We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including I Am Cait, Sytycd, Dancing With the Stars, Ninja Warrior and Mindy Project!
Like squirrels busily gathering up nuts to tide us over the cold season, we've been scurrying around the internet in search of TV start dates. Below is the harvest so far, which will be updated as and when new dates come in.
UK start dates for Us shows (the likes of Arrow, The Flash and Orphan Black), are in poor supply at this stage, but will be added as soon as they're confirmed. As 2016 draws nearer, we'll add next year's premiere dates too.

(All times Eastern. New shows in bold)
Sunday, Sept. 6
Masterpiece: Arthur & George (PBS), 8 p.m.
Review: While this fact-based look at an episode in the life of Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle appears designed to cash in on interest in all things related to the fictional sleuth, it’s a slim construct, with a mystery that’s as wispy and unsubstantial as fog drifting in over the moors.
Monday, Sept. 7
Pickle and Peanut (Disney Xd), 9 p.m.
Tuesday, Sept. 8
Late Show with Stephen Colbert (CBS), 11:35 p.m.

The Directors Guild of America has released its best and worst lists of TV shows that hire female and minority directors.
Four out of the 27 worst violators — shows that had no minorities or women directing — were HBO productions, including “Boardwalk Empire,” “The Brink,” “The Comeback” and Cinemax/HBO’s “Banshee.”
The year’s top network in diverse hires was Bet, which had three shows — “Being Mary Jane,” “The Game,” “Single Ladies” — with 100% minority or female directors. CBS’ “The McCarthys” came in at No. 4 at 93%. (See full list below)
Overall, female directors are seeing a modest gain in employment on television as the number of episodes directed by women rose to 16% from 14% for the 2014-15 season, the DGA report shows.
But DGA president Paris Barclay, a veteran TV director and showrunner, said much more needs to be done. “The uptick in the number of episodes directed by women — modest but hopeful »

Ask any Outlander fan and they'll tell you without hesitation that there's nothing worse than the #Droughtlander. We're supposed to survive the many long months until next year without any new episodes of Outlander...it's only been two months since this show left our lives and we're already dying for more of Jamie (Sam Hueghan) and Claire's (Caitriona Balfe) epic love story. And now that Starz has announced that two of its series, new gritty ballet drama Flesh and Bone and returning series Da Vinci's Demons, will be released in full for binge-watching, we immediately wondered if the same would be true of Outlander! Could you imagine getting a full season of Outlander all at once? »

It was Starz's turn Friday at the Television Critics Association press tour today where several major announcements about the premium cabler's original series were made.
First up they've renewed their big-budget pirate drama "Black Sails" for a fourth season with that next batch of ten episodes set to begin production this Fall in South Africa ahead of a Q1 2017 airing.
The renewal comes as the show's third season wraps production and goes to air in the first quarter of 2016 with Ray Stevenson joining this year in the role of Blackbeard.
Next up, the network has also revealed that they'll follow the Netflix model with both their eight-episode ballet-themed limited series "Flesh and Bone," and the ten-episode third and final season of their genre period action series "Da Vinci's Demons" set to launch all at once.
Starz subscribers will be able to watch the entire season either through Starz Play or »

Twilight Time brings the famed musical romance The Fabulous Baker Boys to Blu-ray for the first time, the late 80’s classic which snagged a small clutch of Academy Award nominations as it became one of the decade’s most iconic titles. Hailed by critics at the time for its disassociated ambience with the age of excess, the film still feels as equally unfettered to any particular period. The first of only two films to be directed by Steve Kloves, a striking casting is lorded over by an unforgettably scintillating Michelle Pfeiffer in one of her most notable early roles. The title’s sterling reputation may have outgrown the film’s quiet demeanor, a rarity in that it still remains difficult to succinctly classify. It’s exactly this resistance to not just two decades worth of cinematic expectation since it first wooed audiences, but also its challenge to our limited means »

Is Ghost toast?
Maybe not yet, but that’s the situation that’s brewing as Starz’s Power kicks off its second season. James “Ghost” St. Patrick’s nightclub is kaput (at least for now), his drug business is having a serious staffing problem and he’s about to find out that his sidepiece is a Fed. Oh yeah and, unbeknownst to Ghost, his former mentor wants him dead.
Read on as we review what happens in “Consequences.”

With great power comes great responsibility. And with Starz’s Power comes the certainty that a major character won’t make it out of Season 2 alive.
The drama — which returns Saturday (9/8c) and follows drug boss/aspiring nightclub mogul James “Ghost” St. Patrick (played by Omari Hardwick) — will lose “someone that we have been invested in” this season, creator Courtney Kemp Agboh tells TVLine.
“A character is killed by someone who you never see come in,” she elaborates.

Warning: The following story contains spoilers from Outlander‘s Season 1 finale.
The credits may have rolled on Outlander‘s brutal Season 1 finale, but the aftershock of the violence against Jamie Fraser “definitely carries forward,” series creator and executive producer Ronald D. Moore says.
If you missed the episode, Moore is referring to Jamie’s repeated rape and emotional torture at the hands of Black Jack Randall, who was later taken out of the picture by Murtagh’s brilliant plan and a herd of cattle. (Full recap here.)

Warning: This recap contains spoilers for Outlander‘s Season 1 finale.
Deep breaths, everyone.
For months now, Outlander‘s Black Jack Randall, a sadistic Redcoat who makes Jeffrey Dahmer look like a mewling kitten in comparison, has had Jamie Fraser in his sights. In the season finale, Randall slakes his desire by taking command of not only the Scot’s body but also his soul.
I was gonna write, “The latter is harder to watch,” but that’s just not true. Both Jamie’s rape and its psychological aftereffects are horrifying, compelling, awful and expertly acted, and they provoke so many reactions/conversations, »
