Nothing says "comedy gold" like a washed-up, humanoid horse actor with a drinking problem. That's the premise behind BoJack Horseman, a new animated series that features Will Arnett, Aaron Paul and Amy Sedaris and is set to premiere on Netflix in mid-2014.
BoJack Horseman will be the streaming service's "first original adult animated series," and it definitely has some comedic thoroughbreds in its stable. Arrested Development star Will Arnett will voice the titular horse – who, according to a press release, »

Ron Burgundy and Robin Thicke Cover Christopher Cross
10 December 2013 10:35 AM, PST
Will Ferrell (in character as Ron Burgundy) and Robin Thicke offer a novel approach to the duet format in their cover of Christopher Cross' "Ride Like the Wind" for the Anchorman 2 soundtrack. While Thicke handles most of the vocal work (aside from Burgundy's echo, heavy on the vibrato, of the refrain "such a long way to goooo"), the news anchor serves as a sort of inept hype-man, with exclamations such as "It's a hot wind!" and "Feel that draft up your skirt ladies? That's me."

10 December 2013 7:10 AM, PST
We're one week away from the season finale of The Voice and there's still no clear winner. They seem to want us to think it's Tessanne Chin, but it could just as easily be Will Champlin. Either way, it's going to be a good year for coach Adam Levine, as two of his three teammates will almost certainly be among the top three in the finals.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Croon Off-Key Duet
9 December 2013 1:20 PM, PST
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler make a stellar comedic duo but, as this new Golden Globes promo proves, their musical harmony is less than impressive. In this 30-second clip, the Saturday Night Live veterans tease their upcoming hosting gig with some adorably out-of-tune vocalizing.

Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer Discuss Ron Burgundy's Journalism Ethics
9 December 2013 11:30 AM, PST
Sure, Ron Burgundy's laughing it up on the cover of Rolling Stone, interviewing all-star quarterbacks and lending his name to institutions of higher learning, but Will Ferrell's man with the mustache has a darker side, too, his peers say.
"On-camera, he's the best. But off-camera, he's a bit of an asshole," says Chris Cuomo, host of the CNN morning show New Day. "A major prick," Wolf Blitzer chimes in as part of a new Funny or Die video that purports to pull back the curtain on Burgundy's less savory exploits. »
