Robin Williams’ biggest commitment to series television since the days of “Mork & Mindy” highlights a 20th TV slate that is deep, even if not necessarily brimming with international star appeal.
Williams is teaming with another recognizable face, Sarah Michelle Gellar, in the single-cam, father-daughter workplace comedy “The Crazy Ones,” from the pen of a scribe with no small amount of global cachet himself: David E. Kelley.
Kelley’s star Stateside hasn’t shined quite as brightly of late — “Harry’s Law” (NBC) lasted only two seasons, while “Monday Mornings” (TNT) didn’t make it past one, and half-hour isn’t exactly where the “Picket Fences” and “Ally McBeal” creator made his bones, but a series starring Williams in an accessible setting is filled with worldwide potential.
A slam dunk for interest is the limited-series return of Kiefer Sutherland in “24: Live Another Day.” The condensed format »

Ever since Toy Story 3 came and went, Pixar has been keeping it’s flagship franchise alive through various short films, which I think is a whole lot better than making a fourth film. I feel like the story of Woody and his friends came to a perfect conclusion and to continue that would cheapen that ending. But these shorts are a different matter – they’re new stories used for fun, just to check in on these characters from time to time without starting a new emotional journey. Pixar is taking its short films one step further by airing a 30-minute special on ABC.
Normally Pixar puts its shorts in front of its new feature length movies, but since 30 minutes is much too long the only logical place is on a network. The special, called Toy Story of Terror, will air in October, near Halloween says TV guide. As such, »

I hadn't heard of this, or if I had I forgot, but TV Guide has premiered the above first look picture from "Toy Story of Terror", an upcoming 30-minute long Halloween special featuring the Toy Story gang. Apparently the story centers on the gang as the toy's new owner Bonnie takes the toys with her and the family on vacation when their car breaks down and they're forced to stay in a spooky motel. It appears Jesse (voiced by Joan Cusack) is at the center of the story with Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen), Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles), Rex (Wallace Shawn), Mr. Pricklepants (Timothy Dalton) and Trixie (Kristen Schaal) also along for the ride. There's also a new toy in the mix voiced by Carl Weathers named Combat Carl (naturally). Angus MacLane, who's been doing work with Pixar since Geri's Game in 1997 and up through working as an animator on Toy Story 3, »

Anyone who thought that Disney/Pixar's "Toy Story" franchise would really be kaput following "Toy Story 3" (a movie that practically crow-barred tears out of even the most hardened misanthrope) were, of course, out of their collective minds. Since the third film was released, we've had three dazzling theatrical short films ("Hawaiian Vacation," "Small Fry," and "Partysaurus Rex") and idle chatter of a fourth film. And come Halloween, we'll get something even more special – a 22-minute TV special called "Toy Story of Terror," the first image of which debuted today. Also, former Pixar director Brenda Chapman weighs in on the controversy surrounding her "Brave" character Merida becoming an official Disney Princess. The first image from the special – featuring Woody (Tom Hanks) and Jessie (Joan Cusack) huddled around a ominously glow-in-the-dark Buzz (Tim Allen) – is appropriately atmospheric, and along with the image, some details have emerged about the special's tone and plot. »

In the grand old tradition, well in recent times, of animated Halloween Specials, I’m excited to share the first still from Pixar’s ‘Toy Story Of Terror!’. I’ve always quite enjoyed The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror as they venture though various homages and pastiche and to see the Toy Story toys back up on the screen, in any form, is pretty darn cool.
We first heard news of this back in October of last year and obviously animation takes a little longer than most to bring to life, but it’s been confirmed that ABC in the USA will screen it in October this year. The story follows Bonnie on a road trip to visit her grandma and she’s taken all the toys along with her for the journey, as her favourite is Jessie (Joan Cusack), this one-off will feature the cowgirl a little more prominently »

Now another new one is coming this Halloween, but it's a full 30-minutes long and will be getting the TV treatment.

We first told you about the project back in October of 2012, and according to TV Guide all is on track for ABC to air "Toy Story of Terror" this October as a 30-minute special that reunites the original voice cast from the Toy Story franchise.
From Pixar, "Toy Story of Terror" follows the adventures of the toys post-Toy Story 3, in which a fun road trip takes a very unexpected turn. "Bonnie is on a road trip to go see grandma with her mom, and the toys are in the trunk," producer Galyn Susman says. "Mom gets a flat tire and they have to spend the night at a motel, and all kinds of chaos ensues. »

New York — ABC is cutting its aging "Dancing With the Stars" back to two hours and one night next season, creating a slot for a new drama series based on the Marvel Comics world that's aimed at expanding the network's audience, its programming chief said Tuesday.
Condensing the celebrity dancing contest on Monday night "opens up Tuesday for a pretty aggressive play," said Paul Lee, ABC Entertainment Group president, whose network became the third of the major broadcasters to announce its 2013-14 schedule. The network's entire Tuesday lineup for the fall is made up of new series.
"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," from hit-maker Joss Whedon of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "The Avengers" films, will help broaden the audience for ABC, which is the network leader among young adult women, Lee said. The comic-book based series presumably will attract some younger men to the network. "Dancing With the Stars" is big with older women. »

ABC released its new schedule for the 2013-2014 season and it's a mixed bag of the same and surprises.
"Dancing With The Stars" has been condensed to one night and will air from 8:00-10:00 p.m. on Mondays, combining the performance show and results show. The change to ABC's longtime schedule makes room for an all-new night of TV on Tuesdays, which kicks off with "Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D."
Rebel Wilson's comedy "Super Fun Night" has landed the post-"Modern Family" on Wednesday and the new baseball comedy "Back in the Game" takes "Suburgatory's" 8:30 p.m. timeslot, leaving the Cheryl Hines comedy for a midseason debut for its third season. Another change to the comedies on the ABC schedule? "The Neighbors" has been bumped to Fridays, taking over the now-canceled "Malibu Country" timeslot, following Tim Allen's "Last Man Standing."

"Last Man Standing" has been renewed. ABC will bring the Tim Allen sitcom back for a third season.
Despite a shortened season and move to Friday nights, "Last Man Standing" held steady in the ratings. The Season 2 finale, which featured Allen reuniting with his "Home Improvement" co-star Jonathan Taylor Thomas, had 7.9 million viewers and a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That's a solid number for a broadcast series on a weekday, let alone a Friday.
Paired with "Malibu Country," the comedy brought viewers back to a time when Friday night meant Tgif on ABC.
In addition to "Last Man Standing," ABC renewed "Castle," "Grey's Anatomy," "The Middle," "Modern Family," "Nashville," "Once Upon A Time," "Revenge," "Scandal" and "Suburgatory." ABC canceled an additional five series from the 2012-2013 season: "Body Of Proof," "Happy Endings," "How To Live With Your Parents," "Malibu Country" and "Red Widow," which join the previously canceled "666 Park Avenue, »

★★★☆☆ In the ever-watchable Chimpanzee (2012), Blue Planet producers Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield transport us to the Ivorian rainforests of Taï National Park, where we are introduced to three-month-old Oscar - a cheeky ape who gains an unexpected ally when he's faced with more than his fair share of troubles from a rival group of chimps. As is to be expected from a Disney Nature-backed documentary, the tone is light throughout as we witness the daily trials and tribulations of life below the canopy. The level is set (and kept) at 'pleasingly chirpy', with a heavy injection of anthropomorphism given to the travailing troop.
American actor Tim Allen's merry, if at times rather corny narration keeps this rather short, feature-length tale chortling along, referring to the oldest chimpanzee as 'Grandpa' and crowbarring in jokes seemingly swiped from his 1990s TV show Home Improvement. At times, this approach results in »
