The Weekend Read: Our Saturday essay on the great topics in entertainment and culture today. Last weekend, as Toshi was cruising the Blu-ray shelves for new movies to start asking about, he pulled "Rain Man" on a shelf and considered the cover for a moment before he turned to me, excited. "You didn't tell me Tom Cruise made a superhero movie!" I can only assume his eventual disappointment might be tempered by the fact that "Rain Man" is a pretty good movie. It had been a while since I'd seen it, though, and after they went back to their mom's house, I put it in to watch it. I remember when it came out being right in the midst of my first time watching a lot of classic filmographies, and more than anything, I enjoyed the film as a match-up between Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. Looking at the film, »

1990s nostalgia has been popular lately. Variety reports that Craig T. Nelson (Parenthood) is reprising his role in a Coach sequel for NBC, Fox brought back the X-Files, Netflix is turning Wet Hot American Summer into a series, and Showtime is bringing Twin Peaks out from the Black Lodge. It is only appropriate that another favorite nineties TV series is remembered, albeit in oral history form. Uproxx has interviewed the writers and stars of NewsRadio to find out how influential this sitcom was.
NewsRadio starred Dave Foley, Stephen Root, Maura Tierney, Phil Hartman, Andy Dick, and Khandi Alexander, and focused on characters who worked at Wnyx, an Am News Radio Station in New York. Although NewsRadio aired for five seasons between 1995 and 1999, it changed time slots eleven times, and was considered a failure by Must-See TV standards. Executive producer and creator Paul Simms was known to lash out at NBC executives, »

NBC is dipping into the archives for its newest project, which will see the classic 1990s sitcom Coach return to the small screen, reports EW.
Original star Craig T. Nelson (Parenthood, Blades of Glory) is to reprise his role almost 20 years since the end of the show. But rather than a reboot or a retool, the new series will act as a sequel to the original, which ran from 1989 to 1997, and run for 13 episodes.
No news on whether any other original cast members will also return, but original creator Barry Kemp will write and executive produce the new run.
The new series will reportedly see Coach Hayden Fox (Nelson), in the present day having retired from coaching. He is called back to become assistant coach to his own grown son, who is the new head coach at an Ivy league school in Pennsylvania that is just starting up a new team. »

Get that letterman jacket out of storage and get ready for more old white people on TV. Following this week’s announcement that Fox will be backing a six-episode return of Chris Carter’s The X-Files, NBC has now announced that they have ordered a 13-episode renewal of Coach, the inexplicably long-running sitcom that made a star out of Craig T. Nelson. The basic plot find’s Nelson’s Hayden Fox playing second-fiddle to his son, the head coach of an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania that has never had a football team before. Barry Kemp, the creator-producer-writer of the original series, which went off the air in 1997, will return to write the new series, while also executive producing the show with Nelson.

The TV nostalgia party continues, and this time Craig T. Nelson is hosting. No, NBC isn't reviving Parenthood's Zeek Braverman (despite all of our pleas/tears), but they are reviving another classic Nelson character named Coach Hayden Fox. That's right, Coach is coming back to TV! The sitcom originally ran for nine seasons from 1989 to 1997 and followed the head coach (Nelson) of the fictional Minnesota State University Screaming Eagles as he balanced football and family.

Bad news for Parenthood‘s Monica Potter and Ellen DeGeneres. The duo’s untitled comedy is cancelled or delayed for now. The network has made the big decision to not proceed with the show despite the fact they already announced some stars. The show was supposed to follow Bridget (Potter’s character) who deals with a crazy life that includes 3 ex-husbands. NBC and Warner Bros made a joint choice to hold off on further development until next year-which may or may not happen.
We’re sad by this news as fans of Monica. However, we are not shocked by NBC’s choice. The network has attache itself to many possible series and a few would need to be delayed or canned. However, it is a shame that they chose to do this to a show that was already going along as nicely as this one was. Plus that means a »

NBC and Warner Bros. TV have opted not to proceed with production on their multi-camera comedy pilot starring Parenthood alumna Monica Potter. The project, from creators Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer, has instead been pushed to next season. The decision was made after the comedy had undergone a table read and a run-through as it was gearing up for taping. I hear the consensus between the studio and the network was that the project in its current form didn’t live… »

Hulu is getting into the Jason Katims business — and vice versa — by ordering straight to series The Way, a 10-episode drama about a family at the center of a controversial faith-based movement, and its struggles with relationships, marriage and power.
The series marks the Parenthood/Friday Night Lights showrunner’s first non-network project. Parenthood scribe/producer Jessica Goldberg will write and exec-produce The Way, along with Katims and Michelle Lee.
Jason Katims is the latest A-list showrunner to set up shop at a digital outlet. Hulu has given a series order to “The Way,” a Universal TV drama about a family at the center of a controversial faith-based movement.
Goldberg previously worked with Katims on “Parenthood,” the NBC family drama that wrapped its six-season run in January. Katims is also showrunner of the NBC comedy “About a Boy,” which is iffy for a third season renewal.
“Way” is billed as a “controversial, dangerous and thrilling world” with a family wrapped up in a faith movement and “struggling with relationships, marriage and power.”
Hulu’s Svod service has been slower out of the gate on the original content front than rivals Netflix and Amazon. »

A review of tonight's "Justified" coming up just as soon as I call the soft rock militia on you... In one way, you could look at "Burned" as a filler episode, since very little happens to change the larger story arcs. Boyd doesn't get his hands on Markham's cash, and thus Raylan doesn't get to arrest him, but both men intend to keep trying. Ava discovers that Raylan is wise to her, but figures out a way to remain out of jail for now by giving him the real details of the heist. Zachariah tries to murder Boyd for what the Crowder family has done to Ava, but Carl saves his boss at the last minute. Raylan doesn't even manage to successfully sell Arlo's house to Loretta, since her overt pitch to the town to become part of her budding pot empire would get him trouble with the higher-ups. With »
