    Maya Rudolph will return to primetime in post-Olympics variety show

    Bridesmaids star Maya Rudolph will return to NBC this winter with an all-new variety show. The pilot for the project would air as a special after the Winter Olympics. If it premieres to much acclaim and fanfare, assumedly NBC would order a full-season run of episodes. Lorne Michaels, producing another of his Saturday Night LIve alum’s projects, has been working with Rudolph on this for several months when Up All

    Christina Applegate is out, Maya Rudolph is pregnant and other reasons Up All Night is doomed

    The drama currently surrounding NBC’s series Up All Night is beginning to rival that of Community from 10 months ago. When the latter show’s creator and executive producer Dan Harmon was ousted in May of last year, it blew the mind’s of the show’s cult followers. The major difference between Community and Up All Night’s situation, however, is that I don’t expect Up All Night’s less nerdy, less-culty following to

    NBC renews ‘Parks and Recreation’ and ‘Up All Night’

    By last night, we knew both 30 Rock and Community had been renewed for new, albeit shortened, seasons. We still didn’t know about Parks and Recreation and The Office– or Up All Night and Whitney, for that matter. Well, now we know Parks and Recreation and Up All Night will officially return. Parks and Rec — starring Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Rashida Jones, Adam Scott, Retta, Aziz Ansari, Aubrey Plaza,

    Wendi McLendon-Covey: I won’t do a Bridesmaids sequel without Kristen Wiig (Exclusive)

    Talk of a Bridesmaids sequel started as soon as the opening weekend box office numbers were released in May of last year, but it took until this past January for the buzz to boil over, which is when the film’s breakout star, Saturday Night Live’s Kristen Wiig said plainly that it’s not on her list of things to do. “We aren’t working on that,” Wiig, who co-wrote the film with

    Watch Kristen Wiig, Adam Scott, Megan Fox in the red band trailer for Friends With Kids

    “They are so fucked,” Kristen Wiig’s character in Friends With Kids says about Adam Scott and Jennifer Westfeldt’s character’s plans of making a baby without getting hitched.

This is her first time directing a film, but she’s no stranger to the process, having written, produced and starred in 2001’s cult hit Kissing Jessica Stein.

    11 videos featuring Maya Rudolph and Debra Wilson as Whitney Houston

    Iconic pop singer Whitney Houston died at the age of 48 this afternoon. No cause of death has been revealed. And while it may seem her work in the music world had nothing to do with world of comedy, two great comedic actresses — Maya Rudolph of Saturday Night Live fame and Debra Wilson, known for her work on Fox’s long-running MadTV — famously imitated Houston throughout the years, most

    Nick Cannon, Jim Belushi headed for new network sitcoms

    Two big stories have just popped up in the TV sitcom world today, and I am cautiously optimistic regarding one. One of the shows I have been looking forward to this Fall is Up All Night; starring Will Arnett, Christina Applegate and Maya Rudolph. The show centers around a couple with a new baby who struggle to keep their sanity. But because those three aren’t fabulous enough someone has included

    Maya Rudolph gives birth and gives the kid a normal name

    A heartfelt congratulations goes out to super cool comedy chick Maya Rudolph, who totally cranked out her third child on July 3. I know what you’re thinking. If it happened 15 days ago, why are we reporting it now. Well, because we didn’t have a direct line into Maya’s womb– and because maybe her and her dude, director Paul Thomas Anderson (that’s right– they’re not married!), wanted some darn privacy.

    Saturday Night Live recap: The return of Tina Fey

    COLD OPENING Osama Bin Laden’s video Will and Testament. Osama reveals his legacy is not as impressive as we were led to believe- totaling just over $700. Osama mentions Dakota Fanning several times- more specifically, a virgin, 12-year-old Dakota Fanning. The reference is kind of out there, although, to some, Dakota Fanning at 12 was as creepy as Osama while alive. (more…)

    Dream team of SNL presidents turns up on Funny or Die

    It’s the interior of the White House, the president’s bedroom. It’s night. Gerald Ford stumbles in. He’s befuddled. He prat falls onto a table. “Live from New York…” But this is no Saturday Night Live sketch. History has come alive on Funny or Die in an exclusive, star-studded video. Rather than mince words, let me cut to the chase. • Chevy Chase as Gerald Ford • Dan Aykroyd as Jimmy
