Our favorite ballerinas are coming back to primetime.
In case we're not enough for you, there will be plenty of televised snark ahead.
Boardwalk Empire sent another character to swim with the fishes this week.
Why not Meds? Or Patients? Or Baby Docs? Or Best Medicine? See? Naming TV shows is easy.
Fox says no to J-Lo as an American Idol judge and The Office considers Danny McBride and Rhys Darby to fill the void left behind by Steve Carell. More rarely-made good judgments by the TV folks in today's news...
If you want an Emmy, you might have to sing for it.
I groaned along with the rest of the world at the thought of Scrubs returning for a superfluous, and, honestly, very desperate Season 9, and watching the premiere I wavered a little bit, but that feeling was mostly reinforced. The first episode wasn't horrible by any means, but I just don't understand why we're still doing this. There weren't many laughs, I missed Carla, there wasn't enough Elliot, and Dr. Cox's schtick has long worn very, very thin. But then I hung in there for episode two, and surprisingly, I laughed a lot.
After countless agonizing months of waiting, the first new episode of Glee since its May premiere is finally close at hand, and since next week's kickoff is likely to take television musical conventions into outer space, it made us nostalgic for some of our favorite past musical moments on other shows. After all, it's not like Glee invented music. The concept of "auditioning for the role of kicker," sure, but music's been around at least since these other shows aired. Here are our all-time favorite people-bustin'-out-singin'-on-TV moments.
Ah Scrubs. We used to love it, but then we had to PH it. It just wasn't so consistently funny anymore. Still, it definitely deserved a better send off than that twisted fairy tale mess of a "series finale" that aired on NBC, but I wasn't entirely looking forward to its return, especially if it was going to deliver more lackluster episodes. There's not much I hate more than shows that just don't know when to quit. However, the two episode premiere (on its new network) actually won me over, and made me remember why I used to enjoy this show in the first place. Here's why...
The folks over at Scrubs are reportedly delighted to finally have a network that takes them seriously. The move from NBC to ABC has resulted in all kinds of fancy star treatment like set visits from the network (this had apparently never once happened at NBC, according to creator Bill Lawrence, which seems awfully rude of them), and now, to get you hyped for the show's mid-season ABC premiere, the network has ponied up the dough for six webisodes, set to premiere this fall.
