Saturday Night Live
We knew this weekend’s Saturday Night Live would be good–Justin Timberlake being to the variety show what fruit and sprinkles are to plain frozen yogurt … just something that you know will make the whole supposed treat actually delicious–but did we know it was going to be history-making? Probably not. From Lorne Michaels lifting the Chevy Chase ban to the Jay-Z duet, the return of Stefon, Andy Samberg AND the classic Festrunk brothers, Mr. Timberlake proved once again he’s the consummate entertainer: a song-and-dance man who also can also land a punchline.
Which is more than we can say for the majority of guest hosts this year. Below, the five best moments from this weekend’s show, along with our favorites.
John Golden, a broker at Douglas Elliman, is re-listing the East Hampton estate that he sold nine years ago to Peter and Juliana Terian.
It wasn’t easy—the seller back then made Mr. Golden nervous.
“I always got nervous when I brought people to see the house when he Read More
Chevy Chase’s former estate at 19 Lee Avenue in East Hampton is on the market for $33 million. The sprawling 3.2-acre property spans from Lee Avenue to luxe Lily Pond Lane.

Monday: Men of a Certain Age
When it comes to original programming, TNT hasn’t fared nearly as well as fellow cable netlet USA. That’s because whereas the latter channel has succeeded by matching high concept fluffiness (Burn Notice, Royal Pains, White Collar) with up and coming actors (Jeffrey Donovan, Mark Feuerstein and Matthew Bomer), Read More
It might only be the middle of September, but we still feel confident in calling Joel McHale the breakout star of the fall television season. The snarky host of The Soup is so perfectly on-point in Community—premiering tonight at 9:30 on NBC, before moving to 8:30 when 30 Rock returns on October 15—so Read More
If there is a silver lining to be found in the end of the summertime—besides these seasonable temperatures!—it’s that we are on the precipice of the fall television season. Thank goodness. In an effort to get you and your DVR prepared, here’s the Observer’s fall TV preview. Yesterday, we talked about CBS. Next Read More
While NBC still has another two weeks to finalize their fall schedule—fans of Medium, Law & Order and Chuck will have to continue to hold their respective vigils until May 19th, when a decision on those series’ fates is expected to be rendered—it’s never too early to start handicapping! In addition to the post-apocalyptic Day Read More
“I’m wearing stuff out of the bottom of my suitcase,” a modest Hilary Duff, sporting a black camisole and short white skirt, told reporters outside the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center on Thursday, April 23.
“This is Yigal Azrouël,” she said, pointing to her skirt, “and the rest is just my stuff I Read More
With word yesterday that HBO optioned the yet-to-be-finished 2008 election account, Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime, by Time’s Mark Halperin and New York’s John Heilemann, it’s clear the network is looking to corner the market on waxwork political docudramas. Just last Read More
It looks like hell has frozen over. After spending the better part of the last two years firmly ensconced inside the barrel because of some truly terrible decision making—cough, Knight Rider—NBC Entertainment co-chairman Ben Silverman might actually deserve some credit. Kings, which premiered last night, was as bizarre and interesting as anything we’ve seen on Read More
