Never fear, ‘30 Rock‘ fans, for Tina Fey certainly won’t be out of work for long when the show begins its final season this fall on NBC. Instead, Fey will take her signature sensibilities to ‘The Simpsons,’ guesting in the already-crowed 24th season of the long-running series. But will ‘SNL‘s former funny-lady play herself a la Justin Bieber, or an original character? And blerg, when will we see her appearance?
There’s no more need to talk nonsense about Bob Loblaw, Barry Zuckerkorn is back! Yet more recurring players of the first three seasons have signed on for Netflix’s forthcoming revival of ‘Arrested Development‘ season 4, as Henry Winkler and Scott Baio have signed on to reprise their roles as Bluth family attorney(s) Barry Zuckerkorn and Bob Loblaw. When last we saw the characters however, Michael Bluth had dismissed Barry’s services for Bob, so what nonsense could have befallen Bob Loblaw?
Could Mork be headed back to Earth? It seems Robin Williams’ bite from the TV acting bug might have been bigger than his recent ‘Louie‘ and ‘Wilfred‘ appearances, as the legendary funnyman may have his eye on a new gig at CBS. But what could have lured Williams back to a regular role after over 30 years off the tube, and why does the project have ‘Mad Men‘s Don Draper feeling a shiver up his spine?
Sure, we’re all a little tepid at the prospect of a new season of ‘Saturday Night Live‘ that lacks Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig, Abby Elliott, and potentially even Jason Sudeikis as well, but the show will always go on, no? Seth MacFarlane has been announced to host the premiere of the long-running sketch comedy’s thirty-eighth season, but who will join him on the stage? And what other stars will fall from the sky to deliver a premium rush in the ensuing weeks?
From just about the minute people heard that NBC was developing an adult musical series about Broadway show-business, ‘Glee‘ comparisons and contrasts flew left and right. Now that ‘Smash‘ has come and establish itself as a separate entity, will ‘Fame‘ face the same stigma upon returning to TV? Will ‘Fame’ face greater scrutiny now that ‘Glee’ is headed to New York, or will people remember which came first? Who’s behind the new series?
Ever since the departure of Steve Carell from ‘The Office,’ rumors have swirled that the series would either reboot, or close its doors entirely, particularly after the show struggled to find its footing absent its headlining star in season 8. Stars departed, a spin-off geared up, and now the verdict has officially arrived that ‘The Office’ season 9 will indeed be the show’s last. But, will any major characters return? And what’s the big twist?
Well that certainly didn’t take very long, but then again the last thing you want to do is be shaky around Michael J. Fox. Horribly bad taste aside, Michael J. Fox fans can rest easy knowing that the former ‘Family Ties’ star will officially return to TV, as NBC outbid the other major networks to land the actor’s upcoming family comedy project. Still, it took a pretty penny on the part of the peacock to lock down the Fox, so what about the offer lured him back to NBC?
Never fear, fans of ‘The Big Bang Theory‘ anxiously awaiting the show’s sixth season. A little applied physics never hurt anybody, at least seriously enough to delay taping. Well, actually applied physics could kill any number of people based on its principles alone, but not today! Despite a (reportedly) gruesome car crash, actress Mayim Bialik will live to hold Sheldon Cooper’s hand once more. But did she leave a piece of herself behind?
Haven’t you ever been groggily watching ‘The Price is Right’ one morning, only to find yourself thinking, “boy, that reasonably priced set of crystal stemware would seem more obtainable if it were presented by a handsome chap, rather than this distractingly attractive gal?” Word for word, you say? Well, good news everyone! ‘The Price is Right’ is about to become equal opportunity, and you could be the next one to come on down!
Sad news to report today, as former ‘Welcome Back, Kotter’ star and noted acting teacher Ron Palillo died this morning of a heart attack, at the age of 63. Palillo was reportedly found by his lifelong partner Joseph Gramm early this morning in their Beach Gardens home, before being taken to the hospital and pronounced dead. The news was reported by one of Palillo’s close personal friends.
