The bigger networks are adding their own efforts that, though decidedly updated in one way or another, aim to explore the possibilities still open by way of the general sensibilities and frameworks that worked so well for shows of the past.
The comedy introduces the Shea family, whose patriarch Tony (The Closer‘s J.K. Simmons) suffers a heart attack and realizes he can no longer handle the family handyman business alone. One problem: The logical candidate, his son Jack (Perfect Couples‘ Kyle Bornheimer), is a chronic screw-up with a less-than-stellar career history. Everyone, naturally, is waiting for him to biff big-time in this latest pursuit.
Rounding out the cast are Leah Remini (King of Queens) as Jack’s Aunt Terry, Johnny Pemberton (21 Jump Street) as his cousin Mason,
General Hospital, which earned 19 nominations, joined Restless in the race for Outstanding Drama Series, and Sesame Street received 17 nods, including three for Kevin Clash, the voice of Elmo who faces allegations of sexual misconduct.

Actually, that’s not an entirely fair criticism. Produced by “That ’70s Show” alums, “Tools” isn’t completely broken, from an execution standpoint, and the cast — including J.K. Simmons as the gruff dad and Leah Remini as the aunt who sneakily lures the protagonist back home — is superior to the material.
I've been dying for a new Tmnt game for a while now. I love the franchise and think there's plenty of potential within the Ninja Turtle universe for great gaming experiences. Sadly, most of the recent games haven't delivered on that potential. With a new TV show being a massive success (for good reason too), I figured/hoped that new video games wouldn't be too far behind. Turns out I was right! Here's the press release with the info:
Nickelodeon and Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: Atvi) today announced a worldwide,
Activision Publishing’s Vice President Kurt Niederloh commented on the upcoming games, saying ”The fans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are unique in that they span generations and are very passionate. We respect this passion and look forward to working with Nickelodeon to create games that embody the spirit of the property.”
In total, Activision has agreed to develop three games based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. The first game is expected to be released this Summer, with the following two games to be spread out over the course of the “multi-year” deal. Neither company revealed any details about the upcoming games, nor did they announce the platforms that they were being developed for.
Initially, the studio rehired the writers of the original, Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimillia, to develop a script for Yogi Bear 2 back in May 2011. Unfortunately, producers weren’t very happy with the script and decided to shake things up by bringing in someone new to the project.
According to Deadline, that someone is none other than ...

We reported last May that Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia (Yogi Bear, Tooth Fairy) signed on to write the sequel. Donald De Line and Karen Rosenfelt are producing.
Yogi Bear, released in 2010, took in over $200 million worldwide, with Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake voicing Yogi and Boo-Boo. Anna Faris, Tom Cavanagh, and T.J. Miller starred in live-action roles. It is not known yet if any of these cast members will return for the sequel.
Jay Chandrasekhar is best known for his work as a member of the Broken Lizard troupe, directing, writing, and starring in comedies such as Super Troopers and Beerfest.
Yogi Bear 2 comes to theaters in 2013. The film is directed by Jay Chandrasekhar.
Stars: Dan Ackroyd, Justin Timberlake, Anna Faris, Tom Cavanagh, T.J. Miller | Written by Jeffrey Ventimilia, Joshua Sternin | Directed by Eric Brevig
Yogi Bear, who made his first appearance in 1958 has been a perennial favourite in the Hanna-Barbera canon ever since. Starring in his first non-tv movie since 1964, Yogi is now voiced by Ghostbusters star Dan Aykroyd and his companion Boo-Boo is voiced by pop star and Social Network player, Justin Timberlake. Anna Faris co-stars, with Tom Cavanagh as the long-suffering Ranger Smith, who finds Jellystone Park threatened with closure, with Yogi’s antics poised either to save the day or ruin it.
Despite my feelings of nostalgia for Yogi and Boo-Boo, I was initially slow to warm to the film, which lacks much of the charm of the original cartoons, much like the similar live action Scooby Doo films.
After a while, however, the pitter patter of the
