Why 'The Chris Gethard Show' Is the Wildest Talk Show on TV

1 June 2016 11:51 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's Thursday night, and Chris Gethard has already broken his first pair of glasses of the evening. The audience in this midtown Manhattan broadcast studio are standing around a wrestling ring set up in the center of the room, cheering as loudly as they can. In one corner, a two-time world champion wrestler named Rhino circles the perimeter, his burly thighs rubbing together like two tan balloons. In the other is the 36-year-old comedian/talk-show host, unfazed by this behemoth of a man. Within seconds, the grappler has Gethard in the air, »

‘Horace and Pete’ Web Series Ends, Louis C.K. Announces

16 April 2016 11:37 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s only fitting that “Horace and Pete” has ended just as quietly as it began.

Louis C.K., the creator, writer, director, producer and star of the surprise web series, annouced on Saturday morning in a newsletter to fans that the show’s tenth episode, released on April 2, was also its final.

“That was it. I didn’t want to say in the last email that it was the last episode because I didn’t want you to know, as you watched the episode, that it would be the last one. But yeah, obviously, that was it,” he wrote.

The online series, which co-starred Steve Buscemi as Pete to C.K.’s Horace — brothers and bar owners — launched on Jan. 30 exclusively on C.K.’s website, LouisCK.net. Alan Alda, Edie Falco and Jessica Lange also appeared in the drama. The first episode was available for $5, the second for $2 and the rest for $3 each. »

Review: 'Horace and Pete' concludes as one of the very best dramas you'll see

4 April 2016 10:03 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(This column starts off talking about Horace and Pete in relatively general terms, for the benefit of the people who still haven't watched but are curious about sampling it. I'll get to spoilers for the finale midway through, with another warning before that.) Horace and Pete, Louis C.K.'s drama about a Brooklyn bar that's been run by the same family for 100 years, came to an end over the weekend, with even less fanfare than it had on arrival. News of the first episode simply appeared in the inboxes of people on the LouisCK.net email list that just said "Go here to watch it. We hope you like it." Saturday morning, the email read, "I have nothing clever to say.  But I would like you very much to know that episode 10 of Horace and Pete is ready right here." That this was going to be the final episode »

Tina Fey wasn't exactly thrilled with this year's politicized Oscars

1 March 2016 2:02 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After keeping away from Howard Stern for nearly a decade, Tina Fey returned to the show in December of last year to promote her hit comedy Sisters -- an appearance that included the memorable anecdote that Colin Quinn once called her the "c-word" during their run on SNL together. Today she returned to the show for the second time in less than three months -- this time to promote her upcoming Afghanistan war comedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot -- and again provided a solid handful of notable soundbites. Here are a few highlights from her appearance. 1. She had to change up her Sarah Palin impression when she reprised it on SNL earlier this year. "I felt like I had to start over and learn it like a new impression because she's different," said Fey. "She's a little jacked up [now]." To illustrate, Fey referenced Palin's bedazzled endorsement of Donald Trump back in »

Goldie Hawn Might Be Coming Out of Retirement to Play Amy Schumer’s Mom in Kidnapping Comedy

8 February 2016 11:53 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When news emerged last summer that Amy Schumer's first post-Trainwreck project would be a mother-daughter kidnapping comedy, one question loomed above all others: Who in the world should play Amy Schumer's mom? Now we've got our answer: It might be Goldie Hawn! The news was originally reported by Vulture's Kyle Buchanan, and then confirmed by the Wrap. The untitled comedy would mark Hawn's return to the screen after a 14-year absence. (Her last film was 2002's The Banger Sisters, which now won't even have the pleasure of being a trivia answer.) Of course, this news means that, in the Amy Schumer Cinematic Universe, Goldie Hawn once hooked up with Colin Quinn. Congratulations, Colin Quinn! »

Yada, Yada, Yada: Jerry Seinfeld Kills at First Beacon Gig

8 January 2016 8:13 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jerry Seinfeld is 61. From the stage at the Beacon Theater, where the comic began his yearlong residency last night, he told the crowd that this decade was his favorite decade of life so far. The reason: He doesn't have to explain himself anymore. "When someone calls me up to do something, I just say, 'No,'" he said. He also mentioned that in his 70s, he'll refuse to answer entirely.

Of course, the co-creator of Seinfeld can do exactly as he likes, and what he likes is stand-up. With one »
