Aml Ameen and Brittany Snow
At Harriet's Law & Fine Shoes, if the shoe fits, wear it. And if it doesn't, you lose two actors.
Brittany Snow and Aml Ameen won't be clocking in when Harry's Law returns for its second season on NBC, TVLine reports.
Doctor Who, Matt Smith
Rejoice! The BBC has ordered 14 new episodes of Doctor Who starring Matt Smith, The Guardian reports. But only the Time Lord may know when they'll air.
It's not clear exactly when the episodes will be scheduled, but a "good chunk" of them will air in 2012 , a BBC spokesman told the paper. "The new commission is a big commitment, not many other shows have such a commitment so far in advance. We do not know yet how many will air in 2012," the spokesman said.
Sean Young, Michael Lohan and Bai Ling
Actress Sean Young, Hollywood dad Michael Lohan, and baseball star Dwight "Doc" Gooden are among the famous patients who will join Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew for Season 5, VH1 announced Tuesday.
The new season, which premieres Sunday, June 26 at 9/8c, also features Miss Long Island Lolita herself Amy Fisher, Guns 'N' Roses drummer Steven Adler (his second time on the show), actress Bai Ling, Baywatch actor Jeremy Jackson and Survivor castaway Jessica "Sugar" Kiper.
With only two episodes of Game of Thrones to go, the action really came to a head with the absence of The Hand (see what we did there?) on Sunday's episode. Yes, winter is coming, but the battle has already begun at King's Landing. Who will survive? Let's take a look at "The Pointy End" for clues.
TVGuide.com's Hanh Nguyen is an avid scripted-TV watcher, a horror-avoider and someone who's read George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series, on which HBO's Game of Thrones is based. Colleague Rich Juzwiak rarely watches scripted TV, is a gorehound and became alerted to Martin's existence just recently, as he started researching this new swords-and-sandals (well, boots) series. He knows nothing of these sorcerers (if that is indeed what they are), while Hanh is something of an expert (read: fantasy/sci-fi nerd). Each week, he'll try to make sense of this crazy new show by enlisting Hanh's expertise. It may turn out to be a test of tolerance: in this case, the Games begin after the TV is off.
Joe Bastianach knows the culinary world. Not only is he a judge on Fox's MasterChef — which returns for a second season on Monday at 8/7c — he operates three wineries in Italy and 18 restaurants across the country with business partner-celebrity chef Mario Batali. But Bastianich isn't only about food. If necessary, he claims he could make a living by singing for his supper.
The restauranteur can carry a tune and is drawn to shows that feature singing like Glee. "Those kids are fantastic," he tells TVGuide.com. "I love it because I sing, so I sing along with them." As for fellow Fox reality show American Idol, he boasts, "I'd go on there and win if I wasn't so damn old."
Game of Thrones, Maisie Williams
The child characters on Game of Thrones have had their share of troubles and heartache, but on Sunday's episode, titled "The Pointy End," Arya is the first of Ned Stark's children to show how to survive the deadly game the adults are playing.
Spoilers! If you haven't watched Episode 8, "The Pointy End," yet, it's best not to read further.
At only 11 years old, Arya (Maisie Williams) is forced to kill a stable boy when she discovers that the Red Keep is now swarming with enemies following her father's capture. "It was really stressful," Williams tells TVGuide.com. "But it was a big scene to shoot because it was Arya's first kill, the first of many [to come]."
Game of Thrones, Maisie Williams
Living in the fantasy world of HBO's Game of Thrones can be brutal, especially on the children.
Just ask newcomer Maisie Williams who plays 11-year-old Arya Stark. It's not easy being a Stark family member these days. In the season premiere, Arya's younger brother Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) witnessed his first beheading and later took a crippling tumble out of a tower window.
