Edward Bowers is no saint on NBC's Deception, and even Tate Donovan, who plays the surly CFO, admits as much. But is he capable of murdering his own sister?
Everyone's a suspect on NBC's Deception, the freshman whodunit series about young detective Joanna Locasto (Meagan Good), who goes undercover to find out who killed her childhood best friend, Vivian Bowers. Leading the way in ethical dubiousness is Robert Bowers (Victor Garber), the family patriarch and Vivian's father. By the show's third episode, viewers know that Robert is not only championing a new drug that has exhibited deadly side effects in trial patients, but also recently ended an affair with his secretary, fired her, and then scared her into silence by dispatching an employee to break both of her brother's knees with a hammer. Robert hires Joanna as his personal assistant, thus providing her with an inside track to the family's professional and personal inner workings — but how much does he know about her true motives?
Read our full interview with Garber to get his take on Robert's capacity for evil, his on-screen marriage, and the one thing he thinks could tear the Bowers family apart.
Victor Garber and Rainer Andreesen
Victor Garber wasn't planning on publicly coming out, but when he was confronted about his sexuality, the Deception actor confirmed that he is in fact gay.
During an interview with Garber, blogger Greg Hernandez asked the Alias star about something he'd read on Wikipedia: that Garber lived with his longtime boyfriend Raineer Andreesen.

The one thing a potential guilty pleasure can't afford to be guilty of is boredom. Just look at the current standard-bearer: ABC's outrageous Scandal, with its whiplash plotting and rat-a-tat-tat dialogue delivered at such hyperspeed you don't have time to dwell on the berserk absurdities, because you're having such a blast. NBC's tepid new mystery-soap hybrid Deception (10/9c) deceives itself if it thinks it belongs in that gonzo company. It even pales next to the diminished second season of Revenge, which needs to refocus on the Emily-vs.-Graysons dynamic and forget the Initiative — yawn — ever existed.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Neil Patrick Harris, Britney Spears and Ricky Martin — Glee has never had a problem luring A-list talent to the halls of McKinley High for guest-starring roles. And the roles of the glee clubbers' parents have been no exception. In its first three seasons, the Fox musical has nabbed comedy pioneers (Carol Burnett), Broadway vets (Victor Garber, Idina Menzel), sci-fi stars (Jeff Goldblum) and even produced an Emmy nominee (Mike O'Malley). Now that there are a new group of seniors set to rule the school — or at least the choir room — this season on Glee, could meeting Blaine's dad and Artie's mom be far behind? The cast shared their top choices to play their TV parents...
Web Therapy's Fiona Wallice is crude, rude and she finally wants to become a better person in Season 2. But can she?
"Fiona sees her sister (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) for therapy and her sister destroys her, but in an unobvious way," Lisa Kudrow, who plays Fiona, tells TVGuide.com. "So Fiona starts rethinking her whole life and the next time we see her she's in bed, in tears, no makeup, pajamas — just a mess. And we've never seen her like that."

And unsurprisingly, it will be short-lived.
J.J. Abrams is known for creating shows filled with twists and plotlines that are hard to comprehend, but that won't be the case on his new NBC series Revolution, star Billy Burke says.
Upfronts: Check out NBC's new fall lineup
"You're not going to be that confused, actually," Burke told TVGuide.com on the NBC upfront red carpet. "It's ... linear and not hard to follow."

Question: Thanks for your intelligent and frankly hilarious reviews! I especially love that you highlight lesser known but completely fantastic gems on networks like PBS! I'm thrilled the days of sub-par, toast-dry programming on PBS seem to be slowly going the way of the Titanic. Query: Are my Brit-Geek friends and I the only ones this side of the pond absolutely chomping at the bit for the month of May and the return of BBC's Sherlock on PBS' Masterpiece Mystery? Obviously, I'm biased, but ...
