Growing Up Fisher Creator: I Wanted to Write a Love Letter to My Dad

Most people love to share stories about their wacky and crazy families. But few experience the reaction comedian and TV writer DJ Nash (Bent, Up All Night) used to get.

"I was telling a story about my dad cutting down a tree with a chainsaw — because I thought that that was not a big deal, I really...read more

Weekend Review: About a Boy, Fisher Sneak Peeks, Downton Finale

This week's gold-medal question: Can NBC reverse its spotty track record when it comes to using the ratings boost of the Olympics to launch new programs? (Remember the Summer 2012 debacle when the network interrupted the flow of London's Closing Ceremony to inflict Animal Practice on an unwilling captive audience?)

The news is better this weekend, during the closing nights of the Games. The comedies getting a sneak peek are considerably more entertaining than Animal Practice — what wouldn't be? — and they won't air until after that night's Olympics packages are finished.

First up is NBC's best new comedy of the season (including the star-driven disappointments that flopped on Thursdays this fall): About a Boy, airing Saturday night at approximately 11/10c before moving to its regular time period next Tuesday at 9/8c. This charmingly offbeat ...read more

Henry Winkler on His Royal Pains Return and "Insane" Parks and Rec Guest Spot

To some — OK, millions — Henry Winkler will always be best known as Arthur 'Fonzie' Fonzarelli from the iconic TV series Happy Days. But to a whole new generation of fans, Winkler gets recognized for a much more recent role.

"I did a Broadway play in October and a little 10-year-old boy came up to me and said, 'Hi I'm your fan,'" Winkler tells TVGuide.com. "And I went, 'Oh, you read my books?' and he said, 'No, I love Royal Pains."

Since Winkler's debut on the show in Season 2, the actor has made quite an impression as the charming yet calculating Eddie R. Lawson. Eight months after... read more

1600 Penn Boss: We're Not Worried About Political Correctness

1600 Penn is about the First Family, but it's definitely not about politics.

"It takes a little bit of time, but we do quickly [get] to a show that concentrates more on the family dynamics where the White house is just a back drop," executive producer Mike Royce told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter previews. "That's a product of how we have to launch the stories that occur, but as we go along we're able to turn things more inward which I think is a more interesting place to be."
