Last year, thanks in part to The League moving from FX to Fxx, the comedy's ratings took a big dive. Thankfully for fans, it was renewed for a sixth season anyway. Will the ratings rise or fall lower? Will The League be renewed for season seven or will this be the end? Stay tuned.
The League follows a group of close but diverse friends who will do just about anything to win in their fantasy football league. Castmembers include Mark Duplass, Nick Kroll, Stephen Rannazzisi, Paul Scheer, Jon Lajoie, and Katie Aselton.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
Final season averages: 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 430,000 total »
2014 saw Patrick Brice officially plant his feet with Craigslist’s ad from hell horror pic Creep (originally titled Peachfuzz) being picked up (by RADiUS) prior to its SXSW premiere and a month after this, he began shooting The Overnight. A 360° switch in genres, set in Los Angeles, this is being proposed as a night to remember between couples, with a rom com quartet of folk in Adam Scott, Taylor Schilling, Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godreche (who we fondly remember from breakout roles in Patrice Leconte’s Ridicule and Cédric Klapisch’s L’Auberge Espagnole). Oddly enough and comparatively, the year ahead might be an even taller order to fill for Brice, with volumes II and III in the Creep series possibly going into production, but for the time being, and according to this article (above photo cred of Schwartzman and Brice in musical harmony) this will aim at both Sundance »

Directed by: Ben Falcone
Running Time: 1 hr 37 mins
Due Out: November 11, 2014
Own “Tammy” on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, and Digital HD on November 11th
Plot (courtesy of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment): After losing her job, husband and car in one day, Tammy Banks (McCarthy) wants out of her small town existence. With no money or transportation, her only way out is with her hard-partying grandmother, Pearl (Sarandon). Their misadventures and brushes with the law lead them on a funny and heartfelt road trip to remember.
I believe this is the closest we will see Melissa McCarthy achieve her The Jerk. What I mean is, you can feel how personal this is for McCarthy. I don’t mean the particular journey of an oddball woman taking her grandmother on a road trip, what I’m talking about it the humor, »

Melissa McCarthy stands as the most polarizing comedic force currently circulating Hollywood, and no film better represents her “love me or hate me” personality more than hubby Ben Falcone’s directorial debut, Tammy. Written by the husband and wife team, McCarthy’s signature brand of unkempt comedy “comes in hot” for the films entirety, barraging audiences with the titular character’s uneducated, vulgar, and sometimes moronic “charms.” Where The Heat let McCarthy flex her badass-cop muscles, and where Bridesmaids allowed McCarthy’s vulgarity to be counterbalanced by numerous clashing personalities, Tammy takes the “lovable dimwit” route a bit too emphatically, presenting audiences with a comedic helping three sizes too large.
McCarthy pairs up with the legendary Susan Sarandon for a self-reflective road trip filled with trials and tribulations, as Sarandon plays Tammy’s grandmother (Pearl). After finding herself in a rut, Pearl allows Tammy to escape using her car, but »

If the first trailer for the new HBO comedy “Togetherness” is any reflection of the show at large, be prepared for some hilariously awkward moments. We wouldn’t expect anything less from filmmaking brothers Mark and Jay Duplass.
The upcoming show, which follows a dysfunctional Los Angeles couple with kids, marks the Duplass brothers’ first stab at a TV series. Things take a turn for the worse in “Togetherness” when Michelle’s sister (played by Amanda Peet) and Brett’s friend (Steve Zissis) move into their already cramped house.
The eight-episode-long first season premieres on Jan. 11.

Brothers Jay and Mark Duplass have been apart more than not lately, with Jay killing it on Amazon’s Transparent and Mark doing the same on Fxx’s The League. But come January, they’ll be re-teaming for a brand-new show on HBO called Togetherness. The half-hour series centers around four people in their late 30s who all […]

HBO has released the first Togetherness trailer for the upcoming comedy series from filmmaking brothers Mark and Jay Duplass (Cyrus, Jeff Who Lives at Home). The show follows two couples living under the same roof, going through relationship difficulties as each individual pursues his or her own dream. This trailer is a strong introduction to the show, as it looks to be a relationship comedy with a bit of a cynical edge. Mark Duplass also stars in the show alongside Melanie Lynskey, Steve Zissis, and Amanda Peet. Watch the first Togetherness trailer after the jump. The eight-episode first season premieres January 11th on HBO after Girls. Via HBO. Here’s a synopsis for Togetherness: The new series Togetherness begins its eight-episode season Sunday, Jan. 11 (9:30-10:00 p.m.). From brothers Jay and Mark Duplass, in their TV debut, the show follows two couples living under one roof on the fringes of Los Angeles. »

Look, I'll be honest. There is no footage I will be able to show you today — or maybe ever — that will be the equal of "Too Many Cooks." We just have to accept that the viral video bar has been permanently raised to a perhaps impassable level. But we have to allow for the ability to watch other things, even if they can't give us anything as spiritually fulfilling as "Coat" and "Pie." So let's look at the latest teaser trailers for "Orphan Black," "Girls" and HBO's new comedy "Togetherness." The "Orphan Black" clip leans much more towards "teaser" than "trailer." It's only 20 seconds long, and has no footage of the new season, but at least the music's good and appropriate: A day after HBO announced that "Girls" would be leading off an all-comedy Sunday lineup in January, we got the longest trailer yet for the new season. Tons of footage here, »

The brainchild of quirky indie brothers, Jay and Mark Duplass, Togetherness marks the sibling’s first foray into the small screen format. Their typical output has consisted mainly of full-length features, honing in on the details of their characters and evoking believable responses to the crazy situations they’re often thrown into. The proud home of stellar home entertainment, HBO, will now be launching the brothers’ career into an entirely new direction. To get a quick glimpse at what’s in store, HBO has dropped the first teaser trailer. Clocking in at a mere 40 seconds, it’s enough to get this writer excited for the 2015 TV landscape.
After receiving the greenlight for a pilot back in 2012, it’s taken time for the series to come to fruition but now the first eight episodes of the half-hour dramedy have wrapped. Enlisting a cast of fellow indie gems, Melanie Lynskey, Amanda Peet, »

It was all the way back in 2013 when HBO first ordered up the pilot for the Jay and Mark Duplass' "Togetherness." Two years later, the series will finally hit the small screen, but it looks like the wait has been worth it. The first teaser trailer is here and we're ready to add this to our regular viewing schedule. Bringing together a great cast which includes Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey, and Amanda Peet, the half-hour dramedy follows two sisters—and their respective partners—who find themselves living under the same roof. Yeah, it sounds like a sitcom-y premise, but even this 40-second look promises richness beyond the surface. And hell, 30-minutes with this ensemble each week sounds just fine to us, and we're eager to see how this series has shaped up. Given the plum spot after "Girls," "Togethernress" debuts on January 11 at 9:30 Pm. Watch below. »

HBO has announced return dates for two comedies series along with a debut date for a new offering. The fourth season of Girls, the second season of Looking, and the first season of Togetherness will all premiere on Sunday, January 11th. While Girls and Looking are both classified as “comedies”, they’re a far cry from the traditional definition of the word. The San Francisco-centric Looking premiered last year to so-so ratings, but HBO stuck with the series and renewed it nevertheless. While I wasn’t crazy about the show overall, it’s very different from the rest of HBO’s lineup and adds some nice diversity to the pay cable channel’s original series offerings. Togetherness, meanwhile, comes from the filmmaking duo of Mark and Jay Duplass and stars Mark, Melanie Lynskey, Steve Zissis, and Amanda Peet as two couples that live under one roof. Girls will kick the night off at 9pm, »

If that new trailer for Girls season four had you so excited (and of course it did), you're going to be even more psyched to find out the premiere date! HBO has just announced that Lena Dunham's series will return on Jan. 11 at 9 p.m. It will be followed by new series Togetherness starring Mark Duplass and Melanie Lynskey as a married couple, and season two of Looking will round out the night at 10 p.m. Plan your viewing parties now! »

For the second time in three years, HBO's Sunday lineup will be drama-free in January, with the return of "Girls" and "Looking" and the debut of Jay and Mark Duplass' "Togetherness." All three will premiere on Sunday, January 11, with "Girls" beginning its fourth season at 9 p.m., "Togetherness" — starring Mark Duplass, Melanie Lynskey, Steve Zissis and Amanda Peet as two couples living under one roof — starting its first at 9:30 and "Looking" returning for its second at 10. It is, I believe, the first time HBO has scheduled three scripted comedies on the same night(*), though it's not the first time even in recent years that HBO has had to go without a drama series on its signature night. (*) Your mileage will vary on whether you classify either "Girls" or "Looking" that way, and of course HBO had "Silicon Valley" and "Veep" leading into "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, »

Tammy is a film directed by newbie Ben Falcone (who is married to Melissa McCarthy), that tells the crazy story of a woman who loses her job, which spurs her on to go on a road trip with her whiskey loving grandmother (Susan Sarandon). Tammy’s grandmother is the only option she has to get out of town, away from her husband and home for a while which could be the therapy she really needs.
Melissa McCarthy has certainly done well for herself with the huge success of Bridesmaids and The Heat – she can pretty much do anything she wants to in terms of roles. To put it bluntly, Tammy is a bad example of wrong choices. For an actress with comedic range, Tammy numbs away that talent of hers. Funnily enough, »

It’s the second Blumhouse project to land at Relativity, which bought “Oculus” at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and saw it become the highest grossing movie out of Toronto since 2010, with $40.6 million worldwide.
