Ausiello: Though Felicity seems to have navigated many of the early bumps — presentation to the Palmer Tech board included — “We will definitely feel the weight of it” in episodes to come, showrunner Wendy Mericle told Matt Mitovich. “There’s a big decision she and Oliver are going to make at the end of [Episode 413, airing Feb. 10], and it will »
We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Gilmore Girls, American Crime, Supernatural and Younger!
1 | If Undateable gets renewed for Season 4, would it be too much to ask for “TV’s Scott Foley” to pop-in every week? Also, what joke from the finale’s East Coast airing had to be dropped from the West Coast staging “for legal reasons” (as Bill Lawrence shared on Periscope)?

1 | Did we hear Hawaii Five-0‘s Clay right? He thought the stolen $250,000 could send both of Glover’s kids through college and leave something for his pal’s retirement…?!
2 | From Jessica Jones Episode 10: Was Wendy compelled to perform that impromptu surgery specifically on her pristine white leather couch, or was she simply being unwise? (Actually, given how that “1,000 Cuts” sequence later played out… our question is very moot. »
ABC is wrapping the bulk of its pilot pickups today with several more orders, to drama Notorious, based on Mark Geragos, from Josh Berman and The Firm; and four comedies: Shondaland’s Toast, written by Felicity alums and long-time friends Scott Foley and Greg Grunberg; Hail Mary, an adaptation of the Austrian series Braunschlag, from Brian Gallivan and Seth Gordon; a lesbian-straight duo comedy, from writers Ed Weeks & Hannah Mackay and exec producer Andrew Reich; and The… »
Now that a few days have passed since journalists and critics have decamped from Pasadena, Calif. for the annual two-week grind of Television Critics Association winter press tour, Variety‘s TV team has taken stock of the most noteworthy trends.
Sean Penn’s El Chapo interview grabbed headlines, as did his sitdown with Charlie Rose — along with any mention of Donald Trump, “Making A Murderer,” and unintended cast reunions. (No, the “Friends” cast is not getting back together.) But nothing occupied TCA as much as a report on Netflix’s ratings in a presentation by NBC research president Alan Wurtzel — which Netflix chief Ted Sarandos handily dismissed in his exec session as “remarkably inaccurate.”

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s Rachel Bloom — who already won the night with her “Sexy Golden Globey Song” on Instagram — went up against the likes of Scream Queens‘ Jamie Lee Curtis, Veep‘s Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez (last year’s winner!) and Grace & Frankie‘s Lily Tomlin.
In a (very!) welcome surprise twist, Bloom snagged the statue for her work as Rebecca Bunch.

“Falling Skies” alum Connor Jessup is one of the fresh faces in “Crime’s” new installment, which revolves around a high school male rape accusation, centering around Jessup’s lower-class victim Taylor who’s ridiculed by privileged student athletes at his elite prep school where he’s a complete outsider. The trouble starts right away in the premiere episode when photos of a passed-out Taylor surface, causing an uproar at the school.
