Emmy spotlight: Much that is marvelous about ‘Mrs. Maisel’ is inherited from her papa, Tony Shalhoub

On the second season of Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” the title character’s father, Abe Weissman, undergoes a transformation both personally and professionally, much like his stand-up comic daughter as she seeks what was once a secret career in showbiz.

As played by Tony Shalhoub, there is more than a bit of the obsessive-compulsive behavior left over from his super-smart detective character on ABC’s “Monk” as Abe similarly clings to a series of rituals as if they were a life preserver in a metaphysical sea of constant change. Given that the actor earned an Emmy nomination as a lead in a comedy series for each of the show’s eight seasons – winning three times – “Monk” fans can’t help but expect similar behavior from Shalhoub, even on a different series. Yes, it’s a jungle out there now that his only daughter is split from her husband.

Jeff Beal (‘House of Cards’ composer) on how Kevin Spacey’s exit affected the season and Claire’s ‘operatic’ journey [Exclusive Video Interview]
Working on the final season of any series can be difficult, but that was especially true with “House of Cards” given the behind-the-scenes drama that led to the firing of star Kevin Spacey. “One of the real challenges we had in this season was telling our story without our former lead actor on screen at all,” reveals composer Jeff Beal, who was with the show from beginning to end. Watch our exclusive video interview with Beal above.

The sixth and final installment of Netflix‘s landmark political drama shifted the emphasis from Frank Underwood (Spacey), a conniving Congressman turned President, to his wife Claire (Robin Wright), who, as his Vice President, assumes the office following his untimely exit.

With his music, Beal tried to “keep the ghost of Frank Underwood alive,” and the show’s writers tried to do the same. “All the

Ted Danson is in a ‘Good Place’ to extend his own Emmy record that he just set last year

Ted Danson is in a ‘Good Place’ to extend his own Emmy record that he just set last year
Ted Danson made Emmy history last year when he set a record for the most Best Comedy Actor nominations with his 12th bid in the category, for “The Good Place.” And now he can put even more distance between himself and the also-rans with his lucky 13th nomination.

Danson is in third place in our Best Comedy Actor odds, trailing defending champ Bill Hader (“Barry”) and Golden Globe champ Michael Douglas (“The Kominsky Method”). He’s ahead of Don Cheadle (“Black Monday”), Jim Carrey (“Kidding”) and Anthony Anderson (“Black-ish”). Danson’s nomination last year was a surprise, as he was in eighth place in our odds after the Emmys completely snubbed “The Good Place” the year prior, but his and Maya Rudolph‘s guest bid helped the beloved afterlife comedy break through in a major way. (“The Good Place” is currently in fifth place in our Best Comedy Series predictions.

Her performance on the show also won her two SAG Awards in 2009 and 2010 respectively. At only 19 years old, Kiernan is taking Hollywood by storm!

Here are all the ways Sandra Oh made SAG Awards history with her drama actress win

Here are all the ways Sandra Oh made SAG Awards history with her drama actress win
Sandra Oh just keeps making history. After becoming the first Best Drama Actress Emmy nominee of Asian descent and the first Asian actress to win two Golden Globes, she’s now just the second person to win two drama actress Screen Actors Guild Awards for two different shows.

Oh took home drama actress for “Killing Eve” at Sunday’s ceremony, 13 years after triumphing for “Grey’s Anatomy.” She joins Julianna Margulies as the only people who’ve won the category for for two shows; Margulies nabbed two statuettes each for “ER” (1998-99) and “The Good Wife” (2010-11) for a record four wins in the category.

Tony Shalhoub accomplished the same feat in the comedy actor category Sunday night, winning for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” to go with his two victories for “Monk.” But Oh has a leg up on Shalhoub. His three wins come from eight nominations.

Round 3! With a win each, Michael Douglas and Bill Hader’s SAG Awards comedy actor showdown will go to…

Round 3! With a win each, Michael Douglas and Bill Hader’s SAG Awards comedy actor showdown will go to…
Michael Douglas and Bill Hader are 1-1 in their Best Comedy Actor contests so far. Douglas beat Hader at the Golden Globes for “The Kominsky Method,” but the “Barry” creator and star got him a week later at the Critics’ Choice Awards. So who will take their third face-off at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards? Our pundits say Douglas.

Douglas has 7/2 odds to take home his third career SAG Award, which would give him a perfect 3-for-3 record; he previously won as part of the “Traffic” (2000) ensemble and for his turn as Liberace in the HBO miniseries “Behind the Candelabra” (2014). Hader, who’s on his first individual nomination, is in second with 19/5 odds.

Both, coincidentally, star on shows centered around acting classes. Douglas has the advantage of being a legendary star, aka one of the SAG Awards’ favorite winner profiles. These voters love to respect their elders or a good/lazy name-check,

Will SAG Awards vote-splitting lead to victories for Tony Shalhoub (‘Mrs. Maisel’) and Alison Brie (‘Glow’)?

Will SAG Awards vote-splitting lead to victories for Tony Shalhoub (‘Mrs. Maisel’) and Alison Brie (‘Glow’)?
Screen Actors Guild Awards voters will face an interesting situation in the TV comedy categories this year. Both the male and female races have two sets of nominees from the same show, and one outlier. For the males, Bill Hader and Henry Winkler are both nominated for “Barry” while Alan Arkin and Michael Douglas are in for “The Kominsky Method.” Tony Shalhoub for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is the sole representative for his show, at least on the male side. For the females, Rachel Brosnahan and Alex Borstein are nominated for “Maisel,” and Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin earned their third consecutive nominations for “Grace and Frankie.” The lone wolf here is Alison Brie for “Glow.” There is a scenario where votes could split between all these double nominated shows, allowing Shalhoub and Brie to sneak right through the middle and win.

Tony Shalhoub would make history at the SAG Awards with another TV comedy actor win

Tony Shalhoub would make history at the SAG Awards with another TV comedy actor win
Tony Shalhoub‘s potential third Screen Actors Guild Award win for TV comedy actor would mark a first. No, he wouldn’t be the first to win three — far from it — but he’d be the first person to win that award for two different shows.

Shalhoub, who was shortlisted for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” on Wednesday, already has two statuettes for “Monk” (2004-05) out of seven nominations for that show. He is one of six people who’ve won the category multiple times, all for the same respective show. Shalhoub is tied with Michael J. Fox and John Lithgow with two victories. Sean Hayes and William H. Macy — the two-time reigning champ who was snubbed — have three wins each. And, of course, Alec Baldwin trumps them all with seven consecutive wins.

In our early combined odds, Shalhoub is in fourth place behind Michael Douglas (“The Kominsky Method”), Bill Hader

Will Steve Carell cash in his major Emmy Iou with ‘Saturday Night Live’ guest star nomination?
Very few people have a major Emmy Awards Iou more than Steve Carell. Will he cash in with his guest hosting gig for “Saturday Night Live” this weekend and finally take home the trophy?

From 2006 to 2011, Carell received six acting nominations and four for producing of the fondly remembered comedy series “The Office.” He never found a way to win any of those attempts, losing on the acting side to Tony Shalhoub (“Monk”), Ricky Gervais (“Extras”), Alec Baldwin twice (“30 Rock”) and Jim Parsons twice (“The Big Bang Theory”). His program losses were to “30 Rock” twice and “Modern Family” twice.

‘The Good Cop’ Canceled by Netflix After One Season

  • The Wrap
Netflix has canceled the Josh Groban-Tony Danza comedy “The Good Cop,” the streamer said Tuesday.

The odd-couple comedy about a father-son pair of police detectives, from “Monk” creator Andy Breckman, debuted with a 10-episode season last month. Monica Barbaro, Isiah Whitlock, Jr. and Bill Kottkamp also starred.

“‘The Good Cop’ will not return for a second season,” Netflix said in a statement. “We’re grateful to creator Andy Breckman and his fellow producers, writers, the incredible crew and especially stars Tony Danza and Josh Groban for bringing this classic odd couple father-son story to Netflix.”

‘Good Cop’ Canceled by Netflix After One Season
Netflix has pulled the plug on “The Good Cop” after just one season, Variety has confirmed.

“‘The Good Cop’ will not return for a second season,” Netflix said in a statement. “We’re grateful to creator Andy Breckman and his fellow producers, writers, the incredible crew and especially stars Tony Danza and Josh Groban for bringing this classic odd couple father-son story to Netflix.”

Danza starred as Big Tony, a lovable yet not exactly honorable, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules. He lives with his son, TJ (Groban), a brilliant, straight-laced NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules while solving Brooklyn’s toughest cases. The show also starred Monica Barbaro, Isiah Whitlock, Jr and Bill Kottkamp.

Breckman, the creator of “Monk,” served as showrunner and executive producer. Randy Zisk and Howard Klein also executive produced with Danza producing. The series is inspired by a

  • Variety
TBS has given a series greenlight to the comedy game show “Misery Index,” fronted by the troupe behind TruTV’s “Impractical Jokers.”

The series features teams of contestants challenged to rank “hilarious and miserable real-life events” on a scale of 1 to 100. The teams will consist of one contestant and two members of the Tenderloins troupe: Brian “Q” Quinn, James “Murr” Murray, Joe Gatto and Sal Vulcano.

‘The Good Cop’ Review: Josh Groban Isn’t a Bad Cop or a Bad Actor, But He’s a Huge Problem in This Bland Netflix Comedy

‘The Good Cop’ Review: Josh Groban Isn’t a Bad Cop or a Bad Actor, But He’s a Huge Problem in This Bland Netflix Comedy
Tony Danza and Josh Groban’s good cop/bad cop routine is busted, but not for the reasons you might think. For one, Danza is great as the corrupt detective kicked off the force in very public fashion. His Tony Sr. is a joke-teller, barroom crooner, and all-around man of the people; the kind of lovable wiseguy you would immediately forgive for any well-intentioned indiscretions… unless, that is, he’s your father. Tony Jr., or Tj (Groban), is the exact opposite of his dear ol’ dad — not that he’s unlovable; he just follows every rule, from specific points within the police code (he often cites others for “infractions”) to the implied but oft-violated social agreements like refusing to pick up an unclaimed quarter.

One guy is a beloved bad cop, the other is an ostracized good one. The odd couple setup is obvious, simple, and certainly solid enough to carry a crime-of-the-week procedural — or,

‘The Good Cop’: Tony Danza Plays Yet Another Character Named ‘Tony’ — Here’s Why It Happened This Time

‘The Good Cop’: Tony Danza Plays Yet Another Character Named ‘Tony’ — Here’s Why It Happened This Time
Believe it or not, the reason Tony Danza’s character in the new Netflix detective dramedy “The Good Cop” is named Tony isn’t because of him. As the veteran star told IndieWire, the scripts for the series by “Monk” creator Andy Breckman had already referred to the character as Tony Senior (or “Big Tony”) even before he signed on — because Danza wasn’t part of the original pitch.

“[Breckman] pitched the show with somebody else in the lead… I think the other actor was named Tony,” Danza said. “If you put this together, it’s pretty easy to figure out who it is… Talk about a guy that’s hitting on all cylinders. He won the Tony. He won an Emmy. He’s part of an Emmy award-winning show Monday night.”

It’s not hard to guess that Danza is referring here to Tony Shalhoub, who won three Emmys for

Henry Winkler Wins His First Emmy 42 Years After Being Nominated for First Time
After over four decades of Emmy-nominated performances, Henry Winkler finally has an excuse to let the cat out.

The actor won his first Emmy on Monday night at the 70th Emmys for playing Gene Cousineau on the HBO show “Barry.” This comes after being nominated five times previously, first in 1976 for his iconic role as The Fonz on “Happy Days.”

In the intervening years, Winkler was also up for an award on the drama side after his work on “The Practice.” But his trip to the ceremony this year was his first as an Emmy nominee since 2000.

He faced impressive competition from this year’s category, including some past Emmys favorites. Tony Shalhoub, a perennial winner for “Monk,” was eligible for the first time for his work on the Amazon show “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” First time Supporting Actor nominees Brian Tyree Henry (“Atlanta”) and Kenan Thompson (“Saturday Night Live
