The current season of Key & Peele will be its final one. The duo behind the hit Comedy Central sketch show have announced that after the conclusion of its fifth season, they will be quitting the Peabody Award-winning show to pursue other projects. Both of them have a number of movies in the works. Keegan-Michael Key told The Wrap,
This is our final season–and it’s not because of Comedy Central, it’s us. It was just time for us to explore other things, together and apart. I compare it to Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. We might make a movie and then do our own thing for three years and then come back and do another movie. I’m thinking we could do that every three years–take a year, go bang out a movie. That’s the plan right now.
TLC is ending its long-running series about the Duggar family. The network released a statement today, announcing that they were canceling the popular reality show 19 Kids and Counting, which followed the Duggar family, after reports surfaced that the eldest son, Josh, had molested several children—including his own sisters—as a teen. The statement from the network said:
After thoughtful consideration, TLC and the Duggar family have decided to not move forward with 19 Kids and Counting. The show will no longer appear on the air. The recent attention around the Duggars has sparked a critical and important conversation about child protection.
However, TLC also said it was working with advocacy groups RAINN and Darkness to Light and will air a special about abuse featuring two of the victims in the Duggar family. “TLC will work closely with both groups and with the Duggar family on a one-hour documentary that will include Jill and Jessa and other survivors and families that have been affected by abuse.” In their own statement, the Duggars said, "It is our prayer that the painful situation our family went through many years ago can point people toward faith in God and help others who also have lived through similar dark situations to find help, hope and healing, as well."

Jimmy Fallon got surprisingly sentimental on the Tonight Show last night. The host returned to the late night show after two weeks off, recovering from a terrible injury in which his finger was almost ripped off his hand. Fallon explained he had to spend 10 days in the ICU following a six hour surgery to save his finger, which was seriously injured when his ring caught the side of a counter after he tripped in his home. While explaining the ordeal, Fallon said that in addition to watching movies and reality TV during his recovery, he read the acclaimed book by Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning, which had a profound effect on him.
This is the meaning of my life. I belong on TV. I should be talking to people who are watching, who are either in an ICU—wherever you are, at home—if anyone is suffering at all, this is my job. I’m here to make you laugh. I’m here to make you have a good time … That’s my job. That’s why I’m here. I want to spread the love.
