Magic, Music and Nick Offerman's Sex Advice: An Evening With 'Childrens Hospital'

26 August 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"Childrens Hospital" will head into its seventh season with four Emmy nods and two wins under its belt, and spent an evening at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in Los Angeles -- maybe to campaign a little for another win, but mostly to celebrate another year of satire, sitcom and medically accurate advice. Read More: Review: 'Hot Tub Time Machine 2' Starring Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Adam Scott and Clark Duke The Rob Corddry comedy was born out of the compulsory idleness of 2007's Writers Guild Strike, and found a niche to stream online with The WB before Adult Swim picked up the rights to air, where "Childrens Hospital" has remained since. It stars an ensemble cast portraying the staff of Childrens Hospital – named after Dr. Arthur Childrens – who also star in medical drama "Childrens Hospital," the show within the show.     After a screening of the show's Emmy nominated episode, »

Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel on 'Crash Test' and the tyranny of @Fatjew

18 August 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel have plenty in common: endless improv chops, an appreciation for terrible cinema (Scheer hosts the podcast "How Did This Get Made?" about lame movies; Huebel hosts the La Upright Citizens Brigade revue "The Shit Show" where guests discuss their worst performances and gigs), and now, the experience of performing together on a giant glass bus. Their new special "Crash Test" sees the comics entertaining an audience on a large party bus as it travels through Los Angeles. On their journey, they meet fellow comics Aziz Ansari, Andy Daly, Rob Corddry, Aubrey Plaza, Natasha Leggero, Jack McBrayer, Thomas Lennon, Ian Karmel, and more. It's a wild ensemble held together by Scheer and Huebel's vaudevillian stamina. We caught up with Scheer and Huebel to discuss friendship in the comedy community, the greatness of bad movies, and what to think of the plagiarism scandal surrounding Twitter star Josh Ostrovsky, »

The final Daily Show with Jon Stewart - as it happened

6 August 2015 9:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The satirist and provider of ‘fake news’ stepped down after 16 yearsStewart hosted a 50-minute send off with guest appearances from Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert and Hillary ClintonHe signed off with Born to Run played by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band

12.07am Et

As the audience descend on to the set there’s a hug between Stewart and the E Street Band. He’s on the mic again to just say: “Thank you and goodnight.” Simple but effective. That was pretty much the theme for tonight. A great rapid rundown of all the people who made the show possible with a bare minimal of sentimental moments directed at Stewart.

“Welcome to the Daily Show. I am Jon Stewart. Thank you very much for coming.” That understated opening gambit was how Stewart began his final appearance during his run as host of the show.

For 16 and a half years, Jon Stewart »

HBO Renews Dwayne Johnson Comedy ‘Ballers’ for Season 2

10 July 2015 10:07 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO has renewed the Dwayne Johnson sports comedy “Ballers” for a second season.

The half-hour series has generated strong buzz for HBO since its June 21 debut.

“The charismatic and hugely talented Dwayne Johnson, along with the rest of the ‘Ballers’ cast, has truly struck a chord with the HBO audience,” said HBO original programming chief Michael Lombardo. “We are thrilled with the overwhelming response the series has received and look forward to another exciting season.”

Ballers” is akin to “Entourage” set among athletes, and it hails from many alums of that show. HBO bills the first episode of “Ballers” as its most-watched episode of a comedy series since 2009, with multiplatform plays totaling 8.9 million viewers to date, plus another 5.6 million views arising from the decision to make the pilot available via Johnson’s Facebook page.

Johnson plays a former football player who is restyling himself as a financial manager to players based in Miami. »

Best of Late Night TV: Danielle Brooks's Nsfw Taystee Rap, Halle Berry Cancels, 'Couple or Friends?'

1 July 2015 12:03 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Halle Berry was supposed to be on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Tuesday night to promote tonight's premiere of "Extant" Season 2. But she canceled, apparently not feeling well, which Jimmy said was a particular blow to Guillermo, who was looking forward to seeing her. So they did a little sketch where Jimmy broke the news to his sidekick, and a lot of slapping ensued. Kathy Griffin filled in for Halle Berry, who "hurt her back" (Kathy's air quotes). Jimmy said he called Kathy Tuesday afternoon as a last-minute fill-in. Kathy took the opportunity to shade Halle a teensy bit and promote her 80-city tour.

Watch: First Episodes Of HBO's 'Ballers' And 'The Brink' In Full

25 June 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

With "True Detective" dominating audience eyeballs and media coverage this week, you may have forgotten that HBO debuted two other shows on Sunday night: "Ballers" and "The Brink." But now's your chance to catch up with them again for the first time. HBO has dropped the first full episodes for each show on Facebook. "Ballers" stars Dwayne Johnson and Rob Corddry and is basically "Entourage" in the world of sports. I didn't particularly care for it, but the glossy sheen makes it somewhat engaging, but not necessarily filling. As for "The Brink," Tim Robbins and Jack Black lead this one set in the world of geopolitics, following the personalities trying to stop Wwiii. Give them a look at "The Brink" below and "Ballers" right here, and let us know what you think in the comments section.

Ballers: Did HBO's Sports Comedy Score With Its First Episode?

21 June 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Don’t be fooled by the stereotypes you may have heard about retirement: For ex-nfl players, it isn’t all about golf courses, Bingo Nights and vacation homes in Miami.

Well, actually, the Miami part is true.

But for retired Miami Dolphins linebacker Spencer Strasmore  — the protagonist of HBO’s sports comedy Ballers, played by San AndreasDwayne Johnson — his post-pro football life isn’t quite what he imagined. Despite living in a beautiful Florida home, with a gorgeous woman on his arm, Spencer’s new career as a financial consultant to the current NFL stars isn’t fulfilling him. »

Rob Corddry on Ballers: 'This is the closest I've gotten to my childhood version of making it'

21 June 2015 5:12 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

HBO’s new series pairs Corddry with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in a ‘dramedy’ about a financial manager for sports stars and, he says, ‘I feel very lucky’

Rob Corddry is running late. When he calls, barely six minutes behind schedule, he apologizes profusely and says: “It’s poor planning on my part and reflects poorly on my mother.”

That said, Corddry is a nice guy and that reputation will be only slightly tarnished by his new role in HBO’s Ballers.

TV Review: Free the Rock From HBO’s Ballers

19 June 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

"If it drives, flies, floats, or fucks, lease it!" That's the advice financial consultant Spencer Strassmore (The Rock) gives his fellow NFL pals in Ballers, and that's the show in a nutshell: ostentatious, competitive consumption; boring, dated misogyny; with an air of hollow falseness. Come on! Everyone knows it's cheaper to buy than to lease a car.Look, we all love the Rock. That's basically the point of America. So the fact that even he cannot liven things up should indicate just how rote Ballers feels. His Spencer is a former NFL player, now trying to figure out his new career as a financial planner. His boss, Joe (Rob Corddry), is on his case to chat up more business, so he tries: There's the drama-plagued Ricky (John David Washington, who actually played in the NFL and is also the son of Denzel Washington), the hot-shot rookie Vernon (Donovan W.

Review: Why did Dwayne Johnson choose HBO's 'Ballers' as his first TV show?

18 June 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I know exactly why HBO wanted to make its newest comedy series, "Ballers." It's created by "Entourage" producer Steven Levinson, it takes many of that show's lifestyle porn elements and applies them to the world of the NFL and, oh yeah, it stars Dwayne Johnson in his first regular TV role since he called himself The Rock and was a full-time part of the WWE's roster. No, the question I have about "Ballers" (which debuts Sunday at 10 after the new season of "True Detective") is why exactly Johnson felt that this should be his first wholly scripted TV series. "Ballers" isn't especially bad, but nor is it especially good. It's a show that's neither fish nor fowl: not nearly funny enough to really qualify as a comedy (and it's not until the fourth and final episodes sent to critics that it even seems to be trying all that hard to »
