"666 Park Avenue" was one of the biggest disappointments of the last TV season - both for viewers story-wise and for ABC ratings-wise. But fans of the show will finally have some closure when the network begins airing the remaining four episodes on Saturday, June 22nd.
Per TVLine the ill-fated spooker, which ABC pulled from the schedule following its December 2, 2012 broadcast, will reward loyal viewers with a finale on July 13. Speaking with the site recently, series star Rachael Taylor gave the final episode two very enthusiastic thumbs up, saying, “I love the ending. Everything gets completely flipped on its head, and it was very fun for me to play. My character is very different in the last episode. I’m really looking forward to people seeing the end, because shit gets crazy.”
At the ominous address of 666 Park Avenue, anything you desire can be yours. Everyone has needs, desires, and ambition. »

The next time we see the dearly deceased – via video tape – he’s outlining the terms of his will for his three adult children, all of whom had been estranged from their father for some time.

What a difference a year makes.
Last year at this time, we were excited that actor Michael Urie was going to be back on our televisions in the CBS sitcom, Partners. Unfortuantely the series premiered last fall to not-so-great reviews and low ratings, so CBS pulled it quickly.
Not one to be down and out for long, Urie is busy promoting his directorial film debut, He’s Way More Famous Than You, which was written by Halley Feiffer and Urie’s partner Ryan Spahn and co-stars Jesse Eisenberg, Vanessa Williams, Mamie Gummer, Ben Stiller and Ralph Macchio. The former Ugly Betty star also is wowing audiences off-Broadway with his one-man show Buyer & Cellar. The Jonathan Tollins play about a young man who takes a job at Barbra Streisand‘s underground personal mall (and meets the lady herself) did so well in its initial run that it’s moving to a larger theater beginning next month. »

SNL castmember Jay Pharoah on Sunday tweeted (then quickly deleted) some sentiments that all but confirmed the third exit, stating: “Hader, Armisen & Sudekis the talent of those three and just them as people in general will be missed but we will be strong and carry on..” (Favstar captured the tweet before it was removed.)
NBC has yet to confirm or deny any Sudeikis-departure rumors, though »

Having appeared in such projects as the HBO series "Bored to Death" and the Noah Baumbach films "Margot at the Wedding" and "The Squid and the Whale," actress Halley Feiffer is way more famous than a lot of people. That just doesn't necessarily translate to Twitter.
"I really don't have that many Twitter followers, which I'm really sad about," Feiffer, 28, joked during a recent interview with HuffPost Entertainment. "I really want people to think I'm more famous, and that happens when you have more Twitter followers."
That could happen soon enough. Feiffer co-wrote and stars in the indie comedy "He's Way More Famous Than You," a caustic film about Feiffer's alcoholic alter ego, an actress also named Halley Feiffer. Directed by former "Ugly Betty" star Michael Urie (who also appears as "himself" in the film) and featuring cameo appearances from Jesse Eisenberg and Ben Stiller, "He's Way More Famous Than You »

In case you haven’t noticed, graduation season is in full effect. And at age 29, America Ferrera can now proudly say that she’s a USC alum. That’s right, the Ugly Betty vet has earned her bachelor’s degree after 10 years of hard work.
Ferrera started her college studies back in 2002. But TV shows, movies and a busy social life prevented her from finishing in her early 20s. Nevertheless America persisted and after taking individual courses throughout the years, she finally snagged a diploma.
“I’m walking in my college graduation in 3 days from @USCDornsife!” she proudly Tweeted this week. “It’s finally happening! Took me 10 years, but it feels great.”
Ferrera went on to thank a few inspirational professors who helped her along the way. Let’s hope we get a few Twitpix of her decked out in the fancy cap and gown.

Remember “Ben & Kate,” the sweet little comedy about oddball siblings Fox aired — and pretty quickly canceled — earlier this season? Turns out the network developed a logical single-camera companion to the show, which should provide small comfort to “The Goodwin Games,” a series from the creators of “How I Met Your Mother” being rather conspicuously burned off in the summer heat. Mildly charming but exceptionally thin, it makes it hard to fault Fox for its lack of faith. So let the “Games” begin, but don’t expect many to wind up carrying a torch for it.
The series hinges on a trio of completely unbelievable siblings, reunited by the death of their father (Beau Bridges, in full mad-scientist mode). As if plucked from “Gilligan’s Island,” they include a buttoned-up doctor (Scott Foley), an actress (“Ugly Betty’s” Becki Newton) and a nincompoop thief (T.J. Miller) freshly paroled from prison.

Already missing your television faves after all the season finales this week? Then it’s time to get obsessed with some new summer shows. Fox’s The Goodwin Games premiered online today ahead of its official May 20 release. The pilot, from the creators of How I Met Your Mother, is streaming now on Hulu. After watching the first episode, I’m curious to see where the story, about three grown-up siblings playing an elaborate game to compete for their recently deceased dad’s fortune, goes from here: What will the next challenge of the game be?

MundoFox, the Spanish-lingo broadcast net launched last summer by Fox in partnership with Colombia’s Rcn, is plowing ahead with a slew of new novels and other series for its second season despite a slow start in the increasingly competitive Hispanic TV ratings race.
Along with a slew of telenovelas, projects coming to MundoFox will be a Spanish-lingo spin on “The X Factor” (“El Factor X”), segs of FX’s new immigration-themed drama “The Bridge,” starring Demian Bichir, and “The Golden Boys,” a boxing docu-drama series produced by Mario Lopez and Oscar de la Hoya. MundoFox’s upfront announcement reinforced Fox and Rcn’s commitment to the network, which is designed to court U.S.-born Hispanics who consider themselves bi-cultural, or “All-American Latinos.”
“We have supercharged the network with an expanded number of original programs that are universally relevant, bring up the Mexican flavor and put on the network »

America Ferrera is graduating from university after 10 years. The 'Ugly Betty' actress first enrolled at the University of Southern California in 2002, but her burgeoning acting career - including the lead role in the hit comedy show - forced her to put her academic ambitions on the backburner until now. America is set to graduate with a bachelor's degree in international relations from USC Dornsife - the Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences - on May 17 and is ecstatic that she will finally get to don a graduation hat and gown. She wrote on Twitter: 'I'm walking in my college graduation in 3 days from @USCDornsife! It's finally happening! Took me 10 years, but »

Reports out of the UK —which, we must say, can rarely be trusted— claim that Will and Jada Smith‘s eldest child, son Jaden, wants to be emancipated from his parents. He’s only 15, but that’s clearly old enough to have learned that parents just don’t understand. [Nydn] Police have opened an investigation into a fan who tweeted Disney star Ashley Tisdale more than 18,000 times. The messages, some of which expressed undying love, appeared to come from a male Twitter follower. The fan allegedly also showed up at Tisdale’s home.

After struggling for years to launch a new drama on Thursdays 8 p.m., ABC is turning to almost sure-thing Wonderland-themed Once Upon a Time spinoff to open the night. The move comes after ABC looked to lure men in the pre-Grey's Anatomy position with Shawn Ryan's since-canceled Last Resort, which despite critical praise failed to move forward. The network has struggled to launch a hit in the slot since Ugly Betty moved from the 8 p.m. hour in 2009. In the years since, the time period -- dubbed "the black hole" -- has featured short-lived efforts including

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the first announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on NBC.
The Peacock did not have a good year. Only one of its new shows, "Revolution," was a true hit. Another, "Chicago Fire," got renewed by the skin of its teeth whilst the fate of a third, "Hannibal," remains uncertain.
None of last year's new comedies survived, neither did two mid-season dramas, which leaves the network with some big holes to fill. Three dramas and three comedies will debut in the Fall ahead of three more dramas and two comedies mid-season. Two further dramas and a comedy are presently unscheduled.
Several other pilots didn't make the final cut and won't become series including the high-profile Charlize Theron-produced drama about the Hatfields and McCoys, the Bruckheimer-produced »
