‘Family Guy’ Pays Tribute To Carrie Fisher With Heartfelt Eulogy
On Sunday night, Family Guy made a thoughtful and emotional tribute to the late Carrie Fisher — but still managed to balance it with its on-brand humor.
In the episode, Peter makes a eulogy at Angela’s (voiced by Fisher) funeral that started off with an out-of-context definition of the word “class” and an offering of classic TV show theme songs including The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Friends, Cheers and, oddly enough, the wordless theme to Sanford and Son.
Peter switched… Read
‘Stranger Things’ Teases Titles For Season 3
Get for another trip into the upside down. Netflix released a teaser trailer for the third season Stranger Things (aka Stranger Things 3) that gives a sneak peek the titles of the 8 episodes which will debut 2019.
The titles tell us absolutely nothing, but something tells me that diehard fans of the ’80s-tinged show will dig deep and find meaning with each title revealed in the trailer. Backed by the trademark synth intro music, the titles teased were: “Suzie, Do You… Read

‘Saturday Night Live’ Ratings Rise With Host Jason Momoa
NBC's Saturday Night Live, with host Jason Momoa, musical guest Mumford & Sons and Robert de Niro returning as Robert Mueller, averaged a 4.3 Live+same day household rating in the metered markets and a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating in the markets with local people meters.
That was up from last week’s show, which was hosted by Claire Foy with musical guest Anderson .Paak (4.1, 1.5) to tie the episodes hosted by Jonah Hill and Steve Carell (both at 4.4, 1.7) for SNL's second… Read
‘SNL’: Weekend Update Reveals Its Choice To Replace Kevin Hart On The Oscars
Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update segment had a good time with one of the top entertainment stories of the week: Kevin Hart’s decision to step down from his nomination to host the Academy Awards after a furor surrounding past homophobic comments.
News anchor Michael Che noted that the Academy was demonstrating some hypocrisy in its choices. After all, it was just last year that it nominated Mel Gibson for an award, despite his notorious past of anti-Semitic remarks.
President Donald Trump Tweetstorm – The Sunday Edition
It’s well known that when President Donald Trump calls you “a great guy,” there’s trouble ahead. Well, he didn’t call former FBI head James Comey that in today’s tweetstorm – but he did give him a lashing and a new nickname.
“Leakin’ James Comey” was clearly in the Trump cross hairs in the Sunday tweetstorm, as the Commander-in-Tweet pulled no punches. Much as he took former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to the woodshed earlier this week, so today did Comey get the… Read
‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Trailer: Andy Samberg Gets Into Action Hero Mode For New Season At NBC
Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is finally living out his dreams of becoming an action hero. In one of the new trailers for the sixth season of the Fox-turned-NBC comedy, Peralta goes full John McClane to save the day…sort of.
The new trailer is one of three that will debut today — with one of them airing during NBC's Sunday night NFL game between the L.A. Rams and Chicago Bears. The trailer is a blatant celebration of Peralta and action movie… Read
Watch ‘Aquaman’ Jason Momoa On ‘SNL’: Revives ‘Game Of Thrones’ Khal Drogo’s Ghost & Other Holiday Silliness
A game Jason Momoa hosted Saturday Night Live to promote his turn as Aquaman in a silly hit or miss pre-holiday broadcast. The show began with Eric Trump being visited by Robert Mueller, in the form of Robert De Niro. The insistence on having hosts or stars play these pivotal characters shows the downside here, as De Niro so clearly stares offstage to read lines from the cue cards. It ruined the opening, in my opinion. Momoa then: played an elf on a shelf, reporting back… Read
Danny Masterson Urges Fans To Keep Watching ‘The Ranch’ After His Ouster
On Friday, Netflix released Part 6 (Season 3B) of its multi-camera comedy series The Ranch, the first batch of new episodes without original co-lead Danny Masterson who was fired at the end of filming of Part 5 over fallout from multiple previous accusations of sexual assault against him.
Early Saturday, Masterson weighed in on the new episodes, which addressed the fate of his character Rooster who was written off following Masterson’s abrupt firing.
The actor gave the… Read
