Did Homeland Cheat Death? Is Benched Courting Big Laughs? Messy Affairs? Are Girlfriends Vapid? And More TV Qs

26 December 2014 10:57 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Homeland, The Affair, Major Crimes and Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce!

1 | Does anyone find Saturday Night Live’s “Garth and Kat” the slightest bit funny? Let alone enough that it calls for Kristen Wiig to consume valuable Weekend Update time?

2 | Did any Homeland viewer not fret that Quinn’s truck was going to blow up? (And wasn’t it a relief that it didn’t?) And wasn’t it odd that Carrie embarked on »

Ground Floor: Season Two Ratings

17 December 2014 6:59 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

It seems that TBS is raising their ratings standards for their original sitcoms. After all, the cable channel has cancelled Men at Work and Sullivan & Son and, Cougar Town is ending. The ratings for Ground Floor weren't very strong last year so could it already be destined to be cancelled? How will the numbers be this time around -- good enough for the sitcom to earn a third season? Stay tuned.

Ground Floor follows the romantic relationship of a young hotshot banker (Skylar Astin) and a beautiful maintenance worker (Briga Heelan). The rest of the sitcom's cast includes Rory Scovel, Rene Gube, James Earl, Emily Heller, and John C. McGinley.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings »

Interview: Co-Executive Producer Cindy Caponera of ‘Ground Floor’

9 December 2014 8:07 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – December 9th is the 2014 second season premiere of “Ground Floor,” the TBS workplace comedy featuring John C. McGinley (“Scrubs”), plus Skylar Astin and Briga Heelan (seen in the film “Pitch Perfect”). Chicago native Cindy Caponera is a writer and co-executive producer on the show.

In a variation on the “Slobs versus the Snobs” scenario, “Ground Floor” is set in a financial company that features a romance between an occupant of the upper floors – where the master-of-the-universe financial consultants hold court – and a worker on the “ground floor,” where the operations and maintenance crew resides. A big part of the hilarity is provided by John C. McGinley, playing a mentor character as in “Scrubs,” but in a softer and gently funny way. The chemistry between the featured couple, portrayed by Astin and Heelan, provides the conflict between the two parts of the company.

We Decided to Rank J.D.’s Girlfriends on Scrubs

13 November 2014 4:37 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Scrubs was one of NBC’s critically acclaimed, but poorly rated sitcoms of the 2000’s. It was also close to being cancelled every season, but somehow the show would continue to survive. NBC finnally pulled the plug on the series after the conclusion of its seventh season after being ranked the 115 most watched show of the entire 2007-2008 television season. ABC would come to the rescue and pick the comedy up for an eighth season. Scrubs would return for season nine but would only feature J.D. (Zach Braff), Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley), and Turk (Don Faison) teaching at a medical school. During those nine seasons, Dr. John Dorian had many girlfriends. We decided to rank the top 10 for your reading pleasure. 10. Danni Sullivan (Tara Reid) Trust me. I am not a Tara Reid fan by any means. However, she barely makes the list playing Danni Sullivan, Jordan’s younger sister. »

War Films at the Oscars

13 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Set during the final months of World War II, Fury follows a tank commander (played by Brad Pitt) and his crew as they head into Nazi Germany as part of the Allies’ final push. The film also stars Logan Lerman, Shia Labeouf, John Bernthal and Michael Pena. The Hollywood Reporter’s Todd McCarthy said the film is “a modern version of the sort of movie Hollywood turned out practically every week back in the 1940s and 1950s.” Fury opens Oct. 17.

Could Fury score a best picture nomination at the 87th Academy Awards? Both war biopics and fictional war films — about real wars or battles — have historically done well at the Oscars; however, the current projections show that the race will be a tight one. Here’s a look at some of the fictional war films that scored nominations for best picture:

Sorry, Scrubs fans: Ground Floor will not be reuniting Christa Miller and John C. McGinley.

As EW first reported, Miller was slated to play the wife of McGinley’s Mr. Mansfield, but she had to back out because of production demands on the final season of TBS’ Cougar Town.

Interview: Zach Braff Kickstarts His New Film ‘Wish I Was Here’

14 July 2014 7:19 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Zach Braff is an amiable personality, making his mark as “J.D.” on the TV sitcom “Scrubs” and the cult film “Garden State” (2004), which he wrote and directed. For his most recent project, he made show business headlines by using the website Kickstarter to “crowd fund” his latest film, “Wish I Was Here.”

Wish I Was Here,” like “Garden State,” is a coming-of-age film. But this time Braff – who stars in the film, co-wrote it with his brother Adam, and directed it – portrays a 35 year old struggling actor with a wife (Kate Hudson) and two kids, coming to terms with his father’s (Mandy Patinkin) illness and possible passing. Like “Garden State,” it has a dream-like quality to it, while dealing with a different phase of life.

The Definitive War Movies: 10-1

2 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Here we are, at the top of the mountain. We’ve had plenty from every war imaginable, some supportive of war efforts, some not. But the more interesting war films really focus on the people; the internal struggles those men and women have about what they are doing. Whether made in America, Germany, the United Kingdom, or anywhere else, war is not just a battle between good and evil. It’s a life and death struggle between opposing sides that may not be that different. The movies at the top of this list may be subtle or straightforward, but each of them is a clear snapshot that lets audiences see what it means to fight, so they don’t have to.

Directed by: Stanley Kurbick

Conflict: World War I

Looking back at Clone High

24 June 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark looks back at Phil Lord and Chris Miller's ahead-of-its-time animated MTV series, Clone High...

Feature

Previously, on a very special episode of Clone High...

“Way, way back in the 1980s, secret government employees dug up famous guys and ladies and made amusing genetic copies. Now the clones are sexy teens and they're gonna make it if they try.”

So goes the theme tune to Clone High, the MTV animated series that ran for one season from 2002 to 2003. As a concept for a TV series goes, there's a hell of a lot of mileage in doing a teen drama featuring the likes of Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi, Joan of Arc, John F Kennedy and Cleopatra in school together.

The series was animated in the style of Genndy Tartakovsky’s hand-drawn animated series, such as Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack, with stylised character design and slightly more limited movement, making »

10 Most Unwatchable TV to Movie Adaptations

10 June 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

22 Jump Street is in theaters this weekend, and its one of the few TV-to-Movie franchises that has gotten it right. This comes after so many have gotten it really wrong! Adapting a hit television show to the big screen seems like it would be an easy thing. The source material is great, there's an existing audience, it should be money in the bank. But bigger does not mean better. There's more than enough examples of great TV turned into garbage cinema. So much so, there was a fair amount of difficulty and debate narrowing it down to ten, epically awful movies. Criteria had to be established. There must be a method to this madness. Terrible films like The Smurfs, Scooby Doo, Yogi Bear, or The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas still has an appeal to younger audiences who might actually be entertained by it. It does have some value.

Interview: Bill Lawrence and Adam Sztykiel on 'Undateable' and The State of TV Comedy

29 May 2014 1:21 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I interviewed "Undateable" executive producer Bill Lawrence and Adam Sztykiel at a noisy bar in Pasadena shortly before a press conference in mid-April. Going back and transcribing the 35-minute interview is bittersweet. At the time, Lawrence had two shows in limbo -- TBS' "Cougar Town" and Fox's newly premiered "Surviving Jack," which he EPed along with creators Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker. While Lawrence wasn't directly involved with "Enlisted," he has a close relationship with "Enlisted" and "Cougar Town" creator Kevin Biegel, whose comedy was newly shelved. Since that time, "Enlisted" and "Surviving Jack" were both cancelled. "Cougar Town" was renewed for a final season on TBS. At the time, Lawrence also wasn't feeling especially confident about "Undateable." The multi-cam sitcom, which features Chris D'Elia as seemingly cocksure ladies man Danny, who mentors the less confident Justin (Brent Morin) and his group of allegedly "undateable" friends.
