Fall TV Guide: “Better With You” Looks Like A Better Sitcom

Normally, I am not a sitcom girl. Something about the “set-up, set-up, joke” pacing has never worked for me. Not to mention the fact that 80 percent of sitcom plots are generated by one character not telling another character something and hijinx ensuing, whereas if they just said, “Hey, I broke the lamp,” the whole plot would fall on its face.

It’s about a pair of former CIA agents who’ve married, retired and started a catering company. They are called back into action to find a missing fellow CIA officer—whom the wife used to date.

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 »

David Hasselhoff Sex Bombed Off “Dancing With The Stars”

Last night, David Hasselhoff was the first C-lister voted off “Dancing with the Stars.” What?!?! With those hip thrusts and that jacket toss? Above, see the “Sex Bomb” cha cha that got David eliminated. After hearing that he was out, David said, “It’s been a great ride. I feel bad for Kym because she worked so hard to try and get me where I was going. I’m just so proud that my daughters are here and got to see me go this far.” We’re sure they’re proud, too. Kind of.
