‘Family Guy’ Comic-Con Panel Pays Tribute to Adam West and Carrie Fisher; Here’s Who Will Replace Her as Peter Griffin’s Boss

The casting was announced by executive producer Rich Appel during “Family Guy’s” San Diego Comic-Con panel on Saturday. The always raucous panel started off on a somber note, as creator Seth MacFarlane and the show’s cast and producers offered their memories of Fisher and Adam West, who played the mayor of Quahog.
MacFarlane remembered West as someone who “had boundless energy and instantly put everyone in a good mood… The man gave 150 percent right up to the end, »

‘Legion’ Might Bring In Professor X
I will admit, ashamed as I am, to not yet having finished watching the first season of FX’s “Legion.” While the series pilot was truly one of the best episodes of television to air this year, subsequent episodes disappointed in their stricter adherence to traditional superhero show conventions. I bailed on the show fairly early.
I’ve been assured that in later episodes the show returns to the experimental short-film aesthetic of the pilot, and have been planning to catch myself up on the series at some point down the line.

Patton Oswalt Tapped to Replace Bobby Moynihan as Lead Voice on SyFy’s ‘Happy!’
Patton Oswalt is set to replace “Saturday Night Live” veteran Bobby Moynihan as the lead voice in SyFy’s new series “Happy!,” coming out later this year. Oswalt will lend his pipes to the title character, a blue flying horse that is a positive influence on Nick Sax, played by Christopher Meloni. Sax is a grizzled ex-cop (sound familiar?) that’s now a boozing hitman in need of direction. They’ll work together in a classic odd-couple match-up to save an abducted young girl named Hailey. Moynihan had originally been cast as Happy and had voiced the character in the show’s pilot. »

The stars of Comedy Central’s cult comedy dropped by TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite over the weekend and were positively euphoric when discussing the series’ Aug. 23 premiere, a long-delayed, Sliding Doors-esque half-hour that turns back the clock six years to reveal how their fictional character’s met. “We wrote it as the finale of the first season, but [exec producer] Amy Poehler said, ‘Don’t do it. It’s too early,'” Glazer revealed to me. »
Riverdale Video: The Cast Gets Touchy-Feely Talking Hot Dads and 'Bughead'
The cast of Riverdale is clearly very comfortable putting their hands on each other. (Hey, if you looked like them, wouldn’t you be, too?)
It was a touchy-feely love fest when the stars of The CW’s teen soap dropped by TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite: Cole Sprouse (Jughead) and Lili Reinhart (Betty) stroked each other’s arms from opposite sides of the couch. (Fast-forward to 8:05 for the good stuff, “Bughead” fans.) Madelaine Petsch (Cheryl) affectionately rubbed the shoulders of Casey Cott (Kevin). And K.J. Apa (Archie) and Camila Mendes (Veronica) even acted out their “steamy” Season 2 sex scene… »

Also bidding adieu to Twelve were his co-stars Pearl Mackie who plays companion Bill, Matt Lucas who plays assistant Nardole, Michelle Gomez who plays Missy, writer Mark Gatiss and showrunner Steven Moffat.
Capaldi isn’t the only one who’s leaving. Moffat will be passing the mantle to “Broadchurch” showrunner Chris Chibnall, and judging by what happened in the finale, Gomez is hanging up her Time Lord duds as well. Update: Sadly, Mackie also »
