Bristol Palin Reveals Future Daughter's Unique Name (Sorry, Kristin Cavallari)

24 November 2015 8:08 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Bristol Palin isn't changing the name she picked out for her future daughter just because another celebrity mom used it first—sorry, Kristin Cavallari. Sarah Palin's daughter, who is currently pregnant with her second child, announced her baby girl-to-be's name on Instagram Monday. Bristol, 25, shared a photo of two items baring a "Sailor" monogram—her visual proof, perhaps, that she'd decided on the moniker before Kristin and Jay Cutler announced their little girl's name was Saylor (different spelling). Bristol also posted a caption, which read: "when you find out @kristincavallari named her baby the exact name you are naming yours...what a weird »

Sarah Palin Talks Donald Trump's Success, Louis C.K. Apology on 'Late Night'

24 November 2015 7:09 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Sarah Palin visited Late Night With Seth Meyers to talk Donald Trump, Syrian refugees and Louis C.K. In the interview, Meyers circled back to the Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary special in February where – during a question-and-answer portion – the former Republican vice presidential candidate asked Jerry Seinfeld how much Lorne Michaels would pay her to run for president. She then sweetened the pot so SNL could have more comedic fodder: Donald Trump would be her vice president pick. Fast forward to November and Trump is now the Republican frontrunner.

Louis C.K. Is Still Really, Really Sorry About Those Sarah Palin Tweets

24 November 2015 6:30 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Back in April, Louis C.K. told a touching story about apologizing to Sarah Palin at SNL 40 for a string of vulgar tweets he sent about her back in 2010. On Monday night, Palin told Seth Meyers her side of the story, in which she didn't really know who Louis was and hadn't seen the tweets he was talking about. Still, though, an apology is an apology. Then the conversation turned to the presidential race, which is when Palin said that Donald Trump's candidacy was a sign that America was ready for more "diversity." What a world! »

Best of Late Night TV: Adele's Box of Lies and 'Star Wars' as a Romantic Comedy

24 November 2015 4:03 AM, PST | 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.

It was "Star Wars" night over on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," and let's just say the show put their own spin on the film's trailer. Welcome to "Star Wars" as a romantic comedy. Because sometimes the greatest force of love. *weeps*

Jimmy Kimmel also had to deal with a suicidal Chewbacca, who threatened to throw himself off a building until eventually settling his feud with Harrison Ford. Turns out Chewy had an affair with Ford's wife, so file this under #GalaxyFarFarAwayDrama. *Also this clip features "Hello" by Adele, so prepare your eyes accordingly.

Speaking of Adele, she showed up on "The Tonight Show" and played "Box of Lies" with Jimmy Fallon. »

Sarah Palin Says Us Can’t Have ‘Absolute Safety’ Without Losing ‘Freedom’ (Video)

23 November 2015 10:47 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin stopped by “Late Night With Seth Meyers” on Monday and had some surprisingly welcoming things to say about the Syrian refugee crisis. She began by defending the many governors who have objected to housing those fleeing the war-torn country. “Their message is not, ‘We do not want Syrian refugees,'” Palin said. “Their message is, ‘What is the vetting process? How do we know that these are the innocents coming over … and they’re not the bad guys infiltrating?'” When Meyers noted that there was an 18- to 24-month screening process before any refugee would enter the U. »

Sarah Palin ''Happy'' About Bristol Palin's Second Pregnancy, Views Future Granddaughter as a ''Blessing''

15 November 2015 6:13 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Sarah Palin is speaking candidly about her daughter's second pregnancy. Shortly after Bristol Palin passed the 34-week mark, her mom is putting on a positive front as the due date quickly approaches this holiday season. "I can't wait for about 45 more days, and I'm gonna have a little baby granddaughter," Sarah shared on CBS Sunday Morning. "And I'm happy about it." Reporter Tracy Smith, who traveled to Sarah's home in Alaska for the personal interview, couldn't help but wonder if this is what Sarah pictured her daughter's life to be like at 25-years-old. "That can't be how you saw this playing out," she asked. "Unmarried »

The 'SNL' alum who called Donald Trump 'a lout, a boor, and a jerk'

5 November 2015 5:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I'm sick of Donald Trump's "SNL" hosting appearance and it's still a few days away. There are organized protests, casual musings about how and if he'll be "funny," and a lingering sense that Trump truly believes this will make him look cool. Fortunately we have an "SNL" alum offering her perspective on the presidential hopeful, and it's not a rosy one. Nora Dunn, the five-season "SNL" alumna who played one half of the Sweeney Sisters with the late Jan Hooks, weighed in on Trump's upcoming appearance with a HuffPost column about how "SNL" has changed and why the Donald won't be the first or last time the show is disappointing.    There have been many incredible moments and big laughs and eye-popping craziness on Saturday Night Live. And that will continue, I hope. The show is part of our collective conscious. Trumps' appearance will not be a shining moment, but »

Congressional Hispanic Caucus Opposes Donald Trump Appearance on NBC’s ‘SNL’

2 November 2015 10:12 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus urged NBCUniversal and “Saturday Night Live” producer Lorne Michaels to “disinvite” Donald Trump from hosting this weekend’s broadcast of the program due to the real-estate mogul and Presidential candidate’s recent remarks about Mexicans and Latinos.

The Caucus’ “Statement of Opposition” was approved by two-thirds of its 26 members., who serve in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. The group cited a range of factors, including NBCU parent Comcast’s assurances during hearings on its now-defunct efforts to merge with Time Warner Cable that it was committed to diversity and the idea that Trump’s remarks have made Latinos and Hispanics fearful, as reasons for its stance.

At issue are comments Trump made early in his campaign about his ideas that people of Latino origin were responsible for rapes and the importation of drugs to the United States. Other parties have »

Film Review: ‘The Armor of Light’

1 November 2015 6:17 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Brothers and sisters, Fox News and the NRA are not spiritual authorities.” It’s one of many mic-drop moments at the pulpit for Rob Schenck, the evangelical minister speaking out against what he sees as an unholy marriage of Christianity and gun culture in “The Armor of Light.” Although likely to court accusations of one-sidedness and manipulation, this emotionally charged, theologically astute directing debut from longtime documentary producer Abigail E. Disney feels entirely welcome for its sharp, intelligent presentation of a rarely aired point of view: Here are principled believers willing to preach against the choir, and doing so with a nuanced conviction born of painful personal experience. It’s precisely the sort of faith-based provocation that Christian leaders would be far better off recommending to their congregations than the likes of “God’s Not Dead,” which is not to imply that Disney’s lesson in loving, compassionate dissent should be heard by churchgoers alone. »

Larry David's Bernie Sanders and America's best political impressions

19 October 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Curb Your Enthusiasm star and former Saturday Night Live writer added to the long list of political doppelgangers the show has produced, but was his impression better than Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin or Dana Carvey’s George Bush Sr?

Everyone in America today is screaming about laying underwear on the radiator.

In the perfect marriage of artist and repertoire, Larry David’s pinch hit during Saturday Night Live’s spoof of the Democratic debate was an instant sensation. David was a writer for SNL during the 1984-85 season, and only one of his sketches actually made it to air, but like a fine wine gathering dust in the dark, he emerged robust and full-throated, ready to poke fun at the zeitgeist’s most unlikely pop star. Who better to scream and yell about the indignities of the everyman than a guy who’s been doing just that his whole career? »

Watch Larry David's Hilarious 'SNL' Bernie Sanders Impersonation

19 October 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This week's episode of Saturday Night Live, hosted by Tracy Morgan, peaked early with the show's most brilliant casting coup since Tina Fey transformed herself into Sarah Palin. It may have been inevitable that SNL's cold-opening skit was going to riff on the first Democratic debate, but the sketch still managed to be full of surprises, including Alec Baldwin as frustrated Senator Jim Webb and — in the role that he's been rehearsing to play for his entire adult life — Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David as curmudgeonly firebrand Bernie Sanders. »

Why Some Bernie Sanders Fans Are Angry About Larry David's 'SNL' Debate

19 October 2015 3:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Larry David's impression of Bernie Sanders on "Saturday Night Live" was more than pretty, pretty good, but several Bernie backers were angered by this past weekend's cold open debate sketch.

Larry's portrayal was a hit, even with Bernie himself, who quipped to ABC's "This Week" that his team might use the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star at their next rally. "He does better than I do." However, the Democratic Debate sketch was accused of being too pro Hillary Clinton. The real Hillary was on SNL earlier this season, and the SNL debate -- which included Alec Baldwin as Jim Webb -- was framed from the perspective of Hillary as the inevitable choice. The sketch even even had Kate McKinnon's Hillary end her closing statement with the "sobering thought" that "If you get into bed with Bernie Sanders tonight, you're going to wake up with Donald Trump tomorrow."

Larry David Played Bernie Sanders on Saturday Night Live and He Did Not Disappoint

18 October 2015 7:13 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As with Tina Fey and Sarah Palin, Saturday Night Live responded to the requests of the people and got Larry David to play Bernie Sanders in last night's parody of the Democratic Debate. The one-time SNL writer was pretty, pretty, pretty fantastic as the junior senator from Vermont. There to do a 30 Rock bit during Tracy Morgan's monologue, the show also got Alec Baldwin to play the overconfident grump Jim Webb. Still, no matter which polls you cite, it was clear Sanders at least won this debate. »

Why Donald Trump and ‘Mainstream Media’ Have a Symbiotic Relationship

13 October 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Like all good conservatives, Donald Trump has to go through the motions of expressing contempt for the mainstream (pardon, “lamestream”) media and liberal Hollywood. And like any good show-business romance, that animosity means he secretly can’t get enough of them, and vice versa.

The announcement that the mogul and reality-tv personality turned Gop presidential candidate will host “Saturday Night Live” follows in a long tradition of this symbiotic relationship between conservative political figures and the TV business. That’s because both clearly benefit from and feed off the other, with media types embracing the attention that Trump garners, whatever they might think of his politics, while Trump obviously can’t resist opportunities to bask in the spotlight and free exposure.

In that regard, Trump’s turn into politics is increasingly becoming the mirror image of Sarah Palin, who became an instant media darling when John McCain tapped a then-obscure »

Bristol Palin Attacks Washington School That's Allegedly Giving IUDs to 10-Year-Old Students

9 October 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Never one to censor her political feelings, Bristol Palin is forging a new attack over claims that a Seattle school is providing 10-year-old students with IUDs, an intrauterine device implanted to prevent conception.  "Do you remember what it was like to be a 10 year old?" the 24-year-old pregnant mother begins in a post on her blog. "I remember being an unabashed tomboy concerned with playing outside and acing 5th grade." Sarah Palin's daughter continues on to reference an article asserting that students were receiving the procedure in school free of charge.

BFI London Film Festival 2015: ‘SNL’ doc ‘Live from New York!’ lacks bite

Live from New York!

Directed By Bao Nguyen

USA, 2015

Many successful comedians and comics are incubated in nurturing, yet deeply competitive environments. The various comedy clubs on the East and West coast of the Us spawned many of the post-war titans, such as Richard Pryor, Joan Rivers and George Carlin, bathing them in the blood of occasionally hostile, alcohol-fueled, combative audiences. In the UK, since the 1970’s both the Oxford and Cambridge performing arts groups have produced class-connected troupes and entities as diverse as Monty Python, Fry & Laurie, The It Crowd, Peep Show, and even John Oliver of Last Week Tonight, a solid grounding which would often lead to high profile series and sitcoms on UK terrestrial television.

In the USA, however, all roads lead to Saturday Night Live, the most famous and ingrained cultural osmosis of comedy and contemporary culture, which has gestated talents as diverse as Dan Aykroyd, »
