Shockingly, Baranski hasn’t won an Emmy Award in over two decades since prevailing for “Cybill” in 1995 as Best Comedy Supporting Actress. This year she contends for the second time as Best Drama Actress for CBS All Access’s “The Good Fight,” a spinoff of “The Good Wife” that brings her poised and confident lawyer character Diane Lockhart front and center.

‘Moonlighting’ Creator Glenn Gordon Caron Has Big Ideas For A Reboot, But Isn’t Sure That He Should — Turn It On Podcast
Glenn Gordon Caron is almost midway through his first season as showrunner of “Bull,” CBS’ Michael Weatherly drama about a high-powered trial consultant loosely based on the real-life work of Dr. Phil McGraw. But, of course, it’s hard not to first ask him about “Moonlighting,” the legendary romantic comedy starring Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd, which broke every television rule back in the 1980s.

And indeed, in this era of remakes and reboots, Caron told IndieWire that he’s often approached about putting “Moonlighting” back on television. He’s torn on whether to do it — but has some great ideas should it go.

“Maybe you do it with Channing Tatum and Emma Stone? Or for a moment I had this idea of doing it [again] with Bruce and Cybill. I can’t tell you all the ideas I’ve had. But at the same time there’s a voice in my head that goes,

Interview: Director Icon Peter Bogdanovich Honored at 52nd Chicago International Film Festival

Chicago – If Peter Bogdanovich had only been a film writer and critic, he still would have made a major contribution to cinema culture. But he also chose to direct, and besides producing arguably one of the best American films ever made (“The Last Picture Show”), he continues to work and fulfill his creative vision.

Bogdanovich was honored at the 52nd Chicago International Film Festival with a Gold Hugo Career Lifetime Achievement designation, which was augmented with a magnificent documentary about a period in his career called “One Day Since Yesterday: Peter Bogdanovich and the Lost American Film.” The film tells the story of “They All Laughed” (1981), a post modern screwball comedy starring Audrey Hepburn, John Ritter and Dorothy Stratten. Bogdanovich was in a relationship with Stratten during the production of the film, and she was murdered by her ex-husband while the film was being edited. The tragedy, the prescience of

How Chuck Lorre Went From ‘Noble Failure’ to ‘Big Bang’ Success

How Chuck Lorre Went From ‘Noble Failure’ to ‘Big Bang’ Success
The first TV show that Chuck Lorre ever ran lasted five weeks. A sitcom about a Staten Island family, “Frannie’s Turn” premiered in what Lorre calls “the coveted Saturday 8 o’clock timeslot” on CBS.

Lorre had developed the show at the behest of his bosses on “Roseanne,” where he was a staff writer. He hadn’t liked the idea for the show, but he did like the faith that Marcy Carsey and Tom Werner had placed in him to develop and run it. When “Frannie’s Turn” was canceled, Lorre, believing he’d put that faith to waste, prepared for the worst.

“To my amazement Tom Werner said to me, ‘Well that was a noble failure. Let’s try something else,’” Lorre says. “And I was shocked, because I thought my career was over.”

His career was far from over. After that “noble failure,” Lorre, recipient of Variety’s Creative Leadership Award, went

Chuck Lorre on Why ‘Mom’ Is His Hardest But Most Rewarding Job

Chuck Lorre on Why ‘Mom’ Is His Hardest But Most Rewarding Job
Chuck Lorre has been writing and producing comedy for TV for over 25 years, from his days on “Roseanne,” “Grace Under Fire” and “Cybill” through today, when he helms “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mom” as part of his overall deal with Warner Bros. TV. Here he talks about why he relies on the multicam format, what he’s learned from producing legend Norman Lear, and why he calls “Mom” the hardest but most rewarding job he’s ever had.

You’ve had an impressive string of successes. What’s your secret?

I really believe that the foundation of a good show is characters, and the jokes come second. If you don’t care about the people, it doesn’t really matter what’s on the page. Situation comedy is a misnomer. I think for a long time, the situation has just been life. It doesn’t start with a contrived situation or a joke.

10 Worst TV Shows To Launch This Decade

CBS

This decade has seen some belters grace our screens: from shows that have already developed into long and worthy slogs (Game Of Thrones), blinding one season wonders (The Pacific), and Netflix stealing the crown (House Of Cards, Daredevil), suffice to say the golden age is still gleaming.

But the studios don’t always get it right, and for every cheer over Jon Snow taking out a foe, or face in hand reaction to an unforgettable finale – Homeland Season One, still slaying us to this day – there will be expletives hurled at a majorly missed opportunity (Napoleon Dynamite), eyes rolled at some faux horror (Hemlock Grove) and sleep induced by tired shows still doing the rounds (CSI: Cyber, so bad). This is the nature of the beast: for every great show, there will more than likely be a handful of bad ones produced alongside it. It’s up to us
