Big changes are coming to NBC next fall, including a radical remaking of its Thursday night lineup. As part of a new fall schedule just announced, the Peacock network will shift Parks and Recreation to the 8 p.m. lead-off slot Thursday, delay the return of Community, add three new sitcoms (including The Michael J. Fox Show) and relocate Parenthood to the 10 p.m. timeslot which once housed E.R. and L.A. Law. In another big move, Revolution will give up its cushy slot following The Voice and air Wednesdays at 8, with the buzzy James Spader drama The Blacklist inheriting the 10 p.m. Monday slot. Overall, NBC is changing at least one hour every night of the week (except Sundays in the fall, which will remain devoted to football), with a new show (or newly relocated show) airing at 10 p.m. every weeknight. NBC is also saving some big guns until »

There’s a lot of talk these days about the increased visibility of queer folk on TV. And while this is certainly true, there is one woman who repped lady love on mainstream TV way back when, back before any state had marriage equality, before Glee was even a glimmer in Ryan Murphy’s eye, even before Ilene Chaiken.
And that woman is Roseanne, y’all.
Gayer shows and characters may have come our way since Roseanne went off the air in 1997, but no one has covered both feminism and queerness in such blue collar realness since, and I worry no one else ever will. Lest we ever forget its greatness, here are my Top 5 Lesbian Moments of Roseanne

While we all know that Roseanne jumped the shark once they won the lottery in the last season, »
Don Cheadle doesn't mince words when it comes to his feelings on wearing the actual Iron Man suit. Or, in his case, the Iron Patriot suit -- a rebranded, star-spangled version of the War Machine suit from "Iron Man 2." At least, I don't think I'm misinterpreting his disdain when he compares it to a device that the infamous Spanish friar Tomás de Torquemada -- known for his proficiency in the art of torture -- might have created.
Regardless of that, Cheadle is once again playing Col. James "Rhodey" Rhodes -- a role that he first played in "Iron Man 2," taking over for Terrence Howard -- in this weekend's instant blockbuster, "Iron Man 3." In this sequel, Cheadle has quite a bit more to do as the U.S. government's version of Iron Man (a.k.a. Iron Patriot) than in the previous film -- and, to Cheadle's pleasure, a lot »

With little lead-in support, NBC drama “Hannibal” opened to decent-ish but unexceptional ratings Thursday — running third among the dramas in the hour but certainly an improvement over the most recent shows to premiere in what has become a troubled timeslot for the Peacock.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, the premiere of Bryan Fuller-created drama “Hannibal” averaged a 1.6 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 and 4.3 million viewers overall. While not great numbers, the premiere does score points for building on its soft lead-in courtesy of first-year comedy “Go On” (1.1/3 in 18-49, 2.4 million viewers overall), which is finishing its season with a pair of Thursday airings.

The Yin/Yang trilogy. I have never been more on the edge of my seat during a cable television show, engrossed in the fate of its characters. The writing pair of Roday and Berman. The minds behind the Yin/Yang trilogy, these two really threw us for a loop with “Yang 3 in 2D.” I am still trying to figure out why you made Yin who he was as a person (not just that he was played by Peter Weller). They, too, really indulged the crazies on that one. Catchphrases like “Suck it,” “You know that’s »

Karen Cartwright, we need to talk.
Just a few months ago, you lost 165 pounds of cheating fiancé, and the change looked great on you. You scored rave reviews in an out-of-town tryout for a Broadway musical, you moved in with a free-spirited artisté roommate, and things were looking up.
But now, when you ought to be focusing on building a healthy, post-Dev self-esteem and launching what could be a major-league Broadway career, you’re wasting time making googly eyes and kissy lips at Jimmy — an obnoxious, entitled, drug-addicted, misogynistic Brooklyn dude who puts the “poseur” in composer.

Seitz Asks: What’s your favorite character death scene?Seitz Answers: Every one in the final minutes of Six Feet Under. A TV character’s death is so inherently powerful that it’s tough for a show to totally screw it up. We’ve lived with these people for years and gotten to feel as though we know them, so of course their passing will affect us, whether the event is tastefully underplayed (M*A*S*H's Colonel Henry Blake dying in an offscreen plane crash) or milked for shock value (Amanda Rosalind plunging into an elevator shaft on L.A. Law, for instance, or a certain Downton Abbey character dying violently this past Sunday).That said, Six Feet Under’s last seven minutes will always top my list of great TV death scenes. Granted, the HBO drama had a tear-generating advantage because it was built around death and fear of same, »

"Ironside" was once an iconic TV detective, a wheelchair bound warrior played by Raymond Burr. Now, it looks like Blair Underwood is ready to fill that rolling seat: NBC has ordered a new "Ironside" pilot starring Underwood in the title role.
The network picked up the pilot on Tuesday (Feb. 5), and Underwood's participation was confirmed on that same day. "Ironside" will be, according to NBC:
"A tough, sexy but acerbic police detective relegated to a wheelchair after a shooting is hardly limited by his disability as he pushes and prods his hand-picked team to solve the most difficult cases in the city."
Whatever changes the new show might make to the classic, at least Ironside himself will remain pretty much the same. No other casting for the pilot has been announced.

NBC is planning to bring back Detective Ironside with a reboot of the iconic 1967 TV drama Ironside. According to Deadline, the green light has been given for NBC to produce a pilot starring Blair Underwood (The Art of Getting By).
The new series will center on a tough, sexy police detective (Underwood) relegated to a wheelchair after a shooting who is hardly limited by his disability as he pushes and prods his hand-picked team to solve the most difficult cases in the city. Mike Caleo (Rescue Me) will write and executive produce the new drama.
The original Ironside series proved very popular, running on NBC from 1967 to 1975, and starred Raymond Burr (Perry Mason) as the iconic wheelchair bound detective, taking down the bad guys in the streets of San Francisco. The orginal show was also well known for its catchy opening sequence theme music by legendary music producer Quincy Jones. »
