Not much new programming from ABC to look forward to next season, as far as shows with black actors in lead/starring roles are concerned. Of course both Shonda Rhimes series - Grey's Anatomy and Scandal - are returning. But both are already in ABC's arsenal. Ashley Madekwe and Toks Olagundoye will return to their respective supporting roles in Revenge and The Neighbors, respectively. There's also Robert Wisdom in Nashville. One new series of note is Resurrection, which stars Omar Epps in the the top role, in the serial adaptation of author Jason Mott's debut novel, The Returned. Although it's a mid-season replacement, so don't expect to see it until sometime in early 2014. There are a couple of new shows with black actors in them, although not necessarily front-and-center. Isiah Whitlock Jr. is a member of the ensemble cast of Lucky 7, which revolves around seven employees of a service. »

Welcome back to Scandal, the finest slice of political drama on the TV, now with more fashion accessories, torture and twists and turns! It’s the finale of the show’s second season, aptly titled ‘White Hat’s Back On’ in a reflection of the season premiere ‘White Hat’s Off’, and with the big revelations that Billy Chambers, disgraced politician and murderer, is the Albatross and that David Rosen has betrayed the team, the team is scattered and scrambling to deal with wave after wave of problems. Let’s jump in, shall we?
Olivia and the team are running a handy little recap of the Billy Chambers reveal of last week, particularly the moment when Billy buys back his life from Charlie, the pair forming a friendship.

Recent Scandal guest star and Torchwood mainstay John Barrowman will host a reality contest show for ABC called Sing Your Face Off. According to EW, five celebrity ("celebrity") contestants will "take on the identity of an iconic music performer each week," attempting to impress judges Debbie Gibson and Darrell Hammond. The contestants are Jon Lovitz, Lisa Rinna, Sebastian Bach, NBA player Landry Fields, and Disney Channel actress China Anne McClain, so place your bets accordingly. As horrendous as this all sounds, maybe Syfo is the first step toward a musical special starring the cast of Scandal! Not a musical episode of the show, mind you, just a one-off special. Maybe with holiday songs? »

Kerry Washington stars on one of the hottest shows on TV. The second season finale of her critically acclaimed ABC political drama "Scandal" topped nine million viewers last week. Yet she sits in the seventh slot on our list of the potential six nominees for Best Drama Actress at the Emmys. If she can reap a bid, she is spoilt for choice when it comes to which single episode to submit to the jury that determines the winner. So, why is she not a frontrunner? Could it be racial bias? After all, Washington stars on the highest-rated series among the top tier of women vying for Emmy recognition. "Scandal" is generating lots of buzz, meriting the covers of Entertainment Weekly and TV Guide. And she got great reviews: Alan Sepinwall (Hitfix) said, "she owns every moment she's on camera, and is completely believable as someone who'd feel comfortable charging into »
"The Goodwin Games" features Beau Bridges as a father who wasn't much of a father to his kids. When he knew he was dying, he devised a complex game that would hopefully bring them together. More specifically, perhaps, it would award one of them his $23 million fortune.
The new Fox comedy premiere introduced the three siblings who would be reluctantly playing the game. First up was a customized version of Trivial Pursuit. All the questions were about the siblings. They revealed that they'd never been able to finish a game, and that proved the case again. As always, it ended in a huge fight.
After thinking they'd lost everything, the brothers were ready to go home. But daughter Chloe picked up on the morse code their father used in his final video to continue the game. And they agreed to play, and finish, the game. Doing so triggered the next step in the titular "Games. »

The BBC knows a good thing when they see it. Case in point, the wildly popular sci-fi series, Doctor Who has been officially renewed to come on back for an exciting 8th season. This isn’t the only news wrapped up in the long running series’ bag of goodies either. Buzz has also reached a fever pitch regarding the 50th Anniversary Special.
The extravaganza celebrating 50 years of Tardis is coming November 23rd to the BBC. It’s written by Steven Moffat and will feature Matt Smith, David Tennant, John Hurt, Jenna-Louise Coleman and Billie Piper among others. We reported on John Barrowman’s little 50th Anniversary Special snub just recently. Hey, things like that do happen. Lucky fans did catch Barrowman in a very cool Scandal guest appearance on ABC. He did a terrific job as a rival fixer to our lead, Olivia Pope. Obviously, showrunner Shonda Rimes is just »

Their dad, Beau Bridges, was a math professor who somehow managed to amass $23 million but will not bequeath it to his adult children until they learn to act like a family.
Foley plays Henry, a rather humorless sort, who "has a habit of keeping everything bottled up," he says. "He was the oldest son, as I am myself, of three siblings. He always felt he had to look after his siblings when his mother passed away and the family drifted apart, and they all come back together for his father's funeral."
After a few years of dramas, Foley was itching to do a comedy again. As well known as Foley has become on TV, he also spent lean years at a bunch of disparate jobs. »
The CW is holding both "Star-Crossed" and "The 100" in reserve for mid-season duty, but during the recent TV Upfronts they released a few photos from each show's pilot, and we have a look at them all right here.
Both series have a sci-fi tinge, but "The 100" especially, with its post-apocalyptic setting and the presence of Henry Ian Cusick (“Lost,” “Scandal”), has our attention for sure. And while "Star-Crossed" definitely seems to appeal to the more romantic types among us, it has a lot of familiar faces and could be worth watching for one or two episodes at least.
So while you're here, check out the photos below (top row from "The 100" and bottom from "Star-Crossed"). For more info visit "The 100" and "Star-Crossed" on Cwtv.com, and follow "The 100" (@cwthe100) and "Star-Crossed" (@CWStarCrossed) on Twitter.

Psych star James Roday says that the show is planning to remake an episode from an early season, something that no show has done before. I have to admit, it’s an unusual idea (are they retelling the story from a different perspective? is it a Gus Van Sant-style remake meant to cause meltdowns?
The BBC has ordered an eighth season of Doctor Who. In case you thought there was a chance they wouldn’t.
Looking at the disastrous ratings for American Idol‘s finale (down 40% from the previous finale) The Hollywood Reporter asks where things went wrong. One problem was that Idol‘s finale came a week earlier this year, making it compete against the season finales of The Big Bang Theory and Grey’s Anatomy as well as The Office‘s swan song. However, elements like The X-Factor-prompted exhaustion, the chemistry among this season’s judges »

In a recent episode of the ABC hit drama “Scandal,” Huck recalled the family he had before he was brainwashed by the government. Was this a forgotten past or just a figment of the character’s imagination. The man who plays Huck, Guillermo Diaz, admits, “I played it as if he did [have a family].” In a video chat with GoldDerby, he revealed that he did not find out about Huck’s past until he received the script: “It’s television. You don’t find out stuff til you are doing that episode” but “it kind of brings a spontaneity to it and an organic feel to it... Now I’m kind of starting to enjoy that I don’t know everything about my character... It kind of makes it more exciting to play.” On the impact this revelation will have on the future in of the show he says, “It definitely will »
