The Funny Gals team — June Diane Raphael, Andrea Savage, Kristen Schaal, Nicole Byer, and Carla Gallo — and the Funny Guys team — Paul Scheer, John Gemberling, Adam Pally, Eugene Cordero, Horatio Sanz — compete in what has been reportedly been the most competitive match in the history of the show. We say reportedly because that’s what Scheer himself said, and he’s clearly biased. (Editor’s Note: IndieWire is also biased towards Scheer because he conducted one of the best interviews and photo shoots with “Bachelorette” Rachel Lindsay ever.)

Even if you’ve never seen a complete episode of either “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette,” ABC’s legendary reality franchises, you probably know them well thanks to the depth of its penetration within pop culture.

Shows like “The Middle” and “Happy Endings” have referenced it directly, while other series like “Inside Amy Schumer,” “Saturday Night Live” and more have created their own fake versions. And
In the aftermath of the bombing at the Jeffersonian, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) thankfully survives -- as do Booth (David Boreanaz), Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) and Angela (Michaela Conlin) -- but she knows immediately that something’s wrong. Unable to remember what she was doing prior to the explosion or recall what the team was working on, Brennan tearfully insists to Booth that “something is wrong with me.”
And she’s right. Once the foursome escapes the rubble of the Medico-Legal Lab, Cam (Tamara Taylor) informs the forensic anthropologist that she has a contusion on her corpus callosum, the nerves that join the two hemispheres of the brain. Essentially, the brilliant scientist has lost her ability to process complex information, a devastating
Because Bones -- which was based on the life and works of real-life forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs -- did more than just stay on the air, leapfrogging more than 20 different time slots in its 12-year run. In a television landscape populated with morose antiheroes and sarcastic protagonists that often poke fun at the earnestness of cops-and-science procedurals like Bones, sometimes directly by name (see: American Dad, Bojack Horseman, Bob’s Burgers and more), the show was a champion of justice and evidence, science and guts, “brains and heart.” It told new stories every week, while at the same time unfolding its central characters little by little, making

Making its world premiere at the fest is “I Love Dick,” Soloway’s Amazon comedy featuring Kevin Bacon as the titular Dick, a “charismatic artist” who upends the marriage of Kathryn Hanh and Griffith Dunne. In addition, the Netflix documentary “Hot Girls Wanted” gets a sequel directed by Rashida Jones; “Turned On” explores “the intersection of sex and technology,” per the official release.
Broadcast networks find themselves surprisingly well-represented in the line-up, with the ABC comedy “Downward Dog” (featuring Allison Tolman as a young woman with a special relationship with her dog) as well as the Fox limited series “Shots Fired,
Fresh off their popular lampoons of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live,” Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon will be on hand to light the 94-foot tall tree in Rockefeller Plaza for NBC‘s annual “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” special. This year’s show is set to air live Wednesday, Nov. 30, and will be hosted by “Today” anchors Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker, and Hoda Kotb. “The Tonight Show” house band The Roots will attend and perform two songs, one of which will feature Anthony Hamilton & the HamilTones.
“Big Little Lies,” HBO‘s upcoming limited series based on Liane Moriarty’s bestselling book, will premiere on Sunday, Feb. 19. The series is described as a subversive, darkly comedic drama which tells the story of three mothers of first-graders

When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.
Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising is a blindsiding comedy sequel, not just because it is surprisingly a much more enjoyable film than its predecessor from 2014, but for the fact that its crowded team of five different writers actually managed to tell a follow-up story layered with social commentary on hot topics such as feminism, equality and double standards. Of course, all of this is done featuring loads of juvenile shenanigans that are both to be expected. and downright fun to watch.
For those of you returning for the second time, can you talk about what it was like to work as a team as opposed to adversaries… and Rose, what was it rubbing Zac? You’ve gotta tell us…
Rose Byrne: It was a new experience. I never felt anything quite as hard. [Laughs]
Box Office Mojo reports that The Angry Birds Movie opened in 3,932, which is still significantly lower than Captain America's 4,226-theater rollout, but it's the biggest debut Cap and The Avengers have faced thus far. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising debuted in 3,384 theaters, while The Nice Guys arrived in 2,865 theaters. The
With comedically supercharged co-stars like Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Dave Franco, Ike Barinholtz, Carla Gallo, and Lisa Kudrow, the actress is in hilarious company in "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising," but let's not forget that Byrne herself has an enviable Hollywood comedy career, with huge hits like "Bridesmaids," "Neighbors," and "Spy" under her belt. And she's showing no signs of slowing down.
We recently sat down with Byrne to talk about why it made sense for her to do a sequel to 2014's comedy hit "Neighbors," why she and Seth make such a great team, how her pregnancy affected filming, and what oiling up a shirtless Zac Efron is really like (hint: it's not as sexy as it sounds).
Moviefone: At one point did you decide you'd be game for a follow-up -- immediately after the first one?
You saw Neighbors, so Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising shouldn’t come as a structural surprise. Once again, Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) square off against rowdy college kids living next door.

But just as they thought they’d reclaimed the neighborhood and were safe to sell, they learn that the new occupants next door are a sorority even more out of control than Teddy (Efron) and his brothers ever dreamed of being.
Tired of their school’s sexist, restrictive system, the unorthodox ladies of Kappa Nu have decided to start a house where they can do whatever the hell they want. When Shelby (Moretz) and her sisters,

After a sorority moves in next door, which is even more debaucherous than the fraternity before it, Mac and Kelly have to ask for help from their former enemy, Teddy.
Following on from 2014’s Bad Neighbours, its sequel is a pro-feminism, gross out, debauched and at times hilarious comedy.
