Whither Dr. Alfred Bellows: The Death of the Television Rerun

There’s a better-than-average chance you have no idea who Alfred Bellows is. And, to be honest, I don’t know that much about Alfred Bellows either. Like, for instance, I have no idea if his friends call him “Al” in social situations. I mean, that would certainly make sense. I do know that Alfred Bellows – who, professionally, went as Dr. Bellows – was Tony Nelson and Roger Healey’s superior officer on a popular situational comedy that aired from 1965 until 1970 titled ‘I Dream of Jeannie.’

I mention this because, one night a couple of weeks ago after a few pints, I made a Dr. Bellows reference. As you might imagine, a Dr. Bellows reference doesn’t quite go over like gangbusters today like it would, say, 44 years ago. Unsurprisingly, I had to explain who Dr. Bellows is and that explanation was met with the inquiry, “Wait, how old are you?”

‘Alpha House’ Season 2: Amazon Renews John Goodman Comedy, Confirms Six Others to Series

Amazon's John Goodman-led original series, 'Alpha House,' garnered much acclaim during its first season run and even challenged Netflix's premiere model by initially releasing only the first three episodes before transitioning into a weekly release. So far, it's proved successful, and now Amazon has officially given the green light to 'Alpha House' season 2, in addition to series orders for six other programs.

AMC’s ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ Trailer: Lee Pace Is Ready to Break Some Rules

AMC's 'The Walking Dead' season 4 finale was a big night in more ways than one, especially in terms of sneak peeks at upcoming shows and movies. Aside from new looks at 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' and 'Transformers: Age of Extinction,' viewers also got to see the first trailer for the network's new original series 'Halt and Catch Fire,' which stars 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'The Hobbit' actor Lee Pace.

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 5: Cast and Crew Talk What’s Next After the Season 4 Finale

'The Walking Dead' season 4 came to a close with Sunday night's finale, "A," but while there were plenty of gun play, reunions and drama to be had, there still lacked any major revelation or surprise to leave us craving more from the upcoming season 5, to air this fall. In the latest behind-the-scenes videos from AMC's hit drama, the cast and crew all try and wrap up what we saw last night, while speculating what'll come to pass next season, using buzz words like "brutal" and "explosive" to get us pumped.

‘SNL’ Scorecard: Louis C.K. May or May Not Have a Darth Vader Up His Butt

So, yes, welcome to 'SNL' Scorecard’s third official home (we started way back in 2010 at Movieline before moving to HuffPost) and I hope everyone found their way over here okay? There's a new graphic! Anyway, can we dispense with the introductions now because that’s not why you’re here? Great, moving on…

What an interesting show this was! It certainly wasn’t the best show of the season – though it just might have had the best sketch – but there were a lot of oddities last night. And oddities are a good thing, as opposed to just the parade of current popular culture references that seemed to litter the first half of this season. Louis C.K. returns for his second hosting gig – and C.K. is an interesting host because (A) he’s good and (B) he’s been, let’s say, known to give up on a sketch when he knows it’s not working. (Remember when he sandbagged the “Mountain Pass” sketch?) And last night we finally did learn if Louis C.K. has a Darth Vader action figure up his butt. Anyway, let’s get to the Scorecard…

‘SNL’ Wants You to Vote For Chris Fitzpatrick For Class President

'SNL' has gotten a lot of mileage out of truly weird and intentionally cheap-looking video sketches over this past season or so, but none have been as weird or as deliriously, giddily cheap as last night's bit featuring Kyle Mooney as a high school douchebag attempting to run for high school president.

‘SNL’: Louis C.K. Goes to His Doctor’s Office For a Weird ‘Star Wars’ Problem

When you get Louis C.K. to host 'SNL,' there's bound to be at least one sketch that perfectly fits his specific brand of comedy, which tackles reality using surrealism and absurdity. One sketch from last night's episode felt like the perfect halfway point between an episode of C.K.'s FX comedy 'Louie' and a typically crass 'SNL' skit, making it too weird to even consider ignoring.

‘SNL’ Presents the Buddy Cop Television Classic “Dyke and Fats”

When 'SNL' targets television shows, their targets tend to be modern (or at least based on some iconic celebrity). So it was a pleasant and weird surprise when the show went completely retro with a fake commercial for an old show called "Dyke and Fats," a buddy cop series starring two female police officers with very unfortunate nicknames.

‘SNL’: Watch Louis C.K.’s Hilarious Opening Monologue

If you put a professional stand-up comic on a stage, he's going to want to perform. Did anyone actually expect 'SNL' guest host Louis C.K. to play along with any opening monologue idea that wasn't just eight minutes of hilarious comedy carefully culled from whatever he's working on at the moment? After all, C.K. is funny and he knows a good self-promotion opportunity when he sees it.

‘American Horror Story’ Season 4: ‘The Shield’s Michael Chiklis Joins the ‘Freak Show’

The fourth cycle of Ryan Murphy's 'American Horror Story' will take us to the 'Freak Show' with a cast of familiar faces, but at least one new big name has been added to the marquee. 'The Shield' and 'No Ordinary Family' star (ha, right?) Michael Chiklis has officially joined 'American Horror Story: Freak Show,' but as whom, you ask?

Do You Want to Sell Jimmy Fallon a Truck? Good Luck With That

'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon has been in the market for a truck for awhile now -- why the hard-and-fast New Yorker needs a truck is still a bit of a mystery, but it may involve pumpkin-hauling -- and he's finally settled on one. It's a Ford 150 King Ranch! Which sort of sounds like a delicious brand of potato chip, but also looks very impressive.

‘Arrow’ “Deathstroke” Preview: Slade Faces Oliver, and Isabel Rochev Returns

The past weeks of the CW's 'Arrow' have focused their attention on adapting DC comics teams from the likes of the "Suicide Squad" to the "Birds of Prey," but next week's "Deathstroke" will return to the matter at hand as Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) takes aim at the Queen family.
