Norm Macdonald’s new Netflix talk show is finally set to make its debut and the streaming service has unveiled a profanity-filled first look at the series.
In the preview for Norm Macdonald Has a Show the comedian sits down with a long list of stars, including Drew Barrymore, David Letterman, Jane Fonda, David Spade, Chevy Chase, M. Night Shyamalan, Michael Keaton, and Lorne Michaels.
Along with his sidekick Adam Eget, the Saturday Night Live alum asks such probing questions as “Do you miss cocaine?” to Barrymore and “Have you been thinking about your mortality a lot lately?” to Letterman. In between talking strip clubs with Judge Judy and Chase quipping that he “f—ed” Bob Dylan, there are plenty of clumsy on-set mishaps to enjoy.
First announced in March, series is based on his podcast/web series Norm Macdonald Live and is set to debut on Sept. 14.
EW.com gives us the good news that Santa Clarita Diet will premiere season 2 next month!
Hungry for more, um, flesh? There’s not long to wait; Netflix has set the season 2 premiere date for Santa Clarita Diet for late March.
When the flesh-eating zombie horror-comedy returns March 23, we find Joel (Timothy Olyphant) and Sheila (Drew Barrymore) attempting to maintain a some kind of normalcy in their lives while hiding the fact that people are going missing in the Californian suburb as Sheila feeds her need for blood and guts and they search for a cure for the zombie virus.
The new season also adds some recurring new faces and a bunch of guest stars, including Joel McHale, Gerald McRaney, Zachary Knighton, and Maggie Lawson. McHale and Lawson step into the shoes of Chris and Christa, a successful, type-A married realtor couple who expose Joel and Sheila’s competitive streak. Castle and This Is Us star Gerald McRaney also joins the cast as Ed Thune, a retired army colonel Joel finds intimidating, while Zachary Knighton plays a laid-back Serbian Californian on a ruthless quest to uncover the truth about the undead. Check out EW’s first look at the Rolodex of guest stars here.
The first season of Santa Clarita Diet is available to stream on Netflix now before the second season drops on March 23.
This week Drew did a guest appearance on Ellen to talk about her new season of Santa Clarita Diet … and a whole lot more!
Drew Barrymore Recreates Her Younger Self
The eternally youthful Drew Barrymore went back in time after she agreed to let Ellen dress her up in a fabulous outfit from when she was 7 years old.
Drew Barrymore Is Done with Dating Apps
According to an Australian tabloid, Ellen is helping Drew Barrymore find a girlfriend, but in reality, Drew isn’t going to Ellen for a potential mate, but a popular dating app.
Drew Barrymore was honored at the annual Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles Once Upon A Time Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday night, and ET’s Lauren Zima caught up with her on the red carpet, where she opened up about her love of Halloween and the challenges of co-parenting.
So how does Barrymore make it work as a newly single mom-of-two? “Plans,” she explains. “Constant plans. We, as a family, have three dates for this Halloween.”
Between all the planning and coordinating with her ex-husband Will Kopelman’s family — the couple’s divorce was finalized in August after four years of marriage — Barrymore says she feels honored for the continued love and acceptance from her children’s paternal grandmother. “[It] means the world to me,” she says.
Still, the 41-year-old actress and producer is looking forward to the hectic Halloween in front of her. “It’s like the best day ever,” she gushes. “It’s the only day that’s acceptable and not totally creepy to wear a mask, so God bless Halloween! I love it. I get to be an anonymous parent that night, so I’m into that!”
Speaking of dressing up, Barrymore looked stunning in a black, off-the-shoulder Elizabeth Kennedy New York dress, with her hair swept back in a loose braid.
But with the busy demands of motherhood and entrepreneurship — Barrymore has her own makeup line, Flower Beauty, as well as her own production company, Flower Films — the star says she saves getting made up for special occasions these days.
“I have a motto, ‘A smile is better than any lipstick you’re ever going to buy,'” she says. “So if I can be just me every day of my life and have the makeup moment feel special or like I’m carving something out of my time, or I’m making an effort to show someone in a meeting or a dinner that I’ve made the effort — it feels special. But every day is not like that.”
That explains some of the stellar makeup-free looks the How To Be Single producer has been posting to her Instagram lately!
Barrymore was honored at the Children’s Hospital gala with the Courage to Care award, given to those who champion children’s welfare-related causes. She posted a photo of her award to Instagram on Sunday, writing that the honor “will just make me work harder to earn it!”
But that wasn’t all! Barrymore also got to fangirl over fellow Children’s Hospital volunteer, Katy Perry, who performed at the gala.
“Oh yeah! And this happened!!!,” she wrote on Instagram. “@katyperry my fellow @childrensla representative tonight at the gala!!! #loveher #roar me and my daughters listen to her with such joy!”
Plus, the actress had a very special date for the gala: 13-year-old Madison Elizondo. Barrymore met Elizondo, who has been treated frequently at the hospital, last year, and the two formed a friendship. ET can exclusively reveal that Barrymore gave her pal the full red-carpet treatment Saturday night! Elizondo was styled by Barrymore’s personal stylist, and the actress’ team also did her nails and makeup.

Even an accomplished actress like Drew Barrymore has some box office blunders she’d rather forget.
During Monday night’s round of “Plead the Fifth” on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, the Golden Globe winner told the late-night show host which movie in her filmography she wasn’t too keen about.
“Tell me one film you’ve done that you can now say at this late date that you were just not that into,” Cohen asked while giving a subtle nod to the 40-year-old mother’s 2009 film.
With slight hesitation, Barrymore offered a diplomatic answer. “Well, I wish that film Bad Girls was more bad. I was like, ‘Lets be like dudes, but like women, but like dudes,” she said of the poorly-received 1994 film she starred in with Andie MacDowell and Dermot Mulroney.
A good sport, Barrymore continued to answer Cohen’s juicy questions without objection.
“Christian Bale said in an interview that the two of you went on a date as teens and you never called him back. He never heard from you again,” Cohen posed to Barrymore. “Why did you never call him back?”
“I don’t know! He was so nice,” she replied. “I wasn’t like super boy crazy. I had a lot of fish to fry, like I had big problems in my like world for many years like in good ways—things you gotta overcome…boys is like very secondary.”
As for another Hollywood star that became her right-hand man for just one year of her life, her ex-husband Tom Green, she explained to Cohen her outlook on their short-lived relationship from 2001.
“Tom Green I think is a very unique human being we all know that as he dangles mice in his mouth,” she said of the eccentric comedian who hosted several late-night talk shows on MTV in the early 2000s.
“I think that he did something before anyone else did. I think that he was a real pioneer. There was no social media. There was no reality TV and I have to say I gave him a loit of credit as a creative person onlooking that he was a first and I do appreciate that about him,” she said.
A round of applause to the makeup mogul for making it through the entire round without ever pleading the fifth. We appreciate your honesty, Drew.
Drew Barrymore’s wild child days are long gone, but being a mom is way more fun anyway!
“I just love having a family,” the 40-year-old mother of two told E! News exclusively at the launch of her curated holiday collection for Shutterfly. “I love my kids—I feel so blessed. I feel like I’ve never been better as a person [than I am] through my family.”
Drew and husband Will Kopelman are the proud parents of two little girls: Olive, 3, and Frankie, 19 months. The actress, entrepreneur and DIY mama realizes she’s lucky to have a fantastic extended family, too, telling E! News, “I love my in-laws. It’s like I’m defying the clichés because we’re all so close.”
That’s not to say, though, that life is always picture-perfect for this settled-down gal. Drew recently opened up about her struggle with postpartum depression. “I wasn’t really trying to sort of over-open myself up to anything, but I was just being honest about what my own little journey was,” she told E! News exclusively. “The outpour[ing] of women coming up to me and relating was really extraordinary.”
Motherhood “is en emotional roller coaster,” Drew explained. “You just care so much about how to be the best mom, the perfect mom—even though there’s no such thing as perfection, you expect that of yourself.”
Of course, any hardships that come with being a parent are well worth it for Drew. “Being a mom is everything in the world,” she said. “I feel like I was born the day my kids were, and everything in life was like an experiment to learn to apply to them.”
Drew opens up a lot more about the highs and lows of motherhood, marriage and what she’s getting Olive and Frankie for the holidays in the video above.
The Daily Mail gives us a clip of Drew’s appearance on This Morning from Monday!
Drew Barrymore talked about her troublesome childhood in an interview with This Morning on Monday.
The 40-year-old was on the show to promote her memoirs, Wildflower, and told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that she burned out at a young age.
She said: ‘I had a mid-life crisis at 25. I write about it in a chapter, called Outward Bound, which was fitting when you start work at 11 months old.
‘At 14, I got emancipated. I walked out of the courts an adult.
‘I had to go and find my first apartment and that chapter was so fun for me to write because I didn’t know you had to throw take-out cartons in the trash.’
She added: ‘Laundry saved my life. I didn’t understand it. I poured the bleach directly on the jeans and they looked like disintegrated dalmatians.
‘I was like, am I going to crumble and wear disintegrated jeans or figure this out. I’m a master of laundry.’
Drew had a troubled past and famously had her first drink at nine years of age, began smoking pot at 10, and took cocaine at 12, but she says becoming a mother has brought her contentment.
Married to Will Kopelman, 38, they are parents to Olive, three and Frankie, one.
‘I put pressure on myself with everything,’ she said. ‘But the stakes are higher when it comes to children.
‘I have two girls, which is an amazing thing. I have to raise great women.’
Phillip said: ‘Now it seems as though you have everything together.’
But Drew, who looked lovely in a brown kaftan dress and statement necklace, giggled and said: ‘If I have fooled you to think that, then I have done something so right. It’s such a compliment.
‘As a mother, you always wonder how you can do things better. You just want to do everything perfectly for your kids.
‘I couldn’t be happier or more grateful for where my life is at. It’s like a cartoon behind the scenes, of how to keep it all in place.’
