She began by asking Huck to kill him — you know, the way you might ask a friend to pick you up at the airport if it’s not too much of an inconvenience — but that mission quickly proved… problematic. In a moment of uncharacteristic honesty, Rowan came clean to Huck (in damn public!) and insisted that everything he did was at the behest of the

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 2 Episode 11 Review: Josh Is the Man of My Dreams, Right?

  • TVfanatic
You ruined everything, you stupid...

Nope. I don’t think Rebecca, nor the winds, ruined anything.

When the “winds of Diablo” blew their way through West Covina on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 2 Episode 11, everyone re-evaluated their choices.

And I think everyone ended up right where they belong.

Things got a little weird during an hour that shifted the direction of the series, so let’s start talking about it!

You might say, 'Don't do it, Winds! Leave these poor people alone!' But I'm a prankster. Tee-hee-hee-heeeee. I just wanna see what will happen.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Are Making it Hard for the Networks to Launch Fall TV

Every four years, the networks must launch their new fall shows right in the middle of a presidential campaign. It’s never easy. This year, it may be nearly impossible.

“The entire marketplace is loud because of a political conversation taking place at the exact same time you’re trying to have an entertainment conversation,” said Andy Kubitz, ABC Entertainment’s executive vice president of program planning and scheduling. “And this year it’s even magnified by the bully pulpit of some of the candidates and makes it a little more difficult to get our message out there.”

In other words, the carnival nature of Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton has become must-see TV – and that threatens to distract viewers from watching actual primetime TV, or even paying attention to what’s coming to the small screen. “You can’t get away from the Trump-ism of the world,” Kubitz said.

Fresh Off the Boat’s Nahnatchka Khan on the Show’s Impressive Ratings, Constance Wu, and How She’s Dealt With Eddie Huang’s Criticisms
Before it premiered last month, Fresh Off the Boat was looking like it was going to be the latest in a long line of Critically Admired ABC Comedies With Suboptimal Nielsen Ratings, such as Happy Endings, Cougar Town, and Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23. The network slotted the show Tuesdays at 8 p.m., opposite ratings juggernauts The Voice and NCIS, and with no established comedies around it to attract audiences. And yet, thanks to those rave reviews and great marketing by ABC — the network aired two episodes on its top-rated Wednesday comedy block before it landed on Tuesday — Boat has more than managed to stay afloat. It’s averaging over 7 million viewers each week and is drawing solid ratings with younger viewers. Season two isn’t assured, but it’s looking more and more likely (despite the misgivings of the real Eddie Huang, whose memoir inspired the

Read an Annotated Excerpt From Adam Rapp’s Novel Know Your Beholder
Adam Rapp is perhaps best known as a playwright, having earned a Pulitzer Prize nomination for his 2006 work Red Light Winter. But he's one of these creative polymaths who seems to excel at everything he does--whether its film directing (Winter Passing, with Zooey Deschanel) or screenwriting (he's written for the L Word and In Treatment, among other shows). Now, he's trying his hand at a still relatively new form. Though Rapp has written a handful of Ya books, Know Your Beholder, which tells the story of a shattered rock musician trying to rebuild his life, is his second attempt at a novel in the classic sense. Here is the first chapter, with annotations from Rapp. Part One: Small-Town Snow I haven’t left my house in almost a month.

It may be hard to believe but, we here at BollySpice, do watch other shows created outside of our beloved Bollywood and we recently came across a fabulous show on ABC. For the last 4 weeks, audiences have been treated to the madcap, medieval, magical, musical comedy adventure Galavant. The hysterically funny, fall off your chair show was a big hit!

The incredible eclectic cast included Joshua Sasse as Galavant, Karen David as Princess Isabella Maria Lucia Elizabetta of Valencia, Luke Youngblood as Sid, Vinnie Jones as Gareth, Mallory Jansen as Madalena and Timothy Omundson as King Richard. The show also boasted guest spots by stars like John Stamos, Hugh Bonneville, ”Weird Al” Yankovic, Ricky Gervais, and Rutger Hauer.

Tff 2014: ‘Loitering With Intent’ Interviews

Pulitzer Prize finalist and well known playwright Adam Rapp has just directed a film he didn’t write. While many people do this all the time, Rapp has always directed his own work, from Red Light Winter which was a Pulitzer Prize finalist to even Winter Passing and In Treatment.

Loitering With Intent, although directed by Rapp, is written by Ivan Martin (who previously worked with Rapp on Winter Passing) and Michael Godere, with both acting within the film as lead characters Raphael and Dominic respectively. In addition to the writing/acting duo, Marissa Tomei stars as Gigi, Dominic’s sister, with Sam Rockwell playing Wayne, Gigi’s boyfriend, and Gigi’s friend Ava is played by Isabelle McNally.

The plot centers on aspiring screenwriters Dominic and Raphael who have been given the chance of a lifetime to work with a film producer willing to give them a shot. They

Film Review: ‘Loitering With Intent’

Film Review: ‘Loitering With Intent’
Whoever instructs aspiring screenwriters to “write what you know” really ought to accept some blame for the overabundance of movies about struggling artists in New York. “Loitering With Intent” is simply the latest in a string of pointless low-budget exercises in angsty Big Apple self-reflection. At least in this case, writers-producers-stars Michael Godere and Ivan Martin have a couple of talented pals — namely Marisa Tomei and Sam Rockwell — to help them out. Nevertheless, B.O. prospects for this 2014 Tribeca Film Festival premiere look extremely limited in a modest Jan. 16 release. Already available on VOD for a month prior, they pic won’t loiter in theaters for long.

Friends and frustrated actors Raphael (Martin) and Dominic (Godere) hear from a well-connected pal (Natasha Lyonne in a fleeting cameo) that a producer has some money to burn. That’s as good a reason as any for the pair to head out for
