Weekend TV Review: HBO's Girls Rule, Titanic Sinks Again, NYC 22

Jemima Kirke, Lena Dunham, Zosia Mamet

It took a special species to rescue HBO from several years in the comedy doldrums, when most everything (except sporadic seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm) felt overly precious or ironic and hardly ever funny.

David Boreanaz to Guest-Star on Downton Abbey?

David Boreanaz

Could David Boreanaz land a role on the prestigious British drama Downton Abbey simply by asking for one? Fans will have to wait and see, but the Bones star thinks he'd make a great suitor for Lady Mary Crawley (Michelle Dockery), and he's taken to Twitter to ask Julian Fellowes, the show's writer and executive producer, if he agrees. read more

Downton Abbey Creator Julian Fellowes Raises the Titanic

Julian Fellowes

Going through Downton Abbey withdrawal? Unfortunately, Mister Bates, the Dowager Countess and O'Brien won't be back for a third season on PBS until next January, but ABC hopes you'll bide that time by tuning in this spring to Titanic, the next project from Downton creator Julian Fellowes.

Downton Abbey Finale Preview: Love Among the Ruins

Downton Abbey

"It's good to remind people, love is love," says Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes. And more than 15 million viewers in the U.S. and U.K. are having a love affair with the palace-size hit, which has reinvigorated period drama and earned raves around the world (100 countries have acquired rights to air the show). Far from a sophomore slump, Season 2 of the sumptuous series about life among the British gentry and their servants during World War I has broadened the story's scope to take in the violence of the battlefields and the impact of the conflict on the residents both upstairs and down.

Ask Matt: Downton Abbey's Meanies, Remakes, Touch, Grey's Anatomy and More!

Question: I'm one of the last people one would expect to watch Downton Abbey, but after hearing the endless raves about it, I made it through the first season on DVD during a weekend, and a new episode is now one of the highlights of my TV-watching week. However, my question is about the "mean girls" (i.e. Thomas and Miss O'Brien). Sure, it's always fun to have a couple of mustache-twirling villains to root against, but unless I missed something, I guess they're supposed to be bad just for the sake of being bad. read more

Ed Westwick Tired of "Lovesick Puppy" Chuck, Ready for Gossip Girl to End

Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester

Last we saw Chuck Bass, he was so determined to bust up Blair's wedding (ah, young love) that he told some malevolent priest from Monaco that he'd revert back to his dastardly scheming ways to do it. Which isn't so much what Blair wants, but Ed Westwick would love it.

That's because over the past two seasons of Gossip Girl, Chuck has been re-made into the heart-on-his-sleeve Romeo of the Upper East Side. His reformed self is still rich and pretentious, but the amoral playboy who once traded Blair for a hotel is long gone. Even his last fling last season with Raina turned into real love (if you take Blair out of the equation).

Gossip Girl "End of the Affair" postmortem: Burning questions answered!

"I feel like the old Chuck was a playboy and that's what I would have loved to have been," Westwick told TVGuide.com at the CW winter TV preview earlier this month. The 24-year-old British actor laughed before adding, "Maybe... read more
