13 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Thankfully, the Mike & Molly had several chances to deliver the LOLs over the subsequent 90 minutes, even if her absence from both digital shorts and all of “Weekend Update” left me scratching my head almost as hard as I did during Kanye West’s musical performances.

Michael Bloomberg Shares Spotlight at Lorne Michaels’ Lincoln Center Tribune

11 February 2016 10:03 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg found more than a little encouragement for his potential run for president Thursday night when he attended Lincoln Center’s American Songbook tribute to Lorne Michaels.

Bloomberg nearly stole the show from the honoree at the after-party at Alice Tully Hall, when high-wattage fans including Steve Martin urged him to mount a run for the White House. Bloomberg confirmed earlier this month that he was considering jumping in to the 2016 presidential race as an independent.

Bloomberg wouldn’t say any more about where his deliberations stand or what timetable he’s set for making a decision, nor would he expand on his motivation for launching a third-party candidacy. When asked variations on all of those questions by Variety, Bloomberg had an answer ready. “No. I can confirm I am not going to see the Knicks tomorrow,” he said.

The Grinder Video: Can Maya Rudolph Shrink Down Dean's Dramatic Side?

9 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Can actor Dean Sanderson get a bit overdramatic? Well, yeah. But this week on The Grinder (Fox, 9:30/8:30c), that trait costs the family firm a big client — and thus triggers the need for therapy. Cue guest star Maya Rudolph!

The (very) funny lady kicks off a multi-episode this week as Jillian, Stew’s own shrink who agrees to take Dean on as a patient. As revealed in the featurette above, her work proves almost too successful, when Dean “overcorrects” and begins “therapizing” the whole family. »

X-Files Recap: 'Back in the Day Is Now'

The X-Files‘ Dana Scully may not be immortal, but wouldn’t it have been nice if her mother were?

As many X-‘Philes guessed — and TVLine feared — Margaret Scully dies in the revival’s fourth hour, her death a painful tearing-away of Dana’s one constant: No matter what insanity Mulder was up to from week to week during the original run, Mama Scully always had a gripping hug and some nonsense-free advice for her only remaining daughter. She was the voice of reason when a delusional Dana pulled her gun in “Wetwired.” She was a bedside regular throughout her daughter’s cancer arc. »

Maya Rudolph Isn't Sure If She's Hosting The Grinder or Guest-Starring in Funny SNL Spoof

8 February 2016 3:00 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Live from Boise, it's Maya Rudolph! Except it's not live, and she's not actually in Idaho. Rudolph begins her guest arc on The Grinder this week, and she made a video with her costars (which you can watch exclusively here) the only way she knows how: a la Saturday Night Live, her home of seven years. But unfortunately, it seems she's not exactly sure how this whole "scripted TV" thing works, and is very disappointed when The Grinder star Rob Lowe informs her that she's not actually hosting The Grinder, she's actually guest-starring. "There's no musical guest either," a dejected Rudolph asks before Fred Savage crushes her dreams and confirms her fears. "Wow, »
