Lena Dunham again says she expects to end Girls after Season 6

For the second time this year, Dunham says six seasons sounds about the right amount of time to devote to the HBO series. “Never say never, but that is the way that we’re thinking about it right now and we’re starting to think about sort of how to wrap up the storylines of these particular young women,” Dunham said on the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show. “I started working on this show when I was 23, and now I’m going to be 30 so it kind of feels right that this show kind of sandwiched my 20s and then I go off into the world!"

The Grinder and Grandfathered appear similar, but couldn’t be more different

Rob Lowe’s The Grinder feels like a Fox comedy, while John Stamos' Grandfathered comes off as something you’d see on CBS, says Tim Goodman. Although they are both good, the problem is they both have premises that could be easily exhausted. "How long can you be a fake lawyer tormenting your younger brother and skirting the law?” Goodman says of The Grinder. As for Grandfathered, he says, "Think of every possible joke you can make about that, and it’s in the pilot, which makes the second episode — again, not sent to critics — something to worry a lot about.” PLUS: Grandfathered is half-assed while The Grinder is endearing, The Grinder is actually funny -- something rare among new fall sitcoms, Grandfathered is far sweeter than the marketing implies, Grandfathered lets John Stamos do what he’s great at, The Grinder is TV’s best new fall sitcom, The Grinder feels like it has more potential than Grandfathered, and why Fred Savage went back to acting.
