Tina Fey: How I Came Up with "Mom Jeans"

Tina Fey

Before Mom Jeans became a catchy jingle and a fashion don't on Saturday Night Live, they were simply Tina Fey's last-minute clothing solution.

Fey tells Vogue she first came up with the idea for Mom Jeans after she had a fire in her apartment and had to buy a pair of emergency jeans for work one day. "It was right before... read more

Lisa Edelstein (House), Mark Harmon (NCIS), Josh Holloway (Lost)

Every week, editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant answer your burning questions. Want some TV scoop? Please send all questions to

Should House fans hold out any hope for more Huddy? — Maureen
Right now, the best I can promise you is that Dr. Crankypants will experience something of a thaw when it comes to Cuddy in next week's episode. There will still be scads of ice floes between them, but they'll look smaller, like in An Inconvenient Truth, except without all the dead polar bears and with Lucas.

I know it's a little early, but any scoop on what to expect from this year's NCIS finale? — Jackie
: It's never too early, Jackie! Especially not for executive producer Shane Brennan. "I'm a great believer in planning it out and knowing where we're going to land," he tells me. "The audience has already seen... read more

Conan O'Brien Says Goodbye to Tonight Show

Conan O'Brien

Conan O'Brien ended his brief run as host of The Tonight Show with thanks to his fans and even the network that is replacing him a mere seven months into his dream job.

"Yes, we have our differences right now and yes, we're going to go our separate ways," O'Brien said of NBC, his employer of 17 years. "But this company has been my home for most of my adult life. I am enormously proud of the work we have done together, and I want to thank NBC for making it all possible."

Leave it to Weaver: Actress Sigourney Weaver, who has scored Oscar nominations for her work in the films Aliens, Working Girl and Gorillas in the Mist, headlines the show as the host. Weaver is currently queen of the world, appearing in James Cameron's visually stunning box-office titan Avatar. (Cameron also directed Weaver in the 1986 space odyssey Aliens.) Weaver blasts off tonight, helping the SNL players rip into the week's newsworthy events — and perhaps even throw some satirical zingers at Avatar itself. The English pop duo the Ting Tings deliver music performances.

True and her pals get involved in a school play, and they quickly learn that all the real drama occurs backstage. True and Lulu are initially pleased that Ryan is the director. However, their excitement fades when Ryan fires True from working on the costumes and casts his crush, Kelsey, as the lead instead of Lulu. But Ryan better watch out, because an angry True is even willing to team up with Pinky Turzo (returning guest star Jeanette McCurdy) to get revenge.

It's the last live outing before the holidays, so we can expect some Yuletide yuks tonight. The show has delivered memorable comedy for Christmas in the past — take Alec Baldwin's "Delicious Dish and the Schweddy Balls" and Steve Martin's "A Holiday Wish," for example. Jingling all the way as host is James Franco, who has appeared in the films Milk, Pineapple Express and in the Spider-Man franchise. We also get amusement from Muse. Hot off the release of their fifth studio album, The Resistance, the Brit band delivers alt experimentation and prog-rock blast on the performance stage.

Premise: Landmark, Emmy-winning satire from an ever-changing company of 'Not Ready for Prime Time Players' who rode the variety show to fame, including (to name just a few of its celebrated grads) Eddie Murphy, Dana Carvey, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Al Franken and Mike Myers. From its debut, with Andy Kaufman's memorably bizarre rendition of the 'Mighty Mouse' theme, through John Belushi's Samurai and Gilda Radner's Roseanne Roseannadanna, 'SNL' forever changed the landscape of TV comedy.
