Hosted by comedian Neal Brennan (co-creator of Chappelle's Show), Sundance's The Approval Matrix talk show will roll out the first of its six episodes on August 11 at 11 p.m. Based on New York's famous back page matrix — which measures cultural events on a scale from highbrow to lowbrow and brilliant to despicable, and is generally the first thing each of you looks at when you read the magazine — The Approval Matrix will feature interviews (with celebrities including Amy Poehler, Chris Rock, and Jon Stewart), sketches, and segments in which panelists discuss the pop culture of the day. But which panelists are going to be on The Approval Matrix, you ask?

Phenomenally popular Wizard of Oz musical Wicked passed a milestone in London today (June 3), becoming the tenth longest-running show on the West End after playing to more than 5.5 million people over eight years.
Rumours of a movie adaptation have been around for years, so on this special occasion, we caught up with original Broadway cast member Kristin Chenoweth and asked which stars she would like to play Elphaba and Glinda on the big screen. Read on to find out who she chose, and what they might look like in the role...
Design by Sasha Fuller
"I would love to see someone like Ariana Grande come in and play Elphaba. I think Lea Michele's a good choice as well. Beth Behrs, she's on Two Broke Girls, she would be good for Glinda. I think there's a lot of people who could make it happen."

Conan O’Brien‘s Team Coco is set to launch a new comedy label this summer, beginning with the release of the debut stand-up album from comedian Ian Edwards, 100% Half Assed. The album was recorded at the La Jolla Comedy Store on March 8 and will be released in June. Team Coco says the concept for the new record label was born of a desire to help shine a spotlight on rising comedians while allowing them more creative control and a greater stake in the success of the release. Over the past 20 years, O’Brien has used his late-night franchise as a platform for launching groundbreaking stand-up comedy. Since debuting in 2010 on TBS, Conan reps say their show has featured more performances from stand-up comedians than any other late-night program on TV. In addition to inviting comics to perform on Conan, Team Coco has produced comedy specials like Team Coco Presents: »

We all want to get in Ryan Gosling's pants, but one lucky actress has Eva Mendes' main man all over hers! Ok, so technically Two Broke Girls star Beth Behrs has leggings covered in the Gos (although leggings worn properly are interchangeable with pants). Ms. Behrs was given this must-have fashion item by Molly McAleer, a writer on her hit CBS show as well as co-founder of HelloGiggles.com. Obviously, Beth was thrilled with her Noah Calhoun-covered jodhpurs. She Instagrammed a pic of her luscious leggings, admitting, "I couldn't be happier!" If you would like multiple Mr. Gosling clinging to the lower half of your body, too, you are in luck! Clashist sells "Dapper Ryan Gosling »
Eric André (Two Broke Girls, The Eric André Show), Britt Lower (Unforgettable) and Maya Erskine (Betas) are set as series regulars in FX comedy pilot Man Seeking Woman. Based on Simon Rich’s book, The Last Girlfriend On Earth, Man Seeking Woman is described as a sweet and absurd look at the life-and-death stakes of dating. It centers on Josh Greenberg (Jay Baruchel), a naive romantic on a desperate quest for love. When his longtime girlfriend dumps him, Josh enters the dating scene, a nightmarish hellscape of untold horror. André will play Mike, Josh’s cocky best friend; Lower plays Liz, Josh’s intimidating sister; and Erskine will play Maggie, the ex-girlfriend who broke Josh’s heart. Related: 2014 FX Pilots »

This just in: Lindsay Lohan was not a trainwreck while filming her recent guest appearance on Two Broke Girls. In fact, she was just the opposite. A blogger who attended the taping of the popular CBS show has accused Lohan of screwing up her scenes. But once the hit sitcom's star Kat Dennings got word of the nasty rumors surrounding LiLo's recent acting gig, she took to Twitter to stick up for the embattled actress. "This article is complete bulls--t. Lindsay was prepared, sweet to everyone, & professional," Dennings wrote with a link to the now viral story. "Not nice to spread lies." In the original story, which appeared on the blog Crazy Days and Crazy Nights, the »
Kat posted the photo on her Instagram page. In the pic, Kat - in a wedding dress and veil -- poses next to Lindsay, also in a bridal gown.
"Sh** gets real in upcoming episodes of 2 Broke Girls," Kat wrote to accompany the pic.

We applaud the well-endowed women of Hollywood, but is Kat Dennings crossing the line into chest copying territory? The Two Broke Girls star looks an awful lot like TV's most famous secretary-turned-partner, Joan Holloway. Granted, Joan would wear this grey dress in scarlet red with her hair in a tasteful updo, but the raised rack is exactly the same. But is the CBS star copying the Mad Men character or the woman who brings her to life? Here's Christina Hendricks in an almost identical cut, flaunting matching lovely lady lumps. We're going to call this a case of great bodies dressing alike. Only so many cuts look tasteful and sexy on a healthy-sized rack, and both these A-listers have found a way »
After more than two weeks of semi-shutdown of the broadcast networks for Olympics coverage, they’re all opening for business today. NBC, which carried the Sochi games, led the way with the season premiere of The Voice. It posted a 4.7 in adults 18-49, even with the fast national for the show’s spring premiere last year. NBC’s The Blacklist logged a 3.2 in adults 18-49, off a tenth from its most recent telecast with The Voice as a lead-in, the fall finale on Dec. 2. Naturally, the drama outperformed significantly its January outings without The Voice, up 24% from its most recent original a month ago on Jan. 27. NBC easily won the night in 18-49 (4.2) and total viewers (14.3 million). CBS’ comedy block returned to originals after a two-week break to lower numbers. How I Met Your Mother (3.6), which is marching towards its series finale, dipped 5% from the last fresh episode on Feb. »

Beth Behrs and Kat Dennings of "Two Broke Girls" are friendly. The co-stars and People's Choice Awards hosts showed that on "Conan" on Tuesday (Jan. 7): Behrs even touched Dennings' breast during the interview.
It was, of course, a mistake. But that didn't stop Conan O'Brien -- who was tired of being ignored by the chatty ladies -- from stopping everything to rewatch the moment. In slow motion, naturally. The whole thing is very entertaining.
Ouch! Over the weekend, Kat Dennings suffered an accident in which she sliced her hand with a knife before rushing to the emergency room for treatment. On Sunday, the 27-year-old Two Broke Girls star tweeted, "In Kat's house, the knives wash You #emergencyroom #sadfinger." She later shared a pic on Instagram of a bloodied paper towel with the caption, "Relaxing Sunday #stitches #emergencyroom." In the ER snapshot, Dennings holds the towel, which she used to wrap her cut hand in. Dennings followed up while a post-treatment pic of her right hand and right index finger safely and successfully wrapped in medical gauze. In a third Instagram pic, Dennings sits at her »
