Time to Double Dip on One of the Best Horror/Comedies of All Time

16 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This Week in New DVD ReleasesZombies Politely Request More Paramedics in One of the Best Horror/Comedies of All TimePick of the WeekThe Return of the Living Dead [Scream Factory]

What is it? You’ve gone through life thinking the events dramatized in George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead were fictional, but the fact is the film was based on a real incident. Freddy learns this truth the hard way on his first day at a medical supply warehouse when he accidentally unleashes the chemical that once again resurrects the dead into flesh-hungry zombies.

Why buy it? Dan O’Bannon’s mid-’80s classic is one of the best horror/comedies ever made, period. The laughs are frequent, sharp, and just as likely to come from dialogue, delivery, or events, but don’t let its comedic chops make you doubt its quality as a horror movie. Scares, gore, and terrific pacing drive this gem forward to the »

Sara and Erin Foster on 'Barely Famous,' Funny Ladies and Larry David

21 July 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In the second season of Sara and Erin Foster's VH1 comedy series Barely Famous, we witness two entitled, beautiful women – named Sara and Erin – hurl themselves through Los Angeles with little care for the pain and confusion they cause others. It's a faux reality show that takes all the bad and balls it up to throw it back in your face. 

So what prompted the daughters of the multi–Grammy-winning music producer David Foster – who has worked with everyone from Chicago and Alice Cooper to Christina Aguilera and Whitney Houston »

Emmy Voters Suffer from Awards Lag Syndrome

18 July 2016 3:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“You were robbed,” I told Jay Duplass at Amazon Studios’ “Gleason” premiere last week. He was a tad crestfallen about not landing a supporting actor Emmy nomination for his excellent performance as Josh Pfefferman on “Transparent,” until I reminded him how hard it is to get nominated for the first time. There’s often a lag.

Look at “The Americans.” It took four seasons of campaigning and increasingly positive reviews for it to finally land a Best Drama slot this year. The TV Academy turns to the same old popular favorites so often that it’s tough for someone new to break into the ranks.

This year, during the intense campaigning for the Emmy Awards, I realized that my hard-won understanding of how Oscar voters think does not apply to the TV Academy. I felt out of step with some of the Emmy pundits on Gold Derby who were picking »

Emmys 2016: Streaming Surprises (‘Comedians in Cars’) and Snubs (‘Orange Is the New Black’) Show New Status Quo

15 July 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

We long ago passed the point where it felt at all strange for a show on a streaming service to grab Emmy love. Instead, the Academy now refers to distributors as “platforms” rather than “networks,” and we consider a paucity of nominations for “Orange Is the New Black” to be a snub.

Netflix weighed in with 54 nominations in total, up quite a bit from 2015’s 34. But that might seem a natural consequence of Netflix’s massive push toward more original programming. The streaming service has more than doubled the amount of originals it submitted, and many of these new series were the ones that helped make up for shortfalls from series that mysteriously fell out of favor.

To wit: The number of comedies Netflix submitted for consideration more than quadrupled, from two to nine. Newcomer “Master of None” came in like a wrecking ball, picking up three big category nods, including »

2016 Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Variety Talk Series

14 July 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quick Hits

Last Year’s Winner: “The Daily Show” Was It an Upset? No. Still Eligible? Yes. Hot Streak: A Comedy Central variety talk series has won every year since 2002. Fun Fact: Variety Talk series dominated the Outstanding Variety category before it was split in two last year, winning 17 years running. “The Daily Show” won 10 of those, too.

“Comedians…in cars…getting coffee? What? Oh, ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee!'” That should sum up the typical reaction to seeing Jerry Seinfeld’s Crackle series making the cut; i.e., it might have taken a minute for reality to set in. Still, it’s in the race, providing a nice arc from the light and fun coffee chats, to the fun games of “Jimmy Fallon,” to the goofy antics of “James Corden” and the mean Tweets on “Jimmy Kimmel, »

Emmy Nomination Snubs and Surprises: Stephen Colbert to ‘The Americans’

14 July 2016 11:16 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Those screams of joy (and shrieks of anger) you heard emanating from Hollywood this morning meant one thing: the TV Academy released the annual Emmy nominations. And with that list came the usual surprises and snubs. Here’s who was disappointingly shut out — and happily included — this morning.

Snub: Stephen Colbert, “The Daily Show,” Samantha Bee

A massive shake-up in the variety talk category left veterans “The Daily Show” (with new host Trevor Noah) and Stephen Colbert shut out for the first time in over a decade (when Colbert’s “The Colbert Report” launched on Comedy Central). Both shows drew zero noms this morning. Voters clearly didn’t warm to Colbert’s take on “The Late Show,” which had been nominated in its final season with original host David Letterman last year. “Daily Show” vet Samantha Bee was also expected to join the club for her host freshman series “Full Frontal,” but »

Bryan Cranston Spills Seinfeld Secrets: Here's Why Jerry Is Always Smiling

14 July 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Jerry Seinfeld's small-screen alter ego on Seinfeld had plenty to feel good about: He had a loyal (if eccentric) group of friends, a successful career (good enough to buy his parents a new Cadillac), and a dating life that would put even the most devoted Tinder users to shame. But according to Bryan Cranston, who made several guest appearances on the hit sitcom as the joke-telling dentist Tim Whatley, there was another reason Seinfeld was always smiling. "It was so much fun, we had to stop rolling the tape often because Jerry would be laughing," Cranston, 60, revealed during the »

James Corden, ‘Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee’ Snag Best Variety Talk Noms; Colbert Misses Cut

14 July 2016 8:58 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Bill Maher’s back in the running for best late-night talk show after getting snubbed last year, and Crackle cracked the category, now called Best Variety Talk Program, with a nom for Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. But CBS scored maybe the biggest late-night-nom headline, though it was for James Corden’s Late Late Show. Corden’s show grabbed a lot of attention this season with “Carpool Karaoke” segments featuring the likes of Adele, George Clooney and… »

HBO’s epic fantasy drama “Game of Thrones” once again leads the pack of contenders for the Primetime Emmy Awards, grabbing 23 nominations for its sixth season.

11 July 2016 4:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Seinfeld” is long gone, but Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” is finally set to return for a ninth season, “Veep” is as funny as ever and Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” remains an entertaining diversion as well. Seinfeld’s next guest in the web series — which, as you might have deduced, features comedians in cars getting coffee — is Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels. Watch a brief preview of their encounter below.

Michaels starts things off by saying he’s “very happy” to be part of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”; when asked by Seinfeld if he means it, he quickly admits, “no.” He’s next seen questioning the show’s very format, though his apparent confusion seems quickly assuaged as the two sit down for coffee and discuss Dana Carvey. »

Watch Jiminy Glick repeatedly insult Jerry Seinfeld on 'Maya and Marty'

6 July 2016 6:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Are you as surprised by your success as the rest of us?" asks Jiminy Glick (Martin Short) early in his interview with Jerry Seinfeld and, well, you can guess how the rest of the segment went from there. Seinfeld was the latest celebrity to get the Jiminy Glick treatment on Maya & Marty and it did not disappoint. Though the series as a whole still isn't working, Glick's segments tend to be consistently funny because there's nothing quite like poking fun at a rich celebrity. Seinfeld, who is introduced as "from the '90s" takes it all in stride as Glick jokes about his observational peanut humor and never seeing Seinfeld .  »

Maya & Marty: Best and Worst Sketches With Amy Poehler, Will Forte, Seinfeld

Maya & Marty on Tuesday was pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good just Ok.

The penultimate hour of the Peacock’s variety experiment featured Jerry Seinfeld’s sit-down with Jiminy Glick and Martin Short doing his (best?) Larry David impersonation. (Fun fact: This evening marks the 27th anniversary of Seinfeld, so it was quite fitting that the comedian put in an appearance on his former network.)

Khloé Kardashian is going for a ride with Jerry Seinfeld in his popular Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee web series - well … sort of. Funnywoman Maya Rudolph will impersonate the 5-ft., 10-in. Kardashian sister, on Tuesday's episode of Marty & Maya during a fictional "lost episode" segment of Seinfeld's show that showcases "people who are not only funny, but just people who think they're funny." "I'm pretty much known as the funniest Kardashian," Rudolph-as-Kardashian boasts in the clip, her head towering out of Seinfeld's convertible. "But I'm not just the funny one, I'm also the tall one."

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Seinfeld’ premiered

5 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It was 27 years ago today, in the final months of the 1980s, that the one of the defining shows of the 1990s, Seinfeld, premiered. Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David launched the “show about nothing” though they’d been asked to put together a 90-minute TV special. A season pick-up at first seemed unlikely after the pilot airing, but NBC execs ended up finding the money to order more episodes by making one fewer Bob Hope special, and the show of course went on to become one of the most successful and beloved comedies in television history, giving us the Soup Nazi, the Festivus pole, George’s musical answering machine, and a showcase for a quartet of four core comedic talents. Other notable July 5 happenings in pop culture history: • 1954: The BBC broadcast its first daily television news program. • 1954: Elvis Presley recorded his version of “That’s All Right.” • 1968: »

Jerry Seinfeld Gets Emotional as He and Judd Apatow Remember Garry Shandling

30 June 2016 5:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld took on a heavier topic in the latest episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Over burgers, shakes, and of course coffee, Seinfeld and filmmaker Judd Apatow discuss their mutual friend Garry Shandling who died in March. "People responded at Garry's memorial to you and Garry in a big way," Apatow told the Seinfeld star, who teared up at the recollection. "There's something about him that encompasses the human struggle. He was trying so hard to be happy, and to find peace, and to let go of his ego." Shandling, 66, suffered a heart attack in late March »
