Marvel's upcoming 'Daredevil' Netflix series recently promised to unveil its horned hero at New York Comic-Con, but that hasn't stopped the 2015 superhero drama from adding to its ranks before the big show. 'The Leftovers' star Scott Glenn will play Marvel martial artist "Stick," best known as teacher and blind mentor to the man without fear, Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock.
As if the past summer hadn't cemented 'The Simpsons' stranglehold on all reality, the past weekend saw the long-running FOX animated comedy taking over the Hollywood Bowl for a star-studded concert of Springfield's favorite musical numbers. Everyone from Conan O'Brien to Jon Lovitz showed up to belt out famous tunes, and we've compiled every cromulent number in one place just for you!
Last week 'SNL' season 40 saw one of its highest-profile re-toolings yet, as Weekend Update host Cecily Strong was replaced by writer Michael Che, the first instance of two men running the desk. Now, with three season 39 cast members already let go, 'SNL' has added comedian Pete Davidson to its ranks, in the process confirming yet another departure from the long-running NBC sketch comedy show's roster.
In this week’s edition, I start my coverage of the Fall pilot season, and speak with the creator of the best comedy currently on television, 'You're the Worst'.
Last week we were shocked to learn that 'The Legend of Korra' would debut its fourth book "Balance" on October 3, just over a month after the season 3 finale, and the first to air entirely on Nickelodeon streaming. Mixed reception though the announcement brought, the 'Korra' creators have even better tidings to offer with their upcoming New York Comic-Con 2014 panel, and a brand-new image of Korra's new look in season 4!
Last Thursday saw a uniquely surprising shift in 'SNL''s upcoming 40th anniversary season, as senior "Weekend Update" host Cecily Strong was relieved from the desk, and replaced with writer Michael Che alongside head writer Colin Jost. Many had taken the swap as an unfair slight against Strong in favor of Jost's writer seniority, though now Strong herself has spoken out on her feelings toward the "Weekend Update" shakeup.
Crime just isn't what it used to be. That's something that 'Boardwalk Empire' has perhaps ruminated on since the beginning, but something that has become more and more glaring with each passing season, with the introduction of foils and central conflicts for Nucky Thompson and the other major criminal players in New York and Chicago to navigate. Perhaps the reason why the fifth and final season has thus far felt as disorienting as the opening shot of "The Good Listener" is that there's no real singular conflict or thread running through it all. In the vernacular of 'The Big Lebowski,' there's no rug to tie this room together, man.
The rules are simple (in fact, they're pretty much contained within the game's actual name) when it comes to Billy Eichner's 'Celebrity Child or Kentucky Derby Winner?' The 'Billy on the Street' host will name a particular name, and then you need to guess if it belongs to the child of a celebrity or a race-winning pony. Along the way, the loud-mouthed host will use his trademark screaming ability to drive things right along, and if you can get through the tricky trivia and the ear-splitting growl, you can win a dollar for each correct answer.
We'd known that 'SNL' would need some additional fine-tuning after shedding some of the dead weight of season 39, but where writer Colin Jost had replaced "Weekend Update"s departed Seth Meyers alongside Cecily Strong, an unexpected shakeup has emerged. Strong will step down from the Update desk, remaining an 'SNL' regular, while 'Daily Show' correspondent and 'SNL' writer Michael Che will become Jost's new co-anchor.
Were you unsatisfied with the likes of 'Arrow,' 'The Flash,' 'Gotham,' 'Constantine' and potentially 'Supergirl' solidifying DC's grip on live-action TV superheroes? Good news! According to a new report, DC and Warner Bros. have pitched a 'Titans' TV series (yes, those Titans), which as we speak nears a pilot order at TNT. Yes, TNT.
