What’s the point in letting former SNL cast members guest host if you aren’t going to resurrect sketches and characters from back when they were on the show? We saw this a few weeks ago when Tracy Morgan gently poked our nostalgia buttons with the return of Brian Fellows and it happened again last night with the return of Bronx Beat. However, this wasn’t just a showcase for co-guest host Amy Poehler — it also saw the return of the great Maya Rudolph to the SNL stage. And there was no way the evening’s other guest host, Tina Fey, was going to sit out this chance to reunite with her few fellow Studio 8H veterans.

We know, we know. A few weeks out from Halloween, and already Christmas specials are making their presence known.

Granted, it’s May, but when have you ever known Bill Murray to pop up when expected? The revered and eccentric comedian has finally locked down his long-discussed Christmas special with Sofia Coppola sending holiday cheer to Netflix this December with A Very Murray Christmas.
Last year saw IFC assembling a ridiculous collection of stars for the Funny or Die-produced Spoils of Babylon, and already the sequel is shaping up even bigger.

Merciful Zeus, if you thought Eddie Murphy returning to ‘SNL’ after 31 years for the 40th anniversary special on February 15 was big enough, wait until you get a load of the full roster. Rivaling turnout for the Emmys and Oscars combined, the upcoming ‘SNL’ reunion will feature everyone from legendary alumni like Bill Murray, Tina Fey and Chevy Chase, to favorite hosts like Alec Baldwin, and even Taylor Swift, why not!
These days 'SNL' movies are a bit few and far between (come on, 'MacGruber 2'!), but at least some of their success lives on with legendary classics like 'Wayne's World or 'The Blues Brothers.' There have been 11 'SNL' movies total over the course of the last 40 years, but how well do you think you know the late-night sketch comedy legend's cinematic history? Test your knowledge with the latest installment of ‘You Think You Know Movies?‘
Angry Birds continues its world-wide domination, as the first ever 'Angry Birds' movie keeps on truckin' along, but here's a major new development! While last we heard the film would be ready for a 2016 release with some veteran animators at the helm, today brings our first look at these walkin', talkin', pig-hatin' birds as animated characters. Better still, we finally know who's going to be voicing them on the big screen!
At long last, it's time to meet the cast of Disney's first animated Marvel movie, 'Big Hero 6,' and see these new characters come to life in six new images. Where previously we saw some unapproved posters for this new crop of unlikely superheroes (since taken down from the web), the cast is now here in beautiful hi-res and ready to kick some San Fransokyo butt!
