The Blacklist: Tom Keen Faces ‘Shocking Consequences’; Saturday Night Live’s Leslie Jones Guest Stars

2 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Tonight’s episode of The Blacklist promises plenty of action, and a truly scary villain. We all know that the scariest villains are the ones that involve children, and tonight’s episode tackles that problem head on. No Blacklister has ever been as scary as one who might be kidnapping children. Talk about terrifying. Lucky for us, we root for the good guys. Although maybe I’ve spoken too soon. According to the synopsis for tonight’s episode, Tom Keen will face “shocking consequences” for his actions. Now, we all know that Tom wasn’t really one of the “good guys”, but I’m not sure that I

Jimmy Fallon or Larry David: Whose Bernie Sanders Impression Wins?

6 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon has gotten a lot of mileage out of his spot-on Donald Trump impression, but he just broke out his best Sen. Bernie Sanders for a fake New Hampshire victory speech -- complete with references to Red Lobster, and Hillary Clinton as "She Who Must Not Be Named": Of course, Larry David has already put his stamp on Bernie Sanders for "Saturday Night Live," and Sanders even showed up on SNL last weekend alongside his impersonator. (Hillary Clinton did something similar earlier this SNL season, for a sketch with Kate McKinnon. And SNL's two past and present Hillary impersonators, Amy Poehler and McKinnon, did a sketch together. SNL is still trying to get a handle on Ted Cruz, with Taran Killam going for a pretty brutal impression this past weekend in the Cold Open.)

Fox has ordered a pilot for “Chad: An American Boy,” a comedy which will star “SNL” alum Nasim Pedrad as a 14-year-old boy in a Middle Eastern Family, Variety has learned.

The comedy follows a young teenage boy, played by Pedrad, in the throes of adolescence who is tasked with being the man of the house, which leaves him with all the responsibilities of being an adult without any of the perks.

“I’m thrilled to be able to portray a Middle Eastern family not working for or against Jack Bauer on network TV,” remarked Pedrad, who also co-wrote the script. “Also, a big thank you to Fox for understanding that my true essence is that of an awkward and misguided 14-year-old boy.”

Is Melissa McCarthy the best recurring 'SNL' host?

20 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Melissa McCarthy is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend. This puts me at ease. I think we can confirm that more than any other recurring host, the Spy star commits to ridiculous characters, crafts great moments, and brings a level of shameless audacity that no other performer can touch. The singular weirdness of her characters and their baffling universality is  Look, here she is previewing this week's hosting gig by singing the famous Kanye West jam "Butterscotch Man." Perhaps her most famous sketch character was Arlene the Office Flirt, a ravenous bandit in a swivel chair who threw herself at Jason Sudeikis and made lewd comments about balloons. It is somehow grosser than I remembered. While "unsettling" is a key characteristic of many McCarthy renderings, it is particularly awesome to see her irk a wine-guzzling women's group with her grim weirdness. The line about yogurt is hilarious (as is the »

Video: Melissa McCarthy Offers Up Polished SNL Promos - and a New (Completely Made-Up) Kanye West Song

23 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

[Youtube "sWSWlOUETdM"] Melissa McCarthy may be one of the most respected comedians working today - but that doesn't mean all of her jokes are homeruns. For proof, look no further than the Ghostbusters stars' Saturday Night Live promos, where she (intentionally) makes bad awful pun after bad pun. At a nail salon, she remarks that polish jokes are "racist" (she's confused with Polish jokes), and later asks Vanessa Bayer: "Do you think when my ladies are doing my nails I should look up at her and go 'Nailed it'?" Later she names her favorite song by musical guest Kanye West: the fictional track "Butterscotch Man. »

D'Angelo's Long Path to Black Messiah-dom

10 February 2016 1:10 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For a while, it looked like D'Angelo was going to become R&B's Axl Rose. The parallels are easy to spot: Both individuals are massively talented perfectionists whose personal struggles threatened to drown long-awaited follow-ups to early successes. In Rose's case, that would be Chinese Democracy, a Guns N' Roses album so delayed it became a running joke ("We'll have democracy in China before we have Chinese Democracy," for example), and for D'Angelo, it was the follow-up to 2000's Voodoo, which was eventually released in Dec. 2014 as Black Messiah. Black Messiah is now up for three Grammy Awards ("Really Love »

Melissa McCarthy Raps That Classic Kanye Song ‘Butterscotch Man’ in Her SNL Promos

10 February 2016 1:02 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In this week's Saturday Night Live promos, Melissa McCarthy and Vanessa Bayer chat while they get their nails done, and those ladies seem so fun, it'll make you wish you were sandwiched between them getting a pedicure. Talking about Saturday's musical guest Kanye West (hey, that rhymes!), Melissa raps a made-up Kanye jam called "Butterscotch Man," which goes something like this: "Butterscotch man, tater-tot yam, put it in my ham, butterscotch man." A tater-tot yam doesn't sound bad, actually. It kind of sounds like sweet-potato fries.  This will be Kanye's seventh performance on SNL and McCarthy's fourth time hosting. It might, however, be Kanye's first time ever singing "Butterscotch Man." »

[Sundance Review] Other People

10 February 2016 12:41 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Just a year since the cancer dramedy Me and Earl and the Dying Girl won big at Sundance, this year’s festival opened with another in the subgenre – albeit without the former’s teen-movie trappings – and it wears Sundance tropes like garlands (death, queer themes, quirky characters). Despite its tendency to fall into familiar characterizations, there’s much to like in its playful storytelling, not least from a winning performance by Jesse Plemons.

He plays David, a struggling comedy writer who returns from New York City to his childhood home in Sacramento after his mother Joanne (a terrific Molly Shannon) is diagnosed with cancer. The pilot he’s recently written has been rejected, his boyfriend (Zach Woods) has left him, and whittling away his time in his home town brings to light Sartre’s adage from No Exit that “hell is other people.”
