Kerry Washington's D.C.-set soap is so much fun, it's scandalous.
Hello, you've reached the winter of my discontent. That's because, for some unfathomable reason, Ben Stiller has decided to turn his great post-college coming-of-age comedy from 1994 (sorry, Singles, this is the far-superior flick) and turn it into a television series for NBC.
No longer content with reliving his past glories on the big screen and on Broadway, Sylvester Stallone is now expanding his nostalgia tour to television. News dropped yesterday that Sly is in talks to bring John Rambo to television. But why stop there? Here are five other Stallone characters that could easily headline their own series.
The CW recently revealed that Lindsey Gort (boy, that's a tough name to pull off) will play the young version of Samantha Jones, who was famous on Sex and the City for her super sexual, anything goes outlook.
A small-screen staple since the late '80s, the improv comedy series Whose Line Is It Anyway? returned in its latest incarnation on The CW last night, with a few familiar faces (Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles, who were regulars on the long-running ABC version) and a couple new ones (host Aisha Tyler and guest player Gary Anthony Williams, whose seat will be occupied by a rotating crew of comics -- among them Heather Anne Campbell, who appeared in the second episode that aired right after the premiere, and Keegan-Michael Key -- in the weeks ahead). But the format hasn't changed at all; it's still a half-hour of intro-level improv games where, as Tyler constantly reminds us, everything is made up and the points don't matter.
We had some high hopes for this summer camp-set series, given how much we love the movies Camp (no relation), Meatballs and Wet Hot American Summer, but honestly, after seeing a couple advance episodes of this show, we'd rather be watching reruns of Salute Your Shorts.
Though Marc Cherry's Devious Maids may be a bit of an on-the-nose tribute to his wildly successful Desperate Housewives both in title and structure, the new Lifetime series' pilot was far better than most of the latter-day Housewives episodes. Maids is funny, dark and stars four Latina women -- if the rest of the series follow the pilot's lead (and after watching episode two, "Setting the Table," I'm optimistic it will), Lifetime will have something worth watching other than Dance Moms and How I Met Your Mother reruns.
CBS has released photos of the 15 new members of the Big Brother cast, and along with their standard headshots, they included more "fun" poses. Most of them just tried to look cute or serious, but there were a few with some actually personality. So these are the contestants we're already rooting for, based simply on their very telling pictures.
MTV's Awkward. has steadily been one of our favorite summer sitcoms for two seasons now. Though the Season 3 premiere wasn't great, we assumed that Jenna and the gang would bounce back quickly... and it turns out, we were wrong. After watching last night's midseason finale, "Redefining Jenna," we're starting to wonder if we need to DTR back to "not worth watching." Here's why:
With the Red Wedding over and done with, Game of Thrones sets the stage for next year's around of atrocities in the Season 3 finale, "Mhysa." Valar Morghulis and see you next year.
