NBC to cancel 'Bad Judge,' 'A to Z' with zombie twist


Bad Judge has been disbarred and it’s R.I.P. for A to Z as two more fall shows have fallen prey to the broadcast ax. Only this time, there’s a Halloween-appropriate twist.

NBC announced Friday it will not produce any more episodes of the two Thursday night comedies beyond their initial orders. Bad Judge has shot 10 episodes; A to Z has shot 11. Five episodes each have aired. Both shows will finish production on their 13 episodes and all will air, but NBC has confirmed it will not order episodes beyond that. So the duo are sort of like zombies for the next eight weeks. READ FULL STORY

Alyssa Milano talks about Savi's 'Mistresses' ending

Earlier this month, fans of ABC’s Mistresses were delighted when they heard that the show had been picked up—then shocked to learn that Alyssa Milano would not be returning to the series. (Milano chose not to move with the show when it relocated to Vancouver move because of her family.)

When EW caught up with Milano this week to discuss her role on Project Runway All Stars, we also asked for any updates on Mistresses season 3. “I don’t know what is happening with that—I just know that I am not going back,” she said. “I don’t know how they’re going to wrap it up.” READ FULL STORY

Fall sitcom bummers continue


Remember a few years ago when broadcast comedies were hot again?

That feels like a long time ago. The final new fall comedy of the season debuted Thursday night and the overnight ratings told a familiar story. CBS’ The McCarthys launched to 8.8 million viewers and a 1.9 preliminary rating among adults 18-49. That’s not nearly as weak as some sitcoms this fall (and we’ll get to two of those in a moment). But CBS has the highest benchmarks in the genre, and McCarthys is down 42 percent from last season’s premiere of The Millers and down 34 percent from the last debut of Two and a Half Men in the slot.

Speaking of which, Men was The McCarthys lead in and came back to a good rating overall for its final season (11 million 2.7), though it’s also the veteran comedy’s lowest premiere ever (that sounds contradictory, but it’s also right). The Big Bang Theory (16.2 million, 4.1) kicked off CBS’ night, hitting a season low in its re-claimed time slot (the rating will go up in the coming weeks, I suspect, once more fans realize it’s moved). Some good news: Mom (11.7 million, 2.7) was up 8 percent from last fall’s premiere to a series high. All these numbers are also likely inflated due to some NFL pre-emption. READ FULL STORY

Benedict Cumberbatch: Yeah, Sherlock Holmes is pretty great at sex

There’s no denying it: Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock Holmes is the object of affection for just about anyone who watches BBC’s Sherlock, whether its Molly’s unrequited love on the show itself or the legion of Tumblr fans who turn every wink, smirk, and step into a GIF-able moment.

But for all the love Holmes receives, he hasn’t exactly returned the favor. More bluntly, Holmes has never had sex on the show. Not with an actual proposed love interest, nor with Watson, to the dismay of all “Johnlock” fans. But while viewers shouldn’t expect a Sherlock sex scene anytime soon, Cumberbatch recently discussed what Sherlock would be like in bed—and readers may need a cigarette after some of his comments.
