Tim Daly Memorializes the True Casualty of Wings' Big Plane Crash

24 August 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Let us all observe a moment of silence for the Sandpiper Air flight that went down off of Cape Cod nearly 25 years ago… but don’t worry about observing too long, because it was a fictional event on the NBC comedy Wings. And the only real victim, star Tim Daly tells us, was a rather sensitive part of his anatomy.

20 August 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

TNT’s The Last Ship launched Season 4 by revealing a new threat to the globe — and thus to the Nathan James itself. Retired Cno Tom Chandler, meanwhile, did his best maintain a low profile in Greece, but a local crime lord had other plans.

17 August 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

By Spencer Coile 

Historically announced with the Creative Arts Emmy Awards Show, Best Guest Actress in a Drama Series is a category often filled to the brim with brilliant performances -- making it no less memorable than the main stage categories. Won in the past by the likes of Allison Janney, Margo Martindale, Carrie Preston, and other incredible actresses of strage and screen, the soon-to-be winner will be joining prestigious company. 

Fortunately, the nominees for the category this year are (for the most part) equal parts memorable and thoughtful -- leaving a lasting impact on their series. Let's dive into this year's nominees and determine who will and should win »

A Look Back at NBC's Infamous Flop Emeril, From Co-Star Carrie Preston

17 August 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Hey, remember when celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse had his own NBC sitcom that got yanked off the air after a couple months? Well, Carrie Preston does… because she was in it.

A decade before she won an Emmy for The Good Wife, Preston played kooky (and blonde!) food stylist B.D. Benson on Emeril, which lasted just seven episodes in the fall of 2001. Starring Lagasse as (what else?) a TV chef, Emeril was created by Designing Women alum Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, with a supporting cast that included TV veteran Robert Urich and future The View co-host Sherri Shepherd.

Animal Kingdom's Shawn Hatosy Breaks Down Pope's 'Last Stand'

15 August 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Warning: There are so many spoilers from Tuesday’s Animal Kingdom in the following interview, it ought to be illegal.

Tuesday’s Animal Kingdom thrill ride was full of turning points: Baz got Smurf busted, J reunited with Nicky, and Marco made Craig and Deran accomplices to a kidnapping that revealed a heretofore-unseen ruthless side of Lucy. But no twists hit harder than Pope’s discovery that his mother had had him murder Catherine for no reason — she hadn’t been ratting out the Codys to the cops — and his subsequent confession to/rejection by girlfriend Amy.

Claws Recap: Who Didn't Survive the Wild Season Finale? (Grade It!)

13 August 2017 6:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It’s fitting that Claws‘ season finale started out in an amusement park, because hot damn, this thing was a roller coaster. (And not just for Roller.)

Juanda, We Hardly Knew Ya | We pick up with Desna and Roller getting chased through that abandoned theme park by the Russians. Luckily, the nail salon crew (minus Jen) and Dean have tracked Desna down using her phone’s Gps, and Desna hops into their waiting van, just avoiding Roller’s clutches. As they peel away, he yells at Desna that he’ll kill her with his bare hands. A real charmer, that guy. »

11 August 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Claws is ending its first season with a bang.

On Sunday's finale of the addictive TNT drama, nail salon owner Desna (Niecy Nash) is on the run from Roller (Jack Kesy), the once-presumed dead drug dealer, and her Nail Artisans gang is fearing for the worst. In Et's exclusive sneak peek of the action-packed finale, Desna's motley crew -- Polly (Carrie Preston), Virginia (Karrueche Tran), Ann (Judy Reyes) and Dean (Harold Perrineau) -- race around town to find and rescue Desna.

"There's such a fierce loyalty between all of Desna's divas and the crew will go to the mat for her and for each other, and the thought that she's in peril kicks them all into high gear. Each of them drops everything they're doing and throws all their muscle behind trying to find her and rescue her," Preston tells Et of the finale sneak peek.

Claws Star Carrie Preston Talks Polly's Shady Past, the Nail Crew's 'Magical' Chemistry and Previews the Finale

11 August 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We’re almost at the end of Claws‘ first season… and we still don’t exactly know who Polly is, do we?

With that sweet smile and preppy sweater tied around her neck, Polly — as played by Emmy winner Carrie Preston (The Good Wife, True Blood) — seems like a picture-perfect Southern belle. But appearances can be deceiving: She’s also a liar and an ex-con who’s stuck wearing an ankle monitor after serving time for identity theft. (And as Virginia learned this season, if you cross one of Polly’s friends, she will not hesitate to cut a bitch. »
