‘Kevin Can Wait’ Spent Less Than One Minute Mourning Erinn Hayes’ Character in Season 2 Premiere

12 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Erinn Hayes’ last episode of “Kevin Can Wait” was not only shared with her Season 2 replacement, Leah Remini, but it was titled “Sting of Queens” — as if the creators’ long con to swap out Kevin James’ wives was already underway.

The series got such a bad rap after announcing it was letting Hayes go, viewers might have expected them to deal with her character’s departure with grace and respect. After all, even fans who weren’t overwhelmed by the news would need a good reason to forget about a woman they spent 24 episodes getting to know during Season 1.

Instead, in the blunt tradition of CBS sitcoms — which tackle off-camera issues with the subtlety of a piano being dropped on Charlie Sheen — the “Kevin Can Wait” Season 2 premiere spent less than »

Several writers have resigned from the influential movie site Ain't It Cool News (AICN) after a woman came forward to accuse that site's 45-year-old founder, Harry Knowles, of having sexually assaulted her nearly two decades ago.

In a statement posted Monday to Twitter, Steve Prokopy, a Chicago-based writer who signs his reviews "Capone," called the choice to leave the site "a remarkably easy decision to make."

"I sincerely hope that the women impacted by any of these incidents have received all the support and strength they need to recover and heal," Prokopy said.

‘The Opposition’: Jordan Klepper’s InfoWars Spoof is Already in Danger of Becoming One-Note

1 hour ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Usually, it’s a bit unrealistic to piece together what a comedy show is after only one episode. Especially in the world of late night, each successive half-hour brings host, writers, and assorted crew alike a chance to really drill down on a show’s strengths.

But “The Opposition,” the latest 11:30 slot-holder on Comedy Central, took its first episode as a chance to deliver what seemed like an effective mission statement for what this conspiracy-adjacent satire would be going forward. Not only did host Jordan Klepper take the opportunity to define some of the edges of this particular brand of late-night blowhard, he introduced the various members of his staff and doubled down on the logical loopholes that will theoretically provide most of the laughs as the show progresses.

In doing so, the show might not be the show at its funniest, but it did indirectly touch on the »

Star Trek: Discovery is the latest TV show in the Star Trek franchise. It is a prequel to the first Star Trek TV show, with the result that it is supposed to be centered around the cold war between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingons. Unlike its counterparts, Star Trek: Discovery is not centered around a captain but rather a first officer of a starship in the form of Michael Burnham, who is a human orphaned by Klingons and then raised by Vulcans. Something that turned out to have immediate consequences for the narrative of the TV show

‘Kevin Can Wait’: Former Star Erinn Hayes is Liking Tweets Grieving Her Dead Character

1 hour ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It’s never easy to lose a job, especially a nice sitcom gig, but when Erinn Hayes was let go from “Kevin Can Wait” at the end of Season 1, she handled it with relative grace on Twitter:

True, I've been let go from the show. Very sad, I had a great experience season 1. Thank you for all the support from our wonderful fans. https://t.co/HfYKzVuSnT

— erinn hayes (@hayeslady) June 3, 2017

Since then, especially following the reveal that the character of Donna would be killed off to make way for the re-introduction of Leah Remini, Hayes has been relatively quiet about “Kevin Can Wait” in every way except one: Her use of the “like” button.

Like many people on Twitter, Hayes’s feed these days is largely dominated by political discussion and imploring followers to help disaster victims. But over the last 24 hours, she’s also been actively liking Tweets »

Gilmore Girls fans worried that Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino’s new multi-year Amazon Studios deal all but sticks a fork in a second Netflix revival need to simmer down and read the contract’s fine print.

According to multiple sources, the pact — which calls for Team Palladino to develop new series for Amazon beyond their upcoming dramedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel — includes an “out” clause that would allow the pair to spearhead a follow-up to last year’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life for Netflix.

Fans of the hit TV series “24” are probably already watching “Designated Survivor” on ABC ever since the first episode on September 21, 2016. The star of “24” is also starring in Designated Survivor and, although he’s not playing Jack Bauer this time around; the very talented Kiefer Sutherland is playing the President of the United States. Ok, he wasn’t exactly voted into office and may have seemed somewhat ill-equipped to handle it in the beginning but not for long. He has really shown his true colors and how good he can be at being the Potus throughout the first
