Performer of the Week: Jennifer Carpenter

24 November 2012 6:44 AM, PST

A new feature in which we spotlight the past week’s shining star

The Performer | Jennifer Carpenter

The Show | Dexter (Showtime)

The Episode | “Argentina”

The Airdate | November 18, 2012

The Performance | The dicey Deb-Dex (kinda-but-not-really) incest arc resurfaced last Sunday in a major way when Deb learned that her brother refused to kill hit-woman Hannah because he was sleeping with her. That brought out the green-eyed monster in Deb and one helluva balls-to-the-wall performance from her underrated portrayer. During Deb’s confrontation with Dex, Carpenter flawlessly expressed her character’s rage, shame and disgust. “I mean it’s one thing to be in love with your brother, »

Dallas Icon Larry Hagman Dead at 81

23 November 2012 8:01 PM, PST

TV icon Larry Hagman, best known for playing the iconic J.R. Ewing on both the original Dallas on CBS and the current incarnation on TNT, passed away on Friday at Medical City Dallas hospital from cancer complications. He was 81.

Hagman — shortly after TNT’s update was announced in summer 2011 — revealed that he was being treated for “a very common and treatable form of cancer,” later specified as Stage II throat cancer. After enduring chemotherapy and radiation treatment, Hagman announced in mid-2012. “I beat that thing. I am in remission now. All good!”

Dallas is currently in production on its second season, »

Glee Recap: It Takes Two to Make It Outta Sight

22 November 2012 7:15 PM, PST

“Dynamic Duets” isn’t going to make anyone’s list of the most memorable episodes in Glee history, but in the spirit of the holiday, let’s just be thankful that we had something other than procedural reruns and pro football to help keep us from fully succumbing to tryptophan comas.

And hey, we got Beiste without a side of Schue, another amusing (and self-deprecating) dig at “Night of Neglect,” and a self-sufficient Finn who’s not just sitting around moping over his on-again, off-again romance with his high-school sweetheart.

The X Factor Top 10 Results: Did the Right Acts Get Sent to the Chopping Block? [Updated]

22 November 2012 6:00 PM, PST

President Obama pardoned not one, but two turkeys. (Congrats, Cobbler and Gobbler!) Most major networks scheduled repeat programming so families and friends could gather around the Thanksgiving table (or plot Black Friday ops with military-style precision). But Simon Cowell, dastardly Brit, scheduled an X Factor results-show telecast.

Wait, what is this? A non-animated airing of How the Grinch Stole Thanksgiving? I mean, Wednesday’s performance show was stuffed to the point of bursting (sorry if that phrase made you reach for the Tums) with haunting and harrowing tales from the Season 2 Top 10′s past.

Ratings: It's a Four-Year High, Charlie Brown!

22 November 2012 5:18 PM, PST

It was all good and no grief for the unsinkable Charlie Brown this Wednesday night, as ABC’s presentation of the blockhead’s annual Thanksgiving special drew its largest audience in four years — 8.1 million total viewers — while surging 22 percent in the demo versus 2011, hitting a 2.2.

As such, Chuck was Wednesday’s only gainer on the traditionally soft Thanksgiving Eve. The special also delivered its highest Kids 2-11 number in nearly five years.

The X Factor Recap: Thanksgiving Up the Ghost

21 November 2012 7:43 PM, PST

Dear Santa,

I’ve tried to be a good boy this year — and not just because I want a new pony. The problem is, my job requires me to watch The X Factor for a living, and it’s turning me into a monster.

No, seriously, the cynical, horrible questions that went through my mind during Top 10 performance night left me feeling like I’d booked a one-way ticket to Hell; now it’s just a matter of whether I’m going express or local.

What kinds of questions am I contemplating, you ask? Oh, I dunno: As Diamond White »
