Hooray! 'Community' Comes To Hulu Plus

by Crystal Bell, posted Dec 2nd 2011 2:30PM
community huluIt's been a rough few weeks for 'Community' fans. After being left off NBC's midseason schedule, the fate of the quirky comedy is still uncertain. There have been multiple campaigns to save the show -- and even AOL TV's own Mo Ryan sent an open letter to NBC to save the show -- but there's still been no word on 'Community's' return to the Thursday night comedy block.

So to help 'Community' fans pass the time with Jess and the study group, Hulu Plus will exclusively offer all three seasons of the cult classic, starting today, which means you can catch all the jokes and pop culture savviness from the beginning.

Hulu Plus subscribers will have next-day access to the current season of 'Community,' as well as the entire back library of Seasons 1 and 2. In other 'Community' news, despite its uncertain future, after its most recent episode, the series did inch up in total viewers and drew a 1.7 rating in the demo.

'Misfits' Season 3 Exclusive: Cast Talks Coming to America

misfits season 3 hulu exclusive Rejoice, 'Misfits' fans! As previously reported, the quirky, foul-mouthed UK teen dramedy is coming back to America exclusively on Hulu for Season 3.

At the end of Season 2, our favorite teen anti-heros were left powerless, but it definitely won't stay that way for long. Kelly (Lauren Socha), Curtis (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett), Alisha (Antonia Thomas) and Simon (Iwan Rheon) have all-new powers, which means that there will be some serious adjusting. And new blood.

After the departure of fan-favorite Nathan (Robert Sheehan), we wondered who could possible step in and fill out that advantageous orange jumpsuit. Enter Rudy, played by actor Joe Gilgun. Think of him as one part Nathan and one part painfully shy Simon circa Season 1, and we have to admit, he fits in with the 'Misfits' quite well.

In this exclusive behind-the-scenes clip, the young cast talks about 'Misfits' coming to America, and how they hope the US will embrace the show just as much as the UK has done.

misfits season 3 on huluThe wait is finally over (American) 'Misfits' fans! Your favorite raunchy sci-fi teen dramedy is returning exclusively to Hulu for Season 3.

At first, we were a little worried when Robert Sheehan said he was leaving the E4 hit. After all, who else was going as obscenely brash and funny as Nathan? But after seeing the first the few episodes of Season 3, we have to admit, actor Joe Gilgun looks pretty good in that orange jumpsuit. Gilgun's character Rudy is one part Nathan and one part painfully shy Simon circa Season 1 -- seriously!

The U.K. hit follows a group of young offenders forced to work in a community service program, where they acquire supernatural powers after a strange electrical storm.

The CW Shows Are Coming to Hulu

by Chris Harnick, posted Oct 28th 2011 4:00PM
The CW Partners With HuluThe CW is stepping up its game. In early October, The CW partnered with Netflix to put past seasons of their current shows on the streaming service. Now, the fledgling network is partnering with Hulu for a new five-year licensing agreement that will bring current episodes of CW shows to the online streaming site.

The partnership begins later in 2011 and will include The CW's nine current shows, 'Ringer,' 'Hart of Dixie,' 'The Secret Circle,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'Gossip Girl,' 'Supernatural,' 'Nikita,' '90210' and 'America's Next Top Model.'

"Our new arrangement with Hulu only affirms the incredible value of The CW's series, as well as amplifying the immense power of the broadcast network model," Mark Pedowitz, president of The CW, said in a statement. "As we increase the amount of year round original programming on The CW, this deal provides our shows with greater exposure on a new platform, helping build even more awareness that will drive viewers back to the network and its affiliates. We see this as a win for everyone involved, the network, the stations, Hulu and ultimately, the viewers."

Could the New 'Arrested Development' Season Head to Hulu?

by Chris Harnick, posted Oct 5th 2011 11:00AM
'Arrested Development' movie rumors are so 2007. Rumors about the new season of 'Arrested Development' are all the rage now!

According to Vulture, Hulu is making a play for the recently announced mini-season that will lead up to the 'Arrested Development' film. Showtime and Netflix are also reportedly interested in the new project.

Arrested Development Reunion

The show is available on Hulu and Netflix to watch instantly, and a Vulture source says Hulu has seen more than 100 million streams on 'Arrested' content since 2008. After airing for three low-rated seasons on Fox, it's unlikely the series would air on the network or any of its cable sisters because of its limited run. The networks are all about establishing hits, and in that regard 'Arrested' already had its chance.

Corey Monteith Has a Record Deal, 'Real Housewife' Writing Advice Book & More TV News

by Jean Bentley, posted Jun 23rd 2011 6:40PM
Glee, Cory MonteithOf all the Gleeks, Corey Monteith is probably the last you'd consider for a solo record deal.

Yet the man otherwise known as 16-year-old Finn on Fox's 'Glee' talked to Parade magazine about his solo deal with Columbia Records in an article due out this weekend.

"I have a solo deal with Columbia Records. So it's about, do I want to release an album, when can we do it, what kind of album should it be, how should it be released and marketed and what's the right timing? Do I have time to do it?," Monteith told the magazine. "It's all about questions."

Then again, Monteith is a talented drummer, so perhaps his potential album would feature less singing and more drumming. Would you listen to a Monteith-only record?

5 Reasons to Check Out 'Misfits' on Hulu

by Chris Harnick, posted Jun 15th 2011 4:15PM
Fans of good TV take note! 'Misfits' is coming to Hulu. Why does this matter to you? Because you need to see this show before some American network buys it and puts its own (probably terrible) spin on it. Nothing says great TV like hormonal, smart alec teenagers with super abilities, and that's the premise behind the BAFTA award-winning UK series.

Suddenly your summer got much more exciting.

Hulu to Change Business Model?

by Jean Bentley, posted Jan 27th 2011 5:25PM
HuluWhen Hulu first debuted its free online video-watching service in 2008, it was a way for networks like NBC and Fox to circumvent illegal downloading.

Now, three years later, many consumers exclusively watch TV online. Free streaming is cutting into the networks' traditional revenue streams, causing Fox, NBC Universal and Disney to reconsider Hulu's business model.

In a wonderfully in-depth story this morning, The Wall Street Journal examined the form Hulu could take in the future. Would you watch Hulu if it were a live-streaming cable provider instead of its current iteration?

CBS, Viacom in Talks With Hulu

by Nick Zaino, posted Jun 23rd 2010 12:30AM
Hulu, CBS in talksHulu may be in for some major changes. According to a report on Bloomberg.com, the site is in talks with CBS to offer the network's shows to paying customers. Viacom, the parent company of MTV and Comedy Central, and Time Warner, parent company of TBS and TNT, are looking at a different service called TV Everywhere that would allow customers already paying for cable or satellite service to watch shows for free online.

Bloomberg.com notes that Hulu took a heavy hit when Viacom removed 'The Daily Show' and 'The Colbert Report' from its free service, with a decrease in viewship from 14.1 million in February to 12.2 million in March. And if TV Everywhere does work out for Viacom, it's unlikely they would keep negotiating with Hulu.

30 RockHappy Pranksgiving! April Fools Day ... that time-honored tradition on the first of April when people can torment and harass their co-workers and classmates with practical jokes ranging from the innocent and cute to brilliant and evil. It's come a long way since its origins in a Medieval French city where a prince tried to bring laughter back to his kingdom to laugh after its the clowns mysteriously died.

OK, we made that up. Fooled ya! We don't know how the "holiday" started, but we do know that every office has "that guy" who spends weeks of time planning the ultimate prank. So, we've put together a to-do list (with a little help from TV's most popular actors) so you, too, can be "that guy."

Viacom to Pull 'Colbert,' 'Daily Show' From Hulu

by Leonard Jacobs, posted Mar 3rd 2010 10:18AM
And now for some not-so-funny news: On Mar. 10, Comedy Central will bid sayonara to Hulu, meaning it will no longer provide episodes of 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' or 'The Colbert Report' on its site.

According to Variety, Comedy Central owner, Viacom, has concluded that not enough revenue is being generated through the commercial-supported site. Hulu is a joint venture of three media giants: News Corp., NBC Universal and Disney.

In a statement, however, Comedy Central was careful not to diss Hulu, calling its 21-month relationship "a great experience." Writing on Hulu's blog, Andy Forssell, senior VP for content and distribution, said Comedy Central had been vital to its growth, citing "increasing revenue per view as advertisers voted with their budgets to take advantage of innovative ad formats and very strong advertising effectiveness."

HBO Starting Online Video Service

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 17th 2010 3:02PM
HBO logoEveryone seems to be putting a lot of money into online video: Hulu, Epix (from Paramount, MGM, and Lionsgate), and our own SlashControl, to name a few. It's the future! Now another company is getting into the web act, HBO (or Home Box Office, which no one calls it anymore). They have a new service coming up with the catchy name HBO GO (unlike the other video sites you will only be able to access HBO's stuff).

Ben Parr at Mashable makes a good point when he says that if GO only goes to HBO subscribers and no one else, it's only going to be a niche thing. He suggests that HBO open some parts of it to everyone (with advertising) and then have other features and videos that are only available to HBO subscribers.

This has actually been in the works for a while. We first reported on it back in 2006.
