6 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

CBS' The Big Bang Theory returned to its Thursday time slot with a massive bang in the form of an Oscar winner and Emmy nominee. After revealing that he was a fan of the comedy from exec producers Chuck Lorre, Bill Prady and Steve Molaro, Billy Bob Thornton guest starred during Thursday's "The Misinterpretation Agitation" episode. And while Thornton's performance as a sad urologist to the stars will likely earn the Fargo alum a guest actor in a comedy Emmy nomination, the best part of Thursday's episode was the fact that it was largely kept under wraps.

Three Very Big Secrets From the Set of ‘The Big Bang Theory’

13 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Et sat the cast down to talk set secrets and baby gossip.

TV's number one comedy The Big Bang Theory kicked off its eighth season this year, and Et's Kevin Frazier was on set to get some juicy gossip from the show's stars.

#1: Is Kaley Pregnant?

Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco, who play engaged couple Leonard and Penny on the show, talked with Frazier about their on-screen relationship, but the conversation quickly turned to Cuoco's real-life romance.

The actress married tennis player Ryan Sweeting at the end of last year, and baby rumors are beginning to fly.

"I knew I shouldn’t have worn this!" Cuoco laughed about her choice of a loose draped blouse, as pregnancy talk started immediately.

"The short haircut isn’t helping the pregnancy rumors by the way," Galecki teased, pointing out Cuoco's new pixie cut.

The actress fired back, "What does that mean?"

Galecki attempted to answer, "I don't know »

Jon Stewart: I was approached to host 'Meet the Press' but didn't take it seriously

18 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jon Stewart confirms he was approached to host "Meet the Press," but he didn't take NBC's offer seriously "My guess is they were casting as wide and as weird a net as they could,” Stewart tells Rolling Stone. "I'm sure part of them was thinking, 'Why don't we just make it a variety show?’” Stewart also says that he thinks Stephen Colbert might be even better when he takes over from Letterman. "Untethered from his character, I think he'll actually have more room and really be able to deliver in a way that's going to surprise people,” says Stewart. E! extends Joel McHale’s “The Soup” deal through 2016 McHale will continue hosting the weekly comedy show, while also coming up reality projects for the network.

Review: ‘Showrunners: The Art Of Running a TV Show’

23 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show” should probably be required viewing in film/TV studies classes, but as a mass-consumption documentary, it doesn’t quite pass the test. Much of that has to do with a lack of focus, inasmuch as it offers a snapshot of the exalted status of TV producers at an interesting time, but without a clear point of view or direction. The producers, obviously, are good storytellers, and there is something to be said — touched on here — about their shifting roles as TV has embraced an auteur quality. Still, the resulting doc finally feels like less than the sum of its anecdotes.

Irish filmmaker Des Doyle received funding from both the Irish Film Board and Kickstarter to assemble the project, which might explain a certain wide-eyed, rudimentary approach to the topic, from defining the term “showrunner” and the rungs of the writer-producer ladder to »

10 Movies So Good You Overlook Major Flaws

30 October 2014 4:14 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lucasfilm

We all love movies that deep down we know aren’t perfect. And not in a vague, there’s-no-such-thing-as-a-perfect-movie way either. We’re talking about those films that despite you being more than aware of their faults you can’t help but find them the peak of cinematic endeavours.

But then there’s the movies that actually are at, or very close to this peak that manage to be so brilliantly constructed that whatever problems they have don’t even matter. The internet went crazy when The Big Bang Theory pointed out that Indiana Jones is superfluous to the outcome of Raiders Of The Lost Ark, the Nazis doomed to a face-melting fate even if he stays at Marshall College. It seems like a damning piece of evidence against Spielberg’s action throwback, but instead goes to highlight just how good the movie is in the first place; the »

Darlene Love will sing 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)' on Letterman for a 29th time, and that’s it

29 October 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Darlene Love will sing "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” on Letterman for a 29th time, and that’s it Love, who has been singing the Christmas classic every year on Letterman’s "Late Night" and "The Late Show" since 1986, says she will retire the holiday tradition after this year, opting not to continue it on another late-night show. "They never told me not to, but it was an unspoken thing. They couldn't ask me not to sing 'Christmas (Baby)' on another show, but after 10 years, then 15 years, of doing this one song on this one show, I felt I had an obligation to be true to them," she tells Billboard. Plus: Watch Love sing “Christmas” in 1986 and in 2013.

Kaley Cuoco Receives Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

29 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Although she’s been on two long-running sitcoms in her brief 29 years, Kaley Cuoco says film roles are still somewhat elusive for her. So when she had the opportunity to audition for the role of a troubled twentysomething in independent drama “Burning Bodhi,” she was eager to prove herself.

“I got to show a completely different side of me,” Cuoco says. “No one really wants to take a chance on me like that, but I’m a very emotional person so it comes easier to me than you would think.”

Surprising audiences might be what Cuoco does best. She demonstrated as a teenager that she was more than a flash in the pan on ABC’s “8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter,” learning a few comedic tricks from her late co-star John Ritter, and has since become the comedic, maternal heart of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory.” And on Oct. »

TV Review: ‘The McCarthys’

29 October 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Big and broad, CBS’ “The McCarthys” tries to bask in the glory of a fractious, colorful nuclear family from Boston (here pronounced Baaahston), with the mild twist that one of the grown sons is gay. The scenario yields all the expected gags, and leaves an able cast — including Tyler Ritter as the son and Laurie Metcalf as his mom — struggling to make much of it. The Eye network has already managed to wring more life than anticipated out of the similarly boisterous “The Millers,” but it will require the luck of the Irish to replicate that feat with this bunch.

Of course, Ritter’s Ronny came out to his kin a while back, but the family continues to wrestle with the particulars. “You’re still gay?” mom asks, seemingly only half kidding, when he mentions it.

Truth be told, though, at least initially Ronny being gay plays like little more than a sitcom device, »

29 October 2014 6:17 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS and Fox, both benefiting from more sports help than usual, were last week’s most popular networks among young adults — snapping NBC’s four-week winning streak to start the season.

The Eye’s joint telecast of “Thursday Night Football” with NFL Network delivered the week’s largest overall primetime audience for the first time (20.22 million), according to Nielsen, while finishing No. 3 in adults 18-49 (6.7/21).  The net also got a lengthy NFL overrun on Sunday, with the conclusion of the Indianapolis-Pittsburgh game averaging a 7.1/24 in 18-49 and 23.25 million total viewers in primetime’s opening hour.
