J.K. Rowling Teams With HBO And The BBC For The Casual Vacancy Miniseries
HBO and the BBC have teamed up with Rowling to turn her 2012 novel into a three-hour miniseries to be aired at an undisclosed date. There’s a joke to be made about a vacancy on HBO’s schedule being casually taken by this miniseries, but it’s not up to Rowling’s standards.
How I Met Your Dad Casts Meg Ryan For The Voiceover Role
Meg Ryan is following in Bob Saget’s footsteps. No, she’s not hosting a new incarnation of America’s Funniest Home Videos, but she has been tapped to provide the weekly voiceover for the How I Met Your Mother spinoff, aptly titled How I Met Your Dad. To answer your other question, a few episodes of Web Therapy and a lot of hanging out. That’s what she’s been up to lately.
Bad Teacher Review: CBS's New Comedy Is A Solid B+ With Potential For Extra Credit
Taking over for The Crazy Ones as the lone single-camera comedy on CBS' Thursday night line-up is Hilary Winston's small screen take on the 2011 movie Bad Teacher. Based on -- but not a sequel to -- the movie that starred Cameron Diaz, CBS's new comedy gets off to a solid start with potential to be a great new series, thanks in part to a well-rounded cast, led by Ari Graynor as the titular "bad teacher."
Orange Is The New Black Clip Has Piper Showing Off Her Egg-cellent Artwork
We still have a little while to wait for the second season of Orange is the New Black, however we're now close enough to the June 6 debut of Season 2 to start seeing footage. That includes a clip from the first episode, which gives us a look at what Taylor Schilling's character is up to when things get started. Spoilers (obviously) if you're not caught up through the first season of Orange is the New Black!

Supernatural Watch: Season 9, Episode 19 - Alex Annie Alexis Ann
We’re at that point in a typical season of Supernatural, with five episodes remaining, that there’s bound to be one final filler episode. Last season it was the fun and touching “Pac Man Fever” with Charlie and Dean battling zombie Nazis. This year we’re treated to the return of another female character – Sheriff Jodie Mills – but the mood this time around was a lot less festive.
William Shatner Live-Tweeted An Episode Of CW's The Originals Last Night
Here's something you might not have realized was happening last night. William Shatner live-Tweeted his way through an episode of CW's The Originals. Why? Presumably for our amusement, in which case it was a pretty successful endeavor on his part.
Glee Watch Season 5, Episode 17: Opening Night
Gleeks, last night's Glee focused on Rachel's big Broadway opening night, Sue found love in NYC, and Schuester and Emma had their baby!
True Blood, The Sopranos And Other HBO Shows Headed To Amazon Prime, HBO Go Coming To Fire TV
HBO series are coming to Amazon Prime. This sounds like a pretty big get for Amazon, especially considering HBO hasn't regularly made their series available through streaming video services outside of their own HBO Go. The multiyear deal will not only include a number of popular previously-aired series, but also eventually some of HBO's current series, Girls and The Newsroom included.
Arrested Development's Mitch Hurwitz Signs Multi-Year Creative Deal With Netflix
He and his banner The Hurwitz Company will officially be creating and producing new comedies for Netflix for at least the next two years. It won’t only be inside jobs though, as Hurwitz will be looking to develop series with other creators in a non-writing capacity, though he would still be an executive producer and consultant.
Watch David Letterman And Stephen Colbert Prove Transitions Don't Have To Be Ugly
In theory, it shouldn’t really matter whether a talk show host gets along with his predecessor, but as we’ve learned numerous times, the smooth, friendly handoffs feel a whole lot better. It’s nice to think of the departing legend as rooting for continued success, and if tonight’s interview is any indication, no one will be rooting harder for Stephen Colbert than David Letterman
Faking It Review: Stereotypes Meet Screwball Faux Lesbian Dramedy
About as relevant to the gay lifestyle as Modern Family is, Faking It shoots for the stars, but only hits a bunch of brightly colored rainbows on “Vote for Me” posters. Maybe this is how high school goes now, and I’m just a half-generation too early to understand.
Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Watch: The Only Light In The Darkness
Oh, the suspense is maddening! Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is generating some serious momentum with its post-Captain America: The Winter Soldier episodes and tonight's episode was no exception, as "The Only Light in the Darkness" divided the group. Spoilers if you haven't seen it yet!
John Malkovich Is A Violently Quirky Blackbeard In NBC's First Crossbones Promo
After watching the dynamic trailer above for NBC’s upcoming adventure drama Crossbones, it’s obvious that my bucket list has been sorely missing the entry “watching John Malkovich play Blackbeard the pirate,” and is in need of an immediate amending. Thankfully, I’ll only have to wait a little longer than a month to catch the Oscar-nominated actor in a most legendary turn as one of history’s most notorious villains.
Petals On The Wind Trailer Teases Romance, Drama And Vengeance
We now have our first look at Lifetime's upcoming Flowers in the Attic followup, Petals on the Wind. The trailer for the TV movie begins by reminding us of the dark events that transpired in the first film, which aired earlier this year, after which we see what's ahead for Cathy and Chris a decade later. For those who've read the V.C. Andrews series, not all of the scenes glimpsed in the second half of the trailer should be familiar.
