Key & Peele are just releasing their Complete Series collection this week and their comedy series, while notable for its hairpiece excellence, is perhaps more so as an early adopter of social media...

Jon Stewart arose from TV retirement last week (and from underneath Stephen Colbert’s desk at The Late Show) to let loose one of his trademark rants...

With Garry Marshall’s passing, we fondly recall his contribution to the optimistic side of television writing and directing and how that time may never return. One of Marshall’s shows also contributed to TV lexicography, although obviously, not intentionally..

The new summer variety series Maya and Marty has premiered, and first impressions of this genre revival were very good. The variety show may yet rise again. Martin Short reprised his old Jiminy Glick character, an unwitting, ingratiating, overweight Hollywood reporter who "compliments" his subjects with a chain of earnest, back-handed insults... and Larry David's inability to do the interview straight was the best part...

TV was infamously deemed a “vast wasteland” and the “the idiot box.” But what we missed was that as a new medium — an electronic one — TV was first, at its core, one thing. It was modern art...

Sacha Baron Cohen’s new The Brothers Grimsby is now out in theaters, and we’ve been riffing on old clips from his HBO series Da Ali G Show for a couple of weeks now. (Booyakasha!)... Cohen is brilliant at maneuvering and improvising on the spot — and it’s no surprise he got himself in front of none other than the seeming next Republican presidential nominee to gleefully pitch a new business idea...

Kanye West is apparently $53 million in debt so he’s looking for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to not only get him out of debt, but to also pony up $1 billion to back West’s startup, called Donda... Stephen Colbert runs down the whole story for you...

We’re big fans of OK Go, the alt-rock group that seems to have made its stake not only with hit songs, but also with accompanying jaw-dropping videos that are art projects all by themselves...

So, with some of the TVWW crew in The Olde Towne, the Late Night with Seth Meyers spoof on Boston film tropes in a trailer for a fake picture called Boston Accent was especially loved. Like wicked pissa...

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has had a tough season, first getting sidelined with a fractured collarbone in September and the same injury last month ended his 2015 season. But it’s not all bad. James Corden who comes over for a sleepover to see if they can become best friends, the way Corden used to do it as a kid...
