Sdcc: The Big Bang Theory to go “ghostbusting”, creators silent on season 8 cliffhangers

10 July 2015 4:16 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Television’s biggest comedy, The Big Bang Theory, returned to Comic-Con today with another hilarious panel, which had surprise guest Mayim Bialik (Amy) and Kunal Nayyar (Raj) in attendance, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Set to start its ninth season in the fall, the show ended Season 8 with a few big cliffhangers, including Amy and Sheldon’s (Jim Parsons) break-up and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) heading off to Las Vegas to get married. Of course, many of the fans at the panel has their questions ready for creator Chuck Lorre and series showrunner Steven Molaro. And while the panel were noticeable mum on many things, they did say that many of the question marks left by the final episode of last season would be settled in episode 1 of the new season.

In addition, the show is about to go ghostbusting, with Chuck Lorre revealing that there’s been »

Here's the Full List of Critics' Choice TV Awards Winners

1 June 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It should come as no surprise that critically-acclaimed series such as "The Americans" and "Silicon Valley" took home top prizes at the fifth annual Critics' Choice TV Awards on Sunday night (it's right there in the name of the event, after all). But there was plenty of love for popular shows, too, proving that quality programming is becoming more widely available and amenable to audiences during this so-called golden age of television.

"The Americans" and "Silicon Valley" each claimed high honors in the best drama and comedy series categories, respectively, and their home networks were the biggest winners of the night: HBO snagged seven statuettes, while FX collected four. "Silicon Valley" was among the shows that won multiple awards, with T.J. Miller taking home the trophy for best supporting actor in a comedy.

Freshman series "Better Call Saul" and "Transparent" also walked away with two trophies apiece, while new sensation »

Critics’ Choice Awards Winners: Full List

31 May 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The 5th annual Critics’ Choice TV Awards took place Sunday at the Beverly Hilton hotel and aired live on A&E. “So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley emceed the proceedings — and also found time to accept the prize for best reality host midway through the show. Despite playfully jabbing rival host Tom Bergeron during her intro by joking she’d purposefully gotten him relegated to one of the back tables in the ballroom, she was spotted warmly embracing the “Dancing with the Stars” mainstay during the ad break.

The first prize of the night went to “Better Call Saul’s” Jonathan Banks for best supporting actor in a drama, and the thesp also had the dubious honor of earning the ceremony’s first (but far from the last) bleep during his acceptance speech. The “Breaking Bad” spinoff later won a second award for Bob Odenkirk’s lead »

Exclusive: The Master Cleanse Poster Releases More than Toxins

12 May 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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 GallnerXyz Films is currently shopping the film around Cannes.

‘Big Bang Theory’ Finale Rings Out Eighth Season (Spoilers)

7 May 2015 6:31 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

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 »

Nominees for the Critics Choice Television Awards include “24: Live Another Day” and many more

7 May 2015 4:40 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

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. »

Critics’ Choice TV Award Nominations Spotlight Justified, Silicon Valley, and More

6 May 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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, »
