Showtime's "The Affair" and Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black" were among several TV shows receiving three nods as nominations for the 2015 Golden Globes were announced on Thursday (December 11) morning.

Also receiving three nominations on the series side were CBS' "The Good Wife" and Netflix's "House of Cards," though all of the shows competing for series crowns are behind FX's "Fargo" and HBO's "True Detective," which earned five and four nominations respectively and are heading for an epic showdown in the Movie/Miniseries field.

Golden Globe voters' love of the new leads to noms for 'Jane the Virgin' & more

Also lots of movie actors working in TV, from McConaughey and Harrelson to Clive Owen

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is in every way a less legitimate organization than the Screen Actors Guild, yet the Golden Globe TV nominations list is always so much more interesting than whatever SAG puts out the day before. The HFPA shares the SAG voters love of famous movie actors deigning to do television, but they couple that with a love of all things new and shiny that can sometimes be ridiculous and other times be awesome.

Top TV for 2014: 10 more great returning series

Celebrating 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' 'Bob's Burgers' & more

I am what James Poniewozik at Time would call an Everybody Gets a Trophy kind of person. With the Baseball Hall of Fame, I'm a big Hall kind of guy. (Vote Tim Raines this year, people!) I like honoring as much excellence as I can, whenever I can, even if it comes at the risk of making everything a bit less special because so many things are being called special.

Season finale talkback: 'Kingdom' - 'King Beast'

What did everybody think of the finale of the DirecTV MMA drama?

Back in the fall, I was reasonably impressed with "Kingdom," the new drama airing on DirecTV's Audience Network. It seemed to be transplanting bits of pieces of recent cable dramas (a splash of "Sons of Anarchy," a healthy serving of "Lights Out," etc.), but with solid writing and directing, and an excellent cast led by Frank Grillo.

Recap: 'Survivor: San Juan Del Sur' - 'Let's Make a Move'

A bum ankle takes one castaway to the brink

Pre-credit sequence. When we left things, Jon was confused. Upon returning to camp? Jaclyn is confused, going so far as to suggest that Alec might have voted for himself. Amidst this disarray, Natalie has decided that she's going to pretend that she blew the communication and thought she was part of the block voting Alec, not part of the Keith block. Baylor is impressed with Natalie's acting skills and Jon has accepted Natalie's line about not being talked to enough. The worry, at least for Jon, is that Keith could win Immunities and screw things up. The next morning, Natalie makes it clear to Keith that she saved him and he needs to stick with her and with Missy and Baylor. The plan is to target Jon. Again.

Report: Stephen Colbert to launch his CBS “Late Show” in late summer
With David Letterman exiting on May 20, the LA Times reports that Colbert may not take over “The Late Show" until late August or early September. The hiatus will be used to hire new staff. And according to The Times, "a new set will be built in the Ed Sullivan Theater, which will also be refurbished and receive some technical upgrades. CBS will want to mount some test shows with Colbert in front of an audience before the launch.” It’s worth noting that Letterman started his “Late Show” on Aug. 30, 1993 after a summer hiatus following his exit from NBC’s “Late Night.”
