Simplicity can be a helpful thing for an effective thriller — and that, sadly, is an attribute CBS's overwrought, underwatched Hostages (Monday, 10/9c) lacks altogether. The more complications this show introduces, the sillier it threatens to become. It's hard to imagine a subplot of less interest than the money problems of foxy hostage-taker Sandrine ...
How did so many former Emmy hosts wind up on the same stage? Who was that strange guy side-stepping off screen behind host Neil Patrick Harris? What was cut from the show as it went into overtime? TV Guide Magazine sat down with 65th Emmy Awards executive producer Ken Ehrlich backstage at the Nokia Theatre immediately after the show to get some background on this year's televised ceremony.
It's safe to say Louis C.K. probably wasn't standing in line Friday to get his hands on one of Apple's new iPhones.
In an interview with Conan O'Brien Thursday, the comedian went into great — and extremely thoughtful — detail about why he doesn't like smartphones and why he would never buy them for his kids even though, as he points out, everyone has them.

For many a new show, airing on NBC is its own form of being stranded in Siberia. And so it is with Siberia, a clunky new thriller in the guise of a reality-adventure competition show — take all of the we're-not-here-to-make-friends clichés and add violent mysterious death, shot in a Blair Witch Project-meets-Survivor style. This weird drama/reality hybrid — not as silly as ABC's Whodunnit?, but just as unconvincing — has the terrible luck to arrive on the scene going head to head (Monday, 10/9c) with CBS's Under the Dome, a week after the Stephen King project opened to blockbuster ratings.

Two weeks after he locked the final cut of Netflix's Arrested Development revival, show creator Mitch Hurwitz is catching up on TV, traveling to New York and checking social media to gauge the reaction to the fruits of two years of labor. "Right now my hope is that the people who are interested in the Bluth family give the show a try," he says of the new episodes, which each focus on a different character yet are intertwined.
The 15 Arrested episodes were released simultaneously on May 26. Fan reaction has been decent, but critics were mixed, with some of those negative reviews reportedly hurting Netflix's stock price (although anticipation for the show previously helped boost the streaming service's stock).
Hurwitz tweeted on May 28 that critics were "resisting change." But in a lengthy chat last week with TV Guide Magazine, he clarified what he meant, and also discussed his future plans for the show. Hurwitz even addressed Internet chatter about star Portia de Rossi's appearance. An edited transcript follows.

From the outside, soundstage No. 7 at Los Angeles's Culver Studios looks like an unremarkable airplane hangar. Inside? The fourth-season resurrection of the cult comedy Arrested Development rages in full eccentric swing as Cinco de Quatro — a fictional holiday meant to upstage the May 5 Mexican fiesta — is being celebrated noisily.
The Hangover Part III may be hitting theaters next weekend, but the real-life hangovers have ended for star Zach Galifianakis.
During an appearance on Conan this week, Galifianakis told host Conan O'Brien that he quit drinking after a tipsy late-night incident in Manhattan.
