Sadie Stone might have left Nashville before the end of the season, but Laura Benanti‘s heart is firmly ensconced in the ABC drama’s goings-on.
Take, for instance, her thoughts on Deacon’s sister Beverly, a hard-to-love character who grudgingly donated part of her liver to her ailing brother and who might have died at the end of the season finale.
“That beyotch!” Benanti says, chuckling. “Ugh, she’s so crazy. I hate her!” She calls out the title of Scarlett’s ballad of pain, inspired by Beverly’s borderline abusive mothering. ‘Black Roses! Black Roses!'”

As it closes in on its second consecutive season-long victory in the key adult 18-49 demographic, NBC unveils a new 2015-16 primetime schedule that combines popular returning series, edge-of-your-seat new dramas, inventive new comedies and season nine of the Emmy Award-winning musical competition series The Voice. NBC is on track to win the traditional September-to-May primetime season in adults 18-49 for the second year in a row after having gone the prior 10 years without an 18-49 win. Through 32 completed weeks of the season, NBC also ranks #1 or tied for #1 among the Big 4 networks in adults and men 18-34 and men and women 18-49.
In total viewers, NBC is running #2 for the season and within 7% of its year-ago Olympics-boosted average (8.8 million vs. 9.5 million), making this season and last NBC's two top-scoring seasons in total viewers since 2006-07. NBC has won the last three November sweeps in adults 18-49, as well as »

8.24 The Commitment Determination
In a mixed eighth season of The Big Bang Theory, when even the best shows can be expected to start showing their age, the big achievement has been Sheldon. I don't always think that, as with all the praise, fan-love and awards doled out to the character, he can sometimes be the series' biggest flaw but, in this season at least, he's been a great demonstration of its commitment to evolution.
Sitcoms don't need to progress – it's sometimes detrimental to their popularity for them to change too much – but The Big Bang Theory has never subscribed to the adage that it need not develop its characters. Sheldon, due to his personality as much as the genre he exists within, is »

We're suddenly very excited to see Cobie Smulders on the big screen. In addition to appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron currently, the How I Met Your Mother alum has two indies coming up that look wonderful. Up first comes the romantic comedy Results, then Unexpected. The trailer for the latter just dropped, and it's charming. Smulders plays a high school teacher who gets unexpectedly pregnant, so she and her boyfriend get married . . . because that's what you're supposed to do, right? While trying to figure out what this new baby will mean for her life, she befriends one of her students, who is also pregnant. There are some endearing moments; it looks like this movie is going to tug at your heartstrings. Unexpected is set to be released in theaters and on demand on July 24. »
“I thought it could be just a very moving story about women, about the decision to have children,” Cobie Smulders said earlier this year about her upcoming indie “Unexpected.” “And from my side of the story, the decision of career versus motherhood, and trying to juggle those. At the same time, these two women are having the same experience, but under very different circumstances. The juxtaposition of that is very interesting to watch play out.” You may know Smulders as Maria Hill in the Marvel films, or in from the CBS sitcom “How I Met Your Mother,” but she’s beginning to carve out an interesting indie career for herself too. At Sundance, she had two films in the line-up: Andrew Bujalski’s “Results” and Kris Swanberg’s “Unexpected.” The latter is seemingly a simple, stripped-down story of an an inner-city high school teacher who bonds with one of her »

America Ferrera, Ben Feldman, and Patrick Warburton all got new gigs today, as NBC picked up two new sitcoms to series. Superstore stars Ferrera and Feldman as workers at a Walmart-style retailer who "tackle the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales and nap-worthy training sessions" while presumedly being forbidden from unionizing. Crowded sees Warburton and True Blood's Carrie Preston as empty-nesters who suddenly find their house full up when their millennial daughters (Miranda Cosgrove and Mia Serafino) and elderly parents all move back in. So that's an Office-like workplace sitcom, a multi-generational family comedy in the style of CBS; add them to the How I Met Your Mother–style People Are Talking, and it's clear that the Peacock is trying to get out of its sitcom recession by any means necessary. »

If the departure of How I Met Your Mother left you with a yearning for shows that are half single-cam, half multi-cam, NBC just picked up the show for you: People Are Talking, which is not a Harry Nilsson biopic, but instead a half-hour sitcom that follows two "wildly outspoken" couples who have long conversations about "sex and race, [and] the fact that the trusted new babysitter might just be a porn star." Those couples will be made up of Frankin & Bash's Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Being Human's Meaghan Rath, Whitney's Tone Bell, and Grey's Anatomy's Bresha Webb; Himym vet Pam Fryman is directing the pilot. Will there be flashbacks? »

Mark-Paul Gosselaar is headed back to NBC. The network has given a series order to the actor’s new comedy People Are Talking. People Are Talking‘s pilot was written by DJ Nash (Growing Up Fisher), who will also serve as an executive producer on the series along with Ride Along producer Will Packer and the pilot’s director Pam Fryman (How I Met Your Mother). The series is an “unabashed” new comedy about two diverse couples who are both neighbors and best friends. As they go through life side-by-side, they can’t help but analyze and obsess about everything. From topics like sex and race, to the fact that the trusted new babysitter might just be a porn star, nothing is out of bounds for this wildly outspoken foursome. In addition to Gosselaar, whose last major TV gig was the TNT law series Franklin & Bash, People Are Talking‘s »
