New 'Ask Drew’: What can we take away from the 'Star Wars’ trailer?

9 December 2014 11:20 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We're coming down to it. We'll probably only have one more "Ask Drew" before the end of 2014, but it's been fun to see how well it's gone so far. The video team tells me there are always way more questions than we can use, and they love the breadth of stuff you guys ask about. I'll admit that I may have stammered my way through one of my answers this week a little more than normal. I've always tried to stick to a couple of simple broad rules in what kind of material I'll publish about film: no gossip, no numbers, no Oscars. I'm sure I've broken all of those rules at some point, but for the most part, I stick to them. When I was asked what my feelings are about dealing with the art of someone who has a public scandal about their personal lives, I'm not sure »

Bill Cosby standup review: at 77, still strikingly casual and effortlessly skilled

10 November 2014 11:21 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

New York Comedy festival, Carnegie Hall

Taking the stage amid clouds of controversy, the comic delivered a meticulous set that confirmed his standup mastery

From slaves to the sidewalk: Bill Cosbys African art collection in pictures

Mention the name Bill Cosby to a comedy fan these days, and his or her mind is likely to immediately go to the Hannibal Buress routine that went viral several weeks ago, which addressed the sexual assault allegations that have followed Cosby for decades. (Cosby has never discussed the accusations, and Buress himself avoided the controversial topic at his show the night before.) Nonetheless, the claims hung in the air on Saturday night, where Cosby performed as part of the New York comedy festival. Sitting in the audience at Carnegie Hall, the photo of Cosby with Nelson Mandela that is projected onto the back of the stage almost feels like a cynical ploy to »

Kenan Thompson’s SNL Days May Be Numbered

22 September 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Saturday Night Live might be losing yet another big star, Kenan Thompson. The funny man who played Fat Albert in a movie and was a former teen idol, admits he may not last beyond the current season of SNL. He has been on the series for a long time and might be itching to spread his wings on his own. However, it appears this idea has been on his mind for a while. Rumor has it that he was not planning to return this season but stayed at the request of Lorne Michaels. However, it appears he may have nothing to hold him back this time around.

Will you miss Kenan? I would, he has certainly proven himself to a great actor with a lot of talent. He can hold his own easily as well as be able to play many roles. Despite of this talent, he has been overlooked »

Summer sitcom rewind: 'The Cosby Show' - 'Theo's Holiday'

11 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We're continuing this periodic summer project where we revisit classic sitcom episode. Last week, we did a "NewsRadio" double feature, and today we're going to talk about one of my favorite episodes of "The Cosby Show," called "Theo's Holiday," coming up just as soon as my corporate headquarters has 49 floors but no phone... Periodically throughout the latter half of the 20th century, various TV genres would be declared dead and buried. Some of them actually stayed dead, more or less, like the Western, while others lay fallow, waiting for the right show to bring the public mood back to it. In the early '80s, the sitcom was the genre being put out to pasture, falling behind dramas of various stripes, from the lofty ambitions of "Hill Street Blues" and "St. Elsewhere" to the soapy environs of "Dallas" and "Dynasty" to the comedy/drama/action mix of "Magnum, P.I. »
