This confirmed what Universal Pictures said all along that "...the scene was shot a bunch of different ways, and we have the best possible version."
The original scene featured Aniston going topless in front of TV news cameras.
"...'George' and 'Linda' are an overextended, stressed out Manhattan couple. After George is downsized out of his job, they find themselves with only one option: to move in with George’s awful brother in Atlanta.
"On the way there, they stumble upon 'Elysium', an idyllic community populated by colorful characters who embrace a different way of looking at things. »

Tonight was the Christmas episode! Merry merry, happy happy... death threats. Holt (Andre Braugher) has been the target of some death threats, and he chooses Jake (Andy Samberg) as his security detail because he figured Jake would leave him alone, breaking the rules, and letting him go on normally in peace. Not so much.
Jake says he's sticking to him, and offers to take Holt to his mom's house to work in peace. Holt agrees to that because he "wants to see where... this... all started." But Jake does a big old switch, and Holt finds himself handcuffed to Jake in a safe house. They pass the time eating sandwiches and playing Wii tennis until »
It’s Thanksgiving time for the dysfunctional good guys at Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and EW has an exclusive clip from Tuesday night’s Turkey Day episode.
In the clip, Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) leaves the refrigerator open, causing all of Terry’s (Terry Crews) lunch that his wife made him to go bad. With a lot of muscle mass to fill, Terry searches for some alternative methods to finding food as Amy’s (Melissa Fumero) plan for a perfect Thanksgiving meal at the precinct doesn’t go quite as planned.
Check out the clip below:

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 »

Okay, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of my favorite new shows this season. It is well-written and filled with laughs, but what makes it so great is the awesome, ensemble cast. While it may be hard to pick a favorite (is it Andy Samberg or Terry crews?), the real shining star on the show is someone [&hellip

How did American Horror Story get its big upcoming guest-star? Ryan Murphy explains how it happened to EW, ” first I said, ‘I want to use you in the show.’ But she was very resistant because from the beginning of her career people who are in the Wiccan community had given her a hard time thinking she was a witch and she got a lot of scary fan letters. She didn’t like the darkness of that, and I explained to her the part and she’s like, ‘Aw f—, let’s just do it. Ok, I love it.’”
The CW is thinking of rebooting Tales from the Darkside, the iconic horror anthology series from the 80s. The project will involve Sleepy Hollow producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman along with Locke & Key writer Joe Hill. The reboot will try to follow the original format with half-hour standalone stories.

"I think they should probably both be in therapy." Isn't that how all great love stories should begin? No, just us? Ok then, moving right along! Though Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a cop comedy, there's definitely time for romance and this precinct has their very own will-they-or-won't-they pairing in Charles (Joe Lo Truglio) and Rosa (Stephanie Beatriz)! In an exclusive video, the two stars dish on the chances of a full-blown romance blossoming between their completely different characters on Fox's breakout sitcom. Plus, which iconic TV couple does Lo Truglio compare Charles and Rosa to?! "That is the biggest question since Sam and Diane," Lo Truglio says when asked if Charles »

Last week Fox picked up Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a full season, rewarding faithful fans of the cop comedy -- although watching the sublimely silly series, from Parks and Recreation's Daniel J. Goor & Mike Schur, is its own reward. Blisteringly funny, utterly irreverent and unlike anything else on television, Brooklyn Nine-Nine also boasts one of the most exciting new ensemble casts of the year.
"I'm so used to being on TV shows or in movies where I do one scene and leave," Joe Lo Truglio, who plays Detective Charles Boyle, tells ETonline from the La-based set. "Here, I'm getting to create a character and bring him over a long story arc. That's exciting on a personal level. On a creative level, you see the writers getting ideas for great combinations of characters. Now they »
Fox is going ahead and giving the Andy Samberg starring Brooklyn Nine-Nine a full season order. The first series is currently airing in the Us to pretty much Universal acclaim and with the writers and show runners of Parks and Recreation at the helm, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is certainly one to watch.
The show centres around the relationship between an immature NYPD detective (Samberg) and his captain (Andre Braugher; Homicide: Life on the Street), and also features Terry Crews (Everybody Hates Chris), Stephanie Beatriz (Short Term 12), Melissa Fumero (Gossip Girl), Joe Lo Truglio (Superbad) and Chelsea Peretti (China, Il).
The commission of a full season order comes just a day after the straight-to-series order of Travis Beacham's Hieroglyph, as well as a second season for Sleepy Hollow. »

Several critics have called Brooklyn Nine-Nine the best new sitcom of the season. Will viewers agree and bring big ratings? Or, will it be one of those "critical darlings" that ends up getting cancelled after one season? Time will tell.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine follows a wise-guy cop who's always had his way after a by-the-book captain starts leading the precinct. The sitcom's cast includes Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Melissa Fumero, Terry Crews, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, and Joe Lo Truglio.
The higher a show's ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better its chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Season 1, Episode 2, “The Tagger”
Directed by Craig Zisk
Written by Norm Hiscock
Airs Tuesdays at 8:30pm Est on Fox
This week’s episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine flows even better than last week’s pilot, and even suggests a format for the show. The new comedy grows more promising as the crime this week provides even more entertainment than last week’s. Right from the beginning of the pilot, it’s clear that the driving force of the show is going to be the disagreements between Detective Jake Peralta and Captain Ray Holt, paired with the competitiveness between Jake and Amy. “The Tagger” focuses on the aftermath of the pilot as Jake is forced to spend a lot more time with the Captain.
Rosa is a lot less hostile towards Charles this week and it’s still unclear what her intentions actually are. As she fluctuates between interested and abrupt, »

They don't make funny movies any more, right? Wrong. If you're looking for a laugh, then here are some you may have missed...
For this list, blame The Hangover Part III. It was whilst walking out of that film that I got into a chat with someone, who was bemoaning the lack of genuinely funny movie comedies. Certainly, big budget Hollywood comedies have no end of problems right now - with the occasional exception - but I couldn't help thinking of the many neglected gems that had gone through my DVD player over the past decade or so.
As such, I started to put this list together. It's inevitably subjective, as one person's comedy is another person's snore fest. But I've tried to dig out a mix of comedies from the past three decades that have either flown under the radar completely, or »
Perhaps one of the most buzzed about new shows of the Fall schedule, but for all the wrong reasons, is Fox’s Dads. Created by Family Guy vets Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, and executive-produced by Seth MacFarlane himself, Dads stars Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi as a pair of successful video games developers whose lives are interrupted when their fathers (Martin Mull and Peter Riegert) decide to move in with them. Critics who got early access to the Pilot have been scathing, and unsurprisingly for a Seth MacFarlane product it’s been labeled highly offensive (which Fox have sadly tried to use to their advantage). That’s been the headline, and unfortunately it has served to obscure the other key criticism present in most of those reviews: Dads just isn’t funny. The Pilot is a mess, and it’s much easier to take offence when you’re not »

The irreverent 22-part series about a rag-tag group of detectives will air on E4 in January following its premiere in the Us on Tuesday night.
Channel 4 struck a deal with Us studio NBC Universal for the UK premiere broadcasting rights to Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which was created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur, the pair behind the NBC comedy Parks and Recreation.
Samberg, a rising comedy star in Hollywood and best known for his role on Saturday Night Live, plays a wise-cracking detective who has the best – if most surprising – arrest record among his colleagues.
He stars alongside a cast familiar to audiences of American film and television, including Andre Braugher, of Us »

Andre Braugher's last TV show, Last Resort, was a ratings disappointment and was cancelled by ABC. Will he have any better luck with Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the new Fox sitcom? A big hit or quickly cancelled? Is it worth watching?
On Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) is an oustanding detective so, as a result, he's always been given a lot of leeway. That all changes when the precinct gets a new, by-the-book captain (Braugher). The show also features the talents of Melissa Fumero, Terry Crews, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, and Joe Lo Truglio.
Does this sound like a good show? Well, before you answer, here's what a few critics have to say:
Boston Globe: "Braugher anchors Samberg’s performance, and indeed he anchors the whole show. He slides from his expert deadpan to poignancy and back again almost invisibly — it’s a »
In Fox’s new Tuesday comedy lineup, Andy Samberg returns to network TV in Brooklyn Nine-Nine, created by Parks and Recreation producers Dan Goor and Michael “Mose” Schur. Will the new fall season start off strong for Fox, or will SNL’s former star be headed to cancellation?
Brooklyn Nine-Nine stars Andy Samberg as Det. Jake Peralta, a skilled but (extremely) immature member of the force. Joining Samberg in this docu-style comedy is Melissa Fumero as Det. Amy Santiago, Jake’s (adult) partner; Terry Crews as Sgt. Terry Jeffords, the squad leader; Chelsea Peretti as Gina Linetti, the precinct administrator; Joe Lo Truglio as Det. Charles Boyle, the quirky one; and Andre Braugher as Capt. Ray Holt, the new ...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the best new comedy on television for two simple reasons:
Sitcoms are difficult to judge after one episode.,. or sometimes even one season. The best (Parks and Recreation, Community, New Girl) need time to dig into their characters, to learn who plays best with whom, to mine humor from established traits, relationships and flaws.
But Brooklyn Nine-Nine managed to come out of the gate without shooting blanks due to a pair of established stars in ideal roles.
Samberg earned himself a loyal following for playing characters on Saturday Night Live that are similar to Detective Jake Peralta, although this officer is a bit more grounded than the guy who gifted his girlfriend with his junk in a box.
Jake is goofy, sweet, funny… and yet actually effective at his job. That last part is key.
