7 Facts We Learned About 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' From the TCA Press Tour

July 17th, 2014 7:30pm EDT
7 Facts We Learned About 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' From the TCA Press
Last fall, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" went from "a show that hasn't started airing" to "a show beloved by all" almost overnight. This is good. The bad is this peculiar season called "summer," when fall shows (such as "Brooklyn Nine-Nine") do not air.

But summer's end isn't too far away, which means we only have about two months and change (the season premiere is set for September 28) before "Brooklyn Nine Nine" rises anew. And in order to whet society's collective appetites, the cast and producers of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" arrived at this summer's TCA Press Tour, to discuss the show's second seas...

Laura McCreary Takes Us Inside The 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Writers Room

Laura McCreary Takes Us Inside The 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Writers
Brooklyn Nine-Nine was a surprise hit for FOX this past season, including raking in two Golden Globe Awards. So what's it like behind the scenes at the fictional 99th Precinct? BFTV sat down with writer Laura McCreary to get some insight into the show's explosion of popularity and how all the laughs come together.

"It's definitely exciting," Laura said of Brooklyn Nine-Nine's success so far. "We had no idea. Obviously FOX is always behind the show, and there was great promotion to start, but we really had no idea if people were watching, how the momentum was doing."

She called working in ...

In Command: Andre Braugher Leads ABC's 'Last Resort'

November 8th, 2012 1:15pm EST
Last Resort
Andre Braugher's role as Captain Marcus Chaplin on ABC's Last Resort is a perfect fit for the award-winning actor. He may not be a household name, but television buffs know that Braugher is one of the most commanding folks ever to have graced the small screen.

Whether it was as Detective Frank Pembleton on NBC's Homicide: Life on the Street, as Nick Atwater on FX's short-lived Thief, as Owen Thoreau on TNT's Men of a Certain Age or even in guest roles on series like House and Law & Order: SVU, very few people have the screen presence of Braugher. He's fully believable not only as som...

TNT Cancels 'Men Of A Certain Age'

July 18th, 2011 8:05am EDT
Men Of A Certain Age
Beloved comic Ray Romano's latest show Men Of A Certain Age is to be axed due to poor ratings.

The funnyman, who wrote and starred in the popular sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond for nine seasons, signed a deal with TNT in 2009 to pen the comedy, which focuses on the lives of a middle-aged man and his two college buddies, played by Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula.

However, after just two seasons, network executives have decided not to move forward with the show for another series, blaming the axing on viewing figures.

A spokesperson says, "TNT has been proud to be a part of Men of a Cer...

What Happened To The Emmy Nominations?!

July 14th, 2011 2:07pm EDT
Justified
What happened to this year's Emmy nominations? They're...actually pretty great.

I normally can't stand TV's big awards show; it seems like the same people and series get nominated all the time, with the occasional "why did that get nominated at all?" head-scratcher for variety. But the 2011 nominations were announced early Thursday morning, and while it's still a little puzzling (though let's not name names), there's a bevy of deserving names on that big list.

Here are some of my favorites:

Finally, some love for Justified: I still maintain that star Timothy Olyphant was robbed l...

‘Men Of A Certain Age’ Returns With The Great Escape June 1 2011

June 2nd, 2011 4:43pm EDT
Men Of A Certain Age
I love Men Of A Certain Age, I really do. From the theme song, the Beach Boys “When I Grow Up To Be A Man,” right through to the last moments of each episode, I am hopelessly in thrall to this trio of normal guys, with normal problems. No one is all good or all evil, in fact, to these guys, a moment of thinking about themselves rather than their loved ones is about as evil as they get. They face real situations, like how to keep a roof over their heads, or when to schedule the dreaded, over 50, colonoscopy, as a united front. They genuinely want to be good people. When they fail, they get u...

Summer Preview: 'Men Of A Certain Age'

June 1st, 2011 3:00pm EDT
Men of a Certain Age
Beginning today, TNT rolls six out all-new episodes of Men of a Certain Age, starring Ray Romano (who also co-created the series), Scott Bakula, and Andre Braugher. I'm still too young to be within the show's midlife demographic, but what works about Men is that you don't have to be of a certain age - or even a man - to appreciate what makes the show tick. The circumstances and underlying issues are common for many of us.

For example, there's a moment early on in tonight's episode ("The Great Escape") where Terry (Bakula) meets current girlfriend Erin (Melinda McGraw) for lunch, ...

My Favorite TV Police

May 28th, 2011 3:00pm EDT
The Chicago Code
There's no group of people that I love seeing on the small screen than the police. Having been there and done that, I have a certain affection for good portrayals of the men and women in law enforcement. Now that we've recently celebrated Police Week, here's my tribute to the TV cops (note: not federal agents or anything else - just cops!) who've left impressions on me over the years.

Sergeant Joe Friday (Jack Webb) and Detective Ben Gannon (Harry Morgan), NBC's Dragnet

My earliest memories of TV cops have to do with one of the most storied franchises in the genre. Thanks to Nick ...

Top 5 Most Arresting Actors

March 19th, 2011 11:00am EDT
Casino Royale
When you watch as much TV as I do, you're lucky to see a lot of great actors. But few are the ones who are so great that they make me stop and stare. They're the ones who have my undivided attention when they appear on screen. When they talk, I shut up and listen. They make my jaw drop, my heart break and my head spin. Here's a tribute to five actors who've made me say, "Why didn't I notice you sooner?"

Andre Braugher, Men of a Certain Age

The Emmy winner and Golden Globe nominee was the first actor to ever catch my attention, when I became a fan of Homicide: Life on the Street in 19...

'Men Of A Certain Age' - The Best Humanity Has To Offer

November 17th, 2010 10:37am EST
Men of a certain age
“Men of a Certain Age” must have been a tough sell. I imagine if anyone other than Ray Romano had gone into a TNT pitch meeting and attempted to sell the network on the idea of three middle aged men contending with real life problems, they’d be laughed out of the office and told to come back when they had vampires or singing teenagers.

Men of a Certain Age season one is available now on DVD

Season 2 premieres December 6 at 10/9c on TNT.

Thankfully Ray Romano was behind “Men of a Certain Age” and was able to use his considerable talents to bring this truly delightful show to the airwaves....

2010 Emmys: Who Should Win & Who Will Win

August 28th, 2010 1:00pm EDT
2010 Emmys
It’s a transitional year for the Emmys, meaning this is one of the more exciting races in recent memories. The flood of new nominees (brought on by a stellar development slate) means that we can no longer rely on the predictable Emmy voting to determine winners. Instead, this is a year where we can see many newcomers emerging and starting a whole new slate of predictable nominees.

Yes, that was a little cynical, but it’s the sad truth of the Emmys – habits are hard to break for the voters. Luckily, this year the virgin nominees have afforded them an extensive choice for brand new habits.

'House' Recap: 'Baggage'

May 11th, 2010 4:25pm EDT
House
One of the admirable things about the showrunners of House is that though it is a procedural, they enjoy playing with the formula and shoot certain episodes in a unique fashion. The first time they did this successfully was in season one with the incredible episode "Three Stories," which is still on the top five list of House episodes ever. This week's episode was a bit like that, playing with perspective and memory, and it is all about how Gregory House is going to probably have a breakdown soon. But he did that last year, you might cry. Yes, pretty much every year, actually.

Q&A: Hugh Laurie Of 'House' Talks Season 6 Expectations, Cuddy Fantasy And More

September 16th, 2009 10:00am EDT
Hugh Laurie
House ended last season with a double twist. At first it seemed like Dr. House and Cuddy finally got together and he'd kicked Vicodin. Then they revealed that their tryst was a hallucination caused by House's Vicodin addiction. The season finale showed House entering a psychiatric institution, which is where the new season will pick him up.

Hugh Laurie gave reporters a preview of House's journey to come over the summer. For years we have been analyzing House's behavior, the actor being the character's de facto defender as his real world spokesperson. The issue of whether his entertaining...

TV On DVD Recommendation: 'Homicide: Life On The Street'

March 7th, 2008 3:19pm EST
Homicide: Life On The Street
"Homicide: Life on the Street" is one of the least-watched long-running police dramas that ever aired. It is superior in every way to its contemporaries "Law & Order" and "NYPD Blue" and the modern "CSI". Picking up the mantle of realism left bare by the departure of "Hill Street Blues", "Homicide" detailed the everyday happenings in Baltimore's Homicide Division.

It was shot mainly using hand-held cameras in a style that would become the norm for gritty realistic crime dramas on both the big and small screen. The series' true ensemble cast prominently featured the excellent Andre...
