The last time Frank Darabont launched a basic cable drama it was AMC’s The Walking Dead. That went amazingly well for Darabont … until it didn’t. Now the director of The Shawshank Redemption and The Mist is back with his new TNT period drama Mob City, a coppers and gangsters tale starring Jon Bernthal that’s set in 1947 Los Angeles. Mob City premieres Dec. 4 and has an unusual »

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! stars won a chance to spend the night in the Jungle Arms recently.
The celebrities were split into teams and took part in a quiz called 'If You Don't Know Me By Now' to win the chance to visit the camp pub, while Laila Morse chose a gold ball from a tombola drum to become the quiz master - who automatically won a ticket.
The blue team consisted of David Emanuel, Joey Essex, Rebecca Adlington, Steve Davis and Vincent Simone, while their rivals, the red team, were Kian Egan, Alfonso Ribeiro, Amy Willerton, Lucy Pargeter and Matthew Wright.
Among the questions were what style of dance Simone is famous for, which year Princess Diana wore the dress Emanuel designed, and which soap Egan's wife was in.
The blue team ended up winning, meaning that they were able to visit the Jungle Arms with Morse. »

Tony Musante, the popular character actor who was a fixture in Italian films and TV series, has died in a New York hospital at age 77. Musante, who brought intensity to all of his roles, was driven more by artistic satisfaction than a desire to make the big money. He made a splash with U.S. audiences in 1967 playing a thug who terrorizes passengers on a New York City subway train in the film The Incident. He won acclaim for his role as a gay man who is wrongly convicted and executed for murder in the 1968 Frank Sinatra film The Detective. He also had a co-starring role with George C. Scott in the 1971 crime film The Last Run and starred in director Dario Argento's 1970 cult classic The Bird With the Crystal Plumage. In 1973 he reluctantly starred in the TV series Toma about a maverick cop. Despite the show's ratings success, »

For Josh Gad, who grew up during the "Disney Renaissance" of the late '80s and '90s, playing scene-stealing talking snowman named Olaf in "Frozen" is a childhood dream come true -- getting a song in a Disney movie, that is, not playing a living, breathing snowman. And while Disney has ceded the top spot in the animated movie landscape to Pixar in recent years, "Frozen" feels like a return to the same kind of classic Disney magic that Gad grew up with, only with a few modern twists.
Like "The Little Mermaid," "Frozen" is inspired by a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, and tells the story of two royal sisters Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Broadway star Idina Menzel). When Elsa's ability to create ice and snow (and her inability to control it) freezes over their kingdom, Anna must set out to find Elsa and reverse the eternal winter. »

"Beauty and the Beast" ended its fall season with the rather heartbreaking finale, "Man or Beast." Even though the good guys took down Agent Bob Reynolds and save the beasts, Catherine and Vincent are both alone and broken at the end.
Find out what happens in this recap.
Shockingly, Vincent isn't dead.
It takes far more than just one little bomb to take out a beast like Vincent. You see, the bomb was meant to deal with one soldier/beast. That bomb didn't take into account that another beast might not want to get incinerated.
And Tori didn't want to die in a fiery blaze. Double-beast action got the good guys out before everything went boom.
Two wrongs don't make a right
Plus, two beasts in Cat's apartment don't make her happy -- even if one of them is Vincent. With Vincent gunning for Catherine's father and Tori »

Boardwalk Empire finishes its fourth season confident in its imperial phase. Here's Michael's review...

4.12 Farewell Daddy Blues
Of the ninety-four songs recorded by Ma Rainey, around a tenth mention ‘mama’, ‘papa’ or ‘daddy’ in the title. It makes her a rather handy contemporary reference for a season in which parental relationships have been integral and one in which their eventual severing has been inevitable. Farewell Daddy Blues, which takes its name from a 1924 Rainey recording, brings such concerns to their climax and completes the painful dissections where necessary.
Capone finally got Torrio’s blessing to take over the business. It took a hail of bullets to convince poor Johnny that the new world that Prohibition had created was a little too rich for an old man and more suited to his young protégé’s singular talents. The handover has come »
(Spoiler Alert) Brian, the Griffin family's anthropomorphic, acerbic, and possibly-alcoholic dog, was killed on Sunday's Family Guy episode, "Life of Brian." Fan fallout has been swift, but we'd like to stay above the fray and instead remember Brian as he was: Witty, occasionally soused, and a devoted Prius driver. Road to Rhode Island In which we learn of Brian's tragic backstory: He was born in a puppy mill, and his mother was later taxidermied and turned into an end table by her owners. Whether this is responsible for Brian's drinking habit - and by extension, his immortal line, "Whose leg »

Oliver Davis counts down the best ever casino films...
5. Ocean’s Eleven
It’s got more stars than a sky-gazing evening with Brian Cox, Ocean’s Eleven was a dream team-up movie with as-yet-unmatched ‘name’ power.
George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Julia Roberts…even Bernie Mac, the 2001 remake even surpassed Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.’s original. Flashy, Soderbergh-slick and with a twisting Las Vegas casino heist climax, Ocean’s Eleven was successful enough to spawn two sequels…which makes the current Ocean’s count around 36.
At the Casino Royale, James Bond (Daniel Craig) is up against Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) in a high-stakes game of poker. It’s so tense, the bad guy cries blood. Which is how all villains should weep.
The casino setting is a Bond movie staple, so it’s a smart convention to embrace for Craig’s first outing as the character. »

These should be banner times for the TV news organizations — Obamacare crises are good for ratings — but the newsies seem too caught up in internal melodramas and scheduling shuffles to notice.
Even that paragon of stability in the news business, “60 Minutes,” recently found itself issuing apologies for mistakes on a high-profile topic — something that may happen once a generation.
But then everybody seems to have their problems these days. As CNN augments top staffing and launches shows, the network is understandably prickly about Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart lobbing nightly grenades its way, and bloggers second-guessing strategy. Fox News is busily realigning its pontificators in its avid search for a sub-70-year-old demo even as Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly feud over Tea Party tactics.
Meanwhile NBC’s newsies are assessing their new boss, a young Brit named Deborah Turness, even as MSNBC unveils new hosts, including a buoyant Ronan Farrow, »

Loads of Zygons? An epic storyline? Christopher Eccleston? What's your wishlist for the most anticipated episode ever? And, equally, what do you not want to see?
Doing anything on Saturday night? Me neither. Thought I'd alphabetise the spice cabinet, or maybe reorganise the sock drawer ... Not really. The long-awaited Doctor Who 50th birthday special, The Day of the Doctor – with Daleks, Zygons, Billie Piper, Elizabeth I, the time war and a buy-two-get-three Smith/Tennant/Hurt party-pack of Doctors – finally arrives at 7.50pm on BBC1. But what can we expect? Writing strictly from the perspective of someone who avoids all trailers in case it spoils anything, here are five things I'd love, and five things I could really do without …

Fifty years ago, Variety, in its own unique way, put a price tag on what the marathon television news coverage and abrupt shuttering of film, TV and legit productions cost showbiz in the wake of John F. Kennedy’s assassination: $40 million.
But bottom-line considerations were superfluous to the shock in Hollywood on Nov. 22, 1963, when the entire industry, like the rest of the nation, virtually ground to a halt. The headline on the Nov. 25, 1963, edition of Daily Variety (the first edition to follow the Friday assassination) said it all: “All Showbiz Mourns Kennedy.”
The industry was much more divided between Democrats and Republicans then, but Kennedy, more than any of his predecessors up to that point, seemed to recognize the dynamic between entertainment and politics, giving showbiz figures the presidential spotlight in a way carried on by his successors. (Next week, President Obama is scheduled to visit DreamWorks.) On the calendar »

Like most Americans living today, I was born after November 22, 1963, so I don't remember John F. Kennedy and can't tell you where I was when news broke of his assassination. So here's what I know about the man, his presidency, and his death, thanks to the history professors of Hollywood.
Let me see if I have this right: JFK was a handsome man with the charisma of a movie star. (Indeed, he had connections to Hollywood through his father, a onetime movie producer; through his brother-in-law Peter Lawford and fellow Rat Packer Frank Sinatra; and through his torrid affair with Marilyn Monroe.) Through his youth, good looks, charisma, and forward-looking rhetoric, he inspired a nation to stop wearing hats, build rockets to the moon, and join the Peace Corps. His even more attractive, youthful, stylish, and patrician wife Jackie swept out the dowdy cobwebs of the Eisenhower years and turned »

That’s Bill Cosby’s performance itinerary for the past two weeks. Then come the next two weeks. Nov. 21: Virginia Beach, Va. Nov. 23: Columbia, S.C. Nov. 29: Las Vegas. Nov. 30: Boston.
In between, on Nov. 23, Comedy Central will air “Far From Finished,” Cosby’s first televised comedy special in three decades. Need a milestone for the last time a live Cosby performance was recorded for air? You’d be hard-pressed to find a better one than this: “The Cosby Show” hadn’t yet premiered on NBC. (That last special, “Himself,” provided the basis of the material for the show widely thought to have saved the television sitcom.)

Episode 8: “Love and Marriage”
Written by Tyler Cunningham
Directed by Michael Apted
Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on Showtime
Characters on Masters of Sex are prone to syntactically ambiguous pronouncements. In “All Together Now,” this one stands out: “I’m not discussing my sex life with you.” Those words pass between William and Virgnia, who quite suddenly fold themselves into their own study with little fanfare. Actually, no fanfare whatsoever: in the episode’s opening seconds, they are literally mid-coitus, and apparently not for the first time. The ostensible central couple of the series has made a serious move into practice, and though we see the moment they make that decision (the previous episode’s final scene), we skip the rest of the foreplay and get right in on the action.
Many freshman seasons struggle with pacing, »

In a bit of surprising news, it sounds like AMC and Seth Rogen are working on an adaptation of Garth Ennis‘ comic Preacher. So far, Preacher has turned out to be a challenging comic to adapt — an attempt to turn it into a film and another to make an HBO series fizzled. Still, its fans are passionate about it, and I would guess there are probably a lot of Preacher fans who also read The Walking Dead.
Radio Times surveyed readers to ask their favorite Doctor and companions. David Tennant came in first while Rose was picked as favorite companion, making me question their judgement. (Captain Jack came in seventh — ahead of Martha Jones, Rory Williams, K-9 and current companion Clara Oswald).
Come on, Whovians, how can you prefer the entitled one?

The title for this week’s Masters of Sex installment comes from a delightful song by Frank Sinatra that addresses how the matters of love and marriage go together like a horse and carriage. However, despite the song’s inclusion in a scene involving Vivian Scully dancing to Ol’ Blue Eyes, the title is an ironic suggestion given the episode’s stark juxtaposition of the two. Although the show is stuck within the conservative mores of the 1950s, the notion that the covenant between man and wife signifies love does not attest to several of the characters within the show’s ensemble.
“Love and Marriage” is also an exciting and very full episode of Showtime’s drama, a rebound from the mawkish soap opera that weighed down last week’s hour. The 59-minute episode, the longest of the show’s run so far, is complete with a divorce, a marriage »
