British thesp/screenwriter Steve Coogan has been tapped to succeed the late Philip Seymour Hoffman as the star of Showtime’s Happyish.

Happyish had been ordered to series in January of this year, weeks before Hoffman’s passing. With Coogan now in place, it reverts to the pilot stage.

33 minutes ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

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.

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

47 minutes ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

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.”

When Taylor Swift's 'Out of the Woods' meets 'Circle of Life,' everything makes sense

2 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Taylor Swift's non-offensively generic pop album (that hasn't even officially released yet) is just ripe for everyone else's projections, and today has produced one remix that has melded together the queen of cats with the movie all about really big cats. With its similar power ballad tone, it was probably inevitable that Swift's "Out of the Woods" would be remixed with Lion King's "Circle of Life," courtesy of mash-up master Chambaland. Get ready though; this will probably be the beginning of the long Taylor Swift remix train ride once 1989 actually hits shelves Oct. 27. Take a listen at Chambaland's Tumblr. »
