To get that going, I am predicting Season 40’s hosts and musical guests. I already posted my host guesses, so now it's time for my MG picks.

Musical guests are notoriously tougher to predict than hosts, as album releases generally are not scheduled as far in advance as movies and TV shows. So I will consider it a great success if my picks are even half right, especially consideri...

'Saturday Night Live' Season 40 Host Predictions
The season 40 premiere of “Saturday Night Live” is a little less than a month from now (September 27), which means it is time to start speculating how this year of the sketch comedy institution will shake down. To get that going, I will be predicting Season 40’s hosts and musical guests. I think of the guests of “SNL” as a sort of time capsule of who is big in entertainment during any given season – so who will be big in 2014-2015? I will start with the hosts, and my MG picks will follow soon.

The hosts tend to fit in a few particular categories: performers who are coming off a successf...

The 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards take place tonight in Los Angeles. Perhaps you have been preparing for the ceremony by scrolling through a list of past winners. If so, you have probably noticed a lot of names that you barely recognize - unless you have watched every single TV show ever.

When it comes to quality television, there are certain actors who did fine enough work on one or two shows to win an Emmy or two but never really became famous beyond that – the Peter MacNicols and Tyne Dalys of the world.

Emmy history is littered with unpredictable results, thanks to the TV Academy’s p...

Don Pardo’s Most Memorable SNL Moments
Longtime voice of NBC Don Pardo passed away this week at the age of 96. During his time at the Peacock network, Pardo was most famous, of course, as the announcer of “Saturday Night Live.” While his 40 years at “SNL” almost exclusively consisted of bellowing the names of every cast member and guest who strode the halls of Studio 8H, he occasionally made time to appear in sketches. Here are some classic moments when his contributions to the show went beyond the opening credits:

1. Season 1, Episode 1 Opening Montage (10/11/75)

This list actually will start with a moment from the opening...
