Sarah Silverman
With her hands in her sweater pockets, Sarah Silverman attended the "Machete" premiere in Los Angeles wearing a pleated skirt, skinny tie, and white button-down blouse.

While many stars look sexy in schoolgirl uniforms (see Carrie Underwood on the "Today Show"), Sarah fails miserably.

Her Comedy Central series "The Sarah Silverman Program" was axed this spring after just three seasons on the air.

'The Sarah Silverman Program' Gets The Axe

May 12th, 2010 12:25pm EDT
Sarah Silverman
Sarah Silverman has failed to save her self-titled comedy show from cancellation - TV bosses have reportedly axed the series after three seasons.

The Sarah Silverman Program, which earned the funny woman an Emmy Award nomination last year, was rumored to be faltering in 2009 after a series of budget cuts, but the star's sister Laura, who also appears in the series, pledged to save the show by launching a campaign on Twitter.com.

She wrote, "If you want more Sarah Silverman Program Tweet @ComedyCentral and let them know. It's up to you! Power to the People, Right On."

More Crazy Hijinks On 'The Sarah Silverman Program' Season 3

February 11th, 2010 10:10am EST
Sarah Silverman
Sarah Silverman fought for a third season of her Comedy Central show The Sarah Silverman Program. It was certainly worth the wait, as she has plenty of highbrow social commentary coming up this season.

"I get in trouble for peeing in a mailbox," Silverman explained. "Or what I thought was an old timey e-mail machine, a box for one of those old timey e-mails I think."

To be fair, she did know that whatever it was wasn't a toilet. "Knew it wasn't a toilet, that's true."

That episode also pokes fun at Silverman's penchant for calling people "retarded." "That is the episode where I fin...

How I Met Your Mother
To paraphrase Ned Flanders, apparently an Emmy nomination is easier to get than an acceptance letter from Arizona State.

This morning, Emmy tried to one-up Oscar's new rule of ten by including six nominees in the acting categories and a whopping seven in the series categories. Yes, if you made a television series this year, or appeared on one, chances are you heard your name called in North Hollywood this morning.

With so many nominess, it seems impossible that any deserving performances or series were left out. Right? Sadly, no. And, of course, there are plenty of nominees who sh...

Sarah Silverman Addresses The Nation On Election Day

Sarah Silverman
Sarah Silverman stars as...Sarah Silverman in the The Sarah Silverman Program. Her everyday life--which is just that much more exciting than yours--is played out through scripted scenes, animation, and absurd songs. Without a care in the world, Sarah spends her time with her sister (played by real-life sister Laura Silverman), geeky neighbors who may or may not be gay (Brian Posehn and Steve Agee), and the kindhearted and mustachioed Officer Jay (Jay Johnston). Without caring for anyone but herself, Sarah skates by on her good looks, quick wit and uncompromising immaturity.

Five Most Underrated & Overrated TV Shows At Comic-Con

August 8th, 2008 10:31am EDT
Heroes
Two weeks ago, nerds, geeks, and those "just going to San Diego for the weekend to check out the beaches" poured into Comic-Con 2008 in all their "Babylon 5"-clad glory.

Comic-Con is an ever-evolving beast. It started as a few dozen collectors meeting in a basement in San Diego to trade and discuss comics. Now it is an event so massive it shuts down an entire city for the weekend.

Comic-Con also holds a tremendous amount of power nowadays. Nervous directors unveil scenes from their latest superhero big-screen opus to the attendees, well-aware that a lukewarm response could spe...

Alec Baldwin - 30 Rock
Enough drama, time to laugh! The Emmy nominations are upon us, two days away in fact, so it's time to round out our suggestions to The Academy's blue ribbon panel. In the final installment, the focus turns to comedy and the actors who make us laugh every week.

This category is far more loaded than the drama section with far fewer obvious mistakes on the ballot and a ton of strong performances from the men and the women (rather than watching the ladies struggle with substandard material from their mostly male counterparts. Yes, I will clamor for more female writers and directors every...

True Hollywood BFFs

Penelope Cruz & Salma Hayek
A best friend forever (BFF) is a person whom you know really well and regard with affection and trust. In Hollywood, a best friend is often a famous pal whom you party with so you can gain popularity and get more press. In most cases, people go to clubs together just to be seen and to create hype.

Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan probably did not have heart-to-heart talks on Sunday nights while drinking wine and watching Desperate Housewives. But there are a few cases in which people really do like each other and hang out because they are in fact best friends!

Starpulse Q&A With Jay Johnston: How the Mustachioed Half Lives

November 14th, 2007 4:19pm EST
Jay Johnston
Jay Johnston was used to strangers approaching him in public. After all, he was a prominent writer and actor on the cult HBO sketch series Mr. Show with Bob and David. Plus, he's had his fair share of encounters with the homeless and jerks who want to pick a fight with him simply because he's six foot five. But the oddest reactions Jay's received were the result of growing out a mustache during the first season of The Sarah Silverman Program for his role of Officer Jay McPherson. Suddenly, Jay found himself the victim of behavior he deemed to odd and annoying to endure and vowed to wear pro...
