Best Buds Will Arnett and Sean Hayes Dish on Working Together on The Millers

20 October 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Call it kismet. Call it the meeting of two great comedic forces. Call it a show not resting on its first-season laurels (as creator Greg Garcia does: "We want to keep that momentum going"). Will & Grace Emmy winner Sean Hayes joins off-screen buddy Will Arnett (Nathan) as a series regular on Season 2 of The Millers, and the results are unsurprisingly amusing. He plays Kip Finkle, newly divorced roommate to Nathan's mom, Carol (Margo Martindale), and foil to her TV reporter son. "Kip considers Nathan and his career kind of dumb," Garcia says, which leads to plenty of funny friction. Hayes and Arnett called us up for a slightly loopy chat before the Oct. 20 premiere...

Networks Make Some Quirky Choices on Emmy Ballot

18 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Some Emmy  idiosyncrasies were already known — like HBO’s power-move to list “True Detective” as a drama instead of a miniseries, thus sending Showtime’s “Shameless” scurrying to comedy. But the release of the official ballot has added a few more chess moves to the game.

Surprises

Leading Edge: “Hannibal’s” Mads Mikkelsen and “Bates Motel’s” Freddie Highmore are feeling confident enough to crack the lead actor category.

‘Sound’s’ Special: Perhaps feeling the TV movie category is too crowded, “The Sound of Music Live!” goes the way of last year’s “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel” into the Special Class grouping.

Sing for an Egot: Musicians like Prince (“New Girl”) and k.d. lang (“Portlandia”) attempt to get the elusive “E” portion of the Emmy/Grammy/Oscar/Tony superfecta via the guest actor/actress route.

Single-Player System: “The Good Wife” and “Game of Thrones” gods (well, producers) have spoken »

Emmy Contenders Preview – Minor Roles Make for Major Impact

11 June 2014 10:04 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

These thesps make the most of limited screen time:

Beau Bridges

The Millers

The oft-nominated, three-time Emmy winner says he jumped at the chance to join the cast of CBS’ new hit comedy “The Millers” before even reading a script, “because of showrunner Greg Garcia. We’d previously worked together on ‘My Name Is Earl,’ and he’s one of the funniest, most innovative guys in the business today, who writes very relatable material.” Bridges also loved the family theme — “all the ups and downs, which is a universal experience” — and his character, Tom Miller, “who’s far more complex, and smarter, than you realize at first. And he’s also a bit of a roue — another surprise.”

Jane Fonda

The Newsroom

Jane Fonda calls Leona Lansing, the media baroness she plays in “The Newsroom,” “marinated in Ted Turner and Rupert Murdoch.” Although Lansing harbors a conservative streak that tends to protect her corporate interests, »

Emmys: Will Arnett Of ‘The Millers’ On Being Front And Center

9 June 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Christy Grosz is an Awardsline contributor. After building a career on comedic characters he calls “eccentric,” Will Arnett is back in primetime with CBS’ The Millers, playing TV journalist Nathan Miller, a recent divorcee who finds himself living with his mother. Arnett is more of a leading man than he has been in the past on such shows as Arrested Development and Up All Night, and he’s doing it in front of a live audience on the multi-camera sitcom directed by TV stalwart James Burrows (Taxi, Frasier). He’s also enjoying a thriving film career, voicing Batman in The Lego Movie and appearing in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles this year. Awardsline: Showrunner Greg Garcia asked you to be a part of The Millers when he heard that the future of NBC’s Up All Night was not looking good. What about the role of Nathan appealed to you?

'Raising Hope' Showrunner Bids Farewell to Fox Comedy (Guest Column)

4 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Raising Hope will end its four-season run on Friday with an hourlong episode that takes the comedy back to its roots. The series was created by Greg Garcia (My Name Is Earl), who exited the 20th Century Fox TV comedy ahead of season four after inking an overall deal with rival studio CBS Television Studios. Longtime Garcia collaborator Mike Mariano was tapped showrunner of the comedy starring Martha Plimpton, Garret Dillahunt and Lucas Neff last March. A year, a move to Fridays and 22 episodes later, Mariano was the one charged with creating a season finale that, as it

'Raising Hope,' 'How I Met Your Mother' and the obligation of a 'Legendary!' finale

4 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Our TV week is bookended by sitcom goodbyes. It began with the series finale of How I Met Your Mother; it concludes with the capper to Raising Hope, tapping out tonight with back-to-back episodes, including one cheekily entitled “How I Met Your Mullet.” Created by Greg Garcia, who also gave us My Name Is Earl, the four-season-running Raising Hope was a sweet-and-salty sitcom about the daffy-dumb Chance clan — Virginia, the responsible materfamilias (Martha Plimpton); Burt, the air-headed dad (Garret Dillahunt); Jimmy, the teen-son-turned-teen-father (Lucas Neff); and Maw-Maw, the cracked and coarse grandma (Cloris Leachman) — collectively raising the titular babe, and was always a big-hearted, »

Fox Cancels Raising Hope After Four Seasons

13 March 2014 3:58 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

After four years and plenty of struggle, Fox has decided that enough is enough: Raising Hope has been cancelled, leaving the rest of us to assume that Hope Chance is going to be just fine. What was once merely its Season 4 finale will now be Raising Hope’s series finale. I would say that Raising Hope is too young to die, but it had a pretty good run. It’s not like Fox has had great luck with comedies, even though Raising Hope was the first in a long time to be mildly successful when it first premiered. Hats off to Greg Garcia for creating the show and congratulations to the entire cast and crew for making it so enjoyable these last four years.

According to Deadline, Fox will be airing the hour-long farewell on Friday, April 4. Back-to-back episodes will air from 9-10 Pm. Thankfully, the writers had a feeling »

Fox Has Canceled Raising Hope - Will You Miss It?

10 March 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

After four seasons, Fox has canceled Raising Hope. The show, starring Lucas Neff, Martha Plimpton, and Garret Dillahunt, will end with an hourlong episode to air on April 4 at 9 p.m. Though the show will live on in syndication, fans will no doubt be disappointed that no new episodes will be produced. The decision comes days after Fox greenlit a handful of shows for new seasons, including The Mindy Project. "On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia, and Raising Hope's amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons," producer Mike Mariano said in a statement. "We planned our season-four finale with this possibility in mind and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we've chosen to say good-bye to the Chances and to Natesville." »

Fox cancels 'Raising Hope,' sets series finale for April

10 March 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Given its consistently low ratings, it's somewhat astounding that "Raising Hope" managed to get four often terrific seasons on Fox.  It's still sad to report that "Raising Hope" will have its series finale on Friday, April 4 with an hour-long send-off. "On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia and 'Raising Hope's' amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons," blurbs executive producer Mike Mariano, who took over as showrunner for Garcia this season. "We planned our Season Four finale with this possibility in mind, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we’ve chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville. Thanks again, and we’ll see you in syndication." Often aired in erratic patterns with lengthy hiatuses, doubled-up episodes and early finales, "Raising Hope" will still hit 88 episodes by its finale.
