Selfie Video: Karen Gillan Returns to Her Comedy Roots on New ABC Sitcom

39 minutes ago

Doctor Who fans will be shocked to see beloved alum Karen Gillan on ABC's new comedy Selfie not only because of the Brit's impressive American accent, but also because of the genre switch.

"I started off in comedy actually, so it's kind of like a return to that for me," Gillan tells TVGuide.com in the video below. "I like doing an American accent."

On the new series, premiering Tuesday at 8/7c on ABC, the actress gets to flex those comedy muscles as Eliza Dooley, a young Los Angeles-area woman who has tons of social media followers but "doesn't really know how to connect with people in real life," she says.

Eliza soon asks her coworker Henry (John Cho), a marketing guru, to "make Eliza a more acceptable human being," Cho says.

16 hours ago

It's been nearly four months since a bus crash on the New Jersey Turnpike left actor Tracy Morgan in critical condition and fellow comedian Jim McNair dead.

In July, the 30 Rock alum, who was among several people injured in the crash, sued Walmart alleging negligence on the company's part for not recognizing that truck driver Kevin Roper had been awake for more than 24 hours prior to getting behind the wheel of the truck that eventually slammed into Morgan's limo bus.

13 Times ABC Show Titles Made Us Say Wtf

18 hours ago

What's in a name? A lot when it comes to show titles. Naming a show isn't easy. You want to be brief but convey what the show is about, catchy but not cliché, original but not too out-there, inviting but not alienating. The last one sounds like a no-brainer, but tell that to ABC. For a network nicknamed the Alphabet, it has been the worst title offender in recent years. (But hey, they are into irony.)

18 hours ago

It was an amazing déjà vu. For the second time in four seasons, the beach-set first leg onThe Amazing Race ended with the last three teams, including a pair of firefighters, taking a four-hour penalty on a Roadblock.

Why I'm Giving ABC's Rom-Com Manhattan Love Story a Second Chance (Despite a Bad First Date)

19 hours ago

I'll be the first to admit I didn't love the pilot of ABC's Manhattan Love Story. In fact, you could even say I was disappointed. A show about dating, set in New York City is totally up my alley. But months after watching the less-than-stellar pilot, I got an opportunity to watch the show's third episode, while also voicing my concerns — mostly about the heavy use of voiceover — to the creator Jeff Lowell. I came out of both my conversation and the screening pleasantly surprised.

Watch the Latest (Bizarre) Simpsons Couch Gag

20 hours ago

It was a big night for The Simpsons, which featured both a major death and a buzzed about opening couch gag.

The Season 26 premiere kicked off with Homer in front of the TV furiously tapping the remote before the date scrolled to the past and then future and he turned into a floating tentacle head. Bart and Lisa, both of whom also transformed into bizarre shapes, then appeared on screen as a robot-sounding Lisa yelled, "I am Simpson" followed by Bart adding, "Don't have cow man." What followed was a weird mash-up of shapes and sounds and frankly, nothing that appeared to make sense.  

Which character died on The Simpsons premiere?

Turns out, the opening was hand-drawn and animated by Oscar nominee and Indie filmmaker Don Hertzfeldt. Apparently, Hertzfeldt is a huge fan of the series:

Derek Jeter ended his professional baseball career on a high note, leading his Yankees to a victory in his final Mlb game.

Playing against their biggest rival, the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees won 9-5 with Jeter hitting his 3,465th base hit -- the most in the franchise's history — and earning his 1,311th Rbi. After an emotional farewell in New York last week, the 40-year-old shortstop was on the lineup for his final game as a designated hitter. After he reached base on a single, he was replaced by pinch runner Brian McCann. Jeter hugged the Red Sox pitcher and then tipped his helmet to his Yankees crowd before going back into the dugout.

Ask Matt: Good Wife, Parenthood, Gotham, Murder, Castle, Scorpion, Forever and More

29 September 2014 6:32 AM, PDT

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: Just when I thought The Good Wife couldn't top Season 5, Season 6 is off to a humdinger of a start! I certainly didn't see Cary's arrest coming, and I can't wait to find out what they have in store for us next. Matt Czuchry is terrific, and I'm thrilled he's getting this opportunity for a meaty storyline. As opposed to a show such as The Vampire Diaries, which tore through so much plot I stopped caring (no one stays dead, so where are the stakes?), The Good Wife earns its twists and turns, and only gets better with each game-changer. I've thoroughly enjoyed it from the get-go, but in the last year, it has vaulted to the top of my can't-miss shows. As we all know, many programs decline after the first few seasons and limp to the finish line. »

Gotham Exclusive: Carol Kane on Playing the Penguin's Mom and Loving a Monster

28 September 2014 5:04 PM, PDT

Anyone who watched the first episode of Fox's Gotham could make the argument that James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) is actually responsible for turning low-level thug Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) into the man who will eventually become the Penguin. 

But did Oswald's descent into evil start before he was marched to the end of that Gotham City pier at gunpoint? On Monday's episode (8/7c, Fox) viewers will meet Oswald's mother, a European immigrant named Gertrude Kabelput — and in a brilliant bit of casting, she'll be played by Oscar nominee and two-time Emmy winner Carol Kane
