Exclusive Person of Interest Sneak Peek: Why Is Shaw Chained Up?

16 December 2014 11:06 AM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Person of Interest's Shaw definitely doesn't like being tied down.

On Tuesday's episode, which serves as both the midseason finale and the first in a three-part trilogy of episodes, Shaw (Sarah Shahi) isn't taking so well to having been tranquilized by Root (Amy Acker) in the previous episode. And she takes her anger out on Finch (Michael Emerson).

Sarah Shahi Teases Person of Interest: 'Things Get Real Nasty, Real Quick'

11 November 2014 9:11 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Tonight on Person of Interest (CBS, 10/9c), Shaw takes a particular interest in the Poi as she gets swept up in a heist that at the very least threatens to blow someone’s Samaritan-safe cover and for certain tees up an “immense” twist for the remainder of Season 4. Sarah Shahi shared with TVLine a preview of the Shaw-centric hour.

Let’S Kill Ward’S Wife Trailer: Patrick Wilson, Scott Foley and Donald Faison Try to Get Away with Murder

4 November 2014 8:57 AM, PST | | See recent news »

It seems as though Patrick Wilson is learning a lot about killing people lately.  Katherine Heigl teaches him a thing or two about making a seductive con artist disappear in the trailer for Home Sweet Hell and now he’s busy Googling “getting away with murder” in the first trailer for Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife.  The film is Scott Foley’s feature directorial debut and chronicles what happens when a group of friends decide they’ve had it with Ward’s (Donald Faison) wife.  She isn’t a nice person, she’s selfish, she’s mean and a bad mom, too, so why not kill her? The film definitely doesn’t look like a masterpiece, but it stars Wilson, Faison, Foley, James Carpinello, Greg Grunberg and Amy Acker, and there’s just something fun about watching them try to get away with murder together.  Hit the jump to »

Person of Interest Season 4 deftly balances global and local stories

29 October 2014 5:09 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Jim Caviezel

Despite starting out in an episodic manner, as Person of Interest progressed through its first three seasons, it began to delve deeper into the ramifications of its premise. The show explored both the effects of a team operating in the grey area, or completely outside of, the law in stopping criminals, as well as the consequences of the existence of an AI like The Machine, the latter of which culminated in a season three finale that saw our heroes scattered into the wind, on the run from a newly powerful Samaritan. With the season premiere firmly establishing the group’s new identities, the subsequent episodes of Season 4 have done a great job to date of exploring the effects of Samaritan’s rise, while revisiting the smaller scale stories of New York crime.

The emergence of the Brotherhood as a legitimate threat this season has been a great way »

Person of Interest Video: Root Sheds Her Latest Persona... and Then Some

21 October 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Tonight on Person of Interest (CBS, 10/9), Finch asks the question many of us have wondered ever since Samaritan went online: How is Root able to flit around from persona to persona, while the rest of Team Machine is locked into one identity apiece?

In this above sneak peek, Root (played by Amy Acker) explains her “fluid” state as she sheds her Un translator’s red locks… and more… while Finch (Michael Emerson) does his best to avert his male gaze.

Elsewhere in the episode, Jason Ritter (Parenthood) guest-stars as the Poi, a gifted political pollster whose typically ironclad predictions have suddenly started going very wrong. »

Person of Interest: Season Four Ratings

8 October 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last season, Person of Interest moved to Tuesday nights and lost Taraji P. Henson. The show also lost a lot in the ratings. Will the numbers continue to fall or will they rise with a new lead-in? Is it essentially guaranteed to be renewed for a fifth season by CBS (because of syndication) or, could it be cancelled? Stay tuned.

On Person of Interest, a presumed dead former-cia agent (Jim Caviezel) and a mysterious billionaire (Michael Emerson) work together to prevent violent crimes in New York City. The rest of the cast includes Kevin Chapman, Sarah Shahi, and Amy Acker.

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 »

Person of Interest's Kevin Chapman Talks Fusco's New Partner, New Look

7 October 2014 7:09 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Tonight on Person of Interest (CBS, 10/9c), Detective Lionel Fusco finds himself under the tutelage of the latest Poi, a professional “wingman” who has his work cut out for him (what with his client’s taste in sad ties and Florsheim shoes). The result is what Kevin Chapman hails as a lighter “departure” for the ever-evolving drama.

Here, Chapman — a onetime TVLine Performer of the Week — shares his thoughts on Fusco’s surprising partner in legit crimefighting, the new captain and what separates badass Root from badass Shaw.

Person of Interest Sneak Peek: Will Finch Do The Machine a 'Favor'?

How does one say “no” to The Machine? (Does one?)

Person of Interest‘s Harold Finch (played by Michael Emerson) is met with that quandary in this Tuesday’s episode (CBS, 10/9c), when Root (Amy Acker) pays a visit to the new “Batcave” (spartan as it is) to ask a favor on behalf of Her.

CBS' Stalker: Will You Follow It?

1 October 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

I hope you weren’t planning on sleeping well tonight, TVLine readers. After watching Stalker, I don’t see how you can.

The CBS procedural drama, which debuted Wednesday at 10/9c, was as paranoia-inducing as its title would suggest — but will you pursue the series in the weeks to come?

The drama focuses on the Lapd’s Threat Assessment Unit, led by Lieutenant Beth Davis (Nikita‘s Maggie Q). The unit handles all stalking cases that make waves in the city, and in this debut hour alone, the team has got its hands full.

Person of Interest: Amy Acker Ponders 'Her' New Master Plan, Root's Sexuality

30 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

As CBS’ Person of Interest (Tuesdays at 10/9c) opened Season 4, it was Root, of all people, who needed to light a fire under Team Machine leader Harold Finch, who in the wake of Samaritan going online (and given the lives lost to date) had abandoned his faith.

But as Root noted, she, Harold et al still “have a god in this fight,” and with those words she nudged him toward caring about the numbers again.

Person of Interest, Ep. 4.01: “Panopticon” sees the team still saving lives

Person of Interest, Season 4, Episode 1: “Panopticon”

Directed by Richard J. Lewis

Written by Erik Mountain and Greg Plageman

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm Et on CBS

Over the course of Person of Interest’s three seasons, the Machine, despite the best efforts of itself, Finch, and Root, has been spotted by a number of individuals, resulting in its disconnection from the government last season after the public learned of its existence. That void was filled by Greer and his system Samaritan, whose first action was to decimate the immediate threat of Vigilance before setting their sights on Finch, Root, Shaw, and Reese. The fourth season premiere picks up with the four of them living under new identities, in a solid start to what promises to be another strong season.

Reese’s potential alliance with Elias is an exciting prospect for the new season. Despite their differences, »

Triple the Patrick

Manuel here to check in with “The Prom King” himself whose latest passion project films have been making news lately:

First up and still looking for distribution is Stretch, the Joe Carnahan film he shot in just under twenty-three days with Chris Pine, which is drumming up interest by releasing new images and new clips. Carnahan, who shot the film for Universal, has found himself needing to find alternate distribution for it, and from the plot description (and the weirdly fascinating pics released) one can see why: “The under-$5 million pic follows a chauffeur who’s deep in debt to a bookie. In the hope of scoring a big tip, he picks up a risky job ferrying around a mysterious billionaire (Pine) who wants to sell his book of criminal contacts. The driver tries his best to fulfill all of his client’s requests, but the night takes ever stranger turns, »

Person of Interest: Season 3 Blu-ray – The Most Intense Season to Date

15 September 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The third season of every series is a pivotal point. Networks are anxious to see if the series will go into syndication, while fans are wondering if their honeymoon relationship with said series has run its course. Person of Interest’s third season surpassed its predecessors in many ways. We learned the truth about Harold, new enemies emerged and old enemies became unlikely allies. Season 3 was the proverbial pay off for being a loyal fan. And watching it in a marathon on blu-ray is a twenty-three hour treat.

At the end of season 2, we had several looming questions. What would become of Agent Carter’s unlikely alliance with Carl Elias? Now that Root had successfully made a connection to The Machine through its system reboot, how would that impact Harold and Reese’s mission? Will Hr be a serious problem through its new “partnership” with the Russians? And, just what »
