Hell hath no fury like a fired-up Billy Eichner. The 35-year-old comedian returns tonight for a third season of Fuse’s fun-and-frenetic game show from Funny or Die Billy on the Street, in which he tests New Yorkers’ pop culture knowledge at a turbo pace and very loud volume. What kind of manic antics can you expect to see from Eichner, who also guest-stars as the easily enraged Craig on Parks and Recreation? Below, he gives EW 11 teases for the upcoming 10 episodes, which air Wednesdays at 11 p.m. READ FULL STORY

Saturday Night Live has lined up its next three host/musical guest combos — a group of returning favorites that includes perennial favorites like John Goodman, Jimmy Fallon, and Justin Timberlake.
Anchorman 2 star Paul Rudd will host for the third time Dec. 7, with returning musical guest One Direction. Rudd last appeared on SNL in 2010, hosting with musical guest Paul McCartney; the British boy band first appeared on SNL in 2012. Their next album, Midnight Memories, drops Nov. 25.
On Dec. 14, the show will welcome back host John Goodman — who has hosted the sketch show 12 times already, albeit not since 2001. (Time capsule alert: The musical guest on Goodman’s last show was Ja Rule.) This time around, he’ll be joined by Grammy-winning band Kings of Leon, making their third SNL appearance. Goodman currently stars on Alpha House, Amazon’s first scripted series. The Kings’ latest album, Mechanical Bull, was released Sept. 24.
And Dec. 21′s special Christmas episode will feature a pair of ringers: Host Jimmy Fallon and musical guest Justin Timberlake. Fallon, a former SNL cast member, currently hosts NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and will take over The Tonight Show on Feb. 17. Though he has hosted SNL only once before (in 2011), he’s made several cameo appearances since leaving the show in 2004. Timberlake, meanwhile, will make his fifth appearance as musical guest — and his second in 2013 alone. Both he and Fallon have won the Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for hosting SNL in the past. Earlier this year, the pair also collaborated for a special Late Night event called “Timberweek,” which featured new Timberlake sketches, performances, and/or interviews on five consecutive episodes.

Late last year, news broke that The Simpsons were going to turn a decades-old spec script written by Judd Apatow into an episode. As it turns out, the A-list comedy writer-director-producer is collaborating with the animated series in front of the microphone as well. EW has learned that a different episode — which was already known to boast Will Arnett as a guest star — features the voices of Apatow, frequent collaborators Leslie Mann, Paul Rudd, and Seth Rogen, plus Channing Tatum and… Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford.
