It’s Okay, Dudes, Kimmy Gibbler Will Be Back for New ‘Full House’

26 August 2014 3:15 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

If you’ve already exhausted your syndicated TV options — heavy on the Friends, light on the Family Matters, some Seinfeld thrown in for good measure – we’ve got the throwback news you’re apparently pretty hungry for. New Full House. No, really. And, no, it’s not suddenly 1997, so stop shaking your calendar (and making that joke). TV Guide reports that “Warner Bros. TV is mulling a new take on Full House, with some of the original cast intact.” What. Well, it turns out that Full House continues to perform exceptionally well on the syndicated market (it does seem to be on all the time) and that measurable audience interest, combined with the actual cast’s apparent desire to come back from some more family-friendly hijinks, means that little dollar signs are positively dancing in the heads of the Warner Bros. brass. Honestly, who could possibly blame them? The outlet also shares that John Stamos (Uncle Jesse »

'Dreamgirls' Producer to Adapt Broadway Musical '13'

12 August 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

CBS Films is teaming up with Dreamgirls producer Laurence Mark to bring the hit Broadway musical 13 to the big screen.

Bert V. Royal (Easy A) has signed on to write the screenplay, which centers on a teenage boy who is at the top of his social circle in Manhattan. In the aftermath of his parents' messy divorce, he is transplanted to a small town in Indiana, where he finds himself "uncool" for the first time in his life. With his bar mitzvah coming up, he hatches a plan to become cool again, which doesn't go quite so well.

Dan Elish and Robert Horn wrote the book for the play, with Jason Robert Brown penning the music for the play, which debuted at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles in 2007, before moving to Broadway in 2008.

Laurence Mark will produce alongside Robert L. Boyett, who produced hit TV shows such as Bosom Buddies, »

Teen Wolf Recap: To Catch a Predator

11 August 2014 8:20 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Scott and his pack set a trap for the Benefactor on Monday’s Teen Wolf, but unfortunately, they forgot the first rule of villain-catching: If you’re going to fake your own death, you’d better tell your mom first!

Related Teen Wolf Recap: Going Viral

Mama McCall suffered an epic, albeit totally appropriate, breakdown before eventually learning that Scott was merely in a Kira-induced coma (which really shouldn’t have been that much of a relief.) Fortunately, there was one upside to Scott’s coma: He got to have a series of freaky dreams, which — thanks to Stiles’ brief »

Retro bleak: Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence are 'Partners' in groaners

4 August 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

In 2012, CBS premiered a new show about two odd-couple male pals. It was called Partners, and on the surface, it seemed to have everything going for it—a prime slot following How I Met Your Mother, a great pedigree courtesy of two ’90s sitcom wizards (it was created by Max Mutchnick and David Kohan of Will & Grace fame), two charismatic stars (Michael Urie and David Krumholtz). Even so, Partners failed to gain traction. Critics griped that its old-fashioned jokes were tired rather than appealingly retro; just a few weeks into the 2012-2013 TV season, it became one of the first shows to get the ax. »

Need a Vacation? Take It Online with Your Favorite Classic Sitcoms!

28 July 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Summer means two things for most Americans: A family trip and a lack of decent TV. However, if you're currently stuck at home, wishing you could find something better to watch, we've got an easy, free solution. You can just ride along with your favorite sitcom of choice! Remember when sitcoms regularly had group vacations, played out over a series of episodes or even over two-hour movie events? Sure, Modern Family still does an "away" adventure about once per season, but there was a time when a vacation episode was a full-fledged TV event. Shows you loved would ditch the »

Pretty Little Liars Recap: Crouching Attacker, Hidden Stalker

That must have been some nap.

In this week’s Pretty Little Liars, A is awake and off with a bang (literally). And if blowing up Toby’s house isn’t enough (Rip Chez Cavanaugh), he/she/they felt it necessary to film Alison’s mother’s burial and offer her and the girls front seats to the horror.

Under the Dome Recap: Acid Trip

14 July 2014 8:44 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

You know how a family dinner can get really awkward when the topic of religion comes up? That’s essentially what happens on Monday’s installment of Under the Dome, with much uglier repercussions than uncomfortable silence.

Here’s what went down this week in Chester’s Mill:

Close Shave | In case you were hoping for another shady Chester’s Mill resident to make his appearance, you’re in luck! Town barber Lyle Chumley (played by actor-musician Dwight Yoakam) enters the fray and quickly butts heads with Rebecca about why the dome is causing trouble. Lyle turns to the Bible »

Guess how many times they say the word 'world' in the 'Girl Meets World' pilot

27 June 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

I’m on the record as being ambivalent about Girl Meets World, Disney Channel’s highly enthusiastically ridiculously anticipated sequel/spinoff to millennial favorite Boy Meets World. (I also take full responsibility for helping to stoke that fervor for the past year and a half.) On one hand: Nostalgia! On the other: This is clearly a series meant for viewers born after the original show ended in the year 2000, and if you’re not one of them, watching it will make you feel old. The show’s bright colors, broad jokes, and earnest lessons all scream “modern-day Disney,” and it »

Remembering the Best and Worst of ABC’s Tgif Lineup

27 June 2014 1:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In fall 1993, a coming-of-age comedy called “Boy Meets World” premiered on ABC’s “Tgif” Friday night lineup; 21 years later, its sequel series, “Girl Meets World,” is debuting on the Disney Channel with many of the original cast members reprising their roles for a new generation.

Few could have anticipated the enduring popularity of the family sitcom — which starred Ben Savage as Cornelius “Cory” Matthews and Danielle Fishel as his first love and eventual wife, Topanga Lawrence — but ABC’s Tgif block was responsible for a number of iconic comedies during its initial run between 1989 and 2000, many of which still live on in syndication today. And, as with all networks, the roster was also responsible for some spectacular trainwrecks, with concepts so surreal, you’d think a kid pitched them while on a sugar high.

TV Review: ‘Girl Meets World’

27 June 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Heavily rooted in nostalgia, the generation-later sitcom “Girl Meets World” banks on the young audience the show seeks having been weaned on reruns of the original “Boy Meets World,” while sounding a simultaneous “All clear” to their parents. It’s telling, of course, that this Disney Channel sequel not only changes genders but schedules the show Friday, where ABC’s “Tgif” sitcoms once held sway, before the broadcast networks abandoned family viewing as a business model. Tediously self-referential and sweet to the point of cloying, the show has an appealing lead in Rowan Blanchard, which, based on past performance, might be enough.

The conceit is “Boy’s” Cory and Topanga — again played by Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel — married, grew up and had a couple of kids, the older being the wide-eyed Riley (Blanchard), a buttoned-up sort who has become bosom buddies with the rebellious Maya (Sabrina Carpenter). Or as Riley puts it, »

Woah! Naya Rivera's Dramatic Transformation Revealed: See a Pre-Glee Pic of the Actress

13 June 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Naya Rivera is all grown up! A pre-fame photo of the Glee actress has surfaced, and it appears that the 27-year-old beauty has gone through quite the transformation over the years. The pic shows Rivera with a large mole on her chin, as well as darker locks and seemingly smaller lips. Despite the change, her inherent charm is nearly palpable in the old-school pic as she beams from ear to ear while showing off her natural beauty in bright orange turtleneck and flared jeans. Before she shot to superstardom on the hit Fox series, Rivera was a child star, who appeared alongside Eddie Murphy in the series comedy Royal Family, which aired from 1991 to 1992. She was also seen on Family Matters, as well as The »

'Veep' and other TV shows that outgrew their titles

11 June 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

One thing that makes television so great (and different from film) is the luxury of multiple years and seasons to explore different moments and experiences in a character’s life as they naturally progress. Because of that, TV shows frequently evolve drastically from their tidy season 1 concepts, which can make their original titles a bit confusing.

With some minor spoilers ahead, here are six TV shows that might have benefited from a name change during their runs:

Those Were The Days (of TV theme songs)

25 May 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Like it or not, the television landscape has changed. Reality TV and its “stars” seem to be here to stay, which is bad news for nostalgia freaks like me, who’d rather watch repeats of old shows than spend half an hour with a real housewife, a top chef, or a Boo Boo of any kind. While the number of reality shows are on the increase, an integral part of TV viewing has quietly been disappearing; that simple melody that you waited to hear with anticipation once a week coming from your living room, aka a theme song.

If you’re under a certain age (like say, 25 or younger), you might not get my gripe. I can’t really blame you; most likely you’ve grown up with slim pickings as far as theme songs go, and by now watch everything online anyway, commercial and theme song free. But shocker: »
