I don't know about you, but I loved The Devil's Advocate. Despite Keanu Reeves awful accent, Taylor Hackford's horror/legal thriller gave us one of the last great performances from Al Pacino who chews each scene as the perfect big screen Satan. Plus, we got a sexy Charlize Theron and a buck naked Connie Nielsen in one of the most awkward sex scenes in movie history. Well, it looks like we may get a new take on The Devil's Advocate as ER creator John Wells has a pilot commitment from NBC. »

In a few short hours, one of six housemates will go down in the Big Brother history books as the 15th winner of the show (alright, so it's not like they'll be studied in schools or anything, but it's something, right?). But where will they fit in the record? Will they be a worthy winner, or a disappointment? Will they be looked back on with glee or with grimaces?
That remains to be seen, but in the meantime we have 14 winners to rank. Who is the best? Who is the worst? We're not going to claim this is definitive - we switched our own minds around about 27 times just while compiling our running order - but take to the comments to give us your views. And so, in order from worst to best, here we go...

Oh dear. Well, someone had to be at the bottom of the list, »
Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce is hooking Lisa Edelstein up with a new Bff.
Alanna Ubach (Hung, Men of a Certain Age) is joining Bravo’s first-ever scripted drama in the series-regular role of Jo, a blunt, brassy New Yorker and Abby’s best friend from college who comes to La to help her through her divorce.
Ubach’s character will fill the void left by Janeane Garofalo, who, as TVLine first reported, is exiting the show.

The major networks are hoping to get religion, or at least a big dose of spirituality, on the air next year. Medical procedural shows are in demand, too, along with female-lead dramas and workplace comedies. Family dramas, period pieces, conspiracy thrillers and heavy-duty sci-fi concepts — not so much.
These are among the takeaways from the annual rite of summer in which talent agents and other reps for creatives make the rounds with TV development executives. The goal is for percenters to gain insight into the themes, concepts and settings most intriguing to network execs, in order to advise clients on how to shape pitches that are likely to strike a chord.
As ever, the subjects discussed in agency meetings deal only with the broadest themes, not hard-and-fast rules. One message that was consistent across the major networks was the push for writers to bring in passion projects, even things they »

Here at Digital Spy, we're lucky enough to get a batch of pictures from each night's episode pinged directly to our inboxes every day - and there always tend to be some amusing snaps in there. It's Big Brother - how could there not be?
But while we were perusing today's selection, for some reason they looked particularly silly. Is this how the housemates always look? Or have they finally cracked in the last week of the show? We'll present the evidence and - in those legendary Big Brother words - you decide...
Exhibit #1: Ashleigh is not happy.
Either she's furious about something or she's overdone it on the Tangfastics.
Exhibit #2: Ashleigh is baffled.
Er, what did you just say?
Exhibit #3: Chris is fed up of gritting his teeth.
"I do like you. I swear. Yes. Really. Now leave me alone please."
Exhibit #4: No, seriously, Chris is fed up. »
Heart-attacks, serial killers, gunshot wounds and Thalaron radiation. You name it, Alan Dale’s characters have been killed by it…
Warning: contains spoilers for Alan Dale's roles between 1985 and 2014. Listing them here would more or less defeat the object.
Whenever the credits roll on a TV episode or film in which his character doesn’t end up kicking the bucket, it’s a good day for Alan Dale. If he can keep up his current trend of not dying on Once Upon A Time and Dominion then his ratio of role demises to survivals may just start to even out.

Showtime has decided to bring Homeland back with a double-episode salvo.
The first two episodes of Season 4 — which is being filmed entirely on location in South Africa, and finds Carrie Mathison assigned to one of the most volatile and dangerous CIA stations in the Middle East — will air back-to-back on Sunday, Oct. 5, starting at 9/8c.
Hoping to have amped up the Homeland buzz by that measure, Showtime has in turn moved up the series premiere for The Affair — a twisty relationship drama starring Dominic West (The Wire), Ruth Wilson »
Television is full of surgeons, some good and some, well—let’s just say you wouldn’t want them to operate on you or anyone you know.
When Cinemax’s The Knick, a show about the early days of surgery, premieres Friday, viewers will meet yet another TV surgeon: Dr. John Thackery (Clive Owen), a gruff doctor who’s often up to his elbows in blood. Because The Knick is set in the early 20th century, Thackery is lacking many of the luxuries today’s medical professionals have. But he still proves more trustworthy than, for example, Grey’s Anatomy’s Leah Murphy. »

Early in the new Cinemax drama "The Knick," Dr. John Thackery boasts of "the astonishing modern world in which we live," insisting that "We now live in a time of endless possibility. More has been learned about the human body in the last five years than in the previous 500." What is such an astonishing time to him is a very quaint one for us, since "The Knick" (it premieres Friday at 10) takes place in Manhattan in the year 1900. Viewed through a modern lens, Thackery's surgical techniques seem primitive, even barbarous, but in the context of his time — when a procedure we take for granted like an appendectomy is still considered dangerous and experimental — he and his colleagues are miracle workers. "The Knick" arrives in an era where the possibilities for television drama are as limitless as they were for medicine in 1900. It's a period where a Matthew McConaughey can commit »

The opening minutes of "The Knick" throw down a gauntlet. We're introduced to Clive Owen's John Thackery and his distinctive mustache at a red filtered opium den in 1900 New York City. Accompanied by an anachronistic score from Cliff Martinez, Thackery heads off in a carriage, removing his white leather shoes to shoot up between his toes. In no time, Thackery has reached the Knickerbocker Hospital, where he's thrust into the middle of a placenta previa surgery, like all surgeries in the period, a harrowing and bloody prospect. You're in or you're out. There are no in-betweens. Steven Soderbergh, who directed (and shot and edited) the entirety of the first "Knick" season, wouldn't have it any other way. "[T]he first seven minutes of the first episode contain the sort of DNA of the whole show. If you're not down with how those first seven minutes go you're going to have trouble, »

Harry Lennix, who played a general in “Man of Steel” and the assistant director of the FBI Counterterrorism Division on NBC’s “The Blacklist,” has quietly become a prolific producer with three movie projects already completed.
“I decided that I needed to take control,” the Chicago native told Variety.
He’s starred in and financed “H4,” a street version of William Shakespeare’s “Henry IV”; “Mr. Sophistication,” chronicling the journey of a stand-up comedian inspired by Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor; and “Revival,” a gospel concert movie starring Mali Music, described by Lennix as “‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ meets ‘The Wiz.'”
With longtime associate Steve Harris, the duo has formed Exponent Media Group and made a distribution deal for “H4″ and the concert movie to be shown through Nehst Media’s Digiplex chain early next year. He’s assembling investors for a film fund with plans for five more films »

Christina Hendricks is best known for her role as Joan Holloway, and the Mad Men star's own experience with agencies (ad or otherwise) is about as fraught as her fictional counterpart's. In a new interview with The Guardian, Hendricks says that her role on the hit show elicited a dearth of enthusiasm from the very people who were supposed to be in charge of her career. "[My agency] said, 'It's a period piece, it's never going to go anywhere. We need you to make money and this isn't going to make money.' They ended up dropping me." Hendricks and her manager »

As a kid growing up in the late 80s/early 90s in a small town in Lancashire there weren’t many places to buy the comics I so adored. I had to rely on the book stall in the local market to pick up the comics I wanted to read – and those that just caught my eye. Back I had three staple titles I would collect: Justice League International, New Warriors and Guardians of the Galaxy. However these cinematic Guardians aren’t my Guardians of the Galaxy…
Back then it was the adventures of Vance Astro, Charlie-27, Starhawk and a certain Yondu Udonta, who would travel the galaxy battling the Badoon. »

"Sharknado 2: The Second One" premiered on SyFy last night and as expected, the ridiculous factor was high and the gif-able scenes came out in full force. This sequel did not disappoint.
If you didn't watch or if you want to relive all the magic, we're taking a look back at the 23 most outrageous moments from the fine disaster film. There were actually more like 120 moments because Every minute of this movie was absolutely bonkers, but we narrowed it down to the creme de la creme.
Here you go:
1. Right off the bat (bats actually play into the film later, by the way), Fin (Ian Ziering) freaks out when he sees sharks falling from the sky outside of his plane. "It's happening again," he says to April (Tara Reid.)
2. Eventually the sharks completely take over the flight and one busts right through flight attendant Kelly Osbourne's Head.
3. Then there »

With great power comes great…. Er, wrong universe.

Let's get the Comic-Con 2014 live-blogging extravaganza started! Over the next four days, I'll be blogging and live-blogging on a slew of Comic-Con panels from Ballroom 20 and Hall H. Thursday will see a number of live-blogs, as I sit in Ballroom 20 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Let's start with "24," which returns to Comic-Con for the first time in years, bringing Kiefer Sutherland and promising many, many questions about the future of the franchise, as well as "24: Live Another Day." As recently as Sunday, Peter Rice said that no determinations had been made about whether "24" will live yet another day, but let's see if there were secrets being saved for San Diego... 10:01 a.m. The panel was supposed to start a minute ago, but people are still filing in.
