More and more cord-cutting seems to prove a viable option, especially now that HBO has made the leap to offer its own independent streaming-service, beginning with Apple this spring.

We’ve seen The Simpsons take on Game of Thrones before, but the May 3 outing of Season 26 really will prove dark and full of terrors. Carice van Houten, the Red Priestess Melisandre herself, will give voice to the long-running animated series, and the actress’ very name may give away her role.
It’s another sad day for The Simpsons and the world at large, as series executive producer Al Jean confirmed news that co-creator Sam Simon passed away on Sunday, at the age of 59, in Los Angeles. The Emmy-winning Simon had also written for such TV legends as Taxi and Cheers, battling a cancer diagnosis since 2012.
Just as FOX’s Gotham begins to lose a major character with no place in DC comics (or really even the show anymore), a Fox-y new player steps in.

Whatever you make of FOX Bat-prequel Gotham, few would argue that series star Jada Pinkett Smith commits to her role as original gangster Fish Mooney. That commitment may have run out, however, as Smith doesn’t think she’ll return for Season 2 this fall.
The success of FOX’s 24: Live Another Day event series got the ball rolling on a number of other ideas, from The X-Files to Enourmous, but their latest short-burn effort is even more expendable. Sylvester Stallone is reportedly developing a limited series TV rendition of The Expendables, uniting some of TV’s biggest stars for a new action-drama.
Much of FOX’s Minority Report sequel series’ casting has lacked headline appeal, but the latest should feel familiar for the network. That ‘70s Show star Wilmer Valderrama has joined FOX’s followup to the 2002 Steven Spielberg film, but what does the actor have to do with the original movie?
FOX’s Gotham detects its 18th installment in “Everyone Has a Cobblepot,” as Gordon re-teams with Harvey Dent (Nicholas D'Agosto) to investigate police corruption, while Fish Mooney locks wits with the deadly Dr. Dulmacher (Colm Feore), and Bruce deals with the aftermath of Alfred's shooting.
DC’s foothold in the TV game got exponentially bigger with the potential for yet another Arrow spinoff for The CW, but FOX too is making strides toward its comic future. Following the pilot greenlight of Neil Gaiman Sandman spinoff Lucifer, FOX has appointed Rush star Tom Ellis as our new Prince of Darkness.
FOX's Will Forte-led 'The Last Man on Earth' brings the apocalypse anew this Sunday, but is Lord and MIller's latest a comedy triumph or desolate wasteland? We give you an early insight with our spoiler-free review!
