A&E to do live Criss Angel show - VIDEO

Criss Angel with a kittyA&E will celebrate the return of Mindfreak (in it's fourth season, God help us) by broadcasting the first ever live episode of the show. The special one-hour episode will feature Angel shackled to a six-story building. He must escape to a helicopter hovering over the rooftop as the building explodes. But wait, there's more. The fourth season kicks off one week before the live show with "Walk on a Lake," the season premiere. In this episode, the magician will attempt to walk on the world's largest man-made lake, Lake Mead in Nevada.

I think all the season premiere will prove is that Criss Angel definitely has a God-complex. He is the biggest megalomanic douchebag I've ever seen on TV. I think the best thing to come of Mindfreak is that parody Mad TV did. I put the video after the jump.

The live Mindfreak will air on July 30th at 10 p.m. ET on A&E. The season premiere will air on July 23rd at 10 p.m. ET. Will you be watching?

How'd that live SNL stage show go? The NY Times was there

Makeshift SNLI went to the UCB Theatre in New York on Sunday night to see their signature show, "ASSSSCAT." It was side-splittingly funny as usual; the group last night featured UCB founder and SNLer Amy Poehler, Jack McBrayer and John Lutz from 30 Rock, Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel from Human Giant, among others, and the guest monologist was Samm Levine (Freaks and Geeks). I had a fantastic time.

But I kind of wish I was at the theater about 20 hours before that, when the entire cast of SNL put on a makeshift version of their show, hosted by Michael Cera (we mentioned this show when it was announced last week). Fortunately, The New York Times was there, and they not only have an article about the event, but a nice slide show as well.
