NBC has added to its busy summer slate, pairing new comedies “Mr. Robinson” and “The Carmichael Show” for an hour block on Wednesday and scheduling eight more new and returning series that will premiere between Memorial Day and early August.
New alternative entries “The Island” and “I Can Do That” are the first newcomers to come aboard, and each will get a lead-in from “American Ninja Warrior,” which had been previously announced for a May 25 premiere date.
“The Island,” based on the hit Channel 4 U.K. series of the same name, sends 14 American men to a deserted island with only the clothes on their backs and minimal survival skills. The twist is that there will be no prizes, eliminations, winners or producers. The six-episode series comes from Endemol Shine North America and Bear Grylls Ventures and will air Mondays at 10 starting May 25.
One night later, on Tuesday at 10 p. »

Chelsea Handler is very firmly not on Team Cosby. During a recent interview with Esquire for the mag's "Women & Men" issue, the comedienne shared that Bill Cosby once invited her up to his hotel room in Atlantic City, N.J. Handler, 40, was chatting with her fellow April 2015 cover star Nick Offerman and interviewer Scott Raab when the Cosby Show alum's name came up, prompting Raab to remark, "Poor guy."

Even before Apple unveiled it's heavily-anticipated new Dick Tracy wristwatch this week, the company gave HBO chief a platform to announce its new stand-alone streaming service, HBO Now, which will allow people who don't subscribe to HBO on their cable bills to stream HBO programming old and new, including the season of "Game of Thrones" that begins in April.
Exciting as that is, it's just one development in recent days that could change forever the way you watch TV.
Between the new HBO service, the changes happening at Netflix that will make its offerings more like conventional TV, and the ongoing carriage battles over which channels your cable provider is still willing to keep on its lineup, the wholesale migration of TV programming from your big flatscreen to your PC or mobile is apparently underway.
HBO Now is still very much an experiment. For the first three months, only Apple product users (that is, »

Chelsea Handler is turning 40 on Wednesday, and has basically been living in a topless version of Green Eggs and Ham - much like Sam I Am, she'll go topless on a house, with a mouse, in a box, or near a fox (and, most recently, at the top of the Twitter offices). The comic and former Chelsea Lately host has been challenging Instagram's nudity guidelines by posting photos of herself sans shirt over the past year, and though she has come under fire for the racy snaps (a few of them caused her account to be suspended), there's really nothing that will stop the notoriously outspoken star from baring her boobs on social media. However you feel about Chelsea, her brand of comedy, or her breasts, you have to admit that her topless photos are way more funny than they are scandalous - seriously, standing on top of a snow-covered mountain with no shirt on? »
Chelsea Handler finally has a deal with an entertainment company she feels proud to call home. In an interview with Re/code, the comedienne and author revealed how different it is working with Netflix instead of E! Entertainment, and discussed her upcoming talk show with the streaming video company.
For seven years, Handler hosted the Chelsea Lately talk show on E!. Handler said her experience there was like being back in junior high, with “people running around, throwing food, making jokes about celebrities that are stupid. And I’m so much smarter than that show was, and I wanted to be on a show that was smarter than I was.”
After quitting Chelsea Lately, the comedienne told Re/code she took three months off to read books, stop using social media, and more. She even considered not coming back to entertainment at all, because she didn’t “want to have »

I did what I wanted and I didn't listen to anybody because I didn't care what they had to say because I didn't respect their opinions," Handler said of the network that employed her for seven years (via The Hollywood Reporter).

Almost immediately, her co-hosts including Tamar Braxton, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon came to their friend's defense. "Tease you for what?" Tamar asked. Jeannie added, "If anything, we molest you. We touch you too much." But as it »
Chelsea Handler certainly knows how to get people talking! The comedienne posted a photo on Instagram earlier this week of her dog sitting in her car alone, captioning it, "It's like a 24 hour watch. He must know I'm pregnant." Immediately fans started to speculate whether or not the talk show host could be expecting! As soon as she picked up on the swirling rumors she posted yet another picture to clear the air. This time she bared her very flat stomach while holding a throwback photo of herself and wrote, "The last time I was pregnant was in this picture. Wake up, people. I would never do that to a baby." But apparently her pictures weren't enough! The Chelsea Lately host has »
