  • ‘Sharknado’ sequel a must-see treat Jul 28, 2014 9:50 PM
    The Sharknado Evacuation map supplied by Syfy network places Lower Manhattan smack in the zone most in peril this sharknado season. But you might as well batten down the hatches, too. “Sharknado 2: The Second One” (which, if you hadn’t guessed, is an encore follow-up sequel to last summer’s campy classic) premieres at 8 p.m. Wednesday.

     
  • ‘Sharknado 2’ ready to take bite out of Big Apple Jul 28, 2014 6:00 AM
    Last year, chainsaw in hand, surfer and bar owner Finley “Fin” Shepard (Ian Ziering) defended Los Angeles from deadly sharks scooped from the sea by a freak storm and rained onto Tinseltown.

Come Wednesday, July 30, on Syfy, the freak storm strikes again, as “Sharknado 2: The Second One” crosses the continent to hit New York City.

     
  • Once a movie extra, Wheaton grad now a movie director Jul 28, 2014 5:42 PM
    When she's not working as a production assistant on NBC's "Parks and Recreation," Karen Teune writes, directs and stars her own independent films. “I definitely call myself a filmmaker now,” said Teune, who grew up in Carol Stream and, later, Wheaton. “Being a production assistant is to help pay the bills, and it’s invaluable in terms of learning. A huge part of the business is meeting people . it’s definitely not glamorous stuff (to be a production assistant), but it’s huge to be a part of this ‘Parks and Recreation’ family.

  • FX says overnight ratings becoming meaningless Jul 27, 2014 5:30 AM
    It’s a rite nearly as old as television: the morning after a new show premieres, network executives wait impatiently for the Nielsen company’s estimate of how many people watched, and rush to report the first sign of a hit. Leaders at the FX network are trying something new: They’re no longer talking publicly about how their programs do on opening night, believing those numbers don’t accurately reflect how many people see their shows. Instead, they’re waiting a few days to see how many people catch up via time shifting.

     
  • Scientists make love, war weapons in ‘Manhattan’ Jul 27, 2014 6:15 AM
    Writer-producer Sam Shaw was grappling with how to craft a TV drama about the war on terror and the price it exacts from those who keep its secrets. He found the answer by looking back to the early 1940s, when U.S. scientists and others working in isolation created the first atomic bombs. The result is “Manhattan,” debuting at 8 p.m. Sunday on WGN America. The drama is set in a makeshift, desolate Southwestern desert community, one of several that sprang up as part of the Manhattan Project.

  • DVD previews: ‘Noah,’ ‘The Other Woman’ Jul 26, 2014 5:00 AM
    In the film "Noah," Darren Aronofsky has avoided predictable, literalist retellings of beloved Sunday school stories by inserting new characters, bringing parenthetical figures to the fore and making one of history’s most enduring and universal myths his own. The result is a movie -- coming to DVD July 29 -- that is clearly deeply respectful of its source material but also at times startlingly revisionist, a go-for-broke throwback to Hollywood biblical epics of yore that combines grandeur and grace, as well as a generous dollop of goofy overstatement.

     
  • Harmon: ‘Community’ online won’t be too different Jul 25, 2014 10:58 AM
    Just because “Community” is going online to Yahoo doesn’t mean it’s in for a lot of changes. In fact, creator Dan Harmon says he has “no big, highfalutin plans” for its Web version. At a Comic-Con panel Thursday, Harmon revealed he doesn’t want season six to feel radically different, especially to its loyal fans.

    “American Idol” needs to find contestants the audience cares about.
