Smooth-talking, erudite Brian Griffin is really and truly dead… at least, until Family Guy revives him somehow, likely during the show’s Dec. 15 installment. But in the meantime, the pup has gone to that big dog run in the sky — leaving a hole in our hearts, the Griffin family, and the series’ opening credits, which traditionally feature every member of the clan doing a snazzy song-and-dance number.
Enter Vinny, the family’s replacement pet — a street-smart hound voiced by Sopranos star Tony Sirico. You can’t hear Paulie Walnuts singing in the show’s revamped opening credits… but you can see him stepping in for Brian, wearing his very own gold tuxedo and everything.
SHRIEEEEK! OH. MY. GOD. You guys, it’s… One Direction! No, Paul Rudd! Wait, no, Kristen Wiig! Fred Armisen?! Will Ferrell! David Koechner! Steve Carell! … Bill Brasky?!?!?!
Deep breaths, dear SNL-watching, squee-happy readers, because even though last night’s show paraded out surprise guests like Captain von Trapp did his children in The Sound of Music Live & Condensed, the strong sketches that opened the evening quickly led to lackluster ones with diminishing returns that didn’t effectively showcase host Paul Rudd nor had any particularly inspired ideas (there are exceptions, of course — more on those below).

In this corner: Charming, charismatic, boyishly handsome Paul Rudd, a potential vampire who successfully made the transition from rom-coms to quirkier comedies long before tonight’s musical guests had anything approaching fame. In this corner: The charming, charismatic, boyishly handsome members of One Direction, a lad band with an army of tweenage fans and the power to make even curmudgeons admit that its songs sure are catchy.
Which of these two will rule the roost at Saturday Night Live tonight? The obvious answer is Rudd. He’s a veteran SNL host with two other stints under his belt already, a talented improviser who’s won membership into a number of exclusive comedic fraternities, and, oh yeah, a lead in one of winter’s biggest movies: Anchorman 2, of which you may be ignorant only if you’ve somehow stayed away from the Internet and television and movie theaters and well-traveled roads for the past few months. Given the film’s nonstop promotional campaign and the backgrounds of Rudd’s co-stars — one starred on an NBC sitcom for seven season, another was a cast member on SNL for just as long, and the third both played the first one’s best buddy on said sitcom and had a brief stint on SNL as well – it’s also almost inevitable that Rudd’s hosting gig will come complete with cameos from Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, and Dave Koechner. (In my dream world, Christina Applegate is there too.) A lineup like that would certainly push the night in Rudd’s favor.
But don’t discount Simon Cowell’s most successful pet project. The boys were the stealth stars of Rudd’s promos earlier this week, and they too have SNL experience. Last time they were on the show, they even threw on history’s worst wigs and fake mustaches to play a quintet of visitors to the Manuel Ortiz Show:
The Following premiere may have been scooched to Jan. 27, but the good news? More time to catch up!

More than 18 million people tuned in to listen to the sound of Carrie Underwood and a new group of Von Trapp Family singers Thursday night during NBC’s The Sound of Music Live! But what did the actors who played the Von Trapp children in the 1965 film version think? EW talked with four of the seven to see if it became one of their favorite things or if they wanted to say so long, farewell to the live theatrical adaptation.

'Vampire Diaries' actress Candice Accola stars in The Fray's 'Love Don't Die' video, kisses fiance Joe King -- VIDEO
If John Legend’s “All of Me” music video proved anything, it’s that having a significant other in the business is both incredibly convenient and incredibly amazing. Suddenly, music videos become much easier to cast, not to mention the fact that fans eat it up when real-life couples get all romantic on screen.
And speaking of eating something up, I’m a little obsessed with Candice Accola’s appearance in The Fray’s “Love Don’t Die” music video. As much as I love the Vampire Diaries actress on her own, the fact that she is engaged to The Fray’s guitarist, Joe King, only sweetens the deal.
The video places the band in a biker bar, singing from behind a fence for their protection. But when a man is less-than-nice to Ms. Accola, her real-life fiance comes to the rescue and starts quite the bar brawl. She then does what any woman would do: She kisses the heck out of him. The moment is equal amounts fun and voyeuristic.

'Grey's Anatomy's' Meredith Grey vs. 'Scandal's' Olivia Pope: Battle of Shondaland's worst parents -- POLL
Welcome to Shondaland, the world of strong female characters, complicated love stories, and absolutely horrible parents. It’s a world in which being the leading lady means a few things are certain: You will have an epic love, you will be excellent at your job, and you will have atrocious parents who will cause you tremendous amounts of pain. Take Grey’s Anatomy‘s Meredith Grey and Scandal‘s Olivia Pope, for example. Mer has McDreamy; Olivia has Fitz. Mer is a respected surgeon; Olivia is the best “fixer” around. Mer’s parents are/were awful; Olivia’s parents are/were awful.
And after Thursday night’s Scandal, in which we learned the truth about Olivia’s mom, I couldn’t help but ask myself: Whose parents are worse? Meredith’s or Olivia’s? Let’s break it down.
