It's a provocative premise: In Fox's Lone Star, Bob Allen has been raised a Texas con man, grifting through life until he falls in love for real — twice. Now he wants to go straight, without losing either woman, or the worlds they live in (respectively, an oil-rich dynasty in Houston, and a tight-knit small town in Midland.)

Following someone leading a double life on TV can be done — see: Don Draper, Dexter, Nurse Jackie — but it can be tricky. Will Lone Star be a 22-episode tease? Will his ruse never fall apart? Will his wives never meet? And if they do, does the show morph into something else? Series star James Wolk talks to TVGuide.com about taking on his first major role (and changing his professional name to go with it), playing the sociopath you root for, and what he thinks of the show's super-sexy ad campaign. ...
No news wasn't good news for the press gathered at Fox's TCA day on Monday, with everyone hoping in vain for some definitive word on who'll be judging (or not) on American Idol next season. No deals, so no deal, said the side-stepping Fox execs.
Who needs judges? Let us be the judge—of Fox's new fall programming, which is the main reason summer TCA exists, after all. The good news: Fox is launching only three new shows, and one is my favorite new drama of the season and one my favorite new comedy...
There are plenty of protagonists with secret lives on TV these days, but eventually the jig is up. Betty Draper knows about Dick Whitman. Nurse Jackie's husband and Walter White's wife have found out about their spouses' dealings with drugs. So how long will we have to wait before the double life of Robert/Bob Allen, the con man at the center of Fox's new family drama Lone Star, is discovered?
It's no spoiler to say that by the end of the first episode, several characters are already suspicious of Robert/Bob's comings and goings.

Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight has signed on to his first TV series lead in Fox's drama pilot Midland, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Midland follows a con artist (Jimmy Wolk) who juggles two lives in different Texas cities with two women (Adrianne Palicki, Eloise Mumford). But one of the women (Palicki) happens to be ...
It's really a shame that this was the final episode of the season for The Class. I really think it has hit its stride now. It seems like the writers have finally found the pairings that work and have been able to mix a slight bit of drama into the comedy (and do it well). I've been consistently entertained throughout the last month or two. Personally, I'm disappointed it's going to leave the lineup. Some good laughs before the 24 bloodbath have been good for my Monday nights. We all talk a lot in this blog about the missing people from the show. Holly and Fern didn't show up again. Aaron finally came back, though that certainly could have been a hair double that Kyle was hugging at the end. The one person that never gets mentioned, however, is Penny! I completely forgot about Yonk's daughter. I probably said this the first time she showed up, too, but what did Yonk previously marry to produce that? I'm glad she's not full time as she's a one-joke, evil eating machine, but once every...
