The zombies in AMC's Fear The Walking Dead are gaining ground as the calendar creeps closer to April 10th, the season two premiere date that will mark the return of faces both familiar and fresh. Today, two new actors were announced to appear in the second season of The Walking Dead companion series, while Fox's The Rocky Horror Picture Show reboot also added a new cast member.

TVLine reports that Dougray Scott (Hemlock Grove) has joined Fear The Walking Dead Season 2 in a recurring role. Details on his character have yet to be revealed, but there is speculation that he will portray "Casey, a decent man who believes in civility”, someone who "is confident in an unexpected position of authority." It's important to note that casting details for The Walking Dead-related projects are usually misleading to provide secrecy, so we'll have to wait and see if the above description »

Premiere Dates

Will Forte’s “The Last Man on Earth” has set its midseason premiere date for March 6, replacing animated comedy “Bordertown” in the 9:30 p.m. Sunday timeslot.

The Shannara Chronicles episode 6 review: Pykon

The Shannara Chronicles gang are left up a certain creek without a paddle by the end of this week's mostly entertaining episode...

This review contains spoilers.

1.6 Pykon

If The Lord Of The Rings taught us anything, it’s never to take a shortcut through a snowy mountain fortress because you will end up falling into a chasm alongside a demon. Unfortunately no one informed the increasingly ragtag band of protagonists in The Shannara Chronicles of this golden rule as this week’s adventure marks a trip through Pykon, an old Elven outpost manned by Riff Raff from The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

After an introductory dream sequence in which Amberle ends up snogging the demon overlord (it’s as funny as it sounds), the episode takes quite a while to really get going, initially dealing with several disparate plot threads that aren’t quite given the requisite time to make an impact. »

'Grease: Live' Scores Big Ratings, Beats 'The Wiz,' 'Peter Pan'

1 February 2016 2:20 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Grease" is officially the word today, as Fox revels in the ratings high -- and critical success -- of Sunday's "Grease: Live" broadcast.

The network's first foray into the live musical game was a slam dunk, scoring an impressive 12.2 million overall viewers during its 7-10 p.m. timeslot. That number rose slightly during the final half-hour of the broadcast, which drew 12.81 million sets of eyeballs to the telecast.

And things get even better from there: The broadcast notched a 4.6 share in the coveted 18-49 demo (tying "The Sound of Music Live!"'s impressive total), and boasted Fox's largest overall audience for any series so far this season, snatching the title away from the 11 million viewers who tuned in for "American Idol"'s debut.

Compared to NBC's recent musical offerings -- which started the live TV trend back in 2013 -- "Grease" proved a formidable foe, easily taking down "The Wiz Live! »
