For decades Weird Al has entertained fans, young and old, with his popular clever parodies and unique sense of humor. Having him headline the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show would not only be overly accepted by the millions of views, but it would remain true to the standards and [...]
As part of his unparalleled Superb Owl XLVIII coverage this week, Stephen Colbert did a two-part "Fallback Position" segment to learn all about championship NFL quarterbackery with former Redskins coach Joe Gibbs, quarterback trainer and dreammaker Steve Clarkson, and NFLers Isaac Bruce and Gerald McCoy. Colbert's Super Bowl ring-stealing segment with Gibbs is above, and you can watch him piss off Isaac Bruce for a solid five minutes below.
Here's "Running Out the Clock," a fake Bob Dylan song that Tim Heidecker of Tim & Eric fame released in advance of Bob Dylan's fake performance at the Super Bowl halftime show, which is not a real thing that will happen this Sunday. I would actually watch the Super Bowl halftime show this year, though, if Tim Heidecker was planning on charging the stage and grabbing the mic from Beyonce so he could sing this song as Bob Dylan.
The BIG GAME is next week, and we're spending every waking moment preparing for it. After some initial confusion regarding the Super Bowl vs. Big Game Hunting, we talk about various foods found at Superbowl parties, Domino's Pizza foray into different types of food, the merits of having a party every Sunday evening, why Superman can't play in the Super Bowl, why Batman is a bad detective and debate whether or not an NFL player should be allowed to get a free pass to Disneyworld if it's possible that he was involved in a violent crime.
We also announce the details of our upcoming tour in UK and Ireland [...]
Billy Eichner did a report for Conan on the big Madonna concert in Indiannapolis this weekend, but a lot of the people attending – even the ones who call themselves "giant fans" – didn't even seem to CARE that she was performing. Plus, the big guys everyone was interviewing were in some kind of locker room for the entire performance. This country really needs to work on its apathy problem. (Side note: The lady who shows up at 0:44 sounds exactly like Vanessa Bayer's impression of Miley Cyrus. "Madonna? Oh, yeah, I like her. She's pretty cool.")
"It … sounds like what they would actually do, if you’re just casually listening to it. If you listen closely, it makes no sense—in an aggressive way. But it’s not far away from it—like if you listen to the Chili Peppers, they are just ding-a-ding-a-ding-a-ding-dong [laughs]. I have respect for them. I hope they weren’t insulted by it. I mean, anytime you’re making fun of someone, that’s a possibility. I think they would agree though that they kind of deserved it. Chad Smith from the Peppers tweeted it out with the message 'hahahaha,' so he liked it … What I wanted was to be invited into the band to sing. [...]
If you head over to RHCP2014.com, you'll be treated to a stream of the new song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who are performing at the halftime show of the Super Bowl on Sunday. Or at least that's what you'd think you were listening to if you were unfamiliar with Jon Daly and Zach Galafianakis's Pepper Men RHCP fan club from Comedy Bang! Bang! The song is called "Abracadabralifornia", and it sounds so much like an actual Chili Peppers song that it's kind of uncanny. Daly sang an early version of the song on CBB last March (skip to 24:45 to hear it), but this [...]
Here's Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen pitching ideas for a Samsung Super Bowl ad to Bob Odenkirk in a 60-second teaser for Samsung's upcoming 120-second Super Bowl commercial. I liked it, but I wish there was a 30-second teaser for the teaser I could have watched before committing to watching this 60-second commercial.
Jimmy Fallon announced a new video project on Late Night Friday that the wildly-talented Gregory Brothers are putting together for the show in honor of the Super Bowl. Watch Fallon explain what you can do to be a part of the video above, or just sit around like a lazy slob and kick yourself next week when you see whatever the cool thing the Gregory Brothers made without your help is.
These two Super Bowl ads really show that great commercials can come in all shapes and sizes. There's NBC's "please just watch some of our programs, we're literally begging you" spot, and then there's a Will Ferrell ad only seen in North Platte, Nebraska. On the one hand, you have an entire network of stars doing choreographed singing and dancing to a song from a Broadway show, from Community to SNL. And on the other, just a guy walking up in a field, and taking a cold drink from an Old Mi-
Some episodes of SNL are bigger than the host. For example, this season's premiere spotlighted the show's record six new cast members, while host Tina Fey shone in serviceable roles, like her pep talk to Cecily Strong in the latter's first time co-hosting Weekend Update. Similarly, last season's finale focused less on Ben Affleck's career comeback than it did on saying goodbye to Bill Hader and Fred Armisen (and Jason Sudeikis, though his departure hadn't been officially announced at that point). It's an awkward position for the host to find him or herself in, because not only do they feel the pressure to satisfy viewers tuning in to [...]
In case you missed them yesterday, here are all the Super Bowl commercials starring cool comedy people. The first is Will Ferrell's ad for Old Milwaukee, his second consecutive Super Bowl ad for the beer brand. Like the last one, it only aired locally (in three cities), which is pretty awesome. Hit the jump for Amy Poehler's Super Bowl ad and one starring Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Bob Odenkirk, both of which aired in more than three cities:
To avoid competing with the Super Bowl for ratings this Sunday, HBO has made the newest episode of its series Girls and Enlightened each available on its streaming service HBO Go right now. The episodes will also air on HBO early this Saturday (in additional to their normal Sunday timeslots) to avoid a Super Bowl scheduling conflict. Or you could just ask every one at your Super Bowl party to take a quick half-hour break from the big game to see what Lena Dunham and her friends are up to. Your call.
CBS's Late Late Show is doing a post-Super Bowl show after the game on February 3rd, and some big names are set to join host Craig Ferguson for what's being dubbed The Craig Ferguson Super Bowl Special. TV Line reports that the show will be heading to New Orleans, visiting Jackson Square (the Super Bowl location), Bourbon Street, the Tremé District, and other local spots for segments and that Craig Ferguson's guests will be Steve Carell (promoting his movie The Incredible Burt Wonderstone), Neil Patrick Harris, footballer player Drew Brees, Big Brother host Julie Chen, and Twilight actress Nikki Reed. This is Ferguson's second post-Super Bowl special after hosting one when [...]
