"NCIS" is returning this fall for Season 19 – and things are going to be a little different on the CBS show following last season's Gibbs-related cliffhanger.
Fair warning: When you watch the 73rd annual Emmy Awards (Sept. 19 on CBS), prepare for some of your favorite stars to go home empty-handed—again. That’s because the show remains a tough competition for even the most established TV actors and actresses. “It’s frustrating,” says TV Guide senior critic Matt Roush. “Some people do their best work and yet just don’t get in the winner’s circle.” The reasons vary, from rotten timing (“Imagine going against Julia Louis-Dreyfus every year,” says Roush) to being on the “wrong” network—one without the clout to swing big votes—or on a traditional broadcast platform in the age of powerhouse streaming services like Netflix and Amazon.
Greg Nicotero On Season 3 Of Shudder’s “Creepshow,” The Show’s Production Process & Working With Chuck Norris
The “most wonderful time of the year” for Shudder kicked off earlier this month with its “61 Days of Halloween” annual event, as featuring a slate of weekly new movie premieres and original series debuts. This includes a new Halloween special with Joe Bob Briggs (and more specials to be announced), horror film favorites (e.g. Brian De Palma’s Carrie, Tobe Hooper’s Poltergeist, a new edition of Shudder’s beloved “Ghoul Log,” and the return of Shudder’s Halloween Hotline, where members can receive live, personalized movie recommendations from Shudder’s head curator Samuel Zimmerman.
Streaming services are now the official default entertainment medium, and we’re not mad about it. Instead of mindlessly scrolling through cable channels in the hopes that the Friends rerun on TBS is one of the good episodes, we can pinpoint exactly what we want and stream it anytime from any device. Like anything successful in the public marketplace, there are now a gazillion options for streaming services you can subscribe to, each of which requires you to cough up anywhere between $6-$15 a month to access their content.
Sunday's Emmys will almost certainly be a big night for Netflix and Apple. But will the show go the way pundits expect?. The 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards will be held on Sunday, and awards experts almost universally agree that Outstanding Drama Series will go to Netflix's The Crown, while Outstanding Comedy Series appears to be a lock for Apple's Ted Lasso. But the Emmys have brought us plenty of shock upsets before, including Fleabag's surprise 2019 victory over Veep. So is it possible one of these dominant frontrunners could actually lose?

Pete Hammond’s Emmy Predictions 2021: Outstanding Comedy Series – Following ‘Maisel’, ‘Fleabag’, ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Yet Another First Time Winner Guaranteed
In the past, Emmy voters tended to like one show and then let it repeat for several seasons as the champ in the Comedy Series category. Until very recently, just three series enjoyed multiple runs at the gold: there were three wins in a row for 30 Rock, followed by five wins in a row for Modern Family, then three wins in a row for Veep. However, in recent Emmy Awards the winner in this category has gone to three different shows in as many years: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (2018), Fleabag (2019), and Schitt’s Creek (2020). In all those cases...
2022 is set to be a big year for Chris Pratt, as he’s reprising Star-Lord and Owen Grady in Thor: Love and Thunder and Jurassic World: Dominion, respectively. This year, however, Pratt has left his mark on the film front by starring in Amazon’s The Tomorrow War, and one of his costars on the sci-fi movie was Veep’s Sam Richardson. Now word’s come in that these two will be re-teaming for another action-packed movie, although this one will have a comedic twist.
There's a new animated comedy on the block, and it features some familiar voices. Created by Brad Neely (China, IL) and produced by the animation company behind Big Mouth, The Harper House centers on a family of oddballs that moves into their inherited (and maybe haunted) Victorian when their mother loses her job. Who’s playing whom in Paramount+’s latest foray into adult animation? Read on:
The HBO comedy series Veep, created by Armando Iannucci, was a critical success for several reasons. Front and center of the series is comedic genius Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays the titular role of Vice President Selina Meyer. Selina quickly learns that there’s a lot more dirty work and not nearly as much glamor involved in her pretigious role. She barely has a relationship with the President (who the audience never meets) and she spends most of her time navigating the gross underbelly of politics with her tightly-wound staff, including Amy Brookheimer (Anna Chlumsky), Dan Egan (Reid Scott), Gary Walsh (Tony Hale), Kent Davison (Gary Cole), Ben Cafferty (Kevin Dunn), and Mike McLintock (Matt Walsh).

The show about nothing will not be nowhere. Let's not get hung up on double negatives, though that does sound like something the characters on "Seinfeld" might do in the booth at their favorite coffee shop. For years, TBS was the home for "Seinfeld" reruns on television, but all of that is about to change as the show moves to Comedy Central in October.
Certain characters attract a particular rating for the superhero genre. Introducing Woody Harrelson (Zombieland: Double Tap) as Carnage in Venom 2 made fans hope for a rated R movie as reports came in about the more adult rating for future installments. Unfortunately for some people, it will follow its predecessor from 2018 and be PG-13. Despite that disappointing rating, director Andy Serkis (Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle) weighed in about the controversial decision.
