Calling all Friends fans in (or with access to) New York City: You’re about to get an exciting perk. Central Perk, that is.
Warner Bros. and Eight O’Clock Coffee are partnering to re-create the NBC sitcom’s iconic coffee shop in New York City this fall, Entertainment Weekly was first to report.
In addition to providing free coffee, the pop-up location in downtown Manhattan will allow visitors to take photos on the orange couch from the show, enjoy weekly musical performances — perhaps David Schwimmer will have another go on the keyboard? — and play trivia games. Bonus: James Michael Tyler »

The animated character BoJack Horseman may be a washed up sitcom star on the show, but his self-titled Netflix Original series is a soaring success, it would seem. Although it has been streaming on the popular service for less than a week, the powers-that-be at Netflix have bestowed a renewal upon the animation – guaranteeing its return for a further 12 episodes.
Created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg and based on a character design by Lisa Hanawalt, BoJack Horseman tells the tale of a former TV star, that once starred in a fictional 1990s sitcom called Horsin’ Around. The end of that series, according to the show, resulted in the lead star spiralling on failed relationships, self-loathing and self destruction, with a cast of supporting characters around, enabling him all the way. The incredible tones of Will Arnett feature in the role of BoJack, and the rest of the cast is led by Aaron Paul, »

Despite all the suggestions that we’re in a new golden age of television, there’s still plenty of hand-wringing and pearl clutching over the phenomenon of binge watching. Some argue simply that it undermines the experience. It’s also been suggested that binge watching can kill.
That a lot of us are binging, particularly on streaming content, is clear. The health scare aspect seems to ignore that concerns over how much is too much go back to at least the 1980s. The argument that we’re somehow depriving ourselves by not seeing a series as originally intended (complete with months-long, between-seasons hiatuses) ignores the very basic human tendency to want more of what we like. Binge watching is perhaps the highest compliment that can be paid to an ongoing series.
Which brings us to Netflix’s latest original series, Bojack Horseman. It’s so elegantly conceived and wonderfully written that, »

Netflix has put its faith in a horse. The streaming service has renewed BoJack Horseman for a second season of 12 episodes, EW has confirmed.
Arrested Development alum Will Arnett voices the animated comedy’s titular character, a failed sitcom star trying to turn his life around with the help of his former sidekick (Aaron Paul) and his ex-lover (Amy Sedaris).
The news, first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, comes just four days after BoJack Horseman debuted on Netflix. »

The Emmy Awards are on NBC at 5 p.m. Monday, but the celebrations start early. Variety will be on hand inside the best parties around Hollywood as the stars mingle, nibble and toast to TV’s finest. Here’s our party report for Sunday, Aug. 24:
11:55 a.m. ICM Partners’ annual brunch has become a welcome respite from the swirl of nighttime events on Emmy weekend. Waiters with cups of Sangria spiked with apple slices and grapes greeted guests on the steps of Chris Silbermann’s Santa Monica home. The brunch was fantastic — fresh crepes made on the spot, blintzes, all manner of egg dishes and fruit. There’s a reason we skipped breakfast.

Before Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got off the ground, the producer met with several different visual effects houses to determine which companies will work on the film. Over the weekend, concept artist Anthony Francisco shared the concept artwork he made for Illusion Industries, as a part of the company's pitch to work on the project.
While the company wasn't hired by the producers, this artwork shared on Anthony Francisco's Facebook page is much different than the finished look of these heroes in a half-shell. Take a look at the illustrations below, along with the artist's comments.
"When Martin Astles (Head Sculptor at Illusion Industries) told me that Michael Bay wanted to do a Tmnt movie, I started doing these concepts to help Illusion get the project. We did get a chance to meet with the producers and the meeting went well but we did not get the gig. »
Netflix has done some revolutionary work with its original content library, but the premium online platform has not made a huge mark with its comedy series. Out of all of Netflix's originals, the tepidly-received fourth season of Arrested Development was the only true sitcom, until now. Netflix has offered up BoJack Horseman, an animated comedy that stars Will Arnett as the vain equine star of a fictional 90s sitcom. BoJack takes place in a world where humans frequently intermingle with talking animals. Of the show's five main characters, Arnett's BoJack, Paul F. Tomkins' Mr. Peanutbutter, and Amy Sedaris' Princess Carolyn are animals (a horse, a dog, and a cat, respectively) while Alison Brie's Diane and Aaron Paul's Todd are humans. This anthropomorphic setup is often played for punny laughs (take, for example, a Navy Seal character who is actually a seal), but the heart of BoJack lies »

If I Stay, based on the novel of the same name by Gayle Forman and starring Chloë Grace Moretz, proved a draw for young audiences. Its $6.8 million opening day put it ahead of Marvel’s latest blockbuster, which added an estimated $4.8 million to its domestic total of $239.1 million. But tracking suggests the lead for the Ya adaptation directed by R.J. Cutler may »

Pee-wee’s next big adventure is landing him on The Blacklist.
The NBC drama has tapped Paul Reubens (Pushing Daisies, Dirt) to appear in multiple Season 2 episodes as Mr. Vargas, a dapper, finicky “muscle” who handles delicate situations in the criminal underworld, EW.com reports.

Entertainment Weekly: Okay, obviously we need to start with the Ice Bucket Challenge. How nervous were you about doing that on live television and how did it feel when Will Arnett dumped that water on you?
Julie Chen: I was sooooo excited to do this on live television. It’s the only way you can’t back out or run away….you must commit. I was adamant that the bucket had to be equal parts »

(Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Thursday night's live eviction episode of “Big Brother.”) Julie Chen took the Als Ice Bucket Challenge live amid a wild night of departures and returns on “Big Brother.” She was challenged by CBS head honcho and her husband Les Moonves to take the challenge live on “Big Brother,” and so she wrapped the night by getting all wet. “The Millers” star Will Arnett was there to give her an assist by dumping the water.

I'm checking in on Thursday's (August 21) "Big Brother" after spending my afternoon and evening on the set of Fox's yet-to-shoot "Utopia," a new reality show that's exactly like "Big Brother" except for all of the ways it's completely different. "Utopia" isn't a competition and while people are sent home, they aren't "eliminations," per se. Also, nobody wins. Somebody will definitely win on "Big Brother." And somebody will definitely go home, or at least to the Jury House, with the catch being that according to Julie Chen, tonight's episode will also feature the return of a recently eliminated hamster. So it sounds like tonight's "Big Brother" will actually be a zero-sum game? Let's find out, after the break... 9:02 p.m. We pick up in the aftermath of Zach being put on the Block by Frankie and basically being told that he's doomed. "I'm down by a field goal. It might »

Big Brother, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
CBS’ reality staple has long been my annual guilty pleasure. While some may see it as nothing more than kitschy summer fodder — and, granted, it is — it’s also much more fun and clever than it’s ever given credit for.
Take, for example, Thursday’s live eviction show, which sent one houseguest packing and brought another evictee back into the game, all in the span of an hour. If you’re a Big Brother fan, you know episodes like these are enjoyable, intense and thoroughly entertaining. I wish I knew »
Billy on the Street’s Eichner—who first tweeted a photo of himself on set with Margo Martindale on Wednesday—will play Leon, the ex-husband of Sean Hayes’ new character Kip, who has had a long-standing crush on Nathan (Will Arnett). To make Leon jealous, Nathan will pose as Kip’s new lover in the season premiere.

This weekend, Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez throw another punch in "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," the hard-boiled sequel starring Jessica Alba, Eva Green, Josh Brolin, and many more; HBO's "True Blood" wraps up its final season Sunday night after a seven-year run; the 31st MTV Video Music Awards airs live Sunday, with performances by Iggy Azalea, Taylor Swift, and others; and Seth Meyers hosts the 66th annual Emmy Awards Monday night on NBC.
Also in theaters this weekend: "If I Stay" stars Chloe Grace Moretz as a talented young musician whose life changes in an instant after a car accident puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she must decide how to proceed with her drastically different life. "When the Game Stands Tall" tells the story of legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur, who took De La Salle High School from obscurity to a record-shattering 151-game winning streak. »

Pete checks out Netflix animation Bojack Horseman, and finds a bold, hilariously dark comedy featuring a cast at the top of its game...
Over the last few years, Netflix has steadily gone from being a supplier who helps us binge on our favourite TV shows to a legitimate producer in its own right. Not content with merely reviving one of television’s wittiest sitcoms in the form of Arrested Development, they’ve gone on to create award-winning dramas such as House Of Cards and Orange Is The New Black.
Bojack Horseman is Netflix’s first foray into animated comedy, and it follows a delusional faded sitcom star (the titular Horseman, who happens to be an anthropomorphised talking horse for reasons that are, happily, left unexplained) whose only companions are his agent and on-again-off-again girlfriend Princess Carolyn (herself a pink cat), his long-term layabout house guest Todd, his ghost-writer Diane, and Mr Peanutbutter, »
