Mysteries of Laura Adds Boardwalk Alum Meg Steedle as Series Regular

10 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

NBC’s The Mysteries of Laura has added Boardwalk Empire alum Meg Steedle as a series regular, TVLine has confirmed.

Steedle will make her debut in Episode 15 as Francesca “Frankie” Pulaski, a young detective who scored so high on her detective exam that she was initially assigned to headquarters at One Police Plaza — a placement that proved to be underwhelming for her.

When she joins the 2nd Precinct, Frankie’s sunny demeanor and optimism initially gets her pegged as naive and impressionable, though Laura will discover that the noob is using that disposition to conceal a dark secret.

“Now is Not the End”

Peggy is contacted by old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper, Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”) when he is framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons and can trust no one else. To help Peggy clear Stark’s name, he insists his butler, Edwin Jarvis, be at her beck and call–whether she likes it or not. But the risk is great: If caught, Agent Carter could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison…or worse.

Bridge and Tunnel

Howard Stark’s deadliest weapon has fallen into enemy hands, and only Agent Carter can recover it. »

HBO has officially placed a series order for Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger's long-in-the-works project about a New York City record executive navigating the changing musical landscape of the 1970s, Collider reports. The network has also revealed the show's cast and their respective roles.

Den Of Geek's top TV episodes of 2014

18 December 2014 1:59 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Doctor Who, Sherlock, Game Of Thrones and more... As nominated by Den Of Geek writers, here are our favourite TV episodes of 2014

Whatever else it's brought with it, 2014 has been an exemplary year for television. There's so much good stuff around that keeping on top of it has become a job of work. How many of us have started silently dreading hearing enthused recommendations from pals about new series? Who else has developed a nervous tick whenever they hear the words "Have you been watching...". There's simply Too. Much. TV.

Too much, however, is better than not enough. Too much enables debate, and better than that, it enables the ultimate geek pursuit: list-making. A fortnight ago, we asked our writers to nominate their favourite television episodes of the year and have been busily collating their votes and happily clicking Excel buttons ever since.

Here are the results: Den Of Geek »

'Serial' Finale Is Here, and We're Dream Casting If the Podcast Were a Movie!

18 December 2014 1:15 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Now that the wildly popular podcast Serial has come to a close, we're ready to watch the murder mystery unfold on the big screen -- and we know just who would play Jay, Sarah Koenig, Adnan Syed, Hae Min Lee and of course, Mr. S.

Photos: The 10 Biggest Breakout Stars of 2014

If you're unfamiliar with the true crime podcast that draws over 1 million listeners per week and is put on by the This American Life producers, Serial reexamines the 1999 murder of an 18-year-old Baltimore high school senior named Hae Min Lee.

Not long before Lee went missing, she had broken up with her boyfriend, then-17-year-old Adnan Syed, an honors student of the Muslim faith who was later tried and convicted for killing her. Adnan is now 33 and serving a life sentence for Hae's murder, but insists in a series of telephone interviews with producer Sarah Koenig that he's innocent.

Person of Interest Recap: Inside the Mind of a Fallen God

16 December 2014 8:44 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

CBS’ Person of Interest kicked off a winter hiatus-bridging “trilogy” with a meeting of the minds.

Make that, a meeting of the minds.

Samaritan was hot for a sit-down with The Machine, but first had to get Her attention. To that end, Samaritan erased crime from New York City for a day, getting to POIs before Finch’s team could as well as orchestrating the discovery and arrest of assorted elusive ne’er-do-wells.

When that gesture failed to get Root, as Her proxy, to sign off on a meeting, Samaritan flipped the script and brought chaos (you know, business as usual) to New York City, »

HBO TV Show Ratings (updated 12/16/14)

16 December 2014 4:04 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

While HBO execs aren't tied to the ratings like regular commercial channels, they have to air programs that will keep viewers subscribed. Which of their shows will be cancelled or renewed? We'll have to wait and see.

Scripted HBO shows listed: Boardwalk Empire, The Comeback, Eastbound & Down, Game of Thrones, Getting On, Girls, Hello Ladies, Jonah from Tonga, The Leftovers, Looking, The Newsroom, Silicon Valley, True Blood, True Detective, and Veep.

Last update: Most recent ratings for The Comeback, Getting On, and The Newsroom added.

There's lots of data that HBO execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series. The ratings for initial airings don't play as large a role as they do on commercial stations but they are still an indication of how popular a show is. Here's an updated listing of HBO's recent/current »

Digital Spy's best TV shows of the year 2014: 20-16

16 December 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

2014 was a strong year for television, both at home and abroad, but now is the time to narrow down our favourites to only the choicest cuts.

These are Digital Spy's best TV shows for 2014 - continuing today with 20-16. Check back tomorrow for 15-11.

Digital Spy's best TV shows of the year 2014: 25-21

20. House of Cards

It may not have quite hit the highs of the first season - perhaps lacking a little of the heart provided by Corey Stoll's tragic Peter Russo last year - but House of Cards was still a captivating watch in 2014. Much has been made of the Netflix 'binge-watch' culture, but not every show could hold the viewer's attention across 13 straight episodes - this is one.

Its chief selling point remains Kevin Spacey's turn as the malevolent, magnificent Francis 'Frank' Underwood - by turns »

TV Shows We Can't Wait for in 2015

16 December 2014 12:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If it were up to us, every season would be TV season. No more 10, 16, or 22-episode batches at a time - just 52 blissful weeks of new content from our favorite shows. But, alas, that's not how it works. We can pretend that the wait just makes us appreciate the shows more when they air, but in this world of instant gratification it really just makes us impatient. Here are 15 shows we're particularly excited/impatient/desperate to see return or premiere in 2015.

"The Walking Dead"

The first season of "The Walking Dead" only had six episodes, so we should be grateful to get eight episodes of Season 5 from October-November 2014 and eight more again when Twd returns from February-March. Plus, there's a "companion series" coming at some point in 2015 as well. And we are grateful - when we're not whining about the wait. How will Maggie Greene, Daryl Dixon and company react »

The 10 Best TV Dramas of 2014

15 December 2014 1:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Blame “True Detective,” in part, which helped kick off 2014 in rousing fashion, but the blurred line between “limited series” and just plain old series has complicated the definition of a “drama.” But for the purposes of a year-end list, the two can coexist, encompassing any program presented on an episodic basis, even if the story offered closure.

By that measure, both “True Detective” and “Fargo” — the latter categorized as a miniseries for Emmy balloting — as well as Starz’s “The Missing” can join an array of dramas that, frankly, could easily fill a “top 20” list. But who on Earth has time to click through that?

Obviously, reducing the current age of drama to an arbitrary tally is going to overlook several heavy hitters, and the roster underwent considerable tinkering right down till the end. Series like “The Walking Dead,” “Mad Men” and “Downton Abbey” – -which all would have qualified in the past –- didn’t, »

The year in TV: The rise of single-director television seasons

15 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Clive Owen and Michael Angarano in The Knick

From the apparent death of the romantic sitcom to the resurgence of superhero shows, there have been a lot of developments in television over the year. But if there is one trend that has defined 2014 in television, it has been the migration of directors to the small screen for season-long projects. While not an idea that’s unique to the year, as the Jane Campion-helmed first season of Top of the Lake signalled the trend in 2013, this year’s television firmly established the migration as something more than a novelty.

Of course, big name directors hopping in for an episode or two of shows they are executive producers on is nothing new. Martin Scorsese’s direction in the pilot no doubt convinced some people to give Boardwalk Empire a chance, as did Neil Marshall’s work on the pilot of Constantine »

New poster for Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice

14 December 2014 1:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Just days after the release of the final trailer [which you can watch here], a new poster has arrived online for Inherent Vice, director Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel of the same name…

When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a looney bin…well, easy for her to say. It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another of those words going around at the moment, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s being way too overused – except this one usually leads to trouble. With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, »

30 Best TV Series of 2014

12 December 2014 9:27 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

10. The Leftovers

There have been a number of new and returning shows that have enthralled, horrified, excited, and caused numerous other emotional reactions among the viewing public. However no show, new or old, has left an impression as deep as that of HBO’s The Leftovers. While the series’ 10 episode first season ended its run in early September, its impact has lasted much longer, making it a strong entry in the list of the best shows of 2014.

The key strength of The Leftovers is its seeming disinterest in what caused the event at the center of the show. The series’ decision to focus on the effect rather than the cause not only sets it apart from nearly everything else on television, it also helps develop the show’s wide swath of characters. In addition, putting the disastrous event as the backdrop, rather than at the forefront, allows the audience to »

Ahead of its release next week, Paramount Pictures has dropped a new poster for director Rupert Wyatt’s (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) remake of the 1974 crime drama The Gambler

See Also: Read our review of The Gambler here

Jim Bennett (Academy Award-nominee Mark Wahlberg) is a risk taker. Both an English professor and a high-stakes gambler, Bennett bets it all when he borrows from a gangster (Michael Kenneth Williams) and offers his own life as collateral. Always one step ahead, Bennett pits his creditor against the operator of a gambling ring (Alvin Ing) and leaves his dysfunctional relationship with his wealthy mother (Academy Award-winner Jessica Lange) in his wake. He plays both sides, immersing himself in an illicit, underground world while garnering the attention of Frank (John Goodman), a loan shark with a paternal interest in Bennett’s future. As his relationship with a student (Brie Larson) deepens, »

Watch Jimmy Fallon and Mark Wahlberg Play “Slapjack” On The Tonight Show

11 December 2014 1:52 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Just when we think it can’t get any better than Box of Lies and Lip Sync Battle, Jimmy Fallon goes and introduces another amazing game to play with his guests on The Tonight Show. On last night’s show, Fallon went up against Mark Wahlberg in a game of “Slapjack,” and it was pretty spectacular. As you can see in the video below, Slapjack is an absolutely ridiculous version of Blackjack, in which whoever wins gets to slap their opponent across the face with a giant prosthetic hand. As I said, it’s absolutely ridiculous, but it’s also really, really funny, especially thanks to the slow-mo replay that The Tonight Show had for each time either Wahlberg or Fallon got slapped. Wahlberg was on The Tonight Show last night to promote his new movie The Gambler, which co-stars American Horror Story‘s Jessica Lange, Boardwalk Empire‘s Michael Kenneth Williams (R. »
