FX Renews “The Americans,” Bd Wong Returns to “Law & Order” and “Portlandia” Does Gay Pride

17 April 2014 4:46 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


FX has officially renewed The Americans for a third season. Ratings aren’t great for this terrific show, but apparently FX was able to make it work thanks to DVR numbers and critical praise. Too bad that kind of equation wasn’t able to save Terriers from cancellation.

To paraphrase a pair of wise bears, “More wigs more fun!”

Barney Stinson‘s catchphrase, “Legend — wait for it — dary” is what linguists call that a “tmesis,” where a word or phrase is interrupted for (usually comedic) effect.

In a profile in The Hollywood Reporter, John Oliver says that making a satirical news show on a premium channel like HBO means more freedom to tackle challenging topics. “To do a very aggressive piece on [General Motors] before a congressional investigation, that’s potentially a problem on commercial TV. I don’t think it would be outlawed. But I think there would be a sense of, »

Why Neil Patrick Harris Should Inherit David Letterman’s “Late Show”, “Game of Thrones” Prepares for a Royal Wedding and “Continuum” Returns to Tangled Timelines

4 April 2014 5:16 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


ABC wants to expand Good Morning America to three hours, the New York Daily News claims, which would let it compete against the four hour Today Show. The article gets confusing, however, since it seems to discuss local programming

Own has ordered Tulsa, a mini-series starring Octavia Spencer about the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921 that left one of the wealthiest African-American communities destroyed. The event has been suppressed from the history books until recently. Additionally, Toni Braxton will star in the channel’s upcoming movie about Darlene Love.

Which musicians have benefited the most from judging reality shows?

We were ogling Adam Levine long before The Voice.

David Letterman‘s resignation announcement has prompted the expected speculation about his potential replacement. That includes Vulture‘s call for Neil Patrick Harris, Slate‘s argument for Ellen DeGeneres and Think Progress’ list of 12 unexpected suggestions.

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': The highs and lows of season 1

26 March 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Brooklyn Nine-Nine capped off a pretty great first season with a pretty great finale — one that managed to reaffirm everything that already works about the show while setting up a few new, intriguing possibilities for season 2.

Here’s where things stand as the episode draws to a close: Peralta’s leaving the precinct for six months for a dangerous undercover mission. (One that, much to Jake’s disappointment, doesn’t involve a cool fake identity.) He’s also finally come clean to Santiago about his feelings for her — not with some kind of bombastic grand gesture, but with an appropriately low-key confession. »

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine's' Chelsea Peretti on the Big Season Finale Surprise

25 March 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Brooklyn Nine-Nine's season finale.] Fox's Brooklyn Nine-Nine delivered a major twist during Tuesday's season finale. The freshman cop comedy from Parks and Recreation's Mike Schur and Dan Goor used Detective Jake Peralta's (Andy Samberg) investigation into one of the department's superiors to explore his growing feelings for friend and colleague Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero). The episode's biggest reveal came not when Jake professed his feelings for Amy, but when Detective Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio), reeling from being dumped by his fiance, Vivian (Marilu Henner), wound up in bed with the precinct's eccentric

Season finale review: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' - 'Charges and Specs'

25 March 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" just concluded a pretty terrific first season. I did a long interview with Mike Schur about the evolution of the show and some of the plots set up in the finale, and I have a few thoughts on the episode itself coming up just as soon as I have reliable tittle-tattle... That's how you do a sitcom season finale, boys and girls. "Charges and Specs" probably wasn't the funniest episode of the season, but it brought a bunch of character arcs to a head, gave most of the cast members a moment to shine, and ended in a place that could (as Schur notes in our interview) either fuel a whole bunch of stories at the start of next year or be waved away quickly if the writers aren't feeling it. We start off with a drunk Jake announcing that he's just been fired from the NYPD, and »

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Peralta and Gina grew up hanging out in 'The Apartment'

25 February 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" continues to find nuggets of interesting back-story and growth for our favorite lovable, dysfunctional police squad. What is tonight's theme?

The Apartment

Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) is about to get thrown out of his apartment, which is going co-op and he can't afford to buy it (for $430,000, hello, NYC) because he's drowning in debt. And we learn that he and Gina (Chelsea Peretti) grew up together. Because there are only a few dozen people in Brooklyn. But she loves his apartment too ... it was his Nana's place and they grew up there together as kids, watching "House Party." Awww.

After Gina gives him the low-down on his nonexistent finances, they visit a loan shark who will loan money to anyone, for a steep price, and Peralta borrows $20,000 to make a down payment. Not smart. Unfortunately for him, the co-op board is still throwing him out, and he needs »

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Charles goes 'Full Boyle' on Marilu Henner

11 February 2014 7:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

It's Valentine's week on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) is smitten. Smitten with Professor Vivian (Marilu Henner)! And that right there is awesome.

Full Boyle

Boyle and Peralta (Andy Samberg) go undercover as tourists to nab a bad guy. And Boyle is also going "full Boyle" intensity on his relationship with Vivi. Peralta explains to him that he's going to "blow this beyond repair." As Boyle says, he's been directing all his emotions unsuccessfully at Diaz, so now, he's out of control and enlists Jake to help him stay cool. Jake confiscates his phone and suggests they go on a double date so that he can be there keep Boyle under control. Sure, that'll work.

Turns out Bernice, Vivian's friend for the double date, is beautiful and loves the Nets and "Die Hard," so Jake ends up all smitten too, and everything he throws at Boyle to reduce »

Kevin Alejandro’s New Pilot Role, Fred Armisen Leads the New “Late Night” Band and the Improbable Popularity of “The Walking Dead”

11 February 2014 4:29 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


If you haven’t heard about “Dumb Starbucks” it was a California “art gallery” that completely duplicated the look of a Starbucks, except it added “Dumb” to the Starbucks logo. It turns out the shop was a stunt by Comedy Central show Nathan for You, which parodies business improvement reality shows. I laughed when I saw it on the news, I can’t wait to see the episode.

Tom Cavanagh has joined the cast of the CW’s Flash pilot. He’ll play a physicist at S.T.A.R. labs named Harrison Wells. As far as I can find, there isn’t a DC Comics character with that name to hint as his future.

     Just a mention of Tom Cavanagh has me looking for that Breakfast with Scot DVD.

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Captain Holt is the funny one in his marriage

4 February 2014 7:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

It's a double-dose this week of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", fans. One after the Super Bowl, and now another, celebrating Captain Holt's (Andre Braugher) birthday. And we're finally meeting his husband, Kevin Cozner (Marc Evan Jackson.) 

Happy Birthday Captain Holt!

Kevin invites the entire precinct to Holt's birthday party, and while Holt is happy they're all coming, he tells Peralta (Andy Samberg) that he doesn't believe Kevin is going to like him. Bad move. Peralta's main mission is to make sure Kevin likes him. Terry (Terry Crews) gives them some basic pointers for grown-up parties, since it's pretty clear none of them are emotionally capable of handling anything civilized. Which is why we like this show.

Kevin heads the Classics Department at Columbia, leaving Peralta with absolutely nothing in common with him, since the classics he knows are Zeppelin and Hendrix (as he tells Kevin.) The whole group gets "be appropriate" assignments »
