Arsenio Hall was supposed to spend the week of June 2 in New York City, touting the upcoming second season of his late-night talk show on The View, Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show and Late Show with David Letterman. Instead, he was in Los Angeles, packing up boxes, bidding adieu to his staff and sharing via social media his disappointment over his show's cancellation. "I dreamed that they...

The Night Shift
NBC's The Night Shift could be the start of a new summer franchise for the Peacock network. The show is off to a decent start, giving NBC its best summer drama premiere ratings in five years and holding up well in week two.
The show takes a look at the staff working the late hours at an underfunded San Antonio hospital, and stars Eoin Macken as an Afghanistan war veteran, as ...
Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki
Bazinga! The Big Bang Theory narrowly beat out NCIS to be named this past season's most-watched series in all of television. With final season averages that include "live plus 7" time-shifted viewing data now available, Bang averaged 23.1 million viewers for the season ending May 24, while NCIS averaged 22.4 million.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Nickelodeon's animated hit Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is back this weekend with an all-new episode featuring the return of Tiger Claw.
In "The Wrath of Tiger Claw," which airs Sunday, June 8, at 11 a.m./10c, the villain is back and determined to destroy the Turtles at any cost.
With executive producers Dan Harmon and Chris McKenna back at the helm, critics and fans agreed that Community regained its mojo this past season. Considering the major arc for star Joel McHale, big guest turns by stars like Jonathan Banks and John Oliver, and an emotional farewell to star Donald Glover, it's reasonable to expect the show to be an Emmy contender in several key comedy categories, including Outstanding Writing.
There's just one pesky problem...
Jessica McKenna, Steve Carell
Fans of NBC's The Office may remember how Steve Carell's character, Michael Scott, was enamored by improv sketch comedy. He'd probably also be a fan of Fox's Riot, a new improv show from Carell's production company, Carousel Television. Based on a French format, Riot requires its seven featured players and guest stars to play in song, dance and sketch challenges — frequently on a set that has been titled at a 22-degree angle.
As Gravity Falls fans await the second season adventures of Grunkle Stan, Dipper and Mabel Pines, Disney XD plans to tide them over with two new shorts.
Disney XD will air the Gravity Falls short "Mabel's Scrapbook: Heist Movie" on Monday, June 2, at 6:59/5:59c; an hour later, it will run "Mabel's Scrapbook: Petting Zoo" at 7:59/6:59c.
Disney renewed the hit animated series, created by young animator Alex Hirsch, for a second season last year. Season 1 premiered on Disney Channel, but the network decided to move Gravity Falls and another cartoon, Wander Over Yonder, to Disney XD this year. (No return date has been announced yet for Gravity Falls.) Both shows feature a slightly older, edgier tone that likely fits better with the pre-teen Disney XD crowd.
Gravity Falls — a mix of Twin Peaks, The X-Files, Lost and the animated feature Monster House, wrapped in a comedic, irreverent bow — features the voices of Hirsch, Jason Ritter, Kristen Schaal and Linda Cardellini. Hirsch, Ritter and Schaal are set to participate in a live reading and Q&A session with fans at the Los Angeles Film Festival on Saturday, June 14.
There's not a lot of job security when you're running a network, but Kevin Reilly managed to spend the last decade overseeing two entertainment divisions: First NBC, then Fox. That streak comes to a close next month, as he exits his post as Fox Entertainment chairman.
In a brief Q&A with TV Guide Magazine on Thursday after announcing his exit, Reilly said he...
Parker Young, Geoff Stults
May can be the harshest month for TV fans, as the networks make their annual series orders and renewals for fall. One show that didn't make the cut: Fox's Enlisted. Fox chief operating officer Joe Earley admits to TV Guide Magazine that the network didn't do Enlisted any favors. The show was originally announced for fall 2013, but later shifted to January, launching in a tough Friday night timeslot.
"With Enlisted, we feel really badly, it never got a fair chance, because of scheduling moves that happened around it," Earley says. He confirms that...
