Fixer, fix thyself. Easier said than done in the gaudy cesspool of soul-sucking mendacity we call Hollywood, where Ray Donovan plies his gruff trade as the strong and silent go-to problem-solver of the stars. Showtime's Ray Donovan (Sunday, 10/9c), the summer's best and boldest new show, is a Scandal for the serious-minded: outrageously compelling and teeming with sinister surprise, yet never seeming crazily sensational as it goes to emotional and violent extremes.
Liev Schreiber is joking that he could use a Ray Donovan right about now. The title character Schreiber plays on Showtime's new drama is a fixer for the Los Angeles elite — the guy you call when your agent, lawyer, manager, publicist, Pilates instructor and raw-food chef can't help you with a crisis. A high-priced-hooker habit? A taste for drugs? A gorgeous corpse in the bathtub? That's when Ray steps in with a plan.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt brought his A-game— and some very strangely shaved facial hair — for his first time hosting Saturday Night Live.
In the most memorable sketches of the evening, The Dark Knight Rises actor played the son of the Dos Equis beer's faux spokesman, the self-styled Most Interesting Man in the World. Among his special abilities? He can make a woman cringe just by entering a room and he can almost do a 180 on his razor scooter. So why did he make Tres Equis Beer? "Because he was never....

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.)
Video: Lone Star cast talks about the pilot
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. ...
At Fox's fall TV party, I shocked the stars of the net's new Texas-set soap, Lone Star, when I clued them into TNT's plans to revive the 1977-1991 prime-time soap Dallas as a new series focusing on the sons of J.R. and Bobby Ewing. When Fox first announced Lone Star, they, too, billed their show as an updated take on Dallas.
"What?!" said Lone Star's top hunk, James Wolk. "Talk to me about this. That's fantastic. It's a good thing we're...
