'Saturday Night Live' recap: Louis C.K. is best when he's just being Louis

4 November 2012 7:02 AM, PST

I really can’t wait to see whether Louis C.K. makes an episode of Louie about hosting Saturday Night Live. The sketch show itself was fine if uneven this week, careening between dizzying highs (the cold open; that “Lincoln as Louis” short), terrifying lows (basically everything post-Update), and creamy middles (Weekend Update’s guests, with one possible exception). Behind the scenes, though, things must have been a lot more interesting — how did the cast and writers manage to compose and rehearse 90 minutes of new material despite Monday’s devastating hurricane? For that matter, how did the crew manage to build »

Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx, Tracy Morgan among stars paying tribute to Eddie Murphy

4 November 2012 6:17 AM, PST

So many Goonie-Goo-Goos, so little time.

Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx, Adam Sandler, and Russell Brand were among the throng of comedy nerds turned superstars who came out Saturday night to pay homage the man who gave the world Axel Foley, Gumby Dammit!, the Klumps, Jimmy “Thunder” Early, and on and on. Spike TV’s two-hour Eddie Murphy: One Night Only taped Saturday in Beverly Hills (it airs Nov. 14 at 10 p.m. on Spike), and if the carpet-length display of Murphy’s moniker in gold letters wasn’t enough to honor the man, the accolades inside certainly were.

PopWatch Planner: An election, Bond, a 'Twilight' battle in late night, and new 'Top Chef'

4 November 2012 6:00 AM, PST

Soon, you can look forward to a life free of pesky presidential political ads interrupting your favorite shows – well, for the next fours years anyway. This week of course, brings the much-anticipated election, along with live Daily Show and Colbert to get you through it, the premiere of Top Chef’s new season in Seattle, and an event certainly sexier than the election — Bond, James Bond.

Have a great week!

Sunday

Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden, National Geographic Channel 8 p.m.

'SNL': All the 'Fox & Friends' 'corrections' from tonight's show

3 November 2012 9:11 PM, PDT

Once more, Saturday Night Live has aired a sketch spoofing Fox News’s Fox & Friends — and once more, the bit ended with a long list of quickly scrolling “corrections from the first few hours of the show,” courtesy of an unseen fact-checking team. If you missed the bulk of these jokes, you’re in luck — we’ve reprinted the entire list below.

Transitions lenses do not reverse the gender of your eyes.

Sandy Duncan did not “sponsor” the hurricane.

There are many black people, not just one who is a master of disguise.

Louis C.K. hosts tonight's 'Saturday Night Live': Talk about it here!

3 November 2012 3:00 PM, PDT

Louis C.K.’s hosting debut, plus a cast and crew that’s had a week to rest and recharge, plus a wealth of great material courtesy of the rapidly winding-down election and Hurricane Sandy? Tonight’s SNL might just be a perfect storm of comedy — as long as it successfully marries C.K.’s pitch-black, cringe-y sensibility with the sketch show’s broader tone.

Louis himself didn’t seem too confident when he appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week. (Then again, when does Louis ever seem confident?) He told the SNL vet that during a laugh-free table read, »

Crashing and burning in 'Flight' -- no airplane required

3 November 2012 10:14 AM, PDT

Flight is not always an easy movie to watch. To start with, if you have just a teensy little bit of flying phobia, prepare to sit through a most harrowing and horrifying plane crash. Denzel Washington, playing pilot Whip Whitaker (one of the greatest character names in some time, don’t you think?), must control a commercial airliner in mechanical failure and get it to the ground as safely as possible under impossible conditions. Whip stays cool and collected while everyone around him — from flight attendants to co-pilot to passengers — quite rightly falls apart, and he manages to pull off a mind-boggling feat of flying. »

'Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together' telethon was a classy and inspiring hour

2 November 2012 9:16 PM, PDT

Whether or not you found NBC’s Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together benefit telethon as “enormously entertaining” as host Matt Lauer promised it would be, it was a celebrity-packed hour of television that effectively reminded everyone of how devastating the damage has been while calling for action. A lot more people now know to text Redcross to 90999 or go to iTunes.com/redcross to donate money to disaster relief — plus we got to see Jimmy Fallon rock out with music legends. ”Jimmy Fallon is a bold man to take the lead vocals from Steven Tyler, Bruce Springsteen, and Billy Joel,” Jon Stewart »

Weather Channel's Eric Fisher journals his on-the-scene coverage of Hurricane Sandy

2 November 2012 2:46 PM, PDT

As coverage continues of the devastation left in Hurricane Sandy’s wake, we asked Weather Channel field reporter Eric Fisher, who began the storm in Rhode Island and then made his way to New York City, to describe his experience.  

By Eric Fisher

I was at my desk on Oct. 15 when I called over a co-worker to ogle my computer screen. It’s not what you think; we were looking at computer models. And this one in particular caught our eye. It predicted a huge storm, riding up the East Coast with all manner of weather attached to it, set to arrive near Halloween. »

The 10 'Twilight' sequels we want Stephenie Meyer to write

2 November 2012 1:24 PM, PDT

At a press conference to promote The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, author Stephenie Meyer suggested that she might add more books to her Twilight world. Naturally, we’ve compiled 10 story lines we’d love to have Meyer continue. Click below to see our list. (Slight spoilers ahead!)

10. Leah’s story

Leah got shafted in Breaking Dawn. Yes, she’s in Jacob’s pack and away from the heartbreak of Sam and Emily,  but she still hates the Cullens, and now she’s bound to them because of Jacob and Renesmee. Give this girl something better to do than sulk. »

Stephenie Meyer says more 'Twilight' books a possibility, but not today

2 November 2012 10:48 AM, PDT

Just when you thought it was over, it’s not!

Twilight author Stephenie Meyer refused to commit to the rumor that she may write additional volumes of her already elaborate teen vampire saga at a press conference for the final film in the series, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. She did say, however, the idea of more blood, sex and tears in future books wasn’t impossible either.

In fact, she admitted to having already thought through the entire story. “I planned out where it would go for a couple more books,” she said. “So, I knew exactly what would happen, »

George Clooney is distantly related to Abraham Lincoln -- Seven other celebs with famous ancestors

2 November 2012 9:20 AM, PDT

On Thursday, Ancestry.com revealed that George Clooney is related to our very own 16th president, one Abraham Lincoln (not the vampire hunter). Indeed, the silver fox (by which I refer to Lincoln, of course) is the half-first cousin five times removed of ER’s most handsome doctor.

What does this mean in the grand scheme of things? Absolutely nothing, except you know Daniel Day-Lewis is jealous. (The Lincoln star embodies the 16th president in every way save for one — Blood.) But in honor of this revelation, we’ve assembled a list of seven other celebrities with famous ancestors so »

'Twilight' is over! The cast shares memories, regrets and weird fan encounters

2 November 2012 9:05 AM, PDT

“I don’t have to walk away,” actress Kristen Stewart told a room full of reporters at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills during her final American press conference for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

Yep, the phenomenon that you couldn’t get enough of (or get away from, whichever your feeling on Twilight), is coming to screeching halt with the release of the final movie November 16.

Is Stewart glad it’s all finally over? The 22-year-old actress who essentially grew up on the set of Twilight movies, (the first one was filmed in 2008 when she was just 17), is relieved. »

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner's first 'Breaking Dawn' interview together -- Video

2 November 2012 8:55 AM, PDT

Awkwardness or no awkwardness, the Twilight trio have a movie to promote, and last night Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner made their first joint appearance since The Event last summer on MTV First.

I’m no body language expert, but I’ve studied my fair share of tabloids, and I would say that the interview was just as goofy and awkward as appearances by the trio normally are. Pattinson and Stewart joked around with each other — and, because I know you’re wondering, both joked around with Lautner too. Poor Lautner. Stuck in the middle of it all. »

Jon Bon Jovi tours post-Sandy Jersey: 'It's hard to see your hometown devastated like this' -- Video

2 November 2012 8:38 AM, PDT

For many celebrities, Hurricane Sandy literally hit home — which explains why they’re so eager to help the storm’s victims. New Jersey native Jon Bon Jovi, for instance, was in London when Sandy hit. But within days, he returned to the U.S. and got to work touring damage in the Garden State, urging his fellow Americans to donate to relief efforts, and preparing to perform in NBC’s upcoming Hurricane Sandy benefit concert.

The musician appeared visibly shaken on the Today show this morning, where he described the devastating experience of seeing firsthand how Sandy had destroyed his hometown. »

Psy finally learns how to Dougie -- Video

2 November 2012 8:01 AM, PDT

We all knew this time would come: Psy, who introduced the world to Gangnam Style, has finally learned how to Dougie. Dance worlds have collided! The year 2010 and 2012 have become one!

The always-dapper Psy was taught how to Dougie (taught, taught how to Dougie) by New.Music.Live.’s Lauren Toyota during a recent interview. Psy’s swagger and erratic arm gestures weren’t up to par, but his “Doug E. Fresh” move more than made up for it. Let’s just say he added his unique flare to the mix. It looks like supermodel Kate Upton and gymnast Gabby Douglas »

On 'Hannity,' Clint Eastwood proves once more that he's better with a script -- Video

2 November 2012 7:43 AM, PDT

Whether you agree or disagree with what he’s saying, the way Clint Eastwood speaks in his Romney Super Pac ad is impressively straightforward and effective. But when the Oscar winner goes off book — as in his famous appearance at the Republican National Convention this summer — he doesn’t sound quite so concise.

Case in point: Eastwood’s rambling appearance on Hannity last night, in which the Republican celeb reiterated his support for Governor Romney and his disapproval of President Obama. While Sean Hannity had no trouble articulating his own views — “I tried to warn people about who I thought »

'X Factor' on-the-scene report: How Britney interacts with her fans, more Emblem3 moments

2 November 2012 7:11 AM, PDT

Last night, The X Factor pulled off its second live show of the season without any wardrobe malfunctions. Viewers watching at home saw some stellar and some not-so-stellar performances, Mario Lopez daring to correct Simon Cowell, a recently announced safe Jason Brock awkwardly struggling to pick between hugging the eliminated David Correy or embracing host Khloé Kardashian, and some over-eager Emblem3 boys tripping all over each other. But what didn’t make it onscreen last night? EW was on the scene for Thursday’s live taping. Read on to learn five things that were going on in the studio during »
