The Goodwin Games premieres tonight at 8:30 p.m. eastern on Fox. Check your local cable box for confirmation. Or you can just watch the episode right now.
The Goodwin Games is a cute, fun show that has a 99.9 percent chance of not lasting beyond its seven episode order. Which is a good thing.
You probably know the names of Carter Bays and Craig Thomas – they are the creators and executive producers of How I Met Your Mother, a comedy that is about to continue to extend a cool, lofty premise even longer past the point of diminishing returns for a final, ninth season. Well, [...]
Comedian Eric Andre had an out-of-control appearance on G4's recently-canceled series Attack of the Show! Wednesday, which resulted in him exposing himself and yelling about how the show was canceled so it didn't matter. Not to be outdone, yesterday's guest T.J. Miller also exposed himself and got physical with a Christmas tree. I guess Attack of the Show's last weeks on the air will just be filled with naked pandemonium.
"Lost Roles" is a weekly column exploring “what might have been” in movie and TV comedy, as we take a different actor, writer, or comedian each week and examine the parts they turned down, wanted but didn’t get, and the projects that fell apart altogether. This week, I interviewed T.J. Miller, star of She’s Out of My League

. Miller's inventive new show, the Comedy Central standup/video hybrid Mash Up
, premiered earlier this week and airs Tuesday nights at 12:30am. Miller was nice enough to chat about some of the parts he’s missed out on, including the epic tale [...]
Only January and already there's a lock on R-Rated Stop-Motion Animated Comedy of the Year. To Hell and Back, starring TJ Miller and Nick Swardson, just added Rob Riggle, Brian Posehn, and Kumail Nanjiani to its cast, and their roles sound pretty perfect:
Riggle will voice a 20-year-old who is finally growing up. Posehn will play an aging heavy metal fan trapped in the 80s (naturally). And Nanjiani will play “Sal the Demon, an employee in hell.”
Thought experiment: if every viewing of this heavenly movie required you to spend one year in hell, how many times would you see it? More or less than five?
Nick Swardson and TJ Miller have been cast in a stop-motion animated comedy from ShadowMachine, the company behind Robot Chicken and Moral Orel. Hell & Back, which starts shooting in January, is the story of "two best friends who must rescue their pal when he is accidentally dragged to hell." Sounds specific enough to be very risque and very entertaining!
