New TV Shows Could Break Into Crowded SAG Awards

20 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One thing you’ve got to hand to the SAG TV voters, they’re loyal to a fault. When it comes to the categories for individual acting, once they find someone they like, they stick with them.

Each year a host of veterans, not to mention a steady stream of series newcomers, is forced into the cold by familiar, entrenched names in comedy and drama alike.

So amidst the universal mourning for the “Breaking Bad” and “30 Rock” finales, there must have been a certain amount of secret glee among thesps. After all, the spot Bryan Cranston occupied in male actor, drama, for five consecutive years is now open for business, as are Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey’s in the comedy division, where they competed, and usually triumphed, a total of 15 times.

Opening up Cranston’s slot is particularly tantalizing, since the drama field is crowded indeed. Steve Buscemi of »

X Factor finalist to reality TV contestant: Who did it the fastest?

20 November 2014 8:36 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Jake Quickenden has been confirmed to be entering the jungle in ITV's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!.

Just four weeks ago, Jake was singing as a finalist in The X Factor before being the fifth act to be eliminated from the competition.

This got us thinking. This must be the quick(enden)est time that an X Factor finalist has found themselves on a different reality TV show so far - but which other acts traded series after attempting to secure a contract with Syco? Here they all are in order of time taken to do so.

1. Jake Quickenden (4 weeks)

Series: 2014

Finished: 12th

After reaching the Judges' Houses in 2012, Quickenden made it to the final 16 this year. He tried desperately to prove that he wasn't just a pretty face with a ripped physique, but it hasn't taken him long to get his kit off for his pre-I'm a Celebrity photoshoot. »

TV Review: ‘Hello Ladies: The Movie’

19 November 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sparingly appealing as a series, “Hello Ladies” fares somewhat better as an 80-minute movie, designed (much like finales to “The Office” and “Extras”) to wrap up the show. Those aforementioned comedies were the creations of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the gangly, less-well-known sidekick who has gone solo here. And if nothing else, Merchant has established himself as the kinder, gentler half of that tandem, with this sendoff feeling like an old-fashioned romantic comedy. Granted, “Ladies” was hardly a smash in the U.S., but those who said “Hello” initially will likely welcome the closure the finale offers.

More than anything, this concluding chapter feels like a departure from the edgy, uncomfortable material for which the duo was partly known. The story (directed by Merchant, who again shares writing credit with Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky) essentially zeroes in on the inherent neediness of Merchant’s character, Stuart — his desire to create the impression, »

7 New Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb Character Posters Use the Title Six Different Ways

18 November 2014 9:34 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox has released seven new Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb character posters.  After saving the day (or night) at the Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian, security guard Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) is off to the British Museum in London where he hopes to uncover more secrets about the mysterious tablet that brings the museum figures to life.  These posters all find a way to incorporate "Night" into the tagline except the one featuring Attila the Hun.  I like to think about the tagline copywriters burning the midnight oil, rolling up their shirt sleeves, chain smoking, crumpling up sheets of papers, and getting into shouting matches because they couldn't figure out how to make a play on words with "hun" and "night".  Then they gave up and cried themselves to sleep. Hit the jump to check out the Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb character posters. »

18 November 2014 6:54 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Channel 4 has confirmed that the Derek finale will air in December.

Ricky Gervais's comedy drama will come to an end with a one-off special episode over the Christmas period.

The episode will feature Derek (Gervais) now dating Tracey, while still working at the retirement home. However, Hannah (Kerry Godliman) is now at a new job closer to home with partner Tom (Brett Goldstein).

Channel 4's Head of Comedy Phil Clarke said: "Christmas seems a wonderfully fitting time for us to bid farewell to Derek, a show that truly celebrates generosity and goodwill."

Gervais previously indicated that he was considering either a special or a third series of the comedy.

He said: "I did toy with a third series, particularly after the Emmy nod, but I decided to stick to my usual formula of two series and a special. It's a bittersweet experience as always.
