Fall TV: Who’s safe? Who’s on the chopping block?

Bad Judge

We're about two months into the new fall TV season, which means we now have a representative enough sample to start calling who will be seeing a second season and who will be getting the boot. So far, the consensus is that America loves shows about superheroes and take-no-sh!t Viola Davis, and really couldn't care less about zeitgeisty shows about #trending or remakes that never needed to be remade.

‘Archer’ will be dropping the ISIS name from the show

Archer

You know what sucks? Using a name on your show for five years, to the point where it becomes integral to the narrative, only to have real world events come in and completely change the connotations of said name. Which is vaguely what happened to FX's Archer after ISIS popped up over the past year and became the worst thing since Ebola and pumpkin spice lattes. Anyway, a contingency plan has been put in place to ensure that the show quickly and MORE

Are you saying Boo or Boo-urns? A review of ‘The Simpsons Guy’

The Simpsons Guy

Deep down, we all knew that a Simpsons-Family Guy crossover was inevitable. Despite the shows' potshots at one another (culminating in a rape / murder joke from Family Guy that pushed me off the show for good, except for when I need background noise) the idea of putting the two together was too much of a cashgrab to deny. And so, a few weeks ago, it came to be ... the Griffins went to Springfield and met the Simpsons during The Simpsons Guy. MORE

Footage (+ opening credits) from ‘AHS: Freak Show’

American Horror Story: Freak Show

If the changing leaves and the drop in temperature haven't clued you in already, it's fall. Seriously, can you believe it's October already? Jeez, inexorable march of time, way to suck the fun out of things. The upside here is the premiere of FX's American Horror Story: Freak Show is less than a week away (October 8th), so here's a look at footage from the show. A few errant thoughts as I watched this ... That bored dandy boy with the MORE

‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ … first extended trailer!

American Horror Story: Freak Show / Sarah Paulson

After a handful of teasers, it looks like American Horror Story: Freak Show (premiering on FX on October 8th) is going for the big reveal with its characters! The first extended trailer, called "Voyeur," was released yesterday, and it features the members of the freak show, including two-headed Sarah Paulson, three-boobed Angela Bassett, bearded Kathy Bates, strong Michael Chiklis, horny Evan Peters, and German Jessica Lange. We also have MORE

‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ has some new teasers!

American Horror Story: Freakshow

Now that American Horror Story: Freak Show (premiering October 8th on FX) is unleashing their teasers for real this time (along with the just released official character poster posted above), it's time for everyone's favorite game ... Baseless Fan Speculation! The game that accomplishes nothing and just manages to irritate everyone! So, let's see the two new teasers, shall we? All right, so now we have snake man, three-legged acrobat MORE

‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ has a (REAL) teaser!

American Horror Story: Freakshow

After being duped by that stupid fake (but admittedly pretty well made) teaser earlier this summer, I finally have an actual teaser for FX's American Horror Story: Freakshow (premiering October 8th)! Which raises many questions: Why does this chicken want me to go to the freakshow? Does this chicken own stock in FX? Wouldn't she taste delicious deep fried and seasoned with a special blend of eleven secret herbs and spices? Either way, I'll be MORE

Netflix hints at a fifth season of ‘Arrested Development’

Arrested Development

Remember last year, when Netflix bestowed upon us mere mortals a fourth season of Arrested Development IN ITS ENTIRETY? And then half the web complained about a freebie, while the other half understood that cast scheduling meant a different narrative frame, and that the season was meant to be watched as a whole rather than separates, allowing each individual story to further colour and nuance the others as they interconnected? Well, they might MORE

Revealed: Who’s Who on ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’

American Horror Story: Coven

I think there's still like three months until FX's American Horror Story: Freakshow premieres, and while the web desperately clings to fake season four trailers to tide us over (whoops ... fell for it!), here's the character / cast list that leaked online. The unofficial who's who, via Out magazine ... Jessica Lange is Elsa Mars Emma Roberts is Maggie Sarah Paulson is the dual role of Siamese twins Bette and Dot (a vision to MORE

First Look: American Horror Story: Freak Show

American Horror Story: Coven

UPDATE: Turns out this teaser is actually fake … but I must say it's quite well done! I'm pretty sure we won't be seeing FX's American Horror Story: Freakshow for another few months or so, but who cares?! Here's the first teaser (called 'Fallen Angel' for the new season, which means it's time for RAMPANT SPECULATION BASED OFF OF A SHORT CLIP WHICH HISTORICALLY ISN'T ACTUALLY INDICATIVE OF ANYTHING ACTUALLY ON THE SHOW! So I'm guessing MORE

Get ready for the final season of ‘True Blood’

True Blood

We're a month away from the premiere of the seventh and final season of True Blood (kicking off June 22nd on HBO), which is great because there's literally nothing on in the summer and we need more naked Joe Manganiello on TV. Anyway, here's the first real look at the new season, and by the looks of it, they're clearing house on the cast. I mean, they do have a hell of an ensemble and a pretty clear deadline, so I guess it makes sense that it's MORE

‘Two and a Half Men’ to end with season 12

Two and a Half Men

Somewhere out there, Charlie Sheen just did a line of Tiger Blood before ejaculating an F-16. Why? Because Two and a Half Men, every aspiring comedian's whipping boy, is coming to an end, after twelve whole seasons of playing in the background at your parents house when you go home for Thanksgiving. Via THR ... "Chuck Lorre is creating a season-long event. We did very well last year with announcing final season of How I Met Your Mother here, MORE

‘Revenge’ is Finally Served: Season Finale Recap

Revenge

Last night, ABC wrapped up the (significantly improved) third season of Revenge with a jaw-dropping finale that was packed with game-changing revelations, a generous amount of bloodshed, the father of all twists, and at long last, Emily’s ultimate revenge against the evil Graysons. Here’s what you need to know about the Revenge finale (obviously, this list contains spoilers, so don’t continue reading if you care about that sort of MORE

NBC is ditching Community (and Parks and Recreation)

Community

A few years ago, NBC had the best Thursday night line-up, thanks to the combined power of 30 Rock, Community, Parks and Recreation, and The Office. Except since then, 30 Rock and The Office have come to a close, but at least they still have Community and Parks, right? Oh what's that? They just canceled Community? Welp. I'm just going to curl up in the corner now. If it sounds like I'm crying, I'm not. I'm just trying to squeeze excess water out MORE
