For his first TV venture, superstar romance novelist and screenwriter Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook, A Walk to Remember) saddles up to executive produce a Civil War Western with a feisty female in the crosshairs. The Lifetime movie (and backdoor pilot) Deliverance Creek (airing Saturday, Sept. 13 at 8/7c) stars Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) as widowed mother Belle Gatlin Barlowe, who turns outlaw to protect her family and land from corrupt bankers.

On this final night of the official broadcast season, let's focus on the good times, shall we? Two of TV's finest comedies, ABC's underappreciated The Middle and the much-honored Modern Family, go out with a flourish, and perhaps a sniffle or two, as the Heck and Dunphy/Pritchett clans experience life-changing and/or affirming ceremonies likely to strike home for many viewers.

What summer vacation? It's not like TV took much of a break during what used to be the off-season. But with Labor Day behind us, and a handful of major fall premieres just a week away, here's a quick look at today's playlist.
In daytime (check local schedules), Kelly Ripa officially unveils her new permanent co-host on Live! With Kelly. Who could it possibly be? (Kidding; the news leaked a while back. But just in case you managed to stay out of the loop, why spoil it now?)
There's one good thing about paranoia: It never gets old. A&E's four-hour miniseries Coma, based on the 1977 best-selling novel by Robin Cook and the hit 1978 movie, stars Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) as a medical intern who joins a legendary Atlanta hospital and discovers something very sinister going on.

The revival of Broadway's Funny Girl has been postponed, the New York Times reports.
"We have made the extremely difficult decision today to postpone our production of 'Funny Girl,' producer Bob Boyett said in a statement. "Given the current economic climate, many Broadway producing investors have found it impossible to maintain their standard level of financial commitment."
Torchwood: Miracle Day

A hole in the world is the villain? The Blessing tells Jilly she's "right"? Rex is immortal?
So many burning questions linger after Friday's finale of Torchwood: Miracle Day, the end to an ambitious 10-episode season that had big things to say about politics, the media and, of course, mortality itself. TVGuide.com spoke with Jane Espenson -- who wrote or co-wrote half of the season's episodes for series executive producer Russell T. Davies — about Jilly's curious revelation, the distinct lack of Torchwood's usual otherworldly baddies and why Captain Jack and Angelo didn't get to say goodbye.
Lauren Ambrose is Broadway's new Funny Girl.
It's a huge and legendary role to fill, as Barbra Streisand originated it in the musical's first Broadway run back in 1964. She also starred in the 1968 film adaptation and won the Best Actress Oscar.

Question: WOW is the main word I use for Breaking Bad so far this season! I am amazed how FAST this season started up and I know it will get better and better!

Any spoilers regarding ...
When Jane Espenson was first approached about joining the writing staff of Torchwood, the veteran television writer whose credits include Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the rebooted Battlestar Galactica had just one thought: "It's going to be hard to get stakes higher than aliens wanting to gobble up the children of Earth."
Fortunately for fans waiting to see how immortal alien hunter Captain Jack Harkness would return after suffering the devastating losses he did in 2009's Torchwood: Children of Earth, series creator Russell T. Davies had just the ante-upping answer. For the U.K. hit's fourth season, (premiering Friday at 10/9c on Starz), he'd move the action from Cardiff, Wales across the pond (and into the bigger-budget land of pay cable), transform actor Bill Pullman into a worldly "monster," and hit Jack with a head-spinning reality in which everyone is cursed with living forever — except, suddenly, him.
