Christine Baranski on ‘The Good Wife’s’ Writing Snub and 5 Other Emmy Nominee Questions

27 August 2015 3:47 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Christine Baranski is nominated for an Emmy for her role on “The Good Wife,”  but the veteran actress thinks the writers of the hit CBS drama deserve a little love from the Television Academy as well. “I find it just extraordinary that ‘The Good Wife’ did not get a nomination and it did not get a writing nomination,” Baranski told TheWrap. “I think it’s been consistently one of the most well-written shows in television.” The actress, who is also nominated in the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category for “The Big Bang Theory,” touched on the possibility of a reunion for. »

27 August 2015 3:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Big Bang Theory ended its highly rated and game changing Season 8 with a nail-biting cliffhanger that has left fans on the edge of their seat all summer. Will they or won't they get married? That is the question everyone has been asking about Leonard and Penny and their impending nuptials. This nagging question has finally been answered. So, please turn back now if you don't want to hear the mother of all spoilers!

Yes! Leonard and Penny are going to officially tie the knot. This news doesn't come from some fan ease-dropping on one of the live tapings.

How 9 prematurely cancelled TV shows would have continued

26 August 2015 7:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Had Freaks And Geeks, Caprica and more not been cancelled, here’s what their showrunners had planned for their futures. Spoilers…

Warning: major spoilers for all shows listed below.

Closure. It’s an important psychological concept. Without closure, it’s difficult to grieve, move on, make peace and nurture your inner Ewok or whatever it is the self-help books tell us. When a TV show is cancelled before its story has been fully told, the result is an unscratchable itch.

That itch can have positive side effects. The creativity for instance, of fanfic and fan art, and the tenacity and camaraderie of doggedly pursued fan campaigns. The less positive side though is, well, not so pretty. Sleepless nights, anxiety at work, a tendency to grasp total strangers by the shoulders with both hands, hot stress-tears streaming down your cheeks, and cry “So did Lois and Clark raise that baby or what? »

Weekly Ratings: ‘Fear the Walking Dead,’ ‘America’s Got Talent’ Set the Pace

26 August 2015 6:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It may be the dog days of summer, but AMC was barking loudly last week with the record-setting premiere of “Fear the Walking Dead.”

The prequel to “The Walking Dead” became the top-rated cable premiere of all time in both adults 18-49 (4.9 rating) and total viewers (10.31 million), according to Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” estimates — topping the scores for every episode from the first two seasons of the original zombie series, which bowed in 2010.

In the demo, Sunday’s premiere rating breaks the previous cable high set in February by AMC’s debut of “Better Call Saul” (3.5 rating, airing behind “Walking Dead”). And in total viewers, “Fear the Walking Dead” leap-frogs the 2008 premiere of TNT’s “Raising the Bar,” which drew 7.7 million viewers.

“Fear” even fares well relative to the top broadcast premieres of late. The 4.9 rating is more than 1 point above this past season’s top hourlong premieres (“How »

The Big Bang Theory Guys Rule the Forbes List of Highest-Paid TV Actors of 2015

25 August 2015 9:07 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Forbes has released its list of best-paid TV actors for 2015, and this year comedy reigns supreme. Eleven of the top 15 earners play in sitcoms, most notably The Big Bang Theory, which boasts four of the top six slots. The show's Jim Parsons leads with $29 million, overtaking last year's king, Ashton Kutcher ($26 million, from 2014), who fell to third. The other dominant show turned out to be Modern Family, which has its four main men all making the cut. Notably, the ghost of McDreamy haunts the list, as well as a couple other dramatic heavyweights (Kevin Spacey and Mark Harmon). Forbes points out that there is a different list for comedians and TV personalities (i.e., Jon Stewart), and that cult figures (i.e., Terrence Howard) don't necessarily have immediate monetary figures that match their light-speed popularity — so keep that in mind when yelling at the list for excluding »

TV Review: ‘The Carmichael Show’

25 August 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Network sitcoms have avoided being topical for such a long time that they have seemingly forgotten how. Perhaps that’s why NBC’s “The Carmichael Show” feels so ungainly, seeking to achieve a balance between tackling timely issues regarding race while allowing plenty of time for jokes about, say, extramarital sex when the central character’s church-going mom strongly objects to it. Over the course of three episodes, some funny moments do emerge, but too often the writing feels as if it’s veering out of its lane to make points instead of doing so organically.

Written by Jerrod Carmichael and Nicholas Stoller (who directed the comic in the movie “Neighbors”), the series stars Carmichael as Jerrod, who has just taken up residence with his girlfriend Maxine (Amber Stevens West). The two are wildly happy, except that he hasn’t broken the news to his parents (David Alan Grier, Loretta Devine »

17 actors impersonating other actors: Leonardo DiCaprio's Jack Nicholson impression is crazy good

24 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

You might think you can do a decent Christopher Walken, but really, you can't touch the professionals. Here, from Kevin Spacey to Steve Coogan, are the very finest impersonators in the business (of other people in the business).

1. Kevin Spacey

Actors impersonated: Katharine Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart, Marlon Brando, Christopher Walken

To know Kevin Spacey is to know his impersonations. Willing to bust out a Brando at the drop of a hat, the former Old Vic head honcho was more than willing to obey James Lipton's commands during his appearance on Inside The Actors Studio.

Ps - there are Kevin Spacey impressions, then there are Kevin Spacey impressions in front of the people he's impersonating. Ladies and gentlemen, Al Pacino and "Al Pacino".

2. Bradley Cooper

Actors impersonated: Robert De Niro, Owen Wilson, Christopher Walken, Christian Bale

Everyone can do a Christopher Walken - even if it's a terrible Christopher Walken »

Television that Home Video Forgot: Twins (2005)

Twins

Showcase Inventory

Created by David Kohan, Max Mutchnick

Produced by KoMut Entertainment, Warner Bros Entertainment

Aired on The WB for 1 season (18 episodes) from September 16, 2005 – March 3, 2006

Cast

Sara Gilbert as Mitchee Arnold

Molly Stanton as Farrah Arnold

Melanie Griffith as Lee Arnold

Mark Linn-Baker as Alan Arnold

Show Premise

Highly successful lingerie company owners and married couple Alan and Lee Arnold decide to retire from their CEO position and name their non identical twin daughters as their successors. The two sisters, Mitchee and Farrah, couldn’t be more different from one another if they tried. Oddly, the two take after their parents almost exactly, with Mitchee taking after her father, who is brainy, uptight, and reserved, while Farrah takes after Lee, an alluring, uninhibited, and seemingly vapid blonde.  It would seem that for the parents, the notion of “opposite attracts” is what brought them together, but for the two sisters, »
