Emmy predictions: Will Michael J. Fox finally win Best Drama Guest Actor for 'The Good Wife'?

10 September 2015 3:45 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Michael J. Fox has proven to be an Emmy favorite throughout his three-decade television career, winning five awards from 17 nominations. However, he has been defeated in all three of his previous Best Drama Guest Actor bids for his recurring role as attorney Louis Canning on "The Good Wife." Will he break that losing streak at Saturday's Creative Arts Emmys? -Break- A victory would move Fox into third place in Emmy history for performance wins, tying him with Art Carney, Tim Conway, Tyne Daly, Allison Janney, and Carl Reiner. Edward Asner and Mary Tyler Moore are in second place with seven wins apiece while the all-time leader is Cloris Leachman with eight prime-time acting trophies. Fox's first three Emmys were as Best Comedy Actor for "Family Ties" (1986, 1987, 1988). He won that race again for his final season of "Spin City" (1999). His fifth win was in this guest category in 2009 for a role on "Rescue Me. »

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll: Season One Ratings

17 July 2015 8:44 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Denis Leary found success with his Rescue Me sitcom. The series lasted for seven seasons and 93 episodes of FX. How will Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll perform in the ratings? Will it be renewed for a second season or, will it be cancelled instead? We'll have to wait and see.

On the Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll TV show, a fictional band from New York City in the 1990s was on the brink of becoming famous with the drop of their first album. The band broke up -- thanks to some infidelity -- and have now been reunited with the promise of a second chance. The series stars Leary, John Corbett, Elizabeth Gillies, Bobby Kelly, Elaine Hendrix, and John Ales.

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll: Will You Raise a Lighter for Denis Leary's New Gig?

16 July 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

When you think Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll frontman Johnny Rock, think Mick Jagger without the mindbending fame. Bono without the gravitas. Steven Tyler without the scarves. David Bowie without the longevity.

In fact, take just about any classic rock band’s lead singer and disregard the wealth and stardom, and you’re left with Johnny (played by Rescue Me‘s Denis Leary), the hard-partying face of the 1990s band The Heathens.

Denis Leary Talks Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, Stupid Band Fights, and Arguing With Jon Stewart

16 July 2015 1:39 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Nearly four years after wrapping his acclaimed firefighting drama Rescue Me, Denis Leary is back on FX in a much different role. On the comedy Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll he plays Johnny Rock, a washed-up, substance-abusing singer whose heralded '90s band broke up the day of their debut album's release. Thanks to the sudden appearance of a daughter he never knew he had, Johnny tries to get the band back together, and things unfold from there. Featuring cameos by Dave Grohl, Joan Jett, and the Afghan Whigs' Greg Dulli, as well as live performances by Leary and his co-stars, the show mines some great, true stories from rock-and-roll history and shows how dysfunctional even the not-so-famous bands can be. Vulture caught up with the 57-year-old Leary to talk about his egomaniacal character, the dangers of acting like a rock star, and how he and Jon Stewart have been fighting »

Questions&answers about Denis Leary's creepy comedy 'Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll'

15 July 2015 2:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Questions I have after watching two episodes of "Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll," the new FX comedy created by and starring Denis Leary, which debuts tomorrow night at 10: In what year does this show think it takes place? Leary plays Johnny Rock, former lead singer of The Heathens, a band that had a meteoric rise and abrupt fall in the early '90s. Dave Grohl appears early in the pilot to explain that The Heathens were a huge inspiration for Nirvana. But Johnny, in both past and present, sports a rooster haircut that hasn't been fashionable since Rod Stewart and Ron Wood abandoned it in the mid-'70s. The Heathens' signature song, which provides the show its title (albeit one borrowed from a much better song — also from the '70s — by Ian Dury) is catchy, but sounds like a mix of punk and glam rock that had little place »

'Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll': TV Review

14 July 2015 10:34 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Sometimes a TV series comes along with a premise that seems perfect for the times. FX’s superb, funny and wonderfully spot-on Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, created by and starring Denis Leary, is that kind of series: a show that channels Leary’s searing sense of humor and cultural awareness into a package that’s more entertaining and less of a heavy lift than FX's excellent but challenging Rescue Me. Maybe it’s thanks to Leary’s clear lifelong love of rock (he writes all the music here) or that, turning 58 in August, he has cast himself perfectly as the aging rock-star-who-wasn’t-quite-a-

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll Season 1 Review

14 July 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Five episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll is pretty damning evidence that the narcissist is killing television. From the bizarrely popular Two and a Half Men to the thankfully short-lived Weird Loners, there seems to be a constant flow of unlikable, self-absorbed assholes leading half-hour comedies, with show creators across all networks seemingly convinced that the most endearing trait a sitcom character can possess is consummate unpleasantness (yes, HBO, you too, don’t think for a second that Girls is growing on us). FX’s latest is the natural end-point of this unfortunate small-screen phenomenon: a series populated entirely by painfully unlikeable people, and that’s (funnily enough) painfully unlikeable itself.

Riffing on the age-old idea that the best rock ‘n’ roll bands were typically the ones that nearly killed themselves on a nightly basis with a toxic cocktail of substance abuse, hard alcohol and licentious behavior, »

Video: Denis Leary Bangs the Drum for Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, Picks Ausiello as the Next Jimmy Fallon

12 July 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

When Denis Leary stopped by TVLine’s Comic-Con Suite at the Hard Rock Hotel, he thought he was just going to plug his upcoming FX series, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, and that would be that. Instead, he found himself getting sucked in by the “judgmental and disappointment vibes” that he got from our founder and Eic, Michael Ausiello.

‘Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll’ Review: Denis Leary’s FX Return Full Of Laughs & Heart

9 July 2015 12:37 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

With all the anti-heroes and hardcore nut cases crowding TV these days, Denis Leary’s new FX comedy is a much-needed lambasting of the hard-living life — complete with the hangover of consequences. As I say in my video review above, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll is really funny and quite touching too. Leary created and wrote the half-hour series, which has been percolating since the last days of the network's Rescue Me back in 2011. Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll lights up the life of Johnny… »
