They’ve taken television by storm with their hour-long dramas, and now AMC is preparing to run a train. The network gave a series order to “Hell On Wheels,” a drama about the construction of the transcontinental railroad.
Eminem a.k.a. Slim Shady a.k.a. Marshall Mathers is stepping into the ring with “Sons of Anarchy” creator Kurt Sutter for new boxing drama, “Southpaw.” Dreamworks bought the pitch in the room, and not just because the rapper stared at them intimidatingly.
Screw plot, gimme zombie executions!
Did you know the “Modern Family” actress is twenty years old? It’s totally cool to gawk!
Ethan Hawke is in talks to slum it on Fox with the procedural drama Exit Strategy. The high octane successor to “24” will star Hawke as the leader of an elite team that helps retrieve CIA agents from missions gone awry.
He can be your man in motion.
And the winners are…
This show seems to write itself, as officers advise the producers of strange real cases they’ve investigated. Rookie officer Ben Sherman gets a surprise in a seemingly routine domestic disturbance.
David Hasselhoff will do anything. ANYTHING. So it came as no surprise when he scored a reality show on A&E. Now the network has pulled the show after only two episodes. Keep in mind that this is the channel that has found success with a show about raiding storage units.
The kid’s got skill. In an expert skewering of the mainstream media, this little dude took what was meant to be a somber, ratings-boosting moment on”The Today Show” and turned it into a veritable “screw you” to somber moments everywhere.
When Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes earlier this year, he kept saying he’d never be invited back. He let loose with celebrity roasting, but now he is coming back to host again on January 16. Gervais told a conference call full of reporters that he plans to be even bolder with his jokes this time.
Will The Office bring in Billy Connolly or Sandy Duncan to take over Dunder Mifflin from Steve Carell? Creator of the British Office and executive producer of the American one, Ricky Gervais said we’re all thinking wrong.
She knows exactly what she’s doing.
More than just the resident hot wife on FX’s ‘The League,’ Katie Aselton is slowly building her cred as an indie director, producer, and comedic actress.
Just to put it in perspective, remember that political blog you started back in college? It received six total clicks, four of which were from you at different machines around the computer lab. Multiply that times a million, and you’ve got the same numbers that AMC is putting up.
Once you’ve watched NBC’s ‘Outsourced’ for a while, you begin to see the show’s inward value — namely the fact that for a few minutes of every episode, Australian actress Pippa Black shows up on screen.
Last night, Katy Perry appeared on “The Simpsons” as a real person, not a jaundice cartoon. The live-action show full of Springfield puppets had a premise, but it was inconsequential considering Katy had a tight red leather dress stretched over her curves.
We’ve seen a bunch of trailers and teasers for HBO’s upcoming fantasy series “Game of Thrones,” and last night the network aired a ten minute behind the scenes featurette. Normally I’m not a huge fantasy guy, as my girlfriend says it cheapens the relationship, but I’m quite excited for this.
Episode 6 (the series finale), in which our stinky crew raids the CDC liquor cabinet like it’s the last day on Earth, wastes hot water despite orders to the contrary, and more!
In their ongoing pissing contest with ‘Family Guy,’ Seth Green and the ‘Robot Chicken’ gang have created a third Star Wars special as well.
“Nip/Tuck” was one of my favorite shows. I actually thought the first two seasons were the best television had to offer. So I’m happy to get the Complete Series DVD set. I have a fantasy of one day rewatching the entire series. Maybe when I Am Legend happens and it’s just me holed up with my DVD collection keeping the monsters out.
This is Anna Torv. She is currently the star of a show called ‘Fringe,’ wherein each week she goes head to head with some kind of supernatural phenomenon/murderer/alien/maniacal corporate executive.
Conan O’Brien successfully hosted his show in jeggings. Lookin’ good, Coco.
Good news for people who like serial killers and ridiculous plots (I kid because I love). Showtime has renewed “Dexter” for its sixth season.
If I had a dime for every project that Steve Carell has sold I’d have enough dimes to put into a sock and beat my mailman. Speaking of mailmen, Steve Carell has sold a post office comedy to NBC.
Eating cats isn’t too hard on the waistline.
In this commercial for Logitech Revue with Google TV, Kevin Bacon plays Kevin Bacon’s number one fan. It leaves me wondering if this is what Kevin actually looks like when he’s not in front of the cameras. When Kyra Sedgwick rolls over in the morning, is this what she sees?
Michael Bay directed this new holiday spot for Victoria’s Secret. Seems like these ads pretty much direct themselves now. This year’s doesn’t even have any explosions. Smells like a phoned in job if I’ve ever smelled one.
Dani Pudi plays the character on “Community” who provides most of the show’s self-referential meta humor. So it makes sense that Abed is responsible for a stop-motion animated episode in the tradition of the Rankin Bass specials.
