The first, scripted drama “The Oath,” will be executive produced by Curtis Jackson — that’s the emcee’s real name. The original series, which focuses on secret societies inside the police force, is created. »

7 of the Worst TV Series Finales: From ‘Seinfeld’ to ‘Girls’ (Photos)

17 April 2017 10:53 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The series finale of the beloved “show about nothing” has gone down in history as a disappointment. Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld), George (Jason Alexander), Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and Kramer (Michael Richards)  end up in prison for violating the “Good Samaritan” law. In the last shot, we see Jerry performing stand-up to his fellow inmates. It was just weird. The series ending to “Girls” was confusing to say the least. The penultimate episode, “Goodbye Tour,” felt way more like a finale, wrapping up with the four main characters dancing the night away together. The finale, “Latching,” surrounded Marnie (Allison Williams) and Hannah. »

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return’ Review: Faces Change, But The Anarchic Spirit Remains the Same

14 April 2017 5:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If you know the words, sing along:

If you’re wondering how he eats and breathes

and other science facts,

Just repeat to yourself, “It’s just a show,

I should really just relax…”

for Mystery Science Theater 3000!”

While some things have changed about the revival of “Mystery Science Theater 3000” (premiering this weekend on Netflix) an awful lot hasn’t — including the refrain above from the opening theme song, familiar to generations of fans. The lyrics above, a winky nod to the absurdity of the show’s premise, has always been a major tone-setter for the series created by Joel Hodgson, which brings together an appreciation for the clumsiest efforts in film history with its own crude yet charming style.

Tj Miller on his latest project: 'This is a truly apolitical talk show'

7 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Deadpool comic voices a monstrous puppet in The Gorburger Show and talks about why he’s staying away from making a political statement

“In the interviews I do, I own and operate a slide whistle,” explains Tj Miller, graciously asking for permission before letting loose with the looping – and loud – whistle several times during the course of the interview with the Guardian. It’s his thing now, apparently. “I’m pretty sure slide whistles are going to take off,” he adds, sounding a bit like Doctor Who trying to convince Amy Pond that fezzes are cool.

Perhaps theoutlandish characters that Miller is known for playing on shows like Silicon Valley and in films like Deadpool aren’t that much of a stretch for the actor. It also might not be a stretch for Miller to play a giant blue alien puppet whose only dream is to be a talk show host, »

Insult comic Don Rickles dies aged 90

6 April 2017 8:11 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Martin Scorsese pays tribute: “It was like listening to a great jazz musician wail.”

Don Rickles, legendary comedian and actor, died on Thursday in Los Angeles of kidney failure. He was 90.

Born in New York City, Rickles began his career in nightclubs where he earned his reputation as an insult comic after his manner of responding to hecklers became as popular as the material itself. 

Rickles’ career spanned more than six decades and included continued stand-up routines, acting in television and film, as well as regular appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and Late Show with David Letterman.

The comedian may be best known to contemporary audiences as the voice of Mr. Potato Head in Pixar’s Toy Story films, including the latest instalment, Toy Story 4, due to hit theatres in 2019. 

He got his break in the 1958 war film Run Silent Run Deep alongside Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster, followed by dramatic »

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.

“We’re here tonight to celebrate Don Rickles, and honestly, it’s almost like he’s here with us. You can feel his spirit in this room tonight,” Tina Fey began her roast of the legendary insult comic during a 2014 “One Night Only” birthday celebration.

“Tina, Tina, he is here,” her comedic cohort, Amy Poehler, said.

Don Rickles, Legendary Insult Comic, Dies at 90

6 April 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Abrasive comic Don Rickles, the honorary Rat Pack member and celebrity roast guest whose career spanned six decades, has died. He was 90.

Rickles died Thursday morning at his home in Los Angeles from kidney failure, his longtime publicist Paul Shefrin confirmed. He would have turned 91 on May 8.

Though he appeared in films and on television, Rickles’ mainstay was always nightclub performances, appearing in Las Vegas and elsewhere into his late 80s. He also found late success as the voice of Mr. Potato Head in the “Toy Story” films, which were exceptional box office performers, and popped up frequently on latenight talkshows.

Rickles’ career had its ups and downs as comedic tastes changed, and his curmudgeonly persona was sometimes out of kilter with audience tastes, but he survived long after many of his contemporaries had disappeared into retirement. And when he was hot, he was a potent club headliner, insulting his »
