It’s B.A.U. at the Bau — and then it isn’t — when CBS’ Criminal Minds opens Season 11, as seen in this first new promo.

In the season opener (airing Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 9/8c), Hotch & Co, as they do, tackle a “twisted” and “bizarre” case. “This UnSub does some, obviously, weird stuff to his victims, which includes painting their faces,” showrunner Erica Messer told me. “And then we learn why he’s doing it, because he himself has a really hard-to-look-at face.”
The season-opening wrinkle, meanwhile, involves the hiring of a psychologist, »
If you had told us, prior to San Diego Comic-Con 2015, that the cast of Archer would be the toughest group to get spoilers from, we wouldn’t have believed you.
But as you will find in Michael Ausiello’s Q&A with the actors — including Aisha Tyler, Judy Greer, Chris Parnell and Jessica Walter — the voices behind the animated FX-turned-fxx series aren’t willing to spill much about the upcoming seventh season.

That’s not to say a few intriguing hints weren’t dropped. According to Greer, Season 7 will feature two “big, »
Score one for stability. After five seasons of looking up at the show that inspired it, insurgent CBS daytime chatfest “The Talk” is enjoying the view from the top.
Though “The Talk” doesn’t compete head-to-head with ABC’s “The View,” it earned ratings bragging rights by outdrawing its 18-year-old counterpart in total viewers for the first time (2.55 million vs. 2.52 million) in the second quarter, according to Nielsen estimates. As recently as a year ago, the CBS show had trailed by nearly 500,000 viewers.
While “The View” has had more than its share of on-air talent turnover in recent years, Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert and Sharon Osbourne have been seated around “The Talk” coffee table since day one, and the two other current panelists, Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood, came onboard in 2011.

Question: Can you give some Grey’s Anatomy spoilers, specifically Arizona and Callie? —Barbara
Ausiello: Shonda Rhimes gave me some additional intel on the “exciting romances” Callie and Arizona will be embarking on in Season 12. For starters, their new squeezes will not be characters we’ve met before. Additionally, “They’re going to both be dating women,” Rhimes confirms, adding, “I do want to honor the fact that Callie is bisexual, and we’ve established that she’s dated guys. »

CW president Mark Pedowitz announced the pickups Tuesday at the Television Critics’ Assn. press tour at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif.
“Penn & Teller: Fool Us” is a one-hour, live studio audience competition in which each episode features aspiring magicians to perform their best trick to fool the legendary duo.
Airing back-to-back on Mondays, “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” and “Whose Line Is It Anyway” have been CW’s top-rated series of summer. The former, which is averaging a 0.55 rating in 18-49 and about two million viewers overall in same-night Nielsen estimates, last night drew its largest audience ever (2.35 million) — the network’s best performance in the Monday-at-8 hour since “One »

John Oliver and the “Last Week Tonight” staff wrangled together a band of comedians and TV talent for a sexual education explainer that is both much funnier and arguably more informative than the videos teens are currently forced to watch in school for sex ed class.
Complete with wacky graphics and fonts that could have come straight from Microsoft PowerPoint, the PSA makes sex ed seem pretty simple. “If you want to be abstinent, that’s fine,” Tyler offers, to which Schaal adds, “If you don’t want to be abstinent, that’s also fine.”
Other highlights include Mullally explaining ancient Egyptian contraception practices, declaring, “They’re all dead now”; Cox illustrating how to put a condom on a banana; and McBrayer saying, “This is a vagina.”

CBS kicked off its portion of the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Monday on a super-spoilery note, releasing comprehensive fall teasers on 13 of its returning series.

Some of the information below will feel like old news (especially to dedicated TVLine readers). But there’s enough fresh character and plot intel to justify our decision to excerpt the entire release below. Enjoy!
Madam Secretary (Sunday, Oct. 4)
In the season premiere, the President’s plane is declared missing and Elizabeth is thrust into a situation of power she never imagined possible. »
Appearing Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills, where she was promoting the new Fox comedy Grandfathered, Paget Brewster revealed that she was interested in putting in another Criminal Minds encore, but scheduling conflicts proved insurmountable.
TVLine has confirmed that Nichols will guest-star in the second Season 11 episode of the creepy crime drama as Natalie Colfax, a top agent at a Los Angeles outpost of the FBI.
The actress teased her new gig Monday afternoon via Twitter.
After braving the elements, the moment I had been waiting for arrived. For the first time ever I had made it into Hall H. The atmosphere is electric. People dash here and there seeking out the best seat in the hall. In the scramble I lost my group. The fault was mine. I was taking in the sheer size of the hall and completely lost track of everyone. No amount of shouting our distress call “Margot Robbie, Caw, Caw” was going to help me. Worst yet, my cellphone died, cutting me off completely.
I found a decent seat in the middle of the room and then immediately ran to the restroom, which was a complete madhouse. Women were running in and out of stalls trying to make it out before Warner Bros. began their presentation. The lady behind me gave me a shove as soon as a stall opened up for me. »

When Emmy nominations were announced on Thursday, TV stars took to Twitter in force to celebrate, thanking fans and even breaking out the champagne (which is acceptable, given the Emmys’ later announcement time this year).
Schumer congratulated fan favorite Maslany for finally nabbing a nom, showing excitement for the fact that she was “#notsnubbed.”
@amyschumer You!!! You Congratulations! I'm So Happy For You!! You're my favourite one :) #veryfuckable

The dust has finally settled on Comic-Con 2015, and we're left with quite a few awesome souvenirs. One of the best being the brand-new, full-length trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which helped cap off a memorable panel for Warner Bros. that also included The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Pan and a surprise appearance from David Ayer and his Suicide Squad cast. As huge as that collective is, the Batman v Superman trailer brought down the house, giving us Much more than the underwhelming first trailer from April.
The trailer offered our first look at Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) in action, Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) doing his best Kurt Cobain impression and an explanation of exactly why Batman (Ben Affleck) has beef with Superman (Henry Cavill). But the trailer was just the tip of the iceberg, with Zack Snyder and the entire cast shedding some much-needed light on this iconic story. »
The much-anticipated Warner Bros. Panel kicked off Hall H on Saturday and it did not dissappoint. While I wouldn't say it brought down the house completely, it definitely secured a foothold for the studio in terms of presentation and hype. Host Aisha Tyler was on hand to intro the films being pimped. WB brought along two of their upcoming features to start things off; Guy Ritchie's The Man From... Read More »

From the first images and trailer alone, Joe Wright’s Pan seems like a wondrous and highly theatrical take on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale of the flying boy who goes to Neverland. It’s been awhile since a new adaptation of this tale has hit the multiplexes, and director Wright has a knack for taking old stories and giving them a great, visually alluring revival, including his recent Anna Karenina. At the 2015 Comic-Con panel, Wright, along with Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund, and Peter Pan himself Levi Miller, talked with moderator Aisha Tyler about how the director’s vision for the film was totally fresh and revitalizing, the use of practical sets and models, and how the tone of Barrie’s original informed Wright’s approach to the characters of Pan, Blackbeard, Tiger Lilly, and a young Hook.

Taking a break from his Sherlock Holmes franchise, director Guy Ritchie is prepping for the release of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., the much-anticipated adaptation of the television series of the same name, starring Armie Hammer and the Man of Steel himself Henry Cavill. The trailer suggests the same slick, funny, and appealingly lensed spy-craft and detective work that has informed his adaptations of the Holmes legend, but the chemistry between Hammer and Cavill seems totally their own. The two young actors seemed to have a snappy comic repartee both in the trailer and on the panel, which offered some insights into how Ritchie approached the adaptation, the casting and process for the actors, and the enthusiasm for the material on set. Archer staple Aisha Tyler moderated the panel, which included Cavill, Hammer, Alicia Vikander, and Elizabeth Debicki, and the show opened with a message from Ritchie, who hilariously kept messing »
