Going Homeland (NBC Wishes) with State of Affairs

State of Affairs

It's a good thing Showtime's Homeland has regained a good deal of its suspenseful mojo this season — Sunday's episode involving a captured Saul (Mandy Patinkin) on the run from the Taliban was especially harrowing — because otherwise it would have a lot to answer for, having seemingly inspired NBC's disappointingly derivative State of Affairs, a clumsy and unconvincing star vehicle for a miscast Katherine Heigl (premiering Monday at 10/9c).

Homeland

Bye bye, Brody.

Once the creative team behind Homeland (finally) decided to kill off Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) in the Season 3 finale, they realized they could pretty much take the hit Showtime drama anywhere they wanted.

"There's no question that we closed a big chapter of the show last season when we dispatched with Nicholas Brody, and there's no question that at the beginning of this year, we really sat down and realized that it was tabula rasa," co-creator and executive producer Alex Gansa tells TVGuide.com.... read more

Weekend TV: Homeland, Survivor's Remorse, Mulaney

Rupert Friend, Claire Danes

If last season (and the last parts of the season before) left you wanting to run away from Showtime's Homeland, the good news is that it's safe to come back. The show may never again achieve the intensely suspenseful and emotional heights of year one, with its psychosexual tango between Carrie and the enigmatic war hero/possible terrorist tool Brody, and I'm still not convinced that basket-case analyst Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) should be posted anywhere hotter than Antarctica. But this Emmy-winning international spy thriller suddenly feels much more topical and urgent again in its fourth season, where the only remaining remnant of the Brody storyline is the infant daughter — a ginger baby, naturally (hauntingly Damian Lewis in aspect) — whom Carrie bore after witnessing the father's cruel fate.

VIDEO: Jimmy Kimmel Turns YouTube Hits Into Star-Studded Movie Trailers

Jimmy Kimmel

If you wished this year's Oscar nominees suffered from a severe lack of cats and double rainbows, Jimmy Kimmel has you covered. The late-night host gave YouTube videos the big-screen trailer treatment during his post-Oscars special — with the help of a few friends, of course.

Frank Underwood might be great at playing politicians, but Kevin Spacey was board to play the piano in the trailer for Ameowadeus. The actor took on the iconic role of Keyboard Cat in the fake trailer, starring opposite Christoph WaltzBen KingsleyGary Oldman and Mandy Patinkin.

Ask Matt: Deaths on Homeland and Sons, the Globes, Nikita, Doctor Who

Homeland

Question: [RETROACTIVE SPOILER ALERT FOR THOSE NOT KEEPING UP] I'm watching Homeland and Sons of Anarchy more out of habit than passion these days, after what I thought were disappointing seasons for both. But even so, I was startled when their seasons ended on such grim notes in December, with the violent deaths of major characters. Which surprised you more: Brody's execution as Carrie bore witness on Homeland or Tara's brutal murder at Gemma's hands on Sons? Or did you see each of these events as inevitable? On the same note, which show do you think is better positioned to bounce back from these game-changers, or did they maybe (and I know you hate the expression) jump the shark? — Cass
