Ryan Murphy tweets deleted Tina/Mike scene; Gleeks can commence freaking out – Video
Ryan Murphy (@MrRPMurphy) is quite the high-impact tweeter.
Since joining the social networking site just two weeks ago, the showrunner has sent Gleeks’ hearts aflutter with a deleted Kurt/Blaine scene, as well as American Horror Story scoop and his secret wishes (Sample tweet: “A big Glee goal this year: a Madonna/Elton John mashup. #gayhatchetburying”).
This afternoon, he dropped another present for Glee fans: A deleted Mike/Tina scene that has some Pda(!) and a heart-to-heart with Mike’s parents. For fans who were disappointed with the duo’s lack of screen time this season, Murphy feels your pain. »

'Luther' Creator Says Alice Is Getting A Spin-Off Series + There's Lots Of Interest In 'Luther' Movie
It should be absolutely no secret to anyone reading S&A that we love the BBC detective series Luther, which stars Idris Elba. It's the kind of series that we wish existed, and was grown right here, Stateside, on American TV (although Luther does air on BBC America, and Bet did recently air a marathon of the series on its cable TV channel). It's not often that a Hollywood-produced series of this nature and caliber gets to claim a black man (or woman) as its lead. And the fact that Idris does an awesome job playing the cerebral, dynamic and all-around-complex Luther only ups our appreciation for the series. So when it was announced that a third season was definitely going to happen, fans everywhere cheered! However, along with that news was the revelation from Idris himself that we shouldn't expect the Alice Morgan storyline to return in any sort of significant way. »

Update: Ratings Rat Race: NBC’s London Olympics Day 12 Hits 36-Year High
Update, 1:23 Pm: The final tally is in and for last night’s XXX Summer Games (16.8/28) it was truly a Gold medal spike worthy of Beach Volleyball winners Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor. With 29.1 million viewers on average tuning in, last night was the most watched second Wednesday of any Summer Olympics in 36 years. That includes the 1996 Atlanta Summer Games, which pulled in 28.9 million on its second Wednesday. While the London Games has often topped all other non-u.S. Summer Games since 1976, it has rarely done better than Games that were held in the United States. Of course, as it has in the final numbers for 12 of the 13 nights of the London Games, NBC’s primetime 8 – 11 Pm coverage of the Olympics once again bested the 2008 Beijing Games. The Summer Olympics four years ago got 24.8 million on its second Wednesday, that’s 17% less than last night. Last night’s coverage »

Lionsgate Fiscal Q1 Earnings Slammed By Marketing And Interest Expenses
Lionsgate shares are down about 3.4% in after-hours trading after it surprised investors by reporting a net loss for the quarter that ended in June. The independent studio lost $44.2M, down from a $10.3M profit last year, on revenues of $471.8M, +80.6%. Revenues exceeded the Street’s forecast of $447.3M. But the loss of 33 cents a share contrasts with the consensus forecast for a 9 cent profit. The company says that the operations are doing just fine with strong returns from The Hunger Games, Cabin In The Woods, and What To Expect When You’re Expecting as well as — surprise! — “strong revenue gains from the Company’s home entertainment business.” Motion picture revenue was up 111% to $406.5M.

The Alki David Story Grows Weirder: What’s Up With “BarryDriller.com”?
Yeah, the video streaming site is named after Iac/InterActiveCorp CEO Barry Diller — a backer of the Aereo streaming video service — but with an “r” added to the last name. And digital entrepreneur Alki David says he offered this week to pay the major broadcast networks for the right to include their programming on the site — which he insists will become a major, Aereo-like service that will have promotional help from Charlie Sheen and Ice T. The networks should do business with him and his company FilmOn, according to a letter that he says he sent to them this week, because “There is little doubt that the proverbial genie is out of the bottle and that what benefits the consumer is for that genie to remain at large.” Will the networks play ball? Of course not. They just got him to agree to a settlement involving two lawsuits: He promised »

Showtime's new "He Saw, She Saw" promo highlights the series' epic game-changer: Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) now knows her brother is a killer -- and a serial one at that.

Naomi Campbell 'Too Nice' For A Reality Show?
Well if this doesn't beat all. Naomi Campbell may be too nice for her own reailty show? According to media reports the producers of her upcoming new reality series The Face for the Oxygen Network are not happy with her behavior on the show. She's too nice. Evidently Ms. Campbell has been so far, during the shooting of the show, a total professional and a real pleasure to work with . Which is not what the producers wanted. They wanted the old Naomi. One person involved with the show said that the "producers were excepting her to be a tantrum throwing superbitch who causes problems backstage and makes people cry." Has it come to this? A black woman acting like a rational and intelligent person on a TV show is considered a problem and unacceptable?

'Rookie Blue's' Charlotte Sullivan not comfortable with basic police work
If it isn't easy being a cop, it's especially complicated being a rookie named Gail Peck.
With an off-putting attitude that cloaks a deep vulnerability and a police family tradition to live up to -- not to mention the need to work with not just one but two ex-flames -- there's surely a lot on the plate of the officer played by Charlotte Sullivan on "Rookie Blue," the Canadian-made Thursday ABC drama now in its third season and already renewed for a fourth.
While literally on the line between the U.S. and Canada, the pleasant actress saw the effect of the show's popularity. "We were shooting, and I had to rush to my brother's wedding in Buffalo [N.Y.]," she recalls on the "Rookie Blue" set. "I was driving, and I got to the border, and I had forgotten my car's insurance card.

Keri Russell's 'The Americans' picked up by FX
You guys, Felicity is a spy.
FX has picked up its pilot "The Americans" to series, ordering 13 episodes of the drama about a married couple (Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys) who live in suburban Washington, D.C., during the Reagan years -- and who are Kgb spies. Production will start in the fall for a premiere early next year.
"We're proud to welcome 'The Americans,' a taut series that crackles with incredible performances rooted in character perspectives never explored on a U.S. television series," FX president and general manager John Landgraf says.
Russell ("Felicity," "Waitress") and Rhys ("Brothers & Sisters") will play Elizabeth and Phillip Jennings, a seemingly normal couple with two kids who are in fact running a network of Soviet spies and informants in Washington during the 1980s. Their kids don't know what they do, and their job gets even more complicated when they discover their neighbor Stan (Noah Emmerich, »
