Full House is doing it. Boy Meets World has done it. Heck, even Coach is taking a shot at doing it. But will The Wonder Years also jump in the game for a reunion of some sort? It doesn't sound like it. The series, which ran for six seasons starting in 1988, looked at life in the 1960s and '70s as seen through the eyes of Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage) with an adult Kevin (Daniel Stern) heard in voiceovers recalling his childhood. "I don't think so," says Danica McKellar, who played Winnie Cooper on the show, about a possible Wonder comeback. "I mean, Fred's kind of out of the acting business. He's a director now." Maybe he could direct a reunion? "Yeah, »
Danica McKellar continues to look…Amazing! "40 is the new 25," the former The Wonder Years star says. It sure looks it. McKellar tells me she keeps in shape through Pilates, yoga and dance. She competed last season on Dancing With the Stars with Val Chmerkovskiy. "I kept it up and now my husband and I are taking tango lessons together," McKellar said yesterday at the Storybook Suite presented by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals event in Hollywood. The mom of one and attorney Scott Sveslosky married in November. "He's very good," McKellar said of her hubby. "I mean, this is all new for him, but he's doing great. I'm »
Fox loves a familiar face, and whether that means renewing shows that have been on way too long, or picking up a new show with Rob Lowe and Fred Savage. You can’t blame them, because people, but this one looks like it might have an uphill battle for fans… or it will be brilliant… or both.
In a spin on legal shows that seems to suggest an underlying dislike of legal shows, Lowe plays an actor who was on a show playing a lawyer for several years. With his show finally off the air, he’s moving back home, and his brother (Savage), who is actually a lawyer, can’t stand him.
That sounds like the perfect opportunity for The Grinder to prance around real courts, stealing his brother’s lack of thunder.
This is a show littered with difficulty, but there is a chance that it could pull everything together. »

With the 2014-2015 television season winding down, many television fans and channels are looking ahead to the new series that will make their debut over the next television season. Fox is no different, having announced their renewals, cancellations, and new series pickups over the last week, and the network has now released trailers for a number of their new series.
First up is the trailer for the new animated series Bordertown.
From Family Guy’s Mark Hentemann comes Bordertown, a new animated comedy about two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S. – Mexico border. The series takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America, where the U.S. Census forecasts that by 2017, ethnic minorities will become the majority. Set against this increasingly diverse backdrop, the comedy explores family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultural wink. Bordertown centers on two clans: the Buckwalds and the Gonzalezes. »

Is anyone else shocked and sort of impressed that "American Idol" is being canceled? It's a waning (waned?) juggernaut, but Fox could've easily kept it on another five years. Yes, it only produced a handful of big stars, but that's just a byproduct of the show's true gift: a platform that made real talents be both productive and vulnerable. When before "American Idol" did we see budding artists try hard in front of us? Every week was an audition, and not every audition was successful. Now that shows like "The Voice" and "Project Runway" have attempted to dramatize the hell out of every contestant story, it feels like the emotional side of reality competitions is reduced to cliche -- but we can't forget that "Idol" gave it to us first and best. Here's what else is up at HitFix today. Edgar Wright interviewed "Ex Machina" director Alex Garland. This movie is damn good. »

The 80s are epitomized by leg warmers, Rubik’s Cubes and the Reagan Era, and now “The Goldbergs,” which takes place in “1980-something,” is taking on the famous presidency. “Bev will have a Nancy Reagan moment,” actress Wendi McLendon-Covey said in the latest episode of TheWrap‘s “Drinking With the Stars.” Also Read: ‘The Goldbergs’ to Air Special ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ Episode The show has already referenced “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and “The Goonies” in past episodes, and McLendon-Covey promises that they will not be getting overly political while tackling Ronald Reagan’s term as president. “This is not ‘The Wonder Years. »

It was reunion night in Hollywood on Saturday, as the casts of some truly beloved TV series got together for the first time in ages at the TV Land Awards.

“I think TV Land is so awesome because it’s like going back home to something comfortable,” Marie Osmond said on the red carpet for the TV Land Awards in Beverly Hills Saturday night. “It’s a friendly place in this crazy world.”
“She’s part of everyone’s life,” Crews said of White. “Everyone, the oldest and the youngest, know and love something that Betty White has been in.”
Also being honored at the ceremony was cult hit “Freaks and Geeks,” the Paul Feig and Judd Apatow outing that was canceled after one season in 2000. The show’s 15th anniversary was commemorated through reassembling the now all-star cast, with Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, Linda Cardellini, Martin Starr and Busy Philipps all in attendance. »

The beloved one-season wonder will receive the 15th Anniversary Award at the ceremony, with TV Land announcing in a press release that despite its short run from 1999-2000, the show "continues to find new fans every year." One of the reasons for that, no doubt, is the stellar ensemble that creator Paul Feig and co. assembled (casting director Allison Jones snagged the series's sole Emmy for her work), and TV Land revealed that almost every single main actor from the series will be present at the awards show.
In addition to that star-studded lineup, the awards will also feature a performance by Jennifer Hudson, »

I’m not really a big fan of sitcoms. Comedy is always a really mixed bag for me as a viewer, because I usually feel that it’s so much harder to consistently be funny than it is to create dramatic moments (not that drama is necessarily easier, but it seems to feel more natural to me as an audience member). I was, however, a huge fan of The Wonder Years “back in the day,” so when I heard about The Goldbergs, I was intrigued. Fortunately, now nearly two full seasons into the show, I have not been disappointed. The Goldbergs is an ABC sitcom that follows a fictionalized version of creator Adam Goldberg’s family as they live life in the 1980s. The show definitely takes advantage of this time period, and it would be virtually impossible to tell the stories that The Goldbergs does without this setting. While »

Since I started compiling Outrage Watch -- HitFix's "(almost) daily rundown of all the thing folks are peeved about in entertainment" -- I've never been faced with a shortage of things to write about. There's a lot of anger out there! At times so much that it can feel overwhelming. Other times, I just have to laugh at the sheer inanity of the things people manage to work themselves up over. Of the stories I highlight, I would say a good 75 percent represent examples of righteous outrage -- i.e. scorn directed at legitimate targets. And the other 25? The phrase "pick your battles" comes to mind here, and indeed, sometimes it seems the level of anger is blown out of all proportion to the target in question. As we look back on the winter of 2015, below you can find my roundup of 13 of the wackiest, most overblown controversies of the year so far. »

Ryan Murphy’s musical sitcom about misfits finding their way through song was a sensation – for its first season. But for fans the magic continued long after that
When Ryan Murphy’s surrealist musical sitcom about a high school choir first arrived on screen, it burned brightly but also quickly. It launched amid hysteria, attracting a mixture of huge acclaim and massive ratings that only occurs a few times in a generation. Yet it fell from TV’s prom queen to Sandra Dee remarkably quickly, as storytelling was pushed aside for musical theme weeks. After the show reaches its conclusion on Us screens this weekend, few will mourn its passing.
But many, myself included, will miss it. This tale of misfits feeling their way into adulthood via the medium of popular song had me at “hello”. And the clues to Glee’s quiet subversion were there from the off; Ohio »
