As we ponder how series 8's music will sound, Jeff digs out ten inventive takes on the Doctor Who theme...
With series eight’s Deep Breath fast approaching, there are questions all Dw fans will be asking – perhaps none as pressing as “What new bag of tricks will Murray Gold be bringing to the theme song?” While we all wait with bated breath, why not take a gander at these variations on Ron Grainer’s immortal work?
Doctor Who Theme – Gallifrey Remixes (Dominic Glynn and Syzygy)
Dominic Glynn’s theme from Trial Of A Timelord is an 80s effort that’s worn well for this writer, particularly the way Glynn sneaks in a new array of far-out soundscapes. This remix, originally performed at L.A.’s Gallifrey One convention, features four upgrades of Glynn’s ‘Trial’ theme, as produced with Syzygy (a.k.a. Justin Mackay). It takes a »

With the Broadway box-office enjoying a banner season - with $1.27 billion in ticket sales, despite the harshest winter in years - Sunday night brought the theater's biggest night: the 68th annual Tony Awards. And it was an especially good night for Broadway record setter Audra McDonald, winner of best dramatic actress for Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill - her sixth Tony. McDonald's historic win - at age 43 - topped Angela Lansbury and Julie Harris's previous records of five acting Tonys each, and the Radio City Music Hall audience acknowledged the significance of the achievement with a prolonged standing ovation. »

I was in London two weeks ago and caught four plays -- Well, three plays and one musical -- in three days, so when the Olivier Awards roll around, I'll be well-prepared. However, with Josh Lasser handling most of the New York junkets for Team HitFix, I haven't made it to NYC since Fall 2012, which would also be the last time I made it to Broadway. As a result, I've seen none of this year's Tony nominees. So follow along for full coverage of what I'm able to understand from the 2014 Tony Awards. I know Hugh Jackman is hosting. I know Neil Patrick Harris is both a performer and a guaranteed winner. Click through for the full live-blog and comment below, should the spirit move you! 7:55 p.m. Et.

Maya Rudolph has proven time and again that she can sing and make people laugh out loud. Now the question is whether she can breathe new life into a TV staple once thought part of the cultural flotsam of the 1970s.
She will appear on NBC Monday in “The Maya Rudolph Show,” a 10 p.m. special the Peacock bills as a means of “revisiting the classic variety show format.” No less than “Saturday Night Live” impresario Lorne Michaels is the executive producer. Andy Samberg, Kristen Bell, and Fred Armisen are among the guests. Janelle Monae will sing. There’s even a bandleader – retro-soul artist Raphael Saadiq.
“What we found and what I feel emboldened us is there was no shortfall of people that wanted to put their hand up to what I’d describe as ‘play with Maya,’” said Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and latenight programming at NBC Entertainment. »

CBS had a solid premise with 'The McCarthys.' A close-knit family of varying interests, personalities, and sexual orientations who love and supporg each other through wacky sitcom hijinks. But something terrible happened between conception and execution. Somehow what should be a progressive comedy reads like The Disney Channel trying to write sitcoms aimed at adults. #1 - We're opening with deadpan narration over stock photos. Is this a clever parody of terrible 80s sitcoms? #2 - It has to be. No one unironically laughs at loving 'Dunkin Donuts' as a punchline. #3 - These people are the Mafia. This is a mob sitcom. How else do you end up in houses that close to each other unless the former owners' have accidents or are bribed? #4 - Oh man how embarrassing. They dubbed the first table read over the this 'clever' exchange about basketball teams. How is 'Miami Sound Machine' even a punchline? »

Politics may make strange bedfellows, but Washington D.C.'s most star-studded night always makes for some interesting table talk. At the 100th annual White House Correspondents Association dinner, emceed this year by Joel McHale, expect to see the usual oddball mix of celebrities seated with politicians seated with media folk, who host tables in a massive ballroom under the Washington Hilton. To the uninitiated, watching the A-listers make their way to their seats seems a bit like Harry Potter's Hogwarts "sorting hat" is at work sending each boldface name to the right place. Where's Anna Kendrick headed? She'll be at the Huffington Post's table, »
For those of us who don’t get invited to the White House Correspondents Dinner (and are 100 percent bitter about it), the majority of the event’s fun comes from hearing which random trainwreck celebrities show up each year. Did Lindsay Lohan pop in again? What about Ozzy Osbourne?
So the bad news for all of us stuck at home on May 3 — again, totally bitter — is that 2014′s dinner is looking disappointingly normal. For starters, Joel McHale is serving as the evening’s entertainer, which sets a healthy, funny tone for the night. And whom will McHale be entertaining? The Wrap reports that Rosario Dawson, »

Craig Ferguson announced that he is stepping down from The Late Late Show. His last show will come at the end of the year, which means CBS’ late night will get a complete reboot in 2015. Ferguson will walk away with the longest run as Late Late Show host, having been on the show for ten years, beating Tom Snyder‘s four years and Craig Kilborn‘s five (yes, just five, it only felt like it would never end). At least four late night talk shows (both of CBS’ shows, The Colbert Report and Chelsea Lately) will be different next year. So far we only know who will take over one of those shows.
We’re finally getting more episodes of HBO’s lamented one season wonder The Comeback. E! reports that a six episode “event series” is about to start filming. Series co creator Michael Patrick King will return »
