The SNL alum chats about her new album I'm Hip and her upcoming TV guest appearances.
"It's a fun album," she says. "It's not a comedy album overtly. But it's a fun, very vocal, musical album."
Ana recorded the album with a full band, complete with a horn section for a big brassy sound. "I can kind of let it rip," she adds.
Video- Ana Gasteyer's Music Will Blow Your Mind

In the first cull of the season, ABC has terminated the fledgling comedy series Manhattan Love Story, after it failed to recover from a shaky start by its third episode. There is much debate about the validity of ratings numbers – at a time when networks are trying to gauge viewership around DVR recordings, while simultaneously scrambling to adapt to changing viewing habits in light of media streaming and ‘binge-watching’ – but it seems the situation for the show was just too dire to continue.
The short-lived series followed Dana (Analeigh Tipton) and Peter (Jake McDorman) as they embarked on a new relationship together – and explored their “unfiltered internal monologues” in the process. Written by Jeff Lowell (Two And A Half Men), the show got off to a relatively weak start – with ratings indicating that viewers were switching off after Manhattan Love Story’s lead-in show, Selfie. Numbers decreased with each subsequent episode which, »

The sheer volume of British television shows that receive the U.S. reboot treatment continues to baffle me, mainly because the majority are often massive flops. Much like the recent Guardians Of The Galaxy Chinese subtitle issue, wherein the nuanced comedy was lost in translation, a similar fate often befalls British shows headed across the pond. Still, we can hold out hope that ABC Studios and Amblin TV won’t make a complete balls-up of No Angels.
The dramedy is being spearheaded by producer Julie Anne Robinson (Suburgatory), who is no stranger to the naughty antics of those Northern nurses. Robinson directed two episodes of the original series, which followed four nurses who work and live together. It began airing in 2004 and ran for two seasons, which wasn’t nearly enough in my opinion.
No Angels managed to perfectly blend the silly, funny and true-to-life aspects of the nurses’ daily lives, »

Eliza Dooley is the colleague from hell. She’s the smug, gaudy co-worker who lives in a symbiotic relationship with her phone and spends more time commenting on Instagram or Tweeting her feelings than interacting with the world. When Eliza struts into her workplace, a pharmaceuticals company, she dribbles out a line of text-speak to the baffled receptionist. Into Eliza’s work enters Henry Higgs, a sniffy, uptight technophobe who managed to amend and enhance the reputation of the company much to the delight of its boss. After a particularly embarrassing moment in which two bulging bags of vomit explode onto Eliza’s trendy skirt in front of all her colleagues, she resolves to improve her own image, enlisting a surprisingly willing Henry to help her (“I can transform this vapid, »
Tuesday, ABC premieres two sitcoms that are extremely annoying. But there is one difference among them: I want one of them to survive. That one is Selfie (8 p.m.) which, despite its cloying introduction to the world, could just be a problematic pilot and will emerge, in another episode or three, as something that realizes its potential. Reason for faith is that Selfie is from Emily Kapnek (Suburgatory), who has shown that she knows how to capture characters and be funny across a number of them. Here she's got Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Who) as

You've seen the basic story of Selfie before—it's the modern-day My Fair Lady. Karen Gillan plays an updated, self-absorbed, Instagram-obsessed Eliza while John Cho serves as the titular Henry. Along with Selfie, fall's TV lineup has seen a surge in the rom-com sitcom, including NBC's A to Z and ABC's other romantic endeavor, Manhattan Love Story. It would seem love is in the air... just not about Selfie. EW's Esther Zuckerman and Kat Ward discuss whether the show can be saved from itself. Esther: I will admit that on first watch—perhaps because of my extremely low expectations—I »

Don’t let the title fool you! 'Selfie' is equal parts endearing and charming, with an extra dash of lighthearted fun.
Every TV fan knows that Fall is the most overwhelming season of the year. Why? One very simple reason: Too many shows and too little time. So we at ETonline are reviewing each and every one of the new fall TV shows to bring you our reviews on the good, the bad, the adorable and the just plain horrible.
When It Airs: Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
The Biggest Stars: From Emily Kapnek, aka the witty woman who brought you Suburgatory, Selfie stars Guardians of the Galaxy's Karen Gillan as Eliza Dooley. You'll also find John Cho, the man who introduced us to the term "Milf" in all those American Pie movies, and Allyn Rachel, the girl from literally every single commercial ever, in this laugh-out-loud »
Based on Pygmalion and My Fair Lady, Selfie follows Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan) as she comes to learn that there is more to life than social media. Helping her along on her journey of self discovery and manners is Henry Higenbottam (John Cho), who works with Eliza, and who is a master of rebranding (she, naturally, works in sales). The series is created by Suburgatory's Emily Kapnek, who gives it her trademark fast-paced style. Hit the jump to see if this ABC comedy deserves a spot on your DVR. Selfie has been heavily promoted by ABC for months, replaying the same unfunny clips over and over again. Early word for those who had seen the pilot was that there was very little to redeem it. But then there's Karen Gillan and John Cho. I truly could not imagine any two other actors who would have convinced me to sit through Selfie's pilot. »

Even in the era of Walter White, Don Draper and the gang from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," broadcast network executives are still obsessed with the idea of likable and admirable heroes, especially when it comes to comedy. You'll occasionally find your questionable morality in network dramas like "Scandal" and "The Good Wife," but sitcom protagonists tend to have their rough edges sanded off as quickly and artlessly as possible. One new network comedy debuting this week illustrates why the suits tend to freak out about likability, while another demonstrates the pitfalls of trying to tone down bad behavior. ABC's "Selfie" (Tuesday at 8 p.m.) features a heroine so obnoxious that one wishes the network had stepped in to soften her up, while NBC's "Bad Judge" (Thursday at 9 p.m.) stripped away many of its heroine's most questionable traits from the original pilot and didn't bother replacing them with anything worth watching for. »
