I’m not trying to score TVLine a quote on an upcoming promo for The Voice, I promise. But every season, when the Battle Rounds arrive, all I can think is, “This damn show has too much damn talent.”

How else can Gwen Stefani declare one of Team Pharrell’s showdowns her favorite Battle in show history, then leave the loser hanging without a coveted steal? And why is it that nine seasons in, declaring a winner in any given head-to-head matchup feels more challenging than ever?

VideosBig Bang Theory‘s Mayim Bialik Teases Experimental Season 9 for ‘Shamy’
According to a Big Bang source, Spencer will be a fractional series regular in sitcom’s current ninth season. The status tweak guarantees the actress’ availability on an as-needed basis (i.e. she will not be in every episode).
Spencer has recurred on the CBS juggernaut since joining the show in Season 7.

“He plays the most attractive hacker we’ve hired yet,” showrunner Pam Veasey tells TVLine of the former 90210 star. “Everybody thinks hackers are these nerdy guys, but that’s not always the case.”
Veasey further describes Lanter’s character as a “really intriguing guy who lives his life through the Internet and builds relationships with the people whose lives he hacks into. He hacks into people’s lives, then they become part of his life. »
Eight years ago this November, the Writers Guild of America went on strike, a 12-week work stoppage that ultimately scored scribes (among other things) a piece of the growing digital-media pie, but also would come to be blamed for derailing shows such as Heroes and Pushing Daisies while allowing unscripted “reality” programming to gain a firmer foothold in the TV landscape.
The WGA action also helped sire Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, a three-act musical comedy crafted by Whedon brothers Joss, Zack and Jed, along with Maurissa Tancharoen, and financed for barely $200,000.

“I want him,” says Alicia’s teenage daughter/recently installed Girl Friday Grace, the minute her mother finishes interviewing the gruff, very flirty former attorney.

The kid is speaking in strictly professional terms (I think?) but it seems as though Grace has managed to steal the words right from our titular protagonist’s brain/heart/various other nerve endings. »
The Big Bang Theory is a really remarkable thing. You might think you like it, but you’re wrong. You’ve just been afflicted with a very particular strain of comedy Stockholm Syndrome, because it’s on constantly.
The NME actually tried to blag that it’s the new Friends, which is only really true insofar as they both utilise television as a medium. Friends has jokes and a coterie of roughly believable, rounded characters around which mad things and people can happen. The Big Bang Theory places the cart before the horse in having the one-dimensional crackpots centre stage constantly. It’s wearing in the extreme.
It’s a show about stereotypically socially awkward nerds which looks and feels like it was written by 8 jocks with a copy of Encarta. It’s like being trapped in a very small room with a load of drama students with their »

It’s been rather gloomy in the world of The Big Bang Theory for the last two weeks. The seismic revelations of the eighth season finale left the opening episodes of this season with a lot of narrative heavy lifting to do. With that mostly out of the way, for now at least, ‘The Bachelor Party Corrosion’ was an opportunity for the programme to get back into its comfort zone and make its audience laugh once again.
There were two pretty well-worn premises in play this week. First, Howard and Raj decided to kidnap Leonard and Sheldon in order to give the former the bachelor party he hadn’t received before eloping with Penny at the end of last season. »

The third installment of The Ring horror movie franchise, Rings, was originally scheduled for release this Fall. But the film has hit a huge snag and the studio, Paramount Pictures, announced that the release will now be pushed back to sometime in 2016. Entertainment Weekly reports that Paramount has un-circled November 13, which was the original release date for the film, and that the film will open "sometime next year." Rings, originally titled The Rings 3D, stars The Big Bang Theory cast member Johnny Galecki, Matilda Lutz, and English actor Alex Roe, and will presumably attempt to find a yet a third way to employ the "cursed videotape that kills you days after you watch it" set up. That theme already seemed strained in the previous effort, The Ring Two, which performed well at the box office and actually enjoyed a higher opening weekend haul »
Actress Mayim Bialik is at the cutting veg of entertaining. The Big Bang Theory star, who plays Amy Farrah Fowler on the hit CBS series, is sharing her recipe for vegan spanakopita with Us Weekly.

There are over 3 billion comedy shows currently being made in America (rough estimate) and a lot of them are no good at all. There’s only so often you can take 22 full minutes out of your busy day to give a new, disappointing comedy a go before you decide to just stick with what you know (and if ratings are anything to go by, then “what you know” is usually The Big Bang Theory. You idiots).
Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a sitcom set in a police precinct in Brooklyn, shouldn’t be a hard sell – it’s enjoyed critical success, even winning the Golden Globe for best comedy in its first season. But it hasn’t gained the traction it deserves within the zeitgeist and now, at the start of the third season, seems as good a time as any to try to correct that. So here are 10 of the 3 billion »
