The roar of Norman Reedus's motorcycle engine cuts through the tranquil Georgia field housing The Walking Dead's production trailers. Even though the actor is not listed on today's call sheet — he doesn't even appear in the episode being shot — he just can't stay away from his on-screen family.
Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr.
Can American Idol be saved? After losing a quarter of its audience last season, the Fox competition series is hitting the reset button for its 13th cycle, premiering in January. First up: a judging panel featuring Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. "Last season, we knew what could happen when the chemistry was bad," says new executive producer Per Blankens, who previously helmed the Swedish version of Idol. "So we decided to get three people who really could enjoy each other's company." The panel is getting along so well that they're even taking their lunch breaks together, something producers admit never happened last year. "Nobody's above the other," adds exec producer Trish Kinane. "There's none of that rivalry going on."
The battle between cops and gangsters heats up in this brand new trailer for TNT's Mob City (premiering Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 9/8c). Acclaimed Walking Dead executive producer/director Frank Darabont explores the world of 1940's Los Angeles in this noir thriller, which also stars Dead alums Jon Bernthal and Jeffrey DeMunn. The series focuses on real-life accounts of the City of Angel's violent criminal underworld, featuring infamous mob figures such as Mickey Cohen and Bugsy Siegel. And judging by the number of bullet-ridden bodies and bloodied faces in the trailer, the show pulls no punches with its realism.
Lou Diamond Phillips, Robert Forster

Ironside and Holly (Spencer Grammer) investigate a case-within-a-case when they discover a teenage witness to the slashing went missing as a child. Their search takes them to the heart of the New York City's Greenwich Village where Ironside finds himself in the middle of a heated exchange.
In order to enter Andrew Lincoln's trailer on the Senoia, Georgia, set of The Walking Dead, you must first step on a Duck Dynasty welcome mat — not exactly the greeting you'd expect from the 40-year-old British graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. "[Costar] Norman [Reedus] gave it to me because...
The Mindy Project
Happy Endings alum Adam Pally joins the Mindy Project practice on Oct. 1 as Peter Prentiss, a new ob-gyn whom executive producer Jack Burditt describes as "a frat guy from Dartmouth who brings a whole new energy to the workplace."
Pally will stick around for the rest of Season 2 — he was promoted to series regular earlier this month, weeks before his episodes started airing. Now that's a happy ending!
