Ok, ABC’s reality singing competition is putting my math skills to good use. (That hinky “percentage of people who vote yes” + “7% for each judge” metric does occasionally tickle the brain.)

Ausiello: I choose Couple No. 2, though as far as Shonda Rhimes is concerned, their romantic status is not Alex’s No. 1 priority as the new season opens, picking up barely a day later. “Alex and Joe are in an interesting place — though I don’t know if I would talk about them in terms of their relationship just yet, »

The growing intersection between Hollywood and the fashion industry was evident on July 19 as TV academy members, design students and all out fashionistas came together at downtown Los Angeles’ Fashion Institute of Design and & Merchandising for the opening of the school and the Academy’s annual Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design exhibit.
The costume design series and miniseries-movie Emmy categories tend to focus on period and fantasy programs — and the event itself was also was a chance to celebrate “Mad Men’s” Janie Bryant and “Once Upon a Time’s” Eduardo Castro on their Emmy nominations — but costume designer Mary Rose, who curated the showcase, said the items she chose to put on display were more about programs she liked.
“I am not just showing what the nominations did this year … enough is enough,” said Rose. “There are a lot of things that are much more interesting and meaningful … This year’s nominees, »

What doesn’t kill Castle stands to make “Caskett” stronger. That’s the message from the ABC series’ new showrunner, David Amann, and creator Andrew W. Marlowe, both of whom spoke with TVLine Tuesday at a Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour soiree.
For starters, and to put a final nail in any scurrilous speculation, Amann was not promoted to showrunner in the name of “undoing” any perceived problems with the May finale, which left bride Beckett discovering the fiery wreckage of her groom’s car.

There are five directors, each charged with helming two episodes each in season 5. Back in the mix this year: David Nutter, who directed the incredible “The Rains of Castamere” episode (aka The Red Wedding) in season 3.

According to a recent report from TV Line, the Person Of Interest season 4 peeps have brought on actress, Cara Buono (left), to portray a recurring femme fatale character. Her character is described as being "uniquely qualified to navigate next season’s “new world order,” in which Samaritan is online and all-seeing, forcing Reese, Finch and the rest of Team Machine to lay low using unimpeachable aliases." Cara Buono's acting credits include roles in Mad Men, guest spots on Elementary, The Good Wife, The Carrie Diaries, Castle ,and Brothers & Sisters.

Four days ago, we brought you news of Fox’s 2014-15 fall television line-up, which included such highly-anticipated shows as Gotham and Gracepoint, and now ABC has thrown its hat into the ring by releasing its own fall schedule. Though I don’t think any of us would argue that ABC has a single show with as much advance buzz as Gotham, there are still some promising programs in the mix this year, despite the network’s overabundance of half-hour comedies.
Personally, I’m most interested to see How to Get Away with Murder, which will bring two-time Oscar nominee Viola Davis to the small screen under the watch of Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes. The plot, about a legal professor in Philadelphia who becomes wrapped up along with her students in a murder plot, sounds more serialized than most, and Davis is a tremendously talented actress, so unless How to »

ABC is sticking to a fairly traditional fall rollout, announcing premiere-week returns on Tuesday for top shows like “Modern Family,” “Scandal” and “Once Upon a Time” while kicking off “Dancing With the Stars” a bit early and giving new drama “Forever” a special Monday launch.
“Dancing” kicks off the Alphabet’s fall with a Sept. 15 bow (one week before the start of the season) that will enable it to avoid going head-to-head with the premieres of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory,” NBC’s “The Voice” and Fox’s “Gotham.”
One week later, “Dancing With the Stars” is followed by a special sneak preview episode of new drama “Forever,” starring Ioan Gruffudd as an immortal crime-solver. It will go up against the season premiere of NBC’s “The Blacklist” and the season finale of CBS’ “Under the Dome.” “Castle” makes its return on Sept. 29.
“Forever” then bows in its regular Tuesday 10 o’clock the next night. »
