This weekend brought the 43rd season of Saturday Night Live to a close with beloved cast member Tina Fey returning to host the finale. Whenever a cast member comes back as host for the season finale, then we’re usually in store for a ton of cameos from former cast members coming to play around on the show. But last night’s finale brought so much more than that.
When Tina Fey hosted Saturday Night Live last night, she brought quite the array of celebrity cameos, making for one of the most star-studded monologues I’ve seen in awhile. It wasn’t just former cast members coming back either, but there were a handful of big name stars appearing out of nowhere. And the monologue wasn’t the only place where cameos happened in this solid but not great season finale. Read More »

It’s been two and a half years since David Letterman left behind The Late Show at CBS for a little bit of a retirement. But as any comedian will tell you, staying out of the spotlight isn’t easy. So we weren’t surprised to learn last summer that David Letterman was putting together an original series for Netflix.
Now Netflix has announced out of nowhere that David Letterman’s new series will premiere on the streaming service next week, and the first teaser for the 60-minute talk show is available to watch. Letterman has some impressive guests lined up for the first six episodes, but unlike the rest of Netflix’s shows, you’ll have to wait a month between each one.

It’s been over four years since Tina Fey and Robert Carlock‘s hit, Emmy-winning comedy series 30 Rock came to an end on NBC. Thankfully, their series The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix has helped fill the void, but the network that turned Tina Fey into a star on Saturday Night Live is about to bring her back to primetime.
Earlier this year, NBC brought the freshman comedy series Great News to air. Created by 30 Rock producer and writer Tracey Wigfield (and again executive produced by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock), the series follows a news reporter (Briga Heelan) who is forced to deal with her eccentric mother (Andrea Martin), who has just become an intern at the network news program for which she works. Surrounding them is quite the odd team of news anchors, producers, and staff members, making for a show that’s like The Newsroom meets 30 Rock.
Great News had a solid first season that shows the potential for greatness, just like 30 Rock, and for the second season coming this fall, they’ll be getting a little help from Tina Fey, who is joining the series for an extended arc. Find out more below. Read More »

Because today we have the first trailer for the second season of the comedy series from 30 Rock creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock.
Ellie Kemper is back as the young, clueless woman still adjusting to life in New York City after escaping the bunker of a wacky cult who had convinced her that the world had ended.
