Perry was an energetic karaoke companion: she shouted instructions to Corden like a drill sergeant – "body roll!" "stank face!" "let's go to Ibiza!" "come out raging!"– and »

Donald Trump has desecrated pretty much every American institution he's been able to get his greasy toddler paws on. (We will never be investigated by the FBI the same way again). But Saturday Night Live, an institution that had suffered from a few shaky years in recent times, came out of its first Season of the Beast looking better than ever. Since coming back on the air last October, the sketch show had its highest ratings in over 20 years and more sweet sweet, sweet cultural relevance than it's had since »

'Twin Peaks' Season Premiere Recap: Into the Black

21 May 2017 9:44 PM, PDT

It's happening again.

It's the first time we've see the Twin Peaks logo and heard the opening notes of Angelo Badalamenti's unforgettable theme song in 25 years. When it happens, we're looking right at the face of Laura Palmer. Director David Lynch and his co-creator and co-writer Mark Frost could have chosen pretty much any image to pair with the kick-off of the show's almost manically anticipated return.
