Either you think that a dog spouting therapy-speak while he addresses a confessional-style camera is funny, or you don’t.
If you do — and I count myself in this camp — then the premiere of ABC’s Downward Dog is a sweetly funny little belly rub of a show that premiered Wednesday (9:30/8:30c). If you don’t, then the comedy is an odd project for Allison Tolman to choose as her first post-Fargo series-regular role.

Chicago – From “Mr. Ed” to “Dog with a Blog,” talking animals have had their place on TV.

For those who aren’t completely familiar with the television calendar, we are now entering the culling. As the networks get ready for their Upfronts, it becomes time to bring the hammer down on the shows that won’t be returning, which means it is obviously also time to announce renewals.
In the midst of a ton of shows getting killed off over the last few days, Starz has renewed American Gods after the show has barely begun airing, which isn’t that unusual these days, but is surely a great relief to a lot of fans. In the release, Starz announced that the show has managed more than 5 million multiplatform viewers, and that number is growing. That’s an impressive number for a truly bonkers show on a cable network.

There are worse ways to break into Hollywood than by writing, starring, shooting, and editing a polyamorous love story with your real-life sister. That’s the lesson behind “I Love You Both,” the first film by Doug Archibald co-written (and co-staring) his sister Kristin. In the film, codependent twins Krystal and Donny have never had to lead separate lives, but their bond is severely tested when both find themselves attracted to the same man (“Raising Hope” star Lucas Neff).

Starz’s American Gods takes on a daunting — let’s call it Goliath-sized — task in adapting Neil Gaiman’s sweeping fantasy novel for the small screen. After all, the cult-favorite book is a road-trip tale, an examination of the nature of belief, one man’s journey toward enlightenment and a primer in world religions.
That’s a lot to fit into an hour each week. Does the freshman drama, which premieres April 30, make it work? Let the congregation say: Amen.

“Is it strange to want action figures from a main title sequence?” mused exec producers Bryan Fuller and Michael Green in a statement. “Crucified astronauts, neon cowboys and S&M centaurs, we bow to Elastic and their spectacular vision. A totem of godly visions we didn’t know we needed to worship until they showed us the light with this clarion call to the American Gods.”
