Don’t Trust the B star Krysten Ritter is leading a new NBC series called Mission Control where she’ll play a NASA engineer in 1965.

Kristen Wiig Leaves Saturday Night Live In an Emotional Goodbye

What’s been rumor for a while now has finally been confirmed — after seven seasons on NBC‘s Saturday Night Live, Kristen Wiig is moving on. Last year, the superstar comedian proved she could draw an audience beyond the late-night institution with her script for and performance in Bridesmaids, the former of which got her an Oscar nomination. So, yes — it will be sad to see Wiig’s brand of demented but lovable characters gone from Saturday nights. But she’s going to be just fine. That doesn’t mean that some of us, including Wiig, didn’t cry about it, though.

Amy Poehler Has Some Great Ideas For New TV Shows, You Guys [Video]

Amy Poehler was presented with the Variety Power of Comedy Award and took the opportunity during her acceptance speech to pitch a few new shows to television executives. Because she has real power now, everyone. You know, as the second winner of this award and the first women in history. But mostly, she’s just incredibly funny while also being really touching about the gathering’s real purpose — raising money for the Noreen Fraser Foundation, which supports fundraising for women’s cancer research. Will Ferrell presented the award to Poehler, and then left with the gentleman who brought the actual award onstage after making out with him. (If someone can tell me who that guy is, I’ll happily fix the post and include his name. He is not a piece of meat, after all.)
