“Saturday Night Live” To Air Second “Women Of SNL” On November 1

After a successful ladyflower extravaganza hosted by Betty White last spring, on Monday, November 1, “Saturday Night Live” will air yet another ode to the vag. The “Women of SNL” special will blend both new and old, mixing classic clips with new material from Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph and others. Yay … I think? I would watch two hours of these ladies clipping their toenails. (Call me, Tina.) But at some point, “SNL” should not need these specials. The show should just have lots of funny women comics and writers all the time. Hire a funny black lady so damn Kenan Thompson doesn’t keep having to wear a dress and lipstick, you hear?

Tina Fey Is A Proud Member Of The Drunk Moms Club

According to Tina Fey, Emmy losers have more fun. On “The Jimmy Fallon Show,” she recounted her wild, post-Emmy party night out with the other drunk moms, like Amy Poehler. The highlight of the night was when she yelled, “This is what it looks like when New York gets drunk!” to the paparazzi. I think I would have kids just so I could join the drunk moms club with Tina and Amy. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Are Amy Poehler And Andy Samberg’s New “SNL” Promos Excellent?


This weekend, Amy Poehler is hosting the season premiere of “Saturday Night Live” while Katy Perry will be shaking off the bachelorette hangover as the musical guest. NBC has released the first promos for the episode, featuring Amy along with Andy Samberg. What, was Seth Meyers too busy for a “Weekend Update” reunion? Mostly, Amy and Andy channel “Wayne’s World,” but they also spend a few seconds mocking Ben Affleck, Blake Lively, and “The Town.” Is it just me, or are these spots kinda random? And, uh, not that funny? Also, when did Andy get glasses? [EW] Keep reading »

Amy Poehler And Parker Posey Do Wilson Phillips Right

I Wish “Smart Girls At The Party” Had Been Around When I Was A Kid


How did I miss the memo about Amy Poehler’s awesome web series “Smart Girls at the Party”? Already in its second season, the concept is that Poehler and her co-hosts, Amy Miles and Meredith Walker, interview young girls who are “changing the world by being themselves.” Keep reading »

Quotable: Amy Poehler and Rachel Dratch Explain Men Who’ve Got “Gray Balls”

Amy Poehler: Can I ask you how you feel about this term “cougar”? I hate that f***ing word.

Rachel Dratch: Me, too! Since the dawn of moving-making, there have been so many scenarios where an older guy is with a younger woman and we don’t bat an eye. But if it’s reversed and a 40-year-old woman is with a 35-year-old guy, she’s called a “cougar.”

Poehler: I know … there are these derogatory boxes that people have invented that they have to put themselves in. And why isn’t there a word for the inappropriate older guy with the younger girl? What is the exact word for that?

Dratch: I don’t know … Gray Balls?

Poehler: Old Gray Balls! Oh he’s a real Gray Balls! (laugh) Maybe we should make it Clark Gray-Balls. There is just something about a 20-year-old calling someone a cougar that makes me want to punch them in the mouth.

Today’s Comediennes Are No Joke

On Monday night, at the Glamour “Women of the Year” awards, Amy Poehler told the girls of America, “If boys say something that’s not funny, you don’t have to laugh.” Sure, it was said with humor and naturally she got a laugh from the crowd, but her advice really hit me. As women, we are taught to be polite, to laugh at men and their jokes, and to sacrifice and compromise ourselves for the sake of their egos. That’s why Amy’s comment was profound—its meaning was multi-layered. Not only was she encouraging us to honor ourselves but she was also urging us to find something that makes us laugh—to make our own comedy. And that’s exactly what she’s been doing since she made the transition from “SNL” to a show conceptualized, written, produced, and acted by her—“Parks and Recreation.” If you haven’t seen it yet, you should.

Amy Poehler Does Her Best Paula Abdul

Amy Poehler visits “Inside the Actor’s Studio” tonight at 7 p.m. On the show, James Lipton gets Amy to do her Paula Abdul impression. Her imitation of the ex-”American Idol” judge is exactly like Paula’s real-life wacky and nonsensical way of talking, and we’re pretty sure there weren’t any muscle relaxers involved. Check it out in the above video, starting about one minute in. Keep reading »
