After one episode of Danny Brocklehurst’s family drama, Come Home, the mood was awkward but not despondent. Episode one, remember, focused on Greg (Christopher Eccleston), the single dad with three kids who was holding down a job at the garage and trying his hand at internet dating. That was all comic enough. His small talk was about how he wasn’t a psychopath. So that didn’t go well. Then he fell in with Brenna (Kerri Quinn), the sparky woman with the filled-rolls van who he rescued when she was getting a battering from her psychopath boyfriend outside the pub. True, there were clues about Brenna — specifically the bit where she suggested that Greg’s children might like to try some drugs — but there was good humour too. Oh, and the bit where Greg sneaked round to his estranged wife’s new house and had a sniff of her underwear drawer before being forced to hide in the shower while her friend had a pee. Yes, that was odd. Nerve-wracking but odd. … [Read more...] about Tuesday’s Best TV: Come Home, Class of Mum and Dad and The Resident

ENTERTAINMENT 04/04/2018 12:27 pm ET Now that Chip and Joanna Gaines have officially said goodbye, HGTV is looking toward future programming. By Leigh Blickley 100 Five years ago, a show about a small-town couple running a real estate and home design business while raising their four children premiered on HGTV. “Fixer Upper” quickly became Texas’ most prized possession, shoveling in ratings and setting a new (but probably painted antique white) bar for home improvement television. If HGTV was once a destination for wallpaper television, the kind of programming that played pleasantly in the background of your home for hours on end, the Gaineses made it something else ― a purveyor of a new and improved kind of “ubiquity TV” that didn’t just stream on your screen. With books and decor lines, a physical mecca in Texas and near-constant paparazzi coverage of its stars, “Fixer Upper” was everywhere, … [Read more...] about How ‘Fixer Upper’ Popularized A New Kind Of Wallpaper TV
At first glance, E! viewers might mistake the glamorous red-carpet premieres, movie sets and far-off locales of The Arrangement for a real-life Hollywood story. But in reality, the drama about A-list actor Kyle West (Josh Henderson) and his new ingénue girlfriend (Christine Evangelista) actually marks the network's second foray into scripted. Following the success of the channel's first scripted series, the recently renewed The Royals, comes The Arrangement. The show follows a struggling actress who enters into an arranged relationship with a high-profile actor and must subsequently navigate his unique relationship with a self-help guru who heads a spirituality center called The Institute of the Higher Mind. Created by Mad Men alum Jonathan Abrams, the series has drawn multiple comparisons to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes as well as the action star's relationship with Scientology — something that all parties have involved have repeatedly downplayed. But while E! is still … [Read more...] about E! Network President Discusses Scripted Push, Kim Kardashian Paris Trauma and Peak TV
