TV: The Maya Rudolph Show to Debut in May

16 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After a long-delayed debut, The Maya Rudolph Show finally has a premiere date: Monday, May 19 at 10 Pm.  Except here's the catch: it's yet unclear whether Rudolph's variety show will be a one-time special or an ongoing series. NBC will presumably base that decision on that first episode's ratings.  Here's what we do know: There will be a ton of guest stars. Andy Samberg, Kristen Bell, Fred Armisen, Chris Parnell, Craig Robinson, and Sean Hayes are scheduled to appear, as is musical guest Janelle Monae and bandleader Raphael Saadiq.  Rudolph was last seen guest-starring on Portlandia and will appear in P.T. Anderson's Inherent Vice in December. [h/t Av Club]

Yesterday, Ed told you that This Week with George Stephanopoulos hired anti-gay pundit Laura Ingraham. Salon‘s Alex Pareene says that’s just the latest step in a rightward lurch for the Sunday morning talk show, one that involves hiring conservative pundits who make for terrible television. But, really, if you want to watch a Sunday morning talk show, you should be watching Up with Steve Kornacki. Under Kornacki, Up is a lot more political, and Kornacki has turned out to be incredibly skilled at asking the tough questions that cut to the truth of the matter.

It’s finally happening. EW says that NBC has scheduled The Maya Rudolph Show for May 19. The variety special will feature appearances by Sean Hayes, Kristen Bell, Andy Samberg, Fred Armisen, Craig Robinson and Chris Parnell with a performance by Jannell Monae. The variety show is a genre that has struggled on TV (oh, »

15 April 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All hail NBC for what should be their best decision in months: giving Maya Rudolph her own variety show. "The Maya Rudolph Show," a one-hour throwback to classic variety series of yore, stars the "SNL" vet in its first episode May 19. The show could turn into a regular series, and by the looks of the talent appearing on the debut, that seems inevitable. Andy Samberg, Kristen Bell, Fred Armisen, Chris Parnell, Craig Robinson, Sean Hayes, musical guest Janelle Monae, and bandleader Raphael Saadiq will be part of the proceedings. Yes, please. Thank you.  To celebrate this fantastic news, let's remember that Rudolph is -- without question -- the most Gif-able comedienne on the planet. Her every face and movement is worthy of its own flipbook. Here are 15 times she was worthy of a kickass Gif.    »

Exclusive ‘Archer Vice’ Interview: Jessica Walter Walks The Talk

18 March 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

In this wild and wacky season of Archer Vice, Isis matriarch, Malory (Jessica Walter) has endured her role as the plot pusher, but she’s also taken more of a supportive role this season. That doesn’t mean she hasn’t had her set of conflicts to deal with. She is desperately trying to find a way to make money off of the shit-ton of cocaine they have stashed in the Tunt Manor, but it’s dwindling because Pam (Amber Nash) keeps eating it. Now she has been forced her to milk what she can of Cheryl’s (Judy Greer) talents singing country songs as her latest alter ego, Cherlene.

If that’s not enough, Malory has also been dumped by her husband, Ron Cadillac (played by Walter’s real life husband, Ron Leibman), is reminding Lana (Aisha Tyler) of the mistake she has growing in her belly and for »

Archer Earns A Two Season Renewal

7 March 2014 2:22 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While we’re sure that Sterling Archer – gloriously self-centred animated star that he is – would not be in the least bit surprised at the popularity of his show, the news of a two-season renewal for Archer is pretty big. At a time when networks and studios are being increasingly cautious with their commitments, ordering a further 26 episodes of anything is a huge vote of confidence.

The award-winning show premiered in January 2010, and is now enjoying an increase in viewership in its fifth season. The original premise of the show centred on the titular egotistical master spy, and his exploits as an agent of Isis (International Secret Intelligence Service). He is helped and hindered in equal measure by his ex-girlfriend and fellow agent, Lana Kane, and his boss – who is also his mother – Malory Archer. A supporting cast of wonderfully dysfunctional characters help to make each episode hilariously off-the-wall.

SXSW Exclusive: Jeremy Sisto Wants To Be A Better Tennis Partner In Clip From Comedy 'Break Point'

6 March 2014 8:23 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

What does it take to be a good partner? Openness, communication, an active interest in what's important to the person you're with. It's good advice for your love life, but as Jeremy Sisto finds out in "Break Point," those tips work well on the tennis court too.  Director Jay Karas, who has logged time behind the camera on "Workaholics," "Parks & Recreation," "Raising Hope" and "After Lately," makes his feature debut here rounding up a pretty solid ensemble including David Walton, Joshua Rush, J.K. Simmons, Amy Smart, Adam DeVine, Chris Parnell, Vincent Ventresca, Cy Amundson and Jenny Wade. Co-written by and starring Sisto, the story follows a former tennis pro that has burned his bridges, who makes one last swing at the big time, and rounds up his estranged brother to once again join him on the court. And in this exclusive clip, we see both how far they've been apart, »
