Benched: Will You Proceed With USA Network's New Legal Comedy?

28 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Elevators. Relationships. Conversations with other human beings in general. As evidenced by Tuesday’s series premiere of USA Network’s Benched, none of these things are lawyer Nina Whitley’s strengths.

Fortunately — for the viewers, at least — her failures are spectacularly entertaining.

After being passed over for partner at her corporate firm — by a less-qualified, larger-breasted friend, no less — Nina (Happy EndingsEliza Coupe) unleashes the proverbial Kraken, telling off every single one of her co-workers with the kind of speech most hard-working, under-appreciated Americans only dream of. »

Syfy plans to lure you back with these 5 shows

28 October 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Syfy knows they messed up. Now they have a plan to win you back. The cable network’s top executives won’t say this in such blunt language, but they acknowledge that somewhere along the line, the network missed an opportunity to have more great scripted dramas. It happened sometime after the name change from Sci Fi Channel to Syfy and the conclusion of Battlestar Galactica—the acclaimed series that was once mentioned by critics alongside titles like Mad Men and The Sopranos as representing TV's top-tier of storytelling. Once the weary Battlestar crew decided to settle on Earth in the show’s 2009 series finale, »

USA Network's Benched: Ep Previews Eliza Coupe's Unfiltered Legal Comedy

28 October 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Nina Whitley, the main lawyer on USA Network’s new legal sitcom Benched — premiering Tuesday at 10:30/9:30c — isn’t someone you’d necessarily choose to have in your corner. Then again, she probably wouldn’t want to help you, either.

Why TLC quickly ditched 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo'

24 October 2014 7:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Why TLC quickly ditched “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” Quick and decisive action was the only choice TLC had to make, says Josef Adalian, because it’s better to be safe than sorry. Plus, if the facts of the situation change, TLC could easily un-cancel the show. Still, “Honey Boo Boo’s” ratings have declined recently, and its loss won’t really hurt TLC. Mama June’s 20-year-old daughter Chickadee claims she was also victimized by the same child molester TMZ reports that Anna Cardwell, Aka Chickadee, who is married with a child, says she was also molested, at age 8, by the child molester whom Mama June is allegedly dating.

BSG's Tricia Helfer Suits Up as Harvey's Foe (and Lust Interest)

24 October 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Erstwhile Killer Woman Tricia Helfer is trying on Suits for size.

The Battlestar Galactica alum is set to guest-star on USA Network’s legal hit as an adversary to Mike and Harvey (and possibly more for the latter), TVLine has learned exclusively.

Helfer will play Evan Smith, Mike and Harvey’s opposing counsel in a huge class action case. Although the two sides exchange blows, Harvey’s first instinct may be to exchange numbers with her.

The episode will air during the second half of the show’s fourth season, which is slated to kick off in early 2015.

Syfy's "Ascension" Airing Compressed

14 October 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Syfy has announced that it has not only delayed its upcoming space-set mini-series "Ascension," but they have significantly altered their plans for airing it.

The series follows the members of covert 1960s Us space mission in which hundreds of people are sent on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world.

Halfway into their journey, as they approach the point of no return, the murder of a young woman causes the ship's population to question the true nature of their mission.

Originally the six-episode mini-series was to start airing on November 24th with weekly episodes. Instead, the network will now screen the series in three, two-hour installments over three consecutive nights - from December 15th to 17th.

Brian Van Holt and Tricia Helfer star in the series.

New Trailer for Syfy’s Tricia Helfer-Fronted Ascension

1 October 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

It appears things are not what they seem in this quickie trailer for the Syfy channel’s new “limited series” (I guess that’s the new way to call something that used to be a mini-series or backdoor pilot) “Ascension.” No doubt if the show is a hit, it’ll likely launch an ongoing series. The most notable name here is Tricia Helfer. I would call this a “Babylon 5″-ish show, except it doesn’t seem to have any aliens, and it looks kind of dull despite the quick cutting and people wielding guns. But take a look and decide for yourself, take a look and decide for yourselfers. In 1963, the U.S. government launched a covert space mission sending hundreds of men, women and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world. Nearly 50 years into the journey, as they approach the point of no return, »

First Ascension Trailer Reveals the Starship Launched to Save the Human Race

30 September 2014 7:36 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Killer Women came and went pretty fast, but Tricia Helfer’s got another series on the way and it looks far more promising.  Ascension is a six-hour mini-series that goes down on a starship carrying 600 people on a mission to save the human race by populating a new world.  Helfer plays Viondra Denniger, a beautiful but manipulative power broker aboard the starship Ascension. The show’s very first trailer just dropped and even though the piece is only 30 seconds long, it still offers up a fairly comprehensive sense of the Ascension’s mission as well as an effective tease of what sends it into chaos.  Hit the jump to check out the Ascension trailer for yourself.  The mini-series debuts on Syfy on November 24th at 9/8c and also stars Brian Van HoltAndrea RothBrandon P. BellTiffany Lonsdale and Pj Boudousque. Via EW. Here’s the official synopsis for Ascension: In 1963, the U. »

First trailer for Syfy's space thriller 'Ascension' starring Tricia Helfer

30 September 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Syfy is returning to outer space and bringing along Battlestar Galactica's Tricia Helfer in this first trailer for its upcoming miniseries thriller Ascension. The pitch: The U.S. launches a massive space ark containing 600 people to save humanity and populate a new world, but they experience some rather serious complications. The series from writer Philip Levens (Smallville) stars Brian Van Holt as the ship's captain and Helfer as his power broker wife. Ascension debuts Nov. 24 on Syfy, and though it's billed as a limited series, I suspect if the show is successful that it could expand (like Battlestar after »

Reading Rainbow Live Show Recap: LeVar Burton and Battlestar Galactica Cast Read Space Books

9 September 2014 4:54 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The feel-good Internet story of the year, the resurrection of Reading Rainbow finally came to fruition this weekend.  The show ran for twenty-three years on PBS before being unceremoniously cancelled in late 2006.  Since then, host LeVar Burton & co have launched a Reading Rainbow app – an education tool for children, allowing them to read and view a vast number of books and interviews; though it wasn’t until earlier this year, with Burton’s impassioned plea via Kickstarter, that Reading Rainbow truly returned into the national consciousness.  Burton’s Kickstarter campaign sought to raise funds to launch the app on the web, smart-phones and other streaming devices, as well as for free for needy impoverished schools.  Within eleven hours, one million dollars had been raised for Reading Rainbow – and when all was said and done, over five million in sum had been donated. To honor the many people who contributed to the cause, »

15 ways 'Outlander' is secretly 'Battlestar Galactica' all over again

9 August 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The press around Outlander, which premieres on Starz Saturday night but has already released its pilot on Youtube to nearly one million views, has been very positive—and often filled with caveats that it’s “feminist fantasy,” or at least directed at female audiences.

People have made much of the genre shift showrunner Ronald D. Moore made by going from his best-known previous project, the sci-fi epic Battlestar Galactica, to Outlander. The latter, an adaption of Diana Gabaldon’s book series, follows Claire Randall, a World War II nurse sent back in time to 18th-century Scotland. It panders to audiences who like attractive Scottish men, »
