13 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Netflix has announced that the final six episodes of "The Killing" will be available for streaming beginning on August 1st. Cancelled by AMC after just two seasons, Netflix negotiated the show's revival by teaming up with the cable network to bring it back for a third season in what Variety refers to as a "shared-window pact." Following the third season, AMC cancelled the show once again. This time, however, Netflix negotiated its own deal with Fox Television Studios for a fourth season. Veena Sud, who helmed "The Killing" when it first aired, has returned to the position of showrunner for its final season.

'Parks and Recreation': Exec producer Michael Schur on the finale's shocking last scene, that surprise cameo, and the future

3 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

[Spoiler Alert: Do not read this story until you have watched "Moving Up," the season 6 finale of Parks and Recreation, which aired tonight.]

Leslie journeyed all the way to San Francisco in the season finale of Parks and Recreation, but she left her heart in Pawnee. And so the city’s unofficial head cheerleader devised a way to snag her dream job running a regional branch of the National Parks Service but remain in her dream town by strong-arming and binder-ing her boss into moving the office from Chicago to Pawnee. In the boffo hourlong episode, Tom’s Bistro pulled off a successful early opening (well, the second time around), the Unity Concert was a crowd-pleaser, the rights to The Cones of Dunshire were rightfully returned to Ben, »

'Reign' recap: Brrr, it's cold in here

4 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Another week of Reign, another week that I’m incredibly grateful that I’m a twenty-something who lives in 2014 and doesn’t have to worry about an entire country when picking out a male suitor. And notice I said “suitor” and not “husband,” because like I said, it’s 2014 people, and I love it! You know what else I love? Watching a television show about 15 year olds who have to marry each other and balance falling in love with having children, civic duty, protecting a nation and so much more. So before I go on another rant of sorts, let »

Seth Meyers to host Emmys: EW's poll says...

4 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Who will host the Emmys this year? Why NBC’s newest late-night star, of course. Seth Meyers will host the 66th annual awards telecast this fall when it airs on NBC.

Seth’s expertise and ease in front of a live audience during his time at SNL, as well as his comedic brilliance both as a writer and in front of the camera on SNL and Late Night, makes him the perfect choice to host the Emmys,” said Paul Telegdy, president, late night, NBC Entertainment.

In addition, veteran TV producer Don Mischer was announced Thursday as executive producer of the Emmy telecast. »

ABC's 'Black Box': The craziest, least-crazy show on TV

5 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Oh boy. Guys, I do not know what to do with Black Box, ABC’s new medical drama. (Yes, the show is about neither airplanes nor experimental theater; yes, its protagonist’s last name is “Black”; yes, this is a titling convention that must be stopped immediately.)

When its logical left brain is in control, Black Box is an utterly conventional, thoroughly dull entry in the over-saturated “Insufferable Genius” genre. But when the show’s crazy right brain takes over, it’s a jaw-dropping, over-the-top campfest with true potential to fill the Smash-sized hole in your (read: my) heart.

Neither version is good, »

Seth Meyers to Host 2014 Emmy Awards

5 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Seth Meyers has been tapped to host NBC’s telecast of the Primetime Emmy Awards on Aug. 25.

NBC and the Television Academy have also set kudocast vet Don Mischer as exec producer of the live broadcast originating from downtown L.A.‘s Nokia Theatre.

There was little doubt that the host of this year’s Emmycast would come from NBC’s latenight ranks, given all the changes that NBC implemented this year.

Peacock execs likely concluded that Meyers would get more of a boost from the Emmycast showcase than Fallon, who has been on a strong ratings roll since he took the helm of “The Tonight Show” from Jay Leno in February.

Fallon benefited from the Emmy spotlight when he hosted in 2010, about 18 months after he replaced Conan O’Brien on “Late Night.”

Meyers’ long run at “Saturday Night Live” makes him perfectly suited for awards-show duty. He also hosted »

'American Idol' 2014: And the Top 5 are...

6 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

For the first time, the contestants got to sing two solo songs Wednesday night, one country and one rock ‘n roll. With too many guitars and not enough personality, the final six continued to make similar mistakes from week’s past. And now that mistake may prove fatal as one more singer was unplugged for good.

Warning! Spoilers ahead about tonight’s elimination!

C.J. Harris (far right) is the next Idol saying goodbye. Jessica Meuse and Harris, both natives of Alabama were the bottom two.

That leaves Caleb, Jena, Sam, Alex and Jessica in the top 5. Next week’s theme »

'Parks and Recreation' finale ending: What did you think?

7 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

[Spoiler Alert: Do not read this story until you have watched tonight's season finale of Parks and Recreation.]

So… that happened. Or will happen three years from now.

Parks and Recreation concluded its sixth season in grand style, with a monster concert that unified two towns, a final decision from Leslie on the National Parks Service job… but with a twist (as in she twisted Grant’s arm into letting her move the regional office to Pawnee), and a shocking jump three years into the future, where we saw Jon Hamm pop up as the world’s worst National Parks employee (Yes, worse than Jerry. Er, Larry. Um, Terry) and those not-yet-born triplets were already little people.

SAG-aftra Working On Wide-Ranging Report About Casting Diversity

7 hours ago | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

SAG-aftra is working on what will be the first truly comprehensive picture of the employment landscape for women and minority actors and hopes to release it within a year. SAG used to release the reports annually, then in 2004 it started issuing them every other year. After 2009, it stopped releasing the reports altogether. The problem was that AFTRA never released comprehensive casting reports on actors employed under its jurisdiction – which included daytime soaps and some primetime and basic cable shows, and new pilots – so the employment picture SAG presented was never really complete. And in the years leading up to their 2012 merger, AFTRA launched a concerted campaign to sign more pilots and cable shows to its contract by offering more favorable terms than SAG’s – a move that sparked a bitter feud between the two unions.
