Team TVLine’s collective stomach may be overly stuffed with food this Thanksgiving, but our hearts will be pleasantly full of gratitude for the treats this year in TV has bestowed upon us.
During the fall, long-running dramas Scandal and The Vampire Diaries rediscovered their creative grooves, while summer brought us a hotter-than-ever bounty of addictive shows, from promising newcomers like UnREAL and Fear the Walking Dead to mainstays such as Suits and Penny Dreadful.

Netflix, the reviver of long-dormant television shows, is planning to reboot another beloved franchise: The Sixties sci-fi series Lost in Space. The streaming service won a bidding war to acquire the rights to the Irwin Allen-created series, which ran three seasons from 1965 to 1968. As part of the Netflix deal, the rebooted Lost in Space is in line to receive a straight-to-series order, Deadline reports.
Like the original series, which pitted the marooned Robinson family, the duplicitous Dr. Smith and "the Robot" against the mysteries of the universe, the Netflix »
Melissa McCarthy has always been capable of raising a chuckle, but since teaming up with Jason Statham in Spy she has earned newfound levels of respect. Her next project is The Boss, and a trailer has just landed for the movie.
In The Boss, McCarthy plays Michelle Darnell - the richest woman in America. That is, until she gets caught for insider trading and is forced to live a more humble life. Before long, she's trying to start a new business empire utilising the selling skills of some local Girl Guides. Here's the trailer...
Ben Falcone - who made his directorial debut with Tammy - has called the shots on this one. He worked with McCarthy and Steve Mallory on the script. Peter Dinklage and Kristen Bell are among the supporting cast. »

Question: Any new scoop on upcoming episodes of Chicago Fire?? —Alex
Ausiello: Just so you’re aware, Alex, double the question marks does not automatically result in double the scoop. But since I’m feeling generous, let’s give you two tidbits on which to chew. First, the tide may be turning for Severide — at least in the love department. “We have some things coming up romance-wise for him,” executive producer Matt Olmstead teases. On a second (and possibly related) note, »
Ladies and gentlemen, may we present The Exes… and the tech?
Nashville‘s newest romantic triangle — former lovers Scarlett and Gunnar, plus Gunny’s new guitar-tech girlfriend Erin — hit the road on tour in this Wednesday’s episode (ABC, 10/9c). Scout Taylor-Compton, who plays the no-strings-attached, free-spirited Erin, says her character is blissfully unconcerned with the havoc her presence creates for the duo.

“Gunnar’s trying to move forward, as Scarlett has, and Erin’s a won’t-take-s—t kind of girl,” Taylor-Compton tells TVLine. “She doesn’t really feed into that kind of drama… »
Gilmore Girls has left a lasting legacy—so lasting, in fact, that it's getting a second revival on Netflix. Among the many influences it's had on our culture (like an endless supply of witty banter and a renewed appreciation for small-town traditions), perhaps the most telling is its perspective on family. Rory and Lorelai Gilmore are certainly not the typical American family, what with the small age gap between them and all, but that was precisely why people connected to them so strongly. No offenses to the Home Improvements of television, but there was something so refreshing about watching a show about two extremely well-intentioned people trying (and struggling at times) to make it »
Why didn't it work out between Lorelai and Peyton Sanders again...? If the name means nothing, you're probably not alone, but the one-episode-and-done gentleman who caught Lauren Graham's attention for a minute was played by none other than Jon Hamm. And because he wouldn't be Don Draper for another five years, it was easy to miss the future Emmy winner's stop in Stars Hollow—unless you've tuned in now and again for some repeat visits with your fave mother-daughter duo and thought, "Hey...!" That's going to happen more times than you might expect because, in true Law & Order fashion, Gilmore Girls played host to all sorts of famous or soon-to-be famous faces over its »
25 years ago today, audiences first saw the beloved Christmas comedy movie “Home Alone.” Here’s to a quarter century of kids collecting clever tips on how to outwit would-be burglars, getting spooked by evil furnaces, quoting fictional gangster movies, and (maybe) learning that family is the best gift of all. Directed by Chris Columbus — who would go on to helm the first two “Harry Potter” films — and produced by John Hughes, “Home Alone” became the highest-grossing live action comedy in the U.S. and worldwide after its release in 1990, and it held that record until it was overtaken by “The Hangover: Part II” in 2011. A favorite holiday movie of many, “Home Alone” has secured its place in pop culture with plenty of parodies, with this frightening personalized holiday card, a reference on “Family Guy,” four (mostly ill-advised) sequels, and a John Williams-penned song that’s become a staple of school Christmas concerts. »

‘This is me asking Hollywood to begin giving Kelvin Yu the roles his face deserves. Enough with the stereotypical bit parts’
About five minutes into the second episode of the new Netflix sitcom, Master Of None, a tall drink of water called Brian appeared on screen. I’m using old-timey speak only because these were old-timey attributes in front of me: handsome in that clean, classic way, a lovely deep voice, and thick black hair, styled into submission in a low side parting. I had to find out more.
A quick internet scour gave me a sketchy bio: his name is Kelvin Yu, he’s Taiwanese American, and he’s been in Hollywood a long time (and not just because he’s actually from Los Angeles). How could I have missed him? It turned out I’d seen him before: there he is in two brief scenes in Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip »

Forget burning— is Paris returning?! After news broke that Gilmore Girls would be returning for a four-episode limited series on Netflix and the Internet had a coffee-fueled meltdown, speculation soon began over which beloved characters would return. While it's expected that the big names—Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, and Scott Patterson—will reprise their roles in the revival (in the present-day), other fan favorites' participation in the highly anticipated series is Tbd. So, of course, when E! News caught up with Liza Weil—aka Paris Geller, Rory's (Alexis Bledel) hilariously icy enemy-turned-bff—at the New York Paleyfest event for How to Get Away »
Dan Fogelman’s NBC birthday dramedy has cast five of its eight leads, Variety has confirmed. The potential series will follow a unique group of characters all born on the same day.
The “Heroes” and “Gilmore Girls” alum will play Jack, who’s described as easy-going and happily married to Rebecca, played by Moore. The couple just moved into their new home in Pittsburg and is on the verge of welcoming triplets.
Hartley, best known from his heavily recurring arc on “Revenge,” has been cast in the pilot as Kevin, a handsome and successful television actor with an underlining boredom in his ultimate bachelor life.
Brown (“Army Wives”) will play Randall, a sharply dressed corporate businessman and family man, based in New York, who’s raising his two young daughters with his wife »

A new report suggests that there's going to be a new Gilmore Girl -- or little Mad Man -- coming into the world soon: Alexis Bledel is reportedly pregnant, expecting her first child with husband Vincent Kartheiser.
According to Celebuzz, a source has revealed that Kartheiser is "trying to keep it quiet," but added that the actor is "very happy about the news."
The site reports that the pair's baby news slipped out when friends were "seen congratulating Kartheiser at the world premiere of his new National Geographic Channel movie, 'Saints & Strangers,' in Los Angeles on Monday night." Bledel's rep did not respond to Celebuzz's request for comment.
That's par for the course for the super-private couple, who met on the set of "Mad Men" more than three years ago. While their onscreen characters didn't exactly have a happy ending -- Bledel played a housewife who seduces Kartheiser's Pete Campbell, »

With our High-School-tv Showdown nearing its series finale (this Friday Matt Zoller Seitz will make the final determination), we wanted to provide an update on how our critics' picks are faring against the collective voice of the fans on our Facebook page. In short: poorly. They're faring poorly. The two groups mostly agreed in the first round, though Glee did dispatch critical front-runner Friday Night Lights in the fan polls, and presumed powerhouse My So-Called Life was felled by Vulture-reader front-runner Gossip Girl. The second round, however, went completely off the rails, with Veronica Mars advancing at a point when the critics had it falling to My-So Called Life, Gilmore Girls prevailing over Freaks and Geeks, and 90210 toppling Glee (as opposed to losing to Friday Night Lights). Where does that leave us? Far, far from a consensus: Critics' final four: Friday Night Lights, My So-Called Life, Buffy, Freaks and »

For an in-depth story on the quest to diversify the ranks of television directors, Variety spoke with dozens of industry professionals at all levels and at many companies, and is posting transcripts of a selection of those interviews. (Here are links to the entire series of interviews related to the story on directors and diversity.)
Lesli Linka Glatter has been one of the most in-demand directors in the television industry for years. Now an executive producer and director on “Homeland,” she has directed “Mad Men,” “The West Wing,” “Justified,” “Gilmore Girls,” “NYPD Blue” and “Twin Peaks,” among many other credits. She is also on the board of the Directors Guild of America.
She has written in the past about bias and discrimination in Hollywood, a subject she spoke to Variety about in a phone call from Berlin, where “Homeland” is based this season. This conversation has been edited and condensed. »

Okay, you can put your hands down. (We can't see them.) But, we can see why you opened up your ears to the aforementioned artists -- they blessed us with two of the best teen TV show theme songs in the history of time.
7. "My So-Called Life Theme" From "My So-Called Life" (1994 - 1995)
If high-school angst and nostalgia had theme music, this would be it. No lyrics, just all the feels.
6. 'Where You Lead" From "Gilmore Girls" (2000 - 2007)
The Gilmores arguably have the most "fall as f**k" theme ever made. Which probably explains why we never fast-forward through it during our binge watching sessions. »

Kevin T Porter and Demi Adejuyigbe started their podcast on a whim, but with the show’s revival on Netflix they’ve become a magnet for all things Gilmore
When The Gilmore Guys started it was supposed to be a podcast about two guys watching Gilmore Girls, a TV show that had been off the air for seven years. Kevin T Porter and Demi Adejuyigbe (the titular guys) took a page from Kumail Nanjiani’s X-Files Files, and started making their way through each episode of the series, painstakingly recounting the show’s action, fashions, pop culture references and drama (of the boyfriend, family, career, town, and college ilk). As they neared what could have been the end of the show, something unexpected happened – Netflix announced that they were resurrecting the cult classic for a four-part series slated for 2016. Suddenly, Gilmore Guys was no longer talking about a dead show. »

Last month, Netflix decided the time was ripe to make more Gilmore Girls. Soon after, we got details: Each of the reboot’s four, 90-minute-long “films” will take place during a different season. The announcement was loaded with the implication that show's creator Amy Sherman-Palladino would right the “wrongs” of the final season. This sentiment is nothing new. Over the years, the conversation around Gilmore Girls has often assumed one consensus: The show’s seventh and final season — the only without Sherman-Palladino at the helm — was an unmitigated disaster.The A.V. Club called it “problematic”; the New York Times said the final season had “cut the show’s heart out” and found its central conflicts “a bit of a stretch”; and there’s a Reddit thread dedicated to “The Infamous Season 7.” Prior to the revival announcement, Kevin Porter and Demi Adejuyigbe of Gilmore Guys — a podcast that dissects one »

From late October through mid-November, Vulture is holding a High-School-tv Showdown to determine the greatest teen show of the past 30 years. Each day, a different writer will be tasked with determining the winner of a round of the bracket, until New York Magazine TV critic Matt Zoller Seitz judges the finals on November 13. Today's battle: Nahnatchka Khan judges Freaks and Geeks versus Gilmore Girls. After you read, be sure to visit Vulture's Facebook page to vote on which show should advance. If you look at high school in terms of the amount of actual life spent there, it’s not all that significant in the grand scheme of things. But the effect the experience has on us as a collective is immeasurable. People talk about stuff that happened to them in high school for the rest of their lives, and they do so in a visceral, not-over-it, outwardly I’m-clearly-reliving-something-that-happened-to-me-sophomore-year kind of way. »

Gilmore Girls without Sookie St. James?
That scenario might break your Stars Hollow-loving heart, but alas, it’s one you might have to face when Netflix revives the beloved series with four 90-minute episodes/mini-movies in the very near future. (TVLine reported the revival news late last month, though reps for Netflix and Warner Bros. have yet to comment.)

Granted, negotiations with the show’s primary cast — Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop and Scott Patterson — are still underway. But given that Sookie’s portrayer, Melissa McCarthy, has gone on to »
