Next month, it feels like everyone in the world will be heading to the movies to catch Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But there are plenty of people who simply don’t give a damn about the sci-fi franchise and may be in the mood for something completely different. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have you covered.
Sisters brings the Saturday Night Live veterans together on the big screen yet again, following their team-up on Baby Mama and their brief cameo in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. But this time they’re really cutting loose by throwing one last huge party in the house their parents just sold, and you can see how it goes in the new Sisters international trailer. Read More »

We’ve got one more episode of Saturday Night Live left in November with Matthew McConaughey taking the stage of Studio 8H as host (Elizabeth Banks just hosted this past weekend for a great episode), but it looks like December is going to send the sketch show out of 2015 with a bang.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be hosting the final episode of the year on December 19th — just in time to promote their comedy Sisters, which is going up against Star Wars: The Force Awakens to serve as counter-programming for those who don’t care about Jedi or Wookiees. And joining them will be the Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen, as musical guest.
But they’re not the only ones hitting SNL in December. A Marvel superhero and a gifted driver will be hosting as well. Read More »

While most movies have scrambled to get the hell away from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Tina Fey‘s new comedy Sisters planted a flag on December 18, 2015 last year and hasn’t budged. “We said we’d only do the movie if it opened against Star Wars,” joked Fey’s co-star Amy Poehler. “We are going to fucking crush Star Wars.”
And while that prediction seems, uh, pretty far-fetched, Fey apparently isn’t intimidated by Disney’s other upcoming offerings, either. She’ll face off against the studio again in March, as her upcoming Afghanistan War comedy (formerly titled Taliban Shuffle) has just staked out a release against Disney’s Zootopia. Read More »
Last night brought Tracy Morgan back to Studio 8H to host Saturday Night Live for a second time, after hosting the show back in 2009. But more importantly, this was also his first time actually performing (with the exception of a couple small appearances on awards broadcasts and talk shows) on television since his near-fatal accident about 16 months ago.
The good news is that not only was this a triumphant return for Tracy Morgan, but this was just a plain great episode of SNL. I’m not even cutting Morgan slack since this is a big comeback for him. This was just a solid episode all around, and Morgan’s presence only made it better. So let’s get down to the sketches.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have turned their friendship into a major part of their career; I know I’m not the only one who could dispense with pretty much every part of the recent Golden Globe ceremonies that aren’t the two making jokes about the proceedings. The duo is back on the big screen this Christmas in Sisters, which casts Fey and Poehler as reunited siblings who throw a big party in their childhood home. (And which has nothing to do with the Brian De Palma thriller of the same name.)
This time, Tina Fey is the wilder of the two, while Poehler plays the straight-laced over-achiever. Though once things get going, it looks like the real appeal of the film may simply be watching the two riff on jokes together, and that’s OK with us. Check out the Sisters trailer here. Read More »

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have insisted that this year was their last hosting the Golden Globes, but that doesn’t mean their days of collaboration are over. Far from it. Last night’s Globes ceremony proved the perfect time to debut the first look at Sisters, their new comedy.
Directed by Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect), Sisters centers on two estranged sisters who decide to throw one last party before their parents sell off their childhood home. Watch the first Sisters TV spot after the jump. Read More »
Tina Fey‘s new show, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, was going to be a mid-season replacement on NBC. That network, of course, is where Fey got her big break on Saturday Night Live; then it became the butt of her jokes on the award-winning sitcom 30 Rock. So it seemed like the perfect fit.
However, in what seems to be a happy split, the show – which stars Office-alum Ellie Kemper as a cult dropout trying to make it in New York City- will now debut on Netflix in March 2015. More so, it got an immediate two-season order from the streaming company. Read more about the new Tina Fey show and the move to Netflix below. Read More »
