The Best TV Pilots of the 21st Century, Ranked

  • Indiewire
There has been a lot of debate in recent years about the relevancy of the series pilot. In an age where so many cable networks, streaming services (and even broadcast networks) like to go straight to series, bypassing the pilot process, the question of whether the entire pilot process is necessary has been an open debate.

A few years ago, when then-Fox Entertainment president Kevin Reilly proclaimed the death of pilot season, he was referring to the short, frenzied period of time when every network goes after the same talent in order to produce multiple pilots all at once. Reilly wasn’t criticizing the art of the pilot itself, but just the outdated idea of everyone developing shows all at once.

Pilots, after all, can still be a good judge of whether a show can be sustained — and if it has been cast, written and produced properly. On the flip side,

‘Roseanne’ Takes a Swipe at ABC’s Minority-Led Comedies, and Suffers By Comparison
[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for “Roseanne” Season 10 Episode 3, “Roseanne Gets the Chair.]

In Tuesday’s new episode of “Roseanne,” “Roseanne Gets the Chair,” Roseanne and Dan Conner (Roseanne Barr and John Goodman) find themselves in a situation any hardworking couple of a certain age has experienced: Waking up from an unplanned nap on the couch, disoriented and shocked to have dozed through the entire evening.

“What time is it? Did I miss dinner?” Dan asks.

“It’s 11,” Roseanne says. “We slept from ‘Wheel’ to ‘Kimmel.'”

“We missed all the shows about black and Asian families,” Dan says.

“They’re just like us,” she says. “There, now you’re all caught up.”

Yep, credited writer Sid Youngers and the producers of “Roseanne” chose, with just their third episode on the air, to get snarky towards parent network ABC, the channel Dan and Roseanne clearly fell asleep watching (given the mention of “Jimmy Kimmel Live”). However,

Brandon Victor Dixon's Performance of "Superstar" Will Take You Straight to Glitter Heaven

You may remember Brandon Victor Dixon as the actor who addressed Mike Pence during a performance of Hamilton back in 2016, but now we have another reason to bow down to him thanks to his brilliant portrayal of Judas during NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar Live!. The musical, which aired Sunday night, had just about everyone taking to Twitter to share some hilarious and not-so religious opinions about Jesus Christ and the muscular characters, but Dixon stood out as a shining star, and it's not just because of his fashion choices. Fans were left with their jaws on the ground during his final performance of "Superstar." Watch the video and see when our spiritual and glitter-filled awakening took place.

Cinemaholics #58: Ready Player One Review

Plug in your headset of choice, because the Cinemaholics are ready to clash over their thoughts on Ready Player One, the new blockbuster feature from Steven Spielberg. Based on the book of the same name by Ernest Cline (who also helped write the screenplay with Zak Penn), the pic has a lot to say about virtual reality, nostalgia and what’s possible with CGI in 2018. But is it actually…good?

Later in the show, Will catches us up with his thoughts on the first few episodes of Barry, a new series on HBO starring Bill Hader, while he and Jon have a spirited discussion about Alex Inc., a new sitcom starring Zach Braff – but they mostly just talk about Scrubs for some reason.

Afterwards, Jon shares a crazy story about how he somehow inspired the writing of James Acaster in his new special Repertoire on Netflix, according to Acaster himself.

Zach Braff teases a potential Scrubs revival as a TV movie

It’s been eight years since Scrubs finished its run (or nine, if you’re discounting that rebooted ninth season), but as he prepares to make his return to ABC for the new comedy Alex, Inc., star Zach Braff has teased a potential reunion for the staff of Sacred Heart during an interview with Variety.

“We might do a TV movie — we daydream about that” said Braff when asked for his thoughts about revisiting the comedy series. “We’re all doing so many different things that we love, so the idea of going back and signing a long contract doing years and years of Scrubs is not on our minds. What’s more realistic is Bill and I are very close and we often laugh about what would it look like to do a two-hour movie — like what Psych did.”

Scrubs ran on NBC for its first seven seasons, before

Roseanne Denies Twitter’s Account of Her Trump Phone Call: ‘This Is Not True!’
Roseanne Barr is calling out Twitter on Thursday over what she said was a false Twitter Moment about the congratulatory phone call she received from President Donald Trump after the premiere of her new ABC sitcom. The right-leaning comedian specifically denied the social media platform’s assertion that Potus had called her to “thank her for her support.” “This Is Not True! he called me to say congratulations on the ratings! get it right!,” said Barr — adding an all caps flourish to drive home the point.

Ratings: Empire and Star Return Up, Ailing Life Sentence Sinks to (Gulp) 0.1
Empire‘s spring premiere on Wednesday — featuring Demi Moore’s violent swan song as psycho Claudia — drew 6.1 million viewers and a 2.0 demo rating on Wednesday, ticking up on both counts from the Fox drama’s midseason finale. Star, meanwhile, followed with modest gains of its own (4.7 mil/1.5).

With Mitovich taking the morning off, we’re eschewing the network-by-network breakdown in favor of a few notable nuggets:

* The CW’s Life Sentence entered D.O.A. territory in Week 4, notching 0.42 mil and a dreaded 0.1 in the demo.

Ratings: Zach Braff’s ‘Alex, Inc’ Premiere on ABC Is No ‘Roseanne’
Maybe Zach Braff should have stayed away from television for a little longer. Ok, so thats admittedly too harsh, but the “Scrubs” alum’s new ABC series “Alex, Inc.” didn’t impress much with its premiere ratings. To be fair to both Braff and ABC, the 8:30 p.m. sitcom had some stiff competition to contend with, including Fox’s return of “Empire.” Either way, the “Alex” debut finished last among the Big 4 networks in both ratings and total viewers. Thanks to that “Empire” comeback, Fox was first last night in key demo ratings. With “Survivor” and “Seal Team,” CBS ended up No. 1...

TV Review: ‘Alex, Inc.’ Starring Zach Braff

TV Review: ‘Alex, Inc.’ Starring Zach Braff
A sitcom about a guy who podcasts seems like a randomly generated punchline to a joke about media in 2018 — perhaps like one of the white cards in the game Cards Against Humanity, a phrase just waiting to fit the blank space of a setup. In this case, the white card is “Alex, Inc.,” and the setup is something snarky about increasingly Balkanized media demographics. No one laughs.

“Alex, Inc.” is an adaptation of Alex Blumberg’s popular 2014 podcast “StartUp,” a real-time chronicle of how he worked to get a media company off the ground. Blumberg brought listeners into every detail
