Rashida Jones Says ‘Angie Tribeca’ Deserves ‘Something Bigger Than an Emmy’ in Hilarious Fyc Video

15 June 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Emmy voting is currently underway, which means networks’ campaigns are starting to make their last big push for nominations. While another campaign going on in the world is serious — and somewhat terrifying — these campaigns have been nothing but absolutely hysterical, exemplified in TBS’s most recent “Angie Tribeca” ‘for you consideration’ video — one that should be nominated itself for best Fyc video.

Read More: How Rashida Jones Changed Everything to Make ‘Angie Tribeca’ Perfect (Consider This)

“If you watch only one Fyc Emmy video this season, make sure it’s this one,” TBS said. And they have a case.

Rashida Jones highlights the utter importance and authenticity of the show, calling it “dark” and “raw” and saying, “It’s a tough world and if you’re not careful, you could easily lose your humanity.” We see sacrifice and commitment as an undercover Angie poses as a nude model with her wire hidden in a place that should make them throw it out after. We see the stress get to Angie as she barely restrains from hitting a ferret. We see such incredible skill as Angie picks out the smell of cabbage in her captain’s office. How could “Angie Tribeca” not be the most important show there’s ever been and be nominated “a million times”? We don’t know.

Check out the campaign video below. “Angie Tribeca” airs Mondays at 9pm. Created by Nancy and Steve Carell, the show “follows a squad of committed Lapd detectives who investigate the most serious cases.”

Rashida Jones Takes on ‘Baywatch’ in Exclusive ‘Angie Tribeca’ Video

13 June 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

This week’s episode of “Angie Tribeca” has the cast in deep water.

According to TBS’s official synopsis, “After a string of suspicious drownings, Geils (Hayes MacArthur) goes undercover with the L.A. Lifeguards; however, Tribeca becomes worried. Why? She thinks he might be in too deep. He’s never been that strong of a swimmer, and the currents are deceivingly strong.”

Tonight’s episode will reportedly showcase Geils’ arc and “hilarious character development” that will continue throughout the season.

The sophomore season of the bizarre cop-procedural parody is as strong as ever according to IndieWire TV Critic Ben Travers, who advises, “What’s key in watching ‘Angie Tribeca’ is knowing that not all the gags have to make you bust a gut. They merely have to contribute to the overall sense of humor, lending a hand in support of each viewer’s subjective take on individual jokes.”

In an exclusive clip from tonight’s episode, the Swat team hits the beach to nail down the source of the drownings, going so far as to hide beneath the sand in truly absurd “Angie Tribeca” fashion.

“Beach Blanket Sting-o” airs tonight at 9pm on TBS. Check out the exclusive sneak peek below.

Angie Tribeca: Season Two Ratings

8 June 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

In January, TBS launched their new cop comedy, Angie Tribeca, with a 25-hour marathon of all of the first season episodes. They then reran one episode each week in a regular timeslot. For season two, they're trying a traditional schedule. Will this approach bring better ratings? Cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.

A parody of cop dramas, Angie Tribeca revolves around a lone-wolf detective named Angie (Rashida Jones) and a squad of committed Lapd detectives. They investigate the most serious cases -- from the murder of a ventriloquist to a rash of baker suicides. The rest of the cast includes Hayes MacArthur, Jere Burns, Deon Cole, Andrée Vermeulen, and Jagger the dog.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated »

TV Ratings: ‘Unreal,’ ‘Angie Tribeca’ Viewership Down in Season Two Premieres

7 June 2016 3:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Lifetime’s “Unreal” and TBS’ “Angie Tribeca” took ratings hits in their sophomore season bows on Monday.

Strong industry buzz and near universal praise from critics did not boost the live turnout for “Unreal,” set behind the scenes of a reality TV dating show. “Unreal” returned at 10 p.m. to an average of 497,000 viewers in Nielsen’s live-same-day ratings, down from about 815,000 in its premiere last year. Another 254,000 viewers watched the 11 p.m. repeat of the episode.

“Unreal’s” dip also followed a lighter showing from its 9 p.m. lead-in, “Devious Maids.” The drama series averaged 1.08 million viewers for its fourth season opener, compared to 1.46 million last year.

TBS’ “Angie Tribeca” returned at 9 p.m. for its second season with back-to-back episodes. The comedy spoof of procedural dramas starring Rashida Jones delivered 660,000 viewers for the first seg and 574,000 for the second. The series premiered in January with a 25-hour marathon that opened to 1.17 million viewers. »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy

2 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At this point, the question isn’t whether Julia Louis-Dreyfus will score her fifth consecutive nomination for her role as President Selina Meyer on the HBO comedy “Veep,” but whether her winning streak will end. The actress has watched her character go from the titular vice president to leader of the free world, collecting a string of statues along the way. While Candice Bergen managed to score five wins for “Murphy Brown,” even she didn’t do it in a row.

But there are some new faces poised to take the prize this year, from Golden Globe winner Rachel Bloom (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) to Amy Schumer (“Inside Amy Schumer”), who is on a hot streak herself. In addition, many actresses who have never scored a nom are coming off great second seasons, including Ellie Kemper (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), Tracee Ellis Ross (“Black-ish”) and Constance Wu (“Fresh Off the Boat. »

Andy Samberg has his own comedy vehicle with “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping”

31 May 2016 1:11 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Depending on what you’ve seen him in, you might have a number of different takes on Andy Samberg. You could know him from his run on Saturday Night Live, his television show Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a handful of supporting roles in films, or his highest profile turn in Celeste and Jesse Forever. There’s also his musical work with The Lonely Island, which combines with his comedic movie work this week to mark the release of Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, his attempt at a real comedy hit. It appears to be something a little on the unique side, so there’s a chance that Samberg is about to break through in a big way. The film is a look at fictional superstar Conner4Real (Samberg), who was once a member of the pop/rap group The Style Boyz. When his solo career goes up in flames, Conner4Real is game to »

The Dab Has Hit Peak Pop Culture Overload: The Dance Move Made Its Way to the Scripps Spelling Bee

27 May 2016 11:21 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Cam Newton, look what you've done to society. Okay, fine, so the football player didn't invent the dance himself, but he certainly helped bring it into popularity. When millions of viewers see him on TV every week performing what has become his signature dance move, it makes them want to try it out too. And boy have they ever tried it out. Everyone from celebrities to (previously) esteemed and respected politicians have dabbed. Rashida Jones dabbed on Jimmy FallonBetty White gave it a try. Even Hillary Clinton and Ellen DeGeneres felt the need to dab. It spared no one, except our country's youngest and most innocent citizens. Or so we thought.  Last night was »

Watch Steven Spielberg’s Harvard University 2016 Commencement Speech

27 May 2016 6:16 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

He just stopped by Cannes to premiere his latest feature, The Bfg (our review), and he’ll begin production next month on the sci-fi adaptation Ready Player One, but Steven Spielberg found some time in between to impart some wisdom onto the graduating class of perhaps our country’s most prestigious place of education: Harvard. This week, he took the stage to give a commencement speech in which he touched on how opening up his worldview changed the kinds of movies he’s made, how we’re a nation of immigrants, not regretting 1941 (we agree!), and much more.

“Now in a two-hour movie, you get a handful of character-defining moments, but in real life, you face them every day,” he says. “Life is one strong, long string of character-defining moments. And I was lucky that at 18 I knew what I exactly wanted to do. But I didn’t know who I was. »

Rashida Jones, Samantha Bee Talk Being at ‘Center of Comedy’ at TBS Panel

18 May 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The new faces of the TBS comedy slate — Samantha Bee, Jason Jones and Rashida Jones — joined Conan O’Brien at an Fyc event on Tuesday at New York City’s New Museum.

Moderated by CNN’s Jake Tapper, the panel highlighted clips from each of the four shows, and hit on topics like gender equality in comedy and handling serious geopolitical issues from a comedic angle. Following the panel, the four stayed to celebrate and socialize at an after-party on the museum’s seventh floor Sky Room.

Since her show “Full Frontal” started airing in February, Bee has already established herself as a leading voice for political satire. On the red carpet before the panel, she told Variety that election coverage will continue full-force, even if it entails unusual living accommodations. “I’m looking forward to going to the conventions,” Bee said. “I’m trying to convince TBS to brand a tour bus for us. »
