What can we expect when Gotham returns? — Matty
Even though Gordon will be working a new gig at Arkham Asylum, it won't take him long to make a new friend: Dr. Leslie Thompkins (guest star Morena Baccarin), who, despite being a bit different from her comic book counterpart, is one of the good guys. "She doesn't fall into the corrupt Gotham world," Baccarin says. "She wants to make it a better place." Because she shares that mentality with Gordon, they become a natural pair. "They have this immediate connection... based on just how insane everything is around them," she says. "It's the beginning of a really great, great friendship." But now that Gordon's fiancée skipped town, could that "friendship" become more? "There's definitely chemistry — so I'm not going to say no!" Baccarin teases.

Now that Rumplestiltskin has joined forces with the Queens of Darkness on Once Upon a Time, how will they invade Storybrooke to find The Author? — Erin

"That's something that will be addressed pretty quickly," executive producer Adam Horowitz tells TVGuide.com.... read more

Even though The Newsroom's series finale featured a funeral, it was unlike the final send-offs of so many other death-obsessed cable dramas. Instead, the message of the final hour of Aaron Sorkin's latest (and last?) TV series was simple: Life goes on.

Postmortem:The Newsroom star breaks down that shocking death

Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels), MacKenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer) and their team of idealistic staffers gathered to say goodbye to their former boss Charlie Skinner (Sam Waterston), who died of a heart attack in the penultimate episode while fighting with new corporate owner Lucas Pruit (BJ Novak). But the finale still featured plenty of Charlie, as flashbacks illuminated... read more

Once Upon a Time's Lana Parrilla: Robin Hood Will Be Forced to Choose

Lana Parrilla, Sean Maguire

Now that the Snow Queen has counteracted the curse of Shattered Sight, Once Upon a Time is finally ready to let its Frozen story line go.

On the fairy-tale drama's midseason finale on Sunday (8/7c, ABC), we'll see one other benefit of Storybrooke returning to (relative) normalcy: Maid Marian (Christie Laing) will have thawed out after being frozen. That would normally make Robin Hood (Sean Maguire) a merry man, except for the fact that he lost his heart, figuratively, to Regina (Lana Parrilla). read more

Postmortem:The Newsroom Star Breaks Down That Shocking Death

The Newsroom usually milks its drama from the real-life news stories the show's fictional characters are covering. But on Sunday's penultimate episode, the drama hit much closer to home.

The episode — which jumps ahead 52 days since Will (Jeff Daniels) and Mackenzie (Emily Mortimer) tied the knot and Will went to jail for failing to reveal the name of his source — shows just how much the vibe at ACN has changed since Lucas Pruitt (guest star B.J. Novak) took ownership.... read more

How Professional Nerd Chris Hardwick's Career Culminated with @Midnight

Chris Hardwick

"It's 11:59 and 59 seconds..." Chris Hardwick announces at the opening of @midnight.

Except it's actually 4:30 in the afternoon on the efficiently tiny Hollywood set of Comedy Central's addictive game show, which airs Monday-Thursday at, well, midnight. For host and executive producer Hardwick, @midnight is the closest embodiment to who he is, aside from his stand-up comedy.

"@midnight has the most essential qualities of my personality," Hardwick tells TVGuide.com. "I love game shows, I'm a child of the Internet and comedy and also British panel shows..."
