WATCH: Dej Loaf Performs On Fallon

I have a confession to make: We recently dropped the ball on a hot hip-hop talent that has quickly begun making huge waves in the music industry. Dej Loaf is a Detroit emcee with a lot of passion for music, and her sound is quickly setting her apart from others on the rise. We missed her recent mixtape release, but we are making it a point to never miss another big headline, starting with her recent TV debut.

Appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s late night show, Dej Loaf made her television debut last night with a performance of her popular mixtape …

Freaks and Geeks Daley

‘Freaks and Geeks’ Will Reunite in ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation’ Reboot

Freaks and Geeks lovers, rejoice. The cult TV show will see a mini reunion between Sam, Neal, and Bill in the near future when National Lampoon’s Vacation gets a reboot. No, it’s not the whole cast, but something’s better than nothing 14 years after the show went off air.

John Francis Daley, aka Samm Weir, has been busy working as a writer, director, and actor since the show ended, but recently has decided to write an update on Vacation. When talking to Vulture about his time on Bones, he discussed the reboot, writing alongside his partner Jonathan Goldstein, and …

The Simpsons Cat Stevens

Watch The Simpsons Pay Homage to Cat Stevens

So far there have been 26 seasons of The Simpsons, and they never fail to come up with a clever “couch gag” in every episode — one of the many reasons why they’re still running strong. There have been art deco takes, spoofs on “The Harlem Shake” and Breaking Bad, and directorial debuts from Banksy and Don Hertzfeld. The newest addition to their reel? A very yellow take on Cat Stevens’ iconic 1970 album Tea For The Tillerman.

The clip sees The Simpsons replicating the album artwork while other Springfield residents act out a literal interpretation …

Mr-Bean-Snickers-Rowan-Atkinson

Mr. Bean Returns In New Snickers Ad

This was unexpected.

Seven years have passed since Mr. Bean’s Holiday, but the beloved character brought to life by Rowan Atkinson has finally returned thanks to the clever people at Snickers.

Snickers’ ‘You’re not yourself when you’re hungry’ campaign has been running for a while at this point, and much like the long-running ‘milk mustache’ ads of yesteryear many recent ads have relied on celebrity appearances to boost promotion. The latest, which tells the tale of ninjas trying to sneak up on their enemy in the dead of night, finds Mr. Bean proving once and for all that he …

Pussy Riot

Pussy Riot Will Appear on ‘House of Cards’

According to Baltimore’s City Paper, Pussy Riot members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina will be appearing on season three of House of Cards. It’s unclear how big of a role they will play in the TV show or if they are even representing themselves onscreen. Production team members have confirmed, however, that the two were on set last week to film.

Tolokonnikova and Alyokhina are perhaps the most prominent members of the Russian activist punk group. When giving a speech at Lincoln Center in New York back in May, Pussy Riot also took the time to meet with the …

Wu Tang Reunites

Wu-Tang Clan Reunites on ‘The Daily Show,’ Drops New Song

Despite the crazy year Wu-Tang Clan have had–from trying to sell a single album for over a million dollars to the whole penis-slicing incident–the nine living members set aside their busy schedules to reunite on prime television last night.

The group stopped by The Daily Show to chat with Jon Stewart about their upcoming album A Better Tomorrow and some of their best memories with ‘Ol Dirty Bastard (RIP). As they told Stewart, the record will drop this November. To prove they weren’t messing around, they performed “Ron O’Neal,” the record’s first single, live on the show with plenty of …

Angel Olsen

Watch Angel Olsen’s TV Debut on ‘Letterman’

It’s been four months since Angel Olsen‘s fantastic record Burn Your Fire For No Witness came out and not a week goes by that I don’t find myself listening to it in full. The only thing better than giving it a spin is hearing that material live. Thankfully the whole TV-watching world got a chance to experience that sound this week when Olsen stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman to perform “Hi-Five.”

The video is a good opportunity to see her singing style. It never ceases to amaze me how little she opens her mouth for some …

Twin Shadow

Watch Twin Shadow Perform “To The Top” on ‘Conan’

Back in April, Twin Shadow dropped a powerful new song titled “To The Top.” It’s a strong pop piece of ’80s foundation with clean vocals sung over it, but that was all he shared. There was no word of a new album, an EP, or anything. So when he stepped onstage on Conan last night, his presence was an appreciated surprise.

Twin Shadow performed “To The Top,” showing that the song upholds its sturdy structure live just as well as it does in the recorded version. It was performed in a circle with some gospel, giving it the

Conor Oberst CBS Live

Watch Conor Oberst Play Three Songs with Dawes on CBS

A week ago to the day, Conor Oberst released his new album Upside Down Mountain via Nonesuch. We’ve already heard some of that material live when he stopped by The Tonight Show, but now we get to hear a bit more. Oberst dropped by CBS This Morning over the weekend to play a few of the songs off the album: “Time Forgot,” “Hundreds Of Ways,” and “You Are Your Mother’s Child.”

If things look more familiar than usual, you’ve got good vision. Once again, Oberst is backed by Dawes. Earlier this year, Oberst and Dawes teamed up to release …

the Last Man on Earth

Will Forte is All Alone in ‘The Last Man on Earth’ Trailer

It looks like Fox is ready to get weird. The TV station will be picking up a new comedy series called The Last Man on Earth later this year which stars Will Forte and whose pilot was directed by the guys behind The Lego Movie, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Seth Cohen is also an executive producer. The show follows Phil Miller (Forte) who is literally the last man on Earth… making Forte the only star of the show. Yes, really.

Considering there’s only so much one person can do, we’ll see how this show pans out. Forte is, …

Watch Billy Joel and Jimmy Fallon Perform Together on ‘The Tonight Show’

It’s no secret that Jimmy Fallon books incredible acts for his show. He’s hung out with Springsteen, joked with Vedder, and had the President of the United States slow jam the news. But once again, Fallon became the giddy fan he is inside, this time for Billy Joel.

Joel performed “You May Be Right” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, where part-way through Fallon joined in with a James Brown impression. Look out for some forward singing, dancing, and sax playing. During the interview, Fallon and Joel sang The Lion King theme song as a two-man doo-wop group with …

Jimmy Fallon The Muppets

Watch Jimmy Fallon’s Farewell to Late Night with The Muppets

After five great, long, music-filled years, Jimmy Fallon stepped down from his role as the host of the Late Night only to step up to his new position as the host of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. With so many talented past guests and a house band like The Roots, the question on everyone’s mind was what would Fallon do for his farewell performance? Something, perfect, of course.

Fallon managed to get The Muppets to join him onstage for a goofy-but-serious cover of The Band’s “The Weight” before walking offstage and into his new set for The Tonight Show.
