So you've been fired from 'SNL': Here's what to do next

15 July 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Brooks Wheelan, we hardly knew ye… and now we may never get the chance to. The blue-eyed comedian revealed Monday night that he won’t be returning for a second year at Saturday Night Live this fall—and that the decision wasn’t his to make. In a fairly delightful tweet, Wheelan said that he’d been let go. (His exact words: “Fired from New York, it’s Saturday Night!” Which is funny enough to make me wish things hadn’t ended this way.)

Clearly, getting canned from television’s most august comedy institution must be a bit of a bummer. »

Brooks Wheelan announced on Monday that he was "Fired From New York, It's Saturday Night!"

Brooks Wheelan announced on Monday that after one season on Saturday Night Live, he was "Fired From New York, It's Saturday Night!"

The 27-year-old comedian tweeted: 

But don't go feeling sorry for Weelan just yet. Acclaimed comedy director Judd Apatow (Knocked Up, Superbad) has already reached out to him, tweeting: ".@brookswheelan you will have the Robert Downey Jr. post SNL career! (minus the painful drug addiction). Rock on friend!"

Wheelan responded: ".@JuddApatow thanks man! I'm gonna take this time to formally submit myself for the Ironman reboot in 2021 and the Chaplin reboot in 2032."

Wheelan isn't the only SNL cast member to have his time cut short on the show. Obvious Child star Jenny Slate was let go after one season. She did, however, drop the f-bomb on her first episode. Chris Parnell, who now stars on Suburgatory, was cut from »

Jane Lynch talks 'Glee' series finale, favorite Sue Sylvester moments

24 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Glee’s upcoming sixth season will be its last, which means, sadly, that television will be losing one of its most brilliant characters: Sue Sylvester.

Played by Jane Lynch, Sue has captured audiences since the show first hit the small screen in 2009. With her ruthless, menacing antics and offensive one-liners, Sue, at first glance, is pure evil. But counterbalanced by a tenderness toward her sister, Jean, and Cheerios cheerleader Becky, both of whom have Down syndrome, there is something very sweet and compassionate about Sue as well. Sue is complex, one of the great female antiheroes.

Staying in on Saturday night has never sounded so sweet. Ben & Jerry's debuted two new ice cream flavors last week (just in time for summer!), which are both inspired by popular Saturday Night Live sketches. The company revealed the news via Twitter, posting a pic of the tasty treats with a silly note which read "Live from Ben & Jerry's, It's SNL Batches!" If you're a cupcake lover, you're bound to devour the brand's new Lazy Sunday flavor, inspired by the famous sketch with Andy Samburg and Chris Parnell.  In the skit, the two share their love of cupcakes, so naturally, the dessert features "vanilla cake batter ice cream with chocolate and yellow cupcake »

Ben & Jerry’s Announces Two New ‘SNL’-Themed Flavors

19 June 2014 12:42 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ben & Jerry’s is adding two “Saturday Night Live”-themed ice cream flavors to its extensive repertoire, paying homage to a favorite character and skit.

Gilly’s Catastrophic Crunch, a combination of chocolate and sweet cream ice creams with caramel clusters, fudge-covered almonds and marshmallow swirl, serves as a nod to the recurring character Gilly, played by Kristen Wiig.

The other new flavor, Lazy Sunday, made up of vanilla cake batter ice cream with chocolate and yellow cupcake pieces and a chocolate frosting swirl, is a reference to the “SNL” skit of the same name starring Chris Parnell and Andy Samberg.

As ice cream and “SNL” aficionados will recall, this isn’t the first time Ben & Jerry’s has teamed up with the NBC sketch comedy skein. The company unveiled the Schweddy Balls flavor, inspired by a skit featuring Alec Baldwin as a guest on a fake NPR show, in »

Ben & Jerry's Introduces 'Saturday Night Live'-Themed Flavors

19 June 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's probably a lot of overlap between people who love ice cream and people who love "Saturday Night Live," and to capitalize on that affection, Ben & Jerry's is creating four new flavors inspired by sketches on the long-running series.

The ice cream purveyors made the announcement this week that they're creating a new line of flavors called SNL Batches in honor of the series' upcoming 40th season. Four flavors will be released throughout the year, and two have already been announced. They are:

Gilly's Catastrophic Crunch, inspired by the maniacal Kristen Wiig character, made with chocolate and sweet cream ice creams with caramel clusters, fudge-covered almonds, and a marshmallow swirl; and Lazy Sunday, inspired by one of "SNL"'s first digital shorts (and Lonely Island collaborations), starring Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell, made with vanilla cake batter ice cream with chocolate and yellow cupcake pieces and a chocolate frosting swirl. »

5 Breakout Actors Who Totally Stole 22 Jump Street

17 June 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Audiences showed up in droves for 21 Jump Street two years ago, loving not only the adventures of Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Ice Cube, but also grooving with the supporting cast. The production was smart enough to recruit soon-to-be stars like Brie Larson, ringers like Rob Riggle, utility men like Dave Franco, and goofballs like DeRay Davis, Chris Parnell and Ellie Kemper. Switching the venue for the sequel meant a whole new supporting cast, a whole new bunch of scene stealers. In 22 Jump Street, Hill and Tatum can't carry the load themselves. Fortunately, the cast is filled with several merry-makers ready to lift a scene away. Here's a look at five rising talents who completely stole some of the choice moments from 22 Jump Street.

Atx TV Fest 2014: Intense Discussions with the 'Archer' Gang

11 June 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

When I received my confirmation email to meet writer/producer Matt Thompson and Archer cast members Lucky Yates (Doctor Krieger), Chris Parnell (Cyril Figgis) and H. Jon Benjamin (Sterling Archer) in the Les Paul room of Maggie Mae's, I thought for sure I was being pranked. I've not been to that bar in a while, but I certainly didn't remember it having an upstairs room. Sure enough, as I serendipitously found parking right next to the bar that Friday afternoon, I discovered that the Archer team had found a little spot to beat the humid Austin heat -- a getaway from the growing buzz of 6th Street on a Friday afternoon.

The guys were as I anticipated: laid back, relaxed and quick to make jokes about any topic that came up. We talked about the film scene in Austin and their panel at the Ritz during Atx Television Festival »
