‘Ted 2′ Fumbles: Are R-Rated Comedies in a Funk?

28 June 2015 11:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Raunch isn’t selling like it once did.

Ted 2″ is the latest bawdy comedy to struggle at the box office, opening to just $32.9 million this weekend, exposing some kinks in the R-rated comedy genre’s armor. The disappointing returns come on the heels of “Spy’s” underwhelming $29.1 million debut earlier this month. Neither film is a box office disaster — “Spy” stands to be profitable, and foreign grosses should push “Ted 2″ into the black — but they are not the ticket selling phenomenons many analysts expected they would become.

“Entourage” also carried an R rating, and bombed with a dismal $39.7 million in receipts. It’s unlikely that any MPAA designation could have saved that moldy bro-mance. Its failure is attributable to its origins as a bigscreen version of a television series that is several seasons removed from the zeitgeist.

The difficulty is that unlike other genres, novelty is a key selling point for comedies. »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Orphan Black, True Detective, Beauty and the Beast and Rookie Blue!

1 | From a technical perspective, might Orphan Black‘s family dinner scene have been even more impressive than last season’s dance party?

Camel Toe to High Fashion: #Tbt ''Mom Jeans''—and We Can Thank Hailey Baldwin For Their Comeback

25 June 2015 6:48 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

So back in 2003 when we saw these awkwardly fitting, unattractive denim pants coined on SNL as "Mom Jeans," did we think they'd ever be cool? Aside from maybe having a mom who rocked the 9-inch zipper, we first saw "Mom Jeans" in a commercial spoof where Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Rachel Dratch were prancing around with severe camel toes while smiling at the camera.   The overly pleasant voiceover asks, "Are you looking for the perfect gift for mom this Mother's Day? Introducing Mom Jeans, exclusively at Jc Penny's." Well, we're not sure when they became cool (although we're going to give Topshop some credit) but they have. And it's »

Watch: Maya Rudolph Nails Rachel Dolezal Impression on ‘Late Night’

23 June 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For everyone lamenting the fact that “Saturday Night Live” is on hiatus while the Rachel Dolezal controversy rages on, Maya Rudolph has answered your wishes.

While visiting “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” Rudolph told her fellow “SNL” alum Meyers that she has, unsurprisingly, been approached for a Dolezal impression with the former NAACP leader in the spotlight — despite the fact that Rudolph left “SNL” as a cast member in 2007.

“When you leave ‘SNL,’ sometimes things will happen in the news and people will say, ‘Oh my God, it’s such a shame that you’re not there,’” Meyers said. “You have to have been getting this a lot lately.”

Don’t worry, though: Meyers provided Rudolph with a stage to do what she does best.

They watched Dolezal’s extremely awkward interview in which a reporter asked her whether or not she was black, with Dolezal unable to answer. With that inspiration, »

Maya Rudolph's Rachel Dolezal Impression Is Completely Ridiculous and Totally Great

23 June 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Maya Rudolph rudely reminded us of just how much we miss her on Saturday Night Live when she busted out a wig and a Rachel Dolezal impression on Late Night With Seth Meyers. Maya explained that since Rachel made headlines earlier this month, people keep telling her she needs to play her. So, last night, she did just that by reenacting the former NAACP leader's now-infamous, superawkward interview - to hilarious effect. »

Maya Rudolph's Rachel Dolezal Impression Will Make You Laugh Out Loud—Watch Now!

23 June 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Ever since Maya Rudolph left Saturday Night Live in 2007, fans have been missing her spot-on impressions, just as they've missed Tina Fey's Sarah Palin. But thanks to some interesting news over the past few weeks, the comedienne decided to bless her fans with one more impression while appearing on Late Night With Seth Meyers at the behest of the show's host, Seth Meyers. And who did he request? None other than Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP Spokane chapter president who made headlines recently for saying, "I identify as black." "It happens to me every day," Rudolph explained. "People are like, 'It's too bad you haven't been on SNL since 2007. Like you have to play this »

Maya Rudolph's Rachel Dolezal Impression Is Hilariously Perfect

23 June 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you've been thinking that it's too bad that Maya Rudolph is no longer a member of the "Saturday Night Live" cast, you're not alone. If you've been thinking that that's too bad because she'd do a killer impression of Rachel Dolezal, you're still not alone.

During a recent visit to "Late Night with Seth Meyers," Rudolph revealed that she's told on a daily basis that she should do a Dolezal impression. "The whole thing is very fascinating to me," Rudolph said of Dolezal's headline-making reimagining of her racial history.

Meyers replayed the painfully awkward clip that's been making the rounds of a local TV news reporter asking Dolezal point blank if she's a black woman, and the stunned Dolezal stuttering, looking confused and angry, and finally just walking away. Rudolph then produced a wig that she just happened to have with her, and did a spot-on, hilarious impression of Dolezal's wide-eyed reactions. »

Maya Rudolph Does Her Best Rachel Dolezal Impression on 'Late Night With Seth Meyers'

23 June 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Maya Rudolph's SNL days might be over, but she still does one helluva impression!  The former "Saturday Night Live" cast member stopped by "Late Night With Seth Meyers" on Monday, where she had some fun with her former costar as they discussed current events.   The host began to tease the 42-year-old funny lady about her striking resemblance to former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal, who made headlines earlier this month when her parents outed her as a white woman.   "This happens when you leave SNL, sometimes things will happen in the news people will say 'Oh my god it's such a shame you're not there,'" the 41-year-old explained. "And I feel like you have to have been getting this a lot lately!" The "Bridesmaids" star revealed that she can't seem to escape the comparisons to the controversial figure.   "I've been getting that thing kind of on a daily basis with Rachel Dolezal, »

Maya Rudolph Mocks Rachel Dolezal on 'Late Night'

23 June 2015 8:11 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Last night, Maya Rudolph was a guest on her former "Saturday Night Live" co-star Seth Myers' late night talk-show, and revisited previous SNL co-star Tina Fey's memorable Sarah Palin impersonation, adding that, since the Rachel Dolezal scandal broke, she's been receiving lots of "if only" remarks from friends and fans, wishing she was still on "Saturday Night Live" so that she could play Dolezal on SNL, and be just as memorable as Fey was with Palin. It's likely not going to happen; unless she's scheduled to host an upcoming episode of the comedy sketch show, since she left the cast several years ago. But, if only to give fans a tease of what could've been, »

Maya Rudolph brought her A game and an afro wig to “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Monday to do a spot-on impression of former Spokane NAACP head Rachel Dolezal. The “Bridesmaids” star said people have been clamoring for one since the scandal first broke. “It happens to me everyday,” Rudolph said. “People say, ‘Oh, it’s too bad you haven’t been on “SNL” since 2007! Like you have to play this lady.'” See video: Bill Maher Wants Caitlyn Jenner and Rachel Dolezal to Go on Date Both Wearing #TheDress Meyers then asked Rudolph to help him recreate the »

Maya Rudolph Finally Did the Rachel Dolezal Impression We’ve All Been Waiting For

23 June 2015 7:07 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Rachel Dolezal's 15 minutes of fame have (thankfully) come and gone. But because many comedians — including Dave Chappelle — didn't quite know what to make of her story, most refrained from poking fun at her expense. Maya Rudolph isn't one of them. Since Rudolph can no longer use Saturday Night Live to scratch her impersonation itch, Seth Meyers provided both a forum and and a wig to get her into full #AskRachel character on Monday's Late Night. It doesn't disappoint. »

Best of Late Night TV: Seth MacFarlane's Wheel of Impressions, Ashley Tisdale's Twitter Feud With Andy Richter

23 June 2015 12:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Seth MacFarlane is already known for his impressive vocal talents, so of course the "Family Guy" creator and "Ted 2" director was awesome at Jimmy Fallon's "Wheel of Impressions." Just watch him discuss Time Warner Cable as Liam Neeson (he has a very particular set of channels...), then take on Starbucks as Bobcat Goldthwait, and chat about movies as Ray Romano. All Bobcat impressions are gold, since there's almost no way to miss with that. Of course, these things are never random -- Seth already showed off his Liam impression in Moviefone's Unscripted last year, so they let him do it again.

In his own sit-down interview, Seth discussed how his father, »
