With Parenthood on hiatus until next year, you still have plenty of time to set up your betting pool on who will (as promised!) be kicking the bucket. All signs seem to be pointing toward Zeek, who, at the end of the last episode (Spoiler!), asked that Camille call an ambulance. But maybe the writers of Parenthood are planning a little twist? Here are your odds. Have a happy Thanksgiving with your family.Kristina Braverman (Monica Potter): 100:1 Kristina already had a death scare in season four, but it’s perfectly possible that the cancer could come back. Or maybe this is just wishful thinking, because she’s turned into a monster, letting Max get away with murder at the Braveman-run charter school and still (!) parading around like opening that thing was the best thing she and Adam could’ve done for him. We all realize now that this isn’t true. »

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are one cute couple!The expecting star and her hunky hubby star together in an adorable Samsung holiday commercial -- where the actress' baby bump takes center stage.In the ad, the "Parenthood" actor and the "House of Lies" star emulate their real life and sport matching Christmas ensembles as they prep their home for the holidays. "Why is yours twice as big as mine?" Dax asks about his wife’s festive stocking. "I’m stocking for two," she replies. "It would feel like a lie to pretend she doesn’t have an extra foot-and-a-half protruding from her abdomen," he teases. Check out the cute clip below! With Baby #2 on the way, Bell's growing belly takes center stage in real life too. "We goof off and make a lot of jokes about it in our household and I think that’s what keeps it fun and light, »

A review of last night's "Parenthood" coming up just as soon as there are no cookies... What a maddening episode of "Parenthood" was "Lean In," full of Bravermans behaving badly (and, on occasion, the Braverman-adjacent doing the same), and the show only sometimes seeming to be aware that this is what was happening. This week's worst offenders: Kristina and Adam, who are spectacularly out of line for the majority of the episode. It's not just that Kristina has completely failed her role as headmistress and protector of the other kids at Chambers by choosing to be Max's mother first and foremost, but that she and Adam are doing such a lousy job of being Max's parents. There is trying to make the world bend a little to accommodate a kid with special needs, and then there is enabling your son's ongoing harassment of other kids in his class, getting angry »

The return of a familiar face, wistful memories of a European adventure, an emotionally loaded Italian dinner — yep, “nostalgia” was the magic word for many characters on Thursday’s Parenthood.
But did all those fond reminiscences end well? In some cases, yes. (Finally, Joel And Julia.) In others… well, let’s just say Jan. 8 can’t come soon enough.
Here’s how the evening played out for the Bravermans & Co. in this week’s fall finale:
Joel & Julia | Let’s start out with the no-longer-estranged couple, because their final scene in Thursday’s episode has legitimately put a bounce in my step. »
[Warning: This story contains spoilers from episode 609, "Lean In," of NBC's Parenthood.] Showrunner Jason Katims warned that the sixth and final season of NBC's Parenthood would explore mortality in a new way and Thursday's winter finale proved just that. During the closing moments of the episode, Zeek (Craig T. Nelson) — the central figure of the Braverman family — suffered a heart attack. Zeek's latest health crisis came months after he underwent open-heart surgery to repair a mitral valve and spent months recovering. The Hollywood Reporter hit the set of Parenthood to catch up with the

There's only four new episodes of Parenthood before we bid farewell to the Braverman family.
For six seasons the show has authentically portrayed the highs and lows of the Braverman clan and has managed to make everyone who watches it weep. From Max's (Max Burkholder) Asperger’s journey and Kristina's (Monica Potter) brave battle with cancer to Zeek's (Craig T. Nelson) heart scare and Amber's (Mae Whitman) surprise pregnancy, the writers have taken the fans on quite the emotional journey throughout the series run. But arguably no story line has been as divisive as Joel (Sam Jaeger) and Julia's (Erika Christensen) failing marriage this season.

Sarah Braverman's love life has been quite the rollercoaster ride ever since Parenthood started. She's made a few bad choices over the years (see also: dating her and her brother's boss and kissing her fresh-out-of-rehab ex-husband), but ever since Sarah (Lauren Graham) rekindled her romance with Hank (Ray Romano) at the end of Season 5, it appeared that the eldest Braverman daughter had finally settled down for good.

Will NBC proceed with its new Bill Cosby family comedy? The Peacock last July announced plans to bring Cosby back to primetime in summer or fall of 2015 as the patriarch of a new family sitcom. As Deadline reports, "That plan may have been derailed by the resurfaced rape accusations against the veteran comedian.” Plus: Comedian Hannibal Buress is responsible for the Bill Cosby rape story going viral, another woman is accusing Cosby of rape, and Whoopi Goldberg is skeptical of the Cosby rape accuser. Parents TV Council blasts FX for showing graphic “Sons of Anarchy” sex scene The conservative watchdog called the opening 2 1/2 minutes of last week’s episode "the most sexually explicit content the (organization) has ever documented on basic cable,” adding that such content should be reserved for pay cable like HBO or Showtime.

According to reports, the actress is engaged to marry her boyfriend, cyclist Cole Maness.

A source tells Us that Christensen isn't publicly wearing her ring yet, and that the couple hasn't set the date as she is hard at work finishing up the final season of her beloved family drama.

A review of tonight's "Parenthood" coming up just as soon as I'm watching a keg and marijuana paraphernalia... One of the conditions of NBC giving "Parenthood" this final season was a reduced budget, which means every castmember has to miss at least a couple of episodes. Given that this is already a series that has more characters than time to properly service them, the forced vacations aren't in theory a bad thing, and there have been times this season where the show has juggled the absences well enough so they're not noticeable. "Aaron Brownstein Must Be Stopped" was not one of those times. Giving Joel and Julia the week off after the previous episode ended on Joel making a big dramatic gesture in front of Julia wasn't ideal, but their absence was one of the less egregious this week. (Zeek's would be the least, in that there wasn't an obvious »

A few months back, I chatted with a friend’s mom about Parenthood — well, more accurately, she asked what my favorite TV show currently was, and I went on a several-minute-long sales pitch for the NBC drama, because nothing is more enticing than the words, “You’ll cry at least once in every episode!”, right?
I recall this story because Thursday’s episode of Parenthood did the exact thing my friend’s mom said it did: It portrayed real life a little too well. In this week’s installment — the last before the Nov. 20 fall finale, which looks like a »
Lionsgate and CBS Films announced a multi-year distribution partnership this morning, which will begin with the 2015 release of the teen comedy The Duff. Along with the press release, they have debuted a first look at the cast, which features Disney superstar Bella Thorne and Parenthood favorite Mae Whitman.
The high school comedy The Duff is based on the bestselling novel by Kody Keplinger and is directed by Ari Sandel from a screenplay by Josh Cagan.  McG, Mary Viola and Susan Cartsonis produced The Duff with Lane Bishop serving as executive producer.
The film follows Bianca (Mae Whitman), a high school senior whose world is shattered when a charming jock (Robbie Amell) informs her that the student body knows her as The Duff (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) to her prettier, more popular friends (Skyler Samuels and Bianca Santos).
Hear that? It's the sound of our hearts bursting out of our chests at the thought that Gilmore Girls could actually come back as a TV show or movie. While the Atx Television Festival just announced that Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel and Amy Sherman Palladino (creator) will be doing a Gilmore Girls reunion panel this June, Graham herself hinted to me that she's been warming up to the idea of taking on Lorelai Gilmore once more. "Now I sort of weirdly crave it," the Parenthood actress told me of the notoriously fast-placed Gilmore Girls scripts, after catching up on the show a little on Netflix. "I have seen some of it and I love that kind of language and that athleticism." So could a »
