Altruism aside, NBC’s Red Nose Day always manages to put together some impressive parodies, as we saw last year with the Game of Thrones cast getting together for an album. This year, The Walking Dead takes it to some bizarre heights, as Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus imagine a Walking Dead add-on in the style of the Star Wars Holiday Special.

More often than not, HBO’s Silicon Valley makes headlines for one major set piece gag per year, belying some of the improvisational talent that goes into making one of TV’s best comedies. Case in point, watch T.J. Miller insult Stephen Toblowsky for over four and a half minutes, an outtake of old person jokes to rival any gag on the series to date.
The comedic talents of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg may not always have a guiding hand in AMC’s Preacher, though the pilot more than carried some visceral influence. If you don’t believe us, take it from pair themselves, as AMC released the Preacher pilot with Rogen and Goldberg’s commentary!
Sweet merciful death, may you never again darken TV’s door. Earlier this week we learned that Showtime’s Homeland would chronicle the tender time between presidencies during its tenure in New York, though questions loomed as to that big, bedridden cliffhanger from last year. Fear not, friends, for Homeland Season 6 will indeed have a Friend in Quinn, alive and well.
It was initially reported sometime last year that Boston Public vet David E. Kelley is developing a limited event series based on Stephen King’s detective thriller Mr. Mercedes. The series now officially has a home with AT&T’s Audience Network, with Star Trek’s Anton Yelchin and Harry Potter’s Brendan Gleeson on board to play the lead roles.
Cameron Crowe fan or otherwise, we’re at least anxious for a look at the Almost Famous director’s new Showtime Roadies, debuting June 26. Thankfully, the network has obliged, adding Office vet Rainn Wilson into a new full-length trailer getting to know the characters.
July seems like a criminally long wait for the second season of USA’s breakout drama Mr. Robot, but not nearly as much time will have passed after Elliott’s fsociety hack. A new Season 2 trailer sets the stage thirty days after the “Five/Nine” event, teasing the nooks and crannies of Elliott’s worsening breakdown.
In the wrong hands, AMC’s ‘Preacher’ could have been a bloated mess.
HBO’s Westworld adaptation has often found itself the center of a larger narrative around the network’s expensive missteps, following production halts and rumors a premiere might be pushed to 2017. Not so, apparently, as HBO now confirms Westworld will bow in late 2016, along with Sarah Jessica Parker’s new show and others.
Do you remember Street Sharks. Sure you do. This was one of a whole fleet of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles knockoffs that popped up during the franchise’s heyday in the early and mid-1990s. There was Extreme Dinosaurs, Stone Protectors, Bicycle Mice From Mars (from f---ing MARS!), and the Street Sharks, who were, like, totally radical dudes who were transformed into totally radical shark-dudes by their scientist dad. There was Ripster, Jab, Streex, Big Slammu, and Roxie the female Street Shark who was totally “jawsome.” Remember her?
