Eddie Murphy Heads Back To 'SNL' For 40th Anniversary Special

Eddie Murphy Returning To 'Saturday Night Live' For First Time I
Eddie Murphy is set to return to "Saturday Night Live" for the first time in over three decades.

The comedian, who was a regular player on the show from 1980 to 1984, will appear in the show's upcoming 40th Anniversary special, which is set to air next month.

Unlike dozens of former cast members who have gone back to host the show since departing, Murphy is one who never made it back to the show's New York City studio to serve as host, and he says it's simply because of scheduling conflicts.

"It just never worked out where the timing was right for me to do it," he tells NewsOne.com's Rol...

'Scandal' Recap And Review: Musings On 'Run'

January 30th, 2015 9:30am EST
'Scandal' Winter Premiere Review: Musings On 'Run'
“I’m Olivia Pope… It’s funny because it’s useless.”

This might be a controversial statement but “Run” is the best Scandal episode since season 2. Not only that, but “Run” is what Scandal should be like. No ridiculous subplots where Huck is having is fiftieth meltdown. No insane political maneuvers that would never work in a million years. No long winded speeches that repeat a central theme over and over until your ears bleed. Just focus on the central character and her plight. There was even minimal Fitz, which is a blessing on its own.

Sure, the show has evolved into Alias-lite, with evi...

'Archer' Recap And Review: 'Edie's Wedding' - Everyone's Horrible

'Archer' Recap And Review: 'Edie's Wedding' - Everyone's Horribl
Frasier had Maris. Home Improvement had Wilson. Archer has Edie Poovey: that character you don't see who becomes infamous in their non-appearance. In "Edie's Wedding," we finally meet Edie - and like her sister Pam, we immediately wish that we hadn't.

If you couldn't guess from the title of the episode, Edie (voiced by Emmy Award nominee and FX network alum Allison Tolman, who it should be said is far nicer than her character) is getting married, and that leaves Pam desperate for a date to accompany her to the ceremony, sobbing hysterically in the break room. Archer originally just wants h...

Super Bowl: Everything You Need To Know About Katy Perry's Halft
Katy Perry's promising huge things for this Sunday's Super Bowl XLIL halftime show.

Yesterday, the "Roar" singer spoke at a press conference about her upcoming Super Bowl performance.

Mostly, she just cracked football related jokes. On Deflategate, Perry riffed that "nothing in my performance will be deflated." She also threw out her best Marshawn Lynch impression, shutting down a question with "I'm just here so I don't get fined."

But there was actual news about Perry's halftime show in there too. For one, she'll be bringing live sharks and a live lion to the halftime stage. “I’m probab...

'Grey’s Anatomy' Recap 'Where Do We Go From Here'

January 30th, 2015 7:44am EST
grey's anatomy
Happy New Year, “Grey’s” watchers. The TGIT withdrawal has finally been lifted and we’re right where we left off. Derek’s more gung ho than ever to go to D.C., even at the risk of breaking his post-it note marriage vows. No matter, Meredith chucks the symbol of their commitment—the framed post-it note—in the trash. Shattering it in several pieces. (BTW nice touch with the intro, ShondaLand.)

The overarching theme of “Where Do We Go From Here” is adjusting to trauma. But the first step is getting over the shock. Meredith is proactive; she interviews a nanny that will more or less take Derek...

Suge Knight Kills Friend In Hit And Run, Turns Self In
Hip-Hop mogul Suge Knight may have just killed a man in a hit and run.

The incident began last night on a movie shoot in Compton, featuring Dr. Dre and Ice Cube. Knight drove on to the set, where a physical altercation began between him and two unknown men.

After the fight broke out, Knight got back into his car and fled the scene- but in driving away, he ran over and killed another man.

TMZ claims that Knight was so quick to get out of there because he's already in poor health (Knight was grievously wounded in a shooting last year).

They also claim the man he ran over was Terry Carter...
