Friday Night Lights panel, ATX Festival
Friday Night Lights may be long over but many of the cast reunited at the ATX Television Festival over the weekend in celebration of the beloved show, to spill some fun secrets and share some heartwarming memories from the five seasons.
Connie Britton and Charles Esten
Nashville hunk Deacon Claybourne is about to be hit with the biggest bombshell of his life: Maddie is his daughter.
Just as Rayna (Connie Britton) and Deacon (Charles Esten) finally got back together, Rayna's daughter Maddie (Lennon Stella) found documents last week proving that Deacon, not Teddy (Eric Close), is her biological father. On Wednesday's finale (10/9c, ABC), Maddie shows up at Deacon's door with the news. How does Deacon react? As expected, not so well.
ABC has renewed 11 series, including vet Grey's Anatomy, which will enter its 10th season, and freshman series Nashville. However, the network also canceled Happy Endings, Body of Proof, Red Widow, Malibu Country and How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life).
Don't you hate when this sort of thing happens? Country diva frenemies Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) and Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) both get nominated for CMA Awards on ABC's Nashville (Wednesday, 10/9c) — oh who am I kidding, we love when these things happen.
You can count star Connie Britton among those clamoring for a Friday Night Lights movie.
"I would love it to happen," Britton told E! News at the White House Correspondents' Dinner over the weekend. "I'm a big supporter of it happening."
Nashville has landed a major country star for its season finale — and we're not talking about Rayna James.
Brad Paisley will appear as himself in the finale, TVGuide.com has confirmed. As...
ABC's Nashville was one of the most critically acclaimed new shows of the season, and yet its future remains on the bubble.
Did the initial glitz, glamour and Southern charm of Music City lose its appeal for some viewers? Was the back-and-forth bickering between country legend Rayna (Connie Britton) and young, hot starlet Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) tiresome? Are there just too many characters with competing story lines? And is there a need for all the shady politics?
James Roday, Dule Hill
It's all screams and giggles — the screams courtesy of an insistent shrieking doorbell, while the giggles come with the territory — as USA Network's long-running hoot-dunit Psych marks its 100th episode (Wednesday, 10/9c) with a shamelessly wacky murder mystery set in a spooky mansion during a thunderous storm. It's a dark and silly night, indeed, as this Clue-inspired romp gathers colorful characters as suspects (including Lesley Ann Warren as a stuttering Miss Scarlett), while Shawn and Gus panic and mug as usual, running everyone in circles before solving the crime. Which is where the audience comes in this week, as the show goes interactive, urging fans to help decide the outcome by voting live during the episode on psych.usanetwork.com and Twitter.
Sam Palladio, Clare Bowen
Scarlett (Clare Bowen) and Gunnar (Sam Palladio) may have taken their relationship to the next level when they slept together on Nashville, but Scunnar fans might want to hold off on celebrating. The new couple's honeymoon period may be short-lived, according to Palladio.
That's not entirely surprising, given the fact that the event that immediately preceded their hookup was Gunnar learning that his brother had been murdered. But when Nashville returns from a month-long hiatus Wednesday (10/9c, ABC), there's another source of complications for Scarlett and Gunnar: trying to balance their new romantic relationship with their professional songwriting partnership. It's a classic story of co-ed songwriting duos, and the pair may be headed for a "Fleetwood Mac sort of thing," Palladio admits.
