Tim Conway, ‘Carol Burnett Show’ and ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ Star, Dies at 85
Tim Conway, the Emmy-winning comedian and actor who memorably starred in “McHale’s Navy” in the 1960s and “The Carol Burnett Show” in the ’70s, has died. He was 85.

Conway died around 8:45 a.m. Tuesday morning at a Los Angeles-area hospital after dealing with complications from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, according to family representative Howard Bragman.

The comedian, who also voiced Barnacle Boy on the animated hit “SpongeBob SquarePants,” won two of his six Emmys for guest appearances on the ’90s sitcom “Coach” and a second season episode of “30 Rock” in 2008.

But he is best remembered for his outrageous work on “The Carol Burnett Show,” including characters such as the Oldest Man and Mr. Tudball, a badly toupéed businessman who becomes increasingly frustrated by Burnett’s dimwitted secretary Mrs. Wiggins.

TV Review: ‘L.A.’s Finest’

  • Variety
“L.A.’s Finest” isn’t just a cop show. It’s a gambit — a bet placed by cable provider Spectrum that by providing not just access to HBO and Hgtv but original programming of its own, it’ll stand out. The series, a Jerry Bruckheimer production set within the universe of his “Bad Boys” film franchise, is the beginning of a stream of on-demand Spectrum Originals programming that will also include, eventually, a comeback for “Mad About You.”

The idea of providing some added value to subscribers through original programming is a reasonable enough one (why not get in a game with so many players already?). But this particular show seems ill-suited to its format: Meant to live on an on-demand platform, this drama seems oddly unlikely to have been specifically demanded by anyone at all. A tonally disastrous half-comedy, half-melodrama about policing that draws in cartel politics and family angst,

Charter’s Katherine Pope On “Quietly Revolutionary” ‘L.A.’s Finest’, Spectrum Originals’ “Clean” Dealmaking & Plans For Curated Slate

  • Deadline
A year ago, Charter Communications’ new original content division headed by Katherine Pope made its first major programming move, picking up L.A.’s Finest as the maiden series for Charter’s platform Spectrum Originals. The Sony Pictures TV/Bruckheimer TV-produced drama starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, an offshoot from the Bad Boys movie franchise, started as a pilot at NBC last season, with Charter stepping in after the pilot did not go to series at the broadcast network.

Since then, Pope and her team have commissioned several other series including a Mad About You follow-up limited series with original stars Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt; an Atlanta Olympics bombing-centered second installment of the true-crime series Manhunt, whose first season, Unabomber, aired on Discovery; and British racing drama co-production Curfew.

‘Frasier’: Kelsey Grammer Seen Holding a Script, Prompts Reboot Speculation

‘Frasier’: Kelsey Grammer Seen Holding a Script, Prompts Reboot Speculation
Much like what is dead may never die, what aired for more than 10 seasons on broadcast television may never really finish airing. The latest example may very well be “Frasier,” the Kelsey Grammer-led “Cheers” spinoff that built a dedicated following all its own for the better part of a decade on NBC.

A Wednesday morning TMZ report showed Grammer walking around London carrying a script with what appears to be the iconic title logo emblazoned on the front. Grammer’s representatives did not respond to a request for comment, but the picture is the latest part of a trickle of speculation that has continued in the wake of other high-profile continuations of beloved sitcoms, including “Will and Grace,” “Roseanne,” and “Murphy Brown.”

At last summer’s Television Critics Association press tour, Grammer said that he’d be open to returning to the character, but only if the script was something worth coming back for.

John Oliver recruited Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston to go “full Walter White” on Sunday’s Last Week Tonight — tapping into the drug lord’s stone-faced menace for the role of Richard Sackler, the former president and chairman of Oxycontin developer Purdue Pharma. Michael Keaton, Michael K. Williams (The Wire) and Richard Kind (Mad About You) also played the billionaire businessman during the segment, an update on the U.S. opioid epidemic that resulted in 47,000 deaths in 2017.

Rachel Brosnahan aiming to be the 1st repeat comedy actress Emmy champ not named Julia Louis-Dreyfus since 2001

Rachel Brosnahan aiming to be the 1st repeat comedy actress Emmy champ not named Julia Louis-Dreyfus since 2001
Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) has a tall order at the Emmys. The reigning Best Comedy Actress champ will have to defeat the thus far undefeated “Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus to retain her title. If Brosnahan does pull it off, she’d be the first non-jld repeat winner for the same show since 2001.

That year, Patricia Heaton (“Everybody Loves Raymond”) nabbed her second straight Emmy during the twice-delayed, post-9/11 ceremony. For 10 years after that, the category saw 10 different winners for 10 different shows — including Louis-Dreyfus for “The Old Adventures of New Christine” — before she started her six-year “Veep” reign in 2012.

1. Jennifer Aniston, “Friends” (2002)

2. Debra Messing, “Will & Grace” (2003)

3. Sarah Jessica Parker, “Sex and the City” (2004)

4. Felicity Huffman, “Desperate Housewives” (2005)

5. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, “The New Adventures of Old Christine” (2006)

6. America Ferrera, “Ugly Betty” (2007)

7. Tina Fey, “30 Rock” (2008)

‘Abby’s’ Star Natalie Morales: ‘TV Hasn’t Represented Many People for a Long Time’
Natalie Morales is known for scene stealing work on television series such as “The Middleman,” “Parks and Recreation,” “The Grinder” and “Santa Clarita Diet” but now she is stepping into the spotlight as the lead and titular character on new NBC sitcom “Abby’s.”

What does being the lead of a show in today’s television landscape mean to you?

I have this great opportunity that people like me haven’t traditionally had — literally never. I’m the first Cuban female lead of a network sitcom. I don’t take that lightly. But as far as the No. 1 on the call sheet thing, the responsibility I see there is to the people I work with — the crew and the cast. Everybody says the fish rots from the head down, and it’s so true. I’ve been very, very lucky to work on really great shows with really great people

‘Barry’ Season Two Review: Must the Show Always Go On?

‘Barry’ Season Two Review: Must the Show Always Go On?
There was a glorious moment in television about five years ago, when it seemed like the medium was on the verge of another evolutionary breakthrough. Shows like American Horror Story, True Detective and Fargo suggested the birth of a new form, the anthology miniseries. It would neatly split the advantages of television and film, really digging into the characters and the story without overstaying its welcome, and it would be more financially viable than the traditional miniseries, because it would return year after year, just with a new setting.

A review of this week’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, “Gintars,” coming up just as soon as I’m too sad to drink duck broth…

Jake and Amy‘s marriage has put slightly more emphasis on them as them as professional partners this season. This makes sense, and it’s been fun to see the variations in their relationship over the many episodes where they’ve shared the A-story. But that focus on the newlyweds has come at the expense of Jake’s best friend and other primary work sidekick, Charles, who

9 Plot Twists That Hurt Iconic 90s Sitcoms (And 11 That Saved Them)

The edgy young people of today despise laugh track sitcoms because it apparently insults their intelligences to be “told when they should laugh.” However, this writer here loves the multi-cam sitcom style and continues to favor those shows. Up until the late-2000s, sitcoms were primarily multi-cam outings until popular shows like The Office and 30 Rock brought a change with single camera sitcoms becoming a thing. Back in the ‘90s, however, laugh track sitcoms were still all the rage (do young people still talk like this?) and the popular shows were all in this format.

Friends, Seinfeld, Mad About You, and a whole lot more used this formula, which made even their storylines resemble one another. Due to this, you could have similar plot-lines in these shows and similar plot twists. In those sitcoms, the plot twists were generally part of tried-and-tested tropes, which would resurface in every show in one shape or form.

Mad About You Reboot is Official and Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser Are In!

Mad About You was one of my very favorite shows when it was on, and especially in the years after, while it was still highly syndicated. I was a pretty young kid when I watched it, but I loved the dynamic between Paul (Paul Reiser) and Jamie (Helen Hunt), and was so in love with the fun couple who lived in New York with their dog, Murray, and watched movies and had a fun and humorous relationship. I have always loved Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt separately throughout their careers, and I felt like this show was just magic. With all that being said, I also have to say I Hated the series finale. It made me so mad and sad that I just ignored the ending in my brain.

Which is why I am so excited that Mad About You is being rebooted! Another series that I loved, but
