Early Pilot Buzz: What’s Heating Up for the 2017-2018 TV Season?

28 April 2017 1:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With Upfronts still more than two weeks away, it’s still early in the decision-making process, but as the current broadcast season winds down, television executives are beginning to form opinions on the pilots in contention for their network’s 2017-2018 slate.

As always, a handful of projects are rising as early frontrunners, while others have not impressed with their first cuts and are in need of re-shoots and re-tooling. No stark trends have emerged across the broadcast networks, though there are a number of military-themed dramas, many female-led comedies and lighter one-hours in the works. In contrast to the past few pilot seasons, reboots are not as hot this year, though there are a few, such as the CW’s “Dynasty,” “S.W.A.T.” at CBS and “What About Barb” at NBC.

Of course, television executives and writers are all on edge with a possible WGA strike on the horizon, but »

Louis C.K. Under Fire for Plagiarism but His Skit was 100 Times Funnier

13 April 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Louis C.K. has been the subject of plagiarism rumors before but he’s never been the one accused of doing the plagiarizing.  Remember a couple years back when it was Dane Cook accused of stealing Louis C.K. material?   Now it’s C.K.’s turn to face the fire.  If any of you saw his most recent hosting gig on SNL you might remember a skit called “Birthday Clown.”  In it Louis C.K. plays this lonely guy who hires a clown for his birthday.  Only C.K. is an adult, is alone, and has no one else in the house.  Bobby Moynihan, who plays the

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Host Louis C.K. Plays Problematic Bingo

9 April 2017 8:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last Episode Review: Scarlett Johansson And A Cute Pug Can’t Distract Us From Impending Doom

After a month-long drought, “Saturday Night Live” returned last night with an impossible amount of material to cover. Unfortunately, they under-delivered. It was staggering. The first half of the show poked fun at Trump, Kendall Jenner’s Pepsi commercial, and the Cristiano Ronaldo bust that was forged in the fires of Mount Doom. The second half was stronger, and at least a little more relevant, but the entire episode was hard to watch. Racism! Rape culture! Borat accents! It was like 90 straight minutes of problematic Bingo.

Host: Louis C.K.

Okay, what was that monologue? He opened with a racist joke, defended said joke, and then moved into an extended bit of weird, anti-comedy standup about animals. With out any subtext. Just bad standup about animals. Like a moose, and a goat. Then he migrated »

Louis C.K. on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See

9 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Given the state of the world in 2017, it's almost unbelievable that this week marked only the seventh episode of Saturday Night Live this calendar year. Whatever momentum and ratings that it has gathered in that time, it's still constantly playing catch-up with its schedule as is. As popular as it's been (and ratings suggest it's insanely popular right now), it's still been hamstrung by the paucity of new episodes. That makes every one that it does that much more important.

Louis C.K. Hosts SNL: Alec Baldwin Plays Trump and O'Reilly, Pepsi Ad Mockery and More Highlights

8 April 2017 10:44 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

You might have expected Louis C.K. to begin this weekend’s Saturday Night Live with commentary on the Trump administration. Instead, he delved into a monologue about a racist chicken, and it was delightful.

“Here’s a joke: Why did the chicken cross the road?” the Louie star asked the audience. “Because there was a black guy walking behind him. He was new to the city, this chicken, and he was like, ‘I feel like he’s following me, but I’m not sure’… So he crossed the road and the black guy went home… and the chicken thought, ‘Oh, »

After Decades of Crafting Fake Ads, ‘Saturday Night Live’ Plans Real Spots for Verizon, Apple

7 April 2017 10:11 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Anyone who watches “Saturday Night Live” on NBC knows the late-night program’s antics stop when the show goes to a commercial break. In at least one coming “SNL” broadcast, that won’t be the case.

Viewers who stick around for the ads either during the April 8th or the April 15th broadcast of NBC’s late-night institution will glimpse a spot for Verizon written by “Weekend Update” anchor Colin Jost and featuring cast member Kenan Thompson. The bespoke pitch is part of an ongoing effort by NBC and executive producer Lorne Michaels’ hardworking crew of satirists to make the show more compelling to watch live, rather than via clips the next morning.

“Everyone is struggling now in a world where there is so much media,” Michaels told Variety in an interview. “We are all competing for sponsors, and everything is being reinvented. ‘SNL’ has been reinventing itself from season two.”

The Anti-Binge Playlist: 10 Great Standalone Episodes You Can Stream Without Watching an Entire Season

6 April 2017 11:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Time has become a precious commodity for television viewers. With dozens of original shows regularly premiering on streaming services alone, there are more options than ever, especially when embarking on new show catch-up. When whole seasons are available overnight, that can make prospects seem even more daunting.

But even if it’s just for a single season, sometimes a show’s best episodes come later in their run. And when they arrive, part of these memorable episodes stand out because they stand alone.

That’s why, in the spirit of helping out with a TV streaming sampler of sorts, we’ve compiled a must-see list of ten episodes from Amazon, Hulu and Netflix series that offer a convenient non-pilot entry point. Sample them à la carte or use them to help get some new fans hooked.

Watch Naomi Watts, Jacob Tremblay in First ‘Book of Henry’ Trailer

30 March 2017 1:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Focus Features on Thursday released the first official trailer for its eerie upcoming thriller, “The Book of Henry.”

This tangled family drama marks a striking atmospheric departure for filmmaker Colin Trevorrow, who ascended the ranks of sci-fi prominence after 2015’s “Jurassic World” (Trevorrow’s sophomore directorial endeavor) became a record-breaking blockbuster sequel. The trailer sees a glimpse of some arresting performances by “spooky cerebral drama” veterans Naomi Watts and Jacob Tremblay, best known for his haunting performance alongside Brie Larson in “Room,” as well as fiery teenage dance prodigy Maddie Ziegler of “Dance Moms” and Sia fame.

Book of Henry Trailer Arrives from the Director of Jurassic World

30 March 2017 10:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Focus Features has released the first trailer and two new posters for the upcoming drama The Book of Henry, which is set for release on June 16, 2017. This family drama marks just the third film for director Colin Trevorrow, who started his career with the offbeat indie hit Safety Not Guaranteed, which he parlayed into making one of the biggest blockbuster sequels ever with 2015's Jurassic World. The Book of Henry marks another drastic departure for the filmmaker, veering into the family drama genre in what could be one of the sleeper hits of the summer.

Sometimes things are not always what they seem, especially in the small suburban town where the Carpenter family lives. Single suburban mother Susan Carpenter (Naomi Watts) works as a waitress at a diner, alongside feisty family friend Sheila (Sarah Silverman). Her younger son Peter (Jacob Tremblay) is a playful 8-year-old. Taking care of everyone and »

Jaeden Lieberher in First Trailer for Trevorrow's 'The Book of Henry'

30 March 2017 9:37 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We have to make it better. There's only one way to stop it." Focus Features has debuted the first trailer for the film The Book of Henry, the latest from director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed, Jurassic World). Unlike his past two films, this one is a more conventional drama with real people (and no sci-fi). The Book of Henry is about a single mother raising two boys, one of who happens to be a genius. The cast includes Jacob Tremblay and Jaeden Lieberher as the two boys, along with Naomi Watts, Lee Pace, Sarah Silverman, Maddie Ziegler, Dean Norris, and Bobby Moynihan. This seems like a very nice, charming drama until - wait, Naomi Watts is a sniper now?! As odd as that twist is, I still want to watch this. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Colin Trevorrow's The Book of Henry, direct from YouTube: The Book of Henry »
