A quick review of the "Last Man On Earth" season 2 premiere coming up just as soon as I address the White House press corps... After a brilliant and imaginative pilot episode, "Last Man on Earth" squandered a lot of its potential (and the goodwill generated by that pilot) by deciding that the funniest possible story they could tell in this very clean and safe post-apocalyptic world was one about a loser who kept screwing up chances to have sex with women hotter than the one he had the bad timing to meet first. It just kept hitting the same one or two notes over and over, and I stopped watching for a few weeks before returning for the finale, where Phil got to show some personal growth right before being kicked out of his hometown by the other Phil. If Will Forte and company were bound and determined to tell »

Welcome back to the end of the world, Last Man stans! Will Forte, Phil Lord, and Chris Miller’s cynical sitcom has returned for a new season on the same old deserted planet. The first season of The Last Man on Earth provided sight gags and snickers aplenty but failed to truly mine its characters’ emotions or ground its mysterious post-virus landscape in reality. Still, Last Man’s uneven freshman outing wrapped on a hopeful note, with our leads Phil (Will Forte) and Carol (Kristen Schaal) deserting their Tuscon frenemies and attempting to truly get to know each other beyond the limited scope of their sham marriage. Yet the show’s season-two premiere felt all too familiar — instead of revisiting what we love about these characters, we simply retreaded familiar territory. Let’s recap.Phil and Carol drove off on the horizon at the end of season one, and season »

“Last Man on Earth” is back — and so is Phil Miller’s horrific beard, which in real life is Will Forte‘s horrific beard. “It seemed like a fun thing to do passage of time,” he said on growing the bird’s nest back out. The Season 2 premiere episode is set six months from when we last touched base with Phil (Forte) and Carol (Kristen Schaal), who were hightailing it out of Tucson. “The character of Phil was set up with the beard,” Forte continued. “Once Phil shaved the beard off, he kind of became a different person. He’s returning to his. »

This past Sunday saw Fox’s The Last Man on Earth fail to add an Emmy to its collection of memorable artifacts (a gallery that features raisin balls, toilet pools, and Gary the Volleyball), but its appearance for multiple nominations was a pleasant reminder of the oddball success this series has been so far. Returning this Sunday for a second season, the post-apocalyptic comedy is very much the same show it was when premiering only seven months ago: anarchic, shambolic, loopy and (more often than not) very, very funny.
Star and creator Will Forte getting nominated for an acting award was hardly a shock, and executive producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller are no strangers to writing accolades. Given that the show developed a notably high-profile cast by the end of its 13-episode first season and was airing on network television, an awards »

Perk of being the self-elected President in a post-apocalyptic USA where the majority of the population has died and the country is essentially abandoned? Free reign over the White House, as you can see in E! News' exclusive sneak peek at the season two premiere of The Last Man on Earth. Phil (Will Forte) and his wife, Carol (Kristen Schaal), who were banished from Tucson at the end of season one once the gang of survivors who found themselves in the Arizona city realized that the self-proclaimed leader of the free world was kind of a d-bag, find themselves in Washington, DC in the season two premiere. In the clip, the couple, guided by the watchful eye of a portrait of Bill Clinton, get congressional with their »
Will Forte and Kristen Schaal are back Sunday for Season 2 of last year’s breakout sitcom, Fox’s “The Last Man on Earth,” and they’re taking their shenanigans to the vacant White House. Forte’s Phil Miller was “voted” President of the United States of America in Season 1, and after being banished from his Arizona hometown by newbie survivors, the titular character is now living where the Commander-in-Chief should. “And in short, my position on Syria is, ‘Dunno,’ but one thing I’m sure of, the situation is very syria-ous,” Miller quips in the below clip, quickly congratulating himself: “Boom, »

Will Forte and January Jones are back to just being co-stars. E! News has learned that The Last Man on Earth" pair have called it quits after dating for five months. No details surrounding their break up have been revealed. E! News has reached out to reps for comment. It was first revealed that Jones and Forte took their chemistry off-screen back in April.

Then, he realized there's another woman roaming around—Melissa (Jones)! And, well, he was just »
The ad campaign for Ken Kwapis‘ A Walk in the Woods gives the impression that it’s a geriatric version of last year’s Wild: two geezers hike the Appalachian Trail and discover the True Meaning of Life along the way. And there’s a bit of that, to be sure, but the overall tone is comedic rather than revelatory — Grumpy Old Hikers, if you will. I’m not familiar with the memoir on which the movie is based, but I think comedy was the right approach. It’s a decent entertainment, even if there are a few dropped threads and jokes that don’t quite hit the target.
Robert Redford stars as Bill Bryson, a travel writer from New Hampshire who decides to hike the famed 2,000-plus-mile trail after the funeral of yet another close acquaintance. When his wife (the ever-lovely Emma Thompson) informs him that he can’t »

Perhaps because both worlds are totally surreal and have rabid fandoms, one Imgur-user-slash-artist decided to combine Game of Thrones with Bob's Burgers. "I've spent the last month drawing (almost) every character from Game of Thrones in the animated style of Bob's Burgers," the user, CarlosDanger101, wrote, providing 18 images of intricately designed, spot-on fan art. "I hope you like it!" Indeed we do, CarlosDanger. Indeed we do. The gallery (below) contains a slew of popular characters, ranging from those in House Stark and Targaryen to those in House Tyrell and Martell. (The people who are definitely not dead yet are also included, too — don't worry.) Perusing the gallery, it's easy to imagine Kristen Schaal bringing Arya to life, or Dan Mintz, a deadpan Hodor. With Bob's Burgers returning later this month, one can only hope this will inspire more Catsteros.Enjoy: »
