Erinn Hayes Makes Dig About Auditions After ‘Kevin Can Wait’ Firing
Erinn Hayes has auditions on the mind after her exit from “Kevin Can Wait.” The actress, who co-starred with Kevin James on the CBS sitcom until she was let go over the summer, recently took to Twitter to respond to a joke about auditions, and perhaps offer a new window into her thoughts about having to leave a successful show. “Auditions are like a–holes….That’s it,” tweeted actor and writer Seth Morris, who worked with Hayes on “Children’s Hospital.” Also Read: Erinn Hayes Says She's 'Very Aware' That Scientology Is Behind 'Bashing' of 'Kevin Can Wait' Hayes replied,

‘Love’ Season 2 Review: Netflix’s Relationship Comedy Delivers Heartbreak As Promised

‘Love’ Season 2 Review: Netflix’s Relationship Comedy Delivers Heartbreak As Promised
Netflix’s “Love” may be one of the hardest TV series titles to search on Google. But the folks behind the show still like the title.

“It’s like how I love when I see a diner and it’s just called ‘Food,'” said executive producer Judd Apatow, speaking to IndieWire with stars Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs. “No need to come up with a fancy name.”

“You can’t get angry,” Rust added. “They’re like, ‘Hey, we promised food.'”

In a similar fashion, with the title “Love,” Apatow, Rust, and co-creator Lesley Arfin have promised to depict that most complex yet most simple of human emotions on the screen. But they don’t promise a happy ending, which makes the quasi-comedy at times a nerve-wracking experience. Perhaps that’s because the show remains firmly grounded in the real world, where happy endings are rarely a guarantee.

Movie Review – Get a Job (2016)

Get a Job, 2016.

Directed by Dylan Kidd.

Starring Miles Teller, Anna Kendrick, Bryan Cranston, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Nicholas Braun, Brandon T. Jackson, Alison Brie, Jorge Gargia, Jay Pharoah, Bruce Davison, Ravi Patel, Aaron Hill, Seth Morris, Marc Maron, John C. McGinley, Marcia Gay Harden, Greg Germann, Cameron Richardson, and John Cho.

Synopsis:

Life after college graduation is not exactly going as planned for Will and Jillian who find themselves lost in a sea of increasingly strange jobs. But with help from their family, friends and coworkers they soon discover that the most important (and hilarious) adventures are the ones that we don’t see coming.

Get a Job‘s very first joke is a freeze-frame shot of Miles Teller’s character as a child, surrounded by his family on the toilet after dropping his first deuce, delivering a voiceover monologue about receiving congratulations and physical rewards for every non-accomplishment in life.

Film Review: ‘Get a Job’

Film Review: ‘Get a Job’
Hectic but unfunny, “Get a Job” has had a difficult history: It was shot four years ago but sat on the shelf, presumably due to big changes at CBS Films. That means its satire of employment-world anxiety is already somewhat dated, though on the plus side, its various cast members (including then-little-known lead Miles Teller) have since seen their marquee value strengthen. Not much of that will matter, however, as the pic’s strenuously misfired mix of broadly treated social issues and uninspired comedic raunch is being kick-dropped with little fanfare into VOD platforms and scattered theatrical gigs by Lionsgate Premiere. The roll call of familiar on-screen talents should make this a decent home-format seller, though it’s nobody’s finest hour.

The first produced screenplay by Kyle Pennekamp and Scott Turpel may well have seemed bright and busy on paper, but the end result looks all too much like

Halfway Mark: The Best TV Episodes of 2014 (So Far), Part 2

Girls, “Two Plane Rides”

Written by Lena Dunham

Directed by Lena Dunham

Aired March 23rd, 2014

Do you remember how last season’s Girls run ended? Well this season things culminated in an entirely different tone. This time, there were no grand gestures or fireworks. Season three isn’t quite as dark as season two, but man is the finale rough. If the season two finale frustrated fans because it suggested that Hannah might be too dependent on the man in her life, the season three finale seems intent on underlining that Hannah’s ready to move on, with or without Adam. And she isn’t the only one moving on, but she seems to be the only one moving in the right direction: Hannah gets into the country’s best grad school, Adam gives a truly “bad” performance in his Broadway debut, Marnie finds herself in another destructive relationship, Shosh

Review: 'Parks and Recreation' - 'The Wall'

Review: 'Parks and Recreation' - 'The Wall'
A review of tonight's "Parks and Recreation" coming up just as soon as I listen to a Ted talk by the color beige... On the whole, I didn't find "The Wall" nearly as successful as last week's "Anniversaries," even though both spent a lot of time on the Pawnee-Eagleton conflict. Ron bringing his son John (middle name redacted) to work was fun — and the fact that the birth happened off camera, as a complete surprise to Leslie and the others, fits both Ron Swanson's philosophy regarding personal information and the show's tendency to race through big life cycle events as quickly as possible — but there was too much Jamm, too much Craig (who works best in concentrated doses), and I'm in general less fond of episodes built largely around how terrible the people of Pawnee and/or Eagleton are. I understand that in this case, it was supposed to provide

Watch 'Parks and Recreation's' digital series 'The Hapley Group' debut

Ever wonder what airs from 2:45 to 6:15 a.m. on Pawnee's public access? Why, a news magazine hosted by Perd Hapley, of course.

NBC has released the first episode of "The Hapley Group," their "Parks and Recreation" digital series meant to satisfy fans' cravings while the sitcom breaks for the Winter Olympics and, boy, is it a heaping helping of Hapley.

In the episode, everyone's favorite newscaster (played by Jay Jackson) sits down with some of Pawnee's brightest luminaries -- Joan Callamezzo (Mo Collins), Crazy Ira (Matt Besser), The Douche (Nick Kroll) and a new character, conservative pundit Mike Patterson (Seth Morris), host of "Eagleton Now" -- to chew the fat on the topics of the day.

Not only do we learn that Perd believes Obamacare is short for Alabamacare, but we're also treated to a commercial for the Pawnee Farmers' Market After Dark, featuring the sultry Chardbodies.

Watch: 'The Hapley Group' Is A Perd-Centric 'Parks and Rec' Webisode
NBC has already provided the world with a "Friday Night Lights"/"Parenthood" crossover thanks to its Olympics hiatus digital series "Friday Night at the Luncheonette," and now it's offering a "Parks and Recreation" web-only installment featuring a look at "The Hapley Group," a roundtable talk show "featuring Pawnee, Indiana's foremost pundits." Perd Hapley (Jay Jackson), naturally, is the host, and Joan Callamezzo (Mo Collins) is one of the guests providing absolutely no useful insight into the issues at hand. Seth Morris, new to the series, appears as Eagleton conservative Mike Patterson, and Matt Besser and Nick Kroll reprise their roles as shock jocks Crazy Ira and The Douche. It's very funny, but the commercial in the middle, for the Pawnee Farmer's Market/Chardbodies, steals the show. Check out the video below:

'Parenthood' gets 'Friday Night Lights' crossover in new web series

"Parenthood" has seen its fair share of "Friday Night Lights" alumni make appearances on the show (both are executive produced by Jason Katims), but never have they played their characters from the beloved former NBC series. Until now.

NBC announced on Monday (Feb. 10) that "Parenthood" would be getting a four-part digital series, "Friday Night at the Luncheonette," as a way of keeping viewers engaged in the series during the 2014 Winter Olympics hiatus. The series will follow Amber (Mae Whitman) as she watches after cousin Max (Max Burkholder) while working after hours at the studio.

During her adventures, "Fnl" stars Jesse Plemons and Derek Phillips reprise their roles of Landry Clarke and Billy Riggins, respectively, showing up as the band Crucifictorious. (And presumably explaining how Billy came to be part of the band.) Phillips has appeared on "Parenthood" as a different character in the past, so continuity sticklers would be advised to look the other way.

Maureen Ryan: Disappointment & Delight: Another Look At 'Go On' & 'The Mindy Project'
A couple of freshman comedies starring well-known actors are providing instructive lessons in how -- and how not -- to deploy a lead character.

"Go On" (Tuesdays at 9 p.m. Et on NBC), which stars Matthew Perry as a grief-group participant, has blossomed into an enjoyable little gem. I won't make any grand claims for "Go On" -- it's still way too early for that -- but what's reassuring is that I don't think the NBC comedy would make any grand claims for itself. "Go On" is just plugging along and using the strengths of its star and its talented ensemble cast judiciously to create comedy that is melancholy, surreal and pleasingly goofy. I'm eager to see more (like "Mindy," "Go On" has gotten a full-season order).

"The Mindy Project" (Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. Et on Fox), on the other hand, is a puzzling disappointment. It's not a good

Fall TV Preview: Go On

Direct from the pages of our brand new, just released, first annual, Fall TV Preview eBook appropriately titled “Thank Goodness It’s Fall” comes a closer look at NBC’s new Matthew Perry vehicle, Go On.

Premieres: Tuesdays September 11 at 9Pm on NBC (Global in Canada).

In A Nutshell: A group of wacky misfits are brought together each week by their study group… er, support group. (Just try to not compare it to a tamer Community. Double-dog dare you.)

Names You’ll Know: Something tells us you’ve heard of this young upstart, Matthew Perry (Friends), who plays sportscaster Ryan King. Laura Benanti (The Playboy Club) is the leader of the group, while such kinda-familiar faces as Julie White (Grace Under Fire), Tyler James White (Everybody Hates Chris), Sarah Baker (In Gayle We Trust) and Seth Morris (Children’S Hospital) comprise his fellow transitioners, as they’re known.

Are ‘Go On’ and ‘Animal Practice’ worth your time?

As my colleague Kate Kulzick pointed out last week, NBC has chosen to use the boost in ratings they’ve gained from their exclusive Us airing of the 2012 Summer Olympics to try and give some of their new shows a running start. Among the crowd that they’re hoping gains, and retains, an audience from the Olympics are two half-hour comedies; Animal Practice, about a cranky veterinarian and the staff of his hospital, and Go On, about a sportscaster and the members of his group therapy session. Intrigued at the promise of new comedies from NBC, which has, in recent years, created interesting shows such as Community, Parks and Recreation, and 30 Rock, I decided to see what the pilots of these shows promised for the future.

Animal Practice

From first glance, this show is seemingly a tired retread of a lot of things we’ve seen before, with no real addition.

Mark Lashley: Negotiating the Rules of a New Medium with Comedy Bang! Bang!

  • Aol TV.
It's taken half a season of growth, but IFC's Comedy Bang! Bang! has become essential viewing for fans of the craft of comedy. Maybe not as essential as, say, Louie, which Patton Oswalt notes is the truest representation of a working comedian's lifestyle ever caught on film. But CBB is perhaps TV's most interesting comedy in terms of displaying jokes in process, in a paradoxical comedic space where even the most serendipitous improvised moments are carefully presented.

Much of that credit goes to host and creator Scott Aukerman, who has a unique perspective informed by his time as a writer and sometime cast member on the seminal Mr. Show, and his years spent developing CBB from a weekly stage show, to a local Los Angeles radio program (Comedy Death Ray Radio), to a popular podcast, and now to television. Throughout that time, Aukerman has cultivated meaningful relationships with seemingly everyone in the comedy community,

Ology Interview: Scott Aukerman (Aka Hot Saucerman, Hot Soccermom)

  • TVology
I have been listening to Comedy Bang Bang for years. The essential podcast, originally titled after the comedy show Comedy Death Ray, is run by host Scott Aukerman. Over the years, Aukerman has gotten scores of the best comedians around to come on his show, both as themselves and as characters. The result? Aural pleasure that will have you laughing out loud on the subway like a crazy person.

I was thrilled with the announcement that IFC had picked up the podcast to turn into a television show. Aukerman, along with "band leader" Reggie Watts, bring their own dose of surrealism, irreverence and fresh comedy to the show along with many of your favorite actors and comedians. I'll post the review of that soon (Spoiler Alert: It's Great).

I had to really calm myself before I interviewed Aukerman, due to the fact that I might accidentally propose marriage or offer
