Meet the 2014 Tribeca Filmmakers #41: Courteney Cox Created a Passion Project in 'Before I Go'

4 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Courteney Cox of "Friends" and "Cougar Town" is stepping to the other side of the camera for "Just Before I Go," a drama about a man in need of making amends. Tell us about yourself: I’m a Mom. I’ve been acting and producing for many years. I directed my first short, starring Laura Dern, in 2008 and from that moment on I knew that’s what I wanted to do. I will always look for interesting projects as an actress and am really excited about my next directing job. Biggest challenge creating this project? This was a passion project for me, so I knew there would be challenges. For example, there was a finite amount of time to raise money and a finite amount of time to make the film with the amount of money we had raised. It gave us only 23 days to shoot. We had 41 speaking parts and 19 locations. »

Mad Men, Ep. 7.01: “Time Zones” – the bicoastal final season starts strong

14 April 2014 4:29 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Mad Men, Season 7: Episode 1 – “Time Zones”

Written by Matthew Weiner

Directed by Scott Hornbacher

Airs Sunday nights at 10 on AMC

As the United States swears in its new president, Richard Nixon, the country finds itself in a transition period, caught between the two worlds of its past and uncertain future. “Time Zones” splits is central characters up in a similar way that exposes just how noticeable the precipices are that they stand on. Don Draper isn’t just living an existence that has him dividing time between his New York life and the Californian one he shares with his wife, Megan. He’s also in a rough limbo, biding his time until Sterling Cooper & Partners calls him back to the office. Roger Sterling is even more lost at sea. Our re-introduction to the man–completely naked in a room full of post-coital men and women–poses plenty of questions »

Season premiere review: 'Mad Men' - 'Time Zones'

13 April 2014 8:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Mad Men" is back for the start of its seventh season — which is or isn't the final season depending on whether you value contractual language (which says it is) over scheduling (which will give us seven episodes this spring and seven more next year) — and I have a review of the premiere coming up just as soon as I'm seated next to a man in a hairpiece eating a banana... "Why are you making it so hard? Open the door and walk in." -Lou Avery We return to the world of "Mad Men" a scant two months after our last glimpse, late in January of 1969. It's by far the shortest time gap between seasons, but almost as much has changed in those two months than in the 11 months between the heist of Sterling Cooper and our first look at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. It seems only appropriate given the period. »

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier': A reference guide

5 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Nine films in, the movies released by Marvel Studios comprise an elaborate narrative tapestry, with connections running between films, the short DVD-extra One-Shots, and the rapidly expanding universe of TV projects. The films are purposefully designed to appeal to newcomers. I’m guessing that the vast majority of people who love Iron Man have never read an Iron Man comic book. (Side note: Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man is much cooler than pretty much any comic book version of Iron Man.) But speaking as someone who grew up devouring comic books, part of what makes the Marvel Studios films »

Ratings: AMC, Own, TLC Among Notable Cable Gainers in 2014

3 April 2014 11:49 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The quarterly ratings fortunes of cable networks often ride on a single show, and that was the case for the likes of AMC, A&E and Own during the first three months of the year.

AMC surged behind record ratings for “The Walking Dead,” and Own had its best showing to date thanks in large part to Tyler Perry soap “The Haves and the Have Nots.” On the other hand, the decline of “Duck Dynasty,” though still a top program, produced noticeable declines for A&E.

Overall according to Nielsen primetime estimates for the quarter (Dec. 30, 2013 through March 30, 2014), TBS prevailed in the key demos of adults 18-49, 25-54 and 18-34 but was down about 10% from last year; it had won a year ago in 18-49 and 18-34. The cable home to repeats of “The Big Bang Theory” also aired three of the quarter’s top 10 original cable comedies, led by »

Cougar Town: Season Five Ratings

2 April 2014 9:17 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though Cougar Town's ratings dropped quite a bit when the sitcom moved from ABC to TBS, it was still one of the cable channel's highest-rated original series. Will it continue to be a success? Is it essentially guaranteed to be renewed because of syndication? Stay tuned!

Cougar Town continues to follow Jules Cobb (Courteney Cox) and her wine-loving friends and family members. The rest of the cast includes Christa Miller, Busy Philipps, Dan Byrd, Josh Hopkins, Ian Gomez, and Brian Van Holt.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

Final season averages: 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.47 million total viewers.

Cougar Town Ep. 5.13 “We Stand a Chance” ends the season (series?) on a high note

2 April 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cougar Town Season 5, Episode 13 “We Stand a Chance”

Written by Peter Saji

Directed by Courteney Cox

Aired 4/1/14 on TBS


With no word on a possible sixth season, Cougar Town found itself in a familiar place entering “We Stand a Chance” facing an uncertain future. It also found itself in a very new place: without a large overarching story to close in the final episode (like a graduation, wedding, runaway kid, or dying grandfather’s life long wish), “We Stand a Chance” was easily the lowest-stakes finale in the show’s five-season run, given the episodes preceding it, which appeared to tie up the season’s loose threads quite neatly. But “We Stand a Chance” is not a low-key season finale, manufacturing an interesting quasi-cliffhanger out of one of the season’s less explored elements – and despite that, is one of the strongest episodes of the season, ending an up-and-down season »

'Cougar Town' Season 5 finale: A Season 6 pregnancy, if renewal is in the cards

1 April 2014 8:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

We were already hoping "Cougar Town" would be renewed for Season 6, but now we absolutely demand it.

In the Season 5 finale, during a hair-brained scheme to pretend to be bigwig clients of Andy's, Travis and Laurie hit a rough patch when they realize that they want different things -- Travis wants to be a photographer in New York while Laurie wants to "raise their five kids" in the country.

Turns out she's quite prophetic, since Jules finds out that Laurie is pregnant when Jules uses Laurie's urine for her yearly physical (after Ellie slipped Jules some "happy pills" the night before and therefore her urine would be tainted).

After Travis and Jules make up, the gang reveals to them that Laurie is pregnant and it is wonderful. Even Tom gets to be there to help celebrate -- and it turns out he's a millionaire, so Andy has found himself a job-saving client. »

'Friends With Better Lives': A first assessment, plus burning questions

31 March 2014 6:31 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Clearly, CBS hopes its newest “group of pals” sitcom may be able to fill the How I Met Your Mother-shaped hole in your heart. Why else would the network premiere Friends With Better Lives at 9 p.m. Monday night — right after Himym wraps up its final season, when all its loyal fans are at their most vulnerable?

But if Himym was, at heart, a Ted Mosby — kind, good-hearted, a soul-mate sort of show; hold on, I’ve got something in my eye – Fwbl is more of an early-period Barney Stinson. By that, I mean it’s crass, boorish, and, »

'Surviving Jack': After 'Law and Order: Svu,' Christopher Meloni is going for laughs

27 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Christopher Meloni's new series isn't so much about the law, but there's no question he's still trying to maintain order.

Three years after ending his long "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" run as Detective Elliot Stabler, the actor goes for laughs in the Fox sitcom "Surviving Jack," premiering Thursday, March 27.

Bill Lawrence ("Cougar Town") is among the executive producers of the 1990s-set show, based on Justin Halpern's autobiographical book "I Suck at Girls." Meloni basically plays Halpern's father, a no-nonsense doctor who becomes a Mr. Mom to his teen children when his wife (Rachael Harris) starts law school.

"I was kind of leaning toward this arena," Meloni tells Zap2it of tackling a more humorous project than he usually has lately, "and it's been borne out in that I feel lighter in my day."

And lighter in his new role, too: "I think people find it refreshing when someone is unapologetically himself, »

Cougar Town Ep. 5.12 “Love Is A Long Road” a strong penultimate episode to a inconsistent season

26 March 2014 8:57 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cougar Town Season 5, Episode 12 “Love Is A Long Road”

Written by Mary Fitzgerald

Directed by Michael McDonald

Season finale airs Tuesday, April 1st at 10pm Et on TBS


I’ve said it numerous times before in Cougar Town reviews, but it holds true once again with “Love Is A Long Road”; the presence of Chick always adds emotional levity to episodes, even to stories he has nothing to do with. Following the events of “Refugee”, it would be easy to expect “Love Is A Long Road” to be a very serious episode of Cougar Town focused on Chick’s growing Alzheimer’s – instead, we get a light-hearted episode about old man farts, Ellie’s insecurities, and Bobby’s always-unorthodox approach to being a good father, all centered around Travis’s upcoming graduation.

Except that it is kind of a serious episode of the show: with no word on a sixth season as of yet, »

Creationists Want Time on “Cosmos,” Tim McKay Gets “Revenge” and “Archer” Might ‘Unreboot’

25 March 2014 4:48 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


Debate! The Good Wife and Scandal both abruptly killed off a major character. Which recent shocking TV death was better? The Daily Beast says Good Wife provided a lesson in what a perfect Omg moment looks like , but Vulture took a  different view and called it a betrayal to the characters.  Vulture’s pro-Scandal argument: The political drama’s big surprise was a moment built on weeks of character choices and one that went on to further define the characters.

“…and they made it look like a carjacking?”

The people behind the Creation Museum think Cosmos is being unfair by not giving time to discuss creationism. I believe that will come after the segment about the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

EW has more details on the next season of American Horror Story. Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Frances Conroy and Angela Bassett are all set to return, while Denis »

Girls To Continue Through Season Six, If All Goes According To Plan

19 March 2014 4:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Girls is a hot show for HBO, maybe sometimes a little too hot. In a recent chat with students at Loyola Marymount University, series producer (and occasional writer) Judd Apatow talked about some of the show’s planned sex-scenes getting axed by HBO for being too graphic. That’s a real shame, because who knows what amazing levels of depravity the show could have reached if not for the concerns of its network. There is good news, too, though: we may very well get another three seasons of Girls after the current one.

Of the aforementioned sex scenes, Apatow said the following:

There have been things on ‘Girls’ where HBO has said to us, ‘If we put this on TV, we literally could lose our license to broadcast. Let’s just say it’s something you see in adult film. Elements of sexual intercourse. The high points of sexual intercourse. »
