Critic's Notebook: The Emmy Nominations

No one expects the Emmy nominations to please everybody — there's simply too much TV these days, including on unconventional platforms like Netflix, and there are always going to be shows and performers that won't make the cut, however deserving. But even when the Emmy voters get something right, like adding HBO's freshman hoot Silicon Valley to the best-comedy contenders, we still find ourselves griping over where they stumbled, nowhere more glaringly than in the drama-series race. (For a list of nominees in the major categories, go here.)

Ask Matt: Cancellations, Louie, Finales (Person of Interest, Castle, Blacklist, More)

Question: I am sure many people were disappointed by the cancellation announcements this year. I was especially sad to see Trophy Wife taken too soon. But it left me wondering why ABC didn't try a different time slot, and then I realized overall it seemed as though none of the networks moved shows around the schedule like they have done in the past. Do you think this strategy helps or hurts shows struggling to find an audience? — Rob

Megan Boone on The Blacklist Finale: Red Still Has Leverage

When a plane is about to crash-land in New York, the FBI is betting on Red.

Although we last saw The Blacklist's Red Reddington (James Spader) on his knees, arrested by the FBI, he won't be sitting out the second part of Monday's finale (10/9c, NBC). "His relationship with the FBI is similar, but now obviously it's more complicated," star Megan Boone told reporters at a recent lunch in West Hollywood. "He still has answers they need to stop a major catastrophe, and that major catastrophe is Berlin. In their mind, he has information about Berlin that they need in order to stop civilian casualties and a huge catastrophe in New York City. He still has leverage."

The Blacklist Boss Teases Berlin and Answers Burning Questions

Berlin is coming for Red.

On Monday, The Blacklist (10/9c, NBC) kicks off the first of a two-part epic season finale. "The midseason finale 'Anslo Garrick' is sort of the inspiration for the template of this episode, in the sense that we've got a really great Blacklister and a case that is worthy of a two-parter," creator Jon Bokenkamp tells TVGuide.com. "The finale is big and muscular. It's so big that it's not one that we can really squeeze into one episode with all the other serialized mythology and storytelling we want to do. " read more
