‘Who Do You Think You Are’ Offers My Own History Lesson (Column)

15 August 2017 3:08 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Julie Bowen found out her ancestors were abolitionists. John Stamos learned his grandfather had been murdered. Jessica Biel found out she has Jewish roots. That’s the irresistible hook of TLC’s “Who Do You Think You Are,” which just earned an Emmy nomination for structured reality program. The producers work with to research celebrities’ roots, often finding surprises in even the most famous of family trees.

The research experts who coach the stars through their journey offered to do the same for me — albeit on a cursory level, since their research usually takes them a year. They just had about two weeks to do the digging for me.

First, a personal note: My father died suddenly about four years ago. He was, simply put, my rock, and I miss him desperately every day. So given the opportunity, I asked the team to explore his side of the family as a way of honoring his »

28 July 2017 6:31 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

27 July 2017 5:29 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Mindy Project” is heading into its sixth-and-final season, which launches on Hulu this September, and to kick off the farewell tour, Mindy Kaling sat down with the press at the Television Critics Association press tour.

Kaling was joined by executive producer Matt Warburton and star Ike Barinholtz, who showed up to TCA in a full neck brace, just one day after news broke of him breaking his neck on the set of a film.

“I had a couple of weeks where it was kind of touch and go,” Barinholtz admitted about his health after he broke his neck. He said he called Kaling to tell her that he may not be able to perform to his full potential on “Mindy Project,” given the severity of his injury — and her response was to incorporate his injury into the show.

“She was instantly like, ‘We’re going to write it into the show, whatever »

‘Modern Family’ Kids Set Two-Season Deal With Big Pay Bump

24 July 2017 11:33 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Manny, Luke, Haley and Alex will all be back with the family.

The core “Modern Family” kids have closed their deals to sign onto two more seasons of the ABC sitcom, Variety has learned. Insiders say “significant” pay raises were given to each of the young adult actors — Rico Rodriguez, Nolan Gould, Sarah Hyland and Ariel Winter.

Kids actors Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, who plays Lily, and Jeremy Maguire, who plays Joe, joined the series later on in its run and have more time left on their current deals, unlike the other four TV kids, who are now all adults and at least the age of 18 in real life.

ABC and 20th Century Fox Television declined to comment on the actor deals.

The close of the younger actors’ contracts marks the end of rather lengthy negotiations for the regular “Modern Family” cast, who are now all officially set for Seasons 9 and 10. In early May, ABC »

2017 Emmys: Co-Star Face-Offs Create a ‘Feud’ Across Multiple Categories

13 July 2017 10:41 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the Oscar-themed episode of FX’s “Feud,” Bette Davis and Joan Crawford went head-to-head at the 1963 Academy Awards. At the 2017 Emmys, life will imitate art, as “Feud” stars Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange are both up for the same award in the same category.

But it’s not just “Feud” that earned multiple acting nominations in the same categories. Other A-list shows, like HBO’s “Big Little Lies” and NBC’s “This Is Us” and “Saturday Night Live” also have their stars nominated beside each other — an exemplary “first-class problem,” as they say.

Lange and Sarandon are up against one another in the limited series or movie lead actress race alongside co-stars of “Big Little Lies,” Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon. Similarly, in the limited series or movie lead actor race, “The Night Of” stars John Turturro and Riz Ahmed are nominated against each other.

Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema have set aside the November 15, 2019 release date for their upcoming holiday comedy entitled Margie Claus, which has Melissa McCarthy set to star and produce, while co-writing the script.

George and Amal Clooney have officially joined the celebrities-with-twins club!

The adorable duo, who tied the knot in September 2014, welcomed their first children, a boy, Alexander, and a girl, Ella, on Tuesday. "I don't know how you fully digest [having two], but I'm excited," the first-time father told Et back in March. "It will be fun."

The next A-lister set to give birth to twins is Beyoncé. Her and husband Jay Z announced via Instagram in February that Blue Ivy would soon be a big sister to not one, but two bundles of joy. "We have been blessed two times over," the "Formation" singer said at the time.

Emmy Contenders 2017: Supporting Actress in a Comedy

Kate McKinnon took the prize last year and could repeat her win, thanks to several memorable “SNL” episodes that saw her reprise Hillary Clinton in the heat of the election, not to mention her touching Leonard CohenHallelujah” tribute. With the exception of Niecy Nash (“Getting On”), all of last year’s nominees are eligible this year: Mayim Bialik (“The Big Bang Theory”), Anna Chlumsky (“Veep”) and Gaby Hoffmann and Judith Light (“Transparent”). And while they missed out on a nod last year, never count out previous nominees Jane Krakowski (who married David Cross on this season of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) and Julie Bowen, who already has a pair of Emmys for her “Modern Family” role. There’s also Bowen’s co-star Sofia Vergara, who has four previous nominations for her role.

The Price Is Right had an extra exciting episode on Thursday, when one lucky contestant shattered the Plinko record -- though we're pretty sure he would've been thrilled to just have been on the show.

Contestant Ryan could not contain his excitement when host Drew Carey invited him up onstage, as he ran through the aisles cheering and high-fiving the crowd.

Ryan then went crazy when he found out he'd be playing the Plinko game, in which contestants drop a chip down a gigantic pinball board to land on a winning sum.
