There’s no denying that Gotham is one of the most popular series currently on the air, which technically makes Ben McKenzie’s upper lip one of the more controversial body parts on TV. Will he ever grow the iconic Jim Gordon mustache?
Empire, the bold, brutal and bitchy melodrama following the rise of a hip hop empire and the problems that could bring the business to its knees, is doing quite well over at Fox.
Fox has been having a pretty lackluster TV season thus far. While Gotham has made a positive dent in the network’s less-than-impressive ratings, the network hasn’t had a ton of luck with freshman dramas or comedies. And now Red Band Society is getting cancelled.
The question remains as to whether or not the proposed sequel for The Simpsons Movie will ever exist, or how enjoyable it would be, but showrunner Al Jean revealed that a recent episode was actually in the running to become the plot for a follow-up film.
While last week’s episode “The Man Who Came To Be Dinner” might have made you think that Al Jean and the rest of The Simpsons’ team had left the series on Self-Perpetuating Autopilot, tonight’s episode proved that people are still there and paying attention with this winning tribute.
The efficacy of Family Guy’s humor from season to season is worth its own argument-inciting ranking, but for now, we’re focused just on the show’s 10 funniest characters. And as you can imagine, Meg isn't on the list.
We’ve literally been writing about the decline in American Idol’s ratings for years, but it should be noted that American Idol probably isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Will Forte will hopefully conquer the small screen again for his first major project post-SNL, Fox’s The Last Man on Earth. We can’t wait for this one, and this gung ho trailer championing Forte’s skills just makes us want to dive in (that booze pool) even more.
A lot of things can be said about Fox’s approach, or lack thereof, to letting their shows thrive. Luckily, the network has no problem showing Bob’s Burgers its due reverence, and we get to see a lot more of the Belcher family in the future.
Despite the completely straightforward nature of Gotham, fans have come up with a wild theory that Cobblepot might actually be the Joker, not the Penguin. This week Taylor has finally spoken out to tell us what he thinks about this theory.
Fox’s newest drama Empire already has a lot of moving parts, but it’s not only the narratives that are complicated, as some of the show’s characters have points-of-view that can be highly controversial. And the most disturbing scene in the show's premiere wasn't just a work of fiction.
Empire has a lot of interesting things happening at once, and essentially functions as a primetime soap opera where you can dance your way through the ham-fisted parts. Plus, it reunites Hustle & Flow stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson. This one is staying on my playlist.
Long before Judd Apatow was the comedic genius we know him as today, he was a young comedian trying to break into the TV writing industry by writing spec scripts for shows like The Simpsons.
If things had gone differently at Fox, we might have seen a much different Gotham airing right now. Get the details behind the Batman-oriented TV series that never made it past the pitching process after the jump. Hint: we would be seeing different villains on Fox right now.
For eight seasons, Fox’s 24 enticed viewers with a format set over the course of an hour, following Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer as he protected America from terrorism. New life was breathed into the series with 24: Live Another Day and this week Sutherland spoke out to explain whether or not there will be more 24.
