Neil Patrick Harris, in fishnets and heels, has officially torn down the Broadway box office.
Less than three months after opening, the Harris-led, Tony-winning revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch has recouped its initial investment on Broadway. Harris won a Tony last month for playing the titular German transgender rocker in the John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask musical, breaking the fourth wall and directly interacting with the audience at the Belasco Theatre seven times a week (unlike most shows, which are scheduled for eight performances). The production, directed by Michael Mayer, took home a total of four Tony Awards, »

Andrew Rannells talks to Playbill about stepping into the shoes of Hedwig after Neil Patrick Harris finishes his run, and why audiences respond so well to the show. “I think she wants what we all want. She wants to be loved and to find love. I think it’s kind of as simple as that. She compromises a lot in the name of finding love… The journey that she goes on, at least in broad strokes, is pretty universal. Anybody who is searching for something better for themselves can relate to what she goes through. She wanted something better. She wanted to get out of East Berlin. She wanted something more, and the cost of that was very high for her.” Rannells also notes what we all suspected but hadn’t seen confirmed in an interview, »

Before they became staples on CBS sitcoms “How I Met Your Mother” and “The Big Bang Theory” respectively, Neil Patrick Harris paid a brief visit to Mayim Bialik on her show, “Blossom.” In this flashback clip, Patrick is seen in 1991 at the height of his “Doogie Howser” fame, hobnobbing with Bialik's Blossom in a fantasy episode entitled “Rockumentary.” In the episode, Blossom lies in bed sick and watches rock-themed movies, falling into a hallucination in which she's the most famous rock star in the world.

The Leftovers — HBO's new, mildy terrifying sci-fi series based on the Tom Perotta novel — begins with the sudden disappearance of 2 percent of the world’s population in an is-it-or-isn’t-it biblical-style Rapture. Babies vanish right out their car seats; celebrities like Anthony Bourdain and Gary Busey ghost out with the rest. So at the series’ New York premiere, hosted by Tao Downtown, Vulture asked show creator Damon Lindelof, star Justin Theroux, and some other partygoers what they'd miss most if they suddenly got Raptured themselves. Andrew Rannells was very concerned about the end of Nashville. Justin Theroux"My cell phone … It depends on where I go. If I go to somewhere great, I probably won’t miss anything! But no, I would not want to be taken in a rapture.” Damon Lindelof“I have to take the sentimental route and say that I’d be panicked about [leaving my] family. Assuming that »

The first major awards ceremony honoring this past year’s accomplishments on the small screen took place last night as Cedric the Entertainer hosted the 2014 Critics’ Choice Television Awards from the Beverly Hilton. I’ve always preferred the Critics’ Choice Awards to the Emmys, just because my views tend to line up more with the members of the Broadcast Television Journalists Association. This year was no different, as a number of highly deserving actors, actresses and shows were honored.
Allison Janney was the clear winner last night, taking home two Critics’ Choice TV Awards. The actress won Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series for her devastating work on Showtime’s Masters of Sex and also tied with Orange is the New Black actress Kate Mulgrew for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her performance as the title character on CBS’s Mom.
FX’s Fargo also had a great night, »

Some of the biggest shows on television went head to head. Here's who came out on top.
All the hottest names in TV turned out for the 2014 Critics Choice Television Awards on June 19, held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Cedric the Entertainer hosted the gala event presented by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association, and the night was really a battle between two cable channels.
Premiere pay-cable network HBO had a whopping 18 nominations, but in a show of strength for a smaller cable channel, FX topped that with 19. Meanwhile, the big contenders for individual shows were the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory, the CBS drama The Good Wife, FX's crime dramedy Fargo, Showtime's drama series Masters Of Sex and HBO's The Normal Heart, all getting five noms each.
Also, Netflix struck a blow against the traditional television hierarchy with their original series Orange Is The New Black competing in several key categories.
So, with all »
At the Critics’ Choice Television Awards on Thursday, Allison Janney nabbed two prizes — but she had to share one.
The veteran actress won for Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series for her work on Showtime’s Masters of Sex, and she split Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series with Kate Mulgrew (Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black) for her work in CBS’ Mom.
