'Breaking Bad' wins program of the year at TCA Awards

On Saturday, the 30th annual TCA Awards named Breaking Bad program of the year for the second year in a row. However, Bad did not face off against True Detective—its biggest rival in the upcoming Emmy race—which instead took home the award for outstanding miniseries. Matthew McConaughey was also honored for his work in True Detective.

Netflix hit Orange is the New Black won for best new program, and the Emmy-snubbed The Good Wife was named top drama.

In the comedy category, Veep tied with Louie for best comedy, while Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus was also honored.

Other winners included Saturday Night Live, which snagged the Television Critics Association’s Heritage Award, Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey, which won for news and information, and RuPaul’s Drag Race, which was honored in reality programming.

Finally, ABC Family’s The Fosters won for youth programming, and James Burrows took home the Career Achievement Award.

All in all, HBO came out on top with the most awards of any network.

'Two and a Half Men' final season to tackle 'gay' adoption

Two and a Half Men‘s isn’t going quietly: The longest-running comedy on broadcast TV will conclude its run with a final season storyline that deals with gay adoption—sort of—and possibly marriage.

CBS entertainment chairman Nina Tassler gave some reporters the scoop after her executive session panel at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills Thursday. In the show’s 12th and final season, Walden (Ashton Kutcher) is going to have a major health scare that leads him to an “existential crisis” that causes the young playboy to want to “add more meaning to his life.”

So he decides to adopt a child. “He starts the [adoption] process and realizes it’s very difficult to adopt the child as a single straight man. So, once and for all, he decides he’s going to propose to Alan [Jon Cryer]—they’re going to adopt a child as a ‘gay’ couple,” Tassler said. READ FULL STORY

TCA nominations: 'True Detective' starts awards season fight

The Television Critics Association announced its list of annual award nominees Tuesday, honoring repeat contenders like AMC’s Breaking Bad, HBO’s Game of Thrones and CBS’s The Good Wife.

Yet it’s the inclusion of HBO’s True Detective that’s the major headline-making presence here. Everybody expects the acclaimed, noir-soaked drama series to swamp awards season, and these nominations are the first indication the show could do just that. True Detective is nominated for outstanding actor (Matthew McConaughey), miniseries (though the show submitted in the drama category for the Emmys), outstanding new program, and the TCA Awards’ top category, Program of the Year (which Breaking Bad won last year). Basically, True Detective got nominated for every category for which it’s eligible.

Some other newcomers include Fox’s Cosmos for outstanding reality program, and other new program category noms: Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, FX’s Fargo, Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black and Fox’s Sleepy Hollow.

For the Heritage Award, which honors one long-standing program that has had a major cultural or social impact, the following classics are nominated: ABC’s Lost, NBC’s Saturday Night Live, Comedy Central’s South Park, NBC’s Star Trek and ABC’s Twin Peaks. That seems like a rather impossible choice to make. How do you compare SNL to Lost to 1966’s Star Trek?  Here’s the full list: READ FULL STORY

TCA Award winners: 'Breaking Bad,' 'Game of Thrones,' and 'The Americans'

The Television Critics Association handed out awards in 12 categories to 13 winners at their annual TCA Awards event, held in Los Angeles last night. AMC’s Breaking Bad won for Program of the Year — an award it could very well win next year, assuming the show can stick the landing in its final season — while FX’s freshman drama The Americans won Outstanding New Program, proving that Television Critics love Soviet Felicity exactly as much as you do. Big Bang Theory and Parks and Recreation split the top Comedy award, while Game of Thrones landed the best Drama award. And yes, nerds, Tatiana Maslany earned an award for playing seven clones and a kitchen sink in Orphan Black. Check out the full list of winners below.
