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.
Yesterday, we learned that NBC was putting together yet another TV series idea based on a classic film. This time around, the network wants to turn Say Anything into a TV show. However, the original cast and crew who shot the movie have now spoken out about Say Anything’s new premise and TV potential.
Romance on TV has seen the highs of Moonlighting and the lows of Dating Naked, and it’s impossible to tell where NBC’s newest project will land on the spectrum. The network is developing a small screen sequel for Cameron Crowe’s directorial debut Say Anything…, the latest in a growing line of WTF throwback projects happening all over the TV landscape.
Sarah Silverman is headed to Saturday Night Live this week. During the 1993-1994 season, Silverman was a featured player on Saturday Night Live. During her time in the cast, she got up to plenty of shenanigans, and this week she spoke out about the time she stabbed another SNL worker in the head.
The world is soon going to be plunged into complete Peter Pan mayhem, with both a feature film and NBC’s live musical coming. NBC is actually double dipping into J.M.
