When Character Deaths (and Revivals) Work — and When They Don’t

3 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Welcome to the club, Jon Snow and “Game of Thrones” — the club “Supernatural” has been running for years.

I refer, of course, to the “we killed off one of our lead characters — but wait! No we didn’t!” club (note to club secretary — we need to think of a better name).

It’s a phenomenon that is happening much more commonly on high-profile shows as genre entertainment has worked its way into the very heart of the TV industry. Back when Buffy Summers was brought back from the dead, that kind of program was very much on the cult fringes. Re-animation just did not happen on the most important shows of the day; nobody ever expected zombie Mrs. Landringham to turn up on “The West Wing,” for example. (In the time it took to write that sentence, a TV executive just commissioned “Zombie West Wing,” which, to be clear, I »

29 April 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

C.J. Cregg is back to running the country, sort of. On Friday, Allison Janney revisited her The West Wing character and stepped up to the podium at the White House and acting as the President's Press Secretary once more. "Hi everyone, good afternoon," said Janney, 56, during a press briefing. "Josh [Earnest] is out today, I believe it's a root canal," she joked, referencing one of her own character's storylines while poking fun at the real White House Press spokesperson. After a few more jokes, Earnest walked in and told the actress that, since she was standing at the podium, she "might as well use it. »

A seasoned vet just made her way to the briefing podium in the White House press room, much to the delight of The West Wing fans everywhere. That's right—Allison Janney briefly filled in for White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Friday, April 29 as her former character C.J.

Looking Back at a Decade Ago When TV First Peaked

19 April 2016 3:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Mad Men” didn’t premiere until 2007 — after the landmark year of 2006 — but what Don Draper said about the Kodak Carousel is eternally true: “Nostalgia: It’s delicate, but potent.”

Some context: A passing comment from a critic, who made an astute observation about “The Americans,” made me search out a piece I’d written a decade ago. That short exchange led me down another rabbit hole: I began to compile a list of TV shows that were on the air in 2006.

The more I dug, the more I dwelled on something I and many other critics knew 10 years ago, but today, this realization struck me again with some force: The year 2006 was, by any account, a banner year for television.

This is by no means a complete list of TV shows available on American television in 2006. It’s a a very partial list that leans heavily on many of my favorites of the mid-aughts era. »

Will 'House of Cards' and 'Veep' get Emmy boost from presidential election fever?

8 April 2016 6:41 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Do you love Emmy-watching, but hate following the presidential election? Hate to break it to you, but history shows that the two are often inextricably linked to one another. The first of four consecutive “The West Wing” wins for Best Drama Series came in the Bush v. Gore election year of 2000. In 2009, Tina Fey took home the Best Comedy Guest Actress award for playing Sarah Palin during the 2008 election cycle. And just last year, when talk of the current election began, “Veep” finally won Best Comedy Series after three losses in non-election years for a season notably about an election. -Break- This year there are handful of races set to be influenced by this year’s buzzworthy primary season and the upcoming election.
