‘Wild Kratts’ Tackle New Adventure: PBS’ Live, Wild ‘Alaska’

21 July 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The “Wild Kratts” have a new beast to tame.

Chris and Martin Kratt (above, pictured) have over the years navigated visits with a Western spotted skunk and a moray eel. On Sunday at 8 p.m., the popular PBS Kids duo will tackle something equally difficult to soothe: a media-savvy adult with a remote control close at hand.

The Kratts, best known these days for their long-running presence in several animated series focused on animals and the environment, intend to take those interests to their viewers’ parents as they host a live three-night series,” Wild Alaska Live.” The spectacle will let viewers watch live as cameras examine bears, wolves, beavers, moose, orcas and eagles gathering in droves to take part in Alaska’s annual summer feast, sparked by hordes of salmon making their annual trek upstream to spawn. The Kratts will anchor the proceedings from places like Kenai Fjords National Park and the wilderness of Katmai National Park »

Why Chris Hardwick Was the Best Guest Judge Ever on 'America's Got Talent'

19 July 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

The inescapable hype man behind all of AMC's biggest dramas, the originator of the TV after-show trend and the second busiest host in Hollywood (behind Ryan Seacrest), Chris Hardwick, added another job to his resume. Hardwick joined America's Got Talent as the first guest judge of the season. The result was a perfect match. Though the notion of guest judges started in season 10 and we've seen the likes of Reba McEntire and Neil Patrick Harris, Chris was the best guest judge the show has seen thus far. »

Emmys 2017 Snubs and Surprises: ‘Transparent,’ ‘The Leftovers,’ and Pamela Adlon(!)

13 July 2017 9:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A “snub” implies a conscious dismissal; a knowing exclusion; a willful act of disdainful rebuffing. And in the era of “too much TV,” the idea of Emmy voters purposefully boxing out anyone other than Donald Trump is a bit nutty. Those who don’t make the cut aren’t “snubs” so much as they’re… leftovers.

But the 2017 nomination list sure was filled with surprises, good and bad. And while we’d like to refer to the surprising exclusions as leftovers, that’s just too darn confusing when so many of the excluded came from a show called “The Leftovers.” So we’re sticking with snubs. Just know that we know the TV Academy didn’t mean anything by it.

The Snubs

After breaking into the major categories for the first time last year, FX’s critically acclaimed drama was kicked right back out of the Drama Series race. »

Emmys Dream Ballot: The Wild Card Nominees Who Might Actually Make the Cut

12 July 2017 9:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

You can’t always get what you want. That’s how the song goes, but it hasn’t stopped us from hoping – not when it comes to the second “X-Files” revival and not when it comes to the 2017 Emmy Awards.

Nominations will be announced Thursday morning from the Television Academy’s Saban Media Center in North Hollywood. Anna Chlumsky and Shemar Moore will read the chosen nominees, but until that moment arrives — when dreams are dashed and the cold light of day sets in — the dark horse contenders can still believe.

And we can still believe in them. This year’s Emmy race has been incredibly competitive. With Netflix and Amazon measuring appendages and a packed Fyc calendar from April 1 through early June, there are clearly more deserving vote getters than there will be nominees.

So let’s talk about the long shots one more time »
