Question: I was wondering if you have found time to tune in or catch up on MTV's teen supernatural drama Teen Wolf or the comedy Awkward. I have been back watching both again recently and am officially hooked. With Teen Wolf being picked up for a 24-episode season next year [and Awkward for 20] and the laundry list of new scripted dramas on the horizon, what do you think of MTV scripted shows and are they in it for the long haul? — Sharday

Political Animals: What Went Wrong with Elaine Barrish

Sigourney Weaver

After I realized Political Animals wasn't a pet-themed reality show and was actually about an empowered female politician, I was beyond thrilled. Any miniseries — forgive me, "television event" — that could lure Oscar-nominee Sigourney Weaver to the small screen has to be great, right? Well, yes and no. Only about 20 minutes into the premiere and I began to realize how misguided I'd been. Political Animals isn't about a strong female in government. It's just another prime-time soap featuring a woman whose power is her sexuality and whose weakness is men (yawn).

Weaver stars as... read more

VIDEO: Will Political Animals' Exes Bud and Elaine Reconcile?

Ciaran Hinds and Sigourney Weaver

Her ex-husband has a Latin soap star on his arm, but when will Political Animals' Elaine start dating again?

Hopefully soon, Sigourney Weaver says.

"She's a sexual creature, that doesn't go away just because she's Secretary of State," Weaver tells TVGuide.com. "In fact, I'm hoping that because Elaine is divorced, I'll have an active dating life one of these seasons."

5 Reasons (Among Many) to Watch USA's Political Animals

Sigourney Weaver

Political Animals' lead character Elaine Barrish (Sigourney Weaver) appears to be strong, tough and full of confidence on the outside. But a few minutes into the USA series, viewers will learn that she's a lot more flawed and self-doubting than she looks.

"We present this woman so effective, so articulate, so passionate, so true to her moral compass and the flip side is she's much less confident in her personal life and as a mother," Weaver tells TVGuide.com. "She makes a lot of mistakes."

Review: Behold the Criminal and Political Animals

Sigourney Weaver, Bryan Cranston

In the latest head-on collision of top-notch Sunday night cable dramas, the return of TV's most chilling dark parable faces the arrival of an irresistible new potboiler. One you can take to the Emmy bank next week; the other you'll be tempted to take to the beach.

As the first half of the final season gets underway for AMC's masterpiece of intensity Breaking Bad (Sunday, 10/9c), mensch-turned-mastermind Walter White (three-time Emmy winner Bryan Cranston) escalates his criminal ways, and a man who once inspired pity now leaves even loved ones quaking in fear... read more

On the Set: Uncovering the Secrets of Political Animals

Political Animals

Usually, the secretary of state keeps company with foreign dignitaries in exotic, far-flung locales, not Teamsters in the shell of a business park by the Philadelphia International Airport. Then again, this Madame Secretary has saved the planet from some really illegal aliens before taking office, so who are we to judge?

As Political Animals' former First Lady-turned-Secretary of State Elaine Barrish Hammond, Sigourney Weaver is back in badass form, only on a civic-duty level rather than a sci-fi one. And although she has three names and a philandering ex-husband, Elaine is not based on you-know-who. "I had to get over the slight feeling of, 'Oh, it's Hillary,' which she really isn't," says Weaver, citing inspiration from countless women in power, including a childhood headmistress and... read more
