Triumph the Insult Comic Dog isn't the only late night bit to get its own television show. THR reports that Spike TV has ordered a series called Lip Sync Battle based on the hit recurring segment on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The series is executive produced by Fallon, John Krasinski, and Stephen Merchant — who are also set to perform — and will begin taping in New York in January with a premiere date set for April 2, 2015. No host has been announced yet.

"This is so much more for me than just ending a television series. I was a waiter when I got the job. No one would know my name if it wasn't for this job and I certainly wouldn't have gotten the career opportunities. To be part of something special enough to have a final season rather than just getting canned is an honor… I got this job when I was 23 and now I’m 33 and that’s a pretty important decade to spend on one project with one group of people. This is the most important thing I've ever done, the proudest thing I have. I will never forget a [...]
And so it was decided last night at the quarterly meeting of the International Hunks Association that Matt Damon and John Krasinski would combine their deep wells of individual hunkitude to create a mid-level drama. Matt Damon would direct the screenplay, which he co-wrote with John Krasinski, their two hunky minds working together as if one hunky perpetual motion machine. The script is based on a project Krasinski initially developed with Dave Eggers, well-known literary hunk. According to Variety, "Damon would play a salesman who arrives in a small town only to have his whole life called into question," while the Hollywood Reporter describes the movie [...]
Here's the latest in New Era's series of ads featuring Alec Baldwin and John Krasinski tormenting each other because of their competing allegiances to Northeastern baseball squads. There's a little less Baldwin in this one than I'd prefer, but really, what right do I have to be greedy? Most baseball cap ads are far less entertaining than these.
Former Office star John Krasinski just sold two new comedies to NBC. Deadline reports that Krasinski has landed two new comedy projects through his production company Sunday Night. The first untitled series is a single-cam comedy written by Shawn Wines and co-executive produced with Aaron Kaplan about "a disgraced law student who, out of options, is forced to turn to the exotic and lucrative world of NYC garbage collection." The second single-cam comedy is a workplace/family show from former 30 Rock writers/producers Josh Siegal and Dylan Morgan set on "a middle-aged ad executive who unexpectedly loses his job and cobbles together a ragtag team to launch his own [...]
"You betrayed me." "Dude, you're married." HAHAHhahhahahAHAHAHAHAhahHAH!!! New Yorker personal essayist Lena Dunham co-wrote the movie with director Ry Russo-Young; however, there appears to be a major quality of sex upgrade from Girls. (Johnny Kras isn't going to ask anyone to step on his balls, I assume.) Helping that is the eerie music, which makes it unclear whether everyone is about to fuck or murder each other. Which do you think it will be? BOTH!?
Here is the sixth and final installment of New Era's series of ads featuring Red Sox fan John Krasinski and Yankees fan Alec Baldwin tormenting each other over their regional rivalry. In this spot, our two heros watch the end of a tense game between their two teams, with pausing the game to use the restroom just not being an option.
Here's the third (in a planned series of six) ad for New Era featuring Alec Baldwin and John Krasinski as a pair of rival Red Sox/Yankees fan. In today's installment, a dog is spraypainted for the amusement of all. I love these ads so much, even if this one is shorter on the tense arguing than the prior two.
TBS has released trailers for its three new comedies and also announced they're developing two more in addition to the forthcoming Jake & Amir co-produced by Ed Helms. Above is the trailer for Steve and Nancy Carell's Angie Tribeca starring Rashida Jones; click through for the other two trailers and descriptions of the two new series in development, including another from Helms and a third from his fellow Office alum John Krasinski.
It has been speculated for a week or so but it still feels nice to get an official word. As we reported, 30 Rock will be given an abbreviated final season. It's sad news for a show arguably still at the height of its powers but it’s a hell of a lot better than it just getting taken off without a finale. In a time rife with cancellation speculation (band name?), it’s nice for a show like 30 Rock to be able to write itself a proper ending; it's what Tina Fey always wanted. No word on Community and Parks & Recreation but things still look solid, [...]
912 is a joke! In the fourth of six planned John Kransinski Alec Baldwin New Era ads, Baldwin's burning hatred for the Red Sox results in him accidentally setting his heavy mahogany furniture and supple leather sofas aflame out of spite. In the end, Alec and John have to move in together a la The Odd Couple, forced to get along despite their competing personality quirks and the increasingly obvious fact that, in this world, Alec Baldwin has completely lost his mind.
Here's the second of six (!!) planned ads for New Era that feature a Yankees-loving Alec Baldwin and a Sox-loving John Krasinski locking horns over their choice of local baseball squads. These are so very good. Why can't all commercials be short comedy sketches featuring very funny people? Specifically, Alec Baldwin? How many baseball hats do we need to buy to make that happen?
