To sum up how the major television awards went down in 2011, it would be that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Voting for the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences kept honoring AMC’s Mad Men and ABC’s Modern Family at the Primetime Emmys. Ushering in the new in November, the Academy’s Board of Governors elected Warner Bros Television Group President Bruce Rosenblum as its new Chairman/CEO. He’ll have to navigate invigorating the telecast for 2012 and beyond. The year also found some encouraging signs for the broadcast networks in terms of the Emmys. Just when it seemed that cable’s quality advantage had rendered ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox to a supporting role, the nets mounted a comeback in September. There were five wins for Modern Family; acting triumphs for comedy leads Jim Parsons of CBS’s The Big Bang Theory and Melissa McCarthy »

After rekindling their romance, do you think Minka Kelly and Derek Jeter will tie the knot? Minka Kelly and Derek Jeter shocked the world when they split up last August, but the sexy couple has officially rekindled their three year relationship this winter. In fact, they even spent the week in Paris, France -- how romantic! An eyewitness at the Musée d'Orsay where Derek, 37, and Minka, 31, visited Dec. 29 told Life & Style, "They had a guide taking them around on the fifth floor, and they were looking at Monet and the works of other French impressionists." The source added, "They went to all the different floors; they looked at Van Gogh. Derek was very low-key and was wearing a black-and-gray sweater. Minka looked very pretty. She was wearing white jeans, a brown jacket and boots." Everyone was expecting Derek to propose to the Friday Night Lights star last summer, but maybe »

We've told you about our favorite guilty TV pleasures of 2011, and we've highlighted some of the underrated performances of the year. But what about the the stuff we just flat-out liked?
"The Vampire Diaries" - "Klaus": It took the better part of Season 2 to meet the ultimate bad guy threatening our favorite Mystic Falls residents, but it was so worth the wait. In "Klaus," we finally met the evil half-vampire, half-werewolf hybrid played by sexy Brit Joseph Morgan. And since the introduction happened via flashback, there was plenty of long, luxurious medieval hair to go around. Plus: Clueless Aunt Jenna finally (Finally) found out about the vampires in her midst. Although it wasn't as sensational as some of the series' other episodes, »

And we’re back with my fourth and final post in a series looking at some of the year’s best TV. In previous weeks I’ve sung the praises of FX’s Louie, HBO’s Game of Thrones, and AMC’s Breaking Bad. This week I’ll be gushing about NBC and Directv’s dearly departed football drama Friday Night Lights.
One Wednesday night this past February I sat on the floor for an hour at a loud sports bar just east of Union Square in Manhattan. Three-hundred-and-sixty-four days out of the year, this place would not have not been my scene. But tonight, they were screening “Always”, the Friday Night Lights series finale. Live, on a big screen, with free beer. Now before I get into just how good a TV show has to be to inspire a bar like this to give out free beer, here’s »

After the end of Friday Night Lights, it was revealed that there were plans to make a feature film version of the beloved series, one that would continue the TV show's storylines. Following his Emmy win for Best Writing for a Drama, executive producer Jason Katims said that he was breaking down the story.
Star Connie Britton said, "Pete [Berg] is totally fired up to do it and I know Jason Katims is talking about writing a script. I think it's really a matter of... getting everyone's busy schedules aligned and making it happen. It kind of feels like there's a lot of commitment to it."
Now it seems that interest may have cooled down a bit.
During a recent interview about FX's American Horror Story, Britton gave TVLine a little update on the status of the movie. She said, "I »

"Those characters? Their stories are done!"
Last night saw the Season 1 finale of American Horror Story satisfyingly wrap up the plight of the Harmon Family, with Ben (Dylan McDermott), Vivien (Connie Britton), and Violet (Taissa Farmiga) becoming ghosts determined to keep any future residents from staking a claim in their infamous Murder House.
There was no cliff hanger, and with the main cast dead, it has left many fans asking, "What's next for American Horror Story Season 2?"
Today, show creator Ryan Murphy and FX Network President John Landgraf took a conference call to discuss their plans for future seasons of American Horror Story, for the first time announcing that the series has always intended to be an anthology, not unlike Tales from the Crypt or The Twilight Zone. Only here, each new story will span an entire season as opposed to being contained in a single episode.
Ryan Murphy went »
Attention American Horror Story fans: hope you didn’t get too attached to the Harmon mansion and most of its inhabitants. Creator Ryan Murphy told reporters today that season 2 of the hit FX drama will begin with a new locale and a (mostly) new cast.
That means fans may — or may not — get another fix from stars like Jessica Lange, Dylan McDermott, and Connie Britton when the drama returns next year. “Some of them will be coming back,” Murphy teased during a teleconference today. “I’m talking to several of them and we’re in negotiations. There will be familiar faces, »

This is the fifth in a multi-part series, The Year in Television 2011.
Tastes in television can of course be very subjective. One show may be your cup of tea, but not for the person sitting next to you. For instance, I love Louie, but my husband can’t stand it. I thought Torchwood: Miracle Day was a yawner, and yet the show seemed to have its vocal fans right here on AfterElton.
But where reasonable people can differ on any number of shows, the list below we can probably All agree on. These are the true TV stinkers of 2011. Now there probably were worse shows in 2011 than what appears on this list (H8R for instance), but all the projects appearing below added insult to injury: they might actually have been good. Our list includes the new shows that totally botched a decent concept... or squandered a good cast. And »

To remake Sam Raimi's Evil Dead is one thing, to do without Bruce Campbell as Ash, or not even having the character of Ash is a scary concept. This remake will focus on a female this time around, one that is suffering with a drug addiction, and her brother along with friends take the troubled girl to a secluded cabin. There in the cabin one of the friends reads from the Book of the Dead and releases a demon. According to the website Destroy the Brain two actresses have auditioned for roles in the film. There is no word if they both auditioned for the drug addicted sister, Mia, or another role. Although they both could've auditioned for separate parts. Evil DEADThanks to our inside sources, Destroy the Brain can confirm that actress Jurnee Smollett (Friday Night Lights, The Great Debaters) and actress Gillian Jacobs (Community, The Box, Choke »
You probably guessed NBC would promote The Voice during its Super Bowl coverage, but not like this: The network is going big with a special The Voice Super Bowl ad from Friday Night Lights and Battleship director Peter Berg.
The 60-second ad is titled “Vokal Kombat” and plays off an element of The Voice that’s unique to the NBC singing competition: The judges’ swivel chairs that turn to face a contestant during the auditions when a judge hears a performer they believe is deserving of a spot on the show. Of course, if more than one judge turns around to face the stage, »

Though there has been a lot of attention paid to what the story, structure, and tone of Sam Raimi’s produced remake of The Evil Dead will be, we haven’t heard much in regards to who might be the unfortunate inhabitants who unleash the curse over the cabin. The reason we haven’t heard any names as of yet is because they are still casting. Given the amount of attention and pressure placed on the film, I’m sure that director Fede Alvarez and his crew want to get just the right person for the lead. It has already been previously revealed that Bruce Campbell’s character of “Ash” is going to be replaced with a female lead. Given their attempt to not draw too many comparisons to the original cult classic, I admit that this is probably a good decision. Well, now we have a few names that »
