Sarah Silverman, Cecily Strong, Sasheer Zamata
A Los Angeles comedy troupe is accusing Saturday Night Live of plagiarizing one of their sketches, CBS News reports.
Sarah Silverman opened up Saturday Night Live by answering some hilarious audience questions — from her 20-year-old self!
Silverman kicked off her monologue by making some jokes before grabbing a hand-held mic and heading into the audience and plopping down on a woman's lap. After asking some philosophical questions and sharing some life lessons, the first-time host reminded us of her short stint as a featured performer on the series back in the '90s by cutting to her own question from back in the day. And nothing says the '90s like a question about Wilson Phillips' solo album. Watch her monologue and our other favorite clips from the night.
The Walking Dead
This week, Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig mercilessly mocked a reporter whose knowledge of their new film The Skeleton Twins was not up to snuff, and The Walking Dead Season 4 got the Bad Lip Reading treatment. In Saturday Night Live news, Sarah Silverman prepped for her upcoming hosting stint and James Franco released his documentary offering a behind-the-scenes look at the show. Also, Rob Corddry and Mark Duplass debuted their new web series Wedlock. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
John Cho, Karen Gillan
How I'd love it if any of this season's dismal new wave of romantic comedies, all vying to be the next How I Met Your Mother, made me LOL. Sadly, I'm more inclined to search for a "cringe" emoticon, especially where ABC's two new Tuesday night entries are concerned.
The less objectionable is Selfie (8/7c), a strained attempt to update Pygmalion to the Instagram era, but coming off more like My Fair Lucy — because this Eliza Doolittle, here called Eliza Dooley (Doctor Who's Karen Gillan), is silly and vapid beyond belief or tolerance.
Mort Pfefferman's entire life has been an identity crisis. A divorced dad of three grown, though not always grown-up, children, melancholy Mort is truly at ease only when in the heretofore secret guise of his feminine alter ego, Maura. In a flashback from 20 years earlier, Maura laments, "No one's ever seen me except me" — a situation that's about to change as the funky younger Pfeffermans slowly get to know the truth about their trans parent in Amazon's Transparent (get it?), creator Jill Soloway's deeply felt, intensely human comedy. This series (available on Amazon Instant Prime starting Friday) should do for Amazon, reputation-wise, what House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black achieved for Netflix. It's at least their equal, with the feel and tone of...

Michael Sheen, Lizzy Caplan
Masters of Sex is back to give you satisfaction.
After last season's finale interruptus, Showtime's period drama returnsSunday at 10/9c to finish what Bill Masters (Michael Sheen) started. The doctor had just declared to his sex research partner Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) that she is the one thing he cannot live without.
