Devour The Walking Dead's Talked About Scene From Season 4's Isolation

“The Walking Dead” is a show known for its amount of blood, gore, and of course, character deaths. Character deaths are probably the most annoying things fans have to deal with when it comes to their favorite shows, and “The Walking Dead” does a great job of testing its fandom’s loyalty in that regard. Executive producers Robert Kirkman and Scott M. Gimple were recently interviewed by The Hollywood Reporter about what fans can expect from the upcoming season. One of the things discussed is the reality of deaths in the show. “We’re trying not to be the ‘character death show,’” said Gimple. “It’s a part of the world. In the  [ Read More ]

AMC is cleaning house and reality shows are no longer welcome. The network best known for its scripted dramas like “Mad Men,” “Breaking Bad” and “The Walking Dead” tried their hand at reality-based television.

Shonda Rhimes Jimmy Kimmel Live

Shonda Rhimes just keeps ruling ABC with her bevy of hit shows, such as “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and now her latest hit, “How to Get Away with Murder,” starring Viola Davis as the electric lead character. But now it appears that Rhimes, who has had her foot firmly in the world of drama (with some dramedy sprinkled throughout), wants to dive into the world of full-out comedy. According to Deadline, Rhimes’s Shondaland has backed a new comedy television project created by former “Felicity” stars and friends Scott Foley (currently co-starring on “Scandal”) and Greg Grunberg. The two will write the story, with Foley writing the teleplay. They will also act  [ Read More ]

Stephen Collins Revolution NBC

Stephen Collins was best known for his role as the pastor dad on “7th Heaven,” but now, unfortunately, his squeaky-clean appearance has been tarnished by the revelation of his confessions to child molestation. Because of this, Collins has been losing acting jobs left and right, one of which being a role in “Ted 2.” Now the actor has been dropped from one of the roles that probably would have been extremely beneficial–a role on ABC’s hit show “Scandal.” The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Collins has been fired from his job at “Scandal,” who first appeared on the show in 2012 as news anchor Reed Wallace. Deadline provides an update  [ Read More ]

Ryan Murphy

Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story: Freak Show” is set to bring the creepy back to cable television just in time for fall and the Halloween season, but Murphy is sparing some of his attention from the horror and lending his television magic to the world of real life crimes. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Murphy is bringing “American Crime Story” to FX. Just like “American Horror Story,” “American Crime Story” will be an anthology series with every season on crimes that have shaped the news cycle and the American imagination. The first season, composed of 10 episodes, is called “The People v. O.J. Simpson.” This particular season is based on  [ Read More ]

AMC’s popular zombie show “The Walking Dead” has been renewed for a sixth season. This news comes only a few days before Season Five premieres Oct. 12. The Hollywood Reporter states that no episode count for Season Six has been revealed yet. But regardless of how many episodes the sixth season will have, it’s no surprise that AMC would renew the show. It could be argued that “The Walking Dead” is one of the few shows on AMC with lasting power; “Halt and Catch Fire” and “Low Winter Sun,” two shows that were promoted as gripping character-driven dramas, but both were cancelled after the first season. AMC’s other cult classic  [ Read More ]

Let's Make A Deal - Accelerator Game Design - Digital Rendering

The CBS daytime game show “Let’s Make a Deal” was always a high-stakes game, but now it’s upped the stakes even higher with its new roulette-inspired car game “Accelerator.” If you watched the Oct. 6 episode, you’ve probably already seen the game in action, but just in case, here’s what the game entails, according to the release. “One lucky trader will get the chance to spin the giant Accelerator wheel and test their luck to win a brand new car.

Saturday Night Live Accused of Lifting Groundlings Skit

Saturday Night Live - Season 2011

It would seem that “Saturday Night Live” is having a lukewarm beginning to its new season. Even with the amount of fat-trimming that happened over the summer and the additions of Michael Che and Pete Davidson before the new season began, the show doesn’t seem to be doing as much as had been hyped. The lukewarm beginning seems to going further south with members of The Groundlings saying the show lifted one of their skits. According to Entertainment Weekly, Groundlings comedians Kimberly Condict and Vanessa Ragland have stated on Twitter that “SNL” stole their Tina Turner bit. In their bit, Condict and Ragland–in Turner wigs and short red dresses–perform their  [ Read More ]

Nicholas D’Agosto Cast As Harvey Dent in Gotham

Masters of Sex Nicholas D'Agosto

A lot of people love “Gotham,” the new Batman-themed show on Fox. Critics have given it praise for providing a new look to the Batman franchise, but if I have one big problem with the show, it’s that they are really creating a circular type of history with these characters. How is it that the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents was investigated by then-Detective Gordon and Harvey Bullock, but was also witnessed by a soon-to-be Catwoman and also involves a young Poison Ivy (now known as Ivy Pepper)? Not to mention the fact that the soon-to-be Riddler works for the Gotham PD and an unnamed comedian auditions for Fish Mooney’s  [ Read More ]
