Nowhere in the title of Best Multi-Camera Comedy Editing or in the rulebook does it state that variety shows may submit in this category, but "The Colbert Report" and "Conan" opened the floodgates last year when they became the first such programs to do so. -Break- Top 10 Emmy contenders for Best Single-Camera Comedy Editing Both reaped nominations, pushing out two-time winner "Two and a Half Men" and "2 Broke Girls," which were nominated the year before. But even if variety's eligibility in this category is suspect, some kind of a shakeup should be in order. Including those two variety contenders, there were just 14 entries on this ballot last year. 2013's nominees were: "The Big Bang Theory" (season 6 – third nomination) "The Colbert Report" (season 9 – third nomination) "Conan" (season 3 – first nomination) "Hot in Cleveland" (sea »
Laverne Cox has booked an appearance on Bravo’s upcoming series Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce. She’ll play a war reporter and Lgbt activist who appears at a marriage equality gala.
Sean Hayes has joined the cast of The Millers next season. He’ll play a new pal of Carol (Margo Martindale) whose presence annoys Carol’s son Nathan (Will Arnett). On one hand, seeing Margo Martindale and Sean Hayes sharing scenes sounds amazing. I’m just not sure it will be so amazing on The Millers, considering the episodes I’ve seen.
With its 100th episode here, TVLine looks back at the Pretty Little Liars‘s pilot episode. Ah, remember when Aria was the mature and worldly one?

Devon Aoki will be appearing on Arrow next season as blade-wielding heroine Katana. Interestingly, she’ll appear in the flashbacks (which will take place in Hong Kong), at least at first. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed Arrow does a better job of adapting Katana than it did with Brother Blood. Still, it’s yet another case of Arrow announcing a character I can’t wait to see on TV, something I’m waiting for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to do.
TVLine reports that Jamie Bamber has signed up for a multi-episode arc on Rizzoli & Isles. The Battlestar Galatica hunk will first appear in the summer finale.

Tuinier comes to the Viacom cabler from Fox, where she was most recently director of current programming. She reports to Keith Cox, exec VP of development and original programming.
“We are thrilled to have Dana on board as our department expands to accommodate the growth in our original series,” Cox said. “Her experience working on a wide variety of shows in different formats is invaluable as TV Land explores new types of original programming.”

Playing Greendale’s resident pop-culture enthusiast gave the actor the opportunity to step into the shoes of everyone from Don Draper to Han Solo to various members of the show’s central study group.
Season 5 in particular, though, saw Abed dealing with an onslaught of changes, including a death in the college, the departure of his best friend and even the start of a romantic relationship, but Pudi rose to the challenge, grounding »
TV Land‘s gimmick of creating new sit-coms that are throwbacks to the style and general effort of those classic shows from the ’80s and ’90s is one that is proving more and more a hit-or-miss venture. What at first seemed a no-fail stroke of genius, has now put out its share of failures, and though it has led to some truly great shows, we’re learning that you can’t always spin success out of the concept.
For every Hot in Cleveland, there’s a Retired at 35. For every The Exes, we get a Happily Divorced. Not that those shows were terrible. They weren’t. They just didn’t work out, and were perhaps not as solid in their construction as the real hits. Now we have Kirstie, which I admit seemed like a good idea on paper, and that one is mostly difficult to watch. This leads us to Jennifer Falls, »

Trish Bendix isn’t happy with how Faking It ended its first season. Bendix writes in The Hollywood Reporter that the ending destroys Faking It‘s credibility in handling lesbian characters. (Spoilers await you at the link.)
Just hours before debuting the fifth season, ABC Family ordered two more seasons of Pretty Little Liars. That will keep the campy horror soap on the air until 2016. With seven seasons, I believe that should make it ABC Family’s longest-running series.
I’m still hoping it turns out they really are getting texts from Hillary.
Does the timing of the Game of Thrones finale hint at a major spoiler from the books? (Again, it’s a major spoiler, so click at your own risk.)
