Anghus Houvouras reviews the fourteenth episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D...
They should have called this episode 'Course Correction'. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has suffered something of an identity crisis. Since the shows big premiere, fans have become disenfranchised with the show citing its lack of big thrills and a bland, grating cast as reasons they've started jumping ship. The latest episode 'Family Matters' is another attempt to realign the flight path of the struggling series.
I've been one of the most staunch defenders of the show, though even I'm not daft enough to deny some of the more valid criticisms. Marvel has taken the mid-season break to try and inject the show with some new life. The reveal of Deathlok in the last episode was a big robotic step for the series, finally showing fans that there are some comic book thrills in store for the show. »

Supernatural, Season 9, Episode 15: “#Thinman”
Written by Jenny Klein
Directed by Jeannot Szwarc
Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on The CW
Over the course of their time fighting supernatural entities, the Winchesters have crossed paths with many individuals, some of them multiple times. Much to the chagrin of the Winchesters, one group they have encountered over and over again are the Ghostfacers, a group of otherworldly activity chasers who have previously shown a somewhat tenuous grasp of the knowledge that the Winchesters are well-versed in. This week’s episode sees Sam and Dean cross paths with the Ghostfacers once again, in an enjoyable episode that draws on the parallels between the group and the brothers.
While the Ghostfacers as a group have been hit or miss in their history on the show, they have always been effective as a mirror image look at the lives of the Winchesters. »

Jim Parsons introduced himself to Saturday Night Live by reminding people that no, he does not speak Klingon. The Big Bang Theory star trotted out typecast actors for a musical number in which they insisted they were not the characters they played. Among them: Bobby Moynihan as Seinfeld's Jason Alexander and Jay Pharoah as Family Matters' Jaleel White. (See more here.)

Back in the 1990s, it seemed like every sitcom on television was tailored specifically to the comedian leading its cast. Shows like Roseanne, Home Improvement and Everybody Loves Raymond are just a few examples of hit series that fit this bill, and all three helped keep the family sitcom a television mainstay for years. However, before those shows even aired their respective pilots, The Cosby Show accomplished both these tasks.
Running from 1984 to 1992, the series was one of the biggest hits of its time, reinvigorating family sitcoms and paving the way for more African-American ensemble casts on shows like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Family Matters. Now, over twenty years since his signature series came to an end, Cosby seems poised to take on ...

Saturday Night Live debuted its newest cast member, Sasheer Zamata, last night, and while the media has been buzzing over Zamata, the show opted to seamlessly and quietly integrate her into the evening's sketches, which seemed to work to everyone's advantage - it didn't force Zamata to carry any sketches on her first time out, and it didn't make SNL look overeager to push her. Also working to everyone's advantage: Drake, whose charisma and comfort in front of the camera reminded us that, despite all the flack he's gotten for it, he was actually pretty good on Degrassi: The Next Generation. »

It's always kind of a relief when the musicians who host "Saturday Night Live" also have some sort of acting ability -- you know they won't embarrass themselves, so you don't have to worry about cringing through an entire hour and a half. Since Drake, a.k.a. Aubrey Graham, spent his formative years acting on a Canadian teen soap opera, he not only fully committed to every skit, he also had the acting chops to pull it off.
This one's not online, for some reason, but Drake got started with the jokes early as a not-very-apologetic Alex Rodriguez speaking with Taran Killam's Piers Morgan and trying to blame his steroid abuse on autocorrect, Jackie Robinson and the dictionary -- basically, everyone but himself. Kate McKinnon also played an excellent, constantly posing Justin Bieber.

Drake proved last night that he hasn't let those Degrassi acting skills grow rusty during his hosting stint on Saturday Night Live, channeling a range of characters from a dorky dad at a slumber party to a smitten high school student in detention and a weed-extoling Katt Williams, in addition to packing in Nothing Was the Same tracks as musical guest. The rapper started off on a strong foot, playing Alex Rodriguez in the Piers Morgan cold open, announcing his plans to sue everyone from Major League Baseball to steroids »
Piers Morgan Cold Open
Taran Killim starred as Piers Morgan in Saturday Night Live’s cold open. First, he interviewed a fittingly brash Chris Christie (Bobby Moynihan) talking about “Bridgegate.” Drake then made his debut as A-Rod, discussing his suspension from the Mlb and how he's suing everything and everyone – including steroids and Jackie Robinson. The cold open concluded with Justin Bieber (Kate McKinnon) explaining why he threw eggs at his neighbor, mugging for the camera the whole time. “The yolk’s on me baby.”
Drake Bar Mitzvah/ Opening Monologue
For his opening monologue, Drake started by talking about Canada, and made a crack about the Toronto mayor smoking crack. He also apologized for Yolo, called out Degrassi and focused on his being Jewish. The monologue concluded with Drake back at his Bar Mitzvah, »
Maybe not since the early to mid-1990s, when Hanging With Mr Cooper, Sister, Sister, and Family Matters were all on air on ABC, have we seen this many shows centered around the lives of black characters on the network, at the same time (although they haven't all yet made it onto ABC's lineup, so everything I just said is moot). Earlier this week, rapper/actor Eve joined a *family* over at ABC that includes Shonda Rhimes, Keenen Ivory Wayans, Kevin Hart, Kenya Barris and Sheldon Candis - each either already has a show - or shows - on the network's lineup, or has a show - or shows - in development at the network). Announced today, ABC has ordered a pilot for Barris' half-hour scripted comedy titled Black-ish (from a previous script commitment) starring Anthony Anderson, written by Kenya Barris (The Game), and produced by Laurence Fishburne’s Cinema Gypsy production company. »

Jo Frost is to front a new ITV Daytime series.
The 35-part series will see Frost meet two families each episode with different issues, including absent parents, tearaway teens, step-families and parents who have had extra-marital affairs.
Frost will visit each family's home, talk through their problems and seek solutions.
She said of the new programme: "Family is the core foundation of our society, it gives us a base of who we are and who we will become and perpetuates in our future families.
"Giving families a chance to be heard, supported and helped is what makes a real difference now and in the future, it is very much needed in Great Britain today.
"I am absolutely thrilled to help families learn how to repair their foundations and to be undertaking this project with ITV Daytime. »
Full House may have wrapped more than 18 years ago, but its cast members continue to fuel nostalgia for the long-running ABC sitcom. This past summer, John Stamos's former costars gathered for his 50th birthday celebration, and Stamos and Lori Loughlin cozied up for an Instagram shot while seeing the current Broadway revival of Pippin. Meanwhile, back in May, Candace Cameron Bure and Jodie Sweetin shared a photo-op with TV dad Bob Saget at a benefit in Beverly Hills. So, it's not surprising that if a proper reunion were to happen, at least one star would be on board. "Everyone »

Avery was born in 1945 and raised in Atlantic City. He served a stint in the Us Navy during Vietnam and had a prolific career in the entertainment industry, writing poetry and scripts, providing voice-overs and acting in film and television.
His work spanned three decades,including Family Matters, Grey’s Anatomy, Star Trek: Enterprise, L.A. Law and The Closer. Avery also provided the voice for Shredder in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from 1987 to 1993.
But of course it was his role as Banks family patriarch, Uncle Phil, in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air that he was arguably best known and loved for. The series, which ran from 1990 to 1996, was a staple of ’90s television and famously launched Will Smith’s acting career.
