HBO surprised the TV world yesterday with the announcement of a standalone streaming option for the reclusive network, but it isn't the only TV giant looking to secure a streaming future. CBS has announced (and launched) its own pay-service to give non-cable users access to their library of content, calling the new innovation "CBS Access."
The fall 2014 TV season has been dominated by the arrival of superhero series like 'Gotham,' 'The Flash' and more, and CBS is about to have a 'Super' new addition to the team. Following its initial announcement, the 'Supergirl' TV series has officially landed at CBS with a full series commitment, focusing on the tale of Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin.
Much as we might have liked 'Masters of Sex' star Lizzy Caplan to take the gold, 'The Good Wife' star Julianna Margulies tonight takes home the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series award at the 2014 Emmy Awards for her role as Alicia Florrick.
Well, no major changing of the guard here, as actor Jim Parsons tonight takes home the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series award at the 2014 Emmy Awards for his role as brilliant 'Big Bang Theory' egghead Sheldon Cooper.
Though the turmoil of late night turnover in 2014 has passed, 'The Late Late Show' host Craig Ferguson had been the last of the impending empty seats, following the announcement of his departure. Now, a new report claims that not only will CBS continue with 'The Late Late Show,' but with 'Into the Woods' star James Corden filling Ferguson's spot as host.
Love it or hate it, there's no denying that CBS' 'The Big Bang Theory' has become one of the more successful sitcoms in recent memory, achieving a 'Friends' and 'Seinfeld'-like popularity that assures its stars will band together for big paydays in the future. And while recent contract negotiations with Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki held up production on season 8, reports suggest the trio have succeeded in negotiating a major raise. Get that sitcom money, nerds!
We were admittedly uncertain what to think when 'How I Met Your Mother' spinoff 'How I Met Your Dad' unexpectedly imploded at the CBS upfronts, as what seemed like a shoe-in for pickup was rejected by the network, and was ultimately let go. Now, a new report suggests that 'HIMYM' creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas will redevelop the spinoff for another season, but will series lead Greta Gerwig or the cast return?
Now that 'How I Met Your Mother' spinoff 'How I Met Your Dad' seems to have fallen through, the CBS lineup looks a little bereft of anything we might normally follow. And now with CBS' acquisition of Thursday Night Football, the full fall 2014 schedule looks a little jumbled with 'The Big Bang Theory' filling in for 'HIMYM' Mondays, while 'Elementary' and others move to October to accommodate football.
Among the last, but certainly not least, the eye network CBS has officially gotten in on the Upfront 2014 game by releasing their schedule for the fall, and full trailers for the newest series. Few major surprises (minus that 'How I Met Your Dad' pass), but take a look at the future of CBS with new trailers for Halle Berry's 'Extant,' sporting family sitcom 'The McCarthys' and more!
The world of late-night talk shows seems more or less to have settled, now that Stephen Colbert will take the 'Late Show' from David Letterman and slotted 'Daily Show' alum Larry Wilmore to replace him in the 'Colbert Report' timeslot, but was Colbert really the network's first choice? 'How I Met Your Mother' alum Neil Patrick Harris says otherwise, claiming CBS first attempted to gauge his interest in taking over for Letterman.
