Comedian Sara Schaefer debuted all eight episodes of her new web series, Day Job, today.

Watch Nikki & Sara's 'Blurred Lines' Parody

The internet has been awash with parodies of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" music video for the past month or so, but here's one that's a cut above the rest. It comes from MTV's late night show Nikki & Sara Live, which just started its second season on Tuesday, and, unlike any other "Blurred Lines" parody I've seen, it involves barn animals.

Did E! Rip Off 'Nikki and Sara Live'?

Earlier today, Nikki Glaser sent a sad tweet out to her followers: "So, @ENews blatantly stole a bit from my old MTV show. It feels really shitty." Glaser included a clip from Nikki and Sara Live, the 2013 talk show she co-hosted with Sara Schaefer, in which a counter dings every time the ladies touch a celebrity on the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards. It's a move they dubbed the "gentle arm touch" to make fun of E!'s annoying need to get buddy-buddy with famous people, but it seems like E! may have hijacked this bit for their own gain. So did E! blatantly steal this [...]

Talking to Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer About Season Two of 'Nikki & Sara Live'

Co-created and co-hosted by standups Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer, MTV's late night talk show Nikki & Sara Live debuted its second season late last month. The series is a mix of topical jokes, sketches, on the street bits, and celebrity interviews that quickly found an audience and earned a renewal from the network after premiering this spring. I recently had the chance to speak with Glaser and Schaefer about the new season, how they go about hiring writers, and why they're not doing their show live anymore.

You Had To Be There #112: Where Are My Omelettes?

The obvious pinnacle of your humble hosts’ next few days is their opportunity to attend the VMAs with handsome hamsters and every famous person on the face of the planet.
