Jeff Zucker, Gavin Polone
Television producer Gavin Polone is not keeping quiet about his feelings towards new CNN President Jeff Zucker.
"I have specific reasons to dislike the guy, and his ignominious de-jobbing at the end of a bad run of failure at NBCUniversal was a happy event for me," Polone writes in an open letter featured in The Hollywood Reporter. "Given that, you can guess how displeased I was upon hearing that my nemesis had been chosen to lead CNN."
Is the show about nothing really the best sitcom of all time?
It is according to a new poll conducted by 60 Minutes and Vanity Fair, in which Americans voted Seinfeld as the top sitcom.
The NBC comedy based on the stand-up of Jerry Seinfeld amassed 22 percent of the vote, followed by...
As 30 Rock heads towards its series finale, it should come as no surprise that we'll see plenty of our favorite familiar faces returning.
Dean Winters, who portrayed Liz's (Tina Fey) horrible boyfriend Dennis Duffy, has been tapped to return in the upcoming Thursday, Nov. 29 episode, Vulture reports.
Yes, we're excited to see what trouble he'll bring, but there are so many other characters we'd love to see return as well! Here's our wish list for the final season:
Conan O'Brien, Andy Richter
The highly anticipated fourth season of Arrested Development is shaping up to be rather star-studded.
During an appearance on Conan Tuesday, Will Arnett revealed that Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter will both appear on the show.
The Dark Knight Returns
Even Batman has a sense of humor — or at least the people who bring him to life do. TV Guide Magazine has learned that Conan O'Brien will voice a role in the upcoming Warner Bros./DC Universe animated DVD-movie Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2. The late-night talk show host plays...
Mitt Romney, Big Bird
Wednesday's debate between President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney was the most tweeted-about event in U.S. political history, according to Twitter's government and politics team. Users sent 10.3 million debate-related tweets in 90 minutes, with commentary spiking at such memorable moments as Romney's mention of Big Bird as he discussed cutting funding to PBS ("I like Big Bird!" he said) and moderator Jim Lehrer's often unsuccessful attempts to cut the speakers off.
Britney Spears, Don Philip
Our top moments of the week:
13. Cheapest Move: After Rachel and Nick win Bachelor Pad, they have to decide separately if they want to share the $250,000 prize or each keep it for themselves. Rachel chooses to share, but Nick launches into a long diatribe about his unexpected victory. "Nobody sitting up there in the cast, nobody in this audience right now, and nobody sitting at home watching right now would have put their money on me to win this," he says. By the end, it's clear what his choice is: He keeps the money for himself, leaving Rachel with nothing. As Rachel tears up...

Question: What the heck is institutionally wrong with NBC that they can't seem to handle transitions with any class or make a choice and stick with it? I can remember the first Today show debacle when they pushed out Jane Pauley and put poor Deborah Norville in her place, only to abandon Norville to take the brunt of the backlash for their bad decision. Jump ahead to the next century where they push Jay Leno out before he's ready to go, but won't completely let go of him because they can't make up their minds. They put Leno where he's pretty much guaranteed to fail in prime time and then give up on Conan O'Brien before he's really had a chance to grow into the job. Again, treating both performers pretty shabbily considering what they'd contributed to the network.
Web Therapy's Fiona Wallice is crude, rude and she finally wants to become a better person in Season 2. But can she?
"Fiona sees her sister (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) for therapy and her sister destroys her, but in an unobvious way," Lisa Kudrow, who plays Fiona, tells TVGuide.com. "So Fiona starts rethinking her whole life and the next time we see her she's in bed, in tears, no makeup, pajamas — just a mess. And we've never seen her like that."

And unsurprisingly, it will be short-lived.
