Lie to Me Boss: We've Made Promises for Season 4

Lie to Me's Season 3 finale dares to ask the question: What if Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg had killed one of his closest friends and partners?

VIDEO: Jesse Eisenberg and Mark Zuckerberg finally meet on Saturday Night Live

Truthfully, the episode has nothing to do with Facebook, but you can't help but notice the parallels between it and the Oscar-nominated film, The Social Network, which explores the complicated personal and legal entanglements behind the founding of the most popular website on the Internet.

Paul Reiser Plans Sitcom Return

Paul Reiser is mad about cars. Or, more specifically, a car dealership. OK, even more to the point, he's mad about a sitcom pilot he's currently developing for CBS about a guy who sells cars for a living. At the same time, the Mad About You alum is happy to be bringing The Thing About My Folks — which he wrote and produced, and in which he plays son to one of his idols, Peter Falk — to DVD. Reiser found a few minutes to speak with about his new TV foray (including whether there's a role in it for Falk), and the very special "extra" included in the Folks DVD. I just wanted to amend read more
