12 thoughts about Marvel's big announcement

28 October 2014 3:52 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

1. Nothing actually happened today. The Internet goes crazy for announcements, and today might very well go down in history as the single most announcement-y announcement in the history of superhero movies or movies or pop culture or human history. But an announcement is not a movie. Anticipation is another word for enjoying something that doesn't exist yet. Currently, here on the Internet, there are bizarre people hurling insult grenades at critics who have committed the sin of liking but not loving Interstellar—a movie that none of the bizarre people hurling insult grenades have actually seen. Maybe they will never actually see Interstellar. »

Join the fiesty discussion going on right now in our infamous message boards where Hollywood stars, directors, execs and other honchos hide behind cyber-nicknames. Sample comments below with links to those hot threads. See more here. -Break- Will 'Mulaney' be cancelled soon by Fox? espnfan: Sadly (or not) it appears Mulaney is headed towards cancellation.  Fox has said they will air the remaining episodes to help the show build an audience, but they have given no word on the future of the program. KyleBailey: I really hope it isn't the first to go. I really liked the pilot but I will admit the last two episodes were a bit bumpy. It definitly doesn't belong to go before The Mysteries of Laura, Manhattan Love Story, Selfie, or Bad Judge. Macbeth: I am dreading the announcement that Mulaney will be cancelled.

Mulaney: Season One Ratings

18 October 2014 9:28 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Seinfeld, a show about a stand-up comic and his friends, is one of the most successful sitcoms in television history. Will Mulaney on Fox be a big ratings success as well? Will it run for years and years? Cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.

Mulaney follows a rising stand-up comic John Mulaney (Mulaney) who's trying to take his career to the next level. He's both helped and hindered by his friends and mentors. The rest of the cast includes Martin Short, Nasim Pedrad, Seaton Smith, Zack Pearlman, and Elliott Gould.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to »

Mulaney: Fox Cuts New Sitcom's Episode Order

18 October 2014 9:09 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Good news and bad news for the fans of Fox's new Mulaney sitcom. On the downside, the network has cut the first season order, from 16 to 13 installments. On the positive side, they haven't cancelled it -- yet.

Mulaney follows a rising stand-up comic John Mulaney (Mulaney) who's trying to take his career to the next level. He's both helped and hindered by his friends and mentors. The rest of the cast includes Martin Short, Nasim Pedrad, Seaton Smith, Zack Pearlman, and Elliott Gould.

The show has been doing very poorly in the ratings. It debuted to a lowly 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.3 million viewers. The second installment drew a 1.1 in the demo with 2.19 million. With numbers like these, Mulaney is sure to be cancelled but Fox doesn't seem willing to thrown in the towel just yet. They »

Lff 2014: Electric Boogaloo – The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films Review

18 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Damien Chazelle.

Running Time: 106 Minutes

Synopsis: A new love letter to exploitation cinema from the maker of Masters of the Universe and the Delta Force with Chuck Norris.

If you like your films brilliantly awful, then you would have seen some of Cannon’s work. They did the Death Wish sequels with Charles Bronson, the legendary He-Man movie Masters Of The Universe and Superman IV: The Quest For Peace, a film so cheap that they used an office block next to Milton Keynes train station as the Un headquarters. That’s absolutely true and anyone from Milton Keynes will tell you so. When they’re not too busy crying.

They also made America 3000, for which the trailer includes the line, ‘It is nine hundred years after the great nuke, and the role of women in society has changed, much to the displeasure of men. And mutants.’ It is »

London 2014: 'Altman' review

12 October 2014 3:14 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆With 39 features to his name, each as unique and innovative as the next, there are few American directors who come close to matching the prolific career of Robert Altman. Ron Mann would go one step further, describing Altman's films as distinctively "Altmanesque", a term he spends 95 minutes attempting to define in his latest documentary, Altman (2014). An affectionate exploration of Altman's life, Mann invites a wealth of this maverick filmmaker's best known collaborators and contemporaries to discuss his legacy, including the late Robin Williams, The Long Goodbye star Elliot Gould and Inherent Vice (2014) director Paul Thomas Anderson - who simply describes Altman with one word: "inspiration".

Interview: 'Mulaney' creator-star John Mulaney on his Fox comedy's learning curve

11 October 2014 9:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It can't be ignored that "Mulaney" premiered last Sunday night on Fox and the ratings weren't especially good. I got on the phone with creator-star John Mulaney on Thursday and made a promise up-front: I'd lead with quick ratings discussion and then never return to the topic and we stuck to it. The bottom line on that subject: Fox is 100 percent behind "Mulaney" and the network knows things will turn around. And what else would anyone say after one week? Mostly, we discussed the learning process on "Mulaney," which was originally developed at NBC, moved over to Fox and which is already far deeper into production than most freshman shows.  This week, in fact, found "Mulaney" working on its 13th episode, while Mulaney was also, at least according to Twitter, parlaying with old chum Bill Hader in advance of Hader's "SNL" hosting stint, so it's impressive both that he found time to chat all, »

Fox's Mulaney: Did It Stand Up to Your Expectations?

5 October 2014 7:02 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Before we discuss John Mulaney, the fictional protagonist of Fox’s new comedy Mulaney, allow me to confess something about John Mulaney, the real-life comedian: I am a huge fan of his pre-sitcom work.

Ever since I saw him do a bit about Girl Scout cookies on Saturday Night Live — back when he wrote for the show and introduced us to Stefon, the gift that keeps on giving — I was hooked. I know his stand-up specials backwards and forwards (and regularly quote them). Needless to say, I was thrilled when Mulaney finally landed his own sitcom.

The sitcom itself, though… »

'Mulaney' premiere react: A pilot with potential

5 October 2014 7:01 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Former Saturday Night Live writer John Mulaney's maiden voyage into the sitcom world took quite a beating even before Sunday night's premiere. The idea was sound: Mulaney's stand-up demeanor reminds more than a few observers of Jerry Seinfeld (who had a big TV show once upon a time), and Mulaney himself has often referenced how influenced and inspired he was by The Cosby Show. The comic was also one of the brains behind Bill Hader's character Stefon, one of the best recurring characters in SNL's history. Why wouldn't NBC assume that Mulaney would be a slam dunk? »

Series premiere talkback: 'Mulaney' - 'Pilot'

5 October 2014 6:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I posted my review of Fox's "Mulaney" on Thursday. Now it's your turn. For those of you who tuned in tonight, what did you think? Did you like John Mulaney the actor? How did you feel about his co-stars, whether young or old? Where does Andre the weed dealer fit on this fall's continuum of obnoxious ginger bearded sidekicks? Did Martin Short's performance remind anyone else of his "Would you like to buy a monkey?" audition tape from the David Letterman Oscars? Did Elliott Gould strike you as a person who even understood why he was on the show? Did you like the choice of the person to explain that "Mulaney" was shot in front of a live studio audience? Did any of it make you laugh? And will you watch again? Have at it. »

'Mulaney' Review: It's Like 'Seinfeld'... But Not Funny

3 October 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

'Mulaney's nearly identical format of 'Seinfeld', complete with copy-cat characters, leaves you with a bad case of déjà vu

Every TV fan knows that Fall is the most overwhelming season of the year. Why? One very simple reason: Too many shows and too little time.

TV Review: ‘Mulaney’

2 October 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At one point the star, namesake and creator of “Mulaney” refers to himself as a “Seinfeld ripoff,” which is not a good idea, even in jest. That’s because this uneven and uninspired Fox series exposes the difference between sharp observational comedy and funny sitcoms, and those that, well, aren’t. Beyond a “Seinfeld”-like framing device — John Mulaney opens each episode doing standup — and a couple of self-absorbed pals, the show proves inordinately flat, punctuated by a few moments of silliness that, ultimately, enough to justify still add up to less than nothing.

Young and fresh-faced, Mulaney approaches his material with a perplexed, self-effacing persona. Once the actual show begins, he’s a standup — living with another comic, named Motif (Seaton Smith) — who is forced to take a job writing for an aging comic star, Lou Cannon (Martin Short), presently relegated to hosting a daytime gameshow.

Review: Fox's 'Mulaney' can't convert stand-up to sitcom

2 October 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A lot of very smart and funny people who work in the TV comedy business are rooting for Fox's "Mulaney" to succeed for two reasons: 1)Star and creator John Mulaney is both a terrific stand-up comic and writer (at "SNL," he was responsible for making Bill Hader crack up at least once during every Stefon appearance); and 2)This gifted comedian and writer is concentrating his energy on making a traditional multi-camera sitcom, shot on a stage in front of a live audience — a format no one but CBS succeeds with anymore, even though many of us still have fond memories of "Cheers," "The Cosby Show," "Friends" and, yes, "Seinfeld," which is the inescapable structural model for "Mulaney." Comedy people want John Mulaney to succeed, and they want "Mulaney" to prove that someone other than Chuck Lorre can still make a good and popular multi-cam show. For many of the same reasons, »

TV Review: ‘Masters Of Sex,’ ‘Ray Donovan’ Finales Avoid Sophomore Jinx (Spoilers)

28 September 2014 8:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There was no sophomore jinx for Showtime’s “Masters of Sex” and “Ray Donovan,” with the former ending a truly terrific season on a relatively low-key note, while the latter’s finale contained more narrative fireworks, settling scores and potentially resetting the table on some key relationships. All told, the two series – introduced behind “Dexter” and “Homeland” – have established themselves as blue-chip players, with “Masters” shining brighter but “Ray” not lacking for visceral moments and showy, marquee roles.

Anchored by Michael Sheen (whose omission from the roster of Emmy nominees was a testament to the strength of that category) and Lizzy Caplan, “Masters of Sex” started the year on a strong note – peaking in its third episode, really a two-character study of the pair in a hotel room – and largely maintained those gaudy standards throughout.

Granted, the season finale (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched) didn’t involve any grand cliffhangers, »
