Crashing's Pete Holmes Talks Season 2 Returns, Starts a Beef With Iron Man

40 minutes ago

HBO’s Crashing may tell a fictionalized version of comedian Pete Holmes‘ life, but that doesn’t mean everything that happens in the series is firmly grounded in reality.

For example: Holmes tells TVLine that filming a scene from the comedy’s upcoming second season felt very much like something out of a classic ’80s sci-fi film.  “[There] was this big elaborate rig, and it was like 1 in the morning, and I’m riding around the streets of Chelsea on this bike, and it was very E.T.,” he says.

1 hour ago

Want more Shorty? Well, you’re getting it.

Epix has renewed its Get Shorty reboot for a second season, TVLine has learned.

(Hollywood can be just as savage as the mob, though.)

Game of Thrones Season Finale Photos: White Walker Enemies, Assemble!

3 hours ago

The dragon and the wolf, as well as a few lions, appear to gather in this week’s Game of Thrones. But will the summit change any hearts and/or minds re: the undead hordes bearing down on Westeros?

Hard to say. Some these recently released photos from Sunday’s super-sized Season 7 finale (HBO, 9/8c)  show several of the key players — including Jon, Tyrion, Jaime and Cersei — apparently in the same place at the same time. This is likely because Jon has hauled the wight he and his men bagged in last week’s episode all the way to King »

Fox & Friends Segment Interrupted by Protestor: 'This Is Fake News' — Watch

Wednesday’s edition of Fox & Friends was definitely foxier than it was friendly.

VideosAmerican Horror Story: Cult‘s Title Sequence Features Trump and Hillary

Fox News correspondent John Piro was in Louisville, Ky., for a segment titled “Breakfast in the Bluegrass State,” but instead of the pancakes he was supposed to be enjoying with the patrons of Christi’s Café, Piro was instead served up a generous helping of drama.

“You’ve got a Democrat right here!” an unidentified protestor announced, suddenly stepping forward to display a homemade “Fox Lies” sign. “This is fake news!”

Is The Opposition With Jordan Klepper Lampooning Alex Jones? Watch Teaser

4 hours ago

Jordan Klepper launches into full-on conspiracy theorist mode in the first promo for Comedy Central’s The Opposition (premiering Monday, Sept. 25 at 11:30/10:30c).

RelatedBroad City Gets New, Later Season 4 Premiere Date at Comedy Central

The less-than-a-minute tease features the Daily Show correspondent in front of a giant screen, on a mission to impeach Donald Trump Hillary Clinton and convince viewers that the country of China isn’t even real. This behavior falls right in line with the basic cabler’s official logline, which promises a late-night series that satirizes the “hyperbolic, conspiracy-laden noise machine that is the alternative-media landscape. »

Disjointed Review: Don't Puff Puff, Just Pass on Netflix's Half-Baked Sitcom

7 hours ago

You know how they say smoking marijuana can make anything funny? Well, whoever said that never watched Netflix’s appallingly bad new weed-com Disjointed. Because it would take a tractor-trailer full of ganja to make this mess tolerable.

You might have seen that Disjointed (debuting this Friday) stars the great Kathy Bates and airs on Netflix, and assumed that it must be innovative in some way. But don’t be fooled: This is basically a lame CBS sitcom dressed up in hip, streaming-service clothing. Chuck Lorre (of Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory fame) is an executive producer here, »

Emmys 2017 Poll: Who Should Win for Lead Actress, Limited Series/Movie?

8 hours ago

Real talk: Can we just give all six of these women an award at this year’s Emmys and be done with it? Because choosing just one winner feels like an impossible task.

The 2017 nominees for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie include four (!) Oscar winners, all of whom would cruise to victory in a less competitive year. Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon both earned nods for HBO’s rich-moms drama Big Little Lies, with Kidman holding a tiny edge for her heartbreaking work as abused wife Celeste.

Espn Pulls Robert Lee From Virginia Game, Due to Asian Announcer's Name

9 hours ago

Asian sports announcer Robert Lee — not to be confused with Confederate General Robert E. Lee, who died in 1870 — will no longer call the University of Virginia’s first college football game of the season, Espn has announced.

The decision to remove Lee from the broadcast comes after white nationalist rallies were held on the UVa campus earlier this month protesting the city’s plan to remove a statue of the controversial historical figure of the same name. Those protests eventually turned violent, culminating in a domestic terrorist attack during which a man rammed his car into a group of demonstrators, »

Lucifer Bosses Talk Up 'Leftover' Standalone Episodes (Maze as 007?!), How They'll Fit Into Season 3

20 hours ago

Lucifer fans need not worry about May’s cliffhanger ending not being addressed as soon as Season 3 arrives on Monday, Oct. 2 at 8/7c.

Back in March, it was announced that Season 2 of the Fox drama would run only 18 episodes, and that the final four to be filmed would get added onto this fall’s run. That news A) bummed out fans who already were enduring a prolonged springtime hiatus, and 2) raised some concern about how the episodes, previously reported to be standalone in nature, would fit into Season 3.

For example, some fretted that the aforementioned cliffhanger — in which Lucifer (played »

The story follows Oxford student Diana Bishop (Palmer), a descendant of the witches of Salem who becomes romantically involved with Matthew, a 1,500-year-old vampire.

Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams Channel Ned Stark in New Carpool Karaoke Video

22 August 2017 1:52 PM, PDT

“Do you remember when we used to read normal sentences, but like Sean Bean, like Ned Stark?” Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams asks her bestie/co-star Sophie Turner at the top of this Carpool Karaoke clip. And then things go rapidly, entertainingly downhill.

The video above, part of the Carpool episode available on Apple Music tonight, finds the Stark sister actresses running through “Hakuna Matata” from The Lion King and Six Mix A Lot’s “Baby Got Back” in the voice of the late, lamented Hand of the King. It gets weird. They get silly. There’s a Super Mario Bros. reference. »

Summer TV Winners & Losers: From Mighty Game of Thrones and Defenders to a Doubly Dissed Shakespeare

22 August 2017 12:44 PM, PDT

As summer enters its final weeks, it’s time to take stock of what burned hottest on the small screen and what plain ol’ flamed out. TV’s “winners” and “losers,” if you will.

Keep in mind that it’s hard for returning series to break from the summertime pack, short of experiencing a steep creative or ratings shift (in either direction). And there are instances where, say, Big Brother‘s winning ratings story is offset by a  snooze of a season. Not everyone gets a trophy.

That said, shows such as Game of Thrones, Twin Peaks, Glow and The Carmichael Show »

22 August 2017 11:55 AM, PDT
