Last season Fox tried airing live-action sitcoms on Sunday nights with their animated series. Their gamble paid off and Brooklyn Nine-Nine was renewed. How will the ratings go this time around? Will it be renewed for a fourth season or will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine follows a group of unique detectives and officers at the NYPD's 99th Precinct. The sitcom's cast includes Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon MIller.
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 Pst. Refresh to see the latest.Read More… »
A quick review of tonight's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" coming up just as soon as my childhood home has been replaced by a denim pants store... If "The Funeral" had just been Holt and Terry getting drunk and depressed at the bar... Dayeenu. Hell, if it had just been Andre Braugher's elongated delivery of the word "pain" as Holt read the first draft of his speech, and/or Terry dancing the Carlton, this would have been a marvelous episode. Fortunately, there was a lot of funny stuff happening around the spectacle of the show's two most sensible characters drinking too much after a very bad day. It'll be a challenge to ever have the Vulture be quite as horrible a dude-bro as Dennis Duffy was, but the "Brooklyn" writers and Dean Winters are certainly giving it their all, particularly in the sequence where Jake tried and failed to go full douche to bromance him. »

On Sunday's third season premiere of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine," Bill Hader stole the show with a wild one-off guest spot by him as the episode’s eponymous “New Captain” and it could be Hader’s next Emmy-nominated performance. His character, Seth Dozerman, replaces Capt. Ray Holt (Andre Braugher), who was reassigned in the second season finale from the 99th precinct of the New York Police Department to a public relations post under Deputy Chief. Madeline Wuntch, a recurring role that is reprised this week by Kyra Sedgwick. -Break- It is never too early to dish the Emmys with Hollywood insiders in our red-hot forums Despite winning Best Comedy Series and Actor for Andy Samberg at its first Golden Globes, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” has been snubbed by the Emmys save for Supporting Actor bids by Braugher and Stunt Coordination. But Hader might be enough of an academy favorite to overcome the apathy. Be. »

It’s still frustratingly common to see Brooklyn Nine-Nine described as “that Andy Samberg cop comedy,” but in the show’s strikingly confident third season, what’s never been clearer is that the series is a true ensemble piece, dependent not only on Samberg’s endearingly childish Jake Peralta but a whole host of lovable characters to gel as a collective whole. And from Stephanie Beatriz’s delectably dour Rosa to Andre Braugher’s gentle giant Holt, the first two installments of the new season give almost every player in and around the 9-9 some time in the spotlight – though, crucially, the show remains equally devoted to continuing to juggle all of its colorful narrative balls in a meaningful way.
Comedy, particularly when made in a mockumentary format like this, is a hard genre to sustain over multiple seasons, but this show’s »

“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” is shaking things up for Season 3, as Andre Braugher‘s Captain Holt has been reassigned to another precinct across town by his nemesis Deputy Chief Wuntch (Kyra Sedgwick). Enter Bill Hader, series producer and star Andy Samberg‘s old “SNL” castmate, who becomes the Fox leading man’s new TV boss on the premiere. The reunion has been a blast, Samberg told TheWrap during a recent interview. Hader was “super fun to play with,” the comic actor said, explaining, “he’s my friend, also a lunatic.” Also Read: Kyra Sedgwick Introduces Andre Braugher to New Cop Crew on »

“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” is back on Sunday, but Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) won’t be spending a heck of a lot of time with Andy Samberg and the rest of the regular crew. Holt’s nemesis Deputy Chief Wuntch has reassigned the former 99th precinct captain to oversee a bunch of (other) losers, who are currently struggling to name the NYPD’s new pigeon mascot. Still, Holt remains undeterred by Wuntch’s power move — or the barbs they opened the below scene exchanging. “I came out as a gay cop in the 1980s, so it’s gonna take more than reassigning me to break my spirit, »

Today is the television industry's biggest event, with the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Andy Samberg, airing live today, starting at 8 Pm Et/5 Pm Et on Fox. History was made during the telecast, when Viola Davis became the first African-American actress ever to win the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, for her role in ABC's How to Get Away with Murder, while Mad Men star Jon Hamm ended his Emmy losing streak by picking up his first ever statuette. The big winner tonight, though, was HBO's Game of Thrones, which took home four Emmy Awards tonight, bringing its total to 12, counting the Creative Arts Emmy Awards that were held earlier this month (visit Emmys.com for the full list of winners).
After being nominated for Outstanding Drama Series for its first four seasons on the air, Game of Thrones finally won the big award tonight, »
So let's tally up some of the highs and lows of tonight's Emmy awards (here are all your winners): Jon Hamm finally won an Emmy for playing Don Draper. Amy Poehler never won an Emmy for playing Leslie Knope. Viola Davis made history by becoming the first African-American actress to win a drama lead actress Emmy, and gave a scorching, beautiful speech about it. "Game of Thrones" made history by winning the most Emmys in a single year for anyone series, but for its weakest season to date. Andy Samberg bombed in the room as host, though seemed to be doing much better with a certain brand of comedy fan at home. HBO absolutely dominated, walking away with the winners for best comedy ("Veep"), best drama ("Game of Thrones"), best made-for-television movie ("Bessie"), and best limited series ("Olive Kitteridge"). And it'll almost certainly win the variety talk show award »

This year's Emmy nominees in major comedy categories include Anthony Anderson in "Blackish," Don Cheadle in "House of Lies," Andre Braugher in "Brooklyn Nine Nine," Tituss Burgess in "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," Keegan-Michael Key in "Key & Peele," and Niecy Nash in "Getting On." If any three of them win, they will double the amount of black series cast members ever to win comedy Emmys. Three black performers have won Emmys in lead and supporting comedy categories. The last African-American winner was Jackée (Harry) in 1987 for her supporting role as the saucy Sandra on "227." Before that, Robert Guillaume picked up a supporting actor Emmy for "Soap" in 1979 and a lead actor Emmy for its spinoff "Benson" in 1985. Isabel Sanford won for playing Louise "Weezy" Jefferson on "The Jeffersons" in 1981. The guest actor comedy Emmys have a slightly better track record. Before Uzo Aduba picked up her guest actress trophy for "Orange is the New Black" last year, »

The past winners: Tony Hale took home his first Emmy on his first try. After earning his long-delayed nomination in 2013, the former "Arrested Development" star has been nominated every year since then for his role as the devoted bagman Gary on "Veep." A consistent favorite to win, Hale has gone up against "Modern Family" star Ty Burrell in each of the last three years — and lost once. Burrell is on his sixth year-in-a-row with an Emmy nod, and already has two total wins under his belt. But even that impressive track record doesn't compare to Andre Braugher, a nine-time nominee and two-time winner looking to pull in his third Emmy and first for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." Can any of these three popular vets take home another piece of gold for their trophy case? Read More: Tony Hale on 'Veep' Season 5, Gary's Tough Year and His Favorite Insult from The »

Better lock your doors and windows! The Mist is creeping into TV from Dimension Television. This sci-fi horror series will be based on both the Stephen King's classic novella and the feature film from director Frank Darabont. At this time, no cast members have been announced. And it isn't known if Frank Darabont will return to direct one or more episodes.
Coming off the success of the recently renewed Scream TV series on MTV, Dimension Television announced today that they are resurrecting The Mist in a similar fashion. The project, which has Stephen King's blessing, is a continuing series from acclaimed writer Christian Torpe. Christian Torpe created the successful show Rita in Denmark, which is now finishing its fourth season. Christian Torpe has also been developed programming for both Showtime and AMC.
Using the book and movie as influences, The Mist series tells an original story about a »

He is a past two-time winner for "Homicide: Life on the Street" (1998) and "Thief" (2006).

At a bar, Holt gives a passionate speech to his officers where he worries that he's no longer able to lead his department because of everything that's gone wrong lately, even going so far as to say that he doesn't see himself as a man.
