Season 1 of USA Network’s Shooter was about how former Marine Corps sniper Bob Lee Swagger (played by Ryan Phillippe) was framed for the assassination of a foreign dignitary, and his subsequent mission to clear his name.
Season 2, premiering Tuesday at 10/9c, won’t repeat that formula at all, but instead give a face to Solotov, the infamous Chechen sniper who years ago was responsible for killing Swagger’s best friend, Donny Fenn — and now has the rest of that unit in his cross hairs.

The series premiere of “Salvation” on CBS Wednesday night failed to make a significant impact in the overnight ratings, while the Espy Awards on ABC were down for the second year in a row, according to Nielsen data.
“Salvation,” airing at 9 p.m., averaged a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.8 million total viewers. That puts it above fellow CBS summer drama “Zoo,” which is currently averaging a 0.6 and 2.9 million viewers in its third season. However, “Salvation” also shed almost 60% of lead in “Big Brother’s” audience in the key demo, with the reality series drawing a 1.9 for the night.
The Espy Awards drew a 1.4 and 5.3 million viewers. While those numbers are good enough to make the ceremony one of the biggest programs of the night, it was still down from 2016’s 1.7 and 5.6 million. The 2015 Espy Awards reached a record high, due in part to Caitlyn Jenner being honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. That »

Erica Messer: ericamesserproductions.com
“Criminal Minds” showrunner Erica Messer isn’t giving up the profiling biz quite yet. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Messer has signed a two-year pod deal with ABC Studios, “Criminal Minds’” producers. The new pact will see Messer “create original dramas for ABC Studios and continue to serve as showrunner for the long-running procedural crime drama via her production banner, Erica Messer Productions.
Messer started the production company with friend and former co-worker Deborah Cincotta and development exec Sullivan Fitzgerald (“State of Affairs”). Cincotta is Erica Messer Productions’ president of development and Fitzgerald serves as development associate.
“Together, their goal is to build a TV company known for its collaborative and empowering relationship with artists,” THR summarizes. “The production company is currently focused on spearheading network projects with both new and veteran writers for the 2018–19 development season.”
Messer has been running “Criminal Minds” for seven years and is the longest-serving writer on the CBS procedural. In 2015 she created the spinoff “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” with Erica Meredith (“Grey’s Anatomy”). The series aired for two seasons and ended earlier this year. “Charmed,” “Alias,” and “The O.C.” are among Messer’s previous credits.
“Criminal Minds” stars Kirsten Vangsness and A.J. Cook made headlines during a recent round of contract negotiations. The actresses, who portray fan favorite characters Penelope and Jennifer, pushed for the same pay as their male co-stars. The duo were successful: In June news broke that they signed new deals, received raises, and now have pay parity with male lead Matthew Gray Gubler.
Season 13 of “Criminal Minds” premieres September 27 on CBS.

Viola Davis took home the SAG Award for best supporting actress on Sunday night, and the phenomenal Fences and How to Get Away With Murder star had her biggest fan by her side: her husband, Julius Tennon. Viola and Julius, a theater veteran and TV actor, met on the set of City of Angels in 1999, just weeks after Viola prayed for a husband. "I was the loneliest woman in the world, and someone said, 'You should just pray for a husband,'" she told Page Six. "I said I wanted a big black man from the South who looked like a football player, who already had children, who maybe had been married before. Three and a half weeks later, I met my husband." The couple tied the knot in 2003 and recently renewed their vows with a star-studded second wedding ceremony; they share a daughter, Genesis, who they adopted as a »
