The Critics’ Choice Television Awards are only a few days away, and while the winners of the awards might be something people are looking for, I know that what people are really interested in right now is what’s coming next.
Today, the Broadcast Television Journalists Association (that’s me) announced their picks for the Most Exciting New Series, and also revealed the presenters for the show. I can tell you, three of these were my picks, and they are all shows that you want to make sure you catch.
Check all the info on the show, and the series, below.

Today, we’re pleased to bring you an exclusive look at The Master Cleanse poster. The film is “the story of a group of people who attend a spiritual cleansing retreat, only to discover that the cleanse releases more than everyday toxins and traumatic experiences...” The press release describes the picture as a dark comedy, and I think that’s the way to make this premise work. Cleanses are a joke that don’t work and come with serious side effects. May as well make a monster a side effect. Check out the poster below, which was designed by Phantom City Creative’s Justin Erickson (hopefully, companies will continue the trend of hiring artists to do posters). Bobby Miller’s feature directing debut is currently in post-production, and stars Johnny Galecki, Anna Friel, Oliver Platt, Anjelica Houston, and Kyle Gallner. Xyz Films is currently shopping the film around Cannes. For more on the film: letsgetpure. »

“The Big Bang Theory” has consistently bucked trends, including the one that would suggest a comedy in its eighth season might begin to grow tired and stale. Instead, the show has kept clicking on all cylinders, moving the characters forward while continuing to revel in scientific jargon and sly pop-culture savvy. That said, there’s a reason why the writers have kept the various romantic relationships from advancing too rapidly – presumably some of them watched “Friends” – which perhaps explains why the season finale (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched) essentially just kicked more than one can down the road.
The episode opened with Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and his long-suffering girlfriend Amy (Mayim Bialik) grappling with their very different ideas about commitment: She wants to talk about what it means that they’ve been “together,” such as it is, for five years, while he wants to talk about whether »

Yesterday, the nominations for the 5th annual Critics Choice Television Awards were announced. The sister group to the Critics Choice Movie Awards, this is what could be looked at as a bit of an Emmy Awards precursor, if you will. I’m not exactly an expert when it comes to TV and this awards season (it’s mostly film or bust for me in that regard), but I watch a handful of shows and follow along with the race. Not enough to accurately do predictions, mind you, but I did think this nomination announcement was worthy of a mention. As such, today we have the list of Critics Choice nominees, which I’ll be revealing to you shortly. Among the titles that fared best this year with the nominations, we have Justified lead the way with five nominations. Following that, we have The Americans, The Good Wife, and Transparent with four apiece. »

Ah, the Critics' Choice Awards. Or more accurately, "what you wish the Emmy nominations looked like." Like the Emmys, HBO features heavily in the list this year (27 nominations), but unlike the Emmys, so does the very deserving FX (16 nominations). Even the CW gets a look-in here, along with individual and fantastic series like Wolf Hall (PBS) and Rectify (Sundance). The list may still not be perfect, but it's pretty darn close. The 5th Annual Critics' Choice Television Awards, held by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, will be broadcast live on May 31st at 8 p.m. on A&E. Check out the full list of nominees below: Best comedy series Broad City (Comedy Central) Jane the Virgin (The CW) Mom (CBS) Silicon Valley (HBO) Transparent (Amazon) Veep (HBO) You’re the Worst (FX) [caption id="attachment_410423" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Fox[/caption] Best actor in a comedy series Anthony Anderson, Blackish (ABC) Chris Messina, The Mindy Project (Fox) Jeffrey Tambor, »

It’s time to start honoring television again, and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association has released their (our) nominations for the 5th Annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards.
HBO comes out especially strong with a whopping 27 nominations.

Justin Timberlake on the Oscars' Red Carpet Justin Timberlake at the Academy Awards The Social Network actor Justin Timberlake arrives at the 83rd Academy Awards, which took place on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. At the ceremony, Timberlake and Black Swan actress Mila Kunis introduced the nominees – and eventual winners – in the animation categories. Throughout the proceedings, he pretended to be the elusive Banksy, whose Exit Through the Gift Shop was a Best Documentary Feature contender. The joke fell mostly flat, but Timberlake actually elicited some laughs when he imitated three-time Oscar-nominated veteran Kirk Douglas*, who mercilessly stretched the Best Supporting Actress announcement into what seemed like hours. Admittedly, Douglas was funny. (The winner in that particular category turned out to be Melissa Leo for David O. Russell's The Fighter.) As announced by the Justin Timberlake-Mila Kunis duo, the Best Animated Short Film was Shaun Tan »

It's always nice to see friendly exes, don't you think? Actress Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting took a moment to post an adorable black-and-white snapshot with her Big Bang Theory co-star and ex-boyfriend Johnny Galecki in honor of his birthday today, captioning the picture, "Happy happy birthday to my tv fiancé and buddy buds for 8 years @sanctionedjohnnygalecki." The pair shared the small-screen and carred on an onscreen romance for quite some time, but were able to keep their offscreen relationship a secret from the public for years. Cuoco revealed in 2010, while Leonard and Penny were on the outs, that she and Galecki had dated on the down-low for two years. "We dated for almost two years. »

For nearly a decade now Johnny Galecki has played the pushover nerd Leonard Hofstadter on The Big Bang Theory, the most popular show on American television, with an average of some 23 million people watching each new episode in 2014. And if those 23 million people only know Galecki as the bespectacled, soft-hearted dork on the show, then they may be a bit surprised when he shows up in Rings, the second sequel to the 2002 hit horror movie The Ring. We don't really know yet how the story of a video cassette tape whose images tag a viewer with a death clock is going to be updated into the year 2015, when nobody actually watches VHS tapes any more, but we do at least know that Galecki will be playing a suave, "pleasure-seeking professor" who is also a...

This week brought us another update on the Richard Jewell thriller that would reportedly re-team Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill following their work together on The Wolf of Wall Street. Deadline is reporting that Clint Eastwood is now circling the project.
Jewell was a police officer who discovered a backpack with a bomb inside at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and helped to evacuate the area. Though he was originally hailed a hero, misreporting by the press ultimately labeled him a potential suspect. Hill would play Jewell, and DiCaprio would play the Southern lawyer who helped clear his name.
The film is based on an article called “The Ballad of Richard Jewell” that ran in Vanity Fair in 1997, and Billy Ray (Captain Phillips, The Hunger Games) wrote the screenplay for the currently untitled film. It was originally presumed that he might join up again with Paul Greengrass to direct, but Greengrass »
