1. Julia Louis-Dreyfus returns to “Saturday Night Live” with “fondish” memories.

The funny woman behind Emmy Award-nominated “Veep” and that other show about nothing, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, will return to the stage where her career got started to host “Saturday Night Live” April 16. The actress also recently told The New York Times she looks back on the years starring on the show in the 1980s “fondish-ly” as it was a “very sexist” environment.

2. AMC decides not to allow texting in theaters after all.

Was it all that patron feedback, or was it the press release straight from Alamo Drafthouse founder and CEO Tim League that swayed AMC Theaters to rescind their proposal of allowing texting in movie theaters after saying asking guests to refrain is like asking them to “please cut off your left arm above the elbow”? The company released a statement Friday saying, “You spoke. We listened,” and promising to keep the movies phone free.

3. “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” returns.

Today’s the day strong females and all other “Kimmy Schmidt” fans unite in binge-watching the Netflix series’ second season, which was released today. If you worked hard you could watch the first season again this weekend in preparation, or you can just read the best lines here.
