24 August 2016 11:42 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

You needn’t be a math major to realize that CBS’ NCIS is facing a tight squeeze heading into Season 14, seeing as one (1) desk has been vacated and yet at least two (2) new agents are set to join Gibbs’ team.

How will everyone fit into the squad room? “Well, we’re stacking desks now…,” Brian Dietzen, who plays Jimmy Palmer, answers with a laugh.

But maybe he isn’t so far off.

‘Mr. Robot’ Episode Goes ’90s: Watch The Amazing Fake & Real Vintage Ads (That Only Aired Once)

12 August 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: Spoilers follow for “Mr. Robot” Season 2, Episode 6, “eps2.4_m4ster-s1ave.aes.” (Full review here.)]

TV keeps making ostentatious plays for regaining live viewership (and, as a result, getting live eyeballs on ads). We’re never seen anything like this week, though, when USA’s “Mr. Robot” exploded the idea of what you can do with in-show advertising, and truly rewarded those who tuned in live.

Earlier in the day, creator Sam Esmail had tweeted out a warning that of all the episodes of “Mr. Robot” that have aired recently:

To our streaming viewers, you should watch tonight’s episode of #MrRobot live with the commercials. Trust me on this.

Sam Esmail (@samesmail) August 10, 2016

In this age of DVRing, it was a pretty big request (especially when you consider that “Mr. Robot” starts at 10pm and episodes often run over an hour). But once the episode began, Esmail’s reasons were clear.

Last week’s episode ended with Elliot (Rami Malek) experiencing a brutal beating »

Inside the Office of ‘Black-ish’ Showrunner Kenya Barris

12 August 2016 9:20 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris’ office is on the Disney lot across the street from where the show is filmed. It’s an upbeat place. One week before shooting was set to begin on season three, “Black-ish” received three primetime Emmy Award nominations — for outstanding comedy series as well as for stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross. That type of recognition can liven up a workplace.

Art Felt

Over Barris’ desk hang two paintings by his friend and sometimes collaborator, artist Shah Wonders. The two were paired 15 years ago to create a comic book for DreamWorks. “I love artists,” Barris says. “They have to be self-starters. It’s all on them. I feel a kinship with that.”

After the first season wrapped, Anderson had figurines made of himself with Barris and each of the cast members as a gift. Each person had to undergo a full body scan with Anderson for the figurines to be »

'Mr. Robot' Recap: Too Many Cooks

11 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Sam Esmail is one of the most innovative creators to make his mark on television in a long time. But his greatest skill, after all, may lie more in synthesis and imitation than originality. Mr. Robot is brimming with visual and plot references to movies ranging from Taxi Driver and The Parallax View to Fight Club and Trainspotting, masterpieces of paranoia one and all. But one well we never expected Esmail to draw from? How about Too Many Cooks?

Last Week’S Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Dances With Boundaries and Bullets

In Elliot’s Head, Two’s A Crowd

One of the great things about Mr. Robot is that each week, it might be a completely different show. It’s never been afraid to mix genres, styles and tones in its depiction of Elliot’s fractured mindset, but the audacious opening twenty minutes of this week’s installment sets a new level of craziness, as Elliot finds himself in an late-eighties/early-nineties sitcom — complete with theme music, laugh track and even a special appearance by a legendary Alien Life Form.

As much fun as it was to see Wellick bound and gagged in the trunk, or Gideon-as-cop get run down by Alf, or Darlene get repeatedly socked in the jaw by her mother, the thing that stood out in this sequence was the way Elliot’s genuine terror and bafflement »
