Although CBS’ adaptation of King’s sci-fi thriller often struggled to provide continuity and/or general suspense in its freshman season, Monday’s Season 2 premiere — written by King himself — brought the show back to its roots: a little creepy, a little confusing, but wholly entertaining.
Let’s recap what went down on our first visit back to Chester’s Mill:

USA Network’s Graceland re-opens its doors this Wednesday at 10/9c, and it’s not long at all before FBI whiz kid Mike Warren finds cause to slip away from D.C. and visit the sun-baked beach house — though what he finds there may surprise him. Guns downstairs? Unlabeled fridge finds? Strange bedfellows? Oh, and who’s the new guy…?
Jeff Eastin, who previously created USA’s White Collar, shared with TVLine a look at the changes that Graceland the show has undergone, all while maintaining (if not amplifying) its darker, sexy tone.

CSI: Miami and CSI: New York are no more, soon we’ll have CSI:Cyber but who would have thought that we would still have CSI: Las Vegas? When reviewing CSI: Complete Season 13 the most noticeable thing is it is a show that survives not only by pure popularity, but that it constantly adapts itself, never letting itself stagnate.
Though this is season thirteen (unlucky for some) I’d say that the big difference came in season twelve with Ted Danson and Elisabeth Shue. My initial surprise really was just how good Ted Danson can act now, but in a way his introduction into CSI brought him back into the shows I take time to watch. With the character of D.B. Russell, Danson moved into CSI: Las Vegas and made the role as head of CSI his own, Laurence Fishburne did well and of course we miss William Petersen as Gil »

With their giant-toothed, funnel-like mouths attacking all those in their path, the town’s residents quickly learn that a casual dip in the pool, fishing trip or routine trip to the toilet can turn deadly as the killer lampreys hunt for their next victim(s »

The CW’s new fall schedule is here. You’ll notice it looks a lot like the current one. Most shows are staying where they are, with some exceptions to accommodate new titles and a couple returning favorites getting pushed to midseason.
The first big addition is The Flash, starring Grant Gustin as the fastest man alive, which will air Tuesdays at 8 p.m. The Arrow spin-off will lead into the 10th season of Supernatural. The Flash is taking the spot of The Originals, which is shifting to Monday nights (an evening where its repeats have already gotten some exposure). On Mondays, »

They say that all good things must come to an end, when CSI: New York came to an end it may have been a good series, but felt somewhat like the lonely third sibling compared to Las Vegas and Miami. This isn’t to say that CSI: NY was a bad show, but with the release of CSI: NY – Complete Season 9: The Final Season there was a feeling that it had run its course, though seeing it end was still a sad thing.
Season nine of CSI: NY begins looking at Mac’s recent brush with death and the effects that it has had on his life. Leaving him with memory problems he has to deal with this disability while still having to run the crime lab the best he can. With his love interest Christine (Megan Dodds) a huge support to him, her kidnapping also gives the chance »

We don’t see enough of Octavia Spencer in comedy. She has continually and carefully mixed things up throughout her career – appearing in TV dramas such as ER, The X Files and CSI: NY, before taking home an Oscar for 2011’s The Help – but, she is also a gifted comedic performer. She has previously showcased those skills in most notably in Dinner For Schmucks, 30 Rock and Mom – but now she gets to really stretch those funny wings as one of the three leads in the upcoming Las Madres.
In joining this movie, she will star alongside the already cast Leslie Mann, who is riding a wave of box office success created by the recent double-whammy of Rio 2 and The Other Woman. Mann – gifted at comedy herself – had long been biding her time in small supporting roles in films such as The Cable Guy, Big Daddy and The 40 Year Old Virgin, »

It looked like CBS was ready to stop for the day after ordering five dramas and two comedies to series for the 2014-2015 season, but late Friday (May 9) afternoon, the network gave out one more series order, picking up "CSI: Cyber." "CSI: Cyber" stars Patricia Arquette and despite the title, the series actually will deal with the FBI's Cyber Crime Division. If the basics sound familiar, it's because Arquette's Avery Ryan debuted on the April 30 episode of "CSI." A similar process saw CBS' "NCIS: New Orleans" characters and setting introduced in a spring two-parter. There had been speculation that CBS might only pick up one of the nested spinoffs, but that speculation was incorrect, I guess. Between those two spinoffs and the Matthew Perry-centric remake of "The Odd Couple," CBS is banking heavily on familiarity for the 2014-2015 season. [It remains to be seen if an additional semi-spinoff, "How I Met Your Dad" goes to series. On Thursday, a variety of media reports had the order a done-deal, but CBS and 20th Century Fox TV both denied the news and, as of Friday, it seemed like things were far-from-certain.] While not quite on the level of Abraham fathering Isaac »

The planted CSI spinoff will join offshoot NCIS: New Orleans on the CBS schedule next season. CSI: Cyber was not on the list of four drama pilots picked up to series by CBS earlier today but as we reported, the project was in final negotiations for a pickup, which now has become a reality. I had heard that CBS would likely not launch the NCIS and CSI spinoffs at the same time, with NCIS: New Orleans more likely for fall and CSI: Cyber for midseason. Written-executive produced by the CSI team of Carol Mendelsohn, Anthony Zuiker and Ann Donahue, CSI: Cyber stars Patricia Arquette as Avery Ryan, Special Agent in Charge at the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI in Quantico, Va, who is tasked with solving major crimes that start in the mind, live online, and play out into the real world. The planted spinoff aired recently as an »

The original “CSI” gang is back together again as CBS has ordered a series for the “CSI” planted spinoff starring Patricia Arquette.
“CSI: Cyber” features Arquette as the head of FBI’s cyber crimes division in Quantico. The episode, which aired April 30, was written by “CSI” creator Anthony Zuiker, Carol Mendelsohn and Ann Donahue, the team that launched the original series in 2000.
CBS kept mum about the pickup but exec producer Jerry Bruckheimer spread the news via Twitter Friday afternoon.

Vitals is a new claustrophobic horror movie from director Mark Morgenstern. The film stars Christopher Showerman as Richard Carsen, a man who’s trying save his on-the-rocks marriage by taking his wife on vacation to India. Unfortunately, he winds up on ice and about to be harvested for his organs.
Morgenstern recently directed a documentary on the effects of infidelity in the electronic age. It’s called Affairs Across America: The Ashley Madison Story and is centered around the multimillionaire internet guru who started the infamous non-singles dating website with the slogan: “Life is short. Have an affair.”
Perhaps that was the impetus for making his lead character/victim in Vitals a cheating husband. We asked. Read on to find out what Morgenstern said.
Dread Central: So, Morgenstern… any relation to Rhoda? I’m sure you never heard that before; I just thought I'd throw out that little brilliant, totally unique joke of mine. »

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of Justified, stop reading now. The promo showed Danny Crowe (Aj Buckley) charging at Raylan (Timothy Olyphant), testing the 21-Foot Rule. The belief is that a man with a knife, standing within 21 feet of a man with a holstered gun, will win that showdown. How did it work out for Danny? In a way that would’ve made the late Elmore Leonard proud. Buckley phoned EW to chat about the scene that will go down as one of the series’ funniest.
