Mega Buzz on Grey's, Lost, Fringe, Smallville and More!

Mark Valley (Fringe), Evangeline Lilly (Lost) and T.R. Knight (Grey's Anatomy)

Senior editors Matt Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy answer your questions. Drop us a line at

Is there any indication that Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes is going to adjust her stories because of all of the recent negative feedback? — Heidi
MATT: I doubt that Rhimes will alter any master plans, especially when it comes to the Izzie/Denny "romance" which, though polarizing, seems destined to serve some greater purpose. Now, speaking of "negative feedback," I've got at least one source telling me that T.R. Knight's apparent disenchantment with Grey's might not necessarily result in him exiting the series early. Wouldn't it be refreshing to see cooler heads prevail? 

The John Scott character on Fringe is such a joyful enigma; maybe one of you can convince the producers to bring him back from the dead? — Susan
MICKEY: [Peeking out from behind a giant Chinese fan] You know who else is a joyful enigma, Susan? Me! When I asked my friends o' Fringe about John Scott's possible reanimation ... read more

VIDEO: Gov. Blagojevich's Hair — Really!?!

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich

Last week, everyone couldn't stop talking about Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's arrest on charges of conspiracy and soliciting bribes. But Saturday Night Live's weekend update couldn't resist poking fun at the helmet of hair Blagojevich sports 24/7. During Seth Meyer's and Amy Poehler's final "Weekend Update" segment together, the two dove into their "Really!?!" bit with the governor as their target. At first, the two addressed the situation as a whole, but at the 1:10 mark, the SNLers launched into a solid forty-five seconds of sheer mockery about Blagojevich's hairstyle of choice.

Watch the video, and find out more about Blagojevich's reported obsession with his nicknamed hairbrush after the jump.

SNL Slammed for Blindsiding Blind Governor of New York

Saturday Night Live

Neither New York Gov. David A. Paterson nor a leading organization for the blind see the humor in a Saturday Night Live segment sending up the visually impaired politician.

"I can take a joke," Paterson tells the New York Daily News. "But only 37 percent of disabled people are working, and I'm afraid that that kind of third-grade humor adds to [misconceptions]."

As depicted by Fred Armisen on this weekend's show, Paterson needed help ... read more

Molly Sims Was Hot to Help Samberg with Racy SNL Vid

Molly Sims, Andy Samberg

The mellifluous Molly Sims may have her pick of men, but she jumped at the chance to help SNL's Andy Samberg "jizz" in his pants.

"They called me directly — no agents, no managers, nothing," the former Las Vegas beauty told E!. "It was like, 'Can you do this?' I said yes. And it was like, 'Be here tomorrow.'" Sims joined Samberg for the comedian's latest digital short, "Jizz in My Pants," as a seductress on the dance floor who gets him to — well, you know. 

Sims was ready to get up close and personal in part because...More, after the jump. read more

VIDEO: SNL Did Whaaat in Their Pants?

Molly Sims, Andy Samberg

Just when you thought Saturday Night Live's "Dick in a Box" would go down as the best digital short in history, the late-night crew has upped their game with another dirty little music video that involves a dirty little oopsies in the undies — "Jizz In My Pants." The soon-to-be viral hit stars Andy Samberg alongside Jorma Taccone, an SNL writer and fellow member of Samberg's The Lonely Island sketch comedy group. Also featured in the risqué short are Molly Sims and Jamie-Lynn Sigler as the sexy ladies who prompt the premature party foul. And to really hit it out of the park, SNL recruited Justin Timberlake for a few key cameos throughout the video as the disgusted janitor in charge of the clean up on aisle three.

Watch the video after the jump.

NBC's Midseason Plan Turns on Lights, Rests Heroes and Kicks Off New Dance

Friday Night Lights hits NBC sooner rather than later (Jan. 16, to be exact).

NBC's midseason slate will bring viewers a largely revamped January, sidelining a handful of shows to make room for some new programming. Also on tap is a pair of Saturday Night Live specials.

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.
