Seth Meyers unveiled the second installment of "Second Chance Theatre," in which axed SNL sketches get a mulligan, last night on NBC's Late Night — and thank God, because the absurdity and success of Jennjamin Franklin was starting to get lonely. As Meyers puts it, this latest almost-forgotten sketch features a "young dreamer who yearns to bring joy and happiness to people's lives, while also teaching them a little something in the process." It's called "Juggling Flyer," and it stars Jason Sudeikis, with a little help from Mike O'Brien, Fred Armisen, and the rest of the Second Chance Players. The skit builds slowly, but funnily, and then after a line hiccup near its latter half, gives way to some fine improv magic. »

Update: The trailer has been removed at the request of the studio. Sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.
Warner Bros. has revealed the first trailer for Will Ferrell’s upcoming comedy, Get Hard. From director Etan Cohen, the Gary Sanchez-produced pic looks primed to kickstart Ferrell’s slapstick antics, which have been sorely missing from the cinema calendar as of late.
In the movie, the former SNL star appears as hedge fund manager, James. When the millionaire is indicted for fraud, his impending stint in prison fills him with dread. Luckily, Kevin Hart’s Darnell is on hand to prepare James for all of the experiences that await him behind the bars of San Quentin.
With the first preview now available (via Yahoo! Movies), we’re able to get a sense of what’s in store for the timid chappie while he gets himself ready for prison life. »

Stand-up comic Jenny Slate didn't go from zero to breakout overnight. Typically, like many performers, she's had wins and losses--like her gig on Saturday Night Live. It wasn't a good fit, she admits now in our video interview below. Clearly, Sundance hit "Obvious Child" suited her talents perfectly, as writer-director Gillian Robespierre carefully crafted this dramedy vehicle for her. "Obvious Child" started out as a 2009 20-minute short starring Slate. After the short nabbed positive attention online and from film festivals, Robespierre went ahead with a full-fledged feature. It took more than four years to get made. She funded the film independently with private equity investors and grants--Rooftop Films, the San Francisco FIlm Society, the Tribeca Film Institute-- and finished it with Kickstarter funds. A24 acquired the film out of Sundance; it's holding well in current release. "When I read the script I thought I was very »

Andy Cohen’s got the 411 on the bubbly lead of Bravo’s new drama, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce — and we’ve got some exclusive footage of the Watch What Happens Live host sitting down with Lisa Edelstein’s Abby McCarthy.
Girlfriends’ Guide, which premieres next Tuesday (10/9c) follows Abby, a self-help author who publicly separates from her “perfect” husband (Private Practice‘s Paul Adelstein) and starts her life over as a single woman.
Abby’s Wwhl appearance in the clip below, »
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.
Jennifer Aniston was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday night to promote the new "Horrible Bosses" movie, but she also took some time for a "Friends" reunion with Lisa Kudrow via the foul-mouthed game, "Celebrity Curse Off." Lisa's face is great when she's cursing. So much intensity! It's kind of sweet that they both get upset about the b-word, considering what they're Ok with saying.
In her sit-down interview, Jen - who looked amazing - talked about the press tour for "Horrible Bosses 2," which sounds fun but also pretty tiring. She's afraid of flying, so she hasn't been to a lot of beautiful places in the world because she's too scared to fly. »

You can’t believe everything you hear on TV — not even (or perhaps especially) when it’s packaged in flannel-shirt wrapping paper, a folksy Oklahoma-accent and a corporate edict to keep the 18-49 demo rating above 3 million.
Which is why I didn’t let myself get angry or dismayed by Blake Shelton’s ridiculous exaggeration during The Voice‘s Top 10 performance episode on Monday: “This is the best live show I have ever seen in seven seasons.”
I don’t believe for a second that the country coach believes such ridiculousness — not after an evening marked by incredibly insipid song selection, »

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden remain as together as ever. The actress was joined by her rocker boyfriend at the Saturday Night Live afterparty at Ruby Foo's following her hosting gig—and, as usual, they looked very happy to be together. "They got there around 1:30 [a.m.] and spent the entire time together," a source tells E! News about the gathering. "They're very cute together, very intimate. There wasn't overt Pda, you can just tell they're really into each other." As a couple "they moved around a lot, chatting up different people in small groups," the insider added. "They stayed about two hours." So it was a late night for the »
A few more mysteries have been solved regarding Season 2 of HBO’s True Detective.
The network confirmed Monday that Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Kelly Reilly — long-rumored additions to Nic Pizzolatto’s meditative mystery series — will join the previously confirmed Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, and also offered details on the characters they’ll be playing.
McAdams has landed the role of Ani Bezzerides, “a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves,” while Kitsch is portraying Paul Woodrugh, “a war veteran and motorcycle officer for the California Highway Patrol, »
This weekend, Cameron Diaz joined SNL's ladies for a new holiday anthem, "Back Home Ballers," adding to Saturday Night Live's unofficial girl group anchored by cast members like Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong, and, of course, Lil' Baby Aidy. Every female cast member has been able to get it on this group, but that's not the sole reason we love it - the songs are hilarious, totally catchy, and relatable (who doesn't love going home for the holidays because of the treatment?). We have gathered up all the girl-group songs from the show for your enjoyment, so revisit them all and then tell us which one's your favorite. Source: NBC »
Netflix has added another sitcom to its upcoming slate, and this time, it poached its new series from a major TV network. Last week, Netflix announced that it will be the exclusive home for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a comedy co-created by Tina Fey that was initially planned as to debut on NBC. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which is co-created by Fey and Robert Carlock, stars Ellie Kemper (best known for her role in The Office) as an ex-cultist who decides to start anew in New York City. "Wide-eyed but resilient," reads a press release, "nothing is going to stand in her way." NBC, where Fey became a star thanks to her roles on Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock, initially snapped up the series and planned to use it as a mid-season replacement. NBC would've had plenty of room for it; the network has already canceled two of its new comedies. Instead, »

Constantine isn’t getting the extended demon-hunting season he was hoping for.
Related Constantine Stars Talk Det. Corrigan’s Timely Arrival, Manny’s Big Boss and Zed’s Mysterious Past
NBC has decided not to order a back nine for its freshman drama — based on DC Comics’ Hellblazer series — meaning Season 1 will end after its initial 13-episode order, our sister site Deadline reports.
But don’t go shouting the C-word just yet; Constantine is not cancelled. NBC still has the option of renewing the supernatural series for a second season.
Constantine premiered in October to 4.3 million total viewers and a »
In the three years EW has been handing out an award for the best Saturday Night Live host, men have dominated the competition. (Though it might be more accurate just to say that Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake have dominated.) Melissa McCarthy has been runner-up twice, but for the most part, guys have topped the weekly polls. As a result, we've taken to calling our best-host poll the race for Mr. Saturday Night. But it doesn't have to be, obviously. One week after Sarah Silverman was eliminated, Cameron Diaz hosted SNL, and she now faces a quartet of guys, led by Woody Harrelson. »

Tina Fey‘s new show, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, was going to be a mid-season replacement on NBC. That network, of course, is where Fey got her big break on Saturday Night Live; then it became the butt of her jokes on the award-winning sitcom 30 Rock. So it seemed like the perfect fit. However, in what seems to be […]

Waka Flocka Flame managed to upstage the American Music Awards on Sunday night when his new commercial for Pine Bros. throat lozenges aired during the award show. The spot features the pot-loving rapper surrounded in a cloud of smoke and extolling the virtues of the throat drops to aid against minor throat discomfort. Of course, the clincher is at the end of the 30-second ad, when the rapper shoots a knowing glance to the source of the smoke and says, "So the next time you need sore throat relief - for whatever reason - take your Pine Bros." The ad quickly went viral, in part due to the sheer randomness of Waka starring in a throat drops ad and the wink-wink allusions to smoking pot. In short, it looked more like a parody commercial from Saturday Night Live than a real ad. But then again, it did get everyone talking, »

How many men will she kill in this performance? 5:04 I lost count of dead ex-lovers. Is this "Fury?" Did you see that perfectly set of crazy eyes? She's on her knees pulling her best "Bad Romance."

I've said it before and I'll say it again: this new "Annie" movie looks terrible. I don't know because I haven't seen it, but still. Come on. Really. You guys. Speaking of "Annie," Cameron Diaz hosted "SNL" this week, meaning a sketch about America's favorite orphan was all but assured - and while what they turned out wasn't nearly as funny as I would have wanted (check out Michelle Wolf's "Grown Up Annie" for a superior parody), I suspect it's still better than the film it's spoofing. But okay, here we go: Leslie Jones as "Black Annie." She's big, she's brazen, she's 43, and she is still wearing that damn dress. »

Aired November 22, 2014 at 11:30 pm Et on NBC (East coast version watched for review)
When SNL is firing on all cylinders, there’s a sense of respect for its audience. “Sure,” it seems to say, “we know we’ve put out some real stinkers over the years, but you keep coming back for more, sometimes against your better judgement. So for your support and patience, here is an episode that simply doesn’t suck.” In the current state of a Saturday Night Live that is approaching 50, “doesn’t suck” is some of the highest praise it can get.
The Host: In six months, it may be genuinely hard to remember who the host of this episode was. This is not to say that Cameron Diaz is a shaky host. Quite the contrary: Diaz blends in so well with the cast that, »
