Fox is giving up on its Saturday night animated line-up, Broadcasting & Cable reported. While the younger viewers the animated block aimed for never showed, an additional issue was that Fox affiliates were frustrated by the number of complaint calls the crude humor inspired. The studio behind the Animation Domination High Def block will continue to create programming but will focus on the web.
Bret Harrison has joined the cast of the ABC drama series Astronaut Wives Club, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He’ll play the “hotshot young gun” husband of a character played by Odette Annable, who previously starred in Breaking In with Harrison.

Banshee, Season 2: Episode 10 – “Bullets and Tears”
Written by Jonathan Tropper
Directed by Greg Yaitanes
Renewed for a third season to premiere in 2015
In last week’s review, I talked a little bit about how the decision to keep Rabbit around for another season might have been an understandable misstep for the freshman series, Banshee. “Bullets and Tears” makes the best case possible for why Rabbit’s presence this season has at least been important in helping develop the relationship between the man known as Lucas Hood (or Tom Palmer, as he would have been known in another life) and Anastasia. And even though I would have liked to have seen more Proctor or Chayton in the main antagonist roles this season (more on that below), “Bullets and Tears” is about as perfect of an ending to the Rabbit years of Banshee as you could get.

D'Agosto will play Frank, the "Robin" of the group, though Frank's relationship to Sally (the "Ted") is quite different than the Ted-Robin relationship that kicked off "Himym." Santino has been cast as Danny, Sally's older brother. His "Himyd" role is secondary to his "Mixology" role. They join the already-cast Greta Gerwig as Sally. [THR]

The Cinemax drama series Banshee is wrapping up its second season (and thankfully has already been picked up for a third), as Lucas Hood (Antony Starr), an ex-con and master thief who has assumed the identity of the town sheriff, continues to attempt to find a balance between his own criminal activities and solving crimes in a town with more bad elements than any one person can keep track of. It’s intense, violent and bad-ass, but it’s also one of the most fun roller-coaster rides on television. The show also stars Ivana Milicevic, Ulrich Thomsen, Frankie Faison, Hoon Lee, Rus Blackwell, Matt Servitto, Demetrius Grosse, Trieste Kelly Dunn, Lili Simmons, Antony Ruivivar and Odette Annable. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actress Ivana Milicevic talked about how tough this show was to shoot, how she feels Season 2 compared to Season 1, what it’s been like to hear feedback from fans, »

It’s not even February and, already, 2014 is shaping up to be a massive year for television. True Detective announced itself as the year’s first new stand-out series. Against all odds, Dan Harmon and Community returned and are putting together a respectable comeback season. FX’s fantastic and hard-working Justified continues to solidify its place among the greats of the past decade. And Girls‘ unique blend of comedy and drama is once again pushing the narrative boundaries of the half-hour series in its third season.
One series, though, is leading the charge at the beginning of the year. The most unlikely of heroes, Cinemax’s Banshee, in just a matter of three weeks, has matured into something truly special – something a lot of TV writers refer to as “appointment viewing” when describing other series. With limited experience dabbling in co-produced original programming, Cinemax released Banshee – its first »
