There are still twelve months to go before the world gets to see the newest adventures of Charlie Brown in the Peanuts movie, but as is the case with marketing in today’s cinematic climate, audiences are growing to expect teaser materials at least a year in advance. So, after dropping the first trailer earlier this month, 20th Century Fox has now revealed who will be voicing the iconic characters based on Charles M. Schulz’s original comic series.
The cast of characters in the CGI-animated romp all originate from the classic children’s strip comic of the same name. For the first new feature in 35 years involving Charlie, Lucy, Linus, Franklin, Peppermint Patty, Snoopy and Woodstock, the studio has chosen a range of up-and-coming child actors to lend their voices to the much-loved troupe.
It might be considered a gamble to place newcomers into such a well-known franchise, but »

In celebration of Charles Schulz’s (the creator of Peanuts) birthday, 20th Century Fox has announced the voice cast of the upcoming animated film. Take a look below for the name of the actor and what character is he or she playing:
Noah Schnapp voices the role of Good ol’ Charlie Brown, the lovable loser who never gives up. The young actor recently filmed a role opposite Tom Hanks in director Steven Spielberg’s untitled Cold War thriller. Most recently, Noah wrapped work on the indie film We Only Know So Much, based on the book of the same title.
Hadley Belle Miller provides the voice for Lucy, known around the neighborhood (and by her little brother, Linus) for being crabby and bossy and humiliating Charlie Brown. Hadley’s voiceover credits include Sofia the First andJake and the Neverland Pirates, and she has appeared on stage and in commercials.

Charlie Brown, Snoopy and friends look set to take the CG world by storm in their upcoming feature length film, Peanuts. Based on the characters created by Charles M. Schultz for the comic-strip of the same name, Peanuts will see the world through the eyes of the young. Anyone worth their salt will already be planning on fitting A Charlie Brown Christmas into their Christmas schedule, and from the trailer it certainly looks as though the makers are trying to capture the magic of the original strip. As such, a young voice cast has been assembled, which doesn’t include any immediately recognisable names in its ranks, unless you’re a youngling yourself with a keen ear for Disney/Nickelodeon stars.
Here’s the cast, and we’re very happy that stars haven’t been crammed in to slap over posters and TV spots:

While NBC has won a third straight November sweep in adults 18-49 and CBS prevailed yet again in total viewers, the big takeaway from the four-week ratings period was a strong showing by ABC.
The Alphabet, whose “Dancing With the Stars” ended its latest edition Tuesday with the show’s best in-season numbers in two years, retained all of its year-ago 18-49 audience during the month while its rivals were down double-digits, according to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates for 27 of the sweep’s 28 nights.
And by holding steady in same-day numbers — a big accomplishment these days due to ever-increasing levels of time-shifted viewing that is done in the days after a show’s initial telecast — ABC leap-frogged CBS for second place in adults 18-49.
It also opened up a bigger lead on its rivals in non-sports numbers, with its average through Tuesday (2.1/6, even with last year) putting it half »

Season 8 cements its status as the most contemplative run of Big Bang Theory episodes so far with The Champagne Reflection...
This review contains spoilers.
8.10 The Champagne Reflection
A week after commenting on the comparative seriousness of The Big Bang Theory season eight, the show offers up The Champagne Reflection, probably the most contemplative of the season. It didn't have any of those big, character or relationship-defining moments usually present in the show's best episodes, but did have a lot to say about some little things.
There's nothing that can remind you of your mortality more than having someone you relate to pass away, and that's pretty much what Leonard, Howard and Raj's storyline amounts to in the episode. Tasked with clearing out the office of another professor – one who never achieved anything worthy of the champagne his mother had bought him 50 years earlier – the guys ponder how they would feel »

Friends ran on NBC for 10 seasons and saw appearances of Brad Pitt, Bruce Willis, and Susan Sarandon just to name a few. Modern Family, which is currently in its sixth season, has featured Elizabeth Banks, Nathan Lane, and Matthew Broderick. How I Met Your Mother spent nine seasons on CBS.

We asked Den Of Geek’s writers to recommend brilliant comedy shows that deserve to have more of a fuss made about them. Here they are...
Banging a drum about stuff we love is more or less our remit on Den Of Geek - hence what many readers have started referring to as the ‘inexplicably regular' appearance of Statham, squirrels and Harold Bishop from Neighbours on these pages.
To that end then, we asked our writers which comedy shows (past and present, UK or otherwise, on TV, radio, or online…) deserved more praise, and here are the ones they chose. You might already like them too, or you might discover something new to dig out and enjoy. That’s the fun of it.

As Netflix continues to assert itself as a major television company with such acclaimed series as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, Amazon Studios is racing to catch up by ordering series it hopes will be equally well-received. So far, Amazon has scored one big hit in the form of Jeffrey Tambor-led dramedy Transparent, and it hopes to find some more in the new lineup of pilots, which will be made available for viewing as part of the company’s first pilot season of 2015.
Enclosed are descriptions of all seven pilots, courtesy of Deadline. The talented involved on all of them is impressive, to say the least. Mad Dogs comes from Cris Cole (The Bill) and Shawn Ryan (The Shield), while The Man In The High Castle hails from Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files). Carlton Cuse (Lost, The Strain) and Randall Wallace (Braveheart) are behind Point Of Honor, »

Bars have become a popular hangout on many of our favorite shows over the last few decades. The 70’s had the Regal Beagle on Three’s Company, the 80’s had Cheers on the sitcom of the same name, and the 90’s had Moe’s Tavern on The Simpsons. The 21st Century had it own share of hangouts on shows ranging from How I Met Your Mother to Grey’s Anatomy. In 2011, a show debuted on Spike TV called Bar Rescue, where bar expert Jon Taffer visits struggling bars all over the United States. Taffer and his team try to save the establishments from going bankrupt. If you have ever watched this show, you know Jon Taffer has a temper, especially if he is working with a lazy bar staff. We at TV Overmind were wondering which of our favorite TV show bars could use a visit from Mr. Taffer. Here is our… »
