Created by Burr and Simpsons writer-producer Michael Price, the series focuses on the exploits of the Murphy family in the '70s, "a time when you could smack your kid, smoke inside and bring a gun to the airport." Burr, whose TV resume includes such credits as  Breaking Bad and New Girl, will provide the voice for the family's patriarch, Frank, while Laura Dern will »

Amy Poehler on Life and Looks: 'I Don't Like Pretending Things Are Perfect'

22 October 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Amy Poehler will be the first to tell you: She's not some Hollywood babe. And that's just fine. "In a shallow business, I just had to come to terms with being really okay with not being … symmetrical," the Parks and Recreation star tells People. "You can spend your life trying to be [perfect], and you can tweak and nip and tuck, and then be afraid to move your face." Of course, staying confident is a tricky balancing act. "There's a line between feeling healthy, strong and sexy and feeling good about yourself, and being worried about how you measure up," says Poehler, »

The Millers: Season Two Ratings

21 October 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

This show was CBS' highest-rated new series of the 2013-14 season. Will The Millers continue to be a ratings success for the network? Cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.

Set in Leesburg, Virginia, The Millers follows a local TV news reporter (Will Arnett) who's been hiding his recent divorce from his parents. When they hear the news, his dad (Beau Bridges) his mom (Margo Martindale) are inspired to separate and each move in with their kids. The rest of the sitcom's cast includes J.B. Smoove, Jayma Mays, Nelson Franklin, Lulu Wilson, and Sean Hayes.

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 -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am »

Ratings: CBS's ‘The Millers’ Return Loses Half of ‘Big Bang Theory’ Lead-In

21 October 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

CBS's “The Millers” got a decent demo number in its sophomore season return on Monday, but dropped 33 percent from the series debut last fall. It also couldn't compare to its powerful lead-in, “The Big Bang Theory,” which doubled the demo rating of the Will Arnett sitcom on Monday night. NBC topped Monday's primetime in ratings, while ABC had the most viewers. The latter network was preempted by NFL coverage in Pittsburgh, however, which makes its early numbers subject to change. The CW is in the same boat, as it was preempted by the NFL game in Houston. NBC was first. »

Best Buds Will Arnett and Sean Hayes Dish on Working Together on The Millers

20 October 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Call it kismet. Call it the meeting of two great comedic forces. Call it a show not resting on its first-season laurels (as creator Greg Garcia does: "We want to keep that momentum going"). Will & Grace Emmy winner Sean Hayes joins off-screen buddy Will Arnett (Nathan) as a series regular on Season 2 of The Millers, and the results are unsurprisingly amusing. He plays Kip Finkle, newly divorced roommate to Nathan's mom, Carol (Margo Martindale), and foil to her TV reporter son. "Kip considers Nathan and his career kind of dumb," Garcia says, which leads to plenty of funny friction. Hayes and Arnett called us up for a slightly loopy chat before the Oct. 20 premiere...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Review

17 October 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Jonathan Liebesman.

Cast: William Fichtner, Will Arnett, Megan Fox, Whoopi Goldberg.

Certificate: 12A.

Running Time: 101 minutes.

Synopsis: Thirty years on from their comic book inception, Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael, are back once more to take down nemesis Shredder.

In the eighties and early nineties the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had children the world over in frenzy. The very successful cartoon series spawned a trilogy of films before the series got overtaken by the likes of The Power Rangers. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is the latest restart of the comic book franchise that started thirty years ago. After the disappointing animated films a few years ago the heroes in a half-shell are back in action, managing to encapsulate the fun and fantasy of the 1980’s cartoon series.

And what of the pizza loving team? Liebesman easily manages to display the four different personalities that we all know to be Leonardo, »

Turtle acceptance and suspension of disbelief

16 October 2014 12:35 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Have modern movies increased our ability to accept outlandish heroes like the Ninja Turtles? Yes, and it's a good thing, James writes...

There's a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie out. It's a franchise reboot, bringing the iconic brand back to the big-screen in a fresh live-action feature. You're probably familiar with Tmnt having consumed the Turtletastic mythos in some format - comics, cartoons, older movies, videogames, action figures, Lego and/or Vanilla Ice music videos.

Don't worry if you're not clued up on this cowabunga business, though, because I'm going to break it down and run over the basics on which this mighty multimedia property is built. Here's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a nutshell - or rather, in a turtle shell - as conceived by comics creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird way back in 1984.

The basic story - or at least, the high concept - goes like »

Release dates for next three Lego movies revealed

15 October 2014 11:01 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Warner Bros has confirmed when we can expect Lego: Batman, The Lego Movie 2 and Lego Ninjago

Perhaps lost a little in the midst of Warner Bros' sizeable collection of movie announcements yesterday was confirmation of a slight rejiggle of its Lego films slate.

Last week, it was revealed that a standalone Lego Batman movie was on the way, with Will Arnett returning to voice the brick version of Gotham's finest hero. And that has in turn led to some release changes.

So then. First up in the world of Lego films, we'll still be getting Lego Ninjago, and that's set to land on September 23rd 2016. The Lego Batman Movie, meanwhile, will take a May 26th 2017 release slot. And that means that The Lego Movie 2 is likely earmarked for May 25th 2018.

A further Lego movie is still apparently on the schedule for 2019, but we don't know the identity of that one yet. »

Amy Poehler 'Instantly Loved But Eventually Hated' Cocaine

15 October 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Amy Poehler on the effects of cocaine and ecstasy.

First she got real about divorce, and now it's on to drug use -- Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler has nothing to hide.

In her new memor Yes, Please, the beloved Saturday Night Live alum, 43, and Tina Fey bestie admits using both cocaine and ecstasy in her 20s.

The chapter, aptly titled "Obligatory Drug Stories" (via The Mirror), offers this candid confession: "I tried cocaine, which I instantly loved but eventually hated. Cocaine is terrific if you want to hang out with people you don't know very well and play ping-pong all night. It's bad for almost everything else … The day after cocaine is rough."

She also recalls taking ecstasy at a memorable Ucb (comedy group United Citizens Brigade) New Year's Eve party.

The crowd "danced and drank water and loved each other," she remembers »

Thn’s Top Ten Eighties Cartoon Classics

15 October 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Can you believe that it has been thirty years since we were first introduced to Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo? Well it has been, and the crime-fighting mutant ninjas are still as popular with the kids as ever. In fact later this week we will be treated to a new big-screen incarnation of the team, with Megan Fox playing April, Will Arnett as Vernon and William Fichtner playing new arrival businessman, Erik Saks.

With the turtles plastered all over the television, buses and magazines, it stirred a sense of nostalgia in us Thn folks. Many among us recall watching the cartoon series that started in 1987, with most still able to sing all the words to the theme song. And it wasn’t just Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that kept us entertained; the eighties were crammed full of quality cartoon series. Don’t believe us? You will, as we have composed »
