Whether or not you thought Bradley Cooper’s 2011 ‘Limitless’ needed a TV reboot of the 100% brain-power hero solving cases for the FBI, CBS certainly seems committed to making it work. Director Neil Burger has exited the remake project for scheduling purposes, surprisingly leaving ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ helmer Marc Webb in his place.

CBS’ forthcoming ‘Supergirl’ series has kept right on casting beyond its titular heroine, but as with any good DC series, villains will come out of the woodwork, some more literally than others. A new report suggests that DC’s “Lumberjack” will be the first big bad Kara Zor-El faces in following Superman’s bootsteps, but a far more sinister villain may be pulling the strings.
The prospect of a ‘Limitless’ TV series to follow Bradley Cooper’s 2011 “10% of your brain” thriller has been floating around for a few years now, but CBS may be the one to finally make it happen. The ‘Limitless’ follow-up has officially been given a pilot order, along with new details on how the series would tie in with the original film.
The moment CBS found their ‘Supergirl’ in ‘Glee’ star Melissa Benoist, we knew the DC drama would cast faster than a speeding bullet. Enter our new Jimmy Olsen for the super-series, courtesy of ‘True Blood’ and ‘Necessary Roughness’ star Mehcad Brooks!
Far be it for us to ever question our TV overlords and the small-screen movie reboot trend, but at least some franchises feel fair game for a fresh take. Cue loudmouth Chris Tucker wailing, as ‘Rush Hour’ will move forward with an official pilot order at CBS, written under ‘Scrubs’ and ‘Cougar Town’ creator Bill Lawrence.
CBS ‘Supergirl’ recently revealed a more procedural format that had many fans worried about the series, but the casting of Kara Zor-El should leave all positively ‘Glee’-ful. Melissa Benoist will don a cape and tights for the title role in CBS’ ‘Supergirl’ series, chronicling the adventures of Superman’s cousin.
CBS forthcoming ‘Supergirl’ series has yet to cast a leading lady, or even necessarily confirm a formal series order, but that hasn’t stopped development on the DC drama from revealing new details. Get early scoop on the costume and characterization of our new Kara Zor-El, and find out whether or not there’s a ‘Supergirl’-’Arrow’-’Flash’ crossover in our future!
‘The Colbert Report’ has already said its goodbyes, while David Letterman will hang onto the ‘Late Show’ until May, so when does Stephen Colbert finally take the desk, and begin our new era of ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert?’ Find out, as CBS has released the official start date, and teased some specials from Letterman himself!
It’s been some time since the proposed CBS ‘Supergirl’ TV series delivered any updates as to its progress, and with 2015 off and running, another new name has hit the skies to fill the boots of Superman’s cousin Kara Zor-El. When last we heard, ‘The Vampire Diaries’ star Claire Holt was in contention for the role, but a new rumor suggests UK actress Gemma Atkinson may be our new ‘Supergirl.’
We’ve mostly stayed away from any ‘Two and a Half Men’ hubbub since Charlie Sheen’s crazy days settled down, and Angus T. Jones similarly talked himself out of a job, but with the CBS comedy’s series finale firmly set for February 19, we’re at least curious if Charlie Sheen can negotiate a return appearance. Judging by Ashton Kutcher’s coy performance in a recent ‘Ellen’ interview, that looks to be the case.
