Weekend TV Review: Bountiful, Resurrection, Cosmos

Cicely Tyson

Just try telling Carrie Watts that you can't go home again. This elderly Texan, determined to make her way back to a town that time and everyone but she has forgot, bristles with restless gumption, fueled by an indomitable spirit that erupts in hymns she can't stop humming — or singing, as in a memorable scene set in a deserted bus station after midnight.

On Broadway, where Cicely Tyson won a Tony Award last year for her luminous performance as Carrie in a revival of The Trip to Bountiful, audiences often joined in as she sang "Blessed Assurance" in the play's rapturous high point. And for a moment, in Lifetime's languid movie adaptation (Saturday, 8/7c), you might find your own living room transformed into a choir loft.

Why ABC's 666 Park Avenue Is Not American Horror Story Lite

Rachael Taylor and Dave Annable

With the success of American Horror Story on cable, it's not surprising that broadcast networks would take another stab (no pun intended) at bringing a new horror story to the masses.

ABC will attempt to do just that on Sunday nights with 666 Park Avenue, a mystery drama based very loosely on the Gabriella Pierce novel of the same name. In the series, an innocent Midwestern couple, Henry (Dave Annable) and Jane (Rachael Taylor), get hired as resident managers of a The Drake, an Upper East Side apartment building in New York owned by Gavin (Terry O'Quinn) and Olivia Doran (Vanessa Williams). Unbeknownst to them, the residents have all made deals with The Devil to have their desires fulfilled.

Exclusive First Look: 666 Park Avenue Gets Sexy, But There’s a Devilish Twist

666 Park Avenue

"Are we going to be OK here?"

That's a line the characters of a horror show don't often ask themselves, but Jane (Rachael Taylor) says it to Henry (Dave Annable) just after moving into The Drake in the series premiere of ABC's 666 Park Avenue.

Gavin (Terry O'Quinn) and Olivia Doran (Vanessa Williams), the owners of the chic Upper East Side apartment building, hire the innocent Midwestern couple to be the building's resident managers. 

Unbeknownst to them, the residents have all made deals with the devil to have their desires fulfilled. (And some desires, like in the clip below, are too hot for TV!) read more

666 Park Avenue's Terry O'Quinn Plays a "Sharecropper on the Plantation of Evil"

Terry O'Quinn and Vanessa Williams

Terry O'Quinn believes the capacity for evil exists in everyone's "color wheel," and he'll be exercising one shade playing building owner Gavin Doran on ABC's upcoming drama 666 Park Avenue.

"My theory is that Gavin is kind of a sharecropper on the plantation of evil," the actor told reporters Friday at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews. "He plants the seeds, but he only gets half the harvest."

Critic's Notebook: ABC's Fall Lineup

Emily VanCamp

"Why just watch if you can feel?" As new-season slogans go, ABC's feels ... well, a bit clingy and demanding. Back off, ABC. I'll feel you when I'm good and ready.

But the proof is in the programming, and ABC's new fall schedule — unveiled during Tuesday's Lincoln Center upfront presentation — feels like something I'll be spending a fair amount of time analyzing, and perhaps even enjoying, in the season to come. (See the full lineup here.)

Desperate Housewives Episode Recap: "Give Me the Blame/Finishing the Hat"

Desperate Housewives

We're finally here, folks: the end of our time on Desperate Housewives' Wisteria Lane. It has been eight long seasons of tragedy, tawdriness and tomfoolery, and it all comes down to this. But before we can kiss the ladies goodbye, there is still much left to resolve: Bree's on trial for the murder of Alejandro; Lynette and Tom Scavo are still separated; Julie Mayer is about to give birth; Renee and Ben's wedding is imminent; and Mrs. McCluskey's health has taken a turn for the worst. (Not Mrs. Landingham!) So rather than belabor every detail of the bloated two-hour finale, here's what I'm going to do: I'm going to skip to the end and tell you where everyone ends up.
