NBC to cancel 'Bad Judge,' 'A to Z' with zombie twist

11 hours ago

Bad Judge has been disbarred and it's R.I.P. for A to Z as two more fall shows have fallen prey to the broadcast ax. Only this time, there's a Halloween-appropriate twist. NBC announced Friday it will not produce any more episodes of the two Thursday night comedies beyond their initial orders. Bad Judge has shot 10 episodes; A to Z has shot 11. Five episodes each have aired. Both shows will finish production on their 13 episodes and all will air, but NBC has confirmed it will not order episodes beyond that. So the duo are sort of like zombies for the next eight weeks. »

How 'The Big Bang Theory' scored Billy Bob Thornton for a surprise guest spot

13 hours ago

The Big Bang Theory moved back to Thursday night with nothing short of a miracle: The show was able to keep a surprise cameo under wraps ahead of airing, an act that's nearly unheard of in an age where spoilers freely leak long before episodes debut. The CBS comedy welcomed Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton, who played Dr. Oliver Lorvis, a urologist who misunderstands Penny’s (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) flirtation while working and attempts to woo her. How did the cameo come to be? "A few months ago, we had seen an interview with Billy Bob talking about shows he likes. »

Alyssa Milano talks about Savi's 'Mistresses' ending

15 hours ago

Earlier this month, fans of ABC's Mistresses were delighted when they heard that the show had been picked up—then shocked to learn that Alyssa Milano would not be returning to the series. (Milano chose not to move with the show when it relocated to Vancouver move because of her family.) When EW caught up with Milano this week to discuss her role on Project Runway All Stars, we also asked for any updates on Mistresses season 3.

Fall sitcom bummers continue

15 hours ago

Remember a few years ago when broadcast comedies were hot again? That feels like a long time ago. The final new fall comedy of the season debuted Thursday night and the overnight ratings told a familiar story. CBS' The McCarthys launched to 8.8 million viewers and a 1.9 preliminary rating among adults 18-49. That's not nearly as weak as some sitcoms this fall (and we'll get to two of those in a moment). But CBS has the highest benchmarks in the genre, and McCarthys is down 42 percent from last season's premiere of The Millers and down 34 percent from the last debut of »

Benedict Cumberbatch: Yeah, Sherlock Holmes is pretty great at sex

17 hours ago

There's no denying it: Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock Holmes is the object of affection for just about anyone who watches BBC's Sherlock, whether its Molly's unrequited love on the show itself or the legion of Tumblr fans who turn every wink, smirk, and step into a Gif-able moment. But for all the love Holmes receives, he hasn't exactly returned the favor. More bluntly, Holmes has never had sex on the show. Not with an actual proposed love interest, nor with Watson, to the dismay of all "Johnlock" fans. But while viewers shouldn't expect a Sherlock sex scene anytime soon, Cumberbatch »

Are we tired of reality TV?

17 hours ago

Maybe it was DC Cupcakes, because we didn’t need another cable reality show about cake bosses. Or perhaps it was the latest chronicling of blue-collar workers in Alaska or Louisiana. (Doesn’t Crawfish Catchers look tedious? And we bet you can’t even tell whether that title is real or not). Or it could have been Bravo’s seventh Real Housewives series. Or E!’s fourth Kardashians title. Whatever marked the official tipping point, it all feels familiar now: the master chefs, treasure seekers, tattoo artists, makeover experts, ghost hunters, dirty jobbers, untrained pets, C-list celebrity families, and glow-tanned bickering glambots overturning restaurant tables. »

See 'Walking Dead' cannibal Andrew J. West hunting his next target on 'Hot in Cleveland'

Andrew J. West sure does have an appetite. First we saw him eating humans on The Walking Dead as leader of the cannibals at Terminus, and now the man who played Gareth is following that up with a scene in — where else? — a restaurant. West will be appearing on the Nov. 12th episode of TV Land's Hot In Cleveland, and we've got an exclusive early look at his appearance right here. In the episode, West will play a guy who hits on Valerie Bertinelli's Melanie at an L.A. eatery. But not unlike the way Gareth had something »

On Thursday night's show, Colbert announced that the last show of The Colbert Report will be on Thursday, Dec. 18, using the announcement as a ploy to plug the paperback edition of his book, America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren't.  "Stephen Colbert, the guy you've seen here every night for nine years will be gone.

'Arrested Development' creator: A new, chronological version of season 4 is on its way

30 October 2014 1:08 PM, PDT

Whether you loved or hated it, Arrested Development's fourth season was a departure for the show, telling its story out of sequence as each episode focused on a single character's perspective. Sometimes it worked (i.e., Maeby's episode) and sometimes it didn't (some of George Sr. or Lindsay's episodes), but it appears fans will now have a chance to watch the show in a brand-new way. In an interview with Pretentious Film Majors, series creator Mitch Hurwitz discussed a current project he has undertaken for season four. Hurwitz is currently editing the Netflix-only season, which released last year, in »
