Charlize Theron's big return to the 'SNL' stage this past weekend mostly missed the mark, save for a few bizarre-enough-to-be-funny sketches, but this Saturday's season finale already has a few Golden Globes in its pocket. 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' star Andy Samberg will make a long-awaited return to his 'SNL' roots to close out the season, and the first promo already feels like home.
We'd already known that 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' star Andrew Garfield would make his 'SNL' hosting debut in early May, but the final hosts of the season web up much more excitement. Not only will Charlize Theron return for her second time on the 'SNL' stage, but distinguished alum and 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' host Andy Samberg will return to make his hosting debut for the finale!
Stephen Colbert might have dominated the late-night landscape with the announcement of his succession to 'Late Show' host David Letterman, but NBC has stolen back a bit of thunder with help from 'SNL' veteran Maya Rudolph. The network has officially scheduled 'The Maya Rudolph Show' variety special for a late May premiere, with guests such as 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' star Andy Samberg, Kristen Bell and more, but what are the chances of an ongoing series?
FOX fans, your time is at hand! While some renewals are more surprising than others, FOX has officially granted a second season to Andy Samberg's Golden Globe-winning 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' along with thirds for Kevin Bacon serial killer drama 'The Following' and Mindy Kaling's critically-adored 'The Mindy Project,' and a fourth season for Zooey Deschanel's ever-quirky 'New Girl.'
Now that's more like it! A short while after 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' star Andy Samberg took home the 2014 Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series, Comedy, the show has done even better to upset the competition in winning the Best TV Series, Comedy award!
Talk about an upset! We knew 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' to be among the better freshman offerings from the most recent TV season, but 'SNL' alum Andy Samberg set that in stone by winning Best Actor in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical at the 2014 Golden Globes!
Adam Sandler's film career may not bring the excitement it once did, but when the iconic funnyman comes to TV, he's got our attention. Fresh off its Golden Globes 2014 nomination, 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' has tapped Sandler to partner up with Andy Samberg for its post-Superbowl episode, but as whom?
We're not sure what it was about today that had the major networks promoting and canceling series left and right, but following CBS' full season orders, NBC's cancellation and 'Community' spree, FOX has given a full-season order to the Andy Samberg-starring cop comedy 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' as well as the coveted Super Bowl slot.
Fall TV 2013 has largely gotten into full swing on the broadcast end, and where FOX's 'Sleepy Hollow' became the first out of the gate to earn a surprise renewal, it seems ABC's 'Lucky 7' has the distinct honor of becoming fall 2013's first network cancellation. Meanwhile, FOX's Andy Samberg-centered 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' may end up the second series up for renewal, so how's the race going?
Among the many new pilots to debut this fall, 'SNL' vet Andy Samberg's 'Parks and Recreation'-style cop comedy 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' has attracted the most comedy heat by far.
