NBC's 'Constantine' hasn't exactly lit the world on fire since its October debut, at least in the manner its DC compatriots have, but the network isn't quite giving up on its demon detective drama just yet. NBC has decided to halt production on the series after 13 episodes, but may yet opt for a second season, should fans continue to reflect interest in the series.

NBC’s ‘Parks and Recreation’ put some literal and figurative madness into its sixth season finale, tossing a Jon Hamm cameo into the brisk final sequence that saw the Pawnee gang jumping through time to 2017.

The ongoing firestorm against Bill Cosby has only swelled in recent weeks, as more and more allegations of rape emerge against the once-revered comedian, so it wasn’t any surprise that Netflix would opt to discard the November 28 release of a new Cosby standup special.

The idea of TV shows rebooting old movies has become old hat by now, but the latest may bring with it a surprising revelation. NBC will look to adapt 2000 Jim Caviezel-Dennis Quaid time-travel detective drama 'Frequency' as a new TV series, as developed by 'Supernatural' showrunner Jeremy Carver, but what might it mean for the longrunning CW series?

The mere mention of 'A Few Good Men' instantaneously elicits everyone's "you can't handle the truth" impression, but few remember that writer Aaron Sorkin original staged the show on Broadway before the famous Tom Cruise-Jack Nicholson film.
