Steve Carell Returning to TV with Lead Role in Apple’s Aniston/Witherspoon Drama

Steve Carell Returning to TV with Lead Role in Apple’s Aniston/Witherspoon Drama
Nearly eight years after he left his iconic role on NBC’s The Office, actor Steve Carell is finally returning to television. In a testament to just how significantly the TV landscape has changed since Carell bid farewell to the classic sitcom, the actor has signed on for a lead role in an untitled drama series from Apple, which is expected to launch via the company sometime next year. This particular series revolves around the goings-on at a morning show and has been in the works for some time with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon starring and executive producing. …

Ratings: ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ Season 4 Premiere Is Decidedly Un-Legendary

Ratings: ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ Season 4 Premiere Is Decidedly Un-Legendary
ABC slipped week over week into a last place ratings tie among the Big 4 broadcast networks on Monday, though it wasn’t the saddest story in primetime. That unfortunate distinction belongs to CW series “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” which premiered its fourth season as the lowest-rated and least-watched show — including the Spanish-language networks.

Much higher up the Nielsen sheets, NBC won another Monday night with “The Voice” and “Manifest.” Thanks mostly to “9-1-1” and no 10 o’clock hour of programming, Fox finished second among adults 18-49.

NBC was first in ratings with a 1.7 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 8.6 million, according to preliminary numbers.

Fox was second in ratings with a 1.1/4, but fourth in viewers with 5.2 million.

ABC and CBS tied for third in ratings,

‘Judge Jerry': Jerry Springer Daytime Courtroom Show in the Works at NBCUniversal

‘Judge Jerry': Jerry Springer Daytime Courtroom Show in the Works at NBCUniversal
Judge Jerry, Judge Jerry, Judge Jerry!

Jerry Springer already has his next gig lined up, following the June announcement that NBCUniversal is longer making new episodes of his long-running talk show: a syndicated daytime courtroom show from the studio that brought you the “Jerry Springer Show,” aptly titled “Judge Jerry.”

An individual with knowledge of the project tells TheWrap the series is still in development, though NBCUniversal is eyeing a Fall 2019 premiere, which would line up with the airing of the final season of Springer’s daytime program. Because the program is still in the works, there is no final word on where the syndication rights for the series will land.

The series would feature former attorney Springer wearing a judge’s robe and seated behind a desk. So, you know, like every other courtroom show out there, but

The Five Best Charlize Theron Movies of Her Career

Charlize Theron is the type of actress that has really evolved and stepped up her game since coming onto the scene. Considering that she could have been seen as another pretty face and someone that could have been used for max sex appeal rather than any kind of talent it’s impressive to see how far she’s come and what kind of roles she’s taken on throughout her career. No one can deny that she’s played someone that’s supposedly soft and there to be seen as eye candy, but usually beneath that thin veneer she’s poised to become a very deadly

As Netflix Adds More Debt to Get Even Bigger, the Streaming Wars Enter Turbo-Charge Mode

Netflix won round one of the streaming wars, and with very little competition. But as several new services prepare to launch next year, the end game is far from over. Audiences are about to face more choice — and may soon have to shell out more subscription fees depending on their interests, as content is splintered across more services.

Disney, Apple and WarnerMedia are expected to unveil their own over-the-top digital services next year, and there could be even more beyond that as conglomerates realize this may be their last chance to get their foot in the door.

This coming rush of competitors might explain Monday’s news that Netflix planned to raise another $2 billion in financing via new debt. That’s not a surprise: Netflix has publicly said in the past that it would raise additional debt to help fund its rapid growth — just as it has many times before.

Megyn Kelly Apologizes for Defending Blackface on Today: 'I Realize Now That Such Behavior Is Indeed Wrong'
Megyn Kelly is reevaluating her stance on blackface. Just hours after stating on-air that it isn’t “racist” for white people to darken their skin with makeup on Halloween as long as they’re portraying an actual person or character, the host of Megyn Kelly Today on Tuesday sent an internal email to her staff, apologizing for her words.

“One of the wonderful things about my job is that I get the chance to express and hear a lot of opinions,” Kelly wrote in the email. “Today is one of those days where listening carefully to other points of view,

NBC Aims to Bolster ‘Tonight Show’ Producing Team With Veteran Executive
Jimmy Fallon on Monday night added an unconventional twist to his “Tonight Show.” He came out from behind his usual on-screen roost — his desk — to interview actress Juliette Lewis while sitting next to her on the seats normally reserved for guests.

“That’s the way things happen here on ‘The Tonight Show,’” Fallon told the actress. “No rules.”

Even so, the NBC late-night mainstay is expected to soon have a new person helping to set, and maybe break, some of “Tonight’s” rhythms.

Negotiations have begun to bring Jim Bell, the veteran NBC News and NBC Sports executive, on board to help run “Tonight,

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Len Kabasinski

Len Kabasinski has a rather interesting life, but when you realize it focuses largely around his influence in schlock movies a lot of people might turn up their noses and walk the other way. Some folks might still show a lot of interest since B movies, or schlock, can be kind of interesting and give a different perspective on various subjects that might not be as well covered in blockbusters that tend to gloss over certain points. Of course a lot of times B movies are lower on budget and don’t get a lot of attention since they don’t have

Robin Wright said returning to “House of Cards” after Kevin Spacey was fired when sexual misconduct allegations wasn’t as hard as one might think.

“We are all such a tight-knit family on that show and everyone was so dedicated to making the best of ‘House of Cards.’ What that meant was, we gotta close this out.

Arrow Season 7 Episode 2 Review: “The Longbow Hunters”

Although they receive only two extended scenes of screen time in tonight’s Arrow, the titular Longbow Hunters are already proving to be more formidable and more entertaining foes than Diaz was in Season 6. Sure, they’re technically working with Diaz, but Red Dart, Kodiak, and Silencer also stand out in fun, inventive ways, from their powers (Silencer’s abilities in particular are portrayed on screen in dynamic fashion) to their wardrobe to their minimal dialogue. Unlike Diaz, there’s no cliche-ridden monologues about how Star City is now theirs to control, or poorly shot fight scenes that try to illustrate how hard they punch.

The episode that aired this Sunday averaged a 1.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 5 million viewers.

Netflix’s ‘Elite’ Subverts Teen Drama Tropes With Style

Spoiler alert: This review includes some (but not all!) spoilers for the first season of Netflix’s “Élite.”

The first time I heard about Netflix’s new teen drama “Élite” was from a friend was gushing about how it felt like several great shows in one. If it were a mathematical equation, he said, “Elite” would look something like, “The O.C.” multiplied by “Gossip Girl,” divided by “Veronica Mars,” to the power of “Big Little Lies” — which, to be frank, sounded overwhelming. How could it take on so many tropes at once without becoming an overstuffed Frankenstein of a show?

Steve Carell Takes First Post-‘Office’ TV Role on Apple’s Reese Witherspoon/Jennifer Aniston Morning Show Drama

It may not have an official title, but the upcoming Apple show set at a morning news show is assembling quite an impressive roster of talent in front and behind the camera. The latest addition to the mix is Steve Carell, who’s set to join the cast that already includes Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston.

The series, which boasts Mimi Leder as a director and Kerry Ehrin as a showrunner, will center around employees on a morning TV show. Witherspoon and Aniston’s roles are still under wraps, but Carell is set to play Mitch Kessler, an anchor struggling with adapting to a changing media landscape.

Now That ‘Luke Cage’ Is Canceled, the Forecast for Netflix’s Marvel Series Is Bleak

Not long ago, those who follow the Netflix/Marvel universe were prone to complain about the associated bloat that came with six series launching within months of each other. But with the cancelation of “Iron Fist” swiftly followed by “Luke Cage,” that universe appears to be on the verge of implosion.

Taking place in the shadows of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in 2015 Netflix launched its interconnected series that also include “The Defenders,” “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” and “The Punisher.” They represented a big step forward for television about superheroes, grounding what might have been fantastical narratives in real world grit and dirt. “Daredevil” took on a corrupt local government in between ninja fights. “Jessica Jones” wasn’t just a hard-boiled detective story, but a thoughtful examination of trauma and survival. And “Luke Cage” swung hard at race issues, making its lead character’s hoodie an iconic statement.

Not every show was a success.

Steve Carell Is Doing Another Workplace TV Show, but it's Nothing Like The Office

Steve Carell famously played bumbling branch manager Michael Scott on The Office, and though Carell has since gone on to be a real-deal movie star, his next move looks like what the always-wrong Michael Scott might call a "365 degree turn."
