Adult Children of Divorce are among us. And they’re probably not as well-adjusted as they might pretend to be, according to Stu Zicherman, whose directorial debut A.C.O.D. tells the story of Carter (Adam Scott), one such product of divorce, as he helps his younger brother (Clark Duke) prepare for his wedding.
Carter owns a successful restaurant. He has a beautiful girlfriend (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). And he’s successfully managed to keep the peace in his tumultuous family life till his brother asks that he get their parents (Richard Jenkins and Catherine O’Hara), who haven’t spoken in 15 years, »

Want to see Michael Cera troll YouTube’s Comedy Week? I don’t want to say too much about his latest project from Jash, the YouTube comedy channel he co-founded with Reggie Watts, Tim & Eric, and Sarah Silverman, but you can check it out below. Written and directed by Janicza Bravo, "Gregory Go Boom" stars Michael Cera as a paraplegic looking for love, and also features Sarah Burns and Brett Gelman. While the premise might be a bit misleading, keep in mind; this was released specifically for YouTube’s Comedy Week. It has a little awkward comedy to get you started, but things take a pretty wild turn towards the end. I have to believe this whole thing is some kind of ironic statement...right? Check it out and let us know what you think. »

You certainly couldn't call Enlightened a ratings success but season one did get some positive attention from critics and at the Golden Globes. Will that attention be enough for HBO to renew the series for season three or will they cancel it instead?
Below are the most recent ratings for the second season of Enlightened on HBO. The TV show's ratings are the best way to tell if a series will be cancelled or renewed for another season.
These figures will be updated as the weeks progress so be sure to bookmark and return to this page:
Update: HBO has deceided to cancel Enlightened after two »
After two low-rated seasons, HBO has decided to not pick up Enlightened for a third season. The show was created by Mike White (School of Rock) and Laura Dern (Jurassic Park), who also starred as the lead in the show. White, Dianne Ladd, Luke Wilson, Timm Sharp and Sarah Burns made up the rest of the ensemble cast.
Season 2 averaged a very low 222,000 viewers per episode and could only manage a 0.1 average in the 18-49 demographic. That was up from its first season but nowhere near the 660,000 viewers fellow HBO show Girls was attracting. Dern won a Golden Globe for Best in a Comedy Series for the first season but that didn’t seem to impress anyone enough to boost the ratings.
"It was a very difficult decision," HBO said in a statement about the cancellation. "We're proud of the show and we look forward to working with Mike White »

HBO has officially canceled "Enlightened" after two critically acclaimed but low-rated seasons.
Dern's starring role as enthusiastic do-gooder Amy Jellicoe won her a richly deserved Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for the first season.
While HBO premiered Season 1 in a failed experiment to expand original programming to Monday nights, Season 2 was paired with the network's buzz comedy "Girls" on Sundays. Unfortunately, the shift barely boosted the ratings despite a dramatic increase in social media chatter, especially near the end of the show's run.
"Enlightened" Season 2 averaged a miniscule 222,000 viewers (up from 170,000 in Season 1) and matched the first season's 0.1 average 18-49 rating. That's way off from lead-in "Girls" Season 2's average of 660,000 viewers and 0.38 in the 18-49 demo. »
If you’ve yet to watch Sunday’s Enlightened, avert your eyes now. Everyone else, read on…
Enlightened‘s Season 2 finale ended with a bang — but also with a peaceful meditation.
After an entire season of working to expose the sins of Abaddon’s greedy, felonious CEO Charles Szidon, Amy finally saw all the information she’d gathered land on the front page of the L.A. Times.
But before the story broke, Szidon learned of Amy’s whistleblowing ways (thanks to Tyler coming clean to his girlfriend/Szidon’s executive assistant Eileen).

Sunday night’s Season 2 finale of Enlightened (HBO, 9:30/8:30c) will see the ultimate showdown between protagonist Amy Jellicoe (Laura Dern) and the unscrupulous overlords at the corporation that employs her. But the outcome of Amy-vs.-Abaddon isn’t the only news that’s keeping the cult favorite’s fanbase in a state of suspense.
TVLine caught up with show creator, executive producer and star Mike White to find out whether Sunday’s installment might be a series finale and to determine if its motley band of characters are likely to get happy endings — or at least a close approximation. »

Ausiello: Now that Jackson has been handed the keys to Seattle Grace, expect some “pretty significant” changes, previews Jesse Williams, who notes that the promotion represents both a “leap forward” and a “leap back” for his well-pedigreed alter ego. “He wants to be taken seriously and to make his own name for himself, but he’s also getting handed a responsibility that is a [direct] result »
