One thing you’ve got to hand to the SAG TV voters, they’re loyal to a fault. When it comes to the categories for individual acting, once they find someone they like, they stick with them.
Each year a host of veterans, not to mention a steady stream of series newcomers, is forced into the cold by familiar, entrenched names in comedy and drama alike.
So amidst the universal mourning for the “Breaking Bad” and “30 Rock” finales, there must have been a certain amount of secret glee among thesps. After all, the spot Bryan Cranston occupied in male actor, drama, for five consecutive years is now open for business, as are Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey’s in the comedy division, where they competed, and usually triumphed, a total of 15 times.
Opening up Cranston’s slot is particularly tantalizing, since the drama field is crowded indeed. Steve Buscemi of »

In 1946, the American town of Texarkana was rocked by a series of murders. Dubbed “The Moonlight Murders” by the press, these were real, tragic events that scarred the town. In 1976, Charles B. Pierce directed The Town That Dreaded Sundown, a film “based on true events” depicting the events of the killing spree thirty years earlier. There’s an ongoing tradition in Texarkana to show a drive-in screening of the film on Halloween every year.
And now in 2014, American Horror Story‘s Alfonso Gomez-Rejon has created a new version of Town that finds itself with a unique premise. Acknowledging that both the 1946 murders took place, and that the 1976 film was released, »

Anthony Anderson executive produces and stars in ABC's "Black-ish," and on Wednesday, the hilarious actor visited Access Hollywood Live to chat about the new show – as well as criticism the series has received for its name.
Most notably, Donald Trump took to Twitter to throw shade at "Black-ish," Tweeting, "How is ABC Television allowed to have a show called 'Blackish'? Can you imagine the furor of a show, 'Whiteish'! Racism at highest level?"
"We have those shows. They're called 'Modern Family.' They're called 'The Middle.' They're called everything that's on TV right now," Anthony told Billy Bush ...

It took longer than usual this fall, but someone finally pulled the trigger on a low-rated show. ABC was the first to bring the ax down by canceling Manhattan Love Story, a comedy that followed a new couple played by Analeigh Tipton (Crazy Stupid Love) and Jake McDorman (Aquamarine). Didn't catch it? You weren't alone - the comedy that featured the duo dating while engaging in kooky inner monologues with themselves only averaged 2.6 million viewers on Tuesday, which was its fourth and final episode. Moving forward, ABC will fill its Tuesday slot by running a second episode of Selfie. Still, »

1) I’m not just writing that because VH1 is paying me the big bucks to do so. Although, later on, I am looking forward to balling out of control at Forever 21 even though I’m ghorghor years old. What? VH1 isn’t paying me that much in order for me to reveal my age. 2) Yes, some of you are watching — ABC did recently give ask for a full season order — but the show is now hovering around the 6.5 million range, which is pretty decent, but I’m waiting for this show to become the breakout hit of the season. So without further ado, I present to you the seven reasons why Black-ish is the best TV show you’re not watching.
Tracee. Ellis. Ross.
ABC continues their search to find a new hit family sitcom for Wednesday nights. So many have failed and been cancelled. Will Black-ish be the next to go or will it be a success in the ratings and be renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
On Black-ish, patriarch Dre Johnson (Anthony Anderson) begins to wonder if his success has caused him and his family to lose touch with their roots. The rest of the family is played by Tracee Ellis Ross, Yara Shahidi, Marcus Scribner, Miles Brown, Marsai Martin, and Laurence Fishburne.
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 -- typically around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest. »
For a lot of years, television has been viewed as sort of second string to film. It was good, of course, but usually couldn’t match the quality of the high profile, big budget blockbusters we saw at the cinema. But recently, television has been making huge strides towards closing the gap, thanks to some tremendously innovative, groundbreaking programs. So it’s fair to say that in regards to the new crop of television shows premiering this fall, our expectations are understandably pretty high. We’ve gotten used to Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, and Orange is the New Black — goofy little Chuck Lorre comedies on NBC just aren’t going to cut it anymore for the discerning viewer. We have more refined tastes now.
The following shows are the programs that we think have the potential to be genuinely good. Tellingly, there’s a healthy mix between the networks, »

Division of household labor in a relationship can be a tricky task — especially when one half of the couple may have developed a slight video-game addiction.
In the following exclusive sneak peek from Wednesday’s installment of black-ish (9:30/8:30c), Dre (Anthony Anderson) gets called out by Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross) for failing to recognize the “1,000 invisible things” she does on a weekly basis to keep their household running.

ABC put in a full season order for “Black-ish” on Thursday after airing only three episodes of the family-centered comedy, but that should come as much of a surprise. The show has a talented cast of stars in Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis, Ross Yara Shahidi and Laurence Fishburne, and a favorable timeslot, but those aren't the only reasons why it has taken off.

This is one time "The Flash" didn't move fast enough. ABC has become the first network this fall to extend full-season orders, confirming the extended runs for "How To Get Away With Murder" and "Black-ish." The "How To Get Away With Murder" pick-up comes with a bit of a caveat. The Shonda Rhimes-produced, Peter Nowalk-created drama will air only 15 episodes this season, part of the price of getting into business with a star as busy and in-demand as Viola Davis. The restricted full season was always part of the plan and was discussed by ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee and by the producers at the TCA press tour over the summer. As for "Black-ish," the Anthony Anderson comedy got a full back-nine order and will air 22 episodes this season. The "Black-ish" pick-up comes after the show's third episode drew 8.28 million viewers and a 2.9 rating among adults 18-49, up from the previous week. »

ABC is the first out of the gate with full-season orders, picking up drama How to Get Away with Murder and comedy Black-ish. Shondaland’s Murder, which stars Viola Davis as an ethically dubious criminal law professor, has become the top series debut of the fall. The series delivered a whopping 14 million viewers and a 3.8 rating among adults 18-49 in its debut. The season will have 15 total episodes. The Anthony Anderson comedy Black-ish, meanwhile, debuted strong with 10.8 million viewers and a 3.3. The series had the highest-ever retention of Modern Family viewers for a regular comedy debut in the post-Family slot. »

This brings the episode totals to 22 for “Black-ish” and 15 for “Murder.”
“Murder,” which stars Viola Davis as a mastermind criminal lawyer and professor and has seen heavy promotion from the network’s “Tgit” marketing campaign, is the fall’s highest-rated new series in adults 18-49, averaging a 3.6 “live plus same-day” rating through two airings. The premiere also set DVR playback records, gaining about 6 million viewers within the first three days of its airing. It is created and executive produced by Pete Nowalk (“Scandal,” “Grey’s Anatomy”). Shonda Rhimes (“Scandal,” “Grey’s Anatomy”), Betsy Beers (“Scandal,” “Grey’s Anatomy”) and Bill D’Elia (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “The West Wing”) also serve as executive producers. “How to Get Away with Murder” is produced by ABC Studios. »
