1 hour ago
Renee Zellweger isn’t the only one looking refreshed these days.
No, as this fall TV season has rolled out, a flurry of updated looks have been on display, from NCIS‘ dashing Dinozzo (thanks to Michael Weatherly’s 35-lb. triathlon-related slim-down) to Arrow‘s edgy Thea/”Mia.” From Once Upon a Time‘s contemporized pirate captain to The Blacklist‘s less-wiggy Elizabeth and Reign‘s shorn seer.
We’ve rounded up some of the most noteworthy makeovers undergone by your favorite TV characters. Take a look at their “before” and “after” shots, then weigh in on who you think indeed changed for the better. »
Pilot Scoop: ABC Eyes Marc Cherry's Modern Phantom of the Opera Drama
2 hours ago
ABC alone can make his song take flight, and help Marc Cherry make the music of the night…
Now that we have your attention, Broadway fans, this just in: ABC has ordered a pilot script for the Desperate Housewives mastermind’s modern reimagining of Gaston Leroux’s gothic novel The Phantom of the Opera, one that will be set “in the sexy and cutthroat world of the modern-day music business.”
The potential series will not — we repeat not — be a musical, but the one-hour scripted drama will contain musical elements (a la the network’s country-music sudser Nashville), according to ABC reps. »

Sons of Anarchy: Gemma Teller Is a Mass Murderer — and We Have Proof
3 hours ago
Sons of Anarchy‘s Gemma Teller has made a career out of spinning tall tales, but the Queen of Charming really topped herself when she fibbed to Jax that the Chinese were behind Tara’s murder.
That little white lie in last month’s premiere set off a horrific chain of events that, seven episodes into the final season, continues to claim lives. Last week, leading lady Katey Sagal guesstimated to TVLine that at least 10 of this season’s deaths can be traced back to Gemma’s heinous bit of misdirection — which got us thinking: How much blood is on the murderous matriarch’s hands? »

Once Upon a Time fans have a little something extra to look forward to this November sweeps.

Ratings: 100 Ties Low; Arrow, Nashville, World Series Tick Up; NBC Dramas Dip
5 hours ago
The CW’s The 100 returned on Wednesday to 1.6 million total viewers, a 0.5 demo rating and chocolate cake, down sharply from its debut (2.7 mil/0.9) and tying its series-low demo, but on par with its last time leading out of a fresh Arrow (1.7 mil/0.6).
Arrow itself did 2.5 mil and a 0.9, ticking up 9 percent and a tenth from last week.
Elsewhere, opposite professional baseball’s World Series Game 2….
NBC | Mysteries of Laura (8.1 mil/1.3), Svu (7.2 mil/1.6) and Chicago P.D. (6.8 mil/1.5) each dipped a tenth in the demo.

This Friday on Hawaii Five-0 (CBS, 9/8c), McGarrett uncovers a most unexpected mystery while visiting his father’s grave — and we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at his (pretty) discovery.
In the episode “Ho’oilina (Legacy),” it’s the fourth anniversary of John McGarrett’s death when Steve bumps into Ellie Clayton (All Saints’ Mirrah Foulkes), a woman who helps him reopen the last unsolved case his father worked on. But what is her deeper connection to the elder McGarrett? And could this happenstance meeting bloom into something more?
As showrunner Peter M. Lenkov previously told us of Ellie’s arc, »
Reign Sneak Peek: Mary Finally Loses It, Lashes Out at Lola Over Francis
7 hours ago
I guess the old saying still rings true: You can only spend so much time in the same castle as the woman who mothered your husband’s child before something has to give.
Ok, that might not be a time-honored pearl of wisdom — yet — but it certainly applies to this exclusive clip from Thursday’s Reign (The CW, 9/8c) in which Mary and Lola finally address the baby elephant in the room.
“Has it ever occurred to you that your cage is of your own making? »

Nashville Recap: Two Dads, No Waiting
16 hours ago
The best moments in Nashville always happen when Juliette lets her inner trailer park out to play. And this week, when she drops a huge reveal on Avery, it’s double-wide city, all the way.
I’m not saying that texting your ex, “I’m pregnant. It’s yours” isn’t the classiest way to drop some life-changing news… no, actually, I am saying that. Only Juliette “pink macaroni” Barnes would dither for weeks about whether or not to tell her baby daddy about their forthcoming spawn, then do it out of spite in that manner. I’m shocked she didn’t use emoji. »
American Horror Story: Freak Show Recap: Truth or Scare
17 hours ago
In this week’s kickoff of American Horror Story: Freak Show’s Halloween two-parter, most of the superstitious carnies refused to perform on October 31, for fear that doing so would conjure up Edward Mordrake (Wes Bentley), a two-faced bogeyman who, based on his description, you’d think would fit right in.
At the same time, a potentially even more terrifying situation was developing: With the arrival of faux fortuneteller Maggie Esmeralda (Emma Roberts), Dot suddenly had competition for Jimmy’s attention.
Here’s your rundown of all the treats (and tricks) that the episode held in store…

CBS Trims CSI's Season 15 Order
19 hours ago
CSI‘s current season will fall a tad short.
TVLine has learned exclusively that CBS has trimmed the venerable procedural’s Season 15 episode order from 22 to 18.
I’m told the decision was more about inventory than ratings. In addition to spin-off CSI: Cyber, which is slated to assume CSI‘s Sunday-at-10 perch later this season, CBS also has Vince Gilligan’s Battle Creek and a seventh season of The Mentalist waiting in the wings.
CSI’s move to Sundays at 10/9c has produced decent results: Although the show is down double-digits from its Season 14 average (when it aired Wednesdays at »

Arrow Recap: Tea and Zero Sympathy
19 hours ago
The women of Arrow were in a punchy mood this Wednesday, as we saw the lengths to which Malcolm went “temper” his daughter and Laurel got a bit overzealous in doing right by dead Sara’s leather jacket.
As Oliver and Roy (and Diggle, there on A.R.G.U.S.-related business) ventured to the South American island of Corto Maltese to track down Thea aka “Mia,” in flashback we witnessed how that season-ending father/daughter limo conversation went down, with Thea anxious to never “feel this pain again… to hurt or be hurt ever again.”

Frankenstein has come alive at Fox.
The network has ordered a pilot for a modern-day sci-fi drama inspired by the Mary Shelley classic, Deadline reports.

Grimm's David Giuntoli on Whether a Normal Nick Can Leave the Fractured Fairy Tales Behind
22 hours ago
Grimm‘s Nick begins Season 4 much the way he ended Season 3: powerless, clueless and with a seriously cheesed-off girlfriend.
Oh, and did we mention the dead body ruining the hardwood floor in his foyer?
“The ground has been pulled out from underneath his feet,” star David Giuntoli says, referring to the way Adalind stripped his character of his evil-fighting abilities in the previous season’s finale. “It’s all about identity. Who am I now? What am I? How has this changed my life?”
The ripped-from-the-fairytales drama begins to answer those questions in its premiere (NBC, Friday at 9/8c »
