Watch Trailer For Nick Cannon-Directed High School Comedy 'School Dance'

7 June 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Who knew that Mr. Mariah Carey - aka Nick Cannon - had directed another feature film? It's a high school comedy titled "School Dance," which judging from the trailer, is exactly the sort of film you would expect Cannon to direct. I mean, seriously, think about it. If Cannon was directing "Selma" then that would be an unexpected surprise, and we would be forced to look at him in a different light altogether (“Wow! Cannon is directing 'Selma'? I didn’t know the brother was so deep”). But "School Dance"? Yeah that sounds about right.The cast is also what you would expect: Mike Epps, Katt Williams, Luenell, Amber Rose, George Lopez, with Bobb’e J. Thompson in the lead, »

'Saturday Night Live' recap: Louis C.K. does his thing

30 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It’s too bad the Polar Vortex doesn’t inspire the same creativity as Hurricane Sandy.

When Louis C.K. first hosted SNL in 2012, his debut was nearly ruined by devastating weather. Against all odds, the show went on anyway — and it ended up being one of that fall’s more successful episodes. Although Saturday’s weather (in New York City, anyway) echoed 2012′s cold, rainy November, the show wasn’t quite as on point this time around. C.K. acquitted himself fairly well, minus a few flubbed lines and character breaks. That said, he only really let loose in his opening monologue, »
