CBS is still the most-watched network but almost all of their established shows are down year-to-year. Plus, none of their new shows can really be considered hits. Which will be cancelled or renewed? Stay tuned!
New CBS shows (so far): The Crazy Ones, Hostages, The Millers, Mom, and We Are Men.
Returning shows (so far): 2 Broke Girls, 48 Hours, 60 Minutes, The Amazing Race, The Big Bang Theory, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Elementary, The Good Wife, Hawaii Five-0, How I Met Your Mother, The Mentalist, Mike & Molly, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Person of Interest, Survivor, Two and a Half Men, and Undercover Boss.
There's lots of data that CBS looks at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are typically the biggest piece. Here's how the network's shows are doing »
What makes a good series finale? Three events this week bring this question into focus: Sunday's "True Blood" series ender, Monday's celebration of the departed "Breaking Bad" at the Emmys, and Wednesday's Vox interview with David Chase, where the "Sopranos" creator finally offered an answer to the question of whether Tony died at the end of the notorious blackout finale of the 1999-2007 series.
All three of these finales, plus others of shows that went off the air this year ("Dexter," "How I Met Your Mother") drew both kudos and complaints. Some fans found these finales satisfying and others found them cheap copouts. It almost makes you sorry for the writers, who seem bound to disappoint some faction of fans, no matter how they choose to wrap things up.
Take "True Blood," for instance. (Warning: Spoilers follow.) Fans who'd been watching since the beginning of the HBO series seven years »

It's almost September, which means a whole new slew of titles on Netflix! August proved pretty lucrative on the quality title front, but it looks as though September it's going to blow the rundown out of the water.
TV takes spotlight this month, with the latest full seasons of "The Walking Dead," "New Girl," "The League," "The Blacklist," "Arrow," "Bones," and "Parks and Recreation" primed and ready for streaming before their fall premieres. And fans still mourning the loss of "How I Met Your Mother" (in more ways than one) can rewatch the ninth and final season to their heart's content. Ah, memories. Showtime's recently departed "Californication" can be seen in its entirety (Seasons 1 -7) as well, starting September 1. That's a lot of TV.

The star tweeted that she will appear in an episode of CBS’ 2 Broke Girls, which is set to air on Monday, Oct. 27. Kardashian did not mention whether she will be playing herself or a new character on the show. Her most recent forays into comedy, both on How I Met Your Mother and a live episode of 30 Rock, however, indicate it will more likely be the former. »

With a little over a month to go before its release, Fox has released a new trailer for Gone Girl, director David Fincher’s (Fight Club, Zodiac) adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s novel of the same name, which sees Ben Affleck (Argo) as a man who may or may not be responsible for the disappearance of his wife, played by Rosamund Pike (Hector and the Search for Happiness). Check it out after the official synopsis…
Gone Girl unearths the secrets at the heart of a modern marriage. On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife? »

Billy Crystals moving tribute to Robin Williams at the EmmysEmmy Awards: full list of winners
A Quick Summary: Breaking Bad won just about everything and everyone cheered. So did Modern Family and everyone grumbled. British people won a whole bunch of awards too for Sherlock and stuff. Barely any of them showed up to get their trophies. Maybe theyre mad that we call it soccer? I dont know. Seth Meyers kinda sucked, Sofia Vergara was turned into a prop, everyone is white and male, and nothing every changes and the Emmys is awful. In other news, the Oscars is only six months away.
Thanks for joining us and goodnight!
Alright everyone, thats it for the Emmys. Enjoy your local news and lets get together next year »

He's no Amy Poelher or Tina Fey (join the club, and that club sucks), but Seth Meyers' opening monologue at the 2014 Emmys still got enough laughs to kick off this atrociously boring (thus far) evening. Why did his bit work so much? All his digs at network television and the TV industry itself. Oh, and one more dig at the How I Met Your Mother finale, because we can never have enough of those. Here's our official ranking of all the jokes Seth Meyers fired off during the Emmys opening: 17. "NBC also decided to hold the Emmys a month early in August to avoid conflicting with Sunday Night Football, which is keeping with the actor's tradition with running away from jocks." 16. »
Hollywood's first awards show of the new season is among us! Tonight marks the 2014 Emmy Awards, bringing all of TV's biggest stars together under one roof to honor some of the best performances of the past year, and along with that, there's plenty of laughs, a few awkward moments and probably some tears. So let's talk about some of the best and worst moments of the show! Best Opening: Host Seth Meyers gave viewers a strong opening, being his playful self and joking about the VMAs, the Emmys schedule change and some of TV's biggest shows—including How I Met Your Mother, Orange Is the New Black and Duck Dynasty—to start the night off. Best Strut: Beyoncé was at »
“NBC decided to hold the Emmys a month earlier, in August,” began host Seth Meyers, about a third of the way through his opening monologue, “to avoid conflicting with Sunday Night Football. Which is keeping with the actors’ tradition of running away from jocks.”
Then he continued, aptly considering the muted response, “Jokes are like nominees: They can’t all be winners.”
That’s certainly true, though Meyers had a decent enough success rate during the evening. These were the best lines of the lot.

Seth Meyers set the bar lower than a Kardashian Q-rating for his debut gig as host of the 2014 Emmy Awards.
“If you can avoid a train wreck, everyone will be happy,” Meyers told Today host Al Roker some 12 hours before he took the stage for a much-scrutinized opening monologue.
So how did the host of NBC’s Late Night fare on TV’s biggest night?
Well… first off, there were no special guests, no dancers, no musical interludes, no stinging/edgy zingers, no pre-taped parodies and no wacky montages.

It looks like CBS is treating its actors pretty well, cha-ching-wise.
Two and a Half Men’s Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer take the No. 1 and No. 2 spots in Forbes’ annual list of highest-paid male TV actors with a respective $26 million and $19 million in annual earnings between June 2013 and June 2014. This will be the third year in a row that Kutcher, whose tech cred recently landed him a gig as a product engineer with Lenovo, has landed the top spot. Cryer, meanwhile, is building upon Two and a Half Men’s monies with a huge book advance for an upcoming »

Charm is a relatively scarce commodity among this year’s new comedies, and “A to Z” has it. A slightly cryptic narration says the show will follow Andrew and Zelda (get it?) and offer “the comprehensive account of their relationship.” Perhaps appropriately, “How I Met Your Mother’s” Cristin Milioti stars opposite Ben Feldman, since this feels — based on first impressions — like the logical heir to that just-departed sitcom in terms of intersplicing unabashed romance, whimsy and the smallest of mysteries into a promising package.
Said mystery resides in the aforementioned narration (delivered by Katey Sagal), which foretells that the duo will date for a little less than nine months. But there are, obviously, a lot of things a couple can do after that length of time, among them “M” (marry) or “B” (break up).
For Andrew (providing “Mad Men” alum Feldman a slightly less neurotic character), who works at an online dating site, »

To avoid a conflict with Sunday Night Football, NBC moved the 2014 Emmy Awards telecast up a month, to August 25. But in swerving clear of the football juggernaut, the Emmys steered right into the lane of the landmark cultural occasion of late August: the MTV VMAs, scheduled for one day prior. It got us thinking: What if we took things to their logical conclusion and handed MTV control of the Emmys, as well? Using categories from both the VMAs and their summertime counterpart, the MTV Movie Awards, we've imagined what would happen if the cable network was in charge of handing »

So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!
In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her! (We promise, we'll watch soon.) For the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, the »

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots. I know some people will be all "These are reviews." If you've read me, you've read my reviews and you know this isn't what they look like.] Show: "A to Zed" (NBC) The Pitch: "When Ginsberg Met The Mother" Quick Response: In my Tmttp entry for "Manhattan Love Story," I wrote "I'll watch a love story in which I kinda like the idea that the two main characters might find happiness together." Proving that it's not like I'm asking the moon, I give you "A to Z," a new comedy that I don't find especially funny, but because I like Ben Feldman's Andrew and I like Cristin Milioti's Zelda, I'm prepared to make at least a moderate commitment here. Basically just "500 Days of Summer" filtered with a little "How I Met Your Mother" "A to Z" is a more-than-slightly twee story about a romantic pairing drawn together by fate, but seemingly doomed to be separated in "8 months, three weeks, five days and one hour," or at least that's the assumption we make based on Katey Sagal's opening voiceover, »

Saturday Night Live had a good Saturday night: The show won five awards — more than any other program — at the annual Creative Arts Emmys, held August 16 in L.A.

The Primetime Emmy Awards air August 25. See the full list of Creative Arts Emmys winners below:
