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. »

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.

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.

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.

The Mentalist: To Be Cancelled or Renewed for Season Seven?

25 April 2014 11:31 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last month, CBS renewed most of TV shows from the 2013-14 season. One series that was conspicuously missing from the list was The Mentalist. Does this mean that the show has been cancelled or, could it still return for a seventh season?

Starring Simon Baker, Robin Tunney, Tim Kang, Owain Yeoman, and Amanda Righetti, The Mentalist debuted in 2008 and was an immediate hit for the network, drawing an average of a 3.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 16.94 million viewers. The second season dropped to a still healthy 3.4 in the demo and 15.35 million. Unfortunately, The Mentalist has continued to lose viewers each subsequent year.

In 2012, the network opted to do what they've done in the past with other declining established shows -- they sent The Mentalist to the Sundays at 10pm timeslot. Because of frequent sports-related overruns, numerous episodes of »

The Mentalist: Amanda Righetti and Owain Yeoman Exit the CBS Drama—Did Van Pelt and Rigsby Make it Out Alive?

23 March 2014 9:32 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Mentalist family is down two members. While their impending departures from the CBS series was first reported in August, before the sixth season even premiered, Amanda Righetti and Owain Yeoman's final episode as series regulars didn't air until Sunday, March 23. Righetti and Yeoman, who have been with the show since it began in 2008, play special agents Grace Van Pelt and Wayne Rigsby, the show's fan favorite couple who wed in the season five finale, so viewers have been anxious to see how their story ends. So did both Rigsby and Van Pelt make it out of "White as the Driven Snow," which began with Van Pelt kidnapped and in some serious danger, alive? Warning, spoilers »

'The Mentalist' says goodbye to Amanda Righetti and Owain Yeoman

22 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Fans of "The Mentalist" have known since last summer that two of the show's regulars, Owain Yeoman and Amanda Righetti, would be leaving the series. Now their farewell episode is upon us.

Sunday's (March 23) episode, "White as the Driven Snow," will be the last episode for their characters, and they're not going out quietly. Van Pelt (Righetti) was kidnapped at the end of last week's show, and Sunday's episode centers on Rigsby's (Yeoman) and Jane's (Simon Baker) frantic search for her.

"It's a very dynamic episode," Yeoman tells TV Guide. "I think our show pushed the envelope. ... It felt very different than what we've done."

Rigsby and Van Pelt's exits were set up earlier in the season: In the two-year time jump that followed the conclusion of the Red John story and the dismantling of the Cbi, the couple moved into the private sector and had a baby. They've been »

The Mentalist's Amanda Righetti Headed to Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D.

19 March 2014 2:17 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Mentalist star Amanda Righetti is taking a trip to Chicago. I can exclusively reveal that the actress will be guest starring as a pediatrician on upcoming crossover episodes of Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. A source tells me there's even been some chatter about a Righetti heading up an ensemble cast for another series, Chicago M.D., about a Windy City hospital. While another source says there are no plans for a doctors-based show, we can't help but think it's a great idea. Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. have been mega-successes for NBC and series creator Dick Wolf, so why not expand the franchise? Chicago Fire is currently in its second season. The all-hottie cast includes Lady Gaga's »
