Chris Hemsworth Fails At 'Dirty Dancing' Highlights ‘SNL’ Promo (Watch)

March 4th, 2015 6:08pm EST
Chris Hemsworth Dirty Dancing Fail
Chris Hemsworth is perhaps best known as the actor that plays the powerful Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Thor's superhuman strength is clearly make believe, it's not unfair to expect that Hemsworth himself should be able to handle at least a couple strong man tactics, right?

Well, if the new hilarious promo clips for this week's Saturday Night Live are any indication, then maybe not. SNL's own Kate McKinnon found out the hard way when she asked this week's host to lift her up in the air "Dirty Dancing" style.

You can watch the video for yourself below, but it turns out tha...

Oprah Closing Harpo Studios, 200 Employees To Lose Jobs
Oprah Winfrey is moving her business to Hollywood, much to the chargin of 200 of her employees at Chicago-based Harpo Studios.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Winfrey will relocate all of her Chicago-produced shows to her Oprah Winfrey Network headquarters in Los Angeles, effectively shutting down Harpo Studios. Winfrey apparently broke the news in person to her staff in Chicago this past Tuesday. The move comes two months after Winfrey moved her growing cable network into a new space in West Hollywood.

The Hollywood Reporter interviewed Winfrey on the move.

"[Chicago has] bee...

'Suits': Gabriel Macht Talks Donna, Directing And Continuing To Grow

'Suits': Gabriel Macht Talks Donna, Directing And Continuing To
Season four of Suits has been a big one for Gabriel Macht. As Harvey Specter, the lawyer that everyone wishes we had, he continues to add more nuances to an already complex and compelling character. We've seen more growth for Harvey this season than in any other, from an actor who somehow keeps getting better even though he was already one of the best on television.

Then there's the fact that he directed the midseason premiere like he'd been behind the camera for ages. The return of his father to the show, plus we're about to introduce an important member of Harvey's family. And oh yeah, t...

'Justified' Recap And Review: 'The Hunt' - One Marshal And A Baby

March 4th, 2015 10:06am EST
Justified
Remember when Raylan Givens became a father? The baby Givens has been understandably overlooked for most of the final season of Justified, but Willa is front and center in "The Hunt," along with her mother Winona (a returning Natalie Zea) and oh yeah, all those bad guys we're still trying to find.

Picking up where last week's episode left off, Raylan, Rachel, Tim and associates are still looking for the wounded Ty Walker (Garret Dillahunt), who isn't going to get any help from Markham or surviving henchman Seabass (Scott Grimes), whom Markham bribes to abandon his former CO.

But Raylan ba...

'New Girl' Recap: 'Walk Of Shame'

March 4th, 2015 9:20am EST
New Girl - Walk Of Shame
“We are sluts, and we are clowns, but we are not losers!”

A few episodes ago, “New Girl” got away with the typical TV wackiness of a lost wedding ring by not really being about the ring. In this episode, Jess and Cece’s titular “Walk of Shame” involved a host of ridiculous indignities. This trope is not as common as the “stalling for lost item” routine, but it is at least just as wacky. There were points to be made with the girls’ predicament, but they did not overcome the fact that the mess they were in was gradually making less and less sense.

Jess and Cece’s feminist justifications ...

'The Voice' Recap: 'Blind Auditions, Part 4' - Blake Wants Everyone

'The Voice' Recap: 'Season 8 Blind Auditions, Part 4' - Blake Wa
The last full night of auditions on The Voice was Tuesday, and naturally it was a busy one. The superstar coaches reached the phase where they got pickier with their few remaining button pushes - except for Blake Shelton, who turned his chair for a whopping nine of the fifteen singers who crossed the stage.

Meanwhile, Pharrell found himself in dogfights with Adam and Christina that were markedly different from his earlier successes, and everyone added valuable artists to their teams. Who went where and who do we think has the early advantage? Read on.

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Midseason Premiere Recap: Oh, The Inhumanity!

March 4th, 2015 8:52am EST
'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Midseason Premiere Recap: Oh, The Inhum
Last season, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." started out a little so-so. Then, halfway through the season, HYDRA happened, and the show rocketed into an incredible action series.

This season, "Agents" has been, again, a little iffy. Solid in some parts, feeble in others. But now we've got Inhumans, and the Inhumans are definitely Season Two's HYDRA moment. Everything from now on should be comic book bliss.

Guess what? It totally is.

After months of playing coy with the Inhumans, "Agents" gives us all the Inhumanity we can handle. No new characters yet- we're sticking with the four core Inhuman ...

'Pretty Little Liars' Season 5, Episode 22 Recap: [SPOILER] Hann
Right where the last episode left off, Spencer is still stuck in London. She finds peace of mind hanging with her sister's roommate, Colin, and doing normal 18-year-old Londoner things, like drinking a "pint" in a pub. Drawn to him, Spencer kisses Colin and who knows what else as the screen fades away. The feels fade away quick when she has to return home to be with the Liars.

Hanna finds out that the cops are targeting her for Mona's murder. Alison is offered a plea bargain to name Hanna as an accomplice, and Hanna starts to lose her mind. She confides in her mom and while she tries to fi...

'Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills': Lisa Rinna Bitch Slaps Kim

March 4th, 2015 8:15am EST
'Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills' Season 5 Episode 16: Lisa Rin
She’s been under the radar for too long.

In the past three months, Lisa Rinna has gone from reserved, newbie housewife to being the agreeable, positive, voice of reason to the concerned, pensive listener/advice giver. Although her down-to-earth demeanor has made her a fan favorite, it hasn’t made her a breakout star, as is someone like badass Brandi.

No one joins this franchise to be a second banana housewife, or to paraphrase Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing, “No one puts Lisa R. in a corner.”

With the season coming shortly to an end, Lisa had to make a name for herself. At a group dinne...

'Sirens' Review: 'Let Pythons Be Pythons' - Nobody Likes A Snake

March 4th, 2015 8:04am EST
'Sirens' Review: 'Let Pythons Be Pythons' - Nobody Likes A Snake
If you couldn't tell from the title, this week's episode of Sirens involves a python. "Let Pythons Be Pythons" is about two different situations that get out of control - unfortunately, though, they're two stories that you know pretty well by now, so what results is an installment that's good for some understanding laughs but very much follows the numbers.

Why the heck is Brian narrating everything? Apparently he thinks he needs to dictate his memoirs. Everyone else thinks he's just annoying, and for once, we're going to have to agree with them. At least he doesn't start referring to himse...
