HitFix First Look: On 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' Holt and Wuntch get physical

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" concludes what's been another funny season Sunday night at 8:30 on FOX. At the end of the most recent episode, Captain Holt learned to his horror that his nemesis Chief Wuntch had tricked him into succeeding so she could promote him out of the Nine-Nine and into a boring desk job. In this exclusive clip from the finale, which again displays the great deadpan chemistry between Andre Braugher and Kyra Sedgwick — not to mention how good both Terry Crews and Chelsea Peretti are at reacting to things — the two old rivals square off in close quarters. Enjoy.

'Rick & Morty' invade 'The Simpsons' couch gag

The Dan Harmon Adult Swim characters invade 742 Evergreen Terrace in new video

"The Simpsons" has had fun in recent years turning over its couch gag to guest animators, and this weekend, it's the turn of Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, who bring in the heroes of their great Adult Swim comedy "Rick and Morty" to stop by 742 Evergreen Terrace. If you can't wait til Sunday — and/or are looking for some good "Simpsons"-related news in the wake of this morning's Harry Shearer developments — here it is. And if you've never seen "Rick and Morty" before, prepare to be very confused and possibly horrified.

Why I'll miss staying up to ridiculous hours to review 'Mad Men'

Memories of many late nights covering TV's most densely-layered drama

NOTE: This is going to be the most inside-y of inside baseball columns, but so many people over the years have asked me what it's like to write about "Mad Men" — particularly in these later, screener-less seasons — that I wanted to put together some personal memories of the experience. If you understandably just want to read about the show itself, I've written a ton, including reviews of every single episode (the first three seasons on my old blog, everything else here at HitFix), picks for the best episodes, an essay on the distinct moment in TV history in which "Mad Men" debuted, recent interviews with Matthew Weiner and Jon Hamm, and even an entire chapter of my book (which will have an updated version in the fall to discuss the end of this show and "Breaking Bad").

This Sunday night should be the last time for a very long time that I am up at a ridiculous hour on a Sunday writing about an episode of television. Starting next weekend, I get to sleep again.

But if the trade-off is more sleep for no more "Mad Men," I'm not sure I'm ready to do that. In my career, there is no show I have enjoyed writing about more than this one, even as the circumstances under which I wrote about it became increasingly difficult as the years went on.

Review: FOX's 'Wayward Pines' a town of second-hand mysteries

Matt Dillon can't get out of a town that's not interesting enough for the secret to matter

In FOX's "Wayward Pines," a Secret Service agent played by Matt Dillon finds himself trapped in a remote Idaho town from which he's not allowed to leave. No one will tell him why he can't go, nor why any of the other weird things happen in a place where the residents are paranoid, bloodthirsty, and under constant surveillance.

Firewall & Iceberg, Episode 282: 'Wayward Pines,' 'Bessie' & 'Mad Men'

Dan and Alan predict how things might end for Don, Peggy and the rest


Happy Tuesday Wednesday, boys and girls! We actually started recording this week's Firewall & Iceberg Podcast yesterday, but the Skype connection dropped out so often that we eventually tabled the thing and hoped conditions would improve today. They did not, but we powered through anyway, so you could hear us discuss "Wayward Pines," HBO's "Bessie," and the penultimate "Mad Men." And as a bonus, you can have fun playing Spot the Edit!

We should be back on Friday to talk about the upfronts, and next week we'll do a farewell to "Mad Men" podcast, so start sending in those questions.

'CSI' to conclude with two-hour special, Ted Danson moving to 'CSI: Cyber'

Original castmembers like William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger will return for farewell

CBS owes a great deal of its success over the past 15 years to the original "CSI," which is why it's getting the grand farewell treatment its spin-offs didn't. "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" has been canceled, but there will be a two-hour finale special on September 27, bringing back original castmembers including William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger.
