Wednesday night was all about the ’80s and with the save no longer in play, we knew somebody was absolutely going to be sent home tonight on American Idol. The judges were all kinds of crazy during their critiques, but good thing season 7 champ David Cook had solid advice as the mentor for the top 8.
WARNING! Don’t read any more if you don’t want to be spoiled by tonight’s results! READ FULL STORY
[SPOILER ALERT: Do not read this story until you've watched tonight's episode of Parks and Recreation, "Flu Season 2."]
Leslie Knope has done it all — get Pawnee’s parks in ship shape, get a job on the City Council, get recalled, get two hours of waffles, and get married. Perhaps the only thing she hasn’t done is get pregnant. But that all changed Thursday night with “Flu Season 2,” a rather delightful episode of Parks and Recreation that revealed early on that Leslie was vomiting not from a virus, but because she is with child — and ended with her breaking the big news to Ben. This twist comes at an unexpected if inconvenient time, as she is weighing whether to accept a job in Chicago with the National Parks Service. And if that weren’t enough, she is also trying to pull off the Unity Concert, which was having some booking problems: Chipp McCapp (Bo Burnham!), you are a bad man and a bad son; Scott Tanner (Jeff Tweedy!!), won’t you save the day and reunite Land Ho? Watch as Leslie tells Ben her big news below: READ FULL STORY
Watch out, Cap’n Crunch Buffalo chicken tenders — there’s a new stoner snack in town.
That’s right: The chicken strips pictured above are dredged in flour, dipped in an egg wash, then shaken in a plastic bag with a mixture of parsley, salt, pepper, panko breadcrumbs… and, oh yeah, 15 cookies’ worth of Oreo wafers. (The vanilla kind. You know, because using the chocolate kind would be gross.) READ FULL STORY
Caveat: There’s no guarantee that Comedy Central will program another topical nightly talk show in The Colbert Report‘s place when Stephen Colbert leaves to take over CBS’s Late Show in 2015.
After all, Colbert isn’t just another late night gabfest — it’s a parody of a very specific type of news program, starring a character who’s a very specific caricature of folks like Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh. (Limbaugh, naturally, has already spoken out against Colbert’s move to CBS, saying that the network has “declared war on the heartland of America.”) It would be strange and sad to see Comedy Central try to capture similar lightning in a similar bottle by ordering another show that parodies cable news the same way Colbert did.
That said, I can’t see the network scrambling to find a whole week’s worth of new programming for the 11:30 timeslot — and if it’s going to go with another nightly program, some sort of talk show revolving around some sort of central comedic figure would make the most sense. So, with that in mind, here are eight options for Colbert replacements — both realistic and more pie-in-the-sky.
Last week, EW exclusively debuted the first in a series of new art from Marvel and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Art of Level Seven.” Each week, as we move towards the show’s May season finale, Marvel is releasing a different piece, which will tie in directly with the events of that week’s upcoming episode.
EW is proud to help Marvel introduce the art in advance of episode 18, “Providence,” which will air next Tuesday, April 15 at 9 p.m. ET. (Note that due to a scheduling change, ABC will air 2 hours of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with a repeat of “Turn, Turn, Turn” at 8 and the new episode airing at 9.) The piece, which details the big events of this past week’s outing and teases both the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the appearance of Hydra, was crafted by Paolo Rivera, who has designed multiple posters for Marvel Studios as well as Eisner-award winning comics.
EW again spoke with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jeff Bell about this week’s concept, and how it ties in to Tuesday’s episode.
When the incomparable Stevie Nicks made an appearance on The Tonight Show Wednesday, playing one or two of her hits just wasn’t going to be enough for Jimmy Fallon. The musically-inclined host planned something much more memorable — re-creating the music video for “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” Nicks’s 1981 duet with Tom Petty.
Fallon assumes Petty’s role — shaggy blond wig, floral shirt, and all — while Nicks proves she’s still got it, not to mention a sense of humor. Here’s Fallon’s version:
Watch your back, Jimmy Fallon: One of your former Saturday Night Live co-stars is gunning for David Letterman’s job.
Tracy Morgan stopped by the Today show Thursday morning, where he told Matt Lauer he’s launching a new campaign: To become CBS’s next late night host. “Jimmy Fallon needs some competition,” he explained. Hold up, everyone. Let’s not dismiss this too quickly — Morgan’s show sounds amazing.
The band: “It would be different every night. It might be Drake one night, it might be Sly and the Family Stone [the next].”
Ellen DeGeneres may be a hilarious host for daytime TV and the Oscars — but late night? Maybe not so much.
Since David Letterman announced that he’s retiring in 2015, speculation has swirled about who might replace him on the Late Show — and Ellen’s name has always been near the top of the list. So in Thursday’s episode of Ellen, DeGeneres addresses the rumors by giving us a taste of what her late night monologues might be like. (She also kind of shut down the idea that she might take over for Dave: “I am flattered, but I really love doing my daytime show,” DeGeneres said, “But I feel like you don’t really know if you’re good until you try it.”)
