HBO is developing a comedy series with Mike White and Girls producer Murray Miller. Mr. Romance is based on a McSweeny’s article about the Mr. Romance Cover Model Competition. They had me at Mike White, but a show with a premise that is bound to be a hunkarama? I think the following is appropriate…
DC Comics has certainly busy getting its character on TV. Now, Bleeding Cool claims The CW is developing a Young Justice series with Superboy and Miss Martian featured as the team leaders.
I searched for “Greatest super-team to include Superboy” and got this. They’re Young Justice ,right?

"Community" is returning for its fifth season at the beginning of January, back-to-back episodes kick things off on January 2nd. As you probably know as well, Dan Harmon is returning to the show for this fifth season and watching how the show is, once more, altered by that change should prove interesting. All of that, however, is for another day. Today, rather than focusing on possibilities, rather than focusing on what may happen, we can instead deliver to you a gallery with 20 images from the new season. In the gallery you will see Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, »

Rapidly running out of ubiquitous TV presences it hasn’t already cast, Community has reached all the way back to the 1970s to find Paul Williams, the songwriter and actor who was turning up in random guest spots when Community was just a crude crayon drawing on Dan Harmon’s wall. Yvette Nicole Brown tweeted a photo of herself with Williams that declared today her “Fav day on the Community set Ever!” (sorry, every single other guest star), adding the hashtag “#RainbowConnection” as a nod to Williams’ famous song (but definitely not Miss Piggy). There aren’t any other details »
Creator: Dan Harmon
Running Time: 285 minutes
Season 4 of Community has devided many viewers, with the majority declaring that it just isn’t as good as previous seasons. This can probably be attributed to series creator Dan Harmon being removed from the show in a creative capacity (set to return for Season 5), as well as a number of public bust-ups involving one of the show’s stars, Chevy Chase. The show has also been one of the biggest will-they won’t-they in terms of whether the network will renew it for another season. Such talks happen every year. Season 4 was delayed by NBC, meaning all the festive and holiday related episodes (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas) were shown at the wrong time of year. It’s not been a smooth road for »

Season three of Community sees our favourite study group take on Biology 101 that involves: a sabotaged biology experiment, Jeff (Joel McHale) repeating ‘mitosis is’ over and over again and the untimely death of a classmate in a methlab explosion. Outside the classroom Troy (Donald Glover) grapples with the decision about whether to go to air conditioner school (headed up by the brilliant John Goodman as the vice-dean) and as the Dean (Jim Rash) is kidnapped by Chang (Ken Jeong) and his team of interns, the gang are expelled from the only place they have ever fit in, Greendale Community College.

In case there was any doubt, Nathan Fillion is just as cool a dude as you'd always hoped he would be. The "Castle" star and "Firefly" alum recently filmed a guest appearance on "Community," and he showed his thanks in the best way possible: by getting the crew a pizza chef and putting up a big "thank you" sign that shows him as his "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" character Captain Hammer.
The crew, understandably, was ecstatic. "Pizza chef for the #Community crew, courtesy of @NathanFillion!" writer Tim Saccardo tweets. Meanwhile Jonathan Weber tweets, "Thanks @NathanFillion for the pizza!" Fillion responds, "No. Thank You."
"King among kings"? That does seem like a suitable title for Fillion. Need further proof? »

Community heads into syndication on Comedy Central starting Sept. 20, and three cast members from the NBC cult comedy — Joel McHale, Ken Jeong, and Yvette Nicole Brown — have filmed a promo for the cable network alerting you to this. As you can see below, they have found a clever way to joke about the fact that no one really watches the show, as well as NBC’s less-than aggressive promotion of the community college-set series.

NBCUniversal is trying to widen the audience for its flagship property “Sunday Night Football” with a series of promos that burnish the pigskin showcase among not only sports fans but also celebrity-watchers and current-affairs aficionados.
The video vignettes, which will appear online starting Tuesday and debut on TV this weekend in pre-season football coverage, feature various NBCU celebrities, including Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel (from NBC’s “America’s Got Talent); Joan and Melissa Rivers (from E!’s “Fashion Police”); Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski (from MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”); Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Natalie Morales (from NBC’s “Today”) and Ken Jeong (from NBC’s “Community”), all taking part in ersatz try-outs to sing “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,”which has been the “Snf” theme song since 2006.

The introduction of magic to Storybrooke was a warm and destructive welcome in Once Upon a Time Season 2. The second season was filled with highs, lows and a lot of tumultuous, inter-family chaos. Although we discovered most of our characters fairy tale identities, new mysteries unfolded with some of our beloved characters, while more worlds were added to the over-arching mythos. The Blu-ray release collects the entire season, also giving us a few meaty bonus features that explore the muddled and magical world of the Storybrooke kingdom.
In the first season of Once Upon a Time, Storybrooke was always a dull place. Outside of Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle), the characters didn’t have the same zing they had in fairy tale world. What kept us watching was the Lost-style mystery in discovering the real identity of everyone in town. The unfolding origin tale was always exhilarating, even when the »

Chicago – The fourth season of NBC’s “Community” was its most controversial by some margin. The program was barely renewed, its showrunner (Dan Harmon) was unprofessionally fired, and the on-set feuds with co-star Chevy Chase continued. To start the fifth season, Chase is gone and Harmon is back. No one has made out well in the court of public opinion and the fourth season was sometimes unwatchable. You would never know any of this from the recently-released DVD set.
Well, you might suspect a little bit. I went through several of the commentaries (there’s one on each episode) looking for little tidbits and you can hear them between the lines. Writers praise a joke and then throw out an aside about how some fans didn’t like that scene. It’s interesting in that they clearly have heard about and read the fan dissent but have either been »

New Percy Jackson 2,Sea of Monsters movie delivered great action,special effects & more. 20th Century Fox released their new action/fantasy flick, "Percy Jackson 2: Sea Of Monsters" into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out,and thought it was pretty entertaining, serving up non-stop action,great special effects, and more. It stars: Logan Lerman, Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario, Douglas Smith, Mary Birdsong, Yvette Nicole Brown, Missi Pyle, Nathan Fillion, Anthony Head, Paloma Kwiatkowski, Leven Rambin, Stanley Tucci, Robert Maillet, and Zoe Aggeliki. In the new flick, Camp Half-Blood gets attacked by Luke Castellan (Jake Abel), who announces his plans to destroy Mount Olympus. Percy's mentor Chiron (Anthony Head), eventually discovers that Luke has poisoned the magic tree responsible for the barrier that protects Camp Half-Blood, which Percy learns was created out of Thalia Grace, daughter of Zeus, who was killed by a cyclops. This caused the camp »
"Community" isn't lucky only because it managed to get a Season 5, despite low ratings and cast/writer departures. The show is also fortunate in its fans. Now, those fans are getting ready for the second Communicon, a two-day event celebrating all things "Community."
Being the fan-driven event that it is, of course Kickstarter is going to be the funding of choice.
Click here to visit the Communicon Kickstarter page.
Unlike the first year, when "Community" aficionados simply bought tickets for the event, the second Communicon will offer admission only to Kickstarter backers. The campaign launched on Wednesday (Aug. 7) and has only two weeks to make its $13,000 goal.
That shouldn't be too hard though. Over $11,000 was raised in the first 48 hours. "Community" fans are nothing if not dedicated.
Like most Kickstarter projects, backers get special rewards for their donations. At the lowest level ($10), this is as simple as a "thank you" on Twitter. »
"Community" Season 5 is not quite yet in production, but the NBC comedy's star Yvette Nicole Brown (Shirley Bennett) stopped by HuffPost Live to address one of fans' biggest concerns about the new season: Donald Glover's (Troy Barnes) departure.
"My honey," she said, when asked about Glover, before echoing the sentiments she shared with Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live" about the actor-musician needing to "spread his wings" and "fly."
As for how Troy's departure will be handled in "Community" Season 5, Brown's not sure exactly how it will transpire, but she does think some positives could come from it, especially for Abed Nadir (Danny Pudi), Troy's other half. "I think this is going to be good for Abed. I know on the surface it seems like this is going to destroy him because he had a fit when 'Cougar Town' was canceled initially. So I know that »
