Could 'Terra Nova' end up with Netflix?

Netflix seems to be getting on the right side of TV fans.

The company is already resuscitating cult favorite "Arrested Development," and according to Entertainment Weekly, Netflix also has its eye on Steven Spielberg's now canceled "Terra Nova."

The series was canceled earlier this week after one season, but 20th Century Fox TV and Netflix are chatting about the possibility of bringing "Terra Nova" to life once again.

'American Horror Story' season 2 will have new house, new faces

'American Horror Story' season 2 will have new house, new faces

Hopefully fans of "American Horror Story" didn't get super-attached to the characters or the setting of the FX series, because season 2 will bring plenty of changes.

When it debuted in October, the Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk co-created program starred Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton as the Harmons. The couple, along with their teen daughter, moved into a haunted old mansion in Los Angeles. Jessica Lange's portrayal of Constance, meanwhile,  earned her a Golden Globe nod.

But by the end of the first season, as we noted in this week's recap, it was less about who was killed in a given episode of "American Horror Story" and more about who was still living. Judging from a conference call Murphy held with press on Thursday, there isn't much that will make it out of the first season alive.

What's the verdict: 'I Hate My Teenage Daughter'

Fox’s new sitcom “I Hate My Teenage Daughter” premiered with respectable ratings after “The X Factor” on Wednesday night.

About 6.8 million people tuned in to watch the multicamera comedy about the disconnect between moms and their – you guessed it – teenage daughters.

But, despite a decent turnout, the show isn’t resonating with critics.

'New Girl's' Jake Johnson on Jess and Nick's relationship

After last week’s “New Girl,” in which Jess (Zooey Deschanel) walked in on a naked Nick (Jake Johnson) and saw his “bing-bong," it's safe to say that their friendship has reached a new level of awkwardness.

But in a recent conference call, Johnson hinted that the budding friendship between Nick and Jess could turn into a romantic relationship.

“I think Jess and Nick are in that state of really kind of feeling each other out,” he said. “I think they both definitely noticed each other.”

'Forced Family Fun' on 'Parenthood'

'Forced Family Fun' on 'Parenthood'

The title of this week's episode of "Parenthood"  is "Forced Family Fun," but they very well could have stopped at "Forced Family."  I'm not sure anyone had any fun.

That's not to say Kristina didn't try. She made chocolate chip pancakes for a special “we can take the baby out of the house” breakfast, which everyone but the baby bailed on. You could feel the epic Kristina meltdown getting closer every minute.

And after they piled into the car to go to mini golf, there it was: Mini-Van Maxi Meltdown!

What's the verdict?: 'Allen Gregory'

Fox's new half-hour animated comedy "Allen Gregory" is perfectly titled, because the series star, a beyond-precocious 7-year-old of the same name, is the reason to keep watching.

The series, co-created by and starring actor Jonah Hill, made its debut Sunday ahead of another smart-mouthed kid, "Family Guy's" Stewie Griffin. The basic premise is that Allen Gregory's dad has fallen on hard times and needs his (maybe-straight) life partner Jeremy to get a job instead of home-schooling Allen Gregory.

That means Allen. G (as we'll call him) has to brave the halls of public school, along with his adopted Cambodian sister, Julie (Joy Osmanski).
