Revolution Claims Its First Victim, Drops Another Bombshell

Tracy Spiridakos

Monday's episode of Revolution will claim the show's first victim.

The latest promo for NBC's new drama dropped the news that one member of our motley crew won't make it out of the episode alive. "Obviously, it's not Charlie [Tracy Spiridakos]," executive producer David Rambo tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. And although there are some clues as to who may be taking a dirt nap, Rambo believes the death will have a significant impact. read more

Watercooler: A Creaky Bag of Bones

Bag of Bones

Bag of Bones? More like pile of crap.

In last night's conclusion to A&E's overlong, underwhelming, four-hour adaptation of Stephen King's equally blah novel, the ghosts got off way easier than viewers, who had to live through laughable dialogue, clichés galore and even a few criminal rip-offs of King's own work.

The Guide to Tuesday TV: Sons of Anarchy and Covert Affairs Finales!

Oded Fehr

"You ask for a simple white Christmas ..." and everything goes to cartoon hell on Eureka, already the most animated of Syfy's quirky series, and a natural to be brought back for a one-night-only Christmas special, a gift for fantasy fans, packaged with similarly themed episodes of Warehouse 13 and Haven. The Eureka special (8/7c) is especially inventive, as the isolated mountain town's overtaxed Super Photon Generator interacts with a child's hologram-generating storybook, and abracadabra, everyone becomes a cartoon character (including Sheriff Carter's much-abused Jeep, cleverly and petulantly voiced by The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons). read more

Will American Horror Story Be a Hit for FX? A Look at the Recent History of Horror on TV

The Walking Dead, True Blood, Supernatural

Historically, horror hasn't scared up a great track record on TV. Supernatural series? Yes. Terrifying ones? No. The good news for FX, which on Wednesday launches American Horror Story, is that audiences seem to be growing braver. Millions have dared to peek out from behind their fingers, making hits out of The Walking Dead and True Blood. Even when Nip/Tuck dipped its scalpels into overt horror -- terrorizing us with sadistic serial killer The Carver -- it drew record numbers to FX.

But do viewers have the stomach for a haunted house dreamed up by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, who gave us both Glee and Nip/Tuck? read more
