Question: Any new scoop on upcoming episodes of Chicago Fire?? —Alex
Ausiello: Just so you’re aware, Alex, double the question marks does not automatically result in double the scoop. But since I’m feeling generous, let’s give you two tidbits on which to chew. First, the tide may be turning for Severide — at least in the love department. “We have some things coming up romance-wise for him,” executive producer Matt Olmstead teases. On a second (and possibly related) note, »
Thomas and Bays will write and executive-produce the half-hour comedy New York Mythological, which has landed at CBS, our sister site Deadline reports.

The potential series revolves around a Midwestern girl who moves to Manhattan and experiences firsthand the magic of the city. It marks the duo’s first writing effort since Himym went off the air in March 2014.
Sunday’s Quantico simultaneously gave terrorism suspect Alex a tiny sliver of hope — though she doesn’t know it yet — and put her in the most precarious situation we’ve seen so far.
The hour saw Caleb find (and then, at the behest of his father, bury) the first evidence supporting Agent Parrish’s innocence in the Grand Central bombing. And later, realizing that the feds were closing in after last week’s shootout in Queens, Alex tricked an injured Ryan into boarding a helicopter to safety, then walked into FBI Central to turn herself in.

Look sharp, NATs: Your next assignment is a crucial one.
If you’ve been following ABC’s Quantico, you know thatthe person responsible for blowing up New York’s Grand Central Terminal is somehow connected to recent graduates of the FBI academy— and that rookie Agent Alex Parrish is Suspect Number 1, though she claims she’s being framed.
As the Sunday-night drama has made us very aware, it’s often very hard to distinguish between truth and lies. And when you consider that every member of Alex’s class (including »
FilmBuff and Orion Releasing have acquired worldwide rights to director Charles Hood’s romantic comedy “Night Owls,” which was a hit at this year’s SXSW festival, it was announced Thursday.

After Madeline takes a bottle of sleeping pills, Kevin is forced to keep her awake all night. »

Quantico has recruited Eliza Coupe for a new role on the freshman drama. As TVLine first reported, the Happy Endings alum will play Hannah Wyland, an agent who “graduated from the FBI academy seven years ago.” Per TVLine’s description of the character, Hannah’s “ambition, combined with her looks and her confidence, has rocketed her past her competition in the intervening years ‘She can turn on the soap, sex and romance, but at heart she’s a hardcore career agent with countless notches in her belt.'” Coupe will make her Quantico debut in Episode 10, which is slated to air sometime early in 2016. Her role reportedly comes with a series-regular option, so there’s a good chance that we could be seeing a lot more of Hannah in future Quantico episodes. In addition to her starring role on Happy Endings, Coupe’s past TV credits include numerous comedies, such as Scrubs, »

TV Line reports Happy Endings alum Eliza Coupe, most recently of The Mindy Project and Casual, is headed to Quantico for a story arc in 2016 ... before immediately going back to sitcoms. Right? She's gotta. Just because we didn't give Happy Endings or Benched the love they deserved doesn't mean we have to lose one of our best comedic actresses to network dramas. Oh, lord, the character summary describes her as "a hardcore career agent with countless notches in her belt." That is the most jokeless-sounding role there is! Okay, calm down. She'll probably get to deliver some witty bon mots at least. Maybe some jokes about ... uh, guns maybe? Betrayal? Sh ... shooting? »

Coupe’s Hannah Wyland graduated from the FBI academy seven years ago. Her ambition, combined with her looks and her confidence, has rocketed her past her competition in the intervening years. And then there’s this juicy bit, direct from the official character description: “She can turn on the soap, sex and romance, but at heart she’s a hardcore career agent with countless notches in her belt”?

If you’ve craved more All Hallows’ Eve adventures since the end credits rolled in Michael Dougherty's 2007 holiday horror anthology, then you're in for a big Halloween treat from Legendary Comics via their new graphic novel, Trick 'r Treat: Days of the Dead.
Set around October 31st throughout the centuries, Days of the Dead features four macabre tales in which the tricks can be treacherous, but the treats are sweeter than any king-sized candy bar. The stories are collectively penned by Dougherty, Todd Casey, Zach Shields, and Marc Andreyko, and they leave a mark almost as indelible as the tales told onscreen in the Trick 'r Treat film—offering a good number of initial scares and leaving plenty of frightful food for thought to dig into after the last page is turned.

The Ranch was created by Don Reo and Jim Patterson, and is set on a Colorado spread, with Colt Bennett (Kutcher) returning home after a brief semi-pro football career to run the family business with his brother Jimmy (Danny Masterson).

Can you make an entire sitcom out of the fact that John Stamos looks really, really good for a man in his 50s? As it turns out, yes. With Daniel Chun (“The Office,” “Hello Ladies” and “Happy Endings”) penning a quick-witted script, “Grandfathered” subverts every hokey cliche that it nearly crashes into by maintaining a savvy self-awareness. Stamos plays Jimmy Martino, a successful Los Angeles restaurateur who’s a fixture in the dining room at Jimmy’s every night, delivering the same flattering line to every female who walks through the door. He’s always found at the center of a glamorous coterie of. »

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.
There’s a pervading sweetness running throughout Fox’s new sitcom Grandfathered, premiering alongside The Grinder this fall. Although both shows feature a somewhat cliche structure that’s largely the same, in reverse – Rob Lowe returning to his family in The Grinder, John Stamos discovering he even has one in Grandfathered – where this show prevails slightly over Lowe’s sitcom is in two important areas. One: it’s funny. Two: I wouldn’t mind spending a few weeks getting to know these characters more. Both facts run right in the face of the show’s stock playboy-settles-down plot arc, which lets its characters move around and have fun thanks to its simplicity, unlike The Grinder‘s stifling, largely humorless stranglehold over nearly everyone on screen.
The show opens with Jimmy Martino (John Stamos) making the rounds at Jimmy’s, the local fancy restaurant he owns and operates. »
