Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, said he hopes the net’s summer slate points to the quality, variety and stability of the network’s programming.
“It’s a wonderful mix of old and new partners we’re working with … people known for making quality television,” Wright told Variety. “This really helps us burnish the brand.”
The diverse summer slate underscores the evolution of that brand, which not too long ago was driven almost entirely by crime shows like “The Closer.”
“We love our crime dramas, but we’re now programming in several genres… »

A&E has pulled Those Who Kill from the schedule after two weeks. The crime drama has failed to hold onto the audience of its lead-in Bates Motel. However, A&E isn’t cancelling the show yet, the channel plans on relaunching the show.
CBS has renewed The Big Bang Theory for three seasons. That will keep the show on the air until the spring of 2017.
This works as a still from tonight’s episode or as a group reaction to the renewal.
If you want to see the best challenges in reality TV you should be watching the amazing King of the Nerds, which airs its finale tonight. Then again, it’s impossible to do any better than to have a “navigate a laser maze to rescue George Takei” challenge.

When a reality show like "Flipping Out" has been on the air for the better half of a decade, you pretty much know what you're going to get with every new season. That's not a bad thing if the show knows how to entertain. Luckily, "Flipping Out" does.
With the premiere of Season 7 on Wednesday (March 5), things at Jeff Lewis Design are same as they ever were -- with just a few minor changes. For starters, business is booming for Jeff, with a handful of new, high-profile clients seeking our favorite Ocd designer's services. Jeff's had some big clients in the past, but "CSI" star George Eads and Zack Morris himself, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, are some pretty big gets, if you ask us.
The other major change? Newlywed assistant Jenni, whose wedding was a central focus in Season 6, is pregnant. Like, super, ready-to-pop pregnant. Her impending motherhood looks to be a »
“This is a hand-to-hand tournament, not a hand-to-claw tournament!”
The Pete Holmes Show is back with another installment of "Street Fighter Red Tape." The first video featured Ryu attempting to transcribe his battle cries. This new video stars Thomas Middleditch as the Spanish fighter Vega, who is requesting to use his claw and mask in the Street Fighter tournament.
I think Middleditch is an awesome actor, but this is the third video he’s done for the show — he played both Gambit and Nightcrawler in the "Ex-Men" sketches. When they had Mark-Paul Gosselaar portray Ryu for the first video in the series, I assumed they’d be reaching out to more guest stars to play these characters. Middleditch does a fantastic job nevertheless, and the outtakes (which I’ve also included below) are just as funny as the actual skit.

Between its litany of pretaped sketches, its unique interview methods, and its host’s largely personal monologues, The Pete Holmes Show doesn’t look like a typical late-night talk show. And that’s sort of the point. “We’re going for a very transparent, authentic, silly, safe, fun show,” Holmes says. “Safe, but not boring.”
Clearly, Holmes and co. are doing something right — their Conan O’Brien-produced experiment returns to TBS Monday at midnight. Shortly after Holmes taped his first post-hiatus episode, he spoke with EW about getting guests to open up, getting advice from Conan, and getting Mark-Paul Gosselaar »

Crisis’ Joshua Erenberg has signed with Paradigm, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The actor, 13, is a series regular on NBC’s political conspiracy thriller, which premieres March 16. Erenberg plays Anton Roth, one of the students on a field trip ambushed by a mysterious band of operatives. Gillian Anderson and Dermot Mulroney star. Earlier this year Erenberg guest-starred as a pint-size bully in an episode of Fox’s Dads. He has had a recurring role on ABC’s Suburgatory as A.J., the rich-kid tennis partner of grown man Noah, and portrayed a younger version of Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s

The Pete Holmes Show seems to have run out of X-Men members to fire in their “Ex-Men” series of sketches. They now have a hilarious new video (in a presumably ongoing series of new sketches) revolving around Street Fighter. It stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar as fan-favorite Ryu, who must get his battle cries approved for the global broadcasting of the tournament.
I think Holmes and his team are doing great things on TBS. Their Ex-Men sketches may have run out of steam towards the end — with Holmes’ Professor X becoming progressively meaner and petty — but I love that they’re tackling all of these slightly sacred geek properties. They do a fantastic job of playfully exploring their worlds while also exposing some of their weaker points. I’m looking forward to seeing more of these “Street Fighter Red Tape” videos.
