A half-hour comedy about a woman named Reba who splits from her longtime husband after she learns he's been cheating on her? Yes, Reba McEntire's new ABC series Malibu Country sounds a tad (read: a lot) like her old series, The CW's Reba.
But the show's executive producers, including Reba executive producer Kevin Abbott, insist this is not just a redo. "We don't just want to do...

NCIS fans, your cries for more McGee stories have been heard.
The hit CBS procedural has cast four-time Emmy winner Lily Tomlin to play Penelope, the grandmother of Sean Murray's Agent Timothy McGee. She will appear early in the show's ninth season....
Escapism is USA Network's specialty, especially in the busy summer season, and rarely achieved more effortlessly than in the appealing Tuesday night combo of White Collar and Covert Affairs. Tonight's unusually ambitious Affairs episode (10/9c) is a great escape for several reasons. It takes us far away, to exotic Istanbul — filmed on location (not exactly an everyday occurrence on a basic-cable budget), and having just returned from that region a week ago, I assure you it's as fabulous as it looks here — and as an added bonus, we're in very good company, because the story focuses on the show's not-so-secret weapon, scene-stealer Christopher Gorham's affable blind CIA agent Auggie Anderson...

Fiona Wallice is affected, self-entitled and narcissistic. She is a former businesswoman who stumbled into therapy and then when she found other people's lives too tedious to tolerate, she modified her job into a new "treatment modality," she calls "Web Therapy." Give her three minutes and she'll give you ... something, even if it's just further confusion.
Fiona is the character Lisa Kudrow developed alongside Don Roos and partner Dan Bucatinsky for Web Therapy, an Internet series that bowed on L/Studio in three-minute bursts in 2008, and has now been converted into a cable series for Showtime by combining webisodes and fleshing out previously unseen aspects of Fiona's personal life.
At the show's heart is Kudrow, who spends nary a minute off-screen. Web Therapy (Tuesday, 11/10c, Showtime) finds Kudrow doing that thing that is uniquely hers...

Lily Tomlin already has six Primetime Emmys and one Daytime Emmy, but that didn't make her nod as guest actress in a drama for Damages any less sweet. But she was just as deeply disappointed that the series, which has likely been canceled, did not get acknowledged in the best drama category. "I was just sick about that. That kind of took the steam out of it," she tells TV Guide Magazine. The best thing about playing her character, Marilyn, was "that she was not...
Cheers to Royal Pains for keeping the spirit of Damages alive. FX may not have renewed its superb legal thriller, but two of its alums have found summer jobs on USA's breezy medical dramedy. Campbell Scott, so chilling as Joe Tobin—the WASP Michael Corleone—on Season 3 of Damages, has reprised his recurring Royal Pains role as Boris, the cagey billionaire with ...
Damages is trying something a little different for its third season: Patty without Ellen.
Check out photos of the Damages cast
When the gripping FX legal thriller returns (Monday, Jan. 25 at 10/9c), Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) won't have her protégé-nemesis, Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne), at her side. After finally getting Patty to admit she tried to have Ellen killed, Ellen has made good on her promise and left Hewes and Associates in her rearview mirror.
Or so she thought...
