Triumph Pooped All Over the World Cup


Conan sent his old pal Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to Queens to watch the World Cup and talk to fans — presumably flights to Brazil were too expensive — and, unsurprisingly, he made fun of a whole bunch of people right to their faces, and it was great. Never change, Triumph.

It's Not Looking Good for a Sixth Season of 'Community'

community_s5While it was previously reported that Sony and Hulu were in talks to revive the cancelled Community for a sixth season on the streaming site, TV Line is now reporting that Hulu has given up on the negotiations. There's still a tiny glimmer of a chance that the show could be revived if Sony can find another suitor by next week, when all of the actors' contracts expire, but that seems pretty unlikely at this point.

But hey, they had a good run! Five seasons is three or four seasons more than one could have really expected a show so willfully weird to last on network TV. As yearbook quote pages everywhere say, don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened. Also, dance as if no one is watching. That has less to do with Community, but is still just solid advice.

Key and Peele Are Introducing Hillary Clinton's Anger Translator in Their New Season

Luther, President Obama's anger translator, was one of the first characters to blow up virally from Key and Peele. So it's only natural that the duo are set to introduce a similar anger translator for Hillary Clinton, the presumed Democratic frontrunner in the next election. Peele himself told Vulture that he's "99 percent" sure the new character will make the cut, saying:

Whereas Michelle’s translator Contendra felt like she owned a beauty salon, maybe somewhere on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, I think Hillary’s translator would be more trailer bait. We’re thinking deep Arkansas good ol’ gal who does not censor herself.

Sounds pretty perfect. The fourth season of Key and Peele kicks off this fall.

Ricky Gervais and Jimmy Fallon Played Word Sneak, Despite Gervais's Objections


Ricky Gervais was on The Tonight Show last night, and he and Fallon played "Word Sneak", the game in which each person has a list of five words that they need to try to sneak into natural conversation. Naturally, it devolved pretty quickly, with Gervais only half-committing to the game, but it still ended pretty perfectly.

Kate McKinnon Talked About the Genesis of Her Bieber and Ellen Impressions and 'Dyke & Fats' on 'Conan'


SNL breakout start Kate McKinnon was on Conan last night, where she talked about how she developed both her wonderful Justin Bieber and Ellen impressions as well as the "Dyke & Fats" sketch she did with Aidy Bryant. The trick to the Bieber impression is pretending to be a puppy who just piddled on the rug, it turns out, just in case you want to try it yourself. READ MORE

Stephen Colbert Grew a "Tony Stark Goatee" to Show Solidarity with Billionaires


Stephen Colbert unveiled some stylish (?) new facial hair on last night's episode of The Colbert Report. His "Tony Stark goatee" was grown to show solidarity with that poor, put-upon class: billionaires. It was all to prep for his guest, French economist Thomas Piketty, who argues for a punitive global tax on the very wealthy to help fight income inequality in his new book Capital. Obviously, the super rich like Stephen Colbert and Tony Stark are in no way on board with these ideas. Check out his intro to the goatee and Piketty above, with his confrontation with Piketty below.

Hulu May Order a Sixth Season of 'Community'

The dream of six seasons and a movie may not be dead after all: Deadline is reporting that Hulu is in talks with Sony to produce a sixth season of the recently canceled Community. Despite Dan Harmon initially being lukewarm on the idea of continuing the show somewhere else once NBC gave it the axe, he's apparently on board if Hulu does end up ordering the show.

Talks are very early, so this could easily end up not happening, but both sides are open to the discussion, so we'll see. And if it does happen, could Donald Glover potentially come back as well? Keep hope alive, human beings.
