It’s a wonder Showtime’s Happyish (previously Trending Down) made it through a first season at all, following the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman and subsequent retooling with Steve Coogan in the lead, but now that persistence seems to have worn off. Showtime has officially canceled Happyish, and we’re only sort of sad-ish about it.

‘She’s Funny That Way’ Trailer: Owen Wilson Screwballs With Imogen Poots

My favorite line in this trailer for ‘She’s Funny That Way,’ the new film by Peter Bogdanovich (and his first in eight years), is “This is all very confusing.” Because it is! It took me two viewings to start to pin it all down. So Owen Wilson plays a theater director, who hires a prostitute (Imogen Poots). She only, uh, “escorts” to pay the bills while she tries to make it as an actress, and then she’s hired to star in Wilson’s new play. And then Will Forte (who, according to Wikipedia, is the play’s writer) falls for Poots, and then Kathryn Hahn is involved as well (Wikipedia, which is never wrong, says she plays Wilson’s wife). So everyone is either working with or sleeping with everyone else. Shenanigans!

'Bad Words' Review

“I’m not that good at a lot of stuff, especially thinking things through.”
Nope, Guy Trilby (Jason Bateman) really isn’t so good at thinking things through, but the bad choices that pepper Bateman’s directorial debut, ‘Bad Words,’ go so far beyond misplaced common sense that Guy’s early and wholly understated confession about his decision-making style is perhaps the last actually relatable bit of the entire film. A black comedy with a black heart, Bateman’s ‘Bad Words’ knowingly attempts to push the envelope of unlikability, littering the big screen with pintsized victims and one heck of a mangled word-centric competition. Often funny by virtue of its shock value and Guy’s clever wordsmithery, ‘Bad Words’ still doesn’t feel quite so great going down, but it at least announces Bateman’s directorial sensibilities loud and clear, and there’s plenty here to mine for future projects.

While HBO will be losing a number of major series in the coming year, Showtime's own loss of 'Dexter' and the impending 'Californication' has necessitated some new blood of its own. Enter Philip Seymour Hoffman's new dark dramedy, 'Happyish,' and 'Fringe' star Joshua Jackon's steamy new drama, 'The Affair,' both picked up to series for the near future!

NBC's 'The Office' may have closed its doors for good (at least in America), but that hasn't stopped us from envisioning what the beloved NBC comedy might have been like on a different path. Among some of the early auditions from the series we've heard about, new footage of such comedy icons as Seth Rogen, Kathryn Hahn and even 'Breaking Bad' star Bob Odenkirk trying out for the show have emerged, painting a very different portrait of Dunder-Mifflin life.

Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman may have a few early odd TV credits to his name, but the soon-to-be 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' star is about to make the small screen a full-time business. Hoffman has joined 'Anchorman' star Kathryn Hahn for Showtime's new dramedy pilot 'Trending Down,' but will the new project make it to series?

Now that 'Parks and Recreation' has officially debuted its fifth season with the elegantly sweet "Ms. Knope Goes to Washington," we can say that some fans might have noticed a little something off with the premiere. While we may have seen some all-star guests in Leslie Knope's trip through Washington DC, curiously absent was Kathryn Hahn's character Jennifer Barkley, who was the one to bring Ben to the Capitol in the first place. So, will she be back for the coming season?
