'New Girl': Jess & Nick's showmance gets Auto-Tuned -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

It’s well-established that She & Him songbird Zooey Deschanel doesn’t need the assistance of Auto-Tune. All due respect to her hilarious New Girl co-stars, but they have certainly reaped the benefits of in this exclusive DJ John Boswell’s pitch-perfected mash-up of season 2 lines.

Just like the series itself, “Kiss Me Like a Man” is at turns hilarious and sexy. It tells the story of roomfriends Jess (Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) but has plenty of laugh-out-loud diversions courtesy of Schmidt (Max Greenfield), Winston (Lamorne Morris), and Cece (Hannah Simone) — not to mention gone-but-not-forgotten characters Trench Coat Nick and Jess as a Kenyan Olympic runner.

Vince Vaughn teaches us how to pick up chicks in 'SNL' promos -- VIDEO

Though it’s been eight years since Wedding Crashers‘s release and 17 since that of Swingers — man, that movie’s almost old enough to vote — Vince Vaughn still knows a thing or two about how to treat chicks, man. Need proof? Here’s the fast-talking comedian schooling Bobby Moynihan and promoting his upcoming stint as host of Saturday Night Live at the same time. It’s pretty frickin’ money.


'New Girl': Two Shivrangs Don't Make a Right

With the exception of Schmidt’s ex-girlfriend, almost nobody got what they wanted tonight, Newbies. I personally could have done with a little bit more Alfredo, but we can’t have it all, can we? That seems to be the overarching message as the season winds down. That and the fact that what we want is not always right for us. This notion came starkly into play as Cece continued to force a marriage to Shivrang — a man whose name she doesn’t even know how to pronounce. Indeed, Cece’s butchering of her fiancé’s name was just one of the things that went wrong during a surprise bachelorette party thrown by Jess. Others included the dissemination of a picture of Nick’s penis, Winston’s overzealous attitude toward a kidnapping scheme, and Schmidt’s spitefully foolhardy attempt to make Cece jealous by lining up a date to Cece’s wedding. So let’s begin, shall we? READ FULL STORY

'New Girl': It's a Date?

So it wasn’t exactly an ends-in-fireworks first date, was it Newbies? But were you really expecting that? Tonight’s episode of New Girl had a lot to say, not just about Jess and Nick’s relationship, but about the relationships of all the loftmates. It’s a fragile ecosystem — one that can be thrown off-kilter by a lusty gaze or a missing phone charger… which is exactly where the episode began. (For those who haven’t seen the episode yet, read no further: SPOILERS AHEAD!) READ FULL STORY

Melissa McCarthy's 'SNL' future is so bright, she has to wear shades -- VIDEO

After the season high that was Justin Timberlake’s March 9 episode — and yet another hiatus — Saturday Night Live is finally back this week with a new episode hosted by Melissa McCarthy. Judging by this promo, we can expect dry humor, absurdity, and perhaps a little bit of pouting from forgotten birthday girl boy Taran Killam. (No joke — he really did turn 31 on April 1.) All that’s missing is a giant vat of ranch dressing:


Taye Diggs is both the world's most charming man and its worst rapper -- VIDEO

“He gave Stella her groove back. He broke hearts — and fixed them — on ABC’s Private Practice. He’s done it all: film, television, theater. But in his next act, an unlikely partnership with underground rap sensation DeStorm Power would change an entire genre of music… forever.”

So begins this Behind the Music-esque video from ABC.comedy, which dramatizes Taye Diggs’s fake attempt to become a hip-hop icon. The twist: Though Diggs seems like one of those guys who’s just naturally great at everything, he’s actually the worst rapper this side of MC Skat Kat. But hey — what would you expect from a guy who thinks George Gershwin invented the genre?


Norm Macdonald talks new video podcast, shares excellent advice: 'The best defense is an insane offense' - EXCLUSIVE

Comedy junkies, you may have just received your greatest gift. On Monday night, Norm Macdonald launched Norm Macdonald Live, a video podcast delivered via the Video Podcast Network that will run live every Monday night. The show will feature MacDonald, sidekick Adam Eget, and will revolve around a new guest each week.

The show’s premiere welcomed actor Bob Einstein (better known as Super Dave Osborne and Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Marty Funkhouser), and was a ridiculously great hour that set a fine template for the program moving forward. “My wishlist is not anyone else’s wishlist,” Macdonald tells EW shortly after the first show premiered. “I’m damn near 50. So the guys I like, they’re mostly dead. Everybody wants young people, which I think is a mistake. The best guys to talk to in these situations are old guys, because they ain’t working, and they’ve got nothing to lose. They’ll tell you stories, you know? Everybody else, you ask a question and they don’t know if they should talk about it. So my wishlist are the old guys, the old failures. Just having some old guy saying Cary Grant was a d— would be great. Plus, a lot of these younger people have been podcasted to death, and I also don’t know any of them. I wouldn’t know what questions to ask. I wouldn’t know what to ask the fourth lead on The Mindy Project.

Macdonald says that he hopes to book an eclectic variety of future guests, including Mike Tyson, Billy Bob Thornton, Russell Brand, and Bob Saget. Einstein’s storytelling drove the first episode, which featured a great tale about working with Redd Foxx and some thoughts on Curb. Check it out below.


'New Girl': Walt Miller... amirite?

It’s official: Jess is a goner. Last week, Nick’s sudden embrace of responsibility led to a sudden embrace between Jess and him. This week, the unexpected death of Nick’s father Walt proved Nick is not only responsible but endearingly vulnerable and emotionally deep in way we’ve thus far only suspected. There’s no way Jess will not find him irresistible. I fear this story between the roomfriends can only end in heartbreak, despite the fact their friendship finally overcame the awkward, post-kiss phase and grew in strength. Where and when things will go pear-shaped… the jury’s still out on that, but, if this is the kind of episode they can write when they’re not kissing, how wonderful will the relationship payoff be? Can’t. Wait.
