2016 has been a year fraught with death, sadness, and insanity, even if we’re just talking about what we saw on TV. Through it all, the laughter has never died. As proof, here are a whole bunch of TV moments that made us laugh this year.
This is not a list of the funniest things that happened on TV in 2016, since that would be really difficult and polarizing to compile. This is just a list of things that made us laugh really hard in 2016, and hopefully it will bring you as much joy as it brings … read more

It’s not unimaginable that Amy Schumer wept at the end of 2015, for there were no more worlds for her to conquer. In just the last year, she picked up a Peabody and two Emmys for Inside Amy Schumer; made her starring and screenwriting debut on the big screen with Trainwreck; hosted the MTV Movie Awards; released an HBO stand-up special; advocated for gun control with her cousin Senator Chuck Schumer; Jet Skied with her new BFF Jennifer Lawrence; and was heralded seemingly everywhere as a generation-defining … read more
Has Alec Baldwin found a new calling as a couples counselor? In an exclusive clip from Thursday’s Rachel Dratch’s Late Night Snack, Baldwin surprises a young couple in a limo with some relationship advice. “I’m sorry. I’m so starstruck right now,” says Jesus, after saying a curse word when he sees the 30 Rock star sitting across from him.

Broad City anointed Hillary Clinton the yass-iest of the kweens last night in one of the most political episodes the show has ever done. Essentially a riff on the Onion headline “Female Presidential Candidate Who Was United States Senator, Secretary Of State Told To Be More Inspiring,” Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson did their part to help Clinton with her youth-vote problem by satirizing anti-HRC sexism, reframing the candidate as a powerful woman worthy of (orgasmic) worship, and presenting … read more
As a true connoisseur of feuds, Rosie O’Donnell doesn’t trouble herself anything so low-quality as Twitter fights. The doyenne of dustups — who has battled everyone from Donald Trump to Kelly Ripa to Elizabeth Hasselbeck — told [email protected] that she ignores online battles because the combatants “probably have never even met.” When we asked the alum of “The View” (inset) what she thought of Bette Midler’s beef with Kim Kardashian — or, as we reported yesterday, probably Kayne … read more
With the incredibly popular FX series American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, we had to look back at Kris Jenner’s perspective on the trial and the “signs” that she says may have pointed to O.J. Simpson’s involvement in Nicole Brown’s 1994 death.
During an interview with E! in 2009, the reality star momager opened up about situations prior to Brown’s murder, revealing things we’d never known before—like Simpson’s obsession with his wife and the fact that she had been “living in fear” … read more
The stars of Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place, Lizzie McGuire, Sonny With a Chance, Camp Rock and more may have put their Disney Channel days behind them as far as lives and careers go.
But Selena Gomez—answering questions nearly eight years later about dating Nick Jonas after he and Miley Cyrus broke up—just reminded us that the real drama and life lessons took place off-camera. So we, wanting to save you the dirty work, settled down with our calculators and protractors to map out just … read more
Scientology ain’t so scary. Although the church has a reputation for targeting its critics, Billy Eichner – who has mocked it mercilessly – says he’s not afraid of reprisal. The “Billy on the Street” star says the once-fearsome religion has been weakened by high-profile defectors and Internet exposure. Back in December Eichner released a video in which “Saturday Night Live” alum Rachel Dratch tackled an elaborate obstacle course named “Escape From Scientology.” The clip mocked Xenu, the god-like … read more
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler might have some bad blood on their hands after this weekend.
On “Saturday Night Live,” the duo poked fun at Taylor Swift and her band of supermodel friends in a sketch called “Tina & Amy’s Dope Squad.”
Filmed to look like the “Bad Blood” music video, Fey and Poehler appear in an array of superhero-meets-sex vixen outfits, while they sing about the “dope” women (and a man, too!) in their lives. Everyone from Fey’s and Poehler’s nannies and their gynecologist (yes, … read more
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler gave us something we’ve all been waiting for when they hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.
On “SNL,” the comedians/BFFs reprised their roles as Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton. What more could we ask for this holiday season?
In one of the standout sketches of the night, “A Hillary Christmas,” Kate McKinnon’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton comes face to face with Poehler’s Hillary Clinton, circa 2008.
The laughter of Poehler’s Clinton wakes McKinnon up.
“Is … read more

Does the role reversal work? Read these reviews to see what critics are saying about the comediennes’ … read more
Listen up, you scruffy looking nerf herders! This weekend, all anyone’s going to be talking about is the brand new “Star Wars” movie that’s dropping in theaters December 18. It would be downright nonsensical to schedule a film release opposite this nostalgic juggernaut of a cinematic experience, right? Totally no one is doing that, right? Wrong. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey’s latest movie “Sisters” is also coming out this weekend — and let’s face it, they all know they’re going up … read more
You don’t become one of the most successful stars in Hollywood without stepping on a few toes along the way. Take Tina Fey, star of “30 Rock” and the upcoming Amy Poehler buddy comedy “Sisters,” who served as the first female head writer at “Saturday Night Live” from 1997 to 2006.
In an interview on Sirius XM’s “The Howard Stern Show,” Fey, a frequent guest on the boundary pushing radio hour, told the host that an “SNL” co-star once called her “a c**t.”
She was initially reluctant to give up … read more
