Upfronts 2017: The Best, Worst and Wackiest Moments in Photos

18 May 2017 2:39 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Though the broadcast networks have (thankfully) gotten Hamilton parodies out of their collective system, live music was still the name of the game at this year’s Upfronts — and most of them actually made sense!

PhotosFall TV Preview: Your Guide to What’s New

Jennifer Hudson, for example, was an obvious choice to open NBC’s presentation in song, given that she recently signed on to coach The Voice. And of course The CW would ask the main trio from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend to serenade advertisers with a number from the Emmy Award-winning series.

But did we really need Seth MacFarlane crooning about Fox’s metrics? »

Seth MacFarlane's 'The Orville' Trailer Goes Full 'Galaxy Quest'

18 May 2017 1:43 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

"By Grabthar's hammer, you shall be avenged!"

The late Alan Rickman's famous Galaxy Quest war cry was likely on the minds of the fans who laid their eyes upon the trailer for Fox's new star-spanning sitcom The Orville. The upcoming series, created by and starring Family Guy architect Seth MacFarlane, focuses on a crew of space travelers aboard a ship called — you guessed it — The U.S.S. Orville, with Ed Mercer (MacFarlane) serving as an unlikely and untalented starship captain. 

This week, Fox released the first official trailer for The Orville, a show that clearly wears »

Trailer Hits For Seth MacFarlane & Jon Favreau’s New Sci-Fi Comedy Series

16 May 2017 1:45 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Fox has released the first trailer for the new Seth MacFarlane series, The Orville. The Star Trek parody is a comedy-drama series created by and starring MacFarlane. The show is set 400 years in the future and follows the adventures of the U.S.S. Orville and its crew members.

The first live-action show to come from MacFarlane, it will also be his first starring role in a live-action series. The show was picked up by Fox in May of 2016 and has a 13-episode order.

MacFarlane plays the recently divorced, Captain Ed Mercer, who leads the exploratory ship, the U.S.S. Orville. Adrienne Palicki will co-star as MacFarlane’s ex-wife, and newly appointed First Mate (much to the dismay of MacFarlane’s character), Kelly Grayson. Scott Grimes will play Mercer’s best friend, Gordon Malloy. The alien creature, Bortus, played by Peter Macon, is part of an all-male species, and »

Ratings: Shocking ‘DWTS’ Elimination Returns ABC to First Place in Viewers – But It Was Close

16 May 2017 8:47 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Editors note: This post contains a spoiler from last night’s “DWTS.” Stop reading now if you don’t want to know who went home on the ABC dancing competition. ABC reclaimed its primetime total viewer crown last night with a shocking elimination on “Dancing With the Stars” as 10 million fans said goodbye to Simone Biles. NBC followed closely behind in the Nielsen metric, and was still able to win its sixth Monday in a row among the key 18-49 demographic, thanks mostly to “The Voice.” A week ago, NBC had topped the night outright.

Seth MacFarlane leads The Orville to space in trailer for new Fox TV series

15 May 2017 5:16 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

You need only to take a look at the variety of projects which Seth MacFarlane has produced over the years to deduce that he's a big Star Trek fan. Frequent references to the series, as well as appearances by many Star Trek actors, are sprinkled throughout Family Guy, American Dad and several others, so it was probably only a matter of time before MacFarlane produced his own Star...

Fox's New Show Trailers: A Critic's Ranking

15 May 2017 3:53 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Fox found an interesting way to pique my interest in its 2017-18 programming options during its upfront presentation to advertisers on Monday afternoon: Offer new show clips after an exhausting and seemingly endless cavalcade of inert sales pitches and cringe-worthy comic bits.   This is just simple math, that if you make me watch five minutes of Jimmy Johnson, Jim Harbaugh and Joe Buck trying to do comedy, watching two-minute clips of Seth MacFarlane, Adam Scott and Craig Robinson doing comedy will feel relatively pleasurable (or at least professionally adequate) in contrast.    The spiel »

10 Things We Learned From Fox’s Upfront

15 May 2017 3:43 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox’s programming presentation went into overtime on sports Monday afternoon. The first half of the upfront at the Beacon Theater was devoted to the network’s sports operation, which seemed to overshadow the emphasis on primetime entertainment programming.

Joe Marchese, Fox’s newly appointed president of advertising revenue, gave a wonky pitch about the vitality of TV advertising versus the unknown quantities found on Facebook and YouTube. Marchese did have some news for the crowd, however, vowing that there would no longer be conventional ad breaks in FX programming made available via streaming or other on-demand platforms.

Marchese, who is known for pushing radical changes in TV advertising, beamed as he told the crowd how gratified he was to be “bringing this type of viewer-friendly ad innovation to Fox Networks Group.” He also pointed to his own new-ness in the role of Fox ad sales chief. “This is one heck of a third day at work »

At today’s upfront presentation in New York, Fox revealed several trailers for its upcoming programming (sorry, no new “X-Files” footage — yet), including both midseason and fall series. As previously reported, sci-fi and comics are heavily represented in the mix, though there are a few other surprises.

Okay, this one’s a mess. Zigging and zagging between characters and plotlines, the very attractive doctors get plenty of screen time (always nice to see Matt Czuchry get work after “Gilmore Girls” and “The Good Wife”), but real talk — who is the titular Resident? Based on this, there are at least three candidates for that singular title, and while the smart money is on Czuchry, »

‘Ghosted’ Trailer: Adam Scott and Craig Robinson Spoof ‘X-Files’ Investigations — Watch

15 May 2017 3:24 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Do you know what Fox needs besides another “X-Files” season? A comedy that spoofs that “X-Files” formula.

Enter Fox’s new comedy “Ghosted,” which is not about avoiding a person you dated until they finally get the hint but only after creating low self-esteem, doubt, frustration and anger in said rejectee. Instead, “Ghosted” stars Craig Robinson and Adam Scott as your Mulder and Scully. Only this time, Robinson plays the cynical skeptic and former missing persons detective Leroy Wright, who thinks extraterrestrials are a bunch of hooey and has an even lower opinion those that believe in aliens. Wouldn’t you know it he’s paired with the genius “true believer” in the paranormal Max Jennifer (Scott) who believes that his wife was abducted by aliens.
