“Did you see last night’s ratings for ‘Ray Donovan?’”
It’s the morning after the show’s second-season finale, and Showtime president David Nevins sounds like a proud father, high-fiving a visitor to his Westwood office and firing off stats: The Liev Schreiber drama hit a series-high 2 million viewers. “It’s up 40% from last year,” he says, with a broad grin.
Nevins has good reason to be happy on this late-September day. “Ray Donovan” indeed blossomed into a ratings hit for his network in its sophomore season (even with behind-the-scenes drama forcing a change in showrunner for season three). “Masters of Sex” also wrapped its second season with heightened critical acclaim for the show and the performances of stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan.
With a week to go before the fourth-season relaunch of “Homeland,” the early reviews are mostly good as the drama reboots itself in an effort »

How could we turn down the offer of a royal banquet with Queen Vicky Pattison? The Geordie Shore star is ruling the roost in the brand new series - which starts on MTV next week - so she invited us along to a slap up dinner to celebrate.
We sat next to her loyal subject Charlotte Crosby and had a natter about everything from the situation with Gaz to our shared love of Damon from The Vampire Diaries - and we even got matching Geordie Shore tattoos. Don't worry, mum, they were temporary.
But throughout the evening we also had a chance to grab the rest of the guys too, both to get our caricature drawn and to have a bit of dress-up fun ("We've got some crown jewels for you," the boys laughed). Obviously we dug around for some Geordie Shore gossip while we were there, so read on for 12 things we learned, »
Im-not-so-ho, the best thing about The Flash is Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West and John Wesley Shipp as Barry’s father. Im-not-so-ho, the best things about Gotham are Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald “Penguin” Cobblepot. Im-not-so-ho, the best things about Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. are Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson and Ming Na-Wen as Melinda May.
What does that say about me?
Am I getting old? Am I no longer able to appreciate a pretty-boy face or a hot young thang? Am I just being nostalgic in my appreciation of Martin, who originated the part of Tony in Rent on Broadway and played Detective Ed Green (opposite the brilliant and missed Jerry Orbach as Detective Lennie Brisco) on Law & Order, which I still regularly watch in reruns, and Ming Na-Wen, who played Dr. Jing-Mei “Deb” Chen on E.R., »

"Are we out of the woods yet?" Taylor Swift sings over and over in her new song's chorus. "Are we in the clear yet?" "Out of the Woods" is available now on iTunes, and is getting stripped every time it appears on YouTube. Still, though, a Swift fan Tumblr is -- so far -- dependably hosting. Listen here. Co-written by Jack Antonoff (who just released a whole album of similarly minded pop and synth would-be-hits under the name Bleachers), "Out of the Woods" is a desperate kind of lost love single from the "Shake It Off" star. A lot of (virtual) ink today will be devoted to the song's "last December" love interest, purportedly One Direction's Harry Styles, and partly for a good reason. Swift has always done a spectacular job of weaving relationship specifics in with evergreen heartache, painting songs like an intimate moment with one's favorite pop »
