The nominations for the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced today. As you may have surmised by the title, these awards celebrate excellence in acting as presented by the Screen Actors Guild (aka SAG). This year’s nominations put Behind the Candelabra stars Michael Douglas and Matt Damon up against one another, and the same for Top of the Lake’s Holly Hunter and Elisabeth Moss.
As if to make up for the fact that this week’s episode was a rerun, Modern Family is lining up some pretty fantastic guest stars for an upcoming episode of the series’ fifth season. 30 Rock’s Jane Krakowski, The Big C’s John Benjamin Hickey and The Social Network’s Jesse Eisenberg are all set to appear in the same episode of the popular ABC comedy, though their roles are all related to different members of this modern family.
Anyone who has been paying attention to The Big Bang Theory over the past several years should know that show crushes in the ratings. The higher the rating for a series the better its ad revenue typically is, and The Big Bang Theory is topping the list of programs where money raked in from advertisements is concerned.
These are very early conversations being had, and nothing is guaranteed at this point, but they do have a few ideas about where to go with it. The one specific pitch mentioned was a series that follows Gil Thorpe, the ego-friendly number one real estate agent in Southern California, as played with gusto by the always amusing Rob Riggle.
As summer begins to wind down, USA is gearing up for the start of the fall season, which for the cable channel marks the return of Covert Affairs and White Collar, the debut of the Holiday season reality series It Takes a Choir, and the arrival of the Pritchett and Dunphy families as Modern Family will settle into syndication at USA come late September. NCIS: Los Angeles is another acquisition set to start airing on USA this fall.
ABC fell a couple of weeks behind the other major networks in getting us the their Fall 2013 premiere schedule, but with months to go, that's kind of ok. All the same, it's exciting to get to see when the network's new and returning series will debut this fall. For ABC, that includes the highly anticipated Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and new 80s-set comedy The Goldbergs, which looks like it could be a winner.
USA's known to incorporate humor in many of their drama series, but until now, the network's focus among its original programming has been on dramas. We knew that USA had its eye on some comedy projects and today the cable channel announced that they've greenlit their first-ever original half-hour comedies. Denis Leary and Bob Fisher's Sirens received a series order, as did Playing House from Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair.
ABC has posted their 2013-2014 line-up of new and returning series, which gives us a look at the plan for the network's schedule for the fall. The network has moved The Neighbors over to Friday nights, to join Last Man Standing, and fill the gap left by Malibu Country. Meanwhile, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air on Tuesday nights, ahead of new comedies The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife, which are sandwiched between another new drama, Lucky 7.
ABC just dropped the ax on a number of series, but there's good news for others, including some of their soapier offerings. Scandal, Grey's Anatomy and Nashville have all been renewed for new seasons, as well as Castle. And on the comedy front, Modern Family, The Middle, Suburgatory and Last Man Standing will return as well.
It's been weeks since we've seen a new episode of Modern Family. The ABC comedy will return for one of the few remaining episodes of Season 4 this Wednesday night, and based on the photos we have to show you, it looks like Lily is about to be paid a visit by a very family looking tooth fairy.
Tonight's episode of Modern Family will be a mini-Married… With Children reunion, as former MWC star David Faustino is set to guest star. From the preview photo we have to show you, it looks like his character will be interacting with Phil as part of the Dunphy arc in the episode, which involves Claire visiting her college for a reunion and a very awkward situation arising.
Modern Family already has a number of guest stars set to arrive or return to the series at some point during the remainder of its fourth season. Among the newcomers are Elizabeth Pena and Billy Dee Williams, and among the returners, we'll be seeing Elizabeth Banks and Nathan Lane on the show. Joining the latter group of actors who have appeared before and are making a return is Bridesmaids' Wendi McLendon-Covey.
Based on the teasers we've seen so far, Modern Family has some big things coming up, including a few great guest appearances, not to mention the arrival of a baby! The latest promo gives us a glimpse of the mentioned guest stars and of Gloria in a lot of pain. But before that, it looks like Cam and Mitch are having a hard time staying awake on New Year's Eve! Fortunately, Lily's on hand to make sure they do.
TV offered plenty of amazing and memorable moments in 2012. Whether they were sad, funny, violent or just plain shocking, we had no trouble piling up a list of some of our favorite moments in television this year. And because we came up with so many, we've broken them down by category, staring with the demises of numerous notable characters and then moving into the other big TV moments from 2012.
We have a couple weeks to wait before Modern Family returns with new episodes. While the winter hiatus ensues, ABC has offered up a few promotional videos to remind us that not only is Modern Family on the way, but so is Gloria's baby! We also have a look at the next new episode, which features a special guest star that Star Wars fans will appreciate.
