Jimmy Fallon plays Pyramid with Jeff Daniels, Usher, and Nick Jonas

If there are things to be learned from Monday night’s game of Pyramid on the Tonight Show, they include that Jeff Daniels can dance his heart out and that Nick Jonas kind of sucks at knowing gangster movies.

In this round of the classic game, Daniels partnered up with Usher and gained a strong lead thanks to Daniels’ willingness to go all-in on the twerk as Usher guessed various dance moves. It looked like Fallon got a dud of a partner as Jonas failed to recognize seminal gangster movies such as Scarface, Goodfellas, The Usual Suspects, and The Godfather.  READ FULL STORY

This 'Walking Dead' star is finally ready for her own 'Harry Potter' wand

'Mad Men,' 'Homeland,' and other kid-inappropriate shows with 'Sesame Street' parodies

Sesame Street premiered on television 45 years ago today, and has been teaching kids valuable lessons with the help of colorful, funny puppets and likable human guest stars ever since. It’s perfectly appropriate for kids of any age—but some of the material the show parodies isn’t. (Think Mad Men and True Blood)

To celebrate the show’s 45th birthday, here’s a list of spoofs based on the most kid-inappropriate shows Sesame has ever tackled, ranging from political thriller Homeland to motorcycle gang drama Sons of Anarchy. READ FULL STORY

John Oliver shoots salmon at Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman, everyone else in TV

The 'Simpsons'/'Futurama' crossover: Two great tastes that go pretty well together

How I love Futurama! Matt Groening’s other show never had the audience or the acclaim of The Simpsons. It aired sporadically for four seasons, frequently shifting timeslots in an era when “timeslots” were things that people cared about. But eventually people found Futurama: In reruns on adult swim, on DVD when DVDs were things that people cared about. And what they found was a show that was somehow both darker and sillier than its more famous older sibling. The Simpsons is a family show about characters who fundamentally love each other, living in a vividly drawn cartoon city; Futurama is a workplace sitcom about characters who frequently can’t stand each other, living in a multiverse built on flotsam and jetsam from centuries’ worth of far-flung space fantasy.

Jay Leno makes first 'Tonight Show' appearance since retiring

What we learned from ranking every 'Supernatural' episode

Sitting down to rank 200 episodes of a show as beloved as Supernatural was not easy. Coming into it, we had our own ideas about what the best and worst seasons were, and by looking at individual episodes, those ideas, for the most part, were proven to be true. But after refreshing our memories on what happened in any (and every) given hour, we looked at each episode on its own, apart from which season it might have taken place in.

Coming into the ranking, we considered seasons 4 and 5 to be the strongest, and despite the lack of season 4 in the Top 40, we still feel that way. Yes, only four episodes from season 4 made it into our Top 40, but three of them are in our Top 10. And as the numbers reflect, seasons 6 and 7 are, in our opinion, the show’s weakest.
