The Crown, UnREAL gets a new suitor, and The early days of The Daily Show.

Thursday, November 3rd 2016
 

People Talking About TV

“In the summer of ‘98, when we announced that Jon was going to take over The Daily Show, we had a little press conference in the lobby of the old Comedy Central offices. And Stephen Colbert showed up, as a member of the press representing The Daily Show, wanting to know why he didn’t get the job.” Vanity Fair has the oral history of the first year of The Daily Show after Jon Stewart took over. (I still can’t believe he left the show just before this total shitshow of an election. Though for his health, that’s probably a good thing.)

“And then there are those personalities who’ve managed to make the most of the Campaign from Hell, folks who emerged from the debris of this nasty, brutish, and not-so-short 19-month crusade better off than when it began.” Check out Vulture’s slideshow of the 20 TV personalities who at least got something out of the current election cycle. SNL’s Kate McKinnon wins this round for sure.
 

The Business

Tired of taking on The Bachelor, and whatever it was that they tried to do in season two, UnREAL will have a female suitor for the third season, which I approve. That’s so many more male contestants for Quinn and Rachel to manipulate.

Probably because it went on so long so everybody had hours to tune in, game seven of the World Series had the highest ratings for a baseball game in 25 years. And also the SportsCenter ad they made for this morning is kind of a classic.

Casting: Nina Dobrev will guest star on Comedy Central’s Workaholics. Ryan Hansen will play the body that Mindy gets temporarily stuck in, in an episode of The Mindy Project titled “If I Was Born A White Man." He will always be Dick Casablancas to me, so this is perfectly cast. Kevin Can Wait lost a showrunner, but got Adam Sandler as a guest star. Lexa Doig will play Talia al Ghul on Arrow, which should be fun.

The good news is that Netflix has renewed Longmire, but the bad news is that the show will end after the sixth season.

NBC ordered three more episodes of Timeless, for a total of 16.

John Logan, who just wrapped up Penny Dreadful, is in as the showrunner for The Nix, which stars Meryl Streep and is produced by J.J. Abrams.

In Development: Hmm. The CW is developing Straight Outta Heaven, which is described as “Touched by an Angel-meets-Ghost with an urban twist,” and “a faith-based, hip-hop-infused guardian angel drama.” It’s from John Singleton. I don’t know about this one. The CW is also developing Marlowe, a “character based procedural” based on the Raymond Chandler character. It will be set in Los Angeles in 1937, and is based on the real life African American investigator that inspired Chandler. I’d watch that. Showtime decided to stay on brand and develop a drama based on American Gigolo.

 

What To Watch

It’s a slow week for new stuff, so I will take this as a hint to get caught up with some of the excellent TV I missed while I was on vacation. I still haven't watched a single episode of the new Black Mirror! For shame.

The one big show this weekend is Netflix’s The Crown, which arrives tomorrow. Netflix reportedly spent a lot of money (like a whole lot) on this drama about the first ten years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, and according to this review, you can see quite a bit of it onscreen. I read two other reviews of the show, they are here and here, and they are both really positive, so that’s a relief. I hate boring costume dramas, but I love a well made one, so this is going on my to-do list for the weekend. Here's the super lush trailer.

Benedict Cumberbatch is hosting SNL this week, which should be interesting, and the promo is over here. Solange is this week's musical guest.

The National Geographic miniseries about a manned mission to Mars doesn’t arrive for a couple of weeks, but you can watch the first episode of Mars right now.

Atlanta ended its run this week, and the reviews for the whole run were fantastic. I am a few episodes behind, so now I can sit down and catch up.

 

Odds and Ends

Lots of people would like you to know that Parks and Recreation accurately predicted the Cubs winning the World Series.

Ryan Reynolds came on Conan to promote a bunch of fake projects, including The Notebook 2, which recreates the rain scene. With Ryan Reynolds and Conan O’Brien.

Are you bummed that Rick and Morty isn’t back yet? Well then these short claymation clips where they are in well known sci-fi movies should make you happy.

Slashfilm rounded up this week’s bits and pieces for the fifth episode of Westworld, which includes fan timelines, essays about why we haven’t seen the female guests having consequence free sex with male hosts, and a long interview with Evan Rachel Wood. Good stuff.

Trailers: Here’s the first trailer for Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. Looks like the movie, which I guess is a compliment. Here’s a trailer for Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, where she interviews people who have left the church. Sign me up for this. Because nobody can see what you watched on Netflix but you, we are getting a second season of Fuller House, and now there’s a trailer.

The Honest Trailer for Sherlock is here, and thankfully it points out how it's weird that Sherlock is always sniffing things, and Moriarty is always licking things.

 


That’s a wrap for me for this week, so I am off to go catch up on Arrow, which is half a mess and half great, as usual. Thanks for reading!
