28 July 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. and The CW are staging a (super) family reunion.

Ahead of Supergirl‘s return on October 10 – when the Melissa Benoist-fronted series will complete the jump from CBS to The CW, joining DC brethren Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash – we now have our first look at Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf) suited and booted as the Man of Steel.

Writing his name in the history books, Hoechlin now joins a very select roster of actors that have donned the famous cape, including George Reeves, Christopher Reeve, Dean Cain, Tom Welling, Brandon Routh and, of course, Henry Cavill, who returns next year with Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

Bones Round Table: Do You Like Booth in Glasses?

18 July 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Booth tried to hide his need for glasses while the team chased a murderer and a jewel thief, and Hodgins made an amazing discovery on Bones Season 11 Episode 21.

Our TV Fanatics Ashley Sumerel and Christine Orlando are joined by Pam from Cbr Radio to talk poltergeists, men in glasses, and their favorite scenes from “The Jewel in the Crown.”

Did you think there was a poltergeist, seismic tremors or something else entirely?

Pam: No, I thought it was something to do with the body they found and wasn't even thinking that it was Hodgins’ body/legs causing the freak things happening. Delighted that he is feeling movement and hope he walks again.

Ashley: I figured it was something else. Actually, I really figured it was something to do with Hodgins' healing process, and thank goodness it was that and not actually a poltergeist!

Christine: I don’t believe in ghosts »

22 June 2016 12:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Supergirl’s second season has just cast a DC veteran in the role of the President of the United States and it is rather, ahem, wonderful.

Lynda Carter, the Wonder Woman of the 1970s series based on the Amazon Princess, has been cast and will make her introduction in the third episode of the season before appearing in multiple episodes.

Executive producers Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti previously stated a few months ago they wanted to cast Carter as the President in the first season, but could not fit her in their schedule, especially as the second season was up in the air at the time. Now that Supergirl has been renewed, and is moving to The CW, they’re able to finally make that wish come true.

21 June 2016 3:49 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Rumors about Lynda Carter's casting on Supergirl Season 2 have been swirling for a while.

Of course she cannot play Wonder Woman, but she'll still be wonderful!

Carter will be playing the President of the United States when Supergirl returns for its second season on The CW network.

If you are unaware of her history, Carter played the best incarnation of Wonder Woman Ever in the 1070s live action TV series of the same name.

She will be joining a well established force of former superheroes who have already found life on Earth-3 with Melissa Benoist's Supergirl.

Former Superman Dean Cain played Kara's adoptive father (who was subsequently killed).

And former Supergirl Helen Slater plays Cain's wife and Kara's adoptive mother.

There hasn't been a lot of news about what storylines to expect from the upcoming season.

Superman to appear in Supergirl Season 2

6 June 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Supergirl gets ready to move to The CW in the fall, the hero’s famous cousin is now set to appear in its second season. Superman will play a role of the first two episodes of the returning series.

Throughout season one Supergirl, Jimmy Olsen and other characters frequently mentioned Superman and Clark Kent. He would either be seen from a distance, a hallucination as a young boy or even interact with Kara through an online message service, offering advice in times of need. Now the search is underway for an actor to portray the Man of Steel in Supergirl’s premiere episodes.

Executive producer Andrew Kriesberg said “Greg (Berlanti), Ali (Adler) and I are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly-more-famous alter ego to the world of Supergirl. Superman will be appearing in the first two episodes of the new season and we cannot wait to »

‘Supergirl’ Casting Superman for Season 2

6 June 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Superman is officially coming to “Supergirl” in Season 2, with casting currently underway for the role of Clark Kent/Kal-El, the cousin of titular heroine Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist).

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg released a statement on behalf of the show’s producing team, which includes EPs Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler. “Greg, Ali and I are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly-more-famous alter ego to the world of ‘Supergirl,'” Kreisberg said. “Superman will be appearing in the first two episodes of the new season and we cannot wait to see who next dons the red cape!”

The iconic DC Comics hero was often mentioned in Season 1 of “Supergirl,” but was only ever shown from afar or backlit to obscure his face, with the show’s producers frequently stating their desire to establish Kara as a hero in her own right without relying on her more famous cousin. »

Masters of Illusion: Season Six Ratings

21 May 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

After many years, The CW revived the Masters of Illusion TV show for new seasons on Friday nights. It beat the odds and was renewed and is now in its third season on the network. Will it be cancelled or renewed for another year? Stay tuned.

Masters of Illusion debuted on Pax TV in 2000 and ran for two seasons before moving to MyNetworkTV for a third year. Dean Cain is the host of this program that features magicians as they perform escapes, large-scale illusions, and sleight-of-hand tricks for a live audience.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see »
