The Following's Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon

The Following didn't just bring Kevin Bacon to series television for the first time, but it brought him and his co-stars closer together — as in their Bacon numbers.

Check out the scariest TV and movie serial killers

Now that they're working with Bacon, all of their Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon numbers is one, obviously. But what were they before? Bacon did not share the screen with any of his Following co-stars prior to the show and most of them are from a younger generation and/or are newcomers, so you might assume that they'd have a high Bacon number. But based on...read more

American Horror Story's Lily Rabe on Nora's Heartbreak, Head Wound

When we last saw the ghost of Nora Montgomery, formerly a '20s-era socialite who maintained her well-to-do lifestyle by feeding her flailing, drug-addicted surgeon husband starlets in need of an abortion, she was telling Ben to man up and protect his baby from crazy Hayden! (At least, he thinks the thing inside Vivien is his...)

American Horror Story's Lily Rabe, who plays the original owner of and oldest ghost in Casa Harmon, tells TVGuide.com that modern-day Nora is more of a haunted, rather than haunting, spirit.read more

The Birthday Present

Welcome back Dirty Sexy Moneyites The Darlings were back in full swing no villainous stone left unturned This ep started out where it ended A birthday for Nick on the Darlings yacht turns into a nightmare but not the one expected Paddy and Tripp have been reconciled Lisa is missing and then turns up looking stunning but only after a very meaningful glance between Karen and Nick Ellen is also missing and spoken of as alcoholically indisposed again And Tripp hands over the keys to the yacht to Nick Nick thanks Tripp Has he crossed over to the dark side Lets back it upSimon and Karen are still at it and although she is spying for Daddy Simon tells her he loves her She says Thank you which is hilarious Ive done it You probably have too Anyhow anyone who seems as sweet and trusting as Simon cannot be trustworthy To hide the fact that she was toying with his mobile she picks up a crystal swan and asks Simon to tell he read more

I'm really enjoying Dirty ...

Question: I'm really enjoying Dirty Sexy Money, but while I've always enjoyed Jill Clayburgh, I can't help thinking she's been miscast on the show. She plays her character as though she's been in a Valium-induced haze for the last 30-plus years, and I don't think that's the intention of the writers. I think someone like Susan Sullivan would've been much stronger and believable in the part. Your thoughts? Answer: I don't really agree, much as I adore Susan Sullivan, who no doubt would have brought a campier panache to the role. But not only is Jill Clayburgh age-appropriate, I think her attitude is perfect for Letitia, a woman who has been almost mummified by privilege and who has lived for years in the pain of an unacknowledged love affair. There is an emotional shell around her, for sure, more fueled by alcohol than pills, I'd think, but I don't look at this as ennui. I love the scenes she shares with Donald Sutherland. There's real affection there, but also a lot of hurt. This coupl ... read more

“The Nutcracker”

Im not sure how many more eps of Dirty Sexy Money are in the can but I am worried we are going to get stuck in the middle of a serious cliff hangar I suspected when Tripp got on the phone and told the person on the line to find out what Simon wanted with the Darlings financials that it was Karen But I wasnt really sure until the last scene So if shes getting busy with Simon for her Dad then what are her reasons Is it just to get Nick Walking into the Nutcracker crying certainly got his attention Though I think Tripps reasons are far more business related And theres some question as to whether Tripp isnt using Nick to make it seem though hes protecting Karen from Simon And speaking of which Simon inviting Karen over to meet his ex was a little mean he could have warned her at least Because if he is just using her then why did he want to get approval from his ex unless Could the Princess be in cahoots with him aga read more

“The Watch”

Its all happeningOh how I hate to gloat but way back in the second episode of Dirty Sexy Money The Lions I offered the following Did we see a tiny glimmer of kindness from the bitter Brian when he sent the boy to bed Perhaps he and Nick are half-brothers Or could it be that Tish and Dutch had two children Brian and Nick the other set of twins Hmmm Tooting ones horn is so unbecoming but TOOT TOOT Many of you had the same idea as well so Im sure I wasnt the first to think it I just got to point it out Good to know were all on the same track Im still not 100 certain that Tish isnt somehow Nicks mom as well The boys are the same age And Nicks mother was quick to dismiss him Once again I say HmmmSo we have confirmation that Brian and Nick are brothers if we didnt know before the show started we should have been able to tell as they strode side by side into the courtroom be read more

“The Country House”

If there was ever a thrill-a-minute Dirty Sexy Money tonights episode was the one Simon Elder has a different name one I imagine starts with the letter C no doubt I could not believe that he had the cahones to dynamite the old Darling Plaza Has he no heart Has he not seen those touching scenes of Tripp waxing nostalgic about the 15-story building he once called home Ah cruelty As if that wasnt shocking enough Ellen really pulled the rabbit out of the hat when she shot Paddy in the leg and boy did he deserve it We knew she had it in her when she invited Carmelita to tea and yet it was a complete surprise when she pulled the trigger It was the emotional relationship with Carmlita that pushed Ellen over the edge more than the sexual one More power to you sister Patrick was such a mamby-pamby during Ellen and Carms meeting it begs the question how does a guy like Patrick have two women fighting over him Ellens face when read more
