It's that time of year again, when a comedian we like gambles their reputation on hosting a big, lavish gala in front of millions of viewers. Will Jimmy Fallon fall flat with his Tweet-based comedy? You be the judge, as we also be the judge in this, our Emmys liveblog! Zach Oat is starting things off, with Mindy Monez taking over at the halfway point, and it all starts at 8 pm, after the jump!
Happy Star Wars Day everyone, may the fourth be with you! It's really too sad that not every holiday could be based around a terrible pun.
Saturday Night Live premiered over the weekend with an awesome host in Amy Poehler and a relevant musical guest in Katy Perry, but somehow the episode as a whole was a real miss. Every episode has a few great sketches and a whole bunch of bad ones, but this week's episode felt like the ratio tipped far further in the direction of the bad ones, especially for an event episode that should have brought everyone's a-games. Suffice it to say that it was no placeholder for Parks & Recreation. I've listed the best and worst sketches of the night after the break, so watch and play along.
Today's news reminds us that reality TV franchises never die, just fade away.
What constitutes news, you might ask? An awesome celeb hosting an awards show we've never watched? That's news. Two fallen 1980s movie stars being cast in TV shows? That's news. A TV show set in the 1970s getting dropped like a bad habit? That's news. A 1990s TV star being cast in a remake of a 1980s TV show, due to appear on TV in 2010? That's a math problem, but it's also news. All those decades and more on today's... TwoP News! (Cue American Idol theme music.)
Happy post-Valentine's/post-President's day start of the work week, everybody! Unless you're not in the States, or had some kind of evil boss who didn't let you take yesterday off, or if you're one of those rebels who defiantly refuses to celebrate holidays created by greeting card companies -- in which case little or none of the past two "holidays" means anything to you. I'm still drunk, is what I'm saying. The good news is, there is actually some news to report today! Read on for Dollhouse ratings, smashed-up cars, Michael Vartan's latest terrible career decision and more!
It's Friday! Before seeing Alice in Wonderland on opening night, check out today's TV news. At the very least, it'll give you something to think about while you wait in an hour-long line until the next showing. Going to the movies in New York is impossible.
In what's shaping up to be the biggest talk-show shake-up since David Letterman left NBC, Saturday Night Live alum Jimmy Fallon is taking over Late Night from Conan O'Brien, as Conan goes to The Tonight Show and Leno goes to prime time. The movie star's first night is Monday, March 2, with guests Robert De Niro and Van Morrison, and he's filled out the week with old friends like Drew Barrymore and Tina Fey. TWoP sat in on a conference call with Fallon as he opened up about the show's interactivity, his acclaimed house band The Roots and why Shirtless Joe Jackson and Awkward Silence Bear are going to be the next big characters of Late Night.
May sweeps starts tonight! Before your favorite characters kiss/get pregnant/kill Jack Bauer (maybe?!), here's your handy TV news.
While NBC's decision to move Jay Leno back to 11:35 PM and to try to make Conan accept a Leno-Fallon sandwich timeslot is aggravating for Conan fans and embarrassing for everyone involved (and may leave sad little Carson Daly unemployed), we're pretty psyched for it. If Conan ends up leaving NBC (and he really should) for Fox, as is being reported he likely will, that's great for Conan fans. And even if he stays, getting Leno out of primetime and freeing up all those timeslots is nothing but good news for a floundering NBC. Here's why.
