Jack is back! Please spoil the return of 24! — David
Although he's been on the lam for four years, Jack comes out of hiding to stop the assassination of the U.S. president in London. And as you might guess, he's promptly captured the minute he shows his face. But Jack's not that rusty. In fact, there's a very specific reason Jack allows himself to get caught — and it involves a familiar face. Unfortunately, Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski), a Bauer-esque CIA operative looking to prove her worth, wastes little time standing in the way of the blessed reunion. Say it with me: Dammit!
Please tell me Cobie Smulders is going to stay on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. full-time! — Cara

Amazon is throwing the lid off TV's pilot process. As it looks to join rival Netflix in the original series game, the online retailer has just posted pilot episodes of six sitcoms, two animated comedies and six children's cartoons. Amazon will then gauge audience reaction before making series orders.
Pilots are usually screened in network boardrooms and closed-door focus groups. But in an extensive interview with TV Guide Magazine, Amazon Studios director Roy Price says he wanted to make the service's selection process transparent for U.S., U.K. and (soon) Germany audiences...
Nigel Lythgoe, the executive producer behind American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance, is partnering with MGM Television to create a scripted series based on the 1980 film (and later TV show) Fame, Deadline reports.
Natasha Lyonne is the first to admit she hasn't always been a saint.
The actress, best known for films such as American Pie, But I'm a Cheerleader and Slums of Beverly Hills, is also well-known for her personal struggles behind the camera, including her DUI in 2001 and a 2006 stint at a drug and alcohol treatment center. Lyonne says she's been able to use those latter experiences while playing a...
Megan Mullally, Kelsey Grammer
Fame is looking good the second time around for Kelsey Grammer, Megan Mullally and Debbie Allen.
The trio, along with Bebe Neuwirth and Charles S. Dutton, has been tapped to star in the remake of the 1980 classic as ...
Jason Alexander (who got his start as a Broadway hoofer) recently seized the reigns of Los Angeles' Reprise! theater series. For his first offering, he's thinking of starring in a reading of The Odd Couple opposite Martin Short. "I want to do an absolute crowd-pleaser," Alexander told Playbill.com (which must be why he nixed the idea of a Bob Patterson adaptation).... A musicalization of 9 to 5 will enjoy a star-studded reading later this month, as West Wing's Allison Janney channels Lily Tomlin and Bebe Neuwirth takes on Roz, the office suck-up. The Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton and Dabney Coleman roles will be filled by stage vets Stephanie J. Block (Pirate Queen), Megan Hilty (Wicked) and Marc Kudisch....
