“Lizzie Borden took an ax and gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one…” because they were zombies?! That’s author C.A. Verstraete’s proposition in the horror novel Lizzie Borden, Zombie Hunter. Also in today’s Highlights: new promos for American Horror Story Season 6, Satanic Panic release details, and info on the world debut of Diani & Devine Meet the Apocalypse.
“Every family has its secrets…
One hot August morning in 1892, Lizzie Borden picked up an ax and murdered her father and stepmother. Newspapers claim she did it for the oldest of reasons: family conflicts, jealousy, and greed. But what if her parents were already dead? What if Lizzie slaughtered them because they’d become zombies? »

“Criminal Minds” may live to regret firing Thomas Gibson. Or perhaps it won’t live at all beyond its upcoming 12th season. The CBS procedural returns Sept. 28 at 9/8c. And when it does, it’ll be without Special Agent Aaron Hotchner (Gibson) or Shemar Moore‘s Derek Morgan. Not a good start for a network defending its fall TV ratings championship belt. That’s because, speaking of belts, Gibson had all of the series’ 255 episodes under his, while Moore acted in 250 of those. Only Matthew Gray Gubler (254) and Kirsten Vangsness (252) made more appearances than Moore did — and only Gibson appeared in every single episode. »

A trailer has arrived online for the upcoming comedy Diani & Devine Meet the Apocalypse which is set to make its world premiere at the Austin Film Festival this October; take a look below after the official synopsis…
Two comedians. One apocalypse. When all power and communication systems mysteriously shut off, down on their luck comedians Gabriel Diani and Etta Devine pack up their things and hit the road in search of a safe haven to wait out the possible extinction event. Accompanied by their trusty dog Watson and their miserable cat Mrs. Peel, the duo must struggle against the mundane realities of the collapse of civilization while retaining their decency and rationality as the rest of humanity starts getting really, really weird.

CBS president Glenn Geller made the announcement Wednesday morning at the Television Critics Association press tour at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Tyler plays Dr. Tara Lewis, a forensic psychologist whose expertise is studying and interviewing serial killers after they’re captured to determine if they’re able to stand trial. She made her first appearance on “Criminal Minds” in the Season 11 premiere in 2015, and recurred in 19 episodes through the season.
Tyler’s permanent gig on “Criminal Minds” will not impact her role on CBS’s daytime talker “The Talk.” Geller confirmed at TCA that Tyler will juggle both roles, like Julie Chen does with “The Talk” and “Big Brother.”

Criminal Minds is going into its 12th season, with a group of serial killers on the loose, and why not have them go international to set up a crossover with the spinoff, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, entering its second season? Stars Kirsten Vangsness and Tyler James Williams talked about that and more at San Diego Comic-Con when BuddyTV got the scoop on what's coming up on both shows.
Emily Prentiss is coming home again!
If we learned anything from the Criminal Minds Season 11 finale, it's that the team needs all the help it can get.
If you recall, things went all kinds of crazy after Bau raided a prison which resulted in the escape of 13 highly volatile fugitives at the end of it all.
He'll be a series regular, and that proves just how much airtime tracking these fugitives with have in the upcoming season.
It's likely there will be other cases to solve in the meantime, but it's always exciting »

“We’re excited to have Paget Brewster back for multiple episodes in our 12th season,” said showrunner Erica Messer. “The Bau can use more help this year since they’ve got a lot of known and unknown subjects to catch.” At the end of the last season, a series of prison breaks resulted in the release of 13 serial killers.
Brewster first appeared on the series in the second season of the CBS crime drama, when the character joined the Bau to help the team catch two serial killers in St. Louis, and stayed on as a regular for six seasons. Prentiss has returned twice in the intervening years, including toward the end of last season.
Brewster was freed up to head back to “Criminal Minds” after the cancellation of Fox’s »

Neil Gaiman fans are committed to supporting his work, but even they may have trouble with “Neil Gaiman: Dream Dangerously,” the limp new documentary by Patrick Meaney currently available on Vimeo on Demand. How a feature on one of our greatest living fantasy authors could be so mundane is a mystery. Whether it’s because Meaney lacks his subject’s sweeping imagination, or Gaiman’s introverted nature was simply too difficult to surmount, “Dream Dangerously” comes up short.
You couldn’t find a more fascinating pop culture figure to receive this treatment: Gaiman is a British novelist best known for the comic book series “The Sandman,” a groundbreaking fantasy comic about the world of dreams, which is generally believed to have ushered in the genre of contemporary dark fantasy. After his breakout years in the eighties, Gaiman successfully transitioned from comics to novels with hits like “Stardust,” “American Gods,” “Coraline, »

CBS has renewed Joe Mantegna drama “Criminal Minds” for Season 12. Currently in its 11th season, the procedural still draws just over 12 million total viewers per episode — good enough to be a Top 10 drama. “Criminal Minds” averages a 2.8 rating/9 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic — that’s second-best for CBS. Those numbers are per Nielsen’s “most current” ratings metric, which counts seven-day delayed viewing where available.

“Criminal Minds” has finally been renewed for the 2016-2017 season, Variety has learned.
The long-running police procedural sat on the bubble, while CBS had given early renewals to many other staples on the schedule, but the Season 12 pickup was just a matter of time. Sources tell Variety that “Criminal Minds,” which is co-produced by ABC Studios, was was renewed at a lower license fee. Heading into its twelfth season, the procedural is expensive and financial discusses were reason for the holdup, as the show is a steady ratings performer.
The procedural had a strong finish to its eleventh season this Wednesday, as its 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 and nine million total viewers in same-day viewing matched its year-ago scores, even though it faced Fox’s megahit “Empire” this time around. The show is a top ten drama, averaging over 12 million viewers for Season 11, and ranks as CBS’s second highest-rated »
