To mark the late Frank Sinatra’s centennial birthday this year, HBO presents a detailed look at the music legend’s prolific life in “Sinatra: All or Nothing at All,” a two-part, four-hour documentary featuring never-before-seen footage, home movies and candid details of Sinatra’s private life provided by the man himself. Friends, family and admirers of Ol’ Blue Eyes stepped out Tuesday night at the Time Warner Center in New York for the buzzy film’s premiere.
“My dad would have been very proud of this film,” Tina Sinatra, Sinatra’s 66-year-old youngest child, told Variety prior to the screening. “It’s the real and honest look at his life. It shows him as a real person. He never made excuses. He didn’t do things perfectly well every time. He was his own man, and he was, most of the time, always generous. He did things his way. »

Is The Good Wife's new love triangle over before it even started? Yep! No? Maybe! Let's be frank: The Good Wife's original love triangle between Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies), Will Gardner (Josh Charles) and Peter Florrick (Chris Noth) got a little…cumbersome. Robert and Michelle King, The Good Wife's co-creators and executive producers, have been vocal about being relieved it's no longer a factor on the show. But now Alicia finds herself attracted to both Finn Polmar (Matthew Goode) and Johnny Elfman (Steven Pasquale). "We wanted to do something this year that avoided the love triangle aspect that are fun, but also become a trap for the series," Robert King told »
Happy Birthday, Sarah Jessica Parker! Can you believe the Sex and the City star is ringing in the big 5-0 today? It seems as if no time has passed since the actress stole our hearts on the hit HBO series, which aired from 1998 to 2004 and is currently in syndication on E!. From Carrie Bradshaw's (Parker) rollercoaster relationship with Mr. Big (Chris Noth) to her unbreakable friendships with Charlotte (Kristin Davis), Samantha (Kim Cattrall) and Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), Sex and the City taught us many life lessons (how else would we know to drink cosmos and wear Manolos?) and will always have a special place in our hearts. Photos: Sex and the City: Then & »
It is a momentous day for Sex and the City fans around the world as Sarah Jessica Parker celebrates her 50th birthday. While the role of Carrie Bradshaw made Sarah a fashion icon and a superstar, she has starred in a wide variety of films and television shows over four decades. Parker began her career as a child star on the stage in Annie, and has gone on to become an enduring fixture in pop culture.
Her movie career was launched with supporting roles in '80s teen comedies Footloose and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, but soon she grew into a leading lady with memorable roles in a string of early 1990s comedies. Parker might be best known for romantic comedies these days, but over the last 30 years she's impressed critics in roles as diverse a mystical witch, an egotistical talkshow host and the embodiment of a single woman of the 2000s. »
A review of last night's "Girls" season finale coming up just as soon as it's pretty legal to self-doula... Late in "Home Birth," Hannah stands in the Nicu peering down at her partial namesake, Jessa-Hannah Bluebell Poem Schlesinger Sackler, and tries to impart some wisdom about being alive. "Life, man," she says, "I can't guarantee perfection, but I can guarantee intrigue." That's not only an accurate description of our time on this earth, but of this season of "Girls," which offered plenty of intrigue — along with strong comedy and poignant character moments — while feeling decidedly imperfect for various pacing issues I wrote about last week. Servicing the whole ensemble and making sure character arcs play out properly over the course of a season have never been strengths of this series, but the issues felt more acute throughout this year, and throughout this finale. I liked an awful lot of both, »

Alicia Florrick: Halo player, awkward car ride expert and…new State's Attorney. That's right. Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) was victorious. Is The Good Wife ready for another seismic shift? "Red Meat" was a delightful episode for several reasons, a primary one was Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski). Yes, Queen Diane actually got a solid storyline all for herself and it was just wonderful. Plus headway with Kalinda's (Archie Panjabi) swan song. "She's finally getting to vote for her favorite Florrick." Everything started with Alicia and Johnny (Steven Pasquale) in a car. Did they get it on? The tension was there and it was awkward. He popped out and Peter (Chris Noth) »

Bad news ladies, Mr. Big from "Sex and the City" is now walking with a big cane. Chris Noth's been pulling off the sexy distinguished gentleman thing for years -- but Wednesday he was spotted in NYC's East Village with a new prop. We're guessing the 60-year-old 'Good Wife' star's limp is just a temporary thing ... at least for the sake of lady boners, everywhere. Read more »

Lauren Holly pulls off wicked stepmother with a delightful iciness in After the Ball, a Cinderella-inspired fairy tale set in a modern fashion world. Even over the phone, Lauren can hardly contain her excitement. “This was such a special movie for me. It makes me feel proud.”
Lauren’s character, Elise, is stepmother to Kate (Portia Doubleday), the young and talented fashion designer and estranged daughter of retail tycoon, Lee (Chris Noth). When Elise sabotages Kate’s career at her father’s company, Kate must transform into designer “Nate” in order to claw her way back into the company and her father’s heart.
When asked if it was difficult to play an “evil” character, Lauren laughs. “It’s always fun to do a role like this because you can go bigger with it and be more exaggerated.” In fact, the hardest part for Lauren was her fingernails in the movie. »

On the eve of the Oscars, the Emmys are the winner for “best rules changes by an industry award voting body.”
A series of new provisions announced Friday have brought long overdue common sense to the Emmy Awards, imposing some hard-and-fast guidelines (subject to petition, naturally) that will prevent some of the category shopping that has produced strange bedfellows in recent ceremonies.
Foremost among the revisions, the Television Academy will now define “comedy” as half-hour programs and dramas as hours, keeping series like “Glee” and “Orange Is the New Black” in the latter race. The number of nominees in each marquee bracket will also be expanded to seven, which is not only good news for all the media outlets who sell “For Your Consideration” ads (yay, team) but recognition of the volume of quality work that’s being done.
Other key moves include trying to draw clearer lines between “series” and “limited series, »

One of the most popular television series of all time may be poised to return to airwaves, with news that NBC is looking at possibly bringing Dick Wolf’s original Law & Order back to the land of the living.
Reboots are all the rage these days; Fox resuscitated Jack Bauer for 24: Live Another Day, and NBC is already wheeling out Heroes for 13-episode miniseries Heroes Reborn, so the idea of making more Law & Order isn’t completely out of left field.
In fact, network brass note that this isn’t the first time they’ve discussed a reboot of its longest-running drama series. However, Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva thinks that movement is happening on that front, with NBC potentially looking at assembling an all-star lineup of heavy hitters from Law & Order‘s past, including stalwarts Chris Noth and Sam Waterston, for a 10-episode limited series.

A&E is expected to revive the canceled CBS drama "Unforgettable" for a fourth season of thirteen episodes.
CBS axed the series after its first year before deciding to pick it up for an additional two seasons to air during Summer. They then cancelled it again in October last year, but now A&E has stepped in to revive the Poppy Montgomery-led series.
It's an interesting bit of irony considering A&E recently cancelled its own popular procedural "Longmire" after three seasons, only for Netflix to pick it up for a fourth.
Meanwhile, NBC is aiming to revive its longest-running drama series, the original "Law & Order" which was cancelled after twenty seasons in 2010. Ten new episodes are said to be under consideration.
Though the project is not in active development at the moment, the network has reportedly been exploring the possibility of re-assembling the cast from the early years »

Extortion centres on a doctor and his family who fall foul of local fishermen in the Bahamas after a joyride leaves them stranded on an island.

Deadline reports that NBC is considering reviving the original Law & Order series for a limited run, as they're doing with the Heroes 13 episode mini-series.
Network sources note that the idea has been floated in the past and the idea is not currently in active development. Several past castmembers have been approached about potentially taking part -- including Sam Watterson and Chris Noth. Word is that there would likely be 10 episodes.
Doink doink. Fans of Law and Order, are you sitting down? (Why wouldn't you be, unless you're at a standing desk or walking while reading this on your phone, in that case, look up you're about to walk into a pole). According to reports, NBC is looking at bringing back the mothership, Law and Order original flavor. Everything old is new again! Deadline reports talks about bringing Law and Order back for a limited series are starting, but nothing is in development just yet. It could be 10 episodes with members of the original cast, including Chris Noth and Sam Waterston, returning to the fold. NBC did not immediately respond to request for comment. Revivals of popular brands are all the rage these »
NBC may be considering reviving the original Law & Order for a ten-episode limited series. According to Deadline, there's no official plan in place or active development, but there is "movement" on the idea, and both Chris Noth and Sam Waterston have reportedly been approached to reprise their roles. It's not a half-bad idea, really: L&O creator Dick Wolf has three dramas currently on NBC and another in the works, limited rerurns of canceled series are very trendy right now, and America's appetite for crime procedurals remains high. If only there were a way to bring Claire Kincaid back from the dead »
