As fallout from a May 23 New York Times interview that resulted in apologies from three “Arrested Development” actors continues, Netflix has canceled the cast’s promotional trip across the pond. “We had planned to have most of the ‘Arrested Development’ cast in London this week to support the launch of the new season and meet fans,” said the studio in a statement reported by Deadline and confirmed by IndieWire. “At this time we have decided not to move ahead with promotional activity in the U.K. but hope to bring the cast back at another time.”

Adam Levine, James Corden Pulled Over by Cops During Carpool Karaoke

Adam Levine, James Corden Pulled Over by Cops During Carpool Karaoke
James Corden was finding it, ahem, a little harder to breathe when the police pulled him over during Carpool Karaoke with Adam Levine.

The Late Late Show host was joined by the Voice coach on Thursday, where they made their way through much of the Maroon 5 songbook… sans members two through five. (It’s five of ’em, right? There’s the guitarist with the long hair and then, umm… those other guys.) Among the setlist was “This Love,” “Moves Like Jagger,” “Sugar” and “She Will Be Loved,” the last of which was interrupted when the cops stopped them for creating a traffic hazzard.

‘Parks and Recreation’ Revival: Amy Poehler Confirms the Cast ‘Would All Do’ More Episodes
NBC’s beloved sitcom “Parks and Recreation” signed off the air in February 2015, but a potential revival is already on the mind of series star Amy Poehler. During a visit to “Ellen” on May 24, Poehler confirmed she’s “absolutely” on board with the idea of another season of “Parks and Recreation,” and the comedian even added that she’s certain her co-stars “would all do” more episodes and return to Pawnee, Indiana.

“Absolutely,” Poehler said when asked about a potential revival. “I know, I’ll speak for everybody and say we would all do it. I think we’d all do it someday. It would be amazing.”

Poehler was joined on “Ellen” by her “Parks and Recreation” co-star Nick Offerman, who also expressed interest in stepping back into the shoes of Ron Swanson. “Amy’s the boss of the show,” Offerman said, “so she can speak for everybody.”

Jim Jefferies Reveals the Secret Behind Brad Pitt’s Weatherman Appearances

Jim Jefferies Reveals the Secret Behind Brad Pitt’s Weatherman Appearances
Jim Jefferies has a secret to tell about Brad Pitt. The movie actor has shown up several times on Comedy Central’s “The Jim Jefferies Show” as its unofficial weatherman, casually sharing the horrors of climate change. But here’s the truth: Pitt hasn’t dropped by in a year.

“This is the one that went viral, even though it was recorded a year ago,” Jefferies said of a recent Brad Pitt segment. The show had leftover footage of Brad doing a LeBron James joke, which felt timely because of the NBA playoffs. Slayer guitarist Kerry King happened to be on set, so they put him in front of a green screen, and it looked like the musician was a fan trying to talk to him.

“And then Gayle King is on the news going, ‘Wow, Brad Pitt must really love Jim Jefferies, he’s back on the show!’ I

10 Fun Facts You Didn’t Know about Elizabeth Gillies

When first looking at her you might think that Elizabeth Gillies is kind of stuck up and the type of woman that would gladly tell you to what to go do with yourself. But when you listen to her it seems that she’s very down to earth and aside from the glitz and glamour that’s a part of Hollywood she’s a very simple person. She enjoys a lot of the simpler things in life and just wants to get along like anyone else would. That kind of shatters the stereotype of ‘pretty girl in Hollywood being stuck up’ and gladly

Rockets’ Defiant NBA Playoff Win Proves Ratings Champ Against Slow Big 4 Night

In an NBA conference playoffs year that has been full of drama, the Houston Rockets’ 98-94 victory over current champions the Golden State Warriors on Thursday certainly cranked it up on an otherwise placid primetime. With the Rockets now leading 3-2 in the best-of-7 Western Conference Finals, Houston is only one win away from its first trip to the NBA Finals since Bill Clinton's first term as President. It is a journey that has attracted a lot of attention — last night's…

Blue Bloods Boss Stands by Linda's Death, Weighs In on Flashback Idea

As we neared the first anniversary of Linda Reagan’s tragic death on Blue Bloods (as pinpointed by the tombstone Danny visited in the Season 8 finale), showrunner Kevin Wade stood by his decision to kill off the character between seasons, off-camera — even though, nary a Friday night goes by where TVLine doesn’t see a surge in traffic to our previous reporting on Amy Carlson’s exit from the CBS drama.

“We were in a tough position there. I was between a rock and a hard place, because the simple fact of the matter was that the actress decided not to renew her contract,

The 25 Best Episodes of ‘Arrested Development,’ Ranked

Even before this month’s surprise drop of a Season 4 Remix on Netflix, it would have been near impossible to rank every “Arrested Development.” (Our hooks off to those sites that have.) Some installments take much different paths to the series’ most satisfying moments, so it’s difficult to put into context whether the show’s more intricately plotted episodes are.

The episodes that would take up the bottom of a full ranking still have their moments. But far more satisfying than figuring out the middling installments on the low end of the show’s quality, we thought we’d highlight the best the show had to offer.

One thing you won’t see on this list: the Season 4 remix. Though an admirable experiment, we opted to use the episodes as originally intended. Still by volume and by proportion of legendary episodes, most of these are from the show’s initial three-season run,

‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’ Review: Overlong and Overplotted, Amazon’s Gorgeous Adaptation Can’t Recapture the Magic

Joan Lindsay’s novel “Picnic at Hanging Rock” was a mere 212 pages when first printed in 1967. Peter Weir’s 1975 movie of the same name clocked in under two hours (115 minutes). Both have been praised for their mysterious takes on the story of four women who disappear in the Australian bush — the novel for framing the events as a true story (it wasn’t) and the film for its challenging, open-ended conclusion, among other attributes for both.

The new TV adaptation builds on many of these same traits, but a funny thing happens when you try to elongate a surreal horror story by providing explicit details: It gets boring. In extending the length to a six-hour limited series, Amazon’s 2018 version loses much of the original works’ imaginative appeal even while providing added agency to its characters. Each of the key students at Mrs. Hester Appleyard’s (Natalie Dormer) school (as

Gone, But Not Forgotten: The 5 Best Movies and TV Series Leaving Netflix in June 2018

Captain America: Civil War – It’s a shame that right as Infinity War hits theaters and other great Marvel movies (like Thor: Ragnarok) hit this platform, the single greatest film in the entire Marvel canon is stripped from Netflix’s ranks. It is the most perfectly realized, exciting and dramatic film of the entire monolithic mega-franchise, and yet has to go right when revisiting it would have the most meaning for the avid Marvel fan. In what is essentially Avengers 2.5, we get a narrative, deconstructive takedown of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. Directors Russo and Russo
