36 minutes ago

CBS earlier this summer pulled off a similar switcheroo, placing the new Sunday series Reckless after the established drama Unforgettable. That swap stabilized Reckless‘ numbers while also boosting the Poppy Montgomery starrer.

Bates Motel Cast, Ep Talk Norma's 'Innocence' and Romero's Backstory, Defend 'Desperate' Finale Kiss
2 hours ago
Norma and Norman Bates weren’t the only folks whose world views began to diverge during Season 2 of A&E’s Bates Motel.
As executive producer Kerry Ehrin told Michael Ausiello in TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con video suite, series stars Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore found themselves taking very different approaches to their scenes — i.e. their face-off in the parking lot outside the community theater — which wound up adding rich layers to their characters and performances.
Farmiga added that despite Norman »

The Leftovers Recap: Can We Talk?
15 hours ago
Since this week’s episode of The Leftovers was titled “Gladys,” and since nothing even remotely pleasant ever happens on this show (at least not unless Garvey and Nora happen to cross paths), you can probably guess that it doesn’t go well for the title character.
But what you probably can’t guess is that, over the course of the hour, not one but two members of the Guilty Remnant break their vow of silence, and what transpires on screen takes away our ability to utter anything but gasps. (It’s that horrific.) Scared? You should be. But let’s recap this sucker, »

Rising Star Recap: Exception to the Duels

Quick, say something nice about Rising Star! And no, “it’s no longer clogging up my DVR with its tuneless discharge” does not count as “nice.”
Maybe I ought to go first? Ummm…
Ok, ABC’s reality singing competition is putting my math skills to good use. (That hinky “percentage of people who vote yes” + “7% for each judge” metric does occasionally tickle the brain.)
Also, host Josh Groban almost completely faded into the backdrop this week — thereby reducing the chances that this »

True Blood Recap: The Waiting Game
16 hours ago
“Waiting sucks” took on a whole new meaning during Sunday’s True Blood, as Sookie was forced to sweat out the results of her Hep-v blood test. Is she responsible for inadvertently sentencing Bill to death?
Sadly, the answer is yes; after the midnight assault on Fangtasia, when those H-Vamps exploded all over Sookie, she contracted the Hep-v virus and passed it along to Bill during their feedings. Even though it was obvious her test results would come back positive, it was heartbreaking watching Sookie wait for the news, »
