The Biz: Revisiting The Merv Griffin Show

Zsa Zsa Gabor and Merv Griffin

Merv Griffin died in 2007, but he lives on in TV history thanks to having created the remarkably durable game shows Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. He even composed the iconic Jeopardy theme song. But for baby boomers, Griffin will always be remembered for his talk show that ran in several incarnations from 1962 to 1986. Thanks to a hilarious impersonation by SCTV's Rick Moranis, Griffin developed a reputation for being an obsequious lightweight who ooh-ed and ahh-ed at every word his guests said.

The Comeback's Comeback, Newsroom's Final Edition, Simpsons Meets Futurama

Lisa Kudrow

Valerie Cherish is forever seeking the most flattering light — from the cameras of the hapless reality-TV crew that surround her, from the two-faced Hollywood cronies who mock her, from life itself — and the tragic comedy of HBO's The Comeback, making its own most-welcome comeback (Sunday, 10/9c) after nearly a decade off the air, is that she so rarely finds it... read more

Futurama Returns for Time-Traveling Crossover With The Simpsons

The Simpsons

Futurama lives! For one night at least. The long-running sci-fi cartoon spoof, which signed off last year, is making a time-traveling comeback on The Simpsons (Sunday, Nov. 9 at 8/7c on Fox). Despite the fact the shows are set 1,000 years apart, the crossover makes sense, given that both series were created by Matt Groening and share a similar animation style. "At the table read, I said, "Let's celebrate this joyous reunion between Matt Groening's left and right brains,'" says Simpsons executive producer Al Jean. "And I really think that's what it is." read more

A Return to Cherish: The Comeback Makes a Comeback

Michael Patrick King, Lisa Kudrow

She never took it personally. Nearly a decade has passed since HBO canceled Lisa Kudrow's Emmy-nominated, cult-hit comedy The Comeback — a prickly satire on Hollywood neediness — but now, in a startling mea culpa, the cable channel is reviving the series for another season.

What's That Song? A Roundup of This Fall's TV Themes

Marry Me

TV theme songs remain a rarity in primetime, with most shows settling for a quick title card and short instrumental burst. (Witness this fall's no-frills openings on shows like Jane the Virgin.) But a few new shows are still keeping the form alive. That includes Showtime's new steamy relationship drama The Affair, which commissioned an original piece from Fiona Apple.
