MTV is bringing back ‘Celebrity Death Match.’ You’re Welcome.

In the world of celebrity, there’s beef…and then there’s BEEF. Entire rap careers have been made out of one artist’s anger (and articulate means of expressing same) against another. Usually, this is done in public, or in 2015, on Twitter. More times than not, it’s just meaningless A-list drivel. Now, MTV is bringing back the more »

Key and Peele’s Substitute Teacher character will be a movie

A character from comedy sketch artists Key and Peele – a crusty substitute teacher from the inner city unleashed on a class of laconic white teens slightly more energetic than Napoleon Dynamite – will soon get the full-length movie treatment.
