With ‘Mom,’ Chuck Lorre Finally Earned His Stripes as One of TV’s Top Auteurs

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

Comedy mastermind Chuck Lorre was an auteur all along. It just took “Mom” to make you realize it.

The CBS comedy, starring Allison Janney and Anna Faris as a mother and daughter both in recovery, is by far the most personal of Lorre’s career. The creator behind shows such as “Grace Under Fire,” “Dharma & Greg,” “Two and a Half Men” and “The Big Bang Theory” has been open about his own path to sobriety, a topic that is central to “Mom.”

“Broken people trying to repair their lives, I can relate to that,” Lorre recently told IndieWire. “I know a lot of people that can relate to the comedy in the repair business of a person’s life. I think we’re all in the process of doing a little mending.”

Lorre is still best known for “Two and a Half Men” and “The Big Bang Theory,” two megahits »

Norman Lear: ‘I View Donald Trump as the Middle Finger of the American Right Hand’

10 June 2016 10:53 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Norman Lear has been breaking boundaries for decades, and he’s still not afraid to speak his mind.

The television icon — who created “All in the Family,” “The Jeffersons” and “One Day At A Time,” among other prolific series — spoke about the state of family sitcoms on Friday at the Atx Television Festival in Austin, Texas. And he got in a few words about Donald Trump.

When asked about creating topical television, Lear noted how times were different with the original “One Day At A Time,” which was shot on a weekly basis when it aired in the 1970’s and ’80s. Now, Lear is gearing up for his reboot of the show on Netflix, which will shoot the entire first season in advance of the premiere.

“We’re making all 13 [episodes] before the first one airs. That’s a brand new experience,” Lear said, speaking on a panel, moderated by Variety‘s Debra Birnbaum. “We won’t learn whatever it is that we learned from a live, national audience.”

Despite the new production schedule, Lear says that the show — which is centered around a Cuban-American family — will still be topical.

“Topical, for me, is the juice of life. It’s always topical…nothing’s changed,” he said. “I’m learning a great deal as we go on, too, so it’s great. It’s everyday problems…that were as much true 40 years ago as they are today. We don’t change.”

Panelist Nahnatchka Khan of “Fresh Off the Boat” chimed in, agreeing that her show’s production schedule does not allow for as much topical content as some other series.

“‘South Park’ is amazing with how timely they’re able to be,” she said. “But they work around the close for weeks at a time and months at a time.”

The entire panel, including David Windsor of “The Real O’Neals,” Phil Rosenthal of “Everybody Loves Raymond” and Hollis Rich of “State of Grace,” all agreed that despite the learning curve of streaming TV, the new fall television season will include storylines that parallel this year’s election — especially the Republican nominee.

“I view Donald Trump as the middle finger of the American right hand,” Lear quipped.

How 'Black-ish,' 'Transparent' and More Comedy Series Tackle Racism: "We Just Can't Run From Having These Conversations"

9 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Every couple of decades, sitcoms get serious. Back in the 1970s, race relations became a primetime topic on All in the Family, and Bea Arthur had TV's first abortion in an episode of Maude. During the '90s, Murphy Brown helped make single motherhood a front-page issue. Now, in 2016, it's happening again, with such super-topical issues as police shootings, gay marriage, xenophobia and transgender bathroom politics being played for laughs (mostly) on broadcast and streaming comedies. When ABC's Black-ish aired an episode in which the Johnson children asked their parents about the police shootings in Ferguson, Mo.,

Chuck Lorre on Why ‘Mom’ Is His Hardest But Most Rewarding Job

8 June 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Chuck Lorre has been writing and producing comedy for TV for over 25 years, from his days on “Roseanne,” “Grace Under Fire” and “Cybill” through today, when he helms “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mom” as part of his overall deal with Warner Bros. TV. Here he talks about why he relies on the multicam format, what he’s learned from producing legend Norman Lear, and why he calls “Mom” the hardest but most rewarding job he’s ever had.

You’ve had an impressive string of successes. What’s your secret?

I really believe that the foundation of a good show is characters, and the jokes come second. If you don’t care about the people, it doesn’t really matter what’s on the page. Situation comedy is a misnomer. I think for a long time, the situation has just been life. It doesn’t start with a contrived situation or a joke. »

Tracee Ellis Ross, Courtney B. Vance on Intensity of Working in TV, Addressing Race in Shows

7 June 2016 9:55 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tracee Ellis Ross and Courtney B. Vance sat down for a chat for Variety and PBS’ “Actors on Actors.” For more “Actors on Actors, click here.

Tracee Ellis Ross: There’s a thing you bring to Johnnie Cochran that obviously is your craft, but how much of it is your point of view? How much of it is the research you did or didn’t do?

Courtney B. Vance: I knew once we started shooting we were going to be doing three and four episodes at the same time. They were going to be flying, and I would have no time to do any kind of homework. And I said, “I’m not going to worry about what other people think.” I turned that sound off.

Bryce Duffy for Variety

Ross: In the courtroom scenes, was there a lot of letting those moments run free?

Vance: We were in the zone. »

Norman Lear and Chuck Lorre on Censorship, Live Audiences — and Donald Trump

3 June 2016 6:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Writers Guild Theater welcomed Norman Lear and Chuck Lorre for a panel discussion Thursday night, where the legendary TV writers covered censorship issues, taping in front of live audiences, casting triumphs and even Donald Trump.

“Every minute is another beginning,” said Lear–known for iconic comedies like “All in the Family,” “Good Times,” “One Day at a Time” and “The Jeffersons”–when asked to reflect on his illustrious TV career.

“Wherever you find human beings, you’ll find frailty and laughter,” Lear added, citing “the foolishness of the human condition” as a key influence in his writing.

The storied producers also dissected the evolution of TV, namely comedies’ deviation from the sitcom genre.

“Comedy wasn’t predicated on contrived situations. Even the word sitcom fell apart when he began to work,” Lorre said of Lear’s impact on the industry. “There was no more ‘sit’ in the ‘com,’ it »

Norman Lear Slams Donald Trump: 'He Is Archie Bunker - Can We All Seriously Agree This Is Bad for America?'

3 June 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Norman Lear created the Archie Bunker on the iconic '70s sitcom All in the Family, but he's not laughing at the similarities he sees between the lovable bigot and presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. "He is Archie Bunker," the legendary producer said Thursday during a Writers Guild event, Deadline reports. "I think of Donald Trump as the middle finger of the American right hand." Lear, 93, then asked the audience: "Why is this happening? Whether you're a Republican or a Democrat, can we all seriously agree this is bad for America?"The longtime producer went on to give his opinion on why Trump, »

From Must-See TV to Peak TV: 20 Years of covering television

2 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you were a TV critic from 1956 to 1976, you would have witnessed some big changes in the business: the rise and fall of the Western as the dominant primetime genre, or the color TV boom, or CBS' shift from silly rural comedies to socially conscious ones like All in the Family and M*A*S*H. If you covered the beat from 1976 to 1996, you would have written about Hill Street Blues and its many imitators, the classic years of SNL, and the early days of original cable programming. Almost any 20-year span would give you a front row seat to enormous artistic and technological change. As of this week, I've been professionally writing about television for exactly 20 years(*), and it's safe to say that the only two-decade period that featured a more radical transformation in how television was made and consumed would be back when the medium was first introduced into America's living rooms. »

Michael Dann, CBS Programming Chief in 1960s, Dies at 94

31 May 2016 6:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Michael Dann, the longtime CBS executive who steered the network’s winning primetime strategy in the 1960s with hokey and hip shows ranging from “The Beverly Hillbillies” to “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour,” has died. He was 94.

Dann died May 27 at his home in Boca Raton, Fla., according to the New York Times.

Dann held the role of CBS programming chief from 1963 until 1970, when he was replaced by his protege, Fred Silverman. Hits delivered on Dann’s watch included “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “The Carol Burnett Show,” “Mission: Impossible,” “Hawaii Five-0,” “Mannix” and the venerable “60 Minutes.”

Dann’s long run at CBS was credited in part to his “uncanny ability to gauge (CBS chief) William Paley’s probable reaction to most program ideas,” according to the Museum of Broadcast Communications. Dann brought the Smothers Brothers to CBS, but then battled with the brothers and producers over the show’s liberal political bent. »

Supernatural concludes its most consistently strong season for a while with a finale that's still capable of surprising fans...

This review contains spoilers.

11.23 Alpha And Omega

With a Road So Far and a Carry On My Wayward Son, we’re at the eleventh season finale of Supernatural. Amara has shaken off the attack from the angels, demons and witches, ripped Lucifer from Cas’ body and mortally wounded Chuck. And yet God dying isn’t the only problem that the Winchesters must face. Amara, by slowly killing God, is killing the Sun and bringing literal darkness to the planet as the dark/light balance she and her brother represent is thrown out of whack. The solution appears to be killing Amara and the gang come up with a plan to convert Dean into a bomb, harnessing the power of souls to blast Amara away.

TV Review: ‘Roots’

24 May 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In this age of niche networks and splintered audiences, there’s no controversy in noting that the updated version of the iconic “Roots” miniseries, simulcast May 30 on History, A&E, and Lifetime, is unlikely get the huge audience garnered by the original that aired on ABC nearly 40 years ago. Yet this new take on the saga should be viewed by as wide an audience as possible, from families to school kids to viewers interested in important chapters of the American saga. The lessons the new “Roots” teaches over the course of its eight hours, which air on four consecutive nights, are worth revisiting, and a number of outstanding performances enliven this retelling of the story of Kunta Kinte and his descendants.

The word “lessons” in the previous sentence is used advisedly. This miniseries shares the same impulse to instruct and enlighten that was a hallmark of the original, which was »

The Winchester brothers assemble a motley crew of Darkness fighters with God on their side in Supernatural's latest episode...

This review contains spoilers.

11.22 We Happy Few

First of all, let me apologise for the slight mix-up in last week’s review as I misread my episode list and thought we were on the penultimate episode. But it wasn’t and now this is the penultimate episode so hooray for slightly more Supernatural!

It means we’ve got a bit more time for the Winchesters to rally the troops, but the trouble is, all of the troops have various familial relations that aren’t exactly on the best of terms. The brothers first have to get Lucifer and Chuck back on the same side and from there, it’s a case of assembling their ragtag bunch of merry men, including angels, Crowley and Rowena to band together to stop Amara. »
