The British period drama’s delayed airdate in the States — as well as fellow Brit import “Sherlock” — tinted the discussion on Ken Burns’ upcoming 14-hour miniseries “The Roosevelts,” which will be streamed in its entirety the day after its September 14 premiere.

“Because ['The Roosevelts'] is such a big and important series … we’ve found that by offering it up in multiple places, people could catch up and come in and out of the broadcast so that the broadcast audience, rather than being impacted negatively, is impacted positively because the people who miss an episode or two can catch up and come back into the series,” she said, adding, “I’m waiting for someone to ask now why don’t you do that with ‘Downton’?

Graham Norton: What's the BAFTA host's favourite TV?

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

It's that time of year again - on Sunday, the brightest and best from the world of television will get honoured at the grand BAFTAs ceremony. And there to guide everyone through it (and mock them a little bit, probably) will be none other than Graham Norton. But what does he think about the current state of television? Read on to find out which show makes him cry, which one makes him laugh, and what he thinks will win the Audience Award...

Graham on... who will win the Audience Award

"Who will win? Oh, that is difficult. They're all very good - it's a very good list. Educating Yorkshire I think provided one of the standout moments of the year, really, with the stuttering boy. That was just really special. That's when you just want to hug your television. It's great that we all got to share in that - it was brilliant. »

Looking for another reason to check out Showtime's "Penny Dreadful" this weekend? If you haven't watched the first episode yet, here's a pretty cool incentive: a look at Victorian London through innovative window displays in New York and Los Angeles!

The displays kicked off on May 5th and run through May 18th exclusively at 21st St. and Broadway in NYC and at 7024 Hollywood Blvd. (the Roosevelt Hotel) in La.

Utilizing groundbreaking Lidar laser technology, windows at those locations have been covered with "live vinyl" (Led panels backlighting printed vinyl) to produce an immersive environment that reflects the world of the new Showtime original series "Penny Dreadful."

This half-world is inhabited by characters from the series brought to life by depth-measuring lasers precise enough to capture 50 pedestrians at a time. Characters from the Victorian London period, along with elements from "Penny Dreadful" (wolves, bats, spiders, etc.), were created using individualized artificial intelligence, »
