Football season is upon us once more, and while my pint glass runneth over with excitement, I can understand that non-sports fans probably aren’t enthused about seeing big green fields and big angry men taking over their televisions. So here are five things you could be watching instead of Thursday Night Football.
NBC may have cancelled Betsy Brandt’s latest series, The Michael J. Fox Show, but it seems the professional actress doesn’t hold a grudge against the network. She’s signed on to return to the NBC drama Parenthood for a recurring role in the show’s sixth and final season. Brandt formerly popped up in an episode of Parenthood back in 2012.
Here are five series that never got the Primetime Emmy attention they deserve, and probably never will. This obviously isn’t an exhaustive list, and doesn’t reflect the entire TV landscape, but these are series that have been on for multiple years that mostly retained the same level of quality and enjoyment.
The network’s full 2014-2015 lineup included the announcements that Parenthood’s Season 6 and Parks and Recreation’s Season 7 will be the final ones for both. I think a big group “aww” is in order here, but not the same kind of “aww” that Community turned into a catchphrase.
NBC has officially unveiled their 2014-2015 lineup, which reveals some big changes to their schedule the most notable of which is a very different Thursday night line-up. NBC has traditionally blocked out four half-hour slots for comedies on Thursday night, however this Fall, they've set The Biggest Loser in the 8:00 p.m. slot, followed by two new comedies and then the return of Parenthood...
Because it wouldn't be a Parenthood episode without a few tears shed, the NBC drama wrapped up its fifth season by bringing Sarah Ramos back to give us an update on Haddie. Spoilers ahead if you haven't seen "The Pontiac"!
After another fairly emotional episode of Parenthood last night -- thanks Kristina -- this series is ready to take us to its finale. Is this going to be one of those happy season endings where most of the drama seems wrapped up? Or are we going to be left hanging on some big issues, like Julia and Joel's future, and whether or not Zeke and Camille really sell the house. And then there's Haddie. Who? Remember Haddie! She's home! And she has a girlfriend.
Holy Crucifictorious! The Jason Katims-a-palooza that is Friday Night at The Luncheonette has finally arrived. Part one of the four-part web series mash up of the showrunner's two biggest shows — Friday Night Lights and Parenthood — arrived online today and it's worth getting excited about. And thank goodness because our clear eyes and full hearts have been waiting for this.
And just like that: everyone and their mother is getting in on the digital series game. First came the announcement that Jason Katims’ two stalwart series — >Parenthood and Friday Night Lights — were getting the tiny tube treatment, and now it seems that several other NBC series are getting the same in the wake of their series’ hiatuses, including Parks and Recreation, Grimm, and Chicago Fire. It’s almost as if the networks are taking the Internet seriously or something.
The Bravermans have hit some tough challenges in recent episodes, and now fans will have to wait over a month to find out how they tackle them. As the preview for the series' upcoming episode returns, there will be no new Parenthood episode until after the Olympics.
NBC released a new preview of their upcoming comedy About a Boy, giving us a look at Jason Katims' small screen adaptation of Nick Hornby's best-selling novel by the same name. David Walton plays Will Freeman, a one-hit-wonder rocker who's living off the royalties of his sole accomplishment and enjoying single life when Minnie Driver's Fiona and her adorable son Marcus (Benjamin Stockham) show up next door and turn his life upside down.
2013 has been a great year for television, so narrowing down our list of favorites was no easy task. As TV Blend has numerous writers with varying tastes in TV shows, we decided to go solo this year in sharing our Top 5 lists of the best series of 2013. This is Jessica's list, which begins with...
With Jason Ritter set to star opposite a different Gilmore Girl in Fox’s upcoming new drama Us & Them, the fate of Parenthood’s Sarah and Mark seemed pretty much sealed. Ritter’s Parenthood character exited the series last season, but apparently, we haven’t seen the last of him, as he’s set to guest star later this season.
Between Scandal and Parenthood, it seems like election season is still in full swing on Thursday nights. For the NBC drama, Kristina’s mayoral race is heating up and the preview for next week’s “The Ring” suggests she’s considering going negative. But this is only after Bob Little takes a shot at her and Adam. By the way, what exactly is going on in that news article Heather shows Kristina?
The Bravermans are back! And you want to stop reading now if you didn't watch last night's Season 5 premiere, as we're about to get into spoiler territory. The above video gives us a look ahead at what's coming up this season, and after last night's episode, which introduced a number of exciting developments, the biggest of which may be Amber's engagement to Ryan! Of course, there's also Kristina's campaign, the new baby for Crosby and Julia's work situation, or lack thereof.
