7 Reasons Why Netflix's BoJack Horseman Is the Funniest Show of the Fall

Netflix has done it again.

While the Broadcast Sitcom Assembly Line has generated shows ranging from the lukewarm (A to Z) to the downright languid (Mulaney), Netflix has trotted out (heh) BoJack Horseman, the rare show whose execution lives up to its ambition.

In this fall's stale comedy landscape, BoJack is like a breath of fresh air — and it's clear that Netflix has faith in its latest project, which was renewed four days after it premiered last month. The cartoon's just-go-with-it premise follows the title character (voiced by Will Arnett), a washed-up former equine star of the '90s hit sitcom "Horsin' Around" who's trying to write his memoir. The show really finds its footing by Episode 3, which skewers ...

Mega Buzz: A Blacklist Betrayal, New Girl's New Date and Gotham's True Hero

Each week, executive editor Adam Bryant satisfies your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Do you have any new info on The Blacklist's new season? —  Roger
How about some exclusive casting news? Tony-nominated Broadway veteran Norm Lewis — who is currently starring in the title role of The Phantom of the Opera and did a stint last season on Scandal — has been tapped to play J.P. Laskin, a business associate of Red's who doesn't exactly agree with his recent moves in the ongoing war with Berlin. In fact, I hear Laskin may even be tempted to switch sides. Of course, once Red finds out about the betrayal, he'll probably make the choice for him. Perhaps playing a "phantom" will come in handy!  

I'm really curious to see how Nick and Jess are doing after their break-up last season on
 New Girl. What will their dynamic be like when the show returns? — Lindsay
Four months have passed since Nick and Jess were last romantically involved, but unfortunately for Jess, it's been a bit of a slow summer in the love department...read more

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Reveals New Characters, Carter Adds Captain Directors

There will be some new faces on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this fall!

With the government coming after S.H.I.E.L.D., Director Coulson (Clark Gregg) will be on the hunt for anyone who can help the team rebuild. Among the newcomers he'll turn to is Lance Hunter (Nick Blood), who in the comics was the director of S.T.R.I.K.E. — and who we first teased in Mega Buzz. "He's not a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, he's a mercenary," executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen announced during the Marvel TV Comic-Con panel on Friday.

Wednesday TV: Psych Finale, Family Goes to Vegas, Live TV on TV Land

As USA Network's Psych hangs up its pineapple after eight seasons of tomfoolery — or should it be called Shawn-foolery? — mystery takes even more of a back seat to comedy than usual in the series finale (Wednesday, 9/8c), ominously titled "The Breakup." While there is a murder to be solved (frequently referred to as "our last case"), it's a perfunctory distraction at best to Shawn's main concern: how to tell Gus that their bromantic partnership may in fact be over. read more
