'Friends With Better Lives': James Van Der Beek and Kevin Connolly, 'Friends' by any other name

31 March 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Right after one group of friends signs off, new friends will be introduced ... by a former writer-producer of "Friends," no less.

Immediately following the series finale of CBS' "How I Met Your Mother" Monday (Mar. 31), the network will debut the sitcom "Friends With Better Lives." The premise of longtime acquaintances in amusing situations -- mainly revolving around their differing relationship levels -- may seem familiar, but it's served up by a fresh ensemble cast merging established TV faces and relative newcomers.

Will (played by "Dawson's Creek" alum James Van Der Beek) is struggling to adjust after his recent divorce; Jules (actress-model Brooklyn Decker) is newly engaged to visibly amorous Lowell (Rick Donald); Kate (Zoe Lister-Jones, "Whitney") is a career-driven serial dater; and the married Bobby (Kevin Connolly, "Entourage") and Andi (Majandra Delfino, "Roswell") observe their friends' allegedly better lives somewhat enviously.

Gratified that sitcom-directing master James Burrows ("The Millers," "Will & Grace") guided the premiere, »

26 March 2014 2:23 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Kevin Smith, late-night TV host?

We could easily see that. AMC is developing a late-night talk show titled Hollywood Babble-On, starring Smith and the co-host of his popular podcast, Ralph Garman. AMC also has renewed Smith’s docu-series Comic Book Men for a fourth season. And that’s not all: AMC is  teaming with Smith on the development of a docuseries featuring collector Comic Book Men regular Robert Bruce, following him and other expects as  they comb the country searching real estate sales, auction houses and flea markets to find rare items (sort of like Antiques Roadshow for geeks).

27 January 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Thanks to her sitcom's success, Beth Behrs hardly is broke.

She and Kat Dennings are two of television's most recognizable actresses as the stars of "2 Broke Girls," Mondays on CBS, to the degree they were enlisted as hosts of the network's telecast of the 40th Annual People's Choice Awards recently. (Their series had two nominations, after winning favorite new TV comedy honors its first year.)

In the show's third season, which has seen it return to its original slot after a move to a later time, the lively Behrs still feels good about the weekly misadventures of waitresses, roommates and cupcake-selling entrepreneurs Caroline and Max.

24 January 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Nothing really surprises Lena Dunham. If you've seen Girls, you know she's seen, imagined, or tried nearly everything. But Justin Bieber's alleged choice of drugs on the wild night that landed him in jail? That little discovery inspired the actress to chime in on the pop star's misfortunes this week. Meanwhile, in an attempt to understand what has led Justin astray, Seth Meyers pinpointed the moment everything went downhill. In other can't-miss tweets, Ellen is cashing in on marijuana trends, and Kelly Osbourne had a pretty crappy time at Barney's. Keep reading to Lol at all that and more! The only crazy part of Justin Bieber arrest is that he was "popping anti-depressants all day." Anti-depressants take like 3 months to work. — Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) January 23, 2014 Lena, don't you know Justin is planning for his future? I blame Kate McKinnon #Bieber http://t.co/wSDCqkf3wE — Seth Meyers (@sethmeyers) January »
