We all know the refrain by now: remakes and reboots are a prime example of a creatively bankrupt Hollywood. The trend has gotten so ridiculous that now we have reboots and remakes within years of each other, studios throwing cinematic spaghetti at its old properties to see what sticks. Some do it right. After the success of The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, Phil Lord and Chris Miller will have to fight tooth and nail to avoid sinking under a pile of desired reboots and reimaginings. Others projects, meanwhile, seem to hold little sense at all – like turning a dangerous tale of high school obsession (Endless Love) into a positive romance. But what’s really frustrating is that our modern reboot culture rarely picks the properties that are still relevant today – the setups that can tap into a modern message while exploring the evolution of old ideas. Some projects are trying – we now have a Girl Meets World sequel »

Mr. Feeny, he of Boy Meets World and subsequent Facebook meme “Feeny’s Birthday!!!” fame, made an appearance during the last few seconds of Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World. He was there, and then he instantly disappeared into the subway mist. It was almost like ... he'd become a ghost. In fact, we're gonna take a bold stance and say that Mr. Feeny, played to acclaim by William Daniels, really is a ghost. Here is our evidence. Last known sightings (on Boy Meets World):When Boy Meets World wrapped its final episode 14 years ago, Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) remarked that Mr. Feeny would always be with the characters, no matter where they went. Some fans think Feeny’s final words on Boy Meets World were definitive proof that he’d only serve as a spiritual mentor for Cory going forward: “I love you all … class dismissed,” he said to an empty classroom. »

The Show | Penny Dreadful
The Episode | “Grand Guignol”
The Airdate | June 29, 2014
The Performance | Although Penny Dreadful has dazzled us with everything from vampire attacks to demonic possessions, the series’ most resonant moments may also have been its most human. Hear Read us out. In the first season finale, Frankenstein’s monster – Caliban to his friend, singular – was shown compassion once too often by his crush, Grand Guignol starlet Maud, setting in motion a series of events that allowed Kinnear to shine a spotlight not only on the »
We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Girl Meets World, Under the Dome, 24: Live Another Day and Pretty Little Liars!

Girl Meets World–which premiered on Disney Channel this past week–could really be dubbed a permanent ’90s Throwback Thursday (that’s technically airing on Fridays). In honor of this week’s Throwback Thursday, let’s hash out a very specific, very ’90s question: What is the all-time best episode of Boy Meets World?
As is the case with long-running shows (Boy Meets World aired from 1993 to 2000), there are a ton of options, and it’s a bit of a tough call. Do you go with one early in the series’ run that gave us an iconic moment (like, say, »

There are a record number of scripted programs on television this summer, but young adults by and large are choosing their reality-show favorites instead.
In a week that saw the return of “Big Brother” (pictured), nine of the week’s top 10 original series telecasts in adults 18-49 were reality shows, with only HBO’s “True Blood” sneaking in. Cracking the top 20, though, were Fox’s “24: Live Another Day,” Disney Channel’s “Girl Meets World” and VH1′s “Hit the Floor.”
The same-night ratings bar has been lowered again this summer for scripted programming, as viewers have ever-more options and platforms to watch programs. The top scripted newcomer remains NBC’s “The Night Shift,” which on Monday was renewed for a second season, while TNT’s “The Last Ship” is the best-looking cable rookie, declining only slightly in its second week.
Overall last week, it was a very tight race »

Stuart Minkus was perhaps the most memorable character from the first season of "Boy Meets World." Cory was neurotic but normal; Topanga was a space cadet; Mr. Feeny wasn't a glorious sage yet. Minkus, meanwhile, dominated his scenes with smart-aleck comic asides and an unforgettable speaking voice. We've missed him. Now, 20 years later, he's back in the spinoff series "Girl Meets World" as a relative of the new show's Minkus proxy Farkle. Of course! Check out the above clip to see how Minkus (Lee Norris) has aged since his days as a sixth grade snob. »

You don't need to be a 13-year-old girl to like Girl Meets World, the new Boy Meets World spinoff. Sure, the Disney Channel show may be targeted toward a younger crowd, and Ben Savage told us it's for "a new generation." But if you loved Cory and Shawn way back when, then you won't be able to help but love this series, too, because it's just like the '90s sitcom. No, seriously. In the Girl Meets World pilot, we're introduced to a goofy protagonist, a tough Bff, a quirky brother, and plenty of other Boy Meets World similarities, including a familiar name or three. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the show with all the set pictures, and then keep reading to see how Girl Meets World is exactly like Boy Meets World - in a good way! »

Did you know Kellie Pickler turned 28? We thought she had to be at least 40. This American Idol contestant is only 28? How long has American Idol been on? At least 30 years...right? Either way, Happy birthday, Kellie Pickler.
We can’t resist a new puppy, and Miley Cyrus can’t either. According to her Instagram, she has a new little baby named Emu. This puppy comes a couple of months after she gave back her other new puppy, Moonie, which was her puppy after her other puppy, Floyd, died. This story became too complicated for just a cute puppy picture.

Meshach Taylor, best known for his Emmy-nominated role as eccentric assistant Anthony Bouvier on Designing Women, died Saturday evening after battling a terminal illness, his agent confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter. He was 67.
The actor’s family took to Facebook earlier on Saturday to say, “It is with love and gratitude that we sorrowfully announce that our darling, amazingly brilliant and dynamic, Meshach, the incredible father, husband, son and friend has begun his grand transition,” the family wrote. “Our friends who know and love us, please offer your prayers for his peace and blazing light as he ascends to the heavens. »
The premiere of Girl Meets World starring Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel on Disney Channel Friday night capped two years of anticipation following the announcement of the sequel/spin-off of the former ABC Tgif sitcom, Boy Meet World. Pent-up demand should have resulted in stellar Girl Meets World ratings, and it would have had the series premiere not been widely available to watch for free weeks beforehand.
A total of 5.2 million total viewers tuned in Friday evening to watch the Girl Meets World series premiere on Disney Channel. That topped the previous 2014 Disney Channel premiere of I Didn't Do It's by a total of 1.3 million viewers.
The Girl Meets World ratings topped all 2014 new series launches for all three kids demos ranging in ages from 2-14. By all measures the premiere was a success, but theoretically the ratings could have been higher.
Disney Channel decided to offer a free »
It's ironic that the pilot episode of "Girl Meets World," the new Disney Channel spinoff of ABC's beloved '90s comedy "Boy Meets World," focuses so much on young Riley Matthews' (Rowan Blanchard) adolescent identity crisis when you remember that "Boy Meets World" never quite figured out its own identity. The show started as a silly middle-school farce, then evolved into a slightly cooler high school comedy with rewritten characters (Shaun Hunter was now more serious; Eric Matthews was suddenly a dolt) before shifting to a melodramatic, sentimental style centered on Cory and Topanga's (Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel) relationship and marriage. If Riley Matthews, Cory and Topanga's preteen daughter who's beginning to establish her independence on "Girl Meets World," can establish more consistency than her dad's old series, she'll make it out Ok. Unfortunately, the premiere of "Girl Meets World" is a mess of incomprehensible kiddy comedy and "Full House"-type cloying moments. »

If you've been around the site for a while then you may remember my love for Boy Meets World which I professed in this DVD review nearly four years ago. That devotion in mind, I'm choosing to write about last night's premiere of Girl Meets World in this week's opening paragraph in spite of the fact that I'm a 27-year-old man. While the pilot may have been a little too on the nose about Gmw being young Riley Matthews' chance to discover the world like her parents did before her, I still enjoyed the heck out of it. Played well by Rowan Blanchard, the character of Riley looks to be a great blend of Cory and Topanga as she is hopelessly awkward around the new boy at school and stresses out about the possibility of missing a homework assignment in a way that young Cory Matthews would have never dreamed. »

The long-awaited series premiere of "Girl Meets World" did big numbers for Disney Channel on Friday (June 27) night, but it still couldn't keep up with its lead-in, the original movie "Zapped." Airing at 8 p.m., "Zapped" drew 5.7 million viewers, including 1.3 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic. "Zapped" became the top cable telecast of 2014 in several of Disney Channel's key demos, including kids 2-11 (2.9 million), kids 6-11 (2.3 million) and tweens 9-14 (2.1 million). Airing at 9:45 p.m., "Girl Meets World" drew 5.2 million viewers. Again, Disney Channel accentuated the young demos in which this was the top series launch of 2014, as the "Boy Meets World" spinoff drew 1.7 million viewers in the tween demo and 2.3 million among kids 2-11. Both "Zapped" and "Girl Meets World" have been available on the Disney Channel Watch ap and on iTunes since June 23. As a point of comparison, NBC's "Crossbones" started off reasonably strong a month ago, »

“Girl Meets World,” the Disney Channel's sequel series to '90s sitcom “Boy Meets World,” debuted Friday to 5.2 million total viewers. The series launch is the biggest of 2014 among demographics including kids 2-11 (2.3 million/5.7 rating), kids 6-11 (1.8 million/7.7 rating) and tweens 9-14 (1.7 million/6.9 rating). Also read: ‘Girl Meets World’ Premiere Is Sanitized for Your Kids’ Protection “Girl Meets World” — which stars original cast members Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel as parents to a new curious, young protagonist played by Rowan Blanchard – also set viewing records on the Watch Disney Channel app and iTunes after being released on the platforms last. »

Disney Channel’s bet on rekindling the “Tgif” audience paid off on Friday as sitcom “Girl Meets World” opened solidly, drawing 5.2 million viewers and many more online via the Watch Disney Channel app and iTunes.
“Zapped” opened at 8 p.m. to 5.7 million viewers, enough to make it the top-rated cable telecast of the year to date in kids 2-11 (2.9 million), kids 6-11 (2.3 million) and tweens 9-14 (2.1 million). However, “Zapped” fell short of the high bar set last summer by Disney Channel’s retro beach-party musical “Teen Beach Movie,” which garnered 8.4 million viewers in its July 2013 debut.
“Girl” bowed at 9:45 p.m. with 2.3 million viewers in kids 2-11, 1.8 million in kids 6-11 and 1.7 million in tweens.
In a clear sign that »
