KiD CuDi will make an appearance on IFC’s Comedy Bang! Bang! tomorrow night, but as it turns out, he’ll be sticking around a bit longer than the typical celebrity guest. Entertainment Weekly reveals that CuDi will be replacing longtime co-host and DJ Reggie Watts come July. Reggie will be moving on to the Late Late Show when James Corden becomes the permanent host next month. Check out a preview of CuDi’s guest spot above.
Last night while Pharrell was attending the Grammys and taking home statues for both his album G I R L and his monster hit “Happy”, he was also appearing simultaneously over on FOX with a cameo on a new episode of The Simpsons.

Here’s a very quick teaser for The Get Down a new show set in the bubbling Hip-Hop and Punk scenes of New York City during the 1970′s. This was around the time Hip-Hop was starting to make its way out of the housing projects of the Bronx and into the city’s clubs, The Ramones and other acts were inventing Punk at CBGB and I was being born. I find it to be an absolutely fascinatiing era in the city’s history and it should make a nice backdrop for a drama series.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
The Get Down will focus on 1970s New York — broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped — dying. (Watch the teaser trailer, above.) Consigned to rubble, a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are nothings and nobodies with no one to shelter them — except each other, armed only with verbal games, improvised dance steps, some magic markers and spray cans. From Bronx tenements, to the SoHo art scene; from CBGBs to Studio 54 and even the glass towers of the just-built World Trade Center, The Get Down is a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco — told through the lives and music of the South Bronx kids who changed the city, and the world … forever.
The show will be helmed by director Baz Luhrmann, whose style (The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge) is a bit glossy for the subject matter, but The Shield‘s Shawn Ryan is also involved so that’s encouraging. I’m here for this.
Jimmy Kimmel dropped a new edition of musicians reading mean tweets about themselves last night and it features Drake, Katy Perry, Wiz Khalifa, Sam Smith, Childish Gambino, Iggy Azaela, Arianna Grande and many others. Most of these are prettty funny, but I’m sure they could’ve found a meaner tweet for Drake to read.
An animated Action Bronson made a guest appearance on last night’s episode of Lucas Bros. Moving Co. on FXX’s Animation Domination. I didn’t see the whole episode, but judging from these short outtakes I take it he played a bossed up taco truck proprietor who puts the twins under pressure. I don’t regularly watch this show, but I’ve caught it a couple of times and these kids always bring the funny. I need to see this full episode immediately.

I only occaisonaly watch IFC’s Comedy Bang! Bang!, but when I saw that ScHoolBoy Q was scheduled as a guest for this new season I was sort of curious about how he was going to pull it off. Not that Q isn’t a funny dude, but guests on this show are usually comedians and actors and the comedy depends mostly on timing and delivery. As it turns out, he did pretty well. Up top watch a clip of him telling host Scott Aukerman about his endorsement deal with the letter “Q”.
LOL, Nancy Grace is the absolute worst. She’s a total fucking caricature of everything that is wrong with 24 hour cable news. All Tauheed had to tell her was: alcohol. That should have been the answer to every single question she posed. Well what about alcohol? Because you can swap alcohol for weed in every scenario she mentioned and argue that alcohol shouldn’t be legal either.
