Question: I can’t wait for David and Maddie to finally get together on Moonlighting. The show will be even better then, don’t you think? Any idea if it’ll happen this season? —Fiona
Ausiello: I totally agree, Fi! The only bummer about the show is all that gnarly anticipation! But, we might get our wish for a David/Maddie – Daddie? – hook-up sooner than later: A new rival – David’s brother, no less! – hits on Maddie in the season premiere, and you don’t have to be a detective to »

Larry Hagman's Dallas co-star Brenda Strong is convinced the veteran actor will win his cancer battle, insisting: "He'll bounce back." The 80-year-old star announced in October (2011) he is receiving treatment for the illness but vowed to continue shooting his scenes for the hit show's relaunch next year (2012). Strong has been drafted in as a new addition to the Ewing family - playing Bobby's wife Ann - and she's revealed Hagman is bravely fighting his illness and is keeping a positive mood on set. She tells the Hollywood Reporter, "You know, his spirit astounds me. This man is so incredibly resilient. I have been doing scenes with him and his eyes are sparkling and he is on top of his game. And I know he is dealing with a tremendous amount of things in order to combat and deal with his health, but he is absolutely resilient and incredibly present »
 Today's TV Bits happens to be a bit heavy on Game of Thrones, but there's plenty of other good stuff in here too, I promise. After the jump: Rumor has it HBO plans to renew Game of Thrones for Seasons 3 and 4, and shoot them back-to-back Also, we've got shots of Kit Harrington on the GoT set in Iceland Plus, Maisie Williams explains Arya Stark's new look for Season 2 of GoT TNT drops an extended sneak peek of its upcoming drama Dallas -- yes, as in that Dallas Fox announces its midseason schedule, including premiere dates for Napoleon Dynamite, Alcatraz, and Touch Let's get through the non-Game of Thrones stuff first. TNT has dropped a two-and-a-half-minute "extended sneak peek" of Dallas, a revival of the classic prime time soap that ran from 1978 to 1991. It's not so much a reboot as a sequel, picking up years later with a new generation of the Ewing family. »

Keep telling yourself this is not a reboot. In a new extended trailer, TNT is primed to set the record straight that when Dallas returns to television after two decades away, it will be working to catch up where the series last left off – not start the tale of the Ewing’s and their wealth of dysfunction over again.
In this Dallas, J.R.(Larry Hagman) and Bobby (Patrick Duffy) continue on in Southfork, but now the focus has shifted to their sons, John Ross (Josh Henderson) and Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe), as the boys stake their claim on the Ewing name – albeit in disparate ways. John Ross, being the son of the more ruthless J.R., is interested solely in continuing to drill for oil, while Christopher, whose father is the kindhearted Bobby, sees his focus shifting toward alternative ...

The folks over at TNT are certainly excited about the new Dallas and they want you to get excited as well. As you've no doubt heard, TNT has ordered 10 episodes of the TV series. They shot the pilot earlier this year and are currently shooting the rest.
The new Dallas revolves around the "next generation" of Ewings (Josh Henderson and Jesse Metcalfe) but doesn't forget about the original Southfork power players (Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, and Linda Gray). Others in the series cast include: Jordana Brewster, Brenda Strong, Julie Gonzalo, and Marlene Forte.
Though we haven't seen any footage of them yet, original Dallas castmembers Steve Kanaly, Charlene Tilton, and Ken Kercheval are slated to appear in various capacities. The new Dallas will debut sometime next summer on TNT.
Here's the new trailer: »
Okay, "Dallas" was never exactly "Masterpiece Theater." It was a big, soap drama set in Texas that ran for 13 seasons and was such a massive hit that the question of who shot J.R. inspired one fan to offer star Larry Hagman 1 million British pounds to reveal the answer (he didn't know). While primetime soaps haven't hit the same highs since, it's no shock that TNT is trying to update the formula. The trailer promises oil, infighting and the usual soapy goodness, if you're into that sort of thing. Alas, too much of the trailer is taken up with »

The Ewing family is returning to mess with Texas. A new trailer for the coming series “Dallas” has just hit the web.
Based on the popular TV series “Dallas,” which aired from 1978-1991, five characters from the original show–played by actor Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, Charlene Tilton and Steve Kanaly–will reprise their roles in the soapy drama documenting the fierce rivalries and power struggles of a Dallas oil magnate and his family.
Although the trailer looks plenty dramatic, »

A new teaser for TNT's "Dallas" gives us some hints at how the show will handle its next-generation update of the saga of the Ewing family. It appears that apples haven't fallen far from trees.
The younger generation of Ewings is represented by Josh Henderson as J.R.'s (Larry Hagman) son, John Ross, who has the oil business in his blood, and Jesse Metcalfe as Bobby's (Patrick Duffy) adopted son Christopher, who wants to restore the Ewing name by other means. Like fathers, like sons.
The other new cast members are Julie Gonzalo as Christopher's fiancee, Rebecca; Jordana Brewster as Elena, whom both John Ross and Christopher have feelings for; and Brenda Strong as Bobby's wife, Ann.
The new trailer also includes the cast talking about what drew them to the new "Dallas," how it lines up with the old show and what viewers can expect.
"Dallas" debuts next summer on TNT. »
J.R. Ewing, I can’t quit you! In this latest trailer from TNT to help promote its 2012 reboot of Dallas, the actors opine about the show’s beginnings (I’ll admit, it’s a little corny) and what will set this one apart from the classic. Talk about a colossal challenge: Fortunately, Larry Hagman and Patrick Duffy will take care of a lot of the heavy lifting (thank goodness).
Does this get you excited for the reboot coming next summer?

Dallas: TNT Unveils New Trailer
TNT wants to take you back to Southfork next summer when Dallas returns to TV. Instead of going the new Charlie's Angels or Hawaii Five-0 route and rebooting the series, TNT has decided to create a continuation of the original Dallas, which ran from 1978 to 1991.
The new Dallas, which will premiere in the summer of 2012, jumps forward several years from where the original series ended. The Ewings still live at Southfork Ranch, but J.R. is now getting on his years and is in a sort of nursing home. Bobby is married to a new wife, Ann (Brenda Strong). His son, Christopher, and J.R.'s son, John Ross, are grown men and they're working hard to carry on the legacy of family squabbles. John Ross is determined to carry on his father's business of drilling for oil, while Christopher is more interested in alternative green technology. »
TNT has released this new extended sneak peek at "Dallas," coming to the channel in the summer of 2012. Famous for its ratings-grabbing cliffhangers, the original series was known for its wealth, seduction, scandal and intrigues. Set in the big state of Texas, TNT's new "Dallas" also lives life large and in the fast lane and brings a new generation of stars together with cast members from the original drama series. The series stars Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo and Brenda Strong, and they will be joined by iconic stars Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray and Larry Hagman as J.R. Ewing. »
The news of the BBC’s axing of Shooting Stars is incredibly sad for long-time fans of the surreal panel show fronted by Vic and Bob. While it’s probably fair to say that recent episodes were becoming a little stale, they were still punctuated by moments funnier than anything else on TV. If this is indeed the definitive end of the show, it’s a very sad day for fans of Vic and Bob’s unique style of comedy.
I’d also have to ask the BBC why Shooting Stars is the first show to go and not all the guff they shove out onto BBC Three….. But that’s another matter. We can only hope that with Shooting Stars being seen as redundant by the BBC, Vic and Bob will go onto bigger and better things and become inspired to do something a little different.

Bite-sized pieces of TV news for your afternoon/early evening enjoyment:
- "Nurse Jackie" star Edie Falco and her former "Sopranos" sister-in-law, Aida Turturro, will work together again on the Showtime series this season. Turturro will only appear in one "Jackie" episode, but it's a "pivotal" role. The show has also cast Oscar winner Joel Grey as a patient suffering from dementia. [Showtime]
In other TNT casting news, Jane Seymour, Peter Weller and Beau Bridges will all guest on the coming season of "Franklin & Bash." Seymour will play Bash's (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) hippie mom in an episode, while Bridges will reprise his role as Franklin's (Breckin Meyer) estranged dad in another. Weller will guest in the same episode as Bridges as an aging rock star. »
Two bits of casting news were announced today. First, Once Upon a Time is recruiting another former Lost star for a guest role. We know that Alan Dale (who played Charles Widmore in Lost) will be appearing as Prince Charming's father in episode 6. Today TV Guide announced that Emilie de Ravin, who played Claire Liddleton on Lost, will be appearing as Belle in an early 2012 episode of Once Upon a Time.
We'll be seeing Belle in the fairytale world and while details aren't really knnown as this time, we do know that she'll be interacting with Rumplestiltskin and the character of Gaston will also appear. Considering Once Upon a Time (recently picked up for a full season by ABC), is run by former Lost writers, I wouldn't be surprised to see more actors »
Next summer, TNT is taking a slightly different approach to a classic television series. While networks have rebooted shows like Hawaii Five-o and Charlie’s Angels, TNT is going a different route and resurrecting Dallas as a continuation of the original series. Not only will storyline continuity exist from the original series (which ended in 1991), but three of the show’s original actors are returning to reprise their roles: Larry Hagman (J.R. Ewing), Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing) and Linda Grey (Sue Ellen Shepard Ewing).
Brenda Strong (Desperate Housewives) joins the cast as the fourth member of the older generation (and Bobby’s new wife, Ann), while four young actors and actresses dominate the younger generation, consisting of J.R. and Bobby’s sons and their girlfriends. After taking a break after shooting the pilot, production on Dallas resumed recently and we had an opportunity to chat with Brenda about her role on the show, »
TNT has released another video about the new Dallas TV series. TNT has ordered 10 episodes for the first season and they'll debut next summer. The pilot was shot earlier this year and the nine remaining installments are currently in production.
The new Dallas series will revolve around conflict between John Ross (Josh Henderson), the son of Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) and J.R. (Larry Hagman), and Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe), the adopted son of Bobby (Patrick Duffy) and Pam (Victoria Principal, who's not involved with the new series). Other castmembers include Jordana Brewster, Brenda Strong, Julie Gonzalo, and Marlene Forte.
In the video, Cynthia Cidre, executive producer and creator of the TNT series, talks about bringing together the cast of the new show. It's interesting to note that Metcalfe originally auditioned for John Ross and a couple of the new actors initially auditioned via Skype video. »
