‘SNL’s Kenan Thompson Developing NBC Sitcom, Is He Next to Go?

The current season of 'SNL' has braved the departures of Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig and Abby Elliott, with Jason Sudeikis and Seth Meyers rumored to follow, but can it handle another?  That friends, is the question we face after learning that 'SNL' vet Kenan Thompson and executive producer Lorne Michael have begun development of a new NBC sitcom, with Thompson set to star.  What premise does the sitcom take, and would it take Kenan away from the long-running sketch comedy series?

NBC’s ‘Hannibal’ Casts Bryan Fuller Vet as Dr. Chilton

NBC’s ‘Mockingbird Lane’ Could Have Been Way Scarier

As anyone who ever watched 'Pushing Daisies' well knows, Bryan Fuller is the man to go to when you want distinctive visuals on a TV budget.  For that, and other reasons, we regret that Fuller's 'Munsters' reboot 'Mockingbird Lane' never managed to make it off the ground apart from its pilot airing as a Halloween special, however successful it may have been.  So while NBC obviously didn't share Fuller's vision of 'Mockingbird Lane,' would you believe it could have been far darker and more disturbing?  Check out the original concept photos for the re-booted series inside!

NBC Orders More ‘Guys With Kids’ Episodes, Not Helped By ‘Whitney’

While a number of NBC viewers still find themselves inside the darkest timeline, a world where NBC pushes 'Community' back to February, and slots 'Whitney's second season in with the network's increasingly three-camera lineup, it seems 'Guys With Kids' isn't going anywhere quite yet.  The peacock has officially ordered additional episodes of the Jimmy Fallon-produced series, though not quite for a full-season pickup.  So, how many more episodes will we see, and why isn't 'Whitney' going to be of any help?

Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Anne Heche Making ‘Bad Judge’ Sitcom For NBC

Sadly, outside of the occasional Old Milwaukee commercial, occasional 'SNL' appearance, or maybe even the latest episode of 'Bitch Hunter,' we're unlikely to see Will Ferrell take any regular presence on the small screen again.  That's okay though, considering the imminent arrival of 'Anchorman 2' with director Adam McKay, and an upcoming NBC series with both behind the camera!  And hey, why not throw in a little Anne Heche for good measure?  Who's ready for 'Bad Judge?'

‘Smash’ Season 2 Casts Liza Minnelli as Herself, Of Course

Is Liza Minnelli embarking on a comeback tour?  Sure, plenty of theatre geeks would argue that she never left, but between recent returns to the 'Arrested Development' reunion and an upcoming guest spot on the second season of NBC's hit musical drama 'Smash,' we have to wonder.  The legendary singer and daughter of Hollywood icon Judy Garland will make an appearance in the new season, laying who else but herself, but what could Liza Minnelli bring to the characters of 'Smash?'
