30 July 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Today, Katie Couric said farewell to her cancelled daytime talk show, Katie, after two seasons. The show was reportedly dropped due to mediocre ratings and high costs.

There were also plenty of taped farewells from stars like Betty White, Barbra Streisand, Jimmy Kimmel, and Drew Brees.

True Detective is nominated for outstanding actor (Matthew McConaughey), miniseries (though the show submitted in the drama category for the Emmys), outstanding new program, and the TCA Awards’ top category, »

TCA Awards Nominees include 'Breaking Bad,' 'True Detective' & 'Orange Is the New Black'

27 May 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A glut of great TV shows makes it hard to recognize every show worth of it, but the members of the Television Critics Association did our best in picking the nominees for this year's TCA Awards. So "Breaking Bad" got three nominations, and will have to tussle with "True Detective" in two of those categories (Bryan Cranston vs. Matthew McConaughey for Individual Achievement in Drama, and for Program of the Year), but "Mad Men" didn't get any nominations this time out.(*) Great new shows like "True Detective," "Orange Is the New Black" and "Fargo" got multiple bits of recognition, though there was at times category confusion. the movies/minis category, for instance, includes "True Detective," "Fargo" and "American Horror Story: Coven," all of which are telling season-long stories but will likely continue with new stories and characters next year, but also "Broadchurch" and "The Returned," which are producing sequel seasons »

28 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dancing With the Stars embraced the Latin Night theme this week with guest judge and performer Ricky Martin and the celebrity contestants taking on Latin dances with their professional partners.

Dancing With The Stars Recap

Following Martin’s performance of 2014 World Cup anthem “Vida,” Amy Purdy and Derek Hough stepped onto the dance floor to perform a rumba. Hough seemed to slow down the dance for Purdy, who looked a bit more rigid than she has in past weeks. Carrie Ann Inaba took issue with Purdy’s technique at one point in the dance, but still found it enjoyable. Scores: 9+9+9+9=36

After finding out he was in jeopardy, James Maslow had to take on a samba with Peta Murgatroyd. The chemistry between Maslow and Murgatroyd is undeniable, though both have been adamant that their off-screen relationship is anything more than platonic. The energy and sexiness of the dance was there, but »
