The 42nd season of Saturday Night Live will kick off on October 1st. Just recently we found out the three new names who will be joining the cast following the surprising exits of Jay Pharoah and Taran Killam (and the not-so-surprising exit of featured player Jon Rudnitsky). And now we finally know who will be hosting the season premiere.
Margot Robbie has risen to fame rather quickly in a short period of time thanks to her breakthrough turn in The Wolf of Wall Street up through her recent turn as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. Now she’ll be hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time. Read More »

In recent years, The Simpsons has been executing some very elaborate and outstanding sequences for their traditional couch gag for the opening credits. Earlier this year The Simpsons got a Disney style makeover by Aladdin animator Eric Goldberg and last year featured references to Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty and even another opening done by Ren & Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi.
Now The Simpsons is getting the Adventure Time treatment, and going through Springfield in the same style of the opening credits of the popular Cartoon Network animated series that kids and adults alike rather enjoy. It’s an impressive sequence, and it’s actually twice as long as the usual Adventure Time opening credits. See which Adventure Time characters The Simpsons become and see if you can spot all the Easter eggs, including a monorail reference, in the full couch gag after the jump. Read More »
Back in 2014, FXX had the honor of hosting a marathon of every single episode of The Simpsons ever in honor of all the episodes being made available to stream for the first time ever. Since then, FX’s sister network has been running reruns non-stop from every season (except whatever season is current). Now FXX will be having another marathon of every episode of The Simpsons ever again, but this time it will be even longer, breaking the record it previously set as the longest-running marathon in TV history.

The third season premiere of Star Wars Rebels will air over the weekend. As you probably know, fans went crazy when it was revealed that Grand Admiral Thrawn had been resurrected from Legends and has rejoined the Star Wars universe canon as the season’s big villain. The morning after the episode was screened at Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 I was lucky to get a chance to sit down with Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni and talk about the upcoming season.
We talk about a wide variety of topics, including where we are now in the Star Wars timeline, how Ezra has made so much progress since we last saw him, when we will finally get some X-Wings in the rebellion, his thoughts on The Force Awakens, if it’s possible to actually kill off a good guy or turn them to the dark side on a kid show, if Darth Vader or more Inquisitors will appear in Season 3 of Rebels, the idea of Force neutral characters, how Saw Gerrera ended up in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Wedge Antilles new canon backstory, if Rebels will end before A New Hope begins, the process of adapting Grand Admiral Thrawn back into canon, and much more. Some of these answers have been broken out into stories on the site already, but there is also a wealth of material never published before as well.
And don’t worry, the interview is season three spoiler free. Read our complete Dave Filoni Star Wars Rebels Season 3 interview, after the jump.

In one, Ezra (Taylor Gray) consults a Sith Holocron, while in another, Ezra and Hera (Vanessa Marshall) go undercover and find themselves face-to-face with Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen).

The theme of this season’s American Horror Story was kept a secret until the series premiere last week revealed that an Unsolved Mysteries-like interviews & reenactments docu-mystery homage taking on “the mystery of the Roanoke Colony.” But there must be something to all of those AHS teasers, right? A new theory claims that this new season might be connected to previous seasons of American Horror Story. Find out how, after the jump.

I hadn’t initially planned on seeing This Is Us, Dan Fogelman’s new NBC drama. The billboards and advertising plastered around Los Angeles made it look uninteresting. I’m not against television dramas, I loved Parenthood and Friday Night Lights (although the advertising for those shows didn’t interest me either, it was the buzz from friends that brought me to them). And then the This Is Us reviews came out just before its premiere teasing a big unexpected twist at the end of the pilot episode. Okay, you got me. So I watched it and I have a few thoughts on the matter. Also, Dan Fogelman has done some interviews explaining what the twist will mean for the rest of the series, so if you’re curious about that, join me.

In 1987, the movie Lethal Weapon paired Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in the first of four buddy cop films. It made Gibson a star, proving he was more than just Mad Max, and Glover made “I’m too old for this shit” a catch phrase that has lasted the decades. For 2016, Fox introduces a new Riggs and Murtaugh for the small screen, played by Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans respectively.
Matt Miller created the TV incarnation, with producers Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz. McG directed the pilot. At their TCA panel, Lin said the show wouldn’t interfere with any future movie plans and that they were considering incorporating the characters Leo Getz and Lorna Cole, played by Joe Pesci and Rene Russo in the films, later in the series. We spoke with Miller, Lin and Gwartz at the Fox party for the Television Critics Association. Read More »
