ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) -- Kevin Hart is looking forward to 2018. After a roller coaster of a year that included a cheating scandal and the birth of his son, Kenzo, Hart explains that he's focused on being a better man next year.

In an interview with Extra, Mario Lopez's daughter Gia asked the comedian what he would like Santa to bring him for the holiday and if he’s been naughty or nice.

“That's definitely a tough question for Kevin Hart right now," Hart said, leaning down towards the young girl as she holds the mic. "It was a tough year for me. I had some bumps in the road but the good thing is you take steps backwards to take steps great forwards."

Kevin added, "I recovered from some not-nice times, now, what I basically want is for Santa to know now, I'm doing good and I'm doing better -- I’m a good guy.”

As previously reported, Hart became the target of an alleged sex extortion scandal in September.

The actor went on Instagram to apologize to his wife and kids for an unspecified indiscretion. His management released a statement to ABC News the next day, saying Hart was a victim of extortion, but declined to provide details, citing an ongoing investigation.

NBC/Will Heath

(NEW YORK) -- Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" anchors, Colin Jost and Michael Che, have been tapped as head writers, the show announced on Tuesday.

Jost and Che -- who took over the "Weekend Update" desk in 2014 -- join current head writers Kent Sublette and Bryan Tucker, who replaced Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider. Kelly and Schneider left the Saturday night staple for their own Comedy Central series, The Other Two.

Jost, a four-time Writers Guild of America Award-winner and Peabody Award recipient, started out as a writer on the sketch comedy show in 2005. He previously served as SNL head writer -- taking over for Seth Meyers in 2012 -- but stepped down in 2015 to focus his attention on "Weekend Update."

Che, who appeared on Comedy Central's The Daily Show before joining SNL in 2013, made Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch list and Rolling Stone’s 50 Funniest People the same year. His addition makes him the first person of color to be a head writer on SNL.

Also on Tuesday, SNL named Sudi Green and Fran Gillespie as writing supervisors.

NetflixThe Punisher is locked and re-loaded: the Marvel Netflix show about the vigilante superhero has been renewed for a second season.

The streaming service made the announcement on the show's Facebook page on Tuesday with a graphic of a skull -- the hero's logo -- and the legend: "He's just getting started. The Punisher will return for Season 2."

The shoot-em-up series stars Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle -- a Special Forces Marine who takes brutal revenge on the men who murdered his family, and just about every other criminal he comes across.

The character first appeared on the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man in 1974, but the fan favorite soon spawned his own books. Bernthal debuted his bruising portrayal of Castle in Season 2 of Daredevil on Netflix.

A season-two premiere date has yet to be announced.

For his part, Bernthal is ready. He tweeted: "Semper Fi. Let's. Do. This."

Marvel, like ABC, is owned by Disney.

Disney(LOW EARTH ORBIT) -- Well, that's one way to beat the long movie lines.  In our galaxy -- but still relatively far, far away -- astronauts aboard the International Space Station will join fans on Earth and watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

“[I] can confirm the crew will be able to watch it on orbit,” NASA Public Affairs Officer Dan Huot told ABC Radio, though he doesn't have a "definitive timeline" as to when it will take place. "They typically get movies as digital files and can play them back on a laptop or a standard projector that is currently aboard," he explains of the astronauts.

The station actually has hundreds of movies in its onboard library, including sci-fi hits like Gravity and TV's Firefly, and others, which the explorers can watch during down time. It's not known how the astronauts are getting their hands on the latest Star Wars film, but the website Inverse speculates it could be sent inside a SpaceX dragon resupply capsule that is scheduled to blast off Friday -- which, incidentally, is also the release date for The Last Jedi.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is owned by Disney, parent company of ABC News.

Photo by 20th Century-Fox/Getty Images(WASHINGTON D.C.) -- Just as millions of fans are partaking in their annual Christmas tradition of watching the movie, the Library of Congress has announced its adding Die Hard to the National Film Registry

In addition to the the 1988 Bruce Willis hit, 1941's Disney classic Dumbo got the nod, as did two movies from director Richard Donner: 1978's Superman, and 1985's The Goonies.  Also making the cut are modern favorites Field of Dreams and Memento, and older classics like comedy-drama Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, from 1967, and the 1947 drama Gentleman's Agreement.

As always, some of the movies set for preservation aren't narrative films, but rather early examples of the medium, like 1905's Interior New York Subway, 14th Street to 42nd Street.

Films added to the National Film Registry are selected for their artistic, social, or cultural significance. 

Here are this year's 25 entries:

Ace in the Hole (aka Big Carnival) (1951)

Terence Patrick ©2017 CBS Broadcasting, Inc. All Rights Reserved(LOS ANGELES) -- To the confusion of regular Late Late Show viewers and the joy of One Direction fans, the band's Harry Styles hosted Tuesday night's show -- filling in at the last minute for host James Corden, whose wife, Julia, gave birth to a baby girl just half-an-hour earlier.

"You may be wondering why I'm hosting tonight," said Styles before joking, "And yes, you are right -- President [Donald] Trump finally got sick of James' jokes and deported him back to England."

"I am, of course, kidding," Harry continued. "Actually, I have some great news...just half-an-hour ago, James and his wife Jules had a beautiful baby girl."

“I have to be very honest, it’s not exactly how I saw my day panning out,” the 23-year-old pop superstar later quipped. “I was [sitting] at home two hours ago…and I got the call that Jules was going into labor. So, James naturally called the funniest guy he knew… and he wasn’t around.”

Harry went on to deliver Corden’s usual monologue, staring off with a joke about President Trump announcing on Monday that he wanted to send astronauts back to the Moon for the first time in 45 years.

“Trump was very startled when [first lady] Melania [Trump] raised her hand and yelled, ‘I’LL GO!” added Harry.

The “Sign of the Times” singer then noted how in the past three months, airlines earned a record $1.2 billion in excess baggage fees.

“But they only received half the money,” he continued. “The other half, they think it could be in Cleveland or Omaha or somewhere.”

Styles also addressed the lip-lock he and Corden shared during the all-star Christmas Carpool Karaoke, which aired on Monday’s Late Late Show.

“I’d like to take an opportunity to announce that we will also be having a baby,” he joked.

NBC UniversalOn Tuesday’s episode of The Voice, the eight artists who performed Monday learned that Team Blake Shelton's Keisha Renee; Team Adam Levine's Adam Cunningham; and Davon Fleming and Noah Mac -- both from Team Jennifer Hudson -- were sent home.

Cunningham and Mac were eliminated on a one-hour results show. They lost an "Instant Save" vote to Team Blake’s Red Marlow.

Prior to the vote, Marlow, Cunningham and Mac sang for an opportunity to be saved by the viewers. Marlow performed Alabama’s “Dixieland Delight,” Cunningham covered “Here’s a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)” by Travis Tritt and Mac tackled Harry Styles’ “Sign of the Times.”

There are now four artists remaining in the competition: Addison is Team Adam’s last remaining member, along with Team Miley’s Brooke Simpson and Marlow and Chloe Kohanski, from Team Blake. There are no artists left on Team Jennifer.

The results show also featured former Voice contestants previewing “It’s Time,” from Neon Dreams, their revue at Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Café, as well as X Ambassadors, Machine Gun Kelly and Bebe Rexha with their latest single “Home,” and Jennifer Hudson premiering her new song, “Burden Down.”

The Voice returns Monday night at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

Maarten de Boer/2016 Sundance Film Festival Getty Images Portrait Studio(LOS ANGELES) -- Creed 2 has officially found its director.

According to Variety, Warner Bros. has tapped up-and-coming director Steven Caple, Jr. for the Michael B. Jordan-headlining film.  Caple's previous credits include last year's film The Land, and the TV series Class.

Ryan Coogler, who directed Creed, was initially expected to direct the sequel, but instead is in talks to come on as an executive producer while he wraps up his current film, Black Panther. Producer and co-star Sylvester Stallone was reportedly also considering directing, but according to Variety's sources, he decided against it after talking it over with Jordan and the movie's execs.

Jordan took to Twitter to share the Creed 2 update, writing, "Excited for Coogler to hand over the reins to Steven Caple, Jr. - our director for Creed 2! Can’t wait to bring you guys the next chapter of our story ... coming at you November 2018."

The upcoming film will follow Jordan's character, Adonis Creed, as he deals with his new-found fame, family drama, and his pursuit to become the champ.

In addition to Jordan and Stallone, Thor: Ragnarok star Tessa Thompson has also been confirmed for the sequel, reprising her role as Bianca.

Creed 2 is set to hit theaters on November 21, 2018.

Disney(NEW YORK) -- The reviews have started trickling in for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and the eighth chapter in the Skywalker saga that began with 1977's Star Wars is getting an overwhelmingly positive response. 

The Tomatometer is strong with this one: The Last Jedi is currently hovering around 94% on aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.

While it remains to be seen what the fans think, one fan -- Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill -- tells ABC's Peter Travers he's very pleased with director Rian Johnson's film. 

"It has all these elements: there's suspense, and all the creatures, and the character relationships, and Benicio del Toro! Oh my gosh! And Laura Dern! It's just wonderful to see it put all together," Hamill says.

In the closing moments of The Force Awakens, Luke was finally found in self-exile by a powerful Force user, Daisy Ridley's Rey. The Last Jedi follows her training under a cautious Luke, while his fallen student -- and nephew -- Kylo Ren comes to terms with murdering his father, Han Solo, in The Force Awakens. This time, we learn more about the alien who showed him the dark side: the evil First Order's Supreme Leader Snoke. 

"To tell you the truth, there's so much in it!" Hamill enthuses about the film. "It's the longest Star Wars film ever at two and a half hours, but it doesn't feel that way. I remember when I first saw The Godfather, I could not believe it was as long as it was. I was never bored, or shifting in my seat. It just, it's like a bat out of hell." 

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens Friday from Disney, parent company of ABC News.

Joey Del Valle/NBCU Photo Bank(LOS ANGELES) -- Whoa! Fans of the popular NBC sitcom Blossom, which ran from 1990 to 1995, will be thrilled to hear that there's a chance Blossom could be on its way back to television, according to former cast member Joey Lawrence. Lawrence starred as Blossom's jock older brother Joey. Blossom, of course, was played by current The Big Bang Theory actress, Mayim Bialik.

When Steve host Steve Harvey asked the 41-year-old actor if there was a possibility for a revival, Lawrence revealed, "There's been serious talk about it, believe it or not," He added, "Mayim and I have both said we'd be into it. We've talked to Don Reo about it, who created it. If there's a way in, then I think we're all down for it."

Lawrence continued, "The show ended where he went off to play baseball. He was a really good baseball player. So, I think he went and had a great career, probably got married several times because he was always going on dates."

But where would the character Joey be now? Lawrence said that in the reboot, Joey could return home after being away for a long time to find out who he is now. He explained, "Maybe his career is over, right? Mid to late thirties. And, he's gotta find something else to do with his life."

In October, the cast of the show including Jenna von Oy, who played Blossom's best friend Six, and Michael Stoyanov, who played Blossom and Joey's older brother Anthony, reunited for an Entertainment Weekly photo shoot.

DisneyStar Wars: The Last Jedi finally arrives Friday.  It's the second Star Wars go-around for star Daisy Ridley, who made her debut as Rey in The Force Awakens, but she tells ABC News that being a Star Wars veteran didn't make her second time any easier.

"I think the second time around filming was scarier, because I had more of a sense of what it was," she says. "I had a sense of the fandom; I had a sense of the reaction to the film, everything; and so I had a lot of questions about the story."

Many of those questions, Ridley says, revolved around the relationship between her character and John Boyega's reformed Stormtrooper, Finn. 

"I was like, 'If Rey and Finn are the things that people really liked, how does it work if Rey and Finn aren't together for a lot of the film?'" she says. "So there were a lot of questions I had that made the filming process so scary."

Although Ridley's been part of the Star Wars family now for three years -- she was cast as Rey in 2014 -- she admits she hasn't fully geeked out on Star Wars. "Someone just told me about a novelization and I was like, 'I've never heard about this before,'" she acknowledges.

Speaking of Star Wars vets, The Last Jedi of course marks the final appearance of one of the series' beloved originals, the late Carrie Fisher.  Ridley says that Fisher's Leia is a major presence in The Last Jedi.

"I think even if the tragedy hadn't have happened, it's really emotional," Ridley says. "Her storyline is really emotional, but obviously there's added weight to everything now."

ABC News and Lucasfilm are both part of parent company Disney.

After getting engaged earlier that year, Kym Herjavec (nee Johnson) detailed the proposal on Good Morning America, which she said included rose petals and a surprise party.

"We were there to do Dancing with the Stars," Kym Herjavec said on GMA. "And it was a really nice way to meet, obviously. We had so much fun dancing together." 

Kym and Robert Herjavec met during season 20 of DWTS. According to People magazine, this will be the first child for Kym Herjavec and the fourth for Robert Herjavec.

A request for further comment from the couple wasn't immediately returned to ABC News.

NBC Universal(LOS ANGELES) -- The semifinals kicked off on Monday’s edition of The Voice, a show that saw the remaining eight artists compete for America’s vote, advised by their coaches, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Hudson.

The eight semifinalists each performed a new song on his or her own, and a duet with another artist.

Here are the highlights of Monday night's show:

Adam Cunningham, representing Team Adam, lead off with Lonestar’s “I’m Already There.” Afterwards, Levine praised the performance, calling Cunningham “one of the top contenders in the competition."

Next up, Team Jennifer’s Noah Mac paired with Chloe Kohanski, from Blake’s team, for a cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game.”

Team Jennifer’s Davon Fleming delivered his take on “Gravity,” by John Mayer. During rehearsals, Hudson advised Fleming to “feel” the song and stop trying to be “perfect.” All four coaches were on their feet after the performance, including Adam, who praised Davon for “scaling back” his delivery of the song. Jennifer agreed, telling Davon, “We felt you tonight.”

Team Blake’s country singer, Red Marlow, put everything on the line, tackling Vince’s Gill’s rangy “Go Rest High on That Mountain.” Miley called Marlow’s performance “authentic.” Blake said Gill was sitting somewhere “with a huge grin on his face.”

Next, Team Miley’s Brooke Simpson teamed up with Fleming for “Earned It,” by The Weeknd.

Another one of Blake’s artists, Keisha Renee, put her country/soul spin on Rascal Flatts’ “What Hurts the Most,” and received a vote of confidence from the band’s Gary LeVox, who FaceTimed her to say she was “gifted” and had “an amazing talent.” Afterwards, Miley complimented Renee for putting her own spin on everything she does. Blake called the performance “incredible.”

The next duet pairing featured Marlow and Cunningham covering The Marshall Tucker Band’s “Can’t You See.”

Kohanski returned for her solo performance, “I Want to Know What Love Is” by Foreigner. Referring to a couple of her prior performances, Kohanski told Blake in rehearsals that she was “thinking a ’Landslide’ moment-meets-‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ moment.” Afterwards, Blake declared the performance Chloe’s best so far, adding that her voice was “iconic.”

Next, Renee joined Team Adam’s Addison Agen for their rendition of Sheryl Crow’s “Strong Enough.”

Mac then returned to the stage for his solo performance, “River,” by Bishop Briggs. Miley praised Noah for bringing “something youthful and modern to the show." Jennifer complimented Mac on believing in himself and commanding the stage the way he did.

Agen, the youngest artist in the competition at 16 years old, took the stage again with Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now.” Addison’s coach, Adam Levine urged her to reach “as deeply as you ever have in yourself” and “swing for the fences.” Following the performance, Adam declared Addison “Is The Voice,” and “beyond that.”

Miley Cyrus’ last remaining artist in the competition, Brooke Simpson, closed the show with a song Cyrus hoped would showcase Simpson’s rock & roll side – Journey’s “Faithfully.” Afterwards, Miley urged America to vote for Brooke, explaining, “If [the show] is about ‘The Voice’…your winner is right here.”

The Voice returns Tuesday night at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
