ABC Boss on Fall Failures, Revitalizing Dancing and Looking forward to S.H.I.E.L.D.

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovalani

For ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee, the Alphabet network's fall schedule was a bit of a mixed bag.

"We have a lot to shout about and we also have a lot to do," Lee told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter TV previews on Thursday. The network, which finished 2012 in third place behind NBC and Fox, struggled to launch new shows  -- new dramas Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue were canceled; Nashville is solid, though Lee wishes he had more viewers in the 35-to-49 demographic — and saw previous ratings juggernaut Dancing with the Stars slide to new lows.

Ricky Gervais' New Netflix Sitcom Derek About the Elderly Is Sweet, Not Cruel

Ricky Gervais

Ricky Gervais may have enjoyed being the "most feared man in Hollywood" when he notoriously offended many as a the host of the Golden Globes, but he insists that his new sitcom Derek, set in a nursing home, is "sweeter" than his usual fare.

Derek, an original series to premiere on Netflix sometime this year, won't target the elderly with Gervais' sardonic wit. The show's humor doesn't lie in mocking them, but rather in taking jabs at the callous outside world and its marginalization of the elderly. It's certainly not an obvious topic for humor, but Gervais hopes that viewers will give the show a chance.

"I think there's risk of people not watching it because of assumptions that it was cruel," he said at Netflix's winter TV previews on Wednesday. "There's risk that they don't get it. Or that they get it and don't like it. ... I haven't felt this excited and proud of a project since The Office. That's the truth of it."

Who Will You Root for on FX's KGB Spy Drama The Americans?

The Americans

In FX's new Cold War-era spy drama The Americans, viewers may actually find themselves rooting for... the Russians. At least that's what producers hope for.

FX reveals premiere date for The Americans

The Americans stars Felicity's Keri Russell and Brothers & Sisters' Matthew Rhys as married KGB sleeper agents stationed in Washington, D.C., whose entire lives in America have been carefully crafted — even down to the two children they have together — in order to protect their true identities. Despite their shady dealings and ultimate goals to topple the American government, viewers may find themselves sympathizing with the couple since, at its core, the show is a family drama.

FX Chief Weighs In on Violence on TV, It's Always Sunny and Anger Management

John Landgraf

"I'm a really curious person ... I'd be interested in studies on violence in entertainment and the correlation of violence in real life," FX chief John Landgraf told reporters at the FX winter previews Wednesday. "If we find meaningful correlations, we should act on those correlations."

Landgraf, whose network airs the sometimes brutally violent Sons of Anarchy, was responding to the inevitable questions about violence and responsibility question that has been prevalent at the Television Critics Association tour this month. Although he pointed out that the U.S. and U.K. consume the same violent media (The Walking Dead is the No. 1 cable show in England), violent gun deaths are significantly higher in the States. He theorized that it is differences in the countries' gun-control policies ... read more
