Happyish Season 1 Review

22 April 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three episodes were provided for reviewing purposes prior to broadcast.

Showtime’s new half-hour dramedy Happyish is a bit off-brand for the network, which usually slots the hero-with-a-dark-secret into a thirty-minute show blueprint. The new show is less Weeds, Nurse Jackie or The Big C and more Californication: a loose character study about a middle-aged guy trying to desperately fight to establish his own existence and find a reason for it. Steve Coogan’s Thom Payne has no grand, mysterious backstory or any blatant reason to tip-toe carefully around revealing a second life to his friends and family. He just goes to work, loves his family and occasionally imagines advertising characters talking to him.

Ah, there’s the quirky hook you were waiting for. See, Thom is an advertising exec for a company with accounts like Coca-Cola and Geico. The pilot presents a guy with an average life – wife, son, »

Nickelodeon: Gender Parity Part of Cabler’s Culture

21 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Gender parity in the workplace took center stage at the Oscars in March, fueled by Patricia Arquette’s impassioned speech during the broadcast, but for the women at cabler Nickelodeon, that issue has been in place since the channel’s launch.

In 1980, Geraldine Laybourne became its first female president, fostering a female-friendly work culture while pioneering a slate of such innovative kids’ programming as “Rugrats” and “You Can’t Do That on Television!” It was under Laybourne’s leadership that the then-fledgling Nickelodeon became a top-rated, Emmy- and Peabody-decorated network.

“One of the great things about the number of women in our organization — and we account for more than 50% — is that we actually have never had to say ‘hear us roar’ because we were all there already,” says Cyma Zarghami, president of the Viacom Kids and Family Group. “For the most part our experience has always been very female friendly »

A Nickelodeon Cartoon Showed a Topless Woman's Breasts and Parents Are Upset

16 March 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

There’s a reason they call it the boob tube. (And it actually has nothing to do with this: The word “boob” is old-time slang for a foolish or stupid person, so the phrase was bashing TV and the people who watched it. Still...)

In a March 5 episode of the animated show Oggy and the Cockroaches called “(Un)happy Camper,” Nickelodeon showed a cartoon picture of a woman with big sunglasses, bigger lips, and the biggest naked boobs we’ve ever seen on a children’s show.

Parents were not pleased. Here’s the Nsfw screen capture:

News: Here are 7 cartoons from the ‘90s that we’d love to see rebooted

Oggy and the Cockroaches is a French cartoon from the ‘90s -- it’s about a cat named Oggy who is constantly tormented by three cockroaches, in the vein of Tom and Jerry -- and it started re-airing on Nickelodeon and Nicktoons last month.

Nickelodeon Animation Builds New Facility Just in Time for 25th Anniversary

10 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Nickelodeon Animation Studio has big plans for the future.

With 31 titles currently in production, including live action, movies and shorts, spread out across various L.A. areas from Glendale to Santa Monica, the company aims to unite the entire Nick family in a single facility opening in Burbank next year. And the studio hopes the new state-of-the-art five-story glass structure will become a hub for the entire animation industry.

“This will be the first time all our creative teams are actually together,” says Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon’s president of content development and production. “Currently, ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ is being done in Glendale, ‘Dora the Explorer’ in downtown Burbank and ‘SpongeBob’ is housed at the animation studio. It will be the first time these major brands and creative hubs come together under one roof. I think it’s going to create a very exciting time and help next generation of creativity. »

Ice-t as the Voice of Dora the Explorer Is Hilariously Inappropriate

26 February 2015 12:25 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Ice-t dropped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday to promote the latest season of his show Law & Order: Svu. During the chat, Jimmy revealed to the audience that aside from his longtime role as Detective Fin Tutuola on the crime drama, Ice-t is actually well-known for his voiceover work as well; the host went on to roll some footage of Ice-t voicing cartoons like G.I. Joe and Scooby-Doo, as well as Dora from Dora the Explorer. While it's obviously not true - though Ice-t has provided voiceovers for video games like Grand Theft Auto - you'll definitely crack up hearing the rapper as Dora, asking, "Any of you motherf*ckers seen Crocodile Lake?!" Watch the video now above, and check out more of Jimmy's hilarious viral videos. »

Ice T Does Voiceovers in Scooby-Doo, G.I. Joe and Dora the Explorer (Video)

26 February 2015 9:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ice T has one of the most distinctive voices in pop culture. And whether you know him more as a rapper or a detective on Law & Order: Svu, you're bound to recognize that iconic rasp, even if it were coming out of, say, a G.I. Joe character. That was the theory Jimmy Fallon set out to test on Wednesday's Tonight Show, anyway. He spliced T's voice into old Scooby-Doo and G.I. Joe cartoons, throwing in a clip from Dora the Explorer for extra cognitive dissonance. Ice T - who turned 57 on Feb. 16 - also weighed in on Fifty Shades of Grey, »

Ice T lent his voice to a number of popular children’s cartoons on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday. The gangster rapper and star of “Law and Order: Svu” told Fallon that he has been voicing cartoon characters for years, you just have to “listen hard.” Also Read: From Steve Allen to Jay Leno – All of ‘Tonight Show’s’ Hosts and Sidekicks Before Jimmy Fallon (Photos) Fallon played clips of Ice providing the voices of Doc from “G.I.

Ice-t Sounds Off on "Boring" Fifty Shades of Grey, Re-Voices Dora the Explorer—Watch Now!

26 February 2015 7:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Ice-t is a man of many talents. On Wednesday's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the rapper-actor demonstrated some of these skills by re-voicing some famed kids' cartoons. "You probably have one of the coolest voices out there," said Jimmy. "I love just hearing your voice...and I didn't know this, but you actually did lots of voiceover work for cartoons." "Oh, yeah," said Ice. "Lots of it. Listen hard, you'll know [it's my voice]..." From there, Jimmy proceeded to play back a series of [obviously edited] clips from shows like G.I. Joe, Scooby-Doo and even Dora the Explorer. "Alright, Boots," said the animated adventurer (as Ice-t)! »

Ice T Is the New Dora the Explorer We’ve Been Waiting For

26 February 2015 12:25 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jimmy Fallon is a big fan of Ice T's deep cuts (i.e., his cartoon voice-overs), and he's been busy proselytizing. Or making up fake vignettes. Regardless, the first few clips here are flat blue jokes, but then Ice T morphs into Dora the Explorer and delivers delicious magic akin to Go the F**k to Sleep. Because Ice T is the people's hero. »

Doug Herzog, Cyma Zarghami Rise in Viacom Cable Restructuring

19 February 2015 6:46 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Viacom has overhauled the management of its cable groups, with Doug Herzog adding oversight of MTV, VH1 and other networks to his portfolio while TV Land and Cmt move into the kids and family group headed by Nickelodeon chief Cyma Zarghami.

The restructuring comes after the exits this week of longtime MTV Networks exec Van Toffler and TV Land president Larry Jones. Viacom is under increasing pressure to turn around the declining ratings at its flagship cablers, which has led to turbulence in its affiliation negotiations with some MVPDs. News last week of Jon Stewart’s pending departure from Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” didn’t help matters.

“Our industry is in transition, and change does not always come easy, but we have a tremendous amount of talent at Viacom, and we are innovating at every level and at every brand,” Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman wrote in a memo to staffers Thursday. »
