Holy hilarity! Thursdays this fall just got funnier. “SNL” alum/comic genius Amy Poehler will return to her comedic anchor seat alongside Seth Meyers for “Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursdays.” My all-time favorite “SNL” skit took a hit when Tina Fey and Amy left the show, but the Thursday night special that began during the presidential election is back. And hopefully, the Poehler-punch will bring it back to its original level of awesomeness. “Weekend Update Thursdays” starts September 17, before the premieres of “Parks and Recreation” and “30 Rock.” If you squint hard enough, you can pretend that Amy and Tina are both behind the anchor’s desk, together again.

Anderson Cooper jumped right into his interview with ex-Bachelorette Jillian Harris on “Regis & Kelly” the other day with the juiciest question: “How many guys did you actually sleep with?” While Jillian, Kelly, and the audience gasp, Jillian’s beau, Ed, just sits there laughing … cause he probably wants to know, too. Though Anderson wasn’t the one who was giving oily massages and making out in hot tubs on national TV, I think it’s safe to say he wouldn’t be too thrilled if someone asked him about his sex life on air.

- “Entourage” star Jeremy Piven sat down for an interview with CNN and mentioned that he is “no longer a sucker” and has “some great ideas” for a movie about the hit HBO show. [CNN] – I bet you do, Jeremy! And I have some great ideas for our life together!
- A viral video featuring a wedding party dancing down the aisle to “Forever” has boosted sales of Chris Brown’s song by 47,000 in one week. [Just Jared] – I would say “congrats,” but Chris doesn’t deserve it.
- Ali Larter and fiance Hayes MacArthur will reportedly marry at a family property in Maine this Saturday. [Starpulse] – Best wishes to the lovely couple!
Last night, I found myself watching “The Real World: Cancun,” which has failed to entertain ever since I realized it only made me feel sad about having missed the bisexuality boat. (Also, do you need to have a weird name, like Bronne or Jonna, to get cast on this show now?) So, you know how every season since Miami, the cast has had to do some sort of “job”? In the past, they’ve worked for a radio station, run a spray tanning salon, worked for Outward Bound, and were employed by South by Southwest. Aside from the spray tanning nonsense, they’ve all been pretty cool gigs, especially when you consider the career potential and mental aptitude of most of the cast members. This season, however, the job actually matches the job skills, but not in a, uh, positive way. Keep reading »
DJ AM, who you may remember as the other survivor in a plane crash along with Travis Barker, has a new show set to debut on MTV. The plane crash wasn’t the first time DJ AM, aka Adam Goldstein, defied death. Eleven years ago, he was a crack addict who attempted suicide, but fortunately the gun got jammed. Since he’s been so lucky to escape death twice, he’s looking to help other people with addictions. His show, “Gone Too Far,” will help the loved ones of addicts rescue their friends and family from the reaches of death. This show sounds familiar. Wait a second… Isn’t that the same plot as A&E’s “Intervention”? Indeed, it is! While I’m not shocked that MTV is completely copying another network’s successful show, it’s so not. In fact, recycled premises happen all of the time. More after the jump. [LA Times Blog]

Some people say they’re sick of all the shows about housewives, trophy wives, and other kept women. Well, now they can see how the other side — the househusband — lives. Fox Reality’s “Househusbands of Hollywood” focuses on men who run their households while their bread-winning Hollywood wives bring home the bacon. This is how Fox defines a househusband: “King of the castle…ruler of the roost…until his wife comes home from work.” Two of the better known husbands are Darryl M. Bell, who played Ron Johnson on “A Different World” and is married to Tempestt Bledsoe (Vanessa Huxtable of “The Cosby Show“), and former L.A. Dodgers baseball player Billy Ashley, whose wife is a successful Hollywood makeup artist. Charlie Mattera, another hubby featured, co-created the series with his wife, a prominent psychologist. The others are Marine sniper Grant Reynolds, married to Fox 11 morning news show host Jillian Reynolds, and Danny Barclay, an aspiring actor hitched to a high-powered L.A. lawyer. “Househusbands of Hollywood” premieres Aug. 15.

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” will be back tomorrow night, y’all, and we, meaning Amelia and I, can’t wait. This season, all five of the women, including newcomer Kandi Burruss, get in on the dramz. I’m talking hair-pulling, name-calling, home-foreclosing draaaama. After the jump, I speculate on what will happen in season two based on watching the preview videos a bazillion times. Keep reading »
I’m not going to lie. I was pretty excited about last night’s premiere episode of “More to Love.” At 6’1″, I’m a big girl no matter how much I weigh. Here was a show dedicated to the plight of all of us larger-sized folk wandering the earth, looking for someone who will say the magic words: “You are big, and that is awesome.”
The premise of “More to Love” is simple. It’s like “The Bachelor,” only people have taken to calling it “The Fatchelor,” because this time around, the dude looking for love is 26-year-old, 6’3″, 330-pound Luke Conley. And he’s not looking for a skinny bitch. He’s looking for a woman who’s “curvy.” Keep reading »
