Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t watched the season finale of Sons of Anarchy, do not read below.
The death toll on FX’s Sons of Anarchy has swelled once again, and while that’s to be expected from a season finale of one of the most deadly shows on TV, the shocking murder of Maggie Siff’s Tara Knowles at the hands of Gemma (Katey Sagal) is one that will change Jax Teller forever.
“Obviously, it’s a major shift in the mythology,” executive producer Kurt Sutter said at an intimate screening event Tuesday evening in Los Angeles. “I knew that, »

BAFTA Awards: Is ‘Candelabra’s’ Michael Douglas a Lock?
When BAFTA voters diverge from the Oscars, history shows they are more likely to favor an overlooked American or an unexpected European than a Brit.
This year, once again, a strong contingent of Brits have great chances to be honored on both sides of the Atlantic. These include Steve McQueen, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michael Fassbender for “12 Years a Slave,” producer David Heyman for “Gravity,” Paul Greengrass for “Captain Phillips,” Emma Thompson and producer Alison Owen for “Saving Mr. Banks” and Judi Dench, Stephen Frears and Steve Coogan for “Philomena.”
Perhaps Ejiofor is a marginally hotter »

'Sons of Anarchy' Season 6 finale: Maggie Siff, Kurt Sutter and Katey Sagal on shocking death
Spoiler warning: If you haven't seen the Season 6 finale of "Sons of Anarchy," the following contains major spoilers to the episode.
Of all the murder and mayhem that has plagued "Sons of Anarchy," the Season 6 finale death of Tara (Maggie Siff) is the one that seems to have shaken up the world and viewers the most. Tara had a long journey on the show, always putting her children first, even ahead of her love for Jax (Charlie Hunnam). In the end though, she was just another victim of the club's violent lifestyle, dying at the misinformed hands of her own mother-in-law, Gemma (Katey Sagal).
Immediately after watching the finale, Siff, Sagal and creator Kurt Sutter spoke with members of the press about the ramifications of Gemma's actions and saying goodbye to Tara.
With only one season left of "Sons of Anarchy," Sutter says the death will leave Jax in unknown territory. »

Despite Silvio Berlusconi’s Ouster, Mediaset Rides High … For Now
As Silvio Berlusconi faces a likely acceleration of his ongoing political demise, his Mediaset TV empire looks to be on the comeback trail. But without its leader in a position of political influence, the financial fortunes of Italy’s top commercial broadcaster may face an eventual downturn.
Berlusconi was expelled from the Italian Senate on Nov. 27 after being convicted of tax fraud in August in a case pertaining to Mediaset’s dealings with Hollywood. Italian law prevents the 77-year-old three-time prime minister, who dominated the country for nearly two decades, from holding or running for public office for six years.
During his time in power, Berlusconi appointees stunted the growth of pubcaster Rai, Mediaset’s main rival. He hampered feevee competitor Sky Italia by saddling it with a value-added tax hike.
Still, though he is out of parliament, Berlusconi remains in politics as head of his just-relaunched Forza Italia party, »

About What Happened To Mike Peterson On Last Night's Mid-Season Finale Of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'
Well it looked like maybe he was joining the team, but after last night's episode, I'm not so sure now. In what was a cliffhanger episode last night, Mike Peterson, the character played by J. August Richards in the very first episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and whom we didn't see again until last night's episode, returned to provide "super-soldier" support for Agent Coulson. Without totally spoiling it for those who haven't seen last night's episode yet, Peterson is called upon by Coulson, and he does get to put on his superhuman strength act when needed,even donning the S.H.I.E.L.D. uniform, but something happens at the end that leaves audiences guessing as to whether he's alive or dead. I say he survived, and we will see him return when the second half of the season picks up in early 2014. After all, we didn't see a body, did we? »

Scripps Networks Interactive Shares Rise on Discovery Acquisition Talk
Shares of Scripps Networks Interactive climbed more than 7% in early trading Wednesday, buoyed by the news that Discovery Communications is considering a bid for the parent company of Food Network, Hgtv and other channels.
Sni shares were up more than 7% in the first hour of trading, approaching the stock’s 52-week high of $81.21. In after-hours activity on Tuesday, following Variety’s report on Discovery’s renewed interest in a deal, shares shot up past the $86 mark.
Wall Street analysts were mostly positive on the prospect of a deal. Knoxville, Tenn.-based Sni has strong brands in Food, Hgtv and Travel Channel, but it is handicapped by its small size at a time when MVPDs are clearly in the midst of a spurt of consolidation. Discovery also has extensive international reach, while Sni has struggled to make inroads in overseas markets, even with content that has universal appeal.

"We're looking forward to adapting his incredible work and bringing those indelible characters to a new generation of viewers."

Best of 2013 (Behind the Scenes): 'Orange Is the New Black' star Uzo Aduba on bringing Crazy Eyes to life
Trying to choose your favorite Orange Is the New Black character is like trying to choose your favorite Olivia Pope ensemble — nearly impossible. Yet even though the show is stacked with unforgettable creations — Red! Taystee! Pennsatucky! Miss Claudette! Nicky! Pornstache, even! — one stands out from the pack: Suzanne Warren, best known among Litchfield’s inmates as Crazy Eyes.
At this point, however, it’s tough for any fan of the show to use Suzanne’s unkind nickname in good conscience. Sure, she tends to come on just a little too strong — but she’s also a kind, delightfully unfiltered presence »

Amazing Race's Travis and Nicole: Our Bad Moments Were Overblown

Sundance Channel Developing American Remake of Israeli Drama 'Reaching for Heaven'
Scandinavia and Israel are currently where it's at in terms of television series being mined for possible U.S. adaptations. "The Bridge," "The Killing" and the upcoming "Those Who Kill" are all Nordic remakes, while the success of "Homeland" has been driving interest in other formats from Israel that might work when shifted to America. Sundance Channel and indie studio Entertainment One are the latest to try their hand at adapting an Israeli drama. They've teamed up to develop "Reaching for Heaven," a 2000 series about what happens to a family when its patriarch becomes religious -- in the original, which ran for two seasons on Keshet and was produced by Assaf Amir’s Norma Productions, by adopting orthodox Judaism. The U.S. version is being written by Mike Seid and will be set in the very secular Las Vegas, in order to explore religion in Sin City. "Sundance Channel has »
