If you're worried that adding Constantine to your schedule will cause some serious superhero fatigue, rest easy. The new NBC series isn't like the other comic-book adaptations on TV. It's got more in common with Angel than it does with the costumed crime-fighting of The Flash or the origin story of Gotham. Of course, being different doesn't mean much if the quality isn't there and Constantine's pilot is 'super' inconsistent.
Adapting all-age superhero comic books for television is one thing, but adapting a distinctly adult comic for mass audiences is something else entirely. NBC’s Constantine is one such challenge, and the character’s fans have been anxious to know just how close Matt Ryan’s TV persona will get to the source material.
If you’ve been wondering what to call what DC Comics is doing with its slew of TV and movie characters, we have an answer for you. DC President Geoff Johns spoke out on Thursday to explain how The Flash and Arrow can exist on the small screen and still exist in a totally separate world on the big screen.
In the early nineties, Bob Balaban appeared on Seinfeld as recurring character Russell Dalrymple, the President of NBC who was obsessed with Elaine. His story was sort of a tragic one on the series, but this week Balaban revealed that Russell’s original story arc should have been very different.
There was a time when live-action TV series often boasted animals as main characters, with Mr. Ed and Flipper serving as two of the most popular examples. And now there's a Marley & Me sequel TV series in the works. Can we all agree that this idea rings slightly dumb as shit and that it’ll never work?
This week, NBC ordered an American remake of the hit British comedy, which will be coming from Bill Lawrence and more. This time around, I’m presuming the network is not going to throw Joel McHale into a sloppy t-shirt and consider him a prime candidate for the lead role. Here’s what’s going on with the new project.
For whatever reason, Brad Pitt has taken a liking to Jimmy Fallon and his ridiculous onscreen shenanigans. The two have come together to create viral videos before, and last night The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon introduced a brand new video from the dynamic duo, called “Breakdance Conversation.”
As enjoyable an actress as she is, Krysten Ritter has a knack for getting attached to shortlived series. Has there been a vast anti-Krysten Ritter conspiracy happening in TV land for the past decade?
Over the years, Saturday Night Live has written plenty of sketches that haven’t made it to the live airing. Veteran SNL writer Robert Smigel told Live From New York biographers James Andrew Miller and Tom Shales that there was one political sketch that President Barack Obama actually got cut.
NBC spent a good chunk of the summer rebuilding its comedy lineup. The network only has four comedies airing this fall, with two of those comedies landing on Thursday nights and two airing on Tuesday nights. With those limited options, you would think that NBC would be capable of matching up its comedies with ease. However, that doesn't seem to be the case.
The Voice is switching up coaches for its eighth season. While the show has featured a rotating crew of four coaches, this spring’s series will be fairly close to the original lineup that launched The Voice just a few short years ago. Christina Aguilera will be returning to NBC’s singing competition series.
Saturday Night Live brought former cast member Bill Hader back to host the late night sketch series this past weekend. The episode was filled with a few new gems, as well as the return of Stefan and much, much more. In fact, the episode was so jam-packed that a sketch featuring Hader called “Coal Miners” was cut by NBC for time.
It was only a couple of months ago that the NFL was hoping to force a big name to pay to play the Super Bowl Halftime show. Luckily, it seems the league has managed to sign on a famous name without following through on those absurd monetary expectations. On Friday, news broke that Katy Perry will be playing the halftime show at Super Bowl XLIX.
SNL’s Season 40 has featured a couple of big hosts so far, but neither Chris Pratt nor Sarah Silverman is nearly as exciting as Bill Hader’s big return to the show that made him a household name. Here’s a first look at this Saturday’s big SNL episode. Understandably, Hader’s been paired up with his former co-worker and veteran SNL cast member Kenan Thompson in the promos.
Rarely does anything in the TV world get accomplished as quickly as this series of decisions. Not 24 hours after NBC announced their script commitment for 20th Century Fox TV's small screen version of Say Anything, the studio has completely dropped the project.
