Mad Men Creator Weighs In on Peggy's Future, Mega-Megan Backlash and the Season 7 Outlook

Mad Men Creator Weighs In on Peggy's Future, Mega-Megan Backlash and the Season 7 Outlook
Though Mad Men creator Matt Weiner famously holds his cards very, very (very) close to the vest, there is one thing he was willing to reveal about Season 6, when TVLine spoke with him about the AMC drama’s latest haul of 17 Emmy nominations.

Peggy, played by Elisabeth Moss, “is going to be on the show next year,” Weiner shared. “I can’t say how much, in what capacity or what [her story] is going to be, but she has not left the show.”

SNL Power Rankings: Miley Cyrus Is The Poor Man’s Emma Stone

While watching this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, a sensation not unlike déjà vu washed over me. At first, it was tough to place, considering Miley Cyrus had never before hosted the show. However, by the time the “Les Jeunes de Paris” sketch came around, I figured it out: The show’s writers gave Miley basically the same material to perform as they did when Emma Stone hosted SNL back in October. Careful watchers will note that both did Lindsay Lohan impressions, both danced it up with Taran Killam, and Lorne even decided to rerun the “Baby Spanx” commercial that first aired during Stone’s ep. What gives? Well, it’s probably this: Although I love Emma Stone’s work in film, both her and Cyrus demonstrated during their respective hosting stints that they’re not natural sketch comediennes. I can only assume that the writers panicked a

‘Voltron’ Movie Scrapped; New Cartoon & Toys on the Way

It’s been a tumultuous journey to the big screen for the live-action Voltron movie – and for the moment, that journey has come to an end.

Back in April it was announced that the project was entering reboot mode by tossing out all prior versions of the screenplay and searching for a new director. Max Makowski (Taboo) had been attached to direct up until that point, and Jeff Davis (Criminal Minds) had done a rewrite on a script by Justin Marks (Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li).

The project was initially set-up at 20th Century Fox. They later dropped the film and Relativity Media stepped in with plans to produce it on a more modest budget. It was at this stage that Marks was brought onboard to pen the…

Voltron Movie Update; New Animated Series In Development

Our friend “Thurston McQ” from Corona Coming Attractions sent us a friendly heads up regarding the status of Voltron, the iconic 80s cartoon about five people who pilot lion-shaped spaceships, which also happen to transform into a giant, sword-wielding robot.

The news is apparently good for animation fans – but not so good for movie lovers. Read on to find out more.

For a few years now there’s been some rumbling of a Voltron movie in the works. About a year back, we reported that United Talent Agency had signed on to represent Voltron creators World Event Productions in developing a live-action Voltron movie alongside producer Charles Roven’s (The Dark Knight) Atlas Entertainment brand.

Well, McQ from Cca was granted exclusive access to Wep’s offices recently, where he took the opportunity to geek out about everything Voltron while speaking with Wep’s managing director Tiffany Ilardi, and creative director Jeremy Corray.

Black Eyed Peas' Fergie Throws Some Punches On 'Saturday Night Live'

This weekend's edition of "Saturday Night Live" didn't live up to the highs of the previous week (when Taylor Swift reigned supreme over just about every aspect of the show), but it still provided a handful of laughs. Host January Jones (of the critically-acclaimed television drama "Mad Men") looked a little lost at times but still turned in some memorable moments. But most of the notable highlights came courtesy of musical guests the Black Eyed Peas. The group turned in a trio of excellent performances and managed to get the normally staid "SNL" audience to make a little noise and bang around a bit.

The quartet also delivered on the comedy front. In one of the episode's first sketches, the Peas appeared as the guests on "Today," hosted by Kathy Lee Gifford (played by Kristen Wiig) and Hoda Kotb (played by newcomer Jenny Slate). During the sketch, Wiig's Gifford starts singing,

Black Eyed Peas Beat Up Kathie Lee  - On SNL (Video)
The Black Eyed Peas were the musical guest on Saturday Night Live, with host January Jones, and they also appeared in an early sketch skewering the 4th hour of "Today" with Kathie Lee Gifford. In the last 30 seconds of the skit below, the Peas, who were supposed to be guests on the "Today" show, got sick of waiting and were angered by a drunken Kathie Lee (Kristen Wiig) singing. Fergie comes out and punches her, Taboo takes of his shoe to hit her, and best of all Apl.de.ap displays some professional wrestling moves with flying elbow drops.
