Best Buds Will Arnett and Sean Hayes Dish on Working Together on The Millers

Will Arnett and Sean Hayes

Call it kismet. Call it the meeting of two great comedic forces. Call it a show not resting on its first-season laurels (as creator Greg Garcia does: "We want to keep that momentum going"). Will & Grace Emmy winner Sean Hayes joins off-screen buddy Will Arnett (Nathan) as a series regular on Season 2 of The Millers, and the results are unsurprisingly amusing. He plays Kip Finkle, newly divorced roommate to Nathan's mom, Carol (Margo Martindale), and foil to her TV reporter son. "Kip considers Nathan and his career kind of dumb," Garcia says, which leads to plenty of funny friction. Hayes and Arnett called us up for a slightly loopy chat before the Oct. 20 premiere... read more

Weekend TV: Simpsons' 25th Treehouse of Horror, Foo Fighters' Sonic Highways, Finales of Knick and Manhattan

The Simpsons

Some milestones can't help but make a longtime TV viewer feel a bit long in the tooth. Such is the case this Sunday, as Fox's The Simpsons marks a full quarter-century of spooky satire with its 25th annual "Treehouse of Horror" Halloween trilogy (8/7c), which strikes a nostalgic chord from its opening fanfare, echoing the classic (and still-missed) theme from Johnny Carson's Tonight Show — with a macabre twist, naturally.
