The bawdy comedy about a teddy bear who enjoys such simple pleasures as bong rips, cold ones and “Law and Order” marathons will likely earn $50 million when it debuts across 3,441 theaters. That’s in line with the $54 million that the first “Ted” generated when it hit screens in 2012. The sequel cost $85 million to produce and was co-financed by Media Rights Capital. It brings back stars Seth MacFarlane and Mark Wahlberg, but cycles in Amanda Seyfried for Mila Kunis.
“Ted 2’s” likely success continues Universal Pictures’ torrid streak at the multiplexes. With the year hovering at midpoint, the studio has already rolled out “Furious 7,” “Pitch Perfect 2,” “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Jurassic World,” a box office Indominus rex that set »

USA, a network known best for its original shows starring suave men in nice clothes (think "Burn Notice," "Suits," "Graceland," etc.) and seemingly never-ending marathons of "Law and Order: Svu," appears to be going in a much different and much more intriguing direction with its new series, "Mr. Robot."
On "Mr. Robot," you will not find a muscle-y hero with quick reflexes and even quicker comebacks. Instead you'll find Elliot (Rami Malek), a quiet tech geek with serious social anxiety. By day, he works as a cybersecurity programmer at the same firm as his childhood friend (and possible love interest), Angela (Portia Doubleday); by night, he's a hacker vigilante out to right what he sees as the world's many wrongs. Through an internal monologue running throughout the episode, we find out more about Elliot's disillusioned view of the world and the people who run it. Enemy number one in »

Since Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979, the Star Trek cinematic outings have proved to be a smorgasbord of references and famous actors (or those who would go on to be), and often had complex behind the scenes events that stopped some rather, ahem, fascinating moments making it to the final version. We found lots of nerdy spots in the first six films here.
This time out we look at the films featuring the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation and choose 47 factoids. Granted, there's a lot more than that of interest, but we've tried for ones that you might not be aware of.
Oh, and there are some major spoilers...

According to a recent report from TV Line, it's definitely confirmed to be very true. We won't be seeing actor, Danny Pino aka Nick Amaro, in action anymore as he's decided to exit the "Law And Order: Svu" show indefinitely. So, don't be looking for him in season 17. Showrunner ,Warren Leight, mentioned to TV Guide that it was probably about the right time for him to leave, saying: "It seemed to be, in a strange way, right for Amaro to start fresh somewhere else. It’s not to say any of us enjoys it, but it seems like that’s where the story was going and I think all of the actors felt like the exit was honored.” As previously reported, "Law And Order: Svu," was definitely early renewed for a brand new season 17. The official premiere date should be announced in a few weeks, so stay tuned for that. »

Law and Order: Svu ended its sixteenth season with a bang. Yes, there was a courtroom shootout, but the bang I'm talking about is Sgt. Olivia Benson's (Mariska Hargitay) conversation with Detective Nick Amaro (Danny Pino) about her former partner, Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni). Yes, Svu went there. And it's fine. In fact, it's good the writers did. This is the conversation that is stirring up all sorts of feelings in Svu fans: Amaro: "I know I wasn't what your old partner was for you." Benson: "No, you weren't. I grew more in my last four years with you than I did in the 12 years I was with him. You know, that relationship, whatever it was, didn't allow for »

Law and Order: Svu is no stranger to cast changes, but this time viewers got a proper goodbye from Danny Pino. E! News has confirmed Pino, who joined the show in season 13 alongside Kelli Giddish as new detectives replacing Christopher Meloni, left the series as a series regular as of the season 16 finale. His character, Nick Amaro, has had problems with the brass before and attempted to apply for the sergeant's exam, but was discouraged. After a shootout in the courtroom that saw him take out Johnny D. (Charles Halford), Benson's (Mariska Hargitay) latest tormentor, Amaro took a bullet to the liver and knee. Sensing he was going nowhere in New York, Amaro informed Benson he was planning to retire and head to »
Can Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson ever be happy on Law and Order: Svu? She's been pretty darn close this season while caring for little Noah, the foster child she's planning to adopt in the Law and Order: Svu season 16 finale. But this is Law and Order: Svu. Things never go as planned. Noah's birth father, Johnny Drake (Charles Halford), returns and tries to reclaim his parental rights in "Surrendering Noah." Yes, the same Johnny D. who was involved in a sex trafficking ring and is being charged with rape, kidnapping and assault. As if that weren't enough to stress out viewers, we know this: Not everybody makes it out of the finale alive. "Juicier than that? That's already insanely »
I call them “cop shows” or, if I’m feeling a bit cutesy, “badge operas.” A screenwriting acquaintance says they’re “procedurals.” But never mind the label: by whatever name, they’re what constitutes most of the bread-and-butter television programming and you probably don’t have to go further than your nearest remote to find one.
There will be a pseudo family of protagonists – police, doctors, lawyers, feds, the occasional fire fighter or paramedic – and these people will be presented with a problem, usually one that involves injury done to an innocent party, and, using their skills and wit and such facilities as are provided to them, they will solve the problem. Usually, but not always, there is a happy ending appended to the story and once in a very great while, things end badly.
But don’t hold your breath waiting for that episode. Usually, by the rolling of the end credits, »

Orange Is the New Black star Samira Wiley hopes Bruce Jenner will inspire more Lgbt celebrities to come out. "I think people are so afraid to do it, rightfully so, because of history," Wiley, who is openly gay, told me while promoting her guest role on tonight's Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. "But I think people sometimes think we're still in that time. I find more and more when celebrities come out it's like, 'Oh, gosh, I didn't know that person was gay,' but as quickly as the next day it sort of becomes obsolete because that doesn't change who the person is. "I think more and more people are starting to realize that," she said. Even so, the 28-year-old »
You can add Samira Wiley to the long list of Orange Is the New Black stars who have appeared on Law and Order. The actress (aka Oitnb's Poussey) makes her debut on tonight's Law and Order: Special Victims Unit as Michelle, a woman who comes forward to recant her claims of rape and incest that sent her father to prison 17 years ago. "For a New York actor, there are two things you look forward to—getting your SAG card and being on Law and Order," Wiley tells me with a big laugh. "I'm finally an actor now!" Wiley admits she couldn't stop taking photos when she was on the Svu set. "It was sort of surreal," she said. "It's such an iconic »

Welcome back to the fold, Captain Cragen (Dann Florek) and Bayard Ellis (Andre Braugher)! Now go deal with "Perverted Justice." So what's brought Bayard Ellis back into Sgt. Olivia Benson's (Mariska Hargitay) life? And why are they at dinner? And is that spark igniting?! And how can we get NBC to give us updates on Baby Noah and the adoption every hour? "Such a sweet boy," Ellis says. "He has your smile." "If everything goes as planned then the adoption will be official in a month," Benson says. Be still our Baby Noah-loving »
Seth MacFarlane's filthy, talking teddy bear is back this Summer with Ted 2, and Universal have dropped a new red band trailer, which shows MacFarlane's signature pop culture infused humour is still strong the second time round (the Law and Order bit that kicks this off is pretty darn funny), and the rapport between Mark Wahlber and CGI co-star is better than ever. We all no MacFarlane has his fair share of detractors, but Ted was one of the better R rated comedies in the last few years, and hopefully the sequel will be more of the same. Released: June 26th (U.S.)/ July 10th (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: Newlywed couple Ted and Tami-Lynn want to have a baby, but in order to qualify to be a parent, Ted will have to prove he's a person in a court of law. »
