Happy Thanksgiving! In honor of Turkey Day, we've compiled some of our favorite past and present Thanksgiving-themed videos for this week's edition of Top Videos. Check out the clips below to celebrate with Will Ferrell, Tracy Morgan, Larry David, The West Wing's President Bartlet, and more:
Ja'mie King is on top of the world. At least, she thinks she is.
The vapid, self-obsessed teenager who was introduced in Chris Lilley's mockumentary series We Can Be Heroes and Summer Heights High is now getting her own show: Ja'mie: Private School Girl, which premieres Sunday on HBO.
Strong female characters are rarely allowed to be nuanced on TV. They don't get to be brilliant, vain or funny. They get to be strong (and maybe sexy, if they're lucky). They kick a--, overcome obstacles and rarely display any signs of feminine vulnerability. Often times, their strength is framed as the result of some "issue," (SVU's Olivia Benson troubled childhood, Sonya Cross' Asperger's on The Bridge), as though the women are only strong because a catalyst forced them to be this way.
But Mindy Lahiri doesn't have issues (well, she has issues, but not in that sense). She's a strong, well-developed comedic antihero on par with Michael Scott. But many Mindy Project viewers didn't warm to Mindy as quickly as they took to the equally offensive Office boss. "I think that [Mindy] is very resilient and very confident and until you see her display kindness or show rapport with other people, it's hard for an audience just to decide they love her," Mindy Kaling tells TVGuide.com, recalling the initial reaction to the character.
The start of the 2013 NFL season is only days away, and NFL Network's Rich Eisen is preparing with a little help from his celebrity friends Matt Damon, Kevin Costner and Larry David on The Rich Eisen Kickoff Special (airing Tuesday at 10:30/9:30c). The NFL GameDay Morning host — whose weekly podcast just surpassed 10 million downloads — sat down with the three devout sports fans to discuss their favorite teams and break down football's most notable off-season stories.
Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul
As if we needed more evidence that there's never a slow time of year for significant TV (except maybe Christmas week), here's a mid-August weekend with so many premieres you might think fall had come early — although the new fall season would be lucky to boast shows remotely this interesting.
The greatest buzz, of course, surrounds the beginning of the end of AMC's darkly entertaining masterpiece Breaking Bad (Sunday, 9/8c), which resumes its climactic trajectory with the first of eight final episodes — and if Sunday's blistering hour is any indication of what's to come over the next two months, we're in for quite the wrenching ride. A ride that's teased by an opening flash-forward which suggests catastrophic consequences for the domestic life of Walter White (Bryan Cranston, astonishing as ever in his swings from mensch to menacing) — whose criminal alter ego is now in danger of being exposed by his brother-in-law/DEA agent Hank (Dean Norris, a world removed from the melodramatics of his new gig Under the Dome).
Don't believe everything your boss says, or at least, not Jeff Garlin's boss.
Although Larry David sounded iffy about a new season of HBO's hit comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm last month, Garlin told the Television Critics Association during the fall previews on Sunday that David's uncertainty wasn't necessarily a...
It's been two years since new episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm last graced our television sets, but creator and star Larry David seems in no rush to make a decision about whether the comedy will be back at all, much less start work on a new season.
"That's not such a good question," David told reporters at Thursday's Television Critics Association's fall TV previews when asked about a possible ninth season. "I have not [decided]. I don't know. I really don't know. I couldn't say. Ask me in...
Just two episodes into Newsroom's second season, HBO's President of Programming Michael Lombardo and CEO Richard Plepler are confident that the Aaron Sorkin drama will soon be renewed for a third season.
"The odds are excellent," Lombardo said at Thursday's Television Critics Association's fall TV previews. "We're...
Look closely, Curb Your Enthusiasm fans — that really is Larry David in the new trailer for the upcoming HBO film Clear History.
FX will not be moving forward with Russell Brand's late-night talk show Brand X, CEO John Landgraf announced Thursday.
