original supernatural comedy series Deadbeat will return for a second season on April 20, 2015.
Deadbeat features Kevin (played by Tyler Labine), a medium who is competent at helping ghosts complete their unfinished business but utterly incapable of making his own life better. Season two will include special guest stars James Franco (who just signed on to star in Hulu’s upcoming adaptation of a Stephen King novel), Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Zach Levi, Gilbert Gottfried, Finn Wittrock, and Jim Norton.
When Deadbeat debuted back in April 2014, we noted how Kevin’s lazy behavior and appearance appeals to the binge-watching, pot-smoking crowd. It seems appropriate, then, that Hulu has opted to release Deadbeat season two on 4/20, a day renowned for marijuana smoking. The teaser and key art »

So if you have some downtime come 4/20, Hulu has an idea on how to spend it. Read More: Hulu's 'Deadbeat' is Better Suited for TV Than the Web »

A stoner and a slacker, Kevin “Pac” Pacalioglu has trouble paying rent, but on the plus side, he has the awesome ability to communicate with ghosts. Tyler Labine stars in Deadbeat, a Hulu original series that debuted last year with a stellar 10-episode season. Channeling his excellent horror comedy performances in Tucker & Dale vs. Evil and Reaper, Labine makes for a delightfully unconventional ghost whisperer who will be joined by an interesting lineup of guest stars in the sophomore season that's slated to premiere in April.
Deadline reports that James Franco, Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Norton, Zachary Levi and Finn Wittrock play guest starring roles in Deadbeat’s second season. TVLine revealed in January that Levi plays the ghost of Abraham Lincoln in the ninth episode of season two, but it's uncertain at this time who the other guest actors play, though you can »

They’ll join Tyler Labine (Reaper), who stars as Kevin Pacalioglu, a hapless but gifted medium who will go to any lengths to help New York's ghosts settle their unfinished business. Cat Deeley (So You Think You Can Dance) also stars. Check… »
Adam Sandler's second movie after leaving Saturday Night Live was Happy Gilmore, which has grown a huge cult following over the years and helped launch the comedian as one of today's biggest box office stars. It is probably best remembered for an epic fight on the golf course between Adam Sandler and legendary game show host Bob Barker, which infamously ended with The Price Is Right headmaster declaring, "Now you've had enough...Bitch!" Well, that old grudge match is back on in a new video for the upcoming charity event Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs, which airs on Comedy Central this Sunday, March 8.
Jon Stewart will host Night of Too Many Stars, which will raise money with Nyca (New York Collaborates for Autism) to support programs covering everything from the intensive education kids with autism needs at a young age to social training »
It takes a commitment to pull off a star-packed comedy benefit show that has raised $18 million and counting for autism-related education and support programs since 2003.
Simply put, Rudd bared his soul and other bodily cavities for the sake of the cause, namely raising money for the New York Collaborates for Autism org. Using a “Wheel of Fortune”-style spinning wheel dubbed “Wheel of Rudd,” the actor invited audience members to spin for the chance to do something to him.
One gave him a slap, one landed on “Travolta face-touching,” a reference to last Sunday’s Oscar telecast, and one landed on “baby bird,” which involved an audience member chewing up a few bites of a Zabar »

Eddie Murphy was a miracle. Today, there is an industry around the show that is designed to be a sort of star-making assembly line, and I think many of the people who have used the show as a springboard to other things deserve that success completely. But when Eddie Murphy made his debut on the show in 1980, "Saturday Night Live" wasn't even guaranteed a spot on TV for much longer. After all, the original cast was gone by that point. The new cast, including Denny Dillon, Gilbert Gottfried, Charles Rocket, Ann Risley, and Joe Piscopo, seemed like a poor replacement for the likes of Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Gilda Radner, and Bill Murray. I was a ten year old nascent comedy nerd, and for me, it was mystifying to see something that had been the absolute center of the comedy universe suddenly drop completely out of relevance. Everything about that »

After two TV personalities created ads for Universal Orlando and paid their "Celebrity Apprentice" dues by praising Donald Trump, he awarded one of them $250,000 for their charity. That money is about the only thing that matters on "Celebrity Apprentice" finales, which are the worst part of a show that draws so much entertainment from celebrities being tested by high-pressure, quasi-business challenges. Since the decision is up to Donald Trump, it's always been like flipping a coin into a shredder: decisive but pointless. That said, Leeza Gibbons is an incredibly satisfying winner because she was such a non-controversial contestant all season, someone who was strong yet wonderful. She also raised more money in the final task, $324,000 to Geraldo Rivera's $146,000, and won the creative challenge, too. Trump told her, "you lead with kindness" and have "tremendous leadership ability." He also tried to get her a job with The Today Show. Before that, »

First, the results of last week’s final face-off were revealed, with Rivera’s team netting $146,000 and Leeza Gibbons‘ team earning $234,000. But even with that victory under her belt, Gibbons’ total was still trailing her fellow ’90s media titan’s by more than $250,000.
Fortunately for Gibbons, it wasn’t all about the bank for Trump — not necessarily, at least — when it came time to name a winner. »
Celebrity Apprentice has taken us on a dizzying journey this season, full of fights, firings and whatever this was — and Vivica A. Fox tells TVLine exactly how Monday’s live finale (NBC, 8/7c) should go down.

If you’re thinking of seeing Fifty Shades of Grey this Valentine’s Day, then you’re not alone. Fans of the smutty trilogy by E.L. James will be gathering worldwide to see the first installment of the Fifty Shades saga. It was recently confirmed by Focus Features that two sequels have been ordered, but thankfully there’s no plans to split the last of the books into two separate films.
The series, which originally started out as a Twilight fanfiction, follows the erotic relationship between college graduate Anastasia Steele, as played by Dakota Johnson, and heavy handed businessman Christian Grey, as played by Jamie Dornan. The series has had audiences split since its inception, while many feel they promote unhealthy relationships and domestic abuse, but just about everyone can agree that the movie would be a whole lot better if Christian was actually Boardwalk Empire »

Produced by Universal Television, Tbd Entertainment and Imagine TV, the pilot will be written by Scot Armstrong (“Hangover II”) who’s also an executive producer. Bob Simonds, Peter Traugott, Rachel Kaplan and “A Beautiful Mind” producer Brian Grazer will also executive produce.
- Alicia Banks
Pilot season is currently in full swing, with NBC issuing a pilot order for Problem Child. The half-hour sitcom is based on the 1990 feature film comedy of the same name, which starred John Ritter, Amy Yasbeck and Michael Oliver as the title character. The original movie followed a couple who get conned into adopting a seemingly-normal 7-year-old boy, before learning that he leaves destruction everywhere he goes.
The series is described as a family show, following two parents' "cat-and-mouse game" with their brilliant yet devilish child. Scot Armstrong, who wrote features such as Road Trip, Old School and The Hangover Part II, wrote the pilot script. The writer will also serve as an executive producer alongside Imagine Television's Brian Grazer, Tbd Entertainment's Peter Traugott and Universal TV's Rachel Kaplan.
#Amazing. Rob Gronkowski just read a passage from the erotic novel he inspired ... "A Gronking to Remember" ... and it's ... it's so Gronk. The line -- "In front of the entire country, Gronk’s spike impacts right between my buttcheeks."Definitely the best thing that happened at Super Bowl media day in Arizona Tuesday. Of course, the novel (written by Lacey Noonan) made headlines when it was made available on Amazon.com. And if you're still »
