When Katherine Newberry – late night TV legend – is told this is her last season, because she’s ‘too old and too white,’ she goes all affirmative action and, lo and behold, Molly shows up in her previously all-male writers room.

But is Molly a case of too little, too late? Molly certainly doesn’t think so.

Amazon Studios’ Late Night will be in theaters on June 7th.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes Doesn’t Monkey Around!

The trailers for Rise of the Planet of the Apes haven’t exactly been riveting, so I was lukewarm on checking it out. On the other hand, seeing a would-be blockbuster that wasn’t trying to artificially its box office with 3D levies was appealing.

In a plain, old-fashioned theater – no 3D, no special big screen or umpty-ump speakers pumping up the volume – Rise of the Planet of the Apes won me over by just being a decent movie.

First Look: Fox’s First Trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes!

Pierre Boulle’s famous novel, Monkey Planet, gave rise to a franchise that just would not go away – spawning Planet of the Apes, its theatrical sequels and the Tim Burton remake [and a related videogame]; a live-action, primetime TV series and an animated Saturday morning series. So, why on earth would anyone think yet another attempt to make something out of the concept would be a good idea?

Unlikely as it seems, the trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes actually looks pretty good – intriguing, even – and sufficiently different to be worth a look.

TELEVISION REVIEW: Deadly Daddy Dexter’s Toughest Challenge Yet!

Television’s favorite monster, Dexter [Showtime, Sundays, 9/8C], us back and even though he’s got a new and nasty serial killer to deal with, his biggest, most ominous challenge just may be fatherhood! Season opens with, among other things, Dexter’s [Michael C. Hall] sleep deprivation causing him to screw up in court; misplace the body of his latest victim, and flip his SUV. Could things get much worse?

St. Dexter, S4

How about the introduction of a serial killer who kills three women of very specific types, over a very specific period of time – and then moves to a different city to repeat the pattern? Now, just suppose that he’s in Miami to celebrate a scary anniversary of his first three kills. And suppose that FBI uber-profiler Frank Lundy [Keith Carradine] is back in town following him – much to the surprise and consternation of a certain female detective who might just be Dexter’s sister [Jennifer Carpenter].
