Who Scored Big in Week 6 of SNL's Relevancy Poll?

The reason that Emma Stone is such a good host is that she could easily be a cast member. The sketches don't have to feature her; she can just blend in and play a supporting character. In other words: she doesn't have to be the center of attention. Because of this, it leads to a show in which the cast can really shine. And, collectively, they did! But there were a few that had really standout week...

'The Walking Dead' Season 2, Episode 5 Recap (VIDEO)

'The Walking Dead' does itself such a disservice with the flashback scenes. Honestly, they are so interesting! While we've spent, now, five full episodes searching for a character that no one cares about, a flashback shows the streets of Atlanta being napalmed. Now that's a television show. The bad news: We were soon back in the present and graced by the presence of Lori fretting about her pregnan...

'SNL' Scorecard: Did Spider-Man Rescue Emma Stone's Show?

Last season, Emma Stone hosted 'SNL' for the first time, a show that would introduce us to "Sex" Ed Vincent and "Les Jeunes de Paris." For Stone's return visit, "Les Jeunes de Paris" was back for a third time (sadly, "Sex" Ed still isn't back) – in fact, for whatever reason, of the first eight sketches of the night (including the two Update segments), only the Digital Short wasn't a recu...

Alexander Skarsgard On His 'True Blood' Menage a Trois

Alexander Skarsgard is well aware that he can't be the scoundrelly yet, at times, amiable, vampire Eric Northman forever. That's not to say that he hasn't enjoyed his time on 'True Blood'; he has, even if that does include filming an occasional ménage à trois with real-life husband and wife Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin. But he also realizes that continuing to play the versions of Er...

Chris Cooper: 'The Corrections' on HBO Will Make Jonathan Franzen Proud

Chris Cooper won an Oscar playing a hirsute orchid-hunter in Spike Jonze's 'Adaptation,' and he's set to star as the villainous Tex Richman in this Thanksgiving's highly anticipated 'The Muppets,' but early next year he'll set his sights on the smaller screen. Cooper is scheduled to begin shooting the HBO adaptation of Jonathan Franzen's best-selling novel 'The Corrections' in 2012. In the seri...

Who Scored Big in Week 5 of SNL's Relevancy Poll?

For whatever reason, I had a feeling that Saturday night's show was going to be one of the better efforts of the season. Maybe I'm psychic! (Unfortunately, I'm not psychic.) Too often, when making 'SNL' predictions, the discussions break down into either, "Well, he's funny," or, "She was great in this movie, ergo, she will be a terrific 'SNL' host." (For the record, I may be the only person alive ...

'The Walking Dead' Season 2, Episode 4 Recap

['The Walking Dead' - 'Cherokee Rose'] Near the end of the fifth season of 'Three's Company,' there's an episode that centers on Ralph Furley receiving a visit from his niece, Veronica. Now, Veronica, as it turns out, is a very attractive woman who looks nothing at all like Don Knotts. Of course, this means that Jack Tripper is immediately attracted to Veronica, as Jack is wont to being attract...

'SNL' Scorecard: Did Charlie Day Have a Great Saturday Night?

Well, what a difference a couple weeks off can make. Charlie Day lent his manic persona to a show that started slowly (the cold open was immediately forgettable) became worse (I wonder how many people switched off their televisions during the 'Dr. Oz' sketch), then found itself in a zone that, for the most part, built momentum as the show continued – thanks mostly to the chemistry betwee...

'The Walking Dead' Season 2, Episode 3 Recap

Poor Otis. Before we even begin to delve into Shane's actions to end the episode, there's something else that's been bugging me for now two episodes. Near the middle of last night's episode, when Shane returns to the house with the medical supplies, after explaining that Otis didn't make it (before we knew exactly why Otis didn't make it back), Rick tries to comfort the rest of the group by saying...

'The Walking Dead' Season 2, Episode 2 Recap (VIDEO)

['The Walking Dead' - 'Secrets'] So ... for as much as I enjoyed the slow pace of last week's episode, especially when contrasted to the ridiculousness of the end of last season, I have to say: OK, I get it. This isn't last season. We're taking it slow! So, yes, Sophia is still lost in the woods. And the group is still looking for her. There's your recap, folks! Hope you enjoyed it! Kiddi...
