A&E Sh*tcans David Hasselhoff
Friday, December 10 by

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.

Rick Gervais Gunning For Celebs At This Year’s ‘Golden Globes’
Wednesday, December 8 by

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.

Wednesday, December 8 by

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.

6 Million Watched ‘The Walking Dead’ Season Finale
Tuesday, December 7 by

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.

Good news for people who like serial killers and ridiculous plots (I kid because I love). Showtime has renewed “Dexter” for its sixth season.

NBC Signs for Steve Carell Mailman Comedy
Thursday, December 2 by

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.

Danny Pudi Talks ‘Community’ Stop-Motion Christmas Episode and ‘Farscape’
Wednesday, December 1 by

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.

‘Sons of Anarchy’ Actress Winter Ave Zoli
Thursday, November 25 by

A former stage actress, ballerina, and one-time resident of the Czech Republic, Winter Ave Zoli is best known these days as the hard-headed porn star sweetheart of bearded biker outlaw Opie Winston on FX’s leading series "Sons of Anarchy." And if you have a hard time picturing this tousle-haired beauty as the type who’d get down on camera for a quick couple hundred, it’s all the better; the contrast between Zoli’s disarming look of wide-eyed innocence and the seedy lifestyle played out by her on-screen alter ego is exactly what makes her character a thrilling fixture in the series.
A word from Winter: "Lyla and Opie are drawn to each other because they both have this sort of sweet sadness."

Jorge Garcia Locked Into ‘Alcatraz’
Monday, November 22 by

When “Lost” was winding down, I had two big questions. Where the hell is Walt, and what embarrassing roles will Jorge Garcia have to play going forward? Hopefully, he won’t have to at all because there’s news this morning that he’s re-teaming with J.J. Abrams.

‘Community’ Plans Stop-Motion Holiday Episode
Friday, November 19 by

Remember the classic “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” Christmas special with the herky-jerky animation? If you don’t, you’re a communist. Even so, you might appreciate that “Community” is planning a similar stop-motion animation holiday spoof.

This Is Not a Dream: CBS Kills ‘Medium’ Mid-Season

Bad news for people who like bad television. CBS has canceled Patricia Arquette’s supernatural thriller, “Medium.”

Fox Developing Ghost Cops and Ghost Lawyers Show
Wednesday, November 17 by

Director Gore Verbinski and writer Terry Rossio are turning the crime procedurial on its ass. They’re putting a supernatural twist on the cop/legal drama, setting up “Magical Law” at Fox. The title makes me think more of wizards than ghosts, not that that would be any less ridiculous.

Playboy TV to Mock Lonely Men with Shows Aimed at Couples
Wednesday, November 17 by

In order to avoid waking mother, most viewers will be watching with the audio off. This makes it difficult to say whether they will notice the ‘couple friendly’ intent of the programs. After all, these are the same people who haven’t yet noticed that boobies are free on the Internet.

Amber Tamblyn Butts Heads With ‘House’
Monday, November 8 by

I got to see the next two episodes of “House” with guest star Amber Tamblyn as new hire Martha M. Masters. She’s a foil to House’s (Hugh Laurie) abrasive antics because she believes in pure honesty and ethics. Tamblyn revealed in a conference call the other day that there really is a Martha M. Masters.

‘The Walking Dead’ Lives For Season 2
Monday, November 8 by

Thanks to a buttload (Nielson terminology) of people supporting zombie drama by tuning into “The Walking Dead,” AMC has picked up the show for a second season of 13 episodes. Yay, good television and the living dead can survive!

Real Gun Found on ‘Law & Order: Los Angeles’ Set
Thursday, November 4 by

Gun changed for awesomticity's sake.
A real honest to goodness can kill a brotha hand gun was found on the set of "Law & Order: Los Angeles." Hit Fix reports the NBC show was filming in Culver City on Wednesday when a cameraman spotted it on a rock. Los Angeles police spokeswoman Karen Rayner says "the semiautomatic handgun was in working order. It will be test-fired, with the results logged for possible crime matches."
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. I live right around the Culver City area in Los Angeles. That's where I lay my head at night. How am I supposed to feel safe now knowing that thing was found there? Skeet Ulrich has no right traipsing around my town. The gun on the rock, yeah whatever, but Skeet?! Now I have to start the moving process. I don't have time for this right now. The new Screen Junkies site launches next week! You like how I worked that in there? ;) ;) ;)

Don Draper Says “What?” A Lot
Wednesday, November 3 by

You would guess by this montage that Don Draper is a bit of a dumbass on "Mad Men." For such a creative genius, he doesn't seem to grasp much that's told to him. Or maybe he's going deaf and no one has diagnosed it properly. Quick, someone clap in front of his face and see if he reacts. If he asks "what?" again we should immediately book an appointment with someone who looks into brains. A doctor perhaps!
See Don Draper perplexed after the jump…

‘Community’ Turns Hilary Duff Into a B*tch
Wednesday, November 3 by

Of all the Disney kids, Hilary Duff has the sweetest good girl image even by Disney standards. No scandals, no feuds, just wholesome music and family friendly movies (except for a few questionable paparazzi pics). So what did "Community" do to make her so nasty? She plays Meghan on this Thursday’s episode, leader of a Greendale clique who terrorize Britta, Shirley and Annie.

‘How I Met Your Mother’ Actress Cobie Smulders
Wednesday, November 3 by

In an effort to avoid penning a 700-page dissertation on the specific facets of Cobie Smulders’ infinite hotness, we’ll sum it up like this: Oh my god. Best known as that dorky Canadian newscaster chick from the CBS sitcom “How I Met Your Mother,” Smulders is set to grace the cover of the December issue of Maxim. And based on a set of prints leaked from the shoot, it looks like that particular issue is going to fly off the racks faster than most. If you want a copy, they’ll all be here at the Screenjunkies office. But you’ll have to fight us with katana swords to get one. We’ve been practicing.
A word from Cobie: “I had no idea what I wanted to do after college, but acting seemed like a good start.”

Watch Conan’s Under Five Minutes ‘Show Zero’
Tuesday, November 2 by

Conan O'Brien put on a five-minute trial run of his upcoming TBS show in a conference room. Here's hoping the production value of the actual show exceeds this one. I know it's not NBC, but paint is so affordable these days. I don't want to ruin the guest since he only stays for 30 seconds, so I'll only say that it causes a BIG BANG THEORY. Diet Coke probably gets more air time than anything else. Hey, someone's gotta pay for those spotlight gels.
Check out "Show Zero" after the jump… 

Everyone Watched ‘The Walking Dead’
Monday, November 1 by

Hordes of viewers shuffled toward the series premiere of "The Walking Dead" last night on AMC. So much so, that the new series made television history. The first series about zombies ("The Hills" doesn't count) netted a record-breaking 5.3 million viewers and a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating.
That's the largest premiere of any cable series this year as well as the largest in AMC history. That number would probably have been larger if football and the World Series weren't on last night, and folks like myself weren't out for Halloween. The writing is on the wall. Get ready for zombie over-exposure. They're the new Betty White. (THR)
