A year ago, Adele predicted her George Michael do-over

Adele shocked Grammy viewers last night by stopping her George Michael tribute performance of "Fastlove" about a minute in, cursing, and then asking for a do-over, which she received.  But it turns out that Adele had predicted the whole incident -- kind of -- a year ago on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. As you may recall, last year, Adele's Grammy performance of her song "All I Ask" was marred by technical issues beyond her control.  Appearing shortly afterwards on Ellen, Adele responded to the host's question of whether or not she had wanted to start over by saying, "Next time…

'The Walking Dead' recap -- 'Rock in the Road'

(NEW YORK) -- The Walking Dead returned Sunday night, and just as the mid-season finale hinted in a wordless closing sequence back in December, gang Grimes is reunited and ready to rumble with Negan's Saviors.  Sunday night's premiere begins with Fr. Gabriel, who'd found his bravery of late, raiding Alexandria's food stores before stealing gas and a car, and driving off.  Rick's crew, meanwhile, is at the Hilltop colony, trying to convince the community's spineless "leader," Gregory, to get his folks to join Alexandria and take on Negan's army. Gregory, as wormy as ever, rebuffs them -- but to Rick and company's…

Melissa McCarthy returns to 'SNL' as Sean Spicer; Kellyanne Conway also skewered

(NEW YORK) -- Melissa McCarthy returned to Saturday Night Live this weekend to reprise her role as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, and as she did last week, she portrayed him as eccentric, short-tempered and disrespectful to journalists. Alec Baldwin also returned to SNL this weekend, marking his 17th time as the show's host, though he only portrayed President Donald Trump in one sketch. During the show's cold open, McCarthy's gum-chewing Spicer ruled over a press briefing, and again used props to explain a point to reporters -- at one point, using a male soldier doll, a white Barbie…
