Elizabeth Berkley is best known for her role as Jessie Spano on the generation-defining program Saved By The Bell, but there’s no sense denying that the ghost of Showgirls still trails her everywhere she goes. Yes, even to Dancing With The Stars, where she’s currently locked in mortal combat with the likes of Snooki, Jack Osbourne, and a bunch of people we’ve never heard of.
Miley Cyrus took a short break from posing with Arizona Iced Tea cans in dangerously close proximity to her hoohah to be the host and musical guest of Saturday Night Live last night. She did not, as forecasted, use the opportunity to take any pot shots at Sinead O’Connor, but she DID dress up as crazy eyed Michele Bachman and twerked while singing about the government shutdown, though!
When Saturday Night Live launches its 39th season tonight with host Tina Fey and musical guest Arcade Fire, viewers who haven’t been paying attention to the trades over the summer will notice that a few familiar faces are no longer treading the boards of Studio 8H; longtime (and very popular!) castmembers Fred Armisen, Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis have all exited the cast* for purportedly greener pastures. Taking their place are six new faces, making it the biggest cast transition since 1995. So, who exactly are these new featured players? Find out all about them in our gallery above!
If you missed Wednesday’s Very VH1 Spreecast with Wire and Treme vet Wendell Pierce, today is your lucky day. The co-star of NBC’s brand new The Michael J. Fox Show, which premiered last night, was born and raised in NOLA, the epicenter of the twerking phenomenon. We couldn’t resist asking him what he thought of this craze going national, but we were totally surprised (and delighted!) by his colorful and scholarly remarks on the subject.
Kanye West has kept a pretty low media profile since releasing Yeezus earlier this year, which is why it came as a complete shock to everyone in the entertainment and journalism industries that he decided to sit down with Best Week Ever‘s Jared Logan (!) to give his first longform interview about the project. The two discuss everything that Yeezy’s myriad fans hoped and dreamed they would: Water bottle design, Jar Jar Binks, and leather jogging pants. Sit back and enjoy the most spectacular two minutes and 31 seconds of your day, week, month, year and, quite possibly, life! (And don’t forget to tune-in to a brand new Best Week Ever tomorrow night at 10PM/9C!)
I think the clock is slow! Whenever we take a glance at the time, it seems like we still have AGES until Sunday night’s Breaking Bad series finale airs (for the record, as of this writing, it is 81 hours and 46 minutes away!). Best Week Ever‘s own Michelle Buteau is feeling the same way, but unlike us, she’s got direct access to RJ Mitte, who plays Walt Jr., a.k.a. Flynn on the show. In an attempt to find out how the series ends, she pulls out ALL the stops in order to get Walt Jr. to spill the beans. Can she do it? Watch the clip above, and tune in to a brand-new episode of Best Week Ever this Friday night at 10 pm ET to find out!
Lacking the glamour of the Oscars, the drunken party vibe of the Golden Globes, and the sensational spectacle of the Grammys, the Emmys are generally the snooziest of the major awards shows. They’re so snoozy, in fact, that the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences—FWIW, the “Sciences” part of that title always makes us laugh—are planning to air FIVE different tributes to individuals who have died in the past year in an attempt to keep viewers from switching over to Breaking Bad. While we’re sure those moments will be moving, there is ONE segment of the broadcast that has the nation riveted. No, it’s not who’s going to win Best Drama or Best Comedy, but rather which late star will anchor the famed In Memoriam death montage?
Millions of Americans are mourning the impending loss of Breaking Bad—only two more episodes to go!—but VH1 has the cure for what ails you: A brand new season of Best Week Ever, premiering Friday, September 20 at 10PM/9C. As Jesse Pinkman might say, “Yo, that’s tomorrow, bitch!” If you’re wondering what’s next for Walter White, BWE’s own Nick Turner has some top secret insight. Spoiler alert: Walter’s a dick!
Orange Is The New Black was released too late to be considered for the 2013 Emmy nominations, but the brand new Netflix series has quickly established itself to be one of the frontrunners for next year’s competition. The show, which is the latest series from Weeds creator Jenji Kohan, revolves around the travails of Piper Chapman (played by Taylor Schilling), a blonde WASPy type whose seemingly picture perfect life is turned upside-down when she’s sent to prison on drug smuggling charges. The series is drawing raves from critics and being streamed at record rates, thanks to its outstanding balance of comedy, drama and sexytimes, not to mention its ethnically diverse (and largely female) ensemble cast.
