Jake Johnson Reveals How He Helped Save New Girl From Cancellation

2 hours ago

Jake Johnson really did not want New Girl to end with last season’s Nick-Jess elevator smooch. So when series creator Liz Meriwether invited the cast to reach out directly to Fox co-chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman to plead their case for a final, abbreviated seventh season, he jumped at the chance.

“I was one of [cast members] that wrote them and asked for more,” Johnson tells TVLine, before recounting the specific appeal he made to Walden and Newman. “I said, ‘I don’t think you gave us enough time to finish the show the right way. And I would really »

Once Upon a Time's Season 7 Reboot: What's Working, What Isn't

4 hours ago

Eight episodes into Once Upon a Time‘s ambitious Season 7 — and with the midseason finale arriving on Dec. 15 — TVLine decided it was time to take stock of what’s working with the “requel”… and what has thus far been less-than-magical.

Season 7 got off to an admittedly bumpy start, depositing us as it did in a new world filled with largely new faces, while even the familiar ones weren’t quite (yet) the characters we had come to know and love. The Rumbelle-centric hour (and its big reveals), coupled with an Emma/Hook catch-up (which eased many concerns while also birthing »

How Did Supergirl Ship Stay Hidden? Is This Is Us' Toby Too Much? Does iPad Kid Irk? Best Med Couple? And More Qs

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Curb Your Enthusiasm, Supergirl, Chicago Med and Criminal Minds!

1 | To echo many a Once Upon a Time fan: How can Wish Hook have flashbacks to a time before the original Dark Curse, seeing as we were told the Wish Realm didn’t “exist” until Emma wished for it (in 6×10)? Speaking of the alt-pirate, does “awake” Rumple in Hyperion Heights know that Rogers isn’t the real Hook? (Or might that be made clear »

10 hours ago

Mystery Science Theater 3000 acolytes had reason to be extra grateful this Thanksgiving: Netflix on Thursday renewed the rebooted revived cult fave for a second season (or 12th season, if you’re thinking cumulatively). 

The streamer made the announcement (which you can watch above) at the conclusion of the annual holiday marathon on YouTube. While there’s no specific timetable for the release of the new episodes, Netflix teased that the show  — featuring hosts Joel Hodgson, Jonah Ray and Felicia Day — would return “in the not-too-distant-future.”

The Riverdale Cast on Jingle-Jangle, the Party Drug With the Silly Name

11 hours ago

There’s a new street drug sweeping through Riverdale… and its side effects may include uncontrollable giggling when you hear its name said aloud.

In Season 2, the CW’s teen drama has not only introduced a roving serial killer, but also an illicit party drug known as “jingle-jangle”: a white powder served in Pixy Stix-like straws that delivers an energetic, euphoric high to its users. It’s the drug of choice among Riverdale’s rebellious youth this season — and its name has led to quite a few stifled laughs among the cast.

Grey's Anatomy Stars Defend 'Jaggie,' Hint at a 'Real Hard Left Turn' Coming

If anyone is going to have a harder time than the audience accepting the pairing of Grey’s Anatomy stepsiblings Jackson and Maggie, it’s her father, Richard. How will he react when he finds out about their growing interest in one another? “I’m trying not to think about that!” portrayer James Pickens Jr. told TVLine at the ABC drama’s recent 300th-episode celebration. “Leave it to Shonda [Rhimes, the series’ creator].

Arrow Recap: Cayden James' Beef Is Revealed, Plus William Meets [Spoiler]

23 hours ago

Arrow‘s Thanksgiving-themed episode on Thursday was stuffed with dramatic developments — including the reveal of a Big Bad’s true beef and the return of a smiling face.

The holiday started off lovely enough for Oliver & Co., as he segued from a successful food drive to the unveiling of the (very quickly constructed) new police precinct. It was during the latter ceremony, though, where FBI Agent Watson showed up to arrest the mayor, in front of his son and the public, on charges related to his (alleged!) activities as the Green Arrow.

Supernatural Recap: [Spoiler] Returns — and Forms a Shocking Alliance

23 November 2017 6:00 PM, PST

Supernatural‘s Dean and Sam got a most unwelcome surprise this Thursday, in the form of the return of an old, “dead” foe, the British Men of Letters’ Mr. Ketch. (Mary did shoot him in the head, but this is Supernatural, so silly them — and me — for thinking he was gone.)

Glow's Betty Gilpin Prepares For Wrestling Dramedy's Season 2: 'I Feel Like My Soul Was in a Five-Car Pileup'

23 November 2017 1:32 PM, PST

The thing about being one of the leads in a 1980s-set dramedy about lady wrestlers is, your look is still stuck in the Reagan era even after the cameras stop rolling for the day.

“I’m looking at my gel French manicure now, and that, combined with my spray tan, every public place I walk into, I want to clink a glass, like, ‘Ding, ding, ding’ and announce that this is for a character and not from my personal choice,” Glow‘s Betty Gilpin says, chuckling.

Arrow Stars Preview Oliver's Derailed Thanksgiving, Cayden James' Revenge

23 November 2017 11:00 AM, PST

Thanksgiving, you have failed Oliver Queen.

During this Thursday’s Arrow (The CW, 9/8c), Oliver’s Turkey Day celebration with his son William and girlfriend Felicity goes like “every other holiday or moment that should be fun, which is to say that it goes to s–t almost immediately. Like, in Act One,” star Stephen Amell previewed during TVLine’s set visit. But there is a silver lining to all the drama: “It ends on a relatively happy note,” the actor added.

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade 2017: Awkward Turkeys, Sexy Santa and More

23 November 2017 9:16 AM, PST

The 91st Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade went down Thursday morning with giant balloons, familiar faces and more lip syncing than a Britney Spears concert.

And although it was light on drama this year — #neverforget the great Savannah Guthrie/Miss Piggy feud of 2016 — we still found plenty to discuss. Like when Al Roker asked Colin Donnell about his show, Chicago Ed. Or when Girl Meets World‘s Sabrina Carpenter got upstaged by the Pillsbury Doughboy. (Ok, maybe there was some drama, after all.)

23 November 2017 7:33 AM, PST

Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t… not sing?

NBC on Thursday released the first extended look at its music-themed midseason drama Rise and it has Friday Night Lights boss Jason Katims’ literal and figurative fingerprints all over it. Created by Katims, Rise tells the story of a high school teacher (How I Met Your Mother‘s Josh Radnor) in a working-class town who “sheds his own self-doubt and takes over the school’s lackluster theater department.”

Friends Thanksgiving Quiz: How Well Do You Remember the Holiday Episodes?

23 November 2017 6:54 AM, PST

Holidays can be a joyous time with family — or a wonderful time to catch up with Friends.

The classic sitcom made Thanksgiving an annual tradition — except for that one year it was too busy with Ross, Rachel and the world’s most unnecessary pros-and-cons list (Julie, really?!) — leaving millions of viewers to anticipate how the Central Perk Six would celebrate the gluttonous occasion. Whether the holiday was marked by the disappearance of a certain Macy’s Parade staple, or the arrival of A-list guest stars like Brad Pitt and Christina Applegate, you knew to expect something out of the ordinary. »
