• Fox’s The X Factor is undergoing more judging shakeups. Although the reality singing competition added Britney Spears and Demi Lovato this season, judge L.A. Reid is departing the series following the finale.

• Dreams do come true! Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) will host NBC’s Saturday Night Live on Jan. 19.

• In the aftermath of the tragic Newtown, Conn., shooting, TLC wisely delayed the premiere of its one-hour special Best Funeral Ever. Can we rename TLC (The Learning Channel) to Nsc (Nothing is Sacred Channel)?

For years, Dr. House imparted wisdom not only to those in his office, but also to us, the audience, watching him be a snarky, grumpy old man. He's a smart guy, so there's no reason to doubt that some profound stuff came out of his mouth every so often. Though the intelligence is usually mixed [...]

'Django Unchained,' 'Steel Magnolias' lead NAACP Image Award nominees

11 December 2012 3:38 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Lifetime's "Steel Magnolias" remake dominates the list of this year's NAACP Image Award nominees with seven nods, while "Django Unchained" and "Beasts of the Southern Wild" picked up four each in film categories, and "Grey's Anatomy" and "Treme" nabbed four in TV.

Designed to honor "the accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature and film," the annual Image nominations reliably offer up some real headscratchers: Tyler Perry is a best actor contender for "Alex Cross"? Amber Riley is a lead actress on "Glee"? The critically acclaimed "Middle of Nowhere" isn't worth a mention as outstanding independent film?

But there's also welcome, and rare, recognition for HBO's "Treme," plus well-deserved nods across the board for "Django" and "Beasts."

A partial list of this year's nominees in the film and TV categories follows. For a complete list, including music and literary categories, visit the Image Awards official site. »

7 December 2012 11:16 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Acclaimed actor Hugh Laurie is an absolute jewel in the encrusted crown that is the British film industry, and has starred in countless roles in films, television and theatre both sides of the pond, not to mention his more recent music career where he adds yet another string to his bow! Now, you can catch him starring as David Walling in The Oranges, in UK and Irish cinemas from 7th December.

The Oranges tells the story of two families; the Walling’s and the Ostroff’s who are thrust in to a moral dilemma when the eldest Ostroff daughter Nina (Leighton Meester) embarks on an affair with patriarch of the Walling household David (Laurie), old enough to be her father. This quirky, off-beat comedy also stars Hollywood favourites Catherine Keener and Oliver Platt, and sheckshy heart-throb Adam Brody.

Exclusive: Brandon Seifert and Lukas Ketner talk Witch Doctor: Mal Practice

27 November 2012 2:58 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After the impressive debut of Witch Doctor in 2011, Doctor Morrow returns this week in Witch Doctor: Mal Practice #1. I recently caught up with series writer Brandon Seifert and artist Lukas Ketner to talk about what we can expect from the mini-series, plans for future issues, and their interest in a Witch Doctor TV series:

For those that aren’t familiar with Witch Doctor, can you tell our readers how this all came together?

Lukas Ketner: It came from an idea Brandon had initially. We really wanted to do something that was a portfolio piece so that we could show that we could create comics.

Brandon Seifert: We started meeting up and talking about potential story ideas. The basic idea of Witch Doctor is something I came up with years ago and was just sitting in my notebook. I never really knew what to do with it before, but it »

Michael C. Hall’s ‘Dexter’ Downgrade Echoes Good Actors Punished For Bad Writing

25 November 2012 12:18 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Rachel Bennett

Television Editor & Columnist


Showtime’s Dexter keeps chugging along with its seventh season tonight, and though it’s improved this year, the drama no longer sparks as much conversation as it used to.

This year’s Emmys is the first since 2008 that the show wasn’t nominated for Outstanding Drama Series, reflecting viewers’ waning interest in the serial killer series. Lead Michael C. Hall received his fifth nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, but he has yet to take home a statuette (He did receive the 2010 Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama).

What surprises me most about this year’s nominations is how little pundits considered Hall to be a serious contender for the award — and I agreed with them, even if it had nothing to do with his actual performance. Instead, I took into account more »

Hugh Laurie Could Play Blackbeard In New TV Show

21 November 2012 5:24 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now that Hugh Laurie has officially hung up his stethoscope and has stopped talking in an American accent, he might like to dedicate his time to something other than unlikely blues guitar albums and bad movies that nobody ever went to see.

Well, shiver me timbers: it’s been reported that the former House M.D. star could follow in the footsteps of fellow Brit Ian McShane in playing infamous pirate bastard Blackbeard for upcoming pirate-themed TV show Crossbones. Yes, Crossbones. That’s its name.

Crossbones will be overseen by Neil Cross (ha!), who worked on British TV show Luther. Apparently this thing will be set in 1715 in the Bahamas, where Edward Teach (Blackbeard) rules over the island town of New Providence, which will of course be an utter dive in every respect with all the rape and pillaging you can imagine. Well, maybe not all the rape and pillaging you can imagine, »

‘The Mob Doctor,’ ‘Ben And Kate’ Among Likely TV Series Cancellations

Rachel Bennett

Television Editor & Columnist


This week, several new series bit the dust: ABC’s drama Last Resort, ABC’s drama 666 Park Avenue and CBS’s comedy Partners.

They will join NBC’s comedy Animal Practice and CBS’s drama Made in Jersey in rookie TV heaven, where they will live on in YouTube clips.

Fox’s The Mob Doctor airs tonight, but the drama likely won’t last past its 13-episode order. Its last broadcast, on Nov. 12, drew 3.1 million viewers and a 0.9 rating in the coveted 18-49 adults demographic. In comparison, take a look at the ratings of the aforementioned canceled freshman shows:

• Made in Jersey: The final episode of the legal drama attracted 5.8 million viewers and a 18-49 demo rating of 0.8.

Animal Practice: The last episode saw 3.8 million people and a 18-49 demo rating of 1.0.

• Partners: The episode that aired before its cancellation pulled in a series low rating, »

American Horror Story’s Franka Potente Says ‘Asylum’ is ‘Sick Stuff’

16 November 2012 5:01 AM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Two weeks ago, Franka Potente (Copper) entered the Briar Cliff Manor, claiming to be Anne Frank (yes, That Anne Frank) and that Dr. Arden (played creepily by James Cromwell) was a Nazi war criminal, who performed experiments on young girls. That’s just a sliver of this wild, disturbing and unsettling season of American Horror Story: Asylum has in store for viewers.

Potente who is still fondly remembered for her starring role in Run Lola Run, saw more exposure with roles in Blow and the Jason Bourne films. Brief stints on The Shield, House M.D. and Psych opened television to her and she is currently a regular on BBC America’s Copper, which just got picked up for Season 2. Potente is also working on her first fiction novel. We recently spoke briefly with Potente on a conference call about this juicy role and some of the elements about Ahs that make it so compelling. »

NCIS, Ep. 10.06, “Shell Shock (Part I)”: A painful past and a suspicious witness make for a whole lot of trust issues

14 November 2012 11:10 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

NCIS, Season 10, Episode 6: “Shell Shock (Part I)”

Written by Nichole Mirante-Matthews

Directed by Leslie Libman

Airs Tuesdays at 8pm (Et) on CBS

Television has the potential to influence millions of people, for better or for worse. One of the best things about the medium is that not only does it entertain, but it can also teach and enlighten. Many shows have used their wide reach to inspire self-expression (Glee) or educate and increase awareness for certain issues and illnesses (House M.D.), even contributing to charities and foundations established to promote well-being and better living. With “Shell Shock (Part I)”, NCIS spotlights a condition that has increasingly gained attention for its negative effect on soldiers returning from duty overseas, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Like most veterans, Captain Joe Wescott, (played by Brad Beyer), carries with him painful memories from his time served in the armed forces. His mental state is noticeably unbalanced, »

‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Chicago Fire’ Get Full Seasons

13 November 2012 6:34 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Another day, another set of freshman shows renewed for a full season after a promising debut this fall.

NBC has picked up its second new fall drama by giving a full 22-episode season order to Chicago Fire, the new fire department series from Law & Order creator Dick Wolf. Meanwhile, The CW also picked up a second new drama, ordering an additional nine episodes for their Beauty and the Beast revival, thereby bringing the first season to 22 episodes, as well.

Chicago Fire isn’t exactly a runaway hit, but it’s not a disaster, either. In fact, the series just hit a ratings high with its last episode (though that might have been due to a special airing of The Voice as a lead-in). The series stars House M.D. veteran Jesse Spencer, Taylor Kinney, Monica Raymond, Lauren ...
