The Directors Guild of America has released its best and worst lists of TV shows that hire female and minority directors.
Four out of the 27 worst violators — shows that had no minorities or women directing — were HBO productions, including “Boardwalk Empire,” “The Brink,” “The Comeback” and Cinemax/HBO’s “Banshee.”
The year’s top network in diverse hires was Bet, which had three shows — “Being Mary Jane,” “The Game,” “Single Ladies” — with 100% minority or female directors. CBS’ “The McCarthys” came in at No. 4 at 93%. (See full list below)

Disney Channel’s 13-year-old “Girl Meets World” star Rowan Blanchard posted a three-part essay on the importance of intersectional feminism to Instagram on Saturday. Responding to a tumblr user asking for her thoughts on the term “white feminism,” Blanchard posted an essay discussing the importance of including diverse points of view in feminist activism, including women of color as well as transgender women. “The way a black woman experiences sexism and inequality is different from the way a white woman experiences sexism and inequality,” the actress wrote. “Likewise with trans-women and Hispanic women.” Also read: 'Girl Meets World' Stars Rowan Blanchard, »

A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” may no longer be a ratings juggernaut, but it proved with Wednesday’s eighth-season finale that it still has plenty of fans.
Wednesday’s hourlong episode, in which Willie and Korie Robertson’s eldest son, 19-year-old John Luke, tied the knot with fiancee Mary Kate McEacharn in a ceremony at the Robertson farmhouse, averaged a 1.04 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.26 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” ratings. This made it cable’s No. 1 program on Wednesday in both categories, while it ranked No. 2 among all television originals in men 18-34 (behind only CBS’ “Big Brother”).
“Duck Dynasty” was up week to week by 20% in the demo and by more than 1 million total viewers (from 2.22 million). These are the show’s best numbers in 19 episodes — since its season six finale in August of last year (1.4 in 18-49, 3.81 million viewers overall).

Back in September, we reported that Sony Pictures Television is developing a spinoff of the beloved 1990s sitcom Married with Children, which would star David Faustino as Bud Bundy, who is grown up with a family of his own. We haven't heard anything regarding the spinoff since then, but, E! Online caught up with original Married With Children stars David Faustino and Christina Applegate, who confirmed that the Married...With Children Spinoff is in the works. Here's what David Faustino had to say.
"Sony has it. They're excited about it. They're working out some legal issues that we hope they work out. The whole cast, including Christina, is down to do little bits in it. The idea would be a pilot for a spinoff. That's all I can say right now. It involves me and few other people."
Earlier this year, Netflix announced that it would bring the popular late '80s/early '90s sitcom "Full House" back to life in the newly (aptly) titled "Fuller House". John Stamos, who starred as "Uncle Jesse" Katsopolis is serving as executive producer on the series and will star along with original players Bob Saget as Danny Tanner, Candace Cameron-Bure as DJ Tanner, Jodie Sweetin as Stephanie Tanner, Andrea Barder as wacky neighbor Kimmy Gibbler, and Dave Coulier as uncle Joey - among others. However, more than nearly any other character, fans have been anxious to hear if Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen -- who as a pair played the precocious and adorable Michelle Tanner -- may return. At today's TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour Netflix chief content officer, Ted Sarandos said that the 29-year-old Olsen twins are in fact "teetering" on a decision to join.
