WESTWORLD: Check Out 11 Images From Season 2!

March 16, 2018 by  
Filed under Westworld

The first images from HBO’s WESTWORLD season 2 are…deceptively calm.

Given the mayhem the first season finale unleashed—the hosts took control over the Westworld section of the park, and Maeve (Thandie Newton) made the first real choice of her existence—the first official photos released show little of the real fallout. But in true WESTWORLD fashion, the photos are gorgeous and there’s enough ambiguity to fuel some speculation. (Currently obsessing about what could be occurring in this shot.)

Check out some photos from the sophomore season of WESTWORLD!

Annabella Sciorra has joined the second season of MARVEL’s LUKE CAGE, Marvel and Netflix announced. 

Sciorra—who was Emmy-nominated for her guest work on HBO’s THE SOPRANOS—will play Rosalie Carbone, “a dangerous downtown criminal underworld power player with an eye, and an agenda, toward Harlem.” (In the comics, Rosalie had ties to Frank Castle/the Punisher.) The previously announced cast of LUKE CAGE season 2 includes Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Alfre Woodard (Mariah Dillard), and Theo Rossi (Shades).

“I’ve been a huge fan of hers since Spike Lee’s JUNGLE FEVER, and Anabella Sciorra is no joke as Rosalie Carbone,” said showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker in a statement. “You haven’t seen her this gangster since her thrilling turn as Tony’s formidable flame Gloria Trillo on season 3 of THE SOPRANOS. I’m thrilled her introduction to the Marvel Universe will be on MARVEL’S LUKE CAGE.”

“We couldn’t be happier to be working with such an incredible talent,” added Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb. “This character is complex and layered and Annabella is the perfect actress to portray her.”

Sciorra, who last appeared on television as an ADA on CBS’ BULL, will next recur on Netflix’s GLOW season 2.

Are you excited Rosalie will be causing trouble on MARVEL’S LUKE CAGE?

SUPERSTORE: Justin Spitzer on the Amy-Jonah Kiss Fallout, Mateo’s Revealed Secret, and More

SUPERSTORE, one of the best comedies currently on television, threw grenades into multiple relationships in last week’s episode.

In “Safety Training,” Amy’s (America Ferrera) attempt to befriend Kelly (Kelly Stables)—AKA Jonah’s (Ben Feldman) new girlfriend—backfired when she took credit for Kelly improperly hanging signs and was forced into safety training. To get Amy out of it, Dina (Lauren Ash) planned on playing footage of Kelly’s work mistake…and instead played a mishmash of footage which included Amy and Jonah’s kiss during last season’s tornado.

Meanwhile, Mateo (Nico Santos) was injured by a falling sign, which helped out. After he kept turning down corporate’s offer for injury compensation, finally Jeff (Michael Bunin), his ex/the store’s distract manager, insisted on giving him money. But Mateo finally admitted he was undocumented and his inability to share that with Jeff was the real reason they broke up.

So where does the show go next? SUPERSTORE creator Justin Spitzer shared a few teases about what’s in store. Read more

BROOKLYN NINE-NINE Exclusive Video: Amy and Terry Get Unexpected Help

Filed under #1 featured, Brooklyn Nine-Nine

BROOKLYN NINE-NINE is finally (almost) back!

The Fox comedy has been off the air since December, and when it returns this Sunday (8:30/7:30c on Fox), the 99 is determined to protect Holt’s (Andre Braugher) husband Kevin (Marc Evan Jackson) from Seamus (guest star Paul Adelstein).

As the team puts Kevin away in a safe house, Amy (Melissa Fumero) and Terry (Terry Crews) sort through Seamus’ shredded documents to get insight into his location…but it isn’t exactly going well.  “I don’t know why, but I’m getting a strong ‘apache’ vibe,” Terry says in the exclusive clip below, in the midst of the madness.

Amy, on the other hand, has a different approach to the investigation: “I let the pile take me,” she laments. Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller) offers his assistance—and, shockingly, he could be the key to making sense of the evidence.

Check out this exclusive clip from Sunday’s episode! Read more

It’s a SUPERSTORE free-for-all this Thursday when Glenn (Mark McKinney) and Dina (Lauren Ash) offer amnesty to the Cloud 9 employees—and naturally, people take advantage of the intriguing offer.

Elsewhere, poor Jonah (Ben Feldman) and Amy (America Ferrera) may be hoping for amnesty of their own. After their tornado-inspired kiss (in the season 2 finale) was revealed via surveillance footage, their colleagues have a lot of questions about their relationship.

CNBC Revives DEAL OR NO DEAL with Howie Mandel

March 13, 2018 by  
Filed under Deal or No Deal

CNBC has ordered a new version of DEAL OR NO DEAL, starring longtime host Howie Mandel. The game show featured contestants picking a suitcase (which contained an amount of money ranging from a penny to one million dollars) and then opening the remaining ones as they decided whether to stick with their original choice or take a alternate deal.

“Our primetime programs, with their focus on business and money, strive to be both entertaining and instructive. Shows like THE PROFIT and SHARK TANK are built around high stakes and high rewards. Those same elements live at the heart of DEAL OR NO DEAL, which is why we believe it to be a perfect fit,” said CNBC Chairman Mark Hoffman in a statement. “Today’s announcement confirms our deep commitment to primetime, strengthening our line-up, by adding one of the most successful game shows of all time along with the popular, original host, Howie Mandel.”

THE VOICE Highlight: Kelly Clarkson Uses Her Block for Hannah Goebel

Filed under The Voice

For the first time, a VOICE coach’s block button paid off.

In Monday’s episode, Kelly Clarkson (the only coach with a block remaining) used the new twist on Alicia Keys when contestant Hannah Goebel performed Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You.” The move worked out in Clarkson’s favor: Adam Levine and Blake Shelton turned around fairly fast, and Keys hit her button near the end of the song. Goebel admitted she would have picked Keys if she had the choice, but with her out of the running, she ultimately opted to join Clarkson’s team.

THE X-FILES Finale: ‘My Struggle IV’ Photos

Filed under #1 featured, The X-Files

How the heck is THE X-FILES going to conclude?

The Fox drama shook up its mythology in the season 11 premiere when it was revealed that the catastrophic season 10 finale—which saw an outbreak unleashed upon the world and Mulder (David Duchovny) on the verge of death, as Scully (Gillian Anderson) attempted to find a cure—was merely a premonition of what was to come.

In the season 11 finale, “My Struggle IV,” CSM (William B. Davis) does appear to be on the verge of unleashing a biological contagion on the world. And though Mulder and Scully parted with their biological son William (Miles Robbins) at the end of episode 5, he is once again back in their orbit.

Check out some photos from THE X-FILES’ finale.
