It’s been kind of a slow day for TV news, what with most of the major Television Critics Association press tour panels having taken place, but in some cases a slow day is just the calm before the storm. That’s why we’re equally delighted, bewildered and horrified to announce that ‘The Brady Bunch’ will be gracing our TV screens once more in the near future, with a rebooted cast. Also, Vince Vaughn is behind it. Yeah, it’s that kind of day.
Well, there but for the grace of GOB go they. The 2012 Emmy nominations are out, and with them the usual squabbling over under-appreciated gems and the series that the academy seems to vomit awards upon without any inking of whether or not they deserve it. Of course, some of the nominations are well deserved, and others pleasantly surprising, so who’s causing the biggest stir among TV viewers this year?
The internet has been abuzz that ‘Saturday Night Live‘ might be losing yet another cast member / writer, at least in a regular capacity, as rumors floated that ‘Weekend Update’ vet Seth Meyers might be ready to take the big job with Kelly Ripa after Regis Philbin’s retirement. Meyers has been pretty mum up until now, filling in for Regis this past week, but now the ‘SNL’ star is giving his definitive answer.
You know, it’s been a good long while sinec we’ve seen Jerry Seinfeld on TV in anything worthwhile (yes, we absolutely refuse to count ‘The Marriage Ref’). We know he’ll be appearing later this season in an intriguing extended arc on FX’s comedy gem ‘Louie?’ but what’s the ‘Seinfeld’ comedian’s new web series all about? The first teaser may or may not provide the answer…
In spite of the bazillions of dollars it’s already earned, ‘The Avengers‘ hasn’t been in theaters all that long, yet naturally every star and movie executive wants a piece of the sequel. Not only that, but most every source indicates that the superhero roster would likely expand for the follow-up, leaving a wealth of potential characters for Hollywood, particularly women to nab. So which TV star wants to smash her way onto the big screen next time around?
As just about everyone in the world knows by now, The Hulk completely stole the show in Marvel’s ‘The Avengers‘ these past few weeks. For a while Disney (through ABC) and visionary director Guillermo del Toro had talked about the possibility of bringing the green brute back to TV screens in the tradition of the classic Lou Ferrigno / Bill Bixby take, but with ABC’s fall schedule revealed, what does it mean for our dream of seeing ‘The Hulk’ on TV?
Please, make it stop. Chevy Chase, you break our hearts whenever you open your mouth about ‘Community.’ That’s right, it seems as though even weeks after the fervor of ‘Community’ star and comedy legend Chevy’ Chase’s feud with series creator Dan Harmon seems to have died down, the silver-haired comedian is at it again with any reporter who asks.
Boy, that Vince Vaughn sure has his plate full these days, and we’re not talking about craft services (okay, probably that too.) Between re-teaming with ‘Wedding Crashers’ star Owen Wilson for ‘The Internship,’ potentially taking on ‘The Rockford Files,’ and developing an FX dominatrix drama, just how will he manage to cram in a new ABC sitcom with Tony Danza? And which of them will be the boss?
It’s hard to think that an entire generation of young folk are more intimately familiar with the ‘Star Trek‘ of J.J. Abrams‘ reboot franchise, given the decades worth of 5+ TV series, and 10 resulting films, but the idea of bring ‘Star Trek’ back to TV is hardly a new one. So what are the odds of seeing that materialize in the near future?
