‘Dietland’ Canceled After One Season at AMC
Dietland” has been canceled at AMC after one season.

The series starring Joy Nash and Julianna Margulies was a hit with many critics but drew a small audience that declined over the show’s 10-episode run, which ended in August. Marti Noxon shepherded the adaptation of Sarai Walker’s 2015 novel as executive producer and showrunner for Skydance Television.

AMC had high hopes for the show that revolved around themes of beauty and female empowerment. The cabler also carried a companion after-show, “Unapologetic,” hosted by Aisha Tyler.

“‘Dietland’ is bold, original and brave. We are beyond proud of our partnership with Marti Noxon, Joy Nash, Juliana Margulies, Skydance and everyone else involved in bringing Sarai Walker’s story to the screen,” AMC said in a statement. “Similarly, Aisha Tyler and our friends at Embassy Row delivered a unique companion show that led with fresh voices and important topics. ‘Dietland’ garnered critical

‘Game of Thrones’ Emmy upset extends its all-time record to 47 wins

‘Game of Thrones’ Emmy upset extends its all-time record to 47 wins
At the Primetime Emmys telecast on September 17 we weren’t expecting “Game of Thrones” to win any of its five categories, but it surprised us twice, and they were pretty big surprises: it claimed Best Drama Series for the third time and also Best Drama Supporting Actor for Peter Dinklage for the third time. That brings the show’s total awards for the year to 9 and its all-time total to 47, which is by far the most awards for a primetime drama or comedy in a single year.

It’s hard to imagine a behemoth like “Game of Thrones” being considered an underdog anywhere, especially at the Emmys where it earned the most nominations of any program this year (22), but most of our users thought last year’s winner, “The Handmaid’s Tale,” would carry its momentum for another year. However, “Handmaid’s” ended up shut out entirely at the telecast,

'Better Call Saul' Editor on Doing "Something Stupid" and Passing Time

'Better Call Saul' Editor on Doing
[This interview contains spoilers for the Monday, Sept. 17 episode of Better Call Saul.]

Monday's Better Call Saul seemed like a good opportunity to pause the regular rotation of writer/director/actor postepisode interviews to talk to editor Skip MacDonald, who won an Emmy for the Breaking Bad series finale, about the new prequel/sequel show's tricky treatment of the passage of time.

Few programs on TV enjoy a good montage as much as Better Call Saul, and Monday's installment, fittingly titled "Something Stupid," begins with a classic. Over the course of a specially commissioned cover of the title ...

Peter Dinklage Thanks ‘Game Of Thrones’ Producers For “Changing My Life” — Emmys

Peter Dinklage Thanks ‘Game Of Thrones’ Producers For “Changing My Life” — Emmys
Peter Dinklage, nominated a record-tying seventh time for his role as Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones, captured his third Emmy in the category. That mark ties him with Aaron Paul, who also won three times for Breaking Bad.

The goateed, shaggy-haired Dinklage gave a sardonic but heartfelt speech Monday at the Microsoft Theater, acknowledging his wife and show producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss.

“Thank you, Dave and Dan for changing my life. I cannot walk down the street anymore,” he said. “But you are honestly the most talented, amazing people I know, besides my wife, Erica, who I think I forgot to thank a couple of years ago. So thank you, Erica, for putting up with me. I’m very temperamental and I love you very much.”

In the category, Dinklage edged out Thrones castmate Nikolaj Coster-Waldau; David Harbour of Stranger Things

Watch Michael Che Hand Out ‘Reparations Emmys’ to Overlooked Black Actors
Michael Che tried to right several decades-worth of Hollywood wrongs by handing out “Reparations Emmys” to overlooked black actors and actresses during the 2018 Emmy Awards.

The pre-taped bit opened with Che presenting an actual Emmy trophy to The JeffersonsMarla Gibbs. “Your role as Florence the maid is the reason I got fired form every service job I had,” Che said, prompting Gibbs to deadpan, “Well thank you – I think.”

Other recipients included Jimmie Walker of Good Times, Kadeem Hardison of A Different World, Jaleel White of Family Matters and

‘Better Call Saul’ Star Rhea Seehorn: ‘It Is A Crazy Ride From Here To The End’

‘Better Call Saul’ Star Rhea Seehorn: ‘It Is A Crazy Ride From Here To The End’
Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched episode 407 of “Better Call Saul,” titled “Something Stupid.”

Can this relationship be saved?

Given Kim’s (Rhea Seehorn) absence in the future that we know in “Breaking Bad,” it seems only a matter of time before she splits up with Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk). And that fate seems even clear in this week’s episode of “Better Call Saul”, which saw the two characters — each mired separately in their own guilt and grieving process —inch further away from each other.

From the opening montage — another instant classic in the “Better Call Saul” universe — through that awkward office party to the case with Huell, the hour laid bare the tensions, spoken and unspoken, in their relationship.

Here, Seehorn breaks down Jimmy and Kim’s relationship, Kim’s ultimate fate, and what’s ahead for the rest of the season.

So the first and most important question,

Peter Dinklage Just Tied Aaron Paul's Emmys Record

'Better Call Saul' Reveals a Key Piece of the 'Breaking Bad'-verse (Exclusive Video)
[This story contains spoilers for the Monday, Sept. 17 episode of Better Call Saul.]

The German construction crew Mike (Jonathan Banks) hired in the previous week's Better Call Saul has been busy.

As the show continues to show the slow transformation of the basically decent Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) into the oily Saul Goodman viewers knew in Breaking Bad, it's also telling the parallel story of how the world Saul inhabits came to be. A sizable piece of that world clicked into place in Monday's episode, "Something Stupid."

Midway through the episode, Mike and the construction crew ...

Gold Derby Editor Tom O’Neil’s 100% perfect, infallible, brilliant Emmy predictions

Gold Derby Editor Tom O’Neil’s 100% perfect, infallible, brilliant Emmy predictions
Pardon my braggadocio, but, hey, if you aim to give the Best Performance by an Emmy Pundit, you have to get all huffy or it’s no fun, right? You can see all of my Emmy predictions here. Explanations below. If you dare to disagree, post your comments below.

Best Comedy Series

A neck-and-neck horse race between “Atlanta” and “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” Out of our 27 Experts, 14 pick “Atlanta” and 13 say “Maisel.” Both have drawbacks. “Atlanta” isn’t the kind of knee-slapping gigglefest that usually wins here, while “Maisel” is a one-hour nominee in a category usually dominated by half-hour fare. Both programs scored three victories at the Creative Arts awards last weekend. I’m going with “Atlanta” because voters tend to hold back the comedy-series crown a bit. “Veep” didn’t win until its fourth turn at bat. Now “Atlanta,” in its second year, competes against newbie “Maisel,” so it probably has the edge.

How many Emmys will the Lannister clan win for ‘Game of Thrones’?

How many Emmys will the Lannister clan win for ‘Game of Thrones’?
Game of Thrones” has once again taken the Emmys by storm, amassing 22 nominations, making it the most nominated show this year. Three of those nominations come in the acting categories, with Emmy darling Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) nabbing his seventh bid for Best Drama Supporting Actor. His co-star and on-screen brother Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, aka Jaime Lannister, joins him in this category – grabbing his first ever Emmy nomination.

Lena Headey completes the trio of nominated Lannister siblings with her fourth nomination for Best Drama Supporting Actress coming after another masterclass in acting as Cersei Lannister. As great as it would be for all three actors to win, that simply can’t happen – unless, somehow, Dinklage and Coster-Waldau tie for the win in their category. It’s really a chance of getting two awards, one award or zero awards, then.

But what does Emmy history tell us about the trio’s chances? Well,

Patrick Fabian Reveals Where He Thinks Howard Is In Breaking Bad

It’s impossible to talk about Breaking Bad when discussing Better Call Saul, even if the actor the press is speaking to wasn’t in the original show. Variety recently asked Patrick Fabian where he thinks Howard is in the Breaking Bad timeline, and the actor’s response offered a couple different suggestions:

My gut tells me he’s not dead. People love to direct message me and say how do you think he’s going to die. This is just pure imagination, but I imagine that Howard gets involved somehow and get burned one more time — he either removes himself from the situation or just sort of fades away. I don’t see a violent end for Howard. But I don’t know. Maybe Gus Fring needs a lawyer! I will say this. I keep insisting to Giancarlo that I have the best suits in the show and he keeps insisting that he does.

‘BoJack Horseman’ Has Become So Great It’s Beyond Reproach — So Season 5 Critiques Itself

‘BoJack Horseman’ Has Become So Great It’s Beyond Reproach — So Season 5 Critiques Itself
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “BoJack Horseman” Season 5, including the ending.]

BoJack Horseman is holding himself accountable, and so is “BoJack Horseman.” By the end of another remarkable season, the eponymous horse on two feet walks himself into a rehabilitation facility with the help of his friend, Diane (voiced by Alison Brie). BoJack (Will Arnett) spends Season 5 trying to get better, but his best efforts are undermined by unavoidable circumstances (his mom dies) and past mistakes (nearly sleeping with a teenage girl). Near the end of the new episodes, he snaps and chokes his female co-star, Gina (Stephanie Beatriz). So he’s lucky to have a friend remaining who can usher him toward getting help.

In a way, Raphael Bob-Waksberg’s series didn’t have such a friend. Of course, it never committed any narrative sin as heinous as what BoJack has done, but it only received encouragement despite traversing rocky terrain. The Netflix original

Emmy Predictions: With ‘Veep’ Gone and ‘Game of Thrones’ Back, Expect a Real Dogfight

Emmy Predictions: With ‘Veep’ Gone and ‘Game of Thrones’ Back, Expect a Real Dogfight
Two huge moves could lead to one of the most intriguing Primetime Emmys ceremonies in recent memory on Monday, as two “reigning champions” go head-to-head for the top drama Emmy and a batch of first- and second-year shows vie to take an open spot in comedy.

In the Emmys drama categories, “Game of Thrones” is back after a one-year absence, creating a potential power struggle with “The Handmaid’s Tale” for the top spot. In the comedy categories, three-time winner “Veep” has dropped out for a year, vacating the title and clearing the way for a pitched battle between newer shows anxious to replace it at the top.

As always, the Emmys’ voting rules — everybody votes for the program awards, but only specific peer groups cast ballots in other categories — make sweeps unlikely and upsets a regular occurrence. The Emmys are the hardest of the major awards to accurately predict,

Westworld Season 3 Casts Aaron Paul For Mystery Role

While HBO viewers are still reeling from the events of Westworld 2.0, the show’s third chapter is already beginning to fall into place.

Case in point: Deadline is reporting today that Aaron Paul, star of Breaking Bad and BoJack Horseman, has climbed aboard Westworld season 3. Details of his role are a total mystery at this point (surprise!), though it’s being reported that he’s been cast as a series regular, meaning he’ll be joining a roster comprised of Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Ed Harris, Jimmi Simpson and Jeffrey Wright.

If nothing else, his casting is a testimony to the sheer quality of Westworld as a drama series, which typically leaves viewers rooted to their seats with its mind-melting twists and Western-tinged action. The show’s second season dramatically expanded the scope, too, introducing viewers to the Shogun World and its Japanese-themed simulation.

Aaron Paul Joins HBO's Westworld Season 3

Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul has just landed another big TV series gig! According to Deadline, he has joined the third season of HBO’s sci-fi drama series Westworld. There’s no information on who exactly Paul will be playing, but I can’t wait to find out!

I’ve enjoyed the hell out of Westworld so far, even through all it’s weird confusion, and I’m excited to see where this story takes these fascinating characters next season.

Paul recently ended his run on Hulu’s The Path and is currently a series regular on Apple’s upcoming drama anthology series Are You Sleeping?

Westworld was created for television by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, and it’s based on Michael Crichton’s novel and 1973 movie. The story tells a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin.
