Sunday marks the return of HBO’s The Newsroom, a series that isn’t exactly known for being subtle—especially in its first season, which featured a memorable scene set to Coldplay’s “Fix You.”

Matthew McConaughey seems like the right celebrity to enlist to toss around a football, and that’s just what Jimmy Fallon did on the Tonight Show. Only their game of “Facebreakers,” named because they are aiming at panes of glass adorned with each other’s faces, was pretty competitive. Though McConaughey starts out strong, soon it’s Fallon’s to lose, and by the end, who’s keeping count anyway.
But the true joy of this is watching McConaughey talk to himself before a throw: “Got to settle down, McConaughey; hang on one second, babe.” Later McConaughey makes some Wolf of Wall Street-esque noises. Watch the video below. READ FULL STORY
For this year’s annual reunions issue, Entertainment Weekly spoke with all five surviving members of Monty Python about their Eric Idle-directed shows last summer at London’s massive O2 arena, the legendary comedy team’s first live performances in more than three decades. In the hope of provoking some of the semi-friendly badinage for which they are famous, we also asked the quintet—Idle, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin, and Terry Jones—which other Python member irritated them most in the course of rehearsing and performing Monty Python Live (mostly) One Down Five To Go. You can read the troupe’s answers below.
November’s just begun, but there may already be a winner for best holiday commercial.
Bette Midler and Jimmy Fallon switched lips on The Tonight show for some bawdy gags (obviously), some vocal warm-ups, and a duet. Midler’s facial expressions really sell it. READ FULL STORY
On last night’s New Girl fans were in for a rude awakening. Zooey Deschanel’s sweetly crooned intro, the one with the brightly painted set pieces, had disappeared in place of a series of cast photos. Even more distressing, Deschanel’s “who’s that girl?” vocals were also no longer around, just the slightly amended tune remaining. I, for one, will miss it all. READ FULL STORY
For Cosmo Kramer, Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment was like a personal—and free—grocery store.
Emily Gordon doesn’t fit an easy descriptor: She was a couples counselor for years, but now writes (she has a book in the works), co-hosts the Indoor Kids podcast with her husband, Kumail Nanjiani, and co-produces the immensely popular Meltdown stand-up show in Los Angeles (and its Comedy Central sibling). She has a lot of irons in the fire, which means she and longtime friend Jamie Lee had plenty to talk about in this week’s Polished.
Looking for tokin’ fare that’s a little more sophisticated than How High? Try Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair’s web series High Maintenance, which follows a good-natured, unnamed weed dealer (played by Sinclair) as he travels around New York City, delivering his wares to a diverse clientele. (Previous purchasers have included Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens as a cross-dressing Brooklyn dad and Broad City‘s Hannibal Burress as… a comedian. So maybe not all the roles are a stretch.)
After four short, independently-produced “seasons” of 13 total installments, the series is being funded by Vimeo—as Vimeo on Demand’s inaugural original program—for its next cycle of episodes. Three new shorts debut online Nov. 11, while the second group of three premieres in early 2015, but you can catch a sneak peek at the smokey shenanigans in the exclusive trailer below. Needless to say, it’s a BYOP kind of deal. (The “P” stands for “popcorn,” duh.)
