Funny or Die Home for ActressesMegan Mullally, Lake Bell, Lizzy Caplan, Casey Wilson, Aubrey Plaza, Ellie Kemper and Michaela Watkins have teamed up for a new Funny Or Die video, 'Home for Actresses.' See, we weren't kidding with that headline.

In the new video, Mullally plays Peggy Dvorak, the owner/headmistress of an institute that acts as an "in-patient" facility for actresses to learn how to be cooler. As if the likes of Plaza, Wilson and Caplan needed help getting cooler.

She's not teaching acting, because "acting can't be taught," no, Peggy teaches these very funny ladies "how to be cool." From fashion tips to dating do's and don'ts -- date a guy with a drug problem -- Peggy has advice for all situations.

Check out the video below.

Tina FeyFirst, Tina Fey and '30 Rock' gave us their take on 'Survivor' with 'MILF Island.' Now, they're taking on the hottest reality franchise on cable right now: 'The Real Housewives.'

According to TV Guide, Angie Jordan (Sherri Shepherd) gets cast in a 'Real Housewives'-esque series that puts cameras on Tracy (Tracy Morgan) 24/7. What's this do to him? "Having the cameras around forces Tracy to act on better behavior,"'30 Rock' executive producer Robert Carlock told TV Guide.

Look for a potential appearance from Bravo's Andy Cohen. "Tina certainly enjoys him and we have joked about having him on," Carlock said. "Maybe we will."

'Childrens Hospital': Chief Thinks Daughter's Boyfriend Is Child Molester (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Oct 25th 2010 10:05AM
'Childrens Hospital': Is Daughter's Boyfriend a Child Molester?On 'Childrens Hospital' (Sun., 12AM ET on CN), Chief (Megan Mullally) thinks the guy making out with her daughter is a child molester. She picks up the bag of lollipops on the end of the hospital bed and yells, "Where you're going, you're gonna get your lollipop licked plenty -- by a bunch of dudes!"

"Mom, this is my boyfriend," says her daughter (Lizzy Caplan). "I'm 27 years old. He's not a child molester because I'm not a child."

Still not convinced, Chief asks, "Where did he touch you? Honey, show me," and pulls out a plush duck. She and her BF reply "yes" to all the places her mother points to on the stuffed animal.

"Mom, everywhere. We've had sex." And her boyfriend has a large supply of lollipops and drives an "unmarked white van because [he is] an undercover lollipop salesman." Sure. That makes sense.

CBS orders more episodes of The Class

by Joel Keller, posted Nov 16th 2006 12:01PM
The ClassDespite mediocre ratings and equally mediocre reviews (including mine), CBS has been happy enough with The Class to order more episodes of the "half-hour comic-sudser," as Variety so adroitly called it.

But the show is not getting the entire "back nine" just yet. According to that Variety article, CBS is hoping the mid-season show Rules of Engagement, starring David Spade and Patrick Warburton, will work well in the Monday comedy block where The Class currently resides.

Another article, on USAToday.com, says that newer episodes of the show will concentrate on fewer characers.

The Class: The Class Goes to a Bar

by Joel Keller, posted Nov 7th 2006 12:01AM
The Class(S01E07) Maybe the writers of The Class are getting the hint and following what seems to be a pretty obvious suggestion: take out storylines! Let the characters breathe! Get rid of the high-strung socialite and the husband she doesn't realize is gay! This episode managed to do all of that; we don't see Holly and Kyle (and Holly's Paul Lynde sound-alike husband) at all, and Duncan and Nicole get some time to interact without Yonk in the way, and take Lina and Richie along for the ride. And, of course, Kat and Ethan do their goofy stuff, this time in a bar (notice most of the episodes have been named for the Kat/Ethan story of the week? I just figured that out tonight... I'm slow, I guess).

So, now that things are a bit smoother and less cluttered, there'd be more room for the funny right? Well, that's what you might think, but you'd be wrong.

CBS orders more scripts for The Class

by Brett Love, posted Oct 24th 2006 12:02PM
Lizzy CaplanAnd then there was one. Now that CBS has picked up Jericho and Shark for full seasons, and canceled Smith, they are left with just one more new show to make a decision on. The Class hasn't made the decision easy. They had a slow start that led to the shuffling of timeslots in the Monday comedy block. While the show has performed better since it started following How I Met Your Mother, it's not quite good enough to get picked up, yet. CBS has ordered four more scripts for the show which gives it a little more time to impress.

I'd like to see the show get a full season. After a pilot that I didn't think was very good at all, the show has really turned a corner. The Duncan/Nicole part of the story is a little dull at times, but the rest of the pairings are working out well. Lizzy Caplan (Kat) is fantastic, while Sean Maguire (Kyle) and Cristian de la Fuente (Aaron) have had some of the funniest scenes in the show. I've even been pulled in to the strange Richie's wife plot. My guess is that the show will eventually make it to a full season.

The Class: The Class Goes Trick or Treating

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 23rd 2006 10:44PM
The Class(S01E06) For a fleeting second, I thought The Class was just going to concentrate on two stories this week. For the first act, it looked like all we'd see was Richie, Duncan and Yonk in Atlantic City and Holly's adventures at the petting zoo. Yes, one of the storylines would be a Holly storyline, but I was glad that the writers decided to smarten up and rotate out one storyline per week, leaving more room for silly things like effective jokes and character development.

But then I saw Lina in an FDR costume and Kat being Kat, and I just went, "oh crap."

The Class: The Class Gets Frozen Yogurt

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 16th 2006 11:31PM
The Class(S01E05) This review is not going to be pretty, boys and girls, because I'm starting to lose my patience with The Class. There's too many stories and not enough laughs. Right now, the only storyline that has any redeeming qualities, the constant efforts of Kat to bring Ethan out of his nice guy shell, really is just being used as a goofy side-story to all of the other, more emotional stories. But the problem is, those stories are becoming less entertaining by the week, and the "complications" that the writers are throwing in are just distractions.

The Fall's Hottest Hotties

by Brett Love, posted Oct 9th 2006 11:04AM
Adrianne Palicki - Friday Night LightsThere is an odd list over at MSN where they pick Fall TV's Hottest Hotties. It's strange because of the haphazard way they go about the list. Apparently 25 wasn't enough slots, so they have the entire cast of Studio 60, and the cast of Prison Break on the list. Now, I'll give you Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell, but when you say the "cast of Prison Break" you are including Robert Knepper (T-Bag) and Peter Stormare (Abruzzi). They are both great in their parts, but hotties?

Another oddity is that David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel from Bones are lumped together in the list. It's strange not only because she is the third hottest woman on that show, but also because later Jason Ritter and Lizzy Caplan from The Class take up two separate spots.

As with every list like this, someone always gets left off. I would have liked to see Adrianne Palicki (Tyra on Friday Night Lights) in there somewhere. She's cute and that show can use all the help in can get right now. And it is hard to argue with Anya from Deal or No Deal. Unless you bring up that her only line on the show is "Hi Howie." Who is your favorite Fall Hottie?

The Class: The Class Learns About Hurricanes

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 3rd 2006 7:35AM
The Class cast(S01E03) I saw a rough-cut version of this episode about a week ago; it was so rough that the video time stamp was sitting not only in the corner of the screen, but in the corner of the TV picture Kyle and Aaron were watching. But no matter; the jokes were the same. It's sort of ironic that, in this episode, the storyline that had the least amount of plot -- Kyle and Aaron watching Holly do one of those "poor schmuck reporter in a hurricane" reports -- had the most laughs. I mean, who didn't laugh when Holly got knocked cold by a stop sign?

Anyway, the rest of the episode shows that The Class is going in a funny direction. It also shows that it's willing to take some time and figure out which stories work and which don't.

The Class: The Class Visits a Hospital

The Class: The Class Visits a Hospital(S01E02) For those of you who were trying to figure out how eight relative strangers, thrown together in a kind of a convoluted fashion, was going to constitute a sitcom, this episode shows you what the formula is going to be.

And what is that formula? Three parallel storylines that are not designed to intersect for some time in the future. You've got sappy Ethan's brewing friendship with the cynical Kat and Richie's accident-prone flirtation with Kat's twin Lina (how convenient is it that Kat and Lina are twins? That ensures that two of the pairs of strangers will stay connected); you have Nicole and Duncan's affair; and you have Kyle and Holly, who are still rebuilding their friendship after he came out of the closet at their prom ten years ago.

McDermott, Malick join ABC pilots

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 11th 2006 6:21PM
malick mcdermott pilotsLots of casting news today in The Hollywood Reporter. Dylan McDermott has joined the cast of the ABC drama, A House Divided. It's about a rift between a midwestern farming community and the federal government. I wish I knew more because, wow, that sounds like a snoozer. Sarah Clarke (aka 'Nina' on 24) is also part of the cast. She plays the wife of the lead character, which might just be McDermott.

Wendie Malick, of Just Shoot Me and Jake in Progress, has been cast in the ABC comedy pilot, A Day in the Life. The show is about a young couple's wedding day, from different points of view (I imagine it'll have to advance past the wedding day). Malick plays the mother of the bride.
