Take a look at NBC’s ‘Peter Pan LIVE!’

Peter Pan Live

Last year's live performance of The Sound of Music (with Carrie Underwood) may not have been everyone's cup of soup, but I personally liked it a lot. I never actually saw the original or the Broadway version, so I didn't come into it with any expectations, but more than anything, I appreciated the pure spectacle of it. It's not often we get to see live specials on TV anymore, so the fact that they went all out for a show is something to be MORE

The new ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ cast has been announced …

The Celebrity Apprentice

And actually, it just occurred to me–why do they still call it The Celebrity Apprentice? At this point, they've stopped making the actual Apprentice, so the celebrity version is now the default. I don't know, that seems weird to me for some reason. Anyway, here's the just announced cast list for the new season of The Celebrity Apprentice–let's find out who's going to be selling pizzas in NYC this time ... Kate Gosselin - Had 8 kids, MORE

Amy Poehler & Tina Fey: Retiring from Cohosting Golden Globes

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have been handling Golden Globes cohosting duties for the past couple years now for two very good reasons: First, Neil Patrick Harris can only handle so many hosting gigs, and second, because they're hysterically funny and awesome and they single-handedly brought in the highest numbers in the show's history. So that's pretty good. Anyway, in an interview promoting her new book, Amy sat down and said that this would be MORE

Neil Patrick Harris is getting his own NBC variety show

Neil Patrick Harris

As was mentioned yesterday in our fall TV post, NBC has climbed up the rankings and is now fighting it out with ABC for the #2 spot among the major networks. And according to Vulture, they might be setting themselves up for the edge now by giving Neil Patrick Harris, the most Entertainer-with-a-capital-E entertainer currently working, his own variety show on the network ... NBC and ITV execs have confirmed the Harris news. Peacock 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

It’s the ‘Community’ season five promo!

Community

Here's the trailer for the fifth season of Community, which plays pretty heavily on that whole "season four was a rancid pile of yak turds" thing which ... look, I get that fans were upset that Dan Harmon wasn't around to guide the show, but I think everyone involved at least tried. It wasn't the best season, but it could have been worse. Anyway, season five (premiering Thursday, January 2nd) sounds like it's going to be a rebuilding time for the MORE

The hills are alive with the sound of SHADE

Carrie Underwood

Last night, NBC aired a live version of The Sound of Music, which I sat through because (A) I've never seen the movie or the musical before, and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, and (B) I had to write a musical opening sketch, and I figured it would inspire me. Turns out, writing music while listening to other music is damn near impossible. But I digress. I thought they did a decent enough job, and everyone was at least putting their MORE

Fall television’s best & worst new comedies

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

So we are roughly a month into the new TV calendar year and here's a run down of what I’m thinking so far. In general, there has been more shows with promise than in past years, but on the flipside some of the beloved returning shows are starting to show their cracks. On the new comedy show category, here is my breakdown of the good, bad and ugly, and remember, I can watch some really bad TV. BEST NEW COMEDIES Brooklyn Nine-Nine (FOX, MORE

First Look: Carrie Underwood in ‘The Sound of Music’

Carrie Underwood | The Sound of Music

NBC's live production of The Sound of Music is set to debut December 5th, and a recently-released promotional poster shows star Carrie Underwood looking every bit the part of Maria von Trapp! Although the 1965 film adaptation starring Julie Andrews is a certifiable classic, I have a feeling NBC won't disappoint. Underwood certainly looks the part, and her vocal talent is undeniable. Although this is her first major acting gig, I expect to be MORE

Tina Fey, Miley Cyrus and Bruce Willis will host ‘SNL’

Tina Fey

In case the rapidly yellowing leaves, the number of kids in school, or the fact that everything now tastes like pumpkin hasn't tipped you off yet, it's almost fall, and you know what that means: season premieres for all of your favorite television shows! Weeee! Which of course means a brand-new season of Saturday Night Live, which according to Variety, will start off with one of the best hosts they ever had returning followed by a sharp quality MORE

Gag Reel: ‘Parks and Recreation’ season five!

Parks and Recreation

It's that time again! Time for Parks and Recreation's annual gag reel, highlighting all the best breaks from season five. We're just going to post a couple of them (via Uproxx) but you can go find the rest of them on Parks and Recreation's season five DVD which is out now, and make sure to catch the season premiere of season six on September 26th on NBC! MORE

Vampire Bill is going to star in ‘The Sound of Music’

Stephen Moyer

If the idea of Ben Affleck starring as Batman is enough to blow your gawddamn mind, prepare to have it DOUBLE BLOWN. True Blood's Stephen Moyer is set to star in NBC's upcoming live production (taking place on December 5th) of Rodgers & Hammerstein's classical musical The Sound of Music, alongside Carrie Underwood. Because when you think lavish Broadway musicals, you think of the undead guy who ripped Arliss Howard's head off while high on fairy MORE

A Sampling of New TV Shows Coming this Fall!

Hostages

As a TV fan, every year come September it’s like Christmas. All the new shows start and returning shows come by to grace the small screen. Oh, it’s so exciting, the countdown is officially on. Here is a list of ten new shows that have some promise, and others that seem like revamps of shows that already exist. Almost Human (FOX / Premiere: November 4th) Shot in the future, it’s the same old cop show. A cop that lost his leg returns to MORE

Dan Harmon might be coming back to ‘Community’

Dan Harmon

The other day I was chatting with a friend who, like me, totally loves Community. Well, sorta. While he liked the first three seasons, he's apparently not a fan of the fourth. At one point, I remembered that he didn't actually have cable, to which he replied that he just watches them all online. So ... yeah. I'm just saying, if you pirate a show for free, you don't really get to complain about the quality that you're not paying for. But no MORE
