'The Americans' producers on season 3: 'It may be that our sense of bad is changing'

Breaking down what the finale did to Martha, Paige, Philip and more with Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg

FX's "The Americans" just completed a third season (here's my finale review) that was as emotionally rich as the series has ever been, but that at times to my mind suffered from an over-abundance of problems for its KGB protagonists to deal with. When I got on the phone with showrunners Joel Field and Joe Weisberg, we talked about where they left things involving Paige, Martha, Stan, Nina, and, of course, Philip and Elizabeth, about why they don't feel there's too much going on, how much longer they see their story going, and a lot more.

Amy Schumer killed it as Mrs. Coach in 'Friday Night Lights' parody

Every bit of last night's "Inside Amy Schumer" season 3 premiere was brilliant (and spoke to why Comedy Central ordered a fourth season yesterday), from the opening musical number "Milk Milk Lemonade" to the all-star sketch that gave the episode its title, "Last F*ckable Day." But as a TV critic and "Friday Night Lights" fan, I had a particular soft spot for "Football Town Nights," which reunited Schumer with Josh Charles (her co-star from last year's dead-on Aaron Sorkin parody "The Foodroom") for a "Friday Night Lights" parody that featured Schumer's incredible Connie Britton impression (helped by the various wine glasses), but had a much bigger topic on its mind:
