5 Reasons That Everyone Should Be Watching Masters Of Sex

26 November 2013 3:30 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Showtime has not quite achieved the respective reputations of relative rising star AMC and seasoned veteran HBO just yet; it has delivered a number of terrifically promising original series, but its brand has been stained ever so slightly by its tendency to produce shows long after their presumed expiration dates. The most recent example of this is Dexter, a series that served as Showtime’s flagship until it overstayed its welcome with audiences and concluded in a very poorly received fashion. Other shows, like Californication—and some seem to think Homeland may be on this route—continue on after their relevancy has arguably peaked.

The channel premiered the intriguing Ray Donovan back in June, but it was met with lukewarm reviews. It almost seemed as though Showtime was losing its place in the cable pantheon. Then came Masters of Sex, based on the real life research partners William Masters and Virginia Johnson, »

When Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks opens in theaters in December, audiences will delight in a movie that gives them not only a rare glimpse of the behind-the-scenes tug-of-war that ultimately brought “Mary Poppins” to the screen but also a glimpse of the creative geniuses it took to envision the classic film – everyone from a cantankerous, difficult author to an ever-optimistic, visionary entrepreneur.

Can Elisabeth Moss win SAG Award in rematch against Laura Linney?

30 October 2013 1:24 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Elisabeth Moss currently gets best odds to win Best TV Movie/Miniseries Actress at the SAG Awards for "Top of the Lake," but are we underestimating Laura Linney ("The Big C: Hereafter") yet again? In September, Moss and Jessica Lange ("American Horror Story: Asylum") were considered frontrunners for the Emmy, only for both to be ambushed by Linney, who has lost just one of her five career Emmy bids. But at SAG Lange and "American Horror Story" must compete in the drama categories, where they were entered in the horror anthology's first year, leaving Moss and Linney to reprise their Emmy rivalry head-to-head. Moss leads with 9/5 odds. She's already a two-time SAG-winner as a member of the "Mad Men" ensemble, but she has never won individually. Linney is also a SAG-winner. She previously claimed TV Movie/Mini Actress in 2008 for "John Adams" and has three other nominations for he »

Popular science fiction and fantasy author George R.R. Martin, writer of the book series "A Song of Ice and Fire" that is the inspiration for the HBO drama "Game of Thrones," has lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico since 1979.

Masters of Sex Creator Talks "Irresistable" Project, Why Sex Is Funny

6 October 2013 5:44 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Last week, following the much anticipated return of Homeland, Showtime premiered Masters Of Sex to strong reviews and ratings.

The bio-series on Dr. William Masters (Michael Sheen, who we talked to last week) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan, below with Sheen) continues tonight with the sex study getting more involved and the relationship between Masters and Johnson finding itself at an interesting place.

I recently sat down with series creator Michelle Ashford, who talked to me about her experience with these types of shows, as well as what we can expect moving forward on Masters of Sex...

TV Fanatic: How did projects like John Adams help you with this project since you’re adapting a book based on the real lives of Masters and Johnson.

Michelle Ashford: I’ve written now a ton of non-fiction. I did do John Adams, then I worked on The Pacific and I had »

‘Breaking Bad,’ ‘Modern Family’ Triumph at Emmys

22 September 2013 4:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Breaking Bad” was the one who knocked.

The night that its penultimate episode was airing on AMC, the show of the moment won the drama series Emmy.

“Holy crap,” exec producer Vince Gilligan said. “I did not see this coming. I thought this was gonna be ‘House of Cards,’ or it could have been ‘Homeland,’ or ‘Mad Men,’ or ‘Downton Abbey’ or ‘Game of Thrones’ or any number of other shows that could have been nominated.”

Despite speculation that there would be a fresh face in the laffer scene, “Modern Family” won the comedy series Emmy for a fourth consecutive year. It joins “All in the Family,” “Cheers” and “The Dick Van Dyke Show” in the four-Emmy club, one behind all-time comedy champion “Frasier.”

“We have the deepest respect for our co-nominees,” said “Modern Family” exec producer Steve Levitan. “You guys make us laugh and make us jealous every week. »

Will Movie/Mini Actor race at Emmys have only HBO nominees?

8 July 2013 10:06 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Five years ago, HBO was guaranteed wins in both the lead and supporting actor races at the Emmys as all the nominees hailed from fare that aired on the paycaster. Paul Giamatti and Tom Wilkinson took those respective races for "John Adams," the miniseries which set a record for most wins (13).  Wilkinson had also been among the lead nominees for his role in "Recount" as was Kevin Spacey with Ralph Fiennes ("Bernard and Doris") and Ricky Gervais ("Extras: The Movie") rounding out that category. To win the supporting award, Wilkinson bested co-stars from both "John Adams" (Stephen Dillane, David Morse) and "Recount" (Bob Balaban, Denis Leary).  While FX is likely to score a slew of supporting bids for the men of "American Horror Story: Asylum," HBO is predicted to own the Movie/Mini Actor category again this year.

Downton Abbey Scores Big By Booking Paul Giamatti for Season 4 Finale

25 June 2013 4:53 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Seemingly at will, Paul Giamatti can switch between being affably adorable and excruciatingly dickish, making him one of the best American actors to be cast in Downton Abbey. He’s the latest actor to join the show’s fourth season, and thank goodness for that. If there’s one actor in the whole wide world I would want to see butting heads with the locals in Downton Abbey, it’s Giamatti. Seeing him in such roles like those in The Illusionist and John Adams is all the evidence I’ll ever need to know he’s perfect for whatever is required of him in a period show such as this.

Giamatti will be playing Harold Levinson, the maverick, playboy brother of Cora (Elizabeth McGovern) and Uncle to Mary (Michelle Dockery) and Edith (Laura Carmichael). TVLine reported he won’t be appearing until the fourth season finale, but his presence will »

Paul Giamatti Goes To Downton Abbey

24 June 2013 10:05 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

High on the list of news stories we did not expect to see today is the word that Paul Giamatti has signed on to appear in TV mega-hit Downton Abbey, turfing up in the finale of the currently-shooting season four as the playboy brother to the Countess of Grantham (Elizabeth McGovern). He'll apparently be causing trouble for the family, "upset the Grantham's apple cart" and prove a "maverick" and "free-spirited" figure.Giamatti is, of course, no stranger to costume drama - mini-series John Adams helped take his career to even higher heights just a couple of years back - but since he's currently playing the Rhino in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, we feel this qualifies as mixing it up.For the three people who still haven't watched it, Downton Abbey was created by Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park) and follows the aristocratic Crawley family, led by the Count of Grantham (Hugh Bonneville »

Wait until Mr. Carson's eyebrows see Paul Giamatti! Downton Abbey casting update

24 June 2013 6:28 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

One of our all time favorites, Paul Giamatti, will be in period garb once again as the former John Adams of HBO miniseries fame landed a plum role for PBS' "Downton Abbey." TVLine reports Giamatti is a guest star for Season 4, cast as Lady Cora's (Elizabeth McGovern) American brother Harold, who shows up with Shirley MacLaine, cast as Cora's mother, Martha Levinson. TV Line writes that Giamatti is Cora's "maverick, playboy brother" Harold who comes to Downton with his "free-spirit" ways and both he and Martha "upset the Grantham's apple cart." Perhaps he will bring some leftover "Sideways" Pinot Noir to the party. "Downton Abbey" premieres in the U.K. in September and in the U.S. Jan. 5, »
