James Adomian voices Kyle Kinane, who voices Comedy Central

The folks over at Comedy Central alerted us today that stand-up comedian Kyle Kinane has begun providing voice-overs for the cable channel. Great news!

Onion News Network writers on the blurry line between ridiculously real TV news and IFC parody

One of the more fascinating features of IFC’s Onion News Network is how this fake parody of TV news relies heavily on people with real experience as anchors and reporters on local and cable news programs.

SNL #37.6 RECAP: Host Emma Stone, musical guest Coldplay

Who knows why Saturday Night Live was so quick to bring Emma Stone back for a second round of hosting duties, when the young actress had nothing to plug and didn’t exactly tear the roof off the place last fall. Hmmm. Must be trying to connect with the kids. Let’s recap! We open cold with yet another Republican presidential candidate debate, because they keep on forcing them upon us in real life — two televised forums this past week, in fact! And, well, Texas Gov. Rick Perry endured his instant debate classic “oops” moment during the actual debate with...
