Footage from a 1995 pilot titled Rtvn showcases a young Poehler who can put together a rhyme, proving that she has always been the coolest—even way back in the day! Talk about a throwback. "The next man or the next wo-man it doesn't make a difference. Keep the competition coming. I recite chapter and verse. The title of this recital is 'Ladies First'," rapped the comedienne.

3 March 2015 9:37 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Netflix has announced some big news about its slate of upcoming shows, as well as taking another big step in their outward expansion, having struck a deal to purchase True Detective director Cary Fukanaga’s new film.

In terms of its new show line-up, four big new series will get their debut through the summer: sci-fi show Between will air in May of this year, followed swiftly by the double-whammy of Sense8, the new show from The Matrix creators Lana and Andy Wachowski and Babylon 5’s J. Michael Straczynski, and the hugely-anticipated third season of Orange Is the New Black in June.

Then, on July 17th, the streaming service will unveil Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, the prequel mini-series to the cult 2001 film of the same name, whose stellar cast includes Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Kristen Wiig, Amy Poehler, Jon Hamm, Chris Pine, Jason Schwartzman, »

Netflix Announces Release Dates For Orange Is The New Black Season 3 And More

2 March 2015 2:39 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Amazon Studios might be pushing out their own original content, including the Golden Globe-winning Transparent, but the streaming game is still owned by Netflix. It’s been three days since they dropped all 13 episodes of House Of Cards season 3 and for most binge-watchers, that means there’s a whole year to wait until their next dose of Frank’s shady antics. To soothe the sting, the digital content behemoth has just announced the summer premiere dates for some of their hottest shows, including the third season of Orange Is The New Black.

First up is Canadian sci-fi series, Between, which expected to arrive sometime in May. Starring Jennette McCurdy as a pregnant teenager in a small town whose residents don’t live past the age of 21, this could very well be the year’s sleeper hit series.

Next, we have Sense8, the latest effort from The Wachowskis. Arriving on June 5th, »

New Awards Season Rules: Would more nominees help solve the Oscars' diversity problem?

26 February 2015 6:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Excuse us if we go out on a limb here, but something tells us the collective brain trust at The Academy is glad this awards season has mercifully come to an end. After an incredibly diverse 86th Academy Awards ceremony, where "12 Years a Slave" took Best Picture, a Mexican filmmaker won Best Director, Lupita Nyong'o earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar and John Ridley won Best Adapted Screenplay, the Oscars appeared to take a step back in 2015. It wasn't just that "Selma" was snubbed in a number of major categories. The #OscarsSoWhite hashtag became a historical footnote that will haunt the Academy for years (and, trust, it will be back again if the public wills it). But it had more to do with all white nominees in the acting categories than just "Selma" itself. This also brought to light that it was yet another year without a female nominee in the Best Director category, »

Loved Christina Aguilera's Sex and the City Impression? Here's the Original

26 February 2015 11:50 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Christina Aguilera proved that she's a master of impressions when she channeled Britney Spears during an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon this week - it's worth nothing, though, that Aguilera gave us a glimpse of her talent when she did a spot-on Samantha Jones impersonation back in 2004. When the singer hosted Saturday Night Live over a decade ago, she - along with Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Rachel Dratch - did a sketch spoofing the series finale of Sex and the City. Aguilera completely killed it with her impression of the sex-obsessed Samantha Jones (played on the show by Kim Catrall), and it remains one of the most memorable celebrity performances on SNL in recent history. You'll cackle at spoofed lines from the show like, "My brood of broads was broadly brooding," and "He said I wore too much Moscow-a!" Christina even reprised her classic lines from »

Drew Barrymore Is Finally Publishing Her Life Story

26 February 2015 7:14 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

How do you celebrate turning 40? By inking a book deal to publish your life story, of course. People reports that Drew Barrymore will release a collection of autobiographical essays, via Dutton. The book's described as "humorous, emotional, and welcoming" — so, a lot like Amy Poehler and Tina Fey's recent memoirs, we're guessing. Barrymore previously chronicled her famously tumultuous childhood in 1991's Little Girl Lost, but says her new book will include more stories from that time in her life, like "living on her own at 14 (and how laundry may have saved her life), getting stuck in a gas station overhang on a cross-country road trip, saying goodbye to her father in a way only he could have understood, and many more adventures and lessons that have led to the most important thing in her life, which is motherhood." Last year Barrymore also published Find It in Everything, »

Amy Poehler Made a Pilot With the Godfather of Improv When She Was 23 and It Is So Weird

25 February 2015 3:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In honor of the Parks and Rec finale, Second City unearthed an old pilot that Amy Poehler made in 1995 alongside improv guru Del Close and fellow future famous person Adam McKay. It's called Rvtv, and it is very strange. Co-star Matt Dwyer tells Splitsider, "I honestly do not recall where the concept came from," and that really says it all.  »

How Parks and Recreation Ranks Amongst the Best and Worst TV Finales of All Time

25 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Knope they could. And they did. After seven glorious seasons, our beloved Parks and Recreation left us on Tuesday night, with a series finale filled with time-jumps, laughs, tears, a death, sweet returns (Hi Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones!) and Amy Poehler being perfect. After the finale aired, we asked you to weigh in on whether you loved or loathed Mike Schur's swan song. And now, we have the results, and an updated ranking of the Best and Worst TV Finales of All Time! After Parenthood said goodbye earlier this year (still sobbing, Nbd!), it managed to beat Breaking Bad to take the title for best series of all time. But could the Pawnee gang do the same? Or is it joining Dexter and »

All things come to an end and last night's primetime saw a lot of shows do just that, some forever and some likely just for now.

25 February 2015 8:42 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Parks and Recreation” went out with a bit of a bang on Tuesday — or at least whatever descriptive word one can attribute to a low-rated show hitting relatively good marks. The Amy Poehler sitcom hauled in its most viewers (4.271 million) since January 2012, when the show followed “30 Rock.” “Parks'” 1.6 rating in the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic is the show’s highest since May 2013, and is up 45 percent from last week’s episode.

Last night, following the series finale of NBC's "Parks and Recreation," Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Nick Offerman, Adam Scott, Aziz Ansari, Aubrey Plaza, Jim O'Heir, Jon Glaser and co-creator Mike Schur appeared on "Late Night With Seth Meyers" to share stories about filming the finale, and to sing viewers out. The "Parks" crew revealed to Seth Meyers who the biggest crybaby was during the last day of filming, as well as what it was like starting out on the show. The cast also shares some of the ideas they pitched regarding the finale, including Chris Pratt's hilariously dark suggestion that the show should end like "Six Feet Under," where you see how all of the characters die. There was also some inappropriate kissing and singing... Lots of singing. Watch the cast and crew of "Parks and Rec" talk to Seth Meyers about the finale below: Read More: 'Parks and Recreation »
