    Will Ferrell And Jason Sudeikis Give Us the Secret George W. and Biden

    It would take a lot more than a Will Ferrell impression to make me want George W. Bush to return for real, but Ferrell’s always hilarious fake-Bush was the highlight of last night’s SNL. In the cold open, President Obama (Fred Armisen, as usual) entered the bedroom of the Vice Presi...

    Will Ferrell Visits Jimmy Fallon: Wears Tight Pants, Shows New Movie Trailer

    Will Ferrell’s comedy is both incomparably goofy and totally droll about it, and both sides of his humor kicked in during his guest spot on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He was promoting his hosting spot on this week’s SNL, but also brought along the trailer for his new political co...

    So many documentaries come out every year that it isn’t possible to keep up with them all. I watched 'Booker’s Place' (now open theatrically in New York and Los Angeles, and available nationwide On Demand) because I admire its director, Raymond De Felitta, who most recently gave us the piquantly ori...

    Edgy Obama Opens For Kimmel at White House Correspondents Dinner (Video)

    GREY MATTERS: PERSON OF INTEREST A Noir for the New Depression

    Person of Interest isn’t the sole new scripted television show in the Top Five because it’s a gold standard procedural mystery. Or because it’s a terrific grown-up look at living with regret that also finds time to explore post 9-11 hot topics of class and morality in the...

    Jon Hamm, Paul McCartney Guest On Hilarious, Live 30 Rock (UPDATED WITH VIDEO)

    When recorded series go live, it’s usually hard to overcome the stuntiness of it all. (Alec Baldwin promised in a promo that the live 30 Rock would be “liver” than ever, so we all get to make up new words). But 30 Rock found a brilliant, hilarious meta-solution by making its l...

    VIDEO: AMC's THE WALKING DEAD re-imagined as 1970s sitcom kitsch

    Jimmy Fallon And Friends Go to Downton Abbey (Video)

    Just when you’ve gotten through Downton Abbey withdrawal, here’s another parody to remind you of what’s missing from television: Jimmy Fallon and friends from Studio 6B give us Downton Sixbey. In the spirit of Jersey Floor, it sounds like a recurring Late Night series, which w...
