‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Renewed for Season Three by Amazon (Exclusive)

‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Renewed for Season Three by Amazon (Exclusive)
Amy Sherman-Palladino got her wish. Amazon has renewed “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” for a third season.

The creator/executive producer of “Mrs. Maisel” prodded Amazon executives about a pickup on Saturday night as she accepted a Peabody Award for her 1950s-set dramedy about an Upper West Side housewife who ventures into standup comedy after her picture-perfect marriage falls apart.

“You’re going to give it to us because we’re bringing home the fancy thing, right?” Sherman-Palladino said of the Peabody win for the show’s freshman season.

Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke, who attended the ceremony at Cipriani Wall Street,

Peabody Awards: Issa Rae, John Oliver, Carol Burnett, Hasan Minhaj Celebrate the Power of Television

Peabody Awards: Issa Rae, John Oliver, Carol Burnett, Hasan Minhaj Celebrate the Power of Television
Comedian Hasan Minhaj set a serious-but-irreverent tone right from the start at Saturday’s 77th annual Peabody Awards in New York, where kudos were presented to a range of news, documentary, public service and entertainment programs.

Host Minhaj opened the evening by noting the odd contrast of handing out awards for excellence in TV and digital media at a venue in the heart of the financial district, Cipriani Wall Street.

“This is the wokest award show in the least woke location,” Minhaj joked. “Are the Pulitzers being handed out at Mar-a-Lago?” Later in the ceremony, Minhaj had a zinger for Vice President Mike Pence. He noted that most people were unsettled by the themes in one of 2017’s honorees, Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “unless of course you’re the Vice President, and then this show is the breakout comedy of the year.”

Tracy Morgan Loves Us All, and There’s ‘Not a Motherf—king Thing’ We Can Do About It

Tracy Morgan Loves Us All, and There’s ‘Not a Motherf—king Thing’ We Can Do About It
Just hours before showing up during Tina Fey’s cold open on “Saturday Night Live,” Tracy Morgan appeared at Vulture Festival to share an important message: He loves us all, and there’s “not a motherfucking thing you can do about it.” Now starring on “The Last O.G.” after years on “SNL” and “30 Rock,” the actor and comedian was several injured in a car accident four years ago. His friend and collaborator James McNair was killed in the crash, and Morgan’s recovery took well over a year.

“Y’all seen that fucking accident. Don’t play coy. Y’all seen it. I’m here talking to you now. With all my faculties, talking to you. There was no fucking way I was supposed to walk away from that,” he said.

Things have slowly gotten better for the funny man in the four years since he suffered a brain injury and nearly died.

‘SNL’ Cold Open Channels ‘The Sopranos’ Finale With Alec Baldwin, Robert De Niro, and Ben Stiller — Watch
For its season finale, “Saturday Night Live” decided to channel a show with one of the most (in)famous series finales of all time: “The Sopranos.” Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump took the Tony Soprano role, because of course he did, and was joined in the show’s cold open by both regular cast members and other special guests.

Before any of his guests to join him at Holsten’s Restaurant in Bloomfield, New Jersey, Trump turns on the jukebox so we can listen to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” once again. Giuliani shows up first to talk about his most recent appearances on Fox News, and after being thanked for his services assures his boss that he’s “the best and last client I’ll ever have.”

Cohen arrives next, visibly shaken by his ongoing legal troubles: “They said I might get 20 years unless I give you up,

‘Jessica Jones’ Team on Genre Show’s Timeliness, Being Ahead of the Curve on #MeToo

“From the very beginning when we started this journey, Jessica has always been a character who has been very of its time,” Marvel’s Head of TV, Jeph Loeb, told Variety on Saturday.

Loeb appeared at Netflix’s Fysee panel event, moderated by Variety’s own executive editor of TV, Debra Birnbaum, in honor of the second season of Marvel’s “Jessica Jones.” Rachael Taylor, who plays Jessica’s best friend-cum-sister Trish Walker, praised how the series “always puts character first while diving into all these different social issues. It’s so unexpected for a genre show but such a joy for us to play.

The 4 Worst TV Show Titles of Fall 2018 and Suggestions on How to Fix Them

The 4 Worst TV Show Titles of Fall 2018 and Suggestions on How to Fix Them
What’s in a name? It could be a TV show’s destiny. The name of a TV series could make or break it, depending on if viewers are even willing to give it a chance. It’s a foot in the door, and sometimes that foot will get slammed if the audience is put off by its title. Remember “$#*! My Dad Says,” “Gcb,” or “The Knights of Prosperity”? There’s a reason you don’t.

For the 2017 Fall TV season, IndieWire called out four shows — “9Jkl,” “The Orville,” “Ten Days in the Valley,” and “Wisdom of the Crowd” — for their poor title choices. Of the lot, only “The Orville” survives, which may be more of a testament to the love for Seth Macfarlane and his specific brand of humor mixed with a love of “Star Trek.” Oddly enough, “The Orville” was probably the worst title of them all. Therefore,

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Tina Fey’s Finale Addresses the Season’s Issues but Also Doesn’t Care

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Tina Fey’s Finale Addresses the Season’s Issues but Also Doesn’t Care
The thing to understand about Tina Fey as an “SNL” host is that while she has her fingerprints on some truly brilliant comedy (both in the TV and film realms), her tenure on the show as a cast member wasn’t about being the star of the show. She’s not a Kate McKinnon or a Cecily Strong or an Aidy Bryant, she wasn’t a Kristen Wiig or an Amy Poehler or a Maya Rudolph. In fact, back when she hosted “SNL” in 2013, her monologue joked about the fact that she had no recurring characters. She, of course, became the face of Weekend Update with Jimmy Fallon and then Amy Poehler, but Fey’s existence as a talent was never as the star until her host/guest appearances (like as Bedelia’s mother or especially as Sarah Palin). Because she’s “just… pleasant.”

So the expectation, unlike with other hosts,

The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Who’s Getting Married Soon?

The Bold and the Beautiful fans are going to see a very interesting wedding occur in the next few weeks, but we have no idea whose wedding this will be. You see, we all think it will be the wedding of Hope and Liam given the fact that Brooke is basically shoving them down an invisible aisle as they speak, but this might not be the truth. In fact, it might be the exact opposite in the near future. We think that there might be a chance they have to get their feet wet before they can get their situations
