‘Hollywood Game Night’ Ratings Jump, ‘Zoo’ Dips As NBC Wins Night

19 hours ago | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

There wasn't a lot of movement Tuesday night in primetime but there were some fine moves from Seth Green, Cheryl Burke and Joe Jonas on Hollywood Game Night (1.4/5). With that action on board, the Jane Lynch-hosted show — which also had Michelle Trachtenberg, Jenna Elfman and Jeff Dye on last night — saw a strong 27% jump in adults 18-49 from last week. Coming off the double-digit drop of its August 25 show, last night's Hgn is just behind the 1.5 rating of its July 7… »

'Can't Hardly Wait' Cast Want a Reunion Movie

18 August 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In 2018, it will be 20 years since the Can't Hardly Wait gang threw their epic graduation party on the big screen. The cast think it's about time for a reunion movie, and now is as good a time as any to start the hype machine. Will we see Can't Hardly Wait 2 become a reality over the course of the next two years? Lead actors Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ethan Embry sure hope so.

It happened this year with Wet Hot American Summer, which returned in the form of a Netflix series. Like that movie, Can't Hardly Wait has continued to grow a strong cult following over the years. It stands as a perfect time capsule for the 90s, especially in terms of clothing, slang and the social structure of the teenage movement at that time. 90s nostalgia is about to reach its crescendo soon, and this may be the perfect sequel to get us there. »

17 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Ethan Embry had a very busy weekend. The actor took part in not one, but two different reunions in Los Angeles, celebrating a pair of '90s films that we still can't get enough of! First up: "Empire Records." Buzzfeed hosted a 20th anniversary screening of the flick on Friday evening, with a Q&A with the cast following the film.

We gotta hand it to them, this cast still looks amazing two decades later. Aj is dreamy as ever! During the panel, Tunney revealed that it was her idea to have her character shave her head. "Allan came to me and he’s like, ‘I think the studio wants to fire you ‘cause they think you’re kind of too cute to be depressed, »

Review: Amazon's shockingly filthy, surprisingly sweet 'Catastrophe'

22 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Catastrophe" is a delightful study in contradictions. It's a high-concept comedy with low-key execution, and it's at once filthy on a level that's impressive even in the year 2015, yet almost shockingly normal despite that. The series — its six-episode first season aired on Channel 4 on the UK earlier this year, and is now streaming on Amazon Prime — casts its stars and creators, Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan, as an American businessman and an Irish schoolteacher who have a fling while he's on a week-long trip to the UK. They get on well enough to at least discuss seeing each other again the next time he's in town, but then Sharon discovers that she's pregnant and Rob decides to set his whole life aside to move in with her and help raise the baby. This is a premise from which rom-coms and sitcom hackery can be born — see "Accidentally On Purpose, »

Galaxy Studios secures Richard Elfman deal

16 May 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Wilfried Van Baelen’s Belgium-based, post-production outfit, Galaxy Studios has finalised a three-film deal with filmmaker Richard Elfman (Modern Vampires).

The deal will see Elfman working with Van Baelen’s Auro Technologies, using new immersive sound format Auro-3D on all three of the films.

'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: America Chooses Well (So Far)

5 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Oh, dance fans, I had a hard time watching this episode of "Dancing with the Stars." Don't get me wrong, there's actually a lot of great dancing here for America's Choice and a trio round. The problem is, every couple to perform reminds me of last week's travesty: the heart-breaking elimination that sent home our beloved Willow. She should still be here, and it's disgusting to me that she's not. It's particularly hard to be objective about Chris and Robert when I'm still so angry over Willow's ouster.

But there's still lots to admire in this exciting "race to the semi-finals" episode, filled with chills, spills, high pressure, and even two birthdays. Yes, Erin is presented with a cake for her birthday, which she doesn't eat herself (women almost never eat on television) but shares with Tom for his 60th birthday on Wednesday. It's also America's Choice, as the fans »

StreamFix: 5 Underrated Seasons of TV on Netflix Right Now

19 March 2015 2:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Let's face it: Netflix has become a way to excuse yourself for watching 13 hours of television in a row. There's a thrill to the uninterrupted nature of it. Frankly, who cares about having friends? They're not as funny or sexy as TV characters. Think about that. And then, please think about these five underrated seasons of TV all streaming right now on Netflix.  "Damages" season three The season-to-season reinvention of FX's "Damages" was sometimes only half-successful (particularly in the transition from three to four, when it went to DirecTV's Audience network), but I really think we've under-heralded the fabulous moments from the third season. By that year we'd already had the triumphant, basically flawless first season and an ultimately too-confusing second season (with some great work from Marcia Gay Harden), but the third season gave us a trio of wonderful additions: Martin Short as the chilling Leonard Winstone, Lily Tomlin »

Will Forte’s Best Characters On Earth

16 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

With the premiere of Will Forte‘s new show Last Man on Earth debuting to surprisingly good numbers, we are once again blessed with this comedic force in our lives. Let’s look back at some of his best characters on Saturday Night Live and beyond.

With a weak voice and strong opinions on very particular and interesting things, Tim Calhoun isn’t the political hero we deserve, and he’s definitely not the one we need either. Though even we can get behind his “I miss dinosaurs; let’s do something about that” campaign.

Empire Recap: Full Courtney Press

11 February 2015 7:41 PM, PST | | See recent news »

From the moment she makes her first appearance on Empire, we know Courtney Love’s Elle Dallas is a badass force of nature— mainly because she disrespects Cookie Lyon (to her face!) and doesn’t wind up getting a beat-down with a broom.

But while having 150 million in record sales will still get you all the air kisses you can tolerate, there’s a footnote at the bottom of every major-label record deal of which Elle is acutely aware: Any accomplishments not achieved in the last 12-24 months might just as well never happened at all.
