Newbie SNL castmember Pete Davidson owned the premiere, appearing in a Weekend Update sketch that showed his charm and comfortableness on camera In the days subsequent, the youngest member of the SNL cast has been hailed as the featured player to keep an eye on this season, but it all may never have happened without a little help from former SNL player and huge star Bill Hader.
Jeopardy has been on the air since the 1960s. Over the years, the show has used successful categories that have been worth repeating, as well as other categories that haven’t done quite so well. This week, the long-running game show aired an episode that included the category “What Women Want”. It's a category that needs to be banished to the nethersphere from here on out.
Syfy’s limited series, Ascension has been in the works since last spring. Today, we are finally seeing footage from the large ship, 50 years later. It’s large and well-lit and beautiful, but there’s also violence and terror present.
Working all the angles means having one’s eyes and ears in all places at once, which is virtually impossible, even when everybody’s working together. Jax has been biting off more than he could chew for years now, but his schemes are now a lot more impulsive than they used to be, and SAMCRO is a lot more transparent than it used to be. Which is how we get to another signature Sons of Anarchy massacre.
Well, this is anything but coolcoolcool. Community may be returning for its anticipated sixth season at Yahoo, but it'll be coming back without one of our favorite Greendale Human Beings. Yvette Nicole Brown, who plays Shirley, will not be returning to Community for Season 6.
This week, the Federal Communications Commission voted to end the process of blacking out NFL games that do not sell out.

In the history of Marvel Comics, characters have been brought back to life in hundreds if not thousands of different ways, from dimensional shifts to miracle cures to time travel. Agent Phil Coulson, however, is perhaps the first to be brought back thanks to the power of the popular social media site Twitter.
turning a movie premise into a TV idea has been pretty popular lately, with a Minority Report project and a Shutter Island-based series both in the works. Still, Fox’s latest purchase might come as a bit of curveball. On Tuesday, the network bought an event series that would be a remake of the classic 1988 Penny Marshall film, Big.
ABC’s Agent Carter has been adding to its cast with swiftness over the last several weeks. On Tuesday, Marvel revealed that a Captain America: The First Avenger actor will be back to reprise his role in Agent Carter. Find out who here.
It’s getting tougher and tougher to put together a half-hour sitcom premise that will work for the networks. Most of the time, writers and producers can’t simply pitch “family comedy with strong female lead” or “romantic comedy with witty dialogue and two oddball characters.” There often needs to be a gimmick, and ABC’s latest, Manhattan Love Story, offers a big one.
In order to capitalize on the reboot and/or reimagining craze that is hitting televisions this fall, ABC has turned to the classics, adapting George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion" into a sitcom. Okay, it's probably influenced more by the Lerner and Lowe musical (and Cukor film) My Fair Lady than Shaw's play. Don't worry, Selfie doesn't live up to any of them. The reimagining is not very good, but, to be fair, it's still not nearly as bad as its terrible title suggests.

Is he playing coy, or have all the fans been duped here?
