Seth MacFarlane says he'll never host the Oscars again -- so who should step up next year? POLL

Looking for another bad-on-purpose-but-even-so-we’re-going-to-sing-it-for-three-minutes song about boobs at next year’s Academy Awards? Sorry, Charlie — Seth MacFarlane isn’t interested in a repeat hosting performance:

MacFarlane’s decision to follow Ricky Gervais’s awards show lead must be disappointing for the 46 percent of EW readers who think the Family Guy creator did a great job on Sunday — not to mention ABC, which must be pleased with the show’s high ratings (40.3 million viewers, up 3 percent from last year, with an 11 percent increase in adults 18-49). It also means that next year’s hosting field is wide open — though that said, there are a few frontrunners for the gig.


'Parks and Recreation': Leslie and Ben forever!

“I promised myself I was not going to cry tonight, and I have already broken that promise five times,” says Chris to Ben in this wedding episode. I have to say, five times sounds about right.  Also, if “Ben and Leslie” doesn’t prove that Amy Poehler deserves her Emmy, I don’t know what the Emmy voters need. Leslie was hilarious (that Tim Gunn impression), lovable (a 70-page first draft on her vows), and amazingly caring (refusing to have her wedding without Ron, who is like a father to her).

Super Bowl 2013: Best and Worst Commercials


My overwhelming thought following tonight’s rippling terrain of pricey Super Bowl commercials was that Doritos missed a great cross-promotional opportunity by not joining forces with Calvin Klein. There’s always next year. Below, zip through a bunch of 2013′s most memorable — best AND worst! — Super Bowl ads. READ FULL STORY

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's best Golden Globes jokes -- Read them here!


Ricky Gervais may be the one that got all the feigned gasps with his celebrity-ribbing monologues the past couple years, but gal pals and partners in prime-time Tina Fey and Amy Poehler had more than a little bite in their Golden Globes opening. Starting off with a guaranteed-to-be-accurate subject—making fun of the assembled celebrities’ inevitable intoxication, saying “You can smell the pills from here”—they then gave a sarcastic nod to their predecessor before moving on down the list of all the famous faces in the crowd just waiting for someone to cut to them. Here are some of the highlights and check back for their jokes throughout the night:

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler: The BFF duo's 11 best onscreen moments

Can anything get in the way of Lincoln‘s momentum? Could Smash possibly upset the Best TV Show — Comedy or Musical category? Who cares! The real reason to watch the Golden Globes this Sunday is to see three glorious hours of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler doing what they do best: Hanging out together and making us laugh.

Ever since meeting in an improv class nearly 20 years ago — back when Tina “had only recently learned that you can pluck your eyebrows” and Amy got $15 dye jobs that made her hair “the color of white lined paper” — Pohler and Fey have enjoyed a best-friendship that’s the envy of non-Tinas and Amys everywhere. (2012′s Night of Too Many Stars even auctioned off the chance to be the pair’s third BFF for the night; the winner, predictably, had an amazing time.) Naturally, the pair frequently work together onscreen — proving that as funny as they are individually, Amy and Tina are better together.

So here’s a chronological list of their greatest clips — starting with one of SNL‘s best commercial parodies: READ FULL STORY

Golden Globe hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on Angelina Jolie, 'Avatar,' photo bombing -- VIDEO

As if we needed further proof that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are the best at everything and should always be talking on our TVs always always. The upcoming hosts of the 70th Annual Golden Globe awards took the time out of their day being witty whilst wearing gorgeous gowns to discuss their impending job, photobombing Harrison Ford, hating everyone, and who they think will win the award for “Best Actress in a mini-musical or major documentary.” (It’s a shocker!)

Beyonce, Jon Hamm, Steve Carell and more release PSA for gun control

On the same day as the NRA’s press conference and a week after the tragic school shooting in Newtown, Conn., celebrities are coming together with a simple message: “Enough.” In a new PSA, Elizabeth Banks, Jason Bateman, Will Ferrell, Selena Gomez, Peter Dinklage, Conan O’Brien, Amy Poehler, Chris Rock, Reese Witherspoon and 44 more lent their voices for a Mayors Against Illegal Guns PSA that speaks about the need for a new plan regarding guns.

“How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more move theaters? How many more house of faith? How many more shopping malls? How many more street corners? Enough. Demand a plan right now,” the PSA declares.

'Parks and Rec': Leslie's 5 Best Lines from 'Pawnee Commons'

Leave it to Eagleton to stir up the crazy in Leslie Knope.

Last night’s episode of Parks and Recreation rekindled the “blood feud” between Pawnee and neighboring Eagleton when an Eagletonian architect offered to design Pawnee’s new park. The guy’s nice as can be and extremely well-qualified, but Leslie’s knee-jerk derision threatens to thwart the whole plan — which happens to be pro bono. The situation further deteriorates when a couple of pranksters from Eagleton make a mockery of Pawnee’s citizens. As you can imagine, Leslie’s vitriol makes for some of the more memorable moments.


EW's Morning Bite: And the best sound bite from last night is...

Submitted by Bk:

“In 1984 a tornado struck Pawnee. When we asked Eagleton for help they claimed they weren’t home. An entire town claimed they weren’t home.”

–Leslie (Amy Poehler) on Parks and Recreation

Check out the rest of your quote submissions from Thursday, Nov. 29 and come back tonight to share your pick for best sound bite!
