Comedian Melissa McCarthy is a busy woman — acting, producing, and directing — but she carves out time for her favorite show!

“Extra’s” Tanika Ray sat down with the funnywoman, who revealed what she loves watching with her family. Melissa shared, "’Chopped!’ Our whole family watches it. It's like our sporting event. We're like, ‘What's in the basket?!’ Oh, Ted Allen, we love you. My girls at a crazy-early age were like, ‘Ted Allen's wonderful!’”

Melissa’s portrayal of former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on “SNL” is one for the ages, but will she reprise the role? Melissa shared, “I have no idea. Maybe never, we’ll see... Maybe he just goes away forever?"

Jokes aside, Melissa has been hard at work creating a 60-second short film inspired by Walmart’s blue shipping box that will air during ABC’s Oscar telecast this Sunday. Of the short, Melissa said, “I really loved the concept of three different filmmakers getting one idea and no limitations. It’s just being about storytelling. What does this make you think of? We all got a blue box and that’s it.”

Melissa's short film is a whimsical story of an insecure woman who finds her confidence through a magical box. The film stars Tony nominee and “The Greatest Showman” actress Keala Settle.
