Hollywood studio network execs are really grasping at straws these days. Has everyone’s creative juices run dry? On the heels of Rush Hour, Big, Monster-In-Law, Minority Report, Problem Child, In Good Company and The Illusionist comes another movie being adapted for television.

Marley & Me which co-starred Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston is the latest to get second life on the small screen. The 2008 canine comedy-drama lands at NBC which has given the project a pilot commitment. Emmy-winning Sex And The City alumna Jenny Bicks will write the script for the single-camera comedy. The film grossed $243 million worldwide.

Does anyone else have a feeling that NBC’s upcoming Peter Pan musical is going to be one hot mess? Call me pessimistic but I think it’ll be more cringeworthy than Carrie Underwood’s wooden acting in The Sound Of Music last year. It definitely won’t attract nearly the amount of viewers. That’s for sure.

The network unveiled the first promo poster for their musical event. Allison Williams takes flight as Christopher Walken serves his best menacing mug in the artwork. Peter Pan Live! will air on December 4 on NBC. Despite my doubts, I’ll definitely be there to watch it. How about you? Weigh in below.

They said they’ll be there for you, and pretty soon, they’ll only be a click away. Netflix announced it’ll start streaming all 236 episodes from the sitcom’s 10 seasons starting January 1, 2015. That’s roughly 83 hours. I know how I’ll be nursing my New Years Eve hangover ;) Sure, I have all the DVDs, but this is far more convenient. What can I say? I’m a lazy bitch ;)

The internet streaming service shared the awesome news with a video featuring The Rembrandts singing the comedy’s theme song. Naturally, Gunther makes an appearance in the clip, serving java as he’s done throughout the series’ run.

As if Friends being available whenever I want wasn’t fantastic enough, fans will get a chance to check out the “lost” episodes where Joey (Matt LeBlanc) and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) “became a thing.” Who else is excited?

Check out the video announcement below, along with Warner Bros’ recent clip celebrating 236 seconds of the show and NBC’s look back at the sitcom before the series finale aired. Enjoy.

The battle rounds for The Voice Season 7 have just started airing, but NBC has already assembled the coaching panel for Season 8. Typically, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green would’ve reclaimed their red swivel chairs for Season 7 but due to Aguilera’s pregnancy and Green’s legal troubles, producers brought in newbies Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams to take over Shakira and Usher.

With so many coaches to pick from, would producers create a new combination or bring in new judges? More importantly, will permanent fixtures Adam Levine and Blake Shelton remain on the panel? Find out thew new lineup after the jump.

Previously, NBC shared the above photo of Allison Williams as the titular character for their upcoming Peter Pan Live! airing December 4. While public opinion was divided on how she looked in Pan’s costume, I almost guarantee the same won’t be said about Christopher Walken as Captain Hook. Walken embodies the meanie perfectly.

The network shared a promo pic with Entertainment Weekly of Walken and Williams dueling as their alter egos. Check out the photo below.

fall-2014-ratings-gotham

Arguably the most-hyped show coming into this new season has to be Gotham. FOX’s Batman prequel didn’t disappoint in terms of ratings. It notched 8 million viewers and a 3.2 rating among the coveted 18-49 demo. Definitely solid given it was against two back-to-back episodes of The Big Bang Theory. Only time will tell if the show can maintain or build upon its series premiere numbers.

Also debuting well was Scorpion over at CBS. It generated 14 million viewers and a 3.3 rating. No doubt aided greatly by it’s cushy lead-in- The Big Bang Theory double header. I don’t typically watch shows on the eye network, but this one has me intrigued. I can’t wait to check it out when I get back from my Hawaiian vacay.

Unfortunately for ABC, the winning streak for freshman shows ended with Forever. The show did alright with 8.3 million viewers but only managed to snag 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demo. That number represents a 32 percent decrease from Castle which occupied the post-Dancing With The Stars slot last season. Don’t expect a long life for this immortality drama.
