Let's revisit the many projects Jordan Peele has in the works

Having acquired a healthy stash of Hollywood capital after the smash success of his Oscar-winning horror satire Get Out—and the enthusiastic critical reception to Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman, produced by his company Monkeypaw Productions—Jordan Peele has refused to be even remotely shy about spending it. Earlier today, …

Marvel's Runaways gets a season 2 premiere date and an MCU connection tease

One of the more annoying aspects of Netflix’s Marvel shows—beyond the overly long seasons—is the weird insistence on maintaining a noticeable distance between themselves and the big-screen Marvel movies that they ostensibly share a universe with. Characters rarely mention Captain America by name, despite the fact that…

Chris Hardwick gets emotional upon Talking Dead return, fails to mention staffers who quit

A few weeks ago, after surveying the nation’s nerd coffers and somehow finding them to be empty, AMC declared that Chris Hardwick would return to his post as host of The Talking Dead.

Tony Shalhoub on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and the fabled Psych/Monk crossover

Opening with slick overhead shots of Los Angeles set to Ravyn Lenae’s “Sticky,” Insecure feels more polished than…

Pornhub awards Kanye a lifetime membership, so he can really focus some attention on himself

Kanye West went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, talking about all the things you’d expect a mercurial superstar to chat about on national TV: His wife, his work, his politics, his preferred masturbation habits. That last one came up when West responded to a question from Kimmel about his attitudes toward women in…

We'll take "Jeopardy! is finally streaming on Hulu" for "Oh hell yes," Alex

For a certain kind of mind, there’s no greater game show than Jeopardy!. (The exclamation point is important, damn it.) Fast-paced, intellectually daunting, and consistently dorky, the show has long been a staple in the lives of mental show-offs, delighting in their self-assigned “Coryat scores,” and getting extremely…
