"I got the call while on my honeymoon and was told it was really important that I fly in," Clooney said. "First I had to explain that to my wife, which didn't play well.
"And then, the whole idea of spending part of your honeymoon with people dressed up like Captain Kirk and Star Wars characters somehow wasn't easy to explain to my new bride. But, I showed up and it was actually fun."
Clooney, who is well known for pranking his famous co-stars, also told Norton about his »

“We will tell you why the dome came down and what it’s about,” Baer promised at a CBS summer press event on Monday. »
This extra-rewarding if occasionally trying film opens with a slow-gaited nocturnal entrance into an ER. Going into and out of hospitals is a hazard of the trade — of the work, in fact — of the habit for young lovers Bobbie (Kim Shaw, destined for the big time) and Jude (David Dastmalchian), fully committed addicts whose survival depends on the luck of the draw: carrying through scams, or being scammed themselves. They are caught up in a vicious cycle. Most of the time, they come out relatively lucky: In spite of some bad eggs — my gosh, some of the […] »

It’s already time to start looking at what’s hitting in fall, and as the network upfronts wrap up, we can try to figure out what to watch, what to DVR, and what to avoid.
New shows abound, but the schedule has some new efforts looking to grab attention as well.
First we’ll run through the schedule, and on following pages we’ll take a closer look at each network’s new show, with trailers for those that have them available.

The term “stick to your knitting” is something of a double-edged sword for CBS — reflecting the network’s enviable stability, but also evoking images of the heavy granny constituency that watches “Blue Bloods,” when media buyers have a vampiric thirst for youth. Given that, the one major flyer the network is taking — ordering “Supergirl,” a series that would be a more natural fit for its younger sibling the CW — becomes the linchpin of its hopes for fall, along with the launch of Stephen Colbert’s turn in the “Late Show” chair.
Those were, frankly, the most exciting moments in an upfront presentation touting a lineup otherwise immersed in spinoffs. To its credit, CBS knows how to put on a show, and after a “Big Bang Theory”-inspired gag with sales chief Jo Ann Ross, Colbert came on to plug his arrival, engaging in a bit of extended shtick with CBS CEO Leslie Moonves. »

Along with all other networks on Upfronts week, CBS is unveiling the lineup for their 2015-2016 television season, just as the current one winds down. Having already announced the existing shows that will and won’t be returning next season, CBS also revealed the new shows that will be appearing on the channel, along with trailers.
Among the new series on CBS in the fall will be Supergirl.
Supergirl is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew »

By the end of the 2000s, getting number one at the American box office was a valuable marketing commodity. As such, studios pumped more and more money into making sure they at least had a great opening weekend for their product.
The consequence of this was that it was harder and harder for smaller and quirkier films to take a brief spot in the sun. Certainly towards the second half of the decade, it seems that the number one movie each week was pre-ordinained in a marketing meeting somewhere.
Still, there were some films that have since fallen out of public view that clawed their way to number one. How many of these do you remember?

CBS today unveiled its 2015-2016 primetime lineup, featuring seven new shows and 22 returning series. CBS will build on a schedule that will finish the current season as America's most-watched network in viewers for the 12th time in 13 years, including the last seven years straight. The new fall dramas are: the heart-pounding medical series Code Black, set in the busiest, most notorious ER in the nation; the fast-paced Limitless, based on the feature film with Bradley Cooper, starring Jake McDorman as an average guy who can suddenly access 100% of his brain capacity with a mysterious pill; and Supergirl, starring Melissa Benoist in the title role based on the DC Comics superhero.
The new fall comedies are: Angel from Hell, about a loud, colorful, often inappropriate woman who claims to be a guardian angel, starring Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch and Maggie Lawson; and Life in Pieces, an irreverent »
With the 2014-2015 television season winding down, many television fans and channels are looking ahead to the new series that will make their debut over the next television season. Fox is no different, having announced their renewals, cancellations, and new series pickups over the last week, and the network has now released trailers for a number of their new series.
First up is the trailer for the new animated series Bordertown.
From Family Guy’s Mark Hentemann comes Bordertown, a new animated comedy about two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S. – Mexico border. The series takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America, where the U.S. Census forecasts that by 2017, ethnic minorities will become the majority. Set against this increasingly diverse backdrop, the comedy explores family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultural wink. Bordertown centers on two clans: the Buckwalds and the Gonzalezes. »

Fox is taking a shot at what seems to be part of the old school renewal genre largely capitalized on by TV Land. Grandfathered, a new fall show starring John Stamos, has all the hallmarks of a show looking to revitalize the general sensibilities of a bygone era of television sit-coms.
With apparently much in common with any of the original efforts on TV Land, and similar vehicles elsewhere (Last Man Standing), the show seems to be after a lighter brand of comedy with a lot of theoretically heartwarming moments.
Stamos plays an over-the-top, aging bachelor who owns a restaurant, and is focused on his business and his free lifestyle. His world is turned upside-down when he learns he not only has a son he never knew about, but he’s suddenly a grandfather as well.
There’s a fair amount of potential, but this brand of comedy could easily go wrong, »
