Megan Mullally, whose boozy, busty socialite friend of Trump provided a foil for the left-leaning title characters, reveals how the project came together. How was it stepping back into Karen Walker's shoes - or should I say push-up bra - after all these years?First of all, I wasn't wearing a bra. And second of all, the whole thing felt like we'd just gone on hiatus for a week and we'd just come back. »

24 September 2016 10:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Phoebe and Monica got back together to test their “Friends” knowledge on “Celebrity Name Game” which originally aired Sept. 20.

In the special bonus round clip, Courteney Cox gives clues to words and phrases associated with “Friends” and Lisa Kudrow has to guess the answer.

“I was married to him.” Chandler Bing

“Where we had coffee.” Central Perk

“You sang a song about it.” Smelly Cat

The only clue that caused the unflappable Kudrow to even mildly stumble was, “He was across the way. We would look at him through the binoculars.”

The answer: “Ugly Naked Guy.”

Overall the two ace the quiz and end the match with an adorable high five.

8 June 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Megan Mullally had been acting professionally since the early ’80s but it wasn’t until “Will & Grace” premiered in 1998 that she found her breakout role on camera. Groundbreaking at the time, the series really took off in season two, landing 11 Emmy noms and wins for Mullally, co-star Sean Hayes and best comedy series.

What stands out about that first nomination?

NBC's iconic sitcom Friends is considered by many to be one of the best comedy shows ever, with a legacy that has stood the test of time, even 12 years after the show went off the air.

Eva Longoria’s ‘Telenovela’ and Family Comedy ‘Crowded’ Cancelled at NBC

13 May 2016 11:57 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC has cancelled Eva Longoria’s “Telenovela” after one season, plus freshman comedy “Crowded,” Variety has learned.

Telenovela” gave a behind-the-scenes look at a fictional telenovela and its star who does not speak Spanish, played by Longoria.

Telenovela” was the vehicle set to bring Longoria back to TV, following her stardom on ABC’s “Desperate Housewives.” The Latino-themed sitcom was one of the hottest projects last development season, entering a bidding war between a couple of networks, before landing at NBC with a straight-to-series 13-episode order — the only way Longoria would commit to the project.

NBC trimmed the episode order from 13 to 11, and did the same for “Superstore,” which stars America Ferrera. However, “Superstore” landed an early Season 2 renewal, after performing well — and better than “Telenovela.” Even with its star-power in Eva Longoria, “Telenovela” was also the lower rated of the two. During its winter run on Mondays, it averaged »
