NBC is going drama/reality-heavy for its fall 2015 lineup, with only one hour of comedy scheduled in the entire week.

“We’re attacking the new season with the same programming strategy that successfully turned NBC around — a slate of provocative and innovative series and events that cut through the clutter and will continue to build on our momentum,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment in a statement. “We have several powerful new dramas and attention-getting new comedies, including the return of ‘Undateable,’ which will be broadcast live every week next season. Live programming is one more way to make a show undeniable.”

“We can’t wait for the fall season and the chance to roll out our lineup of distinctive, innovative new dramas and comedies, scheduled with the kind of lead-in support that will give each of our new shows the optimum chance to find their audiences and deliver on their outstanding potential,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “The fall lineup gives you only half the story. We truly program on a 52-week basis and are putting virtually the same amount of programming muscle behind our mid-season lineup, with some of the most high-profile concepts and biggest names on television joining the schedule starting at midseason and extending throughout the remainder of the broadcast year.”

“Unscripted programming has played a key role in NBC’s two consecutive season-long wins, from ‘The Voice’ to ‘America’s Got Talent’ to ‘American Ninja Warrior,’” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Late Night Programming, NBC Entertainment. “We’re excited to build on that momentum with some of the most inventive breakthrough alternative concepts coming in the new season, including ‘First Dates,’ ‘Little Big Shots’ and ‘Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris,’ featuring one of America’s most phenomenal performing talents hosting the U.S. adaptation of a smash-hit British series.”

Here’s the full NBC fall schedule, which includes BLINDSPOT getting the post-VOICE Monday slot, and HEROES REBORN kicking off Thursdays… Read more

EMPIRE’s Taraji P. Henson has been one of the big breakout stars this television season, and naturally, when she hosted SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, they had her portray her character Cookie Lyon. But since the show recently did an EMPIRE parody, SNL did the next best thing for Henson’s episode: they brought Cookie to SESAME STREET. And it was amazing.

Comments Off on SNL 40: Watch the Original Auditions Montage

During SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE’s 40th anniversary, one of the montage segments that was put together featured snippets from the original auditions of several cast members…and a few people who didn’t make the cut.

What’s impressive about this video is how many of the “known” characters from the show were there from the start. And, of course, many of them look so young.
