Psych star James Roday says that the show is planning to remake an episode from an early season, something that no show has done before. I have to admit, it’s an unusual idea (are they retelling the story from a different perspective? is it a Gus Van Sant-style remake meant to cause meltdowns?
The BBC has ordered an eighth season of Doctor Who. In case you thought there was a chance they wouldn’t.
Looking at the disastrous ratings for American Idol‘s finale (down 40% from the previous finale) The Hollywood Reporter asks where things went wrong. One problem was that Idol‘s finale came a week earlier this year, making it compete against the season finales of The Big Bang Theory and Grey’s Anatomy as well as The Office‘s swan song. However, elements like The X-Factor-prompted exhaustion, the chemistry among this season’s judges »

This year's Majestic Hotel party sees host of films showcased and stars including Nicole Kidman join producer on stage
Around Oscar time this year, cheeky host Seth Macfarlane noted that the race being now run, and the winners and losers more or less apparent, thousands of dejected actresses were at least spared the burden of saying they found Harvey Weinstein attractive. But on Friday night here in Cannes, the cyclical business of finding Harvey sexy – for both men and women – began again in a big way as the great man unveiled his slate of upcoming projects at his annual party at the Majestic Hotel.
At this same bash last year, things were far more subdued: a few cocktails, a few trailers and we were all back outside, milling about on the Croisette in pretty short order. This, by contrast, was a massive event, with around nine or 10 films being showcased »

What is Casting Couch? It’s the news column that’s got its ear to the ground, listening for any juicy tidbits coming out of Cannes. Today people like Uma Thurman, Seann William Scott, Amanda Seyfried, and Bruce Willis all got new jobs. Zach Braff hasn’t yet had much of a career as a film director, but if there’s one thing he’s got more experience shooting than most people, it’s tiny girls wearing giant headphones. So chances are Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick will be a perfect fit for the cast of his new movie, Wish I Was Here. The Wrap is reporting that she’s just joined the film in the role of Janine, a chick who’s into cosplay and who the Josh Gad character becomes enamored with. However you feel about the controversy surrounding Braff’s Kickstarter funding of this film, you have to admit, added »

Anderson Cooper truly will go anywhere for a big news story — even the year 2043.
The CNN fixture will play himself in an upcoming episode of The Simpsons partially set three decades into the future, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The story finds Lisa befriending a girl who is her match in every way, except one: she’s a conservative Republican. “They end up running against each other in the second-grade election,” explains exec producer Al Jean. “And then we flash to the future where they’re [engaged] in an actual presidential debate — and Anderson is the moderator.”

Currently filming his latest comedy drama The Grand Budapest Hotel, which is set to star an ensemble cast including Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law, and Saoirse Ronan, Wes Anderson has been producing quirky dramas for almost twenty years at this point in time.
Director, screenwriter, actor, and producer of features, short films and commercials, Anderson’s work is mostly known for his family struggles, flawed characters, British rock soundtracks, and colourful cinematography. Not only do his films compare in visual style, though, they also often include regular collaborators Bill Murray, Anjelica Huston, Owen and Luke Wilson, and Jason Schwartzman.
Here’s some of his best:
Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)
A personal favourite of mine is Anderson’s adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl book, Fantastic Mr. Fox, which was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in 2009. As one of his most recent pieces of work, it was hard to »

Plus more renewals, cancellations and series orders, a sodomy trial on Da Vinci’s Demons along with the finales for Once Upon a Time and Revenge. News
In the lead-up to the upfronts, NBC gave an expected sixth season order to Parks and Recreation. It also cancelled troubled comedies Whitney (which got rid of its most interesting aspect when Maulik Pancholy‘s character was written out) and 1600 Penn as well as comedies Up All Night (which was expected, considering the show’s many troubles) and Guys with Kids.
Leslie Knope wins another one.
Fox took care of an expected cancellation notice, axing Touch. However, with Kiefer Sutherland free, Fox is now talking about reviving 24 as a limited series. I’m all for the return to comedy mini-series on Broadcast TV.
Meanwhile, fans of Nikita can breathe a sigh of relief as the series’ fourth season was announced. It sounds like »

If the May upfront presentations are like Christmas for me, this week is the one when kids watch every package to come out of the car trunk, looking for clues to what thrills will be discovered under the tree. A few hints came from NBC today as they officially cancelled Deception. (Somebody find Victor Garber a good show, please!). It also passed on seven pilots, including ones starring Tbl-faves Dave Annable, Chris Zylka, Jesse Lee Soffer and Stephen Guarino.
Meanwhile, Variety says that NBC will announce a decision on bubble shows like The New Normal, Go On and Community today. According to Variety, NBC is inclined to clean house with its comedies but there’s a chance some shows will get a 13-episode order to use as midseason replacements.

When Charles Ramsey heroically rescued Amanda Berry and her young daughter from his neighbor Ariel Castro’s basement in Ohio, the terrified woman revealed her little girl was fathered by her own captor. Watch his shocking CNN interview.
Charles Ramsey, the man credited with rescuing all three women who were held captive in an Ohio basement, was the first person to see Amanda Berry, 27, and her young daughter Jocelyn, 6, after they escaped Ariel Castro‘s basement. Charles revealed to CNN’s Anderson Cooper that both escaped women were extremely frightened — and little Jocelyn cried for her father.
Amanda Berry: Ariel Castro Is Her Daughter’s Father
Charles heard people screaming near his neighbor Ariel Castro’s house, and walked out to find a woman in the basement crying for help. When Charles broke through the door and let Amanda and her daughter out, he discovered the shocking truth of Jocelyn’s father. »

Spain's openly lesbian politician Ángeles Álvarez is encouraging closeted women to come out. She's like "Look, guys, I did it and I survived!"
Susan moves in her lesbian girlfriend, which riles [her dad]. He is very Ocd about everything.
If NeNe Leakes were gay, I feel like she'd be out about it, considering she's on two of the gayest TV shows on air. But Real Housewives lesbian rumors just keep on happening.

From hospital hallways to haunted hotels, corridors are coming into their own as the entryway to great cinema
This week's Clip joint is by Lauren Mullineaux, a freelance journalist and cultural critic based in Manchester. If you've got an idea for a future Clip joint, drop and email to email@example.com
Walk with me. TV may have made pacing through hallways sexy, but the movies showed us long ago that the corridor isn't as boring as you might think.
Long and unseemly, they're classically associated with the horror genre, but their appearance in every building ever made means a corridor scene is fast becoming a cinematic staple.
Whether in a school, a house, a hotel or even a spaceship the corridor gives film-makers a location in which to ramp up suspense or cripple viewers with anxiety. After all, where else are all the bodies supposed to go? »
I don't know what to say about the explosions in Boston. Information is changing so fast anything I write will be out of date. What we know as I'm writing this is that two bombs went off, most likely set in trash cans. Three people are dead, including an eight-year-old boy, and 141 people are injured. The FBI has taken over the investigation. On the bright side, people rushed to help rather than running away, and NBC has reported that some marathon runners kept running after the race straight to the hospital to give blood. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by what is officially being called an act of terrorism.

TV Guide talks with Spartacus creator Steven DeKnight, who reveals that the meeting between Crassus and Spartacus was originally written to be used to audition potential Spartacus actors but was eventually worked into the series. DeKnight also goes into detail about why various characters got the ending they did, including the rationale behind Nagron's end.
I'm way behind on The Following but Vulture's list of all the mistakes law enforcement has made so far sure make it sound like a show that relies on an idiot plot.
If you weren't aware of at least five of Buzzfeed's forgotten sketch comedy shows, I'm shaking my head at you.

Da Vinci's Demons spreads its wings tonight.
Patrick Duffy says he'd like to participate in a Step by Step reunion movie and that it would be interesting to see how the Lambert family grew up. I just hope such a series spawns a serious topical drama that desperately adds a laugh track when ratings tank, giving the Tgif generation a The Bradys of their own.
You've seen me complain that the dark side of a golden age of television is a too-full DVR that make it challenging to keep up with all the good shows (as well as the guilty pleasures and hate watching) available. It also means that shows like Southland and Switched at Birth don't quite get the attention they deserve. I'm still looking for time to get caught up on Game of Thrones, much less time to get to that third episode of Top of the Lake. »

From the sound of things, you should plan ahead and arrange for a group hug to be waiting for you
after watching tonight's Glee.
Syfy released a lot of news yesterday and probably the biggest revelation is that it ordered a fourth season of Being Human.
The channel also ordered a bunch of series and pilots. That included a pilot of High Moon from "television icon" (I'm going to use that title in the future, I sound too much like a fanboy when I call him a "god of teleplays") Bryan Fuller, and developing seven other dramas set in space. Every so often I'll see a complaint about how Syfy doesn't have any shows set in space (a big part of science fiction, admittedly), clearly they're trying to address that.
Syfy also ordered a few series including a horror anthology series from Jamie Foxx to air as part of Syfy's Halloween programming. »
Audiences love him and networks want him, and that's why Anderson Cooper easily earns a spot on the 2013 edition of The Hollywood Reporter's 35 Most Powerful People in Media. The dashing host of Anderson Cooper 360, 45, is not only CNN's biggest star, he's also an ongoing contributor to CBS News ratings juggernaut 60 Minutes. Only Anderson Live -- currently taping its second and final season -- seemed out of reach of his Midas touch. But with his CNN contract set to expire in the fall, Cooper, who came out as gay last July (earning him a special GLAAD merit badge from Madonna), finds

Oh, Southland, why do you inspire such conflicting emotions?
CNN is giving a weekly primetime show to CBC host George Stroumboulopoulos, according to Deadline. The show would feature interviews and musical guests filmed before a live audience. I know he's an incredibly popular host in Canada, I'm eager to see his interviews come stateside (and let's hope this goes better than it did with Graham Norton).
I'm never particularly excited about The Good Wife's political cameos due to the politicians they pick and booking Michael Bloomberg for an upcoming ep doesn't change that. We'll talk again if they ever get Elizabeth Warren.

A new web series called In the Deep follows four friends in London's East End, including Emilia, who "has a confusing ‘thing’ with Riley, her straight best friend who also has a boyfriend."
Here's the first episode.
I think it's going to be Real World meets Tuf, and I don't know, I have this idea or joke actually that all the girls are going to be like lesbians or hooking up with all the girls, and all the boys are going on there with hope thinking like, "we're gonna be the first guys that have chicks on the show and this is going to be awesome." And the girls are going to be like, "no boys allowed. »

Deadline thinks that The Carrie Diaries has a decent shot at renewal thanks to online viewership, hoping that Carrie will mirror Heart of Dixie's performance, which was able to turn streaming viewers into improved ratings in the second season. Carrie may be starting to get on my nerves the way her adult self did, but it would be a shame to lose Walt so soon. Meanwhile, the ratings challenged Nikita is likely get a final season to wrap its storylines.
Don't expect a third season of The Glee Project this summer. TVLine reported yesterday that the competition won't be returning to Oxygen due to a mix of low ratings and that Glee's next season still isn't official. However, an Oxygen spokesperson told TheWrap that the Glee companion series is merely "on hold. »
