Fox News Confuses Sarah Palin and Tina Fey in Graphic Gaffe (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Jun 6th 2011 6:30PM
Tina Fey's impression of Sarah Palin has left such an indelible impression on the American consciousness that even Fox News can't tell the two apart.

On Sunday, while Fox News anchor Shannon Bream was teasing an interview with the former Alaska governor, Fox flashed a graphic of Fey doing her Palin impression on 'Saturday Night Live.'

The visual blunder came on a day when Palin was busy defending her unique historical interpretation of Paul Revere's ride, which may have Fey reprising her famous impression sooner rather than later.

Check out a clip of the snafu and a statement from Fox News after the jump.

Saturday Night Live Unused Sketch'Saturday Night Live' paid tribute to Tina Fey and her new book, 'Bossypants,' with a salute to women writers.

Turns out the salute wasn't much of a a tribute, but just a chance to make it look like Tina Fey thinks a lot of history's great female writers were pretty fugly.

Watch the video after the jump, and don't be surprised if you come to the realization that Bill Hader is a great narrator.

Tina Fey Returns as Sarah Palin, Darrell Hammond is Donald Trump on 'SNL' (VIDEO)

Tina Fey & Darrell Hammond, 'Saturday Night Live'Tina Fey returned to the stage that made her famous when she hosted 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC). She hinted about her most famous impression in the opening monologue, and then later she popped on those glasses and Sarah Palin was back!

But Fey didn't return for this 'SNL' take on the recent Republican debate alone. She was joined on stage by impressionist Darrell Hammond doing his classic Donald Trump, as well as the usual cast playing some of the other Republican candidates. But it was Fey and Hammond who stole the show.

"I just hope tonight that the lamestream media won't twist my words by repeating them verbatim," Fey said in character. She took a moment to acknowledge the elimination of one of "the world's great villains," Katie Couric.

Tina Fey Hosts 'Saturday Night Live' (VIDEO)

by PopEater Staff, posted May 8th 2011 10:40AM
Kicking off what she dubbed 'the Mother's Day episode,' Tina Fey hosted 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend with a dose of her usual self-deprecation.

Making the most of her six-months' pregnant figure, the '30 Rock' star -- and former 'SNL' head writer -- brought out fellow expectant mom Maya Rudolph for a belly-bump greeting, and a song devoted to their soon-to-be-born children.

The soothing lullaby opened with lyrics such as "I cannot wait to know you," then quickly segued into a raunchy ode to procreation: "You are the proof that we've been doin' it....makin' super sexy heat...your mom and daddy been doin' it!" Mid-duet, the two even had a faux sonogram while each fetus -- Keenan Thompson and Kristen Wiig -- sang along in utero.

After the jump, check out a few of our favorite clips from Fey's hosting gig: her maternal, musical monologue, a sketch about a horrifying birthing class, and a parody of this week's Republican debate, which featured her famous Sarah Palin impression.

It was a wild week at TV Replay, filled with parodies, bad poetry and multiples varieties of hilarity. Here are five our favorite clips; check them out and let us know which you enjoyed the most by voting in the poll below.

Donald Trump didn't have a very good week. After hounding President Obama for his birth certificate on every TV show that would have him, Obama released the official document, skewered Trump at the White House Press dinner, and then took out Osama bin Laden. Jimmy Fallon's Trump impression put a nice bow-tie on the cosmic absurdity of it all.


Elisabeth Hasselbeck dealt with the news of bin Laden's death in her own special way: by writing a 4-line children's poem to explain the news to her young kids. As Nick Zaino wrote at the time, "Caldecott Medal judges, take note."

Tina Fey & Amy Poehler, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Jersey invaded 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM on NBC), along with several of Jimmy Fallon's former 'Saturday Night Live' castmates. It was a veritable reunion of the power women of five to ten years ago with Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Rachel Dratch all appearing.

The video short was an obvious spoof of 'Jersey Shore,' featuring Fey and Poehler as two new girls coming into the club with some very different ideas to most of the gorillas in there.

"Let's have a relationship," Poehler told one guy as they were grinding to the beat.

Fey approached Fallon. "I wanna make babies with you," she said, properly freaking him out.

Tina Fey Jokes She'll 'Never' Learn Gender of New BabyTina Fey of '30 Rock' continued to be cagey about the sex of her second child on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated). Fey recently said she knows the child's gender on 'The Late Show With David Letterman,' but she offered no additional details while speaking with Ellen DeGeneres.

Fey, who's due at the end of summer, joked that she and husband Jeffrey Richmond intend to wait a significant number of years before actually learning the baby's sex.

"Do you know what it's going to be?" he inquired. "It's going to be a werewolf," she quipped.

Now, about the father, what's he like? "He can cook, he can paint, he's a musician," she said of composer Jeff Richmond.

"This is a man we're talking about?" snarked the host. "Is he Canadian or something?"

Fey said he's "part Welsh, part hillbilly," and Ferguson figured he sounded good enough to marry. She already has -- but good to know that Ferguson approves.

Tina Fey Remembers Her Humble Beginnings at Second City Comedy (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 13th 2011 3:45PM
Tina Fey on 'Today'Chicago's Second City is a revered institution in the comedy community, having produced a long list of talented performers from Alan Arkin and Joan Rivers, to John Belushi and Gilda Radner, to Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell. So it made sense to hear Tina Fey on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) describing how she thought she'd "made it" in the mid-90s because she was working and touring with the troupe.

"It was kind of a cult of improv comedy where people would just, all they cared about was just comedy, doing improv all the time," said Fey. "We used to travel around the country and do shows for the Second City Touring Company where we'd get $75 a show and we were like, 'Yes!'"

Tina Fey, Tracy Morgan, Dana Carvey, Jane Curtin, and Chevy Chase on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show'Tracy Morgan is known as a good talk-show guest, mainly for his freewheeling comic style. Today on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (weekdays, syndicated), he provided an emotional moment on a 'Saturday Night Live All-Stars' show that also included Tina Fey, Dana Carvey, Jane Curtin and Chevy Chase.

Winfrey prompted Morgan to share the story of his father, a Vietnam veteran and a fan of the original 'SNL.'

Morgan pointed at Curtain and Chase and thanked them. "I remember my father coming from Vietnam," Morgan said. "He had went through that and he wasn't laughing much. And then one night in 1975 he turned on 'Saturday Night Live' and ... I'd never heard my father laugh like that."

Curtin and Chase seemed touched by Morgan's gesture. It looked like something Morgan had perhaps wanted to say for a while.

Alec Baldwin won TV Comedy Actor, while Fey picked up a writing award for the show. She took home a second trophy in the Film Comedy Actress category for her work in 'Date Night.'

She inspired a new activity for bored college students across the nation with her acceptance speech for the latter.

"The only thing that I knew for sure while we were making this movie was that I was f****** crushing Helen Mirren at acting," she said. "If you watch 'Date Night' side by side next to 'The Queen,' it's embarrassing for her."

Preview: 'The Comedy Awards' on Comedy Central

Stpehen Colbert and Jon Stewart on 'The Comedy Awards'
People in the entertainment industry love to give each other awards... except for the folks in the world of comedy.

There could be a couple of reasons for it: Most comedians would rather make fun of awards shows than be a part of one. And with comedians being a generally self-deprecating group, self-back-patting has never been in their DNA. It's probably why there hasn't been any major comedy awards show since 2001, when the American Comedy Awards went kaput after 14 years.

But Comedy Central knows comedy should be rewarded, which is why it's giving out the first annual Comedy Awards tonight at 9PM ET (it airs on Comedy Central, Spike TV, CMT, Logo, TV Land, VH1 and Nick at Nite). Because the ceremony was taped on March 26, there are plenty of live blogs out there to tell you what to expect. Some highlights, and preview clips, after the jump.

"I will tell you one thing," he told the reporter. "And that is our show -- next year is our last year of the show."

Though Baldwin has commented in the past that he didn't intend to stay on the NBC series after his contract expires in 2012 (maybe he'll run for office instead), no one from the show has discussed the fate of the entire series after his departure.
