A Return to Cherish: The Comeback Makes a Comeback

Michael Patrick King, Lisa Kudrow

She never took it personally. Nearly a decade has passed since HBO canceled Lisa Kudrow's Emmy-nominated, cult-hit comedy The Comeback — a prickly satire on Hollywood neediness — but now, in a startling mea culpa, the cable channel is reviving the series for another season. Kudrow calls the rebirth "crazy and miraculous," but you won't find her sitting around feeling vindicated.

The New Season in Review: Marry Me

Casey Wilson, Ken Marino

Ironic that in a fall season where so many new romantic comedies are fighting for our attention, and maybe even our affection, I'm still waiting to fall in love. Maybe it's the Goldilocks syndrome of being necessarily picky: one's too gimmicky (Manhattan Love Story), one's too generic (A to Z), one's too self-consciously trendy (Selfie), none seems just right.

Last of the batch to arrive, and thankfully not the least, NBC's brash and hyper-verbal farce Marry Me (Tuesday, 9/8c) is at least worth falling in "like" with, especially if your own heart was broken by ABC's cancellation of Happy Endings a year or so ago. That show's executive producer, David Caspe, has cast the funniest female from that ensemble (Saturday Night Live veteran Casey Wilson) — who happens to be his real-life bride — as the maddening Annie, who's her own worst enemy when it comes to her six-year romance with the long-suffering Jake (an endearingly droll Ken Marino).

Thursday TV: Meloni Tackles Comedy as Jack

Chris Meloni

I've barely adjusted to The Goldbergs mining the 1980s for comic nostalgia — seems not that long ago that Geraldo Rivera opened Al Capone's empty vault, and that's a subplot in an early April episode — and now comes Fox's Surviving Jack (Thursday, 9:30/8:30c), a coming-of-age family sitcom set in the not-so-distant past of the 1990s. (Can't wait for the arc about Y2K anxiety.)

Scandal: Jake Ballard Was Never Meant to Be a Hero

Scott Foley

To say that Scandal fans are very vocal about the ABC political fixer drama would be an understatement. But those devoted Gladiators took things to a whole new level after Thursday's shocking episode, in which Jake Ballard (Scott Foley) brutally killed James Novak (Dan Bucatinsky) in order to protect the Republic.

Scandal's Jeff Perry: Cyrus can't let this death be in vain

Viewers were distraught that Jake had seemingly crossed a line by killing a character — and two other women — that they had come to care about. Even worse, this meant that fans' beloved Jake, who had become a love interest for Scandal's fearless leader Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington), had gone to the dark side! Oh no!

But let's get something straight: read more

Question: Just wondering if you've heard anything about or seen the pilot of FX's adaptation of Fargo yet? Obviously it's too early to tell, but just from the previews and the looks of the cast, it seems to me like it could be in contention for a few Emmys later this year? — Kevin
