13 Reasons Why: You've Definitely Seen Tyler's Mom on Netflix Before

If you're obsessed with 13 Reasons Why and already binge-watched the new season, you may have noticed all the new faces to the series. We've gotten to meet several parental figures, including Tyler's mother. If she looks familiar to you, don't worry, you're not crazy - you've definitely seen her in another popular Netflix series.

Maria Dizzia, the actress who portrays Mrs. Down, also plays Polly Harper on Orange Is the New Black. You may remember her as Piper's former best friend . . . the one who ends up stealing her husband while she's away in prison.

Dizzia's TV career began with small roles on Law & Order, Fringe, and the short-lived Amy Smart crime series, Smith. One of her most notable roles was as the cult-den mother Katie in the 2011 thriller Martha Marcy May Marlene, which earned her a nomination for a Gotham Independent Film Award. She's also starred with Ben Stiller

Why Churn Is Good for Butter, but Not for TV (Guest Column)

Why Churn Is Good for Butter, but Not for TV (Guest Column)
The shiniest object in the media business continues to be buzzy, exclusive, original programming on streaming platforms. Its glittering allure attracts new subscribers, generates breathless press coverage, and brings smiling executives to awards shows.

However, another truth, perhaps a bit less glamorous but just as compelling, lies beneath the gleaming surface. It’s this: When the allure of the new stuff begins to grow thin, it’s the popular series and franchises from mainstream broadcast networks and Hollywood studios that help these streaming behemoths fight their biggest enemy: Churn.

Action-Packed First Trailer For The Magnum P.I. Reboot

I'll be honest, I wasn't too thrilled about CBS rebooting Magnum P.I. They cast Jay Hernandez in the role of Thomas Magnum and even though he's no Tom Selleck, this series actually looks like it could be good! This first trailer is certainly action-packed!

I also included trailers for the upcoming CBS series FBI and the Murphy Brown reboot in case you're interested in watching those. Check out the trailer and let us know if any of these shows interest you. Does Magnum P.I. look better than what you expected?

‘The Big Bang Theory’ Won’t Necessarily End This Upcoming Year, As CBS Aims For More Seasons

‘The Big Bang Theory’ Won’t Necessarily End This Upcoming Year, As CBS Aims For More Seasons
The Big Bang Theory” isn’t over yet, if CBS has any say in the matter. The smash half-hour sitcom is renewed through this upcoming season, the show’s 12th, but the Eye network is already looking to negotiate more.

The show, which ended Season 11 on a huge note with the wedding of Sheldon and Amy, remains a juggernaut for CBS. There have been plenty of indications that this season may be the show’s last — but CBS isn’t ready to say goodbye.

“As long as [executive producer] Chuck [Lorre] and his team think they have stories to tell, we would certainly hope to get a few more years out of it,” said CBS Entertainment senior executive vice president Thom Sherman. “It’s not slowing down. It has zero loss from a year ago.”

The network will air its “Murphy Brown” revival on Thursdays at 9:30 p.m., rather than on Mondays,

NBC 2018 Schedule: Bob Greenblatt Talks ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ Dick Wolf Wednesday and NBC’s Comedy Profile
Now the truth can be told. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” was never in danger of cancellation even after Fox dropped the comedy series because NBC had been eyeing it for some time.

NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt spoke Sunday about the decision to bring “Brooklyn,” produced by NBC’s sibling Universal TV unit, into the Peacock network fold, the revamp of Wednesdays into a three-stack of Dick Wolf’s “Chicago” dramas, and the state of NBC’s comedy brand.

Greenblatt held a conference call with reporters after NBC released its 2018-2019 primetime schedule, a lineup that brings only two new dramas and

Peak MD? NBC’s ‘New Amsterdam’ Series Order Makes 6 Medical Dramas on Broadcast TV

When it comes to intense dramas set in hospitals, is it possible to over-prescribe? Maybe, but we’re not there yet, at least judging from the upcoming television season.

There are currently five such shows airing on the Big 4 networks, and last Friday NBC announced it’s adding a new hospital wing in the 2018-2019 TV schedule, picking up the Ryan Eggold-led pilot “New Amsterdam” to series.

Per the logline, the medical drama “inspired by Bellevue, the oldest public hospital in America” focuses on “the brilliant and charming Dr. Max Goodwin,” who we’re told “sets out to tear up the bureaucracy and provide exceptional care,” won’t be “taking ‘no’ for an answer,” will “disrupt the status quo” and “stop at nothing to breathe new life” into the storied institution. Which is, by the way, “the only one in the world capable of treating Ebola patients, prisoners from Rikers and the President of the United States under one roof.”

Also Read: Fall TV 2018: Every Broadcast Show Canceled, Renewed and Ordered So Far (Updating)

If this synopsis sounds familiar, it’s because you’ve read many of these adjectives before in descriptions of, oh, every other medical drama on broadcast television.

At this moment, NBC is also home to “Chicago Med,” ABC touts “The Good Doctor” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” Fox has “The Resident,” and CBS houses “Code Black.” That means if all of them get renewed (and most of them have been already) “New Amsterdam” will bring us to an even half dozen medical drams overall.

So why did the network feel the need to order up 10 cc’s of another medical drama Stat? Well, that’s a good question, as the Nielsen numbers for this genre are all over the place, meaning it could either become a hit, provide the network with steady mid-range ratings, or tread water each week.

Also Read: 'Grey's Anatomy' Renewed for Season 15 at ABC

According to the most current season averages from Nielsen, “Chicago Med” is pulling in a 2.0 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, with “Grey’s Anatomy” scoring a 3.2, “The Good Doctor” earning a 3.4, “The Resident” posting a 1.7, and “Code Black” managing a 0.7, according to Nielsen. (That last one is not based on live + seven days of delayed viewing like the others, as the CBS series just returned for its third season two weeks ago.)

That means overall, “The Good Doctor” is currently the No. 9 show on broadcast, “Grey’s Anatomy” is 11, “Chicago Med” ties for 27th, “The Resident” ties for 42nd, and “Code Black” is ties at 138th. So, it’s not a completely safe bet, but in general it is a solid return on investment for most networks, which is why they are continuing to invest in the ones they have.

“Grey’s” was recently given a 15th season (after star Ellen Pompeo was bumped to a $20 million a year salary), while freshmen series “The Good Doctor” and “The Resident” were each granted a Season 2, and “Chicago Med” was just handed a fourth. The fate of “Code Black” has yet to be decided, though it is probably on the bubble once more.

Keeping in mind the ratings and renewal status of its soon-to-be competitors, what is going to make “New Amsterdam” standout in a sea of shows set in a hospital? A speciality — something all the doc-centric shows with a good prognosis have.

Also Read: Ratings: ABC's 'The Good Doctor' Grows Viewership in Freshman Season Finale

Shondaland’s “Grey’s” gives viewers their weekly dose of relationship drama among characters they’ve grown attached to for over a decade. “The Good Doctor” has Freddie Highmore playing an autistic doctor, something new there. The Resident,” as star Matt Czuchry told TheWrap in January, could be ‘The Shield” of the genre. “Chicago Med” is a Dick Wolf show, so it’s like “Law & Order,” but for hospitals. And “Code Black” focuses on the nation’s busiest ER.

Chances are it’s that Bellevue angle that NBC thinks will drive viewers mad for “New Amsterdam.” But only time, and fall ratings, will tell.

Aside from Eggold, the drama stars Freema Agyeman, Janet Montgomery, Jocko Sims, Anupam Kher and Tyler Labine.

David Schulner will write and executive produce the series from Universal Television, Pico Creek Productions and Mount Moriah, with Kate Dennis directing and executive producing the pilot. Peter Horton also executive produces, with Dr. Eric Manheimer grabbing a producing credit.

Zoe Saldana Receives Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Zoe Saldana Receives Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame
Shortly after the release of Avengers: Infinity War, actress Zoe Saldana has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The actress is best known for playing the assassin Gamora in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise and Avengers: Infinity War, in addition to having lead and supporting roles in other science fiction movies like the Star Trek franchise and Avatar.

Saldana began her acting career in 1999 when she appeared in two episodes of the popular TV series Law & Order.

After that, she went on to land a number of other significant roles, including Uhura in the rebooted Star Trek franchise and Neytiri in Avatar. Saldana is set to return as Neytiri in the next four slated Avatar movies.

It’s All-Out War In New Arrow Promo

Although Arrow did its best Law & Order impression last night, that didn’t mean it wasn’t a nail-biter of the highest order. In fact, it had many twists and turns to be enjoyed, in addition to Ricardo Diaz learning that he can’t win in every situation.

Long story short, we had two MVPs yesterday evening, with the obvious one being Christopher Chance Aka the Human Target, who posed as both Tommy Merlyn and the judge who overrode the jury’s decision, and acquitted Oliver Queen. The other, of course, was that of Black Siren, whose testimony went against Diaz’s wishes, thus making an incredible stride in her path toward redemption.

So, now that the Dragon’s Plan A has failed, he’s going with his backup – and that means all-out war on Team Arrow and those they hold most dear. In fact, the trailer at the

Walk of Fame Honoree Zoe Saldana Conquers the Galaxy and Beyond

Walk of Fame Honoree Zoe Saldana Conquers the Galaxy and Beyond
The first time Zoe Saldana saw the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where on May 3 she’ll be awarded her own plaque, the ground moved. Saldana, then a 20-year-old ballerina from Queens, was visiting Los Angeles with a theater troupe of kids from all five boroughs who wrote and performed skits about guns and gangs. At 1 a.m., they slipped out of their hotel to see the stars.

“We were inner-city kids and obviously you’re looking for, like, Arnold Schwarzenegger,” laughs Saldana from her now-permanent home in L.A. on an early morning when, for once, she’s not on set. They walked the streets for two hours talking about their futures.

“‘Oh my God, we’re here! Our dreams are possible!” beams Saldana, “and then, ‘What was that!?’” An earthquake.

“I’m a first-generation Latino and part of my culture is super superstitious. We rely on signs,” says Saldana.

The Simpsons Makes TV History With 636th Episode
The Simpsons is making TV history on Sunday, April 29 when the Fox animated series airs its 636th episode, beating Gunsmoke's record of scripted episodes. However, Gunsmoke and Law & Order are both still tied for the longest-running Us primetime live-action series with 20 seasons produced. In "Forgive and Regret," the 636th episode of The Simpsons, Grandpa Simpson (Dan Castellaneta) makes a deathbed confession to Homer (also Castellaneta), but after recovering, Grandpa realizes the issue is not one easily reconcilable.
