'The Voice': Which 3 Artists Will Make The Finals?
It's all come down to this - The Voice will reveal tonight which three of its artists will go through to next week's finals, before a round of last chance songs and then a Twitter vote will determine the fourth "wild card" finalist.

You still have just hours to cast your votes, but in case you haven't or just want to relive Monday night's performances, we've made our picks for who we believe will survive and offered a few potential choices for who will take that wild card spot.

Finalist #1: Matt McAndrew (Team Adam)

This show doesn't have many locks, but Matt is as close to a sure thing ...

'Saturday Night Live' Review: James Franco And Nicki Minaj

December 8th, 2014 9:12am EST
James Franco/Nicki Minaj - SNL
With a crisis in policing in America, and a movie studio being hacked, possibly in retaliation to the upcoming film starring tonight’s host, this week’s “SNL” was not struggling for topicality. Surprisingly enough, one of the most uncomfortable issues of the year shocked the show out of its politically tepid default, resulting in some legitimately funny material on a difficult subject. However, what this episode was most notable for was a bizarrely naturalistic pace. It was not slow and sleepy so much as it was that many of the sketches took their time to find a joke. Rhythmically, this...

'Constantine': 5 Best Moments from 'Blessed are the Damned'

'Constantine' Review: 5 Best Moments from 'Blessed are the Damne
It seems every supernatural-themed television series does the faith healer episode, in which a devoutly religious nobody preacher becomes a sensation over night when a mysterious power allows them to heal people. But the healing powers are connected to some dark force. The skeptical hero and the much-more-open-to-religion sidekick investigate and discover the menacing power behind the healer, discuss their views on religion, and resolve the situation a little less skeptical than when they began.

If this sounds like nothing but complaining, it’s not. As typical as this type of episode is to...

'Peter Pan Live' Review: Christopher Walken Can Save Anything

'Peter Pan Live!' Review: Christopher Walken Can Save Anything
Admit it. We all went into "Peter Pan Live!" expecting a disasterpiece of the highest order. Something like last year's "The Sound of Music Live!;" something so bafflingly silly and unprofessional that it transcends the word "terrible" and becomes something weirdly watchable.

It's why legions were poised on Twitter, hashtags ready, and why hatewatching became a real word that people used.

But there's nothing to hate in "Peter Pan Live!" In fact, there's quite a bit that stirs up the opposite emotion. This TV musical about kids that never wanna grow up had an extremely appropriate youthful...

'Parks And Recreation' Returns To NBC In January

'Parks And Recreation' Returns To NBC In January - But There's A
Dammit Jerry!

The seventh and final season of Parks and Recreation will return on Tuesday, Jan. 13 with back-to-back episodes from 8-9 PM each week leading up to the hourlong series finale on Tuesday, Feb. 24 following The Voice.

“In an effort to give it the send-off it deserves, we wanted to ‘eventize’ the final season to maximize the impact of these episodes, which really do take the show to a new level," said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt in a statement. "The highly-anticipated one-hour finale will air behind ‘The Voice’ in order to lead the largest audience possible int...

'The Voice': Top 8 Eliminations Put One Coach In Control

'The Voice': Top 8 Eliminations Put One Coach In Control
Last week, The Voice's eliminations put one coach in serious jeopardy. This week, they placed another in control of the competition - and sent a third to the bench, unless the "wild card" spot gives their team a second (third?) chance.

Three artists were bounced from contention on Tuesday instead of the usual two, as The Voice hurries to whittle down its field before the season's December 16 finale. That number will drop back down to two next week, creating the final three before one more singer is added as the result of the wild card.

And there's one coach who will need that wild card to...

'The Voice': Top Performances From The Top 8
If it wasn't crunch time before on The Voice, it is now. Eight singers performed on Monday, and only five will be left after the results are read on Tuesday night. That means four singers will be automatically advanced, and four will have to fight for their lives in hopes of earning the Twitter Instant Save.

Who punched their ticket straight through to next week's semifinals? We've picked out our four favorite renditions from the Top 8, and you can find out who America voted for tonight.

Team Blake: Craig Wayne Boyd, "Take It Easy"

Normally, when there's only one artist left on a team, t...

The Best Of 'Saturday Night Live's' Digital Shorts

November 29th, 2014 2:30pm EST
Laser Cats
Despite the third word in the title, pre-recorded content has been a major part of “Saturday Night Live” for all of its 40 years. This was never more prominent than it was from 2005-2013, when Andy Samberg and the rest of the Lonely Island (writers Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaeffer) were dominating the “SNL” conversation with their digital shorts. Samberg, Taccone, and Schaeffer were originally a comedy team in Southern California who had amassed a sizable following on YouTube. After being hired at “SNL,” they managed to produce over 100 of their idiosyncratic shorts in a little under a ...

'The Voice': Top 10 Eliminations

'The Voice': Top 10 Eliminations Put One Coach Against The Ropes
Tuesday night was another elimination night on The Voice - and the results were incredibly interesting.

As the show narrowed its roster from ten to eight - with just three weeks left in season seven - one coach is now down to their final artist (and it's not the coach you might suspect), while the reveal of America's vote proved to be telling for two singers.

But the eliminations were also blunted by the reminder that the pair of performers let go will remain eligible for the "wild card" finalist spot previously revealed last week.

It was three-time champion Blake Shelton who got the wor...
