  • The Flash cast Wentworth Miller and more

    The Flash is racing to TV this fall and all eyes are on The CW's Scarlet Speedster. Hailing from Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns and Andrew Kreisberg and starring Grant Gustin as Barry Allen with a supporting cast of Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Rick Cosnett and Carlos Valdes, the new drama is set in the same universe as Arrow and fans can expect that fact to be very noticeable. But don't expect this to be Arrow 2.0. "We weren't looking to do the same show twice," Kreisberg said. For The Flash, he said they wanted somebody who was "more normal" to embody the "spirit of hope," and who is "just somebody you would fall in love with." "Grant »

  • Game of Thrones Season 5 Director finally named

    Writing this article sort of bums me out because I’m reminded that there are another nine months or so before Game of Thrones Season 5 premieres.  That being said, the gears on this show run year-round and the directing staff seems to have been firmed up.  And it appears that, in addition to a certain character many people were expecting to see at the end of Season 4, a few of the directors of your favorite episodes won’t be coming back for Season 5. For instance, Neil Marshall (who handles a lot of the big battle episodes) is skipping this season.  So is Alex Graves. Even showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are staying behind their laptops (and away from the cameras) next year.  Hit the jump for more on the Game of Thrones Season 5 directors list. As Entertainment Weekly points out, David Nutter is the only returning veteran of the show. »

  • SNL continues firing it's freshmen

    Heads are rolling like a Game of Thrones finale at Saturday Night Live this week.

    Hot on the heels of firing rookie Brooks Wheelan yesterday, NBC’s sketch-comedy series has dropped fellow featured players Nöel Wells and John Milhiser heading into its 40th season this fall, according to Deadline.

    Wells and Milhiser were among eight featured players — alongside Wheelan, Beck Bennett, Mike O’Brien, Kyle Mooney, Sasheer Zamata and Colin Jost — who debuted during SNL‘s critically maligned Season 39.

    Milhiser was mostly relegated to the background during his SNL tenure. Wells got a strong start in the Season 39 premiere playing »

  • True Blood Recap: Underground Roller-Coaster

    For those of us last remaining True Blood loyalists, season seven has felt like nothing so much as sneaking into an amusement park after hours. It's dark, it's scary, and it'd be nice if we had more friends here, but man, has this all-night joyride been exhilarating. This dark park is Ours, and we should maybe feel bad for anyone who got back on the charter bus too soon, you know? Because "Death Is Not the End" was probably the best True Blood episode of the entire series so far. I realize these are bold words, but just go ahead and deal with it, hater. This episode was apex True Blood. And that's without male nudity.Okay, I guess I should at least attempt to defend my argument here. First off, no season of True Blood has been more consistently coherent than this one.  Season seven has basically thrown its »

  • Christopher Walken to join NBC' "Hook"

    NBC has busted out its weapon of choice.

    The network announced that it has cast Oscar winner Christopher Walken as Captain Hook in its live musical production of Peter Pan, which will air Dec. 4. "Funny, right?" NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt said at the Television Critics Association fall previews on Sunday. "He's one of the most unique actors... but he's just really a song and dance man at heart... It'll be the first tap-dancing Captain Hook you've ever seen."

  • 'Extant' Premieres tonight on CBS, will it live up to the hype?

    I can't quite recommend CBS' science fiction miniseries Extant, which debuts tonight. I have misgivings about it — the lead performances are a tad opaque, and the script feels as though it's telling two separate stories that don't immediately seem as though they'll connect in a graceful way — but because CBS only sent the pilot to critics, who knows how well-founded they are? Future episodes might put my worries to rest and make the opening chapter seem like brilliant seed-planting in retrospect, or Extant could lose air slowly, like a ruptured spacecraft's hull.At least tonight's premiere gives you a sense of what mode Extant is working in — creepy-atmospheric, early Polanski horror — and verifies that CBS has indeed thrown a ton of money at the production, hiring Oscar-winner Halle Berry to play the astronaut heroine and Goran Visjnic, Camryn Manheim and Looper's Pierce Gagnon to back her up, »

  • 'Turn' Showrunner snitches secrets of season 2

    The first season of AMC’s Turn wasn’t exactly the shot heard ’round the world. Facing a slate of popular Sunday-night competition like Game of Thrones and The Good Wife, Craig Silverstein’s Revolutionary War drama had to fight for respect—something it ultimately won with a riveting finale that helped secure a second season. Jamie Bell stars as Abraham Woodhull, a Long Island cabbage farmer initially straddling the fence as the American uprising turns into a full-fledged war. His father (Kevin McNally) and wife (Meegan Warner) are staunch Tory loyalists; his childhood friends, including the love of his »

    The Killing is finally letting Holder speak his native tongue.

    When the ex-amc drama debuts its fourth and final season on anything-goes Netflix later this summer, Joel Kinnaman’s tortured, streetwise detective will no longer have to watch his language.

    “We can curse now,” enthuses series creator Veena Sud of her newfound freedom on Netflix. “All of us were ecstatic because, in this world, someone like Holder would say the F-bomb quite a lot, which he does this season… Joel, especially, was very happy about that.”

  • 'Community' coming to hulu? No it's not

    NBC canceled the internet's most beloved television series Community back in May, but there was a glimmer of hope that Hulu might resurrect the Greendale Human Beings. Alas, that glimmer is no more: TVLine reports that Hulu has "abandoned" talks for a potential sixth season for the show, meaning all that "#sixseasonsandamovie" hashtagging has likely been for naught. Sony is still on the hunt for a new home for the series, but the clock is ticking — the cast's contracts expire June 30. Somewhere at Netflix, a telephone is ringing »

  • CBS reveals it's fall premiere dates and lineup

    CBS, which has traditionally rolled out just about all of its fall series during premiere week, is mixing things up some this year by stretching out its launches over a six-week period.

    “The addition of ‘Thursday Night Football’ provides the flexibility to strategically roll out our fall season in multiple waves, maximizing promotional platforms and scheduling opportunities to give our new and returning series the best possible launch,” Nina Tassler, chairman, CBS Entertainment, said in a statement.

    The fall schedule rollout, announced Tuesday, will see the Eye net using the season finales of summer dramas “Under the Dome” and “Extant” during premiere week. The initial week of the television season (Sept. 22-28) will also include an hourlong premiere (two back-to-back original episodes) of “The Big Bang Theory” on a Monday.

  • Six never before seen scenes from Breaking Bad now in Bluray set

    The equivalent of tomes have already been written on the virtues of AMC's "Breaking Bad," so with the June 3 release of the epic Blu-ray box set of the entire series, it seems appropriate to focus less on what we already know -- that, duh, the show's good -- and more on what goodies can be plundered in the set's extensive special features.While each episode has a commentary track to accompany it, there's also a bonus disc specifically geared toward the lead-up to the second half of Season Five, also known as the Final Eight. Here are a few of the highlights:-"Shocking Moments": As viewers we love to endlessly discuss and debate the moments from our favorite shows that completely broadsided us. But it's easy to forget that the cast from these shows undergoes a double-take when confronted with a first glimpse of upcoming episode scripts. Here everyone from Bryan Cranston, »

The greenlight comes halfway through the show’s initial eight-episode run, which has drawn solid ratings across Showtime’s linear and on-demand platforms.

  • Jason Ritter said to be making an appearance on "Girls"

    Jason Ritter spawn of famous funny man John Ritter is said to be making a cameo appearance on Lena Dunham's baby "Girls". Jason who stars in ABC's "The Parenthood" has long been a hit with fans due to his boy  next door looks. Nothing has leaked out of what Jason's role will be in the show but it has been said he will make his appearance in the sixth episode of the fourth season coming later this year. Let the rumors begin of what Jason's ties to the show will be. Personally we think he'll play someone's love interest, or they might throw us for a hook and tie him into some Lena awkward scene. Season three of Girls was met with mixed criticism as Lena took to the show to make it mostly about her, the ratings took a small hit but expect things to be shaken back up this year to get back to those numbers HBO has gotten accustomed to.
