The Top 10 TV Shows of 2016, So Far

8 July 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

10. “The Night Manager

It took Oscar-winning filmmaker Susanne Bier to finally bring John Le Carre’s espionage thriller to life, and boy, did she ever. The miniseries was striking in every way, from the global locales and picturesque hotels to the way characters were displayed upon such backdrops. More than just eye candy, Tom Hiddleston as soldier-turned-spy Jonathan Pine was a man with a mission, quietly stoic in the face of his nemesis Richard Roper, played with dangerous glee by Hugh Laurie. Olivia Colman brought the heart, Elizabeth Debicki the heartache and Tom Hollander a sense of impotent rage. The storytelling was large in scale yet intimate in how it played out, and it’s no wonder that viewers are hoping for more, even though Le Carre never wrote a sequel.

Her upcoming role in Ghostbusters is no different, and in her cover story for Elle's first Women in Comedy issue, McCarthy jokes that her dedication to her parts can sometimes get on her director's nerves.

TV’s New Normal: How Shorter Runs, Fewer Episodes Are Revitalizing Primetime

17 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC had good reason to go all in on “The Good Place.”

The new comedy hails from “Parks and Recreation” co-creator Mike Schur, who has a long history at the network and a deal at studio division Universal Television. NBC gave it a straight-to-series order, skipping the traditional pilot process. The network also committed to a 13-episode season, with no plans for a back-nine order — the sort of limited run typically reserved for expensive, producer-driven dramas such as Fox’s “Empire,” in which the creative demands outweigh the economic appetite for more TV at all times. The deal helped the show nab stars Kristen Bell and Ted Danson, two of pilot season’s top gets.

Cody Pickens for Variety

In this world we’re in now, there’s more of a sense that shows should have a number of episodes that befits that idea, instead of just, ‘Let’s do »

Nyle Dimarco Puts on The Mask - and Gets Cut Down to Size by Len Goodman - on DWTS

25 April 2016 7:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Nyle Dimarco had other dancers green with envy on Monday's Dancing with the Stars. The model put on a green prosthetic to channel Jim Carrey in The Mask, and while the performance pleased the crowd, some of the judges took issue with comments he made during the episode. At one point he called himself the "frontrunner" in the video package and after the performance joked that since you couldn't tell who he was with the prosthetic, maybe it was a "pro dancer" actually under the mask. He earned 25 out of 30, and Len Goodman remarked on those comments. "You're a good dancer, »
