10 great reveals and moments at 'The Wire' PaleyFest reunion panel

The cast of The Wire had a whole lot of fun during Thursday’s reunion panel at New York’s Paley Center for Media.

Show co-creator David Simon, executive producer Nina Noble, cast members Michael Kenneth Williams, Wendell Pierce, Sonja Sohn, Seth Gilliam, Jim True-Frost, John Doman, Lawrence Gilliard Jr, and Jamie Hector took the stage, while surprise guests and cast members Tristan Wilds, J.D. Williams, Bob Wisdom, and Michelle Paress took seats in the audience. The show’s Brits, Dominic West and Idris Elba, were both unable to make the panel, but popped their heads in (quite literally) with video messages. HitFix TV critic Alan Sepinwall moderated the event.

The panel delved into a variety of topics Wire obsessives were frothing at the mouth to discuss, including the show’s low ratings and high acclaim—which frustrated the cast and crew—and the show’s increasingly perilous livelihood every season. The talk also covered whether Simon is interested in continuing the series, which beloved character wasn’t supposed to make it past the first season, and Williams’ initial reluctance at the focus on the dock workers in season two. Here are a few things that EW heard and saw throughout the night.

10 things we learned about 'Bob's Burgers' at its PaleyFest panel

New York’s Paley Center for Media is in the middle of its TV-centric PaleyFest, which includes several panel discussions with the casts and crews of critically beloved shows. Last night, EW caught one with the people behind Bob’s Burgers—including voice actors H. Jon Benjamin and Kristen Schaal, John Roberts, and the show’s creator, Loren Bouchard.

The hour-long conversation frequently detoured into improvisational riffing by the cast, but it also delivered some interesting information about the show. Here are ten of the best tidbits we learned.

The show works at its own pace. Its creators are willing to sacrifice the kind of up-to-the-minute timeliness of a show like South Park in order to concentrate on small details. Some episodes have taken up to a year to produce from start to finish. READ FULL STORY

'The Mindy Project' at PaleyFest: 6 things we learned about that kiss, that dance, and more

The Mindy Project is back next week! I repeat: The Mindy Project is back next week!

We’ve been patiently waiting for our Shulman & Associates fix since January, but enough is enough. After the midseason finale fireworks — as Mindy flew back to New York to get Cliff back, Danny grabbed her for a passionate mile-high make-out sesh — it’s a wonder we haven’t combusted from the anticipation. To help you hold out one more week, the Mindy cast hit PaleyFest at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre on Tuesday night for a revealing and laugh-filled panel.

PaleyFest full lineup announced: 'Lost' reunion, 'How I Met Your Mother,' and more

We already told you Veronica Mars would kick off PaleyFest 2014, the Paley Center for Media’s TV fan festival. Now, the whole schedule has been released — and if you’re still not over Lost, you’re going to want to book some tickets to Los Angeles, stat.

'Veronica Mars', 'American Horror Story: Coven' set for PaleyFest 2014

PaleyFest 2014 will be full of marshmallows this year.

No, not literally. But the annual TV conference will kick off its March 13-28 schedule with a panel reuniting the cast of Veronica Mars. The cast, including titular Kristen Bell, will surely have lots to tease: The Kickstarter-funded movie continuation of the tale will be released the following day. Other panels announced so far at the annual festival include American Horror Story: Coven and Pretty Little Liars. The full lineup will be announced Jan. 8.

But a reunion panel isn’t the only good news for Veronica Mars fans today. Pivot announced that it will begin airing reruns of the show, as well as repeats of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, in a new block featuring back-to-back episodes Mondays through Fridays at 10 p.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET beginning Jan. 13, 2014.

PaleyFest 2013: 'The Big Bang Theory' cast on the origins of 'bazinga' and more

Sheldon Cooper, Leonard Hofstadter, and Raj Koothrappali may not be doctors of the medical sort, but they still know how to serve up a heaping dosage of best medicine (a.k.a. laughs — lots of them) to a sold-out audience. At least, that’s what their real-life counterparts — along with other cast members and writer-producers of The Big Bang Theory — did Wednesday evening for the CBS comedy’s PaleyFest panel in Beverly Hills’ Saban Theatre.

The event, presented by the Paley Center for Media, was pretty short on spoilers. The production schedule is currently not that far ahead of viewers, who will get to see the 19th episode of season 6 tonight, but there were plenty of entertaining and funny behind-the-scenes stories and playful moments among the talent on the panel, which was moderated by NCIS actress Pauley Perrette.

PaleyFest 2013: 'New Girl' cast on alter-egos and the future of Nick and Jess

Nick and Jess kissed over a month ago, or, in television time, four episodes ago. But don’t worry… we found out Monday night at the New Girl PaleyFest panel that it’s still the thing that everyone wants to talk about. Both the discussion and the sneak peek of next week’s new episode, “Quick Hardening Caulk,” proved that the kiss was anything but old news.

Even though conversation kept coming back to The Kiss — and what it meant, and what it will mean, and how long they were planning it — the cast and producers did touch on a few other subjects, including Cece’s sudden engagement, the group’s upcoming trip to Chicago, and the mystery behind Schmidt’s first name. The energy between the cast and producers was infectious, and you almost wished that the series creator Elizabeth Meriwether could give herself a role on the show too. Jake Johnson even sang the theme song for the audience, after Zooey Deschanel declined.

Click past the jump for the top five takeaways from the New Girl panel.
