At the Golden Globes last weekend, host Ricky Gervais kept talking about how this was the last time he would be on stage for the awards ceremony, and he didn’t care about it at all.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 7 Trailer

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is returning for a seventh season on NBC next month, and the first trailer with new footage from the season premiere has finally arrived. It’s a throwback to cop shows of the 1980s, which feels appropriate since Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) has to go back to his early days as a patrolman after his nemesis Madeline Wuntch (Kyra Sedgwick) learned he only spent a month as a uniformed patrolman before becoming a detective. That’s a breach of NYPD rules, and the temporary demotion results in a little bit of confusion for Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and his team. Read More »
