Tgif Turns 25: Looking Back at the Family-Friendly Sitcoms That Defined '90s TV

13 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you were a child or a parent during the early '90s, there's a good chance that ABC's Tgif lineup graced your TV set. Remember Tgif? A two-hour block of family-friendly comedies that tried to make it seem fun staying in on Friday nights? It officially debuted 25 years ago this month - on Sept. 22, 1989, with a lineup that included Perfect Strangers, Family Matters, Full House and Just the Ten of Us. And notably, it debuted four years before that other landmark '90s TV block, Must See TV. The early promos are a trip, as they're both introducing the »

Nicholas Stoller talks 'Neighbors,' Rose Byrne gets nasty in Nsfw clip

13 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Animal House, Revenge of the Nerds, Old School—all classic college comedies that inspired generations of devoted fraternity idiots. But Neighbors, the summer blockbuster that pitted Zac Efron’s fun-loving Greeks against the yuppie couple next door—Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne—realized something new and important: a woman—a mother, even—can be just as outrageously funny and asinine as a dude. When the loud fraternity parties into the night and leaves condoms for the neighbors’ darling baby to play with, Byrne’s Kelly proves to be just as formidable as the guys in the tit-for-tat war that ensues. »

The evolution of the TV virus thriller

16 September 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain comes to the UK, we look back at how TV’s virus thrillers have mutated over the decades…

It was much so simpler when they’d just kill you. Once upon a time, viruses in TV dramas were straightforward slaughterers. The flu of 1975’s Survivors, for instance, cut a swathe through the UK, leaving well-spoken corpses wherever it went. Once infected, you’d cough, start sweating, and then drop dead - unless you numbered amongst the lucky immune, in which case it was time to brush up on your scouting badge survival skills and attempt to make your way in a post-plague world.

Nowadays, TV’s infected aren’t given anything like such an easy time of it. After the coughing, sweating, lurching - and often, dying - stage, more often than not, the virus transforms you. You mutate into something monstrous, one »

Highlights from The Simpsons Take The Bowl

15 September 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's no point of reviewing Sunday (September 14) night's The Simpsons Take The Bowl show from The Hollywood Bowl, at least not in a traditional way. Sunday's presentation was the third and final night for The Simpsons Take The Bowl and, alas, if you didn't catch one of the shows... That's it. Sorry. Timed to loosely synchronize with the classic comedy's 25th anniversary, the show's recent syndicated move to Fxx and Sunday, September 28 premiere for the new season, The Simpsons Take The Bowl was a terrific two hours of live music, singing and dancing, culminating in fireworks. The event featured an assortment of new animation tailored around the venue, but also included classic "Simpsons" bits including Homer's plummet down the Springfield Gorge, Homer's gambol through The Land of Chocolate and the transition from the Ajax Steel Mill into The Anvil. I'm not sure that all of my favorite "Simpsons" musical moments were acknowledged. »

Football Wins Sunday For NBC; ‘Miss America’ Tumbles on ABC

15 September 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Football dominated primetime’s ratings action on Sunday, with CBS leading early with the conclusion of its late NFL doubleheader game and NBC winning the rest of the way with “Sunday Night Football.” One of pigskin’s victims was ABC’s “Miss America” pageant, which was down about 25% from last year to its lowest score to date on a broadcast network.

According to preliminary, “live plus same-day” estimates from Nielsen, “Sunday Night Football” averaged a 7.6 rating/21 share in adults 18-49 and 19.4 million viewers overall on the net’s stations from 8:30 to 11 p.m., with these numbers expected to rise by between 10% and 15% when the nationals are released tomorrow. The game, in which the Chicago Bears overcame a 17-0 early deficit and scored three fourth-quarter touchdowns to defeat the San Francisco 49ers 28-20, averaged a 14.0 household rating/23 share in Nielsen’s 56 metered markets — 3% above the 13.6/24 for last year’s San »

Even the creators of The Simpsons know we love the old stuff. Specifically, the first 10 to 12 seasons. That’s the period in which Matt Groening‘s iconic yellow family took the world by storm and became a television institution. Since then many fans have fallen off the show, citing a decline in quality, and maybe […]

New Girl EPs Tease Bridal, Bruising, Biel-Filled Season 4 Premiere

15 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It’s been a cruel, cruel summer for the lofties of Fox’s New Girl, who’ve endured wedding after wedding with little more than a refrigerator door full of save-the-dates to show for it.

But as Season 4 opens (Tuesday at 9/8c), the group’s long, nuptial nightmare is drawing to a much-desired close.

“We pick them up [as they're] about to attend the very last wedding of the season,” executive producer Brett Baer tells TVLine. And all of those champagne toasts and garter tosses have proven fertile romantic ground for some (Schmidt, Coach), not so much for others (Jess, Winston).

Watch Conan O’Brien Perform the Simpsons Monorail Song

13 September 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Simpsons took to the stage of the Hollywood Bowl last night to kick off a three-day series of tributes and performances in anticipation of its 26th season. Conan O'Brien got onstage to perform a classic scene from a classic episode, the monorail song (voiced by the late great Phil Hartman) from "Marge v. the Monorail." Conan's an appropriate choice considering he wrote the episode. Also in attendance was Weird Al, who performed a parody of "Jack and Diane" as "Homer and Marge."
