Blue Bloods: A Cop Show — And a Family Drama

Blue Bloods

It's easy to look at CBS' newest cop drama, Blue Bloods, and assume it's just the latest entry in the network's long line of police procedurals. It's easy, but wrong.

The series, which focuses on a family of New York cops, will certainly deliver the case-of-the week storytelling that has made CBS the No. 1 network. But it's the family drama that inspired veteran producer Leonard Goldberg to bring this story to television.

Fall Preview: Get scoop on all the must-watch new shows

"I thought about two kinds of shows I always loved doing: police shows and family shows, and I thought, 'No one's ever done one that combined both, so maybe this is the time,'" Goldberg tells TVGuide.com, adding that Norman Rockwell's famous Thanksgiving painting provided a second bit of inspiration... read more

Tool Time: Eastbound & Down's Danny McBride on Playing the Jerk You Root For

Eastbound and Down

Kenny Powers had earned our pity by the end of Eastbound & Down's first season. A star in his own mind, and a blatant blowhard, Kenny mostly offended and grossed us out. (While also hilarious, his antics are too crude to enumerate here.)

And yet, we found ourselves sympathizing with the guy. The washed-up baseball player had suffered humiliations — most of his own making — that tugged at our admittedly easily tugged-upon heartstrings. Then he hit a new low in the finale: rejected by Tampa and compelled to drive off into the sunset alone.

But when Eastbound & Down returns Sunday at 10:30/9:30c on HBO, Kenny will be reborn. We talked to executive producer and star Danny McBride about relocating Kenny to Mexico, cockfighting, and finding the heart in a total tool.

Supernatural: Sam Is One Angry Dude Upon His Return From Hell

Supernatural

Supernatural just wouldn't be the same demon-hunting show if Sam (Jared Padalecki) really died after that fall into hell. The man he is now is a stark contrast to what we've seen over the last five seasons.

"I come back much less lovey-dovey," says Padalecki, "and more like, 'All right. I've been to hell a couple times, I've been to heaven. I've died, I've come back, I've done this, and I've done that. [Now] Sam's more no bullsh--."
