Rebecca Romijn will star in The Librarians, which follows...
Noah Wyle is back on call. The ER alum plays Dr. Evans, a mad scientist in Davenport's secret laboratory, on the Dec. 2 episode of the Disney XD sitcom Lab Rats.
TNT has renewed Falling Skies for a fourth season, the network announced Tuesday.
Falling Skies, which has been...
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.
There's a lot of catching up to do as the third season of TNT's alien-invasion sci-fi action series Falling Skies gets underway Sunday, with a two-hour opener (9/8c) understandably if regrettably heavy on exposition in between the elaborate battle scenes. As reported in TV Guide Magazine's current Sci-Fi Preview issue, and emphasized for what seems at least a dozen times during the premiere, seven months have passed since last season's surprise ending, when a new alien force introduced itself to the human ...
The third season of Falling Skies could turn into either War of the Worlds or E.T. — which just happen to be two movies directed by Steven Spielberg, an executive producer of the TNT alien-invasion series. A new ally from outer space has given the human resistance the upper hand in their battle for survival against the Espheni, but not everyone is so trusting, especially given recent evidence of a traitor in their midst.
While America prepares to vote for its next Commander in Chief, TNT's Falling Skies has tapped a classic TV dad to play its president. Stephen Collins, best known as 7th Heaven's wise Rev. Eric Camden, will appear in ....
Robert Sean Leonard
House's Robert Sean Leonard is heading back to television.
Leonard has joined Falling Skies' third season for a five-episode stint, TV Line reports.
Following, some thoughts on another very busy weekend of summer TV. (At this point, I'm almost looking forward to the fall season starting, so I can catch my breath.)
CHI-TOWN CHICANERY: Corruption, mendacity, a thick smog of cynicism. Ain't we got fun? And so the audaciously downbeat political drama Boss returns to Starz (Friday, 9/8c), anchored and dominated yet again by Kelsey Grammer's tremendous performance as Chicago mayor (aka "boss" man) Tom Kane. A self-righteous bastard and unrepentant bully, this Machiavellian manipulator is notorious for "sacrificing that which is most precious for his political survival" (including sending his own daughter to prison and having his once-trusted turncoat adviser killed). Juggling more baggage than O'Hare during a blizzard, Kane is also beset by demons, manifesting as visions and hallucinations and ghosts, all symptoms of a debilitating brain disease — or maybe it's just good old guilt.
NBC will surely miss the Olympics ratings bump once the Games are over, with closing ceremony set for Sunday, but the rest of TV is more than ready to get back to business. Even as the torch is being snuffed on NBC, the lights are going on elsewhere.
Including on AMC, which airs one of the most gripping episodes to date — and that's saying something — of its dark masterpiece Breaking Bad (10/9c), in conjunction with the return of the drearily dour Western Hell on Wheels (9/8c) for its second season.
