Garner's last regular TV gig was 'Alias,' J.J. Abrams' grad-student-turned-spy drama, in which she starred for five seasons.
On Sunday’s season premiere of "Family Guy," Peter Griffin was fed up with the fact that his show never wins any Emmys. So they made a few changes, starting with replacing Peter’s wife, Lois, with Sofia Vergara — both in voice and likeness. From there, the show went on to parody or reference more than 20 iconic past and present TV shows.
Aug. 1 is National Girlfriend Day, a day for women to celebrate their special bond of friendship. And what better way to honor the day than with a look at the five best life lessons about friendship learned from some of television’s most famous girlfriends?
We’ve just passed the halfway point of the year and already there have been a host of gasp-inducing, scream worthy, and jump-out-of-your-chair-and-fling-your-remote-at-the-screen scenes that remind us we’re in the second Golden Age of Television. So many, in fact, that we can’t wait for December to round them all up, so here are our 10 favorite firework moments of 2017 so far. WARNING: It’s all spoilers from here on out!
TV has been taken over by #FreeTheP, which means male full frontal nudity is at an all-time high. So we gathered the best male nude scenes on TV recently.
'Girls' music supervisor Manish Raval on securing the first use of Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car," a new Robyn song, and a thank you from Paul McCartney.
Lately, television writers have been overestimating their audiences’ desire to see characters lose their lunch. From the prestige drama of HBO’s Big Little Lies and Game of Thrones to the teen tearjerker Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why to the outlandish comedy of Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet and Comedy Central’s Review, everyone is spilling their guts.
Dylan and Becky Ann Baker talk their careers, their marriage, and whether they leave their characters at the door when they come home together.
The series finale has become a site for elaborate overreaching (“Mad Men”’s Coke ad bliss out), absurdism (“The Sopranos”’s fade to black), and dreaminess (take your pick: the Seinfeld cast in jail, the group-hug on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” or the entire run of “Newhart” being a dream). Hannah (show creator Lena Dunham) had had her baby — a bouncing, 13-pound boy named Grover — and, for once true to her word, has moved out of New York City. A call for reinforcements was placed, and Hannah’s mom, Becky Ann Baker’s Loreen, arrived to provide an extra pair of arms and a lifetime of wisdom.
With so much to watch on TV it can be difficult to plan ahead. But we’re here to help! From "Better Call Saul" to "MST3K," here are the five shows you won’t want to miss this week.
"Jimmy Kimmel Live!" cooked up a pretty funny parody of "Girls" and "The Golden Girls" Wednesday. He called the sketch a reunion special for "Girls," which ends a six-season run April 16.
On “Girls,” there was an open call for “White Men Can’t Jump: The Musical,” and we finally got to hear the pipes on Elijah, played by “Book of Mormon” star Andrew Rannells. Singing “Let Me Be Your Star” from the hit show Bombshell — based on the hit TV show Smash — Elijah shone, and he was asked to stay for the monologue. When the dance tryout segment got started, Elijah was holding his own, but things took a dive when they brought in the basketballs and he had to do the same kicks, spins, and jumps while dribbling a basketball.
On Wednesday, Ellen DeGeneres welcomed Girls star Lena Dunham, who recently spent time in the hospital due to endometriosis. While in the hospital, Dunham became close with her nurse, Jonnella, who happens to be a huge Ellen fan. Under the guise that Dunham was appearing on Ellen the following day, she Facetimed Jonnella and asked if she had any questions for Dunham to ask DeGeneres.
Having caught flak earlier for being overweight, Lena Dunham recently caught it for losing weight. She wasn’t trying to appease anyone with the move.
Last week’s revelation on Girls that Lena Dunham’s Hannah Horvath is pregnant felt like an almost-typical final-season surprise: Of course Dunham could bless her character with child now — whether she sees the pregnancy through or terminates it, there are now only five episodes left of the 10-episode final season, so following through on the repercussions of either decision will be brief, right? Early in the episode, we see Hannah making a list of “Reasons It’s Insane To Have a Baby.” On the list: “I am only 27” and “I act even younger than that.” Those were the two that jumped out at me (trust me, Hannah, being “not good at sports” does not prevent you from parenting enthusiastically), and Hannah is nothing if not self-aware.
On Watch What Happens: Live with Andy Cohen, Samuel L. Jackson finally got the chance to play a role he’s never played before: a girl. In the WWHL Clubhouse Playhouse, the Kong: Skull Island star re-enacted a scene from the hit HBO show Girls, playing Lena Dunham’s character, Hannah. Opposite Jackson was Girls star Allison Williams, playing her character from the show, Marnie.
Girls star Allison Williams joined Kong: Skull Island star Samuel L. Jackson on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. Williams is known for doing a lot of sex scenes in Girls, so it was only a little surprising when she was asked, “What’s worse, when a guy gets a boner during a sex scene or when he doesn’t?”
Pete Holmes has built his comedy career on being an awfully nice guy. Now Holmes has brought his image and his jokes to a sitcom, one he’s hatched with executive producer Judd Apatow, called "Crashing," which will premiere Sunday night on HBO. Holmes plays Pete, a New York comedian who’s trying to launch his career.
Heading into the final season of any show is guaranteed to put those involved in a reflective mood. And that’s how Yahoo TV found the cast and executive producers of HBO’s Girls during a recent New York City press day. Debuting in 2012, the series — which launches its final season on Feb. 12 at 10 p.m. with an expanded season premiere — instantly grabbed attention (and headlines) for its no-filter portrait of life as a 20-something female Brooklynite and all the assorted struggles (and privileges) that entails. ...
For the past five years, Apatow has been an executive producer of Lena Dunham’s acclaimed HBO series Girls, which is about to launch its sixth and final season on Feb. 12. The following week, he’ll unveil his next HBO series, Crashing, a peek at the contemporary New York standup comedy scene with comic Pete Holmes as our guide.
The cast of Girls took momentous steps onto the Inside the Actors Studio stage on Thursday and talked about their dirty sex scenes. Allison Williams revealed that she told the show’s creator, Lena Dunham, that she never wanted to be shown naked on-camera. Dunham described the roots of her penchant for baring her body for the camera.
If, in the years since Lena Dunham ascended to pop-culture prominence with the debut of HBO’s “Girls” in 2012, you have felt some irritation with her for the apparent self-absorption, even self-obsession, she projects in essays and in squibs on social-media platforms, let me say: My friend, I feel ya. This is also true of what is now an array of men who’ve been treated to what we might call The Hannah Horvath Experience. The new season starts with Hannah having an essay published — in the New York Times’s “Modern Love” column — that grew out of last season’s triumphant monologue and was delivered at the storytelling showcase Moth (Dunham always gets the little Manhattan striver details right).
