Gal Gadot and Kumail Nanjiani - Saturday Night Live Season 43 Hosts

The end of this month will bring the 43rd season premiere of Saturday Night Live, fresh off winning several Emmys recently, including Outstanding Variety Sketch Series. They’ve got a lot to live up to after last season really brought out the best in the writers room and the cast, and it sounds like they’ll be starting things off on the right foot with a great batch of hosts to start things off.

Ryan Gosling was already announced to host the season premiere on September 30, just in time to promote the forthcoming sequel Blade Runner 2049. Now NBC has announced two more exciting hosts to follow him in the two weeks following: Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot and The Big Sick star and co-writer Kumail Nanjiani. Read More »

30 Rock Netflix

All good things must come to an end, including Netflix titles. As September ends and gives way to October, so too does the tenure of several Netflix titles to make room for new ones. I know it’s sad to admit, but there are indeed movies leaving Netflix October 2017. So here’s your last chance to catch some of these great titles, because once they’re gone, they’re gone forever. Okay, that’s a lie, they may very well return. Plus, you can always go out and buy a Blu-ray! They still exist, I swear.

Here are the best TV shows and movies leaving Netflix in October 2017.

Saturday Night Live Season 43

In just 10 days, we’ll be getting a brand new episode of Saturday Night Live to kick off the 43rd season of the landmark, late night sketch comedy series from NBC. Ryan Gosling has been tapped to host the season premiere with Jay-Z serving as musical guest, and we’ll see if the show can keep the momentum from the high ratings last season earned thanks to the lampooning of a certain spray tan president. While we’ll have no idea what sketches to expect until the night of, there is one way we know SNL will try to keep the hype around the show alive.

NBC has announced that every new episode of Saturday Night Live this season will air live from coast-to-coast, just as the final three episodes of the previous season did. That means everyone on the west coast will be watching the show live at the same time as everyone on the east coast, and so will everyone in between. But SNL fans have even more to look forward to this fall. Read More »

will and grace revival first look

Will and Grace have made a miraculous comeback, and it’s all thanks to a “Get Out the Vote” sketch. No one was expecting a late ’90s/early 2000s sitcom about two gay guys and their straight girlfriends to be so relevant in 2017, but a hop, skip, and a Fox News joke later, and we’re as timely as you can get!

The first look at the Will and Grace revival teased new footage from the series return on NBC this month, interspersed with some footage from the good old days when ’90s TV was slightly grainier, and the world was a little less terrible. At least Jack has Grindr now.

Watch the new Will and Grace trailer below.

Ryan Gosling - Saturday Night Live Season 43

Last season of Saturday Night Live enjoyed record numbers for the late night sketch comedy series, the likes of which haven’t been seen since the 1990s. That’s largely thanks to the complete shitshow in the White House making for ripe political satire, not to mention impeccable lampooning of the Orange-in-Chief himself by Alec Baldwin.

If the Saturday Night Live spin-off Weekend Update: Summer Edition this month is any indicator, the 43rd season of the staple NBC series should be back with a vengeance, and now we know who will be hosting the season premiere. Surprisingly, it’s not a former SNL cast member or one of their knockout, repeat hosts. Instead, it’s Blade Runner 2049 star Ryan Gosling and I couldn’t be happier about that. Read More »

‘Xena: Warrior Princess’ Reboot Axed By NBC

Xena reboot

Two years ago, we learned that a Xena: Warrior Princess revival was in the works, which would explore a subtextual relationship between Xena and her companion Gabrielle that was rapidly becoming text in the original series.

In fact, writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach had said last year that he planned to fully explore the relationship between the two female heroes. But a few months after Grillo-Marxuach departed the project, NBC has canned the modern-day update of the Chakram-wielding female warrior.

the munsters reboot

The Munsters are moving to Brooklyn. The macabre 1960s sitcom is getting a reboot in the hipster New York City neighborhood.

Seth Meyers and Odd Mom Out creator Jill Kargman will be reviving the monster-comedy at NBC, several years after NBC’s failed attempt to resurrect the series with American Gods showrunner Bryan Fuller at the helm.

hannibal season 4

Like the rest of us Fannibals, Bryan Fuller is eager to bring Hannibal back from its watery grave.

The former Hannibal showrunner has confirmed that “conversations” have begun around reviving Hannibal for a potential fourth season after NBC canceled the series after its third season in 2015. While that’s exciting news for any cannibal serial killer lover, Fuller did caution fans that it could still be some time before the show returns.

Bill Hader as Anthony Scaramucci

Even as a die hard Saturday Night Live fan, I’m not entirely sure that we need a summer edition of Weekend Update for a few weeks before the full 43rd season of the late night sketch series kicks off on September. But after last night’s first episode of Weekend Update: Summer Edition brought back one of the best cast members to ever appear on the show, I’m so glad Colin Jost and Michael Che came back to end the summer with some laughs.

Former cast member Bill Hader made a surprise return to Studio 8H last night, and he brought with him an incredible impression of former White House communications director Anthony Scarmucci, the financier who only worked at the White House for 11 days before being unceremoniously fired from the position before he had even officially started the job.

Watch the sketch featuring Bill Hader as Anthony Scaramucci below. Read More »

Donald Glover Lando Calrissian

The final verse of the 2010 song “Fuck It All” from Childish Gambino – the rap alias of multi-hyphenate Donald Glover – ends with this line: “To all my fans who sayin’ ‘Donald Glover ’bout to blow,’ just give me six months so you can say ‘I told you so.'” It’s hard to believe it’s been seven years since then, but Glover has indeed lived up to that promise: the dude has blown up in multiple entertainment fields, culminating with being cast as Lando Calrissian in Lucasfilm’s upcoming Han Solo movie.

In a new profile, the actor speaks about the director switch-up on that film, and we learn some more details about his meeting with original Lando actor Billy Dee Williams. Plus, there are new revelations about Glover’s roles in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Community that fans should find worthwhile.
