Star Promises This Halloween Costume Will Get You Lots Of Play

October 31st, 2011 11:41am EDT
Reno 911
So what sexy Halloween costume will get you the most action? Is it Superman with skin tight spandex? Is it a gladiator from 300 with six pack abs? You may be surprised, but it’s Lt. Dangle from the TV comedy Reno 911. Thomas Lennon, the real actor who played Dangle, has proof that his costume is the best for Halloween groping.

“Here’s the thing about the Lt. Dangle outfit,” Lennon said. “It’s the best Halloween costume ever because everybody wants to fiddle with you when you’re in it. It literally is like a welcome mat to your butt saying ‘Come play with me.’”

A lot of people make their...

Summer Movie Awards Part 2: Best Film, Worst Title & More

September 10th, 2009 10:00am EDT
Bruno
The summer movie season is finally at its end. Yesterday we listed Part 1 of the first annual "Summer Movie Awards" in categories such as: surprise hit, the bomb nobody noticed, indie hit, and most disappointing. Check out more films that deserve to be recognized for their summer performances:

The Death by Twitter Award

Winner: "Bruno"

This movie made more than 20 percent of its gross in the first night. After that evening, the Twiterrati hit their little squawk box to spread the word that there was far too much spreading of limbs in this bit of borderline pornography. The resul...

'Reno 911!' Co-Creator Announces Cancellation On Twitter

August 14th, 2009 10:51am EDT
Reno 911!
Thomas Lennon, co-creator of the Comedy Central live-action show Reno 911!, has announced via Twitter that the show won't be returning for a seventh season.

The message reads: "Reno 911! was cancelled at 1:30 pm today. Won't be wearing the shorts again."

The show was a mockumentary-style parody of "COPS" and other law enforcement shows, featuring improvised dialog and the entire cast of "The State" in reoccurring or cameo roles. The sixth season's cast was radically changed, with Carlos Alazraqui, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and Mary Birdsong leaving the show.

In season six, two new cops join the Reno 911! squad: Sergeant Jack Declan (Ian Roberts) the macho, by-the-book cop's cop and Deputy Franky Rizzo (Joe Lo Truglio), a big city cop and the opposite of Declan who not only doesn't play by the rules, he hasn't even read the rules.

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

May 18th, 2009 9:25am EDT
Terminator Salvation
The first three weeks of the summer movie season started out a bit slow, but from here the momentum really starts to build. There's a spike in the number of movies premiering with six coming out this week, two of which are sequels. One of those sequels is a movie I've been anticipating since I heard it was in development. Hint: it involves giant robots, and it's not "Transformers 2."

Opening in cinemas this week are "Terminator Salvation," "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian," "Dance Flick," "Easy Virtue," "The Girlfriend Experience," and "The Boys: The Sherman Brothers...

What To Watch In March? Spotlight On Mid-Season Shows

March 4th, 2009 9:37am EST
Cupid
Once upon a time in a magical land called Hollywood, harried and somewhat unkempt writers bit their nails down to the quick awaiting news on if their pilots would receive full season orders, be given solid "Nos," or worse: be relegated to the limbo that is "mid-season replacement" territory.

Such shows aren't guaranteed to air at all, particularly if the initial fall line-up (the shows that network executives felt had the most potential) succeeds. And if mid-season shows do get a shot after premature cancellations, there is no guarantee they will find an audience, considering so many ...

Finding The Right Halloween Costume And Ones To Avoid

October 13th, 2008 10:00am EDT
The Dark Knight
Picking the right Halloween costume can get tricky, especially when you're over the age of twelve. One thing that you need to be aware of in your selection is that there's a fine line

between having a good Halloween costume and making an ass of yourself. The same basic childhood rules still apply today: wear nothing that heavily restricts movement or vision, wear nothing that will burst into flames, and a homemade costume always trumps something store bought. Once you get the right idea, putting together a costume is easy. It's getting the idea that's the hard part. As Halloween sweeps i...

A Look At The Evolution Of The Web Series

September 10th, 2008 11:46am EDT
Chelsea Handler
It's pretty apparent that the emergence of original programming on the internet, debuting at only minute-and-a-half to three minute clips, was geared directly at the teenage set-- playing into the whole shortening attention span and need to get their entertainment from the same rectangular box that they get the research for their term papers and with which they network and communicate with friends. Web series, as they were deemed, didn't officially become an official part of new media until they began to gain widespread popularity with lonelygirl15, a video blog from a so-called teenage gir...

Summer TV Preview: Forget the Beach, Cable Is The Place To Be

May 30th, 2008 8:30am EDT
Law and Order CI
While the cable networks still lag far behind the broadcast networks in the ratings department (well, four of them anyway), they have made great strides in terms of matching, and often times exceeding, the big dogs when it comes to quality original programming.

At no time of the year is this trend more evident than in the summer. While the broadcast networks are unsurprisingly going with a bevy of unscripted fare (including entirely too many reality competition shows), the cable networks are once again proving to be the place to turn for quality, original, SCRIPTED programming.

Three Best & Worst TV Shows Turned Into Big-Screen Films

May 28th, 2008 8:38am EDT
The Dukes of Hazzard
With so many long-running series coming to an end lately, it hasn't taken long for message boards and fansites to buzz with ideas for big-screen reunions. There are a ton of television shows already green lit and in various stages of development (The A-Team, Dallas, and I Dream of Jeannie to name a few). It doesn't seem too farfetched to assume even more producers are awaiting the opening numbers from this Friday's release of Sex and the City: The Movie before they offer a firm stance one way or the other.

If it's a hit, even four years after the show went off the air, the wheels will...

There May Be Cracks, But The Comedy Glass Ceiling Still Exists For Women

March 14th, 2008 3:00pm EDT
Parker Posey
In this town (Los Angeles) and this industry (entertainment), there are a handful of strong, intelligent, funny women who - once they finally broke onto the radar - have worked consistently in equally strong, intelligent, funny roles.

After reading this month's "Who Says Women Aren't Funny" issue of Vanity Fair, it is impossible not to notice just how many beyond the current "it" girls of comedy were left off that list (which included funnygirls such as Tina Fey, Sarah Silverman and Amy Poehler). This is an attempt to rectify that and garner them the recognition they so rightly dese...

Ten Things You Need To Know About 'The Ten'; Opening August 3

Ten Things You Need To Know About The Ten (The Gospel According to Director David Wain):

1) The Ten Commandments have been a cornerstone of our society for nearly one hundred years. Whether it's taking a Sunday off, or not murdering someone, many of us follow the Ten Commandments every day, without even knowing it. The pervasiveness of these simple directives inspired me and Ken Marino to spin the tales that make up The Ten.

2) In early June 2007, we began our exhaustive research. After ninety long seconds on Google, we'd learned not only what The Ten Commandments were, but wha...

Reno 911!: Miami
Reno 911!....Beginnings:

"Reno 911!" co-stars-writers-executive producers Robert Ben Garant, Thomas Lennon, and Kerri Kenney-Silver first met in college, where they created a comedy troupe they called The State. According to Garant, who also directs Reno 911!: Miami, it was not an obvious match. "Kerri was very Westport, Tom wore suits, cowboy boots and an eye patch – and I was scared of both of them. Somehow, we all ended up in a comedy troupe, and for some reason we all took it really seriously."

In the mid-1990s, the trio created a popular sketch comedy series, named for their tro...
