You can't keep him away from Saturday Night Live forever. He's Gumby, dammit. The Today show confirmed Friday morning that Eddie Murphy will take part in SNL's 40th anniversary special on Feb. 15, in what will be his first appearance on the show in more than 30 years. The comedian, 53, first revealed the news in a phone interview with News One Now. "It just never worked out where the timing was right for me to do it," he said of his three-decade absence. "They're having a 40th anniversary ... I'm going to that. And that will be the first time I've been back since I left. »

It's time to reflect on the final four! Remember week one? Everyone was so much bigger then. Memories.
Jenna Wolfe from The Today Show is at the gym as a guest trainer. Let's hope she's not excellent, since Jessie and Jen seem to be hanging on by a thread, and it'd be good to see them for another season or two. Jenna is pregnant, and wants to prove that you can still get an excellent workout when you're knocked up.
The trainers are also training under Bob's tutelage, and I have to say -- Jen can carry a ton of weight, somewhat flawlessly. "Watching Bob Harper working out three trainers... I think it's pretty amazing," Woody states. »
With the Super Bowl just around the corner, you better believe that everyone's putting the finishing touches on those much-talked about commercials! The Today show hosts Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker, Natalie Morales, Willie Geist, Tamron Hall and Hoda Kotb all got together for their ad that will air during the sports event—and photos have already been released to show us exactly what we're in for on the big day. The early morning stars were all seen walking down Avenue of the Americas in New York City, just outside of 30 Rockefeller Center, greeting fans and posing for selfies along the way. The commercial's director, Mat Whitecross, explained how he wanted to create a 30-second »
If the theatrical trailer for the mouthful of a sequel that is The Divergent Series: Insurgent didn't lay things out clearly enough for you, or just didn't offer enough footage from the film if you're already a fan, then we've got two treats for you. Two new featurettes surfaced online this week with footage from behind the scenes of the film, featuring interviews with Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet and more. They talk about the story, the larger scale production, and what we can expect from the sequel (including more, bigger simulations in the mind). It looks a little too packed, but may be an improvement. Here's one featurette for Robert Schwentke's The Divergent Series: Insurgent from eOne UK: And here's a visit to the set of the sequel from the folks at "The Today Show" on NBC: You can still watch the full theatrical trailer for The Divergent Series: Insurgent right here. »

It seems like just yesterday I laid out my favorite gown, lovingly shaved my legs (all the way up to my eyebrows) and proceeded to bronze myself in places I never knew existed (all with the help of a selfie stick).
News: Et's Full Golden Globes Coverage
The year was 2014, the night was the Golden Globes, the time... 6 a.m.? And then it hit me: Not only hadn't I been nominated, I hadn't even been invited to the after-parties. I hadn't even been able to snag a table at my favorite bar known as the Cheesecake Factory where I could sit alone with a glass of Kim Crawford and loudly comment on the proceedings to everyone's delight. (Oh, and they »
The daytime soap opera genre is slowing dying out. Series like All My Children and One Life to Live were cancelled a few years ago to pave the way for talk shows that are less expensive for the ABC network. Additionally, NBC decided to cancel Passions in 2007 to make room for another hour of the successful morning news program The Today Show. Before the all these shows were taken off the air, they were able to produce some successful actors that can be seen on many of our favorite prime-time television programs, including some major current hits like Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Following. Here are some soap opera actors that made the move from daytime to prime-time.
