Tina Fey's first comedy series since "30 Rock" has been picked up by Netflix. "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" stars Ellie Kemper who breaks away from a cult after 15 years of brainwashing to start over in New York City.

NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt told People: “When the opportunity arose for Tina Fey and Robert Carlock to premiere their new show on Netflix with a two-season commitment, we decided this was the best possible scenario to launch this captivating new series. While it was originally developed for NBC, we have a very drama-heavy mid-season schedule so we’re thrilled ...

'Transporter: The Series' Season Finale Preview And New Behind T
Frank Martin will face his biggest showdown yet in Saturday's Transporter: The Series season finale - and audiences will see action like you've never seen before on television.

'How To Get Away With Murder' Recap: Who Killed Sam?

November 21st, 2014 11:36am EST
How to Get Away with Murder
Who killed Sam? Well, that’s a complicated question. Physically, it’s Michaela who injures him on the staircase. After a Scream like resurgence, it’s Wes who bashes a trophy over his head when he tries to strangle Rebecca (which isn’t even in murder; it’s justifiable homicide). However, it’s the group that thinks they all killed him—which is absolutely ludicrous—but in the end they all might as well have since they burn his body and chop it up into little pieces, callously throwing it in a Philly dumpster.

And then, in the final moments of an episode that basically just rehashes (in order)...

'Scandal' Review: 5 Best Moments From 'Where The Sun Don't Shine
ABC’s winter finales are usually bonkers and Scandal usually epitomizes that. For the most part, “Where the Sun Don’t Shine” was a calmer episode than we’re used to, but the ending really ramped things up. Here are the top 5 moments from the episode:

Killing B613

It’s almost as if Scandal heard our prayers. The B613 conspiracy is by far the weakest part of the show. It weighed down last season and its continual mentions this year have elicited quite a few groans. But in “Where the Sun Don’t Shine” the show is trying to rectify that problem by killing off the members of B613. Unfortunately...

Check Out 'Eat: The Story of Food,' Tonight On National Geographic

Eat
Food. It’s driven nearly everything we've ever done as a species, and yet it's one of the most overlooked aspects of human history.

In the beginning, our hunger drove us to hunt. Then, it led us to plant and settle, resulting in civilization. We conquered the land, and we went out into the ocean and then the larger world. We filled our bellies, but it still wasn’t enough. Because as humans became more sophisticated, so did our needs—we searched for flavor and convenience, adapting science and technology to match our cravings.

Whether for meat or sugar, junk food or beer, humanity's appe...
