“Do you honestly think that things just work out for the best? That true love conquers all?”
Showtime’s The Affair is posing a tough question in the first trailer for its upcoming second season.
RelatedThe Affair Season Finale Recap: They Can’t Handle the Truth
In the video below, Alison and Noah’s morally ambiguous relationship appears much less romantic than it did in Season 1: They fight, they cry in the shower and Noah, who was arrested at the end of last year’s finale, is thrown into a jail cell. (What are you waiting for? Press play! »
Voting closed for Emmy nominations on Friday. Ordinarily, I would have already completed my usual If I Had An Emmy Ballot exercise by now, but various other projects got in the way, which means what I'm about to post is even more hypothetical than usual, since it's after the voting deadline. As always, I'm working with the choices listed on the actual Emmy ballots, which means I have to go along with where various shows and actors were categorized and submitted. So I have to consider "Orange Is the New Black" a drama, have to consider Key and Peele supporting actors on their own show, and can't go off the ballot to try nominating an actor like Max Greenfield from "New Girl," who didn't even put his name up for submission. Also, while I've done these as a bunch of separate posts the last few years, this thing's already so »

All this week, we’re presenting the Vulture TV Awards, honoring the best in television from the past year. The nominees are: Louis and Jessica, Fresh Off the BoatJane and Rafael, Jane the VirginDanny and Mindy, The Mindy ProjectBob and Linda, Bob’s BurgersStef and Lena, The Fosters And the Best Couple is ...Louis and Jessica, Fresh Off the Boat Every TV couple, like every couple in real life, has problems, and the strength of their relationship is determined by how well they handle them. The Mindy Project’s Mindy and Danny approach life differently, which leads to silly misunderstandings and, occasionally, heartache. Rafael struggles to meet Jane's expectations on Jane the Virgin. These couples are flawed and realistic, their issues familiar. Fresh Off the Boat’s Louis (Randall Park) and Jessica (Constance Wu) Huang have problems, too, but unlike most couples we see on TV, their biggest problems are »

Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, Broad City I don't know that I'd tend to an actual friend after he or she had dental surgery, but I wanted to spend every waking second with Abbi in her post-wisdom-teeth haze. I'm not a big kiss-and-tell these days, but if I thought Ilana's twerking might encourage me to be more sexually adventurous, I'd give her a call. I believe St. Marks Place is a grotesque wasteland (except for that one good bar), but I'd happily walk down it, flipping the bird, alongside the heroines of Broad City.

A version of this story first appeared in the TheWrap Magazine’s Emmy Comedy-Drama Issue. #selfieinterview produced in partnership with Verge. ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat” is only the second sitcom about Asian-Americans, and the first since Margaret Cho‘s All-American Girl in 1994. It has also proven to be a showcase for actress Constance Wu, who plays the wife in a Taiwanese family who move to Orlando to open a restaurant. Wu’s previous roles were mostly in support in projects like “Stephanie Daley” and “Law & Order: Svu.” “I think that it’s great that we’re claiming our identity as Asian-Americans, »

When is a “swirling” rumor not a rumor at all? When it’s merely TVLine suggesting that Grey’s Anatomy would be wise to welcome back Katherine Heigl to the role she created back in March 2005.
Nonetheless, Entertainment Tonight invited Heigl to share if there is any truth to the “rumor” that she will return as Dr. Izzie Stevens. “There is not, I’m sorry,” she states.

Monday’s installment of The Bachelorette was perhaps the weirdest yet.
The episode, which began with Ian Thomson leaving the competition on his own terms, also included a faux-funeral for Kaitlyn in Ireland, a surprise performance from The Cranberries and a dramatic cliffhanger conversation between Kaitlyn and Shawn.
And yet, none of those moments were quite as strange, shocking and watercooler-worthy as Kaitlyn’s pre-fantasy-suite sex with Nick, which took place at the end of a one-on-one date in Dublin that featured make-out sesh after make-out sesh.

The Television Critics Association has announced the nominees for the 31st Annual TCA Awards, and Fox’s mighty Empire and Amazon’s groundbreaking Transparent lead the pack with four nods apiece.
Network-by-network, HBO came out on top with seven total nominations, while ABC, CBS, AMC, and FX each amassed five.

Freshman shows topped the Television Critics Association annual awards, with Fox’s “Empire” and Amazon’s “Transparent” leading the pack with four nods each, including the prestigious program of the year.
The nominations were particularly widespread this year across networks, with each of the broadcast networks getting noms: ABC (5), CBS (5), Fox (4), NBC (3, though all in the heritage category), and The CW (4), which was recognized for both “Jane the Virgin” and “The Flash.”
HBO tops the network count with 7 noms (with two for “Game of Thrones”), followed by ABC, CBS, AMC and FX with 5 each. Amazon racked up 4, courtesy of “Transparent,” while Netflix settled for one for “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” in the comedy category.
The org’s endorsement of this year’s new shows meant last year’s winners are Mia. Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black,” which won outstanding new program, failed to gain a single nod, as did »

"Empire" and "Transparent" were the big winners when the 2015 Television Criticis Association Awards nominees were announced, but will either newbie be able to knock off more well-established shows like "Mad Men" and "Big Bang Theory"? The way the TCA Awards (which will be presented at an untelevised ceremony in Beverly Hills on August 8) are structured, with no differentiation between lead and supporting actors, or between actors and actresses, and with a separate category to honor new series, a new show inevitably leads each year's nominations list. In this case, it was a pair of them: "Empire," which almost single-handedly brought the primetime soap, the Fox network, and broadcast television itself back from the dead; and "Transparent," the beautiful Amazon dramedy that the TCA membership at large opted to vote in as a comedy(*). (*) There are no rules about which categories a show can be assigned to — see also "The Daily Show" frequently being nominated for, »

By any measure, television’s renaissance has been good for women. But the long list of compelling female characters gets shorter when drama series are taken out of the mix.
Across broadcast, cable and digital, traditional half-hour comedies don’t pack the same pop-culture punch as the antics of Olivia Pope, Carrie Mathison, Alicia Florrick or Daenerys Targaryen. It’s harder to generate consistent laughs than it is consistent gasps, based on the ratio of dramas to comedies across the dial these days.
The only thing harder, it seems, than fielding a fresh comedy hit is for an actress to become a breakout star in a new comedy. This is where a little Emmy attention could offer a big boost to a promising show and budding talent. But Emmy voters are inclined to favor incumbents, which leaves little room for fresh faces.
Since 2010, at least three of the nominees in »

Another day, another awards show… But what made Sunday’s Critics’ Choice Television Awards different was the array of American talent taking home trophies and nominations.
Bet Networks made their Critics’ Choice debut with the “Book of Negroes.” The 35-year-old channel — which expanded its network to scripted programming in 2011 — gained its first award nominations with best limited series and series’ leading lady Aunjanue Ellis for actress in a movie or limited series. Cast members along with network CEO Debra Lee and head of programming Stephen Hill attended the awards show and after-party.
“It feels a little like someone let the door open, like, ‘Do they know?’” Ellis kidded. She got a little more serious, “I’m claiming it, it’s a movement.”
Lou Gossett Jr. spoke candidly alongside co-star Lyric Bent about the awards show’s diversity.

It should come as no surprise that critically-acclaimed series such as "The Americans" and "Silicon Valley" took home top prizes at the fifth annual Critics' Choice TV Awards on Sunday night (it's right there in the name of the event, after all). But there was plenty of love for popular shows, too, proving that quality programming is becoming more widely available and amenable to audiences during this so-called golden age of television.
"The Americans" and "Silicon Valley" each claimed high honors in the best drama and comedy series categories, respectively, and their home networks were the biggest winners of the night: HBO snagged seven statuettes, while FX collected four. "Silicon Valley" was among the shows that won multiple awards, with T.J. Miller taking home the trophy for best supporting actor in a comedy.
Freshman series "Better Call Saul" and "Transparent" also walked away with two trophies apiece, while new sensation »

The 5th annual Critics’ Choice TV Awards took place Sunday at the Beverly Hilton hotel and aired live on A&E. “So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley emceed the proceedings — and also found time to accept the prize for best reality host midway through the show. Despite playfully jabbing rival host Tom Bergeron during her intro by joking she’d purposefully gotten him relegated to one of the back tables in the ballroom, she was spotted warmly embracing the “Dancing with the Stars” mainstay during the ad break.
The first prize of the night went to “Better Call Saul’s” Jonathan Banks for best supporting actor in a drama, and the thesp also had the dubious honor of earning the ceremony’s first (but far from the last) bleep during his acceptance speech. The “Breaking Bad” spinoff later won a second award for Bob Odenkirk’s lead »
