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

Top Moments: Richard Simmons Goes Crazy and Oprah's Big Hang-Up

Richard Simmons and Jimmy Kimmel

Our top moments of the week:

11. Best Arrival: Viewers say goodbye to 24/7 soccer coverage and hello to FX's new sister channel, FXX, in appropriate fashion. When FXX officially kicks off at 7 a.m. Monday morning, the reception begins to go out and the game footage interchanges with an image of a black leather couch. Suddenly, the black leather couch begins to move and out from the seams bursts a very hot and a very naked Danny DeVito in a classic It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia clip. Goal!

10. Most Surprising Twist: Mistresses' Karen thinks her nightmare is over after the wrongful-death lawsuit against her is dismissed, but then her medical license gets suspended for six months. Who ratted her out for sleeping with Thomas (not to mention helping him die)? Not Elizabeth, but her... read more

The Wednesday Playlist: MTM's Cleveland Reunion, Futurama Finale, Comedies on FXX

Hot in Cleveland

At the risk of mixing one's classic-comedy metaphors ... While watching the ladies of The Mary Tyler Moore Show reunite for a chipper if undeniably poignant exercise in meta nostalgia on TV Land's Hot in Cleveland (Wednesday, 10/9c), you might find yourself wistfully recalling the old Carol Burnett Show theme: "I'm so glad we had this time together." This is especially true for the iconic buddy duo of Mary and Rhoda, with Mary Tyler Moore appearing even more frail than Valerie Harper, whose inspiring public battle with brain cancer pretty much defines the quality once attributed to Mary Richards: "spunk."

Futurama Signs Off With Its Latest Series Finale

Futurama

The Futurama producers have plenty of experience writing series finales. After all, Wednesday's episode marks the fourth time they've thought they were bringing their outrageous animated sci-fi comedy to a close. Originally canceled by Fox back in 2003, the show later gained new life (and fans) with a series of DVD movies before Comedy Central resurrected the show in 2010. Producers thought their new home would last just one season, so they prepared for another ending. Now, two years later, here they are, signing off again. And this time it's for good. Probably.

The Wednesday Playlist: Futurama's Final Season, Cleveland Goes Live

Futurama

"We need less adventures, not more adventures." We the longtime fans of Futurama would disagree with Cyclopean Leela's assessment as the delightfully berserk outer-space toon begins its final run on Comedy Central (Wednesday, 10/9), which revived the show long after Fox dropped it. read more

Scarier Cybermen and 6 More Ways Neil Gaiman Honors Doctor Who

Dr. Who

Neil Gaiman is a Whovian at heart, and it's never more clear than in the episodes he writes for Doctor Who.


Following the success of "The Doctor's Wife" two years ago, Gaiman returns with "Nightmare in Silver," which airs Saturday at 8/7c on BBC America. Showrunner Steven Moffat was able to lure back the award-winning writer with one succinct request: Make the Cybermen scary again.

Premise: Sharply satiric animation about a man from 1999 who thaws out on the eve of the 31st century. An Emmy-winning work cocreated by Matt Groening (`The Simpsons'), it had a `thaw' of its own, of sorts, after it ended its five-year Fox run, during which time it was too often pre-empted by pro-football overruns. After it left the network, however, the irreverent `Futurama' demonstrated that it still had a future, scoring big in cable reruns and DVD sales.
