Chris Klein spent his summer playing Jenna’s obnoxious boyfriend on FX’s Wilfred, but now that fall is approaching, he’s making the trip to network TV. His newest gig will take him to Fox, where he will appear in a Season 3 episode of the network’s half-hour comedy, Raising Hope. The role will land Klein smack dab in the middle of the Chance family's shenanigans (and probably even in the middle of their sagging couch)
Fox 2012-2013 Primetime Schedule Moves Glee To Thursdays, Introduces The Mindy Project, Mob Doctor And Others
Fox's 2012-2013 primetime schedule is up, and in addition to returning series The X Factor, Touch and New Girl, among others, the line-up also includes a handful of new series. This includes Mindy Kaling's comedy, which has found a fitting spot behind New Girl on Tuesday nights, and The Mob Doctor, which may fill the medical drama void left by House
Garcia has eked out a deal to work with CBS TV Studios for the next four years. It’s probably a big win for CBS TV Studios to nab somebody with such a weird voice and creative outlook, but does the studio change mean anything for the producer's current show over at Fox?
That’s right, folks, Nancy Grace is set to appear on tonight’s episode of Greg Garcia’s dysfunctional comedy. In this week’s episode, Grace won’t throw on a crazy disguise like earlier guest star Katy Perry; instead, she is set to play herself. Since Garcia enjoys making connections between former show My Name is Earl and Raising Hope, Grace will host a show within the show called Inside Probe.
Fox has announced more renewals for next season, and it looks like Tuesday nights won’t be changing. Gleeks will be happy to hear that season four of Glee is assured (not that there was much doubt) while Raising Hope’s strong ratings have earned it a third season. Finally, newbie New Girl has been given a second season, again, not to anyone’s surprise I am sure.
Spring is here! Or it will be tomorrow, technically. And with it comes the end of the season for many of our favorite shows. Fox has laid out its schedule for its 2011-2012 season finales. Which shows will begin shutting down for the season as soon as next month? Find out ahead!
Early next month, Fox’s Raising Hope will move to 8:00 p.m., shifting up an hour in the absence of Glee and making room for the return of I Hate My Teenage Daughter (8:30 p.m.) and Breaking In (9:30 p.m.). With Raising Hope’s new time-slot, and Fox’s two-hour comedy block comes an guest appearance by singer Katy Perry.
It looks like Fox is shaping up to make Tuesday night all about the comedy. It kind of already is, if we were to count Glee as a comedy, which it sometimes is. But Glee’s “winter finale” is approaching, which will free up an hour on Tuesday nights and give Fox two half-hour spots, one of which will go to the return of Breaking In, and the other I Hate My Teenage Daughter.
As the year draws to a close, we’re rounding off the last of our “Best of 2011” lists. In looking over our list of the best female TV characters from this year, it’s evident that TV delivered some excellent women to the screen. Some were as fierce as warriors, while others made us laugh. One birthed a baby while another birthed dragons. One attempted to protect the country from terrorism, while another sipped champagne and glared a lot. These are our picks for the best female characters on TV in 2011.
It’s not that I think Fox is in danger of dropping below NBC on ratings scale, but next week X Factor is back on the Tuesday night schedule. If Fox wants to keep audiences coming back for regular programming, the network needs to quit cramming X Factor, baseball, and whatever the hell else it can find into primetime slots.
Every now and then it's important to take a break from the intense competition of the TV news reporting world and take a step back to just enjoy a funny, television related video. It doesn't hurt that said funny video, by the geniuses over at Funny or Die, contains a few of TV's brightest young talents in a segment called 'Child Star Psychologist' starring Mad Men's Draper daughter Kiernan Shipka.
Creator Greg Garcia is fond of talking about working class people who get themselves into strange situations. His last program, My Name Is Earl, garnered laughs as a low-class character spent each episode making amends for a different wrong he had incurred in the past. Raising Hope follows suit, giving audiences a view into a world where a dysfunctional family raises a killer’s baby, with some help from the outside community.
Your guide to Netflix streaming is back, bringing you a handful of new or notable selections from Netflix's Instant Watch catalogue. This time we've got Conan O'Brien, MythBusters, animated Trek, and early J.J. Abrams. Here's what's FlixWorthy this week, kids.
Tomorrow night, TV’s slightly less modern family returns to television. I’m of course referring to the rotary-dial-phone-using Chance family on Fox’s returning comedy series Raising Hope. Beginning its second season, Hope’s premiere once again makes me wonder how the series wasn’t on the list of Comedy nominees during last night’s Emmy Awards.
Fox released their Fall 2011 Primetime TV schedule, which includes the Emmy Awards, the return of Glee, Raising Hope, and Fringe, and the series premieres of Terra Nova, X Factor, and New Girl. Changes to the schedule for returning shows appear to be minimal.
