Hey everyone. This is Aldis Hodge, aka Hardison, and as you know, Leverage is definitely back in action on our new night, Sundays at 9/8c on TNT. And then we give you another episode at 10/9c.
Last week, we gave you double...
Jason Lee and Chris Jericho
The good news about this year's bumper crop of new summer TV: There's plenty of it. (I spent much of the last few days wading through a mid-July burst of new crime-drama premieres.) The bad news: There's too much of it, and too little of it — at least from what I've seen so far — is any good. (I'm talking about the brand new stuff here, which keeps on coming whether we particularly want it to or not.) At this point, I'm beginning to pine for good old repeats.
Tuesday night provided two particularly painful examples: TNT's dreary Memphis Beat crime drama and ABC's insipid Downfall game show.
Memphis is particularly disappointing...
On the season premiere of Memphis Beat, we receive quite a welcome into the bluesy city of Memphis! From an Elvis impersonator (next office party anyone?), to a bloody Slurpee mess (eww!), to a boob lamp (where can I get one of these?) we know we may not get the expected. What we do know is the good ol' boy detectives seem to have the run of their precinct, but change is coming in the form of a new lieutenant.

Do you know which Desperate Housewives kid was switched at birth? — Daniel
MICKEY: Our source is saying that the new season will raise several possibilities, and that we shouldn't jump to any conclusions based on this recasting. That said, Lynette's daughter Penny will have more heavy lifting to do this season, acting-wise...
Michael Vartan, HawthoRNe
The med drama HawthoRNe checks back in for Season 2 tonight at 9/8c on TNT with Jada Pinkett Smith's supernurse Christina working at a new hospital. And for Michael Vartan's hotter-than-a-fever Dr. Tom Wakefield, that could mean a prescription for romance....
Jason Lee in Memphis Beat
From playing a down-on-his-luck lottery winner in My Name is Earl to portraying a detective by day and Elvis showman by night in Memphis Beat, Jason Lee tells TVGuide.com how Beat made him return to television and how it compares to his...
The Leverage crew has gotten out of more than its fair share of sticky situations before, but what will the team do now that Nate (Timothy Hutton) is behind bars?
During a visit to the TVGuide.com video studio, Hutton was more than happy to share what his character has up his sleeve, much to the chagrin of his co-stars Gina Bellman and Beth Riesgraf.

Hutton says his character's possible prison break plays into a bigger theme of the entire season. "None of us can do what we do alone," he says. "We can all do it as experts, but we've come to really rely on one another as a team." Plus: Hutton give lots of juicy details about...
Timothy Hutton, Leverage
For Oscar-winning actor Timothy Hutton, agreeing to star in TNT's Leverage wasn't a tough decision — at least not after he read the script.
"It was a real opportunity to play a person who had these awful things happen involving his son and the destruction of his marriage — someone who needed a real breakthrough in their life," Hutton says. "I wondered how this tragedy would manifest itself in him and the choices he would make."
Look back at Hutton's most memorable roles
Hutton plays Nate Ford, the leader of a crack team of cons who use their skills to take from the rich and powerful and give back to those they've wronged. But despite Nate's noble intentions, he hasn't always made the best choices. Case in point: When Season 3 begins (Sunday at 9/8c), Nate is in jail...
