‘Keeping Up With The Randalls’ premieres at 9 p.m. tonight on Hallmark Channel!
Vampire Diaries fans, your summer of suffering is finally over — at least for one night. Kayla Ewell is taking some time off from boyfriend-stalking to star alongside big names like Roma Downey and Marion Ross in the Hallmark Channel original movie, Keeping Up With The Randalls! A life-long fan of Hallmark movies, Kayla tells HollywoodLife.com she’s excited to be in something her whole family can actually watch.
“My little nephews are so young — they’re seven and nine — and a lot of times, The Vampire Diaries can be a little scary for them,” she tells us. “We’d fast forward to just my parts, the parts they would like, but this Hallmark movie is something I can actually sit down with them and watch the whole thing.”
Kayla plays Alicia, a girl determined to impress »

The Beek is back — and channeling his inner-Sean Parker with a Law & Order: CI guest spot.
Before returning to TV full-time with the midseason ABC comedy Apartment 23, James Van Der Beek will pop up on a Social Network-flavored installment of the USA Network procedural, TVLine has exclusively learned.
The actor is set to play Rex Tamlyn, an overconfident, hard-partying playboy and partner in a Facebook-Like website devoted to “connecting people who share fleeting romantic encounters.” The pulled-from-the-headlines aspect of the episode involves a lawsuit surrounding a stolen idea. The not-so-true-to-life part: Two dead bodies turn up in the company’s office. »

Question: My gut is telling me that Beckett’s “shooting” in the Castle finale was staged — all part of an elaborate scheme to send her underground and shield her from the killer. Am I hot or cold? —Jeff
Ausiello: You’re freezing. Beckett was shot. This is no time for denial. Snap out of it!
Question: How shocked were you to find out about Lisa Edelstein leaving House? —A.
Ausiello: What on earth are you talking about? »

Every week on Nikita, we watch Lyndsy Fonseca portray Nikita’s Division mole, Alex. Lyndsy was kind enough to speak to TV Fanatic about all things Alex and Nikita. Every question that has lingered up to this date will be answered.
While you might think she’s a tough girl based on her acting, she’s actually incredibly sweet! In this interview, the 24-year-old talks to me about her character, the fate of Alex’s relationships, Jaden, Percy, and so much more!
Talk to me about Alex today vs. Alex at the beginning of the season.
Oh my gosh. She’s had quite a journey. I think the biggest difference is that in the beginning of the season I don’t think she had a reason to live. She didn’t care what happened to her. Now she’s grown up and found things to fight for, and she has »

By now, you’ve either rejoiced or thrown up in your own mouth several times at all of the Mikita action (Nikita and Michael, Maggie Q and Shane West respectively). Whichever side of the fence you’re on, the madness continues with the April 28th episode, Glass Houses. While hunting down the latest black box, Nikita encounters a guardian that has essentially abandoned her post, attempting to live a normal life with her family. This discovery inevitably makes Nikita wonder what life would be like if she never knew about Division and was just a normal civilian. Expect things to go haywire when Michael is forced to report the guardian’s treasonous behavior back to Percy.
Check out some images of the upcoming twentieth episode, which airs on April 28th.
Official Episode Description:
The CW’s Nikita resumes its freshman season this Thursday (at 9/8c) with “Covenants,” an episode so game-changing you might actually mistake it for a finale. But showrunner Craig Silverstein has a thing or two to say about that, telling TVLine that the shock-and-awe nature of this week’s hour is but the beginning of an explosive batch of season-ending installments. Said episodes may include a “Mikita” hookup, a Nikita/Alex breakup, and the imminent bust-up of Division.
Tvline | Let’s start with that steamy promo for “Covenants.” Having seen the episode, I know the answer, but for the fans: »

Alas, we are kind of already grown ups and never learned how to use a samurai sword so we're left to slay people with our measly words. Learn from our mistakes, people.
Anyways, let's get into the longer version of our recap which will include a lot of exclamation points at the end. Don't say we didn't warn you.
The episode opens with Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) giving Nikita a rundown of her first mission as a Division agent while practicing said mission with her team, including leader Brendan Fehr! Well, his name was Steven, but we're just going to call him Fehr so get used to it.
The mission is this (we think, it was kind of confusing at first, no?): Division was hired »
Welcome back, recruits! Thursday, Jan. 27's "Nikita's" episode, "Free," saw the introduction of a new love interest for Alex, a kiss, some interesting flashbacks and --what else?-- Michael kicking down a door!
"Nikita" became one of our must-watch shows after their fantastic mid-season finale which proved to be a total game-changer. Alex killed fellow recruit/nice guy Thom, earning her heartbreak, her first kill and the promotion to agent. Let's dive in, shall we?
We open on our two girls Nikita (Maggie Q) and Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) storming a castle (Ok, not really, but it looks like one) to retrieve a black box (or as we like to refer to them -- a horcrux). While searching for the black box, Alex randomly goes under the bed and finds a hidden iPod, which she begins to smile at before a dead Thom (Ashton Holmes), complete with pale face and a gunshot wound, »
What is it about Leighton Meester that makes her so incredibly pair-able with others? Whether she’s standing beside Chuck or Dan (or Minka Kelly, for that matter), she simply oozes chemistry. Well, whatever “it” is, it makes for great TV (and perhaps also movies that you really want to see despite a fear of losing self respect). This week, I talked chemistry and more with Blair Waldorf’s amazing puppetmasters, Stephanie Savage and Josh Safran, who dish about what we can expect next from our favorite schemer and the rest of the gang. I also spoke with Matt Czuchry »

It ain't easy being Alex's (Lyndsy Fonseca) love interest on "Nikita." Just ask Ashton Holmes. In the mid-season finale, "All The Way," she ended up killing his character Thom (accidentally) and setting him up to take the fall as Division's mole. Talk about a heartbreaker.
Thad Luckinbill, who plays Alex's new love interest Nathan, tell Zap2it that after her watched the episode he texted Fonseca to say,"'Oh, that's how you treat your love interests? Great!'"
Luckinbill makes his first appearance in tonight's (Jan. 27) episode, "Free," and plays Alex's new neighbor now that she's been activated to a full-blown agent and is living on her own. Luckinbill says Nathan will have questions about Alex from the very start. "He definitely sees there are some serious questions about who is this person?"
One thing Nathan has going for him is that he's not part of Division. (then again, they »
When "Nikita" returns on Thursday, Jan. 27, viewers will be introduced to Alex's (Lyndsy Fonseca) new love interest, Nathan (Thad Luckinbill). They will also see a kiss between Nikita (Maggie Q) and Ryan Fletcher (Noah Bean).
Fans of Michael (Shane West) probably won't be too happy about those developments. "Mikita" shippers (Michael and Nikita fans for all you TV amateurs) weren't pleased when they saw the Nikita/Ryan kiss in the promo and another legion of fans are actually rooting for a Michael/Alex romance. (You can call them "Malex" fans. We think.)
We sat down with Maggie and Lyndsy at the The CW's winter television critics association press tour where we had to ask their thoughts on the show possibly exploring a love triangle between the three characters. Their opinions are pretty much polar opposite. And by pretty much, we mean totally.
Maggie: "It's hard for me to think that because she's so young. »
In the preview for "Nikita's" Jan. 27 episode, "Free," we see a few new things: Alex's (Lyndsy Fonseca) new apartment, Alex's new love interest Nathan (Thad Luckinbill) and Nikita (Maggie Q) kissing Ryan Fletcher (Noah Bean). Yeah, that last one through us for a loop.
Naturally, we had to ask (read: bug) Maggie about The Kiss when we caught up with her at The CW's winter television critics association press tour. Funnily enough, she didn't even know the kiss made it into the episode's preview. "How funny," she says with a laugh.
Maggie knows the kiss probably won't make fans of Michael (Shane West) and Nikita's sort of relationship too happy ("I bet!" was her exact reponse to fans' negative reactions), but attempts to clear the air without giving too much away: "What you'll under stand when you see the episode: The context of the kiss, what she puts him through. »
