This past weekend’s ‘SNL’ installment under ‘The Hunger Games’ star Woody Harrelson took home the gold for best episode of the 40th anniversary season to date, but will ‘Annie’ star Cameron Diaz seize the throne for herself? Find out, as Diaz lays claim to New York City and details her sordid past with Bobby Moynihan in the first promos of this weekend’s latest ‘SNL’!
Of all the myriad details leaked from ‘Game of Thrones‘ season 5, perhaps the most simultaneously surprising and expected is that of Charles Dance’s return to the role of Tywin Lannister. And while the show’s introduction of flashbacks might craft any number of returns for the fallen Lannister patriarch, Dance himself has confirmed details of the character’s reappearance.
It’s never good to try to predict things when it comes to serialized television shows. And it’s an especially bad idea when those predictions involve something as slippery as time travel. But that’s where we are a scant six episodes into ‘The Flash,’ as tonight’s epilogue all but confirms what most of us have been thinking all along. This show is many things, but “subtle” isn’t exactly one of those.
Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ assembles its eighth season 2 installment in “The Things We Bury,” as Coulson dips back into ‘Agent Carter‘ (Hayley Aywell)’s past for clues to beating Hydra in the race to uncover an ancient secret, while Ward kidnaps his senator brother Christian (Tim DeKay) for a violent trip down memory lane.
‘Sons of Anarchy’ season 7 roars out its 11th episode of the final year, “Suits of Woe,” as Jax learns the truth about Gemma’s role in Tara’s murder, while Juice takes care of club business in prison.
Earlier today saw FOX stealing a bit of British thunder with its own adaptation of ‘Luther’ but it seems FX intends to mine far deeper in bringing the A-list Tom Hardy to the small screen. The cable network has officially picked up the rights to air Hardy’s forthcoming period drama collaboration with Ridley Scott and ‘Locke’’s Steven Knight, diamond adventurer drama ‘Taboo.’
'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon is, perhaps, not quite ready to take to the skies in service to the mythos and magic of a Peter Pan tale, but when star Allison Williams asks him to do it, he kind of can't say no. After all, Williams is about to go high-flying on live television for an all-new 'Peter Pan,' the least Fallon can do is try it for a bit within the safety of his own studio.
Well, if FOX’s American remake of ‘Broadchurch’ didn’t send mobs of flaming pitchforks to the ‘Gracepoint’ set, we suppose this was bound to happen. Idris Elba’s revered detective drama ‘Luther’ looks to get its own FOX remake as well, with series creator Neil Cross on board to write and Elba in line to produce.
Jimmy Fallon’s supposedly good time games are becoming increasingly more complicated, threading in generally fun ideas (“let’s tell a story together!”) with weird constraints (“put you can only use three words!”) with one final, seemingly impossible demand (“and then you have to make me say this mystery word!”). Fortunately for the ‘Tonight Show’ host, he picked a game (tee hee) partner for his first crack at “Three-Word Stories.”
Monday night’s episode of ‘Gotham,’ ‘Harvey Dent,’ as advertised, introduced us to a new assistant DA named Harvey Dent. At this point, at least Harvey Dent isn’t a little kid. ‘Gotham’ is slowly improving, but it’s still caught in that awkward space between being a serious drama and a campy farce.
