In this action comedy, two former college friends, who now find themselves in very different walks of life, meet up at a fancy cocktail party: Veronica (Sandra Oh) has become the entitled, wine-loving wife of a rich businessman, while Ashley (Anne Heche), along with her lover Lisa (Alicia Silverstone), struggles to make ends meet as an artist. As the two women reconnect, long-buried hostilities, jealousy, and anger explode into a vicious, bloody fight that leaves both of them battered and bruised – and ready for more.
On top of Oh and Heche, Alicia Silverstone, Dylan Baker, Tituss Burgess, Justin Ahdoot and Jordan Carlos also star. Onur Tukel (Summer of Blood) wrote and directed the film, which
Last year, the action comedy emerged out of the Toronto International Film Festival with relatively positive reception from critics; most reviews for the film praised the two lead performances and action scenes but weren’t entirely fond of the film’s more satirical elements.

During his last broadcast on Comedy Central Thursday night, the “Nightly Show” host was unbowed, telling viewers he was proud of the work he and his staff of contributors produced in an attempt to feature voices that don’t normally get an airing during late-night television. “As a culture, we’ve all agreed with the opinion that the world should be seen in a certain way. So at ‘The Nightly Show,’ our chief mission was to disagree with that premise, and to see the world in a way that may not make everybody comfortable,” he said. “And to present it with a cast of people who don’t always get to have a voice on that. On that front, I feel we’ve been very successful, and I couldn’t be prouder of what we accomplished.”

The CBS program also bathed its set in purple light in Prince’s honor.
Larry Wilmore’s “The Nightly Show” featured producer Russell Simmons on its roundtable panel with regulars Robin Thede and Jordan Carlos. Simmons remembered Prince as “one of the sweetest people I ever met.” Thede recalled attending one of Prince’s infamous musical jam parties in Bel-Air.

James Corden, host of CBS’ “The Late Late Show,” taped a special introduction for Thursday’s episode that was already in the can before news of his death surfaced Thursday morning.
When it comes to romantic comedies these days you tend to either get the big Hollywood films with big names and often a lack of real connection, or you get the indie ones with lots of talking. Sleeping with Other People finds its place between these styles, with surprising success.
Jake (Jason Sudeikis) is a good-natured man who is a womaniser, and Lainey (Alison Brie) is obsessed with her first love (or at least the one she planned to lose her virginity to). When the two form a platonic relationship to help them deal with their disastrous love lives the signs are all there that an attraction between the two are forming.

So what’s coming up on next week’s new installment? Gay stuff — and you know how EW likes that.
Based on the book by David J. Rosen, I Just Want My Pants Back revolves around a group of twenty-something hipsters who try to figure out dating and the rest of life in Brooklyn. The cast includes Peter Vack, Elisabeth Hower, Jordan Carlos, Kim Shaw, and Sunkrish Bala. The show was initially developed for NBC.
Pants was previewed back in August 2011 and drew a very healthy 2.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.13 million total viewers. In retrospect, MTV execs may be wishing that they'd started airing the rest of the season right away.

(When do they ever, really?) Elsewhere, Paul is making himself a little too comfortable in Tina's (Kim Shaw) apartment... and in her life. Feeling suffocated, she makes some less-than-ideal choices.
Last week, we saw Eric (Jordan Carlos) grappling with the decision to stay in med school or not. In the finale, Stacey (Elisabeth Hower) -- convinced he's bound for "hobodom" -- stages a

Kim Shaw and Jordan Carlos in "I Just Want My Pants Back"
MTV's new show "I Just Want My Pants Back" immediately sets up a premise: Don't lose your pants to a hot girl after a steamy one-night stand.
Of course, those pants go on to act as a metaphor about a group of twentysomethings who live, love and party in Brooklyn. For the rest of the series, it seems, Jason (Peter Vack's character) is just trying to find that perfect girl, the perfect job and his lost set of trousers.
In fact, all the characters seem to be trying to nail down that special something, whatever it is. And, if you think that what you've seen so far is saucy, from what the "Pants Back" cast tells us,
