‘The Big Bang Theory’ Rings In Its New Season (Spoilers)

‘The Big Bang Theory’ Rings In Its New Season (Spoilers)
The long history of sitcoms says that series frequently take their lives – or at least, their laughs – in their hands when they begin pairing up and marrying off characters. Still, when entering your ninth season, as “The Big Bang Theory” did on Monday, there’s a temptation to take such chances, in part because there are few new frontiers left to explore. Having already cashed in fabulously on every conceivable level, no one associated with the show has anything to lose. Viewers, however, might come up on the short end if the direction augured by the premiere is any guide.

After several on-again, off-again permutations (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched), the wedding of Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) finally happened, although in a slightly novel twist, it was treated almost as an afterthought. That’s because a fight between the two — over a kiss he

'Big Bang Theory' Season 9 Trailer Teases the Big Wedding
Is it too early to call this the wedding of the year? Yes, the cat has long ago been let out of the bag. Leonard and Penny are finally tying the knot in the The Big Bang Theory Season 9 premiere episode The Matrimony Momentum. And lt looks like Leonard's having a bit of a problem carrying Penny across the threshold. CBS has released the first trailer, and it looks like the couple's nuptials are very barebones, understated and definitely no frills as they enjoy their short honeymoon in Las Vegas.

This latest sneak peek debuted last night during the premiere episode of Late Show with Stephen Colbert. We get only a fleeting glimpse of Penny (Kaley Cuoco) in her wedding attire as she prepares for her very short walk down the isle with Leonard (Johnny Galecki). The rest of The Big Bang gang are watching everything go down via satellite.

Melissa Tang may ruffle some honeymoon feathers on “The Big Bang Theory,” as she’s been cast as Mandy, the woman Leonard kissed on that North Sea expedition, much to Penny’s dismay, TVLine reports. Tang — who is no stranger to Chuck Lorre land with a recurring gig on “Mom,” and also having appeared on one episode of “How I Met Your Mother” — will first appear in episode two of Season 9.

Before Mandy (Tang) comes into the picture, “Big Bang” picks up on Sept. 21 a few hours after where Season 8 left off with Penny and Leonard heading to Sin City to make their relationship official.

The Goodwin Games: Cancelled? Renewed for Season Two?

Tonight marks the finale of The Goodwin Games, Fox's most recent sitcom. Has it been a ratings success? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

The Goodwin Games follows three estranged siblings -- an overachieving surgeon (Scott Foley), a struggling actress (Becki Newton); and a career petty criminal (T.J. Miller). They return home for their father's funeral and are informed that their father's will awards them $23 million but only if they agree to compete in a series of games that end up bringing them closer as a family. The cast also includes Kat Foster, Melissa Tang, and Beau Bridges.

The sitcom was initially supposed to air last fall but Fox decided to save it for mid-season. Then, in November, the network cut Goodwin Games' episode order (from 13 to just seven installments). They then opted to hold the premiere until

The Goodwin Games TV Review – Watch It Before Premiere

The Goodwin Games stars Scott Foley, Becki Newton, and T.J. Miller as the Goodwin siblings who recently lost their father, Benjamin Goodwin (Beau Bridges). A bit of an odd duck, Benjamin had a quirky parenting style, which involved a lot of games, and there’s no reason that his death should be any different. It turns out that he has several million dollars, and he’s going to give it to whoever wins The Goodwin Games, an unknown assortment of challenges designed to get his kids back together.

Henry (Foley), Chloe (Newton), and Jimmy (Miller) are about as diverse as a set of siblings can be. An overachieving surgeon, a flaky, hopeful actress, and a repeat con with no sense of responsibility, the Goodwins have one thing in common, wanting to get away from their dad. His strange parenting theory apparently pushed his kids away, and he repeatedly admits to

TV Review: ‘The Goodwin Games’

TV Review: ‘The Goodwin Games’
Remember “Ben & Kate,” the sweet little comedy about oddball siblings Fox aired — and pretty quickly canceled — earlier this season? Turns out the network developed a logical single-camera companion to the show, which should provide small comfort to “The Goodwin Games,” a series from the creators of “How I Met Your Mother” being rather conspicuously burned off in the summer heat. Mildly charming but exceptionally thin, it makes it hard to fault Fox for its lack of faith. So let the “Games” begin, but don’t expect many to wind up carrying a torch for it.

The series hinges on a trio of completely unbelievable siblings, reunited by the death of their father (Beau Bridges, in full mad-scientist mode). As if plucked from “Gilligan’s Island,” they include a buttoned-up doctor (Scott Foley), an actress (“Ugly Betty’s” Becki Newton) and a nincompoop thief (T.J. Miller) freshly paroled from prison.

The Best Broadcast Pilot Orders of the 2013-2014 Season: ABC and Fox

By Rachel Bennett

Television Editor & Columnist

***

It’s pilot season, which means your favorite out-of-work TV actors, actresses, creators and writers are getting a chance to return to the small screen once more.

Although we have yet to know what new series we’ll see next year, the networks have been busy selecting projects to consider for their schedules. So far, almost 100 scripts have been chosen, and audiences will only get to see a handful actually come to fruition.

Several are duds, but there are a few promising prospects that I hope network executives will keep around for the 2013-2014 season — even if it means they have to cancel old favorites to make room (just keep Parks and Recreation, Ok, NBC?).

Check out my choices for the best prospective ABC and Fox pilots, and read my selections for NBC and CBS if you missed them yesterday:

'The Goodwin Games': Fox cuts order from 13 to 7 episodes

Fox has trimmed the order on its midseason comedy "The Goodwin Games" -- because, the network says, it doesn't need as many episodes.

The series starring Scott Foley, Becki Newton and T.J. Miller got a standard 13-episode order when Fox picked it up for midseason. This week, though, the network decided to trim the order to just seven episodes. When the cast and crew wrap episode 7 Friday (Nov. 2), they'll be done for the season.

The reason for the shortened order, a network rep tells Zap2it, has more to do with Fox's other comedies than with "The Goodwin Games" itself. Fox has already ordered 24 episodes of "Raising Hope," "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project" for this season, along with 19 episodes of "Ben and Kate." That means less room for 13 "Goodwin Games" episodes on the midseason schedule.

The show wasn't part of Fox's midseason premiere dates announcement, but it will likely

Fox Announces Fall Schedule – Get A Look At The New Shows While You Can

It’s that time of year, and the networks are revealing their schedules for fall. Fox is always an interesting network when it comes to the upfront season, because they usually don’t have a lot of changes, but they often have fascinating (if doomed) series on the horizon.

The full schedule is below, as are breakdowns of the specific shows, along with trailers, and I want to make sure to point out that they are likely to expire very soon, so you want to catch them while you can.

The really big news for fall is that Glee is moving. The not so big news is that mid-week primetime is still going to be taken over by reality shows. Good news, though not quite news at this point, is that fans of Bones and Fringe are going to get more of their favorite shows, despite the fact that both

It's mid-May, and in the world of television that can only mean one thing: the television network upfronts are announced, and we find out what shows have been cancelled and what's coming for the fall 2012 TV season.

Today it was Fox Broadcasting's turn to reveal what's in store for viewers of their channel. With some old favorites gone (like House), there are several openings on the broadcaster's iternary. Let's see what's new, what's coming back, and how Fox describes their new programs.

New shows:

Ben And Kate (creator: Dana Fox)

What happens when an exuberant, irresponsible dreamer who always says “yes” moves in with his overly responsible little sister to help raise her five-year-old daughter? Ben And Kate, a new single-camera young ensemble comedy, follows these odd-couple siblings as they push each other out of their comfort zones and into real life.
