NEW YORK (AP) — “Supergirl” flies from CBS to the CW network’s supernatural-heavy lineup on Mondays this fall, when the network will also premiere a romantic comedy about an impending apocalypse and a drama where a young detective hears the voice of her long-dead dad.
LOS ANGELES — Since she got in on the adult coloring book craze two years ago, Cheri Brown has spent more than $400 on 50 books holding intricate sketches that she embellishes with Sharpies, colored pencils and gel pens.
The second season of “Empire” ended with a cliffhanger that implied the death of at least one major character. Cliffhangers are familiar territory for the Fox drama, but it didn’t exactly make for a satisfying finale.
The late Dick Streissguth spent most of his life serving Hazel Dell, the community he called home, so it’s fitting that the first local parade to proceed without him is themed “Celebrating Service.” That’s about the same as celebrating the man himself.
It’s always rough when a TV show is on the bubble this time of year, especially when it’s a long-running series with devoted viewers. If producers have no idea whether they’re going to be renewed or canceled, they’re forced to come up with a finale that satisfies either possibility.
LOS ANGELES — Any doubts that Bryan Cranston belongs on the shortlist of America’s greatest living actors are vanquished in an early moment from “All the Way.” The HBO biopic chronicles the chaos thrust upon — and generated by — Lyndon Baines Johnson in the period between the assassination of John F. Kennedy and his own election as president in 1964.
Two years ago, “Neighbors” writers Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O’Brien, along with director Nicholas Stoller, reinvented the classic college party movie by pitting the frat guys against the young parents next door. It was a raunchy-but-sweet rumination on getting older and growing out of party mode, a refreshing take on the college movie formula. With “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising,” they’ve flipped the script, creating a feminist party classic that’s completely current and doesn’t skimp on any of the wild humor. It’s also better than its predecessor.
