The always-welcome weirdness of Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s IFC ‘Portlandia’ will return in 2015 for its fifth season (might it be the last?) on January 8, and this season might be the biggest yet. The first full trailer for ‘Portlandia’ season 5 has eco-biked its way down the hill, bringing an “epic” tone and more guest stars than we can rightly shake an organic celery stalk at.

Will Ferrell's 'Elf' has long become a Christmas classic in its own right, but while NBC busies itself with live-action musicals of 'Peter Pan,' Buddy will have his own song to sing with a brand-new animated musical special 'Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas.' 'The Big Bang Theory''s Jim Parsons will lend his voice to the title role, but who else will be heard when NBC sings loud for all the world to hear?

There are a lot of intriguing things going on in '7 Days in Hell,' an original movie being produced for HBO. First of all, it's a sports comedy. Secondly, it's a mockumentary. Third, it's going to star the completely untested comedy duo of 'SNL' alum Andy Samberg and ... 'Game of Thrones' star Kit Harington?!

On last night's inaugural 'The Maya Rudolph Show,' host Maya Rudolph unveiled The Garmyns, an all-American family made wealthy and happy by the voice skills of both Mama and Papa Garmyn (Rudolph and Fred Armisen). They've certainly earned their GPS wealth, but it sure seems as if they've taken their work home -- no, really. What happens when the Garmyns meet their future son-in-law (Andy Samberg)? Just a lot of recalculating.

'SNL' Scorecard: Andy Samberg Brings Back The Old Gang For The Season Finale

The truth is, I don’t particularly enjoy reviewing ‘Saturday Night Live’ – something I’ve done now for four full seasons at three different outlets. Now, I’ve loved the show for my entire life and I love writing about the show, but it’s not easy to be critical of what these people do every week because it really is remarkable what they can pull off in less than one week on live television. (I’ve attended ‘SNL’ twice: Once in 2009 and then again for dress rehearsal last night. Watching the organized chaos that unfolds in person is almost overwhelming.)
The 2013-2014 season is now over and, no, it won’t go down in history as one of the better seasons in ‘SNL’ history. The show has lost too many stars over the past couple of years to recover that quickly, but they will recover. They always do. ‘SNL’ has always leaned heavily on recurring sketches, but what’s weird is how many recurring sketches are in rotation right now that not that many people love. When you think back, there’s always been a ‘Church Lady’ or ‘Wayne’s World’ or ‘Cheerleaders’ or ‘Stefon’ – but now, they don’t have that, and without that it’s been hard to sustain an identity.

Over the years, 'SNL' nixed its fair share of sketches from their late-night installments -- for one, take a look at this bizarre sketch from Andrew Garfield's latest hosting run -- but now they're getting a second chance to see the light of day. Seth Meyers, who served as 'SNL' head writer for nearly 10 years, is determined to resurrect some never-aired favorites for his new audience on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers.'

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?
