Steve Buscemi In, Owen Wilson Out as TBS' Daniel Radcliffe-Led Comedy Miracle Workers Recasts Co-Lead
It seems God had a different plan for Miracle Workers.

Everybody dance now! Between 1989 and 1990 this song was one of the all-time favorites on the dance floor and in most dance halls for various events.

In 1990 it managed to reach #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 an R&B singles chart. Even now when it comes on a lot of people won’t deny that it makes them want to get up out of their seat and get to

Ted Danson is Sneakily Reinventing Himself on ‘The Good Place’
At the start of Chapter 18 of “The Good Place,” Ted Danson’s Michael — the architect of a human torture chamber who’s recently switched sides in an attempt to help his former captives — laments how his new bosses are running The Bad Place.
“It really tucks my nuggets,” he says. “I worked so hard on my torture ideas, and theirs are so basic. These millennials, they have no work ethic.”
When Tahani (Jameela Jamil) and Jason (Manny Jacinto), who are both around the millennial age, give him a puzzled look, he continues. “Oh sorry, a millennial is someone who has only been torturing people for a thousand years.”
But the pun-like wordplay above sparked a troubling thought. Considering the middling “Good Place” ratings and the recent history of its star…
Do real millennials not get Ted Danson?
Now, to be fair, “The Good Place” ratings aren’t bad. In fact, »

Supernatural Review: Jack Is A “Rising Son”
We’re now in week 2 of Season 13 of Supernatural, and we’ve now closed most of the loose ends (I say most because…still no Cas!) and “The Rising Son” has established the new status quo. Now that fans have a good idea what this season (or at least this arc) will look like, the mythology can settle in, fan-favorite characters can return, and new, interesting dynamics can be set up. I find the dynamic of Sam and Dean as two parents with opposite viewpoints really interesting, mostly because it’s so true to character. Dean has always been a “kill it

‘The Walking Dead’: AMC Launches Online Campaign to Make Season 8 Available on Hulu
If AMC has your email address, you might have gotten a strange message on Thursday evening, warning you that if you want to watch “The Walking Dead” this Sunday night, you can watch it “everywhere” — except Hulu.
The message came with a link to the website wheretowatchtwd.com, but the site is not a viewing guide to your options for the upcoming Season 8 premiere (which also happens to be the 100th episode). Instead, it’s a form asking Hulu customers to enter their information: “To ensure you don’t miss the new season of the biggest show on TV, let Hulu know you want The Walking Dead!”
The campaign is most likely related to Hulu’s live TV streaming offering. That service includes major channels from almost every conglomerate, including Disney/ABC, NBCUniversal, CBS, 21st Century Fox, and Turner. But missing from that package: AMC Networks’ channels, which include AMC, »

10 Things You Didn’t Know about “The Gate”
In 1987 a movie came out that was deemed an instant horror classic since it did pretty good on a modest budget and was scary enough to give kids and even adults nightmares after watching it. Looking back at The Gate now it definitely took full advantage of the special effects of the time and yet still managed to bring a cheesy subject into the limelight with a vaguely serious lean that made people treat it as something other than a campy horror flick. Comparing it to anything made today isn’t fair obviously since the advent of CGI and even
