First it was Pink is the new Black. Then, everyone said that Orange is the New Black and Kale is the new Spinach. Now, it’s quite possible that James Corden is the new Craig Ferguson! With Ferguson leaving The Late Late Show at years end, I think that Benedict Cumberbatch’s name is the only one […]

‘Us & Them’, the U.S. version of ‘Gavin & Stacey’ shelved by Fox

Network television in the States is a cruel business at times. Us & Them, a remake of popular British situation comedy Gavin & Stacey, has ‘officially’ been axed before it ever saw the light of day.
