J.K. Simmons Hosts SNL: What Were the Best and Worst Sketches?
2 hours ago
J.K. Simmons may be the least-recognizable name to serve as Saturday Night Live host during the show’s landmark 40th season. But the beloved character actor — who just scored an Oscar nomination for Whiplash — seemed on paper like a great choice for the gig, thanks to his ability to disappear into roles in everything from Oz to The Closer to Growing Up Fisher (to his ads for Farmers Insurance).
Alas, while many of the episode’s sketches had even fewer laughs than slabs of bacon in a vegan restaurant kitchen, Simmons did prove up to the task in the instances »

Our sister site Variety reported on the E! series earlier this week, and now multiple reports confirm the presumed subject matter.

Performer of the Week: Kerry Washington
13 hours ago
A weekly feature in which we spotlight shining stars
The Performer | Kerry Washington
The Show | Scandal
The Episode | “Run”
The Airdate | January 29, 2015
The Performance | Even when grabbed from her home and (seemingly) whisked off to a dingy destination unknown, Olivia Pope has it handled. On-screen for nearly the entirety of the midseason premiere’s 43 minutes, Washington walked the fine line between fierce fixer and Marvel-caliber hero, as Liv slowly took stock of her environs and abductors, never acting too hastily and, for better or worse, never superhumanly seeing too many steps ahead.
Even when Olivia taunted Otto about his obvious No. »

Pilots: CBS Adds David Shore/Bryan Cranston Drama, James Patterson Riff
30 January 2015 8:15 PM, PST
CBS on Friday night ordered another two drama pilots, each with interesting pedigrees.
Having already made a production commitment to the project, CBS officially greenlit a pilot for Sneaky Pete, which is being written and exec-produced by House creator David Shore and Breaking Bad Emmy winner Bryan Cranston.
The series follows a thirtysomething con man who upon leaving prison assumes the identity of a cellmate and then hides from debtors by toiling for his “new” family’s bail bond business.

Ground Floor is taking the stairway to heaven.
TBS has cancelled Bill Lawrence’s underrated workplace sitcom, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The show’s Feb. 10 Season 2 closer will now serve as its series finale.
Interestingly, Ground Floor — which stars Skylar Astin and Briga Heelan — opened its sophomore run in December with 1.4 million total viewers and a 0.6 demo rating, and at last count pulled 1.7 mil/0.7 (leading into Cougar Town’s 1 mil/0.5).

And although the exes initially resisted temptation, instead opting to pass the time with flirty conversation, they eventually caved, going »
