We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Once Upon a Time, Lucifer, Jane the Virgin and Lethal Weapon!
1 | Which of SNL’s branded content sketches was worse: Burger King or Honda?
2 | Is Once Upon a Time‘s Snow White using, like, giant sidewalk chalk on the blackboard here? (Perhaps a blind Mary Ingalls is among her students?) Also, the staff-wielding young seer that has visited Emma and now Jasmine is totally Jafar in disguise, akin to his big-screen masquerade as the old man, »
For seven seasons, The Middle has been a staple of the Wednesday night schedule on . Now, the network has moved the sitcom to Tuesday nights. How will this move affect the ratings? Could this long-running comedy be cancelled or, will it be renewed for a ninth season? Stay tuned.Set in Orson, Indiana, The Middle TV show revolves around the five members of the middle-class Heck family. It's headed by quarry manager Mike (Neil Flynn) and Frankie (Patricia Heaton), a dental assistant. They do their best to make ends meet and raise their three very different kids -- lazy Axl (Charlie McDermott), awkward Sue (Eden Sher), and Brick (Atticus Shaffer), the intelligent yet odd youngest son.Read More… »
With their new songs, Jimmy Eat World are proving that they’ve still got it in terms of quality. After over a decade of albums, you’d think we’ve seen it all from them, but as years go by, they continue to pull new and interesting things out from their sleeves. The band is dropping their ninth full-length album, Integrity Blues, on October 21st, and to celebrate, they just released a video of them performing their single, “Sure and Certain,” acoustically.
“Sure and Certain,” which debuted back in August, is arguably one of the best lead singles that Jimmy Eat World has ever had, formulating a rock sound around bigger pop sensibilities. The acoustic version strips down the song entirely, and brings it back into a setting that the band has always managed to strive in. With great harmonies and a pitch perfect performance by frontman Jim Adkins, this »

In TVLine’s exclusive clip from The Middle‘s Season 8 premiere (Tuesday, 8/7c), the Hecks meet April (Awkward‘s Greer Grammer), who could definitely benefit from taking a public speaking class — or perhaps by going back to kindergarten and starting over from there.
Simply put, April is… kind of an idiot. I mean, she’s lovely and charming and seems to make Axl very happy — but you can practically hear the wind whistling through her »
The release is the first collection of episodes available on DVD, and it’s not only a good selection because these are episodes that focus on the individual members of the Guard, but because these are some of the series’ most rewatchable efforts.
The show is not just a fun adventure for kids, but the series takes on a broad range within its episodic content, tackling some tricky issues, without actually decoding its own efforts and bogging down in overt explanation.
For example, the episode Fuli’s New Family spans a variety of issues, but chief among them is an examination of the idea that just because doing something seems objectively “right,” or, “how friends act, »

After another round of letting people check out pilots, Amazon Studios has given the go ahead on three series, and they’re all pretty fantastic.
I Love Dick, Jean-Claude Van Johnson, and The Tick all got series orders, and will come out in 2017. You can still catch the pilots if you didn’t manage to get to them yet, and at least now be more comfortable in the fact that you’ll get to watch the shows.
Jean-Claude Van Johnson is a weirdly fun spin on spy efforts that I think will suck in even those going in with low expectations.
Get all the info below, and give the pilots a look.

They may be on the small screen, but there’s nothing small about their paychecks: The Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons and Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara top this year’s list of the highest-paid actors and actresses on TV.
The annual list, compiled by Forbes magazine, tracks earnings from June 2015 to June 2016 and adds in each actor’s endorsements along with their per-episode salaries. That explains why Vergara leads all TV actors, male or female, with a whopping $43 million, thanks to lucrative ad campaigns (like Head & Shoulders shampoo) and licensing deals. Parsons’ Big Bang co-star Kaley Cuoco lands in second place among actresses, »

If you've been watching ABC's family comedies over the last few years, Speechless will feel simultaneously familiar and unusual, both in ways that are reassuring. Since the debuts of Modern Family and The Middle, ABC has had an uncanny knack for developing single-camera comedies about families, each of them feeling like part of the some coherent brand, but having their own distinct voice and perspective. Not all of them have entirely clicked (The Real O'Neals is still figuring itself out, though it has moments), but there are safer bets in the TV business right now. Based on the pilot episode, at least, Speechless (it debuts tomorrow at 8:30, in between The Goldbergs and Modern Family) looks like another winner. The hook here is that the family, headed by Maya Dimeo (Minnie Driver) — husband Jimmy (John Ross Bowie from Big Bang Theory) knows his role is to support Maya's leadership and »

Jimmy Eat World gave us a taste of their new album last week when they dropped the first track “Get Right,” but now they’re making everybody hungry for more upon the release of another new jam, “Sure And Certain.”
“Sure And Certain” will act as the proper lead single for the band’s upcoming record, Integrity Blues, and it’s got the perfect formula to become a radio rock hit. Granted, it’s certainly no “The Middle,” and Taylor Swift probably won’t be lip-syncing this one in an Apple commercial anytime soon, but with a catchy, soaring chorus and nostalgic melodies, it’s yet another notch in the group’s belt of great songs.
Jimmy Eat World’s ninth full-length album, Integrity Blues, will arrive on October 21st via RCA Records, and it’s now available for pre-order on their official website. The album was produced by Justin Meldal-Johnson, »
