Consider this a formal Apb for Nashville‘s Connie Britton.
Because although the musical ABC series’ second On the Record special — which aired Wednesday — is great, it could be so much greater if our favorite redhead took part in the live music goodies in some fashion.*
In short: I want Rayna’s real-life counterpart on stage, y’all.

Ever since finding fame in the '80s thanks to sitcom Moonlighting and explosive action movie Die Hard, Bruce has been a regular on our screens, appearing in films great, good, not-so-good and Cop Out.
With John McClane himself celebrating the big 6-0, Digital Spy staff reminisce about their favourite Bruce Willis movies, while you can vote for your personal favourite in the poll below...
Die Hard - Morgan Jeffery (TV Editor)
There's a million reasons to love 1988's Die Hard - the colourful supporting characters like Al (Reginald VelJohnson), Ellis (Hart Bochner) and Argyle (De'voreaux White), action cinema's greatest ever villain in Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), Michael Kamen's brilliantly '80s score...
But the big reason is Bruce. Sure, New York cop John McClane was a tough guy, but what Willis brought to the part »
Cybill Shepherd says she's always been a believer.
The Do You Believe actress opened up to Et about how her faith got her through tough times.
In 2012, Cybill was engaged to psychologist Andrei Nikolajevic, but they never made it to the alter.
"I think I had a bit of a broken heart, and there was a part of it that wasn't going to heal, and that's when I turned to Jesus and then I got the offer to do this film," she said.
Watch: See Who Inspires the Women of Hollywood
In the new Christian drama, Do You Believe, Cybill plays a grieving mother. "It's really kind of a heavy part, but you get to see her come around and get her faith back," she explains. "And that's the journey. It was thrilling to play that."
A&E's "Bates Motel" begins what should be a pivotal third season on Monday (March 9) night. Series creators Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin have always approached the "Psycho" prequel as a finite piece of storytelling and Ehrin tells me that the plan is still for "Bates Motel" to be a five-season arc. Presumably -- but not necessarily, since Ehrin and Cuse retain a cone of spoiler silence -- that's a five-season arc from Norma and Norman Bates' arrival in White Pine Bay through to the events that are implied took place before Marion Crane hit the road with $40,000 of somebody else's money and sought refuge from the rain in Bates Motel. "Bates Motel" started off in a dark place, ended the first season with a murder and the second season only added torque to the twisty dynamic between Norman and Norma. In Season 2, we had unearthed secrets of incest, »

"Obviously talent is in her veins," Val told Et's Kevin Frazier, pointing out that Rumer's parents Bruce Willis and Demi Moore have both had famous dance scenes throughout their careers. Bruce's came on the TV show Moonlighting, while Demi dazzled fans in Striptease.
Aside from taking home a mirrorball trophy, Val's primary focus is pleasing Rumer's parents.
"They're her parents and I want to make them proud because they're her parents," Val said. "Not what their names are or what their personal accomplishments are but more about what parents are to their children."

Cheers are in order for James L. Burrows and Robert Butler, joint recipients of the inaugural Directors Guild Lifetime Achievement Award in Television. The honor will be presented to both directors at the 67th annual DGA Awards.
For Burrows, whose directing credits in television include landmark series such as “Taxi,” “Cheers,” “Will & Grace,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “The Millers,” the award is a culmination of an illustrious career marked by myriad professional high points, the first of which was his very first created by credit on the 1982 “Cheers” pilot.
“To get a ‘created by’ credit on that show — the Charles brothers were gracious enough to give me that — was so memorable,” says Burrows, eight episodes shy of directing 1,000 over the course of his career. “To see these characters that were thought up by the three of us first appear in front of a live audience and for the audience »

A quick review of tonight's "Gotham" — and thoughts on future reviewing plans for the show — coming up just as soon as I believe a giant bullfrog lives in my abdomen, controlling my thoughts... "Rogues' Gallery"(*) was relatively streamlined as "Gotham" episodes go, with a bunch of characters (Bruce, Alfred, Nygma, Falcone) absent, and with the Crime of the Week taking up so much focus that the appearances by everyone save Gordon and Bullock felt like cameos. Too often, the show suffers from trying to do too many things at once, which wasn't really the case here. (*) "Gotham" continues to make weird choices with episode titles, whether naming them after characters who barely appear or, here, naming it after a group that won't exist until long after the show ends. (Technically, Penguin and Catwoman are in this one, but only one of them going by their supervillain alias.) The problem with keeping things simple, »
