The Thursday Playlist: American Idol Results, a Glee Milestone and Raj Gets a Second Date

Zoanette Johnson

Will Nicki Minaj's "wife" Kree make the cut? How about Devin, the (quoting Nicki again) "Spanish Ken doll?" And could this be the end of the road for such curiosities as Zoanette "What's Tone Got To Do With It" Johnson and the appropriately named Charlie Askew? All will be revealed as Fox's American Idol moves back to Hollywood for a 90-minute live results show (8/7c), where America decides this year's Top 10 — but I wouldn't be surprised if the judges get a "wild card" pick should one or more of their faves fail to capture the voters' attention. read more

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.

Review: Great Comedy Tonight — And Anger Management

Charlie Sheen

It's something of a crying shame that the new comedy getting the most attention tonight (buzz-wise, though certainly not critically), and which almost certainly will attract the widest audience (of morbidly curious rubber-neckers, but who's counting) is by far the least worthy of attention or respect.

We're talking, of course, about Anger Management, bowing on FX with back-to-back episodes (9/8c) following a 12-hour marathon of Two and a Half Men repeats (starting at 9 am/8c) selected — so we're told — by Charlie Sheen himself. read more
