Jane By Design Preview: Teri Hatcher Creates Turmoil for the Quimby Kids

Jane By Design Preview: Teri Hatcher Creates Turmoil for the Quimby Kids | TVFiends Daily | Scoop.it

“Wait ’til your mother gets home” takes on a whole new dimension this Tuesday, when Jane By Design (ABC Family, 9/8c) gets a visit from the one person who could put a serious dent in the Quimby siblings’ happy arrangement: Their long-absent mom, played by Teri Hatcher in a four-episode guest arc.

Mom Kate has been gallivanting the world and spending time at ashrams — but what she’s really been up to is “starring on Desperate Housewives [as Susan] for 10 years,” jokes David Clayton Rogers, who plays her son, Ben.

Emmy Sh*t List! The 10 Emmy Snubs That Piss Us Off Most | AfterElton.com

Emmy Sh*t List! The 10 Emmy Snubs That Piss Us Off Most | AfterElton.com | TVFiends Daily | Scoop.it

If you don't watch Mad Men for Peggy Olsen, I don't understand a thing about you. Her drive, humanity, and burgeoning confidence are the only constantly compelling part of the series. There's simply no way you can care about Don's Megan woes or Pete's flings with Gilmore Girls alums. Elisabeth Moss brings such an august and lived-in feel to Peggy, a character whose ambitions and insecurities evolve and shift so wonderfully as the seasons progress. As of yet, no Mad Men regular has garnered an Emmy, and I think Ms. Moss should be the first to break the seal. After all, this may have been her final season on the show. Give it up, Emmys.

Showrunner Survey: Ryan Murphy Is Obsessed With Girls, Mob Wives, All in the Family

Showrunner Survey: Ryan Murphy Is Obsessed With Girls, Mob Wives, All in the Family | TVFiends Daily | Scoop.it

Do time slots still matter? Explain.


With the launch of a show, I think lead-in does matter. I saw that with Horror Story, particularly in the beginning when you would look at the movies FX would show [before an episode]. If they were big box-office hits, there were just more eyeballs on the screen. So I think in the beginning of the life of a show, it helps. But the ratings system as a whole is so antiquated.

Nearly 70% of total TV shipments in 2016 will be for connected TVs, resulting in revenues of more than $117 billion (€88.3 billion), according to a new report by IMS Research.  This contrasts with a global figure of 25% last year and shows, according to the company’s market analyst and author of the Connected TV Sets – World – 2012 report Veronica Thayer, that “internet connectivity is becoming a standard on high-end TV sets, and it’s increasingly being added to mid-end televisions.”
