A deluxe if derivative wallow in crime awaits viewers of TNT's Mob City (Wednesday, 9/8c) a six-hour primer in film noir attitude from The Walking Dead's Frank Darabont that's as sleek as the brilliantine in "fixer" Milo Ventimiglia's impeccably styled hair.

Oliver Queen is getting some super help next month on Arrow — and we've got an early look!
The Dec. 4 episode of The CW drama, titled "The Scientist," will feature the debut of Barry Allen, aka The Flash, played by Glee alum Grant Gustin. As seen in photos...
On Arrow, Starling City isn't really fond of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) right now because of his mother — along with Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) — are why half of The Glades was leveled during the Undertaking. But it's not just Oliver who will seek the public's support as he attempts to rebuild the city: Arrow will also need their help if he wants to be seen as a hero, not the killer vigilante they've come to know.
