Conan O'Brien's MTV Movie Awards hair ritual is straight out of 'American Hustle' -- VIDEO

Conan O’Brien’s hair might’ve looked like it was prepared by a team of professionals for the MTV Movie Awards — but don’t let its extra bounce fool you. Conan prepared that hairdo himself, with the use of a hot glue gun, some tape, and a microwave, among other not-very-safe things. Apparently, his real hair looks a lot like Christian Bale’s did in American Hustle…and we’ve got proof.

On Monday night’s edition of Conan, O’Brien gave his audience a sneak peek into his dressing room just before the Awards. Who knew a microwave was good for things other than heating up hot pockets?

'Saturday Night Live' recap: Seth Rogen gets an evening of predictable jokes

The Seth-Rogen-likes-weed jokes will never get old, apparently. And Seth Rogen knows it.

In the third-time host’s monologue, Rogen read from a journal documenting his time at 30 Rock preparing for Saturday Night Live, including: “Just got pitched about 50 ideas about weed. Unfortunately, we can only do about 10 of them.” The Pineapple Express star milked the line, but this wasn’t the only drug-tinged joke of the night — surprise!

Though it did seem like we were going to escape the episode without an entire sketch dedicated to the munchies, Rogen’s onscreen stoner reputation prevailed. The second-to-last skit starred a spectacularly goofy Kyle Mooney as a weed enthusiast who doesn’t actually smoke pot. Rogen made an appearance in it as a drug dealer, and the two bonded over a weird song. It was all very weird, actually. And not very funny.

Rogen excelled in the non-drug-themed skits, particularly when he played a clumsy husband opposite wife Aidy Bryant, who was stuck with two arm casts and needed his help in everything, from raising a glass at dinner to applying lipstick.

Seth Meyers introduces his own 'Mad Men' parody -- VIDEO

With Mad Men about to start its final season — or at least, the first half of its final season — fans are already worrying about finding a replacement for Don Draper and co. Thanks to Seth Meyers, they might have found that replacement. Well, not really.

Tuesday on Late Night, Meyers introduced a new Mad Men parody: Bad Me. Like the original series, it’s also about a 1960′s advertising firm — but instead of featuring the likes of Don Draper, it features Meyers himself. And if that doesn’t get you hooked, the advertising firm’s first client is Sunkist Grapefruits.

It’ll all make sense when you watch the clip below:

Every 'Scandal' reference made on 'Trophy Wife'

On Tuesday night’s Trophy Wife, Diane (Marcia Gay Harden) found herself channeling Olivia Pope in order to help Kate (Malin Ackerman) deal with a PTA problem.

EW had a sneak peek of the episode earlier this week, but even we couldn’t have predicted all the Scandal goodness peppered throughout the half-hour. So Wednesday morning, we decided to do a breakdown of every single reference.

It’s pretty safe to say the show’s homage to Olivia Pope and Associates was handled perfectly. READ FULL STORY

'Mindy Project' recap: 'I don't know why, but I still want to hit it'

Say it ain’t so, Mindy Project!

Last week’s double header of Mindy was all about secretly kissing one Danny Castellano – complete with a Bridget Jones-worthy ending that made everybody swoon. And last night, things seemed to be moving along right on schedule with our 2014 Mr. Darcy. A happy Mindy announced via voiceover that Danny was sleeping at her place and that dating a co-worker? It kind of ruled.

The opening moments/montage – that featured both Mindy and, once he caught on, Danny coming up with work excuses to bring the other into their office so they could make out — were some of the sweetest and romantic the show has tried. Mindy blissed out with a new guy really is so stinkin’ adorable. Of course, things can go south fast – especially when one person (ahem, Danny) wants to keep a relationship a secret. Have teen dramas (not to mention real life) taught us anything? As Seth Cohen once said to Summer Roberts: “Acknowledge me now or lose me forever.” You know Mindy watched that.  READ FULL STORY

The Roseland Ballroom is closing its doors for good following Gaga’s performance next Monday.
