Curb Your Enthusiasm returns this Summer and in this behind-the-scenes look at the new season, we get a peek at what Larry David's been up to. He's following up the Seinfeld reunion by bringing the whole show across the country to NYC. The change in scenery means a fresh crop of guest stars including Rosie O'Donnell, Michael J. Fox, and a currently cameo-happy Ricky Gervais. Red Sox fans should also be ready to open up some old wounds, since Bill Buckner makes an appearance. The crew will stay on the East Coast for a number of episodes, but don't worry, he'll be back up to his antics in LA during the season as well. Some of you are ready to see Curb Your Enthusiasm canceled, but perhaps this pret-ty pret-ty funny preview will change your mind. Check it out and let us know what you think!
As someone who grew up watching Saturday Night Live, I have a soft spot for sketches like Mary Katherine Gallagher, The Delicious Dish, and the Spartan cheerleaders (fun fact: I actually did a skit as Arianna in my high school talent show). So tonight's The Women of SNL special has me particularly jazzed, as several of the female veterans reunite to relive their favorite clips and bring us some new material.
Tina Fey, Ana Gasteyer, Nora Dunn, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Cheri Oteri, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, and Kristen Wiig will all be appearing, and if this early photo of them reenacting The Real Housewives is any indication, it's going to be fun times. The special starts on NBC at 9 p.m. EDT — are you going to tune in?

Betty White, you are a gem. I wasn't quite sure if your Saturday Night Live gig could live up to its hype, but boy did it, and then some. Not only was the show funny, it gave the late-night program its best ratings in 18 months!
With a little help from past SNL stars like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Maya Rudolph, White was adorable, sweet, and a little dirty-minded — just how we love her. Fey and the rest of the alums brought back impressions like Sally O'Malley, the NPR Delicious Dish hosts, and Whitney Houston, and it reminded me of how good SNL can be. Yes, there were a ton of references to White's age — we get it, she's 88 and a half — but so many skits had me laughing. Which was your favorite? Personally, I can't choose, so check out these three (along with a very special unaired Debbie Downer!) when you read more
That's a lot of ladies.
A while back I reported on the many women who signed up for Diane English's remake of the 1939 film The Women, including Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Jada Pinkett Smith, Debra Messing and Candice Bergen. Now, get ready for six more names to join the cast.
Today the following ladies are joining the project, which will apparently include an all-female cast: Bette Midler, Ana Gasteyer, Cloris Leachman, Carrie Fisher, Lynn Whitfield, Joanna Gleason, and Debi Mazar.
Looking good, ladies, looking good.
I'm excited for this project, though I think the cast could still use some more diversity. Still, done the right way, I think an all-female cast doing a remake of this classic could be really entertaining and empowering.
