Project Runway Recap: No Wrinkles, No Time

10 August 2012 10:15 AM, PDT

This week’s installment of Project Runway began with a trip to Michael Kors’ “flagship lifestyle store” — where black blazers (paired with black t-shirts) are always in fashion, and insane crotches are strictly verboten.

I’m not exactly sure what this bit of product placement had to do with the challenge — creating a day-to-night look for an on-the-go woman on a budget of $150 (with no wrinkles, please) — but I was happy that it wasn’t a team effort, and delighted that Tim Gunn stressed the finished product needed to reflect each designer’s point of view.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention, »

Exclusive First Look: Is True Blood Ready to Reveal Bill’s Master Plan?

10 August 2012 9:54 AM, PDT

For weeks, we — not to mention True Blood’s Eric — have wondered Wth is up with Bill. Suddenly, the good guy’s been siding with the Sanguinistas and even helping them scheme to serve up humanity as an all-you-can eat buffet. But, as is suggested by the following exclusive sneak peek at this week’s episode (Sunday at 9/8c on HBO), all may not be as it seems.

Ratings: Rookie Blue Ties Season High, the Olympics Cool and Dallas Ends With a Bang

10 August 2012 9:44 AM, PDT

The Olympic torch was tempered some this Thursday night, as the London Games averaged “just” 22.4 million total viewers while scoring a 6.8 demo rating, per fast nationals. Week-to-week, that marks a drop of some 40 percent, and a low for 2012′s summer spectacle.

That said, London through its first 14 nights is up 12 percent in total audience and 5 percent in the demo versus Beijing 2008.

Major Crimes Vs. The Closer: What's the Same? What's Different? And Is There Still Candy?

10 August 2012 8:35 AM, PDT

What’s old is (somewhat) new again as the series finale of TNT’s The Closer on Monday night feeds right into the 10 o’clock premiere of the acclaimed procedural’s spin-off, Major Crimes.

Kyra Sedgwick, of course, turned in her metaphorical badge, dictating The Closer‘s end and paving the way for Mary McDonnell (Battlestar Galactica) to step up and front the offshoot. But how else does Major Crimes compare to its predecessor? Let’s take a look at the evidence presented by the new drama’s first two episodes. (Major Crimes settles into its regular Mondays-at-9 time slot on Aug. »

First Look: Revenge Season 2 Key Art Will Have You Seeing Red

10 August 2012 5:59 AM, PDT

What message are we to glean from the Season 2 promo poster for RevengeThere will be blood, perhaps? So much blood that it produces a red sky at morning?

The image itself is very much like the one used to pimp the show’s freshman year: Emily/Amanda (Emily VanCamp) modeling a gown of thorns on a Hamptons beach. She’s even pointed in more or less the same direction as last time (so presumably “Her Next Move” will not be a U-turn that involves forgiving and/or forgetting).

Olympics Watch: What Was Your Favorite Moment From London 2012, Day 13?

10 August 2012 5:35 AM, PDT

Did you know that on Facebook, the U.S. women’s soccer team has almost 200 times more “likes” than its Japanese counterpart? That historically significant tidbit came straight from Ryan Seacrest’s mouth during his social-media report during Day 13 of the 2012 Olympics in London. [Insert eye-roll here.]

Seacrest’s pink-slime filler wouldn’t be so grody if there weren’t so many meaty athletic competitions that never see the light of NBC’s primetime telecast.

Which isn’t to suggest by any means that Day 13 coverage was a bust. There was Usain Bolt’s facile win in the men’s 200 meter finals (followed by celebratory push-ups! »

Grey's Anatomy Exclusive: Ominous Season 9 Premiere Title Revealed!

9 August 2012 4:44 PM, PDT

Is Seattle Grace about to make another painful cut?

TVLine has exclusively obtained the title of Grey’s Anatomy‘s Sept. 27 premiere and the feeling of loss it conjures up is palpable.

Without further adieu, the Season 9 opener is called, “Going Going Gone.”

Given the news that Eric Dane will only be returning for two episodes this fall, conventional wisdom suggests the title points to the imminent departure of McSteamy.

However, it could also be a nod to the tragic death of Lexie and/or the departure of Teddy »

9 August 2012 4:01 PM, PDT

Simon Cowell’s wardrobe may be 50 shades of gray, black, and white (v-necks), but the new key art for Season 2 of The X Factor is positively bursting with color — namely, hot pink and turquoise.

The stateside incarnation of Cowell’s reality singing competition underwent a massive makeover following its Season 1 finale — with Britney Spears and Demi Lovato taking over spots at the judges’ table from Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, plus Steve Jones stepping down in favor of two as-yet-to-be-named co-hosts.

Not surprisingly, the new promo image (embedded below) puts Spears and Lovato front and center, flanked by Cowell to »

Exclusive: Charisma Carpenter Opens Up About How She Survived Evil, Plan to Tell Others' Tales

9 August 2012 10:12 AM, PDT

I Survived Evil is not just the title of the new Investigation Discovery series that Charisma Carpenter will be hosting — it’s also a declaration the actress herself can make.

Back in 1991, years before she traded barbs with Buffy, Carpenter and two friends were swimming at Torrey Pines State Beach in San Diego when they were violently attacked by Henry Hubbard Jr., then a 29-year-old police officer.

During the encounter, Hubbard, brandishing a gun, ordered Carpenter to tie up her male friends. But Carpenter refused, affording her companions opportunity to jump and overpower Hubbard, ultimately leading to his capture and »

FX Picks Up Keri Russell Drama The Americans

9 August 2012 9:59 AM, PDT

The TV Gods have answered our my prayers: Keri Russell is headed back to the small screen.

FX has placed a 13-episode order for The Americans, a Washington DC-based period drama starring the Felicity actress and Brothers & Sisters‘ Matthew Rhys.

The ambitious project, from Joe Weisberg (Falling Skies) and Graham Yost (Justified), is set in the early ’80s and centers on two Kgb spies, Phillip (Rhys) and Elizabeth (Russell), posing as married Americans in suburban DC. Despite their arranged union, the couple’s bond grows more passionate and genuine by the day, but is constantly tested by the escalation of the Cold War. »

After teasing us with bits and pieces of Dexter‘s Season 7 key art, Showtime on Thursday unveiled the complete blood-tinged poster.

The tagline — “He Saw. She Saw… It’s all on the table” — is, of course, a not-so-subtle nod to Deb catching Dex in the act in the Season 6 finale’s climactic scene.

Also, should we interpret the gash across Dex’s cheek as meaning the perpetrator is about to become the victim?

Emmys 2012: Who Should Win Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series? Take Our Poll!

9 August 2012 8:00 AM, PDT

There hasn’t been a back-to-back winner of the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series since Blythe Danner took home the statuette for Huff in 2005 and 2006, and that streak won’t be broken this year.

Indeed, 2011 winner Margo Martindale of Justified only appeared on one season of FX’s acclaimed drama, making consecutive wins an impossibility. Nevertheless, there are several women in the Supporting Actress race who aren’t exactly new kids on the Emmy block.

The Good Wife‘s 
Archie Panjabi, for instance, took home the prize for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series two years ago, »
