Welcome back to the fold, Captain Cragen (Dann Florek) and Bayard Ellis (Andre Braugher)! Now go deal with "Perverted Justice." So what's brought Bayard Ellis back into Sgt. Olivia Benson's (Mariska Hargitay) life? And why are they at dinner? And is that spark igniting?! And how can we get NBC to give us updates on Baby Noah and the adoption every hour? "Such a sweet boy," Ellis says. "He has your smile." "If everything goes as planned then the adoption will be official in a month," Benson says. Be still our Baby Noah-loving »

Review: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' - 'AC/DC': Falling down

26 April 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" coming up just as soon I've lost the right to pee... Though "AC/DC" aired more than a month after the most recent episode, the two still feel linked to me in the ways that they've tried, to mixed success, to lay some emotional foundation underneath Jake's usual antics. In "Sabotage," he admitted that he can't sit back and let other people help him because of abandonment issues from his dad, but the moment was so brief that it felt more like a distraction than anything else. Here, he eventually tells Terry and Charles the real reason why he can't let go of any case: the one time he did it, the perp stayed free long enough to kill a few innocent people. Here, it didn't feel like the show was trying to skimp on the dramatic beat, but rather that it maybe didn't »

Dann Florek Returning to ‘Law & Order: Svu’ for One Episode

1 April 2015 4:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Law & Order: Svu” is bringing back two familiar faces — Dann Florek and Andre Braugher.

Both actors will return for one guest star shot in the same episode, Variety has confirmed.

“Law & Order” vet Florek made his departure from “Svu” during the 15th season, after spending 14 years as Captain Cragen on the procedural since its start in 1999. Before “Svu,” he starred in the same role on the original flagship for the first three seasons, making guest appearances throughout the series.

Braugher, currently co-starring opposite Andy Samberg on Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” has recurred five times on “Svu,” and also made one guest appearance on “Law & Order,” at the start of his career.

On the upcoming episode, Florek will reprise his role as the now-retired Cragen, TV Guide first reported, to help the squad reopen a rape case, which Braugher’s attorney character is working on.

Florek and Braugher’s episode airs this May. »

Review: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' - 'Sabotage': I'm never gonna dance again

15 March 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of tonight's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" coming up just as soon as I update my jerk rolodex... Of late, "Brooklyn" has toggled back and forth between episodes with two stories and episodes with three, and the latter group often ends up feeling rushed throughout. That mostly wasn't the case with the subplots of "Sabotage," which each had a couple of funny ideas at their core — Holt and Terry disagree about whether to lie to Gina about missing her dance performance, and Boyle is forced to work a case with Scully and Hitchcock, who turn out to be secretly competent — and executed them well. (I don't know that the show "needed" to ever tell us that Scully and Hitchcock can actually do the job when they feel like it, but it will add some texture to all their future idiocy.) The eponymous story pitting Jake against the return of Chris Parnell »

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' exclusive: Captain Holt solves the brain-teaser

12 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The latest episode of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" featured a subplot where Captain Holt gave his underlings the following brain-teaser: There are twelve men on an island. Eleven weigh exactly the same amount, but one of them is slightly lighter or heavier. You must figure out which. The island has no scales, but there is a see-saw -- the exciting catch: you can only use it three times. The "Brooklyn" detectives couldn't solve the problem, but many of you quickly went to work to figure it out. Now for confirmation, here's an exclusive clip of Andre Braugher as Captain Holt explaining the exciting manner of solving it. Enjoy. A new episode of "Brooklyn" airs Sunday night at 8:30 Eastern on Fox. »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

10 March 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After three straight years with four of the six supporting comedy actor slots belonging to "Modern Family," last year finally saw the majority figure cut in half with only Ty Burrell and Jesse Tyler Ferguson making the cut (and Burrell winning). Ed O'Neill and/or Eric Stonestreet could make a comeback, or maybe the "Family" love will reduce further this time around? That all depends on whether Tony Hale ("Veep"), Fred Armisen ("Portlandia"), Adam Driver ("Girls") and/or Andre Braugher ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine") can return from last year, and if Martin Sheen ("Grace and Frankie"), Sam Waterson ("Grace and Frankie"), Laurence Fishburne ("Blackish") and/or Josh Gad ("The Comedians") can squeak in for their shows' first seasons.

19 February 2015 1:35 PM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

It’s time you meet your new favorite actress, How To Get Away with Murder star Aja Naomi King. You’ll get along great because she loves Shonda Rhimes, Beyoncé, and Empire‘s Cookie Lyon as much as you do.

VH1 caught up with the up-and-coming star, who dished on the behind-the-scenes action of Murder (Shonda!) and how she feels about diversity being at the forefront of TV’s current lineup. Did we mention she supports Fifty Shades of Grey? Yes, she rocks.

How are you feeling about season 1 coming to an end?

It’s kind of sad, we’ve had so much fun shooting it and spending all this time together. I don’t want it to end, I enjoy people watching it and telling me what they think about it.

Review: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' - 'The Wednesday Incident': Chit or get off the pot

15 February 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of tonight's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" coming up just as soon as I cook my oatmeal with a road flare... That was pretty swell, wasn't it? Where "Brooklyn" episodes can at times feel too diffuse by trying to squeeze three stories into the same episode, "The Wednesday Incident" for the most part decided to stick with two. It spent a lot of time on Jake and Gina investigating the eponymous incident and why it was making Captain Holt so cranky — and had a very minor third story of sorts in Terry trying to keep the squad from angering Holt further. And it gave us just enough of Boyle vs. Garry Marshall's genial old man bank robber to appreciate the joke (and the fun of Marshall acting) without eating up too much time elsewhere. While I certainly don't mind giving every member of the ensemble something to do, I »

‘Jane the Virgin': The Real Sin Rostro Reveals Master Plan

9 February 2015 4:05 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read on unless you’ve seen the Feb. 2 episode of “Jane the Virgin,” titled “Chapter Twelve.”

Sin Rostro’s identity has finally been revealed. And no, it’s not who we thought. In fact, the prime candidate for “Jane the Virgin’s” mastermind villain, Rafael’s father, Emilio Solano, was killed by the real Sin Rostro — his wife, Rose!

To recap: Jane’s (Gina Rodriguez) detective ex-fiancé, Michael (Brett Dier), and his police partner-turned-hookup buddy, Nadine (Azie Tesfai), have been suspicious of Jane’s baby daddy, Rafael, and Emilio (Carlo Rota). Rafael finally caught wind of the evidence and by episode 12, with the help of his step-mom, Rose (Bridget Regan), he, too, was convinced that his father was the bad guy. But then Rose doused her hubby, Emilio, in fresh cement, burying him alive. In other words, in the best we-didn’t-see-that-coming turn of events, Rose »

Review: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' - 'Windbreaker City': Shoot the hostage?

8 February 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of tonight's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" coming up just as soon as I buy a multi-surface cleaner to impress you... "Windbreaker City" was a sequel of sorts to last year's "Tactical Village," offering a chance for the detectives to live out various action movie fantasies while Captain Holt and Gina remained office-bound. It's still fun to watch Peralta and Boyle and the others play at being John McClane, but there were definitely diminishing returns for this one, just like there were when terrorists threatened Holly McClane's life a second time at Christmas. For starters, while Holt and Gina always make an interesting pair, it's hard for any scenario with them to live up to Andre Braugher saying "Kwazy Cupcakes. Though I did enjoy how the captain manipulated Gina into doing more work even as he was apologizing for being a bad leader. Also, even though the hostage overthrow idea »

Review: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' - 'The Defense Rests'

25 January 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of tonight's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" coming up just as soon as I guess how tall you are in eggrolls... Because the "Brooklyn" cast is so good and so deep, for the most part I find myself preferring episodes just focusing on the ensemble rather than ones built around guest stars. Sometimes, you get someone like Craig Robinson who can spar so wonderfully with both Andy Samberg and Stephanie Beatriz, but more often than not I would rather the prominent guest star had been left behind so we could get more time with Boyle or Santiago or even Scully and Hitchcock. All three of this week's stories featured notable guests — most of them having appeared on the show before — but only the A-story seemed actually built around them. Eva Longoria fit in just fine during her brief stint on the show, and Chris Parnell is always fun — I particularly »
