This Is Us' Milo Ventimiglia buries the hatchet with his Crock-Pot nemesis

Last week’s This Is Us ended on a big cliffhanger, as the show almost certainly revealed that the culprit behind the long-foreshadowed death of Pearson family patriarch Jack was a malfunctioning “slow cooker” (or Crock-Pot, as those of us who aren’t afraid of getting sued for associating fiery death with a beloved…

This Is Us ends its solid first season with an episode that disappoints

C

This Is Us pulled off a rare feat: It pissed people off by not killing off a character. No, Jack didn’t die, and instead of getting an end, we got the promise of a beginning. Instead of death, we got rebirth. I wasn’t a fan of this finale for a couple of reasons, but the most important one is that the episode hinged…

The weirdly ingratiating Stars Hollow: The Musical hits the “Summer” stage

B

Give or take a “lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer” episode, we really haven’t seen too much of Stars Hollow in the off-season, so there are parts of this “Summer” episode that are kind of a revelation. Unfortunately, the titular girls at the pool shows the duo at their most insufferable. What’s with the body-shaming on…

The Gilmore Girls are back in the full trailer for the Netflix revival

The first full trailer for the Gilmore Girls revival—Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life—is here, and with it comes banter, unhealthy food choices, and some soul searching. Also, Kirk’s at Friday Night Dinner for some reason, and we’re very intrigued as to why. Yes, there’s a hefty dose of Stars Hollow quirk here, but…

This Is Us trailer shatters viewing records, probably thanks to Jess Mariano’s butt

As networks try to determine the precise formula that allowed the This Is Us trailer to rack up a staggering number of views, we want to make one thing very clear: It’s not the sappy set-up, it’s not the show’s universal message, and it’s not the folksy music. It’s 100 percent Jess Mariano’s butt.

Kristen Bell, Milo Ventimiglia, and some time travelers star in NBC’s new promo trailers

ABC went promo crazy yesterday, releasing little previews of all the new shows it’s using to make us forget about all of the old shows it cancelled last week, and now NBC has joined in the fun with some promos of its own. There aren’t as many as there was for ABC, but NBC didn’t pull a Red Wedding on its lineup and…

Milo Ventimiglia wants to help you date in the digital age in his new webseries

Tweeting about your date, Facebook-stalking your crush, sharing your passwords with your significant other—these are just a few of the relatable situations presented in the trailer for Relationship Status, a new webseries about the perils of dating in the era of social media. Made up of a dozen 11-minute episodes, the…

The final edition of our Gilmore Girls revival cast list: Sookie’s Return

Well, this has been fun, but with new giant cast lists for other TV revivals popping up seemingly every day (looking at you, Twin Peaks), we must close the door on this massive, prospective chart. We’re happy we get to do so on an up note, now that Melissa McCarthy has officially returned to the Gilmore Girls set,…
