Jim Breuer doesn't care about being ranked 139 out of 141 on Rolling Stone's infamous "SNL" cast ranking -- he just has a problem with Rs writer Rob Sheffield's tone. "I lost all respect for Rolling Stone, because I didn’t care about the list. It’s what that guy wrote about people," Breuer railed on Wednesday's "Howard Stern Show." "Like, there were cast members like, 'Oh this douchebag.' Like why would you -- people are just trying to make a living, and what kind of douche -- where are you at in your life -- that gives you the right to stand there and go, 'Number 134, this guy, I wish he would die.'" You can listen to Breuer's full comments below. #JusticeforCheri [via Uproxx] »

With a constant flow of thrilling success stories about superyoung celebrity megastars - like Jennifer Lawrence, Ansel Elgort, and Kendall Jenner, to name a few - it can be easy to think you're going nowhere fast. But what we often neglect to remember is that plenty of celebrities don't achieve success until later in life. Kristen Wiig didn't start delivering all those SNL zingers until she was 32, and Jon Hamm didn't start delivering his memorable performances until he was almost 40! Even the endlessly stunning Lupita Nyong'o didn't receive industry praise until she was 30, when she won an Oscar for her role in 12 Years a Slave. Still doubting that you can achieve plenty after your 20s? Keep reading to see all the huge stars who hit it big later in life. »
There wasn't a telephone in sight. For the inaugural celebration of the goofy and good-hearted Red Nose Day in America, NBC invited seemingly everyone in Hollywood to hang out at New York City's own Hammerstein Ballroom for three hours in an attempt to "be funny for money" — and it didn't require a single participant to awkwardly answer a phone on stage in order to collect donations.
The British import (it was partially conceived of by director Richard Curtis, which means it's about as British as Love, Actually) brings together »
Just in time for Memorial Day weekend, here’s a Wet Hot American kick-off to your summer.
Netflix on Friday released the first images from its prequel to the 2001 cult comedy film, and Camp Firewood is definitely open for the season.
Per Netflix, its forthcoming First Day of Camp 8-episode series will bring us the opening of the camp’s “famous summer season, now 14 years after the film’s debut.”

“Do something funny for money” was the slogan of NBC’s inaugural “Red Nose Day” telecast, a live three-hour show that helped raise more than $21 million to aid children living in poverty in the U.S. and abroad.
The telecast that originated Thursday from New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom went off with only a few minor hitches that were probably not visible to the viewing audience at home.
Seth Meyers, David Duchovny and Jane Krakowski each hosted an hour of the program that blended pitches from stars such as Julianne Moore, Olivia Wilde and Gwenyth Paltrow with taped comedy segments produced by Funny or Die and in-studio bits from “Saturday Night Live’s” Colin Jost, Michael Che and Jay Pharaoh, as well as Billy Eichner and Josh Groban.
In between the entertainment, short films featuring celebrity appeals on behalf of specific causes struck a serious note. Jack Black traveled »

I am a game show zealot. I believe in the umber glow of Chuck Woolery and the sneering capabilities of Paul Lynde. I'm also a rabid fan of trivia; I was on "Jeopardy!" a couple weeks ago and Gsn's "The Chase" before that. Every time network TV rolls out a new primetime trivia-based game show, I'm listening and hopeful and there -- and I have three spring-loaded requests: 1) Please, Jesus, anything but more "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?"-type lighting; 2) Good lord, no more multiple choice questions; 3) Make me love you, new show. I want to love you. Embrace me, you child. Last year we got the Ryan Seacrest-hosted "Million Second Quiz," a multiple-choice bonanza with "Millionaire" lighting that was tedious and unchallenging (read: not lovable). You can understand my devastation there. "500 Questions" is this year's new primetime trivia attempt. Hosted by CNN journalist Richard Quest, "500 Questions" airs »

"Come on, not the crazy bitch." -- Dawn Hurley (Joan Cusack) in "Welcome to Me" Shira Piven's "Welcome to Me" has been in limited theaters and on iTunes since the first of the month, and it's racked up praise from a number of critics, including Variety's Justin Chang ("A strange and often startlingly inspired media/mental-illness comedy") and the New York Times' A.O. Scott ("Defies expectations and easy categorization, forgoing obvious laughs and cheap emotional payoffs in favor of something much odder and more interesting"). Given that this is one of the few movies ever to specifically name Borderline Personality Disorder (Bpd) as the cause of its lead character's troubles, I wanted to be on board with it. I really, really wanted to be. I'm no Bpd expert, but I've tried my best to educate myself on what is an extremely complex, destructive, deadly (the suicide rate of patients »

Lets put it all on the operating table lay it out ass to mouth as it were. I saw the first film meh. Never saw the first sequel and now after this yawnfest probably wont. The Human Centipede III admittedly had a few good moments but as my husband so aptly offered It was like one of those Saturday Night Live sketches which just went on too long. Indeed its an interesting concept but could be done more efficiently and effectively in a short film format certainly a feature film trilogy was unnessacary especially since the envelope pushing in this final film barely registered. »
Read More: Watch: George Miller and The Toecutter Warn Us Not to Talk or Text in New 'Mad Max' PSA The latest installment of the Alamo Drafthouse's "Don't Talk" PSA series features that angry voice inside our head telling our fellow audience members at the movies to put their phones away already! The Drafthouse team chose the perfect personification of that rage, too: our favorite angry comedian Lewis Black ("Lewis Black's Root of All Evil"), who voices the character of Anger in the upcoming film "Inside Out." Disney and Pixar's newest feature follows the personified emotions inside the head of Riley and her parents as they move from the Midwest to the West Coast and adjust to a new life in San Francisco. Amy Poehler ("Parks and Recreation'), Bill Hader ("Saturday Night Live"), Mindy Kaling ("The Mindy Project") and Phyllis Smith ("The Office") star alongside Black as »

In any medium, the fringe — as opposed to the mainstream — is often where the greatest risk-taking happens, and television is no exception. Late night television comedy — most notably David Letterman and Saturday Night Live (and going back to Ernie Kovacs, but all TV was a petri dish then), always has represented the progressive forefront and unsupervised playground of network television. The phrase "not ready for prime time players" perhaps best describes the landscape of late night. But slowly, over years and decades, the mainstream shifts to embrace what once was the fringe. Indeed, yesterday's weirdo in

Tonight’s show will be the final episode of David Letterman’s tenure as the host of Late Night, marking the end of a 33 year run for the comedian as a host of late night television, who will be succeeded by Stephen Colbert. One the course of his tenure, Letterman has proven himself an iconic figure, with many of his segments becoming hits on their own, along with counterpart and Johnny Carson successor Jay Leno, becoming synonymous with late night comedy for a generation of aspirational comedians.
One of those comedians, Jimmy Fallon, paid tribute to Letterman on Monday’s show. Fallon himself has gone on to be an accomplished comedian in his own right, becoming a writer and performer on Saturday Night Live before being named Jay Leno’s successor. Fallon’s tribute can be seen below.

NBC singing competions “The Voice” crowned its Season 8 champion on Tuesday night. Sawyer Fredericks from Team Pharrell took home the top honors. Behind the big winner, Megan Lindsey was runner-up, Joshua Davis came in third and Koryn Hawthorne finished fourth. As part of the prize package, Sawyer is set to appear on the “Today” show Thursday. Also on Tuesday, NBC released a pretty funny video of “Voice” judge Christina Aguilera doing fairly spot-on impressions of Britney Spears, Shakira, Lady Gaga, Cher, Sia and Miley Cyrus. The “Genie in a Bottle” singer took a page out of “Saturday Night Live’s” impersonations manual, »

Fox is betting big on Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk this fall with the American Horror Story creators’ campy horror-comedy Scream Queens, and now that the first full trailer for the anthology series has been released, it’s easy to see why – seemingly every teen idol this side of Disney pops up in the preview.
Emma Roberts (Unfabulous), The Nine Lives of Chloe King‘s Skyler Samuels, Glee‘s Lea Michele and Keke Palmer (True Jackson, VP) are seemingly taking on the biggest roles in a cast that also boasts Abigail Breslin, Nasim Pedrad, Oliver Hudson, Billie Lourd, Diego Boneta, Glen Powell, Lucien Laviscount, Niecy Nash, Nick Jonas and Ariana Grande. Oh – and original Scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis is on hand to provide the series’ real horror credentials (unless you want to count Breslin’s Zombieland and Haunter, which is entirely valid).

Of course, tonight is David Letterman's final night as host of the Late Show, but it's also Paul Shaffer's last night as his bandleader. To celebrate Shaffer's 33 years in late night (40 if you include Saturday Night Live), Vulture asked another late-night bandleader, Fred Armisen, to pay tribute. Dan Reilly spoke with Armisen for this as-told-to piece. I didn't decide to join Late Night With Seth Meyers as his bandleader. My life is, "Do you want to try this?" "Yes." "Do you want do this?" "Okay." If someone asked me to do a Spanish soap opera tomorrow, I'd say, "Let me try it. Let me see what that's like." It was Lorne Michaels's idea. I had finished SNL, and they were trying different things out for Seth's band. Maybe it was going to be a DJ, maybe it was going to be nothing — and then Lorne Michaels »

There were three losers and only one winner on The Voice‘s Season 8 finale — that is, if you chose to look at the Starbucks-sponsored plastic cup as half full.
If, however, like Blake, your glass had even a splash of moonshine left in it, maybe there were no losers at all.
British actress Imogen Poots is in talks to play Andy Samberg‘s love interest in the untitled Universal comedy from the Lonely Island and Apatow Productions, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap. Samberg stars as a rapper who reunites with his former boy band after his latest solo album flops. His fellow “SNL” alums Sarah Silverman and Tim Meadows will co-star as his sarcastic publicist and overworked manager, respectively.
