19 Times Amy Poehler Said What We Wish We'd Said

20 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Most people already know that Amy Poehler is wickedly funny, but with her new book, Yes Please, more people will get to discover all the amazing other facets of the SNL alum and Parks and Recreation star: the feminist, introspective, inspiring, vulnerable, empowering ones. Yes Please, out on Oct. 28, is a welcome mishmash of anecdotes, memories, essays, and advice. Here's a selection of some of the most unforgettable quotes from Amy inside its pages. On Growing Up and Aging "Keep your virginity for as long as you can, until it starts to feel weird to you. Then just get it over with." "Once a woman turns 40 she has to start dealing with two things: younger men telling her they are proud of her and older men letting her know they would have sex with her." "Fighting aging is like the War on Drugs. It's expensive, does more harm than good, »

Feminism Flashback: Remember When the World Freaked Out About Murphy Brown?

21 hours ago | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

-Aly Semigran

November 14 will mark 26 years since the CBS sitcom Murphy Brown hit the airwaves. The series, which ran for 10 seasons and won 18 Emmy Awards (including a record-breaking five Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series wins for star Candice Bergen), also happened to be at the forefront of a political firestorm in its heyday. A show about a 40-something single mother and career woman (!) touched such a nerve that the Vice President of the United States singled out the show as an example of the decay of family values in America.

During a campaign speech on May 19, 1992, then-vp Dan Quayle stated, “Failing to support children one has fathered is wrong. We must be unequivocal about this. It doesn’t help matters when primetime TV has Murphy Brown, a character who supposedly epitomizes today’s intelligent, highly paid professional woman, mocking the importance of fathers by bearing a child alone »

Rob Lowe Surfs Until He Bleeds and More of What You Missed on Instagram

22 hours ago | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

This weekend the uber handsome Rob Lowe proved that he is both ageless and fearless — literally.

The former Parks and Recreation star showed off his beach body, as well as a nasty cut on his leg after a surfing adventure gone wrong. For those concerned, fear not: Lowe also updated his Instagram feed with a snapshot of his leg getting stitched up, so rest assured the 50-year-old Dilf will be back to normal in no time. Meanwhile, North West turned that frown upside down, Khloe Kardashian debuted a new hairstyle that may be just as controversial as Beyoncé‘s bangs, and Lindsay Lohan has us thinking she can throw down in the kitchen… for now.

Find out what The Gossip Table has to say about Khloe’s new ‘do.

Parks and Recreation’s Billy Eichner to Guest Star In New Girl Christmas Episode

17 October 2014 8:14 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Great news, New Girl fans. New Girl is doing a Christmas episode again this season after taking a year off from doing one in Season 3 (and right there is where I think Season 3 went wrong—you always have a Christmas episode when you can, even if it might air in November). However, even bigger news than the New Girl Christmas episode itself is who will be guest starring in it. According to TVLine, who first reported the casting news, Billy Eichner of Billy on the Street and Parks and Recreation will be appearing in the holiday-themed installment of New Girl as a “Grinch-like character” named Barry, a “beleaguered airline representative the gang encounters at the airport; he’s tired of dealing with holiday travelers and Christmas itself.” In addition to Billy on the Street and Parks and Recreation, Eichner’s other credits include voicing Mr. Ambrose on Bob’s Burgers »

NBC Trying Again to Remake 'It Crowd'

17 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

NBC is pressing control-alt-delete on "The It Crowd."

The network is once again trying to reboot the popular British comedy. According to Deadline, uber-producer Bill Lawrence ("Cougar Town," "Scrubs") has signed a deal for a put pilot (if it doesn't air, it earns a fee).

"The It Crowd" follows the workplace shenanigans of two tech support workers who a bit socially-inept. They have to deal with a new female boss, who is a bit computer-inept.

This is the second time NBC has tried to make an American version of "The It Crowd." In 2006, it picked up a pilot starring Joel McHale of "Community," but the series never filmed more episodes. McHale then headlined "Community," which went to run for six five seasons and a movie sixth season on Yahoo.

NBC is clearly looking to shore up its comedy lineup. With the departure of "Parks and Recreation" after this season, and »

The 50 Funniest Women of the Past 50 Years: #20-11

16 October 2014 1:52 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny. We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »

Amy Poehler on the effects of cocaine and ecstasy.

First she got real about divorce, and now it's on to drug use -- Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler has nothing to hide.

In her new memor Yes, Please, the beloved Saturday Night Live alum, 43, and Tina Fey bestie admits using both cocaine and ecstasy in her 20s.

The chapter, aptly titled "Obligatory Drug Stories" (via The Mirror), offers this candid confession: "I tried cocaine, which I instantly loved but eventually hated. Cocaine is terrific if you want to hang out with people you don't know very well and play ping-pong all night. It's bad for almost everything else … The day after cocaine is rough."

Jenny Slate on Avoiding Rom-Com Clichés, Doing Stand-Up As Someone Else, and Having Twitter Diarrhea

15 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It is hard out there for a rom-com, but this summer saw one wonderfully nontraditional addition to the genre: Obvious Child, known as “the abortion rom-com,” which is now out on DVD and VOD. Obvious Child stars the hilarious Jenny Slate as a Donna Stein, an aspiring stand-up who finds herself in a difficult situation after getting dumped and losing her job. Slate, however, is far from out of a job: Between stints on FX’s Married, Comedy Central’s Kroll Show and NBC’s Parks and Recreation, and a new Marcel the Shell book out this month, Slate is pretty much everywhere. Jenny Slate spoke to Vulture about the best and worst rom-com clichés, being a hopeless romantic, and whether she thinks she'll ever find her way back to Saturday Night Live.So, Obvious Child is obviously a pretty modern romantic comedy. Were there clichés of the genre that »

More Calzones in Parks and Recreation’s Future

15 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Parks and Recreation doesn't return until 2015, which feels like a thousand forevers from now. It's not even Halloween! Is time even happening? When we last saw our noble Pawnee crew, the show had jumped three years into the future: Leslie seemed to be a climbing the ranks of the National Parks Service, Ben was in a tuxedo as her doting sidekick, and their triplets were energetic toddlers. Now new on-set photos have emerged, and the costuming suggests a new future for Ben outside of government, a future pursuing his true passion of calzones. In this shot, he's wearing a "In the 'Zone'" apron and holding what appears to be a massive calzone. It's a step up from the lo-cal calzone zone, but just barely. »
