BoJack Horseman Announces Season 3 Premiere Date

26 May 2016 6:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

BoJack Horseman will return to Netflix with its third season on July 22nd 2016 – and that news is straight from the horse’s mouth. Answering a question fans have been asking since the animated comedy series was renewed last year, star Will Arnett used Twitter to release a short clip, informing his followers of the all-important date.

All the drama. All the BoJack. He’s back. pic.twitter.com/2hiHdxpjKt

Will Arnett™ (@arnettwill) May 25, 2016

BoJack Horseman was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, and takes a satirical swipe at celebrity culture, and the machinations of Hollywood. Will Arnett voices the titular character who – in a world where anthropomorphic animals and humans live side-by-side – is the former of star of a popular 1990s sitcom. BoJack seeks to regain cultural relevance by dictating a tell-all biography to ghostwriter Diane Nguyen (Alison Brie), while dealing with a freeloading room-mate (Aaron Paul), a social and professional rival »

Joel McHale on ‘Community’s’ Future: ‘If Somebody Funds It, We Would Love to Make a Movie’

18 May 2016 6:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Community” fans have been holding onto hope that the cult-favorite show could somehow return, even though it seems to have cheated death twice.

After being cancelled by NBC after five seasons, the ensemble comedy was revived by Yahoo Screen for its sixth season. Earlier this year, the streaming service was shut down — effectively shutting down “Community,” too.

When asked Wednesday by reporters if there could be a “Community” movie, star Joel McHale joked, “Yeah! We’re bringing back Yahoo Screen! It’s gonna be great!”

Speaking at CBS’ upfront red carpet where he was present to promote his new comedy series “The Great Indoors,” McHale continued, “I’m sure if somebody funds it, we would love to make a movie. The way Dan [Harmon] has already described it — which I could not agree more with — is it can’t just be a two-hour episode. It has to have a real budget »

ABC Fall Schedule: Scandal Delayed, Kiefer Replaces Nashville, Middle and S.H.I.E.L.D. on the Move

17 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

ABC is the third network, following NBC and Fox, to announce its schedule for the 2016-17 TV season, and among its major moves — though as suspected — Scandal will not return until midseason, while The Middle is relocating to a new neighborhood for Season 8.

ABC’s new entertainment president Channing Dungey conceded in a call with reporters that Scandal star Kerry Washington’s real-life pregnancy forced the network to “make some adjustments” with regard to scheduling the show.

'Scandal' delay leaves ABC's fall schedule without all-Shonda Thursday

17 May 2016 8:59 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Say goodbye to ABC's all-Shonda Thursday lineup — at least until midseason. Kerry Washington's pregnancy has delayed (and shortened) the next season of Scandal, which means the schedule ABC announced today will be the first in a few years featuring a show not produced by Shonda Rhimes airing on that night in the fall. In this case, it's Notorious with Piper Perabo, one of two new ABC legal dramas whose descriptions in the press release includes the word "sexy," just in case we weren't clear on the branding.  On the whole, ABC's schedule has many more changes, and more new shows, than either the NBC schedule or Fox schedule announced earlier in upfront week. Among the shifts: with Castle done for, ABC will have a new post-Dancing with the Stars drama — Conviction with Hayley Atwell (the other "sexy" legal show) — for the first time in years; Agents of Shield »

‘Ride Along 2′ Review

14 May 2016 8:39 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, Ken Jeong, Olivia Munn, Benjamin Bratt, Tika Sumpter, Bruce McGill, Sherri Shepherd, Arturo del Puerto, Carlos Gómez | Written by Phil Hay, Matt Manfredi | Directed by Tim Story

Once again directed by Tim Story, who previously worked with Ice Cube on Barbershop and the first film in this series, Ride Along 2 is yet another Ice Cube starring, stereotypical buddy-comedy and like all good buddy comedies it lives and dies by its cast. Last time the chemistry between Kevin Hart and Ice Cube felt stilted and forced, leaving this reviewer a little cold – will it be any different this time round?

Ride Along 2 picks up the story about a year after our heroes’ last adventure. Not content to work as a beat cop, Ben (Hart), a recent academy graduate, now aspires to be a detective like his soon-to-be brother-in-law. However, James (Cube) still doesn’t »

TV Cancellations: ‘Agent Carter’ Killed, but ‘Good Wife’s’ New Life Offers Hope

13 May 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s tough to love TV, and there’s no tougher time than late spring, when the several waves of broadcast network cancellations herald the arrival of Upfronts. I have a few thoughts on the most recent round of TV cancellations, spinoffs and renewals:

Among the cancellations announced in recent days: “The Grinder,” “Grandfathered,” “Galavant,” “The Family,” “Bordertown,” “Second Chance,” “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” “Nashville,” “Castle” and “Containment.” For me, the toughest losses were “Agent Carter” and “The Grinder.” More on the former in a moment, but I have a few thoughts on the latter. “The Grinder” was something of an odd duck, and I do get that it was a niche show (hence its low ratings and Fox’s desire to axe it). But given that it was a knowledgeable and meta-obsessed show that lovingly mocked TV cliches, that particular niche was designed to appeal to TV nerds like me. »

Last Man Standing Renewed at ABC

13 May 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Last Man Standing has cheated death once again.

After another year of down-to-the-wire license-fee talks with studio 20th Century, ABC has renewed the Tim Allen comedy for a sixth season, TVLine has learned.

Last Man Standing‘s reprieve comes on the heels of ABC’s massive Thursday house-cleaning that claimed seven series, including Castle, Nashville, Agent Carter and The Family. However, Last Man Standing‘s Friday-night companion, rookie sitcom Dr. Ken, was spared.

ABC Cancels 'Castle,' 'Nashville,' 'Agent Carter,' Three More

13 May 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There was a bloodbath over at ABC on Thursday, with six series getting the axe from The Alphabet: "Castle," "Nashville," "Agent Carter," "The Muppets," "Galavant," and "The Family."

"Castle"'s cancellation seems especially shocking in light of recent dramatic events -- behind the scenes, that is. The series infamously booted co-lead Stana Katic last month, telling her she would not be coming back should the show receive a season nine renewal. Fellow original cast member Tamala Jones was also given her walking papers; the moves were seen as a cost-cutting measure, in the hopes that saving some money (and gearing up for a shorter, 13-episode season nine) would ensure renewal.

But apparently new ABC head honcho Channing Dungey is opting for a fresh start in her recently-assumed role, and that means making some big changes at the network. According to Deadline, "Castle" shot an alternate season eight ending that could »

Upfront Upheaval: ABC Cleans House, Fox Wipes Frosh Comedy Slate, CBS Bids Adieu to ‘CSI’ and ‘Supergirl’

12 May 2016 7:20 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A boatload of TV talent just flooded onto the market.

The rash of cancellations on Thursday afternoon from across the broadcast nets makes free agents of highly sought after TV stars like Nathan Fillion (“Castle”) and Connie Britton (“Nashville”), along with John Stamos (“Grandfathered”) and Rob Lowe (“The Grinder”).

ABC on Thursday afternoon conducted its annual pre-upfront housecleaning, making renewal, cancellation and pickup decisions that speak volumes about the network’s priorities. Some of the cancellations were so expected as to be anti-climactic (read: “Galavant”), and some were surprising given the behind-the-camera drama that played out in public (read: “Castle”).

ABC, like CBS, has undergone regime-change in the entertainment suite. The new bosses, ABC’s Channing Dungey and CBS’ Glenn Geller, are looking to put their stamp on the schedule, clearing out the old and infirm to make way for what they hope will be happy, healthy newborns that reflect well on them. »
