I've been rewatching The League recently while waiting for my newfound love You're the Worst to return. What would you recommend that I watch for comedy/rom-dramedy to hold me over until next season? I've watched Californication, but it didn't really charm me as much as those other two. Himym and Happy Endings just aren't cutting it for me in the meantime. —SadieIf you like the bouncy nihilism of The League and Ytw, you'll probably like Archer, which shares a similar set of dark values and quick humor. I'd say start at the beginning, just for completeness' sake, but you »

Adam Pally is set to exit The Mindy Project (don't even get us started on how much we'll miss him on the Fox comedy!), and he's already got his next TV gig lined up! The Happy Endings alum is going to try his hand at hosting late night. E! News can exclusively reveal that Pally will host The Late Late Show on Friday, January 30. Joining Pally for his episode will be guests Ben Schwartz (House of Lies, Parks and Recreation), Eric Andre (Fxx's Man Seeking Woman), and alt-rock band Death Cab for Cutie. And Pally shouldn't be nervous about his new hosting gig at all, since he's already had experience on The Late Late Show! Back in 2011, Pally was a guest on the CBS late night »
Technically speaking, The Nightly Show host Larry Wilmore is the new guy on the late-night television circuit, but the former Daily Show correspondent and in Living Color writer has been making us laugh — at all hours of the day — for quite some time.
The writer/actor/stand-up comedian, who got his start on The Facts of Life, has been seen on the small screen (Happy Endings, How I Met Your Mother, and The Office, which he also worked as a consulting producer on) and big screen (I Love You, Man, Dinner for Schmucks, Vamps) alike for a career that’s already spanned more than 30 years.
While Wilmore has long been a memorable “Oh, that guy!” kind of character actor, he has been making just as many waves off-screen. The Los Angeles native co-created the hit comedies The PJs, with Eddie Murphy, and The Bernie Mac Show, with the late, »
As the news broke that the Supreme Court would decide whether all 50 states must allow gay marriage, Ellen DeGeneres and Liz Feldman were setting the record straight about the new NBC comedy they’re producing/writing and which stars Elisha Cuthbert as a lesbian.
Based on Feldman’s own life — Cuthbert plays Liz, a woman planning to have a baby with her male Bff (2 Broke Girls’ Nick Zano) when he meets the love of his life (Kelly Brook) — One Big Happy “in a way is almost trying to pick up where [Ellen] left off,” Feldman said, alluding to DeGeneres’ eponymous 1990s sitcom, »
It’s always sad when a beloved show with a small but passionate fanbase gets cancelled, and it has now happened again with USA Network’s Benched. The freshman comedy series has been axed by the network after a creatively strong but little-watched first season. With an average audience of 800,000 viewers, things didn’t look too good for Benched, especially after USA renewed both Sirens and Playing House. According to the network, the series’ ratings didn’t grow enough with DVR and on-demand viewing to warrant a second season. The show’s cancellation is already the second one handed out by USA in 2015; the network cancelled spy series Covert Affairs, which ran for five seasons, last week. Benched starred Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings) as Nina Whitley, an attorney who loses her boyfriend and her job all in one day before finding a new, far less luxurious position at the only »

Whovians are emotional creatures. The trickiest adventures excite them and the slightest of change leaves them in tears. However, if they were to honestly pin-point the saddest day of their entire lives, they would say “Doomsday”.
Doomsday was the last one would ever see of Rose Tyler, give or take all the times she has set off on her own adventures to reunite with the Doctor, that is. For people starting out with NuWho, Rose was the prime insight to all of time and space, aka the very first companion they would be traveling with.
Unfortunately, with Rose being stuck in a parallel universe, and her unrequited love for the Doctor being, well, unrequited, thousands upon thousands of Whovians lived in disbelief over the words, “Rose Tyler…” and the brutal cliffhanger set forth after the unlikely pairing of Rose and the “duplicate Doctor”, even though they obviously know that »

While Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon -- an idea that came from the actor himself when, in 1994, he told Premiere magazine that he’s worked with everybody -- has become the ultimate trivia game, it may be time to re-think who’s actually at the nexus.
Thanks in large part to Friends -- the former NBC sitcom now streaming on Netflix -- Aniston worked with a number of stars well before they were famous. And in the years since the series ended, Aniston has shared the screen with a few but key number of A-listers. But it wasn’t until she earned a 2015 Golden Globe nomination for her role in Cake that we realized she’s practically worked with everyone in Hollywood.
