Save for some bit roles in a smattering of unremarkable TV shows, the world hasn't heard much from Ben Savage since 2000. That's when his reign as Cory Matthews, the lovable goofball lead on the seminal Nineties sitcom Boy Meets World, came to an end. But last week, with one tweet, Savage returned to our lives: "I'm going to be a father!" the 32-year-old wrote. "Well, on TV at least. The 'Boy Meets World' sequel is officially happening!"
Yes, much to the delight of twentysomething Tgif aficionados everywhere, Boy Meets World »
It’s true; no matter what certain networks may claim about their “winter finales,” winter doesn’t actually start until December 21, and isn’t over until March 20. Syfy, at least, understands this, and has announced their appropriately-titled winter schedule accordingly.
Happily this means that, starting on Monday, January 14, 2013, we will have some great television to get us through the cold months, including the return of Being Human and Lost Girl, and the premiere of Continuum, and later in the week, the return of Ghost Hunters and Face Off.
Here’s the schedule of premieres, along with series synopses:
Syfy’S 2013 Winter Programming Highlighted By Series Premieres Of Ghost Mine, Robot Combat League, Stranded And Continuum Season Returns Of Hits Being Human, Face Off, Total Blackout, Ghost Hunters, Lost Girl, Haunted Collector And Final Season Of Merlin
New York – December 4, 2012 – Syfy will kick off the New Year with a robust winter »

If there’s one type of TV character that can appeal to younger and older viewers, it’s the TV teen.
For younger audience members, TV teens are figures to whom to relate and admire. Older audience members, on the other hand, use these characters to relive the innocence and optimism of youth that somehow gets sanded down over time.
TV teens are tricky to pull off, as they can become just as obnoxious as real teens occasionally are. But if portrayed with a relatable honesty and vulnerability, they can evolve into some of the best TV characters ever.

Before I launch into an unqualified rave of this new musical, I have a two-part confession: Somehow I managed to make it to adulthood without seeing the holiday movie that's a December constant.
And, though critics are supposed to be open-minded, I admit that I approached Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre with some trepidation figuring that this would pre-sell itself and therefore did not have to be all that good.
It has been known to happen with holiday shows, given the built-in audience of people coming to New York to shop and see the tree. Slick producers think they can put anything on the stage and people will come. Add to that how beloved this movie is, and it was inevitable that a production would happen.
So "A Christmas Story, The Musical!" is a delightful surprise. It is terrific fun, sweet without ever condescending, and mines the time in which its set, »
Starting tomorrow, you can catch up on the entirety of Suits either at USA's website or via OnDemand. I guess I should try to figure out where this business with the can opener began.

TV Guide asks if The X-Factor's mentors are hurting competitors more than they're helping. Inappropriate costumes, bad song choices and unenthusiastic advice are listed as ways the mentors have turned into an obstacle contestants need to overcome.
Brian Dennehy will appear in the final season of The Big C as Cathy's father. Considering how Cathy has had cancer for three seasons and we're only now meeting him, I expect he'll be as awful as the rest of the Jamison clan has turned out to be.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Pop-punk bands are a dime a dozen, to borrow a phrase from my American friends, but ever since hearing New York’s Pentimento earlier this year, it was clear that there’s still life in the genre. Choosing to position themselves away from the uptempo, optimistic pop-punk which dominates the airwaves, Pentimento take a huge influence from Brand New and use it to create a mid-tempo, somewhat downbeat, yet still inspiring and heartfelt record, ending up with one of the finest pop-punk records you’ll hear this side of The Wonder Years.
Opening with the heavy riffs and percussion of Unless, the guys show off everything that makes up their sound: a huge chorus, personal lyrics and an emotive vocal delivery made up of a combination of lead vocals and background screams, which compliment each other perfectly.

The wonder years are over for "Wonder Years" star Olivia d'Abo and mega music producer Patrick Leonard ... the couple is calling it quits on their marriage, TMZ has learned. Patrick -- who produced some of Madonna's biggest hits, i.e. "Like a Prayer," "Cherish," "Who's That Girl," you get the idea -- filed the docs in Los Angeles County Superior Court last week ... citing irreconcilable differences. The couple married in August 2002. According to the docs, »

It was announced this past weekend that a TV series sequel to Boy Meets World is in the works — yes, that Boy Meets World —which will star Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel as forever-sweethearts Cory and Topanga, with the real starring role being their pre-teen daughter. It’s being produced by Disney, with the logical title of Girl Meets World.
This is obviously exciting news for the Raised By Tgif generation. Admit it, you still smile when that random Boy Meets World gif shows up on your Tumblr. But this type of news is really exciting for all of us, even beyond the obvious boy/girl-meeting-the-world paradigm shift. (Let’s also hope that Disney has the ability to create a complex, realistic pre-teen girl this time around.) It shows that TV shows that we never, ever, ever thought »
After the gay highs of last week's episode, I'm disappointed to report that The Good Wife basically dropkicked three episodes worth of plot at us Sunday night and none of it ruled. It's tough when the show devotes a whole episode to plottiness, because although important things are happening, you're likely not to care about most of it. Case in point: The beleaguered Lemond Bishop reappeared, found out the feds were on to him, and waited to be arrested as Alicia contemplated the dubious requirements of her job (skirting Bishop's grimy dealings) and sympathizing with Bishop's humanity and fear of disappointing his son. Oh, whatever. Elsewhere, Eli spent the episode pissed and panicked because that shady blogger decided to post the (allegedly debunked) news of Peter's affair, and Kalinda's snarly husband Nick alleged that Lana was investigating Kalinda's work with Eli. And hey, he has an incriminating photograph to prove »
Chris O'Dowd has said that women don't see him as a sex symbol. The Bridesmaids star told GQ magazine that he blames his choice of roles for the fact that he is not viewed as "sexual". "They see me more like a guy they would like to set their sister up with," said the actor, who married journalist and presenter Dawn Porter in August. "I play very sweet characters, so people look at me like I'm the kid from The Wonder Years, rather than Brad Pitt." Last year, O'Dowd tried to break away from 'nice-guy' roles and filmed sex scenes in the TV adaptation of The Crimson Petal And The White for the BBC. The 32-year-old said that he wants a second chance to portray such scenes after experiencing unfavourable filming (more) »

NBC's latest single-camera comedy purchase is Then Came Elvis, an eighties-set project from Up All Night executive producer DJ Nash and Jason Bateman. The show details a family coming together after the parents go through a divorce, and it kinda sounds like The Wonder Years fast-forwarded a couple decades: An adult narrator reflects on his teenage years as seen onscreen. It's Bateman's first TV project through his Aggregate Films production company. »

A number of casting and production notices have come up lately and unexpectedly caught my attention. It seems to me, for starters, that a number of these celebrities are coming to Broadway for no other reason than to get themselves a Tony.
First up came the announcement that Renee Zellweger will star in a Broadway-bound adaptation of the 1961 film The Hustler. Though it has not been announced what role Ms. Zellweger will play, the choice to cast her is hard for me to wrap my brain around. To me, what that made the film so memorable were the performances of Paul Newman and Jackie Gleason. They were so strong that I don’t even remember there being a woman in the film other than in the background.
Would Zellweger take on Newman or Gleason’s role? I vaguely remember Piper Laurie playing a bit part in the film, »

There's so many very talented (and extremely attractive) famous brothers in Hollywood. When someone mentions a great sibling duo in the business many will start rattling off Ben and Casey Affleck, Mark and Donnie Wahlberg and even a sports pair like Eli and Peyton Manning. But, aren't we all forgetting possibly one of the best brothers out there? Fred and Ben Savage. Yep. The two may not be in the limelight so much these days (Fred being behind the scenes directing shows like Modern Family, Happy Endings and 2 Broke Girls), but guaranteed they're talked about on a daily basis. After all, how could you forget Kevin Arnold and Cory Matthews? You can't.
Chat about the shows you grew up with and most will say The Wonder Years and Boy Meets World. Having made two of the best characters in television history, it's hard not to consider the two actors the »
