Lena Dunham Gets Naked, Spoofs Girls' Nude Scenes on Saturday Night Live
We were ready for a bunch of naked jokes and perhaps a Girls parody during Lena Dunham's debut on Saturday Night Live. And boy did she deliver. The 27-year-old star and creator of the HBO hit series went completely nude in an appropriately titled spoof called Girl, which told the story of Eve in the Garden of Eden. Taran Killam portrayed Dunham's on-screen love interest Adam (Adam Driver), while Vanessa Bayer channeled Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) as a snake. "Can you please not apple shame me right now?" Dunham asked the voice of God after she eats the forbidden fruit. "Seriously, I know I committed original sin, but at least it's original. I think I deserve some credit for that. Or at least a »
Bones: Can Booth and Brennan Trust Booth's Old Friend?
On Monday's Bones, Booth will be forced to question the honesty of a former brother in arms.
During the episode (8/7c, Fox), Booth( David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) investigate the murder of a woman that seems to indicate a believed-dead Afghani terrorist is still alive. As it turns out, the victim was actually a CIA source for Danny Beck (returning guest star Freddie Prinze Jr.), one of Booth's buddies from his Army special forces days. And although FBI-cia communication is never particularly strong, Danny makes things worse by keeping very important information from Booth during the investigation.

"It's a really nice character piece for Booth," executive producer Stephen Nathan tells TVGuide.com. "We wanted to explore what this friendship really was all about [since] one person is in the business of keeping secrets from another....

8 Things to Know About the Veronica Mars Movie
From the minute you hear Kristen Bell's hard-boiled voiceover, it's clear that some things never change — though Veronica might allege she has. Veronica Mars' titular hero claims to have moved on from her time as a teen detective ("Trust me, I know how dumb that sounds.") in favor of a prestigious career as a New York lawyer. Though Veronica might claim to be a marshmallow now, when she learns Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring) is a murder suspect (again!) she doesn't hesitate before resorting back to the righteously indignant and dogged detective we fell for all those years ago.
So who's Logan suspected of murdering this time? None other than Carrie Bishop (Andrea Estella), or as the world now knows her, Bonnie DeVille, troubled pop star and Logan's ex-girlfriend. (How many dead ex-girlfriends can one guy have?)

'Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey': Neil deGrasse Tyson and Seth MacFarlane traverse time and space
Awesome" and "unique" are among the words that have been cheapened from overuse. For "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey," let's restore both words to their rightful place.
This is an amazing example of what can happen when nonfiction TV is done with imagination, vision and purpose.
With the largest launch of a show in television history, it premieres Sunday, March 9, on 120 Fox networks and stations in 125 countries and on 90 National Geographic channels in more than 180 countries.
The show, though, is far more than the impressive numbers a media giant can deliver. It is what's at the heart of it that excites: An unquenchable thirst for discovery.
That's where host Neil deGrasse Tyson comes in. If you haven't encountered him, Tyson, 55, is basically the only rock star astrophysicist around. The Bronx-raised scientist has a direct yet fun knack for explaining complex matters.
"The cosmos is all that is, or ever was, or ever will be, »
The Following Exclusive Video: Should Emma Stay or Should She Go?
On Monday's episode (9/8c, Fox), Joe, Emma (Valorie Curry) and Mandy (Tiffany Boone) are still stationed with the crazy cult they encountered last week.

'Anger Management': Charlie Sheen delays production by not showing up to set
Stop us if you've heard this before: Charlie Sheen is causing problems on set of his TV show.
The "Anger Management" star is stirring up some major drama for his FX show as he hasn't been showing up for work, THR reports. Sheen missed several days of work in recent weeks, causing the show's studio Lionsgate to delay production. The show has been using stand-ins for the actor in his absence, but that can only go so far.
Since Sheen knows that "Anger Management" can't go on without him, he's not worried, but his co-stars are getting fed up. According to one source, the rest of the cast is threatening to stop working if Sheen keeps this up.
However, according to Sheen's publicist Jeff Ballard, the show has not used stand-ins or shot around the actor. "We did not shoot last week because another member of the cast was sick, »
SXSW: Robert Rodriguez's TV Debut 'From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series' Is Uneven But Heavy On Attitude
To some, the original 1996 film version of "From Dusk Till Dawn" is an entertaining B movie. It's a jumping off point for a young George Clooney as a leading man and an actor who makes the right connections. It's the start of a fruitful collaboration between two important modern filmmakers. To some it's just a description of the SXSW night life. But to Robert Rodriguez, it's so much more. "Quentin [Tarantino] writes the best characters in the world," Rodriguez said at the post-screening Q&A for the first episode of "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series." "To have his characters for the first time on television, you've got to give them room to breathe and live." At a nearly full Vimeo theater Saturday afternoon, Rodriguez presented the first original scripted series for the writer/director's recently launched El Rey Network. While "From Dusk Till Dawn" didn't exactly blow the doors off the convention center, »

SXSW: Seth Meyers on Taking Over 'Late Night' and Finding New Writers on Twitter
Just two weeks after taking over from Jimmy Fallon as host of NBC's "Late Night," Seth Meyers dropped by SXSW to talk about his new role with panel moderator Olivia Munn, on a Saturday off from the show. Read More: 'Late Night with Seth Meyers,' My New Favorite Show Following a "self-aggrandizing" (per Meyers') clip reel, the former "Saturday Night Live" writer and "Weekend Update" co-host tore into answering a wildly varied number of questions posed by a wisecracking Munn (who at one point advised an aspiring writer in the room that "it's never too late to sleep with studio executives") and select members of the audience. Below are the highlights: The one word that Meyers would use to describe "Late Night." "Fun. We're trying to have fun. If we're asking people to stay up late, they have to have fun.

Craig Ferguson to Produce ‘I F-ing Love Science’ Series Based on Facebook Phenom
A hugely popular educational Facebook page is hitting TV — with the help of Craig Ferguson.
Science Channel has greenlit “I F-ing Love Science” based on the Facebook page of the same name that has garnered more than 10 million likes. The CBS latenight host will produce, and made the announcement via video Saturday at South by Southwest in Austin.
“If you know anything about me, you know I love science,” Ferguson said. “Science has a naughty secret — it’s that all things are connected. And this show is going to explore the randomness of science. Think of it as a late night Google search that goes a hundred pages deep until things get weird — and then you just keep going. And there is no better partner for this kind of smart entertainment like Science Channel and Elise.”

Lena Dunham hosts 'Saturday Night Live': Watch the best and worst sketches
It was clear from the beginning that nothing was off limits for Dunham, from making fun of her constant nudity on the HBO hit show, to spoofing pop culture favorites like "Scandal," and even allowing some surprise guest stars steal the show. Check out her best (and worst) sketches below:
Best: Cold open -- Obama gets help from Liam Neeson to threaten Russia
Nothing spices up an Obama impression like Neeson's signature gravelly voice, threatening Vladimir Putin that the action star doesn't like it when things like Crimea get "taken."
Worst: Lena Dunham's monologue
We all knew it was coming -- making fun of all the nudity on "Girls." So why did that have to be the focus of Dunham's monologue?
Best: Biblical "Girl"
Now this was a fresh take on the nudity joke. »
'Once Upon a Time': Lana Parrilla previews 'a very different' Regina
Neverland is ancient history for the gang on Once Upon a Time, which returns tonight after a three-month hiatus. Lana Parrilla, for one, is happy to have the island behind her. “It was getting quite dirty for everyone,” jokes the actress who plays The Evil Queen/Regina.
Emotionally, though, things remain as messy as ever for these characters. In this second half of the third season, they will find themselves contending with Zelena, the Wicked Witch (Rebecca Mader), a villain the likes of which has never been seen on the show, according to Parrilla. “She’s fighting for different reasons, »

'Resurrection's' Frances Fisher: 'How do you accept the impossible?'
Time seems to stand still only during those last minutes of the last day of school or waiting to go through airport security.
With the exception of some actors, we all age - unless, of course, something else (besides skilled plastic surgeons) is at work. ABC's "Resurrection," premiering Sunday, March 9, considers what happens when time stands still for some, and the dead return.
This is not a zombie gore fest. Rather, it's a quiet drama in a small town. Parents endure the never-ending grief of having to bury their only child. They go on with their lives, because what else can they do?
Then, 32 years later, Jacob returns, still 8.
"A mother knows his touch, his smell," Fisher tells Zap2it. "DNA doesn't lie. »
SXSW Interview: Neil DeGrasse Tyson Explains the Scientific Agenda Behind 'Cosmos' And Why He's Not Afraid of the Religious Right
Neil DeGrasse Tyson has been a longtime warrior for the mission to popularize science. The astrophysicist's "StarTalks" podcast provides him with one regular outlet, but he just got a much bigger one: With "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey," a flashy updated version of Carl Sagan's original 1980 series exploring the mysteries of the universe, Tyson is addressing a larger audience than ever before. The Seth McFarlane-produced show, written by Sagan's widow Ann Druyan, features Tyson as host as he discusses mind-blowing aspects of the universe in addition to the history of those responsible for exploring its secrets. After premiering the first episode at SXSW, Tyson sat down with Indiewire to discuss his relationship to the show's legacy and why he isn't concerned about its potential to offend the religious right. "Cosmos" is set to premiere across 10 Fox networks Sunday night at 9pm. Carl Sagan wasn't ostracized by the science world, but »

‘Saturday Night Live’ Ratings Down With Lena Dunham As Host
The big NBC promo push for Lena Dunham‘s hosting of Saturday Night Live that included her appearing on Today and Late Night With Seth Meyers did not pay off, even with Girls creator/star discussing/displaying some of her signature nudity on the late-night sketch show.
