Marvel might be killing off its Netflix shows, but Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. will live on through 2020

Ensuring that we’ll have to spend yet another year laboriously typing out every damn period in Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. whenever the topic of still-extant superhero shows comes up, ABC announced today that it’s already ordered up a seventh season of the long-running MCU spin-off series, before its sixth has…

Divided nation comes together to agree nobody wants to watch Alec Baldwin's stupid talk show

Regardless of how America’s political fortunes shift and turn tonight, at least there’s one thing we can collectively hold on to: Alec Baldwin is having a pretty lousy evening, too. Variety reports this evening that Baldwin’s ABC talk show has just been unceremoniously dumped from its place of pride on the network’s…

It's one misunderstanding after another on this week's Modern Family

B

“On The Same Paige” begins with a misunderstanding. Claire wakes up and comes to the kitchen, grabbing Phil’s ass and making a horrendous joke about “peaches” that only a coupled married for so long could make. The cute/cringeworthy moment gets worse when “Phil” is revealed to be one of his students. He’s started…

Modern Family resolves its love triangle, and finds comfort in familiarity

B

After spending much of last week’s episode indulging in rather meaningless storylines, this week’s episode of Modern Family, “Torn Between Two Lovers,” gets back to one of the season’s predominant bits of conflict, which is the love triangle developing between Haley, her boyfriend Arvin, and her old and incredibly…

ABC moves forward with NYPD Blue sequel series about Sipowicz's son 

In what seems a little like the TV equivalent of releasing an album of “new” music shortly after a musician’s death, ABC has begun developing a pilot for an NYPD Blue sequel series just over six months after the death of NYPD Blue co-creator Steven Bochco. This comes from Variety, which says the new show will revolve…

Laurie Metcalf takes the lead in ABC's first look at The Conners 

The Roseanne-less Roseanne spin-off The Conners is staying weirdly mum on plot details, but a new teaser posted to the show’s Twitter account offers a teensy peek into whatever ABC is cooking up. The good news? It’s heavy on the weary, neurotic Aunt Jackie, played here by the hilarious (and Oscar-nominated) Laurie…

Roseanne Barr claims her character will die from an "opioid overdose" on The Conners

During a recent interview on YouTube show Walk Away (via Entertainment Weekly), Roseanne Barr claimed that her Roseanne character is going to die off-screen from “an opioid overdose” on ABC’s rebooted revival show The Conners. Barr called the decision “cynical and horrible,” noting that she had decided to introduce a…

How did Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. go from pop-culture behemoth to scrappy underdog? 

In 100 Episodes, The A.V. Club examines the shows that made it to that number, considering both how they advanced and reflected the medium and what contributed to their popularity and/or longevity. This entry covers Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., which has run for five seasons and 11o episodes from 2013 to now,…

Everything about ABC's Roseanne spin-off The Conners is TOP SECRET for some reason

When ABC decided to reboot its Roseanne revival without its eponymous lead (who had been fired for being racist on Twitter), the path seemed pretty straightforward: Just do everything exactly the same as they would’ve had Roseanne Barr not been fired, but replace everything she would’ve said with someone else saying…
