When working on pilots, Burrows likes to bring in an audience to watch a bare-bones run-through after a few days of rehearsal. No amount of focus-group testing of the finished product can tell him more than the first impression of an impartial crowd.
“For most of my hits, those run-throughs have been through the roof,” Burrows says. “That’s how I gauge the show. I see if they like the characters and the actors they don’t know. That’s how you know what you have.”
Burrows’ track record speaks for itself — from his start as a director in 1974 on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” to “Cheers,” “Friends” and “The Big Bang Theory,
After joking that the evening was being referred to as “Ryan Murphy’s Bar Mitzvah,” CAA Managing Partner Kevin Huvane gave the first of many testimonials to Murphy’s devotion to amfAR and the work the organization does for the gay community. When Murphy took to the stage to accept the Inspiration Award, after joking that he was “honored to be amfAR’s big gay of the year,

Ausiello: Not just anything but something quite intriguing. “Somebody comes along during the season from Owen’s past,” the doc’s portrayer, Kevin McKidd, revealed to us at Saturday’s #Tgit-themed Hollywood soiree. And, though he wouldn’t say whether the “somebody” would be played by Martin Henderson, who’s slated to debut around midseason, McKidd did admit that the character in question “ignites a lot of things

Who doesn’t love a good soap? And there are plenty of them on the air now like the uber-popular Downton Abbey, ABC’s revitalized Revenge and even shows like Homeland have serialized elements that hook us.
And then there’s Nashville, a soap set in the exciting and already over the top world of country music. There are the successful country divas like stoic veteran Rayna James (Connie Britton) and bratty superstar Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere), the up-and-comers like songwriter Gunnar (Sam Palladio), singer Scarlett (Clare Bowen) and guitarist Avery (Jonathan Jackson, whose soap pedigree goes back to General Hospital) and late last season the series added Will Lexington (Chris Carmack), a closeted country heartthrob.
Will doesn’t believe a gay man can also be a country music superstar, and he might just be right on that score. Despite

The new Fox sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine could’ve been your stereotypical workplace comedy relying on predictable romances with a cheeky lead taking the best lines and putting everyone else in the shadows.
Thankfully, the series, created by Dan Goor and Michael Schurr (who also created NBC’s Parks And Recreation), is off to a good start by creating an ensemble work comedy led by Saturday Night Live vet Andy Samberg as Detective Jake Peralta. The rest of the stellar cast includes Stephanie Beatriz (the tough-as-nails Diaz), Terry Crews (muscley squad leader with a big heart, Terry), Melissa Fumero (competitive Santiago), Chelsea Peretti (the sardonic Gina), Joe Lo Truglio (heart on his sleeve Boyle) and Andre Braugher as Captain Raymond Holt. Holt casually revealed in the pilot episode that he

ABC has, therefore, pulled the show from its schedule as a mid-season replacement. An episode will air tonight (Wednesday, May 12) in its regular 10:00 p.m. timeslot and then the show will disappear until June 2, when the remaining four episodes of Happy Town will be burned off on Wednesday nights during the summer.
ABC seems to be searching for that elusive heir to Lost with sci-fi and mystery shows such as FlashForward, V and now Happy Town.
