Kris Kristofferson was a struggling songwriter – and part-time janitor – when he first met Johnny Cash at a Nashville recording studio. And, like all starving artists, he used the opportunity to pitch the Man in Black some of his tunes.
Cash liked what he heard, but ultimately, never recorded any of Kristofferson's music...until one fateful helicopter ride changed everything.
Or at least that's the way Drunk History remembers it. And now, in this exclusive preview »
Chicago – If there is any genre of film that needs a good blasting, it is the romantic comedy. These silly fantasies practically seem like satires anyway, so when the comic genius of writer/director David Wain ponders them, and casts Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler as the “couple,” the funny will fly.
Although making fun of the rom-com is like shooting fish in a barrel, Wain – with co-writer Michael Showalter – use all kind of firing weapons. The film is actually like the “Airplane” of rom-com satires, going so extreme and surreal that you will be as much freaking out as laughing, which is awesome. Rudd, Poehler, Cobie Smulders (“How I Met Your Mother”), Bill Hader and Ellie Kemper (“The Office”) are all at the top of their comic games, and they deliver the sometimes bizarre material to perfection. If you love or hate rom-coms, this movie is for you. »

There was a certain point in history, somewhere between The Simpsons and Daria, when TV animation ceased to be the sole provenance of kids drooling over their morning bowls of Lucky Charms. These days, cartoons for grown-ups are not only ubiquitous, but hilariously twisted and high-quality to boot — and that's due in large part to a phenomenon called Adult Swim. What began as a freaky little block of late-night programming has evolved into a vast, even-freakier universe of animated and live-action series with a sardonic, absurdist sense of humor that's »

A group of stereotypical best friends play a cliche game of basketball in the hilarious new clip from the upcoming spoof “They Came Together.” The film — directed by David Wain and starring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler — sends up all the insufferable tropes of romantic comedies, and this new clip via ComingSoon.net is no exception.

Adult Swim is known as a magnet for young men with its way-out-there animated and live-action series. But the cabler made a point of pitching its appeal to millennial femmes at its upfront gathering at Gotham’s Terminal 5 event space Wednesday night.
Adult Swim’s minimalist approach to an upfront presentation consists of a short animated video that unspools shortly before the start of a top-drawer musical act — this year, Outkast.
Adult Swim emphasized that it remains the cable leader with millennial viewers in the 18-34 demographic. The female composition of its audience is 43% (“No, really, why do you look so surprised?” slate read).
In a year when most networks were talking up the growth of non-linear viewing options for their shows, Adult Swim zagged and noted that on average 94% of its viewing is done live. That was a counterintuitive stat given that younger viewers are the most likely to »
