I LOLed more than once
Last week we saw the promo videos for Dwayne The Rock Johnson‘s 4th time hosting Saturday Night Live and last night, he got the job done quite well, actually. I’m not sure that I was expecting much from his episode but I was very pleasantly surprised by how funny most of the skits were last night. The cold open skit, embedded above, that revolved around The Rock Obama was a great indicator that the rest of the episode would bring the LULz. The skit about Disney‘s live-action Bambi movie was another fave (but The Jungle was just too damn funny). Click below to watch all of the SNL skits from last night’s episode and see how funny The Rock really is as SNL host. I gotta say, now I’m looking forward to his 5th time hosting as well. More »

We are just 3 weeks away from the premiere of the third season of Orphan Black so the promo push for the new season is in full swing. Last week we got to see a scene from the Orphan Black season 3 premiere episode and today we get to check out a great new teaser trailer. The new season of OB will focus on the introduction of the male clones from Project: Castor and as you can see above, they look like they are going to be a fun bunch. Gah! I can’t wait for this show to return. Orphan Black season 3 premieres on BBC America on April 18, my body is READY!

So, this is an odd feeling. I’m not 100% sure as to how I feel about last night’s Scandal. After the high of last week’s “It’s Good to Be Kink,” maybe I was expecting some more theatrics, but this week fell a bit flat for me. Even though we saw the return of one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE Scandal characters, something felt a bit off. Or maybe Cyrus‘ Throwback wig was just too damn distracting. Let’s discuss together, and maybe I’ll be able to put my finger on it. Click inside for more!

YES YES YES YES
The History Channel has announced that they have renewed their amazing TV series Vikings for a 4th season. I am absolutely loving the current season of Vikings so this news is really, really great news for me. I understand that Vikings has been ranking as the #1 cable series on Thursday nights so it sounds like THC is really hoping to keep the momentum going with another season. I don’t want to spoil anything for those of you not entirely caught up with the show (or for those of you who have yet to start watching) but one of the characters featured in this gallery has already peaced the spork out on the show. I’m hopeful that the rest of these characters will live to see season 4 when it debuts on THC next year but we’ll have to keep watching to find out. Yes! More Vikings is coming our way. Please watch this show, I promise you will love it.

We know that Hilary Duff is readying the release of a new album (at long last) and that she will be starring in a new TV sitcom titled Younger so it makes total sense that she would marry these two things into one massive promo item. Hilary Duff previews her new single Sparks, due out on April 7, in this just-released new promo video for her TV Land TV series Younger, which premieres on March 31. Hello! So much Hilary Duff, all at once. Can you stand it? Click above to hear Hil. D‘s new song and get a second look at her new TV show. Amazing, right?

I LOVE THIS!!
British comedian James Corden took over as host of The Late Late Show this week and has been doing everything he can to get people to watch the show. Last night, he did a bit with Mariah Carey that totally caught my attention. The set-up is that James, being new to LA, needs someone to drive around with him so he can acclimate to traffic here and he got Mariah Carey to be his carpool buddy. The two sing together, trade accents together, crack wise together … it’s great! Check out the Carpool Karaoke bit with Mimi above and think about tuning in to watch James Corden as the new host of The Late Late Show, maybe?
Earlier this month, pop star and sometimes actress Christina Aguilera shared some photos from the set of the ABC drama Nashville (HERE and HERE) to tease her upcoming guest appearance on the show. Today we get to see the first video promo to feature Xtina on Nashville. ABC aired the video promo embedded above last night announcing that Nashville returns next Wednesday with a new episode and as you can see, this video gives us an early peek at the ep that will introduce Xtina as a character named Jade on the show. I understand she will appear in a multi-episode arc and her stint on the show begins on April 15 (thanks Jess). Are you ready?
Uhhhhh ... Go, Go Gadget Away!

And the young 'Idol' contestants had no idea what was going on
Remember back in December when I shared that hilariously brilliant Geico commercial that features Salt-N-Pepa and their classic song Push It? Well, last night, SNP brought Push It to the Millennial masses on American Idol to perform the song and it was only EVERYTHING. I believe it was ’80s night on Idol last night (which is why Boy George was randomly in the building) and Salt-N-Pepa were asked to school the children on what’s what by performing their classic hit song … the only problem is that most/all of the very young Idol contestants likely had no idea who Salt-N-Pepa are (and it’s possible that they only know Push It from the Geico commercial on TV right now). For the rest of us, tho, SNP‘s performance is pretty damn sweet. Click the embed above to watch and lurve.
