How Emmy's Controversial Category Choices Paid Off, and This Year's Other Trivia

Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson

According to the Emmy Awards ballot, True Detective isn't a miniseries, but Fargo and American Horror Story: Coven are. Orange is the New Black, Nurse Jackie and Shameless are comedies, even though there are frequently more tears than laughs on those shows.

The debate over how to classify shows that defy classification ruffled plenty of feathers during this year's Emmy campaign season. Yet... read more

Emmy Watch: As TV Splinters, Key Categories Get Squeezed

Emmy Rossum and Jeremy Allen White

You wouldn't compare a McDonald's Extra Value Meal to an expensive dinner at a five-star restaurant. But that's the predicament Emmy Awards voters increasingly face in such key categories as comedy and drama. (Nominations will be announced July 10; NBC airs the ceremony, hosted by Seth Meyers, on August 25.)

As primetime splinters into subgenres, shows with little in common must compete in the same races, and there's no room at all for plenty of popular shows, particularly from the broadcast networks... read more

Weekend TV: Mad Men, Nurse Jackie, Bletchley Return

Elisabeth Moss

And so the unnecessarily long goodbye begins for AMC's breakout, breakthrough signature series Mad Men, its final 14 hours being unconscionably broken into two halves over two years, starting Sunday at 10/9c. (Yes, it worked for Breaking Bad, but this isn't that kind of show.) While prolonging the inevitable, and potentially blunting whatever narrative momentum still exists in a most inelegant and desperate-seeming way, it's no wonder the often dazzling opening episode — titled "Time Zones," in a nod to the firm's now-bicoastal focus — is so preoccupied with time.

Ask Matt: Mother Finale, More Good Wife Reaction, Americans, NCIS

Question: I imagine you must be getting flooded with questions and/or ranting about the finale of How I Met Your Mother. I was among those who left the finale feeling incredibly sad, not what I expect from a show that's kept me laughing (and sometimes crying) for the last nine years, even when others were saying that the quality had declined. The thing is, when looked at objectively, I don't even have a major problem (Major Problem!) with the content of the finale. Yes, people get divorced and people die. People get remarried after both, and I've known several people in my own life who have reconnected with an old girlfriend or high-school sweetheart after the death of a spouse. It doesn't invalidate the marriage or even lessen the feelings of loss. The finale itself had great moments: the high-infinity, Marshall's "positive talk" about his corporate job, Judge Fudge, the mother's Gore/Lieberman costume, robots versus wrestlers, etc. Seeing Barney with a child was wonderful, although I did think he had grown more than immediately going back to his old ways after his divorce. And the scene on the platform was near perfection as they wove in how their almost-shared history was influencing their connection, making the whole nine-year story relevant to how he'd actually met the mother. (By the way, one more TM would be the name we've known Tracy by: The Mother.)

Showtime President David Nevins didn't waste any time addressing the elephant in the room — aka awards darling Homeland's uneven third season — during the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Thursday.

"From what I've read on Twitter, there were a lot of different opinions about the show this year," Nevins told reporters. "All I can say is thank you for being so invested."

Showtime Boss: "Of Course" a Dexter Spin-Off Is Possible

Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall

Not ready to say goodbye to Dexter? Then get ready to overreact to this news.

After revealing that Showtime had signed a "rare" two-year overall deal with Dexter showrunner Scott Buck, network president David Nevins was asked whether a spin-off series was still being considered.

Get all the latest TCA news

"Of course," Nevins told reporters at the Television Critics Association fall previews Tuesday. "We announced a deal with Scott Buck today. Draw your own conclusions."

Pressed for details after the panel, Nevins clarified that nothing is actively in the works and that no deals with cast members have been extended. (The Hollywood Reporter previously reported rumblings of a spin-off centered on Jennifer Carpenter's Debra.) "We have a deal with Scott and we're going to develop a bunch of different things with him," he said. "All options will be explored. We're really not dealing with it at all until we're through this season and maybe for a while thereafter. It's all about the satisfying ending to the show."

To that end... read more

Question: Why don't the broadcast networks produce comedy-dramas anymore? It was not more than 10 years ago when the networks were full of successful long-running dramedies like Ally McBeal, The West Wing and Gilmore Girls. But now all those dramedy show-runners have moved over to the cable networks: David E. Kelley has just produced Monday Mornings for TNT, Aaron Sorkin is with The Newsroom on HBO, and Amy Sherman-Palladino had (the great) Bunheads on ABC Family. And lots of successful ...
