A new season of Boardwalk Empire means new characters to replace those who have passed away the previous season. This fall brings Jeffrey Wright of Casino Royale and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire fame on board. As such, he has a pretty prominent role in the year’s first footage-filled teaser opposite Steve Buscemi’s Nucky Thompson. Continue Reading
It is hard to believe, but only two more episodes remain of the third season of Game of Thrones. What’s going to happen in the penultimate episode. Here is a clue from the teaser promo that ran on top of the credits this weekend. The episode will air June 2 after a week off. What will air over Memorial Day Weekend in its place? The Matt Damon-Michael Douglas Liberace movie Behind the Candelabra. Continue Reading
There was no five-timers club, but it was a pretty good episode of Saturday Night Live nonetheless. Some great, non-cookie cutter sketches padded the gaps between Kanye West and a Stefon farewell which is all we could really ask for. Here are those bits starting with the monologue which poked some fun as Ben Affleck’s Oscar speech in February. Continue Reading
Last night’s Ben Affleck-hosted Saturday Night Live meant it was the farewell show for Fred Armisen and Bill Hader. Both have been on the program for many years, and each have a very important place in the sketch variety show’s history. Perhaps the bigger deal though might have been this meant the recurring character of Stefon at the Weekend Update desk would be lost for who knows how long. That said, it was worth the over the top sendoff they did for the character with Seth Meyers last night, and we have the footage here today. Was this better than the Kristen Wiig goodbye last year? Maybe, but that is only because the patrons from all of New York’s hottest clubs showed up. Continue Reading
Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice panelist Adam Levine was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote The Voice. Ratings are pretty okay for the talent competition series, so he will be back on the show’s next two cycles. That does come up in regards to his colleagues, but the highlights of the conversation came when Levine talked about his friendship with Jonah Hill and doing drugs at a Denny’s. Continue Reading
Here is yet another Dexter trailer in promotion of the series’ early return set for the end of June. It is more of what we have already seen, but still nothing a die-hard Dexter fan would want to ignore. Take a look. Continue Reading
With all sorts of new programming coming down the pipe at Syfy more in line with the cross-media pollination of Defiance, the basic cable channel today announced it would be ending its mainstay Warehouse 13 after an abbreviated fifth season to ‘wrap things up.’ This marks the fall of great things as at one point the network with smitten with the idea of spinning this show off. Read on for the ‘farewell’ press release.
NEW YORK – May 17, 2013 – Syfy today announced that its long-running flagship series Warehouse 13 will return for a fifth and final season of six episodes in 2014. Continue Reading
Remember that Zombieland show we all wanted to work out on Amazon Prime? It has already been kicked to the curb. That is the sentiment we are getting from franchise creator Rhett Reese who is without words for the show’s apparent non-pickup.
Having said that, maybe there is still chance for the franchise to live on in sequel form. Never say never because these things tend to work out for the best. That horrible idea to move 24 to the big screen? It fell apart and now Fox is bringing it back for a limited run on television. Some things play better in a specific medium, and Zombieland may go down as a prime example of that. Continue Reading
The Tonight Show had Nick Offerman on Wednesday night. The Parks & Recreation star visited the program where he talked about his new play with his wife Megan Mullally. He also relived an appearance he had on her sitcom from yesteryear at the end of the following footage. Continue Reading
Fresh off receiving a second season renewal, Nashville star Connie Britton took to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday to promote her country music-based drama. The Friday Night Lights alumna talked about a few things including how she felt like an imposter. Her show’s season finale airs Wednesday, May 22. Continue Reading
Remember Jerry Gergich from Parks & Recreation? Well, he is actually a pretty funny guy in real life named Jim O’Heir. The comic actor was on Jimmy Kimmel last night via a segment meant at skewering Abercrombie for refusing to make a shirt beyond a large. Continue Reading
Falling Skies fans have reason to be happy. The program’s new showrunner has just been tapped, and the job has fallen in the lap of former Battlestar Galactica EP David Eick. Deadline is reporting this evening that he will helming the Noah Wyle-led sci-fi drama as it heads into a fourth season (the third season begins its run on June 9.) Expect a renewal on that end to come quickly as special effects require some pretty advance notice even though Eick’s first take on the series will not come until maybe June 2014. He will be replacing Remi Aubuchon who served on the show for its first three seasons.
Well, that was fast. The Peacock is more than happy with making the ‘cycle off’ vacations of Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green on The Voice a yearly thing. News is breaking this Thursday that NBC has already locked down Shakira and Usher for the show’s Spring 2014 run with an announcement expected to come within the next few weeks. That said, we are now curious as to the constants on the panel and whether they might too be up from periodic displacement. Adam Levine and Blake Shelton have been on the program since the very beginning and the former at least does not entirely owe his career to the hit reality program.
Hold the phone of the ‘last episode for Seth Meyers’ talk. The soon to be Late Night host was on The Today Show this morning where he talking about his migration from SNL to weeknights where he confirmed he would not be leaving Weekend Update until 2014. The press naturally assumed that he would be using the fall to work on his new show which is hardly the case. On the other hand, there is another exit today to announce coming from the New York Post. Fred Armisen who has been a mainstay on the variety program. Continue Reading
