  • The NFL Discard Pile

    While the NFL dropped an incredible weekend of wild-card action onto our televisions this past weekend, the 20 NFL teams without playoff berths continued to move on with their respective offseasons. In the middle of writing previews and recaps, I wasn’t able to get to a few stories that are worth a closer look. That’s […]

  • Hollywood Prospectus Podcast: 2014, Matthew McConaughey, and Crime Movies

    What do you need to know about this forward-looking episode of the Hollywood Prospectus podcast? In the opening, we mention French Montana’s new mixtape, Coke Boys 4, and everything went uphill from there. We did 30 solid minutes talking about Matthew McConaughey and how he is going to win 2014 with True Detective and Interstellar […]

  • Explosion Artist Michael Bay Can’t Improvise Any Kind Words About a Gigantic Curved TV

    When you’re Samsung, presenting your 150-inch curved TV at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, you might as well invite Michael Bay to speak. (His travel costs were virtually nonexistent; Optimus Prime just walked him over from Hong Kong.) If your teleprompter’s gonna go all wackadoo, though, leave Michael Bay out of it. Apparently […]

  • Afternoon Links: Would You Like to See Seth Meyers’s Late Night Set?

    Well, so would he. The joint’s not quite ready yet, but it does happen to be within spitting distance of SNL‘s Studio 8H. Once it’s all built and Seth’s new desk shows up and everything, Late Night will embark on a voyage fairly unlike the one chartered by Jimmy Fallon, according to Time. Sketches will […]

  • Are You Pissed Off for Greatness?

    Some of the Internet’s greatest gifts are the absurd hype videos that get posted on YouTube before any big sporting event. They are stupid and formulaic, full of cheesy music and highlights, and I will love them until the end of time. With that in mind, there’s only one way to prepare for the national […]

  • Sasheer Zamata Is the New Black Female SNL Cast Member

    After a strikingly pallid crop of new cast members in 2013, followed by a loud public outcry, followed by a few self-deprecating jokes and a Kerry Washington hosting spot, ultimately leading to solid rumors of a midseason ethno-specific casting hunt, Saturday Night Live has finally found its new black female cast member. We did it! […]

  • Announcing Has a Problem: The Most Annoying Tic in Broadcasting Today

    If you made an exhaustive list of all the sports announcers who drive fans crazy, Al Michaels would either settle in somewhere near the bottom or not show up at all.
