'Mad Men' at 10: Why This Landmark TV Show Is Still a Golden-Age Standout

19 July 2017 8:46 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"What you call love was invented by guys like me to sell nylons." With these tender words, Don Draper talked himself into the heart of his new client Rachel Mencken, and into TV history. The first episode of Mad Men aired 10 years ago today, on July 19th, 2007, introducing the world to a rogue's gallery of glamorously twisted con artists. Jon Hamm as Don, the Korean War deserter who steals a dead officer's dogtags and invents himself a new life as a Madison Avenue advertising genius. John Slattery as Roger Sterling, »

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

“The Americans”

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. »

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ to Return Oct. 1 (Watch)

10 July 2017 10:20 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

October is going to be a pretty, pretty good month for Larry David: The ninth season of his HBO comedy series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” is set to return on Oct. 1.

HBO announced the news with a new trailer on YouTube.

The series has been off the air since 2011; HBO announced the return was officially happening last June.

“We’re thrilled that Larry has decided to do a new season of ‘Curb’ and can’t wait to see what he has planned,” said HBO programming president Casey Bloys.

Asked why he decided to come back, David said, “In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, ‘I left, I did nothing, I returned.’”

The hit comedy stars “Seinfeld” co-creator David as an over-the-top version of himself in an unsparing but tongue-in-cheek depiction of his life. With 80 episodes to date, the show is HBO’s longest-running scripted comedy or drama series.

The whole “Curb” main gang will be returning for »

Ted Danson could make history with an Emmy nomination for ‘The Good Place’

Fyc: "The Good Place" for Best Comedy

22 June 2017 12:33 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Team Experience are sharing their Emmy hopeful favorites. Here's Sean Donovan...

The Good Place was one of the quietest critical successes of the 2016/2017 television calendar, amassing a small but loyal band of followers. They attended to every minuscule detail of the show’s terrifically nuanced mythology. Yet, of all the Emmy FYCs The Film Experience has been doling out these past two weeks, this feels like one of the farthest reaches. The Good Place is perfectly in the lane of a future cult classic. But that's the problem. To become a true cult classic, your greatness must somehow allude the powers that be at the time. 

For the uninitiated, The Good Place follows Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) who, following her sudden death in the pilot, finds herself in the afterlife, specifically the carefully non-denominational “Good Place,” presided over by cheerful architect Michael (Ted Danson) »

Kristen Bell Calls Out Ted Danson for Spilling The Good Place's Big Reveal

13 June 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kristen Bell and Ted Danson lied to you. Well, sort of. The stars of The Good Place kept the show's big season one a secret from just about everyone…depending on who you ask. "I'm a good secret keeper. Ted told everybody. I saw mutual friends who were like, 'Ted told me about your show. The ending is divine,'" Bell told E! News at The Good Place's Fyc event. "Don't trust Ted." "No, that's not true. See, I may not be able to keep a secret, but she's a liar. She's just an out-and-out liar," Danson said. However, there is some truth to what Bell said. The twist in question—and this is a major spoiler—was revealed in the season one »

7 New Shows You May Have Missed That Are Worth Revisiting

8 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

In the overcrowded TV landscape, it’s easy to fall behind on even favorite shows. This past spring has been particularly overcrowded with must-see series jockeying for awards attention.

But now that the official season has come to a close, that gives some breathing room to check out other series that premiered over the past season. For one reason or another, these shows may have been overlooked or maybe started off on the wrong foot and lost viewers’ attention. It happens. Even TV critics haven’t gotten around to watching some of the best shows due to time constraints and Peak TV.

Emmy Contenders 2017: Lead Actor in a Comedy

31 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It remains to be seen if anyone can break Jeffrey Tambor’s two-year winning streak for “Transparent,” but there’s a formidable group that will make a strong effort. In fact, this category could be an exact repeat of last year’s lineup, with Anthony Anderson (“Black-ish”), Aziz Ansari (“Master of None”), Will Forte (“The Last Man On Earth”), William H. Macy (“Shameless”), and Thomas Middleditch (“Silicon Valley”) all eligible. But it’s likely at least one will be displaced by Donald Glover’s star turn on the FX comedy “Atlanta,” which won dual Golden Globe Awards for best comedy series and comedy actor this year. Glover has been busy at work on the high-profile Han Solo prequel, which certainly puts him front and center in voters’ minds. But never count out Jim Parsons, who could return for his work on “The Big Bang Theory,” which has already landed him four Emmys. And »
