SNL Taps Darrell Hammond to Succeed Don Pardo as Announcer

1 hour ago

Live from New York, it’s Darrell Hammond’s voice!

The Saturday Night Live alum has been tapped to succeed the late, legendary Don Pardo as the show’s official announcer, USA Today reports.

“I sat in for Don when he had laryngitis several times over the years,” Hammond told the paper. “He was a lovely person. When he passed, they wanted me; it felt right for me to be the one to replace him. It’s been a very improbable life; I didn’t expect something like this, but it feels real good.”

Never underestimate the things a son will do for his mama.

Red Band Society Premiere Recap: Are These Kids All Right?

11 hours ago

It takes a gutsy TV pilot to build to a closing scene of an adorable teenage boy getting his leg amputated — and then to sell it as a moment that’s as soaring as it is heartbreaking.

But Red Band Society — a freshman drama that initially looks like over-boiled broccoli but tastes like delicious pizza — has concocted a recipe that, while not entirely perfect, manages to cut its saccharine undertones with acidic punchlines and a complex, meditative view of mortality that’s worth the price of the two or three Kleenex required to get to the closing credits.

Big Brother Recap: Four the Win

12 hours ago

In the world of professional basketball, there are few milestones more exciting and nerve-wracking than the Final Four.

In the world of Big Brother, the Final Four is just as pivotal.

If it’s not enticing enough that this week’s Head of Household is eligible to play for the crown again next week, what makes the Final Four unique is the sole eviction vote (usually cast by the Power of Veto winner). Aside from the finale, this week in the Bb house boasts the highest stakes of the summer.

14 hours ago

A change (or two) is gonna come when Season 14 of American Idol returns next January — starting with the lineup of judges at the New York City auditions and possibly percolating down to the kind of contestants being sought and the amount of torture they’ll receive from the show’s producers.

Indeed, due to the sudden death of his father-in-law, panelist Keith Urban had to sit out Tuesday and Wednesday’s callbacks at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge. But Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert stepped in alongside Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr., to hand out Golden Tickets »

Ratings: Utopia Ticks Up, New Girl and Mindy Project Premieres Down

22 hours ago

Fox’s New Girl and The Mindy Project on Tuesday returned down sharply from their previous premieres, leading as they now are out of weaker, non-sitcom programming.

Utopia opened the night with 2.4 million total viewers and a 1.0 rating (per finals) — up a tenth in the demo week-to-week and improving slightly on Glee‘s most recent Tuesdays-at-8 numbers, but a far cry from the 6 mil/2.4 that Dads/Brooklyn Nine-Nine averaged here a year ago.

Sons of Anarchy Recap: All Guns, No Roses

16 September 2014 8:15 PM, PDT

I think it’s safe to say the Sons of Anarchy went easy on us this week.

After last Tuesday’s super-sized, thoroughly brutal premiere, the final season’s second installment was much less of a roller coaster ride — y’know, as far as Sons of Anarchy episodes go.

But with this being the Sons’ final ride, even Tuesday’s tame (by comparison) hour wasn’t without its share of bloodshed.
