Amazon has unveiled its latest slate of original pilots — and, per usual, will let fan votes determine which ones get full series orders.
The five shows in Amazon's third pilot offering include three half-hour comedies — Red Oaks,The Cosmopolitans and Really — as well as two dramas, Hand of God and Hysteria. Viewers can watch the shows here, and rate/comment on them.
Scrubs' Sarah Chalke has joined Rainn Wilson in Fox's midseason drama Backstrom, TVLine reports.
Sarah Chalke, Selma Blair
Selma Blair has landed her first post-Anger Management role.
The actress has joined Amazon's single-camera ensemble comedy pilot Really, Deadline reports. Scrubs alum Sarah Chalke will play the female lead, alongside Jay Chandrasekhar, who is also writing and directing.
Cristin Milioti, Josh Radnor
"Tango! You're tangoing!" The photographer at TV Guide Magazine's cover shoot encourages Josh Radnor and Cristin Milioti to unleash their inner Latin groove. They laugh. Dip. Embrace. Lock eyes. Spin. Entwine legs. Almost fall. Hold each other up. Just like the loving goofball soul mates they play on How I Met Your Mother — idealistic architect Ted Mosby and his future bride, still known only as the Mother.
Kids, I know you're all riled up about The Mother possibly being dead on How I Met Your Mother. And I know Cristin Milioti calling the idea "insane" and "so crazy" hasn't really helped since she didn't actually debunk the theory to The Hollywood Reporter.
I understand why you're mad. You've invested nine years in this show and if Mrs. Mosby has been sleeping with the fishes all this time, as it was heavily implied last week, it feels cheap, disappointing, lazy and manipulative. I get it. But I'm also OK if she were dead.
How I Met Your Mother: A chronological timeline of craziness
Let me preface that I don't want her to die and, at this point, I don't think series creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, who've had the ending in mind since the show's conception, would do it (but talk to me again in three weeks). If there's one thing ...
Josh Radnor and Cristin Milioti
How I Met Your Mother managed to satisfy two groups of fans in one fell swoop.
For years, fans have disagreed about when The Mother (Cristin Milioti) should be introduced and how much we should see of her. Some wanted Ted (Josh Radnor) to meet her early and to see them as a couple, while others preferred the meet-and-cut-to-black series finale route. Last week's season premiere contained the best of both worlds: present-day, lonely, single Ted, who has ...
Lecy Goranson, who played the original Becky on Roseanne, never kept up with the show after she left for good in its penultimate season — and, as a result, she didn't even know that her on-screen father, Dan (John Goodman), died in the series finale.
Matthew Morrison, Sarah Chalke and Cheryl Hines
Sarah Chalke will do anything for a dare. And we mean anything.
On Thursday's episode of Hollywood Game Night (10/9c, NBC), the Scrubs alum reveals that she once...
Reid Scott, Sarah Chalke
Polly (Sarah Chalke) is faced with a dilemma this week on ABC's How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life): Should she go on a date with Scott or stay home with her daughter?
Michael Cudlitz, Gerald McRaney
Without question, the hour of TV I have been most anticipating — and dreading — this week is the season, and for all we know, series finale of TNT's remarkable, brutal, bleak yet gripping cop drama Southland (Wednesday, 10/9c). Anticipating because each week, this series somehow raises the dramatic stakes for its characters, in a grueling but rewarding tour of duty through the socio-ethnic sprawl of Los Angeles. Dreading because Southland has almost always lived on the verge of ratings extinction, from the time TNT rescued the show after NBC dumped it before its second season could even premiere, and I fear (as do many) that this fifth season could very likely be its last hurrah. (Several of its stars have signed up for new work during this pilot season, perhaps seeing the writing on the wall.)
