'Trainwreck' director Judd Apatow channels Bill Cosby on 'The Tonight Show'

"Trainwreck" director Judd Apatow has been a relentless critic of Bill Cosby's since the rape allegations resurfaced in the media. During a promotional appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon," Apatow got to simultaneously return to his stand-up comedy roots while skewering The Cos with a cruel and reasonably accurate impression (and one that also calls back to the punchline from Eddie Murphy's Cosby routine from "Eddie Murphy Raw"). It comes at about the 2:35 minute mark of this clip, after he first jokes about his own modest level of fame and what it's like to live in a house with three women:

Ask Alan, Episode 12: 'X-Files' fears, and which characters went from worst to best?

Ask Alan, Episode 12: 'X-Files' fears, and which characters went from worst to best?

And what genres are due for a revival?

Due to a few technical issues, we're a day late with the latest installment of Ask Alan, where I take your questions about this thing we call TV.

In today's video, I talk about my hopes and fears for "The X-Files" miniseries, identify characters (like Britta on "Community") who went from the worst part of a show to the best, and pick a few mostly-dormant TV genres I'd like to see revived.

As always, you can send questions — the more concisely-worded, the better — to askalan@hitfix.com.

LeBron James, dirty jokes, & Amy Schumer's genius: The 'Trainwreck' spoiler review

A terrific collaboration between the Comedy Central star and director Judd Apatow

We have plenty of movie coverage here at HitFix — including Drew's rave review of this film from SXSW — but as happens when I see a film relatively early in its run, and particularly one like "Trainwreck" with a fair amount of crossover with what I cover in TV, I like to offer up a few of my thoughts, as well as a place for people who have seen the film to start discussing it.

Again, this review is designed for people who've already seen "Trainwreck," and thus will have plenty of spoilers, coming up just as soon as we split the check...
