Watch All Six 'The Walking Dead' Webisodes Here

Do you remember, during the first season of 'The Walking Dead,' that half-torso walker that Rick Grimes stumbled upon? You know, the one that you actually felt a little empathy for because there was something that still felt a little human about her? Have you lost sleep wondering how she became this way? Well, aren't YOU lucky. Now, through the magic of Internet video (scientists call these...

Who Scored Big in Week 4 of SNL's Relevancy Poll?

Saturday night's show was, frankly, atrocious. But right at the very moment of our darkest hour, a hero would rise up. A hero who, almost single-handedly, made 'SNL' something to talk about this week. Now, this person didn't ask to be a hero – all he really asked for was some sweets – but, sometimes, legends come out of the most unexpected places. Our hero's name is Lord Cecil...

'The Walking Dead' Season 2 Premiere Recap

I like 'The Walking Dead' again. This comes after not liking 'The Walking Dead' at the end of last season (which I harped on way too much over at Vanity Fair last season) after really liking 'The Walking Dead' when it premiered. But, you see, I still feel a bit burned from last season's debacle. What started as a nuanced and (somewhat) realistic approach to an outbreak that left most of the...

'SNL' Scorecard: Were There any Gems in Anna Faris' Dud of a Show?

So, do you want the good news first or do you want the bad news? "The good news first," you may or may not have said? Well, the good news is that after a rare four week run of live shows, 'SNL' has two weeks off to recharge. And, wow, do they need it. I mean, could last night's Anna Faris monologue have been any more phoned in? It's always a bad sign when the writing staff resorts to "fake...

Who Scored Big in Week 3 of SNL's Relevancy Poll?

The quality of Saturday's show aside, this was the first week that really allowed the cast to be featured on the front lines. Which, yes, lead to a few shakeups in the Relevancy Poll. It is striking, though, to watch the differences in airtime that featured players Taran Killam and Paul Brittain have been receiving. Both guys seem extremely talented, yet Killam is getting more time than even a lot...

'SNL' Scorecard: With Ben Stiller's Show Being This Bad, It's No Wonder Why Eddie Murphy Didn't Show Up

'Saturday Night Live' did itself such a disservice by not immediately squashing the rumors of an Eddie Murphy appearance on last night's show. As we pointed out on Wednesday: this was most likely never, ever going to happen. But it would have been really fantastic if it had – and that's the problem: Anything less than an Eddie Murphy cameo is going to be a letdown. (And it doesn't help...

Who Scored Big in Week 2 of SNL's Relevancy Poll?

Even though the results were disappointing, this week's 'SNL' was, again, very host-centric – meaning there wasn't a ton of lead-role airtime to go around for cast members. Though, Jay Pharoah managed to get his first sketch of the season on the air, while poor Paul Brittain was nearly shut out. But who leads the poll after the second week of the season? A show hosted by 'Bridesmaids' star...

'SNL' Scorecard: Was Melissa McCarthy Even Given a Chance?

Someday Melissa McCarthy will be a good 'SNL' host. Her name will be mentioned alongside recent 'SNL' hosting phenoms like Jon Hamm and Justin Timberlake. Hell, if given some better than average material last night to back up her deliveries, we may already be mentioning her name as part of this class. Unfortunately, McCarthy did what she could with a writing staff that seemed to take the week...

Who Scored Big in Week 1 of SNL's Relevancy Poll?

The first week of 'Saturday Night Live' is in the books, which means it's once again time to go to the Relevancy Poll to see who's getting the most out of their airtime. (The final results of last year's poll are over here.) Host Alec Baldwin dominated the smaller sketches, and with a plethora of ensemble sketches (three in all), at least so far, it's hard to get a true gage on how things will...

'SNL' Scorecard: Did Steve Martin Succeed in Sabotaging Alec Baldwin's Show?

Watching Alec Baldwin host 'SNL' – which he has now done a record 16 times -- has become a little like purchasing a recent album from the now disbanded R.E.M.: We know that we're going to get a solid effort – even great, at times -- but the truly memorable moments are from the first decade of work. A point Baldwin even kind of alludes to in last night's monologue. The first show of...
