Pete Davidson Shows Christmas Spirit In Brief ‘SNL’ Appearance After Disturbing Post
Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson raised a lot of concern on Saturday with an unsettling Instagram post that reportedly triggered a welfare check by NYPD. Hours later, he made a brief appearance on SNL, showing everyone that he was alive and well, and even donned a Christmas-colored outfit to fit in with the show’s Christmas theme and the song that followed him.

Davidson introduced musical guest Miley Cyrus’ performance of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s classic (Happy Xmas) War Is Over, which featured Lennon and Ono’s son, Sean Ono Lennon, as well as Mark Ronson.

This was Davidson’s only live SNL appearance tonight (he was also featured in a pre-recorded skit about new Oscar host auditions). He was not visible during the curtain call at the end of the show when the entire cast gathers on stage.

Disney Channel Fires ‘Andi Mack’ Actor Arrested for Plotting Sex With Minor
Disney Channel has severed ties with “Andi Mack” actor Stoney Westmoreland following his arrest for allegedly trying to arrange a sexual encounter with a 13-year-old.

“Stoney Westmoreland, an actor working on the series ‘Andi Mack,’ was arrested in Salt Lake City today,” a Disney Channel spokesperson said in a statement Friday. “Given the nature of the charges and our responsibility for the welfare of employed minors, we have released him from his recurring role and he will not be returning to work on the series which wraps production on its third season next week.”

Westmoreland plays the grandfather on the live-action series. On Friday, according to reports, he was arrested in Utah — where the series films — after attempting to arrange a sexual encounter with a 13-year-old that he met through an online dating app. According to reports citing court documents, Westmoreland asked the minor to engage in oral sex and other sexual acts,

Les Moonves Personally Oversaw Eliza Dushku’s $9.5M Settlement For ‘Bull’ Harassment Claims

Les Moonves Personally Oversaw Eliza Dushku’s $9.5M Settlement For ‘Bull’ Harassment Claims
Exclusive: As accusations of sexual harassment and sexual assault by Harvey Weinstein and others began flooding Hollywood early this year, CBS’ then-ceo Les Moonves stepped in to settle claims against one of the network’s biggest stars.

Moonves was deeply and directly involved in the $9.5 million payout that CBS forked over to Eliza Dushku in January after the actor accused Bull lead Michael Weatherly of sexual harassment on the first season of the CBS drama, we’ve learned. Additionally, the confidential payment was sneaked into Bull’s production budget in an effort apparently motivated to avoid the sum popping up on the company’s books, sources say.

The confidential agreement was struck while CBS was engaging in ultimately unsuccessful talks of a potential merger with Viacom. The settlement and its machinations were not known to then-coo Joe Ianniello, who became acting CEO after Moonves resigned in September after a dozen

Days of Our Lives Characters We Hated Before We Loved Them

Days of Our Lives fans know a thing or two about love and hate, and that is precisely what makes this show so great. We all know that there are people we can get on board with, people we cannot, and people who make it their mission in life to see if they can make us all miserable. But, we also know that there are couples who make better partners than others. There are people who make better friends than others. There are people who cannot get their lives together no matter how hard they try. There are some things

Quotes of the Week: Single Parents, Riverdale, Titans, Arrowverse and More

Quotes of the Week: Single Parents, Riverdale, Titans, Arrowverse and More
TVLine readers, we may have told you a bit of a white lie.

Though we fully intended for last Sunday’s Quotes of the Week roundup to be our last one of the year, the past seven days of television simply delivered too many quality sound bites to pass up.

Without further ado, we present the real final photo gallery (seriously, we mean it this time), before our Quotes of the Year compilation makes its debut next week.

This time around, we’ve got a disappointing Christmas gift for one of the Clearys on The Kids Are Alright, some intentional political correctness on Superstore,

‘SNL’ Holds Oscar Host Auditions to Replace Kevin Hart

‘SNL’ Holds Oscar Host Auditions to Replace Kevin Hart
Now that Kevin Hart has been relieved of his hosting duties, the Oscars need to find a replacement. IndieWire has a number of worthy candidates to consider — including Dwayne Johnson, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Awkwafina — and so, it turns out, does “Saturday Night Live.” Last night’s episode featured a pre-recorded audition segment featuring the cast members doing their best celebrity impressions, including Matt Damon’s take on Matthew McConaughey.

“The search for a new host begins,” says the video’s narrator. “Who will risk everything for the chance to gain nothing?” Cut to Ego Nwodim as Tiffany Haddish (“She ready!”), Kate McKinnon as Michelle Wolf, and Pete Davidson as Rami Malek

That marked Davidson’s only appearance on the show other than announcing musical guests Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson’s second performance. Earlier in the day, he posted disturbing a message on Instagram saying, “I really don’t want

Davidson, who has previously been candid about his struggle with mental illness, wrote on Instagram, “I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore,” immediately drawing concern from celebrities and fans.

“I’m doing my best to stay here for you, but I actually don’t know how much longer I can last,” the post read. “All I’ve ever tried to do was help people.

Freeform Mocks Shadowhunters Fan Campaign With Toy Story 'Pop-Up'

Freeform Mocks Shadowhunters Fan Campaign With Toy Story 'Pop-Up'
A joke made during Freeform’s enhanced Saturday airing of Toy Story was no laughing matter for Shadowhunters fans.

As part of the cabler’s “25 Days of Christmas” programming event, Toy Story was presented on Saturday afternoon with “POPnKnowledge” inserts that would deliver trivia or poke fun at events/logic unfolding on-screen (e.g. “If Buzz doesn’t think he’s a toy, why does he freeze around humans?”).

But when Woody at one point consults a Magic 8-Ball, the pop-up pretended he had asked, “Will Freeform save Shadowhunters if I keep tweeting about it?” — with the reply being “Don’T Count On It.

General Hospital Characters We Hated Before We Loved Them

General Hospital fans have not always loved the people we say we love. In fact, there have been times when some of our favorite people on the show were some of our very least favorite people on the show, and that is something we cannot even go into without explaining it a bit better. You see, there are times when someone is so good at what they do that we cannot even believe that we missed out on them for so long. And then there are people who are so good at what they do that when they leave and

The Five Best Michelle Pfeiffer Movies of Her Career

It’s hard to believe that there was a time when Michelle Pfeiffer was a lesser-known actress since for much of her career she’s been a star unlike any other. In many ways she’s been one of those actresses that many take inspiration from and can’t help but admire since she’s been in some of the best films and helped to create some of the greatest characters in cinematic history. But aside from that she’s been a bit understated it feels like now and again, as though her roles are important from a slightly more cultured standpoint than you might see

Matt Damon Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches

Matt Damon Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches
Most Saturday Night Live hosts sit out the cold open and Weekend Update. Matt Damon was not of them.

The actor seemed positively giddy to be back hosting SNL for the first time in 16 years. After he reprised his role as Brett Kavanaugh in a star-studded parody of It’s a Wonderful Life, Damon took center stage for an endearing monologue about how he grew up watching the late-night sketch comedy series with his father.

What followed was a solid Christmas episode that tasked Damon with playing both a daddy and a daddy, and (sort of) gave him the chance

The Bold and the Beautiful fans are not always big fans of the people who come onto this show. We can remember there were times when we saw someone show up and make an appearance that we did not like. We could remember the times that we didn’t think things would work out at all between others, and there were times that we thought we might just have a moment when we hated someone so much we’d just stop watching the show. There are men and women on here who make poor choices, who do things we do not love,

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Matt Damon Closes Out The Year With a Strong Episode

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Matt Damon Closes Out The Year With a Strong Episode
While last week’s “Saturday Night Live” decided to put up all of its Christmas lights early this year, this week’s episode, hosted by Matt Damon, with musical guests Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus, is actually the Christmas/holiday episode, as well as the last “SNL” episode of 2018. This season, for the most part, has been fine, and it would be quite the Christmas miracle to get something more than fine to close out the year.

And that’s exactly what happens here.

Host: Matt Damon

It’s crazy to think this is episode marks somehow only Matt Damon’s second time hosting “SNL” (after 16 years), since he’s of course shown up before for guest cameo spots before. (As the reminder in the cold open reminds the audience he’s this show’s Brett Kavanaugh.) But Matt Damon is here to host for only the second time, and
