TV Land cancels “Hot in Cleveland” after 6 seasons The current season will be the last for TV Land’s 1st-ever scripted comedy, which produced more than 100 episodes. The cancelation comes a few months after creator Suzanne Martin told The Hollywood Reporter that she would "love to do at least eight seasons." Katherine Heigl: It “sucks” that Shonda Rhimes still views me negatively “The last one with Shonda… it sucks,” she tells "Extra" of the “Grey’s Anatomy” creator’s recent comments on her “no as*holes policy," referring to Heigl. I am sorry that she feels that way and I wish her nothing but greatness, and I have nothing negative to say about Shonda. I'm a big fan of her work. I watch 'Scandal' every week, and so I'm sorry she's left with such a crappy impression of me. I wish I could do something to change that. »

Is there enough room on the bubble for Pop?
When Pop, a cable network most people probably refer to as Tvgn, launches January 14, it will do so with programs that celebrate the continuing ability of such, well, institutions, as New Kids On the Block and “Everybody Loves Raymond” to cut a swath through popular culture. And it will debut with some new programs in tow: a comedy series featuring Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara and the eyebrow-raising title “Schitt’s Creek,’ as well as a reality program that examines the ability of former soap stars from daytime and primetime to produce a new sudser.
But the new network’s schedule is only the tip of an ongoing battle by major media companies to win viewers by highlighting celebrity and fun. Pop is actually a new effort from CBS Corp. and Lionsgate to put forth their own candidate in the »

With wins at Slamdance and Austin's Fantastic Fest, "Kung Fu Elliot," a stranger-than-fiction documentary about one man's quest to become Canada's first action hero, has begun to amass the kind of cult following and rave reviews its title subject only dreamed of.
Initially starting out as a quirky underdog tale about Elliot "White Lightning" Scott, Matthew Bauckman and Jaret Belliveau's film takes a hard left turn as the filmmakers, the people around him and the audience start to come to the realization that Scott isn't quite the delusional-but-lovable dreamer he first seemed to be.
With "Kung Fu Elliot" premiering in Toronto on Friday before expanding across Canada, the official Hot Docs selection is half-character study and half-character assassination, and really, it has to be seen to be believed. Here's five more reasons why you should check out the movie when it comes to theatres near you.

Barbara Walters is coming out of retirement for "The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014” Walters said she was done with the franchise after the 2013 edition. But ABC announced this morning that "Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014” will return Sunday, Dec. 14 at 9 pm. Why hasn’t any new fall show been canceled yet? It’s unusual to have zero cancelations one month into the season. But this is an unusual season, and EW reports that one of the factors in the lack of cancelations is the lack of confidence in the midseason replacement shows. Plus: It’s hard to figure out what a hit is nowadays. Pop network orders its 1st scripted series: “Schitt’s Creek” with Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara The current TV Guide Network will transform into Pop, with a comedy about a rich family that loses it all in a Ponzi scheme and ends up living in a motel. »

“I used to be able to name every nut that there was. And it used to drive my mother crazy, because she used to say, “Harlan Pepper, if you don’t stop naming nuts,” and the joke was that we lived in Pine Nut, and I think that’s what put it in my mind at that point. So she would hear me in the other room, and she’d just start yelling. I’d say, “Peanut. Hazelnut. Cashew nut. Macadamia nut.” That was the one that would send her into going crazy. She’d say, “Would you stop naming nuts!” And Hubert used to be able to make the sound, he couldn’t talk, but he’d go “rrrawr rrawr” and that sounded like Macadamia nut. Pine nut, which is a nut, but it’s also the name of a town. Pistachio nut. Red pistachio nut. Natural, all natural white pistachio nut… »

Waiting For Guffman screens Tuesday, September 30th at the Mx Theater downtown (618 Washington Ave, St Louis, Mo 63101) as part of The Mx Independent Film Festival. Admission is Free!
Never has small town theater been so hysterical. Christopher Guest’s mockumentary Waiting For Guffman is one of the funniest movies ever made. Its smart humor and devoted cast all give the 1996 film what it needs to work. In the small town of Blaine Missouri (“The stool capital of the world”), temperamental, effeminate Corky St. Clair (Christopher Guest) is determined to get his play about the town’s history off the ground. Using all the (very) limited talent he has in the community, Corky puts on his production. Blaine’s dentist Dr. Allen Pearl (Eugene Levy), travel agents Rob and Sheila Albertson (Fred Willard and Catherine O’Hara »

Ghostbusters II might not have the esteemed reputation of the 1984 original, but Seb argues that it's well worth another look...
As has been impossible to avoid in geek and movie buff circles, this year represents the 30th anniversary of the release of Ghostbusters. This is obviously, of course, something to be celebrated – but amid all the fuss, it’s quite easy to overlook the fact that as a result, it’s also the 25th anniversary of its sequel.
The fact that Ghostbusters II isn’t being celebrated in anything like as extensive or affectionate a fashion as its predecessor is reflective of the poor reputation it has among fans of the first film, and indeed the wider film-going public at large. Sequels to a genre classic not being as good – and hence as beloved – as the original is of course not exactly uncommon; but whereas the likes of Back To The Future Part II »
Idris Elba and Dominic West, the actors who portrayed McNulty and Stringer Bell on The Wire, have joined Pixar's Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory. West revealed the news in an interview with ShortList saying:
"I saw Idris recently. We’re both in the sequel to Finding Nemo, so we were recording that. I’m in pretty regular contact with a lot of guys from The Wire — a lot of them are godparents to my kids, so I love them dearly."
I never thought I'd see these two hardcore characters from The Wire in a Pixar film, but here they are. They join an already impressive cast that includes Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Willem Dafoe, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, and Ty Burrell.
The story takes place a year after the first film, and is set along the California coastline.

Set in part along the California coastline, the story also welcomes a host of new characters, including a few who will prove to be a very important part of Dory’s life.
Finding Dory hits theaters on June 17th, »

We already know that Idris Elba will be lending his distinctive vocals to Shere Khan in Jon Favreau’s Jungle Book. But according to his former Wire co-star Dominic West, he’ll also be working on Pixar’s sequel to Finding Nemo, Finding Dory.Talking to Shortlist, West revealed that he’s in regular contact with several of the actors from the much-praised HBO series and that he and Elba are both performing voice duties on Dory. We hope they've met around a microphone once or twice in the course of their work, and exchanged some chat in flawless Baltimore accents.Finding Dory, of course, will act as the follow-up to the company’s 2003 smash hit and explores Ellen DeGeneres’ character and her family. Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton are set as her parents, Charlie and Jenny, while Ty Burrell is comic whale sidekick Bailey. Oh! Oh! We speak Whale! »
Might Pixar’s upcoming sequel Finding Dory take its characters to the mean streets of Baltimore? Almost absolutely not, but good luck getting that image out of your head now that it’s been revealed that The Wire co-stars Idris Elba and Dominic West have both signed on to lend their voices to new characters in the Finding Nemo follow-up.
West, who is starring in Showtime’s ambitious fall series The Affair, dropped the news during an interview with Shortlist, simply teasing:
“We’re both in the sequel to ‘Finding Nemo,’ so we were recording that.”
No word yet on which characters the actors will be playing, but Finding Dory is set to take place at least in part along the coast of California, where scatter-brained regal tang Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) reunites with many important people from her past one year after the events of the first film. Along for the ride are Marlin, »
